Thanks Korv. Can I bother you for the Complete Rules reference? I'm being called out on this. -_-

Re: Magic the Gathering: Ask a Judge

If something cares about whether I "control an X" where x is "zombie" or "goblin" or "human" etc, and I cast a creature spell of that type, when is the previously mentioned condition fulfilled, as soon as the spell is on the stack (assuming I control it) or on...

Re: The General Magic: The Gathering Thread

Also, Cruise feeds the next Cruise better than Dig feeds the next Dig. How do you figure? If anything it's the opposite since you can only delve 6 cards with Dig but 7 with Cruise. Assuming an equal number of cards in your yard before you cast either, there will be one more card in your yard after ...

If I am at 5, and my opponent is at 5, and I attack with two 5/5s, and my opponent casts Defelecting Palm on one of them, who dies?

Don't ask how.

Re: Kahns prerelease

I did a draft last week and I'll do another this Friday.

The draft went well (2-0-1 split) I felt like "what the hell am I even doing?" the whole time but it seems like the format might be deep enough that you can decide to be in a clan and get there.

I like to imagine all the historians trying to invent explanations for the making out statues, about them being metaphors for the way in which the war between the states of those rulers bound them together or something.

Question a friend asked me:

If I exile a morph card with an effect like Villainous Wealth, can I play it as a Morph, or may I only play it face up?

Chandra is a criminal pyromaniac arsonist with oppositional defiant disorder, and Gideon is basically a cop. Their relationship isn't going to be cozy. Personally, I'd have to let him down. "Sorry dude, I don't swing that way." He is a giant fuzzy kitty, which is a point in his favour, bu...

Sorry bro, but I'm already in a committed relationship with Kiora and.... LOOK OUT, GARRUK!

*the rest of the film becomes a Terminator 2 style film as we slowly become friends while evading and eventually defeating Garruk. In the end I help him hook up with Gideon*

Four pre-releases in all. 1st: Abzan. 3-1. 2nd: Abzan. 3-1 3rd: two headed giant with a friend of mine. Jeskai/Sultai cuz that was all that was left. 2-2. 4th: Abzan. 2-2. I really really like Abzan. It's everything I want to be doing all the time. Feels good man. Big stuff. Removal. Card draw. Ench...

Re: The KHAAAAAAAAAAAAANs of Tarkir Spoiler Thread

Abzan for me. I've always been a defensive player and Abzan fits just right. Also, let's discuss the elephant in the room. "Become Immense" is a stupid name for a Giant Growth. It's like someone looked up a dictionary definition and made it a card name. I'm looking forward to the continuat...

I'm not sure how I feel about Khans anymore. On the one hand, limited feels like it'll be good. On the other... everything is feeling dull to me to be completely honest. Maybe it's just because I can't feel joy anymore. I feel like it's just hard to see how things are going to come together in cons...

Re: The KHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANs of Tarkir Spoiler Thread

Man, Mardu Charm is amazing. I'm sad that it absolutely ruins Courser of Kruphix. Spell on top of their library? Duress is away at instant speed in their draw step. Land on top after they draw? Four damage to their courser instead.

Re: The KHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANs of Tarkir Spoiler Thread

I think the extra toughness over those options might be relevant.

In the end, likely not of course but it's still an interesting card. History has shown the power of hyper-efficient equipment.

I'd be totally pumped to see Ugin. I'm also a little interested in Ghostfire Blade for some kind of Modern Infect deck. There are 3 perfectly serviceable main deck colourless infect creatures (Inkmoth Nexus, Ichorclaw Myr, Necropede) and having such a cheap equip might be really useful for a slightl...

I'm excited but less excited than I'd be in a world where I had unhindered finances. A more diverse standard, I'm all for.
