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

I had a very interesting time at prerelease. I went 0-3-0, yes I drew every single one of my games. All of them went to turns because I had made one of the durdliest decks I had ever created; which also made it a very fun prerelease for me because that's the type of deck I like. I had a fantastic gr...

Re: Magic the Gathering: Ask a Judge

I can't seem to find the answer elsewhere. I'm trying to come up with a combo of midnight oil, harmless offering, ghirapur orrerry and fevered visions. Now the wording on midnight oil is "whenever you discard a card lose 1 life". Does that mean you lose a life for every card you discard or...

Re: Predictions for eldritch moon (spoilers?)

Hahahahaha, use a soul separator on a dead tree of perdition.... Whoooo! I'm a flying tree ghost! Although hilarity of that image aside would be pretty good. Get a triskidekaphobia and a tree of perdition, ofcourse they will try and kill the tree or you win. So they kill it and you then put down a s...

Re: Predictions for eldritch moon (spoilers?)

The garrison is the creature part of the card, so fitting in the battlements is easy as a land, or did you mean the other way around? If you meant what deck to put the garrison in I imagine WR humans will still be a viable deck, put it with the hanweir militia captain, thalia's leiutenant, always wa...

Re: Predictions for eldritch moon (spoilers?)

Well I checked and there are only 3 pairs, 2 of them are either rare or mythic rare and the other pair is common. MaRo says that it wasn't designed for limited. Seems like that leaves plenty of DFC space available. It also depends on how we draft, 3 packs of EMN and who knows (it might feel like ope...

Re: Predictions for eldritch moon (spoilers?)

Well from watching it yesterday they said 3 (or 3 others including the chitterlings host) then in the beginning we might see it being tried out a lot but it may not be that common. It looks so exciting and fun but I don't predict the'll be appearing that often. Emerge seems very fun and flavourful a...

Re: Predictions for eldritch moon (spoilers?)

They just showed the emerge and meld mechanics on the MTG YouTube channel, and showed the graf rats combo on it. So confirmed. I'm glad they're not fake because when I saw them I was so happy, a mechanic dripping with flavor for some really fun cards.

Re: I think I've figured out what Eldritch Moon is about!

I think we've got one of those situations of "some call me Tim?". Emrakul has been called female by everyone on Zendikar because of the worship of her alter ego, though I'm sure she has no idea what gender is in the same way we don't know what the titans identify themselves as, she has sti...

Re: Predictions for eldritch moon (spoilers?)

Personally, I think we're getting a new Tamiyo. I also don't think she's going to be mono-blue this time around. I think she'll be U/G myself. I'm also going to guess she's going to join the Gatewatch. I doubt it will happen, but Arlinn actually becoming a major character and interacting if not joi...

Re: I think I've figured out what Eldritch Moon is about!

(yeah sinister concoction or kindly stranger would be funny, but if you cast her with those on the field you deserve it) Clip Wings, though. Is Emrakul going to be the only flying creature? The image is funny but then again as lsv argues can a tireless tracker be affected by sleep paralysis? Or are...

Predictions for eldritch moon (spoilers?)

So my friend and just watched episode 1 for access magic. Now from the trailer we see chandrail and Gideon fighting for their lives, I'm not sure how this manifest but I really don't see new planeswalker cards for them after bfz block and Kaladesh in the near future. However I do see a new Liliana a...

Re: I think I've figured out what Eldritch Moon is about!

I've been speaking to a friend and emrakul is definitely worth her price,most decks should be able to cost her for about 10 mana and I think Amy delirium deck should be able to cast her for 7 or 8 mana. So a flying, 13/13 trample creature for 8 mana is insane and that's not even the cheapest she can...

Re: On the lore of the Mending and Eldrazi

Call me cynical, but the way Wotc handles their story, I doubt they think about these things as deeply as us fans do. The Gatewatch managed to kill the titans because it was an epic sell of "Look how powerful the gatewatch is! Please love them! Especially Jace!" Alright, you're cynical. A...

Re: Eldritch Moon

I think the main problem with trying to do any sort of real big surprise in mtg is that there is a span of 3 months between sets and a big lead up to each one. Not to mention it's then talked about it on the Internet by everyone. It's telling a story in slow motion, we can see it coming because we h...

Re: Eldritch Moon

If I were a betting man (which I'm not, I'm pretty boring) I'd be putting money down on it being emrakul. For me as long as the eldrazi are represented as "horrors" or demons then I'm happy. Basically, I'd be happy with this mystery being the big huge horror from beyond the stars and appea...

OK, now I'm even more positive that the nickname for westvale abbey has to be sung to the tune of fresh prince of bel air. All sunday whenever I played it I would start singing that; I was just about to put that in the Google doc and that suggestion is already in there twice!

Well I was amazed and went 3-1, at my only other 2 prerelease I never won more than one. So my list was a BW deck with murderous compulsions (couple of those), accursed witch, dead weight,and a mixture of spirit and zombie summons to gain life. My big notables were West Vale abbey (which was my prom...
