    Just had a wild ass turn in AFR Premier Draft, I wish I had been recording it. This is my deck for this draft:

    5gu3inp2elsp.jpg

    In the final turn of the game I had the Hobgoblin Bandit Warlord, Hobgoblin Captain, Delina, and a Swarming Goblins in play. Attacked with everything but the Warlord, Delina trigger on the Swarming Goblins. First roll: natural 20, second roll 3. A pair of Swarming Goblins comes into play attacking and I get 4 goblin tokens off their rolls. Use the Warlord to deal 6 to my opponents face, enough damage gets through to close it out.

    I had a friend build a paper copy of the mtgo vintage cube circa whenever they did it and a lot of the cards were real and they just got neat proxies of the power and duals and some other big things. Then another friend went a step beyond that and got an entire cube in proxy. No one should care about the "authenticity" of game pieces when playing games with their friends .

    I've written sharpie on a swamp "URBORG'S TOMB" and people let me play that in casual commander.

    Humor can be dissected as a frog can, but dies in the process.

    My lgs had a firm "proxies are fine as long as you put a little effort into them" rule for in house commander tournaments which was actually fun because people would make sweet alt art stuff.

    Then some kid used hentai for his and that was the end of that

    That is one of the problems when I look at playmats as few if ever have the art I would like and all to often it's sexual or hentai

    I don't think I've ever seen a playmat I've liked. Some of them are very pretty or cool looking, but I haven't yet seen one that looks good that doesn't also make it harder to parse the cards on it.

    Suppressing "natural" growth while encouraging Phyrexian proliferation through the terraforming effect of oil spread?

  • KalTorakKalTorak One way or another, they all end up in the Undercity.Registered User regular
    I think it's mostly just because the Praetors always have these extreme "Big Good Thing for Us vs. Equivalent Bad Thing for Them" static effects. The Big Good effect is defined by the Praetor's color and the Bad effect is just the opposite, and often pretty off-color-pie. E.g. White basically never gets mass "-X/-X" effects, but mass Anthems are in white, so because Elesh Norn's good effect is a big Anthem, her bad effect is a -X/-X just to emphasize the Phyrexian "Us vs. Them." (Sheoldred got lucky because reanimation and edicts are both black)

    so new Vorinclex doubles counters, which is a very green effect, and the opposite of that is reducing counters by half, which isn't really an effect any color gets (maybe white on a couple cards).

    I think, at the core of it, Vorinclex is the stand-in for hunger. He gets all the food, and you get none of it. The NPH version was fairly similar, but instead of partitioning mana at a 4 to 1 ratio for your opponents, it's something else.

    From a flavor standpoint, none of the Praetors really make sense. But from a color pie standpoint, and game mechanics, they absolutely work. But, like, how does Elesh Norn give the enemy team -2/-2? I look at her and die? Eh.

    ugh, just had a draft opponent play two mythic dragons and that rare vampire. I got the satisfaction of taking them all out with common removal (Minimus Containment x2 and You Hear Something On the Watch once the blue dragon attacked) but then drew lands for the rest of the game.

  • SolarSolar Registered User regular
    Vorinclex is an out of context problem for Kaldheim. It's a plane where grand sagas hold great weight, but he cuts right through that. Vorinclex doesn't care about the mighty deeds. He just hunts you down anyway.

    Nailing the blue mythic dragon with my night watchman's traps was one of the absolute highlights of my prerelease last night.

    Iymrith's conditional Ward is an interesting ability - it reminds me of good old Dragonlord Ojutai (both abilities are sort of pared-down versions of Ojutai actually). But with Ojutai, if he was attacking and your opponent tried to remove him, you could protect him with an untap effect. Since Ward triggers when Iymrith becomes the target and isn't checked on resolution like hexproof, you don't get a chance to protect him with an untap effect. If they ever target him while he's tapped, the opportunity for Ward to trigger is gone.

    Makes perfect sense to me. Elesh Norn has aura that weakens non-phyrexians and strengthens phyrexians.

    4-0'd the prerelease I went to because Ebondeath is an incredibly fucked up card in sealed, and I drew it in 7 of 9 games by turn 8, 3 of those by turn 4.

    I played against a super dedicated dungeon-diving deck today, and holy shit was that annoying. Between them scrying, proccing various passives, dropping tokens, and other assorted crap, every turn felt like it took half an hour. Easily the slowest, most annoying loss I've had in my (admittedly short) time on Arena so far.

    It did unlock the green-white life gain deck though, which I'm really enjoying, so I guess it was worth it.

    Living my best life now by responding to “Your Go” when I take longer than a second to make a play by roping on every play and spamming every emote in the arsenal. You will not out petty me, shitheads.

    I send them a single heart hedron emote and then mute them, roping just wastes more of my time
