I question myself if the Reserve cards lean towards "Fantasy" thematically or is it coincidence?

You may find many mystical and wonderful things on your Adventure.

My first impression was this is some sort of wonky delayed Upgrade.  Since one of the main uses of Upgrade is to trash Coppers, I couldn't quite see the point.  The examples suggest that the flexibility of choosing a useful card to go straight to hand is valuable, although you're still wasting a card in an earlier turn to pay for it.

Eric J. Carter did the mat. It shows some of the characters from the Reserve cards in a tavern. Beyond that you will have to wait until the set is out to see it.

I really hope this is one of the guys just casually chilling in the Tavern.

That's a fantastic card. Wow.. It's a slow card sure, but it's power is in the versatility it brings to the table.

Or maybe he's turning a rainbow parrot into a roc.

Instead of buying Tournaments, you can simply keep your Transmogrify on your Tavern mat until your Province shows up and then gain that Tournament right into your hand.

This has great potential for any cards that require certain collisions, e.g., Treasure Map. Just buy one, then wait "for the right moment".

This card: not the strongest because it's pretty slow, and it's so hard to play correctly, but who cares? Losing with this card is more fun than winning without it!

Wow, I lllove that Reserved cards concept, and especially this one.

It makes the possibility of randomly losing the game because of bad draws way smaller.

Is there an extra comma in there?

Should "At the start of your turn, you may call this, to trash..." be, "At the start of your turn, you may call this to trash..."?

Because if so, this entire expansion is ruined for me.

If I Transmogrify Squire to Watchtower, can I reveal it to topdeck the gained Attack?

If I Transmogrify Estate to Market Square, can I reveal it for the trashed Estate?

It's up to $1 more, so you can't actually remove Copper with it in the same way as you would with Upgrade.

Trash from Transmogrify happens before Gaining, so you have to resolve Trashing first.  Then Gain.  In the first case, you'd Gain the Attack before you Gain the Watchtower.

No.  You're trashing first, and then you're gaining.  The gaining happens after the trashing.  Both of those effects happen *when* trash.

It’s especially powerful with cards that have on-trash abilities. You can transmogrify a Cultist into another Cultist just to draw 3 cards. And when you Transmogrify a Fortress, you keep the Fortress in your hand and gain a Wharf into your hand on top of that. Instant engine!

HOLY ****. I just read this. Mind = Blown

This might be my favorite card, replacing Counterfeit..

Wow, that's legit..

Also, there's playing two Highways, transmorgifying a Forge into a Province, and then playing Duplicate to gain another Province. We could see Duplicator rushes if Bridge/Highway/Princess is on the board. :O

trans•mog•ri•fy: verb
– transform, especially in a surprising or magical manner.
Also:

noun; An "Influence" card played during a players turn in PKCards.

PKCards: A CCG/TCG combining the scoring mechanics of War and Euchre with mythical theming and pvp made popular by MtG

Disclaimer: I thought this game was immensely fun, and have never liked MtG.

Downfall: Tried to compete with MtG, YuGiOh, Pokemon by method of displacement. Owner did not believe in marketing.

Woo-hoo, i always hoped for a Fantasy themed expansion. I kind of guessed it when the title was revealed, Lost City and Magpie made it pretty plausible, and now i think it's confirmed. Finally! I like how this reminds me of Transmute, just that this is absolutely great. I like the guy on the card, he seems to have a lot of fund being a crazy wizard.

Well, who wouldn't?

About the german Translation: Formwandlung/Umwandlung/Gestaltwandlung seem appropriate.

So I would say this is true of most reserve cards (Guide <3 <3 <3) but it's much less true of Transmogrify; since it's a trasher that's likely to miss shuffles.
