    I see you being cute with the flavor text, Wizards of the Coast.


    It's a time travel reference.

    Always felt like this was going to be one of the more lackluster decks of this set. Morph is just not that interesting and is poorly supported despite having an entire block, for some reason, dedicated to it and its sister mechanics. The most interesting take on the mechanic (manifest) was completely wasted by not letting you flip over and cast the manifested instants and sorceries. Megamorph was not only the name of a Yugioh card, but literally the dumbest and least interesting direction to go with the mechanic. Individually, morph doesn't work well with a regular playgroup outside of a few specific cards simply because Willbender stops being a good trick after everyone knows you only run the one morph card. They did a pretty piss poor job of making people want to run morph and the much requested morph deck didn't fix the issues for those that did. The crap reprints don't help either.

    I'm still really annoyed they never went ahead and did allied colored decks.

    Is that Special frame bitter blossom confirm the return of tribal (card sub-type)?

    That's just the Ultimate Masters Bitterblossom.

    Fix Mana-Screw and Mana Flood for once... its been 25 years already. Dont tell me you can't come up with a solution. L5R made it look easy.


    It's an intentional part of the game's design.

    I love how this basically reads as "it took us over a decade to realize how easy it was to cheat Iona into play."

    She was long, long overdue for a ban and if her high cmc was seriously the only thing stopping her from getting axed for all this time I really have to question how much they really know about the game outside their bubble.

    Gargos being monogreen is such a letdown and really makes little sense if they wanted to push him as the new face of hydra tribal decks, other than that though he is an impressive card. Big body with great abilities and undercosted to boot.

    Blue cavalier is arguably the best of that cycle as well. Natch.

    Can we have Garruk back or is he not diverse enough?

    if you need them to compete at a high level, you'll get them. most people don't compete at a high level, and those that do really have no trouble getting the majority of these things. [/quote]

    So what you're saying is, there is no point in them being rare or expensive because to the people that need them they already aren't rare or expensive.

    Card is a complete flavor fail though.

    You awaken Marit Lage by...freezing her more? What?

    It should require you have X number of snow permanents to cast, and then you sacrifice it and make the token when you do not control any other snow permanents. Granted, completely different card at that point, but it works better flavor-wise.

  • posted a message on where to go for rumors after this site closes
    Just reposting what I commented on the announcement:

    I remember when I first got back into Magic, was a bit before Innistrad, finding my way to this community and just getting so into everything and discussing things, posting and sharing deck lists (some good, some bad), having a blast on the commander forums especially as that more and more became my favorite format. This quickly became one of my go to sites for just wasting hours of my time. I've grown distant from the game and community over the last couple of years for a combination of reasons, but even still there's a special place in my heart for it all.

    So yeah, this announcement definitely hurts, it's like a huge part of my adult life is sorta dying, damn near a decade of it at that. It's also closing the day before my 29th birthday so..yeah, that really rubs the salt in.

    I've seen this place both through good times and bad, and even if aspects of the community or other things sorta pushed me away, I am genuinely saddened by this news and will cherish the memories I have. Thanks for the ride.

    Big missed opportunity not calling this Llanowar Elf.

  • posted a message on MPL weekly stream preview card - Sword of sinew and Steel (Rakdos sword)
    So we get a second sword (after War and Peace) that can completely whiff. The protections are semi-relevant I suppose, but this is definitely a step down from the power level of previous swords. Even the other one we've seen for this set is better. Pretty let down, awful name too.
