    Yeah it would be gloriously terrible and I'm here for it.

    Rather than a prequel, I see that kind of scenario playing out as the Gatewatch going to Vryn to hold a memorial service for Jace, like they did for Gideon, and getting caught up in some local crisis while they're there.

    okay so Connive, the ability of the primarily Blue faction is pretty clearly just Loot+ right? Draw/discard, and if you toss a non-land, you get a +1/+1 counter

    it took me a bit longer to notice that Blitz, the ability of the primarily Red faction is actually Rummage, but with a bit more of a twist. You're still effectively tossing the creature to the yard and drawing a new card to replace it, but you get to have the creature briefly to attack/get ETB triggers, and Jaxis' ability is a furthe twist on it - Rummage, but you get a temporary token copy of a creature and then draw when it dies

    edit: heck, you can rummage immediately with Jaxis if you want - just target her with her own ability, sacrifice the copy to the legend rule, draw

    it's kicker

    jaxis specifically says "another" and thus cannot target herself

    oops, crud

    I still really like her

    Sorcery speed and need to discard means she won't be capable of quite the same broken stuff as Fable of the Mirror Breaker, but there's potential there I think

    the Briefcase has cool flavor and also fits nicely into my Path to the World Tree deck. Also nice to see another non-token Treasure.

    Cool effect that I'm not quite sure how to best take advantage of. At worst it's an expensive O-Ring that can attack, could be good.

    Not sure if this is powerful enough, but it could work in a control shell to easily play a finisher while holding counterspells.

    I always think it's weird when people make a new thread before the old thread is dead, because sometimes threads go to like 103 pages or whatever, and it's not really our responsibility to be decided when a thread closes.

    It's done at the request of the mods. Something about how threads that exceed 100 pages slow down the forum's database, as I recall.

    People will sometimes procrastinate until a mod officially locks the thread because creating a new thread can come with some unwanted obligations. You're expected to create a detailed and informative OP, a largely archaic tradition in the age of Wikipedia. You also have to keep the thread title updated with the latest events. You need to take care of your health, because if you ever die, the thread will be stuck with an outdated title forever.

    But rest assured, creating a new thread after the old one has surpassed the 100 page count is not only permitted, it's encouraged.

    Actually the thread database issue was fixed long ago, before the transition to vanilla. People just do it now out of tradition.

    To the moon with this one, the spooky moon that still has that space monster in it right?

    Did that come up in the recent Innistrad blocks? I haven't kept up with the story

    Emrakul did not show up in the most recent Innistrad blocks, no. As far as we know she's still in there.
