Quote from Woody Elemental »Keeper was soon outclassed, though. Patrick Chapin, a little known pro at the time, showed up to GenCon. He played a deck called Miracle Gro, which pumped Quirion Dryad with cheap spells and was more efficient than Keeper. We played until 6 am the next morning and I think Patrick won every game. That was the end of Keeper for me.
Patrick narrowly overcame a Saproling Burst/Goblin Bombardment deck in the first round, and lost to Zoo in the middle of the tournament, going 5-1 – enough to make the cut to Top 8. Also in the Top 8 was Matt Smith, once more, and Brian Cox, another Mono Blue Control player whom I lost to at Origins. Jeff Hegedus, who defeated Patrick in the Swiss with an unpowered Zoo deck, wrote a long and remarkable report. The Top 8 appears to have had at least 2 Mono Blue Control decks, 1 Grow, 1 Zoo, 1 Goblin-Sligh, and 1 Sligh, with the rest unknown, but likely more of the same.
Quote from Raptorchan »Can we expect a new Mishra card with an artwork reflecting this image?
Now, if a spell or ability you play gives an opponent a choice, you must get confirmation from them that they aren’t doing the optional thing.
Quote from atomskprime »Apparently, according to the rules manager of MTG, Quicksilver doesn't work the way we want it to.
It provides a new set of abilities, but those abilities still have the once per turn clause.
In order to get multiple activations, we'd need to blue Mana to refresh each ability
Quote from MadMageQc »Your opponent draws their normal card for the turn, then the Library's trigger goes on the stack. When it resolves, they cannot choose to draw cards with the ability. So the rest of Library's effect following 'if you do' won't happen. Library just doesn't do anything.
Quote from Caranthir »I wonder whether we will see wither back. Gideon becomes indestructible AND all damage to him is prevented. Does not make sense, IMO, without something like wither. The -1/-1 counters are a theme definitely.
Quote from Worzel »I wouldn't be surprised if Exert is putting a -1/-1 counter on your own creature to do something cool with it.
Quote from LouCypher »Now I'm curious as to what Exert does. But Cycling being back...Astral slide players everywhere rejoince.
