    Saw this over on the mothership today, but I thought spoilers start on March 14?

    Timer puts it at 6:00pm, Thursday, March 3rd for me (CST)

    Would be a nice way to revisit Gods again, though...and mummies, def need more of them.

    *edit* just saw that mummies are errated to zombies currently, ugh.

    Innistrad brought us the five enemy "Buddy" lands, would not be surprised if that is where the other five "Battle" lands end up. But then they would have to be called "Shadow" lands, right?

    That would keep all ten in standard for a while since the next rotation only drops KTK and FRF. Then by the time the first five duals are about to drop out they can introduce some other weird version that ETB untapped if you dealt combat damage to an opponent and they can be called "Blood" lands.

    Was just looking at the article again for the Legendary Cube/Prize Packs:

    "What is the relationship between the cards in the Prize Packs and the cards in the Legendary Cube?

    They are an independent selection of 149 cards. Some cards in the Legendary Cube might not be in Prize Packs and vice versa, but many will be included. This is also a change form the original announcement where it was stated that there were 150 cards in Prize Packs, and that they would all be from the Legendary Cube."

    and

    "These are all multiplayer products, but non-Commander players will find sought-after cards in Prize Packs that will help in Legacy and Vintage play too."

    So chances could still be that it could be alt art for Deathrite, and it could also not even be a card available in Commander 2015 as there are still 93 cards in the prize packs that are not from Commander 2015. /shrug, I am fine either way but I have not found anything stating that it for sure is not Deathrite Shaman.

    I have been looking at the picture of the lady that seems to be Black and Green and had a realization that it could be an alternate art Deathrite Shaman.


    Dear god man, where have you been. That discussion was sorted out months ago when they first previewed the MTGO legendary cube.


    Obviously not part of the discussion at the time. :p

    Why need BG for infect when Kalamne just needs a grafted exoskelton to win with infect. Thank goodness White and Red are back at tutoring for and using artifacts...wait.

    So not only did I click on this when I woke up this morning only to be disappointed, I somehow managed to forget I had done so two hours ago and just checked it again >_<. 5/5 will probably check again after lunch.

    It is very likely as I think the vendor to Target is called "Excel Vendor" or something (I had found a flyer from them lying around once that had some spoilers on it that I posted here a couple years back) and they service multiple stores all over the US. They most likely don't have much of an idea of what they are packaging in these things to sell them, so they just grab 4 cellophane packs, 2 promos, seal it and ship it. Add in to that part that they will need multiple shipping hubs to keep the product flowing where it needs to go, that is going to randomize your chances of what your stores receive even more.

    Just in my area alone there is some Targets that have some with 1-2 basic land packs from deck builder toolkits, but I did find another one that had two of the ally color commander decks (Prosh and Derevi). I swooped that one up for a friend's birthday gift.

    What I would be more concerned about is whether or not they claim them as damaged to WoTC, get their credits or what have you, and then instead of destroying them or sending them back they are still reselling them in these packages. If the amount of these damaged boxes are enough for them to make these bundles, I can see Wizards not wanting to have them send it all back because of having to retake is as damaged inventory they might not be able to sell, and that can look back on your balance sheets and income statements as a company.

    Yeah, any of the face cards are removed because these are a way for them to sell product where the outer box has been damaged somehow. I have found them with premium sliver and fire/lightning before. I have also found the face cards as part of the 2 pack + 2 mystery promo packages. What I miss is the clear boxes that used to have old tournament decks in them. Made a killing when I took a road trip and hit all the walmart/targets on the way from Minneapolis to Grand Forks. Found one with a Time Spiral tournament deck with a foil Lotus Bloom, then an Invasion one in another city with a foil Fact or Fiction, then when I actually got to Grand Forks the Walmart there had a full set of the first Planechase at $20 each. This was about three years ago.

    Edited to make it work better using Bloodletter Quill Templating.

    Even if they were to put enemy fetches into these decks, the spoilers are only for the 55 new cards anyways. They would probably even spend a day before releasing the full decklists on an Arcana showing the new alternate art for some cards.

    Then when the lists are revealed and they show the fetches in the decklists, our little corner of the internet can explode with all the people saying "I KNEW IT!!!".

    Honestly, I am more interested in what the new Command Tower/Opal Palace is going to be.

    Crystal Keep
    Land
    T: Add 1 to your mana pool.
    T, Put a blood counter on Crystal Keep: Add 2 to your mana pool and lose two life for each blood counter on Crystal Keep. This mana may only be used to cast your commander.

    Crystal Keep (Take #23)
    Land
    T: Add 1 to your mana pool.
    T, Pay 2 life: Put a blood counter on Crystal Keep.
    T, Remove X blood counters from Crystal Keep: Add X mana to your mana pool, where X is twice the number of counters removed this way. This mana may only be use to cast your commander.

  • posted a message on Nissa, Vastwood Seer + Nissa's Renewal
    If I have a Nissa, Vastwood Seer and four lands in play, then play Nissa's Renewal to grab three lands and put them on to the battlefield, since they all enter the battlefield at the same time that I control only four lands would Nissa's intervening if clause trigger for her to transform? I want to say it would because of Scapeshift decks relying on the same kind of templating for Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle.

    If someone casts Villainous Wealth for X = 6 and Part the Waterveil is revealed, can they choose to play it with Awaken and not pay the mana cost because of Villainous Wealth to take an extra turn and get the 6 counters?

    Once I saw that you could just keep awakening the same land, my brain exploded. Now here is hoping for some kind of kor/elf shaman that reduces awakening costs.
