Re: Uphill both ways, in Snow-Covered Mountains

Wait for Khans. It's not a long wait and the prerelease is a good environment. Look at the intro packs, which are mediocre if sensible decks. The gaming scene is made of the people who populate it. Be awesome and in it, and you will make it more awesome. Having more people to play with will mutate t...

Re: The KHAAAAAAAAAAAAANs of Tarkir Spoiler Thread

My read on Outlast is that you almost never actually use it. You take advantage of the +1/+1 counter clusterbuff with the other cards that put +1/+1 counters on things and go nuts that way. Maybe if you are in a big fat board stall with blockers to spare it becomes some kind of inevitable growth. Ra...

Re: LRRMtG

I have a challenge for a LRRMTG or a MTGO Academy video once KTK has been around for a couple weeks: The mono-color challenge. Pick one color at the start, force it, no gold allowed. There are enough mono-color cards to make it possible, but it'll be weird. Heck, it might actually be good because yo...

Re: The KHAAAAAAAAAAAAANs of Tarkir Spoiler Thread

In terms of overall clan selection I suspect Mardu is going to be popular because it's essentially Borkdos from Dragon's Maze.

I'm going to be all about the bear-punching, though. Green is always my prerelease jam and Temur is some of my favorite limited cards ever.

Re: Magic the Gathering: Ask a Judge

I think Tabak answered that one on tumblr, he said it would come back and the clone could select a new thing to copy. Not a judge but I think I see how that works: Looking at the ability, the returning to the battlefield is part of the same ability as the exile effect, much like Banishing Light (as ...

Re: Watch + Play

I suspect it's a "I did it! I figured out how to make a thing walk! Everyone look!" kind of deal. The game is such a hodge-podge I'm 99.9% certain no professional programmer got within a mile of it.

Re: The KHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANs of Tarkir Spoiler Thread

Notably, many of the Temur control cards also work in Jeskai. I think that learning to ignore the watermarks is going to be a big thing with this set. The mono-color cards have a lot of synergy with all the clans they fit into. Even the two-color cards fit nicely into two clans by and large. I could...

See the Unwritten needs to be in about three of my commander decks (my Marath, Prossh, and Vorosh the Hunter decks to be specific). Hoping that it's irrelevant enough in most competitive contexts to be cheap. It's better than summoning trap but notably worse than Tooth and Nail so, fingers crossed i...

Re: Things on my Stream - Fanpoint+

Q1) How did you start programming? Was it formal classes or self-taught?

Q2) In the process of making props for various sketches, have you ever accidentally come up with something genuinely functional, if not for whatever purpose the sketch needed it for?

Mentor? Sorin. Sorin's plot always goes the same way, or at least has thus far. He stumbles across some problem. He designs an elegant if ruthless solution to said problem, and leaves everything in a state of equilibrium while he wanders off for a few thousand years to solve other problems. Then som...

Lost Odyssey is an absolutely amazing game.

Re: The General Magic: The Gathering Thread

If you're not restricted by standard, may I recommend Boldwyr Heavyweights. Sure, they don't HAVE to search, but you have an 8/8 trample for 4 with no downside. It almost becomes a question of whether they want the 10 off of Ob or to take lots from the Heavys every turn.
