the first two sets in the block have a large pile of manafixing at common and uncommon, so for limited I'm sure it'll be fine.

That's fairly normal for MTG. Stick the most highly-experimental mechanics/gimmicks (see also: Storm, Epic, "future-shifted") in the third set of a block.

You may or may not have heard that the name of the next block (not the next set) is ZENDIKAR. No real information has come to light on the set, so based merely on the name and one or two extremely fragmentary bits of info, the MTG playing retard community has offered the following guesses as to the Zendikar's nature.

- Dinosaurs/prehistoric block
- Aztec/Mayan block
- Pirate block
- Indiana Jones-like treasure hunter block

And of course.

- Treasure-hunting aztec dinosaur pirates block.

It occured to me that no matter what they make, it could not possibly be as awesome as a block that contained mesoamerican dinosaur pirates.

Me: How about we go back to Dominara.  Please?

WOTC: No.  Urza is DEAD.  Get over it.  Have more slivers instead.

Me: You suck, WOTC.

WOTC: There's a sliver pirate and a sliver dinosaur.

Me: ... ... ... Let me get my wallet.

Sliversaurus

When Sliversaurus comes into play, all other Silvers become Sliversauruses.  With their dominion of the prehistoric realms completely unchecked, you and your opponent cease to exist in this new and terrifying timeline.

The funny part is that I actually cracked to someone else earlier today "Actually, it isn't all that out of place for the oldest sets."

Like many other things marketed to males, MTG has always had pr0n. What kills me is how they dropped all pretense of MTG in that shot. Like, that really just looks like a shot from a White Wolf book, showing a minor goth chick mage.

No, you know what the funny part is? Quint Hoover did the artwork for the "Proposal" card.

So the new set is 'Alara Reborn' and apparently EVERY card is gold-bordered (more than one color)?  I seem to recall they tried this ages ago only they called it LEGENDS.

Nothin' wrong with that.  One of the funner decks I ever played was a white/green/black Invasion cycle thingy where every non-land was Gold.

Do you understand how terrifying the words “vibrating strap on” are for an asexual? That’s like saying “the holocaust” to a Jew.

I'm just waving the old-fart cane around.  I played from Tempest to Mirrodin.  Invasion was the best set for seriously fun sealed deck events.
