Based on what we've seen so far, it seems unlikely that we'll get an equipment subtheme since RW is still doing the vehicle thing. Hopefully we can get a red card or two that cares about equipment in some way.

I've been in these threads for years now, and it's never been the case that most people here were more excited by rares than uncommon removal.

The "expertise" part of the card is a cycle I proposed in design. Since we want players to "feel like inventors," I pitched this idea to combine two spells together. You didn't need energy or artifacts to make it work, either, so it's more backward compatible than some other inventor-feeling mechanics in the set. My proposed card was a 3WW "Destroy all creatures" with a free four-drop...but at some point Fumigate became a powerful 3WW white sweeper in Kaladesh. Inevitably, one card per cycle ends up making tokens, so this time we're making Servos to no doubt perform some civil engineering tasks.

You get bonus flavor points if you cast Sram's Expertise then cast Sram, Senior Edificer for free. Lead Editor Del Laugel made sure each card in the Expertise cycle can cast its respective legendary creature.

Looks like Yahenni is going to be a 3-drop.

Do I cut black or green here? Both hurt. Really whiffed on mana fixing this draft. I'm thinking green might be the correct answer, but I have slightly more fixing for it and Fastbond + Timetwister = living the dream.

On this, if you have 2 Energy, you are forced to pay it no matter what.

I think this is a pretty clever design. You can use it as an energy generator, or pay GGG for the elephant, but you're limited in the former to just EE.

I find the nonbo with poison funny. Neat design. I really like Siege Modification, even if it probably isn't super great.

Dino-train is amazing.

Out with the Old R

Instant

Exile target Equipment. Search target player's graveyard, hand, and library for all Equipment cards and exile them. Then that player shuffles his or her library.

Draw a card.

"You asked for this!"

This card is obviously fake FYI

Obviously I still have a lot of adjustments to make, was trying to decide on my colors before I fine tuned. And my lands always stay in SB before I finish picking my 22-25.

In the end I kept black, Mind Twist is too good

Bulk dragon, but with improvise, you could cast this and another card in one turn.

Trailer link that isn't broken. Fun in a Saturday morning way. I could have sworn they said they wouldn't make trailers for second sets anymore after Eldritch Moon, but I guess they considered that one a success.

SaffronOlive did a modern Jeskai flyers thing with that as a 4 of a couple of days ago. I assume it's that.

That's been my assumption based on the research I did, yeah. I, much to my frustration, noticed the price spike when I was trying to get a non-foil one to match the foil one I picked up a couple weeks ago as part of my "Get all the cards Rebecca Guay did art for" plan.

In general WotC should probably be looking to move some focus away from the purely "skill"-based Pro Tour and towards hand-picked Invitationals.

Somehow I missed a major difference between revolt and morbid: morbid can also react to your opponent's creatures dying, while revolt only cares about your own stuff.

Also, since I keep forgetting this, I imagine others do too. Fabricate is not in Aether Revolt.

EDIT: Just realized Consulate Dreadnought is a reference to Phyrexian Dreadnought. It probably even had the same stats before being weakened.

Head shape - looks more like rhino.
Largest horn is the middle one (triceratops has large side horns).
Many of the other vehicles are modeled after creatures that live in India.

On the other hand, it has side bits that look sort of like the triceratops' crest (I originally saw these as part of the neck), and the mouth looks a little more beak-ey, like the triceratops.

I mean I'm not saying Fatal Push isn't good. I'm saying it's not the kind of card that makes me excited about the set or brewing. You just put 4 of them in decks that can reliably trigger Revolt.

Seems alright, but it's odd as a rare.
