For episode 41, Geoff Moes (@ThallidTosser on Twitter), Nat Moes (@GrandpaBelcher), and Josh Chapple (@joshchapple) talk about Modern Horizons with Allison Medwin (@trulyaliem), who worked on the exploratory and vision design teams for that set. Nat was also on exploratory design and was the set’s lead editor. Then we also talk about…cats!

I wrote about my experience with the London mulligan, looked at the available data from the trial period, and mentioned how WAR has shifted the format in the opposite direction from the trial metagame, so I really have no idea how the post-London metagame will look. Let me know what you think.

    @desolutionist I was being sarcastic - as in every set seems to push blue even further over the top. I'm a notorious blue hater, so I'd never actually want to see that.

    How about something basic like:
    Volcanic Mana Source
    Land - Island Mountain
    When ~this~ comes into play, target opponent draws a card (or scry 2 or 3?)
    T: Add U
    T: Add R

  • @thewhitedragon69 said in What could replace the fetches/duals as a default mana base:

    @desolutionist No, you give it island so you can run it as a 1-of and fetch it. But only make it for blue, not the other colors. Because...blue.

    I don’t follow your logic. The point is to not play fetches.
