Quote from LuminousThis.
FOW is the glue that holds Legacy together, it gives you a way to stop unfair decks turn 1/2; at the cost of card advantage and 1 life.
Quote from PolskiYes, the Modern card pool needs a few extra things to make it more balanced in this sense, but the current methods used to balance the format are poor ones.
Quote from Horseshoe_HermitIt's nice to see debate on modern and legacy. Too bad I can't participate.
An update to one of my designs; Unexpectedly Absent is the parametric Long-Term Plans effect.
As long as you control a legendary permanent, if you would draw a card, instead you may skip that draw. If you do, choose a legendary permanent you control and search your library for a card. Shuffle your library, then put that card into your library just beneath the top X cards of it, where X is the number of other permanents you control that share a card type with that permanent. Then put the top card of your library into your hand.
It signals not the call to action, but the surrender of arms, the final concession of the world's will.
It's a dumb card I must say. Heroes' Podium is much better. I'm still mad I didn't submit that other card from the post to YMTC4.
Quote from LordRewindI am blown away by how civil this discussion has been.
That said, im in the process of transitioning an old merfolk deck over to modern just so i can enjoy games with newer players without feeling like im whipping out a bazooka to hunt rabbits.
Quote from PolskiHeroes' Podium is just a watered down Captain Sisay. Better? Maybe, but less interesting.
Quote from Warrior57Peregrination was the biggest surprise for me. Explosive Vegetation was a great card to play with, this reprint even adds scry to the mana ramp!
I really believe this is playable, especially in todays format - where counters are more or less extinct.
Quote from Son of SkullferI'm surprised they didn't just reprint Gorgon Flail. While the severed head is awesome, a creature wielding said head seems off flavorwise. "Who needs a sword or an axe? I've got this head right here."
Quote from 9909Chromanticore is surprisingly fine. Like everyone else, I was expecting this to unplayable because it is not great and it really does not work with other cards (what with devotion and everything); however, it has been shown that it is better than it seems.
