    Quote from Castle

    So, what does everyone think of being back in Ravnica? I'm stoked, although it bugs me that I haven't had the opportunity to actually try out any of the new cards. Loving what I've read of Rakdos so far. I tried mocking up a cheap BRG aggro deck, but goldfishing has proven a bit awkward so far. I think I've just been out of the game too long, I've lost my instinct for what would get a pass mark. :/

    Hey, Castle! It's cool to see that you're back now too!
    I'm kinda happy to be back in Ravnica. I've made a switch from Rakdos to Izzet as my play style has changed.

    On the subject of the green, it's irritating but I can understand why we need it. I can deal with it until the problem is fixed.

    What guild is everyone else leaning toward?

    I have a few pets.
    German Shepherd named Rosco. He's a sweet dog, but he loves to play tackle and bite.

    A couple of mutts. A chihuahua mix named Buddy; actually my sister's dog. Him and I don't like each other, but he pees on my space heaters so I think I'm in the right. And then there is Vegas, a cocker spaniel mix that is pure black. She was the only one to survive from her litter and we've had her for 13 years.

    Then theres the chickens, the turkey, and the guinea hen. They are birds with bird brains. XD

    We also have a cat. Little gray thing with white paws named Boots. This one is my sister's cat, but she actually likes me.

    Finally I have my puppy. Artemis is a husky, and a very rambunctious little girl. She's 6 months old. She also has a habit of chewing up all of her collars. In my LARP group she has become known as the direwolf.

    Hey guys, I'm back from my long hiatus. Last couple years have been a little rough and plenty busy, but I think I can find time to be active on the forums again.

    @Seth: A shadowheart RPG eh? Sounds fun. I would love to join in if possible, although I'm a bit strained when it comes to time :/
    Haha, I'm sorry you thought I was a goner. I probably was, but hey look at the name. Unded doesn't just stand for Undead you know. Oh wait, it kind of does. So there, consider me back from the dead.

    Hey guys. Long time no see. My life has been chaotic in the last.....man, how long HAS it been since I was last on? I can't remember. I felt like dropping in for the last half hour before I go to work though. I see some new faces, and some regular ones.
    As far as Magic goes, I'm kinda meh on the latest set. I got Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur. I recently made a soldier equipment deck that has been kicking ass. If someone wants to see a deck list I can provide.
    But enough about me, what have all of you been up to?

  • posted a message on Why is July 4th Celebrated in America, Do YOU Know?
    Quote from Ulfsaar
    I've never heard of a barbecue on Juneteenth.

    Neither have I haha. Maybe it's because I'm Caucasian. I take pride in my knowledge of US history but I couldn't tell you what month the Emancipation Proclamation was signed (although I think I could make a pretty good guess now), and I definately could not say when Juneteenth became a national holiday.

    Quote from BlinkAVA44
    The only thing this poll shows is that men are smarter than women.


    Quote from Befuddlement
    It's called the 4th of July for a very, very simple reason.
    People can't spell Independence.

    Or is it because people have a strange obsession with shortening names, words, etc. (<----- case in point)?

    Quote from kristos

    You know what? Its not a big deal, lets just forget all the old wars and those who died for them. The American Revolution, what was that? War of 1812, when was that fought again? Who cares about the civil war? The great world wars: who was Archduke Ferdinand? Who was Hitler? Who was Benito Mussolini? Joseph Stalin? The war of the roses? George Washington? Queen Elizabeth? The Russian Revolution? Ect. Ect. These are not importent people or events and did nothing to impact our daily life... End sarcasm.

    I really hope you were joking, because thats a problem today; history and its importance takes a back seat. It may not be needed in day to day life but it should be known in general.

    (I just ratled off some important people and events off the top of my head. They may or may not have anthing to do with America but are important in one way or another in some way. I know that many other people exist and have had an impact on the world we live in and involved in many countries around the world. Respect.)

    Thank you, this needed to be said.

    Overall, I'm not surprised by the out come of this test. I had a person in my US History class who said that we won our Independence from Spain during an oral quiz. Now this could be an honest mistake. Another classmate of mine said the South won the Civil War....honestly believing it. When we finally taught her that the North won, and got her to memorize she made a bigger ass of herself. She agreed the North won, but apparently she also believed the Confederacy won and the Union lost.

    Living in the West makes me sad. My test results are grouped with California.

    Quote from Castle
    You need to put the number first, then the card name, otherwise the deck tags sees them all as headings. If there's a number first, it's a card, if not, it's a heading.

    DeckMagic OnlineOCTGN2ApprenticeBuy These Cards
    4 Cards (with comments!)

    Basically, the deck tags only recognise three things to determine the formatting: Numbers, brackets and the word "Sideboard". Everything else is a bolded heading.

    EDIT: Cool... That's a lot of one-and-two-ofs, I take it you're trying to get a wider cross-section of vampire-related cards into the deck. I'll try to find my vamp deck for comparison, mine was a fast aggro build as well...

    I've only just added in the ROE cards now, so this has not actually been tested exactly as written here...

    I added my sideboard on. I just realized I have a missing vampire hexmage. There are alot of ones and twos of. I'm kinda limited on my cards. Most of these i had to trade a few of my toes to friends just to get.
    Why you use vampire lacerator?! There are so many other cheap-o vamps you could put in instead.

    Thanks Castle, Ayers Rock was the only place I could think of. I thought maybe the Maori got invented at least once. Congratulations on being the only Continent with no pyramids. hahaha.

    I'll post a decklist for a vampire agro deck I've had luck with. I would be putting it up now but I've been called away for the next hour or two.

    hey castle. how was it?

    I'm thinking I'm going to start LARPing in the near future. That Live Action Role Playing. If you have ever seen people playing Amtgard or running around hitting each other with foam swords that's what I'm talking about. I've messed around with the people who do it before and it was a lot of fun. Curse my laziness and lack of a driver's license.

    I have to remake my vampire deck now because of M11. This angers me. I'll post a deck list when i get a chance. I have to go weed eat now.

    Hey Castle, I'm working on a story that involves pyramids, and I was wondering if there are any ancient, mysterious places, constructions, etc. in Australia. They don't have to be pyramids, I just want to include all continents in my story.

  • posted a message on Dragon Ball Z Kai
    Dragon Ball Z Kai aired on Nickolodeon tonight. All the trailers promised a brand new series, but showed images of the original Dragon Ball Z. I actually hoped it was a new addition to the series, but was let down. I have to say, I was relieved when it was the old show. I never had a chance to watch it from
    begginning to end before. But now I realize this isn't just the old show. It is a completely remastered (and in some cases redubbed) version. The only complaints I have are that they took out the blood of my favorite anime of all time, and took the cussing out of the show that taught me to cuss when I was little. Example, instead of Raditz saying "What the hell" in episode 2, he said "What the hack." yes, hack.

    What do you all think?

    I always use it as just a common courtesy thing, whether I won or lost or even enjoyed the match. Theres times like on Left 4 Dead 2 where we kept wiping but before we quit I said "good game". Its not a sarcastic or, you screwed up, kind of thing. At least, not how I've used it. Or ever seen anyone else use it.

    It is more because your mom is trying to get you to push yourself. She simply helped your sister because she made a mistake. If you lose the weight you will get the spider.

    and you know....blah blah blah...life isn't fair...yada yada yada..

    So really, it's not that unfair
