I wonder if we'll see and Kamigawa style flip cards for the werewolves... I think it would make sense.
Only Gate to the Æther provides that random, off-the-top-of-the-deck, hearing-your-heartbeat moment every upkeep. Is it a land? Is it Primeval Titan? It is another Gate to the Æther? Is it just a Rampant Growth? Kicking every deck up a random notch is one way to ensure games are both faster and more fun.
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.

I wonder if the poll is a sneaky preview of color-specific tribes from Innistrad. Werewolves might well be green, vampires in red aren't a huge stretch, zombies obviously remain black, and white might be full of Spirits that want to rule over their descendants with an iron fist and crush all rival clans to protect their kin and preserve order. So perhaps humans are blue in this set, hopelessly overpowered and resorting to clever trickery in order to survive.
He also promised more classic monster types would be revealed as the set gets unveiled—or should that be unshrouded? Mark went on to describe the challenges of making a horror set and assigning classic horror creature types to colors other than black. Zombies and vampires have traditionally been black cards, but Rosewater explained that there would be two types of Zombies. The typical risen-from-the-grave Zombie will be black, but the dug up and reassembled kind of Zombie—think Frankenstein's monster here—will be blue.
No love for kicked RIte of Replication on Reaper King? 25 vindicates doesn't do it for you?
For question 1:Vigean Hydropon? He costs 3 mana and would enter the battlefield as a 10/10, and he'd eventually lead to ten "more" power and toughness from grafting onto ten creatures. The problem is, it wouldn't be ten more total power and toughness, since as they gain, he loses, and Grafting doesn't get doubled as the counters are moved, not removed and placed anew.Still, it's my best guess right now. I'll search more tomorrow, and maybe come up with a better answer.Thanks for the fun questions! Math can indeed be fun! (I, too, have a degree in Mathematics.)
Isn't that kind of a bad idea? First your Reaper kings will all die thanks to the legnedary rule, followed by your opponents board wipe, but probably a nice chunk if not all of your board to. It's cool in theory but if that's what you wanted then why not just play Apocalypse and blink something nasty back onto your board? I could only really see that combo working on like at turn 12+ kinda deal where there are enough permanents out so that you don't cripple your board in the process as well.

All of the Reaper King triggers would go onto the stack at the same time. You can target the same permanents multiple times, and the extra triggers would just be countered for lack of a legal target.
Lol which horror creature type are you looking forward to most, Victims!? Really he should have written Hunters or just humans.
LOL, that just made me imagine victim as an actual creature type in Innistrad! Would be an interesting class though.
I have a question regarding the whole Doubling Season: What happens when you have 11 Doubling Seasons, and you make a single token that is a copy of one of those Doubling Seasons, then do that again, how many Doubling Season would you end up with?If you are wondering how I did this, Prototype Portal+Sculpting Steel, then used Liquimetal Coating to turn my Doubling Season into an artifact... The rest is self-explanitory.
The precurser golem copy ability isn't a triggered ability is it?I was under the impression that is was sort of a static ability.

Because frankly, being here depresses me these days.

The issue with the kicked Rite of Replication is that the copies don't get generated at once. So in the initial state, there are 6 Precursor Golems in play and 22 Golem tokens. You cast a kicked Rite of Replication on one of the tokens. This triggers six instances of the Precursor Golem's "copy the spell" ability. However, the copies don't get generated all at once, but those six abilities go on the stack. Then, the first trigger resolves, making 27 copies of the original spell. Then those 27 copies resolve, making a bunch of tokens. Then the second trigger resolves, making many more than 27 copies of the original spell, because it counts the number of golems in play when the trigger resolves, not when the original spell was cast.
I cant cast my vote.
