    What if your first count was off, and you want to count again? can you not use pile shuffling to re-count?

    Would you rather it be at rare?

    That way, you'll be pulling it twice as often.

    posted a message on Mothership Spoilers (1/4) - Oath of Gideon, Taplands
    The first thing that comes to mind that has synergy with oath of gideon is garruk wildspeaker

    Just imagine if you played a 1-drop turn 1 and then a 2-drop token maker turn 2(gather the townsfolk, raise the alarm). You'd have like 5 4/4 tokens if you overran.

    Some more serious ones

    Top-Deck: playing the last card that you drew(as though you' played the top card of your deck)
    Cube: A custom draft deck.
    EDH: "Elder Dragon Highlander" It's a social format
    Commander: Wizard's official name for "EDH" because they want to avoid using the word "Highlander" for an official format or product.
    Top 8: Make the playoffs(usually cut to the 8 players) of a large tournament
    fizzle: when a spell gets countered because it has no targets.

    I'll bet that a lot of bad players will try to use strip mine at the pre-release, and end up only mana screwing themselves.

    The fact that so many posters on here vehemently disgaree with how WotC has handled this is all the convincing I need that they did the right thing.


    I don't understand the "People don't like it" implies "it is right" sort of reasoning. Id definitely doesn't make any logical sense.

    posted a message on Why is the BFZ block so bad.
    BFZ is going really bad. And not just the power level, the part that bothers me is why eldrazi scions in BFZ produce 1, when now they should produce <>, why wait half into the block to change a mana symbol that has worked for 15 years. And why not have it throughout the whole block, now we got a block with eldrazi mana, and eldrazi's producing old magic mana, could they not get it together enough to have all the eldrazis in a block produce eldrazi mana

    <> IS 1, your criticism here is simply incorrect. Also, this is why the symbol wasn't changed in BFZ - http://markrosewater.tumblr.com/post/134995536608/why-was-the-colorless-mana-symbol-added-in-ogw-and.


    It would probably have worked cleaner if they started that tempting at the beginning of the block rather than the middle of it.

    Wow, a lot of the replies here are along the lines of "you shouldn't care how it gets presented". Why shouldn't they?
    This comes across as a good sized pile of sour grapes.

    How is it sour grapes?


    I don't buy cereal based on the packaging; I buy it because it tastes good. All the pretty pictures in the world aren't going to make Cornflakes taste better than Frosted Flakes. The more money you're spending on something, the less it should matter how it's presented and more how good / useful it is. There's a reason Dragon's Maze warmed shelves while Khans sold like hotcakes.



    I always thought "sour grapes" referred to saying that you didn't want something that you tried, but failed to obtain. It comes from an Aesop fable bout a fox who tried to get grapes out of a tree, failed, and walked away saying that they were probably sour anyway.


    I'm not understanding how that scenario matches that definition. Am I missing something?

    If you're entrusted with the information, and you leak it then yeah, it's theft. It's a breach of contract.

    If you come otherwise obtain the information, such as from an anonymous poster on 4chan, then it's not theft, it's fair use. The WotC lawyers will know this even if their propagandists don't.
