    I know that Muldrotha, the Gravetide lets you play and MDFC card that is a land on the backside. What about something like Glasspool Mimic. If I already play a creature card from my graveyard can I still select it to play the landside?

    The rules commit answer for everything. The “social contract”

    Seems like the 6/6 haste and trample body is more sought after than the abilities

    They seem to be VERY slow on the uptake with continuing this trend.

    Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider and planeswalker plus abilities on my side, if it’s a +1 do I get two?

    There is no denying that Sheldon has done great things for this format. I believe those great things were necessary in the beginning. At this point in commander I think it needs to go further, I am sure the RC is aware of “problem cards” that cannot be outed by the “social contract” of commander. Would it hurt to try banning a card and see what happens then unban it? Would it hurt to unban a card because it was banned based off old meta or small sample size? Probably not but until him and his original group are gone it’s going to stay this way

    Oracle of Mul Daya
    E.g. Khalni Ambush

    What is the ruling for this? I thought it would not recognize the backside of the card. While paying arena cube I was able to play the MDFC green bolt land from the top of my deck.

    Using card tags is mandatory in the Magic Rulings forum. Please check your private messages to learn how to use them. I've added them for this post.

  • posted a message on Making our own RC?
    I recently tossed out a thread and it appears many people are not happy with the way the RC approaches the banned list. Now after this whole walking dead fiasco it is clear they are making a lot of people unhappy.


    Its a crazy idea, I know it would be extremely hard to manage this but what if the community could come together and make our RC, meaning our own banned list (done via voting through straw pull or something like that). The common idea is this is a community driven format, let’s make it that. We can just rename the format EDH-community format?

    Again just spitballing this idea. Not trying to get people fired, just seeing what our opinions are.

    I’ll give Sheldon and his group a little credit for promoting the format in its hay days but I seriously doubt they were a huge contributing factor to the popularity of the format.

    Either way I think they need to take a look outside their tiny metagame

    After watching some videos from SCG with Sheldon is anyone else particularly bothered by their reasoning? To me the rationale is “in our small play group we found this to be true”. I find it extremely disturbing that we have the rules committee basing their decisions off an extremely extremely small sample size.


    Here are some of the videos in particular that raised some red flags:

    Am I overreacting to their rationale or is it legit?

  • posted a message on Historic cube
    Has anyone humored this idea? The card pool is small but with jumpstart adding 300 cards is it enough to make this a thing?

    Hey man consider making a standard/frontier/pioneer cube. I'm doing the same thing. If you want my list shoot me a direct message

  • posted a message on Feather, the Redeemed
    If you wanted to support this I think the obvious go to is the Heroic cards from original Theros block. I don't think any of them are impactful enough to really a vintage/legacy cube. It would be interesting to explore this in a lower powered cube.

  • posted a message on [CUBE}[MH1] Magmatic Sinkhole
    I think the proper comparison for this card is Murderous Cut and I believe this a good reason to consider this card. It cannot go upstairs, but removing a big key blocker for the rest of the team to get through is very very valuable. The cost reduction is so huge on this card. Curving this into a haste creature is a huge tempo swing that I can see happening. I would be very surprised to not see this included in most cubes

    I like this archtype idea, it gives the big uncastable creatures another home other than Sneak/Show and reanimator decks. My main concern is how much you need to commit to this strategy without taking away from the other archtypes. Red is the main home for this, would adding these in dilute the already existing archtypes you have?
