  • Pyretic Ritual - first Timetwister, now Dark Ritual? #mtg #m11

    I hope @fivewithflores has something good for us tomorrow. Other than the Lich, the previews this week have been a bit meh. #mtg #m11

    I hope a pull a Juggernaut at the prerelease and fight today's preview card. I get to say "I'm the Juggernaut, Lich!" #mtg #m11

  • Boo SGC is out. #mtg #m11

    #mtg #m11 @mtgaaron just confirmed Elvish Archdruid reprinted, that should debunk the silly Imperious Perfect rumor?

    I think Grave Titan is easily the strongest of this cycle. #mtg #m11

    Interestingly, Green Titan gets any lands, not just basics. #mtg #m11

    Today's previews weren't as exciting as I had hoped. Though Grave Titan is solid, we already knew about this cycle. #mtg #m11

    Gaea's Revenge needed trample. Or "Protection from nongreen" #mtg #m11

    Hm... @maro254 's article mentioned "rare and mythic rare cycle that you'll be learning about pretty soon", what are they? #mtg #m11

    Aw man, the number crunch already rules out Char in #m11. I need a replacement for Staggershock, it's kinda bad unless opp's at 4. #mtg #rdw

    Turn 5/6 Primeval Titan fetching 2 Eldrazi temple. Untap, swing, 2 more Temples, land drop, Emrakul. #mtg

    I wonder if Wizards will someday have a set with randomly assigned card numbers. Just to screw with number crunchers. #mtg

    I would love me some of those Japanese alt. art Jace/Chandras. Probably gonna be hella expensive though. #mtg

  • Seriously? Imperious Perfect?

    I'm not sure I get it. Isn't Overwhelming Stampede just a crappier Overrun at rare? Sure, the CC is slightly easier, but still... #mtg

    Combust needed "can target creatures with protection or shroud as if they did not have protection or shroud" #mtg #m11

  • Still missing from today's M11 spoilers: Steel Overlord, Roc Egg, Frost Titan. #mtg I'll go to sleep, maybe they'll be there when I wake up!

    Ah, Steel Overseer just got spoiled! #mtg

  • Lorwyn prerelease in two days, and of course MTG Salvation is spoiler-complete. Some thoughts on cards: Thoughtseize -- B Sorcery (Rare) Target player reveals his or her hand. Choose a nonland card from it. That player discards that card. You lose 2 life. My take: Undercosted cards that demand a 2 life payment are usually pretty good. (See: Shocklands, Char, Psionic Blast, Vampiric Tutor). Thoughtseize is widely anticipated to be the chase rare of the set, with pre-order prices starting at a staggering 17.50 USD. That seems bit too high for a utility spell though, so I'm not going

  • The full spoiler is of course now available at MtgSalvation; I'll talk about planeswalkers first. Each planeswalker is rare and has 3 abilities: a normal attack, a special move, and a finishing move. Ajani Goldmane 2ww Planeswalker -- Ajani +1: You gain 2 life -1: Put a +1/+1 counter on each creature you control. Those creatures gain vigilance until end of turn. -6: Put a white Avatar creature token into play with "This creature's power and toughness are each equal to your life total. Loyalty: 4 My take: Unlike every other planeswalker, resolving Ajani's "finishing move" does not guarantee a
