Magic Arcana / Card of the Day / Daily Decks - March, 2010

This thread is for discussion of magicthegathering.com's Magic Arcana, Card of the Day, and Daily Decks features for the month of March, 2010.
Today's little surprise was certainly interesting.  But I'm rather annoyed to note that they didn't actually answer the question: what is the Eye of Ugin, and where?  Frankly, the legendary land from Worldwake doesn't seem to connect at all to the reference on Ghostfire.  And as for the card, I sure hope not all the Eldrazi will be this over-the-top.

As far as the benefit of the rest of Magic is concerned, gold cards in Legends were executed perfectly. They got all the excitement a designer could hope out of a splashy new mechanic without using up any of the valuable design space. Truly amazing. --Aaron Forsythe's Random Card Comment on Kei Takahashi
Most awesome Arcana to Date. What a nice fatty, defintely getting him for my Font of Mythos/Howling Mine deck.

Yeah, it was lame that it didn't answer squat (Who exactley is Ugin, How many eyes does he have, Is he a walker, etc etc). But the preview card made it awesome enough...

We get the picture though, Ugin was responsible for helping imprisoning the Eldrazi. The fight between the walkers broke the Eye, the Eldrazi are free. And now the giant squids are angry.

Holy begeezus, that's a cool way to preview a card.  I wonder if there will be any non-mythic eldrazi.  If not, there will be a really crazy all-mythic deck running around.

I really want to cast that guy.
A+ for presentation.
First off, awesome presentation. Next, I just want to say I really, really hope that WotC does some serious playtesting so we don't have one or two mana creatures running around with anihilattor. If they do make a low cmc creature with anihilattor I hope they have the sense to keep it a 0/1 or something. But, it'll be so great if they pull this off right.

Crossing my fingers.
Good thing that I picked up 4 Eye of Ugin's lol. Also, it looks like summoning trap is going to get real good as well. You won't get to draw 4, but Annihilator 4 sounds good enough Laughing
Note the collector's number.  Number 6.  That implies that 1) colorless spells are going to be the early numbers, and 2) there are at least 5 other colorless eldrazi , and considering K is the 11th letter, there's likely at least 10, probably a bit more.
One thing I found interesting to note was that he has the same kind of transparent frame as the Planeswalkers, so you can see art all over the card.  I wonder if all the Eldrazi are like this, or if we'll get to see some cards in a "standard" Colorless frame similar to the one found on Ghostfire (sans the dorky circular art window).

THAT WAS THE GREATEST EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE
I am definately going to cop 4 Eye of Ugins as soon as possible, and would love to construct a Colorless deck when Rise of the Eldrazi comes out.

I assume that with RoE the only cards that will have Annihilator on them is going to be Eldrazi cards.  But man seeing that Big ass Eldrazi on the field would make me crap my pants if I had no counters or Removal in hand.

I noticed the collector number 6 too. However, I don't think that the colorless cards come first.

I think the set will be all-colorless.

This doesn't mean that we'll need no colors to play it, but I'm guessing that there will be many cards like Ghostfire, which cost colored mana, but are still colorless.

Most awesome Arcana ever! I totally fell for it and didn't realize it was a flash until...

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

And then a preview card!

Oath of Druids just called. Progenitus - you're fired.

Is the absence of type word "artifact" intentional or typo? Also a bluish hue to the frame and card draw. Hmm? I wonder what WoC is up to now.

Is it me, or does this card become the perfect sideboard tech against any mill deck?  Doesn't this completely wreck that archetype?

If you can't actually play it it'll be a dead draw, so I wouldn't say it's an auto-include for all decks, but those which especially fear mill can certainly use it.  Like many others, i suspect, I originally assumed that last clause was just the standard DSC/Progenitus bit, but instead - yow.

A note to those who are planning on buying 4x Eye of Ugin, though:  keep in mind that it doesn't produce mana, and is legendary.  Plunking down Urzatron followed by turn-4 Eye of Ugin still leaves you 1 mana short of throwing Kozilek into play.  Multiple Eyes only work with Mirror Gallery, and I suspect that low-cc Eldrazi will be few (though I'll be disappointed if there isn't at least one 2-drop in the bunch who can play Ornithopter with an Eye out).

I think I look forward to building decks that have a lot of "disposable" permanents specifically to thwart Annihilator.  Although for what it's worth, unless you give Kozilek haste, he's not going to get a chance to annihilate much of anything very often.

PS, Bojuka Bog and Walking Atlas are tech against the reanimation clause.  This is hilarious.

Funny story: InQuest Magazine (I think it was InQuest) had an oversized Chaos Orb which I totally rooked someone into allowing into a (non-sanctioned) game. I had a proxy card that was a Mountain with "Chaos Orb" written on it. When I played it, my opponent cried foul: Him: "WTF? a Proxy? no-one said anything about Proxies. Do you even own an actual Chaos Orb?" Me: "Yes, but I thought it would be better to use a Proxy." Him: "No way. If you're going to put a Chaos Orb in your deck you have to use your actual Chaos Orb." Me: "*Sigh*. Okay." I pulled out this huge Chaos Orb and placed it on the table. He tried to cry foul again but everyone else said he insisted I use my actual Chaos Orb and that was my actual Chaos Orb. I used it, flipped it and wiped most of his board. Unsurprisingly, that only worked once and only because everyone present thought it was hilarious.

Hi guys! So, I'm a sort of returning player to Magic. I say sort of because as a child I had two main TCG's I liked. Yu-Gi-Oh, and Pokemon. Some of my friends branched off in to Magic, and I bought two pre-made decks just to kind of fit in. Like I said, Yu-Gi-Oh and Pokemon were what I really knew how to play. I have a extensive knowledge of deck building in those two TCG's. However, as far as Magic is concerned, I only ever used those two pre made decks. I know how the game is played, and I know general things, but now I want to get in the game for real. I want to begin playing it as a regular. My question is, are all cards ever released from the time of the inception of this game until present day fair game in a deck? Or are there special rules? Are some cards forbidden or restricted? Thanks guys, and I will gladly accept ANY help lol.
I have the same problem with women.

That's what RPJesus tends to do. That's why I don't think he's a real person, but some Magic Card Archive Server sort of machine, that is programmed to react to other posters' comments with obscure cards that do in fact exist, but somehow missed by even the most experienced Magic players. And then come up with strange combos with said cards. All of that is impossible for a normal human to do given the amount of time he does it and how often he does it. He/It got me with Light of Sanction, which prompted me to go to RQ&A to try and find if it was even possible to do combat damage to a creature I control (in light that Mark of Asylum exists).

Initially yes, Wizards was married to blue. However, about a decade ago they had a nasty divorce, and a few years after that they began courting the attention of Green. Then in Worldwake they had a nasty affair with their ex, but as of Innistrad, things seem to have gotten back on track, and Wizards has even proposed.

omg that was awesome. the eldrazi look sweet. i hope that the make alot of em. I need to get some Eye of Ugin!
This is what I play Magic for. For a set that looks like it will literally shake up all the metagames. I can see every format in the game being able to use Elrazi cards. I personally already have visions of windmilling them into play in my Cloudpost deck. They are large enough and have rediculous enough abilities to satisfy Timmies everywhere, and relevent enough triggered abilities to appeal to Johnnies as well. I am so glad to see the beginnings of a set that I'm actually looking foreward to. Hasn't happened since Lorwyn.

Keep up the good work, Wizards. Just please, please, please don't make Eldrazi horribly unbalanced. Make them good enough to effect the game, but please, no more faeries and no more jund. We had to wait until two sets in to the new block for jund to die off, and even longer for Faeries. Let's have at least nine or ten solid viable decks after RoE hits. PLEASE.

@Sam_rem: I totally assumed it was a shuffle into library. It does completely kill mill. That is hilarious.

but where DID the other fork come from?

Lord_Zed: I was at my friends house when this happened. He's married and his wife was an excellent baker. She had baked a homemade apple pie the night before. I was hungry, and my friend convinced me to try those low carb monster drinks. Before this day, I had never triend energy drinks before. Boy was I in for a treat. When I tried that first monster, I really enjoyed the flavor, but the taste that it left in my mouth wasn't so good. What was my solution? Drink another! before I could finish drinking that 2nd monster, I felt it already kicking in(these drinks were not very far apart, we're talking minutes here) my friend decided that it was a good idea to whip out that fresh pie his wife made the night before. I didn't know what to do, since I felt incredibly invigorated, and at the same time, freaked out by the rush I was feeling, but I was also hungry, and my friend have me an entire plate with a fork and said "help yourself." He extended his saucer to me, and I cut him a piece of the pie and handed it to him, then I looked at the pie, noticed that the pie was in an aluminum holder, and dumped the entire pie onto my plate and started eating it with 2 forks. I don't know where I found that other fork, it probably came from my friend. Anyhow, his wife wasn't happy, and I was already in magical christmas land. 2 days later, I was in my friends bed and I slept for 14 hours. His wife outlawed my from having any of her baked goods for a while(which sucked because I could just show up at there house, steal some sweets, and leave) and said I couldn't have any energy drinks at her house, unless under close watch. My friend, on the other hand, had to take me out to a steak dinner, because apparently I won a bet where I climbed a tree and didn't die.

That Feldon's Cane thing that it does is what makes it so good for Oath, besides being a nasty card. Oath mills themselves like crazy and always has to run Gaea's Blessing to shuffle itself back up. But now you can put two of this guy + Iona as the only three creatures in your deck. If one eats a Swords, oh well. You can also do things like "In response to your Swords, Edict myself" or "In response to your Path, sacrifice Kosilek to my... and gain..." Or discard him to Frantic Search.

He can be chump blocked by 1/1 tokens. And you won't draw the 4 cards if you Oath/Piper him into play. And he doesn't have shroud like Inkwell or Progenitus. However:

EDIT: Oath = fail?

I don't think there are any cards like that. There are things that prevent you from activating activated abilities, things that increase their cost, and things that counter them, but I don't think anything triggers from them specifically. There are things that trigger from targeting, so that might be relevant, but I can't think of anything that triggers from targeting a player. I'm almost positive there's nothing that triggers from damage being prevented.

Oh good lord, this was an amazing way to preview a card. If all the Eldrazi are like this, then the money I spent on my Eye of Ugin's was wasted, but I wouldn't be to upest about that.

Why do some many people seem surprised/excited that Eldrazi aren't artifacts? I mean, it's not like there was anything hinting that they would be, and we know from Ghostfire that WotC was planning on making colorless important...at that point, everything being artifact as well would distract from the point, would it not? 
Stop using "IMO" in sentences that aren't opinion. If you don't think a deck will ever be tier 1, that's great - but it's not an opinion. It's a prediction of the future.

Well, the set's probably all the same color, or non-color, so perhaps they arranged it by P/T? Since the set has Eldrazi in its name it is unlikely that there are only 5 cards with J or lower in their name.

Am I the only one who giggled when he kept going and going and going and going and going and going??? I thought it was a wee tacky.

Look at the card. Now back to Jace. Now back to that card, now back to Jace! Sadly, it isn't Jace, but if it stopped being a junk rare and became relevant, it could act like it's Jace. Crack some Worldwake. What do you have? You have a Jace, the card you wish this card could be like. Look again. THE CARD IS NOW A $75 BILL. Anything possible when you play Magic with Jace and not junk rares.
As a side note, that no-border art is some pretty cool shizz. I may just get one for that.

Yeah, I think that this set is probably all-colorless, but like you said, it doesn't make sense that they just alphabetized it. I forget if I read on MTGS or here, but someone speculated that 'real' colorless cards came first, and then 'fake' ones, like Ghostfire, would come afterwards, organized in normal WUBRG order.

Mmmm...boys giggling are cute. :-p

Yes. I was so ecstatic about the Planeswalker art extending under the textbox, not to mention un-lands in Zendikar...and now this? Wotc loves me today. :D

Ha, yeah, I'm completely with you...I've been investing in Summoning Traps ever since that one article came out where there was a really popular one in FFL...I just got this strong feeling that it actually, was a good deck, rather than just some cheezy thing that wouldn't last in competitive play, and if there are many more cards like this, I think I was right. Especially since Eye can tutor and Jace can place it on top...probably a better way to do it, but I let obsessive Johnny's and Pro's figure that out.

One thing I found interesting to note was that he has the same kind of transparent frame as the Planeswalkers, so you can see art all over the card.  I wonder if all the Eldrazi are like this, or if we'll get to see some cards in a "standard" Colorless frame similar to the one found on Ghostfire (sans the dorky circular art window).



It's acutally nothing like the planeswalker-frames, this one is completely borderless. Here's to hoping that a light coloured edge like that won't get ruined as soon as you touch it (as the case is with all white bordered cards).
