Vintage Cube Draft Report

So I have a tumblr that I update infrequently, but now that I've set up MTGO to record my drafts, I decided to get back on it. So I did a recap of the draft here . I'd really appreciate it if you checked it out. At some point I'll get recordings of the games up. But if you want to leave any question...

Re: Design a Card

SixFootTurkey - You are correct, it should say owner's library. In addition, in FoW you can attack other creatures, but you can still block even if they attack a creature and the creature has to be tapped. And in FoW, Cheshire Cat is a single U "will", so I made the card 1U to hopefully fi...

Re: Design a Card

So I came up with a card design I've tried to adapt from a different TCG, Force of Will. So here is the card: Ephemeral Trickster 1U Creature - Illusion Shroud When ~ enters the battlefield, draw two cards, then put one card from your hand on top of your library. If ~ dies, shuffle it into your libr...

Re: Describe your last tabletop session

So I just got back from a recent Call of Cthulhu session. We're doing the Mask of Nyarlathotep campaign, for those who know of it, and we just ascended a pyramid talked with Nyarlathotep and booked it out of there. My character died and became the Avatar of Nyarlathotep and another character died. S...

Re: The Magic Venting Thread

Last week I went 1-2 at our Monday Night Drafts, and nearly lost to the deck running 4x Dreadwaters and Sphinx's Tutelage. I lost Game 2 to Mill and nearly tilted off.

Re: Design a Card

SixFootTurkey - The first two abilities aren't that wordy, so really your comments are about the ultimate. I think that I've worded it appropriately, unless you have a better way to write out that emblem.

Re: Design a Card

SixFootTurkey - The Theme of Aryn is to be a combat oriented planeswalker. A small part of her backstory is that she was a member of the Boros in Ravnica when she went out on a patrol and had a bad thing happen causing her spark to ignite. She is a master tactician, being able to see the flow of bat...

Re: Design a Card

Memo, the +1 reads "Until end of turn, up to one target creature you control gains Vigilance and Menace." It's literally the first clause in that sentence. As per the ultimate, I at first had it as "You choose which creatures attack and block" but that would be too gamebreaking a...

Re: FTV: Angels

FTV's usually don't have all alternate art, but so far we've seen 3 alt arts with the key art not having a card yet. This is also a way to put older cards into the hands of the wanting public. For example, Rolling Thunder in FTV: Annihilation was only printed in Portal before being in FTV.

Re: FTV: Angels

The big thing to remember about the FTV series, is that they try to make sure each color is represented. Now FTV: Angels is going to be White heavy, and we know two of the cards: Akroma, Angel of Wrath and Akroma, Angel of Fury with sweet Terese Neilsen art. Cards I'd like to see are: Aurelia, the W...

Re: Magic Origins Pre-release. How'd you do?

My Promo was Abbot of Kheral Keep and I played RG aggro with Zendikar Incarnate and I got double Orbs of Warding (lrrFRUMP), Honored Hierarch, Scab-Clan Berserker, Dw...

Re: Is Ugin going to lose his spark?

Notice that it says "Dragon creature card", that way you can't grab non-dragon creatures with it. Similarly they said "Ugin planeswalker card" on Haven because the template is SUBTYPE CARD TYPE card when referencing cards in the graveyard.

Re: Magnum Rewatch Ep 18 - Billy Joe Bob

To be fair, lynching is more about mob justice than vigilante justice. That said lynching is bad and making the Texan/Southerner hang a guy is a bit negative towards that stereotype. I feel like it would've made more sense for Billy Joe Bob to shoot Ito-san, but the hanging is more "convenient&...

Re: TTC 84 - Modern Masters 2015 Spoilers

From what I can tell, MowDownJoe has the right archetypes. The only ones that haven't been confirmed are R/W, U/G, or U/B.

And Hurkyl's Recall doesn't see a TON of play in Modern, but it seems more play in older formats where artifacts are king.

So which other Runners are going to GP Vegas?

I'm headed down on the 27th and leaving June 1st, and I want to get a runner get-together up and running.


Also, there are Two headed giant Modern Masters 2015 events each day that I wanna try out. Any takers?
