Multiple Soulbond triggers may occur, but once two are paired, it does no good to try and pair the third wheel out to one of the paired creatures: neither of them are unpaired as the text for Soulbond requires.But even if you don't understand that, they went ahead and also released another rule that simply states a pair is two creatures.
6) Black is everything 1-5 is not.It's good the set is designed around its mechanics, but this one shoves it too far down my throat and just wears me out of the same thing all the time.
Maybe it's just me, but it actually feels like green is a lot weaker for soulbond overall (well excluding black anyways).
I see, so they happen on the stack then. What about the second question though, what if my soulbonded creature turns into another soulbonded creature or something like that?
702.93e A paired creature becomes unpaired if any of the following occur: another player gains control of it or the creature it's paired with; it or the creature it's paired with stops being a creature; or it or the creature it's paired with leaves the battlefield.So yes they would be 12/12 Wolfirs =) They would even remain paired if both lost all abilities (but they wouldn't give out bonusses)
Dear Wotc, Please find a new name for New World Order. I'm not arguing whenever or not it's a good policy for magic to have, but the name is extremely ironic. New World Order, when heard by those outside magic design, brings to mind evil power elites plotting to take over the world via a cunning masterstroke after centuries of plotting. I don't think it is good PR to associate your design plans with the Sith from Star Wars or with western perception of Communism. Also, the phrase just sounds super sinster.
I did find soulbond harder to track than I thought it would be. A shame that a token crappy in-pack advert slot wasn't given to a "sideways orientated bond card" which you could lay over / under a pair of cards to show that they are bound. I would find that much more useful than the needlessly pointless poison counter token from last year.
I'm so disappointed that this is their "fixed" banding. I suspected it was going to be, due to the thematic similarity, but mechanically it's nothing like banding, and I'm really looking want a fixed banding. I fear that they're going to call this a short term victory for new banding and back burner it for a long time again.
..."window.parent.tinyMCE.get('post_content').onLoad.dispatch();" contenteditable="true" />It may well be worth R&D trying to find a different phrase for the sake of people who do take it the way you do, but please recognise that you're not speaking for "everyone outside Magic design" but just a small number of people who have the associations you do.
Do you really suspect that was unintentional? It's been evidenced many times that MaRo is a fan of ironic humour, even specifically as it pertains to Magic design - he regularly refers to "destroying Magic" as one of his career goals. I suspect he's fully aware of its sinister implications, and simply considers that a humourous bonus on an otherwise accurate term.Irony is generally only a bad thing if the person being ironic doesn't realise it. When irony is evoked intentionally, we generally regard that as a sign of wit...
I, for one, welcome our new Sith Overlords.
I much prefer it to miracle, which I hope never to see again. I wouldn't mind if well designed soulbond cards made an appearance in a future set though.
