Man.... I don't get why people are so annoyed about.Quote from Evil Never Dies »Quote from seilaoque »Quote from Evil Never Dies »Quote from andcallmedude »Can in the name of the lord somebody explain to me, what's the digital part of this card that wouldn't be "reasonably" or "logistically" be doable in paper?
It's perfectly reasonable. It simply means they are trying out new things as well. The digital environments seems like a good place to try out new things regardless whether they can be done on paper or not. "Wins" seems to imply they creature you control did not die due to state based actions immediately following the fight while the other creature did. I bet we'll see it in paper.
I will repeat myself again : this digital-only experiment is a failure that nobody likes, both on intent and execution.
I'm absolutely loving the set.
already stopped drafting AFR completely to hoard gold for a crapton of Jumpstarts.
Oh but I love the sets mechanics too. I did not say that nobody will likes the set mechanics, but that nobody will like to see those cards only with the help of binoculars, because they never will be playable in any real life format nor will ever be able to have them in their binder collection. Play hearthstone if you like digital only mechanics, Magic the Gathering is not this bull*****.
it's not like the game will be fundamentally different because a couple new mechanics that aren't really practical on paper and I think it's fine.
yeah, it's weird that some new cards are released and are not legal on Legacy or Vintage, though, but then again, just treat this as if it was a silver bordered set or something.
all the mechanics are very hard or impossible to keep track on paper, but they're still very close to what magic is and it's like that every time that WotC adds something really weird to the game... a ton of players say "OMG, we've hit rock bottom, this is the end" ahhaha
chill out, dude, it's going to turn out just fine.
