  • posted a message on Challenger Decks 2019
    Based on Gavin Verhey's comments on the Professor's video a couple weeks, there is a slim to none chance that any RNA cards will appear in these challenger decks because the quickest turnaround they could get with deck construction, testing, getting the cards printed, then shipping them out is around 3 months, and RNA has barely been out 1 month. We're lucky if there are just a few GRN cards included. According to Gavin, they are trying to get these challenger decks out to us as quick as they can so that they are as relevant as possible, but there is only so much they can do.

    Why is the first letter of so many card names not capitalized?

    Quote from DeLocke ยป
    As much as I love everything about this card, I'm gonna drop two rulings that'll unfortunatly kill a lot of the hype :/

    1) Spells with a blank in the cost space have no cost, this isn't the same as a 0 (See Memnite). they cannot be cast and so cannot be used with this spell.
    2) Casting a spell must obey all its timing restrictions, so you can only use this with instants and cards with flash. If it let you play a spell, you could throw anything out but unfortunatly it must be cast as per the rules, just ignoring the cost.


    False on both accounts.

    As Foretold and cards that have Cascade are what enable Modern combos like As Foretold-Ancestral Vision and Living End. Secondly, if Electrodominance said "Until end of turn, you may cast a card with converted mana cost X or less without paying its mana cost.", THEN you would have to obey timing restrictions because it says you have the rest of the turn to do so. This says you may do it now, as in it's part of the resolution of the spell. This absolutely works with Hypergenesis, Ancestral Vision, Living End and the like.

    No she doesn't die. You can shock her for 2 damage, but she's still on the battlefield because you're still in the middle of resolving the spell as you're trying to cast your freebie, which will trigger Lavinia's second ability. However, triggers can't be put onto the stack until after state based actions are checked, which will see that Lavinia has lethal damage marked on her, who will then die. Once state based actions are finished, her triggered ability is then put onto the stack to counter your freebie.

    Might be a good cube addition. Simic getting exile is sweet.

    In Commander, in decks with GBU like Muldrotha or Atraxa, being able to Growth Spiral and then drop in a Bojuka Bog at instant speed is awesome. Sure you can just Crop Rotation instead, but where's the fun (or ramp) in that?

    I was wondering the same thing about there being a number crunch thread. MTGS usually has one up, so I guess no one here wanted the responsibility this time. I would do it myself if I wasn't so busy with the holidays coming up.

    It's the subtle changes from set to set like the number of cards in a set that can sometimes go unnoticed.

    UMA - 254
    GRN - 259
    M19 - 280
    BBD - 254
    DOM - 269
    A25 - 249
    RIX - 196
    IMA - 249
    XLN - 279

    There really isn't a clear pattern that is noticeable with the exception of a sorta pattern that is masters sets are usually 249 with a 15M - 53R - 80U - 101C rarity breakdown, whose pattern was deviated from with UMA. With that said, large sets like this usually have exactly 15 mythics with the exception of DFCs skewing that count from time to time. Having a general idea of how print sheets work, I wasn't sure if we were losing some rares to make way for the extra mythics, which is why I asked.

    How many rares are in the set since we are getting 20 mythics instead of 15?

    I've been dying to prove to people at my LGS and other people the correct way to pronounce "bogle" and the flavor text couldn't have made my argument more clearer.

    A few things about these masterpiece planeswalker packs:

    1. On the back side of each pack where the print code is, each pack is labeled with the name of the masterpiece planeswalker that you find inside. For what it's worth, if you actually plan on drafting with this like they suggest you do like what's written on the inside of the box, you'll have to randomize the packs face up so no-one can see the print codes, even if you still have to lift up the back flap to read them. On that positive side, it's reassuring that you know you're getting one of all 8 planeswalkers as advertised just by looking at the print codes.
    2. Inside each masterpiece planeswalker booster pack, the last 4 items in the pack are: the rare or mythic, then the masterpiece planeswalker, then a random guildgate, then a token card that is associated with the planeswalker character somehow (for the most part, anyway).
    3. The tokens each have the mythic edition (MED) set symbol, with the emblems getting new profile art based on their artwork in their masterpiece versions.

    001/008 White 1/1 Soldier token
    002/008 Black 2/2 Zombie token
    003/008 Artifact 1/1 defender token
    004/008 Elspeth emblem
    005/008 Liliana emblem
    006/008 Ral emblem
    007/008 Teferi emblem
    008/008 Vraska emblem

    The foiling process is not like Expeditions, Inventions or FTV. It seems very similar to a normal foil with not much added thickness.

    Well my package arrived today, and stupid FedEx left it on the doorstep of my busy apartment complex. Thankfully I woke up in time to check to see that it was still there.

    They're just as beautiful in person.

    It's not the first foil for Lord of Atlantis. It was a timeshifted "purple" rare in Time Spiral and thus had it available in foil.
