Every week, James and Graham draft Magic: the Gathering Online, and occasionally succeed! Although, when the goal is entertainment over good play, it really seems more like they always succeed. Hop in the chat and tell us what to pick.
Post any comments or questions about the LRRMtG live stream.

A little bird told me you need Button ideas, so on the off chance you read this thread.
DEAL WITH IT!! (please don't deal with it)

Maybe he wont see the line.
"We lose, he saw the line"

This probably isn't the best place for button suggestions but really there is only one slogan that is worthy of the next button and that slogan is "Fart Pie"

"oh god, why his he playing spells. Graham I'm scared."
Posted: 18 Feb 2014, 20:32
I think "Why is he playing spells" is a good one.

It's not about damage, it's about sending a message.
Big meaty beats.
BEAR FORCE ONE
Get in the bag.
A circus of value!

I think 3-6 are a little past their prime.
The second one is good but a little weird.
The first one is really good, but hard to fit on a button I think.

I suppose you could do just one or the other.
"It's not about damage."
"It's about sending a message."

You know what I really want to see in a WackyDraft before Theros is done?
Goal: resolve as many situations from Greek Mythology as possible (e.g. Chained to the Rocks on Titan of Eternal Fire).

I just watched the Trip born of the gods from last thursday. Graham, your K-pop knowledge is crazy.
I dont mean "wow, you understand a lot about this" but that you present it in such a way as "everyone is super into K-pop and these are some tidbits you might not know"
You present it in the same way as Impetuous Sunchaser V Icarus. You just start from the assumption that everyone already has a understanding of not just K-pop but of that Girls generation song and then go from there, its crazy.

I take that as a compliment. I think
Posted: 26 Feb 2014, 06:45
It was a compliment, I love when people have a interest that they are passionate about, so passionate that they are willing to drill down 7 layers beyond bedrock to find something new.
For example, Han solo's pants are wrong for the character in one of the movies.
Down the side of his pants is a stripe of piping, those are known as "Correlian blood stripes" There are two levels, yellow, or second class which is the equivalent of a US military Cross (Army Distinguished Service Cross, Navy Cross, Airforce Cross) or a Conspicuous Gallantry Cross for the British. and Red which is a first class or higher award, equivalent of a Medal of Honor or a Victoria Cross. Correlian Blood Stripes are awarded to someone who after seeing that a situation was "unwinnable/unsurvivable" made the choice to take action anyways willingly forfeiting their life to perform a unperformable feat of heroics, as such it is extremely rare for them to be awarded to anyone still living. There have been less than 10 people to be awarded both sets in correlian history. It is legal for any correlian to kill someone who wears blood stripes without having earned them.
All that being said, at one point Han is wearing green blood stripes.

New button: "We're not ACTIVELY losing..."

Just wanted to say that I decided to turn off the stream and hop into the M14 draft you did just on the off chance I got to play against you.
I didn't get to play you, but I did win my first 8-4. So, thanks guys!

Duckay, you had a really good deck. I thought that name sounded familiar.
On a side note, watching the replay now, it's weird seeing my moves from the other side. Weird and kinda cool.

Hey guys, we played last night, it was fun. I had the stream closed and the chat hidden so I didn't catch until now that you were concerned I might have been reading the chat. For the record, I had the chat window shrunk so that only the text box was visible. Ironically, that's why I didn't quit chatting or try to acquit myself when there were complaints/accusations.
If you're wondering, 'Why type in the chat anyway?' Basically, I was hoping to add entertainment value for my fellow viewers. Reviewing the footage, I'm still not sure it wasn't a net benefit, but I guess I should have made sure to clarify things in the MTGO chat. I tried to avoid using it because historically on streams of yours and Kenji's, I've seen it pop up a lot on the stream and slow down the action.
I'm curious how you guys feel about playing against viewers in general. Is running the modern equivalent of an arm-wrestling booth good showbiz? I know it's an awkward conversation since you really can't stop people, but if you prefer to avoid it, then I for one won't show up again.

As far as the second round going to time... yeah, that was entirely on me. I felt kinda bad about taking forever (I ended up losing via timeout), but now watching the replay I guess it wasn't a bad thing after all since it let you play the first round of that 3x JOU. So uh, sorry about that, and also you're welcome I guess?
As far as the chat controversy is concerned, I think it's probably a better idea to stick with in-game chatting if you really want to be interactive. Yes it slows things down a little bit, but I consider it common courtesy to stay as far away from the stream as I can if there's even a chance I might be playing the streamer. It's just too suspicious to be in the stream chat.

Most importantly, I'm not bothered.
That said, I'd rather in-game chat, because it's weird to other viewers that you're "not watching", but still chatting with them. In any case, no worries!

Sweet. Glad to hear it.

So Deathjavu wanted to see this sweet pic that Mangledpixel did:
Posted: 04 Jul 2014, 15:06
Thanks, I couldn't open the link on my phone...
and then Graham made it the background, so I got to see it anyway. But here it is in all its full sized, non-obscured-by-Graham's-head glory.
(and it's pretty amazing)

That Cam/Graham match in Vintage was made of all the epic-ness across all the games.
I also love how Graham can actually play a sensible game of magic with the clock ticking down in to the final seconds. And at least this time his opponent didn't open a chat window right at the end!
Edit: And with odd timing, just saw the PAX panel where Graham mentioned playing a skydraft where a bad connection pushed him to time and he won then too! *salute*
