I think we're done everyone in design can go home

There is nothing about this card that isn't maximum good

Just FYI, the playtest name for that was "Ball Blightning"

I had a lovely chat with my credit card's fraud warning department today after stopping by Grand Prix Providence.

Downside: Now fetching will take twice as long.

Obviously you need to get a full playset then.

So, 5c?

What do you think of the pile of new 5c generals?

New Sisay will probably be the new Commander of my Superfriends deck (which is the one that gets to keep real duals) since Progenitus is just there for swag and almost never gets played. I just have to find an appropriately fancy printing of her (foil Russian or Japanese, maybe Korean...)

Morophon will probably be the new Commander for my Changeling Tribal deck, replacing Sliver Hivelord. New changelings will improve the quality of that deck, Yuriko (unblockable Changeling)...

Bunch of cool shit in this set.

This is the coolest set in years. It's basically everything Time Spiral should have been.

I mean, the original pitch for the set was "Time Spiral II".

Right, but an ACTUAL Time Spiral II would have just been alright. This set is nailing everything so hard.

That just reminds me that the art is NUTS this set:

Some of the callbacks are just flat-out insane too:

Who'd have ever imagined a card depicting a Ravnica subspecies Vedalken, trained on Kamigawa, with what looks like Kaladesh technology, doing a mission on probably-Innistrad?

Man, thanks to this thread I just read through the rest of the revealed cards. Insert the CJ meme here.

Sadly, my uncle's a bit underwhelming compared to, say, Krenko. Less outright aggro and more grindy-value, which doesn't seem like it fits goblins.
