  • posted a message on Spellskite and Kolaghan's Command
    The issue was a combination of the fact that I was also the head judge for the tournament and therefore couldn't prove my lack of bias, and my opponent's insistence that "if the spell or ability uses the word "target" in multiple places, the same object, player, or zone can be chosen once for each instance of the word "target" (as long as it fits the targeting criteria). This rule applies both when choosing targets for a spell or ability and when changing targets or choosing new targets for a spell or ability" was not applicable once the spell had been cast. The TO made the final ruling, in favor of my opponent. I'm not trying to convince my opponent at this point, I'm merely looking for assurance that my grasp of the relevant rulings to cite here is correct for future reference in events I judge.

    Although this was my understanding, my opponent refused to accept my citation of the relevant rules (114.3, 114.6, and 114.6b). Can I get confirmation that these are the correct rules to apply to this scenario? If not, which are?

    I control a Spellskite and a Blighted Agent. My opponent casts Kolaghan's Command choosing to destroy the Spellskite and shoot the Agent for damage. I attempt to redirect the shock to the Spellskite as well. Does this work?

    $15 for Draft, which is capped at 3 rounds even if pods have 9-11 people so it doesn't run overly late.

    Per pod:
    3-0 record gets 8 packs.
    2-0-1 record gets 6 packs.
    2-1 record gets 4 packs.
    Everyone else gets 1 pack.
    Anyone with 2 or more wins also gets that month's FNM promo.

    I've already posted these in the EDH thread, but I figured I might as well show them off here too:

    Amazing stuff! Animorphs! Grin

    Where's Brine Elemental? Frown
    This is meant to be one of my more casual decks, and I honestly just wouldn't have fun pickles-locking people out of a friendly game. It's also easier to avoid a lot of hate when I can truthfully say I'm not playing Brine Elemental.
    Quote from Groovelord »
    Just out of curiosity, did you make this deck just so you could call it Animorphs? Also, it looks like a lot of fun.
    Oh yeah, the entire deck came from that name. Grin

    Anyway, here's the latest masterpiece:
    I have a couple of other decks that are missing 5-10 cards each, but it'll probably be some time before I get my hands on a few more Demonic TutorsFoil, among other things, so this will be the last deck for a while.

    Finished another deck today, just in time to start figuring out how to fit some manifest in there:
    Now all I need is a Punishing FireFoil and I'll have one final deck ready to post.

    I've recently finished foiling a couple of decks, so I thought I'd share them here:

    I'm just a handful of cards away from finishing a few more decks too, so hopefully I'll be able to get those posted soon as well.

  • posted a message on WOTC Policy for Pack Payout at PreRes?
    Quote from C57black6 »
    OP: I've experienced this before at basically every shop I've gone to in the greater Chicagoland area since about the Gatecrash prerelease. It's a huge pain.

    There are so many competing stores in that area that they all have to have much higher prize payouts than most of the other places I've played to attract players. Wizards only sends a limited number of boxes for prize support to stores, which isn't enough to cover the increased payout, so most stores have to limit what they give out at the prereleases and cover the excess with vouchers that can be redeemed after the stores get more product. My store, for example, got only one case of M15 to cover prizes for all five of the events we ran. Had we wanted to give out the entire prize pool in M15 packs without vouchers, we would have run out before the third event and would have had to give vouchers anyway.

    That said, this is something that should have been very clear to your store before the tournament had even started, and it should have been planned for and communicated to the players going into the event rather than at the end.

    Let's see...

    Sharuum - Beta Underground Sea
    Derevi - judge foil Gaea's Cradle
    Ruhan - Revised Volcanic Island
    Reaper King - foil Dark Depths
    Oloro - Revised Underground Sea
    Xenagod - Revised Taiga
    Vorosh - Revised Underground Sea

    Well, that's illustrative. Not counting duals:

    Sharuum - Mishra's Workshop
    Ruhan - pack foil Umezawa's Jitte
    Oloro - judge foil Dark Confidant
    Xenagod - FTV Berserk
    Vorosh - foil Liliana of the Veil

    I like foils.

  • posted a message on New Magic Money!
    As someone who plays Magic, collects silver coins, and has a fond nostalgia for time spent living in New Zealand, I'm basically the target market for this and I'm definitely getting at least one.

    That said, how many other people could Wizards possibly expect to be interested in something so specialized and so far from any other Magic product?

    My favorite card in the set is Unexpectedly Absent, entirely due to the pun in the flavor text. Grin

    I'm inclined to doubt they have the necessary permits to be doing any logging.

    Quote from JWK
    The free equip on Batterskull can also be relevant.

    I don't believe this works. The Giant puts the equipment into play, then equips it to something...and then Living Weapon goes on the stack and makes the token to which it equips the Batterskull regardless of what it was already equipping. You need a way to Stifle the Living Weapon trigger.

  • posted a message on Words of Wind + Windfall + Chains of Mephistopheles
    I'm playing in a 4-player free-for-all multiplayer game. Each player has 5 cards in hand. I control a Chains of Mephistopheles and Words of Wind. I activate Words of Wind one time, then cast Windfall.

    My question is at what point do the permanents get bounced? I'm pretty sure I can choose to replace any of my 5 draws with the Words trigger, since I can keep applying the Chains trigger first until I reach the draw I want to replace with the Words trigger.

    However, when does the bounce happen in relation to the other players? If I replace my first draw with the Words trigger, will the permanents get bounced before each player has to try to draw their 2nd-5th cards, leading to a chain of Chains discard-draws instead of Chains milling? Or does the bounce happen after all 5 draws have occurred for each player regardless of the draw I replace with the Words trigger?
