    I like the new Cartouche auras. Also, yay, a new curse. Maybe shouldn't be mythic, especially with that mana cost. If you're pumping out a seven-mana cost card in a curse deck, you should either have already won, or are about to die.

    Also, cards that work off cycling. This one I like

    Never mind, I just found a better new curse

    I also like Faith of the Devoted. Wouldn't be surprised if it does something in Standard.

    I prefer the name Oops All Gideons! but it was still amazing to see how effective that was.

    I was amazed too. I didn't think it would work that well, although against Tron he just got lucky. I'm sure he would have lost there.

    If I was able to play Standard I would play this deck in a heart beat.

    Modern has a couple of mono black decks, not necessarily devotion. 8 Rack is a discard strict deck. I do believe there was a black devotions deck at one time to abuse Grey Merchant, sometimes with Panharmonicon. I like to think that Zombies can be done now, although it may not be mono black.

    Why do all of these neat kinds of decks have to come out when I have time and no money rather than when I've had money and no time for the last year.

    Got possibly new cards for Commander 2017. One deck looks to be dragons.

    Nicol Bolas is all sorts of badass in his new card.

    It was a mistake coming to this thread. I told myself a decade ago that I couldn't afford to play Magic anymore...

    Looks like a Magic: the Gathering MMO is going to be made. I don't know what to think of that.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Announcement day will be next week.

    Monday will be about changes to upcoming sets. Something tells me this will bring back core sets, because man do we need a place for reprints right now.

    Tuesday will be digital stuff, along with banned/restricted announcement.

    Wednesday is them announcing even more stuff, like products and “worlds”

    Thursday is a grand prix, but they say that they’ll announce something for 2018 that players have been wanting for a long time.

    And Friday will be for some Hour spoilers.

    The new Bolas looks very tasty.

    On another note, What do you guys think the MTG MMO will be like? It's made by the studio who made City of villians/heros, Neverwinter etc.

    With the studio making it that has a pretty poor track record, and honestly even if it is an unliked opinion the more they see why other MMOs succeeded and get inspiration from them the better. Heck, maybe even copying as much as possible will be good.

    First news of the week and it's a doozy.

    First, core sets are coming back. WOOHOO, I say personally.

    Second, there will be no more "blocks", which goes into the third point.

    Third, every plane we go to can last any number of sets, from one to however many they choose for story reasons. This is what it will look like.


    Fourth, the Gatewatch will show up on less planeswalker cards. The Gatewatch will even show up less, sometimes this will mean less characters and other times it may be seeing none of them, but they will still be around and we will still have those times where they are around for the entire story of a plane or more.

    Fifth, Masterpieces won't be in every set. Hour of Devastation will have them, but Ixalan will not.

    I like these changes except for the fact that the new "core sets" will be strictly new player friendly. I just don't know what simple mechanics actually entails.

    In other news, Aetherworks Marvel is banned in standard for being too frustrating. Not for being OP or overly represented, which they somewhat refuted, but simply unfun to play against.

    Finally, a Magus of the Crucible being printed in the next set.



    - - - Updated - - -

    Hoo boy! We're going back to Dominaria next year and getting a third UN set. I can't wait to draft all that crazy shit in the next UN set.



    Some possible Ixalan spoilers.

    The HoD invocations seem to be a bit over the top. Bloodmoon? Damnation? Thoughtseize? There will be some pricey lotterycards.
