Quote from ultratog1028It's funny, because when designed, Solemn Simulacrum was UG. It was changed because Mirrodin.
It didn't have a name when I started. "Tempo" is a fairly recent term. The term didn't exist in pre-Zendikar as far as I'm aware.
Quote from Zoomsoldier5Well wildfire, if they do reprint it this year, then it would have to be this set because it is the last one this year. And do you think the price will go up because of it being in standard or down because of it being reprinted? Also, what do you mean by some form?
Quote from priminatorWhen casted from miracle at the proper time, it is incredibly powerful. However when hard-casted, it is under par to other sweepers and spells (regardless of it being a one-sided sweeper). It has become acustom that if you want to consitently see it hit the board, you need to play a 4-set. it's an extremely risky spell to play with, as alot of the time it becomes a dead card in hand never to be played, especially in aggro where the mana curves out at around 5. But these are the risks you take as a red mage. The last blocks of standard have not been doing much for red, the spell is needed for red mages.
I personally hate being bonfired, but I love casting it, as does anyone. I do not think it is overpowered, it just feels that way since competitive meta's are filled with them. I think after rotation when the meta changes, we may see some less of the bonfires.
Quote from aZn.FlipStar_650right now for my lands i have 24 total - 18 forests, 4 sunpetal grove, and 2 gavony township; they pump my creatures/make mana dorks more useful when i dont need mana.
Quote from herkamurjoneswow that is a good thought..and it can be a 3cmc if need be. dang, i should have thought of that. it can legend-rule too, which is relevant in some matchups. how many is the right number in most decks since its not green sun's zenith-able?
Quote from MichMashKeep in mind that WoTC doesn't really care for second-market value of specific cards (from an economic standpoint), even if those cards are staples for certain formats.
However, I could see a reprint of BoB, but he should be Mythic, right?
Quote from TormYeah, i mean i'm not saying top sucks, but I'm pretty sure i remember the explanation literally being 'because it makes games long'. You should have a big sticky locked thread that has that article in it, since it gets brought up so much :D. And it is a pretty huge problem in Legacy. Especially when countertop gets popular; you'll notice a LOT more 1-1 draws. I remember watching LSV talk about Legacy tournaments and he was saying how Legacy specifically needs longer match times, because of a lot of the things that happen, including Top.
