    No bear berserker?!

    Also: no sweet rolls for me to steal. Lame set is lame.

    Why yes, I'll play Hazezon with his twin children, Phylath and Maja.

    The name may be a reference to something in the story we're as of yet unfamiliar with, or it may be an oblique reference to Loki; a trickster renowned for assuming many different animal forms, whose own name is etymologically derived from the "Swedish dialect-word Locke ('spider')."

    What are some other evasive creatures with deathtouch so Fynn can band up with them? All I can think of right now is Ice-Fang Coatl (which admittedly is already pretty good).


    I wish that banding conferred keywords, that would be one way of rehabilitating it. Kind of like go-wide soulbond.

    Berserker isn't a profession, it's a state of mind.

    This will be the rare I get 3 normal and 2 foil in a set booster box.

    This card could be an uncommon instead of wasting a rare slot. It's a constructed piece of garbage.


    It sounds like you were expecting something with more of a mythic power level, and that's just unrealistic. The card is fine.

    You didn't talk with me about it at all this past week, and you have more than some small experience with me personally - my behavior, my self-expression - on your private discord server. As the person running this thing, and the very person who exhorted me to play in the first place, that should have been ample good faith. If that were ever in doubt, I expect it wouldn't have taken you this long to make it known. Instead you what, cave to pressure because... why? It was inconvenient to start sign-ups over again, or wait it out? Your self-interest in preserving the game here, on this site, won't permit you to humor me because it would alienate enfranchised players who won't stop doing the very thing you also want them to stop doing? Osie, if there aren't enough people in the larger community that you can't fill a 7-player game, this experience isn't going to help rectify your larger problems. Instead you're sending a clear message that people who take issue with the word 'lynch' aren't welcome here.

    Today I was kicked out of a Mafia game, and for all that the greater loss was had by you.

    Osie, I'm not satisfied with our conversation. We can either continue it in private (soon), or we can continue it here. I prefer the former.

    To the rest of you: I'm curious to know why this ...
    I also do not have malicious intent, and I'm not here to ruin anyone's good time. To that end I solemnly swear to: make a good faith effort to play the game (it will be my first); not "throw a tantrum"; and not quit the game out of spite. If something does slip out I expect whoever is hosting the game to send a PM, and that person can simply edit their post while we continue uninterrupted. Easy peasy.

    The only reason we might have a problem, I think, is if someone is doing it deliberately (and despite my request - I make no demands here) even after host intervention. Osie may have to ask me not to participate altogether if he feels that other players won't humor me.


    ... wasn't enough to assuage or prevent you from bullying Osie into kicking me out preemptively. I was told the proper way to have an influence on this community was to make a good faith effort to become part of it, and that's exactly what I did. Is this how you grow? Is this the impression you want potential new players to walk away with?

    @lynnalynn - Read the Planeswalker Bio thread a few posts down in this forum. Or don't, because its idiotic and the reason that thread got locked.

    Though I'm sure the same posters will drag it in here now and f up this thread too.


    I'm pretty sure that's what just happened, considering the question was posed in response to post #136.

    Apropos of nothing, I feel like too many people misunderstand what the word 'confirmed' means.

    @Osie

    I will happily join your game if nobody uses the word 'lynch' (including in their sig block).

    We all actively try to avoid that word, but it is so deeply engrained in our game vocabulary that it sometimes slips out.
    For a European like me the word has no connotation whatsoever, so I actively must think about not using it.
    Maybe playing with someone that has real problems with it helps me putting it in the “words not to use” part of my vocabulary.
    My advice: don’t sign up if you’re going to throw a tantrum if the word slips in a post.
    And if you do join and see the word, kindly ask us not to use it rather than getting angry. We do not have malicious intent.

    Here we go

    https://twitter.com/tobyelliott/status/1339575802007056388

    1. You can play either side
    2. Doesn’t matter which side you use the commander tax rises per-cast no matter which side you cast
    3. equipped creatures with the equipment side of the commander it will not deal commander damage unless the equipment is animated and it’s attacking (via Karn, Silver Golem/March of the Machines)
    4 both sides are your commander


    I´m still confused as how this work.

    1. Can I use Halvar as my commander and still have the equipment in my deck?
    2 When Halvar dies, goes to the command zone and is being cast again can i then choose to cast my commander as the creature or equipment?


    MDFC cards still have a front face. While it's in any other zone besides the battlefield, it counts only as that front face.

    https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/feature/zendikar-rising-mechanics-2020-09-01

    Most of the rules that govern how transforming double-faced cards apply to the new modal variety. While a modal double-faced card is in your hand, your graveyard, or exile, it has the characteristics of its front face only. So, if you're searching your library for a land card, you can't find a modal double-faced card whose front face isn't a land card. If an effect allows you to cast instant spells from your graveyard, you could cast Valakut Awakening, but you couldn't play Valakut Stoneforge.
