Re: Agents of SHIELD: Whadidyathink?

obviously they cant make superheros the focus if its about the agents but it will still need some superheroes popping up from time to time and yeah, if they don't throw mockingbird in there they are idiots. such a perfect fit.

Re: Agents of SHIELD: Whadidyathink?

Having said that most of my enjoyment is down to Agent Coulson - the others would definitely not be able to carry the series on their own. Coulson is great as expected and i genuinely want to know May's back story but the rest of the characters are terrible. i am kind of hoping they threw the Fury ...

Re: Agents of SHIELD: Whadidyathink?

really enjoyed the first episode but the second was dire. for a start Skye is a terrible character and is a giant cliche and setting up the double cross just makes it worse. everything about the 2nd ep was so badly written. the new girl on the team who is not trusted saves the day. the old flame reu...

Re: The General Magic: The Gathering Thread

i have been testing some lists with the bow and its a fun card and i def have gotten some ppl with it, the combo with pulokranos is nice. but you need to run at least 3 of them cos you want it early but its such a bad card to draw multiples of. if you have 1 in play then drawing another 1 is a dead ...

Re: The General Magic: The Gathering Thread

yeah the bow was spoiled before the scry lands and i expected the duals to be much better. fixing needs to be better , as you say, to make it a viable deck.

Re: The General Magic: The Gathering Thread

You know what I just remembered? Frontline Medic + Bow of Nylea seems pretty nuts. You get to swing in with a bunch of deathtouch indestructible creatures every turn, with a way to make them bigger or keep your life total up. the first thing i thought of when the bow was spoiled was. bow + bomber c...

Re: The General Magic: The Gathering Thread

picked white for PR. got a second celestial archon and Heliod so def played white. went with green as also pulled a fleecemane lion. and it was a disaster. i had no cheap creatures and my curve was very high. mostly 4 and 5 drops so ran 18 land and never made it past 5 land all day and in most games...

Re: The General Magic: The Gathering Thread

wow i already liked Reaper of the wilds but from testing i can easily say this is one of the theros all stars. the tricky bit is like aetherling you never want to play it with just 4 mana open. you need the 6 to activate hexproof. great blocker. great attacker and the 5 toughness means not even over...

Re: The General Magic: The Gathering Thread

yeah thats nice. i think scry could be quite powerful. the scry lands in particular will help a card like domri hit on his plus 1. i.e. scry away non creature cards.
will also be nice with erebos so you know what you are drawing with his ability.

i am really excited to start playing around with it.

Re: The General Magic: The Gathering Thread

My only real issue with it is that it's going to be easy to remove. yeah thats the other reason i dont like it, everyone will be maindecking enchantment hate now so there will be games when you play this and it gets removed before you can use the ability. boon is nice but i just dont see it getting...

Re: The General Magic: The Gathering Thread

i am glad they at least made it enter the battlefield + dies instead of enters + leaves the battlefield.

its going to be a nightmare card for some decks to deal with.

Re: The General Magic: The Gathering Thread

ashen rider + rescue from the underworld is going to be absurd. hero's downfall is nice. boon satyr is ok in limited hythonia the cruel might see play if mono black control is competitive. spear of heliod is not amazing. always needing to keep 1WW open will be a hinderance to anything but mono white.

Re: Magic the Gathering: Ask a Judge

but i get priority first after the creature has resolved. so technically he cannot play his removal spell until i declare i am not doing anything more in my main phase, and for example declare moving to combat. he can then say in my main phase doom blade the creature. what he tends to do is once the...

Re: Magic the Gathering: Ask a Judge

can someone settle a dispute i keep having with a guy at my local FNM

during my main phase i cast a creature and it resolves. when does my opponent next get priority to cast a removal spell on the creature. i.e. does he get priority again during my main phase if i don't play anything else.

Re: The General Magic: The Gathering Thread

specifically because m14 limited is quite slow and jace is(usually) a 3 turn clock if an opponent resolves him i am taking Jace. the vampire is never going to wheel because black is strong in the format but i still take jace.

Re: Magic the Gathering: Ask a Judge

pretty sure you can counter with essence scatter. devotion is only checked when it enters the battlefield and if its high enough it enters as a legendary enchantment creature and if not it enters as a legendary enchantment. this is based on the theros mechanics article they did. so while the spell i...

Re: The General Magic: The Gathering Thread

Also, Reaper of the Wilds seems... good. Like, really good. A 4/5 for 4 isn't bad. One mana to give Deathtouch is better. Two mana to give hexproof isn't great, but a nice option to have. i really like that guy too. if you play him on curve you should be able to block profitably with the 5 toughnes...

Re: The General Magic: The Gathering Thread

the one drawback with him is ppl will hold their removal spell until you pay the mana for monstrosity and then play the removal spell in response. timing is key with the monstrosity mechanic
