Jan 15, 2021Stoogeslap posted a message on [KHM] Battlefield Raptor and Story Seeker— Kitboga previewsPretty strong in limited. Especially if that bird gets equipped.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Jan 14, 2021Stoogeslap posted a message on [KHM] Axgard Braggart, Fearless Liberator, and Vault Robber— Jim Davis previewsReally digging the boast keyword... even on commons it feels pretty powerful. Even the white boast common here feels stronger than the uncommon w/ boast. The white one get's pseudo-vigilance with a +1/+1 counter that keeps growing.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
The treasure making dwarf is cool, as red normally doesn't play w/ red creatures in the graveyard, so should be a great way to make treasure tokens.
Jan 14, 2021Stoogeslap posted a message on [KHM] In Search of Greatness— Duende Gaming previewJust about the worst looking art I have seen in a while... it's looks like it was done by a grade-school student w/ Sharpie markers and an ink pen.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Jan 13, 2021Stoogeslap posted a message on [KLD] Foretell keyword interactions & a cure for the confusion I feel for itTrying to see what older cards interact w/ a face-down, not yet in the game creatures. First I was thinking Riftsweeper, but that's face-up.Posted in: Rumored Card Rulings
To hone in my research, what zone would a card w/ foretell be in when it's placed face down? Or is it just in limbo such as cards that have been phased out.
Is it considered exiled? And when should it be countered: when it's place faced down or when the rest of it's cost is played? I think the core question is when the foretell cost is initially played, how can the owner of the card or the opponent interact with it?
Jan 11, 2021So, a common is now (for the most part) better than a popular rare (Vraska's Contempt), as the 2 life gain doesn't make this any less than the rare version. Talk about the power creep, lol...Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Jan 10, 2021I am always entertained when themes in media appear. In the past volcano-based movies have appeared twice in one year, while another year had insect-based cartoons hit the theaters ("A Bugs Life" and "Antz"). I don't know if it's a coincidence or somewhat planned (art imitating life and/or vise versa?)Posted in: Magic General
Even though (technically) Assassin's Creed: Valhalla was released Nov. 2020, it is really a 2021 title; with players just now digging into the game & critics writing and/or publishing articles (just a read a review in Game Spot).
Then we have this new set that looks jaw-dropping fun, Kaldheim being released in the cold month of February (wondering if that was planned for the flavor of it...?).
And (hopefully) a game that I am one of the designers for has a 2021 release, which is aptly titled Twilight of the Gods (it has been out for 5 years now, but a new expansion for this expandable card game [you get all of the cards in the set when you buy it, no booster packs; just a different style of distribution of the product]. Now Twilight of the Gods (TotG for short), is not just about Norse mythology, but incorporates many Gods & mythical beasts from our own worlds religions, civilizations & mythologies. And no, this isn't meant to be a plug for my game; we haven't even been told when the Kickstarter is happening (we, the design team) only got an email from our publisher telling us that production of their various games is starting up again after a very sluggish 2020 & we're now part of the pipeline of their release calendared).
BTW (this part is sort of a plug...): you can look us up, Twilight of the Gods, on Amazon and the boardgame website, boardgamegeek.com
But back to my topic, anyone else agree this is the year of the Vikings? Am I missing any other Viking inspired or related media coming out this year?
Jan 8, 2021Posted in: The Rumor MillQuote from PigmyWurm »Is appears to be the first time blue gets to permanently destroy/exile an artifact. Not bounce/tuck/steal/counter but actually get rid of it. Not sure how I feel about that.
I wouldn't necessarily say it break the color wheel. I think there are some very creative ways to give out of color abilities and synergies while still keeping the flavor. I remember when Unyaro Bee Sting came out in Mirage I thought it's too bad green doesn't have decent creature removal, just a sorcery that cost 4 & cards like this... then green got the fight mechanic and the ability for a creature to deal damage equal to it's power to another.
Here we have an exile effect, such as it is found in white, getting a blue spin on it. Reminds me of Afterlife, but trade instant speed for sorcery speed, but also able to hit artifacts.
This might be one of my new favorite blue commons; will probably go in ALL of my Commander decks that run blue.
Jan 8, 2021Ummm... chase common, lol? Quite a power house at common for blue. Hell yeah I'll trade you down your massive beast or combo artifact piece for a measly 1/1 flyer.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Maybe not right away, but I expect foils in this to hit the $1+ range.
Jan 7, 2021How come the Kaldheim visual spoiler hasn't been updated since Dec. 30th of last year (get a kick out of saying "last year"...)? It's as if the "leaked" cards aren't considered 100%.. but I really see it as lazy mods. This website used to have much more active mods. Feels like the ghost of what it used to be... On the bright side, at least it's more active than the other pseudo site, MTG Nexus... that's place has les life than Bodi Ghost Town.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Dec 25, 2020I know no one really posts here anymore, but curious if anyone has seen any eBay discount promotions? Since we're coming upon the end of the year and we have a new set coming, it'd be nice to be able to get it for less than retail.Posted in: Market Street Café
Dec 23, 2020So, what are the rules/laws here w/ "accidental" cards ending up in current packs? We know WotC does this to slip previews into the masses; but what would happen if the owner of both of these wanted to take advantage of "owning" the ONLY KHM singles a month in advance by throwing them on eBay? Can the owner put them on eBay and sell Vorinclex for $50? I know may would jump on the chance to play w/ one of these casually ahead of time.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Gray areas... gray areas...
Dec 16, 2020Hey Wizards, please thank your design team for making even more tough decisions, lol... Love the card but will have a hell of a time deciding which side to play.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
On a Commander note.. do we now have an equipment that can be played as our Commander (for when we cast it, I know it's the Legendary God side when in the Command Zone)?
Oct 31, 2020Posted in: The Rumor MillQuote from Xcric »way too many ways to sacrifice, kill, or bounce creatures in just about every single deck in the format.
it can be devastating if it sticks, and help neuter hands... but i just don't see it getting to that point very often outside of super casual we don't run no interaction type pods.
neat idea at least.
But it played in a Blinn deck, you'll be handing off a lot of uglies. By time you cash this they could have already depleted their hand of removal. I would also throw a little bit of bounce that can work be found in red, black and colorless, such as Dead // Gone or anything else that could be thought of. So they can either keep it on the board, save up two cards to discard and then get it sent back to them or you can help them out and get rid of their biggest nasty, returning to their hand.
There are so many other crazy evil cards that you can donate to them too. This is just part of the arsenal of "you're gunna hate me." When I build this deck, that's what I'm going to call it, lol.

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
