It's so hard to get an ultimate though! Unless you use doubling season/doubling fish or loads of proliferate, it never happens. Plus it's so tempting to keep using that -3.

The +2 is a bit weak. Ob Nixilis Reignited is better, if you aren't already playing that.

Planeswalker deck Vraska from Rivals:


Use the ultimate, then activate Crypt Rats (it doesn't say combat damage) and kill all opponents at once! Definitely something that could realistically happen.  :icon_lol:

Some unstable cards have multiple versions with different text boxes but the same name and collector number. Very Cryptic Command has at least five (here are some of them).



I like this!

Crow Storm would be fine in EDH at least. I don't see anyone playing Empty the Warrens.

The squirrel lord would be good with Ghave!



Yes, it's worth waiting a couple more weeks for Iconic Masters cards. They should keep dropping.

I need to get Teferis for every blue deck!

Yes. All the 'joke' ones. There's a new set coming out soon.

I do like crow storm though:

Silver-bordered cards are EDH legal until Jan 15!

Hmmm.

"Do you want something to eat, Mortus?" Max says, his face concerned. "You look very tired. Um, you all must be."

They both listen attentively to her story. "A vampire? Holy Sigmar!" Max says. "I wonder how long that thing was down there? Centuries, maybe?"

Ragni shakes his head. "Your human cities always have undead underneath them!"

I believe it looks a little like a showroom.
So when it is bash time, their will be pink lights a specially for you :::cheers:::

That sounds nice!

The party turn away from the barricade and take a longer route back to the Ostmuur district where their inn is located. It's an uneasy journey through streets filled with nervous people, but they arrive safely.

They reach The Salted Salmon later that morning. Inside, they find that Max and Ragni are waiting for them. "I'm so glad you're all all right!" Max says. "Sorry we couldn't wait. Um, we took that man who was a prisoner in the evil temple to the watch station for help, and they arrested us both."

Ragni grins. "Max talked them into letting us go. I wanted to give them a piece of my mind, but I kept my mouth shut and let him handle it! You'd've been proud of me, boss."

"Ah, well, I did convince them we hadn't done anything," Max said, blushing. "Um, the desk sergeant was talking about fines and punishments, but then a patrol brought some looters in and suddenly we weren't considered important any more." He pauses. "We don't really know what's going on in the Paleisbuurt and Goudberg, but it sounds pretty bad."

"Just as well we sorted that elf stuff," Ragni says, "or they'd be in there making things worse!"

Also happy thanksgiving mates!

I hope you had a good time!

It is ground level.
It is about the same space I think.
Well, there seem to be 2 toilets now, so I think a lot better :mrgreen:

Does it have windows? The old one was a bit basementy!

Great photos. Table looks amazing

1am though!

Iconic masters has only been out since Friday, so I think austere command should get cheaper than that! I looked at Teferi earlier and then again just now and there are already newer listings at lower prices.

Yes, the hybrid filters desperately need a reprint. Graven Cairns was a special case because it was one of the Future Sight weird duals, and that's the cycle they put in Iconic Masters. So I don't think it precludes a proper reprint later. They could even put the enemy-paired ones in Rivals, since standard does need another enemy-paired cycle. I'm expecting enemy check-lands though.

Immortal sun seems staple-tastic.
I wish the dinosaur looked more like a dinosaur!

Thanks! Hopefully fine now.

Most prices are heading downward. A lot of the cards were expensive due to low supply rather than demand.

Some good ones for EDH that are already cheaper and should drop further: oblivion stone, graven cairns (nice land for vampire deck!), necropotence, genesis wave, restoration angel.

Cryptic command would need to get a lot cheaper before I'd bother with it.


Also: a couple more Rivals of Ixalan spoilers!

Both amazing.

It looks like the trouble is confined to the Paleisbuurt and Goudberg wards, so it should be possible to reach Ostmuur (where the inn is) by taking a lengthy diversion through Noordmuur.

However, the current situation does not seem threatening.

It's still sliding slowly downward. Just above 5 on ebay.

Iconic Masters is out now too. Teferi, austere command, cryptic command and others.

Definitely.

Julian thinks it would be possible to set fire to the slaughterhouse building without  much risk of the fire spreading elsewhere: it's beside the canal and has no other buildings in immediate proximity. It would also be simple enough to collapse the building with bombs if he wanted.

However, the scene in the hidden temple is incriminating enough for the deceased Groenwald that it's unlikely to be necessary to conceal anything.


The group return to the yard above. The sky is lit by the dawn glow, but the ominous scent of smoke is on the air. Elsewhere the city is burning.

They set off, keeping to alleyways as much as possible. As they approach the Paleisbuurt district they come across a makeshift barricade that blocks the road. It's manned by people who look like ordinary citizens. Everything seems relatively calm at the moment.

The group will either have to cross the baricade or go back and take a longer route to their inn.

Sorry! I've been away due to family issues!

Though not seeing the Back Table and its parade of horrible people has been nice.

I think it looks playable. You don't need that much power on the board to discount it to a decent rate. 12/12 trampler for six or so is good!
