  1. 1. Yes they have to search. No, they don't have to actually find the basic land. Failing to find is legal in Magic. Apparently in YuGiOh!, if you fail to find, you automatically lose which is funny. 2. Yes, it does count as searching their library for the purpose of effects like Archive Trap.
  2. Neat. My brother's left handed.
  3. Happy birthday! If you could collect one complete set of magic, what would it be?
  4. Very relevant:
  5. I had this philosophical struggle myself a few years back. For me, I broke it simply down into "what can I do that can help me improve while also attempting to maximize fun?" That way, I keep things fun and educational - or at the minimum not stressful, while putting in the least amount of required monetary resources (standard constructed is expensive, etc). And I realized that for myself, I kept to the limited events - draft especially, but sealed when prerelease time comes around. This allowed me to practice card quality, finding synergies, and doing so in a semi-not-really competitive environment that rewards hard work and good gameplay decisions while keeping things pretty chill. I've written off standard as a format due to its costs, and that way if I want to do constructed I can do so either by playing Legacy/Vintage and Commander, or by building silly modern and pauper decks. Nowadays, I don't mind losing a well involved and good match where I did all I could, but I get internally salty as all hell when my own deck decides to not perform via mana issues (flooding or screw). I'm also especially considerate when it happens on the other side -- it wasn't a real game of Magic, if you're sitting there drawing land after land and you're dying to that bear from turn 2.
  6. Oooh, that is spicy. I like.
  7. Slideshow with dictation is better, to be honest. It takes a very short amount of time to record in Audacity, and then put the mp3 into your video editing program.
  8. Who saw the choke of the century during the Top 4? Man, you can literally see the moment PV's opponent's mind melts in the video.
  9. This + Kytheon as well.
  10. Finding myself awake at roughly 1 in the morning, I find myself transferring a deck into TappedOut, and doing a deck tech here. Welcome to All-In Discard. It goes "all-in", because you have until your opponent realizes you don't have creatures to pull off your shotgun to the face. Here's the list: This deck is very simple. Your mission, should you choose to accept, is to successfully play multiple Liliana's Caress/Megrims, and then kill your opponent with Blightnings and Burning Inquiries. Early Game: For those people out there who hate Core Sets, consider that some of the biggest meme cards have come exclusively from Core Sets. Liliana's Caress is one such card. Your ideal early game will always be turn 1 Bloodchief Ascension into a turn 2 Lili's Caress. No control player worth their salt would even bother countering either of these cards, so you should basically have zero resistance getting them on the field. Use Sign in Blood to find your pieces if you got unlucky and started out with a hand full of removal or something. Bloodchief Ascension is an investment into the later game, in case you aren't able to kill your opponent quickly. At 3 quest counters, cards that hit your opponents graveyard from anywhere (yes, even the stack after resolving instants and sorceries) will cause them to drain life. Mid Game - Turns 3+ Now, you have a choice, either continue building up that beautiful board with Megrims, more Liliana's Caresses and other cool things or start chipping away at their life total with Blightning. With only 1 Lilana's Caress and a Blightning, you start hitting for 7 and ripping two cards on turn 3, which is huge. Inquisition of Kozileks are great to scout out the opponent's hand prior to making a decision, while also acting as a free shock to the face. It's always prudent to check for counterspells before using your heavy hitters. Late Game - Turns 5+ You should be well off now to start really dealing some damage. Any one of these should do a stupid amount of damage while also giving you more than enough gas to continue your onslaught. Assuming 1 Liliana's Caress, Burning Inquiry will be hitting for a cool 6, 12 damage with 2 and so on. Reforge the Soul is pretty sweet at any point in the game after turn 2. You can potentially smack a guy for 14 on turn 3 (assuming you miracle with a Caress on the board) Memory Jar* is just a mean-spirited card (it's banned in Commander, and restricted to 1 in Vintage because of decks like this one), and can literally ruin friendships, or at the very least the average person's day. It's these cards that usually get countered by a competent control player, so use those Inquisitions of Kozilek to clear the way for them! Or, use some Burning Inquiries to bait out a counterspell before smacking down that Memory Jar. *The inclusion of Memory Jar makes this deck only legal in Vintage. Swap it out and it becomes a normal, old Modern deck. Removal Suite It's understandable to feel worried about not having creatures. Thankfully, everything just sort of dies when faced up against all this removal. Smallpox is great against hexproof dudes, just kill everything around them prior to smallpoxing, or just ignore the hexproof dude and win the game by casting Burning Inquiry. Terminate is the reason why I can't stand most removal spells in the current Standard, as none of them are really good enough when cards like this exist. That's all for this time, may your draws be decent, and your card choices be prudent.
  11. You need foil Russian ones for maximum memes. Also, I wonder how fast OP's deck is compared to the traditional modern mill deck. (Glimpse the Unthinkable, Archive Trap + Ghost Quarter, etc.)
  12. What I'm currently fooling around in: Total War: Attilla (Sclavenian Total Domination campaign) Total War: Shogun 2 (Otomo campaign) Warframe Vermintide
  13. Who watched last night's votes in the Senate? That was some prime-time television -- great drama, good plotline, and a wild conclusion at the end. Man, I love watching C-SPAN.
  14. Nice. I basically do my videos even lazier (I don't do face camming, even though I own a webcam). Makes it easier when I do my powerpoint (lol) videos.
  15. Gonna bookmark that one. Wow, that's useful.
