Dec 17, 2020protoaddict posted a message on [KHM] Realmwalker (Buy-A-Box promo)— Rhapsody of Fire preview1 mana cheaper than Vizier makes me think this is far better than some are giving it credit for. If anything in tribal EDH lists it can easily function as a second vizer at the least, and it could see play in elf combos.Posted in: The Rumor Mill

The word kaldheim looks rockstar/heavy metal style
so that means “party hard shred harder” secret lair was secretly a preview of kaldheims showcase art style
I really hope this is the way the showcase stuff looks because it is totally rad. The font is borderline black metal/doom metal style which is very fitting anything Scandinavian / Nordic, and the art itself has a Heavy Metal Comic feel. It would be a LOT of work to do all the showcases in the set with full art ala the secret lair though.
Nov 24, 2020Overall yes but the individual cards and color templates are hit or miss. With a little work on the clarity I far prefer these, though it is just yet another premium treatment that will not match all the other premium treatments we have. I am almost surprised there were not full art etched cards, or etched lands or whatever.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Nov 2, 2020Posted in: The Rumor MillQuote from Tiro of Meletis »Champion's Helm is far and away superior. Solid Hexproof and +2/+2. Paying one time 3 mana and only 1 to equip is better than paying a low upfront cost and 3 to equip each time. 3 and 1 are good mana costs for tutoring in artifacts, but Helm is the best of these.
And requires a reprint.
I dislike this logic a lot. It is a singleton format. Just because you already have the best thing in your list does not mean you don't also want the next best thing that is also very good. Fewer colors you use the more powerful this effect becomes and the less likely you are to be able to find either one of them in your deck because you don't have the options to go fish them out.

Are you kidding me? It only costs 1 then 3 (or 5) to equip. Of course, it loses it's effectiveness with multicolored generals, but still, most decks are 2-3 colors so it will always protect from 2-3 colors at the least! The +3/+3 bonus is just gravy....Quote from Cranky »A large and unimpressed 'meh' for this one. Not the worst equipment in the world, but very much not actually good.
Going straight into my Urza, Lord High Artificer deck.
No? The protections are not the important part of swords. The triggers are. Maybe mono-white is desperate enough for this I guess, but I can't think of a good reason for anyone else to bother.
I can think of a whole lot of reasons Traxios and your Eldrazi Legends may want to also be progenitus. This card represents a pretty huge boost for colorless commanders who are already at a huge disadvantage, and along with some of the other goodies in this set like Lotus and War room you may actually see viable colorless decks in the future.

Oct 29, 2020WOTC made a card that I don't think they can actually ever ban. The card is legal and playable in 1 format at printing, Commander. That is it. Where as with Oko, or Lurrius or Omnath, if you ban it in like 3-4 formats, there is usually still a place where it is playable, which is usually the way it can be justified for a ban. Imagine buying this set, getting this staple 100+ dollar card, and then having them tell you it is literally a worthless piece of cardboard you won't even be able to sell because it is not legal in any set where it functions?Posted in: The Rumor Mill
This is a mistake card, they should have just made it sac for 2 mana or something.
Oct 29, 2020You know, there used to be a Kobold Cheerios deck back in the day, and though I doubt this adds anything to that except style points, there is a very large part of me that really does wish to see this find a competitive home. If could be interesting in Enchantress/Boggles lists because it has the dual mode functions of A) being edict bait to protect your boggle and B) Can voltron up.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
A man can dream.
Oct 29, 2020protoaddict posted a message on [CMR] Belbe, Corrupted Overseer and Court of Ambition— Nopi previewsDisappointed with this Court. I guess it could be a finisher in 8Rack or something but it costs to much for that list and that list has almost no way to take back monarch if it loses it, so it's probably a trap to play it there.Posted in: The Rumor Mill

Not entirely quite infinite, since you still have to draw and discard for each iteration. So you're limited to the number of cards in your deck, and if you knock out all but one opponent, you will no longer be able to loop.
It IS a huge spike of damage that should easily knock out an opponent or two before running out of gas, though!
You generate a surplus if you have all 3 opponents. There are many game states where that will be enough to get you there.
Positive interactions with Lightning-Rig Crew as well, so Pemmin's Aura and Freed from the Real will let you go infinite on that as well.
