    It’s physically painful how much this forum sucks now


    I wish I had a playgroup (or even a play partner) anymore, but alas that isn't how things have gone in my life.
    I would love to contribute more.
    It is a shame.

    If I ever get to talk about magic to anyone, it's only about my custom card cube.

    Yeah, I tried being pleasant again but he fell into the same pattern of behavior. I finally blocked him.

    For whatever reason, our aside (which up to that point was tolerable) pushed pyredream to quit the community. Which is fine, I suppose, but it certainly came out of nowhere.

    In any case, hopefully we can get back to our regularly scheduled programming

    Also, this

    "I get that everything that's not Mulldrifter, flametounge kavu, sprout swarm, and pack rat is considered "literally unplayable garbage"

    You really just cant help yourself.

    Sorry everybody else

    Trying to be the least bit civil with you is one of the most punishing experiences.

    Enjoy your esoteric understanding of magic

    What kind of reaction was that

    If not everything has to be a good card, it's hard to communicate with you effectively. Especially when the tradeoff for good isnt even to be interesting.

    I am not in denial about a 5 mana 5/5 being unplayable in cu/be.

    Oh, it's not that the disenchant has no targets and is maybe dead (although that can be a separate issue), it's that having the disenchant in the first place, when the hammer is about to run away with the game, is up in the air.

    Why would the subtype "arcane" be of value? Are your games slow enough and is the percentage of cards in the cube that say arcane high enough for it to come up frequently?

    3) While I would accept the charge that I'm both that clever and that cheesy to say such a thing, I didn't nail that one.

    2) My issue with relying on disenchants is that it often feels like a binary issue. Do you have it y/n? Busted creatures die or are at least silenced in many ways.

    1) If erratad to not have trample, I would playtest it. It may drop to underpowered but dangerous, but my cube is underpowered anyway.

    There is no consensus on the hammer.

    Some people, such as myself, think that it is unreasonable when unanswered either by timely blowout removal or by fortunate naturalize effects. Some people think that both of those situations come up enough as to make its average case scenario fair-ish.

    I dont appreciate such swingy gameplay

    I agree with Io that salt masters question is Well within the bounds of ok to ask. I think if it was anybody else asking the question, the reaction would have been different.

    I don't like the guy any more than anybody else, and in fact I coulda sworn that I blocked him, but the responses were pretty gross.

    It's interesting that it legitimately synergizes with lifegain. If you gain 6 life somewhere else and that causes the opponent to have to attack you three more times in order to kill you, well they suddenly take an extra 3.

    Marth, for reference, a number of people have banned curse of shallow graves for being overpowered in aggro. You dont need profitable attacks, you just need attacks that dont end with all of your attackers getting eaten without trades.

    I havent considered a ban, but I have not switched to the strictly better bersio version of the card either

    Deck thinning is too inconsequential in small doses. If it stays alive, then eventually (around the fifth land and turn 7) greenseeker will statistically net you a "card" (because you would have drawn 2 of the lands it already pulled from your deck) but that's sounds like way too much investment.

    Llanowar mentor can at least get you ahead of schedule and at least block more things.

    /

    Krosan tusker is instant speed divination that always fixes you, with the alternate mode of being a giant man. This is a) very valuable and b) why the card probably shouldnt be compared to other fatties. It's primarily 3 mana.

    I dont know which one he meant either.
    Marth, do you mean curse of shallow graves seems weak compared to control magic or skullclamp seems op compared to control magic?

    I mean, call this semantics, but I doubt I would call attacking with accorder paladin by itself on turn 3 "full value"


    Semantics it may be. When I say full value, I mean maximizing its expected value probabilistically. Not "what is the situation where it blows out my opponent".
