Quote from JovianHomarid »I'm guessing that with a cycle of "Kird Ape Creatures" there will be no other multicoloured cards besides Garruk. Since the Garruk challenge-dude has B/G borders, it seems safe to keep assuming that he will be BG.
I guess most people didn't expect many multicoloured cards in a core set anyway, but with all the talk about 20 extra uncommons "to improve limited", I wouldn't have been that surprised if they had done a cycle of two-coloured uncommons. I am now guessing that the kird-ape cycle will play the role of multicoloured cards. (Which I like.)
EDIT: I cannot find any inforamtion in the source-code. Has it changed, or am I stupid?
Quote from cjwynesI don't recall any animosity towards him being stated by WotC, so I suppose so. He's always been acknowledged to be strong in limited, but not completely ridiculous for a rare, there are plenty of answers to him. He also gives Johnny drafters a little combo to work with in conjunction with tappers, which is nice to have in a core set draft occasionally.
As far as constructed magic, there were a few times I stuck him into some brews when the time seemed right, G/B midrange rock decks and things like that, and it was OK for FNM-level competition. I'd love for him to be back, since I own two Beta copies that I like to play with -- any black card especially looks so much nicer in Alpha/Beta
If I were WotC, I would have put Royal Assassin in this set, plus Shivan Dragon, and as many iconic Alpha reprints as I could cram into the set. You could put them on a "time-shifted" sheet or something like that, even use the old card frames! That's the point of having a big 20th anniversary set, to celebrate the origins of the game and the people who are still around from the beginning. The more of the set we see and none of that is happening, the more it looks like the game isn't for us anymore, it's for the new players, and tying it in with DotP to market to newbies is more important than tying it in with the game's history and legacy.
Quote from DemonDragonJWhy is WotC reprinting cards such as pacifism and cancel again?! Can they not leave out those cards from a single core set? And will pacifism at least have new artwork, I hope?
Yes, I shall remain hopeful, since there are still many cards of this set that have not yet been revealed.

The flavor text says (nearlly) : "It's useless to wait the opportunity. You must provoke it."
