    Just got back from my second prerelease this weekend. Went 4-1 with the jankiest U/G deck I've ever seen.

    Highlight of the day is probably swinging with my Aqueous Form'd Daring Thief and seeing Scourge of Fleets on top with the scry, then next turn trading my Pin to the Ground'd Shipbreaker Kraken for my opponents Nessian Asp with the Thief before Scourging his board and getting the Kraken back.

    Hm... Is this an instant combo with Aurelia?

    It's in instant combo with any sweeper you have in your hand.

    EDIT - Oh, nevermind, I thought that said "at end of turn"

    I went 3-3 in a 6 round pre-release today. I have never played that much magic at once but it was a lot of fun. I picked blue, got keranos and tried to make a R/U deck but it was too awful. I had also pulled a godsend, sylvan caryatid and silent avenger so I went G/W for the remaining 5 rounds and did alright. Godsend though was nuts, if I got it I wouldnt lose the game.

    After 4-0ing the friday event me and a friend got 3rd in 2-headed Giant today. I wouldn't normally care so much but I have been on a hell of a losing streak and have been making a lot of effort in improving my diet and focus.

    I think I'm gonna build an RG aggro deck. Slam down some Prophetic Flamespeaker, rush him with Ghor-Clan Rampagers (i really just need an excuse to use my promos)

    EDIT: Reminder that starting this week, the FNM promo is 168.jpg

    And for playing in an event this weekend, you will also receive 26.jpg

    I pulled a useless (to me) Prophetic Flamespeaker at the prerelease, now I'm using it to finally get a Sublime Archangel from one of my friends

    Because I want to be called even worse names when I play my Avacyn EDH deck

    I don't think flamespeaker is all that good, at least right now

    Ghor clan and madcap are the only spells worth using on him and his ability is only good vs control but I'd rather Phoenix there anyway, or even just Chandra

    Long story short rdw is shit right now for many reasons and "because they didn't have flamespeaker" is not one of them

    mtg familiar for android displays the last 5 operations by default, and groups a series of quick presses together as one action (so -5 then +1 would be listed as -4)

    of course I get around this whole thing by never doing competitive events

    Anything not paper is the devil. Being able to track the game's history is really useful, especially if life totals get out of sync.

    I agree that pad=Paper is more accurate...

    Also I have NEVER in all my years of magic seen people flip cards at the end of "turns" to determine who wins.

    I've seen people do it to complain about how "they would have won in just one more turn!, no really, look, ok sure you had a..but..no..I had a ...and then this bolt.." but it never determined the actual outcome.

    Yeah but that was at the start of your turn right? And it was literally do draw or die so there was no downside

    What Elbasunu is describing sounds bizarre and I've never heard of it

    So, I occasionally read the MTGSalvation forums as they seem to be the largest strictly Magic-focused forums out there (outside of the wasteland that is the official ones). Theres a lot of good stuff on there, but MAN they act like silly geese sometimes.

    Like in reaction to the judge ruling above.

    There is a MASSIVE amount of whining. People are, in completely seriousness, arguing that this ruling is terrible because it'll ban pacemakers and hearing aids. Other people are throwing tantrums because "what if I dont want to bring paper to events?"

    Dear Heliod, grow up people

    The MTGSalvation forums have a lot of good content, especially if you're looking for guides and discussion about established decks (even if they aren't tier one) but it is definitely as Forum as Forum gets.
