    "Ending the turn" immediately skips to Clean-Up, which means that any "at the beginning of the End Step" abilities missed their trigger.


    Any "at the beginning of this turn's end step" abilities miss their trigger, but not any "at the beginning of the next end step" abilities, because their trigger hasn't happened yet. They're still waiting around.

    Q: With a Mimic Vat and a Sundial of the Infinite, can I make tokens that stick around forever?

    A: Yep! Mimic Vat's ability only triggers once, at the beginning of the next end step. Once that ability triggers, it'll never trigger again. Activating the Sundial is a good way to make sure that ability never resolves, and your token's good forever.


    I believe this trick will work *only* if you activate the sundial of the infinite during the end step, once the delayed triggered ability is already on the stack. If you activate the sundial before the end step of your turn, won't the ability that forces you to sacrifice the token just happen at the next end step (on your opponent's turn)?

    Demonic Interference 3BB
    Sorcery
    Target player reveals his or her hand and discards all non-artifact cards from it.
    Cycling 3BB
    When you cycle Demonic Interference, target player reveals his or her hand and discards all artifact cards from it.


    Why would you ever cast this instead of cycling it, since it's a sorcery, but cycling is done at instant speed and nets a card draw? Wink

    Oh, whoops, just noticed that the cycling gets rid of just artifacts, which is less powerful. So it's kind of modal in nature. I'll modify the card based on the way I misread it:

    Empty Interference 2BBB
    Sorcery
    Target player reveals his or her hand and discards all non-land cards from it.
    Cycling 1BBBBB
    When you cycle Demonic Interference, target player reveals his or her hand and discards all non-land cards from it.

    Slightly more expensive for instant speed and cantrip.

    Wait, a five-mana spell that effectively stops your opponent from *ever getting another card*?! Way too powerful!

    At the beginning of your draw step, you may choose not to draw any cards and pay BB. if you do, target player discards a card.

    When ~ enters the battlefield, gain control of target artifact.
    When ~ is sent from anywhere to the graveyard, you may sacrifice the controlled arifact. If you do, return ~ to your hand
    Cycling: 3R (Discard this card, draw a card - Blurb)
    If you cycle ~, you gain control of target artifact until end of turn. Untap it. It gains haste until end of turn.

    I'e received two more at my MTGS-exclusive address. They appear to be originating from phished/hacked yahoo addresses now (unlike the first one). I am changing my registered address on here and setting up that address to bounce as undeliverable.

    I have not received anything else. I wonder if it is possible that when I first registered, my e-mail address was publicly visible on my profile for any period of time?

    We have been closely monitoring all site and database accesses for the past three days and nothing suspicious has come up.

    The only way to collect a lot of emails would be through a flaw in the control panel of vBulletin, but all accesses are logged too, and I have checked those logs thoroughly.

    I have also created a new account but have not received any emails on that address, so it most likely isn't something that is ongoing.


    Whenever something similar has happened via other sites (manhunt, for example), I have changed my account e-mail address to something different. Yet I never got similar spam at the new address. I agree that these exploits are probably one-time hits, not an ongoing backdoor-usage.

    @OP - You really have a different email for every website you're registered at ever? That's really diligent.


    Well, I control several domain names, including gemini6ice (dot-com). So when i register for a website, it's simply a matter of registering [some unique name, such as the website's name]@[my domain name].

    I have my webhosting set up to flow all e-mail into one mailbox. It's pretty simple. Smile

    Quote from Hannes
    This exact email has been around for several months as a Google search revealed. On one of my accounts where I receive a lot of spam I have several copies of it (and unrelated to MTGS).

    ganderin_dan also said he received several copies, it might be that whoever sends those just sent out a couple million today.


    I think both of these suspicions are probably true.

    I got the same e-mail too(plus alot of "you won $XXXXX please send your contact info to receive).

    Edit: I don't even play WoW. @.@


    I haven't gotten the money ones via my MTGS address (yet). I don't play WoW either, which is what made it (even more) obviously a phishing e-mail. Smile

    I use a different e-mail address for each website I am registered on, and I've just received spam at my MTGS e-mail address. The most likely explanation, imho, is that MTGS's database security has somehow been compromised? This e-mail address is nowhere publicly visible, afaik.

    It is a phishing e-mail purporting to be from Blizzard:

    Whenever you sacrifice a creature, creatures you control get +1/+0 and gain haste until end of turn.

    Put X creature cards from your graveyard onto the battlefield. Then sacrifice X creatures. At the beginning of the next end step, exile X creatures you control.
