Vanilla Forums has been nominated for a second time in the CMS Critic "Critic's Choice" awards, and we need your vote! Read more here, and then do the thing (please).
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
so Time Spiral is coming out soon for MTG (for those of you who don't know what that is, try checking the official magic website, they've been running card previews for a while). What are you all looking forward to?
I love that flash has finally been keyworded, but I'm not a fan of "split second". I'm trying to find the differences between the old interrupt cards and the new "split second" cards, and also I don't like the stack-headaches cards of that type can lead to in casual play. "So can I activate my guildmage's activated ability? (no) How about flipping over my morph creature? (yes)"
Suspend also seems like a really fun mechanic, and I love the whole old school / new school approach (seems like the perfect set to follow Coldsnap). However, it does seem hard for any set to follow up Ravnica (the 10 "guilds" seem so natural to the game, I imagine most people will be refering to their 2 color decks by Ravnica guilds for a long time.
So what do you guys think? Looking forward to it optimistically? Cautiously? Ignoring it because you burnt out recently?
