    Given up?

    I'm not sure they actually turned up to the match. I can see the Germans getting into double figures by full time.

    Quote from VegaTDM »

    Edit: Isn't it actually unfair to give people like Starcity the godbook earlier than players? They can directly monetarily benefit by raising the price of a known high profile reprint before anyone else knows, why is it ok to tell a retailer but not the players?

    Just to clear this one up. The God book is not given Starcity games. It is given to the few remaining Print Magazines that cover MTG so they can get a set review out to their readership in the issue released closest to the pre-release/release date of the set. Instead of having to wait until the set is uploaded on Gatherer and then having to be put into an issue where it is no longer relevant.

    Every Website that does preview cards for a set is only given the cards they are slated to be previewing. Anything else that they know about a set they have learned the same way the rest of the world does.

    Armageddon does not do anything to mana, it destroys lands. AS opaline unicorn is not a land it won't be affected by Armageddon.

    Not can't. You won't be able to target Iroas with Ray of dissolution until it resolves and has hit the battlefield at which point it will be indestructible.

  • posted a message on attack vs def question
    You appear to have just missed the rulings forum, I'll just shift this over to the correct place.

    To answer your question, regardless of which creature is attacking or defending they deal damage equal to their power to the opposing creature.

    So in your scenario the attacking creature will deal 8 damage to the blocking creature which will deal 7 damage back to the attacking creature. In this case that means that neither creature will deal enough damage to the other to destroy it and they will both stay on the battlefield.

    Your opponent is correct, both players get priority in the declare blockers step after blockers have been declared.

    At that point he is able to use the abilty on Victual sliver. Since your creature was blocked it will remain so until the end of the current combat step and unless it has trample it will not deal any damage in the relevant combat damage steps.

    Quote from Lifa »
    Okay, huge fan of the show, the books, & even bigger fan of the wild conspiracy theories that Game Of Thrones/A Song Of Ice And Fire generates. While I wait with extreme impatience for the next episode to air (COME ON, ALREADY!) I am wondering if any of ya'll ever discuss things that are hinted at & have evidence but are not hard facts as presented by the show or the books.

    Not in this thread as there have been a number of different issues when people have brought up things that occur in the books to early. So I am going to reiterate my earlier instruction.

    This thread is just for discussion about the TV series alone. If you wish to discuss the books please create a thread in Printed Media.
