    This is going to look stupid good as a foil.

    "Giant source" makes me think the creature types will be able to appear on more than just the creatures (similar to the discontinued Tribal type). Maybe we'll be able to affix creature types to artifacts or something via Runes?

    Overall seems really good for giant tribal.

    That or they are accounting for the few tribal giant spells that do damage. We have seen a creature type on equipment before, though with Tribal shenanigans, so perhaps we'll see more.

    So who wants to pre-buy these off me for 5 bucks a pop? Should be a "steal" for that price for such a strong playable card right?

    Seriously, what's your issue with this card? It's standard playable card, nothing more. No one is expecting this to be the next Goblin Guide, but where it is here in Standard it seems fine.


    I have every right to voice my displeasure. So no, I don't have to like it or tolerate it if I don't want to. We agree to disagree and move on.

    I understand that, I complain about stuff all the time in Magic to an almost worrying degree and you and me have even agreed fully as we complained about the same thing, but you have to pick your battles and focusing so hard on this particular card seems odd. At least something like Jeweled Lotus there was reason to complain about it, but this is just an inoffensive adequate red rare in a Standard set. I don't get it.

    I buy both, I just don't like settling for draft chaff in the rare slot. This card will see ZERO play outside draft, Standard and Commander.

    If that's your standard then there's really no discussion to be had. Not every card is going to see play across every format and you're just gonna have to live with that.

    This will be the rare I get 3 normal and 2 foil in a set booster box.

    This card could be an uncommon instead of wasting a rare slot. It's a constructed piece of garbage.

    Is it? It seems average to even possibly slightly good. A 2/2 for 2 with first strike is not bad and can defend well enough and if even a dragon or two is playable, especially with Changelings, the Boast ability will be easy to trigger.

    It's not the best thing in the world, but it doesn't look bad.

    Quote from Lectrys »
    Shandalar is more than just one island in the mist, though. I call fake unless proven otherwise.
    Attached image is the whole world map (its one island)

    Tutorial video for Shandalar (Opening scene is mist/smoke/fog and utilizes it throughout the video): https://youtu.be/1jp4tMSIr_U

    while I doubt this is the exact 1:1, its kind of funny to me at least.

    Seeing that image I hope there's a nonbasic uncommon land cycle for those color castles. Make them Temple of the False God style lands that make two of the color. That's all I want is to open a pack and get Green Castle.

    So it's morph and suspend put together. That's....pretty good actually. These won't be able to be hit by discard and cheaper costs are nice when you can split them up.

    Well the partzy hard, shred harder art is something else: https://twitter.com/lacuna_coil/status/1331629127791611910

    Well those are pretty dang awesome, Thraximundar's name is kind of hard to read. I would actually buy this, but I don't want to support Secret Lairs.

    Out of the entire characters I would have chosen from Onslaught block I would have chosen Karona over Akroma. Karona needs a better card that represents her better. Cards here are good though.

    Go ahead and quibble about how it’s a dead card when you’re commander is out and protected (so you’re already in a strong position if not winning).

    It puts out your commander early or pays for tax. There are extremely few decks where this isn’t an auto-include.

    I think I'll find a way to not include it in any of my decks from Goreclaw to Daretti, Tariel to Phenax, Atraxa to Torbran, Mazirek to Melek, Scarab God to Ravos+Kraum, R/G Omnath to Tiana. In any of those Daretti and Goreclaw are the only two that really wants to get out turn one or far faster than they normally would, but then I have no protection and I put a target on my back so large I might as well scoop then and there.

    I'll find a way to survive without it. Sol Ring is far more auto include than this shiny flower.
