    I like those mechanics as well, but I don't like how some people build decks w/ 40+ rares in them just to pull off sick little combos to win the game...

    Cycling coming back...then Buyback coming back...

    Its like we have Urza and Tempst blocks coming back all over again, just in reverse...

    I can't wait for flanking. :p

    They kill Counterspell but they'd bring back only the best mechanic ever!

    I like buyback right where it is now, in extended-land.

    F- I would LOVE for there to be an official format for commons and common lands only.

    I like buyback. Not sure how it'll affect the tourney scene since that's what people seem concerned about, but I don't care since I play "casual" and have been playing with buyback and all the past mechanics anyway :)

    I just want more graveyard hate cards (that's not black). :)
  6. train The Wildcard!!!...

    I would also say it's buyback...

    As for the Urza's reject - it must've broken the block even more!... can't wait!!!...

    Spidey - Morningtide, the advocates...
  7. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    I'm not sure I like the advocates in a MP game; I'm not sure giving their effect is worth it without building a deck that will get smacked by the others. Unless you have some good ideas :)
  8. Ferret CPA Founder, Slacker

    I like to play casually as well. However, since the only source of players I have right now is MTGO I have to be careful who I play with. Many people come in saying they're casual - while they showcase their All-Rare decks. If I were playing RL Magic I really wouldn't care about how these cards might affect the game...

    -Ferret

    "Besides what affects the Pro Tour eventually trickles up to the Casual scene..."

    Um, with urza's armor, and lands coming back... is there any chance more of his artifacts will be revealed?
  10. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Ferret: Exactly. You're coming from one angle and I'm coming from another. That's all. I'm just throwing a vote in for "doesn't matter 'cause it doesn't affect me" :) .
  11. Istanbul Sucker MCs call me sire.

    You know, Ferret...having a deck that uses a lot of rares doesn't make it less casual. It just means that the particular cards that fit into your deck HAPPEN to be rare. A deck is casual based on its playing style, its fun factor, and how innovative it is - the rarity of its cards does not and should not play into whether it qualifies as a 'casual' deck. For that matter, why should a deck have to "qualify"?! It's a game. Have fun with it.
  12. Ferret CPA Founder, Slacker

    Good point. I guess I'm talking more about some of the "Power Rares" that find their way into a lot of the cookie-cutter decks that are pretty prevalent on MTGO. Undoubtedly, you've seen what I'm talking about: Some kid loses to a fantastic deck and they go out of their way to snag all of the rares of that deck to make a copy for themselves. Not enough people take the same time that you do to create powerful decks that are actually ORIGINAL...

    -Ferret

    "I don't mind losing as long as I know that the person beating me took the time to create the deck themself..."

    Lotus' and Atogs O MY!

    Come on folks, I knew they'd bring back Atogs and even a lotus or something to keep in the style of Richard. (Lazy sons a *****es!)


    ITS A BLACK LOTUS IN THERE SET! JUST LOOK!

    VERY VERY BAD IDEA!

    Both the Atog and the Lotus were taken out of print for a reason. This could be by far the biggest mistake WotC has ever made since printing Tolarian Academy...

    -Ferret

    "Lotus Vale I'd like to see again - I loved that card..."
  15. Notepad Seffy Sefro

    The Atog was originally taken out of print in Revised because there were no artifacts at the common level for him. Then, it was brought back in 5E, but newbies didn't grasp the concept, so out it went again by 6E.

    It is okay to bring back.


    As for Lotus, it will not make it back. We will get a cheap substitude, like Lion's Eye Diamond.
  16. DÛke Memento Mori

    ...

    Please try to hold on to your ready-to-burst stupidity. That does not in any way look like a Black Lotus. It looks more like an iron/silver/platinum lotus.

    Now is it just me, or do all those images have a snowy/frozen atmosphere to them?
  17. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    It's highly doubtful to the point of 99% that Black Lotus will ever be brought back (along with the rest of the P9). It's just Lotus-related, if not a reprint, like any other card that has a lotus pic.
  18. train The Wildcard!!!...

    Wasn't lotus on the not to be reprinted list?...
  19. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Yep, and although that could change, it's highly doubtful which is why I said 99% :)
  20. Killer Joe Active Member

    I'd still like to know where I can obtain non-tournament copies of the P9. Didn't someone once mention that there was a promotional set of them printed?

    As for Mirrodin, I considered Tempest and Invasion as the sets that turned the environment on it's head and we're due for another set like those! Honestly, for as much as I enjoy the current T2 envirnment, it's the only thing on the menu :rolleyes: .

    Waiter! 'Check', please!
