Interesting choice of names. Kurbis is basically "pumpkin" in German (just written "kürbis").
The Sigardian cards look nice, I wondee why there was almost no mention of Sigardian church in the main set, so now we know.

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.

With her brother.
Sep 3, 2021Caranthir posted a message on [MID} Gisa, Glorious Resurrector (Wizards spoiler)...aaand here goes the "character from a short story" hype.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
She was indeed introduced in s short story, and she got a card in Commander, and later a card in Eldritch Moon, but with her brother Geralf, not individual.
Gisa, Glorious Resurrector
Legendary Creature - Human Wizard
If a creature an opponent controls would die, exile it instead.
At the beginning of your upkeep, put all creature cards exiled with Gisa, Glorious Resurrector onto the battlefield under your control. They gain decayed. (A creature with decayed can't block. When it attacks, sacrifice it at the end of combat.)

Hello there, my compatriot

By context from the other previews, this is the name they gave to the events of Nahiri/Eldrazi crisis. I guess that this comes from the "fate worse than death" meaning of the word.
Sep 2, 2021Caranthir posted a message on Innistrad 3 story and lore- Midnight Hunt and Crimson VowWell,Posted in: Magic Storyline
- We have a world that has recently seen Eldrazi, a world where something bad is happening
- There is a mythical machine that can help it
- There is a key for the engine missing
. Both local and offworld planeswalkers converge here to show interest in it.
Wait a minute, where have I seen this before?
- Zendikar - Innistrad
- Lithoform Engine - Celestus
- Lithoform Core - Moonsilver key
- Nahiri, Jace - Arlinn, Teferi
The only difference is that this time, the walkers seem to collaborate. Otherwise the core story is quite similar.Quote from Mullerornis »The initials in one of the artpieces are an M and a V, so it's a Markov (Sorin or Edgar) and Olivia:
Edgar's dead, perished during the Markov manor destruction. At least that's the consensus.

Nope, that chair belonged to the Falkenrath...
I really see the name for the first time.
Aug 31, 2021This is phyrexianized Mishra. Look how he looked here - metallized arms, cables instead of guts...Posted in: Magic Storyline
The whole set is reimagined in modern visuals, this is a great example of that.
Comparing it with the timeshifted version, that depicts him as a young man, is not reasonable.
Aug 6, 2021Posted in: The Rumor MillQuote from Shadow345 »Werewolf set.
No werewolf previews.
No werewolf commander deck. Instead it's zombies and humans.
They explicitly said at the very beginning that we are not seeing any werewolves in this stream. Because they did again something cool with them and cannot show it yet.
Aug 5, 2021Wrenn is present and indeed has a treefolk #7 now. Arlinn Kord is in the set (obviously). The identity of the Kamigawa-looking lady was not shown, and neither had any werewolves.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
There are new fullart "Eternal Night" lands. Available in foil, in all kinds of boosters.
Crimson Vow features Sorin and Olivia Voldaren.
Aug 5, 2021Information:Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Innistrad is more or less back to "normal". Eldrazi are just a bad memory, but Avacyn's gone, nights are getting longer an the people are reverting to old ways to survive (basically paganism, nature rituals, etc...). The werewolves are getting "loony".
First multicolor flashback cards (an flashback's back)
Instant unconditional removal for 1B and 2 life.
After Triskaidekaphobia, we have a Triskaidekaphile.
Consider is Opt with surveil instead of scry.
Champion of the Parish has a mega-pun black twin.

- Merfolk that conjures Tropical Island by ETB exiling a nonmerfolk or a land from your hand, and +1/+0 EOT when a Merfolk or a Island ETBs under your control.
- and Mentor of Evos Isle, who gives ETB perpetually flying to a creature card in your hand (If I get it right)

Jun 17, 2019For me, as a veteran, it is, and always was, about the community, not the name. I'll go where the people I like to talk to, and the staff that did such amazing work, are going.Posted in: Articles
If the staff moves to Nexus, I'll follow, like I went from News to Sally 14 years ago.
Mar 15, 2018Caranthir posted a message on Dominaria Spoiler Digest - Who's Who and What's What from the Release NotesPosted in: ArticlesQuote from Formless_One »No, the Baron Sengir and Grandmother Sengir come from Ulgothra. However, Grandmother Sengir is actually a planeswalker named Ravi who knew the Baron when he was young and as I understand it before he was a vampire. Then she went insane after pulling an Urza and blowing up most of Ulgothra. But the plane has a planar portal that most likely connects to Dominaria, and who knows? Maybe the Baron and his "Grandmother" did some traveling around the Multiverse at some point.
The Baron is NOT from Ulgrotha. He is from an unknown plane, he was brought to Ulgrotha by an unknown walker and stranded there. He might be originally from Dominaria, as we seen Sengir vampires there...but there is not enough info either to confirm or dismiss it.
Granny is a former planeswalker and one-time friend of the Baron who had a hand in him becoming vampire. See here: https://mtg.gamepedia.com/Ravi

odah's paragraph is quite wild.
"(Jodah) was also present during the Phyrexian Invasion and helped restore Urza's sanity during that time" - this is wholly incorrect, where you got it?
- one of the primary contributous to Worldspell - not quite, he had to provide his mirror and was forced to utilize (and in the process, consume) the safe havens to distribute the excess energy of the spell to prevent another Sylex Blast.
It is debatable, whether Evra, Halcyon Witness is what we think. After all, we have seen Halcyon Glaze. But using this very particular name on Dominaria and NOT tying it to THE Halcyon would be immensely stupid.
Kolo Meha was above all a Bogardan fire mage, but with ties to Madara, of course.
Gix was not Glacian's kíller. He attacked and wounded him, but Yawgmoth "killed" him by his treattment.
Mar 12, 2018Caranthir posted a message on Dominaria Spoiler Digest - Who's Who and What's What from the Release NotesSome minor corrections:Posted in: Articles
- Primevals' rebirth was one of the climaxes of Planeshift,not Invasion
- Karn's Temporal Sundering is probably the time machine explosion also depicted on Sunder, not the Tolarian rift closure.
- Sagas get counters on the beginning of the precombat main phase
- Mirari was just one of Karn's probes, and a faulty one (it shouldn't be leaking power)
Jan 13, 2008Great pics, James Losing Miles had to hurt, indeed. I like your choice of team....playing with Miles and Phobeya together is one of my preferred combinations. Just add Harass and you got my fav "supervillain" team. But Sil is powerful with any high-damage super character.Posted in: Hydrokinesis's Blog
