Using alternate art and promo cards is an art of cheating now? What logic is this even?
Promo Colonnades and Expedition Hallowed Fountain look very different from each other by the way just saying.

Sep 23, 2018It is true that in games, lands tend to get stacked together in a way that may be hard for players to identify from across the table. And UW control players tend to accumulate a lot of lands on the board so I understand how the lands could be hard to identify.Posted in: Modern
HOWEVER, that does not mean the board state is unknown, you can ask them to spread their lands out to see. For anything that's open information like graveyard, lands, permanents, exile zone etc they're obliged to let you look through them so you know exactly what they have. If they don't want to let you look, call a judge. That's what the judges are there for.
The 'problem' with the Dryad Arbor incident was that it was made to look exactly like a basic land. Nothing was being hidden.
If you're unwilling to make use of judges and systems that are there to ensure the games are played properly, that's on you.
Oh and you initially talked about cards of different language being cheating, and when that was shut down, you switched to talking about opponents hiding information from you and then talk about 'feel bad moments' when it seems like you just didn't bother checking. So it just seems like you're making excuses.
Sep 23, 2018If you've been playing Modern for 3 years and can't recognize the art of a Celestial Colonnade...Posted in: Modern
Even if it's the Buy-box promo version with different art, nothing's stopping you from asking the guy or a judge what the card is if you can't recognize it.
Why not start with some self-examination instead of accusing others of cheating in order to find excuses for yourself.
Sep 17, 2018Yup. I didn't attend day 2 because I would be stuck at the venue till late at night. I was 5-0-3 going into day 2 so an early loss would mean my whole day is wasted. Decided to hang with my friends in the hotel instead.Posted in: Modern
Sep 17, 2018Went undefeated day 1 of GP Hong Kong with 5 wins and 3 draws with PV's Bant Spirits list almost card-for-card other than fetchlands. Deck is legit. Beat UB turns, Jeskai control, green tron, 2 UW control. Drew with 2 UW control and UR wizards.Posted in: Aggro & Tempo
Did not attend day 2 due to the typhoon.

bridgevine showing up for both GPs. relatively poor showing for humans in stockholm, but it did well in hong kong. similarly UW control didnt show up in hong kong, but had a dominating performance in stockholm.
I attended Hong Kong and I can tell you that UW control was all over the place. Personally matched up against UW control 4 times in day 1. Honestly quite surprised that there wasn't a single one in the top 8.
