    So it's essentially a Core Set for Modern?

    Quote from Fyrwulf »
    From the MtG Wiki:

    Storyline

    Main article: Ravnica (2019 novel)

    The storyline and set will revolve around the fight between the Gatewatch and Nicol Bolas. The fight turns into an all-out planeswalker war. Dozens of powerful planeswalkers, from many disparate realities, unite against the elder dragon, who has claimed dominion over Ravnica and is perilously close to completing the spell that will grant him godhood. As they fight alongside the Gatewatch — led by Chandra Nalaar, Jace Beleren, and Gideon Jura — against Bolas and his relentless army of Eternals, nothing less than the fate of the multiverse is at stake.[10] Little do the Gatewatch suspect that Bolas has not only accounted for their interference, but he is practically relying on it.[11]


    I think that basically confirms that this is a Planeswalkers Matter set. I hope we don't get the lame, useless Planeswalker Deck walkers, but pushed walkers that really emphasize how much more powerful Planeswalkers are than regular mages. Naturally there'd need to be 'Walker hosers and plenty of them, but I don't see that as a problem.


    So Bolas's plan is to become a God?

    Xenagos: "You need all THAT to become a God? I did it by partying."

    Sorin's art is IMPRESSIVELY bland.

    Edit:

    Hey, sweet - Archmage status! And it only took me 14 years!

    So, with the repeated statements from Maro that the third set would be focusing on Ravnica but not the guild structure and now this name, can we offcially infer that there will be more than usual "Planeswalker matters" type cards?

    Honestly, I'm a little curious as to how viable a strategy built around them could be for draft or even sealed. If you can snag 4 in Draft, you are just ridiculous, I would think.

    Thrumming Stone, cast this, drop 18-20 of these into play, mill you out on the spot?

    Braun Strowman, is that you?


    A true Giant Shaman among men.

    Cool card, but that art is terrible.

    I know most things are hilarious with Doubling Season, but... this card is HILARIOUS with Doubling Season.

    Isn't that the flavor text from Rakdos Signet?

    It actually bums me out that this is an enchantment rather than a creature. Gruul seems flavored not just to be anti-noncreature spells, but specifically creatures that hate NC spells.

    Nah, we can do better than Okaun, Eye of Chaos and Mirror Gallery. Or at least make it a hell of a lot more entertaining.

    Step 1, cast Mirror Gallery. Step 2, cast March of the Machines. Step 3, cast Opalescence. Step 4, cast Dual Nature getting a total of 2 because it triggers itself since it is a creature. Step 5, cast Krark's Thumb, and stack the triggers so you get the tokens from Dual Nature before resolving the trigger from Mirror Match. You will get to flip 8 coins each time to try to win 1. Let's say you end up with 9 extra Krark's Thumbs, for 12 total because you're fairly lucky.

    Step 6, cast Doubling Season and stack the same way as for the thumb. When the 1st Dual Nature trigger resolves, you will get 2 Doubling Season tokens. When the 2nd Dual Nature trigger resolves, you will get 8 (2^3) more tokens for a total of 11 Doubling Seasons. Now you resolve the Mirror Match trigger. You have 12 Thumbs on the battlefield, which means you flip 4096 (2^12) coins and keep 1 for each flip. The odds of you losing any particular flip are 1/(2^4096) power. I almost forgot to mention that you might need to bring along a very powerful computer to simulate this, as 2^4096 can be rewritten as (2^512)^8, where 2^512 approximately equals the number 134 followed by 152 zeroes.

    Step 7, profit!!


    The fact that this strategy is coming from someone named "Pants_On_head" cannot be understated. I applaud you, sir.

    Is that our first explicit reference to Bolas in Ravnica?

    I like it, but I really want to start seeing some stuff that moves around or removes counters now.

    You do realize that if you spend Domri's mana to cast a riot creature with Rhythm of thr Savages on the board your creature gets to riot, while it riots as it's also rioting?

    Chanting riot three times as you cast a creature seems like a perfectly Gruul thing to do.


    What a riot.

    Kinda odd having a pseudo-ramp ability on a 4 mana walker, but 5 loyalty and 3 solid abilities is nice.

    Edit:

    Just realized that his +1 doesn't require that mana to be spent on something specific, which effectively makes him cost 3 mana on turn 4. That's not bad at all.
