    My current sealed pool had 0 fixing commons, almost no fixing lands, almost no treasure generators, and the best rares were corpse explosion and xander.

    But it had 3 inspiring overseers and 4 murders, so it's still pretty good.

    i sold my modern-heavy collection for about what i spent on the hobby over the five years i played standard, maybe a little less, but:

    i always traded for legacy and modern value
    i waited like five years after quitting and then sold everything
    buy listing and sorting thousands of cards was roughly 40hrs labor

    Because Streets of New Capenna has only already been out for two weeks, here are MaRo's teasers for CML2: Baldur's Gate!
    First up, here are some things you can expect:

    • a returning mechanic that feels apropos for D&D makes use of a new card type

    • a card capable of making an Ox, Boar, or Goat

    • the word “seven” appears on two cards and the word “nine” appears on one

    • a new legendary colorless artifact token named Volo’s Journal

    • a 10/10 creature with flying and trample that you can cast for G

    • a lord for Demons, Devils, Imps, and Tieflings

    • the character we got a lot of complaints about not being in Adventures in the Forgotten Realms gets a card

    • three legendary creatures that are Gods

    • a card that enhances all creatures with mana abilities

    • a spell that can copy something X times

    Next, here are some rules text that will be showing up on cards:

    • “This spell costs 1 less to cast for each opponent you’re attacking.”

    • “That artifact becomes a 0/0 Homunculus artifact creature with flying.”

    • “Whenever you cast a spell you don’t own,”

    • “If you control neither creature, draw three cards.”

    • “you don’t lose the game for having 0 or less life.”

    • “Tokens you control have ‘T:”

    • “Then choose a third player”

    • “where X is the total mana value of Dragons you control.”

    • “put a number of time counters on it equal to its mana value.”

    • “you may cast your commander from the command zone without paying its mana cost.”

    Here are some flavor words in the set:

    • Devour Intellect

    • Homunculus Servant

    • Bigby’s Hand

    • Gathered Swarm

    • Avoidance

    • Vicious Mockery

    • Blood Drain

    • Mantel of Inspiration

    • Animate Chains

    • Death Ray

    Finally, here are some creature type lines in the set:

    • Legendary Creature – Halfling Knight

    • Legendary Creature – Tiefling Barbarian

    • Legendary Creature – Gith Warrior

    • Legendary Creature – Dragon Peasant

    • Legendary Creature – Vampire Elf Rogue

    • Legendary Creature – Bear Warrior

    • Legendary Creature – Devil Noble

    • Legendary Creature – Human Boar

    • Legendary Creature – Cat Devil

    • Legendary Creature – Elephant Angel

    This Thursday at 2:30PM PT over on the official MTG Twitch channel they'll be giving some sneak peaks at Double Masters 2022, Dominaria United, and the Warhammer 40K Commander decks.

    Yeah I'm going to draft CML2 twice, max, and then never look at it again unless I need singles.

    Yep, the briefcase is still a Treasure, and has the normal sac ability. (Unlike the red mana rock, which is a Treasure with different abilities). The commander cards also include a fun Clue that seems real dumb if it gets proliferated at all.

    It is definitely Elminster, but it fucking should be Deekin.

  • ShadowenShadowen Snores in the morning Registered User regular
    I'd say Elminster but I don't think the fandom actually likes him. They might have been confused why he of all characters wasn't present, but that's not the same as "because YOU demanded it, the archetypal GMPC!"

  • NeveronNeveron SwedenRegistered User regular
    It's probably Elminster, if only because AFR had the blue planeswalker be frickin' Mordenkainen. People were understandably confused about how Greyhawk's signature GMPC wizard got into a Forgotten Realms set but Elminster didn't.

    It was Jon Irenicus. Like, everyone knows FR from Baldur's Gate and nobody gives a flying fuck about Sarevok, but loves them some Jon Irenicus.

    I do love Irenicus. It's a shame they can't somehow embed David Warner's voice into the paper card, his performance sticks with me to this day.

    Yah, plenty of folks from Baldur's Gate's cast, Jaraxle, Artemis Entreri, was there characters in Neverwinter Nights that are relevant? And that's just the stuff off the top of my head. There's a shit ton of Forgotten Realms out there and everyone's got their favorites.

    okay listen obvious Sarevok pales in comparison to Irenicus but I don't think we should discount him that much. He was a perfectly threatening and badass villain and Kevin Michael Richardson did a killer job.

    Sarevok probably would have seemed cooler in retrospect if they hadn't made him a party member in ToB.

    Also that armor is pretty silly.

    Ever since they introduced batching in Dominaria, I've wanted to see certain creature types batched into groups similar to this.

    Mankin: Human, Elf, Dwarf, Kithkin, Centaur, Angel

    Orckin: Goblin, Orc, Troll, Ogre, Cyclops

    Undead: Skeleton, Zombie, Spirit, Spectre, Shade, Vampre

    Infernal: Devil, Imp, Azra, Efreet, Demon

    Magicborn: Faerie, Gremlin, Homunculus, Elemental, Gargoyle, Golem, Djinn, Naga, Giant

    Darkborn: Harpie, Siren, Gorgon, Minotaur
    Why yes, I have played a lot of Heroes of Might & Magic 3. Why do you ask?

    Trickery, however, will need to see some Pioneer support before they care to look at it again prior to Format Unification.

    They did as recently as Capenna. It's generally not something they promote though, as it's just a handful of Set Boosters, an oversized spindown, and a box.

    Lands and promo trash rare too. Basically a combo of Fatpacks and the Deckbuilder Toolkits of past sets.

    In the timeline, she hasn't been seen in over 200 years. That was the big reason that it was only immortal or time-fucky characters that you saw in Dominaria, is enough time had passed that all the dudes from the old sets have died. Whatever the reason for her appearance, it's probably not related to Phyrexia.

    Right, the land packs are so worthless I forgot that they exist. Although sometimes the promo rare is nice.

    I would have made the 'Nids Sultai instead of Temur. They're basically Phyrexians without the technological bits. Plus, I like the humor value of every faction in the 40K universe being at least partly Black. In the grim darkness of the far future, there is only Black.

    Dominaria United kicking off a multi-set story arc sounds interesting. Each set in the Bolas arc was essentially a continuation of the last. Will these sets somehow be even more closely connected?
