    Read some history and look at the context about the format of the time it was made. Look at who made the format. Look at why. It will enlighten your perspective and give you some basis to form an argument. Right now you are not making coherent arguments regarding the format. We here are seeing complaints about your LGS, in this thread's current form.
    Hipster movement done by judges who didn't like how everyone played what was meta/mainstream in competitive environments.

    This. Also WoTC "officially" supporting it was just a marketing move. Has zero to do with game balance.

    Also I left my LGS a long time ago since it was infested with EDH players. Hanging out with neckbeards who take themselves too seriously is not fun. Magic is not that damn serious unless going to your LGS is your whole life.
    Gets more poignant when you consider that EDH/Commander was a counterculture thing. It then got co-opted by advertisements and merchandise created by Wizards. Casual outside of EDH is practically a wasteland. As to take some lyrics from Smash Mouth's "Walking on the Sun" which is about the same subject matter involving the hippie movement and anti-vietnam rhetoric at the time:

    Some were spellbound, some were hell bound
    Some they fell down and some got back up
    And fought back against the melt-down
    And their kids were hippie chicks or hypocrites
    Because fashion is smashin' the true meaning of it
    So don't delay, act now, supplies are running out
    Allow if you're still alive, six to eight years to arrive
    And if you follow, there may be a tomorrow
    But if the offer is shun, you might as well be walkin' on the sun

    EDH isnt really casual though. Most of the people who play it are hardcore magic players and the format is terrible for beginners. Its just most of the EDH players were bad at competitive play and want a space to where they can warp the rules that suite them. If EDH was a person, it would like Yugi from yugioh when he makes up his own rules to beat whoever he is playing against. Its mental and you have to be kinda mental to be into it.

    May I ask what rules you believe are being warped? Do you mean people are actually not following the rules of the card game? as in mechanics and interactions? or is this a statement towards your aforementioned politics?

    I really want some snow commanders and repints of snow lands/ Scrying sheets. Even though im 90% sure they won't lol

    I loved all the derpy snow creatures and almost every card in coldsnap/ ice age. plus I'd love a new version of Marton Stromgald and Lovisa Coldeyes.

    I also think it would be neat to get a new Zirilan of the claw or a Hivis of the scale Also sure this won't happen, but i'm a nerd for Viashino's, and If I can dream for Viashino Tribal I will.

    And last on my hopeless jank list is a new version of Thriss, Nantuko Primus. I love Nantuko's and I think there is such a good potential for a better updated Nantuko lord.

    Yep, its available only for the 27th of January. I hate that Wizards is coming out with one again so soon, but I do love the new rats.

    I think it might be hard to justify a full snow-themed expansion at this juncture, but something tells me we'll get a snow supplemental set at some point soon.

    May I ask why you think we will get a snow supplemental? and what do you think that product might look like?

  • posted a message on WINTER IS COMING!!!
    I'd also personally love to see some new barbarians and possibly some new arts and creatures inspired by norse mythology (not sure how ell that'd fit into the story of that plane though)

    I feel like eventually we are going to take another trip to a snow set like Coldsnap and Ice Age. It would be a welcome change up from what we have been seeing. But what do you guys think? What would you like to see in a new snow set? More Kjeldoran cards? A new Marton(the now zombie-fied one). Lovisa or some ancestor of her? Personally I would love full art snow lands.

    Dialogue is dead. Democracy is failing.

    You're side is not interested in dialogue. Only lambasting the other side and forcing your ideas on them. You never compromise and everything is in absolutes. Look at this thread - still at it eh

    My side is not interested in fairy tales:
    1. That you can cut taxes & increase government revenue at the same time
    2. That building a wall will solve our problems
    3. That evolution is not the way the world works
    4. That global warming is just a "theory"

    There's a world. It works in measurable, understandable ways. Science & Data allow us to determine what affect our actions have on the world. No amount of bloviating will change that. If you want to be a conservative within the bounds of how systems and the world works, then fine, we can hash it out and have a conversation. If you want to totally ignore all of that, then, yeah it's going to be hard for us to talk.

    For 8 years republicans refused to do their jobs. To compromise to do anything. They took the ball and sat on it. And now we've handed the whole country over to them without any stop gaps. Whatever they do in the next 4 years is totally their own decision. They won't consult us. They won't compromise. Maybe it won't be that bad, but history suggests otherwise.

    1. Deregulation between the 70s & 90s has caused measurable damage to our economy. And austerity now will do that again
    2. 20 million people losing health care may spare a few from losing their businesses, but it'll cause way more to suffer in medical bankruptcy, and we'll return to an extreme path of medical debt
    3. Breaking up children from their families will cause broken families and create more poverty
    4. Doing nothing about global warming will destabilize ecosystems and drown our coastal cities. The xkcd comic shows just how uncharted this territory is. There's some truth that some adaptation will happen, but we're in the largest species die off since the last mass extinction and the acidification of the oceans is going to have real consequence. Opening up the remaining oil reserves might just making things worse (best case) or they might totally tip the scales on Armageddon.
    5. Growing the wealth gap with regressive government policies will feel pretty good in the immediate, but this populist uprising isn't going away. We elected wolves and an alpha wolf to curb the wolves, and that's throwing bad after bad.

    Also, if your argument is that this is a Christian country. I'm not interested because it's not.
    If your argument is that Social Justice is awful, I'm not interested because Social Justice is just making sure everyone is treated equally under the law, a ******* normal endeavor totally in line with our values that was created by judeo-christian orthodoxy.

    If I'd heard anything resembling a plan in the last 8 years instead of a bunch of moaning and grumbling then maybe I'd take the other side seriously. Instead, all I heard was that my pres was from Kenya, that I was trying to ruin America, and that human beings should be treated as less than. That this was a Christian country with a capital C and if I didn't like I could move the **** out. I heard, "Liberals can't get anything done" while the republicans held congress and refused to do anything other than investigate Benghazi 12 times and pass pointless Obamacare repeal after repeal. And then they degenerated into chanting "Lock Her Up!"

    I'm sorry. Are you really claiming that you want to talk to me? Because I don't believe you.

    You have some great points, we ARE NOT a christian country, **** the christians, **** the jews, **** the muslims, **** every GODDAMN mono-theist alive in the whole damn world.

    Sorry had to get that out after the last few days, people really need to start taking a super deep look at Ancient Astronaut theory and reconcile religion/science for good

    So we are only saying **** to monotheists? seems unfair to me.
