Guilds of Ravnica: Allegiance Spoilers

42 posts in this topic

Interesting new hand disruption spell for black. It's technically better than Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek if you cast it for it's Spectacle cost, but that's going to be difficult to trigger and probably not possible on turn 1. Plus it costs a full 3 to cast normally. I doubt it'll see a ton of play, but it's interesting.

And this is cool too. Another Gravecrawler/Dread Wanderer type of card.

So would Teysa cause a dying creature's effect to trigger twice or just other permanents. To me it reads that it wouldn't double up death triggers on the dying creature, because that creature would be in the graveyard already. Also it doesn't say creatures you control which if solid.


I think you're right! Bummer!

Wow! Haven't seen something like this in awhile! A 4-mana wrath without an obnoxious drawback. Heck, it actually has an up side! Though I suppose the mana cost is a bit awkward. Still, pretty decent!

Re: Teysa, you get 2 dies triggers for creatures with afterlife, etc.

  • 603.10 Normally, objects that exist immediately after an event are checked to see if the event matched any trigger conditions, and continuous effects that exist at that time are used to determine what the trigger conditions are and what the objects involved in the event look like. However, some triggered abilities are exceptions to this rule; the game “looks back in time” to determine if those abilities trigger, using the existence of those abilities and the appearance of objects immediately prior to the event. The list of exceptions is as follows:
  • 603.10a Some zone-change triggers look back in time. These are leaves-the-battlefield abilities, abilities that trigger when a card leaves a graveyard, and abilities that trigger when an object that all players can see is put into a hand or library.
    Example: Two creatures are on the battlefield along with an artifact that has the ability “Whenever a creature dies, you gain 1 life.” Someone casts a spell that destroys all artifacts, creatures, and enchantments. The artifact’s ability triggers twice, even though the artifact goes to its owner’s graveyard at the same time as the creatures.

More red off-the-top card advantage. Note that you can play ANY card exiled by this.

For that special person you really hate in your EDH/Commander group.

 

I want to build a Xantcha (sp?) deck and have that in it :P
 

How about a new win condition?

Anybody doing prereleases? If so, what guild(s)? 

 

@Aurian and I are planning one on Saturday. I am going against my Orzhov blood and going GRUUL, just for something wildly different. Aurian is waffling between Orzhov and Simic.

Is it just me, or is this card pretty ridiculous?  Probably won't see pro play, but man it's going to be fun in casual.

Went Orzhov in my ore release and had crap fares with the exception of Etherial Absolution which was a game winner every time I go  It out. I also had 3 of each the Grasping Thrulls and the Syndecate Messenger, a bunch of low drops with afterlife and an amazing removal suite of 8+ ways to kill oppenents’ stuff. 

 

I steamrolled the whole events and went undefeated due to the amazing number of fliers I pumped out.

ALL PRAISE THE SYNDICATE YOU FILTHY DESERTER

I did ok. 2-2, one of my wins was the bye. But last game, went against a Gruul deck and I got lucky on my draws. 

My store does packs each round for prizes. I made each one of my matches fight for the pack.

Promo was Kaya's Wrath. Saved my ass a couple of times. 

All in all, 10/10, good set, all praise our lords and saviors of the Orzhov Syndicate.

Well, I ended up going 3-1 with Gruul. A fairly mediocre pool, but it had an aggressive/consistent curve, and two of my opponents got mana screwed :(

Faced @Aurian in the finals, and she rekt me :( This card is an absolute beating.. (as she noted above)
