Nights and weekends (central time zone) mostly Want to be on a team with (list any DGZ users that apply): Can't be picky when you're late. (Optional) Credentials/why you would be a good team member: I'll be playing whatever list Zapp tells me is good. Sidenote: I haven't played yugioh online in quite some time. I saw the post for approved dueling simulators and I understand why we're pushing Lackey but is that what people actually war on or no?
  2. New Mafia Rules and Punishments

    Came here specifically to see if this was in here: Was not disappointed.
  3. Upcoming gigs you are going to see?

    Show sounds amazing. I'd pay full price just to see Tool, ATDI, and Pup alone.
  4. Top 10 Tv shows.. again

    Twilight Zone Simpsons Doctor Who X-Files Mr Show Curb Seinfeld Jessica Jones GoT Always Sunny
  5. Iron Fist

    Anyone else watching this despite the negative reviews? I'm a bit of a Marvel fanboy so take my analysis with a grain of salt. I'm only halfway through it at this point but I'm generally enjoying it. It's certainly Netflix's least strong Marvel title so far but its certainly enjoyable. The acting is fine even if the writing could use improvement. The action scenes are also decent, and I feel like Danny is actually portrayed pretty damn close to how he is in the comics. The main ailment the show seems to suffer from is it's villain does not get built up well or quickly enough to be engaging. All heroes need a good villain and without proper conflict it's hard to get attached. That being said I feel like Danny was already going to be a hard sell since his general laid back light hearted manner doesn't fit well into the gritty world Luke Cage and Daredevil have set up for the Netflix marvel scene. They could have easily went a different direction with him but since they're mostly introducing him to work towards defenders they're trying so hard to make him converge. There's a reason we usually see Luke and Danny paired. They play well off of each other and provide balance, forcing one into the others role was just never going to be great. Then there's the fact that he is very Batman-esc in his origin which doesn't help him feel like anything new or exciting. Can anyone who has finished it weigh in?
  6. tell me about something that you like

    @Tygo I have (probably) shit taste, give me some recs? Really dig stuff I grew up on like Demetri Martin, Bill Burr, Patton Oswalt, etc. Also obvious the classics that everyone likes (Pryor, Hicks, Carlin). Lately enjoying John Mulaney, Lewis Black, Brian Regan. Back on topic I enjoy the hell out of trail riding (mountain bikes). It's unfortunate because I live in Iowa and have to drive several hours to get to anywhere worthwhile to ride but I'll often go out and ride nearby trails I've ridden a hundred times over. It just makes me feel so free and keeps me in shape without feeling like a chore. That being said my bike just got stolen last summer and I haven't fully replaced it yet. It was locked up outside on the complex bike rack (with a thicker lock than anything else there by a mile) but it was literally in our lease that we could not store them inside our apartment. Normally I'd say fuck it and do it anyway but they paid us to keep our place clean and use it as a model apartment for visitors meaning they could drop in pretty much whenever during business hours and see it. I bought a piece of junk at a garage sale but I've been so busy with school I don't have time to travel and bike atm so I haven't bothered properly replacing it. Hopefully looking to move to Minnesota when I graduate though and the riding up there is so much better it's insane.
  7. Amonkhet Previews

    I'll try to find it later but I saw a version of the counterspell invocation where the bottom half of the card was the same but above the textbox with the exception of the cardname it was all just card art. That actually looked pretty dope and tells me they weren't as far off the mark as people think they were. That being said the black ones look the best and the only ones I'm interested in (barring they decide to print all the pacts in this block) are entomb/dark rit so I'm quite okay with this. The real loser here is the rules change on split cards. As someone who just received everything for the grixis goryos expertise deck I'm pretty pissed. It was a cool interaction that rewarded proper rules knowledge and was ultimately providing a t2 at best deck that didn't seem to be too bad. If they want people to not be putting in emrakuls so early just ban emrakul, it by itself is a design restriction on all reanimation spells anyway.
  8. You SUCK at Mafia

    It's wholesome threads like this that almost make me want to play mafia again.
  9. RIP Nafe

    So for those of you that don't have him on facebook...     Apparently Nathan OD'd, was hospitalized, and apparently just passed in the hospital.   I don't even know how to take this.  I thought he was doing better.    I just.   Fuck.     If you'd like to donate to Nate's family, send to Jesse/itswhatever's paypal and he will forward it on to them:   https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=Z36S58FQ25AS2   There is also a funeral home page which in addition to containing info on his memorial services, also contains a condolence book/flower service/donation destination: http://www.gumpholtfuneralhome.com/obits/obituary.php?id=567764   As per his request:
  10. Justice League

    Make it stop.
  11. SCG Louisville: May 20-21

    If you've been paying attention at all to the SCG circuit it should come as no surprise they switched the format of this to team constructed (1 player each on legacy, modern, and standard) as it seems universally beloved by players and twitch watchers alike. I'm currently down a player for my team, and would really like to try to salvage the trip still. We would prefer a standard or legacy player but we'll take anyone in any format at this point. Obviously doing well is always the goal but at this point it's more important to me that I go than that I do well so if you're from the area and haven't played in a while you should go, I'll even supply you a deck/teach you the basics of the format if needed. Also worth noting that this will be the weekend after the pro tour for amonkhet so Standard should (barring saheeli/mardu being left fully in tact) still be fairly open. As far as other people I know Lux is planning on going up to this, anyone else I'm not aware of going?
  12. DGZ SHIRTS ARE BACK!

    Mine came in, wore it to a PPTQ the next day, top 8'd. Can't say it's the reason I topped but I also can't confirm it's not. 10/10 would buy again.
  13. Constructed Standard Discussion

    You're not wrong. The pro players stance is usually slightly far removed from even just the slight grinder, and modern has steadily been getting better. The main grievance pros had with it is that there's too much to prepare for and too much variance in matchups. Anything can and will show up and it makes picking a deck harder than it should be. That being said the general allure is it's a "You can play what you want, just know it really well" format which most people find attractive. Either way it's no longer a PT format and the PPTQ's for it are relatively few and far between so it's a format I'd only pick up if you plan on grinding SCG/GP's or if your local scene is thriving.
  14. Constructed Standard Discussion

    Standard has the most tournaments that matter, people seem to enjoy modern the most but the barrier to entry is high, and limited is a good way to slowly amass a collection and not have to buy in to compete. Legacy is the format you play when you want to burn through your tax refund.
  15. DGZ SHIRTS ARE BACK!

    I've found high variance amongst most brands. Assuming these are 100% cotton though because they should be fine either way then.
  16. DGZ SHIRTS ARE BACK!

    How's the fit and what are the chances of doing a swap if the fit is off?
  17. Important New Features Added

    10/10 best new update
  18. I don't know if the tournament announcement was the initial announcement of mm3 but it's been a known set for quite some time now. You can find many articles attempting to analyze the focused sets/predict what will make its way into the set.
  19. Battle of the Anime Characters 2016 - 2017

    You expect too much from me if you think I actually read through the nominations to see who nominated what.
  20. Battle of the Anime Characters 2016 - 2017

    Not a weeb so I couldn't make relevant nominations but why on Earth would you nominate Edward and Alphonse from fullmetal? In no particular order a list of better characters in that show: Barry the Chopper Either of the Armstrong Siblings Mustang Hawkeye Hughes Kimblee Izumi Scar Greed Ling Slave 23 Miles Being the main character doesn't make you the best.
  21. Don't think the starting roster was that great but fuck it. Kanye Kendrick (actually difficult) Earl WhyAreTheyHereButE&AREN'T Pusha T Cole Grips M.I.A.
  22. Killers Franz Fuck this contest. Most of the best bands got eliminated way too early and others made it way too far.
  23. In no way should Franz or Arcade Fire have made it to this round and I'm ashamed of you all. (1) the killers vs. (13) streetlight manifesto (11) mastodon (7) vampire weekend
  24. Constructed Standard Discussion

    ... which is already possible with a servant go the conduit on 2. Don't get me wrong I'm excited for this card, it'll sometimes do just that, it'll sometime's be a thalias lt that doesn't block. I think what's more important than the dream scenarios is you get the utility that it's decent early and late game. GW Humans is already playable at the moment and I'd be surprised if this didn't mean GW tokens was coming back especially since they have vehicles to benefit from now as well.
