  • posted a message on [JMP] Tinybones, Trinket Thief and discard theme — Val & PL previews
    I'm torn between liking it because it's adorable and everyone will underestimate it, and disliking it because it gains no benefit whatsoever from making your opponents discard artifacts, which is a definite vibe I'm getting from the name.

    It also sounds like a great name for a kids cartoon character. Tinybones and his friend Jellybeans, stealing cookies and running around pretending to be rogues.

    I think painlands should replace ETBT duals in their entirety. At least you have the option of progressing your plans (at a cost) with them instead of staring gloomily at your tapped out lands.

    The life gain/life loss thing has been done to death - it's a lazy, safe, and boring mechanic that I wish they'd move on from.

    That being said, it's easier to get this online than Sanguine Bond, but it'll be much easier to remove as well. Too weak to be a commander in its own right, fine as part of the 99, though.

    White has better card draw than it does ramp, which is where WOTC needs to be focusing.

    It's an okay control piece, nothing amazing.

    I'm probably the only one interested in the new white walker, as he'll fit in just fine with my Soldier Tribal EDH deck.

    Why is the watermark Wan Shi Tong?

    Putting McKinnon art on a Judge Promo - WOTC, you are evil, evil people.

    The Teferi does look too good to be true - an ult that strong that takes only two turns or less (with Proliferate) to go off?

    Some pretty strong and iconic mythics so far in the set. That Teferi is going to make it into every blink deck, that's for sure. If it's real.

    It won't be Azusa - Green ramp is strong enough without throwing her into the mix. And she would just end up becoming a key piece that gets banned anyway.

    Could be Serra Ascendant - that's been printed in Core before.

    A card with thirty one different options? Must have something to do with keywords - there's no way the text box would allow for that level of complexity otherwise.
    The Urza's Saga-esque aura must be the embrace cycle, which means it'll have +2/+2 and a keyword, as well as something else for four mana.
    As far as Human Monks go, there's tons. All the Jeskai ones from Khans block as well as the Green ones from Kamigawa. It'd be interesting to get the Kamigawan monks instead - they have some pretty strong effects.

    Call me when they do Secret Lair: Slivers.


    You really want that? Humanoid, Day-Glo abominations that have no relation to what we think of as Slivers? Because that's what you're gonna get.

  • posted a message on Return to Innistrad in 2021?
    I hope we don't return. The original Innistrad block was iconic and powerful and now the whole plane and the lore of the place has been ruined, so there's no need to make it even worse than it is right now.

    In fact, I hope they don't have us return to any of the older planes. Just give us new planes like Ixalan, where you can just mash a bunch of random, disparate stuff together that people have been wanting.

  • posted a message on [IKO] Rielle, the Everwise
    Has anyone here ever played a spellslinger type commander deck? Do you think you would draw more or less hate depending on how you build with her as a commander? I'm sure she could be played as a Stax commander, but I'm more interested in the whole cast a bunch of stuff every turn aspect.

    What does the fox...bird...thing say?

    EDIT: I'm sitting here laughing my head off, imagining it making some really weird and unexpected sound.
