    Quote from andyhall23 »
    Can you imagine if they actually allowed other artists making land like this


    I'd probably like them more if they were from a different artist. Just not a fan of Avon. Therese Nielsen, Noah Bradley, Rob Alexander. I'd much prefer just about anyone actually.

    One of my buddies and I were somewhat jokingly mildly obsessed with chupacabras back in the day, so this makes me laugh.

    Good lord, all the kvetching about "Wahhhhhh not for the MTG Cancer format". Not everything has to be for REEEEEEEDH. Complaining about Mana Drain? Really? What is wrong with you people? This set looks freaking bananas right now. If you think the $10 price point is too high, fine, valid complaint. You know what else is a valid complaint? $200 Mana Drains. I want Mana Drains. I don't have the income for Mana Drains. Now, maybe I can get Mana Drains. Maybe.

    Thoughtseize with original art: RAD!
    Mana Drain: DOUBLE RAD!
    Horizon Canopy: RAD! (Though I like the original better)
    Bogardan Hellkite: ...wat...
    Kokusho: RAD!

    Not really much else could make me happier for this set other than WotC saying "Oh yeah btw we're scrapping the reserved list here's some dual lands".

    Edit: HOLY BUTTS THE CRYPTIC REPRINT. Oh man new art that's an homage to the old art I love it. It looks GREAT. One of the few times I prefer new art to old.

    Ok thanks i didn't know that term.


    You didn't know the term "fast"? Like break...fast. The meal with coffee, coffee, and a side of coffee. That one.

    Ok I might still be groggy from waking up but this is really good, right? Like, am I reading this correctly? Quasi-Greed + Diamond Valley?

    "Look at how many times we fit the word Dinosaur on this card! Sweet!" only goes so far.


    It's almost DRAAAAAGGGGGOONNNSSSSS levels of cringe.

    I hate their article writing style so much.

    posted a message on Sword of Dungeons and Dragons (name only) - Other Hascon Exclusives Also in Unstable?
    Quote from necrogenesis »

    That's big news. No My Little Pony crossover.


    Considering everything else lately, that actually increases my opinion of WotC a little bit.

    posted a message on Ixalan FNM / Game Day changes
    Quote from orlouge82 »
    Soooo, they addressed the negative feedback from the FNM change on an article on the Mothership.

    The gist of it is, well, here, in Blake Rasmussen's own words:
    Let's take one of the comments I heard and the general sentiment among those who didn't like the change: "We just want relevant, playable FNM promos." The implication is that the player community as a whole will attend more FNMs if the promos are better. Except it's not true.


    So the answer is to make even *****tier promos? To remove data from their site? To request that other sites not provide deck lists and information? This ******* company. Someone above compared them to Games Workshop and my word, is it ever apt.

    posted a message on 2017 SDCC Planeswalkers revealed (including $180 pricetag!)
    Quote from JinxedIdol »
    Looks like it forms some sort of mural.


    Calling them Prophecies would have made too much sense I guess. If that name was a problem, hardly anyone remembers the expansion anyway. Laughing

    The Bolas print looks awesome, and I wish WotC would just drop the stupid ass style guides and let the artists loose a bit so we can have nice things like that again. I like the style of the promos too. Reminds me of Ascension which is a great game.

    As for the mural:

    Jace is going to get shot by the M:tG police after robbing a liquor store and assaulting the police with a psychic attack but he a good boy din' do nuffin.
    Liliana is going to be a Slave of Bolas because that is very original.
    Nissa is going to be cellmates with Emrakul.
    Chandra is going to be sick of being a discount Jaya Ballard, and go off and make a new group of friends because these other guys are total boring dorks.
    Gideon is going to get the Leshrac treatment, and we'll finally be rid of him for a set or two before he makes his triumphant return because M:tG story makes comic books look like Tolstoy.
