    Hmm. I supposed Grim Poppet is too much to cast to use effectively with Epserzoa. Not really a ton of useful CIP artifact effects, and eh...not so much on Tidehollow Scullers leaves play effect.

    Odds are it will find a home in my Affinity deck somehow or another though.

    Reprint away. One of my favorite sets ever was mostly reprints.

    Spacing them out a bit would be nice though. Oblivion Ring, Cancel, Terramorphic Expanse, and a couple others being reprinted so soon after they had been originally printed was kinda bunk.

    how the hell... does that card even actually work....


    I've killed someone with Sorrows Path before I knew about the errata on it. Slant

    That deck was stupid. And not cool stupid, just...stupid.

    Eh, it has ridiculously awesome art, which makes me want to use it. It's...a grizzly bear...so that means I won't.

    Welp. This set sucks. I'm going over it again later and start making a list of things I'd actually use, then just pick up singles. Gonna be a short list though. Mainly r/w/g Zoo stuff, that charm is by far the best one. Thanks for the scans. Ashley Wood art on Lich's Mirror is pretty killer, I like that guy. Oh yeah, and Sigil Blessing is ridiculous.

    Ethersworn Canonist...I think I love you. I'm actually going to end up building control for a change. I might even want eight of these, so I can work them into my affinity.

    Arrghh. That fantastic art wasted on that pile of crap card? I tend to play aggro decks, namely zoo-esque ones, but this 5+ power theme is seeming to put the end to that for a while. Ugh. Utter crap. Slant

    Did you even read the rules on Flashback that i posted? You do realize that they have the same clause, right? "If it would leave the stack"... Delay removes it from the game, thus it gets counters. This is the same damned thing.


    Really.

    Simple.


    Ayep. I sure did. And they have absolutely jack squat to do with one another.

    i thought that might be the problem. Reading Flashback on the card and in the rules are slightly different.

    I agree with we do need the official ruling. But looking at Flashback, it looks pretty good that Mist and Blink will interact with it pretty well. Not that it would be overly powerful really. Its the same thing people were saying about Evoke.


    No. Really dude. Is there something difficult to understand about the line "Remove it from the game at end of turn or if it would leave play."

    The official ruling you're after is RIGHT THERE ON THE CARD. Blink/Mist makes the card...leave play...

    Really.

    Simple.

    Hmm, I've been wondering what some of those other packs were. I could pick out Saviors and Dissension, but the other ones I wasn't 100% sure on since I wasn't playing during Onslaught/Mirrodin. Thanks for the info for that. I may pick up some of the Dissension/Lorwyn ones.

  • posted a message on [EVE] terrible set!?! (all "this is a terrible set" threads and posts go here)
    Perhaps it's because when I was watching the Shadowmoor spoiler, every day was "OMGF this set is ridiculous", but man oh man, does Eventide seem weak. There are a few cards I'll definitely use, like the retrace burn in Pyromancers Swath, and the retrace discard and siphon just because they rock. Couple other things, like the G/B Avatar, and something about Noggle Hedge Mage makes me love it. Like some sort of wacky four color Revaillark-Prismatic Omen nonsense.
