  2. "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.
  3. The reaction (backlash) among the Gaming community has been interesting to watch. I think people see "addiction" and attribute it to drugs, but anything that gives any kind of pleasure can be addictive, such as food or sex. It doesn't mean there is anything wrong with indulging in such things, as most people do, but some people let it rule their lives. Gaming certainly qualifies as that. The gaming community seems to think it's being attacked, or that their hobby is being attacked. That's not the case, the vast majority of gamers are NOT addicts, just like the vast majority of people you see in bars/clubs are not alcoholics. That doesn't mean that it's not impossible for some people to become addicted to it. You aren't an addict if you consume alcohol, have sex, or play a video game. But it doesn't hurt to acknowledge that people do indeed become addicted to those things sometimes.

  5. Phew! I dodged a bullet there, just sold Scapeshift that was sitting at $50 a couple months ago.
  6. Oh, it definitely has legs in modern. Heck, it's a million times better in modern than in standard because you can trigger revolt by cracking fetch lands. It's also played heavily in Legacy/Vintage, just check out the MTGgoldfish page for it, under the "recent decks using Fatal Push" section. It's played all over the place, so it drop in price around rotation time because Standard players will be selling, but it'll surely go back up after it's out of print long enough.
  7. Hey guys, if you haven't been following along on Twitter, Wedge (from The Mana Source) had some pretty serious medical issues at GP Vegas. It started out as back pain but over the course of a day or two he actually became paralyzed from the waist down, and is currently in emergency spinal surgery. His sister set up a Go Fund Me page for anyone interested in chipping in a few bucks. You can also follow along on his Twitter page, his lady friend was posting from the account when he wasn't able to.
  8. Oh wait, I think the answer is NO. I found this in the rule book: "108.2. When a rule or text on a card refers to a “card,” it means only a Magic card. Most Magic games use only traditional Magic cards, which measure approximately 2.5 inches (6.3 cm) by 3.5 inches (8.8 cm). Certain formats also use nontraditional Magic cards, oversized cards that may have different backs. Tokens aren’t considered cards—even a card that represents a token isn’t considered a card for rules purposes." Makes sense, they count as "a creature entering the battlefield/graveyard" but they don't count as a "creature CARD." If they wanted tokens to work, Desecrated Tomb would say "whenever a creature leaves the graveyard," however they specified "card" in the rules text so it looks like that would rule out tokens.
  9. That's a great question! Technically they do disappear, but I don't know if it counts as "leaving." I don't think there has ever been a card that triggered on cards LEAVING the graveyard so that might need to be clarified in the rule book after the set is released.
  10. Man, Colossal Majesty seems pretty nuts with things like Llanowar Elves/Steel-Leaf Champion/Rhonas.

  13. It's conflicting, because 8-Whack doesn't want to be clogging up it's hand with 3-drops, but at the same time, it really, REALLY likes to attack aggressively and wiping out a blocker or 2 could win the game. The other issue is that 1 damage probably isn't going to be as impactful against beefier modern creatures. It kills things like Snapcaster and Dark Confidant, and it annihilates Affinity if they haven't hit Steel Overseer, but a lot of times it might not be as effective as it is in Standard. Hmm. Personally, I'd throw a couple copies in the sideboard and see if there are any matches where I desperately need them. See how it feels!
