Just imagine going back to 2011-2015 and telling people that foil Tarmogoyfs would be given out as door prizes at a prerelease
The Secret Lair advent calendar thing seems really sweet, but $150 is a decent chunk of money. I suppose it's an okay rate when compared to other SL drops though, lol.
$1000 for 4 packs of a new Collectors Edition seems kinda excessive though. But heck, new official proxies for cubes sounds kinda cool!

Legal issues. An article I read said the cards are "notably not 'transforming' as due to legal and trademark purposes the cards can’t say the robots transform."

It’s 7 right?
we forgot something that taps for 7 total……together
What's all this "we" stuff, that was literally the first thing I thought when I saw 7 lmao
Plus every Tron player ever sees 7 and instinctively thinks "hmm can I use this in Tron"
I honestly would have been surprised if he DIDN'T have 7 on him somewhere

I didn't realize that Grixis Illusionist, Tideshaper Mystic, Dream Thrush, and Reef Shaman were EDH mana fixing all stars. /s
that looks very very possible for older formats outside standard
1.the Shocklands/triomes will easily get you deeper than two
2. It’s instant speed
3. It put cards in the graveyard so that’s beautiful in delirium/goyf/flashback
4. It’s only 3 mana
5. Even after all this it’s only 2 life.
Yeah, this card looks pretty damn good. The closest parallel I'd say is Painful Truths, although this card has a few decided advantages despite only drawing two cards instead of three. Instant speed and potentially seeing more than three cards deep are really big, especially when you care more about card quality than quantity.
Quote from protoaddict »Llanowar Stalker seems like it should have implications in elf decks in every format.
Is this a troll post?

Also I think it's neat that even if you don't have any other legends in play, he still gives himself +1/+1.

I suppose I'll reserve my anger for his disfigurement. I really love everything in the art except his Ulamog arms, which are an unsightly redesign tbh
??? But Ertai's had those arms since like 2001? You're gonna be mad about a design choice that they made 21 years ago?

????? Clockspinning? Whim of Volrath?
Eh, my bold prediction is that it'll settle into the $3-5 range unless either:
1. Something is printed that goes crazy with it and players scramble to build decks around it, or
2. The card becomes heavily desirable in the distant future and supply dries up.

Because using one card to go from 5 mana to 10 mana is pretty strong, I'd reckon.
Aug 21, 2022Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Beeeeecause they want to minimize the number of different tokens that are used in each set?
(Don't ask me why cards like Akroan Crusader and Thatcher Revolt get their own tokens)
I agree that it really doesn't make sense from a flavor perspective.

Making changelings with Black Market Connections doesn't do anything with cast triggers.

Yeah, Thrill of Possibility isn't in the main set. The art and flavor text are even from the Theros Beyond Death printing.
EDIT: Well this aged like fine milk lmao

Nov 30, 2017foam_dome posted a message on If You Can't Take Criticism of Jeremy Hambly, You're Part of the Problem"someone (Jeremy) had the audacity to criticize someone (Christine)and Criticism is Not Harassment no matter how some people wish to construe it as such."Posted in: Articles
Jeremy went far beyond objective criticism and publicly persecuted Christine for nearly a year. He may not have personally hounded her with hateful private messages, but his actions directly resulted in months of direct online harassment from his fan base. You can't seriously look at all the crap Jeremy said and not call it harassment. When you hold that much influence over such a large congregation of people, you have a basic responsibility to not give them the idea that these sorts of heinous actions are socially acceptable. He could have easily criticized Christine without his plethora of disparaging personal remarks against her, and without encouraging thousands of his followers to constantly flame her. The fact that he did do these things, and unapologetically so, is what makes it harassment.
"The protests, mobs, riots all a sign that someone is incapable of accepting the opinion of others."
You mean accepting the opinion that bullying, harassing, and dehumanizing innocent human beings is okay? Yeah no, that sort of mentality has no place in our society, and entertaining that line of thinking will only hold us back as a species.
"someone who disagreed with the Nazi party during there rain ended up at best in a concentration camp at worst with a bullet in there head."
If you think the experience of a Nazi concentration camp is the best case scenario compared to a quick and painless death, then I can't even fathom how detached you are from reality. I encourage you to quantum-leap into the body of an emaciated Jewish concentration camp prisoner circa 1944 and ask yourself, "Is this better than not suffering at all?"
"but the moment you stop respecting the opinion of others and start attacking, harassing them, posting there personal info and calling for a public lynching joust because thy sad something you don't agree with, that is the point I stop respecting you, that is the point you have become a Nazi"
Is that not exactly what Jeremy did?
"people can not differentiate between Nazi and centre right"
Actually, as the years have progressed, our Overton Window has been shifting steadily to the right. Democratic socialism (a mild leftist ideology) has become regarded as far-left, and centrism has become regarded as center-left. On the other side, traditional conservatism has shifted to the center of America's political spectrum, with semi-fascist ideologies occupying the moderate- to far-right.
In other words, the more that neo-Nazi ideologies become normalized and accepted as a valid political platform, the closer the center right drifts toward Nazism.
I don't call right-thinkers Nazis. I call Nazis Nazis. I know a lot of Trump voters with opinions that I strongly disagree with, and I don't call them Nazis because they're not Nazis. They don't believe in things like a one-party government or ethnic cleansing or the removal of basic human rights (except maybe health care, but that's an entirely different can of worms), so I can't in good conscience call them Nazis.
Do I think Jeremy is a Nazi? Not at the moment, because he hasn't shown me any reason to think he's a Nazi. But I do think he's a scumbag with a startling lack of empathy for other humans, and that his career as a psychologically abusive and hate-mongering content creator should be completely and utterly destroyed.
