Edgar Markov Discussion

enpc on Jund vs Mardu

Jund will generally be better, by simple virtue of the fact that it has access to green which provides ramp. It also has good support for creature tutors, which white lacks. The only caveat to this comment is that Edgar Markov exists as a card.

TypicalTimmy on Personal Play moments you are …

It was down to the three of us. I was playing Iroas, God of Victory. There was an Edgar Markov and something else, I don't recall.

I told the player who wasn't running Markov that if he full swings into Markov, Markov has two options: Take it and die, or block.

If he blocks, I swing and finish the job. Markov loses and I'm left wide open, so you win the game.

He agrees and swings full.

Markov blocks.

Facts...Innistrad is the block that resonates most with me...also, super stoked to get some more Vampires. They are gar and away my favorite tribe. Glad i bought the Edgar Markov pre-con when it dropped. Hopefully about to get lots of new goodies for it. :p

Hoping for some good Devils for Zurzoth, Chaos Rider , plus a little more Angel & Devil tribal.

I think we can expect at least one Eldrazi card, but hopefully the flavor will be more Lovecraft than Lovecraft Lite. On that note, I hope that there'll be no Dragons in either set; they feel pretty strongly out of place in a horror setting (they were shoehorned in because they're the most popular creature type). Big monsters have a place in Innistrad, but it should be more like Gitrog or even the thing from Nightbird's Clutches .

And yes, seeing as the Markovs were hit hard by Nahiri ( Declaration in Stone ), with Edgar Markov possibly being killed off-screen, I think it's fair to say that it'll be a political marriage between them and the Voldaren. From a Watsonian perspective, Sorin seems less likely seeing as he's hated by his fellows for making Avacyn, although fighting side by side with them against Nahiri might have led to him being forgiven. Maybe an entirely new Markov character will be introduced as the family's heir?

If they do Innistrad commander precons, will Midnight Hunt and Crimson Vow each get their own complete set of four-five? I wouldn't expect so. I'd expect something like MH gets Werewolf tribal and Spirit tribal, and CV gets Vampire tribal ( Edgar Markov , anyone?) and Human tribal, but I've been surprised before.

Has there been any announcement for this?

DarkMagician on What is "fair" magic?

2 months ago

griffstick I think all magic is fair magic with the exception of things that absolutely can not be interacted with. So currently my list of unfair magic cards is comprised solely of the 2017 Commanders that have the Eminence ability ( Edgar Markov , The Ur-Dragon , Inalla, Archmage Ritualist and Arahbo, Roar of the World )

  • Lore is tough. IMO, in a singleton format, I tend to imagine that the player is an all-powerful & unknown god (not a mere planeswalker) & the player is crafting a story with the cards they play.. Not even so much like an arena style beatdown with all these dissident characters (as that does not make sense to me) more like you are an invisible hand that are setting events to lead to your supremacy on a given plane... All that being said, lore doesn't matter to me because any game could have its' own amazing lore

  • amazing art to me is art that tells a story without needing a bunch of spikes, filigree, or garbage action poses. One of my favorite commander arts is Edgar Markov it tells you so much about that character without overstating or action-posing. Though I don't actually play Edgar.

  • power level is pretty subjective. I usually play a strategy that makes me happy & slowly refine a deck until it can kind of play up to the competition. I play (& win) with Thantis, the Warweaver quite a bit. Forced combat is not "high power level" - but labors of love can get there over time.
