    Eternalize I can understand as that whole concept, flavourwise, was already done and not needed.

    But no Afflict?

    I thought they didn't want guns in Magic? Well it looks like Gideon is winning the arms race. :p

    Looks like he has a good grip on the situation at hand Thumbs Up

  • posted a message on [WAR] Anti-Planeswalker Cards
    So at brunch I was thinking about cards that could be put into a planeswalker-themed set, and one of them was a card (or cards) that stopped planeswalkers from being planeswalkers. Or, "Gideon-ize" them--turning planeswalkers into creatures that lose their abilities and get a base power and toughness equal to their CMC for example, either until end of turn or ongoing until they leave the battlefield.

    Do you think we'll see cards like that? IT would make sense in a set heavily influenced by planeswalker dynamics. Might be a way to neutralize their impact at the same time.

    EDIT: Also a good way to showcase flavour-wise the PWs who "lose their spark" by making them ordinary mages.

    Ideas? Thoughts?

    Valor's Reach...that's the location in Kylem, Battlebond's storyline setting. I guess that means we won't be getting a Battlebond supplement set any time soon if that's the case...

    The artistic sty;e looks very...cartoonish? Maybe that's what it's supposed to portray to appeal to a "beginner" audience who slowly will get involved in Magic itself.

    EDIT: The interface reminds me a lot of HEarthstone for whatever reason.

    Just under two weeks until we get some visual goodies. I can hardly contain myself.

    You still get some decent value out of those decks:


    That right there warrants a purchase of one or two at least.

  • posted a message on MTGWAR - Possible Emblem Interaction?
    With War of the Spark focusing on planeswalkers and their dynamics, I'm wondering if they'll finally make something that interacts with emblems. Emblems, to me at least, are what make Planeswalkers busted because once emblems are out they're hard to deal with.

    I'm not sure how this could be done but it would make sense with all the PWs that are going to be introduced to the game all at once.

    Thoughts?

    "The enemy of my enemy is my friend." That's what I get out of the wonky alliances possibility(ies) listed under point 6.

    This is interesting just based on the wording. "Some characters aren't as lucky as Chandra." Great...who? How much of the perennial cast can we expect to have their ends handed to them?

    For the book, I hope that it actually has a matching relevance to the set and vice versa. I know it's a bit outdated (i.e almost 20 years ago) but the Nemesis book was very far off from the set. There was no mention of the Parallax in it at all, among other things.

    I'm still excited for a hard copy of the story versus digital. That's a cool change they've brought on.

    Ulgrotha wouldn't necessarily be "new," although it IS convenient that they finally are giving a planeswalker card for Serra, based on one of the most prolific characters in Magic's history.

    What would be cool, pardon the pun, is, as an homage to Magic's first "block," would be by going to Kaldheim, then to Ulgrotha, then back to Kaldheim again. Serra has a strong connection to Ulgrotha, what with her seeking refuge and eventually marrying Feroz there. It would be foolish not to capitalize on that. Ulgrotha may be a 9 on the Rabiah scale, but with Serra getting a card and back in people's minds, this might be the miracle needed to warrant a visit to the plane within the next year or so. I know I've vouched for its return a couple of times when the opportunity arose.

    Why would there be 37?

    Because Nibiru and the Annunaki are the secret forces behind controlling Bolas! Doye!

    In all seriousness, it would be a good gimmick. Not sure who it could be though that we don't know of already. Tezzeret perhaps?

    I can imagine what this would do to draft. Unless there's a stellar mythic or rare in it, first picks are probably going to be allocated to the PWs no matter which PW appears first. Unless it's like with RNA where you take the token by default and then pick.

    Interesting. I wonder what they have planned for the remnants of the Gatewatch following whatever happens in WAR. I guess that leaves out New Phyrexia as people had originally speculated, for now at least.

    Maybe the GW won't be the emphasis of the story and maybe in a year or so we'll have a "reunion" episode or reboot later down the line.

    Jaters can probably do a silent cheer by the looks of it.

  • posted a message on Is it just me, or are there almost no constructed playable Common cards in RNA?
    After drafting quite a lot, the power seems to be in the uncommons. Which itself is not so bad. And by that I mean that there are a lot of constructed-calibre uncommons here in this set, probably much more than GRN.

  • posted a message on Every booster will have a planeswalker in WAR
    Hah, I had pondered whether there would be a separate sheet for planeswalkers akin to DFCs or Legendary cards in Shadows and Dominaria respectively.

    Now we get to speculate to which rarity will they go to?
