    I just wanted to make sure I was in this round, so I entered with the least thoughtful deck that popped into my head.
    Sorry >_<

    1. XXX
    2. 4-1 : On your play, Loxodon can block a tie but not race
    3. 6-0 : Eureka put me at 45 tokens...
    4. 3-3 : On your play, don't block and third turn Chancellor wins.
    5. 4-1 : On your play, turn Iona can block a tie but not race.
    6. 6-0 : I kill you by the time you drop mentor / beast.
    7. 6-0 : I block enough of the swing to survive.

    X 4 6 3 4 6 6 | 28 | 467

    5v1. 0-6. I nearly played this. Bah.
    Unless I'm missing something, you drop Iona on 2nd.
    On your play, you can block a tie.
    Meaning if Iona sits and doesn't swing, I can't swing through.
    I'll hit you for 9, then you block and I only get 6 through, then I get 3 through.
    Of course this means you can't swing, so it's a tie.

    Can I have my nickname changed to Ophidia?

    The name I have now, AAAARG, is made when I was half asleep and having a fever.

    Ophidia is taken within curse, but not on our site.
    So you're account name remains AAAARG, but you have Ophidia as a nickname that will appear on MTGS.

    There's flexibility with core sets, where most of a two block set had one core set, and then ended with another. But this is a pure error:
    6th Standard:
    Seventh Edition, Urza's Saga, Urza's Legacy, Urza's Destiny, Mercadian Masques, Nemesis, Prophecy

    7th Edition was printed 2/3rds of the way though Invasion block.
    This should be Sixth Edition, Urzas...Prophecy.

    I haven't posted yet (before this), but am not thrilled with having an underscore in my user name (sorry, I'm lame like that...). Can I change my username + Curse name to LeakyMana? (I think it's available, but if my username would be different from my Curse name, I'll think of something else.)

    Thanks, and looking forward to starting to post rather than just lurk. Shocked

    I legitimately considered running Sinkhole for a moment.
    It would have hit 320, crossing over the "successfull" threshhold.

    2 Feyd_Ruin : He must have entered before the rules changed
    Leyline of Sanctity

    1. 0-6. You can make a dude and swing a few times.
    2. xxx
    3. 0-6. Bounce my lands.
    4. 0-6. Your gain outraces my head start.
    5. 0-6. Swing
    6. 0-6. Bounce my Land.
    7. 6-0. Helix can't hit me. Hit yourself to discard.. I still started the -1 race.
    8. 0-6. Beasts are beastly.
    9. 6-0. My first upkeep always drains you, yours always doesn't. I start the race.
    0. 6-0. Bolt yourself. Do it. DOOO IIIITTTTT
    1. 0-6. DRS BEATS. Swing like a champ!

    X | 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1
    2 | 0 0 0 0 0 0 6 0 6 6 0 | 18 | 180

    I had Leyline down from the beginning. When the rule changed.. I purposefully left it just to see what it would do. It screws up the spread a little, and makes for some comical interactions.

  • posted a message on Pariah's Shield Question
    Moved to it's own thread.
    Helpdesk is for forum issues.
    Rules questions should be given their own thread.

    As to the question, Pariah's Shield says all damage that would be dealt to you is dealt to the Soul's Attendant instead. Trample is completely irrelevant to the Pariah's Shield, and although Indestructibility will let Soul's Attendant live, it is also irrelevant to the fact that the damage will be dealt to Soul's Attendant rather then you. All of the combat damage that would be dealt to you during this instance will instead be dealt to the Soul's Attendant.

    To be clearer, Trample has no bearing on Pariah's Shield when it does it's effect. Trample is specific to how damage is assigned and dealt when the creature is blocked. Pariah's Shield is redirecting damage - these are two completely separate things. Suppose you're getting swung at by a 4/4 with trample, and you block with Soul's Attendant equipped with Pariah Shield. The creature would assign 1 damage to Soul's Attendant and 3 Damage to you. However, Pariah's Shield states that instead of dealing 3 damage to you, that damage is instead dealt to Soul's Attendant. In short, Soul's Attendant would take all 4 damage whether she blocked or not.

    Hi KnickM Smile

    We use a spam filter here that automatically recognizes spam posts and removes them. It's a self-learning system that sees what we mark as spam and not to adapt to our forums and hit spam quickly while leaving normal posts untouched. We get hundreds of spam posts daily, and the filter does it's job exceptionally well. 99% of all spam posts are removed within a minute of having been posted. Unfortunately the filter isn't perfect and it will occasionally get a false positive. This only happens with new users, and it's rare (a couple times per week at most), but it does happen.

    Owaria's thread was unfortunately a victim of this rare false positive.

    There were enough elements that "reminded the filter of posts we've told it were spam in the past" that it marked it as spam. The filter system is very complex, so we can't say "this" or "that" specifically made the filter think it was spam, but being his first post, some of his word choices, having attachments (spammers like to do this), etc, were enough to make push it over the edge for the filter.

    It was marked as spam at multiple levels, and we didn't catch them all at first. That's why it bounced back and forth a couple times. I've made sure everything is marked Not Spam correctly now, so the post and thread will absolutely stay untouched now.

    Apologies for the confusion.
