    I hope that is a city in Segovia, that would be really neat, a bunch of tiny creatures from big tribes.

  • posted a message on Custom spindown?
    So I know that the spindown d20s with the set symbols only started being made in 2001 or something like that. They are really a nice touch for the game. I have a Tron deck that I recently upgraded to original Antiquities Urza lands, so my question is this. Are there makers who do custom spindowns where I would be able to get one with the Antiquities set symbol? Brown would obviously fit best, but I really just want the symbol. Anyone ever seen somewhere that could hook me up?

  • posted a message on Narset, Parter of Veils Static Ability
    So I was recently at my LGS and I had a Narset in play, on my opponents turn he cast 3 Manamorphose and drew 3 cards with Narset in play. My opponent was more experienced than I am so I assumed he knew of Narset's static only allowing you to draw 1 card each turn. So he went on to tell me that since Narset was my card that I was responsible for her "triggered" ability therefor he gets to keep the 3 cards he drew with Narset in play. Was this the correct ruling or should I have been able to pick three cards from his hand to place at the bottom of his deck ?


    My understanding is that since it it not a 'may' on your part, there is no situation where he gets the cards. the judge would make the call about putting them back and shuffling, picking 3, etc, how to deal with it, but he does not get to draw the cards. you should definitely keep track of the ability, but it's like Chalice of the Void , it's not a 'may', it's not optional, and it does not depend on any action from you. once he was reminded or otherwise became aware that Narset was in play, he was either wrong if he is not a particularly experienced player, or trying to cheat if he is.

  • posted a message on Why do Magic player's defend the color pie so much?
    I for one want another Planar Chaos type set where they say 'screw the color pie'. Nothing super broken came out of there, but we got a lot of neat designs and colors got to do stuff. My big problem with the color pie is 'blue is the color of counterspells' and 'Standard is not allowed to have proper counterspells' same for white not getting Path type cards anymore, or good small creatures. When Wizards stops doing what the color pie says a color does, but still insists on sticking to the color pie, that is how the entire Modern format ends up with like 4 white sideboard cards, a couple multicolor cards with white, and the entire rest of the color is draft chaff.

  • posted a message on [Primer] Gx Tron
    So I have been going pretty hard on the wishboard, I want it to do everything. it has bugged me that I actually have to side in my artifact/enchantment removal and have to draw it, I can't go the '4 KGC gives me a functional 4 mainboard' route. Quick Gatherer search, Sylvok Replica seems pretty sweet. can't be cast at instant speed, but it can go off, cast it early, have it chilling there for a target. It might be too cute, but it would be nice to have the Surgicals be the only thing I actually have to side in.

  • posted a message on Dismantling a Deck...and Remorse.
    I'm still fairly new to EDH and only on my second deck, but I have not had that feeling. I built Ayli with all manner of lifegain and graveyard tricks....then I hated it. I play Tron in Modern, and after building Omnath, Locus of Mana I realized that ramp really is what I like to do best. I only get to play EDH every other week or so, so if my past record is anything to go by, getting bored will take a LONG time

    This is a great idea. The 'banned as Commander' question didn't have a place to expand, but I would like to see a number of the banned cards banned as commanders but legal in the 99. Rofellos is busted as a commander, but it would just be another good ramp card in the 99
    I feel that way about Erayo as well, although I neglected to vote for her in the unban category. I mostly want to see Gifts Ungiven unbanned. Prophet of Kruphix and Sway of the Stars as well, although I am less optimistic about those.


    Paradox Engine was the only unban I voted for, I thought that was a terrible mistake or a money grab, but mostly because I haven't been playing for that long and haven't gotten a firm grasp on which banned cards are a joke.

    A while ago I ran a grixis tribal djinn deck, and the most memorable game that has stood out from my playgroup has always been when I had to rely on an army of Emberwilde Caliph from rite of replication



    Haha, thath hilarious! Reverse lifelink

  • posted a message on MYTHIC CHAMPIONSHIP London new mulligan rule test in Modern & Limited
    I think people are worrying too much, I think the vast majority of the impact WILL be people making land drops. Tron is one of the decks that is supposed to profit the most, and it does, but the general rule of 'be ready to deal with a small apocalypse on the third turn' still applies, it happens a bit more often, but you always had to be READY for it. I just think like my Burn deck, I am a very small bit less likely for my deck to defeat me way more than the other player does. some less interactive decks do get better, but I really do see it being more about decks that want to interact getting a real chance to do so

    Extremely disappointed not to see any unbans. If there was ever a time to do it, it's alongside a large and predictable ban.

    Also lots of words about Faithless Looting (and other things) here: http://www.starcitygames.com/articles/38840_Was-Banning-Bridge-From-Below-In-Modern-The-Right-Call.html

    As much as I hate to vote for the fella, I sided mostly with Cedric Phillips. Regarding Rampaging Ferocidon, if nobody cares, then why not unban it? I personally know some locals who actually do care.

    I do not understand the Ban decision. Hogaak, Arisen Necropolis is only $4 right now. Altar of Dementia is only $3 right now. They don't need these cards to sell the set, unlike the Eldrazi.


    Because both of those cards go up enough to sell packs within a week because they dodged a ban, they weren't going to be expensive while things were so risky.

    Less cynical, cards that break with Bridge are going to come along again, Wizards seems to be addicted to that particular mistake. After the last couple years of Dredge, I actually think it's deliberate. But cards that break Altar and Hogaak that badly are extremely rare. Wizards made the choice that was less likely to result in more bans later. On their own, those are two neat cards that bring something new to the format without being broken on the surface. People not initially getting hyped about Hogaak is not us being bad at evaluation, it was us not thinking about taking the big obvious midrange value creature and shoving it in a combo deck. I STILL view it as more of a Tarmogoyf. Those two can exist in healthy shells that don't lead to toxic busted decks. Bridge really can't, there is no 'good enough to play with the big dogs but not a complete busted monster' with that card
