Re: Standard Discussion

And yet I keep cracking Ulamog and not, say, ANYTHING else. :/

Edit: (Not entirely true. I also cracked a single Kiora. Yay.)

(I've had bad BfZ experiences.)

Re: Standard Discussion

That is the question, and I don't think there is much of an answer. I think Eldrazi aggro abusing Ghostfire Blade is a better budget option. Here is what I came up with. Smoldering Marsh and Exquisite Firecraft can be replaced with Bloodfell Caves and Touch of the Void for budget needs. That's pret...

Re: PAX AUS 2015: Loading Ready Run Fanmeet!

Also on the subject of tourism, are there any events (aside from the concert on Saturday which I am stoked for) that y'all think are not to be missed? I'm pretty bad at going to cons, and usually end up paralyzed with indecision if I don't have someone with a plan nearby to follow. Have you been to...

Hey everyones! Sorry, I meant to chime in on this topic much earlier... I thought I had, but clearly I'm just going senile or something. The good news is, as (probably) guessed, I'm listed under Antitonic's "+1+", so it looks like I'm already accounted for in the surveys and bookings and ...

Re: Standard Discussion

Eldrazi of some sort has been my basic frame of reference; I've already drawn two Ulamog, so it's been the obvious go-to. If anyone has an idea for a decklist, I'd be all ears.

Re: PAX AUS 2015: Loading Ready Run Fanmeet!

The Race That Stops the Nation is no small matter in the Australian psyche. Pretty much every office in the country will have a small party for it; seriously, a LOT of Australia stops for it. It's kind of weird, to be honest!

Re: Standard Discussion

Out of curiosity, has anyone had any luck with a budget brew right now? Standard has somehow wound up being more expensive than Modern, which I don't think should actually be possible.

Re: PAX AUS 2015: Loading Ready Run Fanmeet!

I definitely remember answering Aye to the magic part - Did something get et? edit - Also I definitely prefer to draft, Commander is very not my format and my standard decks tend to be ~40% borrowed from friends the day before events. Ahh! You did. OK, let me recalculate... Right then. Our best bet...

Right now, our Magic crew respondents are (EDIT BECAUSE I FAIL AT READING SURVEY RESULTS) Antitonic Duckay DaMullet EikoandMog JackSlack korvys And maybe Omega Lairon?

Re: PAX AUS 2015: Loading Ready Run Fanmeet!

OK. I'm crunching numbers. For lunch, the odds are REALLY clear. 12 noon - 2pm on Saturday is clear for everyone , which is kinda remarkable. A few people will be just coming out of panels. Korvys and myself will be dashing out to get to Nidhogg. But if we tried to do 12:15-1:15 for lunch, we could ...

Re: Commander/EDH Deck Talk

Thanks! If I had the money I'd get a proper print done so the margins so it wouldn't have the white bars. But failing that, this looks like a computer game box now. I'm very happy about that.
