    Snow Enchantment - Aura
    Enchant land
    Enchanted land becomes a Snow Land.


    I was wondering when an effect like this was going to happen. 2 snow permanents...but is the additional mana also snow mana, or just the one you get for tapping the land?


    I'm assuming the additional mana is also S, because it's generated by a snow source (this enchantment).

    "We wanted to create a nonbinary character whose entire story didn't revolve around their gender identity
    *proceeds to share in detail how Niko's backstory is representative of and inspired by nonbinary gender identity*"

    I don't think it's a bad thing, and it doesn't bug me, but I just found it kinda funny.

    you could go 99 in dragon or artifact decks

    oh they made a mistake with getting any artifact with 5 treasures

    T1: mountain and sol ring
    T2: mountain this and dockside extortionist with atleast 5 artifacts or/and enchantments ( i know very very unlikely to happen)

    then what to cheat out turn 2 thats a artifact....





    Ah yes, a magical christmas land pipe dream scenario means that they made a mistake with the design of this card.

    The card seems quite good.

    This is so horribly cringey and awful. "Hey guys, let's use symbols to denote censored swear words! We're so rugged and cool and METAL!"

    It looks like the Demonic Knowledge flavor text is a quote from Nevinyrral, _____ of Urborg. (I can only read katakana, so I don’t know what the last word is.) Maybe we’re finally getting a Nevinyrral card?



    i can tell you that when they do a big name like that it’s usually a legendary card being used as the person talking You can see this with a few flavor texts on cards

    So yes it’s probably happening


    I am already aware of this, thanks

    All original partners do indeed appear to be foil etched.

    Well here's to hoping they look nice...


    This was already well known, though? You’ve even acknowledged it in other threads?

    You can also steal your opponent's Expropriate if you're still alive after that turn cycle.


    No you can’t, because Expropriate exiles itself upon resolution.

    Yeah, they're putting etched foils in regular boosters. Problem is, there are over 100 etched foils, including the 32 bonus cards. Collector Boosters will each have an etched foil. Draft Boosters MIGHT have them. Odds are greatly against you pulling any in draft boosters, unless you buy a lot of them, and even greater odds of getting one of the 32.

    This is not at all how they should be doing reprints.


    Well then it sure is a good thing that people can simply buy the cards that they want off of some kind of secondary market instead of foolishly cracking hundreds of packs in the narrow hopes of opening those cards themselves, right? :) :)

    My point is, you might not necessarily open the ones you want, but other people definitely will. And many of those will be put up for sale or trade, which will make them plentiful and readily available. As I stated before, people are going to open this set like crazy. It's going to be a unique drafting experience, which will incentivize a lot of Limited and EDH players to draft it more than normal, even with paper Magic seeing less play due to COVID. On top of that, lots of people love to open collector boosters and resell the contents that they don't want, which will add even more supply to the market.

    Well sis I didn't know. I don't understand why reprinting these cards needs to be this difficult. They add all these restrictions and then fail at delivering anything meaningful. "we can't reprint these outside of a commander product, and not just any commander product, but one re-introducing partner! Except this commander product, because only the mono color cards have partner! So good luck ever getting these!!!!"


    My guy, these packs are going to get opened like crazy. You really think that these C16 partner reprints are going to be that prohibitively expensive?
    You've devoted quite a few posts in this thread to complaining about the availability and distribution of these cards.
    Although I suppose devotion is in keeping with your Theros-centric persona.

    They even put etched foils into regular draft boosters, so I honestly don't know why you're complaining this much

    What I find laughable is that they said they recognized how warping Uro was, but they wanted to wait for rotation to let the metagame change and adapt to him.
    "Hey let's introduce this set full of landfall and other land-based interactions, I wonder how they'll adapt to Uro?"
    "Gee, all of these decks are actually incorporating Uro, because it helps them survive the early game, draws them a card, gives them access to a recursive late-game threat, AND gives them extra land drops, which is what their deck cares about?"
    "Who could have possibly predicted this?"
    "-surprised pikachu face-"

    Quote from Ryperior74 »
    and lotus cobra that’s the most important part of the deck

    and to make it worse watch people replace uro in the omnath decks with Azusa, Lost but Seeking


    Uro filled a unique role in the deck, and without him these ramp decks will be far less dominant. Uro provided both the acceleration and longevity needed for these decks to reach their late game, gave them a replacement card to work with, and sat in the graveyard to come back later in the game as a huge beater that generated insane amounts of value. Azusa won't be anywhere near Uro in terms of serving as a viable replacement, because she doesn't fill the same role. The deck will still be great, but it will definitely have more trouble surviving to the late game.
