Quote from Gojira XAwesome to see legends (and new legends at that) in core.
Quote from MOON-EThis is exactly what I was going to say.
It's funny because i actually had the opposite happen to me: i started playing in ravnica, then left and came back in alara, so I had to become familiar with blocks not being multicolored.
Quote from BarinellosI think with RtR being a gold set, they're trying to do a little to get new players familiar with gold.
It's also probably too late for you vote the card shenanigans since this will have to already be at print right now.
Quote from DontrikeDefinitely a cool card and is bound to see some sort of play in control.
I love seeing legendary creatures back in core sets. Now we just have to wait and see if multicolored cards are coming back or if it is just Bolas.
I do like the packaging as well.
Quote from BarinellosHe isn't. Liliana only went to Grixis once and didn't realize there were demons there.
Man... EVERY TIME a new demon shows up... Not cool guys.
Quote from DomaDragoonQuestion: are we sure that that Lili is a booster pack? From my untrained eye, that packaging looks more like the Booster Battle Pack cover to me.
Quote from Marelt EkiranFor everyone who is puzzled about the appearance of a plane-specific name in a core set, all that it means is that core sets are no longer exclusive to Dominaria.
Bogardan, Shiv, Yavimaya, etc. are all locations on the plane of Dominaria and have all been featured on core edition cards.
Quote from OlivierHello all,
I've noticed a trend with the most recent sets. Scars was Mirrodin 2.0. Innistrad was Kamigawa 2.0 (more on this later). Right after, we're getting Ravnica 2.0. So, I speculate we'll have some form of TSP afterwards. (Possibly llorwen though, since the TSP was the end of a story)
Right now, the burden is on me to prove how ISD is like Kami. Both were telling a story. Both had factions at war. Both had a happy ending. Both were extremely flavorful, and more of a flavor built set than anything (with the key difference being kamigawa failed to be popular). I feel that ISD was kamigawa done RIGHT, and with that we have a 1-2-3 pattern of blocks.
Has anyone else noticed this?
Quote from Blackbird71Sakashima's Student is definitely a great card, but even with all the excitement in this thread, I don't think most people here really appreciate how truly amazing this card is. This is the card I have been waiting for for a long time; it enables the greatest combo in Magic history. What combo is that, you ask?
Get ready for it...
Here it comes...
Yes, that's right ladies and gentlemen, with Sakashima's Student, it is now possilbe to play a Zombie Pirate Ninja creature! With this card, Magic has officially reached the pinnacle of awesome.
Quote from gereffiI think it is actually your job. Both players should keep track of both life totals.
Quote from TanionWell doesn't this stop people from rule sharking you? I had this incident happen a lot in my FNMs.
Player One: Puts down Cavern of Souls forgets to name creature type (Plays all humans). Tap two plains and Cavern to bring out Mirran Crusader.
Player Two: COUNTER IT! with disspate
Player One: WTF it says uncounterable?!
Player Two: Didnt name a creature type!!!
Is it the job of the other player too to ask what the person using Cavern for?
Quote from Captain_MorganSeems like anything that plays well in eternals and Modern gets like that as a $20 staple creature. But yea, having another go at her or having something new to drive down her price is always something good. "Staples" that are like $80/set is pretty dumb.
