    There was an interview with Richard Garfield where he defended the business model by saying that hobbies cost money.

    Unfortunately I don't think the interviewer asked if he was familiar with the business model of Dota 2 (only charging for cosmetics and access to statistics in-game).

    I'm playing Eldrazi Stompy at this Legacy Classic and my first round opponent was playing Sneak and Show. We got selected for a random deck check after game 1.

    I went on to win the match 2-0, and look up at the clock. There's still 22 minutes left in the round.

    Eldrazi Stompy is good?

    Edit: Dropping Endbringer against Emrakul off a Show and Tell really throws off a Sneak and Show player.

    As an aside, I'm going to give Artifact credit where they've today announced (in response to OVERWHELMING criticism) that they're going to let you do phantom draft tournaments with friends at no cost, and likewise there's going to be a no-entry fee no-reward phantom draft mode added. Those are very positive changes and I'm definitely gonna respect that. A $20 entry fee to do infinite phantom drafts is a significantly better deal and makes me consider it a much better product.

    Yeah normally the Forerunner having 3 toughness puts a hard limit on how far that nonsense can go but if they're indestructible you keep doing it until you say to stop.

    Of note any Polyraptors made after the Song's trigger resolved would not be indestructible but since they effectively split into five copies (who also split into five copies...) that doesn't make much of a difference.

    Why is Angelic Renewal not using the "died" wording?

  • BoomerAang SquadBoomerAang Squad Registered User regular
    Why is Angelic Renewal not using the "died" wording?

    Probably because it mentions going to your graveyard rather than any graveyard.

    Technically it could have similar wording as Athreos, God of Passage and still work the same so... *shrug*

    Yeah it's a peculiarity of checking things going to your graveyard specifically. If you steal a creature and it dies, Renewal won't trigger.

    Turns out he was trying to screw my dog.
    Once I was taking a poop at a restaurant and a kid crept underneath the door into my stall. I let out a big fart and then he threw up all over the floor in front of me and I just stared at him.

    I got 2nd place at a PAX Unplugged single elimination Ravnica draft (boros, off a P1P1 Aurellia)! That got me 12 tickets and Battlebond packs were only 1 tick a piece so now I have 12 packs of battlebond. I can't wait to play this with 3 other folks later this week.

    My draft was so much fun too. Everyone in it was so nice and friendly. Lots of dads and other folks who hadn't played in a while, mixed with digital only folks and new players. I lost to a very nice guy who when a judge asked if we were gonna split looked me dead in the eye and said "No I want to play it out" and I knew i was in trouble. Guy had a pitch perfect dimir control deck that just destroyed me. I don't know how you play around that much removal as a boros player. I guess I should have held the creatures in my hand and waited to drop as many as I could on one turn?

    I ain't even mad. His deck was a sight.
