Ultimate Masters: MMI Review

    I think most people are fairly certain SFM does not deserve to be on the banlist, but I hope most of us have a healthy level of skepticism when it comes to the Ban/Restricted Team recognizing that fact.

    I don't think we'll see Electrodominance, at least not in Living End. It's a cool card, but I don't think the deck wants a bad Blaze that only works if you draw Living End.

    Kinda sad we didn't get any real UW Control worthy cards (if not from Ravnican Azorius, when?), but I guess that's to be expected with how much Teferi's printing screwed the pooch in terms of Standard Control's power level. I doubt we get any Modern-pushed control cards until he's rotated out.

    I guess I just haven't been on the end of double Arclight Phoenix much? Sure, there are some busted things that Faithless Looting does, but I can race those things. When my opponent does Ancient Stirrings, find Krark-Clan Ironworks, I know that I am dead at 4 mana. No specific amount of damage, just Engineered Explosives for any number less than 6 and infinite damage in 2 point intervals.

    *I guess Ancient Stirrings is technically also "raced" by killing them before they have 4 mana, but it is easier to see damage on the board than knowing when your opponent will have 4 mana (opponent with Mind Stone and Mox Opal) AND have the other necessary pieces. I mean, it's sort of assumed that they have the other pieces, but it is not always the case. When creatures are attacking you, you will take the damage each turn unless you kill the creature or block it.


    But Phoenixes have haste, and there are tons of ways to get them into the graveyard. It's the same exact thing as a combo. You don't see anything from them, then there are 3 3/2s coming at your face. The only difference is they usually can't kill you immediately, but having you on a 1-turn clock is pretty good, especially when destroy effects are meaningless.

    Nowhere yet, chances are we'll be seeing quite a few more Zombie creature types in April.

    Probably just a stylized way of saying a bunch of Planeswalkers are fighting over junk.

    I've hit two Azusa's, two Trinket Mages, and a Sakura-Tribe Scout off Stirrings before. Not technically impossible.

    As much as Daretti is main storyline I guess... Yeah gonna pass on this one. Partially just on principle after how God awful the last time was, and these PWs are less chase-worthy than Teferi. Also not crazy about the arts this time around.

    Beautiful. If I played legacy or cutthroat EDH I would totally grab that Food Chain.

    Hopefully the Rhystic ends up printed somewhere else with that art, it is lovely, although I do enjoy the old art as well.

    "Players love this format"... Is this actually true? I had heard things weren't so hot with Bo1s.

    This is just the name of the next Transformers TCG product, right? /s

    Seriously though, now that they are actively making both those IPs, I would think they would avoid titles that honestly could be easily mistaken for being from the other IP.

    I honestly think Restricted cards exist in Vintage solely because it is technically the only format where every single card can be played (except for Ante and dexterity cards). Banning cards is antithetical to the entire purpose of the format. I'm not sure there really is much to be gained by implementing a Restricted list in other formats; it adds a level of difficulty to managing events where you need to be able to show you only have 1/2 of a card instead of 4 (sure, that's already a thing, but it would be more tempting for people to sneak in copies 3-4 of Twin than a fifth KCI), and if you're restricting a card, isn't it already on its way to being ban-worthy?

    That first card doesn't actually counter anything, I'm guessing you want something along the lines of "When ~ adapts, counter target activated or triggered ability."

    Interesting, this is the only one of the cycle that has the same cmc on both sides, right?

    Some weird cross between the Red Skull and an alien that's holding a big carrot.
