    Apparently threatening, torturing, and outright stabbing your co-conspirators is not a good plan for long term employee retention. Just once I want to see a villain realize interpersonal skills are the best way to conqueror the multiverse.

  • grimmbrother1
    190 points Apr 16,2019, 10:25pm

    I really love this cycle. The cards are decent when x is less than 10 and ridiculous when they are 10 or over. The blue and red ones will probably see the most play simply because Saheeli the Gifted, Mizzix, and other instant/sorcery cost reduction cards exist in those colors.

  • whatdoiexpect
    32 points Apr 16,2019, 10:30pm

    Does the "return all creature cards from your graveyard to the battlefield" also include any you may decide to destroy with the first clause? In case you were interested in getting some death or etb triggers?

  • NarejED
    49 points Apr 16,2019, 11:18pm

    Pretty sure his greatest weakness is threatening "serve or die" and then showing in the most certain possible terms that he intends to kill them anyway, then being even remotely surprised when they choose not serve.

    Bolas, you smarter than this fam. Get your shit together.

    I haven't read the Spanish spoilers, but going by the other Finale spoiler I can make a 100% accurate guess at how the story goes. Eugene goes to the Meditation Realm and peels Bolas' giant floating face egg. He has Jace tell Liliana that the egg has been peeled for her and she goes and smashes that shit.

    Wait, Bolas ruled through fear? I thought he ruled through an immortal army, having literal God's at his disposal and being a magical fuck off demigod.

  • YARGLE_IS_MY_DAD
    9 points Apr 16,2019, 10:53pm

    At first I thought this might be in a control deck because at x = 2 or 3 this can blow out other decks. But some mid range decks might want a copy or 2 because they get to 12 Mana kinda consistentpy against control, and reflooding the board after they've been denying creatures seems strong, but only if you can get it through a counter spell.

    And then there's all the board wipes in standard... I'm not sure about the card. Edh staple for sure though.

  • RodTheModStewart
    4 points Apr 17,2019, 8:52am

    So...Liliana has to be the most powerful PW remaining in the universe no? Let's take a look at what she managed to accomplish this set {SPOILERS SORT OF}

    • Gained immortality from Gideon to survive the detonation of her demonic contract
    • Harvested the spark of Nicol Bolas, the most powerful PW in the universe
    • Is now essentially free of her contract to Bolas AND her oath to the Gatewatch
    • Her mind-mage on-again-off-again ex BF has a new love interest and will leave her alone

    While the flavor text is good, it doesn't really seem to fit Bolas IMO. Everything we've seem about him makes him feel less like he's trying to intimidate people so much add he's just legitimately a mastermind and incredibly powerful. The people on Amonkhet weren't afraid of him, they had been tricked by a plan decades in the making. Tezzeret works Bolas because Bolas rebuilt his mind after Jace wiped it. It seems kind of like they just ascribed an evil overlord trait to Bolas that doesn't really fit.

    I didn't read all the comment threads of the other Finales but just realized that the Finales all correspond to the Hour cycle in HOU. slowpoke.jpg?

    Which means we're still waiting on Finale of Glory and Finale of Devastation--I can't tell which one is white and which is green though, since there isn't a clear clockwise/counterclockwise pattern, and [[Hour of Glory]] being black means that they won't necessarily all be ally colours.

    2 points Apr 16,2019, 10:54pm

    So ... this means Liliana doesn't die?

    Also: New casual EDH wincon. Okay-ish for standard. Needs 4 mana to destroy creatures with 2 toughness. Ritual of Soot is better there and at 5 mana you're paying a bit much.

    Oh hey, it's literally [[Jaya's Immolating Inferno]] without the legendary restriction and with a bonus rider. Sorry, Jaya, your signature spell manages to be just as unimpressive as your walkers.

    The only way I can see this getting there in constructed is with [[Cabal Stronghold]]. It doesn't act as a proper sweeper against token decks thanks to the target limit, and it's usually worse than [[Ritual of Soot]] (or some multi-colour option) if you're hoping to clear up a board in mono-black. Casting it with X=10 costs an absurd amount of mana, and doesn't win the game unless you've also self-milled a ton of creatures or made a ton of trades, and even then you have to untap with those creatures still in play to alpha strike for lethal.

  • Greyfeld
    1 points Apr 17,2019, 1:43am

    As a limited only player:

    This seems pretty damn strong. For 5 mana you can kill up to 3 creatures with 3 toughness or less, which consists of probably at least half the creatures in the set. 6 mana isn't too far out of reach to kill off bigger threats, and 7 mana in a control shell should kill off just about anything you care about nuking. Worse comes to worse, you can always fire this off for 4 against an aggro deck and essentially wipe their board.

    I'm not sure there's a deck aggressive enough to not want this, so I say windmill slam and bet everything on black.

  • Barl3000
    1 points Apr 17,2019, 2:16am

    I play mtg very casually, so could someone enlighten me on if there is any format or enviroment where it would be possible to reliably get the x = 10 effect, of these cards to fire? The base effect is quite good, but the big effect just seems impossible to use.

  • intplusone_Carl
    1 points Apr 17,2019, 3:06am

    If I target three of my own creatures, can I bring those same three back with this card, or do they not exist in the graveyard in the period of time after the cat bit before the ability to return 3 creatures from my graveyard?

    Modern 1/10
    By the time you can kill enough creatures against say, Humans, you are going to have to spend 5 mana because they now have 3 toughness? But then you are either dead or disrupted out of the game. Like, even if this was a 3 mana, kill two X/1s, you can already do that with any of the 3 mana -2/-2 sweepers.

    Pretty sure his greatest weakness is threatening "serve or die" and then showing in the most certain possible terms that he intends to kill them anyway, then being even remotely surprised when they choose not serve.

    Bolas, you smarter than this fam. Get your shit together.

    I haven't read the Spanish spoilers, but going by the other Finale spoiler I can make a 100% accurate guess at how the story goes. Eugene goes to the Meditation Realm and peels Bolas' giant floating face egg. He has Jace tell Liliana that the egg has been peeled for her and she goes and smashes that shit.

  • YARGLE_IS_MY_DAD
    9 points Apr 16,2019, 10:53pm

    At first I thought this might be in a control deck because at x = 2 or 3 this can blow out other decks. But some mid range decks might want a copy or 2 because they get to 12 Mana kinda consistentpy against control, and reflooding the board after they've been denying creatures seems strong, but only if you can get it through a counter spell.

    And then there's all the board wipes in standard... I'm not sure about the card. Edh staple for sure though.

  • RodTheModStewart

    So...Liliana has to be the most powerful PW remaining in the universe no? Let's take a look at what she managed to accomplish this set {SPOILERS SORT OF}

    • Gained immortality from Gideon to survive the detonation of her demonic contract
    • Harvested the spark of Nicol Bolas, the most powerful PW in the universe
    • Is now essentially free of her contract to Bolas AND her oath to the Gatewatch
    • Her mind-mage on-again-off-again ex BF has a new love interest and will leave her alone

    While the flavor text is good, it doesn't really seem to fit Bolas IMO. Everything we've seem about him makes him feel less like he's trying to intimidate people so much add he's just legitimately a mastermind and incredibly powerful. The people on Amonkhet weren't afraid of him, they had been tricked by a plan decades in the making. Tezzeret works Bolas because Bolas rebuilt his mind after Jace wiped it. It seems kind of like they just ascribed an evil overlord trait to Bolas that doesn't really fit.

    I didn't read all the comment threads of the other Finales but just realized that the Finales all correspond to the Hour cycle in HOU. slowpoke.jpg?

    Which means we're still waiting on Finale of Glory and Finale of Devastation--I can't tell which one is white and which is green though, since there isn't a clear clockwise/counterclockwise pattern, and [[Hour of Glory]] being black means that they won't necessarily all be ally colours.

  • Sephyrias
    2 points Apr 16,2019, 10:54pm

    So ... this means Liliana doesn't die?

    Also: New casual EDH wincon. Okay-ish for standard. Needs 4 mana to destroy creatures with 2 toughness. Ritual of Soot is better there and at 5 mana you're paying a bit much.

    Oh hey, it's literally [[Jaya's Immolating Inferno]] without the legendary restriction and with a bonus rider. Sorry, Jaya, your signature spell manages to be just as unimpressive as your walkers.

    The only way I can see this getting there in constructed is with [[Cabal Stronghold]]. It doesn't act as a proper sweeper against token decks thanks to the target limit, and it's usually worse than [[Ritual of Soot]] (or some multi-colour option) if you're hoping to clear up a board in mono-black. Casting it with X=10 costs an absurd amount of mana, and doesn't win the game unless you've also self-milled a ton of creatures or made a ton of trades, and even then you have to untap with those creatures still in play to alpha strike for lethal.

  • Greyfeld
    1 points Apr 17,2019, 1:43am

    As a limited only player:

    This seems pretty damn strong. For 5 mana you can kill up to 3 creatures with 3 toughness or less, which consists of probably at least half the creatures in the set. 6 mana isn't too far out of reach to kill off bigger threats, and 7 mana in a control shell should kill off just about anything you care about nuking. Worse comes to worse, you can always fire this off for 4 against an aggro deck and essentially wipe their board.

    I'm not sure there's a deck aggressive enough to not want this, so I say windmill slam and bet everything on black.

  • Barl3000
    1 points Apr 17,2019, 2:16am

    I play mtg very casually, so could someone enlighten me on if there is any format or enviroment where it would be possible to reliably get the x = 10 effect, of these cards to fire? The base effect is quite good, but the big effect just seems impossible to use.

  • intplusone_Carl
    1 points Apr 17,2019, 3:06am

    If I target three of my own creatures, can I bring those same three back with this card, or do they not exist in the graveyard in the period of time after the cat bit before the ability to return 3 creatures from my graveyard?

  • barrinmw

    Modern 1/10
    By the time you can kill enough creatures against say, Humans, you are going to have to spend 5 mana because they now have 3 toughness? But then you are either dead or disrupted out of the game. Like, even if this was a 3 mana, kill two X/1s, you can already do that with any of the 3 mana -2/-2 sweepers.

  • Proteus_Dagon

Dovan and Saheeli are just walking plot devices. Vivien's story with the vampires made her seem like every other mono-G PW, but somehow even less interesting.

    It's a nice card, but honestly I've never been too keen on the character of Kaya and to see her brought in as one of the main characters isn't great. I'd much rather she stayed a part of Conspiracy like Daretti.

    Alright, so shes clearly missing an arm and making the oath with her ghost form. Shes got a card called "Kaya's Ghostform" in the set. What I've gathered is that the Magic equivalent of Danny Phantom has joined the Gatewatch.

    1 points Apr 16,2019, 1:37pm

    With this card, the three most-recent Planswalkers to join the Gatewatch are all White-Mana Aligned (Ajani, Teferi, now Kaya), which suggests that the Gatewatch is transitioning from a 5-color organization to a White-Man Aligned organization.

    Also, I wonder if this discredits the leak yesterday since Kaya's oath and the apparent survival of the Gatewatch seem like important details to leave out.

    I understand it only triggers once if your opponent attacks the same PW with multiple creatures, but would it trigger multiple times if you had multiple PWs each being attacked?

  • zyrn
    1 points Apr 16,2019, 2:23pm

    Seems like an excellent anti-aggro tool in control, or in a superfriends deck. Another thing to note is that Superfriends decks often interact poorly with the blink side of [[Oath of Teferi]], whose passive is amazing in the superfriends shell. This Oath synergizes really well with Oath of Teferi, and could help a shell containing both exist.

    If they’re going to keep doing the Gatewatch, at least make it Gatewatch Unlimited, make the roster huge so there are more characters available to base the story around. Saheeli and Huatli and Ral would be good choices, too.

    A worse [[Lightning Helix]] is still a pretty good card, particularly when it's not R. Of special note is that the trigger does not happen when you, yourself, are attacked, and it doesn't trigger multiple times for multiple creatures.

    One corner-case advantage this card has over an instant speed direct damage spell is that you have a permanent left over to sac to something else, like an inconvenient Bolas +1.

    The 4-point life swing when they attack your PWs isn't going to be completely irrelevant, but it's far too weak as a Propaganda effect to be all that useful. The opponent will always have the choice whether or not to do so, and there are plenty of other ways to deal with them besides creatures.

    Overall, this is a good card, and one I think people will play even if you don't have a lot of PW support.

    Super happy to see Kaya get "promoted." Of all the newly-introduced PW in the last 4 years, she and Huatli are the only 2 I find interesting. Arlinn's not my style, as I'm not werewolf person. Dovan and Saheeli are just walking plot devices. Vivien's story with the vampires made her seem like every other mono-G PW, but somehow even less interesting.

    Yay for having characters where you don't immediately know all of their responses to every situation!

    Alright, so shes clearly missing an arm and making the oath with her ghost form. Shes got a card called "Kaya's Ghostform" in the set. What I've gathered is that the Magic equivalent of Danny Phantom has joined the Gatewatch.

    With this card, the three most-recent Planswalkers to join the Gatewatch are all White-Mana Aligned (Ajani, Teferi, now Kaya), which suggests that the Gatewatch is transitioning from a 5-color organization to a White-Man Aligned organization.

    Also, I wonder if this discredits the leak yesterday since Kaya's oath and the apparent survival of the Gatewatch seem like important details to leave out.

    Seems like an excellent anti-aggro tool in control, or in a superfriends deck. Another thing to note is that Superfriends decks often interact poorly with the blink side of [[Oath of Teferi]], whose passive is amazing in the superfriends shell. This Oath synergizes really well with Oath of Teferi, and could help a shell containing both exist.

    A worse [[Lightning Helix]] is still a pretty good card, particularly when it's not R. Of special note is that the trigger does not happen when you, yourself, are attacked, and it doesn't trigger multiple times for multiple creatures.

    One corner-case advantage this card has over an instant speed direct damage spell is that you have a permanent left over to sac to something else, like an inconvenient Bolas +1.

    The 4-point life swing when they attack your PWs isn't going to be completely irrelevant, but it's far too weak as a Propaganda effect to be all that useful. The opponent will always have the choice whether or not to do so, and there are plenty of other ways to deal with them besides creatures.

    Overall, this is a good card, and one I think people will play even if you don't have a lot of PW support.

    Sarkhan’s +1 turns your planeswalkers into dragons just like on his Tarkir version, but those planeswalkers are no longer counted as planeswalkers, right? That means no losing loyalty if damaged and no using their abilities this turn. Neat.

    2 points Apr 15,2019, 12:31pm

    As a limited only player:

    I'm pretty happy just playing a 4/4 flier for 5, so the fail case on this card is very good. The +1 should be good to help shut out games even if Sarkhan is the only PW you have in play, but in longer games it'll mostly just be a way to gain counters to create a second dragon.

    THe static ability is interesting, with the chance to really sort of screw up combat math for your opponent and completely screwing over anything with 1 toughness, but unless we see some good dragons at common, it's probably going to be more of a novelty or aggro hoser than a real troublesome ability for the opponent. Mind, if you can keep him in play for long enough the static ability gets stronger, but if he lives that long you're probably going to win the game pretty shortly anyway.

    • If your dragonwalkers are blocked, does the damage they take roll over onto their loyalty?
    • All the dragonwalkers can now be killed by regular creature kill spells, correct?
    • Does order matter? If I +1 on Sarkhan first in a superfriends deck, will the dragonwalkers still be able to use their loyalty abilities?

    I hope people, especially LGSes, keep leaking early for every set until WOTC learns to stop trying to slow roll spoiler season. There's no reason for spoilers to be 3 weeks or even 2 weeks. I understand you can't help if someone spoils from a tech file leak or someone at a factory (like Dominaria), but if the actual stores have already gotten the product before you spoil it officially you are taking way too long. They could've done the whole story over a week 2 weeks ago and both avoid any leak spoilers and would've had every day's worth of spoilers be a decent amount in both cards and story to be satisfying for a day. Now we get days where we get like 4 commons, some uncommons, and maybe a rare spoiled and no notable story development and they call it a day. You can't artificially extend hype by making things take longer, you just get people that are sick of waiting.

    Sarkhan’s +1 turns your planeswalkers into dragons just like on his Tarkir version, but those planeswalkers are no longer counted as planeswalkers, right? That means no losing loyalty if damaged and no using their abilities this turn. Neat.

  • Greyfeld
    2 points Apr 15,2019, 12:31pm

    As a limited only player:

    I'm pretty happy just playing a 4/4 flier for 5, so the fail case on this card is very good. The +1 should be good to help shut out games even if Sarkhan is the only PW you have in play, but in longer games it'll mostly just be a way to gain counters to create a second dragon.

    THe static ability is interesting, with the chance to really sort of screw up combat math for your opponent and completely screwing over anything with 1 toughness, but unless we see some good dragons at common, it's probably going to be more of a novelty or aggro hoser than a real troublesome ability for the opponent. Mind, if you can keep him in play for long enough the static ability gets stronger, but if he lives that long you're probably going to win the game pretty shortly anyway.

    So, the +1 doesn't have all the extra effects that Gideon gets whenever he turns into a creature. So, I have a few questions.

    • If your dragonwalkers are blocked, does the damage they take roll over onto their loyalty?
    • All the dragonwalkers can now be killed by regular creature kill spells, correct?
    • Does order matter? If I +1 on Sarkhan first in a superfriends deck, will the dragonwalkers still be able to use their loyalty abilities?

  • theecowarrior1
    -2 points Apr 15,2019, 12:21pm

    I hope people, especially LGSes, keep leaking early for every set until WOTC learns to stop trying to slow roll spoiler season. There's no reason for spoilers to be 3 weeks or even 2 weeks. I understand you can't help if someone spoils from a tech file leak or someone at a factory (like Dominaria), but if the actual stores have already gotten the product before you spoil it officially you are taking way too long. They could've done the whole story over a week 2 weeks ago and both avoid any leak spoilers and would've had every day's worth of spoilers be a decent amount in both cards and story to be satisfying for a day. Now we get days where we get like 4 commons, some uncommons, and maybe a rare spoiled and no notable story development and they call it a day. You can't artificially extend hype by making things take longer, you just get people that are sick of waiting.

    Seb Mckinnon delivers once again. Damn!

    Not sure if I'll be flagged, but if you didn't know yet, this artist has a kickstarter for a movie he's making, selling playmats and posters with his art. He's super close to getting a stretch goal that would unlock getting playmats with WotS art on them! So give him a google and you should be able to find it!

    Daamum Seb McKinnon really did a great job in this cards art, so different from the other hyper realistic art of this set. It depicts the event of the Gatewatch being delivered to Bolas really well. And for whatever reason I like this one more than [[Growth Spiral]]

  • eyamxi
    1 points Apr 15,2019, 7:03pm

    Am I the only one who thinks it's very badly worded? There are two choices made here by both the player and the opponent. First choice by you doesn't matter if you have a Bolas planeswalker. Because of the wording of the second choice "Leave the chosen cards in your graveyard and put the rest in your hand."

    Now, let's say I don't have a Bolas planeswalker. My graveyard is, let's say, 4x Swamp and 20x Shadowborn Apostle. I cast Deliver Unto Evil and chose the four swamps. My opponent chooses two of the swamps. Now the chosen cards are the four swamps, they go to my graveyard and nothing happens.

    Wait, that's not right, the card does nothing? I guess it means everything but the four cards goes into my hands. So I put in my hand 20x Shadowborn Apostle because they were in my graveyard and weren't chosen.

    Here's how I would have worded it: "Chose up to four target cards in your graveyard. An opponent chooses up to two cards from among them. If you have a Bolas planeswalker, then put all chosen cards in your hand. Otherwise put the cards chosen by you and not your opponent in your hand. Exile Deliver Unto Evil."

    Modern 1/10
    Putting 4 cards in your graveyard isn't that hard but it takes a nonzero amount of work, but giving your opponent the choice of the ones you get? This is no Gifts Ungiven because at least you can abuse graveyard shenanigans with that. Holding this until you potentially get a bolas into play? Too slow.

  • Klumsi
    0 points Apr 15,2019, 11:32am

    I don´t think this is good enough without Bolas, mostly because it´s a sorcery, and unecessary in the situation that you get to untap with Bolas, in which case you would most likely win anyways

  • Greyfeld
    0 points Apr 15,2019, 11:57am

    As a limited only player:

    So let's get the obvious part out of the way - you're not going to play this and have Bolas in your graveyard. Congrats if you're the one person over the entire format who manages it, but until that actually happens, let's just assume that part of the card is flavor text.

    So basically we're looking at "Pay 3, get 2 cards from your graveyard back to your hand," which is a step above the usual, "Get 2 creatures back to your hand," that's always playable. Unfortunately, it requires that you have 4 cards in your graveyard to work, because your opponent gets to choose 2 cards to pitch. So if you want back anything relevant, you'll need 4 good cards in your graveyard. And if you want your opponent to actually care about anything you're returning, you need 4 relevant cards from your graveyard. I can see this playing well in two types of decks: RB sacrifice, and black-based control. The former will have a bunch of fodder it'll want to sac all over again for more effects, while the latter will have a lot of value and removal spells they'll want to replay to get further ahead on the board.

    There are also a couple targeted mill effects that you could use to populate your graveyard before playing this, so that's one option to keep in mind if you have this card in hand.

    Overall I'd say that the setup cost on this is very high to make it worth running. But if you can fill your graveyard quickly or are playing a control deck with a lot of value-generating spells, this might appeal to you as a way to restock your hand.

    I enjoy Seb McKinnon’s art but this piece is not great, his style works a lot better on more abstract things. Portraying these characters who all have established looks in this way just comes out weird, maybe just me.

Not quite as abusable since half the fun of the other two since part of the gimmick there is to force cards into your bin, and this does whiff if you somehow have two or fewer cards in your graveyard.. Regrowing the worst two cards out of four in limited is kinda meh, but I feel like there has to be a constructed deck that can use this, since 2-4 cards of gas for 3 mana is just a great rate.

But still I think his art, although really good, is too similar to one another.
