Re: Well e3 just lost its televsion deal

People actually care about G4? I still hold a grudge from them effectively destroying TechTV.

Re: Magic: The Gathering: Whatcha mean, there's no thread yet?

So, apparently, even Wizards is getting into cross-promotions with TF2. Pre-ordering Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012 on Steam gets you a couple of Magic-inspired hats. Tempting, but I want a Grave Titan for my decks, and that's the promo with the 360 version.

Re: E3 2011: Predictions, Pre/Post Discussion and More!!

So, I tuned in for part of the livestream, and wow... I have never been so underwhelmed by a Tim Schafer game. That looks... urgh. Kinect is an impressive piece of tech, as all the clever Kinect hacks have proven, but as a gaming device... I just don't see it.

Okay, my next EDH deck will be built around Mimeoplasm. I don't care that I have U/G and mono-black EDH deck. Mimeoplasm touches me in all the right ways.

Terraria: It's like 2D Minecraft, seasoned with Metroid.

You know how it goes: game gets massively popular, people rush in to copy it to make a quick buck. It happened with Mario. It happened with Doom. And now it's happening to Minecraft. But there's one Minecraft "inspired" game that's been making the rounds that caught my interest. It's calle...

Re: Magic: The Gathering: Whatcha mean, there's no thread yet?

I've determined that the Metamorph is officially awesome. Your poor opponent spends all game getting out a bomb, and then you copy if for 3. And then drop a few -1/-1 counters on their version with a Grim Affliction. :mrgreen: (And then get yours wiped out by a Parasitic Implant. Bastards. :x ) Oh ...

Re: Magic: The Gathering: Whatcha mean, there's no thread yet?

So, the theme of the prerelease was that I had a deck filled with disgusting bombs and everyone kept using them against me. Praetor's Grasp, Phyrexian Metamorph, Enslave, Karn... it was just non-stop. I hated facing down my own Phyrexian Obliterator or my Wormcoil Engine. (The Wormcoil Engine was th...

So, the prerelease is coming up, and already, I've been brainstorming deck ideas.

But I saw the one on Wiza...

Since New Phyrexia leaked, Wizards has acknowledged it and responded by posting the whole set on their site (because why not make sure they get the hits?). With that in mind, what cards from the next set have you the most excited?
