Seriously this whole time Bolas amnesia could have been cured by a Convenient Head Trauma? This is quite cliché.
I don't understand why Vraska would be mad at the person who mindwiped Jace. She hated old Jace. She is in love with new Jace. CLearly the mindwipe is an improvement from her point of view.

Sep 13, 2017Posted in: The Rumor MillQuote from AnImAr_ »Quote from Courier7 »The restriction on Castaways isn't a problem because treasure tokens are going to be so easy to attain--decent stats for a common ground creature. The Hoarder...well, it's a pirate and if it dies then at least you get something for it--this one will actually be better in Standard because it enables revolt push. Same for the Buccaneers--it is a pirate and when it explores I would rather put the counter on it for a hasty 3/3 to enable raid.
Skulduggery...*sigh* I like the card but I am having a difficult time getting past the fact that it is misspelled.
Oh God why did you point out that misspelling? That bothers the crap out of me
Apparently both spellings exist (I didn't know the word before so I just googled it to see how it was normally spelled).
Sep 11, 2017Subbak posted a message on TCGPlayer preview: Legion's Landing / Adanto, the First FortI think I'm going to have to quote Eddie Izzard every time I play/flip this. "Do you have a flaaag? No flag no country!"Posted in: The Rumor Mill

Yeah, same. I currently have it in a deck with Ravenous Baloth and Wirewood Savage. I guess that deck is gonna need a whole lot of tweaking...
I have good news for you: it's an error in the article, and Clever Girl is still a beast.
Sep 6, 2017The storyline is really getting better. I think they've really got how a blue character would react to Jace's situation.Posted in: Magic Storyline
I hope the next story starts immediately after this one end. I wonder how Jace is going to react to the information available (i.e. his rescuer is an old enemy of him and doesn't know the detail of what happened to him). Is he going to try to bluff that he hasn't lost his memory (not too hard given that he's a dehydrated castaway, he could be delirious)? Is he going to go "The old me was your enemy, but I'm a different guy, can I serve on your ship?"? Is his telepahty going to come back to him now that he's got other people to practice it on?

Actually it's from Ethiopia, but it was indeed introduced to Europe by Arab merchants.

I wonder if they plan this in advance when giving previews to Japanese or Korean websites.

To be fair, there's definitely corner cases where it matters: You have a 6/6, and they have a 5/5 and bunch of smaller dudes out. If it didn't force you to copy, you could just cast it for x=5, not copy, wipe their board and keep your 6/6. With the forced copy, you can only pick 2 or 3, and thus either leave the 5/5 alive, or kill off your own 6/6.
Or if Kess, Dissident Mage is out (toughness 4) and you play Anger of the Gods. You wouldn't want to copy it then.
Then don't use mana from the Wellspring to pay for spells you don't want to copy? It only copies spells cast using mana from it, not all your spells.
Incidentally this means you can't copy instants you cast from a Gearhulk trigger, which probably limits its standard usefulness.
Aug 30, 2017THis thing is so huge it's ridiculous. Judging by the scale ships, the deck is at least 40m above the water. Unless its draught is at least as big, it will capsize faster than you can say "Didn't learn anything from the Vasa, did you?". That's almost twice as big as the draft of the largest ship ever built, the oil tanker "Seawise Giant". It's also way more water than is likely to be available for navigating between islands and not looking like a big fat target, which a pirate ship should be trying to do.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
And let's not even go into the problem of working the sails when you're up several hundreds of meters on a boat in a rough sea...
Okay I'm not sure why I'm getting worked up on this given that this is Magic anyway but still... that image is ridiculous.
Apr 10, 2017Yes, her ability is worse than Heliod's if you just look at the rate (2/1, with vigilance as long as you keep Heliod, vs 1/1 vigilance), but unlike Heliod, she can turn on by using her ability relatively easily, while tokens don't help at all with devotion.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Apr 6, 2017Posted in: The Rumor MillQuote from knto »Does anyone know when Borderland Marauder rotates? If its still in stanard that seems like a great synergy to have in a rdw. Both are passable on their own and the pair togeter threaten 12 combat damage in one swing. Its a bit Christmas landy, with all of the removal about, but its great to force them to halve the answers.
Borderland Marauder is not in Standard. It rotated away a long time ago considering it was only legal in M15.
Apr 5, 2017Posted in: The Rumor MillQuote from ThyLordQ »Oh hey, actually, another thing that works with Kiki-Jiki.
It's...slower, but it still works.
That's actually quite hilarious. Instead of attacking for 10 billion, you attack for 4 10 billion times.
Also worth noting that unlike other Kiki combos, this one gets through Gideon Jura's +2. Not that it matters hugely, the fact that it doesn't get through Blind Obedience effects (which Restoration Angel also fails to do) is probably a bigger problem, and the fact that it's mono-red is a much, much bigger advantage.
Jan 9, 2017Subbak posted a message on B&R Update: Emrakul, Copter, Reflector Mage banned in Standard, Gitaxian Probe, Gravetroll in Modern!Posted in: The Rumor Mill
It's possible that Reflector Mage was either too good in Saheeli Twin (great interaction with both of the combo pieces), or would have been oppressive with cards in Amonkhet (remember it was supposed to have rotated by then) and they knew it would have to be banned eventually.
