I am one who had Dark Age of Camelot ruin every other mmorpg that came out. It had tons of shit, too long to list, that put it above every other one out there I tried. (And I lost a ton of money looking for a replacement, and WoW was one) I got one great real life friend out of DAOC and a ton of others who I really enjoyed being with in game. A great guild is huge. But also for myself, it was the ability to really mold "Avatar Me". I died alot playing my character out of norm for it's traits, but WE also won battles due to my setup that allowed me to play with a team who understood what I was doing, and allowed for them to support me in my weaknesses. A leather wearing hunter, high in toughness, pet, and strength and wielding a 2 handed sword, while low in "bow" and extremely low in stealth almost to a point I had none. Lol A bow wielding stealther toon with few points placed in either. What!
I loved it. Opponents - "Oh look, I popped a hunter, let's get his ass". I'd smile as I'd smack them for damage from a hunter, like they never experienced before, with my claymore, while confusing them with why they couldn't put this stealther down. (Too many HPs and points in toughness) I could hear them through the computer as their cries of "WTF", turned to "That Bastard!", as my stealther shadowblade friend(s), came out of what seemed like nowhere to slaughter them with backstabs and poison as their focus was on this hunter with the "upside down character creation". Props also to my pet and the ability to use him in ways other games don't allow.
Its 2019 and I'm playing NBA2K19, which still put limitations on individual character development. You would think by now developers would have come a lot farther. But no.
In summary, DAOC allowed me to create a toon more freely than any other, leaving behind the cookie cutter designs and allowing me to truly be the toon I wanted to be. (Hey Pasanda, let's go fuck some people up like the old days!)Elovia likes this
I don't know what my exact list, but I play Affinity in modern and several cards were made into Kaladesh masterpieces, so blinging out my deck with those would be cool!
Hey, we haven't had a Top 5 in awhile.
Today's topic? The top 5 cards you wished you owned. ***THAT DON'T INCLUDE THE POWER 9***
Yes, let's make it more interesting than just the powah.
- Karakas - Idiot Jes remembers seeing a Legends Karakas in a store glass display case at $15. I wanted the card, but thought "Why would I spend that $ on a casual card?". Of course, it became a Legacy powerhouse and I missed my window.
- Biogenic Ooze - Yes, from the newest set. I have always wanted an ooze lord, and never managed to crack one
- Illusionary Mask - One of the most complicated cards of all time, this would pair so well in my Phyrexian Dreadnought deck (one of the older wombo combos). A card on the reserved list and never made it to Revised. I also love the goofy art
- Nicol Bolas, the Ravager - I never did manage to get Daddy in his latest form. I have played against him, and he is rather mean in multiplayer, so I have to be careful what I wish for.
- Robot Chicken - Yes, this is a real card! Sorta... it was made for the creators of Robot Chicken, and only in an oversized version. My chicken deck (BAWK) would absolutely want 4 of these.
Legendary spells just require you to control a planeswalker or legendary creature at the time of casting, you can't bump them off the stack with the legend rule.
From Gatherer: Other than the casting restriction, the legendary supertype on a sorcery carries no additional rules. You may cast any number of legendary sorceries in a turn, and your deck may contain any number of legendary cards (but no more than four of any with the same name).

I always fill out these surveys when I see them, but I'm so sick of filling out that last section, which is the same on every single survey. The part where it asks the same questions over and over, but phrasing them in different ways, for 5+ pages. >_<
Well, it's a way to cross-check answers. If you answer inconsistently, the answers aren't as useful.
That said, who in the hell answers with "I WANT TO BE A WIZARD!!!"
The current legend rule reads as such:
704.5k. If a player controls two or more legendary permanents with the same name, that player chooses one of them, and the rest are put into their owners' graveyards. This is called the “legend rule.” Only one copy of a given legendary card may be in control by a same player at the same time.
So it only applies to permanents, which would include creatures, artifacts, enchantments, and lands. It doesn't seem to apply to the Legendary spells from Dominaria, since spells on the stack aren't permanents.
Does the new iteration of the legend rule, affect only instants and sorcerys or ever legendary card type ?
