I wasn’t sure what to write about this week, and then at 10:40am Monday morning, Sam Stoddard rolled this gem out.
Announcing! Quite a lot, actually… https://t.co/b5jmlprczz

Six new announcements! That’s a lot of hoopla. Let’s run through them one by one.

Regarding the coming wave of artifact/thopter generators, what do you think of these card’s potential?
Ruins of Oran-Rief (puts +1/+1 counters on colorless creatures, i.e. thopters)
Stoneforge Masterwork (equipped creature gets +1/+1 for each creature you control that shares a type with it; ideal for many thopters)
Stoneforge Masterwork is definitely curious. We saw Runechanter’s Pike, a similar equipment, do quite well back in Innistrad. If there’s a spell of similar power level as Lingering Souls that generates thopters, this could make a great closer.
It’s a damn shame that all the thopter -generating cards from Origins will be rotating out right as this new block comes in.
“…just go look through the two sets worth of cards”
The announcement says this:
“Planechase Anthology showcases cards, both Planar and normal, from Planechase and Planechase (2012 Edition). Planechase Anthology will contain the following:
-Four ready-to-play 60-card decks from Planechase (2012 Edition), each with eight rare cards”
From what I thought, we were getting all the Planar cards, but only the 2012 decks. Hopefully I’m wrong 🙂
Wow, yeah, you’re absolutely right. Only the 2012 decks. Looks like Shardless Agent is safe!
Aether vial would break standard. It does everything they don’t want to do, cheats on mana, on timing and on colors. It won’t be in any standard set
