    In fairness they changed how phasing worked a few times even after its initial release so it is plausible to have an errata that significantly affects how a mechanic operates post-release.


    That said this is a remarkable development. Cards that were banned in Vintage that aren’t ante, physically involved (Chaos Orb for example), gameplay modifying (Shaharazad), silver border or novelty à la Conspiracies hasn’t happened in a long time.

    It’s a huge scar on the design and designers involved. Now we have to see how this affects standard and modern. I bet it’ll be as widespread as the original Mirrodin bannings in ‘03/‘04.

    Narset can now use Narset to kill Narset.

    That's an HBO series waiting to happen.

    Her first ability is a fine complement and shout-out to the Jeskai's "Prowess." Her ultimate isn't that hard to get especially with all the proliferate in Standard at the moment particularly in blue.

    Forgot about this earlier--you can no longer maindeck the best board wipes if you want Jegantha as a Companion.

    Cool. I've always wanted a reason to run Bearer of the Heavens.

    Or run Changelings and then surprise with Endemic Plague. That'll teach 'em!

    Who are you again?

    Anyway.

    This is merely a hollow gesture for publicity on something which will have little meaning outside of the game once M21 and Zendikar III become the focal points of people's attention.

    In fact they're allowing people to profit off it this because the original print will garner a much larger price value due to its scarcity than concentrating on the issue at hand. If WOTC/Hasbro is so concerned about the effects of the corona virus, then maybe they can donate a portion of sales of the product to vaccine research or support for those affected. That's better than a knee-jerk reaction with zero communal benefits as a result.

    Thank you for expending digital and mental energy on focusing on my comment. It shows that responding to it has more value than attending to other activities in your life. So thank you again for that wonderful investment.

    Would it help if they posted their name a second time at the bottom of every post?

    Maybe. It seems to be making people pay attention.

    Well we're definitely getting a heavy wedge-themed set.

    That's pretty cool. And Instant at that too.

    posted a message on [IKO] Ikoria spoiler season begins on the Magic Twitch stream
    The whiners emerge once again.

    If you don't recall, Magic was originally designed as a "time-filler" for D&D players while they were either immersed or waiting between campaign actions (or something to that effect), so Magic is heavily influenced by those sorts of games that use dice and such only in a different way. The ability counters will be clunky yes but honestly it will help with the flow and strategic clarity of the game and allow for smoother moves rather than guesswork. And if you're worried about ability counters, that's what sealable snack bags are for. No biggie.
