    Wow that’s unbelievable tolarian community college didn’t get a preview card unless they forgot to add him to the list

    But heck yes Mitch from commander quarters gets the first ever preview card he’s offical on the radar of wizards



    Probably because he maybe said something negative or even just constructive criticism about Wizards hehe.

    As long as it doesn't get banned in modern I'm cool. The heliod combo isn't really doing much there, so I think it should be safe. Wizard's last modern ban does show that nothing's sacred so who the **** knows what they'll do.
    It just seems like modern players are generally showing a massive lack of faith in the format.

    I'm going to do a legit table flip if Ballista gets banned........
    I feel you. It's Heliod's fault, not Ballista. Create a problem and not deal with the problem, find a scapegoat. It's the way things go now.


    Scapegoat = the old card people aren't buying boosters to get anymore.

    Do people prefer box toppers or master pieces randomly scattered in the actual packs?

    I just knew I was going to hate this entire plane

    Why, because it's not Theros?

    'buster

    In part. But I also don’t like that it appears to be a plane of essentially Simic creations. I prefer more recognizable creatures. I also can’t stand Viven Reid. Let alone my harsher analysis of sets that follow Theros.

    It’s a good thing though. Not every set is for everyone and I’m looking forward to Zendikar and Commander products instead. So it’s not wallet fatigue for me.


    Simic creatures are amphibious like as you can see this is not a water plane and the Ikoria creatures don’t look amphibious


    I see is
    Dragons
    Beast
    Ape/monkeys
    And possibly dinosaurs

    Is what I see so far


    Pretty sure he means Simic in the sense that it's two or three things plastered together, not necessarily just amphibious stuff.

    I for one don't really like what I'm seeing so far since it kinda looks like Zendikar without Eldrazi, but I love the idea of a kaiju set.
    This is actually how I was expecting Zendikar without Eldrazi to look like. It's the "Adventure plane" and this looks like Vivien going off on an adventure. I'm wondering what's in store for the actual new Zendikar set then.

    Not a massive fan of them, especially due to the rate in which they're coming at. But most of all, it's really ******* expensive for a couple of cards if you live in Europe.

    Cool art on a lot of them though. Especially the snow lands. To bad you're ****ed if you want more than one of each hehe.

    The art on that Aether Vial is sick! I prefer this Cryptic art too, looks cool.

    I'm always more of a proponent of trying to beat something rather than banning everything, but that's just me.


    I agree and it's definitely not just you Smile

    "But they're a company are you saying they can't make money???? lol why are you so stupid??" Of course they can earn money, but you can earn money and still have a brain, some form of integrity and trustworthiness.
    This is ******* ridiculous.


    They do have integrity and trustworthiness! For their stockholders.


    Exactly hehe

    I agree Urza should have been banned instead of Opal, it just going to keep getting better with any relevant artifact and will be broke again in a few months.

    As for lattice, the problem I see with this ban is the inconsistency, if they don't like strategies that turn magic into solitaire they should ban other unfun cards as blood moon.

    Something I would like to see is a Mox for only colored spells, that artifact decks can't use, specially designed to give speed to "fair" decks trying to catch up. Maybe like chrome mox but with some limitations on the use of its mana.


    Lattice also wasn't good in every match, especially against stuff like burn and other decks of similar speed and aggression. Yeah it was really strong, but it wasn't broken and isn't that the ******* idea of playing modern? having access to really strong cards? It's ******* lame.

    Oko is genuinely unfun in commander. Even gets around indestructible. Any good card will have 3 opponents against it. Prophet of Kruphix for example; so it’s not a valid reason. Oko isn’t even tolerable in commander of all formats. It’s just very poor design that I find highly astounding slipped passed play testing, regardless of what excuses they’ve made for it. Just ban it across the board. Even as someone who loves Simic and shirtless men I can’t stand the design of that card to even use it myself. It just feels cheap.

    I feel like Ballista is more likely to get the ban than Heliod. It’s a matter of time. No way that combo is surviving. Heliod will just have to stand out for his intended design, not a combo like that. He’s a well designed white card.


    I'm going to get pissed if they ban Ballista too. It's my favourite card.
    These bannings, other than Oko, are ridiculous and completely miss the mark. Like back when they banned Bridge From Below instead of the big hoe this summer. Incompetent.

    My guess is they're going to wait until they've sold a sufficient amount of Theros packs and then ban ballista. It's all about the mnoney for them. "But they're a company are you saying they can't make money???? lol why are you so stupid??" Of course they can earn money, but you can earn money and still have a brain, some form of integrity and trustworthiness.
    This is ******* ridiculous.
