Check the Gadwick rulings : "If Gadwick enters the battlefield without being cast, or if it was cast for a cost other than its mana cost, the value of X for its first ability is 0. (2019-10-04)"
A token would enter without being cast

Where did you see any of that happening?

We cannot know if they did or did not debate it. Their strong stance on the BaaC list, and its removal, seems to show they want streamlined over complicated. But I think being slightly more complex would be of benifit.Quote from schweinefett »Yea, that's the thing, right? I get that there's no cost to start the game with an 8-card hand, but it just seems a bit too knee-jerky to not at least debate/consider reintroducing 'banned as general'/'banned as companion'.
The comp rules do actually say it has to match color identity.By the way, as the rules of EDH stands, since the companion isn't technically in the deck, does colour identity count? I get that it probably should, but not sure if the rules technically say that too.
Apr 17, 2020I just think the 'no downside' was too much for even people who push Sol Ring. No way to interact outside counter-magic (not even discard or exile interaction) on a fairly powerful spell just seems dumb. I would have preferred it banned as companion (or just not allow companion to work), but it makes sense.Posted in: Commander Rules Discussion Forum
Apr 17, 2020I think the card is really lazy design. You are right about the power-creep, its been so noticeable this year. I dont think it is worth a ban, its just another U/G goodstuff card people will either get sick of playing, or will draw so much hate it gets pulled.Posted in: Commander Rules Discussion Forum

Isnt that exactly what bettering one-self is? Getting good? I dont think that was a wild misinterpretation of what you said.Quote from Macabre »So, just to clarify, you've interpreted my statement about giving players a chance to better themselves, as "git gud" ?
Now perhaps he nuance was missed, but tuck being a chance for people to 'improve' surely does not make the average game more fun, right?

Take them back. Have the gumption to play the cards you want. Stop asking for others to fix the problems you perceive.Quote from Carthage »Give me back my deck slots.
Its not. My group, and tons more, actually practice restraint. You should try playing at less than 100% efficiency.The diversity of the game is already dead. That's the whole point of this topic. It's not interesting for me to make a deck anymore because of how many slots are already taken by broken standalone cards that outclass everything and will forever outclass everything.
Dec 3, 2019You cannot. Bolt Bend has targeting restrictions "of target spell or ability with a single target". Since you cannot fulfill that, it is not a legal target. A spell without a legal target cannot be cast.Posted in: Magic Rulings

So the vast majority wants high power and combo. If there were people who wanted to play at a lower power level, you would be able to cultivate that. If you have not been, that is unfortunate, but also a rarity. The alternative is a repressive ban list that does not allow people and the format to thrive. You have never been able to articulate an alternative past 'do what makes it better for me'.Quote from Carthage »"You sound like you just don't want to lose"
"I can't spend money on cards right now"
"I only have the one deck"
"I want to win"
"I prefer games with stronger cards"
"Combo is just part of the game"
On top of that you actively deny it works for other groups.

Nov 12, 2019There is very little talk here because the site was gutted by poor new management.Posted in: Commander Rules Discussion Forum
Coffers is OK, but has no real protection, kill it. Every Commander deck should be able to deal with 1-3 problem lands.
