But then you have to play a four drop 1/1 with no haste and a tap ability. /wrists
Quote from Buffsam89 »One group I used to play with really frowned on Combos and such, so cards like Tooth and Nail were really treated as value engines that his led to ridiculous board states. One such game with this group, a player entwines T&N to grab Mirror-Sigil Sergeant and this. It lasted about 3 trips around the table because of late in the game it was.
Quote from Rumpy5897 »I'm not a huge fan of the formatting side of primers either. I got off easy with Patron of the Orochi, in retrospect I think the committee knew that nobody would care about the thread and just slapped on the primer tag to get me to stop bumping the application. My Daxos the Returned was a bit thornier, but ultimately I ended up with a primer template that I was happy with to the point of back-porting my Patron list to the same style. I figured it was worth to put in the elbow grease that one time to figure out something that worked, if I decided to make any future primers.
Eventually, I got smitten enough by Feather, the Redeemed to go for it. I mirrored my Daxos primer in layout, wrote everything up carefully while keeping in mind the content feedback I got last time around. It came back with stylistic change requests.
I'm aware of some builds that are primer-worthy and well maintained, but the authors are just unwilling to put up with this process. I can't blame them. I'm picking up some similarities to peer review in academia, where reviewers tend to suggest stuff for the sake of suggesting stuff. If we're going to be this picky about layout, create a gold standard template that people can copy-paste and fill out to get around the stylistic requirements.
Quote from Gashnaw II »the primers are fine, but yes do primers for commanders who do not have one. i like reading them as they can give me interesting ideas for them. And they really tell me if i want to play them or not.
Quote from DirkGently »Mostly unrelated to moderation, but the biggest annoyance I've had with the forums personally is the primer system. The requirements for non-content related stuff like formatting is honestly ridiculous. It took me nearly as long to format my Phelddagrif primer than it did to write the thing, and it's like 70 pages long or something insane like that. Having pretty formatting is nice and all, and primers should strive to be readable, but especially for commanders that don't already have primers, I think discouraging people from creating a primer because they'll have to spend hours inserting pictures and tinkering with fonts is a big net negative for the forum. There are many many commanders with no primers that could certainly use one, if only it was easier for people to do.
Quote from DirkGently »Oh, and then also those horrible mobile ads. I swear sometimes it redirects me five times before it'll let me get where I wanted to go. I assume that particular bugaboo won't follow the forums to wherever they go next, but GRRRRRR I hope whoever created them dies in agony. Or at least, like, never finds a fulfilling career.
Yeah, that's why it's too slow >_>Quote from WizardMN »You only create 2 Snake tokens in a 4 player game (you have 3 opponents so there are 2 not being attacked with the original). As such, it is much too slowQuote from 3drinks »And your new combo of the set to the format goes to.................
