    posted a message on Anyone else salty at Wizards?
    Since Throne of Eldraine it seems Standard has been a roller coaster of "That seems cool, let's print that!" then "oops, turns out Oko, Thief of Crowns was really ******* broken, so ***** lets ban him". Then it's "Omnath, Locus of Creation decks are now literally 30% of the meta, so lets ban Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath instead of him. And we ended up having to ban Omnath anyways. Oh well."

    Yes, I'm pretty salty. I pulled an Uro and didn't get a chance to sell him before his ban, and now he's dropped $15.

    Then again, I don't play standard anyways, and I pulled a foil borderless Oko at a draft and sold him right before I was banned and got $80 off him. So maybe I should be grateful to Wizards for making such a blatantly overpowered card.

    I don't feel I'm alone with my general loathing of Wizards right now, with bans happening every other day and the new Walking Dead *****.

    This isn't mindless rage posting, I'm just trying to figure out how everyone else feels. My playgroup is definitely on the "**** Wizards" side of things, but I don't know how everyone else is.

    Also, I heard that Oko was a misprint, that his "target artifact or creature becomes a useless 3/3" was actually supposed to be "target artifact or creature YOU CONTROL becomes a 3/3 dork". Does anyone know if that's true?

    posted a message on Which forum signature is better: Funny or harsh?
    So I have three movie quotes from movies I love. One is humorous, while two are rather harsh. All three are extremely true. Which do you think I should use?

    The funny one:
    "You know, when life gives you *****, you make Kool-Aid."
    -Sam Jackson, The Hitman's Bodyguard

    And the harsh ones:
    "Here's the thing. Life is an endless series of train wrecks with only brief commercial-like breaks of happiness."
    -Wade Wilson, Deadpool


    "I'd like to share a revelation that I've had during my time here. It came to me when I tried to classify your species and I realized that you're not actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment but you humans do not. You move to an area and you multiply and multiply until every natural resource is consumed and the only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet."
    -Agent Smith, The Matrix
