    Man, as someone with both a Planeswalker and Dragon collection, seeing these and knowing they're virtually impossible to get makes me very sad.

    My favorite dinosaur species! Wish it wasn't limited fodder. Frown

    Meh, maybe I'll be forced to use it to fill out Dinosaur.EDH anyway. I bought a Fungasaur for that purpose. I just wish these Enrage dinos were a little bit better. I see a really fun EDH deck coming together running stuff like Pyrohemia and Rite of Passage.


    I think this card is the perfect power level for the casual dino deck. I wouldn't blame dino fans for putting one in a standard deck either. The opponent would never expect it haha. If you're running an enrage package with some of the support spoiled, you have a decent card overall.


    It's an ok card. The problem is my interest lies in EDH. Sadly this card is just not that impressive there compared to many of the other insane cards you can be casting at the same mana if you're not trying to make Dinosaur tribal work.

    Ahahah, these flip cards are so absurd, I love them. Like even if they turn out to not live up to the hype, every time a new one is spoiled and I read it for the first time, my mind just goes "WHAT? No they didn't....".

    Dammit Wizards!! They just KEEP printing cards that fit my dream EDH deck but they won't print my dream Mardu commander that forces creatures to attack and punishes players for attacking. Frown

    This set is awesome. I'm so glad the foil rare sheet that leaked wasn't all there was to this set. They were hiding all the good stuff on another sheet. :p

    Feel like they dropped the ball on the commons. Do we really need so much stuff from RTR-KTK blocks? Couldn't we get a bunch of great CHEAP commons/uncommons that you can't get non-foil in non-toilet paper condition anymore like Diabolic Edict, Forbid, Capsize, Withering Boon, Skyshroud Claim, Vitalize, Wild Growth, etc.?


    Agreed. Too much modern filler. I really wanted to see more cool, old, wacky cards at common/uncommon. :/

    As a dragon collector, this set is a boon and a curse, hahaha! Love the new artwork versions of the Kamigawa dragons, but I hate the fact that they're being reprinted in one of these $10 pack sets AGAIN. Also not looking forward to getting the foil copies....but reprint of Thundermaw is nice. Maybe I'll be able to get another foil copy cheaper.

    Having mixed feelings about the set over all. I think I would have been a little more excited about it back before I gave up getting into Modern. Horizon Canopy, Ancestral Visions, and Cryptic are all cards I would have been super excited about, but now I'm kinda meh on.

    I'm mostly an EDH player now, but there's not too much here that I'm excited for. Even though people are calling this Commander Masters, I think Eternal Masters was better for me than this set. But part of that is just because a lot of the Mythics/Rares are from more recent times and I already have multiples of a lot of them. Outside of the Kamigawa dragons and a couple of rares like Austere Command, I don't see much I want. I guess that's probably a good thing, because Ixalan has a ton of stuff I want.

    So Vraska improved her ability and can now turn people into gold and jewels instead of just stone!

    She's pretty cool. I'm not sure if she'll make the cut in my Superfriends EDH, but definitely worth consideration. She makes a blocker, blows things up while giving you a bit of ramp and makes someone's life miserable. What more could you want?

    I like the "sac a permanent" throwback to the Mercadian Masques pirates.

    Why don't you put both cards and see?


    I don't know what I'd cut if I don't cut Kite. I like every card in my deck. Frown

    Such an awesome card. I don't know if I should replace the kite in my Omnath deck with this, though. The fact that the transformation is mandatory is a bit of a turn off. Sometimes I'd prefer to keep searching up lands for landfall triggers instead of getting a Maze of Ith that can tap for mana. Definitely a consideration for other decks though. Especially if I ever get around to building that turbofog deck.

    Hope this sees no competitive play so I can try to pick up a foil copy for my Riku deck.

    I like it. But come on, I need more Dinosaurs that are good in a terrible Dinosaur Commander deck. Frown I don't think 1 damage to each creature really cuts it in EDH.


    Psst, there's a mechanic on the dinos called "enrage"...I'm sure a RGW+ deck that already runs Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite will like it too.

    Mostly this is for limited, but I'm sure I can think of a few Johnny things for EDH. I object to "gladiodon" on linguistic grounds, though.


    Yeah, I know about Enrage, but is that mechanic on a few dinos really worth dedicating a deck slot to this card in an EDH deck? That's the question. If the dino general did something involving Enrage, that would make it a little more appealing. Then you could run with the theme, but we've basically seen all the rares/mythics and I'm not expecting many dinosaurs at common and uncommon that aren't unplayable limited fodder.


    Facepalm

    Dude....... we just started spoiler season.

    We don't even know how many are getting enrage yet.

    Besides the deck definately doesn't have to be focused on enrage it may be ETB and Ramp and aggro by what I'm looking at.

    And as for this role in edh you heard of weenie or token decks you could come up against right?

    And maro did confirmed you could draft a dinosaur deck

    We've seen all the rares and mythics (except for the RW Planeswalker, I believe). 99% of a set's commons and uncommons are usually limited fodder. There will probably be a couple of cool ones still unspoiled, but usually the exciting stuff is at rare/mythic, so I'm not expecting much for Commander. Commander is all I really care about so that's what I'm basing my opinion on. I don't care about whether Enrage is draftable or good in draft, because I don't draft. And pinging the board for 1 doesn't do much in Commander, even against token decks, because they usually play a lot of anthem effects.
