    To me, it appears to be:

    "You may pay 1 and return an untapped land you control to owner's hand instead of paying this card's mana cost."

    I see "you may pay 1 and..." "land you..." for sure.

    My bet on Firewild Borderpost is:
    You may pay (1) and return an untapped land you control to owner's hand instead of paying Firewild Borderpost's mana cost.

    (Mana Ability that generates Red and Green mana)



    Upon closer inspection, I think this is close or dead on. I seem to be able to make out the words "You may pay 1 and..." "land you..."

    As for the Throctar... I thought it would have the new "cascade" ability too, especially since that ability has only been shown in RB so far, but the text doesn't seem to match. I can't figure out what it is...

    Oh, and speaking on art: Pale Recluses' artwork horrifies me and I will get no sleep tonight. That is the first artwork on a spider creature which has made me paranoid (Yes I have arachnaphobia, specifically of brown recluse spiders XD).

    Quote from Papillon
    Meddling has only ever appeared twice in all of magic: once on Meddling Mage, and once on Meddling Kids. The word "named" appears on ten cards. That both these words would appear in the same set is a tremendous coincidence, unless they're reprinting Meddling Mage.



    Actually, 4 times.



    Guay = 0. Aww. =(

    I love how Bituminous Blast can play Thought Hemorrhage. Grin

    Yeah, it definitely says "You may pay 1 and...." I also think I see "hand" in there? Maybe:

    "You may pay 1 and reveal a red and green card from your hand rather than paying this card's mana cost"?

    Or maybe you discard a card that shares the appropriate colors with the respective borderpost?

    Just another thing:
    New art <--- for M10 Ponder? Am I the only one who noticed that? I haven´t seen this art yet.


    That's the art for the Textless Ponder. I didn't even know there was one until a few days ago.

    This, because of this:




    Alright, I thought so, but we had a situation come up in a multiplayer game where I played a Firespout and someone pumped his creatures in response, and there was disagreement about whether or not they would die or live. Thanks. Smile

    I don't know why I've never known the answer to this, but I don't.

    Scenario:

    I have Birds of Paradise in play. My opponent targets birds with Shock. In response, I play Giant Growth on my Birds in an attempt to save it.

    Now, I know that damage stays on the creature until the end of the turn, and the effect of Giant Growth lasts until the end of turn. My question is: At the end of the turn, will Giant Growth's effect be removed first, leaving the Birds to die to the 2 damage that's still on it, or will the damage and the effect of Giant Growth both be removed simultaniously, saving the Birds?

    It does sound awkward as a non-creature spell, although for some reason, seems like it should be. Perhaps it generates a token? This set is full of mysteries. I can't wait until the spoilers start coming in.

    Quote from Zahntavier
    Bolas doesn't need a slave, he just WANTS one, and as we know, what Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker wants, he gets. (Think the -2 planeswalker ability)

    And the artwork is so clean! I'll bet it ends up in next years Spectrum.



    Huh, that's a good point. We already got Bolas' ultimate ability, in the form of Cruel Ultimatum, and now it looks like we might get his second ability in the form of another non-creature spell (Though I could also see this as a creature, I suppose). I wonder if we'll see a Vindicate that doesn't hit creatures too.

    Seems to be working fine for me, too. Great job, whoever fixed it! (Or if the site somehow fixed itself...uh...it's about time!) XD

    I also am having a lot of problems. Pages refuse to refresh, and I can only go from page to page by opening up the link in a new tab (So I'm constantly having to open and close tabs just to browse the site). When I post, the page gets stuck and never refreshes, but my post still goes through.

    Ooo! I'll take Duress and Faith's Fetters please. (Surely they wouldn't put the tutor in there. o0)

    Quote from Melriken
    How bad would...

    Serra's Grove
    Legendary Land - Forest Plains


    That actually interests me. What I would like to see though, is this concept, paired with Flagstones of Trokair. Something like:

    Serra's Grove
    Legendary Land

    T: Add G or W to your mana pool. When ~ is put into a graveyard from play, search your library for a basic forest or plains and put it into play tapped. Then shuffle your library.


    Too powerful? The only immediate drawback I see is that having a whole deck full of these would allow for a lot of deck thinning, and it would pretty much ruin any future land destruction cards. However, this would also push the use of more basic lands in decks (which would support the theorized "back to basics" theme that people expect the next block to have), as well as helping Domain and other things.

    I don't know. I'm sure there are plenty of unseen problems here that I'm not noticing. It sounds interesting, but I'm no card designer and I only play T2/casual, so I don't exactly know how this would affect older formats.
