  • posted a message on God-Eternal Bontu and Sacrifice effects to Draw her again.
    As long as you are mindful of stack sequence, yes. In fact, with enough fodder and another sac outlet, you can sac Bontu on ETB to set up drawing her back if you feed enough other stuff into her trigger.

    That's correct, yes.

  • posted a message on Revival // Revenge, Rounded up and still kills my opponent
    You're misreading the card. What's being rounded up is the amount of life lost - so, if they are at 1, Revenge rounds the .5 to 1, killing them.

    Edit for clarification: The way the card is worded, it would have to round DOWN to do what you expected, so that when it reaches dropping your opponent's life by .5, it rounds to 0. Instead, it is rounding the amount it takes at 1 UP, to 1.

  • posted a message on Reddit Leak: Gideon's (SPOILER ALERT)
    My gripe can be summed up quite simply: Liliana's narrative has been an ongoing loop of her hubris being payed for by others for about as long as she has had a narrative. Gideon's fate here makes okay storytelling sense, though I would have preferred him getting to complete the traditional epilogue of the Greek tragic hero tale and die after coming home, but Lili's arc is stagnating in repetition. It remains to be seen if they use her choices here to explore new storytelling directions for the character, but within WAR itself, she's ultimately treading water in the same theme she's had all along.

    Imagine how brutal our new God would be if Sundering Titan were still legal in the format!

    The combo with Medomai the Ageless is super cute. Take all the turns. Captain Sisay searches them both up, too!


    Doesn't work. Medomai can't attack on extra turns.


    Doesn't need to be able to, he gets cheated in already attacking. Same way this effect ignores other attack restrictions because the cheated creature is never declared.

    I see Niv likes to cosplay as Urza, right down to making his own damn head part of a Macguffin Voltron.

    Thanks, I assume the "Spell" part is necessary fro grammatical reasons.


    Yeah. As a noun, the word being used for instant/instantaneous changes connotation a bit in a pretty awkward way. It would principally work, but the idea being conveyed is less muddled with two words.

    what happened to Parhelion I?


    It was crashed into Prahv at the end of Rav1's story.

    I am really interested why the type line is so long. I mean what would be the literal translation of that line. I mean there are two words to describe "Instant".


    More or less "instantaneous spell"

  • posted a message on Challenging Troll
    I am ALMOST certain that the intended translation of "desafiante" here is "defiant" and NOT "challenging."

    Flavor text is something close to "For most, war is a calamity, for others, an opportunity, and for a few, a pleasure."

  • posted a message on Is playing all archetypes necessary to become better ?
    Basically? Yes, exactly what you've said.

    Getting at least a basic competency with archetypes outside of your comfort zone will make you better at piloting decks IN your comfort zone, better at piloting AGAINST those other archetypes, and better at the game in general. It's worth having a broad AND intimate understanding of how different strategies operate, and different archetypes will force you to develop skills with parts of the game and its mechanics that you won't pay as much attention to in your comfort zone.

  • posted a message on If you do X, I'm going to scoop
    I've said it before, and I'll say it again: a culture of whinge scooping OR tac scooping in a meta strongly encourages the kinds of decks those same people tend to detest. If you handicap strategies that rely on interacting with another player by tac scooping, you're creating an incentive to build decks that win without interaction to avoid being wrenched in that way. Whinge and tac scooping gives insular combo decks a huge advantage in a meta.

  • posted a message on Exile during combat phase
    The full trample goes through because though it is still considered blocked, there is basically no longer a toughness in memory to count against, thus nothing to soak some of the damage.
