Thread: Modern Horizons Spoilers

    Modern Horizons Spoilers

    Currently being spoiled on stream. All cards in this set are legal in Modern on down.

    First spoiler:

    Cabal Therapist
    B, 1/1, Creature-Horror
    At the beginning of your precombat main phase, you may sacrifice a creature. If you do, choose a nonland card name, then target player reveals their hand and discards all cards with that name.

    Great art too.

    New set, replacing the Modern Masters line
    254 cards + BAB card, the BAB card is a reprint
    ALL cards are either brand new to Magic, or are reprints that have NEVER been modern legal (IE, Older than 8th, or Commander/conspiracy type stuff)
    Cards bypass standard, and are immediately legal in Modern and older (Legacy, Vintage)
    June 14th RElease date

    It's interesting that it basically makes your deck full of cabal therapy's if you want it to be. Seems good with/against SFM (with because it's an evasive beater, against because you just wait until they finally have an equip to sac)

    EDIT: just realized it's at the beginning, not just during. That's a lot worse for anti-combo in legacy. Still, a menace 1/1 may be interesting with a relevant anti-hand ability

    Supplemental set that just skips Standard. Has some reprints, but all reprints have never been Modern legal before.

    Was a stealth sort of announcement. Was first partly "leaked" this morning because CFB posted the events associated with this set, so we found out it existed, but none of the details.

    Word on the street is that ""99$ sealed GP entry indicates that the set will be priced as a normal booster set. (recent UMA GP was $150)" but take that with a grain of salt, as I'm not 100% sure about this, vis--vis the announced $6.99 price point per pack on MTGO. It also was not said how many packs come per box.

    Additional spoilers come in May.

    Oh shit, does this mean Modern is coming to MTG Arena? That'd be awesome.

    The timing still works decently with all those combat token producers like Legion Warboss/Goblin Rabblemaster.

    T1 Cabal Therapist
    T2 Bitterblossom

    also seems like a complete beating. If you want to be fancy, you could Dark Ritual out both on T1 to have mana open for T2 (although you still wouldn't get Therapies from tokens before T2 this way). But since both parts are dirt cheap and good on their own, this combo is probably something to look out for in the future.

    Hoping this cures the fundamental problem with Modern having broken linear decks. If they make a Delver-esque tempo deck viable it could really solve a lot of problems in helping police the never-ending nonsense that goes unchecked in the format. If they don't fix that problem its just gonna be the format of constant bannings.

    Also good with Young Peezy (every spell you cast can also double as a Cabal Therapy) and Lingering Souls.

    Could also be good with Veteran Explorer.

    Ideally it would be in a deck that makes use of the creature itself otherwise I'm not sure its as good as the original Cabal Therapy. Seems like if they have to waste removal on this guy you are already winning.

    A repeatable sac outlet for Nic Fit? Sounds good. Would the deck run up to 8 Therapy effects? With 8x Therapies, 4x GSZ and 4x Explorers, that would give quite a bit of consistency for T2 shenanigans.

    You mean T6 shenanigans

    T1 Therapist
    T2 Explorer
    T3 sac explorer for mana

    or

    T1 Explorer
    T2 Therapist
    T3 sac explorer for mana

    Unfortunately it seems very difficult to have this sac anything even as early as turn 2, due to the timing of the trigger.

    Re: Modern Horizons Spoilers

    All signs point to wotc wanting to merge eternal formats. This will be a net negative for legacy, as modern will creep into and appropriate its identity every modern horizons set they release. 200 reprints per set will only take 3 years before every non-reserved list card with tournament viability becomes modern legal. This means, we keep mostly LED, City of Traitors, Cradle, Metalworker and the original duals. We have seen the unsustainable reprint practices from the masterpieces and modern masters sets. Thismwill take it a step further and will be milked out hard

    Wotc will consolidate the fragmented player base and support modern that can be reprinted to demand and thus makes a lot more commercial sense. Given the choice, they will support a format that is not constrained by reserved list for the sole reason of wanting full control over their game.

    Legacy players will be thrown a bone to keep them content and unaware of the bigger picture, until it's too late and the identity of legacy has largely vanished.

    If you're buying Modern Horizons, you are supporting the slow demise of legacy.
