    After some playtesting a companion card with Ponza...
    Limited testing because can only play with people in the house... still quarantined.

    So far Obosh is good! This guy solves or at least partially solves the weakness of the deck of not drawing enough threats - because he himself is a threat that can be summoned out of nowhere, as long as I can pay 5 mana. Everyone is basically double power when he's around.. Klothy's do 4 direct damage to the opponent with her ability, molten rain is now a burn spell that can kill people, glorybringer do 8 damage if it hits - amazing. Now, if only my country would stop blocking USPS shipping, so that I could order a copy of Obosh instead of playing with proxy. Excited to play the real card. Now, I'm hoping more for terravore reprint.. because he fits into the strategy with 3 cmc.

    nice, thanks for the answer. I now understand a bit why this card has a high price in the secondary market.

    you're welcome.

    Have Kaheera, Yorion, and Obosh all on my scg cart. Noticed that both Kaheera and Obosh have both dropped in price, while Yorion increased. I guess Yorion must be doing something strong.

    upon asking at the rules section. Lightning bolt would deal 6 damage if Obosh is in play. I would certainly add some bolts for some reach and removal, then decide which creatures. My deck already used Glorybringer, so that's probably going to stay. Good thing Klothys, God of Destiny is also 3 cmc, I could keep her in as well. The only hard to thing to decide is if going to have an Obosh in the main or only one in the side?

    very nice. thanks. Smile

    Hi, if I have Obosh, the Preypiercer in play, then I cast lightning bolt. Would bolt do 6 damage to the target?

    oh, I see. It's not as good as I thought. But still, thanks a lot for helping me understand the card better! Smile

  • posted a message on Needle drop
    Hi, can I cast needle drop for the card draw even if opponent did not get damaged that turn?

    And does paying life for a fetchland count as being "damaged"?

    Quote from Kryptnyt »
    I like having multiple different artworks to choose from, because oftentimes I feel very strongly that one of them is the best; I think this is at it's highest effect in Fallen Empires, Homelands, and for cards with many reprints like Urza lands and basics. Everyone has a favorite Hymn to Tourach, and that promotes trading. Even though everyone secretly knows that "Evil old man" hymns are superior, are good at making people discard the lands they needed. Doggo hymns nearly always miss. Anyways, I like it when they print promo cards today with wildly different art, and wish they did this to illustrate story points which most of us miss because we can't read.


    I didn't know that trivia about Hymn. Thanks. Grin


    Alternately named cards, the godzilla cards in particular, I don't think they should be on super competitive cards. I like it as a one-time thing, but there are a lot of cards like Pithing Needle where it's hard enough to remember the names of every card in Magic let alone the cards that have two different names but one real name. I'm sure that tournaments will have leeway with this stuff, or perhaps I'm forseeing stuff that won't even happen, but I can't help but imagine some regular tournament player dunking on some greenhorn for naming "Gigan, Cyberclaw Terror" with his Meddling Mage only to have a stupid situation arise when the other guy goes and casts his Gyruda, Doom of Depths saying "You didn't name the true name of this card!" Sometimes the judge will tell the guy he's a dilhole, and sometimes the judge will side with the dilhole. Maybe. Just my brain making up scenarios.


    it would indeed be cause a bit of confusion.. but with time, I think people would eventually get used to playing these cards in a competitive environment.

    Obosh, the Preypiercer could be a good companion for us. Most of our threats are odd cmc.. had to give up titan, but Stormbreath doing 8 with each swing would be intense.

    I like alternate arts. For example, would prefer use alternate art path to exile or scavenging ooze, as I feel they brighten up my deck. Smile
