    This can get real big real fast, especially in multicolor decks where even two cards of the same CMC are unlikely to have the same cost.

    If you look closely, you'll note that all of the etb effects so far are actually trading one thing for another. White trades a permanent on the field for a creature, Red trades cards in your hand for cards in your deck, Black trades one of your creatures for the destruction of an opponent's creature. Some of these are certainly better than others, but thematically they're all tradeoffs.

    Bone Splinters is kind of weak, but the rest of the card is solid enough that it works anyway.

    I feel like new Sorin is better off accelerating a bit into CMC4-5 vampires like Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet and Blood Baron of Vizkopa that you can still play if you don't draw him. All of the higher-CMC vampires aren't really that much better than them to justify being completely dead if you don't draw Sorin. He also wants to be able to use his first two abilities, so "Vampire Tribal that sometimes cheats in a 5 mana bomb on t3" seems a lot better than trying to jank combo out a... What? Garza Zol, Plague Queen? Morophon from the new set? Admittedly Morophon doesn't seem too awful, but the way you have to build your deck around it seems like it'll be clunky.

    Rotting Regisaur is bonkers and I'm in love with it.

    I also doubt, but I'd love if it were true. Goyf would almost certainly be an ok card at best in Standard, and such a wide printing would hopefully bring prices down even further.

    Also, could Scheming Symmetry be the card that finally enables Modern Miracles?


    Miracles, like what? UW Terminus was a thing for a good period of time.


    It was? For some reason I was thinking it was never quite good enough.

    I'm not as up on the meta as I used to be, though.

    Risen Reef seems kind of bat***** in decks that can produce lots of elemental tokens? It's a bit expensive and easy to remove, but notably triggers once on its own ETB so it's not a complete waste even if it's bolted, and if it isn't there's a real good chance you lay down Chandra, Acolyte of Flame or Young Pyromancer the next turn and start drawing/ramping.

    Pretty sure the best thing about this guy is enabling Snow on a not-completely-irrelevant body.

    So what's the chance we're off on the numbers and that last land slot is come kind of rare 5C snow land?


    Zero. We know how to count to 53 and 15 and we know how print sheets work. The entire rare/mythic sheet is accounted for. 237 is either common or uncommon.


    I was not aware that the numbers were quite that set in stone, and had seen people talking about there maybe being more rares than usual in threads like this before.

    Hope these aren't all the ninjas left. I was hoping for a strong one with Ninjutsu at CMC 1.

    As someone who loves sacrifice-based Zombie tribal decks, I'm ridiculously excited for Carrion Feeder. It and Undead Augur are huge buffs to my weird homebrews. Slant

    Twisted Reflection's design is cute.

    Vesperlark seems pretty good value.

    How fast can Dredge cast Hogaak, Arisen Necropolis?

    Ok, wow.

    The colored mana *requires* Convoke, but it seems like the deck that plays this can get that from Bloodghasts or whatever. How early can Dredge cast this big spicy boi?
