>> No.74669108

In some ways, yes, but landfall usually wins by amassing a large number of triggers in a single turn that puts them over the edge. Hard to do that when your ramp is invalidated and you're stuck with the 1 land a turn.

>> No.74669218

It should've been white with Scry instead of draw.

>> No.74669244


It needed to say you can't play lands with that name anymore this turn and/or specify if they play any land on a turn other than their own. Because while it dampens permanent ramp it does nothing to temporary with non-tap lands since they can tap a land before bouncing it.

>> No.74669345

would lands with the same name do anything against 3-color decks though? I feel like "if a land would enter the battlefield under an opponent's control and they have already had another land enter the battlefield under their control this turn, exile it instead" is the correct fix

Based on what was said, it sounds like they're going to do a bit more of exploring/fleshing out the history of Zendikar prior to the Eldrazi showing up.

It seems like they're going with the route of, "Kor used to have an advanced civilization and control of the Roil, then the Eldrazi showed up and fucked our shit up."

I could have sworn that the Roil was just the physical manifestation of the power/soul of the plane, and the reason it was so fucking violent and crazy previously was because of the Eldrazi and the plane's leylines being fucked with.

If Nahiri is going to go the route of, "I have to kill the Roil to allow Zendikar to heal and the Kor to survive," then Nissa is probably going to be going the route of, "the Roil needs to exist to allow Zendikar to heal, now that it's free of the Eldrazi influence."

I think Jace is there simply because he wants to do some more research on the Eldrazi and is looking to go through the ruins of the Eye of Ugin to figure out what the reason behind their overall existence is, and if blowing up Kozilek and Ulamog was a good thing or not.

spell trample is literally just trample on spells (rg)
keyword counters were five color ad each was just a keyword made as a counter

One with the Stars was a riff on a staple blue/white effect

impulse draw is literally just a draw twist

Sagas and vehicles were the really NEW NEW shit and both were leaned in white.

MTG is a game based on twists on formula. How many ever keywords are just (normally you cant, but now you CAN?) how many set keywords are just kicker? How many set themes are just taking something in every or most sets and just doing a lot of it?

Hell how often do they repeat draft themes? How many times is the basic shock/pacify/draw/counter/kill/ramp suite of cards from alpha just recycled?

MTG is the drum n bass of games ,an entire genre built around remixing the same song.

>> No.74676316

Both Sorin and Nahiri wanted to blow up the Eldrazi but didn't know how. Ugin showed up and said, "we can't destroy these things, but with your help we can imprison them."

Sorin agreed because he thought that one day they'd come to Innistrad and wreck his plane. Nahiri agreed because she was a (recently Sparked) Oldwalker compared to Sorin and Ugin and didn't want to see any more planes get destroyed.

It wouldn't surprise me if they do a bit more retconning here and say that Nahiri built the device she recovered in the trailer with her Oldwalker powers, and that was how she altered the leylines on Zendikar to imprison the Eldrazi. Only now she's going to use the device to imprison/kill the Roil.

Modern horizons was a blast minus a small handful of pushed bullshit
Core 2020 is the best core set in ages
Eldraine was great minus oko, loved the draft format
And core 2021 was fine
While the last 2 years have been a shitshow, there have been some great things done within this time and I think all the negative feelings towards garbage like hoggak or veil really clouded how people felt about some of the stuff done
Also as for theros beyond boring, the set's worst crime isn't the 4 busted combo it created and uro, but being one of the most vapid worlds ever, evoking less then zero emotion.
