  1. That is a good one.. I had not considered them. I basically looked at all creatures and if it was Merfolk then it was considered. But since the changelings are all.. they would count.
  2. Yes and no... Yes because they realize the Pro Tour matters, but No because change plz
  3. Here is the decklist: https://www.mtggoldfish.com/deck/909258#paper I dont own many of the new rare merfolk yet so this is more a budget version shell for now.
  4. I did a twitter deck tech on my deck. The thread can be found here:
  5. I'm only posting it here because I am active on twitter and it just dropped. I only skimmed the article because honestly it is TL;DR level epic. http://www.breitbart.com/tech/2017/12/20/delingpole-magicgate-the-ugly-story-of-how-social-justice-warriors-ruined-an-innocent-collectible-card-game/ Edit: That is the first time I had to spell out breitbart in my life. I had to triple check my spelling.
  6. Alien shooter. Action RPG
  7. Updated deck list https://www.mtggoldfish.com/deck/858754#paper
  8. I think its cool and all.. but honestly if given the choice between Pauper and Modern.. I choose Modern.
  9. I have updated my list. After watching modern streams I realized I had no answer to Ad Nauseam I have added 2x Nevermore to the sideboard. https://www.mtggoldfish.com/deck/767716#paper
  10. If used correctly this could be a powerful tool (i.e. the fight against ISIS and other terrorist groups). However it will likely be abused for lesser violent related groups and pushed by social outrage to shut the accounts down.
  11. From the perspective of a person who didn't know who he was until this all went down, his videos are very condescending toward several different groups of people who play MTG. My question is why are those videos needed? What did this cosplayer do to you? What did WOTC do to you prior to this situation which caused you to comment on the different groups of people playing or supporting the game? It all seems like he made these videos to make himself and others feel better by belittling others. If I'm missing something there please correct me. EDIT: Some of his videos (when he sticks to actual content about the game) are good such as the card quality.
  12. I saw this article and responded to Saffron on twitter with my thoughts as well. In terms of cost, I have no problem that the T1 modern decks are ~$800. My T2/3 deck is $500 so I think that's about the right price jump to make it T1/2. Modern is not a changing format, it includes many cards over many years and many sets. If a unique good card from a set long long ago is one of the top cards in modern its price should reflect that. I am against reprinting it for reprinting sake. Since Modern does not change often, once can make the investment into a modern deck and only have it change slightly over the years due to Bans, New Unique cards, New Brews. Modern is a wonderful collection of decks across all aspects of the game. By reprinting cards in a modern only reprint, they are just limiting the creativity of modern in general. Here are your goyfs and Deaths Shadows.. now go play those decks. However they miss on the other parts of the deck making those parts more expensive. And since the people now have their goyfs they are compelled to buy the remaining pieces otherwise they are wasting their pretty new goyf they got. Don't take that I'm totally against reprints, I would just like them to come in the normal sets or bring back a CORE set rather then a "Masters" set. The "Masters" set usually comes down to the 10-15 best reprints then a bunch of junk cards which are never played.
  13. Comments on the video 6: 1. Agreed.. Dont damage cards 2. Agreed.. Dont break sleeves 3. I have no problem with assassin decks. People should have answers to other peoples answers. Thats how they learn. It is a teaching moment. 4. Agreed.. Dont be a jerk. 5. Agreed.. Dont needlessly touch things. 6. See #3. As for my 5: 1. Dont Damage anything (cards, sleeves, tables, chairs,..) 2. Dont eat at the card table. Pizza/Fast Food and cardboard are not friends even though it arrives in it. Drinks with Lids are OK but not Fast Food with straws (it can still spill) 3. Be mindful of your space. You should be able fit all of your stuff in a playmat or within 3" of a edge (size of a deckbox) of a playmat. Dont take up half the table with your seven boxes and two bags of dice or your backpack. 4. Listen to the organizers. When they call table locations or that pairings are up, go and check them out. Not doing so is a huge waste of time. 5. Be ready to play. Once you have your deck/playmat/dice/life sheet/etc.. out and ready, then start the conversation about "Roll to see who goes first?".. dont just sit and shuffle waiting for someone to make a move. You are there for a social game, be social (this coming from a wicked shy nerdy guy who talks to noone)
  14. Even though I'm new to EDH.. I think this is terrible. Un cards will make EDH even more crazy then it is and much less fun imho.
  15. Hmm reminds me of a concept from a popular movie franchise.
