    Here's hoping the surprise free card is Arcane Signet.


    This is now confirmed

    Also got this in my email today..ugh.. Pretty sure this always happens.

    There's a massive difference between the equip costs.



    Well, they are certainly different but I don't really see any 'massive' difference there.

    Empyrial Plate requires 4 mana to get online.
    Hand of Vecna requires either 3 mana (plus 1-7 life) *or* 5 mana go get online.

    1) How many games will you top-deck this card? A reasonable %, I think we'll agree. (It is a dead draw.)
    2) Other side of the coin, how many games will you be at too low a life (or too many cards) to even use this card?

    To your question, how do these play patterns compare to Grafted Wargear? Well...

    1) Top-deck? THRILLED. No problems whatsoever.
    2) Too low a life. LOL, problem likely solved now, LET'S GO.

    Now, I don't think this is a fair estimation of actual play patterns. It's WCD and that isn't fair or accurate. But, neither is focusing 100% on its BCD either, which is what a lot of folks seem to be doing.

    Testing will bear out the truth. Let us know!

    Why is everyone (literally, everyone) comparing this to Grafted Wargear when, stripping it down for a sec, Empyrial Plate seems like a far more accurate comparison in its function and typical play patterns. Shrugs I don't think that's a very cubeable card but maybe I am wrong.

    "something only seen previously in Un-sets comes to black border"

    A secondary deck, maybe?


    Yes, really sounds like it will be these 'Dungeon' cards we keep hearing about.

    Magic is *plenty* overly complex without something like that. Probably not a fan of this but I will wait and see what they are..

    Well, Elf/Spider is pretty clearly a Drider.

    How do you feel about Stoneforge today?

    I feel without Batterskull, Skullclamp or Kaldra Compleat (I don't run it though) in my deck, she's not really worth it.


    Honestly, she's been in my sights for removal for a while now. She just doesn't pull her weight in my environment for the simple fact my cube is too big and not enough quality targets for her to merit inclusion. The equipments seem to do just fine without her in the mix.

    Magic will surely survive this. Maybe some of you won't, but, to be clear, Magic will probably survive that too. (Believe it or not, so will you.)

    Anyone complaining these don't belong in Magic is hanging on way too tightly. Anyone complaining these drive Magic to an unaffordable place probably hasn't been playing Magic very long, tbh.

    While I respect other folks' viewpoints and personal taste, I am unconvinced these are some horrible thing that simply should not exist. arms crossed

    I'm going to try it out for sure--I do still run Sinkhole and I do run all-snow lands. Several of my non-basics do also make :symc:. The Overload clause means potential Armageddon-type wins so it might be a higher pick in our drafts than Sinkhole was.

    I took out actual Armageddon a while ago to make room for other stuff so this also feels like an easy way to sneak that back in. Evil Lol

    Uh? wow! This card does everything. Too good almost.


    It's WAY too good. This guy's as pushed as Questing Beast, tbh. About the *only* thing that "balances" him is that he's only 1 toughness and has no evasion. Both of those can be remedied but it takes a bit of work.

    Not sure which red 1-drop I'll replace to put this guy in but it probably won't be too hard to figure out. He easily deserves a spot in both my cubes, tbh. My poor wallet but I'm happy to do it--this set it so great. I really do think they designed it for me holy *****. BOTH my cubes are getting a total shot in the arm with this set I'm *deliriously* happy over here. Grin

    What this guy goes is one of my absolutely most favorite thigs to do in a game of Magic, especially in a very high-powered environment like mine--windmill slam-dunk for me without question.

    Quite happy to test this over Dreadbore a card that seems a bit outclassed these days, honestly.
