Very cool to participate and raise some money for charity at the same time. Video is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CcnTf1caAUM They announced the entire Commander Collection Green (Designed by Ari) https://scryfall.com/sets/cc1?as=grid&order=set Chord of Calling Cultivate/Kodama’s Reach Eternal Witness Sylvan Caryatid Greater Good Beastmaster Ascension Rampaging Baloths Sakura-Tribe Elder Our predictions are BOOOOOOLLLLLLLD Back in episode 31 we predicted the following cards for Commander Collection Green Ari talked about “White in Commander” and what they are looking to change (or already have that we haven’t seen yet) Congratulations Gavin! So crazy that Gavin has been working on this for 6 years! If I ever need a confidant, I’m picking Gavin! The set’s flavor can pull from any place AND any time Any A1 Bold predictions here? I wanna see old stuff! -Z Ryan Bold Prediction - We’ll see at least one card set on Phyrexia This means, only 4 non-evergreen mechanics, 3 old, 1 new A1 bold predictions for the 3 old (Does partner count here?) Ryan Bold Prediction - 3 old mechanics: Kicker, Renown, Flashback Zack Bold Prediction - Storm, Affinity, Shadow. It isn’t mechanically Commander Horizons Draft is 3 20 card boosters, Draft 2 cards from EACH pack. you end up with a 60 card deck. 2 legends and a foil in every pack Sengir, the Dark Baron I’ve been wanting this since partners released in 2016 Mono-colored Partners! Hal and Alena! How cool is it finally getting to see these 2? Prismatic Piper Ryan Bold Prediction - 1 prismatic piper, 10 rare mono-colored legends (2 of each color). 30 uncommon mono-colored partners (6 of each color) Ryan Bold Prediction - Teferi, mono blue rare Partner (pre spark, so a creature) Zack Bold Prediction - Mono color weatherlight crew partners 41 monocolored Partners! Over 1500 partner combinations now :) 71 Total new Legends in the draft boosters 30 non-partner, 2 / 3 color legends (so this means no 4 or 5 color legends in the set, if my math checks out) Keeper of the Accord Ryan Bold Prediction - Teferi’s Protection will be reprinted! Zack Bold Prediction - Blind Obedience will be reprinted Powerful white cards Extended Art Commander’s Sphere and Command Tower extended art Ryan Bold Prediction - Cultivate extended art Ryan Bold Prediction - Arcane Signet extended art Zack Bold Prediction - Brainstorm Extended Art (ice age) Zack Bold Prediction - Blood Artist Many other common/uncommon stables will get this same treatment 32 Popular legends will get reprinted with Etched Foil treatment (These can appear in draft boosters) Each new legend (71 of them) can also appear in Etched Foil Etched foils appear in draft boosters infrequently Etched foils appear in every Collector booster Zack Bold Prediction - There will be a Niv Mizzet, Parun Etched Foil Man, this is giving me a conundrum, cause I want to draft the set, like BADLY, but also may be a while before I can get together with folks, and the extended art cards look awesome. Also are there extended art etched foils? Extended art cards ONLY appear in Collector Boosters Video of the treatment on Gavin’s Youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PG3p0xlcQJU Prossh, Skyraider of Kher Ryan Bold Prediction - Kess, Dissident Mage will be one of the reprint commanders Ryan Bold Prediction - Teysa Karlov will be one of the reprint commanders   Etched Foils No double-faced cards Ryan Bold prediction - This will be a changeling, because the two legendary options don’t seem like fun draft environment cards: https://scryfall.com/search?as=grid&order=name&q=%28type%3Alegendary+type%3Akithkin%29    (Could also be a non-legendary creature, but the way Gavin said it makes me think it was a Ruse) Zack Bold prediction - it will be a five color sliver. At least one kithkin They used a spreadsheet to test the partners (so you know it’s serious!) Jeska will likely be a Planeswalker that can be a commander Ryan Bold Prediction - This will be a new card, the current options aren’t great: https://scryfall.com/search?as=grid&order=name&q=type%3Acreature+commander%3AG+cmc%3D6+rarity%3Ac&unique=cards (Or Elvish Aberration is downshifted to common) Zack Bold Prediction - It will be Vorstclaw. 6 mana common green creature that is NOT Colossal Dreadmaw Ryan Bold Prediction - We will see a mono-Black Aetherborn uncommon legend Zack Bold Prediction - people holding a piece of fence New Characters All mono-colored legends have partner. Any 2 color or more legends won’t have partner (Stand-alone as Jules said) Enemy Crowdlands (Battlebond) are in this set! Releases November 6th Questions Anything goes here, let’s each at least put 3 bold predictions Ryan Bold Prediction - We will finally see the W/B Angel that is a sister to Sigarda, Bruna, and Gisela Ryan Bold Prediction - A pre-spark U/R Dack Fayden legend Ryan Bold Prediction - We will get a legendary creature that is a hint about the Wanderer, and it somehow involves Fblthp Zack Bold Prediction - Praetors will be reprinted. Zack Bold Prediction - Primeval Titan will be reprinted / unbanned Zack Bold Prediction - Urza Planeswalker Final Bold Predictions Booster Fun Commander Legends!!!
