    That owl symbol looks terrible. And owls are actually quite dumb by bird standards, so it’s a weird choice. A crow or raven would have been a more sensible and cooler looking choice.

    What a silly thing. They just arbitrarily picked a starting point instead of applying an ounce of logic for the format.


    Any set you choose to be the start date is entirely arbitrary.


    Only if you consider the starting point of Modern to be entirely arbitrary as well.

    guys, stop complaining please.


    You know what you wrote makes me want to start complaining instead of stop

    Complain if you like, but he's right. This is all our (customer pool at large) fault.

    The entry barrier to our fun is increasing, limiting who can have fun with us. But this is just a continuation of existing trends.

    And actually, charging large dollars for functionally identical game pieces is so much better than chase-mythics and tournament-staple buy-a-boxen. So while WotC are undeniably wh0res, you can't really blame them for it. Blame the johns.


    So the business making the decision to price-gouge it’s customers bears no responsibility? It’s all on us, even though no one here has expressed any interest and even social media seems to be 100% against this product? Why shouldn’t we hold WotC’s lack of morals or respect for their customers against them?

    I already hate those Collector Booster because of their outrageous price, but this is even worse. The value just isn’t there but neither is the collector appeal. The binder is just a binder, the 3x3 sheet is a fraction of a collector’s item, the print isn’t even worth $10, the digital stuff is fluff and the Collector Boosters don’t justify the rest of the cost. Those boosters should cost $10 max, not $30. Those premium Alara boosters were like $8.99 and those were 15 foils.

    I think people are overhyping this card. Taking instants away from Red decks is a huge deal. And being limited to two spells a turn basically means one spell a turn since you’re going to have to burn one spell most turns to draw cards to get any real use out of this effect.

    I really wish this had flash. It would slot right into my Bant enchantments EDH deck if it did. Without flash it’s just a worse version of Estrid's Invocation that can also target artifacts.

    EDIT: Though I should note that targeting artifacts is great, I just don’t run any decks that that’s very relevant for.

    What a weird card. I’m glad that it’s an uncommon since they would normally waste a rare slot with a card like this.

    interesting that the royalty are females with feminine males, the knights are females, the nobles are females. Basically any masculine role is given to a female. What. the. ****.

    I think im going to quit playing this game. I cant stand this stupid ***** theyre doing. Its really dumb and doesnt make any sense not to mention its killing us as a society.


    Dude, shut up. Your pathetic insecurities have nothing to do with this FANTASY GAME and everything to do with your emotional problems and lack of intimacy with the opposite sex. Stop crapping up these threads with your deluded nonsense. If you’re so deadset on quitting Magic then do us all a favor and quit this forum as well.

    Strange that it’s not “X or less” to allow for more fairies.


    I was thinking the same thing, but I suppose they wanted to limit the number of tokens a blue deck can make. I'm thinking Risen Reef decks already ramp so hard. I don't know if I'm ready for that. Lol


    I guess they forgot when they made Oona.

    I love the art. An elf riding a giant fox is everything I never knew I wanted.

    How will they do a Godzilla set when the average creature should start around 10/10 at minimum?


    The monsters probably start small and get bigger with this “build your own monster” mechanic.

    I guess the big question is... will they be brave/stupid enough to stick the enemy fetches in Zendikar 3.0?
    I know MaRo likes to cringe about fetches in Standard, but they may well have cleared the decks well enough to enable this to happen, for all I know. Shrugs


    I’ll never understand the reticence for decent mana-fixing in Standard. Is being able to cast the spells you want to cast such a detriment to the format? And if fetches are so overwhelmingly powerful then why aren’t they banned in any applicable format? Only Standard is allergic to proper mana bases?

    Bestow had potential. Development just overcosted it all to oblivion


    This. The best Bestow card was just decent. I have no idea why they felt Bestow was so powerful that it needed to cost as much as two creatures.
