Re: What is going in your decks from C20 and Ikoria?

—snip- I didn't know so many people played Mono-U sea creatures! My deck used to be Thassa and mono-U but Arixmethes forced it into Simic. I figured most became Simic at that point. I'd have loved to keep Thassa as the commander but had to adapt to UG. I do admire the addition of green though. I'm ...

Re: Your favourite "big dumb fatties" generals

Thassa, God of the Sea is my favorite big, dumb bois commander. She does it with style . Agreed. When my sea monster deck was still Thassa I loved her making creatures unblockable and the scry keeping the big CMC creatures tucked away until later in the game when they could be cast. The draw fixing...

Re: [IKO] Tokens (for C20 too)

Love the variety of kraken tokens. My favorite will always be the 9/9 from BNG but I love having that, and two 8/8 krakens, one with hexproof.

Re: What is going in your decks from C20 and Ikoria?

Sea-Dasher Octopus Ominous Seas For my Thrasios sea creatures deck. And of course I'll need a Kraken token from the set as well. Frankly two cards is impressive to be added to this deck, which is limited in room. I tend to be highly selective at this point, so I'm very pleased with these additions ...

Re: [IKO] Full Image Gallery Up

Although I don't like the set or plane overall personally (not for me, but there are good cards here) I have to hand it to the set for introducing two cards I actually enthusiastically anticipate. Ominous Seas and Sea-Dasher Octopus for my Arixmethes deck. I love that they lower the curve on the dec...

Re: Daxos, Blessed by the Sun - Monowhite lifegain

Just dropping in to say I love your choice of Commander. Daxos is so neat and I love his new card and art. I do recommend Heliod, Sun-Crowned for theme purposes, and because it is genuinely an amazing card that facilitates your goal. It's a Sun Titan target as well.

Re: New set

Although I love the card I'm in Ominous seas, I really do not like the aesthetic theme or design of this set at all. It's really not for me but I don't mind admitting that may be for others. I got what I wanted this year so I really can't complain and just look for the cards that I personally would ...

Re: Thrasios's Expedition - Quest For Arixmethes

Update: - Tatyova, Benthic Druid + Medomai's Prophecy Honestly, Tatyova is amazing and synergies exceptionally with my commander. But I feel she deserves her own dedicated deck, and comes down a bit too late to be a win-more card for me than a real investment. At 5 mana, I am often debating between ...

Re: JumpStart

No sea monsters or Theros or Jace no care Themes range from the familiar ("Garruk") to the curious ("Doctor") If they have a Garruk theme, they'll have a Jace theme. There's a strong chance of some kind of "Sea Monster" theme (krakens? Whelming Wave ?) I would suspect themes that could tie into The...

I don't like the constellation art but in the event I decide I want these in the future it's best to just get them now and save myself a future hassle. I'm happy they chose these gods but I agree the marble treatment is far superior I got them anyway though just to have. I'll play with the originals...

Re: Places to visit in the Multiverse

and lastly. Why run if a Theros god sees you? Is it mentioned in the story that theros gods now recognize planeswalkers, and are hunting them down? I'm curious of this. I've read enough Greek mythology (and Magic's story) to know that getting involved with gods rarely ends well. See: Elspeth, Xenag...

Re: Thrasios's Expedition - Quest For Arixmethes

Updated to accommodate Theros Beyond Death cards. Sadly, this meant cutting Dark Depths. I am seeking ways to hopefully add that back in at some point. I would love to also play Medomai's Prophecy. But there are more on-theme cards that took priority.

Re: January 2020 Ban List Update - No Changes

I don't think anything warrants a ban at this time, including Thassa's Oracle. Give the card a chance. Like Vannifar, it may just be an overstated influence. The only card I'd like to see go at this time is Cyclonic Rift and perhaps Oko.

Re: Which do you like more?

Kroxa. Theros card, but also very unique. I didn't like that Bolas's flip condition just involved mana, instead of a condition. I like the card, but it's more fun to reanimate Kroxa through spells or Escape and I love the Theros theme of getting giant creatures for low CMC with a condition (the gods...

Re: Secret Lair: Year of the Rat

The pack rat art is so cute. I love the Kamigawa theme. Not feeling the timing so close to Theros though. Nothing can compete with Theros for me so I'll have to pass on this one for now but may get a pack rat copy for the art eventually

I thought it was cheesy that the summary skimmed over the "fights" elspeth and calix had, as well as her dialog with Daxos. I wonder why this is the route they chose for the story.

It seems to me Heliod will be humbled and forced to carry our humiliating tasks and learn responsibility before being permitted to return to nyx. I am happy he isn't killed but he deserves this fate as hitting his pride and teaching him a lesson will be adequate and crushing for him
