Oh and Chandra, Fire Artisan also gives a minor benefit with NG

Greedy as I am, I wished Agitator Ant cost and let you decide all the creatures (but forced you to do so each time, so when you're down to 1v1 it would basically be Evolutionary Escalation). Too much to ask for Dismantling Wave to be a cantrip with overload too?

Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor: yeah but that's what I meant by the preface; since for almost all PWs, more loyalty isn't a bad thing, the usage of Nesting Grounds just becomes a bad proliferate and non-novel. (but sure, the prospect of getting an ultimate out a turn early out of nowhere makes it worth considering). Only exception I could think of is moving a counter from Garruk Relentless  Flip to transform him right away (and letting you activate his backface abilities on the same turn), and Elspeth, Sun's Nemesis, where you can -2 her twice before killing her with Nesting Grounds so that she can escape

Confused and frustrated about the templating difference for Mindleecher and Haldan. Color cost agnosticism should be universal when it comes to casting other people's stuff for retail price.

Not a big deal but Glademuse doesn't feel like a mono- since it's an enemy of and has City of Solitude & Dosan the Falling Leaf

Crossing my thumbs for something like this in the coming commander products: Curse of the Revel

The second chapter of Medomai's Prophecy gets triggered three times. Its controller names Brainstorm, Ponder, and Brainstorm. On the turn the saga gets to chapter three, its controller casts Brainstorm, Ponder, and Brainstorm. How many times will the drawing from the chapter trigger?

Oh and lets start looking for Nesting Grounds combos. Since Hex Parasite and plain old proliferate already exists for when you just want to remove or increase counters on a single permanent, let's first and foremost go for combos where you either move a counter from a permanent which doesn't want it to one that does, or from a permanent which can easily produce a counter to one where it's harder to get started (after which it's probably easier to just proliferate). Also note that Fate Transfer and Leech Bonder already got creature-to-creature moving covered.

Decree of Silence + Saprazzan Skerry cycle

Chance Encounter + Gemstone Caverns

Thing in the Ice  Flip/Dark Depths/Woolly Razorback + Iceberg

Sagas + Myth Realized/Scroll of the Masters/Mind Unbound

Cheap level-up cards + expensive level-up cards (meh)

Gleeock Re: Shiny Impetus: I get that you get the treasures and that you can put it on someone else's creature, I just don't like that it's kind of expensive (even if you get a refund over time), reliant on an opponent having a decent creature out, and fleeting since it naturally puts itself in danger. Not a bad card by any stretch, Curse of Opulence just does so much more!

I like the white and red free cards since they give beatdown strategies a bit more chance to breathe. Not a fan of the green one for the same reason.

White gets thrown another card advantage bone

Still not a fan of mono- with built-in fight or even the 3 CMC reveal-sorcery. non-combat creature removal needs to require an existing creature permanent unrelated to the removal card, period. (I'd be fine with a mutate fight trigger though.)

DDJ: It does have Sprite Dragon but yeah, that makes sense since this set is also wedge-based. Feels kinda silly that e.g. Illuna isn't a dragon but whatever

OK with the fact that the parallel release of a commander product with a normal set means that they'll include more legends that aren't EDH-pushed yet still interesting, e.g. Yidaro

Quite happy about Mothra, Flawless Maneuver, and the red warrior that gives menace to anyone that attacks your opponents for my Marisi deck. Shiny Impetus is... meh, but it got the right spirit.

I hope there's enough EDH-playable mutate cards to support the abzan, jeskai, and temur apex legendaries as commanders

the Human mardu commander isn't bad, but it's even less interesting than Syr Gwyn

Kelsien is there to carry Kalemne and zombie!Daktos I guess

Shabraz is very, very silly and I approve

Lukka: make a deck where all creatures are either 1 drops (or 0 drops and tokens instead) or bombs, then feed one of the little ones to this guy

Neat that Phage the Untouchable, Tetzimoc, Primal Death and Haakon, Stromgald Scourge get some much-needed love in the form of Netherborn Altar

Was going to post this several hours ago before I ran into DNS problems: "Flavorwise, let's acknowledge that this set is ripping off various monster movies, Pokémon, & Monster Hunter, and that's OK. (Sharknado copyright holders, now is the time for one last cash grab by suing over a certain blue enchantment.)"

Finally: Am OK with the Kaiju alt cards since they're non-canonical, although I'd prefer if they didn't use art that features modern non-sci-fi stuff like skyscrapers. I realize that's a tall order with the genre in mind though. As for the Spacegodzilla thing, I think they could get away with it since corona-related humor is pretty widely accepted as a global coping mechanism, but even then I agree that specifically "Death Corona" is really cringeworthy here. Hell it was pretty bland to include "Death" in the title in the first place since afaik SGZ isn't associated with e.g. zombies; "Void/Cosmic/Astral Corona" or something would have been more fitting (Godzilla franchise fans are free to voice their disagreement).

So you can mutate Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and put the mutate card on top, resulting in a nonlegendary creature with Kiki's abilities that can target itself, resulting in endless tapped tokens. Any other combos that take advantage of mutate's fairly unique type-altering? Also, any fun that can be had by mutating a temporarily animated noncreature?

Yennett is looking at Obosh with yearning and the hybrid rule with bitterness.

Finally, gonna give my +1 to the otter ban, even sol ring isn't used in every optimized deck. I hope people aren't placing the sole blame on the Commander Rules Committee either, seeing as it was apparently announced on the stream that it'd be banned in both EDH & Brawl; I'm guessing it was something WotC and the Committe came to an understanding over beforehand.

Can confirm the Krosan Beast thing (including the post apparently resides in the dark net), although note that you still get the ETB/death trigger

Chipmunks are classified as squirrels by biology, but so are e.g. groundhogs ¯I_(ツ)_I¯

TacoBoy: yeah I think it's a rat since it's gray and has a pretty fat torso, but it's hard to tell. Probably safest for everyone to consult their playgroup before including that card

On a related note, Argothian Enchantress is tagged in the Scryfall search but that thing doesn't look like a squirrel to me. Its appendages are damn weird and its head seems like a cross between a cat and a bat.

Also, I'd like to note that AFAIK Contraption's aren't casted so they won't trigger Acornelia's first ability (although I guess you can make them trigger the second one with something like Conspiracy + Titania's Song).

I assume including Gate to Phyrexia as an additional way of making Sol Rings stealable is too cute?
