  • Main Topic - Hot Takes or Whatever about Innistrad: Midnight Hunt 

 

  1. Disclaimer - We only have the cards released on or before 09.05.2021 to discuss. 
    1. If you’re into the setting check out these stories from WotC:
  2. The setting: I feel like people really love Innistrad for its horror aspects. Witches, werewolves, ghosts, and vampires are all pretty cool!

 

  • Episode 1: Witch of the Woods - Arlinn

 

  1. https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/magic-story/episode-1-witch-woods-2021-09-02

 

  • Tangles - Featuring Wrenn and Six and Teferi

 

    1. Full art black and white basics.
    2. Rare land cycle - enters the battlefield tapped unless you control two or more other lands
  1. Lands:

 

  • New Mechanics:
  • Day / Night

 

  1. When the game starts, it's neither day nor night
  2. If it's day as a turn begins, and the previous turn's active player didn't cast a spell last turn, it becomes night. Similarly, if it's night as a turn begins if the previous turn's active player cast two or more spells last turn, it becomes day
  3. As it becomes day, all double-faced cards with nightbound transform to their daybound faces. As it becomes night, all double-faced cards with daybound transform to their nightbound faces.

 

  • Disturb

 

  1. Cards can be cast from the graveyard via their disturb cost. 
  2. If these cards go to the graveyard again they are exiled.

 

  • Coven

 

  1. Coven is an ability word that's used to highlight abilities that get better if you control three or more creatures with different powers. 
    1. . For example, a 1/1 creature, a 3/1 creature, and a 4/6 creature have three different powers (specifically, 1, 3, and 4).
  2. Powers refer to a creature’s power, rather than it’s abilities.

 

  • Decayed

 

  1. A creature with decayed can’t block. When it attacks, sacrifice it at end of combat.

 

  • Commander Decks

 

  1. Coven Counters (green-white)
    1.  
    1.  
  2. Undead Unleashed (blue-black)
  3. Speculation on the commander decks

 

  • The Cards

 

  1. I’ve gone through all the previewed cards and have created a list of my favorites. Ryan has not looked at any of the previews, so we will be getting his first time reaction to these cards.

  • Wrap Up

 

  1. 2022 is going to be a great year for magic! We love that they're diversifying the settings of the new set and the crossover secret lairs.
  2. It’s going to be awesome to bring magic with other fandoms and inversely for magic players to be able to experience their favorite properties through the lens of magic. 
  3. There is a lot of exciting stuff coming next year and that can def hit the wallet pretty hard. That being said, you don’t have to buy everything. 
  4. For Example: I know I’m totally not psyched about a Lord of the Rings set personally, but in the end I’m totally glad it’s coming out for those who are very big LotR fans!
  5. What do you think about what’s coming next year? Did you enjoy this kind of episode summing up everything? Let us Know!
