Quote from 4thDimentionalBubbleI'm pretty sure that Emrakul is a pretty "i win the game" card.
Quote from .nemesisI think it's funny that the "good cards" in Standard are so obviously good. WotC are basically slapping everyone in the face with Blightning-like "look what good cards are common" stuff.
I don't like decks that build themselves. Vampires and Jund are basically Monoblack respectively GRB GoodStuff.dec. No challenge for the deckbuilder and no challenge to play, because the optimal play is so freaking obvious everytime. That's no fun to me.
Quote from DamajaSo a trigger was missed, overlooked ... whatever. Would it have changed the outcome? Probably not. wotc has Judges watching games to do the trigger catching don't they? Maybe he was worrying about how to win a match to win 40k in cash? Damn its over with, let the guy enjoy his win.
Quote from PhanTomOn the other hand, Ichorid always has haste, swings for 3 instead of 2, and dies at the end of your turn on it's own, which is relevant. Of course, Bloodghast is probably still better.
NOThresh has been around since Progenitus was printed, it's not so roguish as the OP suggests.
I like the Hexmage Depts deck, although some cards look clunky. And also get your terms together, it's not a zoo shell in anyway, being much closer to Rock/Pox.
