mccager asked:

Maro, could you post pronunciatkons for each of the clan names? I feel like it would clear a lot up.

markrosewater answered:

Abzan - OB (rhymes with “Bob”) - zon (rhymes with “on”)
Jeskai - JESS - kai (as in Kai Budde)
Sultai - SUL (rhymes with “gull”) - tie
Mardu - MAR (rhymes with “car”) - do
Temur - TEE - mer (rhymes with “her”) - the whole clan rhymes with “lemur” and “femur”

Arbitrary Card of the Day 9-19-14: Zur’s Weirding

sarpadianempiresvol-viii:

Today’s Arbitrary Card of the Day is Zur’s Weirding. Zur was a wizard known as Zur the Enchanter, but also known as Zur the Mad. He was once a mage of Kjeldor, but was cast out of their society for seeking eternal life and being a general nutjob. He eventually fell off the map, and no one really knows what happened to him.

Narset, Enlightened Master : 3RWU
Legendary Creature-Human Monk
"Whenever Narset, Enlightened Master attacks, exile the top four cards of your library. Until end of turn, you may cast noncreature cards exiled with Narset this turn without paying paying their mana costs."
3 Power / 2 Toughness

So, I believe now is the time for Brewing and from what I can tell this would make an amazing card for commander. For fans of Grixis, you’ll definitely notice the similarity with the Grixis Commander Jeleva in how their abilities work.
First off, where Jeleva affects all of your opponents and allows you to only cast one spell, Narset allows you to drop FOUR cards off of your deck and cast TWO of them FOR FREE which I personally feel makes for a better commander in some circumstances depending on your game environment:
-Whereas somewhat Jeleva punishes opponents for good deckbuilding and suffers otherwise, Narset focuses on your own deckbuilding by being able to provide a greater amount of combat tricks or tools to gain advantage.
-With the colors of this card there are two routes that can be taken.
—The first is the control stance that focuses on maintaining board control and winning slowly similar to what we see in modern with “American Control”.
-The second route is the Aggro stance, similar to it’s modern counterpart, “UWR Delver”. This build would focus a lot on combat tricks and dealing good amounts of damage while evading opponents and still being able to deal with problems that arise.
From here I won’t go any further but I will say that I’m excited to see what pops up.

Holy shit!
