    they're pushing gideon as some sort of ethnic, maybe they're trying for more representation

    Ajani is Obi-wan kenobi! How is he not popular!


    Also I played eldrazi and taxes 4-1 tonight. Deck's real gud. It outraced aggro decks. It out controlled infect. It did jund better than jund. It felt good all night.
    Also I flipped a flickerwisp to bounce a bridge and swing lethal the turn before dying to 4 copies of The Rack. We were both shocked as hell

    I don't want to give up merfolk, but damn this deck is a blast. Team aether vial

    I figured Ajani's problem is that he isn't pure white

    And also a cat person instead of an ape person

  • PinfeldorfPinfeldorf Realtor Santa ClaritaRegistered User regular
    Is there a difference between oxidation and oxidization? I think oxidization means fire and chemical reactions where oxidation is rusting. Do I have it backwards? Are they the same damn thing? What are birds, even?

    White probably has the most boring planeswalkers, with the possible exception of blue.

    Even red has more depth.

    Generally speaking from what Maro has mentioned about WotC focus testing, players usually want human faces on their characters. The dragons are the exception to the rule. This is why even when you have say someone meant to be kinda spooky and unnerving like Ashiok, you still have Ashiok as visibly humanoid from the nose-ish down.

    A card from the Custom Magic Cards subreddit this last week is very good, and has become the most upvoted submission to that subreddit of all time.

    The submitter's argument for "Red should like legendaries" pretty much had me nodding and going yeah okay I'm in.
    I always like finding new design space for Red. Lately I've been thinking about 'legendary matters' as a Red theme. I like this for a few reasons:
    1) I think it makes sense that Red would be the color most interested in fame and famous people. Every color likes the famous representatives of their own color, but Red seems most likely to like fame itself. Other colors might all pursue fame as a means to an end, but for the Red character fame might be an end in itself. Think of the gladiator who fights for the thrill of combat, the roar of the crowd, and the adoration of her admirers. Red loves exciting stories, public adoration, and the mystique associated with famous people. (This is also a good way to showcase a non-angry side of Red.)
    2) There's currently no card type or supertype that Red loves more than the other colors. White, Green, and Blue all have their special domains (creatures lands and artifacts respectively). Black has no particular favorite card type either, but that's not so bad because Black is king of the graveyard. Red doesn't seem to have as much of a particular domain as do the other colors.
    EDIT: 3) Red lags behind the other colors in EDH. If Red had a legendary-matters theme, it would get a much needed boost in that format.

    Black is king of the graveyard.

    Common and justifiable misconception. Black is king of creatures in the graveyard, but green interacts with the graveyard far more readily.

    Which is yet another reason why green is so overpowered in Commander.

    yeah, the graveyard is another place that red doesn't get much action compared to the other colors. White can sometimes resurrect and gets back enchantments, blue gets back instants/sorceries, black gets back creatures, green gets back lands, creatures, and everything. Red occasionally gets to give things flashback and dig up artifacts.

    If they do this I demand they print a conditional red board clear called "Legend Rule" that wipes everything apart from target legendary creature.
    Or something similar.

    that'd be pretty cool. something like

    "Prophecy Fulfilled - 3RR
    Sorcery

    Choose target legendary creature. Destroy all other creatures."

    You'd need a legend on the board to cast it at all, and unlike Duneblast, it needs to live through resolution.
