    Still utterly fails to explain why it wasn't in Modern Horizons like tons of people were asking for but ok.

    Man this is going to be an insane upgrade over Corpse Connoisseur in Sidisi.

    Well, I guess I at least don't have to worry about my LEDs ever being banned in any future where this exists.....

    and it is wotc's responsibility to give you an appreciating asset?


    For what it's worth, Wizards felt a similar need to do so in terms of implementing a certain list of cards. I don't want to belittle your argument, but this is what the game has ultimately become.

    I could care less about these cards or any of the other releases. I play Magic to play it, and when I enjoy a card enough to beautify it I either spend the money to do so or I ignore if I cannot afford it. Magic should be a hobby, not a stock market.

    I made sure to google it before I posted, and went with whatever version was highest on the page. Very scientific method.


    I've studied marine biology of invertebrates, specifically cephalopods, for over a decade now. But nice troll attempt.

    Does this card remind anyone else of Phyrexia? With the name, the ability, and the art?

    We now have 8 Octopuses in MTG, 9 if you count Unstable.


    *Octopodes.


    No.....it is most properly "octopuses." Unless you really want to utilize the Greek in place of the accepted English, "octopuses" is the most commonly accepted plural in cephalopod biology.

    MY BOI! Favorite MTG character of mine finally gets a card.

    He doesn't do what I expected (I was thinking something more like Bargain and Will on a very expensive stick), but this is actually more interesting in my opinion. Designing the deck for him has been really fun and interesting so far, and I think playing it will be even more so.

    I'm not saying people want to see it, I'm just saying this card has possible implications in a future deck of that nature.

    Do they seriously think we even look @ this when Lotus Bloom is around ?!


    I think the idea is that both this and Lotus Bloom will be played in the same deck. Or maybe a new slower "storm" variant.

    Eggs 2.0, anyone?

    This card could be one that I underestimate but it seems pretty bad to me. Seems like you'll be casting it more than pitching to it


    Agreed. If you're pitching for this card it seems like an increased action opposed to just picking your cards up and shuffling them.

    But hey, I've been wrong before and will be many times more.

    Quote from Patch8700 »

    Thousand Year Storm borrows from Storm, but is not Storm.

    Besides being slightly different functionally, if Storm was printed as a set mechanic it would do very different things to standard.


    I could be wrong, but I think the reference was towards Arclight Phoenix.

    Quote from MarkXero »
    I know this art is purely set advertising, and may well be a conflation of two separate pieces of art, but the way it seems to depicts a swirl of white magic from Liliana's hands looping round behind to Gideon's hand (or maybe from Gideon to Lili?) is what most makes me believe Planeswalker pairings might be a thing in this set. There's also something delicious for a WB card to have the W walker wielding the Blackblade while the B walker wields W magic.


    This theory actually works quite well the color-pairs of some Bolas aligned Planeswalkers: Gideon and Liliana team up on Kaya; Jace and Chandra take on Ral etc. Obviously Dovin isn't an enemy color combination, but something could potentially be worked out...especially with that new Planeswalker who was revealed.
