Quote from Bhogal83 »It's perfectly fine for Medieval-Europe-inspired planes to be populated with dark-skinned people
Quote from Manite »Like I said earlier this year, the Arthurian and Fairy Tale themes feel weird smashed together in one set; it's like two different worlds being visited at once. The princess-centric stories like Cinderella and Snow White make enough sense in an Arthurian setting, but more surreal stuff like the Gingerbread Man and Red Riding Hood feel like they wanted their own world. The net sum is that Eldraine feels like Shrek world but with less humor (and Ogre farts).
Quote from Marl Karx »This is why I am HIGHLY dubious of "psychographics" (which is not a real concept outside of the head of Magic designers wrapped up in inane "lifestyle" research IMO). By linking color to "philosophy" above all else you easily miss the forest for trees -- in this case somewhat literally. When you are THAT associated with a forest (AND archery), you should be green.
Its not even that much of a stretch on the philosophy front either because you can depict him and his men as Diggers (or Levellers I guess if they're too squeamish for that)
Quote from Mockingbird »One thing to note about the Eldrazi is that they’ve been marketing failures in each iteration they’ve existed. They essentially ruined Zendikar 1 drafting (which is a pretty big deal because drafting moves a lot more packs than just straight selling alone);
Quote from Melkor »I was just coming here to post about that. After ROE, I was really excited for more Eldrazi. after BFZ and Shadows blocks, i never want to see them again, they completely forgot what Eldrazi were. ZEN and WWK were fantastic sets, let's hope Wizards gets at least a little bit of that. if they botch this as bad as BFZ block, i hope they just destroy the plane.
Quote from MercurialMemory »Is there any chance these cards referencing adventure are actually DFCs? As in, activating Flaxen Intruder‘s adventure creates 3 bear tokens and flips to an enchantment or artifact named Welcome Home? Or would the card read, '...then transform X' if that were the case?
Quote from Carthage »I do welcome the ability to answer other permanent types in the colors that can't, that's an outdated color pie ideal that makes the game worse.
I just wish they would add it for red, the color they seem to hate the most.
haphazard bombardment remains one of the worst designs they've ever printed, they went out of their way to NOT give red a flavorful way to destroy enchantments.
Quote from Xcric »**** this thing and its lazy design
