    Creative Spark just got spoiled. I'm not sure if we need it, but it looks interesting. It either cantrips in the lategame or kills a creature. The problem seems to be the same like with the Gearhulk, our average CMC is too low for it to be reliable.


    I don't hate it. It can be either removal or it can give us a card. It might be alright. It's another card for me to preorder regardless for testing. If anything we can use it to smooth out draws maybe even pickup a missed land drop.


    I like it a lot. It's a small removal which can also cantrips and it has a sweet interaction with Eternal Scourge.

    While her ability is good defensively, you can also use it to feed your graveyard or reuse ETB abilities.

    Mulldrifter cancels the cost of her ability. Archeomancer allows you to get one of your cards back. Deep Analysis is a good candidate to discard.

    I like 3.5 a lot, but I personally prefer 5e, I think. Especially as it gains more options for characters.


    I haven't read the book, just played the "beta". Is there enough material compared to 3.5/Pathfinder/4?

    whats the difference in reality between that and coalition victory? coalition victory as it is requires even more work than T&N.


    Tooth and Nail can be played fairly (I use it to grab Avenger of Zendikar + Regal Force). The RC has said that they don't ban cards because of their busted uses but because of their nominal uses.

    My father got out of surgery a while ago and it looks like he's fine. The docs said the tumor looked like a mushroom and the cancer was in the cap and not the stem. The stem was attached to his stomach so that was all very low impact. He names all his afflictions and this one is "buster" because he thought it looked like the alien that busted out of John Hurt's chest in Alien. He's really bummed that he can't keep it since he normally gets to keep the stuff they remove (I believe his prostate is in a jar in his bedroom). I was promised pictures but don't really want them.


    I'm happy he's doing better Smile

    Your comment reminds me of a guy who decided to taste his own arm after it was cut off ^^

    Pfft...

    Who is (was?) the mighty?

    This site used to be all about the Rumor Mill and would usually have 2-3 times more viewers than any other forum. We WERE the site for rumors, but now it looks like the EDH Forums are king of the pile.


    To be fair, the rumor mill activity is very dependent on the spoilers season. Wait a few months and it will go back to the top.

    So, those are a rarity indeed:
    • Only 6 mono white creatures have reach.
    • There are only 5 mono white elves.
    • There is only 1 mono white elf with reach Grin

    Quote from LouCypher »
    White does get Reach VERY occasionally - most recently Hundred-Handed One.


    This card is awesome **

    I meant other than the obvious ones. I assume most people speak at least one of those in europe (vs north america where speaking only one language is the huge majority). But i meant countries where i wont feel bad by making people speak the language i speak rather than talking to them in theirs.


    You can try the Netherlands and Italy.

    In Amsterdam, they are accustomed to English and French speaking tourists and the city is really cool. It has a unique atmosphere.

    Italian is close enough to French that you can read and decipher most common texts. They also have a tourism history and they speak english well.

    What interests you? History? Culture? Food?


    I like Food, don't like Art, like the Nightlife, dislike History, like the "feel" of towns, dislike museums, like meeting people, hate watching things.


    Come to Paris Smile

    (And we also have cool museums and old buildings if you change your mind!).

    But the difference is our playgroup matured and our decks got more and more efficient over time. We are not the red-haired stepchild who should be shunned by the RC and its followers. We are you 2-3 years from now: players deeply committed to the game with a firm understanding of good/efficient deckbuilding whom enjoy games with players at our level.

    This is one of the most laughable things I've read on this forum.


    Yeah Grin Especially directed to the mod with 14k posts. Sure, this guy must not have much Magic experience!

    Well my Rafiq deck played out exactly like I remembered, so I won't be playing it again. I'll probably play Oloro next week with Doomsday as a wincon. How antisocial can I be I wonder?


    You could have an alternate Doomsday wincon with extra style points.

    1. Gain enough life with Oloro
    2. Cast Tainted sigil and Vizkopa Guildmage
    3. Cast Doomsday
    4. Profit

    If you are interested in the capacity, I see no reason to play this over Fleetfoot Panther.

    If you are not, I see no reason to play this at all Grin


    Except the Panther has the flash we're looking for, a very impressive body for it's CMC, and it's Sun Titanable. Panther is a card I've actually run, while this guy, who I've actually never seen before, just doesn't make the cut.


    English might not be my first language but I think we agree: there are no reasons to play the Paladin rather than the Panther.

    It is an enchantment, it requires a full hand to use well (if I have one or two creatures in hand, I won't get much value out of it).
    Genesis and/or Masked Admirers often removes the necessity for a "full hand".


    True! But when activating survival costs 3 or 4 mana, it loses a lot Wink

    I don't see Survival as a problem. 1, 2 and 6 are the same argument and it isn't in the RC's banning policy (or should we ban Captain Sisay too?). Argument 5 isn't a criterion for banning either (or should we ban Sensei's divining top?)

    4:
    It is an enchantment, it requires a full hand to use well (if I have one or two creatures in hand, I won't get much value out of it). It is not powerful enough to tutor answers for everything: you still have to play the creatures and to draw enough to feed the discard. Sure, it can get degenerate in the right deck but it is the case for many cards.

    3:
    There are many cases when Worldly tutor or cheap black tutors are better than Survival so I don't agree. You can just tutor for a Reclamation sage and be done with it.
