High mages are veteran Izzet members who've been here a long time and are well respected for their posting habits.
Acolytes are next down the chain. They've been around for a while and serve as a bridge between apprenticeship and High Magery.
Apprentices are newer members who've generally yet to prove themselves.
Each High Mage has at most one Acolyte and one Apprentice. When all current High Mages have an Acolyte and an Apprentice and a new member wishes to join, one Acolyte will be promoted to the position of High Mage, making the Apprentice under them an Acolyte and another Apprentice their Acolyte as well.

But hey, why do you think two-headed giant (as a format in general?) sucks, Rocker? I love it! The team play and (the fact that I am usually the dominant "head" leaves me) controlling the plays to an extent is a great portion of fun to me. Or is that just my inner black-mage seeping out?
Edit: I also think that in the "Erratic Portal", bloodydoves should be commented on... he was (and is) a great guy. I'm sure DF will back me up on that... :weird::thumbsup:
Edit, edit: Be sure to update any in-sig. links... I almost forgot that myself!
So who all is going to / able to / wanting to attend the Future Sight Prerelease? A few friends of mine and I are going at 2-or-3 in the morning, because the local shop is such a big place that they offer a midnight trial. Since one of us (the one driving...:-/) doesn't get off work until 2am, we aren't able to attend that, just going to get some advanced knowledge (of playing the set, something that the 'Mill just can't do...), and just to hang out and play some games.
By the way, it has been snowing up here like a *****. Are any of you (as so many of us seem to be in the Upper-Midwest region) suffering this as well?
This snow is terrible. I've had a bunch of tennis matches cancelled.
Future Sight is looking awesome; my friend RakdosKing and I are bumming rides off another friend to Novi, where RK and I may play 2HG and draft as well, which should cost us each around $35. Sounds good to me!
@Ravus, could you give me some strategy help, as neither of us has played 2HG before?
Yay, I'm an Acolyte! An unusual field, but we'll see what I can do...Try to pull a page out of Karn's tricks and do that thing no one else can...go back in time...!!! (Boy, I'm messed up today.)
@ wamyc...Your sig? Thanks.
EDIT: Haha, this computer is weird and won't let me edit my sig. I'll do it later...shut up wamyc!
EDITEDIT: ZOMG!!!!111!11!1 The dark forum skin is sooooo sexy. YEAH!
EDITEDITEDIT: Never mind, I got the sig updated...shut up, I said I was messed up today!!! Leave me alooone...
EDITEDITEDITEDIT: @wamyc, could you send me some info on the Mafia thing so I kinda have an idea of what's going down? Thanks!
Future Sight and Sensei's Divining Top make a sweet combo, in case you didn't notice.
Right now, I really want to get another Rite of Flame and another Seething Song, but everything else works fine. I'd take out the Peer Through Depths and the unreliable but awesome Flame Wave.
I'd appreciate any constructive criticism my honored colleagues have to offer!!!
jejejeje, I'm turning into Tony! Spaztic much???
Anyone who wants to get an initial update on the mafia game who hasn't can PM me for one. This is the last time I'll bring it up and I must remind you all to not discuss this outside of PMs with other clanmates.
Also, I always welcome PMs containing advice about the game but I'm not going to elicit them, so if you want to participate in the clan contest mafia game, as you should and may, you need to read the thread (regularly) and PM me with your thoughts. Again, I value your input and want it, but I'm not going to ask for it.
But then the ":D:laugh2:" part becomes almost cruel.
Or I don't get it because I'm trying to analyze a joke, which has its value on a highly subjective level.
What, would my post be better with out the 'banghead' cmiley? I bet you just don't like red smilies.
Now who's the crazy one??? See? I tolerate and accept their differences as a unique addition to my awesomely sexy black forum skin...
I don't think people who analyze the subjectivity of jokes should be wasting brain cells by splattering them on walls...save the cranial abuse for those who aren't as mentally stimulating...
But yeah, I thought you were completely destroying a fellow Izzet's self-esteem...or at least trying to. In other words, you got the joke. Congrats.
So whats everyone been up to?How are yall doing?
What decks is everyone using currently?What did you fellas have for supper last night?Are we currently in some sort of clan contest,if so what sort?If not,why?When will we be?How can I help?

Thanks to a_passer_by for the AWESOME banner!:jam:

Time Manipulation Device Mark Three: Hour Glass Reversal
Idea was found looking into the past useing the time turner to go to egypt. After study have made improvments to device and are ready for testing. Waiting for Slaker to come back to throw him through it. I hope he turns out better then the elf i captured.
Decks UR Delver UB Dredge WB Tokens UR Moderns Storm
The dark skin causes me headaches. I figure it's way more good for your eyes to view black letters on white than vice versa.
I should think the exact opposite. I hate glare from a white screen. It's probably worse on your eyes, too, with all of the excess light. I suppose that if the dark skin made you squint that could be bad on your eyes, but it's a pretty crisp contrast of colors.
Tony, it seems as if you just can't get over the old KarstenBot Decks... even whilst you splash blue in the place of green, it is almost the exact same thing! And I'm sorry to say that Cryoclasm is dead. In the current meta, there are a lot of mono-(not white or blue) decks out there. Makes me a sad panda... :they should register the smily for that:
Oh well, if it works it works, right?
So now you're not so keen on the Time Manipulation deck, Niv? Hmm, I suppose if you want aggro, I could get a few good lists set up. Though I don't know if red-based aggro wants blue all that badly...
Oh, and Niv... just to further emphasize my point: Again you make it all too easy for me to foresee the list you are to try to use against me... unless of course you are simply throwing random evidence (I know there is a better word, but my mind is drawing a blank... :-/) for me to be mislead... either way; good luck!
So what are people expecting to be big once Future Sight comes out?
Edit: Rather funny, wamyc, but I'm not certain that's what the Rakdos want...
umm...Incorrect Wamyc..There are/were many female Autobots,I can name them ,but that would only bring your statement to a more severe level of inaccuracy.Ill put it this way...Optimus,Ironhide,Brawn and Trailbreaker(I think)all had women...so there.
I wouldent go posting pictures of Arcee like that either....Springer may come kill you...
