    I hope MM2 is as well-tuned a draft format as MM was.

    Because that was some fantastic drafting.

    Considering that RoE is in the mix now I can't imagine the drafting would get worse.

    Oh lordy, can we please get an R/G Thallid/Defender archetype with Overgrown Battlement, Vent Sentinel, and all those derpy wall-thallids?

    Anyone have a clue what sets mm2 might be based around? Or is it just anything set in the current modern?

    Basically everything from Mirrodin/8th Edition through New Phyrexia/M12(?). Not sure what the actual Core Set cutoff is, but I know that New Phyrexia is the last non-Core.

    If their phrasing was "through Scars of Mirrodin Block", then that would presumably mean M11 is the last Core Set, which lets them include the Titans (and Fauna Shaman/Baneslayer for shits and giggles) but no Phantasmal Image or Grim Lavamancer.

    Either way it's great, especially if they add in some of the dragon legendaries I missed, cause these are a lot of the card sets that I missed when I went on that 12 year hiatus.

    I'm forced to insist in the opposite direction. Hopefully they are ditching the useless(In Modern) legendary Dragon Cycle for something like the Phyrexian Legends. Then at least more Elesh Norns would be good.

    So any one have any more info on these free phantom points we are supposed to be getting to do a free holiday cube draft or one of the flash back drafts?

    Or am I totally stroking out and imagined reading that?

    Regarding the Planar Chaos cycle, those are $1 rares and aren't terribly useful in draft. With the ZEN fetchlands available, they might try to push wedges, but I think that would be a mistake a few months after Khans.

    If you really want them for Commander or something, just pay $5 and get the whole set.

    If you're talking about the Kamigawa dragon cycle, they already reprinted those in the last MM. It would be disappointing to see them again.

    What I could see happening is a BG infect archetype with Skithiryx as a mythic.

    And you know what would be hilarious but I don't actually expect this to happen? Nicol Bolas reprint. The creature, not the planeswalker. :)

    Was there ever a new Magic thread? I think it's preview season, but I'm not seeing any enthusiasm in here.

    I think it's mostly in the SE++ thread.

    Yeah, the SE++ thread is flipping out over the new cards.
