    Looks like pretty smart changes, especially in toning down the champion. I'm somewhat surprised by Seshiro though, I guess someone thought rotlung was slightly too strong.

    Ravnica Release Avatars

    Participation Avatar: Loxodon Hierarch
    Vanguard abilities: Hand +0, Life +1
    Sacrifice a permanent: Regenerate target creature you control

    Vanguard abilities: Hand +1, Life -5
    Creatures you control must be blocked if able

  7. Notepad Seffy Sefro

    The Sisters is waaaay evil! And, I tend to say the Loxodon is pretty frakking uselss (yay, a Battlestar reference, what a true GEEK!). Sure, regen is nice, but this is garbage compared to a lot of the other avatars out there. I guess with the GW token armies you'll have lots of stuff to sack. Then again, with a GW token guild deck, you'll likely use some other creature-centric avatar.

    I wish I could win a Sisters. I just might try out an event, unless the price on those sisters is low enough to just trade for.

    The Loxodon Hierarch gives you the ability to sac something anytime you like. This would combo better with G/B decks than G/W. Like Savra, Queen of the Golgari. Dumb elephant is working for the wrong guild.

    Now thats funny.

    I think the Caretaker is completely unfair.

    The newest ones seem ok(don't have but 1)but I think the caretaker is extremely powerful.

    :eek:

    Mirage Online Avatars

    Participation Avatar: Stalking Tiger
    Vanguard abilities: Hand +0, Life +2
    Whenever you play a creature spell, you may pay 1. If you do, draw a card.

    Prize Avatar: Frenetic Efreet
    Vanguard abilities: Hand -1, Life -3
    Permanents you control have phasing.
    At the end of your turn, flip a coin. If you win the flip, take an extra turn after this one.
  11. orgg Administrator

    Efreet requires a Karak's Thumb. Otherwise, you are dead.

    The extra turn simply allows you to keep up with your opponent because of the land phasing problem.

    Guildpact Release Avatars

    Prize Avatar: Rumbling Slum
    Hand: +1
    Life: +1
    At the beginning of your upkeep, Rumbling Slum deals 1 to each opponent.

    Participation: Teysa, Orzhov Scion
    Hand: +0
    Life: -2
    Whenever a non-token creature is put into a graveyard from play, put a 1/1 white, Spirit creature token with flying into play.
  13. orgg Administrator

    Funny enough, Slurm right now does 10 damage. I think the version they have previewed is the correct one, though.
  14. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    What do you mean, they accidently coded it to do 10 damage instead of just one? Yowza... :eek:
  15. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Heh. The first person on the receiving end of that must have had an unpleasant surprise.

    All Land, Momir Vig games are fun.

    Just don't activate 'em for seven.
  20. Limited Yes, but we won't care

    How come Lyzolda doesn't have Handsize -7?
