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?
Apr 10, 2020At first I was: "Man, the Tarkir Wedges are rare because you can cycle them?"Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Then I saw they were fetchable tricycles and I was like: "Glad I have all those Rare wildcards stored on Arena!"
Apr 3, 2020Crazy Pierre posted a message on [IKO] Christian Hauck spoiler - Drannith magistrateIt 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 approachPosted in: The Rumor Mill
I am gonna be jamming this in all my white decks for Commander though, haha.
Apr 2, 2020This 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.Posted in: The Rumor Mill

My thought exactly, this is a little worrisome that Gavin needs to put himself in a card. I still don't know what he does outside of marketing, I guess?
The rest of the stuff could get pretty spicy; I'm imagining the ramping card is a critter of some sort that gets you a Plains for every counter on it.
Mar 13, 2020Crazy Pierre posted a message on Chandra's Spellbook and Secret Lair Ultimate Edition (Enemy fetches) announced.Unconcerned about the fetchlands, these were never going to be print to demand and I expect tournament players already have their copies, so these are just "in the wild" copies.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
The Chandra drop looks super sweet though, so I might pick one up if there's some cool stuff like Pyretic Ritual or other sweet Chandra cards.
Mar 7, 2020My LGS is selling packs at $6.99 CDN, which I guess is $5.00 or $5.50 USD. That's a bit more than normal, I imagine, but it's a massive lottery.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
I think Saffron Olive sussed out that the EV is sky high at the moment but will likely tank in a bit so...get your stuff now!
Feb 4, 2020Dig should go and I'd get Thassa's Oracle over Inverter, as it's likely do to problematic stuff as more and more stuff gets added to Standard.Posted in: Pioneer
I will be jamming the Inverter combo in my Sultai dredgreless; it does not really mesh with what the deck wants to do, but if I can just do "Woops I win" and get more store credit or $, I'm ok with that.
Lotus Field is fine. You can deal with it with Damping Sphere, the new equip + Assassin's Trophy or Field of Ruin, etc.
It's a combo deck, but it is fair as far as this format goes.
Jan 13, 2020They can't pre-empt Ban Ballista or Heliod without actual results.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Triskelion also costs 6 mana, as compared to two for Ballista, so it's unlikely to see play.
Mox Opal should have been bannend aeons ago, and this is coming from someone that really enjoyed Lantern Control; Lattice is just super uninteractive abd so is Oko, good riddance to all!
Jan 8, 2020I mean I don't think TS will get banned in Pioneer, but I wouldn't be opposed to it, even though I have mine. This is better than Thought Erasure though, so good work to the design team.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Jan 7, 2020Crazy Pierre posted a message on [[Official]] General Discussion of the Official Multiplayer BanlistThe expectation on my part is no changes each cycle. It is what it is, unless something like Griselbrand shows up and so on.Posted in: Commander Rules Discussion Forum
As for Recurring Nightmare being unbanned, no thanks. With the craziness coming out in the new set, along with so many ETB triggers already existing, it would just centralize games in a hurry. Yes, there's a lot of 'yard hate being played but you need to respond while RN is on the stack, right? Because then the player gets priority, returns it to hand as part of use, and even if you exile something in response they can still re-start.
As someone who used this in Duel (admittedly a format with very few tutors) to swamp Prime Time and Sundering Titan, and then moved to other utility stuff, it's just a bad feeling for the other player as well. Do not want.
Jan 7, 2020Crazy Pierre posted a message on [THB] Eidolon of Obstruction — Lee Shi Tian previewGood card for sure. Probably not fast enough for Modern or Pioneer but should alleviate some issues in Standard.Posted in: The Rumor Mill

May 29, 2019Heartbreaking.Posted in: Articles
This is simply the only place I come for any sort of Magic information, so I'm not quite sure I'll even be paying attention to Magic as much anymore after close.
Truly sorry to see this go. It is, indeed, the end of an era.
May 1, 2018Well, people saying Legends is a bad set...it's not really playable in limited or sealed. A lot of the creatures are very expensive to play. When your best limited beater is Thunder Spirit at 1WW and that's a rare card, yikes.Posted in: Articles
I do have a casual Jasmine Boreal deck that's based on destroying evil, peace prevailing, nature and the odd Shuriken, because I had thought for a long time she held a shuriken in her hand, whereas someone pointed out that she's holding a snowflake. Cards such as Fyndhorn Pollen, Northern Paladin, Southern Paladin, Penatarch Paladin, Cleanse, Shuriken, the meld Gisela and Bruna and so on. YOu get the idea, it's not very good but it's fun!
Legends is one of my fave all-time sets, but I always sucked at pack wars. My best card an Elder Land wurm and his? A Mana Drain lol...
