    posted a message on Universal Studios signs deal with Hasbro
    I bet that if this comes true, they'll make a new story with 5 new characters each associated to the color pie.

    "coming soon on a theater near you: Magic the Gathering Core Movie!"

    And when it's about to be released Wizards will have a special set outside of the normal ones that'll be able to be used in standard featuring all the spells/characters in the movie.


    That's just my guess though :p

    posted a message on RaresDrafting...?
    This method is very known throughout the magic community. It is in my opinion the most fair way to draft.

    If you don't like the placing/distribution of rares thing you can just shuffle all the rares, uncommons and commons in piles and everybody (by order of who won) takes a facedown card from these piles until there is no card left.

    It's just random and even if you didn't get a top place you get a chance at great rares. the justice behind this kind of pick is debatable though.

    The riddle refers to the fact that people must stand inside the wall of hope to be protected which is a means of imprisonment and at the same time safety.

    Besides that I don't think that there's an answer for that.


    You could always try asking that on Ask Wizards :p

    It's difficult to beat an art like the one in the original damnation, it's iconic. But if this really is the textless foil damnation it really lacks something. It's a too bland image.

    That's the same as saying a kid shouldn't be excited over Christmas presents because he doesn't know what they are.


    It's a natural human reaction, excitement over the new and unknown.

    posted a message on [LOR] "Game Buyer" magazine confirms Planeswalker
    Quote from Thrawnkkar
    They can be alot of things, from new Frames for Legends to the Tribes in a Tribal theme to Planeswalkers, the Poster only confirms that something is coming in October.

    Hell, it doesnt even mention Lorwyn, it could be some strange mini product for al we know.



    True, except it isn't new card frames because it was assured on an article (I think by Mark Rosewater) that the 8th edition card frames were to be for a long time (this was about the rumors that Planar Chaos and Future Sight generated).

    It could be tribes (and there's no doubt about the tribal theme present in Lorwyn), but showing Liliana Vess points that the they which are coming is something more like a character type.

    October is when Lorwyn comes out, so no doubts there that what is coming is Lorwyn related.

    One thing is to be cautious of all the information obtained, other is purely ignoring a collection of facts that when put together point at a very precise direction.

    It's true he had better comics in the past but some are still good nowadays, and this comic is one example. It's right to the point with all that futureshifted pre-print crap (and I'm not saying I didn't like the timeshifted cards).

    The most important part is to not overwhelm the new players, teach them the basics and give them time, the questions will arise in a timely fashion and you an increasingly explain more and more.

    I had a guy trying to teach me Vampire some months ago, and even though I didn't like the game, the way he explained it didn't help either, he was trying to stuff the rulebook in my head.

    Quote from /agentORANGE
    But if you find a new addiction (such as gameboy), you may never come back.


    Actually I had gotten a PSP just before I started playing magic again recently (Planar Chaos). It's accumulating dust on the shelf because i don't use it.

    I like videogames, but nothing can surpass that person to person interaction while playing a game. There's MMO's and other online games, but nothing beats seeing your opponent/teammate's reactions.

    It's sad to see so many Magic players take that interaction as granted, to a level that makes them ignore completely about the social aspect of this game.

    I know a lot of people who quit because they didn't like the way certain players treated them, and went on to play other games.

    posted a message on Skyshroud Forest still alive?
    Quote from knefrod
    It would've been allright if it was at the coast. But looking at the aforementioned Skyshroud Blessing, it very clearly depicts Skyshroud Forest in the midst of the mountains.
    I really pity those trees, they would've died within a years time without the vast stretch of water that supported them. But yet they do, because they're still around in the Time Spiral block.
    So, is there a clear explanation for this?


    In order for Skyshroud to survive, Freyalise kept pumping a lot of mana into the Forest, so that's why the trees survived, even though they were in the middle of Keldon mountains. It is mentioned somewhere along the books that the forest could not survive long without her.

    So that's your explanation.

    Quote from Remus Shepherd
    It's just a thought, but...if Wizards is giving out preview cards to magazines, they're not above giving out *false* preview cards, to spoil the spoilers. Smile If they haven't started doing that yet, I expect it any day now. WotC sees themselves in a war with MTGS, and there are a lot of weapons they haven't yet unsheathed.



    I understand why wizards tries to hide the spoilers and stuff, it's like if you were a movie producer and some guys were around the net posting each frame of the movie as it was being completed.

    I like getting spoiled on magic cards, but I understand Wizards' position.

    But i wouldn't go as far as to say they would provide fake info to magazines, it just stains their reputation and that makes the game look bad, and if the game looks bad some players start going away.

    There are lots of games out there and Wizards' can't risk getting a bad reputation just to make people who like spoilers unhappy (and these are also their costumers).

    Edit: CoJoeTheLawyer got to the point quicker than me.

    posted a message on Make the CardType - PLANESWALKER
    I just hope they're nothing like vanguard cards, I completely hate vanguard cards, they can give you an unbeatable advantage even without you spending a single mana or even without playing a turn.

    I like the concept that all mages start with the same conditions and then go from there to victory, if everyone starts the game with more than 20 life, 10 cards in hand, or some cool ability right from the start, it's not very balanced.

    Also, about the specific Planeswalker cards, I hope that doesn't prove right, part of what makes magic so great is that you can mix cards in any way you like, sort of like lego. What if lego started to produce pieces that only fit with that singular collection? It would always feel like you were being isolated from something bigger.

    Some of the ideas you proposed are cool though.

    After further analysis, all the knights stopped in front of the wall of fire make the card seem like an obstacle, a "wall".

    This seems like an especially full of flavor set. I miss the days when Magic had some sort of mysticism (maybe it was because I was younger...), that this set seems to want to bring back.

    Quote from Zaphod
    I don't think multicolor belongs in the core set. It's something for the expansions. There's always been a difference between the core sets and the expansions, and I think that Wizards has already "ruined" that difference enough by bringing legends into the core set.


    The core set is a standard as well as a learning set for newer players, if Wizards keeps most of the stuff out of the core set how will newer players ever learn?


    And I really should think everyone should stop calling the newer players "dumb", most of the people I taught to play I taught with advanced sets and not core sets. why? Because the core set was too weak in power level and too stripped of mechanics, it just makes the game uninteresting, not easier to play.

    Quote from Mistwalker
    In the first pic, is the skull on the far left a Sliver skull?


    I was wondering the same thing. It sure seems like it, if so, unless Lorwyn has slivers, this must be something core (assuming slivers are in core? Oo).

    The creature behind the girl also appears to be a Kavu. So I'm guessing this card is from Xth.

    The art is very reminiscent from Fecundity, I'm guessing its not a creature, because as someone said the focus is on the spell being cast and not the girl or the kavu.

    I am a DCI collector and I must say that the art quality seems to scale with the production amount of the card. Like the judge cards all have nice art where as the gateway large production art is not as impressive.


    I have to disagree with that, just check Pernicious Deed, although the Promo art is very nice, I find the original art much more evocative of the card's mood.

    I guess these thing enter the realm of personal taste a little bit.

    When I win, if I feel the person is not experienced and is receptive to advice, I try to show them things they did wrong and what they can correct in their play and in their decks.

    If they aren't total schmucks they'll learn a bit and thank you for it the next time they see you.

    True, maybe it's just the stigma, that when you see a promo you're expecting art at least as the original, and then you see something you don't like and it takes all the joy of having that particular promo.

    I always say: "Good game", if it wasn't, it's common courtesy.

    The only time where I refrain from saying it is when my opponent is mana screw and then I'll say: "Better luck next time with the mana".

    Sometimes I'll even say I'm sorry when I win because of mana issues, but I think that's just me being dumb XD

    Is it just me, or does anyone share the opinion that alternate art promos usually have art that's not as interesting as the original?

    I love the original art on Korlash, but the Pre Release Promo art... I think it sucks (yeah I know it was meant to emulate Dakkon art, but still...)

    I was strolling around the forums and found an Yixlid Jailer as a DCI promo, and the art is much more dull than the original one.

    I'm sure there are exceptions (one being the alternate art Wrath of God by Ron spencer), but it seems a price to pay that being shiny, makes a card lose great art.

    If you think the amount of people that link to cards in gatherer everyday (making them burn their bandwidth a lot) it's not a surprise, as the owner of a site I completely understand the reasons.

    That said, google ads are the worst ads ever, they started by being good targeted ads, now they're just random stuff thrown there, any slightest keyword match will trigger ads that have nothing to do with the webpage, and if it's an image based site it just won't work.


    The good part is that the ads are mostly unobtrusive.

    "You gain 2 life for each Green mana symbol in those cards mana costs."

    The symbols only count if they're in the mana cost. No worries there.

    It's only logical that enchantments can tap, I always wondered why they didn't. Tapping means you exhaust a resource, so you just exhausted that enchantment for the turn (unless you can untap it of course). I like it.

    Try to see if your group is willing to pick rares in the end of the draft (you get the rares all in a pile and then choose them, it's a bit more fair to everyone, if a little time consuming), that way everyone can draft for the matches and then will know that the rares will be evenly distributed.

    posted a message on Obscenity
    What I find most funny is that porn is always getting attention to be banned or restricted, but violence doesn't share that stigma.

    So violence is ok, sex is not ok.

    About obscenities, well young people will always hear them, they're around and sooner or later someone will hear it and spread it with their friends. Being "forbidden" just makes it all more pleasant to use.

    If you think at the core of it all most obscenities are just silly crap, I can't find myself offended for any kind of obscenity, every bad word they can throw at you is just so silly.

    Of course children will eventually learn (through their fathers or by themselves) that those words won't get them anywhere.

    posted a message on Laptop Question
    Quote from The Descent
    a mac would be clearly the best choice.
    if you want a laptop that runs windows i suggets the Acer Aspire 5650, but is way too costy if you don't have plans to play at high levels.
    I'm uninformed about macintosh laptops, but I know that are the best you can buy if you want to play music and use graphic programs, for sure.

    and, btw, don't EVER BUY A LAPTOP with VISTA unless you have 2gb ram. It would be totally useless and slow.

    Do you want my opinion? Don't buy Vista. At least not now.



    I have a laptop with 1 GiB RAM and an integrated ATI graphics board and vista runs smoothly, in fact it runs even better than with XP and with Aero on. In fact I had a friend who installed it in his 512 MiB Ram laptop (his graphics card is dedicated), it ran a little slow with more heavy programs that relied on processing power, but nothing much.

    I wouldn't suggest Macs, they run into a lot of problems, due to the parts that aren't as reliable as they were in the past. (Flame me if you want macboys, it's the truth).

    Edit: Beware! Silvery laptops and scratches are mortal enemies Frown

    I didn't really understand Scenario 1, but about:

    Scenario 2: You can't play the shock, a player does not gain priority while a spell or ability is resolving, meaning you can't play anything between drawing the card and discarding it.

    Scenario 3: As above, the ability is still resolving when you reveal the card, so you cannot play the healing leaves (or other card for that matter) between revealing the healing leaves and discarding it (because it isn't a land).


    Hope I was helpful Wink

    Quote from HairyMezican
    What do you need another card to win for?

    Intruder Alarm on my turn (or some other way to make Sprout Swarm pay for itself)
    EOT your turn, Sprout Swarm with buyback x20
    My turn attack!

    Of course this has been stated a few times already during the thread, but
    I don't know why I'd expect you to actually read through the thread before posting.



    I actually had read the thread before any posts that had it, but could only answer to it later, but I only saw intruder alarm + sprout swarm and two turns to win on a combo is not exactly the best of things, that's why I was thinking about an instant win condition as soon as the combo got off, perhaps grapeshot or pandemonium or even brain freeze. And I was thinking I could actually search for those cards if I had some birds or elves on the table and a Psychotrope Thallid so you could draw your deck in search of the win card.

    If you leave your creatures to attack it is uncertain if you win, unless you're fully loaded with counters or something to disrupt possible answers.

    I don't play as much magic as I'd like to, because of my lack of time and money (damn my studies!!!)

    I have started a magic comic lately so I can compensate the fact that I don't play much, kinda weird I know, but it works for me XD The link is in my sig if you want to see it.

    Oh, I'm more of a limited man, I don't actually play constructed that much, though I like to play both.


    Well, hope to talk to ya soon Smile
