Your Wish Is My Commander Legends, Part 1Today’s “Making Magic” is my first Commander Legends preview article, complete with preview cards.
<p>I dont understand why you say that something cant work with the rules when you guys change the rules every time you make something new (especially with complicated mechanics like mutate). What makes something like last strike so much more difficult to implement?</p>
Almost anything can change. The issue is it worth the cost? Last strike, for example, requires completely rewriting how combat works.
<p>Does “high percentage if” mean something is more likely or less likely?</p>
<p>Why doesn’t the new Omnath go in WUBRG order? Just noticed for the first time tonight that the card’s pips go RGWU and no one in our playgroup could figure out why since it isn’t the order the colors were added in. </p>
There is an order for every color combination. Four-color mana costs put the mana costs in order around the color wheel starting with the first color after the missing color. No black – RGWU. No white – UBRG. No green – WUBR, etc.
<p>When are we going to get another white creature with haste?</p>
It’s not a white ability. Akroma is not a precedent.
<p>Why does Dockside Extortionist see enchantments?</p>
Red can’t destroy enchantments. It can care about them.
<p>If or when dinosaur and dragon on the same creature. </p>
If, but a high percentage if.
<p>Hello Mark! It’s my birthday! May I request birthday trivia on my favorite planeswalker Sorin Markov? Thank you!</p>
I originally designed Sorin’s ultimate (his first card that controls a player’s turn) for Nicol Bolas. Development decided to change the ultimate to a riff on Bolas’s Legends card and it was cut. We later added it to Sorin.Happy Birthday!
<p>Mark, I wonder if we can get a new Edgar markov in innistrad or is he already dead in history?</p>
I don’t remember hearing about him die, but story is not my area.
<p>Why watermark the wedge cards in Tarkir, but not the shard cards in Alara?</p>
We were just less willing to use watermarks back when we made Shards of Alara. I did try.
