    Commander is a politics game at heart and you don't always win by drawing a bunch of cards.
    You never saw a Griselbrand EDH deck in action, I take it.

    Oh, my god. Bone Dragon can make so many bat tokens with Desecrated Tomb.
    Bone Dragon can make two bat tokens with Desecrated Tomb. Read the card again. DT gives you one token when "one or more" creatures leave your 'yard. Bone Dragon exiles seven cards (which might not be creature cards), and then reanimates itself.

    Played a game yesterday where the player on my right cast Umbral Mantle, which would have ended the game on the spot if it resolved. Player on my left cast Demonic Consultation for Force of Will to counter it.

    Unfortunately for him, Force ended up being third from the bottom of his deck, but he did stop the combo.

    Quote from darrenhabib »
    OK, so can I untap Magosi, the Waterveil twice with Deserted Temple (because a copied activation), to stack four extra turns and skip two?
    That's not possible, since part of the cost for getting the extra turn from Magosi is bouncing it.

    Last time I cast Demonic Consultation, I named Necrotic Ooze. And I exiled at least one part of almost every single Nooze combo in the deck before finding it. >,<

    On the other hand, I did manage to get Umbral Mantle and Paradise Mantle down (second-to-last card in the deck...) as well as Viridian Joiner, so I just pumped all my creatures to arbitrary size and swung for lethal.

    2006 regionals. Im playing UB Fish, opponent is playing BWG Goodstuff. G1 opponent doesnt resolve a single spell thanks to 14 main counters in my deck. After i give a small chuckle and comment "thats rough". He kinda chuckles as well and agrees but is visibly annoyed. G2 he plays double Tribe Elder. Then makes the mistake of sacrificing both simultaneously I play Shadow of Doubt and full on belly laugh. Didnt mean anything by it but felt terrible nonetheless
    Unless he explicitly responded to the ability of one on the stack with activating the other, he was proposing a shortcut where the second is activated after resolving the first. You shouldn't have been able to Shadow of Doubt both of them just because he physically picked up both cards together.

    Great card. As simple as it is, I really like the art, too.
    I prefer the Portal art (a weathervane)

    Quote from Kryptnyt »
    Timesifter is a card that needs no combos in order to be cancerous to the board state of a multiplayer game. You know when the monoblue player pulls out 12 extra turns and the game is over and you might as well concede? Not so with Timesifter; You can't concede, because there's a nonzero chance that you might get a turn again. But then you keep exiling land after land from the top and pretty soon you've found yourself 8 turns behind. Waiting for a turn you're not sure is coming is like some kind of ancient monkey torture.
    I used to play in a meta with one guy who ran 5C chaos. One of his favorite things was imprinting Timesifter on Prototype Portal. It was awful.

    Quote from PhroX »
    One of my favourite turn 1 plays in the format, especially if I'm going first.
    +1. I will always snap-keep an opening hand with Winds of Change and an untapped red source. The rest of the hand doesn't matter.

    It was even better when EDH used partial paris mulligans, because everyone spent time sculpting their opening hands, and then WoC ruins it. Grin

    If you go Naya colors, you can run Mirrorwood Treefolk, which is absolutely painful to see Lured up. (A single activation of its ability will redirect all combat damage dealt to it for the turn, barring first/double strike.)

    Infernal Judgement looks good if you face a lot of eldrzi....the new art for Reliquary Tower looks good

    What irks me is the amount of reprints we got.
    It's a core set. You should be expecting half the set to be reprints.

  • posted a message on Backup Wincons for Prossh when Food Chain is exiled? Storm, Voltron-Control or something else for Plan B?
    I mean, the Prossh precon came with an infinite combo that didn't require Food Chain. Primal Vigor + Tooth and Claw + 2 creatures = infinite 3/1 creatures dying and ETBing. Stalking Vengeance turned that into infinite damage. That's with zero modifications to the precon.

    And you don't need to go infinite to win, either. Prossh has omnombreathing, and makes his own token army. Smack people for commander damage. Or just throw kobolds at people with Goblin Bombardment, or burn them to death with Impact Tremors and Purphoros, God of the Forge.

    One of my favorite ways to kill people in my Prossh deck (although it only kills one person) is Burn at the Stake, simply because the image of a bunch of kobolds dancing around a planeswalker as they burn him alive is hilarious to me. It only takes 14 creatures to kill someone at 40 life, and usually by the time you've got a bunch of creatures and can cast BatS, somebody is much lower than 40.

  • posted a message on Teaching kid Magic with Battlebond
    I agree that 8 is too young for a tournament. I was matched against a kid who must have been 9 or 10 at the Dominaria prerelease, and I had to correct his errors approximately once every other turn. I won the round, but I didn't especially enjoy it. I also told him after the last game that if he had cast the Saga he accidentally revealed in his hand turn turn before I killed him, he would have been able to win the game (I'm not sure which Saga it was, but I saw the frame, and simply casting the Saga would have untapped his Traxos; paired with the Grunn he also had and my single blocker, he would have had lethal).

  • posted a message on WotC in talks with GameStop to host Magic Tournaments and Events
    i dont like this idea at all. it will destroy local card shops. theres a card shop next to the gamestop at the mall where im from. i dont want that card shop shut down. i really dislike these corporate fartknockers. i stopped buying games from gamestop like 5 years ago. i think they are vultures
    I seriously doubt it would cause your card shop to shut down, even if this goes through. GameStops just don't have the play space that LGSes do, nor the anemities that many LGSes have.

    If this actually becomes a thing, I don't foresee GS spending millions of dollars converting their stores to be more friendly to Magic players, and so the only GS locations that would see much Magic tournament traffic would be the ones without an LGS nearby.

  • posted a message on Lands in front?
    Quote from Melkor »
    someone told me that there had been a ruling that lands had to be played in the back, it was the only place they could be played unless swinging with a manland. is that the case? if so, when did that change? I was used to it being annoying but totally legal.
    There is such a rule, but it exists for consistent filmed coverage, and doesn't apply at lower-level games.
