8th Edition Rollout

  1. Istanbul Sucker MCs call me sire.

    Just in case you've been living under a rock, WotC decided to do something special (?) for 8th Edition...it will include at least one card from each set printed so far that has never been in a basic set. They're going in reverse chronological order to reveal the cards. So far, they are:

    Scourge:
    Enrage
    Rain of Blades

    Legions:
    Merchant of Secrets
    Fugitive Wizard (somebody better get fired for this)
    Enormous Baloth

    Onslaught:
    Demystify
    Elvish Scrapper (so long, Scavenger Folk)
    Gluttonous Zombie
    Severed Legion (looks like Fear is black's big new thing)
    Elvish Pioneer
    Glory Seeker
    Naturalize (I think we can safely say that, with this in the new base set, 7th Ed. will become the last set in which Disenchant was printed)

    Judgment:
    Chastise
    Suntail Hawk

    Torment
    Mind Sludge

    Aven Cloudchaser

    So far, nothing that screams out 'woo-hoo!' to me. But I'm anxious for the older sets...wonder what they're gonna bring back from Arabian Nights (if it's Fishliver Oil, someone's gonna have to die) and Legends (see above, Barbary Apes).

    Nobody said they are going to bring anything back. They only said they are going to include at least one card that was originally printed in each set. Wasn't Alladin's Ring first printed in Arabian Nights, for example? It was in 6th and 7th, and could very easily be the AN card in 8th.

    Also, I think the inclusion of Demystify marks the end of Disenchant almost more than the inclusion of Naturalize.
  4. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    There will have to be another AN card than the Ring since the Ring has already been in basic sets...
  5. rkoelsch Angel Boy

    I really hate to see merfolk go. I hope they don't replace them with cephalids. Fugitive Wizard fits in Merfolk of the Pearl Medallions slot. I actually like most of the white

    Suntail Hawk way better than Eager Cadet
    Glory seeker is better than Knight Errant(Soldiers matter)
    I like Chastise I wonder what it replaces
  6. EricBess Active Member

    I stand corrected. I must have missed that part... :D

    Still, based on what we have seen so far, it seems like they are making a complete overhaul of "staple" cards, so I'm sure we'll see that continue. Cards that are similar in effect to other cards that have been printed, but with minor differences. Could be interesting all the same, though.
  7. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    I like the Merfolk too. Cephalids seem... shady :)
  8. Rooser Thread Necromancer

    I won't be surprised if the Arabian Nights card is Erhnam Djinn
  9. Rooser Thread Necromancer

    Oh yeah, and I can't believe they'd kill off merfolk.

    At least they went out with a bang, (Laquatus).
  10. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    It depends if they consider Chronicles part of the basic set...
  11. rkoelsch Angel Boy

    Djinn was reprinted in Judgement
  12. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    But the rule is a unique card not already reprinted in a basic set...
  13. BigBlue Magic Jones

    Hmm... going back to alpha.... There aren't many which are allowed in the Reprint policy which fit the criteria

    Sinkhole? Berserk (now that it's off Restricted...)? Ice Storm? False Orders? Dwarven Demolition Team?

    Perhaps it will be the Land Destruction duo of Sinkhole and Ice Storm. Oooh Foil Sinkhole.....

    If only I didn't absolutely abhor the new layout...
  14. EricBess Active Member

    That's all we need, Psychatog and Berserk in the same T2 environment... :p
  15. train The Wildcard!!!...

    But Eb - a lot of inexperienced players would stack all tog abilities, and then berserk... making they're tog not big at all...

    "Now... in the hands of a Pro-player...":rolleyes:
  16. train The Wildcard!!!...

    Looks decent so far...

    I like the Defense Grid idea...

    I do know that I don't have to buy any 8th... having all the older versions of cards and what not...:cool: :D ;)
  17. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    I'm missing some expansions but since there's only a few cards from them included in 8th, I'm probably not going to buy any either...
  18. Mikeymike Captain Hiatus

    Plow Under is in 8th? Ugh, I hated that card.

    There are some interesting choices in here, I think it is a pretty good set (especially if Ruhk Egg and the Dreams are true).

    Things I Like:
    Lord of the Undead
    Phyrexian Arena
    Diabolic Tutor
    Chastise
    Living Terrain
    Blinding Angel (very nice)
    Bribery
    Collective Unc
    Hunted Wumpus
    Revive (underrated)
    Defense Grid
    Phyrexian Plaguelord (Awesome!)

    There are definitely some annoying cards, but I think they did a pretty damn good job.
  19. train The Wildcard!!!...

    I just want to verify that counterspell is gone...:D
  20. Rooser Thread Necromancer

    Plow Under is awesome in the right situation. Unfortunately, T2 will not be able to deliver that right situation.
