    Liliana: You seek to become a god, Bolas. But now you've given me control over four! Hmm...four Gods, four Demons, four friends...four really is the number of death, isn't it?


    Where does this come from? This reminds me of Japanese, where the number four is pronounced the same way as the word for death 'shi'.


    Four and Death are homophones in a lot of East Asian languages, so yeah, the superstition is pretty common.

    Bant Turbofog as an excuse to reprint Nexus of Fate?

    They probably won't pull the trigger on him for a while. The lead time on a novella (a short novel, in other words, which is conventionally 20,000-40,000 words) is conceivably about a few months, far shorter than the lead time on a set. In addition, Sanderson invented the character from whole cloth, so there wasn't a way to simultaneously write out a set story treatment with him and have Sanderson write the novella. I would not be shocked if he didn't show up on a card for 4-5 years.


    They actually mention in the interview that Sanderson coordinated with Wizards Creative to fill a hole in their new character pipeline. Davriel is definitely getting a card in the next few years.

    Isn't the mana cost order for Sultai supposed to be BGU? Even before Khans, Vorosh, the Hunter was GUB. BUG seems objectively wrong, unless they're trying to make a pun on it being a "bug" in the system or what-have-you.


    yes that's the joke. He's BUGged.

    "Make a 2/2 that has 'sac: draw a card each of your end steps" is pretty good for a 5 mana enchantment.

    The art of that baby is creepy as hell and i just cant stand that they made it a "baby".


    I know a couple eight year olds that would be very offended you think they're babies.

    Weird, I thought for sure this card would be white, given that the rest of the cycle was red, blue, and Golgari.

    Can anyone give me a good reason to play this over Karador or Muldrotha that isn't "I like Jund more than Abzan or Sultai" or "hydras are cool"?

    In before Tiro wets himself.


    In before Tiro actually hates this card because it's not exactly what he imagined Arixmethes being.

    I like how half the posters in this thread are saying "this cards sucks and is boring it doesn't do anything interesting" while the other half is actively brewing.

    This card turns Magical Christmas Land into a nightmare hellscape.

    I think it's a kid not a midget lol. But yeah it's super creepy. It has that southern horror bayou kinda creepy level. Anyone ever see True Detective? For some reason it gives me those vibes. I'm excited to see what the card does.


    The genre you're looking for is Southern Gothic, and it rules.

    How are you people still going at this?


    This should be trademarked as the Rumor Mill's official tagline.

    Except, people who want random, nobody legends can get them anywhere. People who want past lore legends as cards can look only to Commander.


    Me personally, I'd like to see them do more of what they did in Planechase and show us snapshots of the larger Multiverse from planes that maybe aren't deep enough to carry a whole set. Part of what makes The Mimeoplasm so cool is that it's a hook for Muraganda, a plane we're honestly probably never going to fully see. I would much rather get some rando from Kaldheim or Equilor and learn something new about those places, rather than get another dork from Zendikar who showed up in a flavor text once (sorry Bruse).

    Of course, I'm also aware that Magic isn't made for an audience of me and only me alone, so I don't gretch every time a card gets spoiled that doesn't cater to my specific tastes.
