  • posted a message on [Primer] UR Storm
    So I'm playing a modern tournament tomorrow and I plan on playing Storm. But I can't find my Blood Moon's. I know I'm at a huge disadvantage not having this card, but I don't have any other deck readily available so I'm just gonna deal with it. Is there any other sideboard cards you would recommend, not necessarily to replace Blood Moon, cause there's nothing that can replace it, but to help out with matches that Blood Moon is good in.

    Any thoughts?

    Totally the wrong card. Should have been Deadeye Navigator.

    I'm glad I didn't follow through on my trade away Bitterblossom plans.

    Quote from Bacl
    Here's how to get a female hall of famer:

    *Wizards of the Coast takes serious realization that they have a product that both males and females can enjoy, but the awareness and interest in the product seems to only be getting to male players.

    *Look into its own advertising system in order to get product awareness to more females.

    *Successfully advertise to female customers; get a giant influx of female customers.

    *More liklihood of female PRO players and thus a female Hall of Famer.

    Same thing with Pokemon. At first, only boys played it, they realized this and advertized to girls as well, and then everybody played it. They didn't go around saying dumb stuff like, "Maybe girls just don't like pokemon or the game appeals only to boys' mentality."

    This is the best post in this thread and needs to be brought up again.

    Bane Alley Broker is just a Merfolk Looter that also sometimes gets you the cards back. You shouldn't really worry about that second ability anyway.

    My favourite niche card is Obstinate Familiar.

    I know it has its uses, but its just hilarious to see, especially for the first time.

    The thing is, if he's going to change payout based on places, he's not going to do it to screw you over, he'll do it to help ourt his buddies. So before you accuse him of acting maliciously, look at the people who do well when the payout is top heavy, and the people who do worse when it's more even.

    Quote from Vestar
    why dont you try thinking it through and applying basic logic.

    Could it possibly be that the mana system is actually good for the game?

    Could it possibly be that I was implying that to begin with?

  • posted a message on Mana Flooding/Scarcity: A solution?
    I've always wondered why, if the mana system leads to so many games being decided by luck, pro players who make money off of being skillful at the game never complain about it.

  • posted a message on How do you layout your lands?
    Lands up front, not really sorted in any particular way. I like to group different colours together and make different sized stacks as I play.

    How dare Wizards create a good control creature. Don't you know that all we want is just dudes that can attack all day.

    I think we're getting some mixed messages here.

    I always offer a handshake, win or lose, unless I'm sick or something.

    I just think its polite and is a show of good sportsmanship.
    I should get in the habit of saying "thanks for the game" instead of "good game"

    Bestow is really, really powerful. Any cheaper and it would dominate limited completely.

    Quote from ajprokos
    nice jump to conclusion. Kamiken was suggesting that the man did something to warrent him being beat up. We can't say he was just standing there, minding his own business. In some cultures, simply pointing your feet at someone will be not only offensive, but will provoke an attack. Walking on the wrong side of the streets in some cities in the US will get you beat up.

    Some people are too ashamed to ask for help if they did something they were told not to or went someone where that is looked down upon.

    Nope, that's still victim blaming. Maybe instead of saying that he shouldn't have done something to get himself mugged, you should be saying that his muggers shouldn't have mugged him.

    Its a pretty simple concept.

    Quote from itachiitachi
    So it's made for less than 00.1% of players.

    Oh wait, you're serious. Let me laugh harder.


    Sorry friend, but more magic is played casually then there will ever be competitively.

    Quote from Golden
    Mulligan all two absolutely terrible advice.

    Better advice: Accept the fact that there is a large luck component in Magic and instead focus on the things you can control.

    Mulligan all hands where you cant play most of it.. "This hand would be great when I draw a mountain" is an awful reason to keep a hand.

    Some decks and some hands dont mind only two lands, but in general, dont keep two land hands. Mulliganing is not bad.
