Quote from AxeHow long is the cards' names finalized before a set is printed? I think it's fairly safe to assume that CON is already finalized, if not, very close.
At what point would "scissors" be in its development? Just curious.
Quote from NoMercyEverSo that's 4 multi-color editions in a row!
That's a record
The fact that the card "Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker" has Planeswalker on the title may indicate that it won't have the type planeswalker on it. Makes sense, at least.
nicol bloas is one of the most powerful planeswalkers in the story line and WAY to powerful to be printed on a card. the only reason he did have a card was because that card was printed before he was a planeswalker. i want to believe this is fake just because of that.
Quote from parinoid »I rolled 5 D6's and got 3 fours. They must have changed the odds of getting a 4!
Quote from heroicraptorThey could have Bolas have something like Hymn to Tourach instead of Mind Twist, saying that he's too arrogant to use his full power against mere mortals (neo-planeswalkers).
Quote from pandafarmer What a rough weekend for WOTC, considering how many people are griping about pre-release.
Quote from Jaxal1Yes, that's twice in this thread you've said that (with the exact same text, even). That is possible. However, 'pulling their punches' is never a good storyline reason for someone to suck.
WotC will likely use one of their other standbys:
1) Wrong place in the timestream (Jaya and the old Bolas both used this one, I believe, as well as printing young Ajani after old Ajani)
2) Planeswalkers were depowered after Future Sight (Every other Planeswalker printed)
Quote from heroicraptorWell, no one responded the first time, so...
Those standbys can work too, as we don't know when Lorwyn-Shadowmoor and Shards of Alara take place.
Quote from Floyd How do you think Mirrodin was made and sustained but obviously started to head down the path of Phyrexia.
Quote from LSKThis saddens me. I don't think there will be any legal action this time, but it's disappointing to have cardless names...
Quote from Jaxal1Mirrodin and Phyrexia are not the same. At all.
Quote from Horseshoe_HermitWho knows what "mjmj" is was supposed to be.

Flip a coin. If you win the flip, you
win the game. If you lose the flip,
you lose the game.
That should speed the game up... a lot... I hope it never comes to that.
Quote from Horseshoe_HermitSince (somehow) no one has said about the text file yet: We can infer that the text file was some sort of translation guide, possibly for a computer application. The file's name is "o_data_ej.txt", where the 'ej' clearly means English-Japanese.
Who knows what "mjmj" is was supposed to be.
Quote from FloydYou didn't understand what I said then. I didn't say they were the same. If you remember the story Karn's first project was Mirrodin. He left Phyrexia finished Mirrodin went back to Phyrexia, got locked out out Mirrodin by his own watcher Memnarch went back claimed the head of Urza and watched from outside his plane while Mirrodin slowly turned into what looked like Phyrexia. Until he was able to get back in after Memnarch's defeat.
And the card "Shard Convergence." What the deuce? Isn't that the same thing? And, isn't it odd for the entire calamitous happening which makes the set what it is in the plot, to be put on some single spell for our simple use?
Quote from FloydNacatl Hunt-Pride is most likely Nacatl War-Pride just mis translated.
