    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

    We got cmc version now a power version too


    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.

    Yeah, if that hybrid guy doesn't scream "devotion's in the pipeline!" then I don't know what does

  • posted a message on Hasbro will phase out all plastic in their packaging by 2022
    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.

  • posted a message on Oko, Thief of Crowns
    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.

  • posted a message on [C19] the tokens
    How many Pegasus tokens are they going to include? With Storm Herd in the set, they might give us two or three tokens and have us use dice to represent tapped, untapped, summoning sick, etc.

    Quote from Ryperior74 »
    And looks like they are infact doing it how they did in core 2020 from here on out good move


    Ah yes, I do recall MaRo saying on his Tumblr that this would be the new default token look from now on

    Quote from Carthage »
    Building atla as a combo deck is exceptionally boring. You are playing naya and only putting 2 creatures in your deck? If all you are trying to do is win games you can do so much better.


    "Boring" is subjective. To me, hitting something like a Birds of Paradise or an Oracle of Mul Daya off of an Atla trigger sounds boring.

    Although you're right, there are much better options for tryhard combo players.

    Quote from AnImAr_ »
    I agree. They should've done a different token for this.


    I would have liked a 7/7 Eldrazi token with annihilator 1, much like the one created by Hedron Fields of Agadeem.
