    One of my friend's decks literally only has lands, mana rocks, Helm and Rest in Peace out. His only creature is his commander or a Snapcaster Mage.
    This could quite easily remove RIP and turn Helm into a janky "Embrace the Chaos" object. Of course, this is sorcery speed, and needs to resolve, but it's still decent.

    Well, looks like Merciless Rage is the first Commander deck I purchase over the past few years.
    Very nice inclusions there.

    It's fine that it exiles, otherwise you could just basically lock people out of the game, right?
    A
    B C
    D

    If D activates this, then C goes next instead of B, then when it goes to A, you'd re-use it and get C to go again, then you'd get a turn.
    With the self-exile, B is at least going to get a turn, two turns later instead of immediately.
    This has the potential to get really swingy. A player that has a strong board presence could be made to go next in turn order and essentially seal the game.
    Also fits nicely into the "Embrace the Chaos" philosophy EDH holds dear.

    Commander is bonkers.
    Sun Titan is a fine reprint, they are not expensive but almost always sold out in local stores.
    Glad to see the decks are branching out in different directions, will give brewers a ton of fun.

    This is a fine card, and the type of card they should be printing for the format. Punitive against mana-rock heavy decks, gives you a short-term boost and isn't egregiously expensive to play. Nice work here.

    Good call here, Sultai deck looking better.

    I mean, the turn this becomes active I can just cast Gilded Lotus and get 3 mana all the time?
    Sure, you can do infinite mana, but that's trivially easy with Basalt Monolith and so on.

  • posted a message on C19 Another Bust?
    It's too early to call these a bust. There are interesting commanders and some sweet new cards. The reprints are fine to mediocre. Seedborn Muse is welcome, but they could have printed Solemn Simulacrum or Altar of Dementia or even some jank like cyc;e duals, the Jace that mills people, or even the new Lazav since it cares about the grave.

    I'm obviously interested in the Rakdos deck, since it hits right notes in my Xantcha, but probably singles again this year.
    I really feel that they should axe the Commander pre-cons for a period and just do a booster box of Commander staples. Tack on an unwieldy draft format if you must, but just drop a reprint box with staples (Solemn, Failing that, some other limited product that can insert them back, such as Battlebond or Conspiracy.

    Note you don't need a creature, it's just any creature out there.
    But you won't get the spell effect unless the creature they get was yours, right?

    I’m struggling to understand what this does, is the translation incomplete or am I just not smart enough?


    Say they cast an Ancestral Vision, target themselves. You get their Ancestral Vision and give them some junk Myr token that's on the battlefield. Note you don't need a creature, it's just any creature out there.
    Fun, but super mean, card.


    It's an exchange, so the player whose creature was selected will get control of the spell.


    OH yeah, you guys are right! Man, this card is soooooooooo politicky, I love it!

    Sweet card, I love this type of effect.
    This Commander product is really hitting the mark, powerful abilities without super broken potential, for the most part.

    Yeah, got into an argument with a good friend that this would hit close to 40, didn't believe me.
    I have 0 right now, will need to get some backs asap while they aren't crazy expensive.
    Great design, flawed distribution at rare.

    Does Leadership Vacuum increase the commander tax or does it just go back with the same tax it had before?


    This is a really good question. If it increases the tax, the card is super busted, and there needs be a method to lower commander tax.

  • posted a message on Major changes to Magic announced at SDCC? (New booster variants and premium styles)
    All of this is leaving me *shrug*?
    The all-foil boosters are great, but I won't get them unless there are absolute bombs in the set.
    Throne of Eldraine looks thematically awesome, but as I tweeted to Magic, this looks like another set without Zendikar fetches or other Modern/Eternal staples being re-printed.

    I don't see anything here that would be a "Major Change". That would involve retiring an eternal format, formalizing a "staples" reprint policy or somesuch.
    The 25th year was super cool for a bunch of reasons, but this year has been pretty hit and miss.

    Glad to see Engine go, Iona was very meh.
    Painter's Servant is super obnoxious. My friend who ran Engine decks is going to jam Servant instead, with Wash Out, Llawan, etc.
    We'll deal, since it's a creature, but man.
