This thread is for discussion of magicthegathering.com's Magic Arcana, Card of the Day, and Daily Decks features for the month of November, 2011.
Funny how I've only read 4 Magic novels in my life (well, almost 5 now) and half of the books mentioned were ones that I read.
OMG click HERE! OMG! How to autocard and use decklist format

For autocarding, write [c][/c] with the name of the card inside it. [c]Island[/c] = Island For linking a card to Gatherer without writting the name of said card for readers, use the autocard brackets together with and equal sign and right the name of the real card. Then put the message you want inside the tags, like you would do with autocarding.

He thought about the Phyrexians, but they were covered in goopy oil that would make his nonexistant hair greasy. He Tried out angels for a while but they didn't sit quite right. Then, he looked under "e" (because in the Elder Draconic alphabet, "e" for Eldrazi is right next to "h" for Hat) in his Dark Lore of Doom and saw depictions of the Eldrazi, and all their forms. "THIS SHALL BE MY HAT!" he declared, poking a picture of Emrakul, "AND WITH IT I WILL USHER IN A NEW AGE OF DARKNESS -- ER, I MEAN A NEW AGE OF FASHION!" And so Nicol Bolas masterminded the release of the Eldrazi.

The art for the promo go for the throat is awesome I will have to stop by my FNM place and pick some up.
Besides a different artist how is that alternate art?
Same position of attacker and victim, nearly the same expression on the victim.  yuk.
HOLY smokes it isn't even a different artist!  I don't get it.
It's different enough. The victim actually looks scared on that one. On the original, the victim just looked annoyed.

I always find funny, how the show us at the end of ever month the new FNM as a fresh new, but we already know that month card like from almos a month and a half ago, like for instance, the December FNM is savage lands.
I wish they'd bring back the FNM logo on the FNM foils. The generic swoosh-and-star just doesn't do it for me.

Come join me at No Goblins Allowed


Because frankly, being here depresses me these days.

Geist-Honored Monk at last. I've waited weeks for this.

Cheers Montykins.
Oh no... is that horrible brown blob on the left-hand side going to be a consistent feature of the Innistrad wallpapers? I can't even chop off the left-hand third of the image with this one like I could with Paraselene, because you've covered up her hand with it!

Why this brown cog? It's not like it looks like you're looking at the art through a window of some Innistrad home or something. It's not even in the shape of the Avacyn logo. It's just... a mucky brown splodge covering up nice bits of the artwork. 

It defies understanding even more than the notoriously bad Dralnu, Lich Lord wallpaper from a few years back. At least that one was focusing on interesting bits of the artwork, even if it did so in an impression of a demented cut-and-paster. Here it's just like... someone threw some mud over the top of the Geist-Honored Monk. Why?!
I have to admit, the "frame" on a lot of wallpapers seems distracting/unneccessary.  I know it's for set identification, but isn't there a less-obtrusive way to do that?  The art is amazing, and that's what the wallpapers should be: 99% -- if not 100% -- art.
Nobody likes frames on wallpapers.

And gum is DEFINITELY not food. It's just something you put in your mouth.
In my opinion I think the frames in the walpapers are really unneccessary, it doesn't work at all for the image in intangible virtue, for Geist-Honored Monk in the other hand it might be good, because the composition of the image helps it to keep balanced, however the red shade kind of ruins it, because it doesn't match the color scheme of the given art piece. WoTC, you have a lot of resources, can't you hire a better designer to do the job, I think it would really improve the appeal of your wallpapers

I find it interesting that other than the -1/-0, it is obvious what animate dead does by 2 words-animate dead. And yet you all come across as being really condescending and self-righteous over how you make cards instead of just respecting the fact that with a wording that is 'way off' they made a game back then in a way that was so resonant you have a job today. Show some freaking respect man.

It's not like your ilk is making the greatest players of this era mad at you now, so on top of that, you may not have a job tomorrow.

I think it's about time we got a "functionally similar, but mechanically functional" version of Animate Dead. Something like:

Reanimate Dead      1B
Enchantment
When Reanimate Dead enters the battlefield, put a creature token onto the battlefield that is a copy of target creature card in a graveyard.
Tokens created by Reanimate Dead get -1/-0.
When Reanimated Dead leaves the battlefield, sacrifice all tokens created by Reanimate Dead.

It's not super clean or functionally identical, but I think it gets the point across.
Wow awesome loam deck, I really want to check it out for a legacy tournament. Unfortunately I checked the card prices and it costs more than I paid for my car ~$1300usd. Maybe wizards should reprint some cards for legacy so people can play sweet decks like this!
Re: Animate Dead. How about:


    Animate Dead - 1B

    Enchantment

    Imprint - When Animate Dead enters the battlefield, if it's on the battlefield, imprint a creature card in any graveyard onto it. Animate Dead becomes a creature that is a copy of the imprinted creature card. (It's still an enchantment.)   

    If Animate Dead is a creature, it gets -1/-0.


Heh, it reads funny. But it is slightly shorter. And I think it plays mostly the same. It'd be an Enchantment Creature, which is not thad different from a March of the Machines when you have a Mycosynth Lattice out. And just like an original "animated" creature, it can be dealt with by either naturalizing the enchantment or regular creature death.

However, I'm not sure about the cards' names and casting costs. I think it would be an "Animate Dead" creature with CC 1B, so, that would play differently whenever the "dead" card's name or CC would have been relevant.

Oh, I should go look for the Melvin forums ...
The new Animate Dead art…it's zombie Sun Titan! Sweet!
However, I'm not sure about the cards' names and casting costs. I think it would be an "Animate Dead" creature with CC 1B, so, that would play differently whenever the "dead" card's name or CC would have been relevant.

Since it becomes a copy of the creature, all aspects would be copied (except for the added Enchantment type), but if there was an effect "Destroy black Aura", that wouldn't work the same anymore.

Edit: Besides, the -1/-0 rider would be overridden by the copy effect.

There's that, and it would have a weird interaction with Pull from Eternity which the original hasn't. And a simple Unsummon effect wouldn't work as expected either.

Not to mention "Protection from black" creatures. Nope, your version doesn't work on too many levels.

Heh, nice try but that version won't get any Enter-the-Battlefield abilities, nor will you be able to make choices that would normally be made when entering the battlefield (like Iona). Your version makes not being able to effectively reanimate Iona, and all of a sudden allowing Animate Dead to reanimate Akroma... whoops
This must be a joke. I don't believe that they'd print that text on a card. Maybe they're waiting to reveal some sort of new keyword or terminology?

Hah! I guess I missed a *few* (read: a ton of) details. This must be one of those cards that is too flavourful, at the expense of mechanical simplicity.

One could also go with something like the Aurification route.

    Enchantment

    When CARDNAME enters the battlefield, if it's on the battlefield, put target creature card in any graveyard onto the battlefield under your control, and put a reanimation counter on it.
    Creatures with reanimation counters get -1/-0.
    When CARDNAME leaves the battlefield, its controller sacrifices a creature that has a reanimation counter on it.

But obviously, multiples would not work as one would like.

Anyway, if the real Animate Dead didn't have to lose "enchant creature in any graveyard" it would be one whole line slimmer.

That version also doesn't work with protection-from-black creatures.  With a normal Animate Dead, the enchantment would fall off once state-based actions were checked, and the creature would die as a result.

Of course, the problem is that when Magic was first inaugurated, tournament play (and on a tangent, who was or was not among the "best players") wasn't exactly a consideration--and therefore, neither were the most spiteful editions of rules lawyers (the not-spiteful can be identified when they argue a point that, if left uncontested, would have left them in the BETTER position). Unfortunately, attempts to interdict said spiteful edition of rules lawyers required exactly THIS sort of clumsiness.

I still wonder if giving official tournaments prominence was really a good thing for the game as a whole, putting aside popularity concerns. This was supposed to be Vorthos-primary at onset, not Spike-primary...

Maybe they're waiting to reveal some sort of new keyword or terminology?

Doubtful.

Damn. I hadn't noticed that.

Major disappointment that they'd actually print such a clunky card now.

What would happen if they changed the rules to say that the target of an aura needs to fulfil the criteria when the spell resolves - if it changes to an invalid target, the aura doesn't fall off since it's already on. Would that actually change anything significantly other than making stuff like Animate Dead a lot easier to read?
Wow.. Animate Dead would have been a great choice for a full-art textless version. :/
It's likely that there's a rule or set of rules that prevent this from being viable, but what if Animate Dead were changed into a Sorcery?

Animate Dead
1B
Sorcery
Put target creature card from a graveyard onto the battlefield under your control.  Animate Dead becomes an Enchantment - Aura with "enchant creature" and "When Animate Dead leaves the battlefield, enchanted creature's controller sacrifices it.  Enchanted creature gets -1/-0."  Attach Animate Dead to the creature put onto the battlefield with Animate Dead.
And here's what it was changed to in 2007, when the invention of "Aura" let the text box hold the complicated description of what exactly an aura was supposed to be enchanting:


Given that the word "Aura" appeared in the previous text, it clearly wasn't the introduction of that terminology that lead to the new wording, but rather the printing of Spellweaver Volute opening the door to Auras enchanting cards that aren't on the battlefield.

Anyway, it seems to me that the cleanest way to do Animate Dead 2.0 would just be this:

Journey Back
Enchantment
When Journey Back enters the battlefield, return target creature from a graveyard to the battlefield under your control.
When Journey Back leaves the battlefield, exile the returned creature.

Obviously there are some pretty huge functional differences, and it leads to the possibility to do a version of the O-Ring trick in revese, but it still plays similarly while actually working, and even having room for flavour text.

You may have noticed that Dance of Many effectively accomplished the same thing with tokens.

Monty doesn't even mention all the fun that was involved with the phrase "enchant dead creature". For example, for a while people were transfering Animate Dead to other creatures with 1Crown of the Ages. Four mana to bring back a creature every turn, and only the most recent ever has to worry about the enchantment staying in play. Eventually a judge ruled that it only worked on a "dead creature" ("the new target must be legal") in play (even though the ability is not targeted). Or, in other words, you could only transfer Animate Dead to another creature returned by Animate Dead (since that's the only thing that puts a "dead creature" in play while keeping it a "dead creature").

So could you then use several Animate Deads and transfer all of them to one whipping boy to liberate the other creatures? Well, that depends on the printing... and the judge... and the prevailing notion of how enchantments _should_ work at the time. This is one of the edge cases that tested and defined the rules for years to come, all because it takes the normally conjoined acts of targeting and enchanting on an Aura and breaks them in half.

And if you think the text it ended up with is weird, check out the original text for Takklemaggot, which could have been a lot shorter if "enchant player" had existed at the time.
The problem with animate dead is that the rule "Enchant ~" means twho things:

- One, that you can only target ~
- And two, that it may enchant ~

Usually both are the same thing, but not for animate dead.

There's two possible solutions, change the way you target, or change which permanent the enchantment is allowed to enchant. The current wording uses this latter solution, i think it is cleaner the first one.

------------------------------
Animate Dead   1B

Enchantment - Aura

Enchant Creature
Animate Dead may only target creatures in a graveyard.
If Animate Dead would would enter the battlefield, return targeted creature from the graveyard to the battlefield under your control instead. If you do, animate dead comes into the battlefield enchanting it. If you don't put it in its owners graveyard.
Enchanted creature gets -1/-0
When Animate Dead leaves the battlefield, enchanted creature's controller sacrifices it.
---------------------------------

The only weird thing in this way, is that you talk about the targeted creature, which is unusual in auras; but overall, i think it is a better wording.
it is unreal to see that modern version of the text is not any better than the original one
Even better, and following more closely modern version of the text:

------------------------------
Animate Dead   1B

Enchantment - Aura

Enchant Creature
Animate Dead may only target creatures in a graveyard.
When Animate Dead enters the battlefield, return targeted creature from the graveyard to the battlefield under your control and attach animate dead to it. When Animate Dead leaves the battlefield, enchanted creature's controller sacrifices it.
Enchanted creature gets -1/-0
--------------------------------- 

This version would almost be printable nowadays, and it would stand at only 7 lines of text.
art is sweet, though
