    Do we know what plane these are on? Whatever it is, I hope that's where the next set takes place, these lands look awesome.

    Wow, I feel like this was one of the most anticipated potential reprints. I wasn't sure they'd actually do it. What deck actually wants this, though? Cryptic Command is probably better most of the time.

    Is that an improved Astral Slide that has cycling itself? Because the original doesn't. (Astral Drift, maybe?) This one even seems to trigger on its own cycling ability!

    EDIT: Looks like that's a Kaladesh racecar in the art, too, and it's called Astral Drift...

    There are literally no cards that I'm excited to play in this deck from War of the Spark.

    Unfortunately, this was mostly my reaction. There are a few things that are worth trying, but it's pretty disappointing that the planeswalker set has nothing big to offer us.

    Nissa, Who Shakes the World: We're playing mostly forests, so her static ability is pretty strong. But if we're at 5 mana, we don't really care about having much more, and her other abilities don't have much synergy with the rest of the deck.

    Karn, the Great Creator: Okay, hear me out on this one. Yes, he has almost no interaction with our deck. But, we are playing Stony Silence in the board, so maybe it's worth playing one Karn over one Stony just so we can find him with Oath of Nissa. (That's generally a big downside of the sideboard is that it's all enchantments, which make Oath of Nissa worse.) And then we include one Mycosynth Lattice in the sideboard, so that Karn basically becomes and alternate win condition. Might be too crazy, but I'll probably test it.

    Karn's Bastion: Wow, now this is interesting. Unfortunately, it has to contend with Gavony Township, which is really good. It definitely allows you to put additional pressure on your opponent, but if you're sitting around proliferating onto your 3 planeswalkers every turn, you're already winning, whereas Township can actually save your life.

    Interplanar Beacon: Maybe worth playing as a 1-of. This card has a pretty small opportunity cost. Yes, it's totally redundant with Oath of Nissa, but it might be a good way to get an advantage against burn.

    Mobilized District: Again, has to contend with Gavony Township, and again, it gets better the more you're already winning. Shame it doesn't count legendary enchantments...

    Planewide Celebration: 7 mana is probably too much, but proliferating 4 times all but guarantees an ultimate. And Doubling Season gives you 8 Citizens. This actually might be the most interesting card from the set.

    Maybe there's a black version of this deck that runs Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God and Oath of Liliana and/or Oath of Kaya and The Elderspell. Can this deck support all 5 colors if we move it in a different direction? Can it support 4 colors with black being a main color if we take it in a totally new direction?

    Weird, so Gideon dies, and then is reborn on Theros? And not even in the creepy underworld of Theros?

    Okay, I guess that makes more sense than "Sarkhan Without Love"

    Sort of a budget Monastery Mentor? Definitely a powerful static ability, and I could see her in some kind of weird Affinity-ish build (with Opals and Baubles) but without being able to reuse ETB effects, she's definitely not overpowered.

    Wow, a Boros general that doesn't just care about combat! I mean, it does, but I'll be playing it for those sweet cantrip buybacks.

    Also, the type line says Angel, but it looks like some kinda weird bird thing.

    People were specifically requesting an Aven Eternal? Why?

    It's interesting, but is it better than The Immortal Sun? It's at least a good budget option. Seems absurd if you can cast it turn 3, but otherwise it's kind of a bad Lodestone Golem.

  • posted a message on Are the costs associated with a triggered ability part of the ability?
    My opponent has a Burning-Tree Vandal and I have Repudiate // Replicate. When my opponent attacks, is the decision to discard the card made on resolution, or does he have to discard the card when the condition is met (the attack) in order to put the ability on the stack? If I want to counter the ability with Repudiate, can I get my opponent to discard a card and get nothing back?

    Similiarly, if my opponent has two Burning-Tree Vandals, can he discard and draw with one of them, then decide whether to discard for the second one, possibly discarding the card he drew off the first?

    Card name isn't in Comic Sans. Flavor fail.

    Wow, that Vengeful Rebirth art is insane... I need to find some casual deck to play that just so I can use this version.

    Great reprint. Bad art. Bad upshift. Since it's player only it's not a great limited card so no reason to make uncommon.

    That might be exactly why they'd upshift it. You don't want limited pools flooded with cards that are bad in limited.

    It's always every excuse as to why they upshift. It's BS. Need to stop giving Wizards excuses. They upshifted Lightning Bolt. So you can't have it both ways.

    I think Lightning Bolt is probably too good at common for limited. Uncommons can be cards that are either too good or not good enough for limited, so I think I can have it both ways.
