Re: AKH Pre-release - how'd you do?

Note, this is probably gonna be a bit wordy, so....TL;DR: Went 3-0 and still left utterly dissatisfied. First things first, I played quite a few games of CanLander leading up to midnight, and that was fun. Then came midnight, and pack distribution. Get seated, begin opening packs. My promo was Chann...

Re: Arclight_Dynamo's Sports Journey

Yeah, the MLB season is much longer than just about every other American sport (I think only NASCAR is actually longer, simply because they start earlier), and as such, you have a lot of games that don't have a whole lot of meaning in the end. The first half of the season is almost entirely sorting ...

Re: Arclight_Dynamo's Sports Journey

The main reason people are excited about early season baseball is just that the season's begun again. Baseball is fairly unique as a sport in that you can go months without paying much attention, hop back in around the beginning or middle of August, and be just in time for the exciting bits of the y...

Re: Magic the Gathering: Ask a Judge

Based on the rulings from Wort, the Raidmother [http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=426039], I believe you can only Conspire the number of times the spell has it (generally only one, potentially more if you have one or more Worts in play).

Re: AER Pre-release - How'd you do?

I......I've had better prereleases. The people were great, which was nice, but the Magic itself was rather meh. I went 1-2 with GW Energy Shenanigans, featuring Gonti's Aether Heart, Lifecrafter's Bestiary, and Architect of the Untamed. The major problem I had was that my GW cards had almost no prot...

I am both a nerdsm'n and a sportsperson, so if you have questions about sports, I will try my best to answer them for you. Can't promise I'll get all of them, as there are some even I don't like/understand, but I'll do what I can.

Went 2-1 with GW Fabricate stuff. Best open from pool and packs was Angel of Invention (which I am not impressed with in the slightest), and managed to get both a promo and non-promo Metalwork Colossus, neither of which I managed to cast all night. Didn't open any of the things I'd hoped to (Aetherw...

As an EDH player, I'm just happy we got one. His abilities are mostly irrelevant, since Immerwolf is the real lynchpin to the deck anyway, imo.

Re: Describe your last tabletop session

So, my group had a session of Call of Cthulhu today. My character managed to get killed through basically no fault of his own (one of the others may have read the Necronomicon, gone crazy, and killed him with his own gun), so I rolled up a replacement at home afterwards. Since the group was last hea...

Yep. I'm personally hoping there's someone in my area who just wants the decks, considering I just want the planes and the planar die, and we can come to an arrangement.

Multiple people on Twitter passing along the word that ECW original Balls Mahoney has passed away the day after his 44th birthday. Damn, the extreme part of the nineties was fun, but it seems to have also shortened a lot of lives after the fact.
