[Battlebond] Spoilers

23 posts in this topic

This set has gotten very little attention since WOTC wanted Dominaria to have the spotlight.

Basically, it's a set designed for two-headed giant play, but can also be played/drafted normally.

We had the land spoilers, but here are some cheeky partnering spoilers.

Not sure how I feel about parasitic cards in Magic, seems a bit too much like Yugioh. If I pack one I want to use, I have to go buy the other? Kinda crappy.

Also, I need to note, that these wouldn't even work as Commanders, as they don't share a colour. 

Granted, this is only the first look. I am excited to see how this set turns out.

EDIT: Nevermind, after a little digging, it seems that Partners appear in packs together (meaning double rare packs) and they can Partner with each other for EDH, but only each other.

Well, for 2HG, the idea is that they do work together.

I don't mind these things in supplemental sets, since they are supposed to be more fun. It's hardly as parasitic as the draft-matters card of Conspiracy, where you can't use those cards in typical casual decks.

The art direction is horrendous. 

Yup, either crappy Freemium game CGI, SJW nonsense, or just leftovers in the WOTC reject pile :D

The new Doubling Season art makes no bloody sense... again, this feels like art that was sitting in somebody's file that they wanted to use :P

Hopefully they've used up all the left over Kaladesh at submissions for this and we can now be done with them

 

On the plus side, finally a True Name Nemesis reprint, thanks Wizards!

WOTC really wants to sell this set, putting in some pricey cards. I like it.

Now, this card is going to be a casual/EDH all-star

While the "arena combat" theme isn't my favorite, I really like that how unique and DIFFERENT it feels.

I really don't get that Doubling Season art at all, though...

Nope! $3.99 MSRP on packs. :)

This set is already looking better than Iconic Masters and Masters 25.

I love this card.  Probably my all-time favorite.  In a casual, janky, goofy kind of way.

Not many value uncommons and such, but the rare and mythic slots are full of all-stars and the price of packs is normal... I am looking forward to 1-2 drafts.
