THE MANA DORK – Quiet Speculation, Commander 2016 Edition

First things first—this weekend is Kaladesh Game Day! Come by the store for tourneys at noon (Facebook event) and 5 PM (Facebook event), where a $6 entry fee gets you a shot at some pretty nice alt-art cards for top-8 and top-32 finishes, as well as a gorgeous mat if you win it all! I don’t have much of a Standard brew going for this Game Day, but luckily, Commander 2016 is just around the corner—spoilers start next week on Monday October 24th, we’ll probably see the full decklists that Friday, October 28th, and the set of decks as a whole comes out Friday, November 11th. So it’s definitely time for some rampant Quiet Speculation! PREDICTION #1: A WHOLE LOTTA COLOUR-FIXING This is one of the easiest predictions to make, so let’s get it out of the way first. Commander 2016 has been confirmed to feature Magic’s first four-colour legendary creatures. (Nephilim, we hardly knew ye.) In order for the decks to be playable out of the box, they’re going to need to include many colour-fixing cards—cards that will ensure you have access to multiple colours of mana very easily. While I’ve seen some rampant quiet speculation that fetchlands like Flooded Strand will be included, I highly doubt this will be the case—they are quite expensive, and Wizards will not want to repeat the problem they had with Commander...

THE MANA DORK-Highway To The Aether Zone

Normally, I kick off my columns about a new set with a series of puns related to upcoming card names or mechanics. However, this is Kaladesh, and it has already done a better job than I ever could:   It’s Kaladesh pre-release weekend at A Muse N Games, folks! Here’s what you need to know about the set. NEW MECHANICS: ENERGY, VEHICLES, AND FABRICATE Powered by the aether suffusing its atmosphere, Kaladesh is Magic’s most technologically-advanced plane yet. As a result, we’ve got three new mechanically-inclined mechanics on their way! Energy Energy is a new type of counter that’s placed on the players themselves, similar to poison counters and experience counters. Many cards in Kaladesh give you Energy, and Energy can be spent on anything that allows you to spend it. Note that, yes, every card that spends Energy has a way to give you Energy. There are some cards that give you Energy without having a way to spend it, but no Energy card in the set is dead on its own. When you’re playing Sealed at the pre-release, keep an eye out for the “Thriving” cycle of commons — Thriving Ibex, Thriving Turtle, Thriving Rats, Thriving Grubs, and Thriving Rhino. Each of these will give you two Energy when they enter the battlefield, and they’re solid creatures for their mana costs. If you’re building an Energy-based deck, having two or...
