Jun 24, 2019Ahhhhh... so many times you get to the exact number for the PW ultimate and you sit and ponder... do it now or wait a turn when it has more loyalty. Well, this can solve that dilemma, or just get back your 2 best beaters after a Wrath is played.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Jun 24, 2019I know it's the flavor of Boros, but I really dislike that the tokens ETB attacking. I have noticed a majority of the time they get blocked by bigger dudes or get chumped. The only plus side to this is that it gets around Propaganda-like affects. Now if Divine Visitation is in play, that's another story... and I had to beat him to death with my own shoe...Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Jun 23, 2019Wow, interesting design here, playing w/ different casting costs. Too bad Tiny Leaders has fallen by the wayside, this can be fun w/ costs like: B, 1, BB, 1B, 2, BBB, 2B, 1BB, and 3. That right there is nine +1/+1 counters.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Jun 23, 2019The part of this card that is killing me is the damn high cost. I'd play this in a casual deck or in Commander, but that nasty high cost just tells me it's a limited bomb (what, you target my dude? I sac him, ditch a land and get a 5/5 flyer out of it... wait, what do you mean we're 10 turns in???)Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Jun 22, 2019Oh, Master Planeswalker Hill, thank you for sharing with us your favorite Commander themed/colored deck: mono-green!!! Anyone one else on the same page as I am about now wanting to square off against Kyle in a match or two of Commander?Posted in: Commander (EDH)
Now, curious: has anyone played against Kyle in a game of Commander?
If so, what was his general? And if no one has, let's take a guess at who his Commander is... I am betting on Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma or Omnath, Locus of Mana.
NOTE: wasn't too sure if this was best in Commander or Entertainment... but chose here because of its topic
Jun 21, 2019Stoogeslap posted a message on Why is our community moving to two sites? What's the benefit?Interesting question. Fresh starts are typically welcomed, as content creators, UI developers, members and staff can take what was learned over the span of the old site's life and apply that learned info on a new platform.Posted in: Magic General
A lot of small questions will come up regarding features from here and when and how will they be implemented. I hope to see a trade system (cross compatible w/ Puca Trade files or the like would vastly speed up profile creation). Also hope a Holiday Gift Exchange comes back (if both sites host, will just have to split up my 4 - 6 cards I make).
Noticed this post got some attention right away, yet my post from last week still has zero responses about the new site... even if it isn't up or the name is still unknown, that is useful info. I hoping for a known time line, that's all. Really.
Jun 19, 2019I distinctly remember in a post (early on) that Previews will be 1 week only; grunts and complaints soon followed.Posted in: Magic General
Now we are 97 cards in, only 2 days left in this week for previews. Starting to feel like previews will be 2 weeks, not 1. It's a good thing (IMO), but what gives with the miscommunication... or did I not get the memo?
Jun 19, 2019Stoogeslap posted a message on What are your thoughts on black is gonna learn how to remove enchantmentI am guessin' that to keep it on flavor, it would require sacrificing a permanent or spending life as additional costs. Personally, I do not like it, as it would give too much to black, which (mostly) dips into most color pie features. Such as:Posted in: Magic General
Board wipe removal
Flyers (weenies + big boys)
Creature stealing (Ritual of the Machine and New Blood among others)
Artifact destruction (Gate to Phyrexia and some obscure 1-shot from the past, can't remember the name)
Massive bodies beasts
And now a black source Proliferate w/ Yawgmoth
Black even has a couple counter spells and a fog spell
How many other colors can take that claim?
So I really hope black doesn't have access to enchantment removal by itself. At the most, it will be a white or green activation cost on a black card.
Jun 18, 2019Posted in: The Rumor MillQuote from The Fluff »two bodies for three mana, and a decent ability if you can pay 4. Seems good.
Because 7 mana for two 1/1's is acceptable, lol- no thanks. If it was something like a 1/1 for 3, then sac it for 1/1 flyers, then exile it for another 1/1 flyer, then I would find it useful. But this feels like something out of a Portal set.
Jun 18, 2019To go from MH1 to Core 2020 feels like an emotional roller coaster, with highs and lows. I get it that they both are of two different experience levels and the Modern set's overall strength is miles above, but this just feels like all of R&D's creative juices were wrung out and this is just lazy design. Even in limited this could be part of the last 5 cards picked.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Jun 18, 2019Stoogeslap posted a message on When will the new site be up and running and how to create a new profilePardon me if I have missed anything from all of the threads/info given on the new site (I am tired and need more sleep, hence the laziness - sorry, quite blunt)... But... is the new site ready? Can I/we get a link? Also (IF it is up and running), where @ said site do we go to create a new profile...Posted in: Magic General
I'm just a little lost here since the news of "A New and Exciting Beginning" was published here, I read that this site was sold, right? So (w/o having to go back and reread the article), will this site still be up and moving w/ old and/or new mods? Did we (pretty much) just split the party?
I believe my confusion is justified by my naive observations and crossed-wires...
Thanks for any clarification.
May 29, 2019For those of us who have racked up thousands of answers and have the little note on our handle (so to speak) that shows how long we have been a member (I take pride that I have been part of this community since 2007 and have way over 3,000 posts), my big question is this: Will the new site be a blank slate where we all (including mods) are starting from scratch as "new members: or can we have the recognition from this site carried over?Posted in: The Rumor Mill

Nov 27, 2018This has been a lot of fun each year that I have participated. I'd like to re-emphasize a point: please make sure you chose a nice, playable card. As silly as Vizzerdrix is, this over-costed vanilla blue dude is not playable, no matter how much you dress him up as Santa. I am not naming names, but I have gotten some really meh cards in the past that are still collecting cob webs in my binder. The card(s) do not necessarily need to be valuable, but at the least playable. You know how stokes I would be if I got a Sign in Blood that is pimped out.Posted in: Articles
Also (luckily I haven't seen this), please do not decorate HP or damaged cards. All the gorgeous artwork isn't going to make up for a crease from being bent in half or cover up the hole marks when your dog bit your Lightning Bolt.
Please do not cover up the text box w/ art or anything else. We will have seasoned players as well as the novice players (possibly) participating. Most of us know how Counterspell or Swords to Plowshares works, but some newer players who might be starting off w/ Standard may not know these cards, no matter how classic they are.
And lastly, this is important too, please takes photos of your cards before sending out because not everyone will post scans of what they got. I made this mistake last year and the lucky geek who got my alters still hasn't posted them (if you are reading this, it's never too late, lol).
Look forward to a lot (I hope) of participants. Let's make this the best Holiday Card Exchange the best one yet!!!
Feb 7, 2014My gripes that I hope will/can be fixed:Posted in: Announcements
- Custom titles for the "archmage overlords" have been snipped to 30 characters or less and (to my experience), cannot have a color outside of black.
- Where did the itrader go? I used that a lot... needs to come back. I found something similar, but it asks for "one card" I am looking for. itrader could search up to 10 cards.
- The "curse premium" ad on the top... do not like to see a reminder about a service with a fee that doesn't add much to this particular site
- Thread that have new posts are no longer bolded... the bolded look gave a visual clue to new posts in the thread that I (the current user) has not seen.
- So far, there's not area/section at the bottom of a thread listing the members and guests reading/reviewing the thread.
- The fonts are too light (for the light skin). I'd like to see the fonts darken up a bit for easiness to read. The fonts are too thin as a whole, which makes the black appear dark gray.
- The "would you still like to leave this site..." Y/N bubble when going to a linked site. It is unnecessary.
- So far an image has to be really tiny to upload... a 16.2kb jpeg was "too big" to upload... what gives?
Feb 4, 2014My favorite card is Sensei's Divining Top... just being able to see what's coming to anticipate the new few moves is a big help. I actually played it a few nights ago in a casual game verses my girlfriend, and she actually voiced that she didn't like the card. She knew right away the edge it was giving me... and she's a new player!Posted in: Announcements
