    Has anyone played around with 1 of Revenge of the Hunted

    Yes, it's a worse become immense.
    and by worse i mean it in a thousand ways:
    • you MUST cast it when you draw it, meaning that if you don't have a creature down it is a dead draw, even if you have one you may still not want to cast it (maybe for fear of bolts, palms or because you still need the mana)
    • it MUST be the 1st card you draw, meaning you probably won't use slip through space
    • it is sorcery, you can't use it to protect your creatures, you also can't use it post blockers (even if you cast it for 6)
    • as above if it's in opening hand it's terrible


    Yeah, that thing's trash.

    Are we going to want to slip Ancestral Vision in anywhere? It might be a little too slow for us, but with it being legal now, we'd be a bit crazy not to at least consider it.

    What I want to happen (to modern)


    Banned: Eye of Ugin, Eldrazi Temple, Simian Spirit Guide, Ancient Stirrings
    Unbanned: Bloodbraid Elf, Ancestral Vision, Sword of the Meek

    What I think will actually happen
    Banned: Eye of Ugin
    Unbanned: No changes


    Ancient Stirrings getting banned would be the end of Tron; I don't think they're going for that.

    What I want: Eldrazi Temple, Eldrazi Mimic banned
    What'll probably happen: Eye of Ugin banned

    If only this was 1 mana to sac ...




    Yeah, this doesn't make the cut as long as we have Ancient Stirrings.

    Has anyone given any thought to sideboarding Tremor as a way of getting rid of Eldrazi Mimics on turn 1? Seems like it'd need a bit more focus on lands that make red (we'd probably have to run Mountains instead of Forests), but it looks like it'd buy us time to O-Stone the biggies away and Ghost Quarter their Eye.

  • posted a message on Which booster box would be the best to buy?
    If you're drafting it, Return to Ravnica or Khans of Tarkir.

    If you can be convinced to put the box in the back of your closet for four or five years, Return to Ravnica.

    I'd just flip it. Even at $80, you're either looking to hit a foil Sorin or you're losing money cracking it.

    That's only legal in events with continuous construction, which are always Limited & always Regular REL events like Prereleases. Unless those basics were in his sideboard, he can't do that.

    Quote from Teia Rabishu »
    Any value they gain in pucapoints has to be cashed out as cards made through in-system transactions. They can't simply grab a bunch of points for their staples, then sell those points. It adds an extra layer of inconvenience that drives down the available supply of endpoint staples.


    Case in point(s), selling points for cash has recently been added to the list of banworthy offenses, which should actually obscure (but definitely not fix) the rate of inflation. They want those points to keep moving around & make it tougher to actually stop using their service.

    I think a good first step toward fixing their economy is to replace (for new membership renewals or on an opt-in basis) the ban with a member-to-member point sale mechanism where Puca processes the payment and transfer of points in one transaction & charges the seller a 5% fee in points. That could start removing some of the million or so Zimbabwe Dollars Pucapoints that are in the system & shouldn't be.
