    For sure. I'm a little surprised they only gave one invocation for the three new gods in this set. I would have thought that the Locust and Scarab gods would get them too.

    The Locust God looks pretty sweet. I don't have much hope for it in standard with it's stats for cost, but I'll definitely attempt to make a modern deck. And when that likely doesn't work, it looks like an EDH all-star.

    Speaking of a god, this one is an all star. I'd love to make a U/B control deck with this one in it.

    These gods are insane, I can't wait to see the ones I actually care about.

    Those are the only three, scorpion, scarab, and locust. Story is that there were 8 of them and Bolas took the insect ones and put them away to corrupt for a later date.

    Scarab is the best one. I want to build U/B control all day right now.

    Random horse tribal out of nowhere on a pretty good card to boot.

    Not exactly a tribal card though. Works better outside a "horse" deck, into a life gain deck. Its tokens would get the indestructible, and with a deck that's always gaining life, you get a 5/5 indestructible for free every turn.

    Haha, feeling almost the same here. Last versions I remember playing were something around Tempest/Exodus/6th/7th, and now I feel like playing again... Good that there's no addicted friends luring me in. What a great game.

    Guess now we know 2 of the tribes for this year's Commander decks.

    So the Wizards commander 2017 page now has a header with The Ur-Dragon, Arahbo, and those two. They appear to be the face cards for the last two decks. The first one's clearly a vampire which is awesome. The second one, people can't seem to agree on but the current leading guess is clerics.

    Got some images from Comic Con for Unstable. Man I wish we had some of this art style back in Magic more often. Love the racoon selling squirrels.

    The agreed rumor is that the vampire is most likely Edgar Markov, the one who started vampires on Innistrad and Sorin's grandfather.

    Aw man, poor Riggers and Contraptions being relegated to an un-set.

    Yeah, heard that. Now I just wonder what colors it'll be. The most vampires are R/B so that's obvious, but then we have some Dimir/Grixis and some Orzhov including Sorin. Personally I'd prefer Mardu over Grixis.

    With his father originally being a scientist him being Grixis makes sense, but if we follow the colors on the art then Mardu is a possibility. I bet they'll make it Mardu because of all of the white vampires coming in Ixalan.

    As for Riggers the only way to get Steamflogger Boss to work would be to errata it heavily. Contraptions could easily have been like Clue, Gold, Etherium Cell, and I think "treasure" coming in Ixalan, but the way those work is you the player make them, not the Riggers. A shame Contraptions are Un- only, but hey it's alright with me.

    There is a Magic MMO currently in development. I can't say I have high hopes for it, but only time will tell.

    Well we got our first look at Ixalan and some interesting things are taking place. Yes that is a legendary walker and now walkers work like how legendaries normally work, so you can have two different named Jaces, Gideons, Nissas, or Ajanis.

    I'm personally excited for Jin-Gitaxias and Consecrated Sphinx for my new commander deck and Lotus Cobra.
