that only works if you do it exactly once per semester. Otherwise, they'll catch on and always answer C.

Re: Magic the Gathering: Ask a Judge

I figure, animate your Sarkhan, cast Dack's Duplicate, animate the duplicate, sac the original Sarkhan to SBAs, then get your Dethrone beats on.

But rules-wise, the Duplicate enters as a copy of Sarkhan the Dragonspeaker, has Haste, and Dethrone.

Re: TTC - FNM Changes and Q&A

It's really strange that a lot of people really do not like the banners, but the obelisks were really good in Alara, even though the draw a card ability makes the banners really good. I guess it must be that with morph in the set, turn three becomes so much more important? The issue with the banner...

Re: Custom cards - Playability assessment

templating: Scrying doesn't reveal the cards, and you can't put one into play during a scry. If you want to manipulate the cards in this way it should probably read: +1: Look at the top two cards of your library. You may put a land from among these cards into play. Put each card either onto the top ...

I'm working on a Narset all the turns and all the combat steps deck. I'm trying to get about 15-ish extra turn spells, and a few extra combat step spells, as well as a bunch of equipment and auras. It's also going to run armageddon, boom//bust, cataclysm, and the like. :twisted:

A couple of things: 1. None of the Eldrazi Titans are dead. The Zendikar storyline ended on a cliffhanger, and last we saw, the plane is still being munched on by Eldrazi. (Although some of the titans might have returned to the blind eternities.) In addition, we've seen a "here's where everyon...

My Lore Seeker pack is usually Innistrad, because it works SO WELL with CNS.

Edit:
I sometimes like to troll my draft group and go for Homelands or Fallen Empires. Otherwise, it's more Conspiracy, or whatever's just come out.

Re: Things to know at my first GP?

Ah okay then I'll ask one of the judges before the event starts then if we're expected to return the land or not, I wouldn't want to walk off with it when I'm not supposed to. Don't worry about it. Return the lands if you don't mind de-sleeving your deck, but nobody's going to bother you about walk...

Bring a water bottle and snacks like apples or granola bars -- stuff that's not too heavy, travels well, and isn't terrible for you. Being hungry will put you on tilt, and you won't have a good time if you have to pay $7 for a crappy hot dog and $3 for a water bottle. If you're going to get stuff si...

That sounds like the goal in my Niv-Mizzet deck. < http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/chaotic-board-1/ > It's intended to make games go long, but it's pretty bad at its job. Knowledge Pool is a fun add, though.

You may want to look into Upwelling as a mana capacitor, too, but keep in mind your opponents get to use it. Are you running Palinchron? Capsize? You should be able to generate arbitrarily large amounts of mana with the former, with a smaller arbitrary number of +1/+1s on Animar (so free fatties), i...
