    I don't follow D&D so I can't comment on flavor accuracy, but I like this card. I was planning on building a Kwain, Itinerant Meddler deck and this seems just perfect for it.

    Braids compleated makes zero sense. Events in odyssey block happened Millenia before invasion from my recollection.

    Yawgmoth is defeated in 4205 and Odyssey block starts roughly 100 years later.
    https://mtg.fandom.com/wiki/Timeline


    But it still doesn't make sense that Braids would be compleated in modern Dominaria/Dominaria United, which is way after Odyssey block, right?. That does look a lot like her, but I don't know how she could survive this long to get compleated by new Phyrexia, and we didn't see any of her in Dominaria despite lots of other Odyssey block remnants or descendants making an appearance. (I also wouldn't draw too much from the collector booster box art, these tend to be far afield of how the cards look in their regular canonical art.)

    Braids is compleated because Wrenn compleated her .


    This makes even less sense.

    While we are naming hot old cards, River Merfolk. Needs a reprint with the exact same art.

    The *only* thing that I'd like to have in this is Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis getting new art. Hopefully they are a hidden extra card because they got snubbed when Breya, Atraxa, and Yidris got SL cards, and now we have a full blown Pride SL and no K&T to be seen. Fingers crossed my kings get some new treatment soon.

    Ooh that's a good point, I even had a Kynaios and Tiro commander deck that I loved, then took apart and now want to rebuild. I was hoping the secret card was a hot "bear token" to match the new bearscape but this would be even better.

    also i want a bearscape playmat

    Now THAT'S a great idea!!

    We are legion!

    Weird Q, and this goes for all the queerfolk here...are there any particular pieces in MTG that resonate with you?


    all resonate with me due to their fierce femininity.

    'buster

    Fellow gay here! Something about that Jhoira art really stuck with me, too. Aside from being an awesome card, I think that's part of why I wanted to build around her.

    As a gay guy I actually find this profoundly moving. I don't care if anybody will say this is just a marketing move to appeal the LGTB audience (especially because typically who say this are the first ones to not be lgbt supporting at all). This doesn't hurt anyone and the Trevor Project is exactly what the community actually and really need to get real help and support.

    I'm honored to be part of a game that loves me as much as I love it.

    100%

    Love this. I have to get it, for the Bearscape alone! That is hilarious!

    Also this drop and the discussion around it will be helpful for weeding out people that I wouldn't want in my life (or playing a card game with me) anyway Smile

    It seems like it would be incredibly frustrating to pilot this deck in paper if you were actually going off and doing your thing. I think Kros defense contractor is fine (and also very cool, love the design) but the editor in chief, the white enchantment, the other new cards... ugh.

    That said, a lot of the individual cards seem neat, if a bit unwieldy. I am thinking the new shard confluences are a little overpriced for what they do, but this one might be the best. Three proliferates at instant speed could do some wild things.

    Wow, I really like a lot of these. I think I want to make either a jund treasure/politics deck with Vazi (is she a set booster exclusive? ugh) or a weird reanimator-gifting deck with beamtown bullies - maybe both! Also JOLENE THE PLUNDER QUEEN wow I love.

    Also the white enchantment is great. I wish it cost 1WW or even WWW just because I want it to be something that mono/mostly white decks get to use and not just something that any deck running white will use. Glad white is getting this help though!

    Also, lethal scheme might be my new favorite black one-shot removal, at least for decks running a decent amount of creatures. The thought of getting a nearly-free removal spell that also loots multiple times is nice.

    After initially really not liking the wonky color fixing creature cycle, they are kind of growing on me. Some of them are actually pretty decent as creatures on their own.

    The fact that this isn't a story spotlight card is ... kind of telling.


    Is it? Lots of cards can be relevant to the story without being designated "story spotlight" and I really don't put much stock in that denotation. The art for this card was used in the final chapter of the main story.

    this must be a record.....

    just how many different damage based boardwipes are in, really?


    I was thinking the same thing. This is getting weird.

    I could see this being a player in commander, though. On many board states it could read "destroy all artifacts and creatures" and sometimes even better depending on what you have out. It has synergy with sacrificing treasures too, although it won't help you size the damage down if you're trying to avoid killing your one biggest creature.

    I really like the new white legend, neat incremental card draw for white.

    The truce seems pretty bad, because the opponent you choose has just as much control over breaking it as you do. I really it had an extra "you draw a card" at sacrifice when the opponent is the one breaking the truce. Would still consider it for a defensive group hug deck, though.

    Edited to add: putting commander-exclusive cards in these set boosters is really dumb and annoying.

    What exactly is the flavor or reference on this? Robot insect butler that's a massive brawler?

    This is the third damage-based sweeper in this set (so far!) which feels a little excessive to me. Could be nice though, it's inexpensive enough that you should be able to double-spell and cast a creature after it.

    Wow, this is ridiculous. Looks more like a rare, or a tri-color common.

    Quote from Ritokure »
    Three mana for a 3/1 that also comes with a 3/3? And it can also search potential combo pieces? Crap, this might be Modern playable.


    Dang, good point.

    Not quite a protean hulk for commander, because you can't get any number of cards with mana value X, but this is still nuts combo/value/tutoring ability in the command zone. Scary but also maybe kind of boring if it's just Naya combotime every time.
