CPA Voting Issues: Classic Creatures

Discussion in 'CPA/WOTC Magic Issues' started by TomB, Jul 30, 2000.

  1. TomB Administrative Assistant

    I'll be posting this as a Voting Topic in a few weeks, so I thought I'd start a thread here to discuss it. This should actually be a two-parter, but depending on the responses we'll see if that's even neccessary. The topic is Classic Creatures, and what we're looking for here is A) Should WotC reprint classic creature cards like Serra Angel and Sengir Vampire, et al, and B) If so, which classic creature would you most like to see reprinted (pick 1).

    Let's talk about it! :D

    I (and many other players) want to see,

    Sengir Vampire
    Serra Angel
    Black Knight
    White Knight
    Order of White Shield
    Knight of Stromgald
    Shivan Dragon
    Mogg Fanatic

    These are off the top of my head...there should be more. Note that these creatures have no "Block" abilities like flanking, echo ect....
  3. FoundationOfRancor The Gunslinger

    Shivan Dragon I would love to see reprinted.
  4. Apollo Bird Boy

    Of course I think they should reprint some classic creatures. But man, making us vote for one! I can't do it. But here's a short list of what I think should be reprinted:

    Shivan Dragon
    Sengir Vampire
    Serra Angel
    Mahamoti Djinn
    Wall of Roots

    I'd also love to see Clone, but only if they could find a version that wouldn't need twenty pages of rulings and errata.
  5. Gizmo Composite: 1860

    Mogg Fanatic
    Viashino Sandstalker
    Wall Of Blossoms
    Bottle Gnomes
    Paladin En-Vec
    Man O War
  6. Duster Protection from Idiots

    Force of Nature
    Lord of The Pit :)

    'nuff said
  7. Duel Has Less Posts Than Spiderman

    Even if it sucks! It's classic!

    On the other end of the scale, there are cards like
    Hell's Caretaker
    Veteran Bodyguard
    Black and white knight (Badly need reprinting!)

    And, with fame and fortune going for them
    Ball Lightning
    Serra Angel
    Sengir vampire
    (shivan is okay, not my favorite)
    Royal assassin

    a) they should be reprinted

    b) I guess all that can be. The more the merrier.
  9. Volradon Kicking it oldschool

    I am going to have to go with some of the older creature types being prented more often. The reson WotC wont reprint them is because of the collectors, but they should really think about the profit that they will get wen people start buying sets to get those cards.
  10. Mikeymike Captain Hiatus

    All of Gizmo's choices kick butt
    White + Black knights

    A) Sengir Vampire I feel deserves a reprint. I personally think we've seen enough variations on the Serra Angel (Herald, Radiant, foil reprint, that other set about 1.5 years ago)

    B) The number 1 creature I'd like to see again, I would say Wall of Blossoms but I think its coming back in 7th so I'll say Guardian Beast (Ye-haw!)
  11. Dune Echo CPA Founder, Idea Man

    That's a toughy. I always liked Serra Angel and no other card has ever come close to being as good.

    Gizmo: Finally, someone else that realizes the strength of Viashino Sandstalker!
  12. galtwish Loudmouth

    1) Absolutely. The creatures in 6th have by and large sucked for every color but Green. Every creature deck is based off a block creature deck, more or less. 5th Ed. had lots of good creatures, and made rush decks other than Stompy viable.

    2) Icy Manipulator. Absolutley awesome (especially if they use the old art. Mmmmm, foil Promo Icy...). Ring of Gix is good, but Echo kills it, and Amber Prison is pretty darn bad.

    even tho they will never reprint it, JUZAM DJINN!
    Also Two headed giant of foriys & Vesuvan Doppelganger.
  14. Killer Joe Active Member

    Spike Weaver & his lil' bro Feeder
  15. Mr_Pestilence Wumpus

    How about Dragon Whelp, Royal Assassin, Cemetary Gate (my Pestilence decks really miss this thing), Wall of Souls (ditto), Scragnoth, Spirit of the Night (and all of the various parts to summon it), Erg Raiders, Abyssal Gatekeeper, Thundermare, Juggernaut, Anarchy (OK, it's not a creature, I just miss it), and Vesuvan Doppleganger (I actually enjoyed the arguments this thng caused!).
  16. Duel Has Less Posts Than Spiderman

    Wall of blossoms is coming back? Hell yeah!

    How about Wall of roots as well?

    Dragon whelp should be reprinted, it;'s not at all broken

    I think morphling, one of the new classics, should be reprinted. It's the best thing to happen for blue in a while.
  17. Multani Treetrunk Guy

    Also Rouge Elephant.
  18. Cateran Overlord New Member

    ...unless you print something for each color to use against it.

    Seriously though:

    5 original pieces of fat...
    Serra Angel
    Shivan Dragon
    Sengir Vampire
    Force of Nature
    Mahamoti Djinn

    5 weenie classics...
    Mogg Fanatic
    Ghazban Ogre
    Savannah Lions
    Tidal Warrior

    We should do a thread for spells too!
  19. DÛke Memento Mori

    I NEED, notice how I said, NEED not WANT, I NEED
    Avenging Angel, Worrior Angel, and Portcullis back.
    I must get them.
  20. Duel Has Less Posts Than Spiderman

    Never reprint portcullis. NEVER, you hear me?
