    I didn't realize this before, because of the errata on almost with card with it, but a source of damage can deal damage to a creature or planeswalker without having the clause "any target" on it? Huh.

    Bought a foil Secret Lair: Artist Series: Johannes Voss box. Because you know, for the new beautiful Sliver Hivelord art! My third purchase I’ve ever made in this series!

    Interesting how when I asked MaRo about Slivers and Shocklands being in standard for at least a small window, he wanted me to clarify my question. If Shocklands are in the Unfinity set, maybe we are getting Slivers in Standard with Dominaria United.

    way too much *****.

    most of it doesn't even appeal to me because its universes beyond. this all right after we were supposed to be hyped for upcoming innistrad previews, which were hot on the heels of idk whatever the last set was that just came out, forgotten realms? they're getting difficult to track now too.

    its just too much. they answered complaints about product flood with a deluge.

    i should be hyped for a brothers war set. i loved the book, i've read the things every single year since it was first published. i loved all of that stuff. i've wanted a proper set for it for decades now... and yet... i don't give a ****. it'll just be more of the same turn offs. all the value at mythic, too many variant borders and arts, no time to actually digest and play with the set before we're on to the next thing.

    cool?

    i'm sure the pioneer decks will be turds that are a mediocre entry point to the format... and has that format even gained traction anywhere? does anyone even care? i'm sure there'll be 1 hot card just to make the kit sell.

    then theres universes beyond, thats just too much. way too much. i hate this idea. i'm not alone. now we get it jammed down our throats like... well use whatever metaphor you prefer but regardless, its not cool.

    i didn't like the forgotten realms setting, a lot of people didn't, so here's some baldur's gate about it but now its mixed with your commander cards so you commander players are forced into it. oh you bought so much! you love the setting! universes beyond is a hit! -its manipulative bull***** right here.

    it wouldn't be so bad except that these are also game pieces. these are also game pieces that are generally pushed. these are also game pieces that are generally pushed to sell product, so if you want to stay relevant and not get absolutely steam rolled by whoever at whatever event, you're sure as ***** buying into it. that's just not fair any more.

    frankly, as hyped as i should be for some of these products, i give zero ****s and this has gone a long way toward turning me off completely. right now i'd rather spend my money on literally any other game that doesn't bombard me with new crap every single month. that doesn't exploit fomo. that doesn't push new cards and force me into them to stay relevant.

    this kind of pace and pigheadedness will be the thing that destroys magic on a long enough timeline. i'm not a sky is falling type person, haven't been in 27 years of playing... but thats how i feel after this past year and seeing what the next one will be like.


    Just only play MTG with the family for holidays. Problem solved. That's how I'm treating the game building decks and anything WoTC does never interferes with that fun approach. I swear, people feel like they have to play competitive Magic to play the game....

    Ahem...


    *puts on Werewolf_Rawr puppet*
    More Werewolves pls.
    *puts on Sliverologist puppet*
    More slivers pls.
    *puts on Tiro of Miletus puppet*
    More sea monsters pls.

    Now that we’ve covered the obvious, does anyone have any creature type hopes or predictions that they don’t base their entire “brand” around?


    LOL...LOL!!!
    You got us!

    If Slivers and Shocklands return in this standard, my poor wallet. OMG


    Shocklands == Ravnica only (mostly likely)(as they will need something to hype the return to return to return to return to ravnica)


    MaRo said Shocklands could return to standard without a trip out to Ravnica. There's nothing in their names specifying a plane. In fact, the Secret Lair: Shocklands were represented by a variety of planes.

    Not a fan of the old bordered Planeswalkers. Wall of text. I think the old border look could've still been used w/ the current templating of Planeswalkers. The starting loyalty box could still fit w/o breaking the text boxes border.


    The whole idea of it is to give us Planeswalkers reimagined before they would have been given errata to support how they would look in the past.

    Oh please oh please let there be Slivers in Dominaria United!! And let there be Shocklands in either Dominaria United, Streets Of New Capenna, or Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty!!! I'd buy new play sets of them all if they do appear in this Standard!!!

    Mark Rosewater said there will be plenty of tribal support and love for new and old tribes! I'm excited! I'm going to lose my mind if there's a chance Slivers return. Just a heads up for that to everyone on here!

    I’m ok with the Reserved List. I nearly have a play set of the ABUR dual lands, I’ll complete it in a year, hopefully. The only Reserved List cards I’d spend over a thousand dollars on are the power nine, maybe a foil Gaea’s Cradle, so I’m good.
