With call of the gatewatch card art we can be sure Jace is going to be there.
The flavor text confirms it even more.
Once again, a blue pw is a card never to underestimate.

Dec 26, 2015They are not protecting the game.Posted in: Magic General
They imagine sanctions prevent leaks to the public. This is wishfull thinking. Offenders are either not concious of the impact of their actions or imagine they will not get caught anyway.
To me whether or not the facebook group is public or private is a falacy.
As if private data was safe once put on the internet !!! Once it is posted on facebook it is public.
The real culprit here is the internal leaker.
Internal action has been taken again him or her and wotc should understand that given spoiler material, fans and judges alike might SHARE it. Ignoring that in todays world is far beyound idiocy and denial.

Bit of ranting:
This belongs to the rumor mill.
Belongs there even much more than the official spoilers from the Mothership.
If one member or more if the facebook group leaked cards on facebook, even in a closed group, they are no longer priviledged they are PUBLIC.
If sharing and looking at publicly leaked cards is bad enought to ban people (let alone judges) for 3 months, the entire salvation comunity should prepare to be banned.
Since NPH, WotC decided to make the whole set public a week before the PR. The whole godbook thing showed them the players wanted to see the whole set beforehand.
They can say what they want about sales, what really matters here is that we are passionate about their game, their product, and we want to see and share leaks. Are we all ban worthy ?
Sure BFZ sold well only due to expeditions and revealing all of them so early makes them seem less desirable (the preorder pricetag tends to lower the longer they are available before the PR) but if the sold product that was not good only for the golden tickets this would not be an issue.
Hey wotc ! It is time you manage and appropriate yourselves the early leaks... This is a fantastic opportinity for you to communicate in a positive manner. One that gives value to you and your product. You do the opposite, that is YOUR choice and let me let you: this has an impact on sales. Not a good one !
Dec 24, 2015This makes me loose respect in the DCI.Posted in: Magic General
As a judge I feel that the bans tool is being misused and that WotC takes judges for granted.
No judges, no organised play. No sales.

I really liked the fleshbag in the deck before and was always on the verge of playiing magus of the abyss just to have another copy. I really like having two sac outlet creatures at 3 mana.
@PtaQ : I can't see why you would want to play a card that is not a creature nor a card that interacts with them with this general. Our general provides both card advantage and inevitability, and while I don't see (yet) beastmaster as an obvious inclusion, I have long ruled the phyrexian arena out with the deck. Lyserg is a seasoned player with the deck and I am not taking his advice lightly
However I have noticed a CA enabler that might fit into our deck :
Qarsi High Priest
It would fill our grave while putting creatures on the battlefield, and provide us with a sac enabler, all this for quite a cheap cost. I would definitely test him in my Karador.
Oct 10, 2014Hi judge gurus,Posted in: Magic Rulings Archives
I searched this forum for all rullings given and haven't explicitly found an answer to the following question.
I need confirmation about the interaction between Word of command and counters (and more specifically force fo will).
I cast word of command targetting my opponent and he has a counter in his hand. Once he lets WOC resolve (which may be unwise), may I choose one of the counters he has and play it targetting WOC (just like misdirection can change the target of a counterspell to itself while on the stack) ? As the oracle texts stipulates that the chosen spell is played while WOC is resolving, WOC (being on the stack at the time) seems to me like a valid target. Am I correct ?
I my reasoning is right, sorry to have bothered, but as the card is a tad bit strange I prefer to have a rules guru confirm my ruling.
PS to mods : there is an issue with the "search this forum" tool when logged in : it simply searches ALL forums, and if searching specific forums is ticked, then it offers 100+ forums to choose from :/
Feb 12, 2014I'd always favor the revoker over needle in my builds due to being a creature. Elesh-norn is a beast ! I love her in any case so, sure.Posted in: 1 vs 1 Traditional Commander
Stony silence could work, but once again, it's not a creature so I am really reluctant to put it there. Spore frog could be back in the deck if need be, but I prefer children of korlis for griselbrand and sylvan library shenanigans.
Nevermore could be good enough to warrant it's inclusion, but the casting cost is steep.
Trying to accelerate the deck seems a more reliable way to grind a few % in those MU's.
As a side note : fauna shaman never pulled it's weight for me. Only one activation per turn is too few, and is takes for ever to be active, and therefore never sees any action.
I like apprentice necromancer a lot.
What do you guys think about the ooze combo shell (ooze, phyrexian devourer, and triskelion) ? can it provide us with a fast way to combo ?
Feb 10, 2014My experience VS derevi and zur was bad, really bad.Posted in: 1 vs 1 Traditional Commander
Without the combo kill and natural order, Karador has to evolve toward some other game plans.
The dredge approach could enable leaning more on the reanimator plan. The problem of going for a longer game is facing the ramp decks and coming out ahead despite the greater inevitability of their plan.
For now my dregde/reanimator package has been strongly relying on Bazaar :
Bazaar of Baghdad
Life from the loam
I feel that with the bans it needs to lead to a stronger endgame. Iona is paramount here, preventing Prosh and M. Wanderer from being played.
However, I don't feel we have the tools necessary to face red based ramp decks.
Oct 13, 2013The Emrakul pile has a huge flaw: it is very sensitive to bribery. This simple sorcery can ruin games by itself and is almost an auto include in blue based 1vs1 decks in my area of France.Posted in: 1 vs 1 Traditional Commander
I would focus on only one doomsday pile, but as secure as possible, with a few variations if some key cards are "missing" (hand, exile, graveyard). It seems to me that the rest of the deck shall be about wasting your opponents resources and tutoring doomsday.
