  • posted a message on How do you deal with long losing streaks?
    That question really depends on what you want out of the game. Do you want to increase your win rate in turn lowering theirs? Do you just want to get more comfortable with losing and learn to enjoy it more?

    The best way to deal with it IMO is to focus on getting better, while keeping in mind that what you can't control is not worth getting upset over.

    However, there's some key pieces of information you haven't mentioned for us to figure out how to help you get better. Which are, how much research do you put into getting mechanically better and politically better at the game? How far do you feel like you've grown as a player in terms of skill in the last two years? To know what would be most beneficial for you to focus on, we need to know where you are at in those particular skills vs where the winner might be at

    A straw poll ban list would be awesome. Don't know if enough people would participate though

    Watched this earlier as well. Was getting a real sense of dread for furture MTG. Though MaRo's tumblr post asking players how they'd like to see future crosovers, and the resounding response of "silver bordered only", gives me hope

    Apparently, the next Innistrad may be Castlevania from what's in today's Alpha Investments video. /puke

    Is this supposed to be fear-mongering? Even if they did go out of business (which is speculation to the extreme), is the USPS without competition? I mean, UPS and FedEx are out there. I hear they know how to get product from point A to point B.
    Sadly the USPS is partially without competition. Certainly, UPS and FedEx exist but are you aware that a lot of the time neither gets the package from point A to B. Instead they get the package from A to C (which is a location near B but not actually B) and the USPS gets it from C to B. Simply put none of the USPS competition has the infrastructure to replace them because they are in fact relying on the infrastructure themselves.

    Also there is the fact that UPS and Fedex (especially Fedex) greatly over charge for their services and aren't really competitive for smaller mail. At their rates, selling singles is barely worth it for cards at $10 or under

    Enemy battle lands is awesome! More partners seems like a pretty bad idea overall but looks like it's happening

  • posted a message on Commander legends speculation
    What are the odds, of a cycle of 5 monocoloured legendaries that partner with eachother or with any legendary creature with partner

    There's pretty close to no chance of the original partner ever coming back. It's just too hard to balance and widely viewed as a mistake and has been suggested as such by WotC making the partner with mechanic to replace it. They could maybe do a partner with for 5 legends but that would be A LOT of text. Perhaps they partner with a specific creature type unique to those 5 legends though, which could be pretty interesting

  • posted a message on Idol of Endurance v Electrodominance?
    Why does Electrodominance work with sorcery speed permanents at instant speed, while Idol of Endurance does not? I understand that the rules are listed on the Gatherer, but I want to know why these rulings aren't considered inconsistent.

    Anything above a normal masters set price (which it's so obviously not gonna be) won't be worth. Buy the singles. Don't support wotc's unreasonable greed is my opinion

    So basically the title says it. If Bristling Boar gets a menace counter on it, is it just completely unblockable?

    This card is stinky poo poo. I'd rather use a slot leaning on the colors strengths than doing what green does but badly

  • posted a message on How will Companion be enforced?
    Ah ok thanks for the info. It does seem unlikely to become a problem since there would have to be a companion powerful enough and some really specific circumstance for people to even get any kind of benefit from it and also get away with it. Hopefully nothing like that comes to fruition

  • posted a message on How will Companion be enforced?
    So I know there's already a lot of controversy around the Companion mechanic, but I've been really wondering something. How can you make sure early in a sanctioned tournament that your opponent is actually meeting the deck requirements of the companion card? Are people just going to have to call a judge to confirm that the submitted deck meets the requirements as soon as they see a companion creature cast?

    I know that later in a tournament people start to find out about other players' decklists and feature matches can catch a cheater. But what's to stop someone early in a tournament from shoving in an unsubmitted companion creature in their side board just in case they can get away with it when they know they're not in a feature match?

    If people have to call a judge every time one is cast and it becomes a regular thing I would imagine this will slow play like crazy
