This thread is for discussion of this week's ReConstructed, which goes live Tuesday morning on magicthegathering.com. 

"Words of power never disappear. They sleep, awaiting those with the will to rouse them."

So when I try to get to this thread via the link at the bottom of the article I get an access denied error. New forums just aren't good....

Myths of Theros: Part 1, Part 2, Born of the Gods Myths

Beta Client, "Shiny", V4.0 tutorial

Momir Basic Primer

same here, new forum is buggy

Buggy forum aside, that whip is sooooo combolicious.  Anything in the same vein as Obzedat, Ghost Council can abuse the ability to return from death and exile repeatedly:

Aetherling, Argent Sphinx with metalcraft, Flickering Spirit, Ghost Council of Orzhova, Hikari, Twilight Guardian, Misthollow Griffin, Sengir Nosferatu,

Any creature returned via whip followed by any "champion" creature of the appropriate type or a creature with a flicker ability (either activated such as Deadeye Navigator/Nephalia Smuggler/Mistmeadow Witch/Planar Guide or triggered such as Flickerwisp/Restoration Angel)

Ruin Ghost with Dryad Arbor.

From Mark Rosewater's Tumblr: the0uroboros asked: How in the same set can we have a hexproof, unsacrificable(not a word) creature AND a land that makes it uncounterable. How does this lead to interactive play? I believe I’m able to play my creature and you have to deal with it is much more interactive than you counter my creature.

MaRo: One of the classic R&D stories happened during a Scars of Mirrodin draft. Erik Lauer was sitting to my right (meaning that he passed to me in the first and third packs). At the end of the draft, Erik was upset because I was in his colors (black-green). He said, "Didn't you see the signals? I went into black-green in pack one." I replied, "Didn't you see my signals? I started drafting infect six drafts ago."
