Finally a good card this is expected but still a welcome addition to UR Delver decks.

Thanks.  Can't change the title, did the rest, and found the awesome pic.

Now this gonna be good.  Red/blue is looking like a serious color pair in this Standard.

I like how this is better than it usually would be since you have a chance to consistently trigger Miracle on the opponent's turn.

I feel like this is an odd ICD to mention this in, considering it's a land.  That said, it doesn't have to beat you over the head with the flavor to fit.  I think the image, especially with the flavor text, works wonderfully as a metaphor for Avacyn.

That said, off the top of my head what cards have set relevant flavor?

Bonfire of the Damned - The trick here is that Avacyn isn't the real hero of the block, Thalia is.  This card came a set to late, but it's definitely in reference to her single-handed defense of Thraben.

Zealous Conscript - New recruits are excited after Avacyn is back? woah.

All the demons/devils - yeah

Angels - uh huh

Miracle cards are other obvious ones.  The individual mechanics are just as important for conveying flavor as the image and the flavor text are.  

Yeah a lot of cards would fit elsewhere, but it's a magical fantasy setting.  I still think most of them work with the themes of this set.  They're still cranking out horror tropes they didn't really touch on before either, did you check out the monster of Cloverfield?

Btw, as an aside...Islands, digging the new avatar.

great late game card !

Islands, digging the new avatar.



Thanks!  Just tweaked it.

Yeah that's even better.

I hope we don't have to wait until the 18th to read about his story.

 
This will deff help out miracles in limited. There will be a few good per-release stories here.
Called this exactly which pleases me. I'm hoping the WR land is just "WR, : Creatures you control gain haste and first strike until end of turn." but that's probably slightly too powerful.

Looking forward to playing with this card.
Favorite card spoiled so far.
very nice - exactly what is needed if any kind of miracle-based deck is going to be made in those colors. allows that temporal mastery/thunderous wrath/bonfire? from the opening hand to be discarded - in many cases, i don't think faithless looting would be the right card for the deck.  awesome.
I like this a lot.  I can really see this being fun in casual with Burning Vengence and it may even have a competitve side to it (although I can't immediately see where yet).

Oh? I assumed this was Jenrik's tower that Tamiyo, the Moon Sage had been hanging out in. Looking at Tower Geist, though, I'm not sure.

Speaking of Jenrik....I wonder if he'll do anything or be a card at all? And will he have his own tower now that the moon-mistress has left him for angels and demons?

On a more related note, this is a pretty solid land card, for not producing colored mana. I can see myself using it in more than a few decks.
If I'm right, I'm right. If I'm wrong, I still believe I'm right. Think of it as religion. dubito ergo sum.
Yeah, definitely not Jenrik's tower. Darn it. They made a tower where strange researches are conducted, and didn't make it the tower they already had in fluff where strange researches are conducted? >.<

At first glance I assumed this card ended with 'at random'.

Then I actually reread the card and became extremely happy.  I'm loving all these utility lands, and any land with 'draw a card' on it has serious potential.
it looks like a good card especially for u/r delver. and for miracles.
so as an opponent of said delver deck...BOOOO :P

This must be the lighthouse that Toyota was hanging out in.

EDIT: A knickname for Tamiyo that's been floating around.  "Normally a solid powerhouse that keeps on going, but might be subject to a product recall for being broken."
No complaints here. Cost is dead on. Does what decks in those colors want to be doing. A little predictable if anything, but whatever.
Very good utililand. Happy with this. Will likely be adding to my Riku EDH. Not really a lot to say.

There was a guy that came by during the DKA spoilers and said he had a dream of a card called Lighthouse in either DKA or AVR; now this is a land and not an artifact, but it is a Lighthouse so I'm tagging this thread in case he comes back so he knows his dreams can't tell the difference between an artifact and a land.

Seems pretty good, I forgot they hadn't finished this cycle.
True post count: 9,900 Thanks Wotc for not counting archived posts. If I post without capital letters than means I'm posting from my phone. For some reason it hates typing capital letters. Go_Texans on MTGO. Texans 12-4 Wildcard: W Texans 19 Bengals 13 Divisional: L Texans 28 Patriots 41 Another awesome season!
Would it have been to good if it just took a U/R to activate?

Still, it is a good card.
Wow. An elegant and flavourfully resonant UR ability, that's also very relevant to the game, and cheap enough to be useful at any point? I'm impressed. I assumed it would be some sort of mad scientist's lab, doing something "fudgy" flavour-wise, like Stensia Bloodhall.
Wow... I'm impressed!  I think that this one's my favorite of its super-cycle, and I love me some Grim Backwoods and Gavony Township.  It's simple, powerful and incredibly useful.  All in all, it's been one immensely well-done cycle.

Nice, I want 2-4 now.

Not surpising but I think everyone can get behind this. Another card I like in U/R Delver.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!
I'm feeling Grixis control making a comeback in this set. Killing Wave, Griselbrand, This.....Seems fun
BEAUTIFUL ART!

And there sure has been a lot of draw then discard abilities in red during this block...
