  • posted a message on {WAR} Anyone think some of the Planeswalkers that have been printed for Commander will show up to the party?
    We know all 36 planeswalkers that are getting cards, because we have seen their arts. Of those, there are either three or four that have never received a planeswalker card before - Azorius Shepherd Lady, Davriel Kane, Teyo Verada, and Raiden-Hat Lady. Raiden-Hat Lady may actually be Mu Yanling though and therefore would not be "new" (she shares white hair, an Asian aesthetic, and a ribbon-y energy projection). Davriel and Teyo are known from recent stories, leaving the Shepherd Lady as the only unknown.

    Because of so many knowns, we know that Nahiri, Ob Nixilis, and Teferi, all of whom first got Planeswalker cards in Commander, will have cards. We also know Kaya, who first appeared in Conspiracy 2, will. But we know that Freyalise, Daretti, the four C18 Planeswalkers, the Kenrith twins, and Dack Fayden will not appear.

    Now, this does not preclude these characters from showing up in the story (apart from known dead people like Freyalise and Windgrace), as MaRo has said that there will be walkers who are story-relevant who do not get cards.

    My top guesses:
    Viking World
    Wild West World
    Some new Phyrexian Plane, either the Phyrexian Homeworld or Elspeth's Home Plane
    Prison World

    I'd like to replace some of the generic goodstull 'walkers with ones that support specific strategies. I'd like a Loam-centric 'walker in green and maybe a mutual sacrifice 'walker in black.

    Hmm... such as:

    Nissa, the Bounty Renewed 1GG
    Legendary Planeswalker - Nissa
    +1: Put the top three cards of your library into your graveyard. If at least one of these cards is a land card, create a 0/1 green Plant creature token.
    -1: Return target land card from your graveyard to the battlefield
    -7: You get an emblem with "You may play land cards from your graveyard. You may play three additional lands each turn."

    Liliana, Bolas-Bound 2BB
    Legendary Planeswalker - Liliana
    +1: Create a 2/2 tapped black zombie creature token.
    -2: Each player sacrifices a permanent
    -5: You get an emblem with "At the beginning of your upkeep, put a soot counter on this emblem, and then each opponent sacrifices a number of permanents equal to the number of soot counters on this emblem"

    Looks like 4 is the only lock for being completely new, and possibly 12.

    Trying to get some clarity on this.

    If I Cast a The Mimeoplasm (Commander) and exile Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon (copy) + Terastodon (counters). Give it haste and attack an opponent with no blockers, what of the following conditions are met when it comes to damage?

    • Defending player is eliminated by damage?
    • Defending player is eliminated by means other than damage (Poison)?
    • Defending player is eliminated by Commander Damage?
    • All the above?

    If the player had not taken any prior damage, they are eliminated solely via having 10 poison counters.
    If the player had previously taken at least 8 damage from the Mimeoplasm, they would be eliminated simultaneously by having 10 or more Poison counters and by having 21 or more Commander damage.
    Under no circumstances would they be eliminated by loss of life putting their life total below 0 (aka "normal damage").
    They will always have lost the game ultimately due to "taking damage from your Commander".

    Whether or not this would fulfill your League's rules would depend on exactly what those rules were, since there's no universal guideline for League rules. If it says specifically kill them via "Commander Damage", you will not get the points/achievement/whatever (unless 8+ damage had been dealt by your commander previously). If it says that your Commander has to kill them via damage, then it will qualify, as damage is still dealt with Infect, just not loss of life.

    That technically already put cabal thearpy in. It's just on a stick but can be recurrent if it sticks for several turns

    I love Cabal Therapist, it's a great and dynamic card, but it's not Cabal Therapy.

    Therapy discards on turn one. Therapist doesn't discard until at least turn two, and if you want to have it discard more than once, you almost certainly aren't doing that until turn three.

    Therapy can be played from your graveyard without ever hitting your hand or needing to spend mana - this makes it incredible in a Dredge plan.

    Therapy can discard twice in one turn, which is pivotal if you see something you need to nab with the first cast that your opponent will be able to play if the turn gets back to them.

    Therapy is a sorcery, and so plays better with Delver, Young Pyromancer, Arclight Pheonix, and all the similar cards. Imagine milling a bunch of cards with Cathartic Reunion and dredgers, then flashing back a pair of Therapies from the grave off your Narcomoebas and returning 2-3 Phoenixes on attack.

    Prediction, they will not do anything for the 'duals are too expensive' issue. They might in some other product that doesn't go into Modern, but they won't make a legitimate replacement for original duals Modern legal. We may get niche lands that are good enough to replace what we already have in certain decks, but something equal to the duals would make mana fixing an afterthought, and I just don't see them doing that for this format.

    You are almost certainly right. It's just wishful thinking on my part.

    If they were so inclined, they could take this opportunity to turn Modern into a new Legacy fully free of the Reserved List. Just print functionally-similar but not strictly-identical versions of the top RL cards (duals, LED, Moat, Gaea's Cradle, etc) plus Legacy's top staples that aren't currently Modern-legal. But the odds of that are almost as long as them just doing something about the RL and salvaging actual legacy.

    Reprints: I'm hoping for the Onslaught Cycling lands (Tranquil Thicket et al), Astral Slide, and Lightning Rift. RW Slide was one of my first "real" decks and I've long hoped it could come back into vogue.
    Cabal Therapy wouldn't automatically replace Thoughtseize/IoK, but it would provide a powerful effect that rewards good play, making it a possibility. Not sure they'd print this alongside the Therapist though. Might also be too strong for Dredge.
    Portent and Scroll Rack would provide slightly weaker replacements for cards that are unlikely to leave the banlist (Ponder and Top).

    New Cards: Hoping to see some old characters who have long been awaiting cards as well as some recent popular requests - Urza, Yawgmoth, Hal and Alena, the WB Innistrad Angel, etc.
    A completion of a recent dual land cycle that was only printed in allied colors would be great. I'd expect the Amonkhet Cycle Duals if they're going to push a cycling theme. If they don't push cycling, the BFZ lands. SOI lands or Battlebond lands would be other options but less exciting.
    Alternately, they could print some "Snow Duals" with a drawback that would make them legacy playable in place of the OG Duals, in an attempt to help rectify the reserved list problem (something like - ETB Tapped if you control more than one non-snow land). I'm not sure they'd want to push Modern to this power level.

    A blue tempo 1-drop like this:

    Spellspurn Drake
    Creature - Drake
    U, sacrifice Spellspurn Drake: Counter target spell. Activate this ability only if Spellspurn Drake is tapped.

    Unf, I don't think there's any way that would print that. Countering any spell for U once this thing starts swinging is brutal.

    MaRo has repeatedly stated that more information will be available when it is closer to the actual release. It's still coming, but we don't have a timeline on it.

    Quote from Jiyor »

    This is WotC, even if they did a 180 and said ‘Sure you can use the new cards released in the supplemental sets from Commader forward.’ a year later they’ed renege and say ‘Well we didn’t test them for Modern and you all complained highly about 6 cards, so instead of banning anything we’re going back to them not being allowed.’

    I don't think it's going to be "all" supplemental sets, but it's definitely going to be this one.
