Let’s All Get Hyped for Nightmare Squirrels

4.7.20 Update: The nightmare squirrel cometh. And it is adorable.

Short post this week because I’m moving across the country in the time of coronavirus, but who cares because we’re getting a NIGHTMARE SQUIRREL y’all:

Everything is crazy right now, and we all have to find joy where we can. For me, that joy is located in the words “Nightmare Squirrel,” “different name(s),” and “X is the number of times this creature has mutated.”

Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths seems set to include some straight-up weird Magic cards and mechanics, which is the kind of nonsense I specifically want out of new expansions. Give me your crazy creature types, your inventive mechanics, and your Johnny build-arounds. Prior to seeing this zany teaser list, I was not especially excited for Ikoria. Now, I’m incredibly hyped for it.

So after I finish moving, after the coronavirus recedes, after I find a job – BRING ON THE BEHEMOTHS. If Maro’s teasers are any indication, I am going to play the heck out of this Magic set. Which is good, because my new local game store is likely going to need my money.
