yes jon, we already knew that.
he asked me what rares i had to trade and i told him about my awesome lotleth troll that can regenerate for one black mana
Last year we saw the return of slivers in M14, and while exciting to see them it wasn’t exciting to SEE them. The artwork for M14 slivers showed far more humanoid almost predator looking creatures, not like slivers we knew and loved. A lot of people complained about it and Wizards (eventually) agreed the change was too much.
M15 spoilers come around and….SLIVER HIVE SHOWS NORMAL SLIVERS!!!! Oh boy! no more predator dumbness!
…….and then i watched all of the spoilers until they all were shown today
Out of the creature cards ONE looks like a sliver and that is Sliver Hivemind (which SHOULD look like a sliver). The rest of the “slivers” are ridiculous, it’s like they lied to us. Mix of M14 and past slivers my ass, with these new ones we have great hits such as “kraken thing”, “sexy lady”, “the grinch”, “bearded dragon”, and don’t forget “muscrat thing with a scorpion stinger for a hand”!
SERIOUSLY? one sixth of the creatures look like they should, and the other five sixths make M14 slivers look cool….
A series of Nyx themed enchantment lands I came up with. I love the idea thematically, and honestly I am surprised we haven’t seen enchantments lands yet. (Journey into Nyx maybe?) If we do see them, I doubt they will have basic land types, and I am sure they will have a custom frame, but I love the non-basic, typed, cycle in shadowmoor, and I like the idea of seeing what a forest in the land of the gods would be. The flavor on these could maybe be developed further though, the names are just placeholders. Coming up with thematic abilities that aren’t broken on lands was difficult. The forest is my favorite, capturing the hunt nicely. I think the swamp also captures the underworld feel, and blue feels good for Thassa’s domain.
Red wand white I were a bit less happy with. I was reluctant to put burn on land though it might be thematically correct here, so I want with the idea of forging and tempering as they could relate to the hand. I am not exactly sure what Helios’ domain would do thematically. His support of the mortal world seemed like a good idea for an effect, so that is how creature buffing came in.
The big weaknesses here are obviously the lack of an immediate effect, coming into play tapped and being susceptible to enchantment removal. Your opponent will get a shot at sorcery removal before you can get an effect, even if you have the requisite devotion.
there wont be enchantment lands, mark rosewater said it was very unlikely since artifact lands went so wrong….
When everyone but you is playing Blue
That is awesome Xx
winter orb ult? thats hilarious……
Went to the LGS to hang out and kill some time, and it turned out some one there was having a birthday party draft! No entrance fee, official DCI event, but the birthday boy got all the cards in the end.
ended up going 3-1 with my Black Blue Red deck (drafted all of RTR) and won myself 2 packs as 4th place!
2 free packs are always great!
i find it funny how i never once pulled a single shock land in all of RTR, yet i have pulled 3 of the 5 scry lands so far in theros and 2 of the 3 walkers….and thoughtseize…
and ive definitely opened less than 20 theros packs and well over 50 RTR…
Fat pack rare/foil pulls. Half decent fat pack if I do say so myself
Just saw the hobbit: desolation of smaug
And EVERY time I heard them say thorin’s name I kept thinking “Thorin, lord of innistrad…..”
Then I felt über nerdy and killed myself
