Quote from Xcric »any gimmick to sell this flaming trash pile of a set i suppose.
would've been nice if they put effort into it to sell it on its own merit, and included relevant reprints in it as normal, dedicating more effort to balancing standard where necessary but sure i guess lets go with a gimmick instead
its a nice list... but its also a real *****ty list with no real theme or cohesion to anything. you can get an absurdly priced scroll rack, or you know, argothian scion. so we get a reduced chance to pull something from the list, and then an even further reduced chance to pull something of meaningful value from the list on top of that.
gotta keep them gambling away their dollars.
i'm just so absolutely over this FOMO gambling bull*****.
Quote from Xcric »Okay that's great. That's marvel. That's not wizards, and that's not magic.
Though magic already has $100 boosters and a large portion of the playerbase is vocally opposed to that practice already.
At best this thread is baseless speculation done in an inflammatory way, at worst... well we'll see.

somewhere in the world, people go to sleep already and they have no cards to dream about ^^
Quote from Eesha »quite an ironic necro-thread, if you think about it.
Quote from Melkor »damn these people. none of the bans actually matter to me, but they just keep banning and banning. remember when they used to UNBAN stuff? the most common thing used to be to ease the sting by giving something back, now they just take.
Quote from Courier7 »Quote from Lectrys »I don't think Oko will get banned in Modern (and I'm speaking as a Modern player). He's too vulnerable to immediate hard removal like Assassin's Trophy and Abrupt Decay (he makes a Food token immediately quite often), the counterspells and targeted discard in Modern nab him quickly and harshly enough (heck, Mystical Dispute has risen in maindecks)
Perhaps I am missing something here, but the cards you mention are also legal in Pioneer so why were Pioneer decks having such a difficult time against this particular planeswalker? Trying to use Thoughtseize and Negate were not good enough against other decks? Caveat: I have not played a game of MtG in about a year so there may be nuances I am missing.

Quote from damagecase »First of all, an imminent 7/8 isn't pressure? There is plenty of pressure there and no its not a control finisher because it is a dumb beatstick but as goyf has shown innumerable times a dumb beatstick is often times enough.
As to the bob comparison, TiTi might very well keep you alive by blocking that early goyf, nacatl or guide until later in the game when if it flips and you can protect it or you opponent has run out of removal, it will win the game.
Actually, I'd say TiTi is a better late game card than bob because it can stop a reasonable sized body and is four instants away from becoming crushing and its only 2 mana so later game you'll have mana open to instant or sorcery.
