  • posted a message on Dual Nature Fun!

    Okay...I'm generally a very competitive Spike/Johnny. The problem is most of the people I play with are quite the opposite, so I decided to design a deck that was nothing but fun. For everyone!

    The idea is to get as many Dual Natures out as possile along with a couple of Thunderscape Familiars. You'll need a Quirion Sentinel and a Sparkcaster in your hand. Once you get set up, here's how you 'go off':

    Cast Quirion Sentinel for G (because of the familiar discount). If you have two Dual Natures out, you'll get two token copies. Add RGG and cast Sparkcaster and bounce it and a Senitnel. Rince and repeat.

    The cool thing with Dual Nature is it allows you can gain a ton of life with the Finks; or you can shock the hell out of everyone with the Slinger; or draw a ton of cards with the Bears. Also, anything you play under the Dual Nature is copied, so mana shouldn't really be too much of a problem with all the BoPs and WoRs you'll have in play.

    Everything else should be pretty much explain itself. I know it's fragile and your opponent benifits from Dual Nature as much as you, but that's why it's so much fun! Try it in a free-for-all game and people won't pick on you as long as they think they're getting tons of free creature tokens. Then suddenly...Boom! Game over, I win!

    (BTW, this only usually works once, but dammit this deck is just so cool I had to post it...oh and I know a lot of the choices are sub-optimal. I was focusing on fun not efficient.)

  • posted a message on And Now a Fun Fact About Violence:
    Likewise as much as it is the individual's personal choice, much of the blame falls upon the parents themselves. Too often parents shield their children from violence and anger for fear that all it does is lead to hate. (Hey I sound like Yoda now! =) It is important also to note that many of these parents are also Christians who don't completely understand that it is okay to be angry and even violent according to their own personal beliefs.


    Funny that as much as video games and movies support anger and violence, the Bible shows that you should be allowed to punish those whom you deem "evil".

    After the events at VA Tech, I think it is also important to note that we as individuals need to step up and report suspicious behavior instead of trying to pretend it's non-existent. I know too many times where even I covered my ears when my neighbors were fighting violently because I felt "safer" if I wasn't involved. I'm just glad that I had some violent video games to turn on to release some aggression...

    No offense, but I notice that every single defense or half-defense of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" falls back upon speculation. It's always, "I would be worried that..." or, "Some might feel that..."

    Speculation? This is not speculation...it is simple fact. This is why subjects like gay marriage are such a hot button for political candidates. I'm not stating "I think...". I know that it would make a good portion of our military forces cry out in disapproval. It's just the way it is (right or wrong). Many who join the military support our countries values else they wouldn't be ready to die defending them. And, yes I agree that many of those values are out-dated.

    However, I am willing to back up my claims that although I feel this issue needs to be addressed, we first have to accept gays in our country before we allow them to defend it.


    Here's a link to the number of states/countries that support gay marriage. I simply want to point out that with only a few states allowing marriage, it would be easy to justify why the don't ask/don't tell policy is in place. It obviously is not something we as a nation are ready to accept yet. Likewise, a majority of the rest of the world either don't allow, or make it illegal for gays to marry. So yes, it would dwindle our potential allies.

    As a final note, I want to reemphasize the fact that I don't agree with the don't ask/don't tell policy. I think is out-dated and discriminating. But I understand that change comes slowly (esp. in the military) so I will just have to wait until the rest of the country (and the world) learns to accept it as well.

    I don't care if they're are gays or women in the military. However, I feel that most countries that would serve alongside us if our forces included women would far outnumber those that would do the same for an openly homosexual individual.
    Nonetheless, if you are entertaining the thought of joining the military, allow me to give you a word of advice:
    Be willing and ready to follow pointless orders and guidlines. The military is rich in tradition (both good and bad) and above all else those who serve must be ready to accept this.
    Now, as for questioning it in general...go for it. But realize that once you join, you sacrifice many of your personal rights (free speech for example) by agreeing to defend them. *Shrugs* Just the way it works...

    I am also in the Air Force, and I fell obligated to post something I think maybe overlooked. Now I don't have any personal issues with homosexuals in the military but here is something I haven't seen mentioned yet.

    Because the military requires allies to function properly, it is important to realize that the way it presents itself is incredibly important. That is partially why certain outdated rules are still in place. For us to legalize legal drug use, sodomy, or homosexuals in the military; we lose potential allies who believe that said we support them by not outlawing them.

    I agree that it is out-dated and needs to be re-worked. Perhaps this point will give a little new insight to the "bigger picture". I wouldn't mind homosexuals in the military, but I know many who would and I believe the "don't ask, don't tell" policy is as close as we are going to get to solving it any time soon.

    Finally, I know that females in the military causes a loss for potential allies, but screw any country who doesn't support that! Also, I despise those that attack the individuals who are in the military instead of the government issuing the orders. I fully enjoy serving my country, and I volunteered for it so I accept some of the loss of liberties I must endure to do so.

    Well that's that...enjoy!

  • posted a message on Just a funny read...
    I hope no one minds, but I was scanning some old Storyline threads and came across one I thought was pretty funny:


    It was started in July of 2005 and it's pretty amazing how much they told us of the Time Spiral storyline over a year before it's release.

    Wonder what else they told us that we might've missed...

    Hey Cory,

    Just finished the Dissesion Novel....It was great, and I felt like I was watching an action movie with all the different stories going on at the same time like that. Great job! (BTW got it in a Fat Pack)

    My ?: Can you tell us (or at least provide a hint or a clue) where Niv-Mizzet ran off to? I got the feeling he Planeswalked away from what Feather said at the end of the book.

    Thanks for you time and a great several hours of my time...(Just started reading about 5 hours ago and finished already Smile

  • posted a message on Cards that don't make sense, flavor wise
    How about on the card Ageless Entity. Bet nobody really noticed that Mirrodin creates it own life? Does this mean that there are beings besides just Slobad and Glissa romping around? (I know I'm probably looking to much into this, but I just find it wierd that the card states that the Tangle itself created the Elemental not the trolls or elves.) Someone got input on that?

  • posted a message on the dual lands reprint rumor
    I don't know if anyone is still reading this thread, but I've always wondered when Wizards would make an ability like this:

    Land - Plains Island
    Regulate 2 (You may have a maximum of 1 copy of this card in your deck)
    TAP: Add W or U to your mana pool.
