With the massive rise of counterfeit cards, we don't allow discussions on printing fake cards. Fedex has a printing service, so I would recommend just taking it there and trying a couple different print stocks.Quote from Simplysublime »4. Where can I get the custom cards printed to ensure they look and feel as authentic as possible?

This is not the case, from the rulings on Contamination (emphasis mine):
External effects that generate more mana still generate their additional mana as directed without being affected by this card. Effects which generate more mana based on what type of mana the land produces will be affected in color but not in amount.
You missed the first two words of your quote: External effects
This specifically refers to effects such as Fertile Ground and Vernal Bloom, which can cause more mana to be produced beyond Contamination's limiting effect.
Cabal Coffers can produce a maximum of B with Contamination, but Contamination won't stop Fertile Ground from then producing more mana.
Also, this is from 2012, so
Feb 23, 2019Posted in: Magic GeneralQuote from FoodChainGoblins »What are some of your favorite basic lands in the game?
I'm a huge fan of the full-art lands for the overall aesthetics, but my favorite Art cycle actually comes from Portal. The art here is kind of unique in that it each piece has a feature beyond the land itself. A farm house, a castle, a ship, an air balloon, ruins, tree houses, etc. I'm a big fan of cycles, and these are all stand-out unique lands that you can use in your deck to match.
The art was (finally) reused in Archenemy, so we can have them new bordered too!

If this is happening with various old threads, it's most likely that they are also deleted.
Due to the GDPR, when we transferred to Fandom we were forced to delete any EU user account whose owner did not explicitly agree to allow their transfer. This, unfortunately, made quite a few threads disappear in the process.

For example, the Legacy Pox forum, which was active, is now "forbidden" and cannot be accessed... This is over 200 pages of discussion gone! Can we get those forums back please, even if the posts from some people (even the one who made it and made the first post) are deleted?
If there's a specific thread, request it Here. Hopefully we can have someone takeover the missing primer, etc.
Everyone here should have been PM'd.
If I somehow missed you, please repost or PM me.
Jan 28, 2019The updates have finished, and we are back onlinePosted in: Community Discussion
Tomorrow, 1/29/2019, we will be performing server changes and upgrades.
During this time, the site will be "read only", meaning the site will be accessable but you won't be able to make new posts, PMs, etc.
The downtime should start about 24 hours from this post (~11AM Central).
We expect the maintenance to last a few hours, but will be done as quickly as possible.
Jan 23, 2019Feyd_Ruin posted a message on as a female player the new art style females is getting really annoyingIt might be a fantasy game in a fantasy world, but I still want a bit of realism. We have a storyline, and a sense of immersion with these characters and worlds.Posted in: Magic General
Sure, Liliana has a "seductress" quality to her, and doesn't wear armor. Showing a little skin and going out of her way to be attractive fits her motif. If it fits and is realistic, I'm fine with it.
That said, no right minded warrior is going to charge into battle wearing a metal bikini. That's absurd, ridiculous, and absolutely destroys the immersion.
Jan 16, 2019In order to steal the existing primer with a new OP, the user taking it has to have posted before December 2017.Posted in: Community Discussion
That will let me steal one of his posts to make it the new OP.
Otherwise, we'll have to make a new thread.
If you get it done, please shoot me a PM and I'll make it happen.
Jan 16, 2019I can see it, even logged out.Posted in: Staff Helpdesks
But just in case, I'll PM you the contents so we can delete it and recreate it to make sure it's there.
The spam filter shouldn't bother you at this point.
Jan 15, 2019There aren't, unfortunately.Posted in: Community Discussion
We can see that there's a deleted post, but this is hidden from normal users.
(Turning it on would let users also see deleted posts, so we can't really do that.)

Mar 4, 2018I agree with all of the above. I didn't delve much into the per-pack much because I don't think there's really a whole lot to be said. The rare-slot variance is fairly on topic for a per-pack basis, but after that there's only a delve into how much variance there is. If there's a good amount of variance level in a 25-pack box, there's about 25 times the variance in a singular pack.Posted in: Articles
We generally focus on an individual, small group, or LGS looking at the market. Someone who can buy anywhere from a box to a few, with the idea of selling individuals for a profit, or to get the cards they want and recoup their losses.
For individual packs, it's almost always a scratch-off lottery ticket. Most packs are duds, some let you break even, and a smaller minority are winners. It's extremely rare to see any in-print set break this mold.
Feb 8, 2018As a huge proponent of pauper, I feel your pain. In order to make sure everything was smooth, our first release was focused only on the main supported formats. More will come, and you can believe I'm making sure Pauper is high on the list.Posted in: Articles
Jan 5, 2018End of year update:Posted in: Articles
Etali, Primal Storm is a strong titan on his own. Two things to note here: he lets you play the top card of your own library, which will almost always be a good play, and you don't have to play anything you don't like. Pulling a Wrath of your opponents library is anything but a dud. You might not want to cast it, but you've now prevented your opponent from casting it. He's a very strong advantage engine.
Zacama, Primal Calamity might lose his untap ability if you Mayael him into play, but he's still a very strong control card. A 9/9 body is always nice, but his ability to Naturalize over and over is what makes him a massive boon to our board. The life gain and bolt is just more icing on the cake.
Ghalta, Primal Hunger might just be a beat stick, but he can often be hardcast from the hand for very cheap. Having two titans out ensures that he costs just two green mana. Even if you only have a single titan, he's probably still 4 mana or less.
Crested Sunmare needs support to get going, but he can be a powerhouse when he gets going. Perhaps if you focus on some of the better life gain titans, with a small life gain theme. In example: if you Tooth and Nail a Celestial Force and Crested Sunmare, you'll have a titan armada by the next time you untap.
Nazahn, Revered Bladesmith with her Hammer can be a decent combo to play with, especially if you use more than a couple equipment cards.
The above titans list several Dinosaur creatures. That's because Ixalan has given us another tribe we can play with. Dinosaurs are not nearly as cohesive and strong as the other tribes mentioned, but they have a very strong flavor factor that you might love. If you go this route, I recommend only doing a subtheme of dinosaurs, as they simply don't pack the punch that the other tribes and generic titans do. Carnage Tyrant, Burning Sun's Avatar, Etali, Primal Storm, Gishath, Sun's Avatar, Ghalta, Primal Hunger, Thundering Spineback, and Zacama, Primal Calamity are the marquee Dinosaurs for this tribe. Forerunner of the Empire, Knight of the Stampede, Otepec Huntmaster, and Priest of the Wakening Sun are all good support cards for the tribe.
Curse of Bounty can cause some collateral help to your opponents, but it can basically give all of your creatures vigilance and let you double dip on anything that taps for mana. If you do have a good bit mana, it can also let you use Mayael twice a turn - if not more if your opponents activate it as well. Somewhat situational, but it can make for some strong plays.
Traverse the Outlands might cost 5 mana, but can often fetch 6+ lands. Even if it just fetches 3, it puts you into the Titan hardcast zone.
Huatli, Warrior Poet and Huatli, Radiant Champion are acceptable creature-focused planeswalkers. Warrior Poet can be decent life gain that builds up to a large flame wave that clears the path for your creatures. Radiant Champion is best used if you go with Titans that can pump out tokens. If you can reliably get tokens out, she can ultimate the turn after she hits - which then makes further tokens absurd.
There's definitely a good bit more I could cover, but I just wanted to touch on the big new cards that I would definitely have gone over had I written this today.

It's the Gremlins I tell you! They're ruining all of our charts! Ahhhhh.Quote from TheAnnihilator0798 »Edit: Oh, and apparently my UW control deck has a lot of green in it, according to the color pie? Not sure where that's coming from haha.
Something went awry with the card database update. This will hopefully be fixed soon enough.
And yes, a listing of your own decks is slated to be added
Dec 4, 2017It is infinite turns.Posted in: Articles
Use By Gnome Means to put an Eon counter on Magosi, the Waterveil. Tap, remove the counter, bounce: Get the extra turn. In that same turn, replay magosi, which enters tapped.
Take the extra turn, untapping Magosi.
Just keep the Gnomes well supplied with artifact fodder.
Nov 4, 2017Kamigawa was considered to be a disappointment and/or failure compared to other sets.Posted in: Articles
I'd consider it to have "Masque Syndrome". The lore and setting was fine, and the block itself wasn't bad, but it had bad timing and needed more tuning on its mechanics.
It was a low power level block, but followed a higher power level block (Mirrodin). This made all of the cards feel weak/subdued/etc. The power pendulum always swings, but when it goes from high to low suddenly, that low level set/block is always very disjointed from standard and hated. Before Affinity started getting the ban axe, Kamigawa was largely ignored in standard.
The cards that broke the power level descent were problematic. Umizawa's Jitte is still one of the best equipments ever printed. Add to it the overall low power level that surrounded it, and it stuck out like a sore thumb that warped the meta to some degree.
Its mechanics were not well received at all. Although Ninjitsu was generally a success, bushido was considered "ok", and Splice into Arcane and Flip cards were both very un-loved. Splice just didn't have the support and power it needed to succeed. Flip cards failed both on the mechanic and visual end. Even wotc says flip cards visuals were a mistake, and recreated the effect with success in Transform. They were also very "meh" even beyond the visuals. Unlike the cool effects that present day transform has given us, most were "never happen", "not worth it", or "that's just win more".
In the end, the cards and sets were a flop.
While this has nothing to do with the story (which was actually refreshing and good) or plane itself, it has one of two reasons a set falls badly on the Rabiah scale. Either the plane itself is off by design or otherwise can't support a set - like Serra's Realm or the infamous Rabiah - or the cards were received so poorly that it taints the plane - like Mercadia, Kamigawa, and Ulgrotha (Homelands plane).
Any of the latter planes could be revisited and "redeemed" with a new set, but they are - at the very least - hesitant to revisit them because of the initial reaction from players: "Oh, that was horrible the last time".
Personally, I'd like to see Mercadia, Kamigawa, and Ulgrotha all revisited just so they can be done "correctly" and redeemed. The planes themselves were good.

I know this has been a long wait.
There was a period of major development lag due to staffing issues, etc. There's a team back on the project, however, and they are making some really strong headway!

Every other time we can see her left hand clearly, it's ringless:
