    i like her a fair amount, she takes u/g into a different direction than just about every other legend, and she's not quite as inyourface amazing at first glance as a lot of other u/g commanders but actually does a lot of work if you build around her properly

    Quote from Singe »
    Flickering Ward and Whip Silk are repeatable Auras that can generate a 1/1 token for 2 mana of the same color.


    Thank you i knew there was one out there, couldnt remember the names. Goes infinite with parallel lives/doubling season/annointed procession and earthcraft, theyre tapped but so what

    Im not sure it makes the cut in my feldon build. 3 mana is steep in a suddenly saturated market, repeatable or not.

    4 mana wrecks the playability of this card completely

    I ******* hate this cards wording. I read it incorrectly at first thinking he only had pro 2, 3, or 4, instead of the other way round

    Over half my playgroup thought the same thing the day he was spoiled

    Hes much stronger if you interpret things correctly but its just worded like sloppy ******** and confuses everyone apparently.

    Prerelease will be a blast with this dildo...

  • posted a message on Are gold-bordered cards cheating?
    myself, and the majority of the group i play in, don't care. aside from the back and the border they're a thing that was made by wotc and otherwise looks exactly like the real thing. they're actually the only real proxy type thing none of us have a problem with at all. that's been pretty universal. almost everything else has had someone bitch about them at some point, but the gold border cards has never rankled anyone's ass.

    that said i can see where some people might disagree and view it as a proxy but i don't know if that's a fair assessment of them given that they're not fake, and represent the actual card. it's a lot different to show up with a computer print out, or write time twister on a forest. i guess to me they're not much different than an alter.

    i think the first mode is just fine.

    i've had plenty of games where i've got a grip full of small removal spells, neither player has creatures in play, and my opponent is too high in life to burn out. this lets me swing into their face in that situation.

  • posted a message on annoying habits of players
    people who do something like cast oblivion ring and announce their target as the card hits the table, then argue you can't counter it. similarly people who put triggers on the stack, and then act as if all of those triggers resolved already announcing their targets, then don't understand how you can respond. for example lets say they have brago and detention sphere, instead of saying blink detention sphere with brago's effect, its instead: blink detention sphere target that creature. then they argue the effect still happens even if you kgrip in response to bragos blink trigger because they already announced the target. so essentially, playing the game like their opponents don't exist and not recognizing priority.

    also pile shuffling. stop wasting time. this isn't effective.

    and lastly, take backs. i ******* hate take backs. i will never let you do them unless its a casual nothing on the line learning game, and even then i generally won't because you won't learn if you get to take things back.

    for example, player casts a 5 drop creature and says pass, then goes well actually i want to do this other thing instead and picks up the creature they just played to try and do the other thing. no. sorry not sorry, you announced the spell, you let it hit the table. its done. be better.

    oh, and players who gloat about how great their cards/deck are... without evaluating the field. like sure, you're beating me in the face for 6 with rakdos lord of riots every turn, but guess who has also drawn 6 lands in a row with nothing in hand. don't. be. an. ********.

    I like her a fair bit. Plus she can be a house given enough devotion to blue

    I love her art, and her blink ability.

    I think the tap ability was unnecessary and is over costed. Couldve been almost anything else

    This feels sloppy, stupid, and exactly what everyone doesnt want for rw legends.
