    Ninja of the New Moon is at the top of the Ninjutsu curve and probably will be saying "good night" to your op's life total when it comes down...6 power unblocked...

    Also of note, Twisted Reflection may target 2 different creatures. So you can combat-trick kill one creature while also killing a 0 power wall or something.

    I thought the power behind Llanowar Elves was the turn one ramp potential? This is likely a magical Christmasland type of card.

    Though it's possible this could work in tangent with Mono-Green Stompy...?

    IMO Ninjas are an Asian form of the European/American Rogue mixed with Assassin...so perhaps there are other planes that call their rogues Ninjas. Or there are planeswalkers who found Kamigawa and their ninjas, and brought the art of Ninjutsu to other planes. Just like how Exalted appears in multiple planes aside from Bant, I think Ninjutsu could have spread by being introduced or by separate development by minds that think alike.

    Whatever the background is I'm happy it's back and with decent representation!

    If you want a 50% chance to save your unearthed sliver from exile forever, use Frenetic Sliver's ability. It'll either be exiled permanently or it'll return to the battlefield at end of turn.

    Vigilance is better for combat, yes. But the combo potential is pretty spiffy. Think Magma Sliver, Psionic Sliver, (to a lesser degree) Quilled Sliver, and the aforementioned Telekinetic Sliver.

    And that's only within Slivers. There are plenty other degenerate things one can do with a lot of mana and a self-untapping creature.

    Maybe if there's a 1 drop Jhoira's Timebug-like card? Maybe that's being too optimistic?

    It becomes a Construct for snow Construct tribal? An artifact for Saheeli duplication tactics?

    Seems pretty awesome in EDH, somewhat bomby with support in limited, pretty meh in Modern with that CMC.

    In addition to the shenanigans this critter will enable, the name of this card has me scratching my head. Feels like one of those Asian menu items translated awkwardly into English. I expected this in the Global Series Chinese product, but on a normal MTG set...?

    Yes more tribal fun! Vampires, Spirits and Clerics will like this, any other good WB tribes?


    They're not restricted to WB but my Horde of Notions EDH deck wants things like this.


    The First Sliver likes this as well...with this out, Sliver Queen effectively says 3: Target creature you control gains indestructible until end of turn.

    I think I want an alter of Scour All Possibilities with Doctor Strange looking through time

  • posted a message on Leak Gideon (story spoiler)
    Art is great. I believe Howard Lyon is with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

    On the story/lore, I was expecting Gideon to become one of the Ravnica spirits, just like how Elspeth became a resident of the Therosian underworld. Perhaps someone planeswalked with him as he was dying to Theros? Maybe the Therosian gods call their true heroes home, like Disney's Hercules?

    As for the card itself, I can't imagine how this would be useful in standard, except for possibly flushing a hand that's land-swamped or that's been revealed to an opponent? Not very many white/red graveyard strategies I think.

    Damn. The art for Unlikely Aid, Gideon Blackblade and (card]Desperate Lunge[/card] paint such a metal picture of Gideon in this fight and I'm into it.

    Wait.

    Wait, wait, wait, ****ing wait.

    So a Zombie God shoots the hero out of a stormy sky while he's riding a freaking pegasus, only for the hero's fall is broken by an ancient, evil demon lord who swoops in to deliver him to his tragic final showdown with a multiverse-conquering dragon-god.

    Magic lore has officially peaked. Nothing will ever top this. This is so amazing and over-the top, it's borderline pornographic.

    It paints such a metal picture of Gideon in this fight that I'm into him. Wait, wait....
