White Splicers vertical cycle: Three White creatures that produce 3/3 Golem tokens when they enter the battlefield and provide a bonus to each Golem you control, Cycle form each Level of rarity. Sensor Splicer, Master Splicer, Blade Splicer.
I just notice from the Splicers Cycle.
Mutagenic Growth is a green P. Mana only instant, and should be mentioned among the loose uncommon cycle.
Mirrodin should still become "Mirrodin Pure"[edit source]
Myself and most of my friends that play MtG prefer the "Mirran" faction from the "Scars of Mirrodin" block, and would like WotC to continue the story in a future block. We think that Urabrask and his Phyrexians should help the Mirrans Overthrow the other Praetors and give the Mirrans control of Mirrodin back. Like in most other Fantasy/Adventure stories, the good guys go through a time of severe disadvantage (anyone that has read the "Sword of Truth" series knows this very well), but still eventually win. Anyone that agrees should continue this discussion with possible storylines/events that could happen to help the Mirrans defeat the Phyrexians.
I agree, but instead of continuing the same story, it could be in an alternate reality where Mirrodin won instead of Phyrexia...
Functional Reprints[edit source]
Could Suture Priest be considered a sort of functional reprint of Bloodseeker? I know they have different creature types and Suture Priest has an additional effect of giving life when a creature enters the battlefeild under your control, but aside from that they have the same power/toughness and effect, and they both cost one colored one colorless mana.
Notable cards[edit source]
- Phyrexian Obliterator: An homage to the Suicide Black staple Phyrexian Negator that is on the Reserved List. Both have similar names and identical combat stats (5/5 trampler). However, the new card reverses Negator's drawback for a higher and more color-intensive mana cost.
- Sword of War and Peace: this completes the set of enemy color swords, from Sword of Fire and Ice, Sword of Light and Shadow, Sword of Body and Mind and Sword of Feast and Famine.
- Etched Monstrosity: continues the Etched creatures that began with Etched Oracle in Fifth Dawn and was continued with Etched Champion in Scars of Mirrodin.
- Mental Misstep: This card immediately impacted Legacy, a format highly fueled by one-mana cards, upon its release, and was banned from Modern when the format was codified by Wizards of the Coast. It was later also banned in Legacy and Extended. However, it could have been worse as the card was a phyrexian mana Force Spike before being changed by development.
- Dismember: Another phyrexian mana card which saw immediate wide application across multiple formats due to versatility, cheapness, and lack of color requirements.
- Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite: While initially considered average for her high casting cost, she's often played in reanimator decks with the advent of Unburial Rites, which can flashback for white. She's often used to shut down token decks, quickly destroying most tokens with her sheer presence and being an excellent blocker and attacker against them.
- Birthing Pod: The backbone of several combo decks abusing self-recurring creatures and creatures with effects when they enter the battlefield to produce continuous card advantage.
The set was spoiled in its entirety on April 19, 2011, before the spoiler season on magicthegathering.com began. This was the result of the Godbook, which contains all cards of an upcoming set, being leaked. Godbooks are sent to magazines for review purposes before the release of sets. In this case, the godbook was sent to Lotus Noir, which passed it on to pro player Guillame Matignon for reviews. Matignon was the World Champion at the time. Matignon in turn shared it with Guillame Wafo-Tapa and two other players in his group. One of which leaked it on the internet. Consequently, all four players involved were suspended by the DCI for a year and a half.
