the Azorius symbol looks very Myst. the Simic one is a surprise, it looks like a sweet or a detergent commercial :) or maybe an air freshener... bubbles :)

Ooo Shiny! I wasn't a big fan of being a giant spaceship. I prefer the whole floaty , waily, evil type look.

Can't quite decide if this is good or bad.. (forums.mtgsalvation.com)

Yay, a decent *intresting* guildmage. Nifty, that's very breakable..

do you think you can use it to move "enchant lands" onto other types of permanent? (effectively rendering enchantment useless?)


read biography for - Siberman

 Siberman ( 12th Apr 2006, 14:03, Rank: Mentat )  reply

or creature enchantments onto non-creatures? afterall, it doesn't say "onto another permanent of the same type"


read biography for - karne

 karne ( 13th Apr 2006, 14:18, Rank: GSV )  reply

'Moving' would imply a legal target I should think. Otherwise it would just fall off.

i might have another use for insurrection - mass aura stealing!

(www.wizards.com) definitely useable, but a dragon that doesn't fly per se?!?

nice. i think that just used up all the orb dragons though :(

Superb, a nice addition to the 'baby dragon' set. 2RR is nice and cheap and the threat of doublestrike is horrible.. :)

Yay, Rebecca's back!

dormouse: time for a cat amongst pigeons deck?

Also, the invitational card: (wizards.com)

which seems to have been badly blunted. I'm not sure why they forced the 'attack vs desicard' choice, it just weakons the card. There's no point using it in defence either as while it's a 3/2 fs, you can't then use it's ability. :/

 Siberman ( 16th Apr 2006, 13:18, Rank: Mentat )  reply

that would work very nicely with radiant archangel

the cat that is, not the strange rakdos thingy

Visions is going online, hence a few creatures have changed/gained creature types. Notably:

Femeref Enchantress is now a human druid
Lichenthrope is a plant fungus
Necrosavant is a zombie giant (oooh :} )
Nekrataal is a human assassin
The phyrixian artifacts are now 'Constructs' and
Stampeding Wildebeests are beasts.

And snake basket now produces snake not cobra tokens :)

why be so unimaginative? there are so many slivers to choose from!
