    General (BLB, BLC) Bloomburrow Testing/Includes Thread

    Tempted by: Kitsa, Otterball Elite Jackdaw Savior Suspect the latter won't happen. My very limited experience with Offspring also makes me wonder if I want Iridescent Vinelasher because it genuinely does seem pretty good, but cheap aggressive black creatures have burned me far too many times...

    Trip report from the first weekend of IRL cube qualifiers: So many people signed up on Saturday that they had to cap the signups on Sunday. So it looks like a rousing success! I don't know how many people it'll act as a "gateway drug" into MTGO cube much less IRL cube for, but hey, more cube is...

    3-0 a prelim, and then 6-0 a 64-person league, and then 3-0 the final draft... ...to get a flight to Vegas and a seat in an 8-person IRL rotisserie keep what you draft powered Cube. Gotta admit, they know how to hook people.

    returning to this, they got me again in the exact same way: Coiling Rebirth 3BB Sorcery Gift a card (You may promise an opponent a gift as you cast this spell. If you do, they draw a card before its other effects.) Return target creature card from your graveyard to the battlefield. Then, if a...

    This is the fourth Standard-legal set in a row with a white three drop creature I've been into! Aven Interrupter being WW did sink it. Delaney, Streetwise Lookout is still cool but not for me, you know? Sanguine Evangelist played well in actual Standard, but... well, it's no Blade Splicer but...

    It's not your best creature, it's the best creature - you can steal one of theirs too! If I have to pay the fifth mana for my Wrath that's the kind of upside I want.

    can't believe it's been 25 years since Psychatog really feels like less than 30 years since Carlos Romao won Worlds 50 years ago with Psychatog oh well I guess that's how memories fade over 100 years, but we'll always have Psychatog

    Land Rorix getting more and more upgrades. It's still no Bull Cerodon but being one cheaper is real.

    It is really good with Wildfire. I find myself saying that less and less about cards these days, so it's at least tempting. (give us more stuff good with Jokulhaups at my exact power level, WotC. you can do it.)

    Just a big ol' idiot, but hey, sometimes you want one of those. We've come a long way from Rumbling Slum, I guess.

    Sets [DMH] Duskmourn: House of Horror

    When FUT came out, "the eye of Ugin" was like, he's blessed you! you can see the otherwise invisible (read: colorless) stuff! that's why this card has invisible fire on it! it's from the fuuuuuuture! Then several years later, they used the name "Eye of Ugin" to refer to an actual, physical...

    Sets [DMH] Duskmourn: House of Horror

    Ghostfire and sure, they retconned the literal definition of "Eye of Ugin", but "the eye of Ugin, the Spirit Dragon ... see his fiery breath" is really damn close to "Spear of the Void Dragon" and 100% original WotC IP from 2007 edit: also I wish they'd do more art like that. that person has...

    ...how did we have a Duskmourne thread before a Bloomburrow thread? Anyway. Bloomburrow release date is August 2, 2024. Each color pair has an animal type associated with it, which we now know: thanks to these: This forum got an invitational card (in name only): while some of us are just...

    Sets [DMH] Duskmourn: House of Horror

    I gotta admit, normally flavor doesn't bother me, but ...I was not expecting The Ring in a normal Standard-legal new-WotC-IP Magic set and it kind of feels jarring. Even though I'm totally fine with Chainsaw so I don't know where my line is. (now, that said, this card's sweet.)

    Sets [FDN] Foundations (a new Core Set)

    I wonder if they will use a legendary creature's name (but not title) instead? They're willing to do it to save space - see Phlage, Titan of Fire's Fury which uses the shortened form of its name the first time it's written - and they already do it for the second+ reference on the card - see...

    Sets [FDN] Foundations (a new Core Set)

    On the PT stream today, they announced a new Core Set, to be released this year and remain Standard-legal until "at least 2029": They showed five cards - Llanowar Elves, Omniscience, Day of Judgment, and a pair of pretty sweet ones: (...also, all enchantments will have the "Nyx Frame"...

    Having played the format on Arena a bunch, I underestimated how easy it can be to trigger Sneaky Snacker... so now I'm reconsidering all kinds of things like Improbable Alliance that aren't even in this set!

    Trip report from a few games on the Magic Online beta! Only cards that nobody's mentioned yet. Desmond Miles would be so sweet if he looked at something broader like "all outlaws". I have no idea what anyone will do with Leonardo da Vinci but that second ability is my kind of nonsense. Good...
