    MaRo ponders..."can I poop in a mylar baggie and expect people to buy it? I think I can..."


    MaRo designs Standard sets, he doesn't sell anything

    The only solid info we know as to the card pool is that none of it is from the Reserve List.


    Inb4 it has old cards slotted into it, like the Zendikar priceless treasures

    How in the world is Beanstalk Giant a Modern playable card?
    Mystic Sanctuary has a much higher chance of seeing Modern play than an overcosted beatstick with an overcosted ramp spell attached

    AdmiralBurbia called the name perfectly, nicely done

    Seems like a pretty standard effect, I kinda wish it made a Goblin token but I appreciate the flavor of a Dwarf token.

    I can't wait for a Miracles player to fetch this land in response to a Counterbalance trigger
    Or put a Terminus back on top after their opponent has overextended into rebuilding their board

    kiron is right too, it can be reused with Daze, you can get back counterspells with it, you can draw the card immediately using cantrips... Card is sweet.

    Beast Within was considered a break, and this is..not?
    Beast Within destroyed, this does not. Lignify and Song of the Dryads are precedents


    To be fair, Lignify and Song of the Dryads are cited by MaRo as color pie breaks.

  • posted a message on Not a spoiler but confirms that another errata wave is coming
    Why am I buying physical cards if hundreds, if not thousands are going to be inaccurate? Every burn spell, tons of creatures.

    If WotC wants to invalidate thousands of cards they sold to us because "lol flavor" then they should be buying back old copies and replacing them with newly printed, accurate versions.


    This is an incredibly dumb line of thinking, we're so deeply entwined with technology at this point that familiarizing ourselves with Oracle text isn't that hard

    The cards aren't invalidated just because the printed wording isn't up to date, and Wizards isn't going to waste their time or money printing "updated" versions with each errata just because a very tiny minority of people find it mildly inconvenient

    I'd rather they make periodic improvements to the game and retrofit preexisting cards into those changes than let it stagnate in those areas, and I would want them to put their resources into anything other than pointless reprints of cards with updated Oracle text

    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

    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
