    All I have to do now is patiently wait two months for people to come back to FNM
    People actually stopped coming to FNMs because of the tokens, and you expect them to come back when promo cards return? Who are all these people that only come to FNMs for the chance of winning a foil alternate art Noose Constrictor? I have such a hard time accepting the narrative that FNM promos have a huge impact on attendance, except maybe the cream of the crop like Push and Path.

    Some competitive players like to play fancy, competitive cards.

    When you remove the "competitive" pool of players from attending FNM, you don't even have enough people to run FNM half of the time.

    I don't play Standard, so typically don't go to FNMs, but when Path and Serums were up for grabs, the stores were packed, and I made sure I had a deck to attend those. Promos definitely drive attendance. Especially when they're 5$+ bills.

    2) Convoy_Avenger
    Flickerwisp / Parallax Tide / Parallax Wave

    1) CalvinSchwa :: Gollum and the Ring
    Daze / Goblin Settler / Sol Ring

    0-6, Locks me out.


    3) Magus of the Aesthetic
    Ashen Rider / Lion's Eye Diamond / Unburial Rites

    0-6, Locks me out.

    4) ManyCookies
    Catch // Release / Kolaghan's Command / Nantuko Tracer

    Surprisingly complex. Give me a few.

    5) superbajt
    Angrath, the Flame-Chained / Oath of Gideon / Sol Ring

    I think this is 2-2. I don't play Flickerwisp until you play Angrath (because that can lock him out for the rest of the game) You play your Oath, and I exile them. Neither of us can advance our board state without losing.

    6) Tatterhood
    Echoing Truth / Eternal Witness / Time Walk

    0-6, Locks me out

    7) tomsloger
    Akroma, Angel of Fury / Mana Drain / Mana Drain

    0-6, This is just hilariously "Fair" good against me.

    8) WhammeWhamme
    Arcane Denial / Legion's Landing / Venser, Shaper Savant

    0-6, Yup

    ManyCookies is complex, but since I did so poorly, not sure it's worth figuring out!

    superbajt, don't think you win those, think it's stalemate.

    I knew going into this hand, that there was some busted combo potential, but I didn't want to waste brain power trying to figure something out, so I went with a silly list. Ramping wouldn't have given me a reasonable way to win (I guess I could have gone for a Draw approach) . But I wasn't fishing for points, so *shrug*

    I point out in a bit.

    There's certainly seems to be a disconnect with what they think people want, what sorts of people that go to FNM, and the people who actually absorb their announcements.

  • posted a message on Marit lage reappearance soon?
    Yeah, Maro's maybe just means "I'm not ruling out the possibility they we will never see her again, ever."



    Certainly doesn't mean she'll be seen any time soon.

    vs. 5 Arboria / Gideon of the Trails / Helix Pinnacle, turn 2 Battlemage means it's going to be just Gideon no matter what – if Pinnacle is played, Gideon and Arboria are discarded, and I race Pinnacle easily. And if Gideon tries to win, I just kill it. So instead Gideon +1s forever and we draw.



    I don't need to +1 for literally forever, I need to +1 long enough till I have enough Loyalty counters(15ish) to attack you to death without losing Gideon.


    Quote from WhammeWhamme »


    vs. 05 Convoy_Avenger: OTP discard hits all, OTD Gids wins. 3-3



    You OTP:
    T1: Land, Tar Pit, Piracy Charm (Arboria)
    T2: Land, Journey
    T3: Land, Piracy Charm (Pinnacle)
    I play Gideon, same shenanigans as Personman, I just need to go up to higher loyalty.

    How do you hit all 3 things?

    @Anchronity - He can Black Sun nearly every turn to keep you free of vamps.

    Instead of "Early Pick", you could throw a Cogwork Librarian into the draftable pool. Give some players individually more options? (Or call the format Cogwork)

    This doesn't seem that great. Playing it turn 3 isn't going to net you anything grand.

    Playing it in a later turn, if you're copying your opponents creatures, you might have to sacrifice one of your own to get the Raid trigger - which is an alt cost to the 3 mana investment. If you have the best creature on the board, then seems a bit win-more.

    Convoy Avenger's line:

    01: Colonnade goes down with another land for protection, Grasp of Fate exiles Epoch.
    02: Turn 3 Liliana makes enough Zombies to overwhelm Epochrasite.
    04: Elderscale Wurm comes down fast enough off lands.
    05: Knobbodi: Nyxathid is bigger than Epochrasite and Mire's Toll can hit a slow Smallpox.
    06: Factory and Grasp of Fate get 'er done.
    07: Ajani is good to drop on an empty board, Silumgar beats 4/4 Epoch.
    08: Aurification locks out Epochrasite, Colonnade beats.



    Thanks for this.
    Yup, my hand was awful I guess!

    0 points? That doesn't seem quite right.. I'll figure it out tomorrow.

    Seems like my hand did better than I was expecting. I'll be back to score it later unless everyone beats me to it.
