The End of an Era
  • posted a message on Survey(s) on mothership hint at anime-themed sets incoming?
    Quote from AnneJello »
    the survey ended with a LOT of questions about what anime I was familiar with and what elements from anime would seem appropriate in MTG- for example- "How appropriate are laser guns in MTG?"


    Honestly the trope part was way more filled with cyberpunk tropes than anime tropes. They probably are planning to make a cyberpunk set.
    (by the way many of the tropes listed, like terminators, cyborgs, body augmentation, holograms and so on were present on dominaria during the brothers war and the invasion saga. idk what to think. are they simply ignoring that part of the lore?)
    The anime question seemed more like a demographic info, it doesn't seem like there is a concrete project behind it

    Honestly there are designed cards and designed cards
    I don't think that this:
    boarding galleon 6
    artifact - vehicle
    When Boarding Galleon attacks, put 3 black pirate tokens 2/2 with menace tapped and attacking
    Crew 4
    0/5

    would not be nearly as bad as this:
    Unnatural Arcane Mastery UBR
    Enchantment
    tap an untapped wizard you control: put target exiled instant or sorcery you own to your graveyard

    there are really a lot of factor you have to consider for evaluating these kind of cards: which commander is boosting, which playstyle is boosting, how much is effective...

    very appropriate:
    Best Girl (when this creature enters the battlefield, it becomes the Best Girl and every other creature stop being the Best Girl.)

    even more appropriate than laser guns that, by the way, were already a thing in magic, right? Urza and his robots? Original Urza's rage?

    I like big bans!
    So what's more problematic at the moment, green or planeswalkers?

    Takara will surely be in because maro said she's his favourite "character without a card that should get a card"

  • posted a message on What to play in creature heavy meta?
    I don't understand your problem... aggro is basically the tamest archetype out there, so what is exactly your problem? which decks are you facing are too strong and why? your talk about tribal decks makes me think about edgar markov and ezuri
    and also what are you exactly playing?

    I don't understand why you are saying that your low curve is a problem and then you want to lower the curve even more. Just add some fatties?

    However the new commander still loses the ability to transfer its command when it changes zones.


    Darn, yeah, i completely mised this. Bummer. Well i guess it was fun while it lasted, but i don't think he will never work as i intended

    Is the cost to get it back always 2B?

    [quote from="ilovesaprolings »" url="/forums/magic-fundamentals/custom-card-creation/815079-a-really-weird-commander?comment=6"]That actually sound crazy and fun just for commander! XD
    It's not just an unusual and wacky circumstance, it flat out doesn't function within the rules. You literally have to house-rule the outcome. The ability to determine with certainty the outcome of any interaction of two cards is one of the greatest strengths of Magic.[/card]
    How so?
    Player A has Volrath as commander. He steals player B's Usbrelus.
    Player A activate Usbrelus, targeting his own... idk, mossbridge troll? Or another random creature player B owns.
    Mossbridge Troll becomes the new player A's commander
    Why you say it doesn't work?

    Quote from Anachronity »

    As a side note, being able to effectively blank spot removal as a tap ability with no cost is kinda crazy. But he is a 5-drop with unremarkable stats, so, 'eh'.

    Fair enough! Behold the new paragon of standards!

    Giorgiliano, Paragon of Standards 2WUR
    Legendary Creature - Human Soldier
    Vigilance
    t: put a flag counter on target creature you control. That creature becomes a Flagbearer.
    1WUR, t: put a flag counter on target creature . That creature becomes a Flagbearer.
    While an opponent is choosing targets as part of casting a spell they control or activating an ability they control, that player must choose at least one Flagbearer on the battlefield if able.
    2/4

    QThe reminder text is plainly wrong because partners are a thing. As-worded the ability the creature gains to then hand off commander-ness to other creatures goes away when it changes zones. Also both commander damage and commander tax are established to be connected to the individual physical card.

    Yeah that was me not reminding the exact text of the test card, i should have fixed it now.

    Quote from Anachronity »
    Perhaps the trickiest complication: your opponent could gain control of Usbrelus and use his ability. Then they would presumably transfer his commander-ness to one of their own creatures, which is all sorts of messy.[/card]
    That actually sound crazy and fun just for commander! XD

    [quote from="Anachronity »" url="/forums/magic-fundamentals/custom-card-creation/815079-a-really-weird-commander?comment=5"] As an additional note, a three-color creature with a utility ability that doesn't affect the battlefield or generate card advantage should be a lot stronger by current creature design. I would say a 3/4 Vigilance, Hexproof, Haste would be fine regardless of which version you use. (Hexproof in this case is fine because he's not a value engine creature.)

    Honestly i don't think anything similar to this will ever be printed... and probably it should be never printed. I just wanted to goof a little a makes people "wait... what?", so i didn't put too much brain behind their stats.


    Quote from Anachronity »
    Regarding Giorgiliano: creature types, which 'Flagbearer' currently is, no longer have inherent rules.

    Oh yeah i know, i have worded him that way exactly for the wtf effect. Not only he has a weird effect, he also brings a weird rule baggage with him.
    But it should probably be changed, given the existance of changelings

    Quote from Anachronity »
    Also worth noting: his own ability would also be required to target Flagbearers, which may or may not be intentional.

    Why so? Only opponents have to choose flagbearers

    Honestly i didn't put too much thought behind him, except choosing jeskai because black and green have both efficient creatures and efficient tutor for those creatures, so that would lead to repetitive gameplay.

    By the way, i added another one.

    inspired by one of the test card

    Usbrelus, the Coward King 1WUR
    Legendary Creature - Human Noble
    WUR, T: Target creature you own becomes you commander and gains this ability. Any other commanders you have are no longer your commander.(That creature starts with a commander tax of 0)
    2/2

    Giorgiliano, Paragon of Standards 2WUR
    Legendary Creature - Human Soldier
    t: put a flag counter on target creature. That creature becomes a Flagbearer (While an opponent is choosing targets as part of casting a spell they control or activating an ability they control, that player must choose at least one Flagbearer on the battlefield if able.)

    Quote from Ryperior74 »
    I think commander legends will do that again but difference is it’s Krosan Verge instead that’s probably the most request land to get a cycle from the commander players actually


    Honestly i'm hoping for enemy fetches
    Hey, a man can dream!
    Otherwise i think that the enemy tang lands or enemy battlebond lands are more likely than a verge cycle

    Quote from kandjy »
    On the other hand, the combo Atla Palani, Nest Tender + Mirror Entity seems fun to pull off... But it seems that the most common route for this deck is dinosaur tribe; and I unfortunately don't have many good dinos.


    I don't know why you should limit yourself to dinosaurs. You can surely run the good ones like Zetalpa, Etali, apex altisaur and polyraptor, but you can also put in good angels like Avacyn, Gisela, angelic arbiter, dragons like balefire dragon, Atarka and nesting dragon, wurm like worldspine wurm, eldrazi and plenty of other creatures like stonehoof chieftain, craterhoof behemoth, siege behemoth, Elesh Norn, archetype of endurance and so on. You can just build the mother of all the battlecruiser aggro decks.

    Animar looks way more cutthroat and combo oriented

    Quote from Marek14 »
    Perhaps regular boosters will have the same cards, but looking like normal Magic cards?


    Yeah that sounds so unrealistic, keep dreaming
