    It is an exciting moment on Yakulea, where the Thirteen Pillar-Priests and the Trackers of the Rivenhall have finally come to an understanding and all forms of magic can freely be used once again. Innovation thrives and new mage-schools are opened every day even as the most ancient spells too are rediscovered and the plane hums with mana... strangely, more mana than it ever seemed to have before the ceasefires...

    3/2

    Time spares no one, and all people do crumbles to the ground. Larger half of Inkh world is ruled by the Lifebringer, but not everyone is okay with this - and as we all know, there is no king that can rule forever, so the scheming against Inkh overlord and savior is inevitable - that's just how Inkh folks nature is. However, there is still a chance to save the world and prevent it from becoming Dust in the Wind.

    Plunderer of Worlds, who turned out to be Moiza Nikhon, cunning merchant planeswalker from Gaata, keeps preying on conflict between Bajig Archduchy and Republic of Hazba on Hazunda. In his greed, he unleashes more and more explosive secrets that were prohibited on Gaata and other militarized worlds long ago, which leads to more and more casualties and devastation. What can stop him if both sides of conflict are too blinded by hate so they can't see the bitter end for all living beings in the poor world?

    They don't really want to cross the "streams" so to speak, they only did the guildmaster's guide to Ravnica because people has been bugging them for a D&D campaignsetting based on MTG for nearly over decade.

    That said, it is far from impossible.

    Speaking of which, MaRo explicitly said there will be a brand new world they tried to make for over a decade...

    the most disgusting example of power creep


    Isn't that a bit over the top wave of vitriolic?


    Though I appreciate the jest, no it isnt.
    Of all the vanilla keywords, flying AND haste are far above the rest in value. Haste even more so than flying. Haste because it for all intents and purposes makes a creature cost 1 mana less, and flying because its the best form of evasion (unblockable is not really a vanilla keyword).
    This is something R&D very well knows, and having either of the keywords will affect the CMC AND the rarity.

    There have been 3 2/2 fliers printed for 2 cmc WITHOUT any drawback in the history of magic.
    Gaea's Skyfolk is green and only has flying.
    Azorius First-Wing pretty much is a 2/2 flier for all intents and purposes.
    Sky Terror now this is the only card with multiple keywords AND printed very recently. However it has flying AND menace, which can almost read unblockable but not quite yet. They are 2 keywords that make eachother relatively redundant so to speak.

    Now Goblin Guide is still a mainstay card in modern and even sees some fringe play in legacy goblins. It is THE de-facto card of how much creatures should cost. Even though the down-side is quite substantial if your opponent hits, the power of a 2/2 haste for 1 is so high, its downside doesnt matter.
    There have been 0 cards that come even close to GG, aside from Monastery Swiftspear which is honestly a mistake on its own, but at least scales with the powerlevel of a format.

    This is just pure and simple Powercreep, and not on a small scale.
    Its the same as printing a 1 cmc watchwolf without drawback. It sets precedent for all other cards

    Technically speaking, Jhessian Infiltrator also does the same.

    What bothers me the most is the fact that UR has more efficent creature than RW when Blue is supposed to have weaker creatures.
