    Haha, will be so amazing in my Scarab God deck. Exile a dude, make a 4/4 copy that's a Zombie, make a second Zombie, drain for 2+ on next upkeep!
    Great card! Grin

    Being critical is fine, we should be critical.
    A few people I know are being petty, complaining about good rares being re-printed. This set is chock full of value at all rarities. Just good staple cards and some good chase rares and EDH cards too. Sure, there is a little bulk, but that's fine.
    I'd love to get a playset of these alt art Fatal Push, they are just gorgeous!

  • posted a message on Set boosters (yet another new type of booster)
    Yeah this is kinda cool but Imma just buy more 2XM or singles.
    Nothing here really appeals to me? I want X commons, Y Uncommons, Z Rares/Mythics.
    I don't care about the art stuff a ton, and you seem to get more commons and less uncommons so...if there's a chase uncommon I guess you're out of luck?
    Meh. Just draft boosters for me.

    , as I won't be purchasing Commander Legends because Gavin Verhey geeked out about Baron Sengir. Only Zendikar fetches or Three Visits or Riding the Dilu Horse or Cruel Tutor will save that set now. BIG reprints, ,like Top, etc.


    That's somewhat get your head out of the clouds wishing of reprints

    Were almost certain it's focused more on new cards rather than reprints in commander legends plus almost everytime everyone anticipates reprints like this you guys end up with disappointment
    (but more hope with double masters based on henrumornthat has quite a few correct)

    But we will get reprints

    By the way cruel tutor that's not the right reprint everyone want it's imperial seal more expensive strictly worse vampric tutor


    Thank you for everyone's clarity on this topic, and for redirecting me with proper roadmaps.
    I do think there will be some reprints among the oodles of new Commmander content, however.

    It does seem late but Seth (oioooooooootherwise known as Saffron Olive) made a great point that this was likely designed after Ultimate Masters was a hit. When IMA was a disaster they took a pause but here we are a few years after UMA, ,2XM is coming. I got my box at $400 CDN and I feel that will likely be a steal. People are just killing themselves in my feed to get the double box toppers and the box probably has a lot of other goodies too...going to be a nice treat to myself, as I won't be purchasing Commander Legends because Gavin Verhey geeked out about Baron Sengir. Only Zendikar fetches or Three Visits or Riding the Dilu Horse or Cruel Tutor will save that set now. BIG reprints, ,like Top, etc.

    But I digress..looking forward to 2XM, the new sweetness.

    Dogs having a lord doesn't make them competitive. I mean, Wild Mongrel was last good...dozens of years ago?
    It will likely be an ok draft theme and might be tier 2 Standard, maybe 1.5 if they really push some of the dogs and cats.

    So Magic Xmas land in Jor Kaddeen commander:
    Great Furnace, Mana Crypt, Sol Ring, Lightning Greaves, this bad boy, swing for 5...and don't do a hell of a lot more, but I _also drop a Sword of Fire and Ice..
    In reality though, it's going to be another way to add a little mid-game pressure, especially with all the equips I run.
    In SAtandard, with WItch's Oven and Gingerbrute and so on, should be sweet too.

    lol
    Domri...is the only one I'd want out of these, huge Village People vibes coming off him.
    Not buying this, maybe singles on the cheap.

    This might be one of the few interesting ones for me, I love the art and would play with many of these.
    That said...I'd rather get the fetchlands, and I'm not sure if the cards have "warp-foils", which is a huge concern.

  • posted a message on Full Sleeves(tatoo art) Secret Lair Drop
    Bleh, I'll just settle for the OG versions for these cards, thanks.

  • posted a message on The very first commander legends teaser
    Yeah I can see Magus of the Channel, it does fit those boxes.
    Regrowth has also been banned/restricted, and something that taps to Regrowth would be pretty saucy.

    So far Commander Legends looks pretty low-key though; Baron Sengir would need to be uncommon or common to be palatable, and the new Magus might be...ok?
    Still waiting for format-warping bombs or good reprints.

    Here's the showcase art. I don't know what I was expecting, but it sure isn't that.


    It looks like Bill the Cat merged with a parrot, which is...kinda cool, I guess?
    One rules question though: "...number of times it has mutated," can you mutate over and over? I thought once you mutated onto a critter it was over?

    At first I was: "Man, the Tarkir Wedges are rare because you can cycle them?"
    Then I saw they were fetchable tricycles and I was like: "Glad I have all those Rare wildcards stored on Arena!"

    It plays really poorly with Commander but Shivam has pretty much stated there's very little chance this gets banned, and the CAG doesn't really have a vote, but he is super reasonable in his approach
    I am gonna be jamming this in all my white decks for Commander though, haha.

    This is a good change. We're all going to lose or know someone who will lose someone to COVID-19, leaving this on a card will just accentuate the chance the people will troll others by waving the card at them and stuff. Since Judges rarely enforce unsportsmanlike, this would be a nightmare at live events.
