    Find it odd that the company who's other flagship product (dungeons and dragons) that is built entirely on creative story telling falls so far from expectations with each iteration with magic.

    They could literally walk up the hall and get some fruitful input.


    Not to mention Maro tells us nonhumans just aren't popular which is why we have so few compared to Human Walkers...funny and here I thought the most popular character in D&D is a Dark Elf. Funny how they can make it work but MTG just cannot sell nonhumans.

    That shows everything wrong with War of the Spark. An interesting conflict resolved in the background so we can have some more named Walkers running around Ravnica.

    I mean just cause I didn't want Jace overexposed doesn't mean I want to switch from the Jacetice League to Chandra and the Avengers. I mean I find Koth or Tibalt or Jaya far more interesting then Chandra as monoRed Walkers. Chandra is basically the generic fire mage and the unique things are she is Indian (though u cannot tell by looking at her) and she is Lesbian? Bi? But its not like WOTC focuses much on romance.

    As for the cards themselves the 6 cmc one is problematic. A guaranteed Emblem cause the only way u can stop Chandra is with discard. Counters have been crippled between T3feri and nothing below 3 cmc allowed by Maro and Friends. And you probably need a Walker killing spell because you it goes up to 8 Loyalty after One Plus. So direct damage for Red and creature damage is unlikely to take it down unless you have an overwhelming board advantage. And if so she probably wipes most of your creatures if you were going low to the ground. The death of interaction.

    I do agree Animated is a better choice then Live Action.

    It will be a boring Jacetice League Show most likely.

    Garruk in a Nordic land...hmm, for some reason the words "FUS RO DAH!" come to mind.


    Indeed. Though I think WOTC missed peak time for such a plane. We had that sweet overlap between Game of Thrones and Skyrim.

    What are the top 5 cards from War of the Spark? Karn, Teferi, Narset, Dovin's Veto and Blast Zone? Lili's Triumph? Saheeli?
    Yes it will be interesting to see if Modern Horizons can match such power.

    I find your defense abstract would you like to actually defend specific points. For instance, their justification for no counterspell in their own stream? This criticism isn't coming out of a vacuum. I mean I don't think you actually personally believe counterspell is too good for Modern so I be surprised if you want to die on this hill.

    Assuming the second half of spoilers are as mediocre as the first, I think we'll have to seriously question wotc's understanding of the format and how that affects B&R decisions or rule changes.

    I have literally been saying this for years, and constantly mocked for it. But time and time again, they show that their understanding of the format is embarrassingly thin and almost entirely dictated by spreadsheets and data sets of names. There is no deep and fundamental understanding of the actual format meta or how the decks interact with each other, outside of the absolute most basic, surface level observations. Is this set what it finally takes for others to see that?


    Honestly what makes it disgraceful is that it aint hard for WOTC if they care about this stuff to sign up to some Forums like this, Cruise multiple Reddit for Magic and sit in Discords. This isn't the 90s or early 00s. If they actually cared it wouldnt be that hard to do a decent job. If they wanted to do some research and find out what people think about various decks it be easy. But I honestly don't think they care and wanna fix things.

    I mean really we don't want to give some colors answers cause they make the current answers bad? What do you care your selling packs not singles and presumably you want your new stuff to sell...stuff like this makes it hard to believe WOTC doesn't profit off the Secondary Market. But also its just a fundamental flawed people want new answers cause the current ones are lagging behind. I respect them more if they just flat out said we don't want better answers. But not printing Counterspell aint going to make people play 3 CMC Counter in Modern. They will pay the 2 CMC ones they got and the 1 CMC options. Besides Cryptic cause that is special.

    Interesting which Walkers did you replace in UW and UWR to play Splicer. Cause I don't know a constant token generator seems pretty good with Walkers for protecting when you don't have a wipe or want to save spot removal. Against little Teferi they cannot counter at all and to a lesser extent big Teferi helps you get mana to keep splicing.


    Now on Force of Negation I agree the main use seems to be saying nope to their Walkers.
