    Are we talking about a card draw cycle here or what?

  • posted a message on [[BaseSpec]] What burn spell would you rather see in Theros?
    Flame Javelin , but no in all seriousness with Scry being a thing in Theros I could totally see Magma Jet getting the nod, it's not overly powered and usually dips you to what you want to see be it lands or other burn / haste dudes.

  • posted a message on If there was an MTG anime, what kind of deck would the main character run?
    First of all this isn't Yu-Gi-Oh, if wizards were going to do an mtg based anime it wouldn't be based around this type of philosophy. It would be more like the setting of the video for the original Ravnica, follow a few different characters, in this case Planswalkers and have them use the mana of the plans there on to cast spells and so forth like they did in the old paper back magic books. It would probably be something similar to the comic that IDW is now doing, following a planswalker that was made from scratch. Nodding the Affirmative

  • posted a message on Pre-made cubes
    The whole point of having a cube and acquiring and building it yourself. I first started my own right around 3 years ago and with all the continuous building have just recently gotten to the 50% mark for foils etc to pimp it out. It's one of those things that knowing what it took to accomplish that feat is a joy in of itself. Would it be cool to completely pimp it out in one shot, sure, but then you loose your drive to care much about it until a new set is released. Honestly one of the best parts about having a cube is the continuous drive to keep acquiring that next piece. Kekeke

    There are a few good ones, Eric Klug is the best I've seen around.

  • posted a message on Player Rips Up Tokens in Front of Todd Anderson
    I heard about this a couple hours ago and almost made a thread about it then. Personally I think it's completely called for to ban the guy, it was a jerk move just to try and get your name out there. Having personally met Todd Anderson in the past I can say he was and still is one of the nicest magic players I've ever had the opportunity of meeting. In fact if it wasn't for his help writing me out a decklist I might have missed the chance to compete in the Sunday PTQ the weekend of GP: Columbus 2010. The guy that did this knows that he has never been and will never be at the grinder level Todd has achieved over the years and did this just so people would remember him for something, but failed to realize how much it would backfire on him. SCG did what they should have done, banned him indefinitely. Nodding the Affirmative

  • posted a message on [[Official]] [SCD] - Scavenging Ooze
    Quote from Adam W
    Is Scav Ooze really a DOTP promo, or was that just a rumor?

    If so, the price will surely drop once the promos find their way into the secondary market. It will probably settle in around $10-15 and then slowly creep up due to being a Modern and legacy staple.

    Yes it was the Steam Promo for Duels 2014 I think Ipad as well.

    If you want a playset, pick them up asap, they will jump again the more people realize how much of a powerhouse the card is late game.

    Quote from Georg51
    I'm not denying the exposure that Day 9 brought to MTG with his GP vids or his appearance in a feature match on the Pro Tour.

    I am, however, comepletely irate that he got a Pro Tour invite based entirely on his celebrity status. This seriously should be an outrage across the entire competitive MTG scene. He didn't belong there, and if WOTC wanted exposure, they should have brought Day 9 on as an announcer or guest speaker for a feature match - not let him take part in the actual tournament when he had ZERO qualifications for doing so.

    Let me put it this way - would the PGA let Justin Bieber play in the Player's Championship just to attract younger viewers? - NO.

    Day 9 didn't even know the rules text on HIS OWN CARDS at the Pro Tour - how embarrassing, seriously.

    I 100% agree with this, I myself have been doing a magic related series for going on 4 years now and wizards hasn't given me jack ****. No preview cards for new sets, nothing. It's not right the way wizards awards people special invites and other things based on how famous they are. They want an invite, win a PTQ like the rest of us or play enough of them and top 8 multiples without winning to show wizards that maybe you deserve a shot. Nodding the Affirmative

    This reminds me of Matt Kranstuber's cube box.

  • posted a message on Why exactly did Modern replace Extended?
    Modern replaced Extended for a couple reason, the biggest was that it gave a much larger card pool then the current Extended did, when Wizards started doing all the rules changes for formats Extended basically became Double Standard and didn't have a large enough card pool to define any real archetypes or if it did it was maybe 1 or 2 at most with whatever the best deck in Standard was a couple years ago was now the best deck in Extended. Also with Modern's ability is be a larger format it was inevitable that eventually magic would become Standard / Modern / Legacy.

  • posted a message on Your M14 Prelease Plans ?
    FNM followed by my 6th Midnight Pre-release at my LGS, assuming were going to have a smaller FNM followed by a larger pre-release like usual. Either way looking forward to about 10-11 hours of magic and maybe a fist fight (has nearly happened at about 4 am every time during the last 3).

    Quote from TehGrease
    Rob Snow has to be in the deck somewhere. Although after seeing the Red Wedding, I don't think that "undying" is fitting.

    And in case you didn't know, these exist.

    I assume you mean Rob Stark or Jon Snow as there is no Rob Snow in GoT. Slant

  • posted a message on Where are the duals?
    Quote from ErhnamDjinn
    they already mentioned in the m14 article there will be a batch of duals in Theros, and since m13 rotates as Theros comes in we shouldnt lack any duals in standard. I do wish Nimbus Maze and its kin show up

    100% agreed, been wanting to see it's and Grove of the Burnwillows cycles see print since Future Sight. That being said I found see wizards printing the Life Lands (Grove Cycle) in Theros.
