Hi! We've got another update for you that I forgot to update yesterday, but we totally have it!

First, we've got 5 new sets! You guys sent sets in, we looked over them, and these five came out. If your set was rejected for some reason, you're certainly welcome to fix up any problems and send it back. We're looking at December 1st for the next set additions, so hopefully that goes as planned!

NEW TO MSE wrote:
• Kaleidoscope (KLC), Zero (ZER), Xoltan Premodern, (XPM), The Golden Era (TGE), and Path of Shadows (PSA) have all been included in MSEM
• The Banned tab has been replaced with a new Notes section
• New tabs have been added for Commanders and Hidden zones
• Drafting a set with a Masterpiece Series now has a small chance to open a Masterpiece in the pack
• New scripts have been added for most token, scry, and flip abilities

We noticed a few cards were pretty dumb once put into constructed. With Tinkerer's Tools doings its best impression of Transmute Artifact, a card that costs Blue mana symbolBlue mana symbol and X mana symbol and is strong enough to be pointed in Canadian Highlander, it could easily make an infinite combo not only viable, but consistent early-game with Endless Reverie. With Kalro doing its best impressions of Blood Moon and Solitary Confinement, it not only is getting banned but lead to an overhaul of the Fortresses card type.

• Deadly Manipulation
• Aetherforge
* Kalro, Desert Outpost
* Tinkerer's Tools

Next, there's some really big rules changes:

Destiny wrote:
• Ophorio's Destiny mechanic has been replaced with Revive
• Revive [cost] ([cost], Exile this card from your graveyard: Create a token that's a copy of it except it has no mana cost. Revive only as a sorcery)

Destiny had a problem of looping almost endlessly, so it eventually just became another embalm variant. We welcome it just the same.

Fortresses wrote:
Remember those things that you had to attack before you attacked a player and also functioned as a planeswalker? Maybe you did, maybe you didn't, but it was a bit out of hand. Creature decks already struggle among the sea of control and combo, and Fortresses also shutting down those decks made it even more difficult. Fortresses are now planeswalkers featuring the Fortress subtype, so you can only have one and they no longer force attacks against them.

Masterpieces wrote:
We have masterpieces now! Not all of the sets do, but right now, Mious has its playsets of Angels and Ophorio has what I believe is Enchantments/Reflections? Keep in mind, if these cards are not normally MSEM legal, they won't be after being printed as a masterpiece, just like how masterpieces regularly work.

We had a nonzero amount of cards that needed changing or tweaking, but none of them are quite as painful.

Assorted Card Updates wrote:
• The Trap subtype has been added to Pyre Trap and Firewall Trap
• Firewall Trap now targets a second creature instead of a creature and player
• Break Hold now targets creatures you control
• Veteran Lifegorger no longer has lifelink
• Veteran Lifegorger no longer increases the cost of non-Artifact spells
• EHSAE, Entelan Skycraft is now a vehicle
• Ophorio's Destiny mechanic has been replaced with Revive

• SOR's promos have vanished. If you were using promos from SOR before, they'll be back before the GP.

All that aside, we hope you enjoy what MSEM has to offer! May the spirits guide your path wherever it leads.

Okay, as we mentioned during the last update, the goal is to get the next release of sets out on December 1st to keep in line with our bimonthly set updates. In order to make that work as well as possible, we have a deadline for set submissions on the 13th of November, when GP Dubai begins. As a reminder, to submit a set, you can send it to any member of the council.
