    The thing is, there are no decks that accidentally meet the criteria. I challenge you to find a pre-existing deck that could just slot one in. It's a choice. For example my wife has an elementals deck, but she'll have to cut 9 cards in order to play the g/w companion. And it's weak enough that it's an interesting choice. As long as they keep the designs the way they are I'm fine. Sol ring fits your description better then any of the companions.

    Wonder if that works if you cast it it for free? It still has an x in it's cost and it has a value for x, but I'm really not sure what would happen.

    I'm actually not a fan of all these recent secret layers for a different reason. I thought the idea, as originally presented, was cool. Crazy out there art, limited time only. This one and the women one would fit right into most sets. Sure they're a little more refined, but it's not like the cats or the visions that would NEVER be printed. I feel like, with so many coming out, they're just falling back on normal magic art. Slow your roll wizards, plan out some truly original stuff, and I'm in.
    Also, sorry to pile on, but yeah. That loot box comment wasn't thought through at all. If you want to go after the sales practice, I'd call it praying on peoples tendencies to impulse buy and manufacturing scarcity. But there's not a good, catch all, phrase to say those things... unless there is:)

    I agree with both sides, but to back up Xcric if products like unsanctioned weren't trying to cast a wide net, why do they have full at lands. Especially ones that are distinctly not funny. Sure there's a certain type of player that loves uncards. But you can't sell a product that only a few 1000 people will buy. You need to turn a prophet. That's not nessicarily bad, it's just business. I do think it's kinda crazy how many products they are releasing these days though.

    I sent my PM a while ago, just thought I'd get on here to let others know I'm in and excited. I've got 18 cards ready to go out!

    Quote from vandertroll »
    As promised, I am mildly annoyed for not reprinting the Top on a deck that cares on the top (see what i did there) of your library. Lazy deckbuilding at its finest.

    I agree that this deck was the obvious place for it, and with the increases price it seemed like they might do it, but to call it "lazy deck building" is just wrong. Putting all the obvious cards in is closer to the definition of lazy. Be more constructive with your critique. Calling it "lazy" is just mean and, well frankly, lazy.

    Do you all play the same game as me? I've never seen so many magic players complaining about drawing cards. Sure, it's an easy tack on, but it's a great one.

    Not sure if this is the right place for this thread, but sure some of the art is a little cartoony. But a.) as has been said let the rest of the set come out first and b.) it's not all that way there are some of the normal styles you'd expect already spoiled.

    Again though, this isn't really a spoiler of any kind, could be wrong but I bet there's a better place for this thread.

  • posted a message on Chances of Dominaria "Tresures" to replace masterpieces?
    What do you all think the chances are of WotC doing OG Zendikar style treasures in at least the first print run off Dominaria? They could be played up as "historic relics of the past." Does anyone know the logistics of this, would it even be possible? Here's to hoping I open a beta black lotus at the pre-release!

    I think people are being a little rough on this card. Sure it's not Cable coffers. But it ads mana on its own unlike coffers, and comes into play untapped unlike Crypt of Agadem. I think for mono black, especially commander or brawl, this is a completely respectable inclusion. And, except for weird corner cases, you weren't ever going to play it outside of mono-black anyway.
