  1. Azreal the Soulmaster Sorrow's Rhapsody

    I'm definetly happy about Jaya. Great art, and good abilities. I'll actually have to play red now. Glad they did her justice. I've been wanting a card for her since I read the ice age book several years ago.
  2. Nightstalkers Creature — Nightstalker

  3. Limited Yes, but we won't care

    Its utterly horrible. A 5/5 flying shadow?! I hope that other colors received some flying shadow Fog Banks and Wall of Hopes :(
  4. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    They probably reprinted Reality Rift or whatever card it is that can give shadow to a creature (or remove it)....

  5. Limited Yes, but we won't care

    Reality Anchor and Shadow Rift!
  6. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Look at that! I was 50/50 on both names of the cards! :D

  7. Nightstalkers Creature — Nightstalker

    I just enjoy the ability... -1/-0 to all non-shadow critters is just hillarious....

    While I won't be running the card in my main shadow deck (he's too pricey for it), I'm sure to build a deck around it and the other shadow critters in the set.

    I need someone with more time than I...

    Check this "preview" out.

    I've got the ability:

    Whenever you play a creature spell, put X 1/1 black Thrull creature tokens into play where X is that spell's converted mana cost. When you control seven or more Thrulls, sacrifice PREVIEW_CARD.

    I believe the art is #16, but there are a few other pieces I don't recognize and some I don't know the names of. I'm not going to attempt spelling things correctly...

    1. Psytoplast Manipulator
    2. ??? (from the Dark, if I remember correctly)
    3. Ebon Praetor
    4. Guardian Beast
    5. Balduvian Warlord
    6. ??? (don't recognize)
    7. Burning Tree Shaman
    8. An Havva Constable
    9. ??? (from Alliances)
    10. Momar Vig, etc..
    11. Mind Spores (or something Spores)
    12. ??? (recognize, but don't remember name)
    13. I think Gallobraid, but it might be Merinfin (sp?)
    14. Felamerid
    15. Descendent of Kio Maro
    16. Preview Card (?)
    17. Wierd Harvest
    18. something of the Fallen Leaf
    19. ??? (Kamigawa?)
    20. Brine Shaman
    21. ??? (don't recognize)
    22. Bird of Paradise
    23. Sage of Lat Nam
    24. ??? (don't recognize)

    For the casting cost, there is a 1/1 black Swampwalk guy for B and an equipment that gives +1/+0 for 1 and 0 to equip, giving a B.

    Black 1/1 First Strike for B, Unholy Strength for B, equip to give +1/+1 for 1 and 1 to equip for a savings of U1, but I can't help but think this guy shouldn't be blue, so maybe there is something better that uses blue.

    Not sure on the Tunneler Wurm, but the only other creature or Enchantment I could find that either has or gives the ability is Patchwork Gnomes.

    Rarity is rare.

    Creature Type seems an interesting challenge, but not one I have time for.

    Power and Toughness is again something I don't have time for, but it doesn't seem like it would need to be too big. Between Pandemonium, Furnace of Wrath, and Goblin Bombardment alone, I can kill deal 6 damage with a 2 ATK creature without having to do anything else. Clearly a 3/1 would just be a no-brainer, so the ATK is either 1 or 2 and whatever DEF is necessary to keep it alive.
  9. Limited Yes, but we won't care

    I got the same ability.. its the only one (I think) that matches with all the hints.

    It is indeed nr 16; you can see the legendary dude surrounded by thrulls.

    1. Cytoplast Manipulator
    2. Miracle Worker (found this on the mtg boards)
    3. Ebon Praetor
    4. Guardian Beast
    5. Balduvian Warlord
    6. Dakmor Sorceres (portal)
    7. Burning Tree Shaman
    8. An Havva Constable
    9. Chaos Harlequin
    10. Momar Vig, Simic Visionary
    11. Mindbender Spores
    12. Guiding Spirit
    13. Gallowbraid
    14. Fylamarid
    15. Descendent of Kiyo Maro
    16. Preview Card (!)
    17. Weird Harvest
    18. Dosan the Fallen Leaf
    19. Brairknit Kami
    20. Brine Shaman
    21. Collector Protector (found this on the mtg boards)
    22. Bird of Paradise
    23. Sage of Lat Nam
    24. Agnus McKenzie (unglued)

    The extra letters seem to spell out Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder

    I didn't even try this one.. but 2BB pops up a lot.

    Duh :D

    Legendary Creature - Human Wizard

    I got 3/1 (without attacking) and doubt if it could be smaller... besides, 3/1 seems to fit with him not being in play long (two spells will probably provide enough thrull to make him kill himself).
  10. Nightstalkers Creature — Nightstalker

  11. Limited Yes, but we won't care

    I am getting really anxious to see how these suspend cards work out though.. .
  12. Nightstalkers Creature — Nightstalker

    Suspend isn't all that great, but it does annoy the hell out of counter decks.
  13. Force of Will Smith New Member

    this set is so cool! i hope they mage lim dul!.

    oh and they STOLE my idea for removing a card from play for X number of turns :(...
  14. orgg Administrator

    Technically, you were stealing design space from their intellectual property.

    As far as I know, that's how the judge ruled in some case or another with the Versus game.

    As for the Master Breeder, he dies when he makes too many Thrulls. Why was he killed during the Fallen Empires? He made too many types of thrulls. L-O-L-- he's dripping with flavor (and irony).
  15. Force of Will Smith New Member

    well i didnt mean i had a legal case :D

    wheres the master breeder info?
  16. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    He wasn't killed when the Thrulls revolted? :D

    Tag Guard
  17. TomB Administrative Assistant

    The Thrulls are revolting?
  18. Mooseman Isengar Tussle

    Yes, they are revolting.....
  19. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    The original (Fallen Empires) Thrulls revolted.... not sure about the current Thrulls, if they're under anyone's thumb to start another revolt or if they're "free"... :D

    Tag Guard
  20. Nightstalkers Creature — Nightstalker

    The skinbags are revolting!

    Eh, they're only good for armor anyways.
