    Chandra's Spellbook seems fine.

    Secret Lair Enemy Fetchlands on the otherhand, that's such a disgusting cashgrab move from WotC, but this is the WotC of the last couple years so I am not entirely surprised. At least they didn't completely bone LGSes on this one this time.

    You know you’re on Theros when I celebrate red cards. Damn I love this set


    We get it, you like Theros, you don't have to tell us over and over.

    Anyways, card feels like a really inelegant way to justify it as an enchantment because "Theros gotta do enchantments", but there's at least some upsides to doing it this way. It's not Yawgmoth's Will, but it's not bad.

    posted a message on Wizards really does like to waste plot threads don't they?
    They rushed through the Eldrazi, to the point that they shoe-horned Emrakul into Innistrad just so they could wrap it up as quickly as they could. Then the next several blocks basically focused solely on the Bolas arc so that they could get that done with and while for the most part they handled it alright, it was still over pretty quick for something that they had been building up more or less since what, Alara? Now we have Garruk's curse, the hunter of planeswalkers, he completely misses an all you can eat buffet of walkers back on Ravnica and we finally get him back and...they cure him, just like that. Did they ever really do anything with his curse or his newfound lust for planeswalker blood? No, not really, that would involve some effort and long-term story telling and actual stakes and consequences. Instead they just *poof* cure him amd we're done with it.

    What a waste.

    And just like that we have another completely wasted plot thread. I swear, Wizards just does not know what to do with their stories anymore. The cursed Garruk/planeswalker hunter plot went absolutely nowhere and accomplished nothing, it feels like they just used this as an opportunity to quickly handwave it away and be done with it, just like they rushed through the Eldrazi. Even Bolas came off somewhat rushed going into the end of it, though it was handled mostly better all the same.

    posted a message on [C19] - Faceless Menace Full Deck Reveal!
    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.

    Quote from LeoninKha »
    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.

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