    ...It still seems a little messy to put a few "extra" legends into the set outside of the cycle....

    "extra legends" like the Lorwyn Ashling or Brigid?

    It's perfectly possible that oona is monoblack, and that the W/U hybrid legend is the Scarecrow king. After all, Scarecrows are kithkin constructs, and the kithkin are now U/W.

    If they pacify your giant, you will never draw another land.

    I would play a 1RR enchantment that let me skip drawing lands+baited a kill spell in sideboard against control. The fact that against decks without pacifisms (which is pretty much everyone) he's also a 3/3 smasher is icing.

    He has synergy with Lash Out, Greater Gargadon, and Adder-Staff Boggart, all of which are cards I'm already running in RDW. He has synergy with the new bolt from this thread, which will also probably make it in. This guy is an absolute house, and I will be picking my set up early before they hit 8 bucks each.

    That's not exclusive to magic, though. It's a fairly good rule of thumb that anyone who wastes their time and energy making fun of something for no reason is not among humanity's brightest minds.

    I don't understand why people are shocked that wizards is putting the full spoiler in a magazine. I have multiple older scryes with full spoilers of card sets from various games, including magic.

    Giants are not a weenie tribe, but they still have playable cheap creature drops. Jotun Grunt would be very happy if the nice folks at wizards gave him a dual land in exchange for sticking him in coldsnap.

    And yes, Jotun Grunt can be the right play on turn two.

    edit: And after checking the spoiler, we already have a 3 drop aggro Giant, Blind Spot Giant, who really wants a giant in play on turn two.

    Flavorwise, U/G fits Scouts very well, see Silkwing Scout, and that's a class that hasn't been developed much in the past. Rogues are also a possibility.

    well, considering the fact that a booster pack in Israel costs us almost 6$ (no, I'm not kidding... the exact price is 5.8$), then buying a booster box means spending tons of cash...(209$ for those who can't do the math) so, 6 boosters aren't really a "gift" here... are they? Mad

    Seems like it's a gift worth almost $40. Really, complaining about free stuff is just not polite, whether you plan to take advantage of the offer or not.

    Quote from Haiku Ninja
    To me, he entire complaint that 'walker cards will be able to be Vindicated, but 'walker players can't boils down to this: Grizzly Bears die by getting Shocked, but River Bears don't. I mean, they're both green Bear creatures! It makes no sense! It's not like one is possibly more powerful than the other! Rolleyes

    If the grizzly bear lives on Endor, you must acquit!

    I think the 'you're more powerful' is a likely explanation.

    Basically, we know that the old 'walkers were still very powerful (see Nicol Bolas at the end of FS novel, who I don't believe has been brought up) while the new ones have all the not-so-itty bitty living space but none of the phenomenal cosmic powers.

    Yeah, a Basic Goblin land would just be silly. Skirk Prospector, Goblin Ringleader, Goblin Lackey, and Siege-Gang Commander are good enough as is, if they start interacting with your lands Goblins will rock legacy like a hurricane.

    Quote from technik4
    I mean for 2WW Magus of the Moat locks down creature strategies just as well...

    Well, first off black decks can have trouble getting 2WW (Obviously) and second, if they draw incinerate/char four turns after you play the magus then they will just kill it and you, in that order and probably one the same turn. If they draw incinerate/char four turns after you play braids, then then the board will look drastically different than the turn she came into play.

    In addition, braids can attack for two a turn against the decks she hurts most (control) and chump a solifuge or something against aggro. She also makes going all in on gargadon much worse.

    The new basic lands will introduce the new rule of 'islands come into play tapped'. :p

    In all seriousness however, I think this will be used to showcase something new, either a permanent switch to textless basic lands, the introduction of a sixth basic land type, or the art for the new basics will reveal something important about the block (think about how sci-fi the mirrodin ones look).

    I will be very sad and surprised if they do just give us boring basic lands in advance.

    I think this card has major sideboard potential in Scryb/Force decks.

    This card has hilarious interactions with Jester's Scepter.

    No! You cannot have either of your two copies of Adarkar Valkyrie....

    But I can!
