            Gandalf the White should be Boros imo. He's more of a battle commander at the end, inspiring his allies with his presence and with the power of his elven ring.

              It'd be kind of impossible to make Gandalf not Blue. He's so intrinsically 'a wizard' that to make him not associated with the colour known for magic just doesn't really work.

                Yeah, but Gandalf isn't really a spellcasting type wizard like they're known in pop culture now. Gandalf the Gray is more of a historian, which does make him blue. When he returns as Gandalf the White, he isn't really like that anymore.

                It's more a matter of association. People associate Gandalf with wizards. He's up there with Merlin as 'THE wizard'. Whether or not he's different from the standard wizard doesn't really matter as much as the general cultural idea of Gandalf as a wizard.

        Arguably, the thing that sets gandalf apart from the other wizards is that he cares about people too much.

        Blue represents a more hermitic studied form of magecraft which does not really fit Gandalf.
        As others have said he's essentially an angel sent by god rather than a acedemic mage.
        Trying to fit things into MtG colours is usually fucky but I'd put him as Red/White.

        >Okay, I am going to address the elephant in the room: Gandalf the Grey is blue-red! I imagine it’s tricky to design a card for a notable character with a color in their name, as well as to make art that then still has to show all those colors. Could you tell me a bit about why he is blue-red and how it affected his look?

        >Aaron Forsythe, Vice President of Game Design: It is true that certain color words in characters’ names can complicate design decisions just because those words have such powerful associations in Magic. But thankfully, “grey” is not one such word! There are actually several versions of Gandalf in the set (including Gandalf the White, whose color identity will not surprise you), and we show him at different points throughout the story by making him different colors. Gandalf the Grey is the quintessential fantasy wizard, so it made sense for his card design to be blue-red as those are the colors that do the most “wizardy” things in-game. As for how that color choice influenced his art, we did ask for his sword, Glamdring, to have bluish energy, and the setting of Moria lends a red glow to everything. Aaron Miller did a great job infusing those colors into the piece while leaving his costuming the traditional grey that is so iconic for Gandalf.

        Just fyi, Izzet (red + blue) is the color combination in MTG for wizards and spellslingers, not mono blue.

          Holy shit they're retarded. Gandalf is iconic, but he's not a spellslinger. His magic is divine and he's sent not just as a literal guide, but as a moral guide, which his philosophy is extremely community focused. Gandalf is Blue White or Mono White.

              I agree anon. Green is a really tradition focused color but I think him being removed from the natural order being a deliberate part of his character keeps him out of Green. But he is explicitly part of the divine order as well as a faithful believer in the divine plan. This dude is so explicitly white it's a travesty that they went with "hurr durr, wizards Blue Red" despite not even understanding that there are significant differences between blBlue, Red, and White wizards in their own fucking universe.

        Didn't they say a while back that they consider mechanics over color identity for most cards? So he is red because red effects fit the mechanics they thought would fit him. They wanted him to have these spellslinger sort of effects, and that's in U/R's wheel house. You can't just give U/G an U/R card or something because the color fits the character

          Nay. I figured a copy would count as a cast especially with a new target. Me being wrong on that instance doesn't change much when you look at something other than lightning bolt like storm or cascade interactions. It's just now maybe two red mana for 12 damage (two lightning bolts) instead of 9 for 1.

          Card has very little balance thought put into it. Me being wrong on the specifics doesn't make me wrong in spirit of the argument

          Shandalar is alpha and beta basically, I seem to remember it having a handful of cards that are unique to it. It's a roguelike game where you run around in an open-world kind of deal collecting cards by beating enemies and clearing quests/dungeons and shit. It's actually pretty well put together for how old it is.

      Nah white is really strong too. You want red/green oil or white/green toxic. Red/white equipment can be good but requires that almost no one be taking the things you need for it or that you get one of the strong rares/mythics for it. Black /white toxic can also do well but isn't as good as green/white. Black/blue is kind of similar to red/white but worse than red/white even if you get it going. In general the real issue is how weak blue is and how unfocused the red/black archetype is.

      The whole reason they have to go to Mt. Doom is because it can't be destroyed any other way. Cards that remove indestructible exist, and I can pretty much promise there will be a card specifically for that.

      I'll take you seriously and give you a real answer.

      MTG and most card games and tabletop shit like DnD was always lefty.

      the thing that changed, is waht Leftism is, it "progressed" and the companies have tried to keep up, and its progressed from being the underdog and a counter-culture, to being the dominate force bent on purity and radical progressive ideals.

      it used to be progressive to have cards with the demonic entities and faeries tied up on them, that was "lefty" and against the puritanical right back when MTG started.

      now being lefty today looks like this.

          it is sort of, but nothing blatant in the art.

          there is a certain way lefties draw black people that you can feel the "woke" desire behind it

          they'll never draw them as decript or evil or weak looking anymore, always chisled looking gay man black guy.

          they USED to draw them like they'd draw anyone else (and the art was way better back then too) like Crovax here, who not only was drawn better and more complex, his character arc would never be allowed now.

              Honestly they play it safe in general. They'll have major story events and then have nothing actually happen in them except a token death of somebody they clearly ran out of ideas for (Gideon died because they had nothing else to do with him, for example), and when they DO suddenly make a lot of obviously bad changes, you know things are gonna get fixed. The current story stuff is literally 'too fucked up to not be solved'.

                It would, were it not for whites being the majority. That's why I pointed out that if you wanted white shit start bullying the Irish in real life. You can't just marginalize the majority, because that's not how that works. You got to pick a subset of the majority and focus on that. Pick on them enough and woke clowns start doing shit to revere them.

          i can tell you this: the art the card gets is related to what the card actually does. there are designs that seem "pushed" and playable even if barely playtested. design is capable of prediicting that every angel deck wants a Righteous Valkyrie since its printing. Selecting those specific cards over any other to depict black people makes it so theres more representation in the game

          It's more that the anime art was just different. MTG art has gotten really homogenised in recent years. There's still some artists here and there whose distinct styles peek through, but for the most part it's hard to tell at a glance who's drawn a piece, compared to the wider variety you used to get. On the one hand I get it, people like things to look broadly the same, but the sort of base appeal of cards, to me, is seeing so many different pieces of art in so many different styles.

                And other card games, namely Yugioh, just having an objectively better, faster, and better-looking client all while also being fully automated.

                Talking about Cockatrice which was mentioned in all three previous posts in the reply chain.

                Imagine someone presenting a game to you and it looks like THIS.
                And you ask them if it's an alpha or if they whipped it up together or if it was their first project for college or something, only to learn that, no, it's simply looked like this for two full decades.

        Build a core ruleset, use AI art, encourage other people to design cards. Create a criteria and community to decide which cards are officially legal. The goal is to create a fun and balanced game that's free to enjoy.

        It'd just need a digital platform, and I know fuck all about coding. But if you want ideas, there's plenty to be had. I'm sure someone will do something like that eventually.

    You know, when I was in high school, I was a bit of a card game geek and one of my friends asked me if I wanted to learn Magic the Gathering stuff at the LGS on afternoon. I told him no. I explained that I was busy.

    So I went home that afternoon and took one of those pipets from a kid's chemistry set my grandma gave me. I cut off the ends so that I had a thin, little tube. Then I sanded down one of the ends with a nail file to make it rounded. I fed it into my urethra and kind of moved it around a bit while I jacked off. Then I got a fire ant out of my sister's ant farm. I used a piece of paper to feed it into the end of the pipet tube and, given the circumference, it only had one way it could go. It crawled into my peehole through the tube and when it got to the end somewhere in the middle of my shaft it started nibbling on the inside of my urethra. It burned like hell, so I ripped out the tube but the ant didn't come out with it. The walls of my urethra crushed it. So I continued jacking off and when I came it was like passing a little, ant kidney stone.

    Now, despite this whole ordeal, it was still a better life decision and use of my time than learning anything about Magic the Gathering.

    It completely doubles down on all the hearthstone bullshit, but because the matches are only 2 minutes it's impossible to take serious. I actually had a lot of fun with it until I got to the part where loot boxes replace your guaranteed card drops. Getting a shitty avatar or fucking title after dumping hundreds of credits upgrading cards is infuriating. Not to mention the insane power creep that's already happening with the later cards. Or doing shady shit like deliberately putting op cards on the season pass to let people rape the ladder only to nerf them the instant the pass is over so it's shit by the time you can earn it F2P

          Duel Masters (ironically a WotC IP) solves it elegantly by just letting you play any card as a land of its color.

          Other games like Yugioh just do not have a mana system and thrive from it.

          Which is why those have been the top two best selling TCGs in the world for close to two decades now, while MTG and its myriad of apes haven't even been in the Top 5 since 1998.

          There's tons of alternatives. The entire point of mana is to limit the number of actions a player can take in a single turn. If your little brain can't think of any other way to accomplish this other than forcing players to shove 24 bricks in their deck, then idk what to tell you.

      You are effectively taking the worst aspect of Magic and making it worse.

      Land destruction is fine as long as you intend on winning next turn, at which point it is ostensibly the same as any other winning combo. The problem with land destruction mostly comes from when it draws the game out forever because the person who did it didn't actually have a plan.

        Online had a trading system, which was obviously a good and bad thing. You might have to trade 100+ packs to build the BDIF, but for-fun decks were dirt cheap. Live is moving to a hearthstone-like dust system, which will normalize card prices for better and for worse, except you can break down cards until you have a full playset of them, which is fucking terrible. The only other notable difference right now is that Live is only Standard format right now and is going to add Expanded later. Everything from before Black and White isn't transferring, unfortunately.

      . If you want this mechanic, it should be orzhov, so you can add vigilance and/or first strike (maybe increasing his cmc). The only "red" thing about this card is that his power is higher than his toughness, but this goes against his defensive nature. By trading red for white, you can make a card with toughness higher than the power within the flavor. The attack can be higher in white, but, in this case, you should use first strike.

I'd rather the ring do something unique and interesting instead of shill to commanderfags until the end of time, by just printing "duhh draw card on it". Just seems boring and lazy. If they do a Star Wars crossover and they make Darth Vader a effective-cost beater that has "ETB draw a card" and nothing else, it just seems like a massive retarded waste

    I got a sudden urge to "play" the Phyrexia set, but none of my friends are into the game and if I go to my local LGS it will probably end up like the last time I got the urge to play MTG, go to a draft night, build a dysfunctional White/Black deck, win maybe one round on a fluke, lose everything else, then go home.
    I am thinking of buying the prerelease kit, opening up the packs, building a would be deck and throw it into the drawer, and I think I would have as much fun if I tried playing the game
    But thats just dumb.

    Part of me wants to like MTG, but it seems that its not in a good place and if you don't have friends who are into it, it is very hard to relax and enjoy playing it.

        >if you don't have friends who are into it
        Yeah. I'd just recommend draft or maybe for you, sealed. Also I just wouldn't take shit very seriously especially limited. It's a card game, there's a lot of variance. Just play the rounds and shoot the shit.
        Although it would massively help if you had even a few friends you could just do sealed with and dick around

        Sealed was fun, I was at War of the Spark prerelease, but I just did not jam with any of the people there.
        I can feel none of my friends would be particularly interested either.

        I am sure this urge will pass, and then maybe suddenly reappear in 3-5 years again

      It loses you the game eventually because you do not have infinite life.
      In lore, the ring corrupts people/races at different speeds, so something dynamic like life burn is more flavorful than just a hard loss.

      You're correct about your other points, though.

          Platinum Angel would also stop you from losing to an effect that just said "You lose the game", anon. Any argument you make for dying to damage also counts for game loss effects.

          >It seems much worse than Phyrexian Arena for what it's worth though, maybe if it had flash I'd think about it.
          Arena does nothing the turn it comes out, only nets you one card a turn, and has two black pips.

          The Ring is colorless, draws immediately, and on your next turn when Arena is drawing you one (1) card, Ring is drawing you two. And then three, then four, etc.

          That's before addressing all the other fluff on it. Protection is a neat icing on the cake.

            I missed this part, that does increase the appeal. You're doing a good job selling it to me thanks, the protection from everything is of course useful I just wish I could get it exactly when I know I need it, some foresight and possibly some targeted discard could make it easier to foresee the optimal time to play it though.

                Cyclonic Rift is much much worse. It is instant, bypasses indestructibility, only affects opponents, and gets all kinds of permanents. They use it at the end of the opponent's turn, then tap for victory against a clean board state. It is basically a win button if it is not countered.

                I have this card, but I honestly think it should be banned. It is way too powerful at instant speed. It resets the game right before your turn, does not affect you and it is blue, so you already have a lot of other control tools.
                Similar cards in black or white are way more expensive, are not instant, or only affect creatures. The only way to avoid this card is by counter or phasing out your permanents (Teferi's protection), if you don't have blue or white, there is almost no way to avoid it.

                Imagine being so stupid that you don't understand basic English. Nobody is playing a 4 mana do nothing in a world of MH2 cards, and are definitely not fucking playing it in legacy or vintage.

                So? It's legal in modern and eternal, that's why making it an "archenemy" card is fucking stupid and so are you retard! Stop with this blatant edh shit everywhere and then bitching and moaning that it's not enough.

                Your logic doesn't even make any sense. You want it weaker so it wont see play in formats it wasn't going to see play in anyways?
                You're being intentionally dishonest acting like this whole set wasn't designed for EDH, when you and I both know it was.

          Fucking this. I can't believe how much they failed in the flavor of this set. Even the art was underwhelming for what it could be.

            The art is the worst part.
            They are clearly aping peter jackson when possible, but then do shit like make Aragorn black.

        If you need another card for the one ring to actually have its full flavor, you have fucked up on designing the card. It's like saying legolas doesn't need to be an elf because pic related exists.

    I've been learning Battle Spirits Saga so I can coach a friend with it. Not bad, makes sense seeing as the non-reebot Japanese version's been going really long now. Not sure if I'll actually buy any cards though.

    Here are some generically good izzet spellslinger commanders that are all better than Gandalf for reference
    I still agree to disagree but 'this card isnt busted because other cards are better than it' is kinda the whole point of whether a card is busted or not
    something cant be broken if its just blatantly not very powerful
    maybe in a format that restricts other better cards, sure.

        agree but no reason youd slot gandalf as your commander over him, hes just a "if I can cast this late game I can get some value" card in the Veyran deck at best
        it would be pretty cute to cast your mystical tutor and copy it, bolt your opponents, and give your guy +2/+2

      I don't play commander since I've got no friends that play magic but wouldn't he be decent slotted into a USA deck? If you can flicker him consistently to keep triggering his abilities I imagine he'd fuck. Are there any good USA color commanders that he'd fit well with?

        honestly looking at even the top like, 18 american commanders, I don't see any he'd have any particular special synergy with. the gandalf card is just too generically good without exceeding at anything
        he could be a good generic value in any of the spell-based commanders' decks, but not a linchpin in any sort of strategy that isn't massively convoluted

          A shame, the idea of flickering him over and over with spells to just spam the 3 damage pings amuses me.
          >but not a linchpin in any sort of strategy that isn't massively convoluted
          Well massively convoluted strats are my favorite, thanks for humoring my inquires m8.

      Sacrifice equipped creature in an amount of turns dependent on it's type with midges having the longest staying power.

      Add some shit about winning/losing the game perhaps.

        Actually, maybe an activated ability to phase out would be more fitting than unblockable.

      Protection from everything but cards named "mount doom" for starters.
      Equip X, equipped creature has shadow.
      X = number of burden counters, whenever equipped creature attacks draw cards equal to the number of burden counters.
      Last part needs to be some way to pass it around the table, like "any player can activate this equip effect" or just whoever kills the equipped creature gains control of the one ring.
