    It may just be wishful thinking, but does anyone think this will lower the prices of regular FoWs?

    Although I am all for the reprinting of the expensive cards for legacy like Force of Will and Wasteland, I would also be really okay if they reprinted some of the less-expensive cards with the new card frame and new art like Stifle and Nimble Mongoose. Either way I am super stoked for this set, I've been getting more into limited and EDH recently, and I expect some good stuff for both of those formats in this set.

    Latest tweet translates into Nineteen. So we have Twenty, and Nineteen.

    EDIT: Latest tweet was tweeted 20 minutes after the TWENTY tweet, maybe its a countdown?

    edit: OK, so I deciphered it with the article code:

    "Huh? Is that what you need? A little more? Well, you're in luck..."


    Nice! And just when I thought I was going to have a relaxing night they start throwing out more coded stuff haha.

    What if he is...

    +1: Target player draws three cards and then discards two cards

    -2: Gain control of target permanent

    -6: You get an emblem with "whenever a player casts a spell that targets a permanent you control, you may choose a new target for that spell."


    I don't know about the -2, that's really powerful, my guess is gain control of target artifact/enchantment. The ult on him fits flavor well with reverberate/fork and redirect though.

    I tried following what k0lj0 did to get to the image (as well as to see what else was in the files for myself), but I'm an idiot and don't know how to change file types. I tried opening the 1.txt file in a simple Quicktime image viewer, and got this:
    Wait wait wait. I want to know why you both didn't get the same result. k0lj0 is a new account and could very easily be part of the conspiracy as far as I'm concerned, albeit pointing us in a direction.


    I did too. I followed what k0lj0 did, got the 'fragmented' image when opening in window's photo viewer, then opened the file in VLC after Stapler said quicktime, and I got the same image He/She posted. I'm currently trying different file types because It looks like the text in the txt file may be masking the full image.

    The "Secrets, like coins..." sounds like flavor text to me.


    Thought that too, couldn't find anything on gatherer matching that flavor text though.

    I've opened the picture from this https://twitter.com/Elavals/status/456584276574625793 in Winrar and found a text file inside it

    001 1101 101 00 101 001 00 0110 1001 010 110 010 0000 0100 0001 110 1010 01 0000 11 00 001 1

    Yzaaxai, iobk xmrgz, qok vgnw ch zjbgc.

    Also here's the text file https://www.dropbox.com/s/ho9y4u7w5af14sk/001 0010 1011 0000 0110 111 001 111 101 001 001 010 1010 1000 11 0000 0000 1101.rtf
    If those numbers are Morse code (0=. 1=-), it results in "UQKIKUIPXRGRHLVGCAHMIUT". Unsure if relevant...

    EDIT: Noticed the filename had different numbers though it began with the same sequence. Filename would be "UFYHPOUOKUURCBMHHQ"

    EDIT2: Filename decodes to "OKAYWHEREDOWESTART" (article password).


    Great work!

    So far we have "OKAYWHEREDOWESTART" and "Secrets, like coins, are easy to steal" and a fragment of the Dack Fayden card.

    Now seriously, where do we start to find the other fragments?

    Does anyone have any thoughts on when we will start getting spoilers? I didn't pay attention to when we started getting spoilers for MMA last year, and a quick google search didn't help me much.


    Gonna be mid to late May most likely. Most sets get spoilers between 2 and 4 weeks out from release. This is a 200+ card set, I think we can safely assume it will be at least 3 weeks out. Best guess then is around May 19th.


    Starting the spoilers right after the Pro Tour is good timing as well. I wonder if they will slip some in with the announcement of Huey.

  • posted a message on [Single Card Discussion] Modern SCD of the Day 8/18 - Figure of Destiny
    I recently put one in my Boros deck as a 1 of, and the one game I got him out after running out of steam he won me the game. I was very happy to be able to get a 8/8 flyer out of a deck comprised of small 1 drops.

    That being said, I probably wouldn't run more than one of him just because he doesn't really lend himself to a quick game, which is what i'm going for. I may run a second in the side incase I play against a deck that makes my deck slower than normal.

    I'd give him a 3/5.

    I wouldn't mind picking up tron, I saw it in action for the first time this past friday at a tourney and it seemed like hella fun. Also, its super cheap, which is nice.

  • posted a message on [[Official]] Are there any players/places to play in ______ ?
    I'll second (or third or fourth) Supergames. The tournaments they have there are great, and the people there are typically very nice and funny. The staff is nice and they work hard. I was just up there monday (not to draft, just playing with a friend and getting some nice textless searing blaze) and had a very pleasant time. There are also some decent food options around there, and they have snacks and drinks for sale for 50/75 cents each.

    From what I can tell their prices are great, being around the mid-price on TCGplayer.com and they have a great way of ordering large numbers of cards in shop through their website that they have open on a community computer. They also have tons of space to play, some benches in the front if you smoke, and lots of parking.

    RW utility land - First Strike and +1/+0 - 1WR
    UR utility land - Draw two cards, then discard two cards - RU
    I have no idea for the UG land, maybe a self milling type of thing?
