    posted a message on 'Mystery Booster' product
    So if I'm reading this correctly, the ONLY cards that will ever appear in foil in the "non-convention" Mystery Boosters are a selection of 121 cards? In other words, most likely the most expensive thing your can pull in these packs is a non-foil Mana Crypt?

    I ask because it's been my dream to add a foil Mana Crypt to my cube, but not if I have to pay out the ass for it.

    This card is fake. Please lock. No rarity letter next to the collector number, and the wording says "shuffle its library", which is not proper templating.

    Is anybody going to be at the panel in person tonight? The only way we'll find out what is going on is through secondhand informational reporting since there will be no streaming of this panel.

    posted a message on [RUMOR] The Commander 19 decks will be based on keywords
    I never was a fan of Morph, and for that matter, transform cards, just because I would rather be playing my cards face up instead of playing this silly game of "What do you think this might be?" I'll never play morph cards unless there's an inherent mana advantage to do so. With that said, I hope they give us some sort of artifact that reads something like:

    Ugin's Talisman - 4
    Rare
    Face down creature spells you cast cost 2 less to cast.
    Morph, Megamorph and Manifest costs of face down creatures you control are reduced by 2.

    Turn 1, play a mana dork.
    Turn 2, drop this Sorin, minus 3 you drop in Morophon from Modern Horizons, naming slivers. Cast The First Sliver for free, cascade into whatever. Cloudshredder Sliver for free, cascade into whatever. Unsettled Mariner for free, cascade into whatever, swing for 20?

    I suppose Golos is pretty good with Congregation at Dawn.

    Why do I see the Conspiracy version image of this card?

    Stick this on a Dryad Arbor with Intruder Alarm out.

    For some reason, the fact that they listed each permanent type that can be destroyed alphabetically, that pleases me.

    Is it just me, or is the font on the card titles different than the Beleren font that they've been using?

    Quote from DeLocke »
    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.
