3/4 for 3 was good back then and the drawback wasn't a thing because I played with scrubs, like me.

Its a common and by making it a 3/1 more things can trade with it.

Most of the werewolves were poorly designed "not worth the mana unless it flips" vanilla creatures.

The only well designed werewolf was Huntmaster, since you wanted to constantly flip him for both of his triggers.

I did like flipcards in general, though.
>>
>>45304938
>design

Ken Nagle was the one responsible for the abomination called born of the gods.

He's awful and has no power to make desoon approve pushed cards.
>>
Long as we don't go back to that shitty flip nonsense. It was interesting, but insanely impractical.
>>
>>45304938
Ken Nagle comes up with wacky shit constantly and that's both good and bad. It's usually fine with the Development team reining him in but he also hates any deck that he considers to be 'unfairly' playing Magic from their graveyard instead of their deck.
Which makes him a bit of a dissonant choice for the goddamn Innistrad block.
>>
Fuck the designers, if BFZ taught me anything is that the developers are the true turd kings of R&D.
>>
>>45304816

As some other anon said, the only interesting werewolf was huntmaster that made you want to flip it strategically and was powerful enough by itself.

Almost all others were crap until flipped and then didn't give you a reason to inflip it.

I hope we get a prowess based delver of secrets equivalent.

>>45305222
We're already seeing a (possibly minor) Devil tribal theme, or at least the basis for a R/b(?) tokens&sacrifice theme that makes heavy use of devils.

Also, in case /tg/ was not aware, Bloodborne: The Gathering confirmed, second set in the block was announced today. Set name is Eldritch Moon, and the splash art has some sort of nightmare-frontier looking spire bullshit taking over some innistradi town.
>>
>>45306699
You're not getting them until Innistrad Masters.
>>
>>45307681
Liliana was on the spash art as well.
>>
>>45307681
Lamplighter of Selhoff looks like a sweet enough design that I can see it included in BB. Given how boring the flavor is for BFZ block, I'm not too hopeful.

Emrakul confirmed

Innistrad is officially 100% Bloodborne

>Giving a shit about worst girl
Look man, unless we finally get to know more about the raven man, lili can go polish jace's keyrune for all I care.
>>
>>45307787
>Emrakul confirmed
Stop saying this. The word "Eldritch" does not mean Emrakul has anything to do with this set.
>>
Seeing as Emrakul is conspicuously absent from Zendikar, and seeing as the theme for SoI block seems to be a Lovecraftian twist on the gothic stuff in Innistrad, I conclude that Emrakul went to Innistrad to become the resident Azatoth there. Expect Eldrazi influencing dreams and color-out-of-space shenanigans.
>>
>>45304706
R&D has been looking for a creature keyword that isnt flying for those two colors, so yes, probably.
>>
Yes but will we get an event deck or clash pack?
Did they just forget to do one for Oath?
>>
>>45307858
Wizards discontinued the event decks for some reason
>>
>>45307858
Event decks were cancelled after Dragons. Then they went ahead and put one together for BFZ, and promptly re-cancelled them.
>>
>>45307833
Except it fucking does

The Eldrazi are actually just based on Eldritch horrors and there's no other reason the set would be called that. You're a dumb faggot and you'll realize this when Emrakul is in the block
>>
>>45307833
How stupid are you gonna feel when Emrakul shows up?
>>
>>45305006
Maro took full responsibility for Born of the Gods. He moved Bestow to Theros and then moved all the cool things Ken put in the design file to Journey.

That said, I find it amazing how Maro gets the blame for exactly everything except the one thing he claims responsibility for.
>>
>>45307891
I thought that they were going to rotate between clash packs and event decks?
Does anyone in that company have the slightest idea what's going on or what they're doing?
>>
Is there some /v/ meme I'm not aware of that would make Bloodborne: The Gathering an actual bad thing? The game was good, and the good old gothic/romantic setting is always cool
>>
>>45307895
You do know that the word "Eldritch" doesn't strictly apply to lovecraftian subjects right

It can be used to describe anything ghastly, weird or horrifying
>>
>>45307923
No one said that Innistrad being Bloodborne was bad
>>
>>45307950
Are you for real gonna be in this much denial

Do you honestly think that the use of the word Eldritch by WotC implies anything BUT Eldrazi

Are you that dense
>>
>>45307923
Personally, I have no problem with them exploring a lovecraftian angle to Innistrad, because I think it would fit well. I'm just hoping to god it has nothing to do with the Eldrazi, because nothing about them has been particularly lovecraftian since they showed up, and them showing up ruined the awesome D&D/Indiana Jones Adventure world vibe of Zendikar, and the return was entirely focused on colorless bullshit.
>>
Investigate, really?
I just don't fucking know.
>>
>>45308019
Shhh. It's okay anon. Just accept Blues Clues. Everything will turn out fine.
>>
>>45307989
Considering the word eldritch applies to the zombies, ghosts, werewolves, devils, vampires and demons, I wouldn't be at all surprised if emrakul decided that her presence wasn't required
>>
>>45307895
>>45307898
>>45307989
WotC has made numerous statements in the past about block design, narrative design, and the shift to the two-set paradigm that preclude the possibility of the Eldrazi being a focus in consecutive blocks.

I'm not saying the block won't have anything to do with the Eldrazi from a plot perspective, but anybody expecting Eldrazi creatures and Emrakul to show up at any point are setting themselves up for disappointment.
>>
>>45307999
>nothing about them has been particularly lovecraftian

>sleeping gods influenced entire civilizations
>gods turn out to actually be sealed apocalyptic horrors that don't give a shit about their worshippers
>one eats everything
>one makes everyone and everything go insane and fucks up physics
>one forces every living thing around it to experience the horror that is existence in the void, revealing the comforting lies people tell themselves about the world

Looks pretty Lovecraftian to me.

>>45308019
What are you talking about? What did I miss?
>>
>>45303615
It is a mechanic, it's what Phantasmal is now
>>
>>45308085
Notice I said "Since they showed up." They were fine in Zendikar and Worldwake. Then ROE happened and it became a stupid alien invasion story.
>>
>>45308086
>Investigate. (Put a colorless Clue artifact token onto the battlefield with "{2}, Sacrifice this artifact: Draw a card.")

Currently it's only on one card (White). Since it's a keyword rather than an just a card effect, it's going to be on lots, if I'm not bad at magic.

This is /tg/ who am I kidding.
>>
>>45308114
But Lovecraft's stories are about aliens.
>>
>>45308086

>>45305103
There's a werewolf that impulsesfor creatures on human side and cost reduces creatures on wolf in SoI

Because is the only faggot that put his face. The others are too coward.

Doug felt the shitstorm coming about oath and simply didn't answer more shit in his blog.
>>
>>45308114
But they are aliens
>>
>>45308114
So in SoI Emrakul will be a subtle influence from the shadows, just like in the original Zendikar block before shit hit the fan. So you would have no problem with that, right?
>>
>>45308213
Yes, he is the face of the company. It's his job. But it doesn't explain why people blaim Nagle for Born when that's something Maro publically has stated was his own fault.
>>
>>45308078
SS this so when emmy appears i'll post it everywhere, just like people said narset wasn't going to be a planeswalker
>>
>>45308332
And I'll post it when emrakul doesn't appear
>>
>>45303126
Every single piece of art spoiled so far feels extremely like Innistrad and gives me hope.

BFZ block was an all around mess.
>>
>>45308394
Think about this
Think about how stupid you are being

Is the word eldritch EVER used for things other than Lovecraft shit? No?

Would Wizards ever use it for a reason other than Lovecraft shit which inspired the Eldrazi? No?

Okay then. Stop being a fucking oblivious retard
>>
>>45307064
we need to go deeper

there will be exactly one reprint of Liliana and one reprint of Snapcaster, both randomly placed into two packs, neither will get new art
>>
>>45308456
it could be a red herring tbqhfamily

eldritch technically can be used for non-spaghetti, but it never is

but Magic players are autistic retards so they'll accept the technicality

think about it man you'll see
>>
>>45304967
LOL! Each of those can go a long way towards selling a set on their own. No way they are all reprinted at once. We'll be lucky to get 2 of those this set.
>>
>>45308456
We'll just have to wait and see bud
>>
>>45308248
No, it's a two block structure now. We need climax of emrakul rising now and him being beat on the second.
>>
>>45308158
>>45308221
If your only understanding of Lovecraft's work is "Lol, Alien invaders!" you clearly haven't actually read any of it. Lovecraft didn't write about aliens invading the world to devour our resources, who are beaten back by a scrappy band of superheroes who unite the world in a fighting force and kill them in the end. Lovecraft wrote about unknowable horrors from beyond space and time who warp reality by existing, and who could erase human existence with a thought should they ever deign to notice us. The stories don't end in triumphant victory, they end in madness and despair at the knowledge that we are powerless, meaningless insects in comparison.

The Eldrazi aren't Lovecraftian Horrors. They're fucking Galactus.
>>
>>45308498
Eh? None of them are big money cards
>>
>>45308508
>I'm being an actual retard and I'm getting called out on it super hard so I'll just say lets wait and see because I know any counter argument I'd have at this point would just be wrong
>>
>>45308489
It's a word that's currently undergoing semantic change. It meant, and still means to some degree at least, something of uncertain origin, but it's not commonly used anymore and most people who do know it associate it with Lovecraft's spagetthi monsters even though Lovecraft himself used it to refer to all the monsters and oddities in his stories, not just spagetthi aliens.
>>
>>45308248
If that's all it was, sure. But WotC will never use Emrakul like that, because they want to be Marvel and have the Avengers fighting multiversal threats in action-packed battles. As soon as Emrakul shows up and Eldrazi spawn/scions are running around everywhere, it ceases to be lovecraftian.
>>
>>45308508
how fucking dense are you?

for now on i'll assume you're just baiting
>>
>>45308608
yeah that's my point fratrem
they're using it to evoke suspicion of Eldrazi incursion, because they know it's ambiguous

they aren't retarded enough to actually put Emmy in it, but they want everyone to think that

>>45308552
>The stories don't end in triumphant victory, they end in madness and despair at the knowledge that we are powerless, meaningless insects in comparison.

>>45308659
So you've never read any Lovecraft other than Call of Cthulhu, if that. Gotcha.
>>
>>45308552
>they end in madness
This almost never ever happens. The Rats in the Walls is the one case I can remember where the main character actually ends up explicitly insane.

Several of the stories do however end with the main character either escaping with both his life and sanity intact, and in some cases, such as The Shunned House, with him actually managing to drive away some unspeakable horror.

It's really kind of depressing how accurate this is. Even down to the "They're an important and necessary force in the universe" thing they've been hinting at.

Nahiri is an active Planeswalker in this Block and has gone Red(White/Black)
this only adds to the possibility of Eldrazi.

also it seems she is mad about Zendikar and Sorin, unbeknowst to her that Zendikar just got saved.
>>
>>45308724
The shit you are spewing in this thread is just flat out wrong and has no real argument behind it. It's pissing me off because you're wrong and you know you're wrong but you just keep avoiding that and being a retard anyway.

Wizards is always 100% obvious with everything they do, and if by being "done feeding me" you mean you're done being a dense retard then please god stop feeding me
>>
>>45308636
And in the end, the narrator lives in fear and paranoia because he's convinced that Cthulhu's worshipers are after him, and he knows he didn't actually kill the thing because the head began to reform as soon as he hit it.

Until we have actual proof or confirmation that Emrakul is showing up in this block, you are wrong when you say "Emrakul Confirmed." Period. Emrakul, in your opinion, is heavily implied, but all you're doing is jumping to conclusions and making assumptions. There are plenty of explanations as to why Emrakul will not show up in this block that you're completely ignoring. I'm not even ruling out some kind of Eldrazi influence. But Every time you say "Emrakul confirmed," you are lying.

Man, so what? Lovecraftian doesn't mean that it has to slavishly repeat exactly what Lovecraft did. There have been superhero comics that dealt with lovecraftian themes. Stories where madness, despair and the meaninglessness of existence coexisted perfectly fine with superheroes saving the day (at the expense of their sanity, or innocense, or at least having been humbled somehow). Even fucking Galactus, written well, has been a lovecraftian horror. So chill.

>>45308552
Call of Cthulhu and Dunwich Horror end with human triumphs, however tainted in the case of Call. Cthulhu gets a boat-shaped snooze button to the head, and the Horror is soundly defeated with knowledge and pluck. The historical side of the Case of Charles Dexter Ward also features the common townsfolk successfully rising up against something magical and casting it down, though Ward's time period goes a bit differently. The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath, probably the most Fantasy of Lovecraft's works (or at least, the one of his fantasies that was extended and really tied in with the Lovecraft County/Mythos universe), also has a hero coming out more or less on top against a god-tier foe, though in Carter's case he more escapes than defeats Nyarlathotep.

You're not wrong, per say, but Lovecraft has a more nuanced body of work than all that.

Take, for instance
> unknowable horrors from beyond space and time who warp reality by existing, and who could erase human existence with a thought should they ever deign to notice us.
I'd say that's more prevalent in later writers who took up the Mythos. Lovecraft sure as hell had some of that -- Call of Cthulhu, notably, and those entities are lurking in the background a good deal.

But more of Lovecraft's work, I would say, deals with alien races -- they are generally our elders and betters, but they aren't entirely unlike men, in the end. The Mi-go can communicate with humans and be taken down with conventional weapons. Innsmouth was soundly defeated by the federal government. By the end of At The Mountains of Madness, the narrator sympathizes with the Elder Things - the Shoggoths are more horrifying, but in the end they as well are made of meat, or at least matter. The Great Race of Yith are pretty impressive, able to mass-hijack species with mindswaps but at the same time a rapport is possible with them in some sense. Horrifying, yes, but not everything is Azathoth, Nyarlathotep, Yog-Sothoth, or Cthulhu.

SoI theory thread? k.

Nahiri is obviously planning to fuck up Innistrad, which is kind of hard seeing as it's Innistrad. So what things could possibly complete such a task? She somehow b8s Emrakul to Inni is the most likely idea. If WotC has any clue to do a plot twist it could be something else entirely. Maybe she taps into her artifact fetish and white magic and teams up with waifu Norn to invade Innistrad and make New Phyrexia 2: Mechanical Boogaloo. Whatever happens I just want Elspeth to come back as a grimdark BW zombie planeswalker wielding the Whip of Erebos due to some Dante's Inferno tier shit.

The Great Race of Yith is as not-human as not-human gets. They are not-human in form, in ethics, in way of communication, in technology and architecture, in scale, in way of thinking and dealing with problems, in culture, in social structure, in fucking anything.

The only thing they share with humanity is a lust of knowledge, but that is as far as it goes. I do agree that the Elder Things are pretty clearly human-like in most facets

PREDICTION.

the 2nd set will have a planeswalker that flips into a creature and can flip back.
>>
>>45309297
Personally, I think the end of the block won't be Emrakul showing up, but Jace and Tamiyo/Sorin/Nahiri/Liliana/whoever the fuck else shows up discovering some horrifying truth about the Eldrazi. Probably related to the Gatewatch killing Ulamog and Kozilek, and the repercussions that Ugin hinted at. Probably something to do with the moon.

He's talking about a werewolf Planeswalker.

The human part is a planeswalker card, the werewolf part, a creature card.

It'll probably trigger with no planeswalker ability activation. I also predict either BR, BG or GR. Jund is also possible for Commander purposes.

she would lose White Mana, so I dunno about that.

maybe she could still somehow be White-Red after becoming a Vamp?

regardless, she's still young and that pretty much has to be adressed, seeing as even as powerful as she is, she's still just a Kor.

also all signs point to her being IMMENSELY powerful as a card and in lore, a fucking common with her on it has her basically pulling apart a city and throwing the city at the city.

Yeah, I'm hoping thevcreative team doesn't forget about this blurb

>It is not known whether any werewolves still exist on Innistrad, but some, perhaps many, might have escaped destruction by slayers and rejected Avacyn's eldritch transformation into wolfir. It was theorized that other lands beyond the great seas harbored exotic species of lycanthropes, and it has been speculated that some werewolves of the known world have fled for those far regions.

Obviously, that first sentence has been made moot by the spoiled werewolf card.

They might be saving a legendary flipper for the second set.

Speaking of the second set, we now know Liliana's making her appearance in Eldritch Moon. If we assume Jace and Nahiri are also being printed, this gives us two other walker slots and around four walkers competing for them.

Good thing we were talking about the second set.

Nah, at best we'll get a Elf Werewolf. There was a Vampire Dragon, so maybe a Dragon Werewolf isn't out of the question?

about 50 years ago, actually.

I just want them to be kind of cute in a goofy way but still a legit threat, so a goblin-werewolf just seems the best for this. Also GR has the most fun.
>>
>>45310076
it sort of does, getting "Mended" would mean she is where she was among oldwalkers, but now she's at that same level among new-walkers.

this is how it worked for Ugin and Nicol B, so there isn't any reason to doubt it working this way for Nahiri, who had an entire class of magic she invented.
>>
>>45309840
>>45310053

Ob Nixilis got nerfed just as hard by the Mending, so relative power between the two shouldn't have changed.

No she's a basic bitch now and a fucking goblin with a stick could beat her ass

yes, but he is still very powerful, just not Old-Walker powerful

getting "mended" dropped all walkers down a tier, but if they were still high their old walkers, they'd be high tier new-walkers.

she basically upheaved an entire city and threw it at itself.

if theres one thing I am hype for its the land artwork. Original innistrad block had some insane artwork on the cards
>>
>>45310198
it still gives a power boost, its just much fucking smaller.

now its more about personal power, and Nahiri was quite powerful with her unique abilities.

like Elspeth, for instance, Elspeth was shown and told to be immensely strong, other Walkers were in awe of her, and she took down armies at a time.

the only thing that ever held her back were here immense baggage and insecurities.

Tibalt will have to show up on either set and will probably be BR/Rakdos. That's a lot of prominent black planeswalkers. Hell, even Ashiok would probably fit in the theme and general setting as the UB planeswalker. And then Garruk as the GB one and you have the whole pie.

Shadow over Innsmouth, The Festival, Dragon, Facts concerning the late Arthur Jermyn and his family, the Witch House for sure.

The Whisperer in the Darkness, Buried with the Pharaohs, From Beyond, the Dunwich Horror, Pickman's model, the Thing on the Doorstep, the Horror at Red Hook, the Horror in the Museum, are a few I am not 100% sure on without consulting my books. Insanity is a theme in his narratives. Both of his parents died in a asylum. Even if the protagonist doesn't go mad, someone in the story will.
>>
>>45311110
Just remember, Moonmist flips HUMANS, not werewolves. This means Delver and even the Origins walkers are flipped by it. And it's a Fog on top of that, which means you hold off Affinity/Memedrazi for a turn and can blow out Infect players mainboard.

>Pious Evangel

>Avacynian Missionaries
Probably some lifegain stuff, maybe flips into a lifelink black vampire?
>Daring Sleuth
This one is pretty self explanatory, I have a strong feeling his human form will be like curiosity except instead of draw a car you get an investigate ('Whenever this creature deals damage to a player, investigate') OR perhaps he will have something like 'when this creature deals damage to a player, flip' and his flip will be something good like '1U: investigate'
>Uninvited Geist
Spirit card that will probably have something to do with Skulk mechanic or some other unblockable shenanigans
>Accursed Witch
I'm thinking in terms of flavor probably like when it flips put some amount of -1/-1 counters on a creature, to emulate a hex
>Kindly Stranger
This one sounds really fun, hoping for some Chris Hansen shenanigans.

>All the red cards
All of them are werewolves except Skin Invasion.

I'm going to go with a wild guess and say skin invasion is an Aura that transforms. I have a pretty cool idea it'll be like 'When enchanted creature deals combat damage to a player, flip skin invasion' then the flip side might be like 'this creature gets +3/+0 and has menace' or something

>All those green cards are probably werewolves too

Except Autumnal Gloom. That card is most definitely an enchantment. Probably something to do with lands or maybe a tribal (Autumn is the season of harvest afterall, but the word gloom makes me think some kind of tribal for a night-based creature, aka the R/G tirbal werewolf)

>Harvest Hand
Scarecrow of some sort

>Thraben Gargoyle
Self explanatory, a defender that flips into an aggressive flyer.

>Neglected Heirloom
hopefully something like that mythic dagger from Dark Ascension, forget it's name, the one that summons the 13/13 demon

Anyways Innistrad was my all time favorite set in terms of flavor
>>
>>45311254
no, Ugin told them the plan and they did it, they didn't entertain the idea of killing them because Ugin said so.
>>
>>45311160
it's actually better than fog, because it doesn't stop wolves or werewolves from dealing damage. Moonmist to flip Huntmaster into a 4/4, deal 2 to a creature and 2 to the opponent, then block with the huntmaster and his wolf token, then either play another spell EOT to gain 2 life and get another token, or attack with a 4/4 trampler on your turn.
>>
>>45311337

I mean, lets not even touch on how the cultist's religious beliefs might play into this.

Or would he just sacrifice goats, since his cannibalism would leave him with no interest?

it would be bad, Nahiri's abilites were so great that Ugin attempted, and failed to replicate her powers/magic.

>>45311637
jeez you guys are simple.
Cannibal denotes one who eats its own kind, ergo a cannibal vampire would drink the blood of other vampires
(which, incidentally, was the outcome Sorin sought to avoid by creating Avacyn)
MTG zombie just means an animated corpse.
So what we have here would be the animated corpse of a vampire which fed on its own kind, and was subsequently killed.
Maybe granddaddy Markov, the first vampire, is back as Lilliana's bitch boy.

Question, how us delerium less complex than Threshold?
>>
>>45312625
Upside:requires less cards
Downside: You need 4 fucking card types

IMO spell mastery was the best of this graveyard card effect types
>>
>>45312645
threshold was an amazing mechanic in an amazing block
>>
>>45312625
Threshold was an inevitability, Delirium requires at least a bit of deck building. You either need to mill some lands into your graveyard or run cards you wouldn't normally run to trigger delirium. A deck with a few good Delirium spells might run 4-of oaths of Nissa to more easily trigger it with legendary and enchantment. They might also run enchantments you have to sacrifice to trigger effects, or run auras since getting 2 for 1ed turns on your powerful cards. Definitely adds more deckbuilding shenanigans then the threshold 'wait till late game and you'll activate it'
>>
>>45312376
derp, yes I do.
>>
>>45312680
shit mechanics in a decent block, name one threshold card over $5.00

Meanwhile, spell mastery has
-Necromantic Summons
-Animists Awakening
-Talent of the Telepath
-Exquisite Firecraft
-Dark Petition
>>
>>45312446
I want Ludevic transforming into a Zombie Horse.
>Ah, you were at my side all along...
>>
>>45312293
We had a white soldier that came back as a black zombie. I think it would be cool to have a flip card that comes back as a spirit. Maybe a new version of the Geist of Saint Traft?
>>
>>45312851
nah have him turn into Swamp-Thing
>>
>>45312437
Hm?
>>
>>45312333
I looked up on the gather, there were only two. Malignus and the Raging Poltergeist.
>>
>>45312831
>-Necromantic Summons
>-Animists Awakening
>-Talent of the Telepath
these are not real cards

if we're going by "is or has been played in real formats" then here are some threshold cards:

Barbarian Ring
Cabal Ritual
Cephalid Coliseum
Putrid Imp
Werebear
Nimble Mongoose

if you want to talk about sweet/powerful casual cards, there are:

Stone-Tongue Basilisk
Mystic Enforcer
Far Wanderings
Krosan Restorer
Krosan Beast
Kirtar's Wrath
Hunting Grounds
Cephalid Sage
>>
>>45312910
nah their reprinting him in the dual decks remember? I wouldnt mind seeing Saint Raban coming back after Avabruck's destruction.
>>
>>45312958
They meant in the fluff.
>>
>>45312377
Both a headless horseman and a spectral ship/ spectral pirates sounds like a cool idea.
>>
>>45312831
>name one threshold card over $5.00
>proceeds to list a bunch of Spell Mastery cards that aren't over $5
Actually, the only one of those that isn't a $1 bulk rare is Exquisite Firecraft.
>>
>>45312959
I think they didn't like threshold because it was something you have to constantly be checking. Especially since in block, shit entered and exited graveyards all the time.

With spell mastery, it is sort of a set it and forget it, especially since it only needs two cards.

I'm thinking Delirium will be a primarily limited mechanic, like Fateful Hour. It'll get one token rare and that's it.

I do like it though.
>>
>>45312511
I could see BUG or UG working. For EDH purposes I would like to have a three colored Ludvig.
>>
>>45313003
>Fateful Hour
this was a super cool mechanic desu

i don't think i ever had a game where it mattered, on cards like gather the townsfolk, but i always dreamed about it while reading the card
>>
>>45310086
It's really not fair to compare Nicol bolas because yea, nigga got mended. He's still a fucking Elder dragon. An OG.
>>
>>45313038
Plus he drained the entire plane of Alara for most of its mana. Dude's walking around with a ton of power.
>>
>>45312960
Yeah that's true. Plus this is a return to Innistrad, not a prequel set or anything. I'd still like to see a human/ spirit flip card though.
>>
>>45313036
I made a fun casual deck with it, Death's Shadow, Dark Tutelage and Phyrexian Unlife. It is a lot of fun when you hit that magic number.

>>45313022
They don't normally do random three color legends in the middle of otherwise monocolor blocks. He'll probably be two color. Hopefully UG than boring ol' UB.
>>
>>45312942
If it isnt a creature card it doesnt count. For all we know it could be shark sized

>>45312959
Necromantic summons is filthy good. Managed to snag a Prophet of Kruphix with my Olivia Voldaren EDH deck and rained shennanigans on my enemies.

Do a new Saint? Actually expanding the saints might be a good idea. Kind of like the angels from Avacyn Restored.

>>45313184
AKA i have no valid counter to this so im gonna spam bullshit

>>45313137
Granted zombify is better for mana costs but the spell mastery has its uses
>>
>>45313234
Zombify can't grab enemy stuff.

It is kind of like a bad Beacon of Unrest. It is probably better than Rise from the Grave, but it is about as good as reanimation since they realized how stupid powerful it can be.
>>
>>45313234
cards i'd rather play than necromantic summons in EDH:
beacon of unrest
extract from darkness
ghastly conscription
rise of the dark realms
torrent of souls
tempt with immortality
unburial rites
reanimate
animate dead
diabolic servitude
>>
>>45313348
You forgot Necromancy
>>
>>45313368
yeah knew i was missing one

also forgot about any creatures with the ability to reanimate like geth, nezumi graverobber, and phyrexian delver
>>
>>45313348
And Dance of the Dead. Coming back tapped kinda sucks but on utility creatures like Crypt Ghast or whatever it doesn't matter so much

At 2 mana you can't really complain that much
>>
>>45313348
Don't forget the 'its the same mana cost, but way more enjoyable in EDH' living death.

I swear, if Delirium doesn't give us our Modern-legal Nimble Mongoose, I'm gonna flip.

>>45309759
You know what I like about Innistrad? Other than Delver, Liliana, Snapcaster, Hunstmaster, Grafdigger's Cage and Cranial Extraction? With cards like Town Gossipmonger and Village Messenger, you feel like you're playing one of those German-designed boardgames.

What the fuck is Skin Invasion though, it doesn't sound like a creature to me.

I think there was a bit of random Innistrad lore that said that there was a werewolf that never turned back into a human. Probably the best candidate for a legendary werewolf (commander). Maybe with a mechanic that allows you to transform more easily when you WANT to as well. The current spoiled werewolf had an activated ability on the human side.

On the more serious hand, that B for a 2/2 that gains you life is really solid, and Pore over the Pages will lead to a scenario where you toss the madness bolt then bolt something. Its going to be the greatest ass pain.

It is a sorcery speed Vile Rebirth with trinket text. I like Vile Rebirth. Not so much this.

>>45315337
Won't be as good as vile rebirth for sure, but its going to hose delirium in limited and that lifegain might be important in a more controlling deck. I feel like it's a good change to vile rebirth to make it more of a draw for limited control decks.

Ludevic according to the planeswalker's guide and the flavor text is alittle two faced.

In the guide he's an old potion poisoned rich merchant who people seem to revere.

In the flavor text he's the visionary necro-alchemist and a bane to the cathars.
