    Based on yesterday's Planeswalker's Guide and its illustrations of Dismal Backwater and Thornwood Falls, there probably will be all ten "gainlands".

    264. Bloodfell Caves
    265. Blossoming Sands
    (266. Boseiju)
    267. Dismal Backwater
    (268. Eiganjo)
    269. Jungle Hollow
    273. Rugged Highlands
    274. Scoured Barrens
    (275. Secluded Courtyard)
    (276. Sokenzan)
    277. Swiftwater Cliffs
    (278. Takenuma)
    279-280. Thornwood Falls
    280-281. Tranquil Cove
    281-282. Wind-Scarred Crag

    Among the last four there would probably be Terramorphic Expanse or Unknown Shores...

    How did you guys get these card names anyway I’d didn't see anything look at the pictures?


    Inspect page elements Smile

    According to the pictures' names, we can expect these:

    Tezzeret, Betrayer of Flesh

    Nashi, Moon Sage's Scion

    Jin-Gitaxias, Progress Tyrant

    Reality Heist

    and finally: The Wandering Emperor

    which means we probably won't know her name. I bet she still will be "Legendary Planeswalker"

    Quote from Reaper9889 »
    I guessed that quite wrong. I had thought it would be +0/+2 by default (and then +2/+0 if you groom also) and then life link instead of first strike.


    I guess first strike, death touch and +4/+4 is a solid combination, but a bit lame that they encourages you to put these two on the same creature


    Yep. Same feelings. Should have been "attached to another creature you control."

    They did it right on Honeymoon Hearse though.

    And now we know who the "character returning, but as a vampire now" is...


    Interesting, according to original Innistrad lore about vampire "condition of blood", they must have bitten Odric first with a drop of their own blood, and after a month Odric would have to again drink blood of his "sire" vampire.

    But maybe Odric is strong enough and he transcended the condition (as Sorin would say Smile )

  • posted a message on [VOW] Sigarda's Imprisonment— Pokde preview
    IIRC, Sigarda said she wanted to "speak with Sorin about his creation". Then they both fought, but Arlinn and Adeline didn't see them fight, only heard the battle.

    So there is always a possibility that Sorin only "defeated" her and brought her to Voldaren Castle as a wedding gift, just to free her at the right time.

  • posted a message on Daily Deals thread
    Well, I believe we can at least keep some useful threads.

    For newcomers, there are daily deals in Arena, which are usually card styles, but sometimes there is offered booster pack at lower price (usually for 900 or 800 gold instead of 1000) or direct offer of gold or gems.

    The daily deals are refreshed every day, at 3:00 PM GMT.

    Today it's gem deal: 400 gems at the price of 300 gems or 1500 gold

    Okay,

    The retcons (intentional or unintenrional) are REALLY getting on my nerves.

    - there is a crapload of images with a moon in it. Guess on how many of them the Gatewatch glyph that was seared there when Emrakul sealed herself in the moon is visible?


    I will spare you the time. NONE. No reminder of that, nothing has happened, move along.

    - Thraben Exorcism depicts Kaya...with her daggers. Both of them were lost during the Kaldheim story and replaced by axes.


    Theoretically, Innistrad storyline may happen before Kaldheim. But the art omission is more possible...

    There are strange objects near the moon in some of the art - just light spots, but they look like hedron network established around the silver moon (most prominent on Tovolar card). Who knows what this means...

  • posted a message on Arena Jumpstart - New Kiora and more blue cards (Eurogamer preview)
    I wonder, when I absolutely proxy this and pay nothing to WOTC, should we play the +1 ability in my playgroup as "Pay U. Create a 0/4 blue Kraken creature token" or is that too broken?


    I think you can safely play it as "Put a creature card named Kraken Hatchling from outside the game into your hand."

    By the way, all this "digital only" stuff annoy me a lot. I think that if Wizards wanted just a bit, every card could be easily tweaked to be paper suitable. Even Davriel, Soul Broker (who I was expecting to be in this year's Innistrad sets).

    His first ability is OK, the third could be tweaked as three -1/-1 counters, and for the second we could have a token cards for Davriels offers and conditions and player would just choose from them.
    Yes, there will be more emblems and extra offer/conditions cards for Davriel, but they could have just made the new Innistrad set as "Davriel's", like they did with Chandra's Core set.

    Considering the Magic timeline, War of the Spark was at 4606 AR (Argivian Reckoning - 0 AR being the birth of Urza and Mishra).

    Chandra was born 4583 (ascended 4594), Jace was born probably 4580 AR (ascended 4595 or slightly before - Alhammaret has erased his memories of it). It is known that Nissa was born before Mending (4546 AR), and ascended 4564 when being over 60 years old.

    Sorin ascended ca 2000 AR (being human and Edgar's grandson, he probably was 20-30 years old at that time).

    Teferi was born 3293 AR, Liliana ca 4400 AR.

    I don't know exact age of Gideon or Ral, but it always was my impression that Gideon is over 30 (35 at most), and Ral is at late 20's, maybe 30 at most.

  • posted a message on [KHM] Ban Coming? (Hint: Tibalt's Trickery is Lame)
    Quote from SilverWolf_27 »

    Seriously, how didn't they catch it before release?


    Well...

    Designer 1: "Shouldn't we limit it to countering only opponents' spells?"

    Designer 2: "Why? There is random mill, so they couldn't stack their library. And besides, who would even want to counter their own spells?"

    EDIT:
    Just played a game against it, but this time, opponent has Valki/Tibalt in deck, and they use Tibalt's Trickery for Tibalt.
    Needless to say, from turn 2 they keep exiling mine and their cards, and because they have mainly lands, can very soon casting my own stuff.
    In the end they ultimated Tibalt, and among exiled cards they cast another Tormod's Crypt/Trickery to find another Valki/Tibalt.

    At least this was new and interesting.

  • posted a message on KHM- Kaldheim story and flavor
    I know I am nitpicking, but in Planeswalker's Guide was that Cosima was originally a Cosmos Monster. She don't look like one, unless the Elixir has transformed her...
