    I'm pretty sure this goodluckday bad ad was made by Hydra.
    Everytime you cut off one head, two more grow back.

    I'll keep reporting them.

  • posted a message on Cannot save deck after edit
    I've been banging my head on my desk for a while trying to figure this out.

    Here's what I've come up with:
    The problem lies with "Gigantosaur" somewhere.
    I've deleted and remade the card, and that seems to work fine for any new decks.
    But it's caused some unknown issue to be persistent in your deck.

    For your deck, if we remove Gigantosaur, we can update and save everything just fine.
    If we re-add Gigantosaur, even the new version, it will save any decklist card changes, BUT it'll error out and not save any of the discussion/writeup updates.

    I think at this point, the only thing we can do is to remake the deck.
    That's definitely not ideal, but I don't see anyway to fix it as is.
    If you open up two tabs, you can hopefully copy-paste everything over.

    I apologize for this issue.
    I'm honestly perplexed as to how it's still erroring.
    I think Gigantosaur is just cursed.

    If the size of our own images works, using them is the most ideal.

    You can also save and upload images attached to a post for use.
    This is what I almost always do.
    The test forum is a wonderful place to upload your images without clogging up real posts.

    We're no longer attached to MagicCards.info, and definitely not with Scryfall.
    I'll need to remove the reference in the guideline, it was overlooked.

    I've added a tag just for you, though Grin

    Note the order and the comma



    Example2 (about the size you want):


    We also have a [cardimg] tag for easy use if a bit smaller size is ok:

    [cardimg]Nemata, Grove Guardian[/cardimg]

    We've been having a slew of bad ad redirects. It's not just us, at all.

    It's been labeled as one of the largest ad network redirect attacks anyone has seen.
    Not only is it not just our site, it's across a multitude of ad networks.

    Please be assured, our ad team is doing everything they can to kill the bad ads as soon as they arise.

  • posted a message on "Mark All as Read" only works on main forum page.
    The drop down seems to be erroring.
    I haven't encountered this issue before.

    If you go into the forum above what you want to mark as read, you can click the bubble icon of the forum to mark everything within as read.

    I can confirm this is working fine.

    I know some of the email notifications have had bugs off and on.
    I'll prod the developers to take another look.

    (Also, irony: I didn't get a notification for this post. Apologies for the delay in response)

  • posted a message on You may not post here. You may be banned from doing so or some other restriction is applied to your account.
    You're definitely not banned. You wouldn't be able to visit any forum page if you were banned. This is a generic "You don't have permission". Posting to a deleted thread would do it (generally only happens if you go to a thread and it's for some reason deleted right before you post).

    Where were you trying to post?

  • posted a message on How much should "Target gets -4/-4 uEOT" Cost?
    What would you cost "Target creature gets -4/-4 until end of turn" ?

    Existing "vanilla" examples and higher/lower bounds:

    We're all over the place here.
    I feel like the cost bounds for -3/-3, -4/-4, and -5/-5 are so overlapping, you could justify any non-absurd answer.

    So.. if you made a "-4/-4" card in your set.. what would you cost it?

    And, expanding a little, how would you cost it for double-black vs single-black costs?
    Is instant/sorcery a large change to cost?

    WizardMN hit it on the head.
    I've gone ahead and edited your decktag in your thread so that it appears correctly.
    Basically, your two issues were: No [card] tags needed inside of a [deck] tag, and cards should be listed as "1 Cardname" instead of "x1 Cardname"

  • posted a message on 1 CMC Planeswalkers
    I've been thinking about 1cc walkers since the uncommon ones were announced in WAR.

    First, I think we can't do it with any existing walker. They are simply too powerful lorewise to see weakened down to 1cc, and no one really wants to see their epic hero in weak noob form. BUT... perhaps a fledgling walker who just sparked? You don't already have to be a powerful mage for your spark to trigger, so it fits.

    Second, I think the most crucial aspect of a 1cc walker is that it can't protect itself, at least not with its main + or - abilities (ie: no tokens, full-round tap, burn, etc). This will keep it from getting out of hand and ruining the early game. Any ability that could protect itself would have to be limited to its third "ultimate" ability, if seen at all. It could also, perhaps, psuedo-protect itself, such as untapping a creature you control. This would allow a little protection, but it doesn't do it by itself.

    I would also discourage any card advantage or permanent gains outside of the ultimate. If you drop one first turn on the play you can +it and -it before your opponent generally has a chance to kill it, with only a few exceptions. As such, the Walker's first two abilities combined shouldn't be able to do more than what we'd get from a good 1cc Spell. This would be a good rule of thumb that limits the early game power before the opponent can properly interact with it.

    Two examples along these lines:

    Svengol, Silhana Champion green mana
    Legendary Planeswalker - Svengol
    +1: Untap up to one target creature.
    -2: Target creature gets +2/+2 until end of turn.
    -4: Put a +1/+1 counter on each creature you control.

    Brogsten, Legion Drillmaster red mana
    Legendary Planeswalker - Brogsten
    +1: Up to one target creature can't block this turn.
    -1: Target creature gains haste until end of turn.
    -4: Creatures you control get +2/+0 until end of turn.

    (Brogsten would be the final version of the little Legion Goblin that has worked his way up the ranks in Boros. He was first seen as a Recruit, and went on to become a full fledged Loyalist, before his time as a Warboss triggered his spark as shown above).

    Of course, making "weak" walkers is the opposite of what Planeswalker cards are suppose to represent.
    But, no reason it can't be explored here for fun, right?
