    Well this will be my last response to you broheim.

    You still don't seem to understand the fact that WHEN THE BLOCK WAS ACTUALLY IN ROTATION, people would come across names they could not say, proceed to say them in some asian accent and then mass asian bashing would begin. This happened frequently, almost everywhere I drafted this block.

    The set was racist because it overemphasized all this asian culture stuff and people felt compelled to make fun of it. Just because EDH guys love samurai's and ninja's now does not mean that people who actually drafted the block thought the same way.

    If you don't understand that making an asian block can (and did) result in racism when its exposed to the super mature magic crowd, then I simply can't help you.


    So if some white people hear rap music and start saying racist things about black people, does that make rap music racist against black people?
    Do you see why your logic is not logical at all?

    How Freudian.


    So you're calling me racist? How mature.

    Quote from LordOwlingtonIII
    But the block was racist: In Kamigawa, ALL the foxes are white. ALL the rats are Black, ALL the snakes are green, ALL the moonfolk were blue, and ALL the goblins were red!


    So it's racist against fictional creatures and wildlife?

    Did I mention how this is objectively stupid?

    The block was racist. Straight up, in many cases, obviously so.

    It overplayed asian stereotypes, and many people felt like it was poking fun at asian culture. Along with the unpronounceable names, the block encouraged more racist discussions at draft tables/LGSs then any other magic block I have ever drafted, not close. My LGS store owner had to tell people to tone it down multiple times throughout this block because the discussions got so bad.


    So the cards were racist because some of the people playing the game were racist? And what Asian stereotypes or aspects of Asian culture were being made fun of? Ninjas and samurai were prominent and celebrated in the block, not lampooned. And those are aspects of Japanese culture that are still popular and celebrated to this day. So where id the racism? Unpronounceable names? How is that unique to Kamigawa? And how is it racist? Are Tolkien novels racist to Nordic and Celtic culture because the names in his novels are unpronounceable?

    Seriously, calling that black racist is objectively stupid.

    Or gain any life.


    You're right. For some reason that didn't occur to me. Crazy. A w/b deck in standard using this combo will surely be a threat to most decks.

    Anywhere but Kamigawa.The only people who liked that block when it was around were the anime fanboys.


    I don't watch anime but I still thought it was a fun and interesting block. Do you think maybe you're imposing your opinion on everyone else?

    Quote from Galgamation
    Some people also found it to be pretty racist.


    That's stupid. Seriously frakkin' stupid.

    Dominaria. But I want each set to reboot Arabian Nights, Antiquities, and Legends. I'm not asking for reprints, but a revisitation of the first 3 expansions.

    Nostalgia overload.


    Arabian Nights isn't set on Dominaria. It's based on actual literature and is,essentially, set on a fantastical version of Earth.

    I don't really want a huge cataclysmic storyline with lots of famous people. I just want to see the various cultures, traditions, magical practices and locations of that Dominarian type of fantasy realm participating in day to day trials of common life.


    A block set on a new continent of Dominaria that was untouched by the invasion and the Mirari could fit the bill. But so could a return to Lorwyn. Grin

    Wow, Dominaria is the overwhelming favorite. It's good to see newer players can appreciate the older sets. Of course, old fogeys like me who have been around since before Dominaria know that home is where the heart is.:tongue:

    I would also love to go back to Dominaria. The Onslaught block was the last time we saw Dominaria, correct? A whole lot could have happened since then. I love elves, Avens, Kavu and slivers and having them in one set/block is great.

    ...but I want to revisit Lorwyn more than anything. I love the Lorwyn/Shadowmoor block/s SOOOO much.

    I'm sure some of us just want new planes to visit, but surely everyone has a plane that is near and dear to their heart? Or maybe there's a plane that you just feel was interesting enough to warrant a revisit?
    Any plane, what would it be and why?

    Hypersonic Dragon+Niv-Mizzet+Stolen Identity seems like a great combo to me. You can potentially have 4 Hypersonic Drakes and Niv-Mizzet attacking on turn 7 after dealing 3 damage directly and drawing 3 cards.

    Wait... I just figured out the weird wording of Stolen Idenity's Cipher mechanic...
