Just like a good filet mignon, what's there is juicy and tasty...
We here at Cranial Insertion do not have access to Santa's mailbag, nor would we ever want it.
In honor of Thanksgiving, I'd just like to point out that not only is "Turkey" not a valid creature type, but "Chicken" is no longer officially recognized either.
Remember, remember the Fifth of - oh, forget the Fifth, it's time for Cranial Insertion! Moko > Guy Fawkes.
The Lorwyn questions continue in what has been one of the most active weeks for the cranial.
In the Magic rules system, some questions are considered especially heinous.
This week was a strange one for the cranial.
It's been quite the week for us here at CI.
Poor Eye of the Storm.
I'll bet Juliet never thought a dagger's ability to stab could sometimes be removed only if she had a little humility!
Before we jump into this week's article full of questions from the cranial.
Cranial Insertion returns with flashbacks, wiffleball bats, color-changing sunglasses, no Stuffy Doll (!) and no delay!
Well, maybe something about Delay.
This week's Cranial Insertion marks the return of the artifact creature that just won't seem to go away, a non-Magical artifact creature telling meandering stories of pre-Sixth Edition rules, and a far less wordy Giant Spider.

Apologies to Moko for the title.

There have been many questions about split second and morph floating about various Magic-related message boards and the cranial.
The CompRules Police sent me out on yet another strange case.
While Time Spiral won't revolutionize Vintage either, what it will do is provide a small set of new cards that may re-energize some older archetypes and cause unique problems for some of the most commonly played decks.
Are you lazy? Do you hate having to activate or cast things to have fun?
As a plainclothes detective for the CompRules Police Department, I always get the strange cases: boats with priority shipments colliding in midstream, guys on horses changing allegiance in the middle of a combat zone.
In the midst of Ravnica block, which has had less impact on Vintage so far than the two blocks preceding it, Wizards of the Coast announced the third set in the long-passed Ice Age block: Coldsnap.
Overall, though, the outlook for Ravnica block has looked weak in comparison to the multiple deck types spawned from the Mirrodin and Kamigawa blocks.
Besides the rules to which all constructed formats are bound, one law of the land prevents Vintage decks from descending into anarchy: the restricted list.
With the results of the most recent major Vintage tournament already in, the format is in a state of flux.
