Re: Loading Ready Sealed League

Does anyone have ideas for future leagues? I don't know if adding Origins packs to our pools would make a lot of difference from what we all have now, though I don't know if Origins will play nicely with BFZ either. I almost want to wait for BFZ, do 6-pack sealed of that, then add preferably 3 pack...

Re: Feed Dump 212 - Close Your Eyes in the Pool

Kudos to Ian on the editing for the 5 stages of denial. Great timing! I laughed my butt off.

Dr_Kilinger and I have not been able to connect due to our poorly aligned schedules and prerelease weekend.

Re: Loading Ready Sealed League

OmegaLairon and I had a match already this season during the week of May 31st. Are we truly fated to meet again on the field of battle?

Thanks for the games, Duckay! I loved the intense siege/counter-siege action in Game 3.

Re: Loading Ready Sealed League

abanytar (venerable_bede) 2-0 eltrov

Great games! eltrov's early aggression nearly had me both times, but alas, Silumgar, Captain of the Fun Police, wasn't going to have any of that.

Re: Loading Ready Sealed League

Dix has been unavailable this week, and doesn't have access to MtGO this weekend. He offered me the win in a PM, but I'm fine with a draw.

If only my pool supported a strong Izzet deck, then all I'd have to do is splash black! Sadly, I think one of my dragon friends is going to have to sit on the bench.

Re: Loading Ready Fan Draft.

Here's my first ever 3-0 draft deck! I wasn't sure how it would perform, but Elusive Spellfist did good work. http://i.imgur.com/tr7D9sD.png My favorite moment was using Artful Maneuver on Elusive Spellfist two turns in a row to get through Hosk's wall of beef in order to win round 2.

Re: Loading Ready Sealed League

abanytar (venerable_bede) 1 / 2 Dix (Dixonij)

After taking it in turns to get stuck on mana in games 1 and 2, I lost a proper game of Magic against Palace Siege. Thanks for the games, Dix!

Re: Loading Ready Sealed League

I agree with the idea of everyone adding the same packs to their pools, but let's run a straw poll to efficiently tally the votes.

Re: Loading Ready Sealed League

Any word on the next round? I know we had a week hiatus, which would mean this would be Week 8 of the League. Is the plan to make next week the last match of the season? I ask because I'm looking forward to opening Dromoka and putting her straight into my deck. :)

Re: Loading Ready Fan Draft.

That moment when you have your opponent at 1 life, and all you have to do is make sure you don't sacrifice your Gudul Lurker to their Archfiend of Depravity.

And then you punt.

Abanytar 2 - 1 Omega Lairon Man, that was a good one - never thought I'd get to pull out the Wingmate Roc/Brutal Hordechief combo, but man was it delicious while it lasted. Game 3 mana flood always sucks, but thems the breaks. GGS friendo! GGS, Omega! Glad to witness that beautiful combo, even if I...

Re: The Limited thread

I mean, Alesha's extremely strong, but you shouldn't let one bomb pull you into a weak color. Aha! I get it. There's an amount of self-control needed to not just say, "Stronk rare, better play this color." Regarding Green, I guess my weakness in my knowledge of the format hurt me. How oft...

Re: The Limited thread

Those are, unfortunately, difficult questions for me to answer. I make the judgement call on running fewer than 15 creatures based on roughly how good I feel my noncreature spells are. In this case, I feel like the noncreature spells are strong enough that I could run fewer creatures. And yes, you ...

Re: The Limited thread

I considered UB, but I got scared off by what seemed to me a low number of creatures, and maybe just the concept of the control deck in general. It was easy for me to imagine how the BR deck would play - jam creatures into the red zone, deal damage, ???, profit. For a control deck (like the suggeste...
