    I'm a newer user and I can't figure out which characters are causing a problem in my post. Could you add me to the nonlatin bypass please?

    Warnings were already issued, but I've gone ahead and deleted all offending/off topic posts.
    Back to our regularly scheduled thread...

    When a new legend comes out, I always immediately consider them as a possible Commander.
    For that, it seems lackluster. It's quick and easy, but it's still just one token per turn.
    Seems more likely to be useful in an aggro non-commander deck.

    Forgot to post these earlier.
    (Family over, holiday festivities, etc).

    I love my holiday cards.
    Definitely going to try and find some EDH homes for these. Kekeke

    Thank you Elemental!

    Pioneer's announcement lists only 5 cards initially on the banned list. Will this remain, or will more get added quickly in the format's infancy?

    Deathrite Shaman, Dig Through Time, and Treasure Cruise are legal in pioneer, but banned in both Modern and Legacy, and thus the first suspects. Are there others that come to mind?

    What do you think will get the quick axe, and why?

  • posted a message on Where is the Pioneer Format Forum on the site?

    I'm still here to help out as needed, but given that I'm generally neck-deep in coding mtgnexus, I only handle things here when someone says they need help, etc. If there's ever something that seems like it's obviously just fallen through the cracks, reach out to me directly. I'll either handle it or prod the person who should.

    Edit: I should probably make that my sig now heh

    ShadowlancerX has agreed to take on a larger role and become a Global Moderator.
    Xaricore has also agreed to moderate Commander to help out there.

    Hey Mikey

    The issue is that those conversations almost always turn into heated arguments that delve into real-world politics/views/etc when they continue on. This was one of those cases, where gender/etc in Magic ended up being used - at best - as a metaphor for real world issues, with several posts even skipping the topic of magic altogether to focus solely on those real world aspects.

    The topic is very sensitive, and this is especially compounded with the overall real world climate on the subject. Views are polarized, and this generally leads to very passionate posts on the subject, to say the least. Even if we ignore the resulting insults, flaming, and trolling that arises - the topic itself still diverges into a very touchy subject - from both sides. As such, it's a rarity that any such discussion stays tied to Magic.

    I know that such discussions often start with good intentions, but... yeah.

    I'll note that I didn't warn anyone in the entire discussion until after my second red text post (and then it was for blatantly ignoring a mod request). I don't feel it fair to "punish" people for having strong feelings on real world topics, which is why the topic itself is more of the issue than the people having it.

    Does anybody think Wizards will take this opportunity to complete the Swords of X and Y cycle? It’s a good a place as any.
    I don't think it'll be Sword of X and Y, but I definitely expect a high caliber sword or two. There are several tropes there, and surely there will be a sword in the stone and/or Excalibur reference (hopefully both - they weren't the same sword).

    We're seriously at like half the posts in this thread now deleted.

    New idea: Let's use this thread about a magic set, on a magic-specific forum, hosted on a magic-specific web site, filled with magic fans who want to talk about magic... to.. talk.. about.. Magic...

    If you want to discuss world politics, gender equality, gender identity, etc, there's plenty of websites and discussion boards for that. This is not one of them. Using Magic as a metaphor for real world discussion doesn't qualify it for being here either.

    18 posts of people arguing with nothing really to do with ELD.
    That was utterly ridiculous.

    Posts deleted.
    Please remain on topic.

    Passing it on to the dev is exactly what I was looking for. Smile

    Looks promising.
    Feel free to reach out to me directly, just note that I'm juggling quite a bit between both sites, developing, setting up, etc, so my response time might be poor.

    It's my goal to give primer writers everything they need to have full control over the look and feel of their primer. If you're going to invest the amount of time it takes to really do a good primer for the love of the game and for the benefit of the magic community, the least I can do is make sure you have every tool you need at your disposal. If we're lacking something, at launch or even down the road, let me know.
