  • posted a message on Can I use different sleeve colors?
    Nope this is not acceptable in any tournament. I doubt many people would even allow it at kitchen table level magic. If you are going to use sleeves, then all sleeves must be identical, the same type/colour/art.
    Even if you say that you haven't memorized what cards in your deck are in what sleeves, a judge has no way to verify this. And they won't just take your word for it. As any difference in the sleeves gives you a potential advantage to know what you might be drawing next.

    So go out and get some more sleeves.

    Lets say my opponent gets up to get a snack like a soda, could I hide entirely normal armchair underneath one of their cards?


    Last time I checked, underneath your chair isn't "on the battlefield", unless you are actually playing under the table (I'm looking at you Enter the Dungeon).
    And since you have to hide the Armchair "on the battlefield", that would be a no go.
    Not my chair, their cards. Laughing


    Wow.... guess it is later here then I thought. Or I just have "chairs" on my mind... I wonder why?
    But yeah hiding it under your opponents cards should be fine, since there is only the one battlefield. But probably easier for your opponent to find.

    So... With Ol' Buzzbark on the stack, can I just take all my cards and move them entirely from the room? Or put them on other cards in order to get an advantage? Seems... Not fun.


    Yeah you can certainly move your stuff.
    If you couldn't then it would have to have "Just a Second", like the Insect Wrestler, Slaying Mantis. So you can move them. Would say that you probably have to leave them on the battlefield though.
    So you could spread them out, or bunch them all together. But once the ability goes to resolve and dice start rolling, it's got to be hands off.

    So, you just put it underneath one of your lands?


    Try to slip it under your lands while your opponent isn't looking.
    Try to put it down along with a creature you cast on your turn.
    Adjust your cards to attack, and try to sleight of hand it into play.

    There are lots of interesting way to try and get onto the battlefield. And even if your opponent does spot it, all they can do is put it back into your hand. Unless they want to waste a Naturalize effect on it.

    Just spoiled by LRR on their Desert Bus for Hope stream.

    Sweet fun card. Reminiscent of Cheaty Face. It's a normal chair, honest. I've always had it.

    Took me a couple reads of Ol'Buzzbark to fully understand it, but that actually looks like a lot of fun.

    Garbage Elemental? Hmm, just how many wordy creature will there be. If there are a lot, this could end up as a basically a 4/4 unblockable.

    Hmm interesting protective wear.
    I just love that a proper coat like this stops the Adorable Kitten (and all it's augmented hybrids) from scratching you.

    Now I'm some what disappointed that the draft my local LGS has planned is for the Saturday, during the day. Guess I gotta hope for bad weather, so it is dark outside.

    Still a fun and cool Vampyre.

    Goes infinite with Crackdown Construct. Just takes one copy, anywhere in your deck/hand/graveyard to boot. That's gotta be a super casual super combo worth building around. ...Right?


    Or it gets abused in a peasant cube where Crackdown is already pretty good


    I guess this is why we can't have nice things, right? Design spends ages working on new and interesting things only to have degenerates reverse engineer them into WMDs an hour after they're revealed. Frown


    Not to be that guy, but this will only "go infinite" with Crackdown Construct while both are on the battlefield.
    Note that the Crackdown Construct triggers when you activate the ability of an Artifacts or Creatures. The Shellephant is only a Creature while on the battlefield, everywhere else it is a Creature CARD, not the same thing.

    Just saw the creature type was a turtle and/or an elephant. So it switches between a 1/4 Horned Turtle or a 3/3 Elephant token.

    I like the idea of just having this in your deck and going, "In response pay 0, the Elephant in my library/graveyard/my hand is now a Turtle". Probably best doing it game 2, after your opponent already knows you have one.

    What happens when you sacrifice the creature in response?
    Does the spell fizzle because no legal targets or do all 4 damage "trample" over onto the controller of that creature?


    That's a good question, but I would assume that the spell would act in the same way a Trampling creature would: all damage goes to the player. Otherwise, why call it Trample? Wink


    Your assumption would be incorrect though.
    This spell only has one target, the creature. So if that is gone by the time the spell goes to resolve, then the spell will fizzle for lack of legal targets. And do nothing.

    This seems really nice.
    Four damage for three mana at instant speed. And if you kill a small utility guy you get to deal the rest to your opponent. That just seems useful.

    Love the name too. Just like, "Hey come over here and check out my Super-Duper Death Ray, it's a killer".

  • posted a message on Extremely Slow Zombie and Three-Headed Goblin - Last Strike and Triple Strike!
    Oh I like that Three-Headed Goblin. Triple the heads, triple the damage, triple the fun.

    And a 3/3 for two, that has last strike. That doesn't seem that bad really.

    The more they reveal of this set, the more fun it is looking at the moment.

    Edit - Hey MysticLeviathan, what is the source for these two cards?

  • posted a message on How many instants during combat can I cast?
    Please remember to use card tags:
    Mutagenic Growth
    Temur Battle Rage
    Apostle's Blessing

    Yes this is perfectly legal.
    As long as you have the mana/resources to cast the instants, you can cast as many as you want.

    A step or phase doesn't move on to the next one until both players pass priority while the stack is empty. So you can cast each spell resolve one at a time, or cast them all at once if you want.

    Hope that helps.
