I think your topic idea sounds cool.

To make sure it stays like you suggested, write that in its opening.

Something like:

"This topic is meant to be fun. Try to be polite and respectful."

See if you can introduce the thread without posing a question that people need to speculate about.

"Let's see how many M:tG-themed insults and pickup lines we can come up with."

Good luck with it.

The reprint of Seedborn Muse is another reprint that I have been desiring very much, since I will be needing one for an EDH deck that I am building. With all the great reprints in this set, would it be too much to hope that WotC may reprint Rhystic Study in it?

I also am very fond of archfiend of despair, since I am surprised that it took WotC so long to print a creature version of Wound Reflection, and I actually made such a creature as my own custom card quite some time ago.

I also am very pleased to see black cards that are causing loss of life, rather than dealing damage, as Dominaria had me worried that WotC was changing how black functioned.

Another reprint of Swords to Plowshares is always welcome, but I really wish that it had new art, because the current art, while awesome, has been used numerous times, currently.

With the upcoming release of Battlebond, I have added Will Kenrith and Rowan Kenrith to this list, and, with the upcoming release of the Global Series, I have also added Jiang Yanggu and Mu Yanling to this list.

I really like the reprint of Land Tax, as it has been too long since that card was last reprinted, but not that of True-Name Nemesis, as that card is extremely difficult to defeat if you are the chosen player.

Since WotC has not yet revealed their relationship, are Will and Rowan Kenrith lovers, siblings, or something else?

MagicalHacker, that is very informative; I did not know that, so I thank you very much.

MWorl91, I am sorry that I need to ask, but why does it matter what colors the planeswalkers are?

cdkime, that is very true, and is also the reason that modern military men in actuality wear their hair short, as well. Also, as a side note, one of the reasons that long hair is considered a sign of beauty (more often for women) is that it is evidence that a person can afford the luxury of caring for their hair, as a hunter/gatherer or a farmer will be so busy with their job that they likely will not have time to care for their hair. As another side note, that is also the reason for which many cultures consider fair skin to be a sign of beauty; someone with fair skin can afford the luxury of remaining inside, while someone with dark skin likely is toiling outside all day long.

I am rather displeased that Will Kenrith has short hair, as this is a fantasy setting, so real-world trends should not apply; the idea that short hair is masculine is a human concept that has no basis in biology, so why is it so persistent?

On a more positive note, I am overjoyed that Doubling Season is being reprinted, again! I need a copy for and EDH deck that I shall soon be building, so this reprint is perfectly timed. I dislike how it has been increased to a mythic rare, but it should still definitely decrease in price.

izzetkid987, yes, I would like to see the allied-colored filter lands reprinted, as well, which is the question that I was originally asking with this thread.

If a full set on Kamigawa is unlikely, what about Kamigawa appearing in the next core set or the next Commander set?

I liked how this story was told from Slimefoot's perspective, and it was a nice "breather" chapter before the approaching battle against Belzenlok.

izzetkid987, have you checked any vendors recently? The reprints of the filter lands severely decreased their prices, for which I am very grateful; I can scarcely believe that such great lands are so low in price, and have already purchased several copies of them for my decks.

Nintendo's NES and SNES classic editions are selling well, and I believe that it is almost certain that Nintendo shall make an N64 classic edition, as well, but how likely is it that they shall make a Gameboy classic edition? The Gameboy was one of the greatest handheld consoles, ever, so it definitely deserves a classic edition, in my mind.

If such a console were to become a reality, there are several questions that I would have for it. First, would it cover all four incarnations of the Gameboy (original, pocket, color, and advance) or only the original? Second, what games would it include? Third, how small would it be, considering that every version of the Gameboy after the first was already quite small.

The Gameboy was the only dedicated video game console that I actually owned (all others, I used when visiting friends), as the majority of the video games that I played in my childhood were for DOS and Windows, so I have fond memories of it. For me, the following games would be absolutely mandatory for a Gameboy classic edition: Super Mario Land, Super Mario Land 2, Wario Land, Wario Land II, Kirby's Dreamland, Kirby's Dreamland 2, Tetris, Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening, LoZ: Oracle of Ages, and LoZ: Oracle of Seasons.

What does everyone else say about this? How likely is is that Nintendo shall make a Gameboy classic edition?

meatsmith, I believe that the filter lands are awesome, some of the best dual lands in the game, other than the original dual lands and the shocklands, because they enter the battlefield untapped and also have unrivaled flexibility with the mana that they generate; for example, if a player controlled a Mountain and a Cascade Bluffs, they could cast Counterspell, which they could not do with a mountain and a Steam Vents.

izzetkid987, both Ravnica blocks have featured hybrid mana, and the first one actually introduced it, so I believe that the filter lands could easily be reprinted in a third Ravnica block.

This weeks story was very nice, I definitely agree with Jaya that the fact that Chandra did not accept Jayas previous offers of assistance (before Chandra knew her true identity) is her own fault, and that Jaya is not obligated to assist Chandra in any way, now.

I am surprised that the Golgothian sylex is still around, as it has scarcely been seen or heard since the Brothers War, and Karn made a mistake when he said that Urza created it. I just recently read The Brothers War (the novel), and Feldon and Hurkyl found it in a glacier.

There is definitely no way that WotC shall bring an end to the New Phyrexia storyline so abruptly, so I expect that Karns plan will somehow not succeed. On that subject, why have the members of the Gatewatch not asked the older planeswalkers who the Phryexains are? There is nothing to indicate that they have ever heard of Phyrexia, before now, so I find it odd that they have never expressed curiosity about them.

I am glad that Jace appeared in this story only briefly, as there are already a significant number of characters involved in the story at the present time. With two major threats being present simultaneously (Bolas and Belzenlok), the heroes are certainly in a difficult situation. Obviously, the story is focusing on Belzenlok first, so I hope that the battle against him is not too easy.

The end was very nice, and I do hope that Teferi takes back his planeswalker spark, as he will be a very useful ally against not only Belzenlok, but Bolas, as well.

The decklists were revealed, today!

I am so very happy that Atraxa is being reprinted, because she is far too expensive, and I am planning to build an EDH deck with her as the general, so her being reprinted will definitely reduce her price.

Gattison, I do agree that $10 per pack is far too much, not matter how good the cards are, which is why I always purchase single cards, never packs.

Gattison, I have mostly been very impressed with the Masters series, thus far, although I do not think that we really needed to have three Modern Masters sets; I would have much preferred a second Eternal Masters set instead of the third Modern Masters. The only Masters set with which I was truly disappointed was Iconic Masters, because it did not have as strong of a central theme as did the other Masters sets and was released only several months before the drastically superior Masters 25.

izzetkid987, I hope that when WotC eventually does reprint the shocklands, again, it will not be in another Ravnica block, because those lands were deliberately designed to be capable of being printed in any set on any plane in the multiverse. In fact, I have read that they were very nearly reprinted in Tenth Edition, but were abandoned in favor of the painlands, instead, which is very tragic. Even worse, WotC was planning to reprint the enemy-colored checklands (Hinterland Harbor, Isolated Chapel, etc.) in Magic Origins, but again chose the painlands, instead, despite the painlands now being severely outclassed by numerous other cycles of lands.

I really like the ideas that everyone here has suggested, especially those from itachi45 and MagicalHacker; brainstorming and collaborating/cooperating are powerful tools, indeed.

izzetkid987, in that case, is it also safe to presume that there is also no way to know when WotC shall reprint the shocklands, again?

TheDevicer, in that case, do you have any advice on how I can improve this card?

Said on Riddle of the ......


This game has plenty of sphinxes, but very few of them seem to tell riddles, which is weird, considering that one of the most famous stories about a sphinx in real-word mythology is the story of the sphinx in the Greek tale of Oedipus, who asks the titular character a riddle.

Therefore, I have created my own card that I feel portrays the idea of a sphinx asking a riddle to another being, as seen, here:

Riddle of the Sphinx Show

What does everyone think of this card? Is it interesting and unusual?
