    That's a pretty major mistake for Walgreens.

    Pff, dude 'pulled' all five Energy lands and a full-art Elspeth. Either they were filched from higher up the supply chain or it's a WotC plant.


    Not to mention the way the cards are distributed doesn't make much sense. I agree, the Walgreens story is probably just a cover up.

    What you say is true. It would be nice to get some budget friendly fetch lands. Also a forum to talk and discuss deck designs for Pioneer would be great.


    That's the biggest disappointment from this announcement to me. With the banning of the fetchlands in Pioneer, I fear they'll never reprint the fetches in Standard again. I doubt they'll even reprint the slow fetches or finish their cycle with an enemy colored group. It's a god damn shame too. Slow fetches and Tango lands/Cycle lands in enemy colors would do a LOT to make decent enemy colored mana bases more viable in EDH and in other formats.

    I wish they would get over themselves and print the lands that need to be printed in the actual EDH products. Increase the amount of new cards a little bit and just add the lands that need to be added already. No precon deck that claims to be decent should have a manabase as bad as this years Jeskai deck ever again (it doesn't help that the deck itself is crappy too).

    Wicked Guardian seems good. I definitely think out of the two Pumkinmorph cards that Green got the better end of the bargain.

    You ever notice how, whenever a character of one gender is dominating a character of a different gender in the art, it's always a female dominating a male? Why don't we ever see the reverse? It's hard to call it equal representation when the representation isn't actually equal. Slant


    wouldn't want to cause another ***** storm ala Triumph of Ferocity is my best guess.

    Quote from foam_dome »
    So in order to reduce their environmental impact, they're going to replace all of their product packaging with paper-based stuff, which requires the harvesting of more trees...?

    Logic checks out

    Hopefully they'll find some other biodegradable alternative to paper, or they'll stick to recycled paper materials exclusively.


    Paper products are at least recyclable. A lot of cheap plastic just gets burned or blown into the ocean and can't be recycled anyways.

    I'm all for this change. This is the type of stuff I want to see more of.

    Did this really need an exile clause?

    So with Knights in WRB and Faeries in BUG, is this some kind of wedge tribal set?

    All this talk about underdressed men and overdressed women, and speculation of sexuality, and whether Wizards is sputtering and failing or succeeding masterfully... I just think the leather pants look dumb. Fashion faux pas.

    I mean, he's a fairy. Fairies are often underdressed. Who cares?


    The thing that irks me about this isn't that the guy is kind of under dressed. It's more how smug Wizards comes across when they take their stance of putting girls in non-revealing and even shapeless clothes online sometimes because those things are "bad" but they have guys in revealing outfits all the time. It's eyeroll inducing and hypocritical to me.

  • posted a message on {C19} Mystic intelect full deck list + command zone preview card - Elsha of the Infinite
    The question I come back to with this deck over and over is what the heck is going on with the mana base? Especially compared to the Sultai deck. This deck is literally all of the CITP lands they could fit in a deck and also Prairie Stream. Feels weak compared to what the others are packing; it doesn't even have nice utility lands like the Rakdos one does. Why are the mana bases so unbalanced?

    Pretty sure that's just a spam post based on how it's linking to some bs website.

    Huh. Not too shabby, in my opinion. Don't know if it's good enough to see play but

    A little disappointed that it's WUR and not RUG, and also a little disappointed that I could have guessed the abilities for most of them pretty randomly. The only thing that I didn't expect is the damage prevention clause, maybe there's a lot of symmetrical damage effects ala Rolling Temblor.

    Depending on how things pan out the R/B deck might be pretty fun. I have some hope for the Sultai deck as well, kinda cool that the commander gives you immediate value by providing you with a 2/2 body and a card for free when it comes down. The populate spell with a haste enabler could be strong against enough small creatures. We'll see with the WUR deck. I like spell based decks and doubling things, and I loved the burning vengeance decks of standard formats of old, so with the right cards I might get that anyways because I'm a big chump.

    Gotta admit, the thing I'm most disappointed by is the set symbol.
