Especially on a River Sneak or Storm Sculptor.

It's kind of expensive though, no? It's a little bit win more. Turn 6 for a 5 loyalty planeswalker? That has 4 turns until she ultimates?
Probably good in EDH, not that I play that format.

ANYWAY...

Got some spoilers!


Two promos, the equipment is a (buy a box) and the Evolving Wilds is a League promo. Whilst I am really not excited by an Evolving Wilds... Haha. Captain's Hook is pretty fun, shame that is won't be too great in Standard. Though, I would like to see a deck built incorporating it.

Something like (Foundry Inspector + Captain's Hook + Admiral Beckett Brass) for instance.

Vona's Hunger - 2B

Instant

Ascend (If you control ten or more permanents, you get the city's blessing for the rest of the game.)

Each opponent sacrifices a creature. If you have the city's blessing, instead each opponent sacrifices half the creatures he or she controls, rounded up
.


City's Blessing looks like a mechanic similar to 'monarch', but not necessarily something singular that passes from player to player - it can mean different things depending on what spells are cast.

And this is going in every token deck in standard. Sorry no picture yet.

http://deck.tk/1PJd2YnD - Krokodil; my favorite Standard deck which focuses on -1/-1 counter synergy; currently illegal due to ban on attune. I'm brewing a post ban version...

Standard decks I'm trying:
http://deck.tk/4ixH1ndX - Mono G Monument
http://deck.tk/94QF5WSF - Booty Sac

The longer you look at The Immortal Sun the more busted it becomes for commander
Emrakul looked good in Stranger Things 2

The non-planeswalker deck Angrath has been released.



It's okay. Seems comparable to Ob Nixilis Reignited. Will it see constructed play? 5 mana for a 4 loyalty planeswalker. It doesn't give you a card, like Ob Nixilis, but it does make your opponent discard a card, and lose life. It's minus 3 is similar to Ob Nixilis' minus 3 but with a twist, it's lot like Threaten with the added bonus of having your opponent sacrifice it if it is 3 mana or less after combat... for instance (Electrostatic Pummeler)

The dinosaur will be played in constructed, most likely in a sideboard, much like Felidar Cub. It is also a 3/4 for 3 which makes it very versatile.

It will be interesting to see if this Angrath makes it into RB aggro decks - probably to big cmc as those decks top out at 5cmc for more rapid payoff. If it was 4cmc and 4 loyalty...

A dino version of Qasali Pridemage is very welcome to anyone hoping this next set adds some utility dinos that do more than smash big. A few more like this and dino tribal looks a lot better in terms of being somewhat competitive in standard.

Thanks for posting the new cards!

You're welcome  :)
You're right, the CMC is a little too high in my opinion for it to be included in competitive Rakdos decks, but we'll see.
Definitely, I will be pleased to see more competitive dinosaur decks around, especially retaining a higher creature/spell ratio. The inclusion of Thrashing Brontodon means that you don't have to rely on Appetite for the Untamed, you can keep up the pressure!

Happy New Year to all you MTG fanatics. It's good to be happy, as we have a lot of new spoilers.
I'm going to spoil a few notable ones for you.



I'm not really sure about Kumena. Whilst it is a good card (2/4), especially for Simic Merfolk. It requires you playing a lot of merfolk to get the benefits from it.

A couple of really bad rares... Just, no...


A great transform enchantment...


A true Golgari great, and it is easy to flip! Without Field of Ruin, or any graveyard hate, the five mana return to the battlefield ability is a powerful effect!

If you say so.  :P



Anyway, another elder dinosaur! So far, this one looks far better than the rest!

Oof.. I say Ghalta is way better commander material. I feel like this set is geared towards commander. These are all too expensive for other formats and things like The Immortal Sun are just so perfect

Hualti, Radiant Champion, looks broken.  +1 to gain loyalty counters equal to total of creatures you control. -1 to give creature a boost to attack and toughness equal to number of creatures you control.  -8 for emblem to draw whenever a creature you control hits the field!
