Episode 292 – Izzet Theros Time Already?

Izzet Old vs. New

Hey look, there’s a small handful of Theros previews out already!  And then an Izzet Old vs. New.  Izzet Old vs. New? Yes, yes it is!  Look, these are the jokes, get used to them.  But we didn’t do it that many times.  I don’t think.  Anyway, we did those two things.  We also took a look at Mark Rosewater’s State of Design column and the Theros teasers contained within.  That was pretty much it.  It was a lot of fun though, so I hope everyone enjoys it!

    The Betow/Aura trigger WILL FAIL if the target is illegal.

      Marshall got it wrong in the first draft of his article. Notice the offending paragraph has now been edited to say the opposite.

      Good eye, though. Because Marshall’s column is so popular, he unfortunately got a lot of people confused on this point.

    Just to remind you: I love your previews and the show in general! After a hard day of work there’s nothing better than grabbing a gin&tonic, turning off the lights and giggling like a lunatic in an armachair half a world away from you. Cheers!

    Traproot Kami with a Rancor on it and nine Forests in play, 2/9 for two. Given the weird ass decks I play, I wouldn’t be surprised if I’ve actually had that on board at one time or another.

      I have had a Traproot Kami with a Rancor on it before. I love “wall” decks using Wakestone Gargoyle.

    On the two Niv-Mizzets:

    The way I see it, Dracogenius is the fixed version of Firemind: it’s a very similar effect that doesn’t create a two-card instant win combo. Like Mike said, Dracogenius utilizes all parts of the card and incentivizes you to attack with your dragon, while Firemind is mostly just used for its damage ability.

    Firemind is the more powerful card, Dracogenius is the better design.
