    So, the black lady with a sword we saw a while back is apparently Kenrith's wife. Looking at Will and Rowan, then at their other two children, I'm going to guess she's his second wife, and not the twins' biological mother.


    Someone elsewhere who's apparently read the book said that a witch magically roofied him thus making her the twins mom. Which, if memory serves, is in line with Arthur's birth in myth.


    I think it depends on whether Kenrith is the Arthur stand-in or if one or both twins are. If you see the twins as the arthur stand in it's actually the opposite situation as Merlin transforms Uther to look like Lady Igraine's husband in order to be with her. It actually is kind of a neat twist as Rowan and Will'sbirth mother could be a Mother Gothel-esque character which blends the two nicely. I haven't had the chance to read the ebook yet, but I hope Kenrith is nicer than most depictions of Uther.

    I think it would be safer costing 2. I do really like the cycling attached to it.

  • posted a message on [ELD] four new food cards
    So I've thought of a really janky five card combo. Cauldron Familiar, Dross Scorpion, Chief of the Foundry, Witch's Oven, March of the Machines. You sacrifice the cat to the oven then your food which is now a creature gets sacrificed to bring back the cat and the scorpion will untap the oven when it sees the food die. The Chief of the Foundry is there because if I understand correctly the food token would die as a 0/0 before you can put the sac trigger on the stack. It's janky, but I think it works as a joke combo.

    One more version I've come up with lol.

    Oko 1UG
    Legendary Creature - Faerie Shapeshifter
    Spark Repression WUBRG
    Instant - Adventure
    Search your library for a planeswalker and exile it with a shape counter then shuffle your library.//
    You may have Oko enter the battlefield as a copy of any creature on the battlefield or any planeswalker exiled with a shape counter.
    2/2

    Theros 2- Pretty much confirms Elspeth returns, I'm guessing started by Gatewatch going to bury Gideon. Eldraine is comfired to not have any white planeswalkers so this might be how we get Elspeth and Ajani both in the set.

    Ikoria- Ooh sounds fun. The green mage in me want to see all the timmy and johnny monsters. Hopefully more dinosaurs too.

    Core 2020- This sounds good, Teferi history isn't the most well know by newer players (including me) so if they do an origins kinda deal with him it would be good to catch people up. I'm gonna guess flip Teferi since the 3 cards cycle this last set wouldn't work as well for Teferi.

    Zendikar 3- Ehhhhh. Never liked Zendikar much with Eldrazi without Eldrazi ect. Only think I like are the element-pals lands.

    Possible return walkers; Theros- Ajani, Elspeth, Ikoria- Kiora (I honesty though it was a set named after her at first), M20- Mono blue transform Teferi, mono green Garruk, Zendikar- Nissa, Wrenn?.

    Honestly I thought we'd be getting more of the Eldraine line as the Wiki hinted it's part of a new longer story arc post-Gatewatch.


    No creative has said the gatewatch are here to stay (hence why they added in new member Kaya in War). Eldraine just was the start of a new arc and we have a 4 walkers now who's stories now will likely link up with the gatewatch.


    Not to be a bum, but if they are going to do a transform Teferi he better be blue white. It bugs me that some of the planeswalker commanders can't play other versions of themselves like Teferi Temporal Archamage, Nissa, Nahiri, Daretti, and most likely an Ob Nixilis in the future lol. Unless you mean like a reverse sparker where they are a planeswalker that turns into a creature.


    My thought would be creature -> walker, creature isU and is Teferi as a student, walker side is(W/U) and his present day.


    I think that's very reasonable lol. I think they need to make more flip walkers they could do a cycle where they are mono colored on one side and hybrid on the other.

    Is Wishful Merfolk a sign that the Throne of Eldraine versions of fairy tales are always going to take the darkest turns possible?

    Witch's Cottage looks like a neato 1-of in BGx Midrange variants. It can't be that hard for Jund to get a basic Swamp, an Overgrown Tomb, and a Blood Crypt by the late midgame, for instance.

    nervous laughter

    It's looking pretty Grimm...


    Lol, If I remember the Hans Christin Anderson version of the tale when the prince got engaged with another woman she contemplated killing them both before deciding not to and turned to sea foam due to her broken heart so it's kinda similair.

    I've kind of gone back and forth on it. Because I think it would be cool on flavor to have him able to change form on the fly. Do you think that he should be focused on becoming one walker or just be an awesome superfriends commander? Maybe something similar to Mairsil, the Pretender.

    Oko 1UG
    Legendary Creature - Faerie Shapeshifter
    Oko enters the battlefield with three loyalty counters.
    WUBRG: Exile a planeswalker from your hand or graveyard with a shape counter. Oko becomes a copy of a planeswalker exiled with a shape counter and gains this ability and the Oko subtype.
    2/2

    I think this version is probably the cleanest version but goes with more of a superfriends build rather than an outlet to play a planeswalker as a commander.

    Both arts are amazing. The food token can also be exchanged for the creature too which is awesome.

    I guess everyone was both right and wrong at the same time lol. Everybody seemed to have the simic aspect down lol.

    Oko seems pretty Temur to me. a dislike of rules, destructive out of a desire to lash out at a system, a preference for the wild and uncivilized, and a penchant for mind magic and trickery. He uses his charisma and cunning to usurp orderliness and tradition.
    The most difficult colour to associate with him of the three is in fact not Red but Green.


    I understand your points but I would argue that his trickery borders on sadism and to me that seems more sultai than temur at least to me. And I think it would be really weird if he shared both of the twins colors.

    Your right maybe something like this.

    Oko 1UU
    If Oko is your commander search your library for a planeswalker at the beginning of the game and exile it with a shape counter.
    WUBRG: exile Oko and return him to the battle field as a copy of a planeswalker exiled with a shape counter.
    2/2

    I haven’t come across people playing morophan do most people keep to the tribe or are they mostly good stuff style decks?

    My guess is Sultai for his color identity, but both Fey and shapeshifters are pretty blue so at the very least I think he's blue.

  • posted a message on Wizards anounces Historic format coming to Arena
    I like the idea of them introducing past cards into arena. I was thinking of something earlier and thought it would have been cool to introduce Diregraf Captain Drogskol Captain and Stromkirk Captain for halloween. I think it would be cool if they still did introduce them because all three of the tribes have support in arena already.
