Re: TTC 119 - Brewing a Highlander Deck

This was interesting to listen to, because a lot of the combos that were put into the deck are ones I have in my Kresh the Bloodbraided EDH deck, which I've actually considered turning into a highlander deck. As they went through it though, I realized I don't have the money to get the manabase or th...

Crapshot: The Advertising

I'm not 100% on how best to communicate this idea visually, but the jist of my idea is having a personification of advertising as it exists now, compared to how it used to be. The best thing I can think of is having someone walk up to a store with a poster on the side that has a person loudly, excit...

Re: The Magic Venting Thread

My past couple weeks with magic have not been great. I tried going to a prerelease for BFZ, but when I get to the store there's a sign on the door saying they moved 2 miles across town only a couple days prior. The kicker? The new address was not listed on the WotC store locator and even the store's...

Re: TTC 100 - PAX Prime 2015 Recap

I do like charm or base lands for the new nickname. As to what was announced during PAX, I look forward to buying tons of packs of BFZ and never once getting an expedition. I do wish they had really committed to the "full-art" aspect though, as having a 70% opacity textbox still really get...

I'm glad that this movie was chosen, because I otherwise might not have seen it and it really is great in pretty much every aspect. Because this is the first episode since Prometheus, I can't help but make comparisons to the criticisms leveled at that movie. The one that sticks out the most to me is...

Re: LRRcast - Alexisms

One Alex-ism I didn't think to ask about until recently, but where does "MAHP" come from? It only comes up when Alex gets winged with friendly fire or stung by a botched grenade throw, so it hasn't come up with most of the games he's been playing lately.

Going by the "strictly worse" comparison that's been going around for Origins at large, I guess this guy is kind of a strictly worse Grimgrin, Corpse-Born...only not really. Being one colour and generally having more ways to untap make it better in those regards. I look forward to seeing a...

Re: Describe your last tabletop session

Right now I'm playing a heroes campaign in D&D 3.5, and we're squaring off with a group of frost giants. My monk had not been doing stellar amounts of work, mostly doing trips to cause them to fall into our wizards spells but not doing any real damage on his own. We end up on the last of the gia...

Re: Magnum Rewatch Ep08 - Missing in Action

I think the reason why little communication happens between Eric and Magnum is because it may not ever be directly stated (haven't actually watched the episode), but Eric has every reason to believe that Magnum is Delta 1. Earlier having been told that Laura is with someone from Delta whatever, and ...

Re: Commander/EDH Deck Talk

I'm retooling my Jund EDH deck a bit, and need to free up some slots for Act of Treason type effects. My deck is centered around making lots of things die, and I'm not sure if these cards are worth keeping or not. http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=4534 http://gatherer....

Re: Magic the Gathering: Ask a Judge

Darn, I was hoping that the alter rules weren't that strict, and you could just sleeve them on top of your run of the mill basics so they could be used in any format. The design can't let text from other cards show through, and trying to print directly on top of the card would make them look like ga...

Re: Magic the Gathering: Ask a Judge

Not so much of a corner case of interactions, but just a question about legality: are custom made basic lands allowed in sanctioned play? I've designed a bunch and I wanted to know if it could be lumped in with alters or proxies. Ideally, I'd like to sell them since they're made with all of my own p...

Okay, So I'm looking through the spoiler list for Commander 2014 and I see Reef Worm. It's kind of a silly card so I chuckle and continue on with my day. About 20 minutes later, it clicks, and I bust a gut laughing. The spell is literally "Summon Bigger Fish". I wanted to tell someone righ...

Re: TTC - Thoughts on BTT Draft

Once they mentioned the idea of it being a god card, I couldn't not make this one. I realize the effect isn't immediately game changing, but working with other pro-colour effects could get goofy, plus I wanted it to function like editing cells in some way. It's not like these will ever have to be pl...

Re: Theories on sorting Magic cards

I sort by colour > type > CMC > rarity > set. I don't play too many different formats (most of the people I play with don't even recognize formats), so that's why set always falls last for me. I also sort by rarity mostly because the lions share of my collection came from two "treasure boxes&qu...

Now that the whole set's been revealed we can start guess which cards will be worth the most.

My understanding of the miracle mechanic is that it comes into effect any time you would draw cards, so long as the miracle card is the first card drawn. It's entirely possible that I've completely misread this and am wrong about it, but if it works like I think it does, it might still be viable in ...
