  • posted a message on Double Masters 2XM New reprint product
    I’m more curious than anything about seeing what gets new art. I’m not jumping to conclusions that there could be new artwork of cards in this set, am I? That would be the only way I’ll buy singles (foils) from this set, depending on a case to case basis.

    People spotted differences between the original 4th Edition printing and the domestic based Alternative 4th Edition prints. There would certainly be something Wizards missed reprinting Reserved list cards. They’d have to do a lot of very impressive reverse detective work to pull it off, not to mention the “secret” would eventually leak some other way.

    If that’s who this is for, I’m kinda ok with it. There’s really nothing I’d buy packs for, I don’t play draft so that doesn’t register on my radar, there’s not a large number of cards I’d buy singles for, and for the most part I’d still track down the original foil printing in nearly all cases anyway. Really the only thing they can get me is if they do brand new art of the small card pool I’ll buy for.

    I’ll pick up 4 foil Experimental Overloads for a possible Weird deck I might build someday. I don’t know what I want for Weird tribal, maybe a Weird lord that gives Weird creatures prowess.

    This, the up-ticking of prowess up to deciduous, and maybe Animal Sanctuary are really the only positives I can take away from M2021.

    Man, this is like Time Spiral block 2.0 for me, I'm drinking it all in like mad!!! Smile

    Back when I got my PhD, friends of mine who actually had no idea of Magic (but knew that I played) got their hands on an image of Barrin, Master Wizard and photoshopped my face on to him (there's a mild resemblance although I have a lot less hair and beard, but not nearly as grey...) and created a new textbox to mirror my own "wizardly" abilities in science. Teach It was really a wonderful surprise.


    What do you have a PhD in?

    Another brand new creature with prowess, that’s cool.

    And it’s “put three cards into your hand”, not “draw three cards.” Not sure if that’s a big enough difference to exploit anywhere.

    Hmmm. I wonder if I should make room for this in a casual deck that casually uses cascade....

    So, it would complicat things but isn’t inherently problematic according to the rules?

  • posted a message on Issues there could have been using prowess counters
    Mark Rosewater mentioned had prowess stuck around as an evergreen keyword by the time Ikoria was developed and created there would have been headache issues had prowess been used as one of the keyword abilities. I don’t see any issues but then again I’m not a rules expert. Would there absolutely have been problems keeping track of prowess counters on the stack or something?

    I hope this means prowess becomes deciduous now, even if the last Storm scale rating had it at a 4. I’ve come around on this creature keyword ability, even if this had the weaker flavor of the rest of the evergreen keywords.

    Is this our +1/+1 lord of a creature type that hasn’t gotten until now? I’m assuming there will be errata dogs now.

    The very, very very unlikely-hood that Sliver Queen gets a new card is going to throw lots of problems and conundrums into my very casual Sliver Queen hive deck. Like do I include that version in that deck, or does show she go into other specific sliver Hive decks I have, or does she go into my future sighted sliver hive deck.

    I could see prowess returning for Core 2021. It’s a 4 on the storm scale. It will see print again.
