  1. ...[sigh] Fallen Empires For my Birthday I re-acquired the two decks I used to have at high school, both are 3rd Edition/Fallen Empires decks. A mono-red burn deck (Goblin Grenades!) and a mono-blue Homarid tribal. Gah! The nostalgia!
  2. I think it's exceedingly strange to have two of the same Planeswalker out at once. They "walk" between Planes, not alternate realities! Anyway, there is no chance that I will ever have to face off against this rule. Everyone I play with started playing before Planeswalkers existed (apart from the actual player themselves), and they aren't about to start now. My wife and I are happy to just have a single Planeswalker in some of our decks for giggles.
  3. I'm glad it's not just me being old and grumpy Last game she asked if we could go through the basics of deck construction and swapped a bunch of cards out for simpler alternatives. The whole shifting of -1/-1 counters around whilst waiting to draw/cast Lilliana was the main annoyance. Then she beat me, after being down 26 to 3 at one stage. I have created a monster...
  4. I love the tribal potential (I am a sucker for minotaurs ). I have even managed to get my wife playing, after 17 years of waiting, thanks to the Egyptian flavour. Does anybody else find the card mechanics a bit... convoluted? I don't rate it very highly as a set for teaching new players.
  5. I'm getting better, I had a severe allergic reaction to some medication and the symptoms are lingering. Let's just say I have picked up a few -1/-1 counters
  6. I always gravitate towards tribal decks. I can't help myself
  7. I used to collect the LOTR TCG back in the day, it was incredibly good to play and very different from MtG. These days, I just can't spread myself that thin, I play too many games as it is!
  8. Staying out of hospital I have had the worst couple of months, it is beyond ridiculous.
  9. I am a casual player and this forum is 100% of my daily intake of media. I think a lot of casual MtG players also have another game/system as their main focus; MtG is what you do while you wait for everyone to turn up (or finish a game that you just got "one-shotted" out of!).
  10. Giant Spectacle for the LOLs
  11. That's fantastic! Thanks for sharing it with us.
  12. Who recycles MtG cards (out of the game)?
  13. Chandra. Always Chandra
  14. That would change the purpose of many cards and may affect how people compose their mana base. My gut feeling is that maximum hand size is a good thing for the game, but I would be interested to hear reasons to change it.
