    Quote from Hakase
    Unnatural Predation is a pretty insane card.

    I expect it to steal games in draft and show up in janky poison decks; watch out, poison is coming to steal games at FMNs near you.


    it's funny, because it is 1/3 of a charm.

    It's been 12 pages, and no one has mentioned that the flavor text on this card is from "Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite"?

    Is this a mockup or are we seeing Hellraiser stuff?


    Cenobite is not just a term used in Hellraiser, it also refers to a type of monks.

    So consider it a multi-reference gag.

    I love that it's a mill card that is trying to be something else.

    4 mana for an artifact to do 6 cards is decently costed, and it sometimes helps if you use blue steal stuff, and have the ability to force some life lose and/or poison counter game.

    I'm not sure why there are so many random elements to the game that only decreases the element of skill.


    Point of Order, some skill can come from managing randomness, but the turn system is kinda crazy, and I don't like the entire everything multiplied by 10.

    I'd say it's basically a given that there will be white and red phyrexian aligned cards, but likely nothing with infect.

    The 5 or so Phyrexian leaders who get quotes makes it more likely.

    Also, I await a human Phyrexian to go with the elf one in the next two sets.

    Can't wait to see some white-alighned phyrexians.

    largly because it amuses me.

    the lack of red phyrexians in SoM made it better, because then it didn't make white the IMMUNE TO EVIL color.

    Myr..... don't count as either 3:

    has some tension with metal craft, but in the early/mid game, you will be throwing artifacts to kill stuff, and if you have any myr generation, it isn't that hard to get to metalcraft and keep it, even if some metal must be broken to broke creature face.

    i really like that sword of vengence is real.

    because damn, if it isn't elegant.

    and it brings up the references to Akroma outside of Onslaught block to 3.

    awesome.

    The knight is probably common.

    Quote from SSJ Alakazam
    Ah, I see how it is. Thank you for the quick response.

    But what happens if, instead, one of the three creatures my opponent has is tapped? Or has "~ can't block" Or has shadow?


    The "must block" effect does nothing.

    The Gorillas can't be blocked by only two creatures.

    Dang, the only one I would have gotten.

    Sweet as a trigger ally, not so good as one that's not.

    Part of me really wants to say that this is set on Ravnica. Are we sure that the place Jace mentioned was a plane?

    Also, I suspect that the Gorgon is the last sister of stone death.

    Can't wait to see what Steve's site will say about it. Steve is quickly becoming one of my favorite artists, if not for his skill, then certainly for his sense of humor.


    Oh, yeah, he's freakin' awesome.

    Seriously, does both official and parody MtG art. The Slave of Bolas parody art is pretty funny.

    (not sure if I'm allowed to attach those here Slant )


    That's awesome.

    Nice to know that Steve Argyle did the Snuff Out w/ Liliana.

    Not exactly sure the best way to deal with images and such, so I would have done the same as you.

    What exactly is meant by best creature?

    Clearly, a creature is best if a deck archetype wins off it or does something silly with it.

    But after cascade, War Monk is better, that that's kinda a given.

    Also, given that a deck could run both, I don't think it's a interesting statement.
