    If you told 14-year-old me that someday there would be an official LotR Magic expansion, my head would have exploded.

    And if you told me people would be complaining about it, my head would reform specifically so it could explode a second time.

    It is not hyperbole when I say that I don't think I've ever been so excited for an expansion.

    Remember folks Whisper, Blood Liturgist is a card...

    so she is pretty easy to reanimate.

    Yeah, this. I mean, if you aren't dumping creatures with comes-into-play effects into your graveyard and reanimating them over and over, what are you even doing playing Golgari? CMC shouldn't be an issue because you're hardly ever going to be hard-casting it.

    This woman is not Huatli. She's not even human. She's an angel. YOU CAN SEE THE WINGS!

    I also don't think it's Huatli, but I am pretty sure she is a knight, not an Angel. I think she is standing next to a horse.


    Yeah, that's what it looks like to me. Although there is a legendary angel in the set!

    posted a message on Narset in Dominaria?
    Even if this is Narset, the illustration seems more liable to be for a spell card than anything else. We're already well set for PW's, between Jaya, Karn, and the Gatewatch, so tossing Narset in there seems arbitrary and out of place.

    posted a message on Legendary, Planeswalker Uniqueness, and Sideboarding Rules Changed
    I'm not sure how this will affect my playing experience, since my friends and I don't have a lot of the same legendaries or planeswalkers, but anything that causes this much uproar in the T2 scene has got to be good.

    posted a message on The Tag-Team Tournament of Champions (Preliminaries)
    Quote from Poring
    For the record, I don't believe a Lightsaber could cut through Captain America's shield (my personal opinion, certainly not a ruling for this Tournament). There is evidence in the Star Wars universe that a sufficiently thick metal (like the blast doors in Episode I) would hinder a lightsaber from being able to cut clean through it without effort by a determined Jedi. There is also at least one instance of another non-lightsaber object being able to block a lightsaber swing (as seen in Episode III when the bodyguards of Grievous attack Anakin and Obi-Wan using those double ended energy weapons). I'd wager that Captain America's shield would be able to block/deflect a lightsaber attack, but that's just me. :p


    I agree. Mandalorian armor was able to turn away lightsabers as well, and Cap's shield is tougher than both adamantium and vibranium - it usually takes a god-level being (like Loki, or Thanos with the Infinity Gauntlet) to break it. In fact, IIRC, it's stood up to blasts from Heralds of Galactus. I don't think a lightsaber has more juice than a burst of the Power Cosmic.

    You make a very good point there, Poring. I will concede that Aang would not go all-out in that situation, and neither would Cap. There are plenty of ways they could take the fight out of X and Samus without killing them, and that's what they'd spend their prep time brainstorming.

    posted a message on What's Yu-Gi-Oh like?
    Yugioh is basically COMBOS COMBOS COMBOS and, "Screw the rules, I have money."

    I once had a Yugioh player at my old LGS ask me about Magic. I told him that it was what Yugioh wanted to be when it grew up.
