This thread is for discussion of this week's Serious Fun, which goes live Tuesday morning on magicthegathering.com.
I love cards that match, number-wise.
Another solid article from Adam.
Yeah I was working on a RWG token deck for edh....and now this?!? Hellz Yes!
dang that thing is a superbeast,
lol, just think- i know this is overkill since im using the spoiler from last nights article, but i cant help but mention it,
turn 6: essence of wild
turn 8: army of damned
13 6/6 copies
another 13 6/6 ftw lol
Thank you, Adam Styborski, for writing this article. Now Essence of the Wild will be called the Superbeast, and all decks based around it will be called "Superbeast" decks.
Those were some nice ideas for decks to build with this card! (I especially liked the combo with Mercy Killing !) but I do have 1 comment about the "we'll do it live!"deck:
Hmm... Birthing Pod and Essence of the Wild? I think it's time for some Warstorm Surge !
Nice card. Too bad creatures you control lose their abilities if they were played after this card. It would be great for tokens but I wouldn't want many of my other creatures to lose their abilities.
About the polls, I imagine the "horror trope" poll will have changed a lot with the reveal of double face cards. I would still choose Werewolf, but I would be one of the few.
I would not bring someone I just introduced to the game to a prerelease because they need to learn how to play the game first. Once they can start playing games without my assistance than they can go to events such as prereleases. I would wait a bit more before suggesting that they go to launch parties as the one I go to is a draft.
Anyone else think this card (Like Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas) looks like Rob Zombie.
Maybe it's just because the article is called Superbeast!
Copy effects only copy a card's base attributes (e.g. what's printed on the card, or perhaps more accurately what's written in the Oracle) as modified by other copy effects. So regardless of how many pumps and abilities you'll dump on your Superbeast via auras, instants, sorceries and whatever else you'd like, any subsequent creatures you put on the battlefield will just become 6/6s with the copy ability.
MaRo: "If it isn't horror, it doesn't go in this set".
How on EARTH is this card horror?
This plus Jade Mage or White Sun's Zenith will be fun.
first thought when I saw Essence of the Wild: "They would bring this card out right when eldralzi spawns rotate out god dammit"
there are so many damn possibilities with this card its not even funny
