  • posted a message on Pre-Release Guild Choice
    After the giant spoiler we received today I was wondering what people were feeling for their pre-release guild.

    With the initial spoilers, it seemed many people were feeling Izzet and Golgari but after going over the recent spoils I am saying that Rakdos is going to be the clear winner from the pile. I am not sure if anyone else got this feeling, but so many of the commons are ridiculously high in casting cost and Rakdos seems to be the only guild not suffering in that department. I could see an early flood dominating both Azorious whose detain creatures are at the higher end of the CMC and Selesnya whose gimmick is entirely too reliant on having a creature token in play to address that additional mana spent. Golgari's recycle mechanic seems hit and miss but with the two black golgari creatures having huge mana costs and no free milling, I dont see how it will fair well. Izzet has some tricks to deal damage such that the smaller Rakdos threats wont matter and it may be able to stabilize mid game for the turn around win.

    Does anyone else see this as a slower format with Rakdos as the only guild with any gas to rush for victory? Thoughts? Poll!

    Really you should use the search on Wizards' site to find the closest place to you and then do a bit of research.

    Or maybe you could at least give a more specific location, there are a lot of shops in New Jersey Wink

    My problem is that I've been to all the close stores they say, Including Time Zone Gaming, and they are all cramped as hell and full whenever events happen.

    I guess I'll never get an experience like the Old Grey Matter Conventions used to be.

    Hey ya'll, I've been out of the magic the gathering loop for a bit but I was wondering if you guys could point out a good location in Central Jersey to play magic at?

    I am not sure if this is the right place to ask this sort of question, so If not show me the right one (it wasn't apparent from the initial subsections choices).

    Ever since WOTC changed the pre-release scene from larger non-brick and mortar stores to brick and mortar stores, I have yet to find a place to play that doesn't feel like a fire hazard.

    Anyway, any help you can provide would be great. I am looking for a larger store, not a hole in the wall. Are my ideas delusional in the current state of magic? I just hate being shoe horned into a small back room and not being able to enjoy Magic anymore.

    I really wish Shred-Freak was RB instead of (R/B)(R/B) and had Unleash.

    Yeah this seems like a really weak card. Even for 2 red or 2 black, its horrible design. Yeah its a common and when Forsycthe did the cruise he has state that they overdid hybrid with Lorwyn after Rav but come on

  • posted a message on [ISD] Innistrad Patch for Magic Workstation (264/264)
    The italian website didnt work for adding Innistrad.

    When I downloaded both memnarch files and copy pasted them together, then added the set, I could not make boosters?

    Sucks because it was working before

    the 1UU copy target creature you control spell is uncommon and should be rare (Cackling Counterpart)

    werewolf pox is where it will be. Big creatures with nothing in the way to block them and no way for your opponent to unflip them

    its free mill for control decks, 4 cards isn't so bad that it can't be considered. Sure its not winning you the game in a non combo deck, but hey, thats 4 less things to worry about, unless of course they are playing the soon to be degenerate blue black zombie theme themselves.

  • posted a message on I'm sick of the reactions for new cards
    Quote from MakoEyesX
    This is going to sound pretty cynical, but honestly you should just stop reading reactions on this forum. I don't spend as much time on salvation as i used to because the interesting points are too far buried beneath complaints of all kinds.

    I usually just pop into the rumor mill, look at the new cards, and then get out as soon as i can.

    You sound like you know what you're looking for, so why bother arguing with other people about it online?

    I am doing what you are doing lately.

    Mods here use power freely and sometimes warn the most minuscule things. Too many complaints on this forum, and in most magic forums. It sucks i can't have conversations with like minded people when it comes to Magic, but i guess its the nature of the beast to be wide spread.

  • posted a message on OP cards that you thought were bad
    Quote from Macius
    im not a newb, but i fail to see why remand has so much buzz?

    have you ever heard of a card called Time Walk? Because early game, it is essentially that card. Your opponent did nothing, and you drew and extra card.

    Srsly no one said Mudhole ?

    If all you're going to do is name a card, please make sure nobody else had already mentioned that card. Spam Warning.

    Iconic.... Green.... That doesn't bode well

    Greens only been good in magic's later run, at least for a dominant deck color.

    it makes sense in flavor of the card and the plane, and does look like her, so I'd agree
