    The forest looks pretty...not great, but I do like the rest of these.

    cool it's another green white planeswalker

    whooo

    that was definitely a color pair that needed another planeswalker!!!!

    also was he "created" like a golem or something? Or was he made an agent of fate and he happens to be just regular old born? If it's the former...how does he even get a spark?

    I don't really get the connection between destiny and graveyard hate but maybe I'm just a filthy plebeian.

    I kinda wish each of them had some representation of their respective land type in the foggy nyx-ishness but I don't mind them really. I'll probably run some of them. It's cool that they're full art and textless too I guess.

    Third one

    golgari thug
    Life from the Loam
    bloodghast

    Well it’s a little better but the cost is above what the cards are worth

    30$ for 20$ worth of cards and golgari thug is just barely about a dollar

    And it’s not even 5 cards just 3 in the grave one


    Wow that is some *****. Definitely feel pretty let down right now.

    That's a pretty major mistake for Walgreens.

    Pff, dude 'pulled' all five Energy lands and a full-art Elspeth. Either they were filched from higher up the supply chain or it's a WotC plant.


    Not to mention the way the cards are distributed doesn't make much sense. I agree, the Walgreens story is probably just a cover up.

    Quote from Qysas »
    What you say is true. It would be nice to get some budget friendly fetch lands. Also a forum to talk and discuss deck designs for Pioneer would be great.


    That's the biggest disappointment from this announcement to me. With the banning of the fetchlands in Pioneer, I fear they'll never reprint the fetches in Standard again. I doubt they'll even reprint the slow fetches or finish their cycle with an enemy colored group. It's a god damn shame too. Slow fetches and Tango lands/Cycle lands in enemy colors would do a LOT to make decent enemy colored mana bases more viable in EDH and in other formats.

    I wish they would get over themselves and print the lands that need to be printed in the actual EDH products. Increase the amount of new cards a little bit and just add the lands that need to be added already. No precon deck that claims to be decent should have a manabase as bad as this years Jeskai deck ever again (it doesn't help that the deck itself is crappy too).

    Wicked Guardian seems good. I definitely think out of the two Pumkinmorph cards that Green got the better end of the bargain.

    Quote from Manite »
    You ever notice how, whenever a character of one gender is dominating a character of a different gender in the art, it's always a female dominating a male? Why don't we ever see the reverse? It's hard to call it equal representation when the representation isn't actually equal. Slant


    wouldn't want to cause another ***** storm ala Triumph of Ferocity is my best guess.

  • posted a message on Hasbro will phase out all plastic in their packaging by 2022
    Quote from foam_dome »
    So in order to reduce their environmental impact, they're going to replace all of their product packaging with paper-based stuff, which requires the harvesting of more trees...?

    Logic checks out

    Hopefully they'll find some other biodegradable alternative to paper, or they'll stick to recycled paper materials exclusively.


    Paper products are at least recyclable. A lot of cheap plastic just gets burned or blown into the ocean and can't be recycled anyways.

    I'm all for this change. This is the type of stuff I want to see more of.

    So with Knights in WRB and Faeries in BUG, is this some kind of wedge tribal set?

  • posted a message on [ELD] Forbes article introducing Oko, the Fey Shapeshifter (no card spoiler)
    All this talk about underdressed men and overdressed women, and speculation of sexuality, and whether Wizards is sputtering and failing or succeeding masterfully... I just think the leather pants look dumb. Fashion faux pas.

    I mean, he's a fairy. Fairies are often underdressed. Who cares?


    The thing that irks me about this isn't that the guy is kind of under dressed. It's more how smug Wizards comes across when they take their stance of putting girls in non-revealing and even shapeless clothes online sometimes because those things are "bad" but they have guys in revealing outfits all the time. It's eyeroll inducing and hypocritical to me.
