  • posted a message on Commander legends Leak...the Precon decks and the 3 new cards and 2 reprints in each
    I don't give a motha fawk about a triple post that Kraken of the Abyss is the perfect name for a sea monster and I absolutely ADORE the bioluminescence effect on a sea monster FINALLY which I have been longing to see. I love the art on it damn it, don't even care about its effect, what a perfect depiction of what I want my deck to represent. I adore this freaking card. Can you imagine returning Nykthos or Cradle after combat and replay it with the legendary serpent, or exploration, explore etc out and then get even more mana in main phase 2 to drop more massive Thassa babies? Freaking sign me the hell up and back sis


    Someone's excited. Smile

    So for all those of you talking about a time-spiral like time warp -

    Time spiral essentially retconned the MTG story to make all the "old walkers" (including us players) jive with the New World Order in storyland. The whole mending and such was used to basically negate all the old stories (like "Arena) and allow them to coexist in the MTG story.

    I doubt they'll F$%^ with time like they did there again.

    Khans kind of comes to mind, but that was a block about an inflection point in time and didn't span as large of a time period, so I don't see them doing anything besides maybe bringing Kamigawa to the contemporary timeline in the "planarverse."

    I have also heard about this Castlevania crossover from somewhere...

    As long as they keep it to promos like the Godzilla stuff, I'm ok with it.

    God forbid we allow land destruction... That might be super relevant in today's standard.

    This can easily be solved if reliable answers from days of yore were reprinted with earnest. Remember M11 standard? Bolt was there. Were there any out-of-control decks at the time? Not that I can recall. At least they brought Disenchant back over Naturalize...

    This is also a telling sign of the neglect WotC has put into the designing of standard-level sets and focusing too much on auxiliary products. But that's the result of having so many formats that require product support. They reap what they sow...

    Can't stop singing it. You had me until the last bit.

    But I'd still rather just play middle school.

    I too have been playing for a while and I remember darker times my guy.

    Urza's Saga and it's block wrecked power levels. Memory Jar was banned from almost the moment it was printed.

    Mirrodin was also wild times with a whole bunch of cards being banned.

    The Stoneblade days of standard were miserable.

    This past year or two have been almost as bad, but at least there's some competitors out there. I'm not gonna say it's not bad, but we've seen Wizard's bring the game back from the brink before (in both directions- remember Fallen Empires and Homelands?) and I have faith they'll do it again.

    Which game is it that you can play cards as "lands" or "spells"? My little pony? Rage? Yu-gi-oh?

    I can't remember. But it's a gigantic mechanical shift. The land ratio thing has always been a weakness of magic. Odd time to fix it. That's what I meant.

    Are there ANY kicker cards worth using besides Phyrexian Scuta? They tend to overprice kicker costs for some reason. I'd like to see that mechanic pushed a little more.

    If X could be 0, I wonder if there are any rules issues with that? It would essentially be a free kicker.

    But yeah, it would be actually playable in vintage and maybe legacy in that case. Not sure if good, but playable.

    Time will tell how effective these modular cards will be. Like mentioned above, if they go too far with them, they could break formats like companion did, so I appreciate the caution.

    Is it possible we have a mirror of what happened post-mirrodin? After the power level of Eldraine, Theros 2.0 and some other sets last year, is Wizard's dialing it back to Kamigawa levels of card power?

    I appreciate the ebb and flow of the game. I just hope MDFC's don't become a regular feature and turn the game into something else like pokemon. I have always hated DFC's and still don't play with any. I hope I can keep it that way.

    And kaldheim photo from plane chase has snow so with out even knowing by default snow is coming back in standard


    and for strixhaven two predictions

    1. It’s a Harry Potter/hogwarts inspired plane

    2. It’s Kasmina‘s home plane plus they mentioned during war of the spark they have plans for her


    We got this far down before someone said Harry Potter for Strixhaven. Totally sounds like Harry Potter. Bet they even play Quiddich or whatever.

    I am here for this Time Spiral. That was my favorite block of all time.

    I wonder how these reprints will affect card prices.

    If Zendikar has 350ish cards, there's either a ton of lands/artifacts/multi color cards or lotus cobra is probably not 193. That would be approximately 40-45 cards of each color and 150+ lands/artifacts/multi color. And no colorless spells, because those go first.

    So what does it all mean.


    Actually that seems about right at 193. If you take a look at say green from double masters green subsided in the 151-188 out of 332

    this is 193/280 (280 cards in the set) and since the ordering is Colorless > WUBRG > Multicolor > Artifacts > Lands, and we can assume a few more green cards after that, we're looking at say 60-70ish Multicolor+artifacts+lands, which for a land themed set feels about right.

    350 is a lot and tends to be reserved for sets like Double masters now (those numbers being a bit inflated by the glut of alternate art and special printing cards tied to the set). 270-280 is the normal range for a set like this.



    My bad- good lookin out. So I guess these are legit.
