Today’s “Making Magic” is my first Commander Legends preview article, complete with preview cards.
Almost anything can change. The issue is it worth the cost? Last strike, for example, requires completely rewriting how combat works.
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.
It’s not a white ability. Akroma is not a precedent.
Red can’t destroy enchantments. It can care about them.
If, but a high percentage if.
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.
I don’t remember hearing about him die, but story is not my area.
We were just less willing to use watermarks back when we made Shards of Alara. I did try.
