    No problem. Sleep deprivation happens to the best of us.

    Quote from Manite »
    It's definitely to make learning the game easier, as new players will often have a hard time comprehending the difference between "deals 3 damage" and "target player loses 3 life".
    I wouldn't say they'll "often" have a hard time, but anything that makes the game easier to learn, even if only a little, is welcome.

    Urza had two sparks, his own and Dyfeds.
    It was Glacian's spark that Urza had, not Dyfed's.

    Damn, I didn't realize the change meant the mana pool was no more. Frown

    First they took mana burn; now they've come for the whole pool. Sad days.
    I think it's more going the way of the stack; it still exists, but it's never mentioned in card text.

    I just noticed that that's a Phyrexian Colossus on Grow from the Ashes.

    I mean, clearly you're taking this way more personal than I am. I'm not being negative.

    You realize that you are the one who initially replied to my post, right? A post that wasn’t directed to any one individual? Like, that is the epitome of “taking it personally”. If it didn’t bother you, you wouldn’t have had a reason to reply telling me how I’m wrong, or how you’re right.
    I really didn't want to get involved with this little spat, but I feel that some impartial third party needs to point out that you both sound like you're taking this equally personally.

    FYI, saying "I'm not taking this personally" or equivalent is the most sure-fire way to sound like you are, in fact, taking it personally.
    Wouldn’t that apply to every reply/quote between users then? By that definition, you are taking this personally. You should stop.

    SMDH...
    I... What? I was talking about you guys. Mostly Ashiok, because he's the one who brought up the whole "taking it personally" thing in the first place, for some reason. I never said anything about how personally I was taking it. I really don't get your logic here.

    It's also worth noting that sounding like you're taking it personally is not the same as actually taking it personally. Frankly, I doubt either of you are taking it very personally at all. I only pointed it out because the more you go out of your way to convince Ashiok that you're not taking things personally, the more he'll be convinced that you actually are taking it personally, and vice-versa. I don't think anyone in this thread wants this to devolve into pages of "you're mad!" "no, you're mad!"

    The set lacks a means to remove counters from Sagas. I had expected there to be some way to prolong the Sagas and draw more value out of them. As it stands, I believe that only Quarry Hauler can provide that service in standard.
    There is Sentinel of the Pearl Trident.

    Is this the first Siege-Gang Custom Token they've made?
    Well the helmet on the Tenth Edition goblin token looks similar to what the gobbos in the original art are wearing, and Siege-Gang Commander was reprinted in that set, so... I don't think so?

    What's Amaranthine? Is that a material we've seen before?
    It isn't a substance; it's a color. Something which is "amaranthine" is red, usually with undertones of purple like what you might find on certain flower petals. The Hopi used it to make one of the glazes they used on their pottery.
    For as right as Courier7 is - and that's exactly correct - the Wall is meant to refer to the mundane adjectival sense of amaranthine: "Unfading, eternal, immortal, infinite; relating to the flower from Greek myth, amaranth, which never fades."

  • posted a message on New Judge Promos: Commander's Sphere & Merchant Scroll
    I get that EDH players (myself included) like foils, so making foil versions of Commander cards is nice. And I get that cards that reference your general or the command zone can't just be put in a core set or whatever, so you can't get foil versions out there that way. But surely WotC can think of a better vehicle for that than judge foil promos? Commander's Arsenal 2? A variant on the Signature Spellbooks? Some kinda Buy-a-Box promo for Commander releases? I'm just spitballing here, surely someone who's actual job it is to come up with these things can think of something even better.

    Obviously, the stained glass knight is amazing, but that goblin token is great, especially when you notice he's supposed to go with Siege-Gang Commander...

    Ah, thank you.

    Why does every Mark Poole basic have an archway except for the Forest?
    He's an arch-fiend! XD

    Diligent Excavator is digging up a Whetstone. That's a nice touch.

    Rescue's flavor text: If you only have time to save one thing, might as well save the thing that save the other things.

    Champion of the Flame and Valduk, Keeper of the Flame. Two new toys for the equip everything deck I'm building.

    At first, I dismissed Grow from the Ashes as a crappy Explosive Vegetation, but then I noticed that the lands come in untapped. Worth considering, at least.

    Mammoth Spider: when "giant" isn't quite big enough.

    Sapherd. Sapherd. Goddammit.

    They reprinted Aesthir Glider? I would not have called that.

    What's Amaranthine? Is that a material we've seen before?

    Finally Leonin Scimitar/Honed Khopesh has a flavor-neutral name. Watch Short Sword never get reprinted anyway.

    I like that there's a Thran Dynamo right behind the Voltaic Servant.

    Oh, wow, Weatherlight really is the only vehicle in the set.
