  1. It was pretty good. With the exception of card quality, it seems like a step in the right direction in a lot of ways. The set was a lot more fun and flavorful than usual (YARGLE) and thematically it felt like a breath of fresh air...which is ironic considering Dominaria is the plane we've spent the most time on. Since they work so far ahead, I figure it'll have little impact on Ravnica, but I hope it proves that Magic players like fantasy themes, which the game has strayed incredibly far away from over the past few years. The mechanics weren't particularly great though, in my opinion. Sagas were interesting but nothing too crazy, Historic feels like a bit of a flop, and I've never really liked kicker in constructed format. Nevertheless, I feel fairly positive about Dominaria as a whole and, though I'm not particularly stoked for Ravnica at the moment, I hope it means good stuff AFTER the Ravnica trilogy is done with.
  2. Here is another video for the series! Machine Head from 2001, check it out!
  3. In 2001, Tom van de Logt won the Magic: the Gathering World Championship with this deck, Machine Head! A red/black midrange/control deck that looked to blow stuff up and beat down with big creatures.

  5. Let's play a bonus with UW Blades! We'll hopefully suit up a "blade" with Steel of the Godhead and send our opponent to Pound Town...maybe. -------------------------------------------- UW Blades playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLZX5Ly_QRoO3Hzft-GNWXzD5jDR-Gu51h Subscribe: https://www.youtube.com/c/AffinityforMTG?sub_confirmation=1 Twitter: https://twitter.com/AffinityForMTG Outro: Jahoda by Djjaner -------------------------------------------- This video is unofficial Fan Content permitted under the Fan Content Policy.

  6. Actually, some people use bots to auto-block anyone who follows Unsleeved Media or The Mana Source, so that could be it. *shrug* =/ Anyway, I agree, @Lasraik. It's a fucking cesspit, and both sides are wallowing of it. Fortunately most people in the REAL world are relatively mellow and cool. It's ironic, I saw a meme not long ago that when the internet first started taking off you met people online to get away from the shitheads you know in person. Now it seems to be the opposite.
  7. Indeed, I'm usually not that into Standard but I've been playing it at my LGS lately and it's pretty fun right now. Even with so many blue control variants floating around.
  8. Yeah, I also feel like WOTC does hybrid mana wrong. Multi-color cards are more powerful than mono-colored ones because the multiple colors means they can be played in less decks. They seem to treat hybrid cards the same way, but that's wrong, they can be played MORE OFTEN than mono-colored cards because they can be played in both their respective colors. The Shaman is a perfect example than that. It's already ahead of the curve being a 1-mana 1/2 and then the abilities are just absurd. It's like the developed it thinking that it had to be played in Golgari, like a multi-color card, but it's the opposite. It can be played in more decks than a mono-colored 1-drop but it has the power level of something that forces you to play 2 colors.
  9. Let's open a whole month's-worth of FNM loot! And it looks like we hit a big one with this episode!

  10. After my Dominaria cards sat in a box for awhile, I must say they definitely feel worse out of any standard-legal set at the moment. I don't know why I thought they felt glossier when I first opened them, because now it feels like I'm shuffling through sandpaper as I sort through my bulk. Really, REALLY bad.
  11. It's one of those things that I can tolerate, but I would prefer a nice shuffle feel. Since I just started playing in paper again, I only have 2 decks sleeved, but the sleeves are total opposites when it comes to shuffle feel. I have a modern deck in old KMC Hyper Mattes, and a standard deck in Ultra Pro Eclipses. I absolutely hated the Eclipses at first because of how sticky they were compared to the slick and smooth Hyper Mattes, but I got used to them over time. It started to feel normal and I wasn't really thinking about it...and then I played modern for the first time in weeks and the Hyper Mattes felt like a dream. I forgot how amazing they were! Anyway, obviously the first priority is good, durable sleeves. Not only do I want them to protect my cards but I also don't want to have to constantly replace them. With that said, once you rule out all the low-quality sleeves, then I would definitely favor shuffle feel over all else. I would never buy low-quality sleeves for the shuffle feel, so durability is my top concern, but after that I want sleeves that are slick like KMC Hyper Mattes.

  15. "Fast food" does indeed imply fast food chain, typically the type that has a drive-through for instant gratification. Taco stands and the like are "street food." There is a lot of terrible fast food, but the best places are the ones that acknowledge the limitations of needing to prepare food quickly and build their business with that in mind. Places like McDonald's/Burger King/White Castle are pretty bad because you can't cook a burger that quickly, and you can't offer such a wide of a variety of meats without pre-cooking them, so quality is sacrificed and the food is usually pretty crap. So my favorites are places like Raising Canes and Arbys. If you aren't familiar with Raising Canes, their a fast food restaurant that does 1 thing and 1 thing only: Chicken strips. Since they know that every single person in the drive-through line is ordering chicken strips because it's the only thing possible to order, they can just cook a steady stream of them, and the end result is fresh, delicious chicken every single time. It's great! Also, their sauce is amazing! Arby's on the other hand is a deli-meat restaurant, so it doesn't need to be cooked on-site.
