    it's probably some kind of gimmick like OMG ITS ALL RARES FROM ALL OF MAGIC! except they're all cards like charmbreaker devils and mana short then they include a mana crypt with new art to maximize fomo and gambling aspects at a premium price


    Sounds depressingly realistic and likely.

    You ever notice how, whenever a character of one gender is dominating a character of a different gender in the art, it's always a female dominating a male? Why don't we ever see the reverse? It's hard to call it equal representation when the representation isn't actually equal. Slant


    Mate, you know exactly why it's like that hehe

    Same with all pump spells where a creature gets +2/+2 and first strike. Always that way.

    Banning looting was a mistake and I don't even play decks that use it.

    They'll be coming for my tron cards next.

    Quote from leslak »
    I lately noticed that Stirring Address likely takes place on Eldraine. Wizards likes to do that sort of thing. It's possible the queen they're referring to is Queen Marchesa, but she's not super into justice and the background doesn't suggest Fiora. I can't really think of another queen they'd be referring to, but I'm not big into the story. Just a thought.


    Maybe they are refering to Queen Arthenia. Jokes aside i could see it happening. Maybe the plane is all about people getting their own Excalibur and some gain special swords and become kings and/or queens or they gain the right to fight for one of the corts or the main Throne.



    I don't know about you guys, but all I can think of when I look at that art is R E S P E C T!!! Smile

    I'm glad I finally switched to Modern recently and I'm especially glad that my local game store's meta is pretty good, not too hardcore and lots of fun. Many different styles of decks and homebrew. It's awesome having access to so many cards and play against so many different styles of decks after coming from playing standard the last two years.
    I'm really enjoying it, but the most hardcore level I get to is FNM hehe.

    I agree with most of your sentiments OP. I'm pretty tired of all the "alpha nerds" in Magic.

    I'm confused about how y'all distracted by the pretty picture and the ultimate because this card is damn awful.

    1) It starts with 2 loyalty, which means the ONLY thing you can do is tick it up.
    2) That first ability effectively does nothing.
    3) In order to activate the second ability (making it make a 4/4 flyer), it takes two turns. And a 4/4 flying token on turn 4 is pretty much on par with the curve. Which is to say, nearly unplayable unless it does something else.
    4) Why on earth would you play this over Narset, which impacts the board immediately and generates card advantage???

    Seriously guys, this is unplayable chaff, just like the 3 mana Jace. Too bad cuz the art is great on it.


    Don't talk ***** about my new waifu!!! I guess there's a reason you're The n00b King if you don't know cards with pretty art are better!! hehe Smile

    Now Altar of dementia is both new (people haven't necessarily picked it up in paper yet) and is an enabler that allows this deck to backdoor into a 2nd strategy. It is what enables this level of fast crazy in the deck and dodges interaction. Removing this would also force the deck to run more dredgers and be more a dredge iterations than this milling monster that beats you to death with x 2/2.

    For me alter should be the card to go.


    yeah. I also think the mill is the problem. Giving a second win con that's hard to deal with to an already powerful deck. I mean not many people play mill in modern? People are unprepared for this angle of attack.

    May I ask, when is the next ban announcement? thanks.
