interesting: not sure how counters work being on something which is removed from the game - can you take them off (somehow) using other (power conduit/aether snap style)

nice card and interesting mechanic though...

off topic: I've been out of london... i could be around next week, apart from monday, if anyone wants to meet up for magic/coffee something? also: I owe lorna money for tht box of cards.

Unfortunately, this mechanic doesn't work as written, since it implies you can Suspend at instant speed no matter what type of card.

Also, I hate cards that have activated or triggered abilities while not in play.

unless the word 'play' is meant to mean whenevr you could play it normally? (tenuous and not their usualy meaning i know)

I think play assumes 'play as normal'..

It's fairly clear what they want it to do anyway :)

Corel trickster (forums.mtgsalvation.com)

Strangling Soot (forums.mtgsalvation.com)

Grapeshot (forums.mtgsalvation.com)

Krosan Grip (forums.mtgsalvation.com) - isn't this an interrupt? heh

Scion of the Ur-Dragon (forums.mtgsalvation.com) (purrrr)

Chronotog Totum (forums.mtgsalvation.com) - wtf?

Kher Keep (forums.mtgsalvation.com)

Terramorphic Expanse (forums.mtgsalvation.com) - broken!!

hmm, looks like spiral has a bit of a mechanic overload.. and merfolk :)

I can see I'm going to have to rebuild a lot of old decks..

um... ok well that explains the name "Time Spiral"... this should be fun :) Though it's strange to see that volume of back-references/mechanics in a main expansion. I guess they aren't afraid of scaring newer players.

btw you worried me with "Corel" trickster ;)
