    This will be a fun set...if you're drafting Dimir or Selesnya.
    What am I missing about Selesnya? I was just lamenting to myself that there is very few convoke enablers. There's only so many Sworn Companions to go around and If I'm paying 3+ for a creature, I don't want to use it as a mana dork.

    If I open this pack 1 I'll definitely try to draft the Guildgate deck. Not great but a fun build around in limited.

    this does go in stompy although it would be not as good to take out elves for the quick ramp into Steelleaf.
    Mana elves don't go into stompy. They go into rampy. Turn 2 should be spent playing Kalonian Tusker or Avatar of the Resolute... or Rancor. Rancor is always a good decision.

    It's going to sting when the top two cards are lands. Red doesn't play the Draw Go game very well.

    Great art, interesting design. That said, there's a LOT of hoops to jump through to make this work. Have fun with this one Johnny.

    Color balance tells me it will most certainly be Gruul, Orzhov, and Azorius. Dovin seems like the logical choice for WU since he's already worked for Tezz. I'd guess Domri for RG since Sarkhan isn't about to volunteer. Also, we haven't really been given much of his story. My upset pick for WB is Liliana instead of Kaya. It would make for some good television having Jace see his ex walk into a Guildpact meeting as the leader of the organized crime guild.

    Love this card. I wish they'd do a whole cycle of them for each guild.

    That name is fantastic. I just wished they hadn't wasted it on a card that will be forgotten after rotation. The card itself is fine for limited but had they shed one mana off the cost it would definitely see play in Pauper and the kitchen table for years to come.

    You have to be pretty mana screwed to want to use the elf's ability. And if you are in that position, you're not going to be happy about waiting a turn and sacrificing your next draw step considering you're probably playing from behind at that point.

    I expected that RW would get a reasonably powerful mythic creature that probably has no Modern applications at all and I wasn't disappointed.

    Hope is fading for something that I can use. She's a good card. Just not what I need.


    Did you want her to have haste too? She buffs a creature the turn she comes out then starts the beating the following turn.
    Haste would be nice, along with Double Strike, Menace and possibly Indestructible to push her over the top.

    To think there was once a time Dimir players considered their color combo to get shafted every set…
    Very true, I've been one of those people. However, I'm excited by what I've seen so far and I think Surveil is a great mechanic.

    These cards are all just the bees knees. Doom Whisperer will even compete for the 5-drop creature slot in Cube.

    Would it have killed them to make this 1B casting cost?

    What on earth are you complaining about? Are you surprised to see not very powerful cards at common revealed? Outrage, WotC prints cards that don't look constructed playable at common! Every single ******* set revealed is like this. If you are not okay with this, maybe you shouldn't be playing this game at all. Or, at least, you'll want to stop complaining about the symptoms of the 'problem'.
    Chillax. Take a deep breath. You're right, not every card needs be Thoughtseize. He's right, at that cost it's not great. It's ok to look at a card from a different angle than the person next to you. It's not ok to fly off the handle because you disagree with someone else's opinion.

    Does Invert last indefinitely or or just until EOT?

    I was thinking about how much more powerful these new guildmages are than the previous ones until I noticed the tap symbol :/ That really hurts later in the game when you have the mana to cast the card and activate the ability (potentially multiple times) in the same turn. Oh well, I certainly don't dislike these new versions. They still do cool stuff and give you multiple options.
