    really really good promo. best one since....um, isochron scepter? But far more applicable in today's meta! I like. I dunno why people hate the original artwork, I thought it was decent. This one looks okay, hard to tell because the scan's bad.

    ^which means Abyssal Prosecutor hasn't been seeing any play. The pros have playtested him to death, and he's not even making the cut in jund (where garruk has edged him out). Which means that 228 people in this thread were wrong.

    Nocturnus is an infinitely better card than AP. He doesn't randomly lose you games and he turns ALL your vampires into Abyssal Persecutors (without the drawback) Cool

    Cute, but agree with all of the above, in particular path. And let's not forget the lack of any evasion...

    I'm willing to, but it'd probably be best if I didn't as it could compromise the investigation.

    On the link you provided, what if we've forgotten our password and the password is sent to an email account that doesnt exist anymore? :/

    Does anyone know how I can get in contact with the DCI comittee? There's a judge whose crimes I want to be known. I won't get into it here, but let's just say it would be really, really bad if he became a level 3 judge.

    Card in question:

    Death's Shadow
    black mana
    Creature - Avatar
    Death’s Shadow gets -X/-X, where X is your life total.
    13/13

    Perhaps in some suicide build? If you're at 10 or less life, he's already insanely efficient. Perhaps he could see play in extended, where life totals tend to go down very rapidly?

    I dunno, I feel like this card is just waiting to be broken.

  • posted a message on The Moderator Accountability Thread
    As I'm sure some of my fellow members on mtgsalvation would agree with me, sometimes we witness an abuse of power or a display of a lack of maturity in certain moderators around the forum. Some moderators, who I will not name, I think are harmful for the forums because of either possessing a "power hungry" attitude and are downright disrespectful when dealing with members, and therefore, drive people away.

    Therefore, I propose that we have moderator accountability in the form of a stickied thread or a subforum where members of the forum can post their complaints (and ideally, some evidence) about certain moderators acting inappropriately and have other fellow members/moderators judge that mod in question (e.g. if moderators constantly see a single moderator causing problems among a number of members, they may wish to investigate the individual).

    That way, this will be an incentive for moderators to refrain from acting disrespectful to other members and not to abuse their power. It will also help "weed out" moderators that different members have had problems with, but have not had a platform to speak out with.

    I suspect some moderators will not like this idea because they'd actually have to watch what they're saying to members and their crimes against the forums will be on display, but overall, it help make this community a better place and give members a voice to speak out against problem mods.

    I dunno, hypergenesis suffers the same problems (losing to a counter), and yet it beats everything else. I think this deck has potential.

  • posted a message on Mod deleted my thread???
    In the general magic forum, I think a moderator deleted my thread "@FNM went X-0 and got a DQ" as it has simply vanished. We had a good discussion going on, and I don't know why the mod did this. I wasn't breaking any forum rules. I think this was very irresponsible in terms of moderatorship because this is an issue that concerns the magic community as a whole and obviously people were interested in discussing it.

    The issue was about "bribery". The guide defines bribery as asking the other player to concede in exchange for packs. I got busted by a local judge because I phrased my request "wrong", while if I had said "Will you concede" with a wink, it would've been okay. The "bribery" extends even to the top 2 of PTQ's where a player concedes to another player in exchange for packs, which is a clear violation of the rule, but judges do squat about it.

    As another note, Annorax says that players get suspended for up to 6 months at an FNM, an FNM, for something as silly as this, just phrasing it wrong. This whole "bribery" thing is understandable in principle, but rediculous in another regard in putting it in the same level as cheating and stealing as it does nothing to harm to integrity of the game when there are bigger problems like people ID'ing at PTQ's to get into top 8 (unfair for people who want to have a chance to get in).

  • posted a message on Why are there no mythic lands in ZEN
    firl21 A potential cycle of mythic-seeming lands:

    Benalia
    Legendary Land - Plains
    You cannot play Benalia on the first, second, third, or fourth turns of the game.
    Whenever damage from a source an opponent controls is prevented, you may draw a card.

    Tolaria
    Legendary Land - Island
    You cannot play Tolaria on the first, second, third, or fourth turns of the game.
    Whenever you counter a spell, you may draw a card.

    Shiv
    Legendary Land - Mountain
    You cannot play Shiv on the first, second, third, or fourth turns of the game.
    Whenever you deal two or more damage to a player with an instant or sorcery, you may draw a card.

    Wrenna
    Legendary Land - Swamp
    You cannot play Wrenna on the first, second, third, or fourth turns of the game.
    Whenever a creature goes to the graveyard from play, you may draw a card.

    Llanowar
    Legendary Land - Forest
    You cannot play Llanowar on the first, second, third, or fourth turns of the game.
    Whenever a land enters the battlefield, you may draw a card.

    They're all fluffy, they all have the potential to be amazing in the right (most likely casual) decks, and the fact that they're legendary AND that you can't play them until turn 5 means that barring some sort of combo most players won't need more than two or three even if they do show up in competitive play (so even if they do become staples they still won't be absurdly hard to get a hold of).


    The blue and the green one seems broken beyond belief, especially the blue one. They dont really make too much sense from a design point of view and they dont seem very mythical either.

  • posted a message on Can I still become a doctor?
    I just graduated from college, and I just realized that the most fullfilling career for me would be the MD profession. I want to be able to save people's lives and there's nothing I'd rather do in my free time than just studying to be a MD. It seems like the pursuing the MD path is the best way how I can satisfy my intellectual cravings and altruistic impulses. I didn't major in any science backgrounds though, and my friends tell me they don't know anyone whose just suddenly switched careers into MD right after college. My parents are pretty much against this, and they refuse to help pay for post-bacc. education in pre-med, forcing me to find ways (probably loans??) to pay for it. I feel very strongly that this is the right profession, and I can't help but to think compulsively about it, and I'm reading up everything I can find about chemistry and medical school. Does anyone have any advice?
