Quote from flavioal28How cool would it be if we had full art lands in M14?
Full art lands ALWAYS work for me. Zendikar's lands, especially the forests, blew me away.
Quote from LeyartI wish they could bring Yawgmoth in.
Otherwise Lim Dul would be awesome
Quote from Krimson ViperI have some old foils, so I must interject and say I prefer old school foils because they don't bend.
Quote from theMarcAm I the only person who doesn't have a really strong opinion about which style of border is better?
Quote from euknemarchonThe point isn't what's "weird." The point is what's relatable in the fantasy repertoire while still triggering some dopamine from newness. Kithkin are essentially hobbits; Vedalken are essentially blue aliens; Moggs are essentially goblins/orcs, etc. WotC staff have publicly stated that in their view only a fraction of potential American MTG players have enough exposure to the Japanese fantasy/mythology repertoire to get the right balance.
Quote from HyzeKamigawa was reaaaaally heavy on Japanese culture. Lots of players didn't understand any of it. Yes, almost anybody could explain to you what a shuriken is, but I don't think someone could explain the words "Kodama", "Bunrei", or "Goryo" without looking in a book or the internet.
Quote from ShadyguyKamigawa was poorly received because it played badly. I don't think most people had an issue with the setting itself.
Quote from MOON-EIf you're going to do something that's not common, have a reason better than "I felt like it". Gilt-Leaf Seer made sense in context, none of your cards care about the top of your library, so it feels random (in addition to being out of color)
Like I said, do whatever you want, just don't pretend I'm being unreasonable for critiquing these cards based on normal standards.
Quote from Canadian Guy of WrathLorwyn and Kamigawa were poorly recieved blocks according to WotC market research as per MaRo
Polls on MTGS won't change that: people on here represent a very, very small minority of players.
From what I remember MaRo said Lorwyn wasn't considered "badass" enough while Kamigawa was too foreign for people alongside the "everything is legendary" annoyance.
Quote from MOON-EWell, I wanted to focus on the other, more significant issue, but we can talk about that if you want. Gilt-Leaf Seer is one of only 4 green cards...
Quote from mondu_the_fatNo, I simply quickly realized that talking to you would be like talking to a wall. A wall that doesn't want to be commented on or criticized, but rather likely just wanted pats on the back.
And, look at that, I was right.
Quote from OchimushaJust like it was confirmed that we weren't going back to Ravnica?
Quote from Canadian Guy of WrathConsidering how poorly Kamigawa was recieved it seems very unlikely we'll go back there anytime soon, same with Lorwyn/Shadowmoor
