    The easiest way to carry this out would be to add the primer tag to any MTGS primers that migrate over :p

    You’re not wrong in that respect, but we don’t know how things are going to look at the other end, and it’ll mean that existing primer curators will need to save their code, migrate over and let us know where their new thread is, once it’s at a level the curator is happy with (based on the chance that it may not translate exactly the same, we just don’t know yet).

    At any rate, in essence it’s simple, we just want to make sure it’s a smooth transition and that we can make the move as seamless as it can be for all involved.


    I've got my code saved verbatim in a Google docs file. I'd advise others do the same as its just a matter of a mere c/p job.

    You'd think something like that would go without saying, but.........

    Hmm. It's like a Ball Lightning that's Aleshable. That's not insignificant. That said, since you need setup to make it do anything, I imagine this isn't as good as that 2/2 minotaur that +2/+0s itself on etb since that's a static reliability and this card would need devo 3 to match it.

    But mask of memory is less contingent on playing an otherwise bad 3cmc 3/3, and under the same savage beating, is a +8 ca. (If you're playing this, it's because the discard is otherwise not card disadvantage).


    Technically, that's +4 if you do it that way, which is still nice on its own. You can, of course, exploit your graveyard in this format pretty easily.


    Right, there's four discards in there, but if you're running Mask, then typically you don't mind discarding cards. That's why I didn't call it a +4 because you can generate card advantage in more ways than putting cards into hand.

    It's like they decided to make a worse Compost for twice the cost that only triggered one time and was still vulnerable to creature removal. Sounds like an anti-winner to me.

    Why do these things not happen on the west (best) coast? jealousy intensifies. Haha

    You know what I like more than this card? Mask of Memory. All colourless, does virtually the same thing, and let's be honest if you're in the market to be looting, then if you can somehow draw twice off the 3/3, you wouldn't mind getting a second discard too.

    Do you mean sort of how our deck builder has sections that you can fill in?


    You mean the deck tags[deck][./deck]? Or holy ***** is there an actual deck builder like tappedout uses? Because why have I not known this over the years, I've just drawn my stuff up in Gnote (it's the libre/Linux version of MS Notepad)..............

    The Primer template isn't actually posted in a separate thread anywhere, which is probably an oversight generally. I think we had discussed making it a stickied thread in the Primer Application thread but then Real Life took over and it got waylaid. So yes, it's currently available only by request, heh.

    I'll discuss it with the Primer Committee and see if it can be added to the Application thread for general users to reference.


    As I recall, the primer template thread is in the primer committee subforum, but it is always getting buried by the requests. Since the viewing permissions are so strict, most members won't ever see it as a last post, instead they just see "deleted".

    And I mean no ill will towards the PC in my comments. My time with the PC was a much younger time when the concept was still growing, and I recall my primer was in the first three or so to get approved so the obvious speed bumps were present and they were overly present. Overall, it was about two months of debates, rewrites, resubmissions, reformats before it was finally allowed to display the tag.

    And one thing I'd like to point out, it wasn't exactly recent, but I distinctly recall their was talk of rescinding my primer status because "the deck list never changed". Given once a competitive deck reaches it's apex, a deck shouldn't change but sparingly, I found this a confusing point to be brought to my own attention, especially given my activity with the thread in question. Again my status was, as I see, not rescinded, but if I could make a suggestion, I don't think such a critique "the deck list hasn't changed in a long time" should be considered as a candidate for rescinding status so much as the lack of activity in a thread would.

    How about the pain this thing brings me every time my eyes are forced to see it?

    The biggest thing that always got me when I was on the committee, was and I quote "a submission is never approved on the first request".
    Wait. When did this become a thing? When I was on the Committee (which wasn't all that long ago), we totally approved prospective primers on the first go.


    When I was part of it (years ago), that was one thing I'd see from multiple other members in discussion. "Well, it's the first submission, we need to find something because it can't be approved on the first go."

    I think Cinder Glade is better than Mossfire Valley in almost every situation.
