    The fact to limits the cost to you availble lands matters alot.


    Reminder it’s a piece of cake to get tons of lands

    Heck Collective Voyage can get you to high cost level in 1 turn


    That means very little, you're not going to win a lot of games by casting only two spells per turn cycle

    I'm not convinced that this card is good in EDH, and in Modern it seems questionable at best


    Nope not good reason true there’s those problems and probably not back break but did you remember there’s thousands among thousand of tricks to exploit/abuse the cons for example

    You could flickerwisp or bounce to hand like effects and you can keep going till it comes back or you can sac it and get it back later with recursion

    Heck at 10 lands (gotten quickly for certain decks) cast Omniscience for free then sac this and then your good to go


    None of those hoops are worth jumping through in order to exploit this card, especially in EDH

    If you Flickerwisp this card then you can't cast your spells for free anymore so what's even the point

    If you're rapidly accelerating into a ton of lands then you get to the point where you can just hardcast the spells that you want to cheat into play, making this card win-more

    The best application I can see for Fires of Invention is just like zirzhas said, in a Titanshift build

    Why couldn’t it be three +1\+1 counters


    Because a 3 mana 5/5 at common would be absurd in monocolored draft decks?

    Finally it took them Forever to get a preview of something that makes a knight token


    Bruh The Circle of Loyalty was literally spoiled like 10 days ago, what are you even talking about
    And then there's Doom Foretold

    Holy crud man if it was 2 instead of 3 this would have hit modern despite being sorcery


    I find that doubtful, even if it hit 2-drops this card wouldn't be efficient enough to justify being played in Modern

    It's not the first time we've seen this card, Reave Soul was played briefly in Standard when it came out in Magic Origins

    I think it’s a monster in the Arthurian story

    What’s weirder is it’s not a hydra typing since it has 3 heads


    Having three heads doesn't automatically make it a Hydra, you don't see people complaining about Underworld Cerberus not being a Hydra

    I really don't think the precon previews on the 6th should even be counted

    Garruk looks pretty good this time around. This is what Vraska, Relic Hunter wishes she could be.

    So in order to reduce their environmental impact, they're going to replace all of their product packaging with paper-based stuff, which requires the harvesting of more trees...?

    Logic checks out

    Hopefully they'll find some other biodegradable alternative to paper, or they'll stick to recycled paper materials exclusively.

    Because when I think of a thief of crowns, the first thing my mind goes to is someone who makes food and turns various objects and people into deer

    This dude doesn't seem all that great to me, although turning some of your opponent's best creatures into vanilla 3/3s later in the game could be useful

    Correction, you knew this, but for a few of us, Christmas come early haha!


    You're right, I'm sorry for assuming that most people on this forum actually know things

    This info has been plastered all over Wizards of the Coast social media accounts since at least August 30th

    I thought we already knew this? They told us a while ago that we'd be getting spoilers on September 4th.

    Yea I figured Hogaak would get banned still to broken even with brdige from below getting banned (ps why is it still banned of Hogaak is gone?) anyway atleast legacy/vintage and commander will have a place for him (reminder jimmy did very well with Hogaak in modern horizons commander game)

    faithless looting really why that has it ben breaking backs in modern

    stoneforge mystic whoa that’s a mega large gamble for sure of unbanning it karn, the great creator is the best defense I can think of for now but more defense has happened though


    Bridge from Below is gonna stay on the banlist for the time being because it's still a very abusable card without Hogaak
    Bridgevine was one of the fastest decks in the format before Hogaak was printed; the only reason why it wasn't played more is because all of the Looting decks in the format were much more consistent while also being similarly fast. Unbanning Bridge in Modern while banning Looting would result in the rest of the format slowing down while keeping Bridgevine's speed the same, which would possibly make it the fastest deck in Modern.

    Have you been paying attention to Modern? Faithless Looting has absolutely been breaking backs in Modern; the speed of the entire format has been defined by Looting decks recently, with slower decks being almost completely crowded out of the meta. Many decks would need to pack a disproportionate amount of maindeck graveyard hate in order to even stand a chance, and it's the primary reason why a card like Surgical Extraction inflated to become a $50 card.

    Stoneforge Mystic isn't that much of a gamble; there is plenty of artifact hate in Modern now, especially with new additions like Collector Ouphe and Force of Vigor. Furthermore, Stoneforge Mystic does a great job of accomplishing what Wizards wants to do with the format, which is to slow it down and draw games out a little more. Modern Horizons also accomplished this with slower and grindier cards like Urza, Yawgmoth, Seasoned Pyromancer, Ranger-Captain of Eos, and the horizon lands, and unbanning Stoneforge Mystic is the next step towards accomplishing that goal.
