  1. Contest is closed; lesson learned - gleam.io owns the space now lol. Anyhow, I had two comments, Tim Bister and a local from my LGS. Since they're both loyal followers, I've decided to give each of them a set of signed Modern Essentials tokens! Thanks for watching!
  2. Hey folks, You may have heard of CreaYTors, a YouTube channel run by a friend of mine from Australia. Well, I was asked to come back for the (sort of) aborted season 3, and as of tomorrow we'll have all uploaded our five videos. One of the challenge videos, number 3, was to conceive of a video with only a title: My Favorite Artist. Well, Johannes Voss is my favorite artist so it's no surprise that I had supported his modern essentials token kickstarter a couple years ago. Because of the stretch goals we reached, I received 3 full sets of tokens, including two autographed sets, and I'm raffling off one set of the tokens for CreaYTors series 3. All you need to do is check out the video, leave a comment (it can be as short as you want) and be subscribed to my channel. I'll draw a name from those who commented by mid-March. If you want a closer look at the tokens, stick around (or skip to the end, I guess) of the video as I open them up and leaf through them. As always, thanks for watching!
  3. Omniscience draft is a format where each player has an emblem that allows them to cast spells for zero cost! The emblem also provides the opportunity to generate WUBRG once per turn for activated costs, though players start with 3 cards in hand. So what's the format like? It's kind of crazy, so let's find out...
  4. As a filthy casual, I'm excited by just the possibility! And it's only one set plus one year of standard rotation before they're gone so if it was a mistake (I suspect r&d and play group worked out way to make this fun and not disruptive) it self-corrects.
  5. Shaun's actually running something a bit different tis time; basically a multi-creator MTG Arena tournament where we're broken down into teams to come up with deck ideas, then play a series of four games with other creators! Some of them stream their matches, some post them to YouTube afterwards, but the first 'season' was pretty fun!
  6. Seems interesting.
  7. Depends deal?
  8. Yep, tracking. Government work and I've been there before. I especially love navigating the beltway using a GPS that's a couple of years out of date; my wife and I must have exited into downtown DC three or four times before we gave up and headed 'east' for like an hour on some side road to re-orient.
  9. We're going on a Caribbean cruise in a couple weeks; 5 days out of Miami so just a quick jaunt around, but it's Marvel themed so that will be fun. Probably moving this summer, from Canada down to Washington, DC for work, so I count that as a trip; guessing sometime around July. Then not this year, per se, but right away in the new year 2020 we're doing a 12 day southern Caribbean cruise! (Wife loves cruising)
  10. Hey SoulRider, Forum isn't dead, it just ebbs and flows. Plenty of helpful people lurking around just waiting to respond.
  11. Hey folks, SInce this is something I've been doing regularly (although I admit, I will run out of packs to crack as I haven't duplicated any yet), I thought I'd post the newest ones into this thread. One of the key things I wanted to do with this series of videos was to simply provide a quick look at the cards in any given pack for a set without trying to do analysis or anything (although I do sometimes slip something in there), instead focusing on the cards themselves. I've thought about some ways I could improve the videos, particularly since we have a very slow internet connection (6mb down 800kbps up) where we live and I admit to converting the video to reduce the upload size. One idea I had was to do a graphic overlay with the card down in the corner. If you have any suggestions I'd be grateful to hear them. Thanks for watching!
  12. You can do it if it's really what you want. Since we started Keto, I've found myself eating better over the last 9 months than I did prior (still room for improvement) and I've found ways to enjoy things I love, too, like ice cream (occasional Halo Top) or chocolate (reese's no sugar added peanut butter cups), and I've still managed to drop about 75 lbs; about 10 to go.
  13. I think it's interesting there are 6 promos........ wastes anyone?
  14. A guy at the local game store told me he had a youtube channel so I checked it out and thought to myself, hey I can do that! So I did. I'll admit, my interest is waning in the creating content realm, but I do get excited about a new idea once in a while.
  15. I dropped 70 lbs in the early 2000's doing Atkins; took me about 6 months and kept the weight of for several years. Fast forward to March 2018; tipping the scales at 255 I decided it was time to drop. Since I was familiar with Atkins, I decided to try Keto. Been doing lazy Keto ever since and I've peeled about 70lbs again (around 185 right now). Honestly, I think calories in/diet is far more important than exercise for weight loss; exercise for health is fine. Jes makes a great #1 suggestion either way; totally empty calories. Whatever you do, find something you can stick with
  16. Meanwhile, I broke down. I found folks to draft my Guilds of Ravnica Mythic Edition with, and used the money to buy a box. Lol. I think drafting the set will be fun, and opening the box once will be fun. Probably going to play a round of box sealed with a friend of mine.
  17. I bought it, played about 2 hours so far since 2016. <--- this should be telling! Heck, I've even put 16 hours into Civilization: Beyond Earth. The game is fine... there are some new things in it, but honestly, it's not as good as Civ V and every time I start playing it, I lose interest very quickly. (According to Steam,I've put over 350 hours into Civ V at this point)
