Quote from DrAutissimo »Now, this might be an immense necro, and I am really sorry, but wouldn't Rule 101.1 break any kind of loop?
Like, if someone just stands up and leaves, it is essentially the same, but 101.1 provides an in-rule way out of every loop, therefore an infinite loop is inherently impossible to achieve?
Quote from Tiro of Meletis »I don't understand people, my friends included, who feel they need to quit MTG to better themselves. It's a hobby. It's a fun, recreational de-stress hobby that you can turn to and gives social interaction and a winding down between career, responsibilities, etc. Only if you make it your life does it conflict. But there's never a need to quit any game. If played right, it can actually be an important motivating factor in keeping you happy enough to be successful as it helps buffer responsibility with pleasure/recreation.
Quote from Kireek1 »Also, arrogantAxolotl has already mentioned some 3 card piles to go withEmergent Ulitmatum are there any others ?
Quote from Creedmoor »Are you looking at the one from Gatecrash? Or Return to Ravnica? Can't remember which set it was in. The new one featuring Teferi is gorgeous.
Quote from Creedmoor »Sorry for opening your eyes to this lol
I remember fighting on the forums back then about that art...
Quote from pinkmex »that art on the aura is a right-away contender for the worst of the last... 26 years.
Quote from Semoreh »The green leyline is kinda exciting to be honest. This in your opening hand + any dork (apart from arbor elf) gives you 4 manas on turn 2.
Quote from CurdBros »Ravenous Hydra seems like a kinda cool way to get some creature removal in a purely Mono-green deck. It is interesting to compare this to Ballista (a little cheaper when dealing with a single creature while still living...obviously can scale like crazy...but far less versatile ). Love that it starts with 1 toughness. What are everyone’s thought?
Quote from DR1V1R »It seems like you would only need 9 mana and 8 devotion to go infinite. Pay 4GG to cast Wakeroot and then an additional 2 to activate Nykthos. If you have 8 devotion at that point (and since Wakeroot counts as 2, only six other sources), use 5 to activate Wakeroot, 2 to activate the untapped Nykthos, and 1 floats. Rinse repeat. It does seem like a tough ask, but maybe easier than you initially laid out? Or I could be getting it wrong as well.
Quote from CurdBros »I’m not great with that stuff; but I don’t think that includes the lines taking Kiora, Nykthos, or Garruk into account.
Quote from CurdBros »So...Wakeroot Elemental is in an infinite combo wih any Nykthos tapping for X=8 or more...If the translation is correct, it untaps ANY land and turns it into a creature with haste...that means you can keep untapping and tapping a Nykthos over and over again.
Granted, it takes him, a Nykthos, and six other green symbols...but creatures and lands are relative easy to tutor/dig for...and it can be done at instant speed, even if Wakeroot just entered the battlefield. Could make for some very interesting brews. Could also just be a random 1-of to have an “oops I win” ability (and sink for late games when you have a ton of mana”.
I’m going to add one to my current deck just in place of one Primeeval Titan (since it is built to take advantage of infinite mana in some respects) and I’ll let you know how often it comes up.
Quote from Ertai Planeswalker »As much as I dislike this change as the next guy, I do want to remind everyone that if you did not pay for anything, you are not entitled to anything.
Everybody who paid for your MTGS account, raise your hands
