Re: TTC 100 - PAX Prime 2015 Recap

I think the takeaway from this argument is that any nickname that is a riff on a specific number shouldn't be used, as it only makes people argue about whether it makes sense. Therefore any nickname should avoid referencing any specific number. I propose "laglands".

Darn it Graham, you got it wrong. The nickname for Angel's Tomb is, and always has been, Weeping Angel. That or "Don't Blink". Nissa's Revelation takes place before the Eldrazi were released, Cam. That's what the revelation is; that there are giant monsters trapped in Akoum, making the ent...

Re: Friday Nights: The Long Road

I'm pretty sure that FridayNights-verse Paul needs to find himself some new friends.

Also, real-life Jer might be able to trust his house with the real-life LRR crew, but FridayNights-verse Jer took a massive risk there by just handing over his keys.

Re: TTC 92 - Origins Planeswalkers

I dunno, the impression I always got from WotC was that since players enjoyed dual faced cards once they got a chance to actually play with them, the plan was to revisit DFCs the next time they were appropriate.

Re: TTC 90 - Standard & MM2015 Streamer Event

Dominia is not Dominaria; Dominia is what they used to call the multiverse. (Why yes, it is rather confusing to have two different things with nearly identical names.) Dominia Prime is, I guess, another name for Dominaria. No, Cam, Invasion was the beginning of the Phyrexian invasion. Planeshift was...

Re: TTC 86 - Vorthos Story Time

FYI, the Rathi overlay was the second phase of Yawgmoth's 3-step plan to conquer Dominaria, and is the event that gives the set Planeshift its name. He basically Ctrl-X/Ctrl-V'ed the entire plane of Rath onto Dominaria. And since he had stationed millions of Phyrexian troops in Rath, the overlay mea...

Re: TTC - MM2015 Full Set Reactions

Cam needs to familiarize himself with the rules for divided-damage spells. Each target must be assigned at least 1 damage. So you can only blow up a max of 4 illusions with Pyrotechnics .
