This thread is for discussion of this week's The Week That Was, which goes live Friday morning on magicthegathering.com.
I'm getting even more excited about Innistrad now. It might just turn out to be all that I wanted Shadowmoor to be, but what it never was.
Basic Island in the rare spot of the Beta pack?!? Epic Fail.
Innistrad looks absoluetly awesome. I think Zendikar and Scars of Mirrodin are actually some of the best blocks ever from a flavour POV, but I have a feeling Innistrad will top them.
Incidentally, I'm not a massive Jonathan Coulton fan, but I think he's pretty cool, and I love the Creepy Doll art. I wonder if there are any other cards named after songs.
Also, this just really makes me wish I was there. Going to ComicCon is one of those things that I absolutely have to do at least once in my life.
Zombies for blue being Frankenstein monsters piqued my interest.
It's a safe bet that there will be some green werewolves, and probably some red vampires.
I have no clue what white is going to get, though...that'll be a real trip.
Even so, I hope that I can make a nice Castlevania theme deck.
I have a very strong suspicion that it was a playtest name that Creative liked enough to keep.
wow... that's a lackluster song. I really hope this card's name has nothing to do with it. On another note, does this mean no Stuffy Doll reprint? Sadness.
It also highly probable that some zombies will be white. As controllable soldiers, they can easily fit in the order that white seeks. I'm pretty sure part of white's identity in this set will likely be linked to black in an Orzhov fashion. An other part of white's idendity will likely need to be humans fighting the darkness, so it will probably be the least "horrific" color, but there's room for variety.
The ghost idea is spot-on. MaRo's been spoiling the Innistrad tribes a little bit more on Twitter. "To recap: WU: Ghosts, UB: Zombies, BR: Vampires, RG: Werewolves, GW: ???"
As a guy who works hard to get better at Magic with the hope of making it to the Pro Tour, I'm not sure how I feel about that World Championship qualification being handed out at random. Seems like any blue envelope given away for "interesting questions" is one less for the thousands of us grinding away. Maybe it's just sour grapes, but the Pro Tour is supposed to be for the best Magic players - not the best question-asker.
Ok you asked at ComicCon, to post if we are interested in another Un-Set, Well I definatly think there are alot of strongs cards that have been printed and used since Un-hinged set that need spoofing ! please make another Un-Set !
