    posted a message on Chandra's Spellbook and Secret Lair Ultimate Edition (Enemy fetches) announced.
    Wotc is currently printing about two thousand new products a year, but is acting like it would just be *impossible* to print fetches in a (reasonably priced) booster product without forcing them into standard/pioneer. We get it, you think fetches shouldn't be in standard, that's fine, that doesn't mean they have to be kept $50+ per card forever.

    If they dont do one for international MENs Day i file a sexual harassment campaign against them.


    I mean, we KNOW they won't. lol This is WOTC we are talking about here. Not that I really care personally though anyways.



    Just for everyone clamoring for more male representation, I hear WotC is doing an extra special "All Incels Edition" - Ertai, Crovax, and Baral! Stay tuned!


    This set seems a pretty good deal for the Sisay, Meren and Ooona, and I like that $25 of the $50 goes to charity.

    posted a message on [TBD] AliasV preview - Shatter the sky
    It's actually kind of hilarious to me how half this thread so far has been about this card's application (or lack thereof) in commander.

    It's the best (unconditional) wrath in standard and we're worried about whether it is playable in a format with 42,583 wraths?!?

    Mana bases have been bending over backwards to accommodate Kaya's Wrath and that can stop after TBD goes live, thanks to this card.

    posted a message on New walker confirmed for theros beyond death
    I think this thread should be renamed. MaRo 100% did NOT confirm it is a new walker. The person asked "is it a new walker *or* someone we've seen before" and MaRo's answer was simply "yes :)" - it wasn't a yes or no question!

    He was possibly, maybe saying that it is both a new walker and someone we haven't seen before. Like some convoluted way. But it's just as likely he was simply jokingly not answering the question. Either way, we can't glean from this that the third walker is a new character. It certainly isn't confirmed by MaRo's post.

    posted a message on Judge Promos starting in 2020
    The watermark actually seems ok to me, but the smaller version as the set symbol is bad. Either way, the owl thing is weird and this isn't owls of ga'hool so why.

    That said, cool choices for cards, overall good art, and VERY creepy demonic tutor is all a plus for me.

    No, seriously, I'm REALLY concerned about all the white people upset by a black woman character in a trading card game. We need to help them out.

    posted a message on {ELD] Robber of the Rich (@JEDepraz spoiler)
    We'll have to wait and see what the rules text for the card actually is. If they didn't mean 'that card' but instead meant 'all cards exiled with ~", then they should have put that in the text.


    Nah. Gonti didn't need that text. The ability all resolves and is tied to the card you exile. So yes, you can play it on a different turn as long as you attacked with a rogue that turn.
    (Otherwise, why even bother with all that text, it could just say "play it this turn")

    edit: I don't understand why you think it would need to say "beyond the one you currently have exiled." Nothing about the ability even mentions or cares about the "current" exiled clause. That just isn't how it works. It would have said "the last card exiled with robin hood" if that's what it was limited to.

    If you blink your Gonti, the first card it exiled doesn't go away. You can still play that card. Even though Gonti's ability only refers to the specific card it exiles. That's because each time the ability triggers, the whole ability happens. So the card is exiled with the rider "during any turn you attack with a rogue, you can cast this."

    Hey cool combo

    Keep using the tap ability on your Scaretiller you change the text to “put a land card from your hand or graveyard ont the battlefield tapped”

    Should Abrade have been 1 mana to bolt or shatter?! Nah. Increase in cost is due to said flexibility. If it was lower cost it would be too good or be mythic.


    This wouldn't break limited if it was an uncommon.

    posted a message on Oko, Thief of Crowns
    Quote from leslak »
    Feels weird that they made him produce food instead of treasure tokens. He's a shapeshifter and an evil dude right? I thought evil dudes liked treasure, and it would work with the artifact swap part too. Here's to hoping food is like clue tokens, because I sure love card draw. Maybe its an artifact token with an etb and no other effects?


    Food Token :

    , sacrifice this food,T: Gain 3 life.

    just saying (before people find the rare spoiler for today, rare bird...)


    Ugh, is that really all it is? Is the food an artifact, or some other permanent type?
    I was hoping it would be modal, with sacrifice for either 2 life or a +1/+1 counter, or something like that.

    Anyway, the card seems kinda great even without the +2. That +1 can do a lot of work. *Especially* in commander, where turning an opponent's commander into a 3/3 but leaving it on the battlefield is far better than just killing it.

    The only resemblance that neo-nazi cosplayer has to Oko is that they're both skinny.


    Oh look, hate speech.


    Calling someone a neo-nazi is not hate speech.
