  • posted a message on custom playmats?
    I've commissioned the art for my Youtube Channel Playmat and I know of at least two other people in that community that have done so as well.

    As far as what makes a mat good, I would say that skill and style are the main things people look for. Without seeing any of your art, I can't really say anything other than that.

    I got the best pull of my life(foil Flooded Strand) from an Onslaught pack I bought from Walmart. I've also opened a lot of junk.

    I've been trying lately to get into doing alters, but it's a fairly daunting task. I don't think I'll ever trust myself to alter any card over $10. Other than that, I spend a lot of time on my Magic Youtube channel.

    See this is the problem with people like you. You refuse to see the obvious fact that there is much LESS chance of you losing even one basic land in your digital collection than there is of you losing your entire physical collection.

    Is your MTGO digital collection 100% safe and guaranteed for life? Nope. Is you paper collection? Nope. Anything COULD happen, but which scenario is more likely?

    You are just using that as an excuse to avoid admitting to yourself that your paper cards have much less utility than an official digital collection of the same cards would.

    Paper is old n busted, digital is the new hotness.


    I'm finding it really hard to believe that someone is so adamant about digital only. Do you not enjoy the social aspect of Magic? I think it's honestly one of the most amazing things about the game. Inviting a bunch of people over on a Friday night for Cube/EDH and other formats is just great. I hate feeling like I'm playing against a robot the whole time.

    Yes there is a danger to having your collection stolen or destroyed in some manner, but having cards you don't own online really isn't any safer. There IS a chance that somewhere down the road, Magic online might shut down. Magic: The Gathering may not be around for the rest of my lifetime. I'm happy to know that when I'm 70 (here's hoping) and I feel like teaching my great grandchildren how to play the game, I'll have that option.

    Digital and paper both have their advantages, but it is absolutely ridiculous to favor Digital over paper.

    If digital does become the only option, I better start practicing my communications.

    "gg"
    "Good luck, Have fun"
    "Waiting for SgtMcQuacks"
    "SgtMcQuacks has conceded"
    "SgtMcQuacks has left the game"



    Damn that feels good. It's like I just had an hour long debate with some friends.

    Are they saying there's going to be non-basic lands in the prerelease booster packs or just in any booster pack for Dragon's Maze? If it's any pack...that's crazy.

    Quote from Antibus
    I actually know of someone who repeatedly does this. Everyone knows about it, it's kind of awkward because he almost seems proud. He keeps buying fat packs, commander decks and such, guts them, and returns them. Doesn't hurt big retailers too much but I just imagine someone buying these, perhaps as a gift for their kid, or some kid saving up their allowance for that sweet new bunch of packs or some commander or pds product and getting a bunch of basic lands. It's kind of creepy but aside from avoiding him we don't know what a reasonable reaction would be.

    Call the police...too harsh?
    Go to every target and walmart in town with his picture...too crazy?


    Why exactly is it too harsh to call the cops on someone who is habitually stealing?

    Regarding the Spreading Seas incident, I was specifically looking for it when I watched the video and I still didn't catch it.


    It took me a while to see it, mainly because the link starts the video 2 minutes before it happens.

    The spreading seas are on top of the land they're enchanting (2 blackcleave cliffs). He makes a pile of an enchanted blackcleave and an overgrown tomb to cast Tarmogoyf. The spreading seas is now underneath the Overgrown Tomb, but still on top of the Blackcleave. At 2:27:35 you can see him spread out his lands to where the spreading seas is under the overgrown tomb and no longer on top of the Blackcleave. Then at 2:28:33 he picks up the Blackcleave cliffs and moves it to the side with another one, separating it completely from the Spreading Seas.

    I think your all wrong. I mean just look at this thread for proof. even if he bought 30 boxes, and had a credit card bill reflecting that people would point out (rightly so) that doesn't prove where he got "those" cards.

    Do you seriously expect him to post his credit card records on twitter? Maybe bring them to a job interview( if he gets one) and beg and plead for a chance to explain that he's not a thief?


    Your opinions are worse than the apathy I mentioned.

    If I called you a thief and you were fired for it why is it ok to make you prove your not?



    If he got 40-50(each) of the top 4 mythics/rares, from AVR in 30 boxes, then that dude has some serious luck. If he wants to clear his name, going through his Credit Card bills wouldn't be that insane of an idea. It's not like it shows anything besides what he's purchased. He probably shouldn't have to, but if he really wants to clear his name, it is an option.

    He's accused of stealing singles, right? And the thing that clears him of this is the fact that "sealed" product didn't match bar codes from CFB's stock? I don't care either way, but I don't see how this proves innocence.

  • posted a message on WOTC pushing Modern as a format?
    Quote from SalmonSushi
    Cards get reprinted in mass, the players who had those cards get mad and buy less product because of this bad experience. Its quite simple. Regardless how blame is shifted, bad experiences lead to less purchases.


    So these people are investing in cards by getting them through shops/online correct? It's not as if these people go out and buy boxes and boxes hoping to pull valuable cards. I'm not doubting that they'll buy less product, it just seems that they're a very small percentage of those who actually buy product.
