Re: The Escapist

Graham's touched on it briefly... during the Checkpoint stream I think? As I understand it the only current plan is that Graham will be on this PAX panel. They're way too busy rn to add new shows, what with the Road Quest and all. But who can ever tell what the future brings. [edit] For anyone missi...

Re: Magic the Gathering: Ask a Judge

Have a look at https://whatsinstandard.com/ - it's a clean page that shows what sets are currently in standard, and when they will rotate out.

Short version is it'll still work the same way - each time the fall set comes out, a year's worth of sets will fall out of standard.

Re: Magic the Gathering: Ask a Judge

The loyalty counters aren't 100% useless... normally Kytheon would die to Moonmist (as he'd transform into Gideon with no loyalty) but here because he still has loyalty counters, a second Moonmist won't kill him, he'll just transform back into the Planeswalker with as much loyalty as he had before. ...

The condition is "If a land is tapped for two or more mana"... which means that (a) you've activated a mana ability (b) on a land (c) that includes {T} in the cost (d) that would produce two or more mana. The oracle text for Mana Flare is: "Whenever a player taps a land for mana, that...

I'm sorry about that. We definitely don't want the channel to feel unwelcoming, but I get that a contextless chat purge can feel a bit sharp. I do kinda wish that Twitch had better support for the "purge" option... what's actually being done there from our end is to give someone a timeout ...

Re: The General Magic: The Gathering Thread

Since it came up on LRRMtG today, I wanted to crunch the numbers for how likely it is for a specific common to not be opened in a draft. Specifically: the chance that zero Garys are opened in a triple-Theros draft. So first off, let's consider the chance of opening Gary in a pack that doesn'...

Re: General LRL Stream Feedback

Unless I'm mistaken, it still looks like they're alternating. They've said the slot will be mostly AFK, occasionally CtS when they find a good game that fits well. If the calendar says they're alternating, that's probably just a placeholder for future weeks where they haven't picked a game yet. But...

Re: General LRL Stream Feedback

AFK isn't going away though, it's just moving to a different day on the schedule. If anything, the number of non-Magic AFK streams should go up. What the new paper magic streams are really taking the place of is mostly CtS... but from what they're saying, keeping CtS as a weekly show was getting pre...

Re: Magic the Gathering: Ask a Judge

That depends on when they cast Farm. Eternal of Harsh Truths triggers when it "attacks and isn't blocked" - specifically, that means it triggers during the Declare Blockers step if your opponent declares blocks and chooses not to block the Eternal. So if they cast Farm after blockers are d...

I'm not 100% sure, but I agree with SixFootTurkey... the copy effect on the Clone will override the Soul Separator's shenanigans, and it won't be a 1/1, flying, or a spirit (unless the thing you're copying is, of course). I went looking for confirmation and found this discussion which agrees... Of c...

So, I was watching the AER crack-a-case stream VOD, and realised there was something of an opportunity there... Cause, obviously you can tell the distribution of the normal cards in boosters. And we know how often you get a foil (1 in 67 cards, it's in the fine print on the boosters). But I've neve...

The different "types" of mana are WUBRGC. Snow isn't a "type" of mana, rather snow mana costs can only be paid by mana "produced by a snow permanent", which Naga Vitalist is not.

When you cast a fused Beck // Call, the card on the stack has two names, "Beck" and "Call". It doesn't have the name "Beck // Call". Same way that it three colours: Green, White and Blue. It is does not have the colour "Green // White // Blue". A Prism Ring na...

(Usual caveats for talking about unreleased cards before the Release Notes get published, you know the drill) 1. The printed embalm tokens take some liberties with the text... Look at, say, the ability on Vizier of Many Faces - the card spells out "make a copy, but if this is an embalm token, d...

My thoughts on the Invocations look can be summed up as basically... it looks like they had a big brainstorming session to think of ideas, and then they used all of them.
