    • a new enchantment subtype


    Slant maro do you ever remember to read everything already shown before these? You did remember Dungeons was shown right?


    • a legendary creature that makes a legendary Hamster creature token


    That’s minsc and boo


    I'm going to buck the trend and say the new Subtype is Mythals, they are the most powerful enchantments mortals can do in the Forgotten Realms. Example Mythals enchant entire cities with multiple effects, like Mythal of the sea elf city Myth Nentir allows air breathers to breath water. Mythallar, the human version of Mythals, are responsible for allowing the Netherese to rip mountains of the earth, flip them over, and build cities on the bottoms of them while making them fly, or an mass producing special magic items that only work within the range of the Mythallar.

    Plus the Dungeons you get with the Bundles are over sized cards like Planes, Phenomenon, and simular none permanent cards. This tells me these don't actually go into your deck. I could be wrong.

    With tiefling and halfling becoming creature types then, the kithkin and azra cards will receive an errata?


    If you think having Kithkin, Halflings, Azra, and Tieflings are trippy, Hobbit will likely be added with the Lord of the Rings set.

    Doing a Mothers day secret lair nearly on Father's Day with no Father's Day Secret Lair is extremely disgusting, disrespectful and likely done on purpose.

    Love the Drizzt card but the Guen token should have been a 4/3 not a 4/1. Guen can take a beating before she has to return to the Astral Plane.

    As for Drizzt being GW it is spot on. He has shunned his Drow heritage and taken up with Mielikki a godess of nature. Perfect fit. Smile

    Lolth should have been a God as well. (Yeah I know she's a walker, but nevertheless)

    Love to see Breunor but I'm meh on his abilities.

    Lets bring on Wulfgar, Cattie Brie and Regis next. Smile


    Don't forget about Artemis Entreri and Jarlaxle Smile



    EDIT: I wonder if Elminster will be a legendary creature or a planeswalker.


    Battlehammer is an 2 colour Uncommon, so there could be a Kaldheim style 2 Colour Uncommon Legendary Creature Cycle themed around Legend of Drizzt characters, both allies and enemies of Drizzt, freeing up Rare and Mythic rare Legendary Creatures slots for none Legendary of Drizzt D&D/FR characters. The video said alot of D&D characters are in the set.

    So by doing this they can have a whole bunch of Drizzt Characters, but also have major Gods, Novels, Important NPCs, and Villians/Monsters in the book. Farideh, Gilgeam, Havilar, Mehan, Elminister, Mirt, Volo, Sune, Tzass Tam, Everis Cale, etc...

    I'm curious now, with Lolth spoiled as a walker, which gods will be creatures and which will be walkers?


    you know what I’m wondering now too

    because Tiamat is a creature when lolth is a walker so the gods in D&D got a little 50/50 wheel to spin on if they get a Walker status or creature status


    It could be because in 5e lore Tiamat is trapped in Hell, while Lolth goes where she pleases, to any plane she pleases.

    Ok thanks, it's trash then in anything outside of edh.


    Its still good against Vorinclex. Vorinclex is usually hard on enemy Sagas, but sometimes if you can get the Saga out right before an enemy gets Vorinclex out, you can benifit with some Sagas because it freezes them at just the ideal stage.

    I cast Akroan War to steal that creature that makes all creatures forests, and then they played Vorinclex freezing Akroan War at that stage, allowing me to keep the creature for as long as Vorinclex was on the field. This should work just as well with Urza's Saga.

    you know i just looked at the beholder again

    on further inspect how can such a nightmare to beat in D&D be a common
    (the forgot to remove the C from the rarity area)

    none the less it should be a stax card based on the lore of beholder's especially since discarding is involved


    The same way Cinderheart Giant is a common despite being one of the strongest giant cards in Kaldheim, make it expensive in mana cost for what it does. So I expect Beholder to be 7+ mana cost. Plus Xanathar is in the set so he will be the Legendary Beholder. There is also the posdublity of Hive Mothers snd snd Death Tyrants (types of Beholders) at higher raruties.

  • posted a message on Good Morning Magic- Info on the upcoming preconstructed commander decks (NO SPOILERS)
    Quote from signofzeta »
    "Why try to fight the fact that people want to play Commander". More like, "We give up, our game sucks. People rather play a game someone else made by changing a few of our rules".



    They don't really gave up since all other formats, since exists and they still making products for other formats (like the upcoming Modern Horizon 2) and still making tournaments for said formats. Casual players just love the commander formats more than random pile of 60 cards decks and if beginners and casual players are happy with that, why, you, that are a veteran player that has no competitive interest in these pre-con, be upset about it?
    If beginners are happy, then everybody is happy. It's a win-win. And I never heard no beginner ever said commander decks have a prohibitive price tag. Ou contraire, I just found people enthusiast to make their hands on the decks of this popular format everybody play.
    You are not happy that new players start Magic with a commander pre-con because of price or anything else? Cool, but please keep in mind that you're pretty much a minority and your perception doesn't reflect at all how reality currently works.


    So basically, WOTC don't know how to make 60 card, you know, the unmodified rules of the game, fun for casuals, meaning, they gave up.

    I also never knew that Modern Horizons 2 are preconstructed decks.

    Spending $50 precons and $10 booster packs is nothing to you it seems. I remember when I had little income, I could buy the $13 Intro Packs and enjoy the game that way. Now that's all gone.


    I think Challenger Decks fill the role your looking for.

    According to Amazon Foil Mythic Rare Borderless Planeswalkers are confirmed for AFR, 1% chance in Draft Booster Packs, 4% in Collector Booster. Some of us thought that the set might not have Planeswalkers, but it seems WotC is highlighting them in this set.

    My advice is to reject the dark path of censorship, even though I know such wise advice will be rejected. Even with the best of intentions, it always eventually ends badly.

  • posted a message on Secret lair: Full text lands literally
    Comparing the Text Lands to the AFR Basic lands that have both gorgeous art and flavourful text and what will undoubtedly be a cheap price, making the high priced rip off text lands look even more obscene.

    Halfling Citizen should kill the return of the Party Mechanic rumours at least.

    to confirm something

    Finally, we couldn't explore the multiplayer fun of Dungeons & Dragons without a special nod to multiplayer Magic with four new Commander decks alongside the release of Adventures in the Forgotten Realms. Created to line up alongside Strixhaven's Commander decks, these are powerful decks for current Commander players ready to form a party for an unforgettable journey:

    Aura of Courage
    Dungeons of Death
    Draconic Rage
    Planar Portal



    the bolded part these confirmed as commander 2021 decks part 2


    oh each deck prediction

    aura: that’s Basicly gonna be a commander deck version of knight tribal deck that happened in throne of eldraine. The key is that deck name is pretty much the exact name of a 10th level Paladin spell in D&D and paladins are Basicly knights

    Dungeon: based on the new mechanic but hopefully it’s related to curse's

    draconic: let’s put it this way it’s the 5-color commander 2017 deck but with a commander that doesn't have the eminence mechanic. And probably nerfed

    Portal: hope that’s a flicker or “cheat” themed deck
    (By cheat look at cards like Rashmi, Eternities Crafter and Show and Tell for 2 examples)



    The portal one will likely be an Angels, Demons, Devils deck aka planar creatures. Maybe Black White.

    Draconic Rage Dragons obviously, but maybe Kobolds and Dragonborn too. Maybe Red White.

    Dungeons of Death will likely explore this Dungeon card type and undead and other common dungeon dwelling monsters. Black Green maybe.

    Aura of Courage will have some Knights, but might be a general hero creature class type deck as well, after all the Paladins aura works on all allies, not just Paladins. The face card will be a Knight of course. Heck it could even be a God like Torm or Red Knight.

    I think it would be pretty cool if the characters that were invented for the 3rd ed books got cards, like Regdar and Mialee, they were always funny.

    Maybe the Eye and Hand of Vecna as some cool legendary artifacts that do something together.

    I think they should be careful about which characters are planeswalkers, Drizzt would make more sense as a creature.


    Agreed, maybe even as the face card of AFR Commander Deck, but the ending of the last trilogy hinted that "Planeswalking" might be possible. Still I doubt it, I think Mord, Fizbin, and Elminister are more likely, although Nazram World Walker is a strong possiblity as its part of his MO.

    The 3e PHB characters are all Greyhawk, so the only way one of them gets into a Forgotten Realms set is as Planeswalker.

    The Hand and Eye of Vecna are going to be in the D&D movie, which is set in FR despite Vecna not being an FR God (although that hasn't stopped him from visiting and effecting FR), The Hand and Eye of Vecna like to travel between worlds, so its made stops in FR before.

    I'm going on a limb but maybe a reprint of good ol' Fireball. I'd also like to see a card for Rope Trick. Maybe an until-end-of-turn exile perhaps? Or, maybe, a return target creature to its owner's hand, then at the end of turn that creature's controller puts it on the battlefield from their hand. I don't know if it would be templated like that but it's still a cool angle to go about creating a "Safe space."

    'buster


    I think maybe they will do Delayed Fireball instead, like maybe when you cast it, it goes into exile, but next time you or a Planeswalker is attacked, it goes into effect, damaging the attackers.

    I think the spell Gate will act like learn on steroids.

    Meteor shower, Summon Dragon Spirit, or True Polymorph will lilely be Red's Mythic Rare none creature card.

    Antimagic Field will be interesting to convert as will Mirror Image.

    Metamagic could be cool, but I'm not sure what card type it would be perhaps a new one.
