Hey Magic Arena, how am I supposed to cast this spell when my targets block my lands?

    The little circle with an arrow pointing towards the right (on top of the "Find" card you're playing at the right of the screen) is meant to hide all extraneous UI elements temporarily. I believe if you click on it, you'll be able to then click on your land.

    Otherwise, tapping for mana first works just fine in this scenario.

    Two ways:

    1. Turn autotap on. Can still manually tap if you want. This leads to point two

    2. Tap your mana before casting the spell.

    Tap your mana first

    It's worse when you need to target a creature and the spell is completely covering your target

    See the little > arrow above the card on the stack? That’s a button that reveals the entire battlefield so you can interact with it.

    Also, use the autotapper. You’re not smarter or better for manually tapping, you’re just annoying your opponents.

    Of course, there are other problems with Lands with activated abilities; Such as [[Atzal]] or [[Memorial to Folly]].

    Where if a Creature card in your Graveyard is targeted ([[Deadeye Tracker]], [[Deathgorge Scavenger]], etc.) and those cards overlaps with the Lands, you wouldn't be able to select those Lands to activate their abilities in response.

    This is a problem for other targeting things too. Was playing sealed yesterday and trying to use [[Blessed Light]] to exile a creature that was also enchanted, but the pop up info completely obscured both cards. (I know the current pop up info will be for whatever I'm currently targeting but it's still a problem with multiples of the same card or token)

  • Vault756

    I had a similar but different issue recently where I couldn't tell which creature a particular Dauntless Bodyguard was protecting because the cards popping up blocked the arrows. With multiple bodyguards in play all targeting different things I ended up just guessing and getting it wrong. Extremely frustrating.

    I also play with auto tap off. I prefer it that way. A bit slower (sorry, opponents), but I've been screwed in 3+ color decks far too often with bad guesses by the AI when I needed specific lands tapped (sure, I could tap first, but that still leaves a margin for error with excitement).

    I play a lot of rainbow lich (sorry, opponents), so my land targeting also happens a lot and I have lists of "end of turn" and static reminders on the left side, a lot. When I'm getting to the end of my mana consumption for the turn and can't reach my lands due to the reminders hovering over, I'll turn auto tap on for a spell or two, then turn it right back off.

    Karn's Final Smash restarts the match, except he has one extra stock/point (depending on mode) for each KO he had before the reset.

    Saheeli's specials involve making robot animals, but the side-B makes cats and people think it'll get removed in the next patch.

    Side special is [[chandra's pyrohelix]] a long range projectile that pierces the first target it hits

    Down B is [[Circle of Flame]] Which surrounds chandra for a bit after casting

    her up B is [[Shiv's embrace]] cause its the only red spell i can think that gives flying

    Spectacle is obviously an alternate casting cost that requires tapping a Lens, Goggles, or Glasses card you control.

  • TemurTron
    308 points Dec 11,2018, 8:26pm

    Translation from the last thread:

    “Illuminate the Scene"? "Light the Stage"?

    Sorcery

    Spectacle R

    Exile the top two cards of your library. Until the end of your next turn, you can play these cards.

  • CzarnianShuckle
    440 points Dec 11,2018, 9:06pm

    I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess that Spectacle (or whatever the new mechanic is named) is something along the lines of "If this is the only card in your hand, you may cast this card for it's "Spectacle" cost rather than it's mana cost".

  • SolarJoker
    136 points Dec 11,2018, 8:28pm

    I wonder what Spectacle does. Well, we now know it's going to be Rakdos's new mechanic.

    Who is Judith?

  • karawapo
    47 points Dec 11,2018, 10:39pm

    To people thinking about the keyword's meaning and tying into speculations on what it does, "espectáculos" aren't glasses in Spanish. An "espectáculo" is a show, which matches the Rakdos flavour a lot better.

    Sacrificing permanents, damaging any target, people dying, discarding thoughts, all those sound like a Rakdos show to me :)

  • SmugglersCopter

  • youmywang_g
    23 points Dec 11,2018, 9:00pm

    Spectacle? Makes me think about an alternative casting cost involving sacrificing a creature. Something like "Spectacle X (you may cast this card by paying its spectacle cost and sacrificing a creature you control)"

  • infernox10
    25 points Dec 11,2018, 10:44pm

    I’m thinking that Spectacle might be the “fixed” version of the RTR mechanic they wanted to use. I remember reading an article where they wanted [[Rakdos, Lord of Riots]]’s ability to be the Rakdos mechanic (the more life loss your opponent had, the cheaper the spell is). The article said it was scrapped pretty quickly due to the power level being insanely hard to balance. So maybe this is the mechanic? If the opponent lost life this turn, you may cast a spell for its Spectacle cost? Maybe it’ll be tied directly to combat damage like Bloodthirst? Can’t wait to find out.

  • valios44
    12 points Dec 12,2018, 7:37am

    I don't know if anyone mentioned it before, but as a native spanish speaker, I'd say that Espectáculo comes from something among the lines of Showtime, rather than Spectacle. Honestly, I'd love for the Rakdos mechanic to be just called Showtime.

  • Kazzack
    14 points Dec 12,2018, 7:43am

    Everyone saying spectacle is "when your hand is empty" or "when your opponent has lost life" but the name doesn't sound like any of those. In the rakdos theme sure but they like making more general mechanic names so they can use them again. If spectacle means what people are thinking then they could really only use the mechanic on a rakdos-flavored set, in the context of a brutal gory show. I'm thinking it's something like if you cast it for its spectacle cost then you can't play anything else this turn. Especially if this says "until the end of your next turn" not "this turn" like most similar effects.

  • jreluctance
    7 points Dec 11,2018, 10:43pm

    Depending on the condition for spectacle, this could be really powerful.

    One red to draw 2?

    Delver might be back on the menu.

  • ecocd
    22 points Dec 11,2018, 10:30pm

    WotC has been good about getting out ahead of leaks lately. I wouldn't be surprised if we have the official card by the end of the week.

    The weird thing is the lack of reminder text. They've been putting reminder text on everything. It's weird to have it missing on an uncommon. Could it be a fake, albeit a convincing one?

  • swamp_rat6
    14 points Dec 11,2018, 9:26pm

    The spectacle cost probably is casting it if it's the last card in your hand, or discarding a card in addition to casting it for its spectacle cost?

  • aut-vara
    5 points Dec 12,2018, 3:25am

    Depending on the mechanic, this could be amazing with [[Experimental Frenzy]], since you can cast the exiled spells and manipulate the top of your library...

    Like it a lot.

  • Flufzor
    4 points Dec 12,2018, 5:36am

    Might it be something along the lines of cost reduction when there is a big enough audience? (eg. if there are 4 or more creatures on the battlefield?) Doesn't sound very rakdos esque but still...

    Spectacle must be the new Rakdos mechanic, of course, but without any reminder text, we're kind of stuck guessing at what it does. Probably an alternate cost if you meet some criteria.

    Judith, IIRC, is the real name of Massacre Girl, Ravnica's most wanted criminal. So maybe she's finally getting a card.

  • warcaptain

    I can see this either being A) Spectacle cost can be paid as an instant, but only on your opponent's turn. This would explain 'end of your next turn' and make sense with "Set the Stage" because you are setting things up for your next turn or B) A new 'Miracle' type ability, where you can play this card for its Spectacle cost as you draw it vs from your hand. This would fit into what they did with Scry->Surveil with taking an existing mechanic and making it more thematic.

    Is it possible spectacle is something like “you can cast for the specatcle cost only if you’ve cast a spell with specatcle last turn.” The idea being that if you chain spectacles together you are building the show they are performing?

  • Rennyreddy
    1 points Dec 12,2018, 5:07pm

    I guess it's: "You may pay this spell for its spectacle/showtime cost. If you do, as

    you cast this spell, your opponents may copy it by paying its Spectacle cost. "

    Would explain the -until your next end turn- part and maybe fit with the keyword since every player gets a role to play in the show.

  • khadzad

    So it's Rakdos guild mechanic and they decided to go with the whole "circus" theme for them. It's nice mechanic when translated but hell, Cult of Rakdos is now Circus of Rakdos... The whole new ravnica blok feels now like generic fantasy and not like previous ravnica sets, which they had more flavour than this "planeswalkers of ravnica".

    Spectacle could be something like “You may pay the alternative cost if at least three cards were placed in the graveyard this turn.” This flavors the spectacle as a lot of death, but would also work well casting multiple spells in a turn. Izzet, Dimir, Golgari and even Boros (kinda) would all be interested in the effect.

    To people thinking about the keyword's meaning and tying into speculations on what it does, "espectáculos" aren't glasses in Spanish. An "espectáculo" is a show, which matches the Rakdos flavour a lot better.

    Sacrificing permanents, damaging any target, people dying, discarding thoughts, all those sound like a Rakdos show to me :)

  • infernox10
    25 points Dec 11,2018, 10:44pm

    I’m thinking that Spectacle might be the “fixed” version of the RTR mechanic they wanted to use. I remember reading an article where they wanted [[Rakdos, Lord of Riots]]’s ability to be the Rakdos mechanic (the more life loss your opponent had, the cheaper the spell is). The article said it was scrapped pretty quickly due to the power level being insanely hard to balance. So maybe this is the mechanic? If the opponent lost life this turn, you may cast a spell for its Spectacle cost? Maybe it’ll be tied directly to combat damage like Bloodthirst? Can’t wait to find out.

  • valios44
    12 points Dec 12,2018, 7:37am

    I don't know if anyone mentioned it before, but as a native spanish speaker, I'd say that Espectáculo comes from something among the lines of Showtime, rather than Spectacle. Honestly, I'd love for the Rakdos mechanic to be just called Showtime.

  • Kazzack
    14 points Dec 12,2018, 7:43am

    Everyone saying spectacle is "when your hand is empty" or "when your opponent has lost life" but the name doesn't sound like any of those. In the rakdos theme sure but they like making more general mechanic names so they can use them again. If spectacle means what people are thinking then they could really only use the mechanic on a rakdos-flavored set, in the context of a brutal gory show. I'm thinking it's something like if you cast it for its spectacle cost then you can't play anything else this turn. Especially if this says "until the end of your next turn" not "this turn" like most similar effects.

  • swamp_rat6

This would fit into what they did with Scry->Surveil with taking an existing mechanic and making it more thematic.

  • Grenrut

    Thoughts on:

    Spectacle (you may cast this spell for by sacrificing a creature in addition to paying its other costs)

    ?

  • ekprozak
    1 points Dec 12,2018, 4:20pm

    Is it possible spectacle is something like “you can cast for the specatcle cost only if you’ve cast a spell with specatcle last turn.” The idea being that if you chain spectacles together you are building the show they are performing?

  • Rennyreddy
    1 points Dec 12,2018, 5:07pm

    I guess it's: "You may pay this spell for its spectacle/showtime cost. If you do, as

    you cast this spell, your opponents may copy it by paying its Spectacle cost. "

    Would explain the -until your next end turn- part and maybe fit with the keyword since every player gets a role to play in the show.

  • khadzad
    1 points Dec 12,2018, 7:13am

    I would go with "If your creature fought in combat phase and survived, you may pay this card for its spectacle cost".

    Greatest spectacle is when Gladiator is alive and can still fight :D

    Or maybe "If your creature fought in combat and killed enemy creature you may..."?

  • Dellema

    Spectacle guess:

    "If you sacrificed a creature this turn, you may cast this for it's spectacle cost"

    Exile the top two cards of your library. Until the end of your next turn, you may play those cards.

  • DotOrgan
    -2 points Dec 12,2018, 5:05am

    I think you as a player are the spectacle - maybe "Spectacle - You may cast this card for R if you have 5 or less life."

  • SSSwapTap
    -5 points Dec 12,2018, 4:43am

    So it's Rakdos guild mechanic and they decided to go with the whole "circus" theme for them. It's nice mechanic when translated but hell, Cult of Rakdos is now Circus of Rakdos... The whole new ravnica blok feels now like generic fantasy and not like previous ravnica sets, which they had more flavour than this "planeswalkers of ravnica".

    Hmm 107, I'll have to double check name and number but dark confidant, noble heirarch, sheoldred, and one with nothing can still be in the set. Very exciting

  • Gildebeast
    -3 points Dec 12,2018, 1:19am

    Spectacle could be something like “You may pay the alternative cost if at least three cards were placed in the graveyard this turn.” This flavors the spectacle as a lot of death, but would also work well casting multiple spells in a turn. Izzet, Dimir, Golgari and even Boros (kinda) would all be interested in the effect.

  • TBSdota
    -4 points Dec 12,2018, 8:56am

    Spectacle {R} (You may cast Light the Stage from exile by paying it's spectacle cost. If you do, put it into it's owner's graveyard as it resolves.)
