Re: TTC - Constructed Update

Almost, but not quite. Here's a step-by-step description of what happens when you have a creature with both Persist and Undying: ⋅  Your creature dies. Both Persist and Undying trigger, and as the controller of both of those effects, you get to choose how to stack them. Both players pass ...

Re: TTC - Constructed Update

I have a quick rules clarification on Undying + Persist. Both go on the stack, but only the top one resolves because the creature is no longer in the graveyard. So if you do this with a Redcap and Mikaeus, it would return as either a 2/2 or a 4/4. When you sacrifice it, the one that didn't resolve l...

Re: LRRcast - Odd Jobs Part 1

Indira Gandhi was not related to Mohandas Gandhi in any way. She was Jawaharlal Nehru's (first Indian PM) daughter. Also, Sikhs were persecuted before her assassination, it just got way worse afterwards.

Re: The House of Stark

I'm not going to be able to watch the stream this Thursday, so if you want to do your first playthrough "as intended" I suggest Capra cheese. First, buy a ton of dung pies and a couple anti-toxic moss from the merchant in the aqueduct. Equip them to your item slot and a short bow to one of...

Re: IDDQDerp

Couldn't disagree more. Observation is going to help you, but what observation in a reasonable timeframe is going to tell you what poise is, or what the tiny icons marked with letters mean on weapon stats, or why humanity is good and what you can do with it. You can learn what poise means by changi...

Re: IDDQDerp

I think a lot of the reason the dark souls community is dismissive to new players is defensiveness. There are a lot of people that start playing the souls series who whine and moan about how their death was "bullshit" and blame the game for being unfair. Fans are afraid that From Software ...

Re: TTC - The Cubelet

The cubelet sounds like a fun thing to solomon draft. First, shuffle all the cards in the packs together and put the top three cards of the stack into three face down piles. In turns, players look at the first card and decides if they want it. If they do, they take it and replace it from the stack. ...

Re: TTC - BNG Impressions & Storytime

Dread Charge is your rare. In my estimation, Opalescence and the gods' interaction depends on what order they came into play. If the Opalescence came into play first, then the god's text applies. If the god came into play first, then Opalescence applies. If they both come into play off Warp World, e...

Re: TTC - Further Thoughts on Theros

The difference between Hydroblast and Blue Elemental Blast is Hydroblast can target a permanent even if it isn't red. Singularity was the name of a Reset/High Tide legacy deck. Riddle of Steel is a much better name for a Sharuum/Blightsteel deck. Urza appeared on a card disguised as a Hill Giant (Bl...

Pikers at 2/1 for 1R have been around since what 5th edition/portals and they have been pretty good and terrible up and down but they keep coming back and keep getting play. Except now pikers cost 1U, have flash, and recast a card in the yard. Jackal Pup and Watch Wolf used to be exciting and power...

Re: TTC - Theros Flavour & Origins

This podcast is always interesting/awkward for me. It is interesting to hear perspectives from newer players, although I do a lot of face-palming. Especially depressing are your evaluations of older creatures. If the ridiculous creature power creep continues as it has been, in ten years time uncondi...

Re: TTC - 2013 Rules Changes

This rules change isn't nearly as bad as the "damage no longer uses the stack" travesty. The new sideboard rules are actually a positive change overall, and the new legend rule is still better than the original. I never like it when they remove cool tricks from the game, so I am not comple...
