    What if we get another sweet generic land that fits everything?

    Snowy Winter's Plaza
    Snow Land - Gate
    When ~ EtB pay 2 life or it enters tapped.
    When ~ EtBs choose two basic land types, ~ is both those basic land types.

    I'm dead. This card is way better than FoN. Looks like a Force Cycle is going to bring some interesting life to Modern for awhile.

    I am interested in the Red one as it seems like it could be the most breaking and cause for Force of Negation to be more necessary.

    No changes is as expected.

    My pauper burn deck running Probe as false cards is not too happy though. I guess I'll be looking for replacements.

    They're not going to get sued for printing Snow Duals. I'm sure you're imagining Snow-Covered Badlands, but there are SO many more options. Could they not just be snow covered shocks? Boom done. What if they were snow check lands? Snow Fast lands?

    I know many are saying "duals" as a straight up term, but that's because they could be anything.

    I'm fairly certain that if they print Snow Duals the Flying Draw Snake is better than Strix. Needing 3 other snow permanents gives it Deathtouch the same time that Strix would have it but you get to play this a turn earlier and while holding up mana.

    Terramorphic Expanse that fetches untapped but costs 1 life.
    Thank you!

    While this looks like a cash grab, I think this is a wonderful option for budget players. I hope this puts a dent in Scalding Tarn and the like. This is a good nod to trying to spread out some of the value in the fetches. This will probably absorb a ton of value right off the bat though, it'll be interesting to see how this affects prices.

    Edit: I think I am realizing that this only fetches basics... Please ignore everything.

    Translation? Or is it just fetch for anything?

    If they print Snow Duals this is an incredible card. If not... I still think it's decent, but now I'm holding out for Counterspell at uncommon and Snow Duals. What a strange place to be.

    Well that was fast... Probably precludes Counterspell. I'm conflicted, but this is very likely just fine if not hardly playable. Not hitting creatures is a real issue. I'm speculating that Prohibit sees more play than the FoNz in the current meta.

    I'm on my backup prayer now; unconditional 2cmc Black creature exile.

    For those keeping score on Counterspell (me), sets dating back to Shadows over Innistrad all have either 3 or 4 counters except for two that had 2 and 5.

    I'm excited for Prohibit though, certainly a nice addition.

    I’m pretty sure if the BAB was some awesome highly relevant card to modern we would all bemoan the idea of having to figure out how to afford it. And if this was the only printing it would only be available in foil.

    Flusterstorm not being highly relevant to Modern makes it a great BAB, in my opinion. I hope this was chosen exactly for this reason and I hope that it shows how the community groaned over Nexus of Fate being a BAB.

    ... Still just hope though.

    Ktk's thoughts were interesting. I'm much more okay with something like Daze, so a Daze that can be cast T0 is probably(?) fine for me. I suppose I'm just afraid of what FoW would signal is okay to be in the format, but I don't think Daze is strong enough to send that same signal. I struggle with trying to group evaluate hypothetical cards though, it's such a sliding scale.

    Maybe I am overthinking FoW... Maybe not. At this point we're so close to spoilers that it's almost fruitless to have a back and forth about it because we might as well just wait a few days and see what they give us.

    I just doubt they give us both FoW and Counterspell in the same set.

    At the same time, they brought out a video about the top 5 cards NOT to include in Horizons, with #1 being Counterspell :p

    I disagree with them on Counterspell, but I like them exploring cards that are actually worth discussing (compared to that CFB article a while ago discussing why Sneak Attack would be bad for Modern - no *****). FoW is definitely the most controversial inclusion in the Horizons discussion and although I don't see it happen I also don't think FoW would be so bad for Modern.
    Sigh... For real? I just have no faith in their analysis if they're concerned about getting Lava Spike countered for UU compared to allowing control to tap out and still be "safe".

    On a totally separate note.

    What is your take on FoW?
    Personally, I think it's sort of silly to need a T0 counter in a T4 format. I also think it's sort of silly to need a free counter before we even attempt a 2cmc one. I can get the difference between using FoW vs fair and unfair decks; I've borrowed probably just under enough legacy decks to really grasp the concept fully, but I think I can grapple with it a bit.

    I really feel like they put Force of Will on that list just to make the video an edgy discussion topic. It's just frustrating to see the desire for a free counterspell when we don't even have actual Counterspell yet and the chance of them allowing both Force and Counterspell in at the same time seems abysmal to me.

    But my bias is pretty clear too, so take that as you will.

    I don't think Bob is drawing a card. It doesn't say "draw" on it.
