I do.

Let’s turn this question to all of you. Should other planes, where appropriate, have gods?

kre91 said: Hi Mark! Just wanted to say my initial impressions of KTK was AWESOME! I went to prerelease and loved it so much that I went to a second one with my gf! We ended up playing 2-headed giant and did so well, I renewed her interest in Magic! I just wanted to point out how awesome each of the guild mechanics worked together in a fun interactive way! For a heavily enfranchised player like me, and a casual player like my gf, I think KTK strikes the perfect balance between complexity and NWO!

Very happy to hear that.

The only pies I like are pecan and chocolate silk (aka chocolate cream).

creativelopez said: I have something positive to say about the color pie. As someone who plays a lot of commander and loves red, I've seen a push in changing the color's image beyond simply "burn stuff, keep attacking." Now it has more temporary cloning, more interaction with artifacts (especially Kurkesh and Hellkite Tyrant), spell stealing (Mindclaw Shaman), draws more cards and has enjoyed a big increase in its spell-copying effects. It's more diverse, has a better late game and still feels "red." Keep it up.

Will do.

It is. It turned out to be too good in the environment.

Sadly (for me), the former.

Functionally identical versions of Fog have appeared in green, white and black and variations have appeared in blue and red.

Happy Birthday!

biophision said: I attended 4 prereleases and hardly anyone chose Jeskai or Sultai. In 2 of the events 0 players picked Sultai. Do you consider this a development failure?

Picking making choices based on Internet articles about what people think are the best cards in sealed from reading the file is hardly a development gaffe.

Chances are low (let’s say an 8) as the card is a bit overpowered for Standard. Not a developer, yada, yada.
