    Alright, so nothing dramatic will change and CubeTutor will keep updating with each expansion (Within a few weeks after an expansion's release date), correct?

    I would totally cut Vigilance and the red ability from Memnarch.

    You would then have a very texty card that could sometimes pass the length-test and see print. But only sometimes and not in core sets. But I would start there.

    To clarify, the site isn't dying. It will continue to be able to do all the things it can do right now in perpetuity. Ad-free access to a bug-free functioning site, maintained servers, the champion features, and a fully updated cardpool are all things we'll continue to have. But some project expansions, like mobile and other large feature requests, can't be tackled under the current framework.

    I agree that Ben should outline a plan for what needs to happen to continue to expand features, but I just wanted to clarify that the site as it currently functions isn't going anywhere.


    So..

    For a person who wants to keep paying the 5$ each month and will continue to need the website...what will change?

    I have only ever been 100 % happy with CubeTutor!

    Plus they would make for some pretty wacky games of pack wars.


    This!

    It is always sweet and interesting when something old gets played in a new way.

    I'll be the first Scrooge.

    Blah Humbug, how about some real spoilers from upcoming product Wizards.


    So in your opinion Wizards should stop making 1 Christmas card every Christmas?

    Or should they just stop spoiling the card so you don’t have to click on a spoiler that isn’t any future Standard-legal card?


    Where did I say any of that?

    I said, I'd be the first Scrooge. Ever read Dickens? The spoiler is fine, I'd like MORE. A hint or a spoiler of upcoming PRODUCT. That doesn't mean a card spoiler. Maybe a new Signature Spellbook, or a new product, or an announcement of a new Masters set, just about anything than a cutesie card that we know comes out every year.

    Jeesh people get so touchy if anyone dares question the all-knowing all benevolent WotC. Its my personal critique, nothing more.

    We need to drop it and move on, I've said my piece. Pig on Bicycle


    It's not all-knowing all benevolent WotC. It is just pure ignorance on your part.

    They have done this for fifteen years. Why should they change traditions? Give me one good reason.

    You stated you wanted something other than this spoiler. Literally. I quote you: "how about some real spoilers" which directly means you want something other than what you got.

    So my question to you is this: Should they stop making Christmas cards? Should they stop spoiling the Christmas cards so sensitive people don't get offended? Should they always include "Here is what we have for a future product" while they spoil the Christmas cards so sensitive people get both a Christmas card spoiled AND a future product spoiled in the same article for no reason?

    I wonder if the near-identical shots were intentional?

    My modern playgroup has been testing this. After some debates on land count and proxying... we have conluded that 2 is the right amount to test. 3 cmc is the top of the curve. In a deck where almost every spell burns the opponent, the 4 damage from this could be a finisher... or we are allowed to draw 3 cards that will get more burn to finish the job.

    Being able to do a potential of 8 damage I the head with one card is devastating, or you can draw up to 6 cards instantly with one card also... In red.


    Oh, that's actually 2 cards for potentially 8 damage to the head.. because you have to discard a card for the jump start. Smile


    The damage comes from one card, the same card so it's actually one card actually not two, but nice try.


    But in reality it is two cards and not one since you need to spend two cards to get the effect.

    But nice try.

    Hmm, noticed that singles pre-order price of this card is slowly climbing. Started off as 1.49 on SCG a few days ago, yesterday it's 2.00, today it's 2.49.


    Yeah, this is gonna hit $5 or more at release, it's instant card draw for red, the color that usually doesn't even get card draw.


    Which is why I intend to pre-order while it's still in the 2 dollar something range. Smile

    Anyway, we will be testing this in our RW Modern Burn.. clearly not a 4 of, but maybe 2 to start. An opponent would only probably give the draw 3 if they would die from 4 damage, so the home of this card should be a burn deck.. where the rest of deck also pressures the opponent. In theory, they give the draw, I draw more Burn which will end the game - however, that's only in theory... needs some real tests to know the real value of this card.


    Better sell it quick before it goes under the 1 USD where these cards normally are. As soon as supply starts to climb the price will go down.

    I may be wrong but I don't see "until end of turn" here.


    I think you are wrong because I see one.

    Is this thing going to be getting day 1 errata or something?"


    Have you ever heard or seen a Magic card getting an errata in order to change the power level of a card?


    Erratas are for mistakes like Walking Atlas where they forgot to add artifact to the supertype:
    https://scryfall.com/card/wwk/131/walking-atlas

    Or for Invert//Invent where they forgot to add "Until end of turn." to the card:

    Multiple is 2 or more.

    Interested in hearing how you know where the set's design wants to be. I guess Maro neglected to mention netn10 when introducing the design team.
    We can do basic math? 10 Cluestones (1 out of every 7 commons) in a 156 card set will be more likely to double/triple/quadruple pack than 5 Lockets in 259 (254 unique) cards in Guilds.

    Now, we still don't know if Gates are on the Land slot or not, if they aren't then there is a concern that you have 15 common color fixers in the set proper. But the set is still a hundred extra cards deep so you still shouldn't be getting quadruple color fix in packs on the regular. And if Gates are on the land slot (there are zero basic lands in the count proper for Guilds) then it is just the chances of two lockets in a pack. Which is non-zero, yes, but shouldn't be a regular occurrence.

    (We don't know what the common/uncommon/rare breakdown is on Guilds yet, so I did not include that info like I did on DGM.)


    You completely forgot the only sentence that mattered:

    “I'll rank them lower then signet and higher then cluestone, and that's exactly where this set's design wants to be.”

    No they meant poisonous 10 because the creature gives 10 poison counters when it connects. Its a joke thematic to the walker that would be nice to see


    But it isn’t thematic.

    She doesn’t poison anyone to death. Gorgons petrifize their targets by looking at them and thus turning them to stone. It would be a flavor fail if she gave out poison.
