Speculating about Mark Rosewater's Ikoria teasers

The following can be found in Ikoria

Yesterday, Mark Rosewater was kind enough to leave us [link](https://markrosewater.tumblr.com/post/612967583098011648/maros-ikoria-teaser)(several teasers) for the next set, Ikoria. Let's discuss here each teaser that Mark released. The following can be found in Ikoria: * Magic's seventh egg * I researched and [link](https://cardsrealm.com/carta?&oracle=egg&creature_type=&color_operator=and&card_name=&super_type=&super_type_2=&format=&colors=&types=&price_first=0&price_second=400&order=card_real_min%20DESC&card_format=&)(found more than 7 eggs in Magic). Eggs can be creatures as well as artifacts. *[EDITED] for eggs in creature subtypes, it has 6, you can find them [link](https://cardsrealm.com/carta?&oracle=&creature_type=egg&color_operator=and&card_name=&super_type=&super_type_2=&format=&colors=&types=&price_first=0&price_second=400&order=card_real_min%20DESC&card_format=&)(here)*. Some examples below: [image](https://cdn.cardsrealm.com/images/cartas/en/m19-core-set-2019-dragon-egg-138.jpg?2493) [image](https://cdn.cardsrealm.com/images/cartas/en/eld-throne-of-eldraine-golden-egg-220.jpg?4168) * A card with the text "4 or more times this game" * We have several cards with the text 4 or more times this turn, but never 4 or more times *this game*. Is it a skill that will make you win the game right away? [image](https://cdn.cardsrealm.com/images/cartas/en/cma-commander-anthology-dragon-whelp-81.jpg?844) *A card with the text "total power 10 or less"* Vehicle crewing is often a "full power X or *more*" ability. The "or less" part is very strange, because it implies that zero power is already being counted in the skill. It is probably a card that "if you have full power 10 or less", it does not do anything. A card with a restriction to be able to attack for example. *Magic’s largest power/toughness granting aura.* That statement is complicated. It means that in this edition we will have a more powerful card than the one below: [image](https://cdn.cardsrealm.com/images/cartas/en/roe-rise-of-the-eldrazi-eldrazi-conscription-3.jpg?8517) * A card with the text “X is the number of times this creature has mutated”* This gives us a lot of information. The first is that the ability to "mutate" can be done multiple times as opposed to abilities like "monstrosity". The second information is that each time a creature is "mutated", it gains something, I imagine something along the lines of +X/+X. * Magic’s third and fourth card with “(Zero is even.)” reminder text.* [image](https://cdn.cardsrealm.com/images/cartas/en/bfz-battle-for-zendikar-void-winnower-17.jpg?3040) [image](https://cdn.cardsrealm.com/images/cartas/en/lrw-lorwyn-ashlings-prerogative-150.jpg?7221) The two cards are not being played much, mainly because the effect is not suitable for all creatures. *Three cards with the text “different name(s)”* In the history of Magic, cards with the text "different names" usually see play. There are 12 cards with this text on them. Examples of cards with this text: [image](https://cdn.cardsrealm.com/images/cartas/en/m20-core-set-2020-field-of-the-dead-247.jpg?9511) [image](https://cdn.cardsrealm.com/images/cartas/en/ss1-signature-spellbook:-jace-gifts-ungiven-5.jpg?3289) [image](https://cdn.cardsrealm.com/images/cartas/en/hou-hour-of-devastation-uncage-the-menagerie-137.jpg?2046) * Twelve different types of counters - A card that says “choose a kind of counter at random” - A card with the text “remove eight foreshadow counters”* I have grouped these 3 phrases by Mark Rosewater because they all represent something new in this edition. Never before have we had so many counters and we've never seen foreshadow counters. *And a cycle that players have been asking us to make for over ten years* There are several cycles that have been requested for more than 10 years. What was most speculated in our team is the cycle of allied fastlands. Lands as [card](Blackcleave Cliffs) were printed only once and in Scars of Mirrodin in 2010, more than 10 years. [image](https://cdn.cardsrealm.com/images/cartas/en/som-scars-of-mirrodin-blackcleave-cliffs-224.jpg?485) *Conclusion* What do you think? If you believe that we are wrong in something, comment so that we can all speculate together.
