  1. The price of Animate Artifact just went through the roof!
  2. That looks awesome. I wish I lived somewhere that could be be a full time hobby. I live in south FL, so not an option. There's trails around, but no elevation, and gravity is the fun part. I've been twice, once in north GA, once in West Virginia. Lots of fun.
  3. I like the idea that Zendikar won't be all about Eldrazi. Zendikar was one of my favorite blocks, Battle for Zendikar was a huge letdown, personally anyway. Maybe I'll enjoy this one more. Aren't 2 of those sets supposed to be related?
  4. Not really surprising, no. This is corporate murica, and Hasbro is a known evil. The goal is profit, above all else. Secondary is keeping people playing and logged in. It's like bragging rights. "We have XX number of players logged in for XX number of hours every day." Statistics. Those numbers are what the advertisers want to see. It supports goal #1. I hate it, but at the same time, I realize MTG would have died long ago without it. Same goes for Standard format. Despise the concept, love that it kept the game alive. I actually applaud them for coming down after the community blew up. You dont see that everyday. That is, IF I'm reading this right. I don't really do online MTG, paper only.
  5. And the pop culture thing goes both ways. I thought Kylie Jenner was Bruce's new name until I saw pics.
  6. I know, you outta see the blank stares I get from some of these crazy kids when I drop a Dark Ritual.

    Hey, I have a question. Maybe I should have just started a thread, but this landfall thing is essentially the reason I'm asking. Involving Panharmonican... Lands hitting the battlefield aren't going to double landfall triggers, as Panharmonican specifies "when a creature or artifact enters the battlefield". But what about the Mirrodin artifact lands, such as Tree of Tales, etc.? I'm assuming they would trigger any landfall you have going? (Also assuming you can even play the Mirrodin lands, since they are banned just about everywhere.)

    And I have completely missed this Spark Double card. It happens, not playing out much means it takes longer to get to know new sets. Well... You're telling me I can have TWO Jaces on the board? PLEASE be telling me I can haz two Jaces. Or Teferis. Or... (Hmm, on my wantlist. Apparently I did see it.)

    Yeah, now let's add Divine Visitation. Angels coming, Angels going!
  10. I've been doing that a lot lately too. It's hard to let some of that stuff go, even though a lot of it sits unplayed. Using MtG hobby to fund guitar hobby.
  11. Hmm, Dragon Eggs and Rukh Eggs would trigger this, wouldn't they? Now we just need a bacon card. Or ham for the green Eggs!

    I just posted this in the angel thread, but Purphoros is awesome with Assemble.

    Boros angels are fun. Kinda weenie-ish though. Firemane Avenger with Balefire Liege and battalion attacks is a good bit of fun. Gisela to put it over the top. Purphoros and Assemble the Legion is cool. Hard to protect all that though. And after a bit, you realize the angels take a backseat to the burn. I imagine the internet scene would call it Angelburn. Or did?
  14. Cool. I guess I should also mention I'm old. 49 and still tappin'.
  15. Hiya folks, new around here, although been lurking a bit before I signed up. Great site. Been playing since just before 4th Ed. came out, although very little competitively. I'd get into it for a few weeks every couple years, but mostly I'm just not a huge fan of Magic the Sport, I just wanna play Magic the Game. It's becoming harder to find people who even know what that means. Seems like there might be a few around here though.
