    our store would just set out a couple boxes of basic lands and we took what we wanted from there

    they had so many that they would tell us multiple times "go ahead and keep these we don't want them"

    My store is cheap. They lend out land and counters, but you have to return them.

    They sell land 5 for a nickle. I usually just pay for it, because you can never have too much land.

    you pick a legendary creature to use as your deck's commander

    the other 99 cards can only be colorless or a color that matches the commander without being in a color that the leader isn't (meaning a blue/red spell can't go in the deck if your commander is not both blue and red), and anything that produces mana of a color your commander isn't produces colorless instead

    you may only have one of any given non-basic land card

    the commander isn't shuffled into the deck, but remains out separate in the Command Zone from which it can be played at any time

    if it ever dies or gets exiled, you can choose to put it back in the Command Zone instead of the graveyard or exile zone, but if you do the next time you play it it costs 2 colorless more (this will stack, so if it has died or been countered or something twice and you put it back in the Command Zone twice, it will now cost 4 more)

    Also it is ridiculously fun if you can find a regular group of 3 or more people to play

    Which I, alas, can not

    aw, I was hoping you didn't have to pay the commander's mana cost

    paying 12 for iname makes him more or less useless

    also I doubt there are enough spirits out there to get enough creatures

    oh well

    are card rules mostly the same? Like can I have 4 of one card or can I only have 1 of each?

  • Options
    drp527drp527 We sacrifice our own That more may rise in their placeRegistered User regular
    only one of any card that's not a basic land

    although if something has a functional reprint (Kodama's Reach/Cultivate, Terramorphic Expanse/Evolving Wilds) you are free to have one of each

    Oh there are probably a good number of spirits (although it is in green/black which wasn't where they were most populous) but the problem is that most are likely terrible

    So I haven't played in a while.

    Do 90% of all new magic cards make all old cards obsolete and useless?

    I would say many of the powerful non creature cards of the past are unmatched today. Creatures however... If I didn't have to I would not pay 4 mana for a 4/4 like the one above.

    What I read a while ago was that wizards started to shift the focus to creatures more which is why we are seeing creatures that would have never been printed 10 years ago, yet we almost never see non-creature spells at the same level as they were 10 years ago.

    Well, to be fair, when ravenous baloth came out combat damage still went on the stack.

    My friend is working on a roguelike game you can play if you want to. (It has free demo)

    baloth was unremarkable before the m10 rules changes too. pretty much purely a case of creature quality going through the roof.

    hell, there was a time morphling was considered the best creature of all time. morphling!

    Oh man there's a mtg thread and I didn't see it.

    Opened Havengul Lich and Drogskol Reaver and Mikaeus for sealed today. Only managed 9th (but yay prize support for the top 12 at my store!).

    There's some weird cheese going on in DKA. Like Havengul Runebinder does exactly what a zombie deck does not want to be doing and yet both times I saw him he was surprisingly good.

    I had to miss the prerelease because of school stuff but I fully intend to be at the release tournament

    and even if I can't make that my friends and I have a habit of splitting a box of each new set and doing our own three-way draft, which will be close enough

    For sealed deck prerelease I got 3 mythics out of the 6 packs, including Sorin and the legendary equipment/demon thing. But I got some bad luck and lost a couple matches *sadface* Also the event took 5 and a half hours long Oo.

    I was 6th at the pre-released sealed after 4 rounds

    Top eight all decided to just split the prize pool, so I got eight packs

    My white blue black fliers/spirit/zombie deck kicked ass which really surprised me since I didn't have any bombs

    I definitely prefer consistent value creatures and average removal in sealed to opening bombs. I just felt like I should learn the bombs for draft; if I open a Havengul Lich I want to know how to build around it. Another card that surprised me in terms of value was call to the kindred; if my opponents left it on the board I could get out exactly the creatures I wanted, every time (it helped that I only had humans, zombies and spirits but still...)

    I leave you with this!

    Lich Lord of Unx accomplishes both of those goals at once, and then really just the default mill things

    Szadek, Circu, Glimpse the Unthinkable, Memory Sluice, perhaps Nemesis of Reason and/or Mindleech Mass

    edit: also if you have one or can get ahold of one, Sword of Body and Mind (and by way of similar effect, Raven Guild Master) could be a good one

    edit2: on the subject of token generation, Endless Ranks of the Dead, Havengul Runebinder, Quest for the Gravelord, Cemetery Reaper and if you really want overkill, Army of the Damned

    and Grave Titan and Cellar Door and....basically there are lots of ways this could go

    Was it in return for the escort's services

    Or was escort simply the occupation of the buyer

    I just started Playing again on MTGO because there in no real magic community within 90 minutes of this hole.

    Singles online are so much cheaper, and I made a pretty sweet Invisible Stalker block deck for nothing.

    Mono-black is giving me fits though. Damn sac effects. Need to look through the set to see what might help.

    I decided to look up what some of my paper cards would fetch on Ebay, namely Ravnica duals, a couple Tarmogoyfs, and Thoughtseizes.

    O_o I'm not sure I can part with them, but I think I ought to consider it.

    Yea. Really happy I bought that future sight box. My two goyfs will finance several standard constructed decks for me when I can finally find someone to trade them to.

    Wait.

    Morphling is not considered the best creature in magic anymore?
