Re: The Limited thread

So, on Sunday, I went to a PPTQ. Didn't do too hot. Went 3-3, when I needed to go 4-2 for prizes and to have a shot at top 8. But I thought I built the best deck I could with the pool I got . Red had my only bomb, but with 5 playables I couldn't be bothered. The remaining colors were fine, and I had...

Re: Civ V Multiplayer

I'd be totally open for this. Admittedly, I've been avoiding my copy of Civ 5 because I find the game as addictive as crack cocaine. But I'm certainly interested in trying out the multiplayer.

Re: Vorthos Story Corner: Battle for Zendikar

Wizards was pretty upfront during the SDCC panel that Lili isn't getting involved in the BFZ plot line. The rest of the Origins 5 will be, though. So, somehow Chandra's going to get roped up in this thing. (As is Nissa. But she's a native and responsible for the whole mess, so not unexpected.)

Re: Standard Discussion

So, I don't do standard. But I've heard Esper Dergerns is a thing. Can someone tell me why SunScorch Reagent isn't worth any money? I pulled one the other day and got a price check on it, and it's a random 50c rare. Seems to me like any deck running heavy white, and all dragons would enjoy a dragon...

Re: The Limited thread

You know how the story goes that the deck you have to watch out for in most cube drafts is the Mono-Red deck, and that only a complete monster would draft such a deck? I am that complete monster. http://i.imgur.com/ESjQg1F.png 3-0 with this isn't impressive, but match 2 was at least interesting. He ...

Re: Standard Pauper Rotisserie Draft - Draft is in session

So, just a random idea to speed things up if its okay with everyone: at around pick 23 or so, we start taking cards two at a time. I noticed that the Limited Resources subreddit was doing a roto of their cube, and they had this implemented to speed things up. I'm sure we all have good ideas what our...

Re: Spoiler Season: Magic Origins

I remember Gaea's Revenge fondly. Have it in my Mimeo EDH. Terrific and scary beater. Surprised it dropped in rarity from M11. Might grab another for my Karametra EDH, since it's rare now.

Re: The Limited thread

I love Modern Masters draft. Been doing really well with it, and will be sad when it's gone. Drafted the nuttiest R/B aggro deck recently: http://i.imgur.com/TGQhcgY.png I was surprised to see a P2P5 Burst Lightning and a P3P12(!) Daggerclaw Imp. No, seriously. Why? Well, judging by my 3 matches, ev...

I'm fine with that. Though we certainly know what we're drafting. (Or maybe want to draft a transformational sideboard.)

Re: Spoiler Season: Magic Origins

Although we will be visiting Lorwyn specifically, it's my understanding that by the end of that block, Lorwyn and Shadowmoor "fused" together and doesn't change anymore. Indeed, though At the BEGINNING of Lorwyn block we saw the Lorwyn 5 planeswalkers all introduced together as fully form...

Re: Spoiler Season: Magic Origins

So it's been mentioned that each plane in Origins will be represented by a color pair. As of right now, it looks like Ravnica is G/U, Zendikar is R/G, and Regatha is R/B. I have a sneaking suspicion that Lorwyn's color combo is G/W, since that's the color combo of elves, and Lorwyn was Nissa's firs...

Re: Standard Pauper Rotisserie Draft - Draft is in session

Thanks for that. This has gone above and beyond what I was expecting. Hopefully, we can make a template out of this for future roto drafts. (Ours, or others.)

Re: TTC 89 - GP Vegas Report

Wait, THAT'S what Goyfgate was about!? The fact that a pro in the Top 8 is just like everyone else and picks a foiled Goyf because it's worth a lot? I thought it would be something with the new packaging. This just sounds silly. Yeah, Maynard kind of described it in his article as, "There are ...

Re: Standard Pauper Rotisserie Draft - Draft is in session

Yeah, I feel it's fair to force Duckay to make a swap from the current pool. Getting two picks is pretty big, but he essentially passed on his 10th pick. I'm not sure if this will balance well, but we'll see. Alternately, we could restart the snake from Duckay's spot. But that might make things too ...

I will say that I do find the fact that people are throwing up nicknames for the cards they pick amusing. No comment on the Mox, though.

Look. Like I said, I have patience problems. I'm sorry. It felt like we were making good time, then a bit of a road block. Just felt a bit jarring. Honestly, I should be used to that.

Paging Mr. phlip. Mr. phlip. Please report to the draft.

(I'm sorry, guys. I think I jinxed that whole "reasonable clip" thing.)

(I'll admit I have patience problems. Even though I was the one who suggested "at your own pace". That seems to bite me in the butt.)
