I know. It's wishful thinking. I love the design, even for its flaws. I just don't like foils in my 99 because of how easy they warp.

I may be a bit salty that the Invocations are only in foil. Oh how I would love to have a nonfoil Masterpiece in my EDH decks.

Atony1400: source?

Don't you mean Razaketh? Or am I missing something (I already know the card is from Amonkhet)?

March 29, 2017 2:38 p.m.

I was thinking...I wonder if the Amonkhet Gods will make use of the Brick Counters as a way to turn into creatures. So, they'd be legendary artifact creatures that start out as artifacts, then become creatures after reaching some number of brick counters.

Ok, so here's something that confused me:

Why did the gods intervene? If they knew what the 'Watch was up to, they would've let them die. Either they don't know, or they don't fancy Bolas.

Oh, and it should've been Jace that got swallowed by the wurm. Damn it.

Wait a minute...3 are missing, or am I delusional?

Regardless; I'd collect these if they weren't foil. Grrr...

They look cool. I hope they exist as non-foils too (Wishful thinking; don't shoot me down).

I never said he died. I know he survived, but there's no evidence to prove any case that Teferi died after the events in Time Spiral. It's possible he could return is what I'm saying.

reads True-Heart Duelist

Ok, so what's embalm?

reads Embalm, then sees the zombie token

I want my mummy...

Said on Baral or Talrand?...


I'm also going to try out Baral. Like the article I linked said, for that 4 mana you use to cast Talrand, you can cast Baral, and have 2 mana open for a Counterspell, Disallow, or something.

I confess: I'm a mage (ok, I may have some and/or in me), but I hate Jace. The only thing I like about him is the sweet book promo he got (Jace Beleren). As a matter of fact, I really hate the attention planeswalkers are getting these days. I prefer the old days when the focus was on legendary creatures instead (Weatherlight Crew, Kamahl, Glissa, etc.).

To make matters worse, the Gatewatch exists. As much as I want to read the stories, I have to contend with this shift, which is constantly annoying. Personally, I'd return to Ravnica and go to Vryn first, then we kill him, and then we restore Teferi and make him the poster-child (his head's off, but there's no way to confirm his death).

Linkdude74: In that case, no wonder Wizards printed Paradox Engine.

Said on Baral or Talrand?...


TBH, I'd say Baral. Talrand dies to a stiff breeze, while Our Lord Chief makes instants and sorceries cheaper to cast. I'm not going the combo route, but this article explains the comparison (with a bonus comparison to Origins Jace).

Besides, Ajani "won" that battle. He had the Maelstrom to tip the battle in his favor. There's no such thing on Amonkhet, so it's a definite loss.

...also, you can't have Nahiri without Obby (who got slapped with a hedron by her), Sorin (see SOI), and Ugin all at the same time. And Nicky won't be there.

March 27, 2017 8:37 a.m.

That Archfiend is screaming to be slapped into every Vhati il-Dal deck ever.

March 27, 2017 8:26 a.m.

Wasn't Grasp of Fate bought out too?

March 23, 2017 2:10 p.m.

I have a theory: What if the design is like this because of the holofoil stamp?

On a regular split card, if a rare, it would mean that there would need to be 2 stamps. By designing "split" cards this way, it saves Wizards from the problem of having to do it twice on one card. Thoughts?
