Quote from Nevelo »Iirc He motions to the trigger happening and then tries to crew after asking if they can go to combat. It's clear he was asking to go to the beginning of combat. Putting the trigger on the stack targeting a vehicle you are crewing in response is out of order sequencing for sure, since the vehicle needs to be crewed prior to the trigger being put on the stack. However, judge should have made him choose a legal target for the trigger and then allowed him to crew after.
This whole debate about whether "combat?" in this context means pass to attacks phase is frankly ridiculous given how many things trigger at the beginning of combat, not to mention activations of manlands and vehicles. Maybe 2-3 years ago, asking "Combat?" implied a move to attackers, but the DCI really should get with the times here.
Quote from hoser2 »Normally crewing in first main would be preferable, but in this case the beginning of combat trigger from one creature was needed to make another creature big enough to crew the vehicle optimally.
Quote from racerxen »I woke up at 7am to check out standard, it was G/B Vs Mardu Vehicles. I went to teach some lessons, and came back to watch the same match? LOL Diversity, this is yet another BS standard. G/B Counters is consistently amazing and Mardu Vehicles is just as good. At least Saheeli combo got pegged down but it's still dismissal for format diversity.
Personally think that G/B is too good, it's only bad match up is U/B control which isn't exactly good atm. Why can't U/B and Grixis get value creatures and loads of mythics to have on curve?
