    Now I kind of wonder if they could make Dethrone creatures for a Standard legal set. Might be interesting.

    Also, am I correct in thinking that if Marchesa dies with a +1/+1 counter, she brings herself back? It doesn't say "another creature."

    There's several creatures and enchantments that just put a 1/1 counter on something as it comes into play. This is not hard to break.

    theros storyline
    "elspeth succeeds then chumps it to a jerk at the end" is so narratively unsatisfying in a world themed around a mythology filled with "so and so comes back from the dead" that i have utterly no faith that she's gone for good

    i presume that if they ever do a Return To Theros the plotline will involve elspeth returning and presumably replacing heliod in the pantheon
    Doug Beyer has said on his blog multiple times that dead is dead in MTG

    i haven't read the books so i dont know if there's some kind of dumb theros magic, but for now i'm saying that she's dunzo

    Theros has
    an entire race that is beings who have basically come back from the dead

    and several cards about coming back from the dead

    if there would ever be an exception to that rule that allowed elspeth to come back as a fully functional version of herself it would be in theros

    they could even metzen it a little and have her be corrupted or some shit
    Apparently that's what happens to Daxos, which may or may not be related to her death

  • nightmarennynightmarenny Registered User regular
    With news about Elspeth I'm really hoping
    Kiora won her duel with Thassa. Kick those jack-ass Gods teeth in.

    I'm sure the books make it easier but the more I hear the more trouble I have seeing Xanagos as a bad guy. What did he even do but become a God? All the reasons I've heard that Elspeth had to kill him for was stuff that Heliod was doing.

    REMINDER THAT PRO TOUR: JOURNEY INTO NYX IS THIS WEEKEND

    The format is booster draft, and then Block Constructed for the top 8 (i think is how it works)

    I'm deffo gonna watch this one, draft is neat as heck and I wanna see what Block Constructed looks like for this block.

    So yeah I just found out they're holding Pro Tour where I live in Atlanta

    And by that I mean across the street from my office.

    As in, like, I am looking outside my window right now at the Cobb Galleria Center.

    So how would Marchesa work with x cost ETB creatures (e.g. Primordial Hydra, etc.) Would they immediately come back as 0/0 creatures and then immediately die again? That would actually be a huge boon to ETB/ETG effects.

  • KwoaruKwoaru Confident Smirk Flawless Golden PecsRegistered User regular
    yeah it would come in as a 0/0 then die

    Okay wait. Wait a minute.

    This... this makes anything with Unleash effectively invincible as well, doesn't it.

    uh yes I guess it would with that legendary out, because
    The unleash ability applies no matter where the creature is entering the battlefield from.

    i presume that if they ever do a Return To Theros the plotline will involve elspeth returning and presumably replacing heliod in the pantheon

    theros book
    this seems most likely to me, and also the coolest way to move forward from it

    because while I understand not wanting elspeth to die period, having her become a god in a future set would be a cool way to bring the character back in a way that also involved progression for her

    and as a genuine question, because I don't have an exhaustive knowledge of it or anything: does greek myth have stories where people come back from the dead in ways that are actually what they want? The examples I'm thinking of involve dead people being turned into spiders, or into constellations, or demigods, or yeah you can come back to life NOT your bf turned around too soon, so sad

    also one of the latter uncharted realms has ashiok trying to turn the idea of a city into a god, after having been granted invisibility from all the gods' sight--i dunno if they're involved in the book at all, but I'd imagine there will be a pretty major shake-up in the pantheon when/if mtg returns to theros

    The end of Round 2 was just incredible.

    The reaction of the commentators when Dictate hit the table was just... wonderful

    Someone on reddit just referred to it as "Marchesa, the Blue Shell"

    and I am delighted by that
