Feb 9, 2018Posted in: Baseless SpeculationQuote from JinxedIdol »This is a great FTV idea. Somehow I imagine it to have 20 cards, with both combo pieces in the box. (Maybe some 3 card combos also)
Channel - Fireball
Saheeli Rai - Felidar Guardian
Deciever Exarch - Splinter twin
Bonus points if the new art matches the combo. It would be great if Splinter twin art depicts an Deciever Exarch; or Channel - Fireball a diptych of A wizard channeling life into mana and then in the next frame turning it into a fireball. Or Animate dead depicting a Worldgorger Dragon
I think your art idea is fantastic. Similar to panoramic lands or the latest SDCC Planeswalkers. Very cool idea.
Jan 18, 2018Dungeon Lurker posted a message on Gavin Varhey confirms change of course for Masters sets.Posted in: The Rumor MillQuote from Reesepuff »I wonder which defining cards this set will have. It’s gotta be something from portal three kingdoms. Are they ever able to do some kind of masterpiece set for say dual lands in masters 25 since it’s not technically a reprint?
Doing so would actually violate the reserved list. This happened with an early Duel Deck and FTV and people were not happy. So no Masterpiece Duals.
My question is: what exactly upset people about Iconic Masters? I drafted it twice and enjoyed it. But it seems as though there was a lot of outrage. Would anyone want to clue me in? I’m very curious to know what Gavin is saying.

To be fair, he's at least claimed that he's also now received death threats. Violence, or threat of violence, on either side is unjustifiable.Quote from Dungeon Lurker »It’s obvious what each of us think is highly suggestive so this conversation ultimately does not need to happy. You, I and every other human being on the planet, have a different definition of emotion and sensetivity and reaction. So whatever. The problem though is even if you believe Sprankle’s initial cosplay video was too emotional and her being a baby, how on earth do Jeremy and his followers responses to that align with rational? Is the harassment she has suffered really okay because of a video you claim was too over emotional? I don’t understand. None of her side of this has had any threat of violence. His has. He’s enabling violence and harassment by regurgitating his hateful bull***** into the gaping mouths of his followers.
Gotcha, didn’t know that. Thanks for the info

It's about reason and rationale.

So why do you agree with him, and what are you agreeing with in particular?
Fair question, and I am trying to answer in accordance with the thread's guidelines:
I watched the video by Sprankle months ago where she discussed how she was not paid to cosplay at major events. Her costumes, travel, lodging was all paid out of pocket, and that she was losing the ability to afford to do this. That is no one's fault but her own. Personally, I hate what Patreon has done, turning people into virtual panhandlers wanting their hobbies funded by strangers. And yes, that extends to Jeremy, who I do not support on Patreon. She began to cry, and all I could think was "this is not my problem." Jeremy took a very similar stance, while also making the claim that she was only getting support by way of being one of the few instances of a woman involved with MtG who may be considered cute by the general public. Personally, I agree with that too but realize it is only speculation. I think he's been critical, but nothing that I would consider harassment. The goalposts have been moved, I think too far, for where criticism and mockery becomes harassment. Everyone's emotions are within his or her control, barring illness or injury. If someone upsets me, which hell happens all the time, I'm mad for about five minutes then say "good thing it won't affect my physical safety or wallet" and move on. Too many people now get upset, then demand retribution that anyone dared be remotely mean.
I think the entire culture of "this person sent a hatemob after me" needs to end. People should be held accountable for their own actions. Anyone who made any sort of threat of violence is wrong, but the only person responsible in such a case is the person who sent the threat. It's easier to point to a content creator, because you know their face and name. Doesn't make it the correct move.
EDIT: I did not see purklefluff's comment. the correct response to someone being upset is not always to apologize if that emotional response isn't reasonable. Again, the goalposts culturally of reasonable emotional reactions is moving, and I don't think in a wise way.
I’ll never understand why people think it’s acceptable to tell others how to feel. Just because your reaction to a situation is brushing it off within 5 minutes doesn’t mean that is how it has to be for every other person. If someone has a response you do not deem “reasonable,” that is your fault, not theirs.
Nov 27, 2017Posted in: Magic GeneralQuote from Teia Rabishu »Quote from RxPhantom »However, this noble goal of self-reflection you espouse is undermined when the rules of engagement boil down to "agree or don't post."
If someone can't agree that hatred and misogyny have no place on MTGSalvation, then there's no place on MTGSalvation for them. Speaking in defense of those things is not "healthy discourse" and we aren't going to play some kind of false equivalency game and pretend otherwise.
Pretty much how I see this. It’s beyond the point of needing to hear the other side. We get it. We see it every day. We can watch Jeremy’s videos, look at his tweets, go on reddit, etc. We do not need to have this evil other side to have the discussion. It’s past that.
