Dec 23, 2010If I play a Genesis Wave for, lets say 7, and I hit a Rampaging Baloths and some lands and I decide to put them all into play. Will the landfall trigger on the Baloth or no because they all come into play at the same time?Posted in: Magic Rulings Archives

I'm up for a clan draft on Sunday. I'm flexible when it comes to the time. I stay indoors most of the time now anyways, as it's still very cold. Consistently -20 degrees Celcius (about -5 Fahrenheit?), and the last couple of days it's been down to -25 and even -30. Late February shouldn't be that cold!
-20C is precisely -4F. So yeah, pretty damn cold.
I just won a couple of Alara drafts, both with 5CC, since that's how I roll. In the second I had Sigil of Distinction (again passed to me) and Martial Coup, although I never ever saw the Coup in the seven games I played. In the first match I was one down and my opponent had superior board position, but I had Fusion Elemental and a bunch of mana. He alphaed me down to 4 life or so, and then I untapped, played Sigil for about infinite, and took down his 20 life in one shot with the Elemental
It's nice to see someone appreciate the 5-color deck in limited formats. Back in Shards block draft I would often go with what I called 5 Color Surprise. The big surprise was when I would get my mana base in order and play Exploding Borders for 5 damage on turn four.

Rick James’ grave says nothing
on being a Superfreak.
It calls him a father, a husband
a legend, but nowhere on that
pale gray slab does the word
The name is engraved heavily
Thick and flat the name reads
James Ambrose Johnson, Jr.
This is the man’s real name.
not the name he chose for himself
once the decision to get
Rich and famous
Got a hold of him and turned a
boy from Buffalo New York
into a glitter soaked funk laying
The ground around the grave
is uneven, and there are
More weeds than flowers
but the stone is well-
Polished and taken care of.
I tug at the weeds
Aimlessly. Hoping to clean up the grave
of this deceased pop star.
The roots pull up pieces of dirt
that remind me of small chocolate candies.
I stop my amateur gardening.
I fear to disturb the
Calcite bones of our beloved,
our dearly departed and passed

So today I'm watching him play 2v2 at lunch, and he's piloting a more-or-less block constructed form of dredge. I ask him if he's running any L.E.D.'s. He says that he knows he has two or three, but doesn't remember what they do.
Lion's Eye Diamond. I explain it to him.
Yeeeah. He's remaking his dredge deck tonight.
Hahahahaha. I have a friend like that too, although I don't remember anything quite as good as forgetting L.E.D. in dredge. A few years back I remember a friend trying to build UG Madness for Extended and completely forgetting Basking Rootwalla altogether. He was totally shocked when we told him...after the PTQ.

Feb 21, 2010ep. posted a message on Good reasons to draft ZZW over ZWW or the other way?There is less room for abusive deckbuilding in ZZW. Imgaine someone having 5 Wind Zendikon's and a pair of Treasure Hunt's main deck. Also, it's the format that provides the most stable and balanced draft experience (if that can be said in this disgustingly black skewed format.) Finally, it's what WotC says we should be drafting, so why not.Posted in: Limited Archives
Feb 21, 2010Posted in: Retired Clan ThreadsQuote from bateleurIt's not a Limited PT - you're a little out of date!
It's a modern format PTQ: Standard/Draft/Standard. Not that LSV's achievement so far (update: just 3-0'ed the Quarters) is anything less than absurdly impressive anyway.
Whoops. My mind was thinking about the Qualifiers for San Diego, which were sealed then draft. Even though he had to play constructed, standard no less, it's still an impressive feat. Go LSV!
