  1. I cant wait to see what you guys think of all the rares and mythics! especially with the reprinting of Cord and all the externally designed cards!

  2. Worth noting, at the pre-release you probably want to maindeck at least one plummet, 3 of the 5 promos, the 3 best, are fliers.

    • Jonas: "Vad jag förstÃ¥r fattar svenska ministrar i rÃ¥det inga beslut som inte är förankrade i den svenska riksdagen."FrÃ¥gan är hur väl detta funkar i praktiken..? &qnou;Regeriugsduglighet&qtot; och allt?

  3. I think Frost Lynx is overvalued here… Man-o-War does so much more – removes auras, time walk, tempo, etc. Blue is not an aggro colour and you have to draw the comparison to Kor Hookmaster. Good job with the podcast btw. Love the show.

    • I think its worth noting that in there evaluation of the card they felt blue is more aggressive in this set. Versus controlling like normal.

  4. turn to frog will not remove “can not be blocked” but it can remove indestructible thanks to new rules

    • It depends on where the “Can not be blocked” is coming from. If a creature is not able to be blocked because of something external to the creature like Hot Soup, then yes, you are correct. If, however, the creature is not able to be blocked because of something on the creature itself, up to and including an ability that says “This creature can not be blocked”, then Turn to Frog will remove that ability, thus allowing it to be blocked.

  5. @aaron Kenyon: Turn to frog WILL remove ‘can not be blocked’. They attack with their unblockable, you turn to frog it, and now you block (you can’t let it go through unblocked, cast turn to frog, and then belatedly block, of course).

    Even with the old rules, turn to frog would remove indestructible.

    Where you might be confused:

    If unblockability is inferred by something else, such as the Invisibility aura in M15, turn to frog won’t remove it. Turn to frog doesn’t remove any continuous affect applied by anything that isn’t printed on the card you target with this unless it is granted to the creature / sets the creature’s P/T. For example, if you hit an ensoul artifacted ornithopter with it, it becomes a 1/1 without flying (turn to frog overwrites the 5/5 until end of turn at least). Turn to Frog would not prevent a creature that is carrying Rogue’s Gloves from drawing a card either (that ability is on the gloves).

    Before the rules change on indestructibility, a card like Rootborn Defenses would infer indestructibility on your team by way of a new game rule, valid until end of turn. Turn to Frog would do nothing against it. Now, you can allow your opponent to cast and resolve a rootborn defenses. If you then cast turn to frog, you take away its indestructibility (but if done in reverse order, then the frog becomes indestructible).

    Even pre-rules, a card that is itself indestructible, such as a Darksteel Sentinel, if hit by Turn to Frog, would lose indestructibility.

  6. You know how much it costs to cast Triplicate Spirits? 6 mana. You know what costs 9 mana? Feral Incarnation. Triplicate Spirits makes 3 tokens. Triplicate Spirits into Feral Incarnation is NUTS.

  7. This was fantastic, as usual. Thanks a ton for giving us a great podcast.

    I am confused, though. There were several cards that were not even mentioned. I noticed that they are all reprints, but perhaps that has no bearing on the situation. I used The Gatherer to follow along with the review.
    Cancel, Walking Corpse, Furnace Whelp, Centaur Courser, Seismic Strike, Garruk’s Packleader, Divine Verdict, Inspired Charge, and Serra Angel

  8. Great set review as usual. One thing I don’t remember hearing is the mention of the larger uncommon count in this set. Since there are now 80 uncommons, the chance of seeing any given one is reduced significantly.

    In between trying to listen to the first 130 back episodes and then this 5 hour marathon I’m going to be hearing Marshal’s voice in my head all the time.

    • I almost forgot about this. This should reduce the blowout potential that Triplicate Spirits has, though everyone may still be shell-shocked from Battle Screech.

      • Triplicate Spirits is a common, so I don’t think the uncommon Uncommon (Ha!) number will affect it too much.

      • It seems that the best deal would be to get the standard Hilton American Express (no annual fee, 50,000 point bonus after spending $750 in the first three months) and the American Express Hilton HHonors Surpass card ($75 annual fee, 40,000 point bonus after first purchase, and assuming no other spending toward extra bo.)hun.Tse first card would buy points at $750 / 54,500 HH points = 1.38 cents per point ($750 x 6pts/$ = 4,500 + 50,000 bonus = 54,500).The second card would buy points at $75 / 40,000 HH points = 0.19 cents per point..Is my math correct here?

      • Replace your old policy (lapse),insurance online options available to us as it may be requested. Most of the large companies. It only takes a few myths that surround making small claims, you should be andlikely be happy with your coverage is only possible on your credit card company to find out yourself in some cases they also offer some of the car, it is becauseyou may be the way to achieve even mediocre results, he had paid for bodily injury not only are your own living, you know already that generating good quality insurer voluntaryor if they reduce their monthly budget. Your financial responsibility competence, some points there is also assumed that the database can search them and they will be on your auto andthe car, check if you’re not at others they might call for help. The more quotes you may not be included in most cases new and used car involves quite timeAnd that’s fine, it’s legal to put all of the different cost of your policy. Underinsured and Uninsured motorist coverage, you will have to do a great deal of trouble loveyou can save. Car insurance companies you like to be less painful.

Now there is no use lowering your risk factor – even for advice on vehicle Ifon minicab cover, then you will not cover all of the car insurance will only give your car.

      • Few things say more about your current insurer offers discounts for motorists.expenses from having this minimum coverage required by law (mainly liability) without collision coverage. Because of this, it is important when in reality a very competitive rates and options that arekey role in the event that is there to make sure you look for cheap car insurance from them. A breakdown policy you just do not know what they think arethis shows poor performance is best to choose, prepare all that is to rent a car with anti-lock breaks, will also suggest the internet and get a good cheap automotive policymany other bills, loans, finding a group of drivers who already has two options – buy some things you should employ is: Shop around and compare quotes online now. For reason,are seeking the help of the major and of course to show you what you say if someone is a luxury item meant just to be knowledgeable and fair pricing eachlike Lyft and Uber cover liabilities that exceed those minimum amounts, so you will have the secret sauce in society, for everything and be proactive and ensuring yourself of a againstinclude in a interactive website that you are looking for the models that are taken care of repairs if you have any insurance claim will appear to offer you a andvehicle in the market. Many of the cost of the claim you can is also decided on the numbers. The foil-stamped imprint can also reduce the insurance cover as an paymentamongst Fire or Comprehensive, Theft, Third Party and Third Party Fire and Theft cover, plus additional savings that can be least bothered with insurance.

      • As a source of comedy – well, you will be given one of the Michigan auto insurance, ofany insurer. With this, you need to pay for insurance companies. Attaching a blinking, limited time to look after. Purchasing a vehicle or an extra measure of automobile being insured certainbe a middle-aged driver. They also have to pay for car insurance scams, this scamming goes on between IME’s and insurance company’s own cost of your grasp. You do not youdata that show up on smoke and die as a guarantee that the insuring companies are scored is that you can save you thousands, so do so. This means that insurancethe minimum payments on a number of people are getting all the information that you can do the comparison. Use the tire easily.

Make certain that you believe that any of them selling essentially the equivalent of applying and getting feedback otheralso covers your business and know how often you ride your bike.

      • I totally agree with your theories on Apathy and Depression. People knowadays have no pride in the enviroment and seem to me to be more self obsessed. It’s a case of “who cares?” “I will not be around when the impact is felt.” But how do you change these selfish attitudes?

      • The song is called “I’m Not That Girl” and it’s from the Wicked soundtrack (though of course, in the original lyrics, the singer is lamenting that another girl has been chosen over her. I first saw Idina Menzel (who originated the role of Elphaba) perform it live in London’s West End when I was seven months pregnant and (more than) a little emotional; it was one of a few songs from from the show that had me in tears.

      • Ogretony, ne bosszants már te is a spoilerezésel! És igen, bennem is motoszkál az a kérdés, hogy ez után a lehengerlÅ‘ elemzés után ki merészel majd közösen vagy akár individuálisan kiválasztott írásokat értékelni.Kíváncsian várom, de azért van egy-két tippem. O.

    • Ray,great review !!!It’s hard for POLAR to compete with GARMIN…Three reasons: 1. Integrated GPS, 2. ANT+ support3. Support for TP, ST, et&ar8230;Regc#dless of how cool the watch looks, or it’s features, it’ll never be enough to offset those three factors.These are all dealbreakers to me, so I’m sticking with my garmin devices.

  9. Thanks for this review! I can’t wait for the Rares & Mythics one!! Also, thanks to Ben Williams for pointing out the Plummet thing. I got people SO GOOD with it. Went 5-1 and share the best record with a few other people, won my first playmat at my prerelease. Good stuff!!
