Quote from Xcric »if you can ramp them out easier, you can also run ways to protect them or buff them more easily. it frees up mana for your own counterspells, or your own give them all trample, or whatever you need to actually get there. its easy to say counterspell trumps all, but it really doesn't. if you can outrace them, or play more efficiently, you'll win. i'll take getting my tribe into play more easily over a lord any day because it frees up so much space for more advantage. you don't need 30 krakens to stick, they're huge, you just need like 2.
Quote from Mishotem »Geez, you're right. Thinking about it, I shouldn't play EDH at all because my opponent might have a deck full of counterspells to stop anything I could do. Since we're looking at the worst case scenario for a deck and all that.
Quote from Mishotem »What would you rather have as a sea monster lord, a creature that gives them a buff, or a creature that makes it easier to get them into play?
Quote from Mishotem »
Yeah, they're putting etched foils in regular boosters.
Quote from 5colors »These are also meant to replace the PW intro decks so seems about right power-level wise.
Quote from Narvuntien »The RC is a volunteer organisation in charge of a companies most valuable product. This is certainly going to lead to conflict soon or later. It seems to me that Dirk wanted this to be sooner. If the RC has banned these on principle, I am certain WotC would have just bulldozed through them and taken over the ban list (which we know didn't really go well for them on Magic online when they tried to make their own). All we have to do to help RC stay in charge is to not flip the format over some TWD cards (and this terrible business model)
Quote from Optidongus »You know a lot of this shade getting thrown at Wizards with this set is pretty funny. Yeah they are making some money and put together a great staple secret lair to fuel a charitable cause. So what? They also support an entire childrens hospital in Road Island and have done so for years. Most of you don't even come out of your parents basements long enough to hold a door open for someone.
Quote from Ritokure »Real missed opportunity to not have Tamiyo with her kids in one of the cards.
Quote from Spaz350 »Now I’m cautiously hoping for Pivlic, Fonn, and Crix as well. Maybe Teysa’s thrull triplets too.
Quote from Decadent_Creed »Yes, legally they have an obligation. But did you know some people do illegal things sometimes? No need to try to school people on the legality when it's already obvious.
Regardless of any agreement, when you promise something in a certain time frame and then postpone it, people will be disappointed and some will act in a less than ethical manner in response.
We already know it's breaking their contract or w/e. Obviously. This site has featured Magic leaks for many years. It's not our first rodeo.
Quote from K0olmini »Now after this whole walking dead fiasco it is clear they are making a lot of people unhappy.
