  1. it honestly just feels like people trying to validate their own biases in this particular election it's probably not even an issue because for everything trump has said that has been misconstrued, he's probably said something equally as bad that's just been glossed over but in general, it makes for pretty shitty voting practice (i swear im not trying to be holier than thou here, even if it comes off that way) EDIT: whether or not he would have the power to actually put clinton in jail is obv irrelevant
  2. im not from america (and tbh am quite pleased about this right now) and want to take as objective a stance on this as possible did people really take trump's "you'd be in jail" quip as equivalent to "i'd throw any of my political opponents in jail" i'm aware he's expressed admiration for dictatorships in the past but in regards to that particular quote, all it came across as to me was an allusion to clinton being accused of having people killed etc., and that she in particular was corrupt (and thus should be in jail etc. etc.) this article in particular implies that he would have anybody running against him jailed, which, to me at least, was not evident in the quote at all http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/projects/cp/opinion/clinton-trump-second-debate-election-2016/because-youd-be-in-jail i don't want to be labelled as defending everything trump has said because he's certainly said some abhorrent things, but this in particular feels like the media (and some of you guys) twisting his words and intentions entirely to meet with a preconceived notion of what you expect at this point
  3. woah dude that's not weezer are you sure you copied the right link
  4. high in cholesterolllllll
  5. came third at an LLDS/regional thing with this: 3 eclipser 1 destroyer 3 landwalker 1 forerunner 1 sliprider 1 delta shuttle 1 dark lady 3 strawman 2 soartroopers 1 tincan 3 gofu 1 yaksha 1 garunix 2 maxx 24 3 kozmotown 3 fire king island 3 terraforming 3 allure 1 upstart 1 teleport 14 2 kozmojo 2 thanks to buckwheat for probably having the most influence on how i built the deck. it worked really well. might try to fit a second sliprider but i don't think it's necessary by any means.
  6. carly bae jepsen
  7. if you cut the gofu for speedroids you prob can't play allure which is kind of lame
  8. do you mind explaining gold sarc? is it part of a combo? just sarc + strawman by itself doesn't seem particularly strong
  9. reading these posts, the fact that you can edit wikipedia does seem like a problem
  10. when it becomes the norm on duelistgroundz to cite peer-reviewed academic journals ill do that instead
  11. please read the false equivalence link I'm done with this argument someone else can take over if they want
  12. they harm BA in very different ways, being able to withstand one (cherries) in no way translates to being able to withstand the other, and it especially doesn't translate to being able to withstand both at the same time https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/False_equivalence
  13. you said if BA can survive cherries it can survive this. that's just not even an argument, it's two unrelated things that you're stringing together the 'resiliency of BA' does not necessarily translate from a side deck card that may or may not even be good, to the limitation of two core engine cards EDIT: replace cir with allure and move on? replace one of your dark targets with another copy of a card that needs more dark targets to function? another ridiculous statement about two things that are not interchangeable in the slightest
  14. this isn't very good logic when you consider that these things don't operate in a vacuum, BA now has more problems lumped on to the already existing problem of cherries i still think BA is very playable under this list, but saying 'it survived cherries, it can survive two additional limits unrelated to cherries on top of cherries' doesn't make any sense
  15. Kozmo is still really good too. 1 Destroyer can be easily looped from rfg with town or strawman and grave with call/oasis. Just bump up the numbers to 3 forerunner 3 landwalker with 3 island and you have a very good deck. The teleport hit is almost irrelevant, that card was usually overkill when you had 6 teleports in the form of Fire King Island
