Talrand, Sky Summoner
Legendary Creature - Merfolk Wizard

Whenever you cast and instant or sorcery spell, put a 2/2 blue Drake creature token with flying onto the battlefield.

Holy powercard batman!

Brainstorm FTW.

Miracle seems incredibly powerful. Everyone is talking about the timewarp. But how about the 5 damage for R?

That seems powerful, very powerful.

Maybe this: now if you draw bomb or insane curve with no lands, you have to either gamble on drawing two lands on 4-5 cards or mull to six and accept weaker but more stable draw spoiling from there. With proposed change, there is no punishment if you deside to take the gambit, so you should always take it. You are not supposed to both eat a cake and keep it.


Manipulation of the starting hand, should be as little as possible.

Stoneforge is one of the few good 2cc drops this format has.

Seriously? One of the few?

Plenty of good 2 CMC drops.

Niece piece of hate, but otherwise dead card =/

what the hell? seriosuly?

F1 should ban WOTC from using that term, too...

Stupidity, when will it end?!  Huh

season next year will have wider card pool -> all watchlist cards playable / results will influence (at least my) decisions concerning banned list changes april 2012

WOW! This is a major change!

@ Mythrandir - I certainly agree with you on the power of Gifts Ungiven - no doubt there. But top is also extremely powerful and I feel it has more power late game then you're giving it credit for.  In my experiences, it's also just been SO much easier to beat an opponent without early top than it is to beat someone with early top.

I agree with you: TOP is an incredible card, but if you're screw/losing, top won't save your life, or at least won't save it very differently from, let's say a brainstorm... Gifts has the potential to win you the game on the spot, or at least save your neck for a couple more turns...
Anyways, not bashing TOP, love it, and hope it stays unbanned! Smiley

Too bad they won't let us target Gifts Ungiven for it anymore

Sure you can. For a few days until October 15th. at least.

I goldfished Snapcaster in my High Tide-pile for a while and even there the mage was nuts. It almost universally seems as if Gifts out --> Snapcaster in to replace.

Yeap, i thought exactly the same! No really need to think about that one... just replace your gifts with the mage!

If anything, I would have predicted a Top ban before a Gifts ban. Gifts is a one time thing that doesn't *always* win the game.  However, Top gives the player with Top such a huge advantage over the player without Top.  And the player without Top has to sit there every turn wishing he had a Top, too. 

I disagree. Gifts turns the tables a lot more and can finish the game a lot more, than a top. Tops is very good early on, but it won't save you from getting killed later on. Gifts has the potential to turn a lost match to a winning one. (although I'dprefer if the two weren unbanned as it were.. Smiley, but that's in th past...)
12  MagicPlayer Highlander / Deck Lists / pulse decklists on: 02-10-2011, 01:44:29 PM
For purely selfish reasons (and consistency), is it possible to "ask" people who add decks lists in the pulse,  with their deck name in english (for example: Das beste Bant der Welt) i google translate it into Best bant in the world... Tongue

This would help the non-german community. Thanks

This is a bad argument. It's not okay to unban Sol Ring just because it's not going to ruin every game.

It is a valid argument, consider mental misteep (or any other of the recent bannins of the DCI B&R list, do you think it's ban worthy in 1 in a 100? Of course sol ring is also 1 in a 100, but that card is probably one of the most powerful cards ever. Of course ancestral recall is also 1 in a 100... Please don't compare things that aren't comparable. There will always be cards banned in 4x in 60 formats that in our format don't feel necessary to being ban!

And what Nastaboi said: "but hey, you have to be able to make decisions even when not being able to please everybody."

I've always supported the councils decison, I may not agree with all of them, but we do have to have a ban list, so...

Both daybreaker and pike seem less optimal in Highlander. Especially the daybreaker, which IMO we have lots of better creatures.
The pike is very interesting but compared to the swords seems a bit weak, creature has no evasion, has no protection vs removal. Not saying it won't see play, but if i had to choose between a sword and a pike, i'd definitely go with a sword.

Can pike be a combo part?
Oath + stoneforg mystic + pike? something like that... it's very frail... but who knows.

@tonytahiti, everyone can do a set review! Smiley and you still can, if you wish too.
15  MagicPlayer Highlander / Banned List & Rules / Re: HL bannings october 2011 on: 01-10-2011, 01:22:04 PM
@tiggupiru, the problem is the definition of unfun, it's a very subjective thing, and we can't just start banning things just because we think it's unfun. Especially if you take in account this a 1 in a 100 format instead of 4 in 60, where you will always see card A, B, C in a tournament/match, unlike in our format.

Also i highly doubt that imperial seal will prove to be too powerful, and yes I agree with you, bannign portal III would be nice to avoid these redudant and overly pricey cards.

Taking both pod and SOFT seems a bit harsh, IMO. Let one live, at least...

In regards of LFTL, i think that the meta could benefit from a bit more graveyard interaction, because right now, i believe there isn't much going on in that area... Although you still can go intuition -> LFTL + wasteland + cycle land.
