Re: "Quirks That Define Your EDH Style"

For me it's gotta be a mixture of a few things: 1. I like HUGE chonks of mana. Preferably with lands rather than artifacts or creatures. As a consequence of this all bar one of my decks contain at least the colour green. 2. I prefer winning by turning sideways rather than any other method. 3. I like...

Re: What's your most unusual commander and/or deck?

For me it would have to be either my mono green Patron of the Orochi deck that tapdances for ridiculous amounts of mana ( Nyxbloom Ancient is an amazing recent addition for the deck) to spend on activated abilities gets odd looks as they don't immediately notice the effect on patron is symmetrical. ...

Re: Scarab God and Locust God

additional thoughts. I wonder why Bolas did not bring the Locust and Scarab gods when he went to war against Ravnica. Surely, having two additional gods would make his forces stronger. Or maybe Bolas is confident that his eternal army is already enough to win the war against the guilds of ravnica? ...

Re: [THB] Nyxbloom Ancient Command Zone Preview

To make it crazier mana reflection doubles the mana but cost 6 mana this cost 7 so only 1 more stinkin mana more than doubling it takes just 1 more mana to triple it wow. I mean the one difference here is that Nyxbloom Ancient is a creature (and only a 5/5 for 7 mana) which makes it a hell of a lot...

Re: [THB] Vandal Preview: Red Minotaur

Guardian of Skofos' Labyrinth 3R Creature - Minotaur Warrior {1} - This creature gets +1/-1 until end of turn. Whenever another creature becomes the target of a land you control named Skofos' Labyrinth, you may have this creature fight that creature. 3/4 The question now is, what does this Labyrint...

Re: [THB] Thryx, the Sudden Storm

I know reception to Thryx, the Sudden Storm in some parts hasn't been great because it's not a Kraken but the elemental tribal player in me wants this bad. discount on mana doublers and making them uncounterable is icing on a very sweet cake.

Re: End of 2019 Sheldon AMA

Hi Sheldon hope everything is going well with you!

As a fan of movies and TV shows I'm looking forward to seeing what Netflix does with the Magic the Gathering series. Is there a particular moment in Magic's history you'd like to see or character you'd like to be referenced?

Re: Open Mystery Booster thread

The more I see of the cards themselves the more I like it. To me it's a cool way of doing a chaos draft without trying to organise getting all the old sets so you don't have multiples whilst drafting. The playtester cards are somewhat silly but there are ideas I wouldn't mind becoming legal cards in...

Walgreens, that's funny (on one of the pics, a page of cards in the background has an out of stock label in one of thee slots, definately a deealer or somethinng) However, Sagas being back is the best thing. Showcases were for the fairy tales so makes sense there are none. Showcases will be present...

Re: Commander legends speculation

Give me Taysir of damn Rabiah at last! Lol, I just want more cool stuff but I'd also appreciate more weirder Planeswalker designs (like the demonic leviathan that Nicol Bolas once faced off against) than human variants. As for creatures give me huge deep dives into magic lore. Whilst I'm aware of mo...

Re: Theros: Beyond Death Leak

It's a shame the guy didn't reveal everything. You can see in the first picture there is a creature (I assume) with P/T 5/6 in the top left corner that we never see in the subsequent pics.

But the design team has always been against fetchlands in standard ever since Tarkir block. If anything I was hoping ZEN3 was going to print the enemy colours of the battle land cycle.

Re: MTGNexus Community Draft I - WAR, Player 2

Hm. I know we should be looking for more Planeswalkers but Teyo, the Shieldmage Doesn't seem useful, exciting or even good for our deck. I vote for Kiora's Dambreaker.
