    The New Capenna soundtrack is officially out and is a crazy bargain. It's twice the size of the Kamigawa one because every track with vocals also has an instrumental version, but still the same price for the album if you're like me and prefer to do that instead of streaming.

    So from my preliminary drafts and sealed (some better than others) is that W/G has the strongest commons with Jeweled Thief, Civil Servant, and Inspiring Overseer. Also that enchantment and artifact removal is pretty important, which makes Citizen's crowbar that much better.

    Turns out being able to get 4 Murders is still strong. Who knew?

    Can't have any legitimate businessmen mucking up your game plans, that's for sure. (Witness Protection is such a good removal piece, seriously)

    Yah, Brokers and Cabaretti can build some pretty chunky boards if you can't disrupt them. Riveteers can Jund things out, but it feels like Maestros are a bit lacking in the limited formats.

    maestros and obscura definitely feel like the more "technical" of the playstyles

    i'm reminded of how much b/g had an early lead in winrate in the first few weeks of kamigawa limited but was like maybe 5th best if that at the format's end

    Picked up the Obscura precon.

    And fuck. I'm going to end up splitting it into two decks. Kamiz saboteurs and Raffine draw/discard (go wide on tokens, then Raffine converts wide attacks into big creatures as well as digging through my deck... with a bonus of being able to run Halo Fountain, Triskaidekaphile, and Artemsis as alternative win cons if I can't just kill people... though I might stick Artemsis in Kamiz instead. Also I have two copies of Kamiz due to set booster so he'll be in the 99 of Raffine)

    Also, I love just how much good stuff they stuffed in the Obscura deck. Not just Smuggler's Share (utterly ridiculous), but it actually has three board wipes (Dusk//Dawn, Nightmare Unmaking, and all-star Austere Command). So many good mana rocks...

    Also I need a Syr Konrad for Raffine. Pitching creatures for Connive and then burning people and then when I pitch Kozilek they all get nuked for my graveyard shuffling in. Kill my hordes of tokens? That's a beating. Etc. Assuming they can after Archfiend of Ifnir erases their blockers (connive 5 = discard 5 = -5/-5 in counters to all their stuff. It's so dumb).

    Man, I am not having a great time so far with limited. 2 wins total over two sealed, with probably 80% of that time feeling like I'm mana screwed. Maybe I'm just not used to primarily 3 color sets, but even the draft where I thought I had an amazing calibretti deck I only got 4 wins.

    Well now I'm feeling a lot better after a 7-0 draft with an obscura deck that I thought was decent but not great. Turns out flying is still a really good keyword, who knew? Also that new Kracken fucks. Also also rogues gallery is a really nice way to refill your hand after 10 turns or so.

    there's a lot of good fliers in the set and it's possible to pick up quite a few. some people are suggesting that your standard green "destroy an artifact, enchantment, or flier" is maindeckable because of it in this format

    The 2/3 reach in green is close to my pick for top common, even above the 3/3 treasure for 3. Basically every flier in the format dies to it and most can't trade.

    Ok, now that I'm able to sit at my laptop for more than an hour at a time, I have prerelease codes! I have 3* from Neon Dynasty and 7 from New Capenna. Shoot PMs and I'll get them to you as I check my laptop. *@Shadowen already has my 4th one on its way to them.

    EDIT: Man this would be so much easier with the Codes tag. :(

    I'm not sure if it's actually going to work out to be good, but the Jund line of "play Chariot, next turn crew Chariot, casualty Ob, attack with Chariot, have 3 Ob Nixili" is incredibly fun.

    This one was more "grind using Ob Nixilis" but still, totally normal boardstates:

    E: Also, Ob being able to gain two life with a devil is super busted in mirrors. I was at one life before stabilizing and despite my opponent being on the blitz aggro Jund plan, they had zero way of closing out that could get past Ob.

    4 Clarion Spirit
    4 Devilish Valet
    3 Adeline, Resplendent Cathar

    Jammed games with the Cabaretti deck swapping in Jetmir to be the commander and shifting the goad theme out to make more tokens. Very fun to suddenly spawn in bunch of Goblins with a Krenko (Both versions I stuffed into the deck) and then suddenly be swinging for lethal.

    I built Rin & Siri and gave it a test run yesterday. Attacked an opponent with all 7 of my creatures (commander, 3 2/2 cat tokens, Back Market Tycoon, Qasali Slingers, and something else). They thought about it, did some math, and declared no blocks. I activated Windbrisk Heights, cast the Jetmir I had hidden away, got a dog token from R&S to make 9 total creatures and suddenly my opponent was dead. Surprise Jetmir is mean.

    Then the Admiral Beckett Brass player stole him (after putting my team to Sleep) and I had to use R&S to kill my own Jetmir a couple of turns later.

    But not an unfair one cause by himself he doesn't have particular protection, so tons of interaction can disrupt him. Game 2 I couldn't actually win cause the enchantress player threw up a Sphere of Safety and I couldn't find any of my enchantment removal over several turns.

    I would like to repeat how they've brought back so many old mechanics in the commander cards this set. And it's super flavorful on a lot of them.

    Like Lethal Scheme - it's a kill spell with convoke, and the convoking creatures connive.

    Honestly, all of WotC's representation efforts feel very strange/late-stage corporate rainbow marketing.

    Per the author's statements, they killed Nissa/Chandra off due to plans for her as the face of some Netflix adaptation, and he implied what he wrote was more about closing the door on Nissa and less about closing the door on Chandra being bisexual. But then that falls through, and in the Innistrad stories Chandra is all-but-explicitly shown to be crushing on Adeline. Then they confirm an entirely new lesbian couple (and have them kiss), along with printing a ton of very gay artwork and probably breaking their normal rules on how close to implied nudity they can put on a card with Bearscape, but appear to have made this article run only in whitelisted countries, as arbitrary countries in South/Central America seem to be unable to view it. There's honestly no way to read all of this and not think that WotC/Hasbro is a house divided on all this stuff to some degree.
