    Magic cards breed like tribbles.

    Just curious, how many people attend FNM? Of those people, how many have a serious problem with this obnoxious player?

    Unfortunately with an unreceptive store owner you'll have to take matters into your own hands. As one of the above posters stated, don't attend FNM anymore.
    To take it a step further, quit buying cards from this store. Take a trip to that store two hours away, buy a box of boosters and draft at home(or some other appropriate venue). Take a large chunk of this LGS's income away for one month and see if the owner notices. It sounds like the owner doesn't want to lose income from even one player, see how he feels losing income from all the other players. The problem is that the store owner thinks he has a monopoly on MTG in the area, and he doesn't think any of you all will change your behavior and spending habits. In which case he has no incentive to care. If enough of his customers vanish, he may take action against the offending player.

    If that seems like too much effort, a funny thing you all could do is get every other player to just concede every time they get paired up with the problem player. I know giving that player wins seems counter intuitive, over time the player will get it that no one wants to play with them(maybe/hopefully). While people like prizes, I think that playing the game comes first.

    Either way if you want change at your LGS and the owner is unwilling to change, it's going to take some effort on the part of a majority of the other players.

    I think that for older blocks, prior to mythics, you allow for another rare from that block, in place of a mythic. I’d rather build that way than being stuck with a planeswalker out of flavor.


    True! You mean another Mythic Rare from another set? I'd thought about that, I'm just not sure if there will be broken interactions with Mythic and older cards, that's why I chose Planeswalkers because I don't think they can do that much damage. If you try out other Mythics let me know how it goes! Also, if you encounter broken combos too! Thanks for the input! I appreciate it!


    No I don’t mean another Mythic from another set.
    Say I choose Urza’s Saga block, instead of four rares from that block and a Mythic Rare from a future set, I just get five rares from Saga block. This way all my cards are from the same sets.

    That Mana Vault is worth about $20.

    Online I'll use Troll and Toad. I have had a couple issues with them, but considering the volume of purchases I've made, over I'm all fairly happy with them.
    I also go to E-bay now and again, if you're smart about it, it's OK.
    ABUGames is very reputable, but their prices are not competitive. You can always count on them with quality.

  • posted a message on Desecration Tomb and dying tokens
    @Rezzahan, by "abilities of that type" I was referring to abilities that look for objects in the graveyard, looking for tokens. I get all the interactions you mentioned, I had never seen a "leaves the graveyard" trigger before. Most of my confusion came from not carefully reading the card. Had I read it more slowly and carefully I'd have never even created this post.

    Thanks, I should learn to RTFC. Also, just found out that tokens cease to exist prior to being able to trigger abilities of that type.

  • posted a message on Desecration Tomb and dying tokens
    When tokens die they go to the graveyard and then cease to exist. Does this trigger Desecrated Tomb? Do tokens ceasing to exist count as “leaving the graveyard”?

  • posted a message on 1994 cards look washed out.
    Legends, The Dark, and Fallen Empires, while being more washed out than their foreign counterparts, were; not as washed out as Revised cards, and have a black boarder. Having a black border de-emphasizes the washed out look somewhat. So compared to Revised, they don’t seem so bad. All in all.

  • posted a message on Cast vs Played
    It can ve confusing because WOTC has used different wording over the years. If you look at the original printing of Aether Vial compared to new ones.
    At one point they changed “cast” to “play”, for some silly reason.
    “Onto the Battlefield” used to be worded “put into play”. This became annoying for seasoned players and outright confusing to new ones. So then WOTC changed to the current phrasing. Older cards however, still end up in the mix. Meddling Mage is one of those cards that needs a reprint with correct template.

  • posted a message on Infinite Combo: Enduring Renewal
    This is a classic combo, I field it every once in a while when I need a combo deck as well. Another way to run it is with Ashnod's Altar and Perilous Myr. I might suggest a Wrath of God effect or two, in case of emergency.

    Lands in front of creatures.

    Just...no.

    I wonder where this came from. It just makes everything more confusing, for me.


    That's how magic was played.

    Look at this thread

    https://www.mtgsalvation.com/forums/magic-fundamentals/magic-general/797386-earliest-recorded-magic-tournament

    Look at (11:33, for example). Lands before creatures.


    Funny, I started playing in August of '94, up in Seattle I might add, and I never really encountered anyone playing lands up front during my formative years playing. Not until much later on did I run across the phenomenon. The whole playing lands up front as the norm seems to have changed fairly early on.
