    The article is up: https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/making-magic/project-booster-fun-2019-07-20

    The link is up. Says Access is denied when I click on it. I am sure that will change in a few minutes.


    Yeah, I can't access it either


    Me neither. This company really can't do anything right with websites... maybe we'll get an uncut sheet for trying to access the page when they told us to...

    He was dead. As soon as you try to draw and you can't, you're dead. So you never get to the "put two back" part. Sorry, your friend hosed you.

    The actual card has the reminder text. OP didn't put it for brevity.

    Signets > Talismans in most situations. Fixes mana for no life. Sure there are corner cases, but unless you need that colorless mana from Talismans, signets win 90% of the time.

  • posted a message on MPL weekly stream preview card - Sword of sinew and Steel (Rakdos sword)
    It obviously doesn't have to target anything given the wording. Same wording they've used 100 times already. Case closed.

    On to more important things. The most epic name for the BR sword has always been "Sword of Death and Destruction". And then they further troll us by literally making a sword that causes death (kill a walker) and destruction (destroy an artifact) but call it neither of those things!

    I propose this sword henceforth be called Sword of Death and Destruction instead of the fail name they printed on it. (All swords are made of steel. And sinew, being muscle, leans green.)

    According to Maro, not all five ally swords will be in MH1. Looks like this cycle will take 2-5 years to finish.


    Any source on that?

    Finally! Swords are so pretty (and fun!). Probably only 2-3 in this set and then the other 3 in Modern Horizons 2 / Commander / something? Are we going back to Phyrexia soon and they'll put the swords there? Hhhmmmmm...

    We already have two white mythics and two green mythics. I don't see how it would work unless they downshift and print the swords at rare.


    Hmm yeah hadn't realized the two mythics today were both green. Either of which could have been at rare, also, but that's neither here nor there.

    Downshifted to rares would be the best case! Not in the set would suck (for me). I guess there could be a whole lot of Thran artifacts in those SC-Z artifact slots? We'll see by next week...

    Allied Swords looking very likely from the number crunch. 1 Mythic per color, 2 walkers, Mox, Morpheon, First Sliver. Looks good. Plus 7 Artifacts after SCRAPYARD in number crunch.

    I certainly hope so because this is the most logical place to complete a 15-year mega cycle! One a week next week as our final 5 mythics (with Yawgmoth). I like it! Fingers crossed.

    Sacrificing at the beginning of your upkeep makes this so much worse. You can't sneak into play at end of turn and attack the next turn.


    They have haste. Just play precombat main (for full cost) if you want to attack. Much less sneaky, though.

    Humans are going to Aether Vial stuff on your turn, and if they suspect you of having this card they'll name it off Meddling Mage.


    "Meddling Mage stops it" has to be the only argument worse than "dies to removal!"

    You, sir, have won the internet for today!

    This whole cycle is predominantly designed to stop combo. Otherwise, it's just card disadvantage against fair decks. 100% sideboard card, but effective against the right matchup.

    Wait, you've only been playing for 6 weeks and you're already sick of Planeswalkers? lol. You're in for a long year and a half until 2020 rotation. Maybe take up a different hobby? Racketball? Dungeons and Dragons? Ballroom dancing?? Anything!

    But complaining about the game when you're 40 days into playing it... geez... just quit and play something else that doesn't aggravate you. And spare us all your indignation.

  • posted a message on So how much money have you spent on Magic?
    I'm one of those outliers. I have one of pretty much everything, multiple playsets of things (I don't like to break up decks). Collect masterpieces, mythic editions, etc. Probably spend 500$-1,000$ a month on Magic. But it's my favorite hobby and I refuse to try to turn a profit. Just like to collect and play.

    If it's money I never get back, I enjoyed the entire thing. If I somehow end up making money on the cards (when I quit or, more likely, die), so much the better for my inheritance.

  • posted a message on Arena is like built for Brawl...
    Brawl sucks.

    Have you ever gone back to look at sets after they rotate and all the cards are worth 1/4 of what they were when standard legal (except for a handful of modern staples). Why have a mini-EDH format with only the most overpriced cards legal? It was the catchiest of cash grabs and I'm glad most people saw through it and stuck with EDH and its massive card pool.

    It could work on Arena, they already have singleton weekends, though, which is close enough. If I never hear about Brawl again, I'll be happy.
