    Ugin's Conjurant is really reminiscent of the old spirit cards from judgement... And a pretty persistent creature too.


    I was thinking the same thing, except you still remove that many counters. Phantoms only removed one counter, and always prevented the damage, so an Elephant Guide could make them nearly invincible in combat. This will still die even with an enchantment, as it doesn't prevent damage. What I do see it as though, is a way to not die flat out to Deathtouch.


    Read the card!!!! It dies prevent damage. Otherwise it would, most of the time, die as soon as the counters where remove since it would have less toughness than the damage marked on it.

    The phantoms from Judgment need colored mana where as this can be played in anything. Thats the trade off.


    It doesn't "prevent" any real damage however. It converts damage to counters. If you cast it for 6, you get a 6/6. If it blocks, let's say, an opposing 4/4, it becomes a 2/2.

    It's like a creature which cannot heal itself at the end of turn, which is really pretty bad.

    The only advantage is, like someone said, that it is resistant to deathtouch, and it can heal back/grow bigger with proliferate, or be used with stuff like Biogenic Upgrade.

    It might have potential as a counters combo build-around of sorts, but not as a cool damage-prevention ability.

    This can tap lands on the opponent's upkeep. Denying a color + drawing cards can be a fine tempo swing.

    I don't get how things such as this or Bolas' Citadel are not mythic. What does it take?

    Well, we just had Thirsting Shade as a common 1/1 black lifelink for one, which could pump instead of haste, and it was considered bad. Is haste that much better than (rather inefficient) pump?

    (I know it's better, just is the difference such that one card is considered unplayable and the other super exciting?)

    The bigger versions are so clearly copy/pasted/scaled in a smaller version in each other's cards... Come on.

    Really feels off, both perspective and composition.


    Well, that comment kinda looks ridiculous when you look closely at the images and realize they aren't copy-pasted. Too many details are different.


    Apologies for not being clear, I actually did zoom in and look closely at the images, and yes there are minute little differences, but they are in the overlayed effects, like if it was just a different render of the procedurally generated flame, but still the same underlying model/art exactly, for both. It does feel off to me.

    This is cool, but being a bow I would have expected it to be an equipment... Just have it give reach, with some overcosted equip cost as to not add to the power level of the card. Just for flavor.

    Amazing, just what the surveil deck needed to avoid decking yourself in limited, which was starting to be a real danger.

    Time to dig those good old ultimatums, too. And EOT instant Time Stretch of course.

    For me a glaive is a Roman short sword. It's the first time ever that I hear that it could also mean a polearm...

    This can be fake, but it could be true in theory. I don't think that masterpieces would really hurt the original value, if only for collectable/frame reasons. An unlimited Serra is 40-50$ that has nothing to do with gameplay.

    As for Ravnica 3, masterpiece original dual lands would be very fitting, and this is the #1 thing people are requesting. It's not like they will start printing moxes right away, or ever.

    4-mana O-ring I understand, but it could have been common at that rate.
    I don't think you play limited.


    I actually only play limited... and what I meant is that there is often overcosted removal in white at common for limited purposes, for example pacifism effects & variants at 3-5CC. I think an unconditional removal at 4mana comes late enough to not break anything, and balances out big bombs. Plus if it's common, you can o-ring their o-ring too. Of course, in a set with big dragons, I understand they might want to make removal less common, but I'm not sure how much this will be relevant in limited, there's plenty of ultra-efficient low-cost creatures now, it might end up being like Ixalan where ultra-fast pirate decks (hello cutlass) killed dino players before they could cast anything.
