  1. if you click on this topic you must post

    I'm not giant. Can anyone help me out with a very particular password? Also, is there a Magic forum anymore? Is Turkey still around?
  2. Legacy Format Discussion

    Why is there no Legacy format discussion thread?
  3. Satellarknight - Discussion

    Unalaq seems bad to me. What's his purpose?
  4. Shaddoll - Discussion

    Will 'Sinister Shadow Games' cause the effect of the Shaddoll monster sent to the graveyard to miss timing?
  5. gale dogra

    You can either go the three Dogra route or     He's a turn slower, but he virtually finds the entire combo by himself and he's not food on his own. Plus he has two relevant attributes: WARRIOR (to make Blade Armor Ninja) and DARK (to make Black Luster Soldier).
  6. ugh. DN.

    Are there any other online dueling platforms besides DN?
  7. Star Seraph Scepter

    If you normal summon [url=http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Star_Seraph_Scepter]Star Seraph Scepter[/url] and add [url=http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Star_Seraph_Sovereign]Star Seraph Soverign[/url] to your hand, can you special summon Soverign through it's effect?
  8. No Soup for You!

      Ah.   Well, Breakthrough Skill can only be used from the graveyard during the turn of the owner of the card, so you can't 'get trolled basically', though that would still be annoying.  herpderp I'm dumb   In both of these situations, if LaDD ends up dying, would its effect in the graveyard activate?
  9. No Soup for You!

      Been out of the game for a while; how do Fiendish Chain and Breakthrough Skill beat LaDD? You just lose 500 P/T and go on your merry way.   Additionally, can Nimble Angler be triggered by discarding it or entombing it with Swap Frog?
  10. If a Dragon Ruler monster is banished by its own effect (to summon another Dragon Ruler), or the effect of a similar card (Desert Twister, REDMD) would you be able to activate the effect of the banished Dragon Ruler if had a different name than the Dragon Ruler that was Special Summoned?   If a Dragon Ruler monster is banished by a different effect, like Sacred Sword of Seven Stars, would you be able to activate the effect of that Dragon Ruler monster?
  11. Theros information spoiled by MaRo

    That sounds really cute and non-functional.
  12. KKK & NAACP Meeting

    There was a Klan rally in Augusta two years ago where the Klan was protesting for civil rights (gay marriage, maybe?), and I've heard and read about the Klan protesting against hate groups such as the Westboro Baptist Church, so there may be some merit to Abarr's claims. On the whole, however, I'm unsure of what to make of this; it seems like no one really told anyone anything. Certainly, I was more confused after I read this than I was before.   Still...very exciting, in a dark sort of way.
  13. Looking for an article

    Can someone post Drew Levin's SCG Premium article from today?
  14. SCG Invitational Somerset, NJ

    Yeah, that was definitely a punt. I don't know why he did that...was he really afraid of Izzet Charm being exiled? I can't imagine Spell Pierce or Shock being good later in the game against Jund.   Why did Andrew keep the Burning Earths in?   EDIT: MULL TO 5. I'm done.   Nevermind, he got this. That rib.
  15. SCG Invitational Somerset, NJ

    LF > Turkey token
  16. SCG Invitational Somerset, NJ

    Turkey is in 10th as of round 15.   EDIT: and he's in the top 8.
  17. For instance, Harpie Channeler   If you return a card worded in this way to your hand (or flip it face down or play another copy) can you use the effect of the 'new' copy, or does the 'You can only use the effect of ~ once per turn' clause apply globally to all copies?   Hope I was clear.
  18. Is this you, Allen?

    http://www.wizards.com/Magic/Digital/MagicOnlineTourn.aspx?x=mtg/digital/magiconline/tourn/5399745   Second down looks a little familiar...
  19. Is this you, Allen?

      Never seen him play before. I didn't even know Legacy dailies on MTGO fired more than once a week.
  20. Kreayshawn Is Pregnant

    Who the hell is Kreayshawn?
  21. So I have to have 300 posts...

    to get the password for Tits or GTFO?   Probably gonna get horribly negged like last time, but I won't be in a position to download Brazzers entire server for a while and I figured, 'hey, it's just reputation.'   jw.
  22. Constructed Standard Discussion

    [quote name='Azn_Boy' timestamp='1354225139' post='3335814'] [quote name='~Seal~' timestamp='1354223534' post='3335797'] Right now I would probably change up the deck a lot. I'd play Tragic Slips and Pillars in the main and probably put something harder hitting against control in the board. I like the idea of Desecration Demon against Bant since it's hard to kill Sigarda but I think that Demonic Rising would be the nuts against any kind of control/jundish deck. The deck plays few creatures and, if needed, you could activate Keyrune to get a 5/5 at the EoT. [/quote] I brewed a janky monoblack trading post deck and played against UW Flash yesterday. I resolved Trading Post and Demonic Rising and he couldn't win lol. If I had Blood Crypts and Dreadbores I would play BR Post. 3 Volatile Rig 2 Veilborn Ghoul 2 Liliana of the Veil 1 Liliana of the Dark Realms 3 Trading Post 2 Scroll of Griselbrand 2 Staff of Nin 2 Demonic Rising 2 Underworld Connections 1 Homicidal Seclusion 4 Mutilate 4 Sign in Blood 1 Sever the Bloodline 2 Victim of Night 2 Tragic Slip 1 Ultimate Price 26 Swamp SB: 4 Duress SB: 1 Sever the Bloodline SB: 3 Cremate SB: 3 Vampire Nighthawk SB: 2 Ghost Quarter SB: 2 Tragic Slip How I beat Thragtusk: Trading Post + Homicidal Seclusion lol. I can also pseudo soft lock them with Scroll of Griselbrand. [/quote] You actually won with Demonpost? I saw the deck a few weeks ago and while Demonic Rising/Post or a Keyrune is very powerful, I couldn't sell myself on playing Volatile Rig. Might give it a try, now. [quote name='Geralf' timestamp='1354225405' post='3335818'] Wow, so if you control something and rig and rig dies, you just get a token in end phase. more liliana of the veil imo, dark realms isn't worth it when you're already playing 26 swamps. [/quote] Also, if you trigger the explosion of Rig, you gain 8 life + 4 life for everything on the field under Seclusion. I'm actually liking Dark Realms better than Veil right now, because everyone thinks she sucks and ignores her. You don't have a real way to abuse her ultimate, though, and you do have ways to Hellbent yourself/you can discard the game card over and over again, so maybe this is correct.
  23. Constructed Standard Discussion

    Woot, the Forbidden Alchemy Frites deck topped in Charleston. Is Quirion Dryad bad in U/W Flash? I'm on the fence about it. On one hand, you are casting a large amount of U and W spells, but on the other it gets chumped all day and doesn't do much late game.

  25. Archwing Dragon

    [img]http://static.starcitygames.com/sales/cardscans/MAG_AVR/ArchwingDragon.jpg[/img] Why hasn't this guy seen his day in Standard yet? Sure, Thundermaw Hellkite one more power and a better 187, but this guy doesn't die easily to removal and wins a punch-out with the format's premier fliers. Volt Charge (can't think of a 4 mana burn spell) with buyback 0 seems pretty good, especially since the name of the game is currently 'play all the mana in your deck, and then take some of your opponents and play it too.'
