RDW is extremely based, fuck off. Piloting it takes actual, unironical skill because your damage/mana curve has to be spot on, you have to have trade consistency with burst depending on the environment and most men can't do that

RDW was basically invented by someone with PhD in math

Turn 3 kills were never meant to be part of standard or pioneer. Pioneer was a "turn 4 format" since it's inception and if you allow t3 kills then the format has no reason to exist and we should all just be playing modern

Ulakeks official lore
The planeswalker Ugin once compared the appearance of Eldrazi on a plane to the appearance of hands being dipped into a pool of water. That said, Ulalek is what happens when two Eldrazi titans dip into a plane at the same location from the Blind Eternities. An amalgamation of Ulamog and Kozilek lineages, Ulalek's presence amplifies both the innate tendencies of Ulamog spawn to warp physical properties and Kozilek spawn to warp reality. Its own influence on a plane is constantly shifting, as if the substance of its being is constantly in flux.

Ulalek has only ever appeared once, on a plane that has long since been reduced to a drained husk and whose name has faded from memory. Since then, it is unknown if Ulalek as a being still exists, or if it came apart once the aspects of Ulamog and Kozilek that made it up withdrew back into the Blind Eternities...

Does magic really have so much legacy that Mark can shit down everyone's throat and people will just buy it anyway because it's technically magic?

I'll talk about premodern, vintage and legacy. My country's small proxy friendly eternal weekend is in a couple of days and I intend to play angel stompy in premodern, creative technique in legacy and dredge in vintage. I have a fairly high winrate playing creative technique online and while I don't have the deck in paper, I think it's a good meta call as combo is not popular here.

For premodern, could anyone suggest adjustments to this list? I'm not trying super hard for this format.

The booster box art has something that definitely LOOKS kind of like a Kolaghan-esque creature, which might suggest the Dragonstorm arc is "ah fuck Tarkir's dragonstorms are affecting the multiverse at large for reasons".
The stated plot of Bloomburrow itself is the Calamity Beasts (the big elemental animals) are awakening all at once and causing problems, led by Maha, the big fuck-off owl, and Mabel goes off to assemble a party to stop them, etc.
>>
>>93032758
I'm also just noticing the tendrils behind the Kolaghan-y thing and I THINK that's meant to be sort of a repurposed bit of Realmbreaker? Similar aesthetic. Could just be a way to visualise a Dragonstorm though.

Question, sorry and thank you for your time.
Under 115 targets:
>115.1b Aura spells are always targeted. An Aura’s target is specified by its enchant keyword ability (see rule 702.5, “Enchant”). The target is chosen as the spell is cast; see rule 601.2c. An Aura permanent doesn’t target anything; only the spell is targeted. (An activated or triggered ability of an Aura permanent can also be targeted.)

>(An activated or triggered ability of an Aura permanent can also be targeted.)<
Would that mean that the activated ability counts as targeting the enchanted creature, or is it only targeted when cast?
>>
>>93033661
if they're really pushing a (U)BR affinity archetype in MH3 draft it would make sense for them to make it common.
damn that would be fun to draft too.
>>
>>93033674
Shade's Form doesn't have an activated ability. It has two continuous effects, one of which grants an activated ability to the creature it is attached to.
If you activate the ability the source of the effect is the creature, not the enchantment, and that wording doesn't make the creature target itself.
>>
>>93033541
Wow. I can't believe I'm in the same thread with a top rank magic player. I had my first Eldraine draft and went 4/3 (one opponent did concede immediately) so still some room for improvement for me. UG ramp is too slow.

No. Some keywords implicate targeting (e.g. the Enchant keyword on Torture makes the spell target when you cast it) but outside of keywords the rules text has to use the word 'target'. Torture's activated ability does not target.

Cry about it all you want but the designers have designed this game to be over by turn 3 unless you intentionally gimp your deck.

Of course this is only a problem at official events or playing with dorks at LGS's. It's a non-issue at kitchen table or fun tables but unfortunately the total lack of any sort of balancing means that by default most games will be rocket tag matches decided solely by opening hand rng. That's why there will never be an exciting or beloved professional scene and why Commander is now the defacto main mode of playing Magic.

You're going to get played. That's why Snappy found its way into some of these. They are never going to put anything good in these again. They just need to tempt you with the possibility.

They can shove in a bargain bin rare with "How to Draw Manga" tier art and turn around and say, "it was a bonus! We never even said we'd include it, never mind promising something remotely playable or valuable."

I mean in general, like you could slot it into multiple dual coloured decks right? Or is the damage that big of an deal?
>>
>>93035191
it depends on the deck. if you are a very greedy deck that needs a very flexible mana base because your gameplan involves something like a T1 play that needs W and a T2 play that needs UB and a T3 play that needs RGG, 1 life is negligible. if you are a two colour deck, you absolutely have cheaper, less damaging options for fixing, you could likely get away with mostly basics for a dual coloured deck if you aren't trying to break the bank. regardless, your question was about a manabase costing an arm and a limb, and a 40 dollar card is not something that prevents that. i ask again, what deck are you playing?
>>
>>93035153
Buy 4th edition dual lands. Like it sounds crazy, but they only go up in price. Usually, pretty slowly over time.

Otherwise, buy commons, and old multi lands that have already rotated out of standard. There's tons of them.

Or go crazy and save up money for an Italian version of this card. Its sweet.

Spend a tiny bit of money getting high quality proxies printed isn't a bad idea either. As long as you don't go to tournaments with them.

Prices will drop for sure but this one may end up quite popular among EDH players. Basically, there is no reason to not run it if your deck is WB(x).
>>
>>93036029
brother, everything is expensive on launch. 2 bucks on launch means it will be 50 cents in about 3 weeks. this is pretty much an edh only card, and even then it is too high cmc to see play at anything but casual tables. utter end sees utterly no play. this will be the same, even if it technically "draws you a card" as well as removing something.
unless animar is a much bigger problem at large than i realize, and WB decks everywhere start running this specifically to be able to hit animar.

Commander players are playing casually with their friends
This general is just a bunch of jaded players who hate hyper optimized decks, hate any form of variance, hate all new cards on principle of them being new and thus not sovl and trad, hate playing with other people, and hate all formats despite continuing to play them
The two populations barely interact, and the commander population is growing while this general's population is shrinking, which only makes them more jaded and makes them hate commander by virtue of commander being popular and omnipresent in all forms of magic product

Arenabab whining notwithstanding, variance is the lifeblood of the game. Everyone should've learned that from companions.

I hate new cards because of relentless power creep yet somehow also boring design, shitty art, and constantly declining physical card quality

Commander IS a non-casual constructed format. People play commander casually, but people also play standard, pioneer, modern, legacy, vintage and pauper casually. There are WotC sanctioned Commander tournaments with full prize support, so your metric is worthless. At best, it will disqualify Premodern.

>>93036967
EDH, Standard, Modern, Legacy, and limited are for all intents and purposes different games that share mechanics and pieces.
EDH is more of a group board game than all the others. It's also less restrictive in what you can play without consistently eating shit.

fable needs to go, thuoghtseize is literally peak fairmagic
fatal push is arguable, i would like it [and counterspell in modern] to go so people have to diversify their kill//counterspells again, having omnipresent do-it-all spells is unhealthy

Just errata exploring to not work if there are no card in deck.
>>
>>93038334
that could also work yeah, change the rule of exploring to not be doable if your deck is empty, the ability simply leaves the stack
>>
>>93038256
The format is fucked if amalia gets banned. They desperately need to unban inverter because amalia only catches so much flak because it's the one combo deck in a format that doesn't have combo for some reason. Vamps is a midrange abomination that should be banned and doesn't count as a true combo deck. Amalia draws are soul and are only hated by bugmen

99% of amalia draws are initiated by the opponent casting a pump spell on amalia.

amalia is literally just a much MUCH more vulnerable turbo depths, theres a shitton of interaction to have for her in every color
it's just that your opponent can easily force IDs that is the genuine actual problem, it easily results in nongames with any pump spell
