    Oh hey, Jonathon Young has an official song for this set:



    Just started listenting to it, it's pretty good! But very different from his usual oeuvre

    Not just one song, looks like they had him do a whole EP. That's just the Maestros track.

    I don't know if I should be annoyed with myself for liking this Kamigawa one he did (I assume for the same overall album).

    Yes. The only creature type it has is Dog.

    Bad news: It's done in that Metal gargling voice that makes it impossible to understand the lyrics.

    Is there a Phyrexian-language Urabrask? I can't see one on mythicspoiler but that doesn't necessarily mean anything.

    So, of the spoilers for Baldur's Gate:
    There's a 3-color legend that cares about you hitting 9 gates. There are 4 legal gates for him currently, and assuming that's a new cycle of Thriving lands but Gates, that's another 3. So we have to assume at least 2 more gates of some kind exist in the set. (Literal Baldur's Gate card?)

    Also, being able to run a second copy of thriving lands is gonna be very nice for budget 3+ color manabases!

    When in doubt remember that no subtype can exist between multiple types. If treasure appears on an artifact only card then it must always be an artifact subtype.

    Not quite true. Instant and sorcery share types, as do creature and tribal. Other than those, subtypes don't cross over.

    Instants and sorceries are allowed that's true but tribal is different. I don't remember the exact rational but it exists specifically because of the rule that types can't share subtypes.

    If Rosewater had his way and could redesign the game from scratch, Instant would be a supertype that would replace the flash keyword and all non-permanent cards would just be Sorceries. IIRC the only subtype that is unique to Instants is Trap but there's nothing preventing a Sorcery - Trap from existing (other than common sense).

    Also, every Lesson in Strixhaven is a Sorcery but that's a game balance thing that I'm sure they'll break the next time we see Learn.

    New commander cards are leaking? Previewing? Not sure.

    Anyways, there's a new split second card, and it's a riff on Minimis Containment, except this one turns the target into a clue.

    I'm gonna need so many of these decks... there's so many good cards to streamline things :P.

    I honestly have not read the Capenna fiction, so could anyone describe the difference between how the cephalids function / behave, and is there something to them that would necessitate them not being vedalken?

    I know MaRo mentioned something about going about it backwards, but I was wondering why they picked cephalids instead of vedalken.

    That's not something that would be addressed in the fiction.

    Maybe in the Planeswalkers' Guide, which should be up later this week (if not actually tomorrow).

    This never ended up manifesting, did it? Very unusual, especially for a brand new plane. I hope this isn't indicative of a new trend. These articles are always very useful for reference.

    Many MTG sealed product prices are going up by ~11% beginning in July:
    WotC wrote:
    We've kept the scope of the price increase as narrow as possible, and will only be adjusting the prices on the following premier set, Unfinity, and Jumpstart products:

    Draft Boosters
    Set Boosters
    Collector Boosters
    Bundles
    Jumpstart Boosters
    Commander decks, meanwhile, have a price increase going into effect with Streets of New Capenna. There are no plans to increase the price of Commander decks further in July.

    Each of these products will increase by slightly different percentages, which we estimate will be approximately 11% across the products that are seeing an increase, allowing for regional variation. These increases also will not affect other product lines, like Masters, Modern Horizons, Secret Lair, Challenger Decks, or Universes Beyond.

  • VyolynceVyolynce Registered User regular
    Surprised it took this long. They've been moving product like mad for the last two years despite everything.

    Do you think when they eventually go back to Mirrodin they'll finish killing it or actually bring it back to at least degree? Because I'll be honest Mirrodin was always my favorite setting in all the planes and I kind of don't give a shit about the Phyrexians personally.
