    If anyone spots any broken links, please let me know so I can make the proper correction.

    At first I thought that this card, and token, were a joke, but it looks like it's actually a real thing, so the update has been made. Thank you!

  • posted a message on Newest version pop-ups in trade threads?
    It looks like I can use card tags within my haves/wants list to have the most recent versions of cards show up, but is there a way to switch the pop-up cards in my haves/wants list from bringing up the oldest versions by default to bringing up the newest versions by default instead?

    Here's my trade thread so you can mouseover the links therein:

    Thank you so much,

    Mistform Ultimus was the first Eldrazi ever printed.

    Do you mean, "the first changeling?

    Ahh, so it was only in one edition, and only on foil cards (which didn't have reminder text in the way). Thanks folks! Off to check those links on magiclibraries.net. . .

  • posted a message on Stealth / hidden flavor text?
    (Forgive me if this has already been mentioned; I did a search and couldn't find a thread, or even a post, about it.)

    Has Wizards of the Coast begun making flavor text for every card without flavor text actually printed on it? Here's what I mean: Take a look at the Gatherer entry for Pariah, at: http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=135248 . You'll notice that it has flavor text assigned to it and listed to the right, specifically:
    "Why would I consider penance for my actions when I have so many subjects willing to do it for me?"
    —Lord Konda
    This flavor text doesn't appear on the actual card itself.

    So, is this a new trend? If so, what other cards have stealth or hidden flavor text assigned to them, viewable only in their Gatherer entries?

  • posted a message on A guild wallpaper for you
    I didn't see a thread for desktop wallpapers, so hopefully I'm okay starting this thread.

    I created the attached wallpaper out of images found on a google image search. Its resolution is 1024 width x 768 height. I have it arranged so that all images will appear above the status bar on a Windows XP operating system. The guilds are in the position found on the card Tablet of the Guilds.

    Enjoy!

    Thank you for the update, Nyth! I'll be sure to use that as a resource when I update the project to incorporate Conspiracy.

    For physically printed tokens the Magiccardsinfo site offers a excellent list, with great resolution pictures, maybe you could link those instead of the ones with lower quality? Just a suggestion.

    That's a good suggestion. I plan on doing it one of these days.
    Anyway, ever thought of a compilation of only tokens using the official art from MTGO?

    I'd love to, but I don't have an MTGO account and thus don't have access to any of those tokens.
    I was looking for precisely that but while this list offers some alternatives and is a good start, some of the links are down and some of the images have wrong pictures/or have a low quality. (As an example, the 1/1 green cat token uses the image that belongs to the 2/1 black cat)

    Thanks; I'll have to fix that soon.
    I have compiled some of the tokens with official pictures that I found around the internet and all the token pictures from MTGO, I could share them if you want.

    Please do! E-mail them to me at drshades1@gmail.com and I'll host and link to them.

    As the first post of this thread does not include the over-sized cards from the officially-supported alternate formats of Magic (Vanguard, Planechase, and Archenemy), I have gone through those cards to see what tokens they can produce. [SNIP!]

    Thank you; that's a helpful list.
    I am thankful for the Golem, Elemental, and Eldrazi tokens Spheniscine created earlier in this thread.

    Can you give me a link to that post?

    ANYWAY, the original post has been updated to include Born of the Gods. Yes, I'm still behind, but at least I'm making progress, right?

  • posted a message on Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker + Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni?
    Placing the "Whenever Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni deals combat damage to a player, you may put target creature card from that player's graveyard onto the battlefield under your control." ability on the stack includes choosing a target for it. The target must be a creature card in that player's graveyard, not one that will only be in that graveyard Real Soon Now. No matter which order you choose, the "Whenever Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker deals combat damage to a player, that player reveals cards from the top of his or her library until he or she reveals four land cards, then puts those cards into his or her graveyard." ability will not have resolved when you choose the target.

    Ah, that makes perfect sense.

    Thanks to the both of you for replying. I very much appreciate your having taken the time!

  • posted a message on Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker + Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni?
    Dear participants,

    Let's say I attack with Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker and Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni. They both get through and deal combat damage.

    Do both abilities trigger simultaneously, or may I choose their order? Specifically, which scenario is true:

    SCENARIO 1: When my creatures did combat damage, a "snapshot" of my opponent's graveyard was taken by each of them before any triggers, so even if Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker mills Avacyn, Angel of Hope (among other things), it's too late for me to put her on the battlefield with Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni's ability.

    SCENARIO 2: When my creatures did combat damage, I can put their triggers on the stack in the order of my choice, so I could have Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker's ability trigger first, see Avacyn, Angel of Hope get milled (among other things), then have Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni's ability trigger second, letting me put Avacyn, Angel of Hope on the battlefield.

    . . . ?

    Any help will be greatly appreciated, since I'm sure this very scenario will occur sooner or later in my playgroup.

    Thanks!
