  1. Well, usually it's somewhat easy to save some when we just have sammiches for breakfast. Believe it or not, you CAN have too much bacon on a sandwich. So there's always some left. HOWEVER... I like your idea much betterer. I'll just have two sandwiches.
  2. Oh no! You're letting me down. Do we HAVE to wait till the weekend??? I'm gonna fry some up in the morning and make breakfast sammiches, and save some for burgers tomorrow night. Weekend schmeekend. Seems like a good time for one of my favorite TV quotes. From Supernatural, Dean - "If bacon is what kills me, I Win."
  3. In a pan, on a burner, low and slow, like you said. All other methods should be illegal. #cancelovenbacon! Now I hungry too. Thanks buddy.
  4. Aye, it's a shame to see it go. I had high hopes too when I stumbled upon it last year or whenever. It sucks to see forums dying left and and right in general. Thank you folks for all the content videos and stuff. Still glad I found the place even if it was short lived. Personally, I could take this as an omen that MTG in general is dying out for old farts like me who want to just play for fun. It is so hard finding a decent game anymore. Or has it been dead, and I'm just in denial and/or oblivious?
  5. Grim Tutor was certainly a surprise. Most everything else I have if I've wanted it. The card I'm most interested in so far is Terror of the Peaks. Even better if it comes as a playmat. Good dragon playmats have been few and far between. Also happy to see Heroic Intervention get a reprint. Now, how about Assassin's Trophy and Arachnogenesis?
  6. Well, sign me up for that non-foil Atraxa. I wonder how hard the original will get hit, value wise? Shoulda, coulda, woulda sold off that and Kaalia while I had the chance. Here's hoping for a second go-around for Assassin's Trophy and Heroic Intervention.
  7. Not only that, but they're being destroyed because the hens are laying eggs faster than our crippled shipping infrastructure can move them. It's pretty sad. So, does the UK do dyed eggs on easter? How do you dye a brown egg?
  8. I tried playing over skype. More hassle than it's worth. My buddy kept walking away, helping wife and kids. Which is awesome and all good, just kind of a drag when I have nothing to do but wait. He'd be gone for 15-20 mins, we'd forget where we were, kind of a clusterf. You gotta set it up right. We've been talking about getting together for a real game soon. Just be smart and clean about it. I dunno.
  9. SyFy is streaming Battlestar Galactica for free. So after so many years, I finally get to watch it in it's entirety. Only a couple of episodes into it, but wow. I was a fan of Edward James Olmos before, but now he may be elevated into my top favs list. I had seen enough to get used to Starbuck being female, but wow, it's all done so well. I remember when I was a kid, the Vipers were my favorite of all the starfighters, and while I cringe at the "new new" ones, I Love what they did with the "Mk II" version, especially the flying dynamics, all the flipping around with thrusters and whatnot. I do have some nitpiks, a few "huh?" moments, but we'll see if any of them get explained away in time. Also, having just watched Lucifer (another REALLY good show), I'm kinda stuck on the "Trisha Helfer is a goddess" bandwagon.

    Well, you identified one card to trim on your own. Kothophed is dangerous. Downright unplayable in my groups. Too many crazy token decks.

    Mycoloth could go along with that strategy pretty well too.
  12. I'm confused. If there's 20 cards in a pack, how is it possible to come up with "121 20-card lists inside any given pack"? What did I miss?
  13. No one has anything? Not even a "it's gotta be 60 cards or ye shall hang"?

    Jarad likes to eat big creatures. Check out Herd Gnarr. There's lots of ways of making big numbers of saprolings. Verdeloth the Ancient is a favorite. Verdeloth with a big kicker can make Herd Gnarr fairly huge. Ashnod's Altar can make big mana for the kicker cost, plus bonus damage if you've got Slimefoot out. Not a huge pricetag for any of them. Well, I guess Ashnod's Altar's price has creeped up since I last checked. Primalcrux can also get huge pretty quick. Especially with it's best friend Khalni Hydra.
  15. Well, I can't find link/tag instructions,(nor do I see any), so... The deck, as of this moment: Creatures (19): 3 Dragon Hatchling 3 Dragon Egg 3 Scourge of Valkas 2 Nesting Dragon 2 Lathliss, Dragon Queen 2 Broodmate Dragon 1 Verix Bladewing 1 Dragon Broodmother 1 Bladewing the Risen 1 Utvara Hellkite Non-creatures (20): 1 Lord Windgrace 2 Dragon Tempest 1 Crucible of Fire 1 Demonic Tutor 1 Vampiric Tutor 2 Diabolic Intent 1 Worldly Tutor 1 Sarkhan's Triumph 1 Elemental Bond 1 Victimize 1 Recurring Nightmare 1 Journey to Eternity 1 Damnation 1 Crux of Fate 1 Casualties of War 1 Windgrace's Judgement 1 By Force 1 Kindred Charge Artifacts (11): 1 Panharmonican 1 Herald's Horn 1 Ruby Medallion 2 Dragon's Hoard 1 Mox Ruby 1 Mox Emerald 1 Mox Jet 1 Sol Ring 1 Chromatic Lantern 1 Thought Vessel Lands (27): 4 Tiaga 4 Badlands 1 Bayou 1 Rootbound Crag 1 Dragonskull Summit 1 Cavern of Souls 1 Reflecting Pool 1 Haven of the Spirit Dragon 1 Gaea's Cradle 1 Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx 1 Volrath's Stronghold 1 Karakas 1 Yavimaya Hollow 1 Strip Mine 1 Reliquary Tower 1 Wooded Foothills 2 Bloodstained Mire 1 Verdant Catacombs 1 Mountain 1 Forest 1 Swamp Currently 77 cards. The Crux of Fate, Kindred Charge, and Nykthos are new ideas thrown in, and it hasn't been played that way yet. It's actually been at 74. What would you trim out, or would you just let it fly like this? Keep in mind, this isn't a overly-crazy competitive scene. We value fun and flavor over outright wins, although this has won probably 2/3s of the games it's played. There isn't a whole lot of "pro-active destruction" going on. We old school. I only want to trim this down because mana-clump and opening hand mana curve can hurt. The other issue I'd like to address is non-creature recursion. Mostly getting artifacts back. What say you?
