Re: Predictions for eldritch moon (spoilers?)

The only thing I don't like about the ability is the fact that it uses the backs of both cards. It feels like it's going to needlessly eat up DFC slots, make it significantly harder to achieve in limited (and easier to be hated on), and it'll make board state more awkward.

Re: The General Magic: The Gathering Thread

Can someone explain to me why the Remand effect is good? Maybe it is because I am new, but isn't it better to simply counter the spell than to bounce it and have them cast it again next turn? Do you mean the new one, or Remand itself? Remand itself is mostly used to Time Walk an opponent in the ear...

Re: LoadingReadyLIVE [the show, not the channel]

There's only one thing that's slightly bothered me so far. I'm not sure how well the "This is Live, and something's gonna happen" slogan works. It didn't seem to work in the second episode. But that felt like it was due to the fact Beej had to rush it out. I felt it didn't work in third ep...

Re: Gaming General Chat Thread

I just finished two games I bought less than three hours ago. The first was Pony Island. It was a pretty neat little game. The gameplay itself wasn't extraordinary. But it managed to be clever enough in terms of execution to remain fun. I actually kind of felt bad for the devil after reading some of...

Re: Crossing the Streams

So, on the subject of the last CtS, I will say it was a lot of fun. I really enjoyed Drawful and Quiplash. I wasn't as big of a fan of Fibbage. One of the reasons I really enjoyed Quiplash and, from how it seemed, Drawful was the fact I mattered. The fact we were able to affect the outcome made them...

Give them a bath, put out fliers looking for it's owner, and maybe feed it some treats. If you can't find it's owner, you can be the proud owner of a Scotland.

Re: I think I've figured out what Eldritch Moon is about!

I understand that. But I doubt that all of the people of Innistrad effected by her influence know to refer to Emrakul as a she when that's what was given by the people of Zendikar. Unless Nahiri has been -very- busy talking her up all over the plane, though I don't think that would explain why Bruna...

Re: I think I've figured out what Eldritch Moon is about!

True. And like I said, the actual reason is likely because 'she' reads a lot better than 'it' in the stories. I'm pretty sure that Eldrazi don't actually have a physical gender. It's because of that that I found it interesting Emrakul would be able to seemingly choose what to go by. Which might mean...

Re: I think I've figured out what Eldritch Moon is about!

She was always referred to as female, but realistically we don't know if Eldrazi have a gender or not. As far as I'm aware she was always referred to as female due to being worshipped as Emeria. But I think this is the first time that we can infer she considers to herself as female as well. That is,...

Re: I think I've figured out what Eldritch Moon is about!

I agree that it reads fine as Jace solving a mystery. But I also think WotC wanted to keep an air of mystery for the players to keep it more interesting/talked about. Which worked... though not necessarily as a positive for some players. On another note, there's something I just realized about the r...

Re: I think I've figured out what Eldritch Moon is about!

To be fair, I also kind of enjoyed the speculation. It's just kind of a letdown to see a mystery get solved by the easiest solution of them all. Here's the thing, it was the easiest solution because almost all of the evidence pointed to it. Beyond Thing in the Ice (which is a fairly common referenc...

Re: I think I've figured out what Eldritch Moon is about!

To be fair, a lot of the more invested players knew it was likely Emrakul. But I don't think it was as obvious to newer/more casual players. Plus there was some room for doubt that lead to interesting theories. And honestly, I wouldn't have been as sure if not for the evidence I saw while checking o...

Here's the decklist I was talking about. I guess I was overstating a bit when I mentioned Kathleen's Angry Kitties deck. I just rewatched the first video about Magic and remembered going "T1 Steppe Lynx" and having opponent visibly give up.

Feel like posting the list? Id love to see it.


I'll work on getting a list up later tonight.

I feel like Lili getting an Oath is 100% sure thing, personally. She's the face of the set, she's going to be battling an Eldrazi, and the Gatewatch are coming to Innistrad. It's pretty much certain she'll be joining, and they've said anyone who joins gets an Oath. Personally, I just want more werew...

Personally, I thought the Noon, bathroom, and the entire first-person segment and follow through were strong. As for the ending, I thought it felt a little wonky.

Watching this helps me understand what it's like for non-Magic players to watch Friday Nights. I thought it had it's funny moments and overall enjoyed it.
