And there we have it, Argentina win on penalties and face Germany in the final.
I feel pretty smart right now, because I predicted this final before the world cup I had Germany winning 1-0 over Argentina in the final and Brazil winning the 3rd place playoff, and all of this can still happen...

Almost fell asleep during this match. It's quite the snorefest. I'm counting one opportunity for the Netherlands (Robben's, around 90 minutes) and one for Argentina (Messi's short-range free kick). Disappointing game, I hope Germany beats whichever team that advances.Posted in: Sports

@Moneystax: just in case you weren't aware, the blue promo can only copy creatures you control. So it's not a Clone.Posted in: Limited (Sealed, Draft)

Busy day today. Barely started on the red review. Hopefully it's up sometime after the world cup match.Posted in: Limited (Sealed, Draft)

Posted in: Limited (Sealed, Draft)Quote from npontes »If you are picking the seeded pack just for the biggest chance of getting a really good rare for sealed, then Blue is surprisingly your best option.
This is flawed reasoning for a couple of reasons:
- Even if we agree that the blue rares are the best (which I don't - white's rares seem quite a bit better to me), you are also giving up on having a decent promo card, as the blue prerelease promo is barely playable. So if you're lucky and get that Air Elemental thing, you're still not better off than the black player who is guaranteed to get an Indulgent Tormentor in his pack.
- The one potentially good rare in that one pack is way less important than the average quality of commons and uncommons in that particular color. Blue's commons and uncommons are overall quite underwhelming in this format, and those are what form the backbone of any limited deck (unless you are insanely lucky).

This is turning out to be literally the biggest shock in world cup history.Posted in: Sports
Germany winning, fine. I did expect that. But 5-0? After 30 minutes? This is absolutely unreal. Brazil have just completely given up.

WHAT on earth is this match? This is... I don't even...Posted in: Sports
Germany are up 4-0 after a mere 25 minutes. Ok.
Edit: 5-0. Sure. Why not.

I don't think it's marginal at all. But our opinions seem to differ, that's fine, and I'll let it be at that.Posted in: Limited (Sealed, Draft)
