Random Gatherer Card o’ the Week:


Question of the Week: Is the change to the GPs going to affect your event experience or participation?

Whatcha been playin’:
AJ: God at Tribal Wars. Was playing Gods, at the Tribal Wars event. Energy Field does nasty, nasty things to all-in aggro decks with no way to remove problem permanents or indestructible creatures, with or without Rest in Peace.

Paul: More of the same “Counters Matter” in Standard.

Aid from the Cowl by MichelleWong at Wed, 03/15/2017 - 02:04

Thanks for this podcoast. I also find it hard to see all the details in the art on Aid from the Cowl. Beautiful art, but I don't think it completely hits the nail on the head here.

The artist is very talented, but there is something about the drawing which distracts from the central theme of it, which should be about a whole heap of random beasts and monsters coming from the forest to smash consulate constructs. Perhaps the busy-ness of the art was intentional, to capture the chaos of what it's like when random permanents hit the battlefield from the top of the library, however why is it trying to look like a "stampede" card with all the same creature types attacking? This art is more suited to a card which states "All Elephants you control gain +4/+4 and trample". The original art on Overrun, for example, captures the idea of a varied group of creatures attacking, in all different shapes and sizes.

(Also, it was very amusing to hear poor AJ trying to guess the card from clues like "I think there is a helmet bouncing at the bottom of the picture!")

Yeah but that's what clued him in...I should never have mentioned the helmet bouncing...at once he knew what it was. :/ AJ's really sharp with the visual stuff. Thanks for your commentary and for listening :D
