Re: Do I just not get Strive?

commune with the gods does that, doesn't it? Although you're milling yourself in the process.

Speaking of, there does seem to be a pretty decent BG re-animator deck in Theros block

Re: The Sex Thread 2: Because Two Hands Are Better Than One

both myself and my SO have been tested and are clean, and she's on the pill, so I'm not in the habit of using condoms. We have on occasion because of mitigating circumstances - antibiotics can limit the effectiveness of the pill, for example - and I found that they were not terrible comfortable (I t...

Re: #YesAllWomen

I think just using reported rape statistics to say how many 'rapers walk among us' is actually quite an unhelpful way of thinking about it with regards to women (or anyone) feeling threatened. Rapists are the tip of an iceberg, and that iceberg is a general culture of disrespect for women. Granted t...

Re: Boycott Anti-Skeleton Bigot Alex Steacy

In fact, in the brutal actions of one video James and indeed the rest of the crew in crossing the streams, the crew not only activity endorse skeleton racism, but take part in it themselves. I'm sure we're all heard the various damning remarks they've made in the process

Re: Boycott Anti-Skeleton Bigot Alex Steacy

I feel like this thread really has a bone to pick. In fairness, it really is a meaty issue, and I've love to see Dominic Appleguard flash out his arguments. Now, lets not get cagey, there's nothing wrong with a little bit of gentle ribbing. In any case, if ALex had any backbone, he'd come out and de...

Re: "And then what happens?;" The writing workshop thread

I would be vary wary of using a thesaurus, especially if you don't know what the word actually means, because generally speaking, no 2 words in the English language mean exactly the same thing. They can be interchangeable in certain situations, but two words will not always be interchangeable, so yo...

Re: For the lols

Rowling did it sparingly enough that when a character that when she killed a character she had made you care about, it did come as a bit of a shock. When, as in the last book, the body count started stacking up and their deaths glossed over, it was a deliberate counterpoint to the rest of the serie...

I think both Moffatt and martin are actually quite bad at it for opposite reasons. Someone like Rowling or Jordan(/Sanderson) do the job...

I never really get jokes like this because moffatt is actually terrible at killing characters. He keeps bringing them back, moreso than Martin or Rowling (both of whom are guilty if this as well)

I tend to agree with Canageek about Chekhov's gun. Bear in mind that Chechov was writing short stories and plays, where economy is all important. You don't want unnecessary set dressings, because it distracts the audience. You don't want to describe irrelevant things in a short story because you wan...

Re: TTC - Journey Into Nyx Impressions

I feel like they missed a trick with casting the gods. Keranos and to a less extend kruphix would be much better if you could get them out earlier in the game. If they were 3 drops, you use your whole turn getting them of curve, but the card advantage of Keranos on turn 4 would be really relevant, a...

I think someone with time on their hands should go through the twitch chat from yesterday and put all the snorsh facts that were established in one, easily reference place. there was some pretty deep world building going in there!

Also, I really hope LRR grabs snorsh with both hands.

Re: The Journey Into Nyx Happy Fun Spoiler Time Thread!

I don't think pharika is awful. There does seem to be a deck in theros block that want to use the graveyard and it seems to be in G/B. So with the right other tools, I think being able to generate loads of 1/1 deathtouch creature to hold down the board might be pretty useful. I think it just looks b...

Re: "And then what happens?;" The writing workshop thread

Hmm, what you have here is a really good set up - a really good act one. You now need to ask yourself 'where is the character going?' how do you envisage the story changing the character? To work that out, I would try to think about the main character and what is lacking in her personality. What is ...
