    Soul of Emancipation isn't a story spotlight but does actually explain why the Angels are flitting about. Meeting of the Five is a story spotlight, but literally showcases an event that never happened in the story and couldn't happen given the events of the story.

    This whole thing really got butchered, huh?

    I mean, that's more of a backstory card. I presume that they did, in fact, occasionally meet.

    "Story Spotlight" is supposed to represent a key moment in the set's plotline, not just "a thing that happened within the world of the set."

    This cards on this set deviate from the plotline way, way more than they usually do, if they're highlighting a random offscreen prequel moment and not highlighting the literal climax of the story.

    Treasures go boom. The Angel is a pile of value too, and won't have much trouble sticking around to attack.

    This set is doing a lot of nice interactions with treasures. And just tokens/counters in general due to the various themes and mechanics.

    I've got commander decks I'm considering throwing this in, because that's a great creature to start sacrificing repeatedly (or just throw at people's faces until they kill it and then I replay it for more value)

    Priest of Ancient Lore GTFO I guess. And that was the best white common in AFR or at least top 3.

    It's also a white one-up to Cloudkin Seer, although the elemental synergies in that set were probably worth more than a single life.

    Look, if you beat the shit out of someone then your combo stops. If you keep gaining life you can keep doing combos! It's win win!

    Rafiq appears on The List for New Capenna with new art in the showcase frame.

    that’s weird. I wonder if a secret pair got scuppered, or he was supposed to be in this one which is suspiciously card-light

    As per the Weekly MTG stream, they're just trying something new with The List. You might notice that it has its normal Alara set symbol and not the one used for Secret Lairs.

    i mean, yeah. that's what they say. i'm just wondering if they had the art asset from somewhere else 'cause it seems weird if there's just the one

  • I needed a gnome to post.I needed a gnome to post. boom Registered User regular
    seems like they're doing one-off experiments a bit more, like when hidegetsu in the last set randomly had 5 different colour variants instead of, say, a card from the set people would play

    Yeah I'm confused. So it's a go wide oblivion ring and if it happens to hit something somebody stole from you that creature gets a buff when it comes back?

    X22wmuF.jpg
  • KwoaruKwoaru Registered User regular
    I think it can exile one creature per player, and then when they come back any that enter under your control get some counters? Right?

  • I needed a gnome to post.I needed a gnome to post. boom Registered User regular
    So you can target one creature for every player, including yourself. If you target one of your own creatures, it comes back with the two counters. Like a really, really slow flicker.

    Straight up better than Containment Construct since that wording doesnt care about normal cast timing. Fun.

    that dog has a lot going on for a single mana. Feels not quite as good as Shambling Ghast but in the same ballpark.

    Giada is going to be a popular commander I think, and just helm angel tribal decks. That's a really good ability for having creatures just get completely out of hand.
