    Reef Worm thank heavens this would have spiked faster than a rocket if not reprinted in this


    Why, because Adrix and Nev can turn it into eight 9/9s? Lmao yeah sure, just like how Birgi, God of Storytelling would spike to $100 because Grinning Ignus was reprinted, right?

    Janky Standard and EDH cards aren't going to spike 1,000+% just because of some wacky new card, unless their interaction is powerful, consistent, and broad enough to be integrated into a wide multitude of decks. The only exception to this that I've seen for Strixhaven is Chain of Smog as an infinite magecraft enabler, which is a card from a 19-year-old set that's only ever had a single printing. And even then, Chain of Smog is already starting to see some retraction.
    I highly encourage people to think more critically before they jump to conclusions and make these goofy claims about bad cards becoming absurdly expensive staples.

    The tables I play at and regular playgroup will ban all this universe beyond crap straight away just like TWD. That will suck for people coming to the store with these cards in their deck not being able to get in a game.


    Then it sounds like the problem there would stem from your playgroup, no?


    Sounds to me like the problem is Wizards making a mockery of the game and creating the false impression that this garbage will actually be accepted by everyone, no?

    You better believe there will be a LOT of playgroups who will want to have nothing to do with ‘universe beyond’.


    "Sorry new guy, but you can't play with anyone here because we collectively decided to not accept those Warhammer cards that are in your deck. I know it's not fair to you, but Wizards forced us to gatekeep you out of our group, so really it's their fault that you can't play, not ours."

    That's more or less what you sound like from my perspective. You're free to disallow anyone with those cards from playing games with you, but I'm free to think that your playgroup is being whiny and immature for doing so.

    posted a message on (Leak) Strixhaven confirmed to have commander 2021
    Here’s to hoping that these decks will have more universally good EDH cards like the Ikoria precons did, rather than the ZNR and KHM ones.

    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).

    posted a message on Two new planeswalkers Niko Aris and Tyvar Kell (bio only)
    "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.

    posted a message on Kaldheim first look (with snow)
    "Kaldheim is coming to #*$&ing melt your mind hole."
    "Available basically &#^%ing everywhere – February 5"
    "They live here. It's $#%ing *$&#()."
    "We're also going to see and meet some pretty bad@$$ Planeswalkers."

    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!"
