50% Timmy, 30% Johnny, 20% Spike ... and 100% Vorthos

I started out back in Revised, playing mostly Gruul (way before Gruul was even a thing). I still have my favorite deck from then, with a bunch of well-played cards like Lightning Bolt , Kird Ape , Orcish Lumberjack , and Craw Wurm ... plus a Taiga I really wish I'd had the sense to sleeve.

I was away from Magic for a loooooooong time though, until michael921 convinced me to attend a Two-Headed Giant match at the Dragons of Tarkir prerelease. I selected a Kolaghan pack, cracked a surprisingly solid deck, had an absolute blast, and haven't spent a day without Magic since! As an aside, the prerelease experience was awesome ... I think it's the best way to introduce (or re-introduce) someone to Magic EVER.

I mostly play Modern, but I also enjoy Limited (especially Sealed), Commander, and Standard. I enjoy just about any deck that's got Red ... Izzet, Gruul, Grixis, and Naya are my favorite color combos so far.

Idk about the Plane itself, but I love Naya colors :-)

I'd rec' a Token theme ... some of my favorite Naya Commanders ( Rith, the Awakener and Hazezon Tamar ) worked very well with that as a theme. It's maybe like you said, that the denizens revere huge Creatures ... so a huge Creature that makes more worshipers seems quite on-flavor.

In case it might help, my favorite way to pick themes is to check the available Commanders in those colors and see what theme(s) they suggest. If nothing else, we know there's already enough support for them in those colors to make a decent EDH deck. Here are the Naya ones ...

Good luck (and good skill) with the design!

Welcome to Modern!

What kind of budget do you have?

Also, have you played Spirits before/are you sure you like the playstyle? If so, cool! If not, I'd strongly rec' proxying up the deck first and playing some games with friends/pick-up games at your LGS. It just rots to drop a ton of money on a deck and then find out it's not really for you. I like MTGpress, but there are a bunch of great options.

Anyways, to actually answer your question ...

LOVE the concept of a Rat card! I like the idea of her as colorless too ... though maybe with multiple colored activated abilities (kind of like General Tazri ). Unblockable unless opp spends a ton of mana to "notice" her maybe? It's kind of too bad Teyo's a Planeswalker, since I'd love to see the two of them with the Partner ability in EDH ...

Thanks for sharing this; I had totally missed it on the mothership for some reason.

It starts a little before the Ravnica book, but pretty much parallels it. It feels kinda like they "zoomed" in on Rat for this story, which is really interesting ... for example, we get more of Teyo's backstory in the novel but less of Rat's.

It will be interesting to see where they go with future Magic Stories, but I'm making no assumptions about anything after the next one (which like you say, will almost certainly be the second part of this one).

In addition to ToolmasterOfBrainerd's 'puts:

The nut draws are absolutely nutty, but the deck is inconsistent, doesn't mul' well (even with London mul'), and it's trivial for any color to hate out. "The End is Nigh For Modern" is a GROSS overstatement :-D

It's in the regular cards too. In general, just go to the card page to see what set name to use, and then click the View All button to see the images.

Oh, I see what you mean now ... cool! You're right about not really using Green (well, except for the early ramp), and something like Craterhoof could be bonkers. I'll give it a hard look; thanks!
