You don’t already feel completely overloaded with new cards?! With War of the Spark, Modern Horizons, M2020, and C19 all coming out at basically the same time it feels like giving us a whole week is slow.Quote from cyberium_neo »Such a rapid preview, wouldn’t people get overloaded by cards? I personally prefer a slower preview so I could digest.

Jun 7, 2019If you thought deck building advice was bad here, you should join random Facebook MTG groups. I post an Ugin Oathbreaker deck and it takes minutes for “AdD tRoN lAnDs.” to flood in. Okay, what do I cut? The answer is always “lands that are really useful at most stages of the game.” That’s cool and all but....”Posted in: Commander (EDH)
May 31, 2019Galspanic posted a message on Mothership Spoiler 5/31 - Full Card Image Gallery!Posted in: The Rumor MillQuote from MysticLeviathan »Super disappointed in the showing of Slivers and Snow.
This set felt super safe, and not in a good way at all. I hope when we make it to Kaldheim, there will be some interesting snow cards. Maybe we can get Slivers again in a Core set a year or two from now, who knows. A lot of this set felt not efficient enough for Modern, despite the powerful cards, hence the Commander Masters moniker, and it definitely holds true. Will there be cards that see play in Modern? Absolutely, and quite a few at that. At the same time, a few knobs turned on a bunch of cards and they’d see play in Modern too.
I feel a bit let down. Maybe my hopes were unrealistic. I feel like if all the archetypes got the kind of love and playability the RG lands cards did, the set would be better. As it is, I consider this set to be a bit of a letdown.
The only way you could really be let down by this set is if your expectations were unrealistic. It will change every format it's legal in to some degree. There's solid cards at all rarities, creative and interesting cards to explore, and it brings back a ton of mechanics with new twists. It may not make every archetype in Modern better, but if it did we'd be back at where we started. Any set that doesn't immediately break a format will be seen as safe, right? This thing is fine.

Given that there is already a deck that runs Miscreant and Sprite that just got hit with bans pretty hard, I know I will try this thing out. In my Mono-U I have 5 open spots so this seems like an easy drop in to try out.
May 20, 2019Galspanic posted a message on Mothership Spoilers 5/20: Flusterstorm (BaB promo) and Morophon the BoundlessWhen talking about Morophon being a chase card in this set, are we ignoring that cards like this (high cmc creatures that rely heavily on the deck to be worth anything and compete with proven staples that aren't expensive) are never worth much or that there are tons of other cards that will see play in multiple formats in the set? This is a mildly popular Commander card for a little while and for that it's a $3.50-$5 card... hardly chase.Posted in: The Rumor Mill

Nov 3, 2017"Underrated" assumes people even know it exists. At this point I know very few people that don't have to read the card to know what the ability even does.Posted in: Paper Pauper and Peasant
I went with white since that's the norm, but giving your team haste is huge. In a format of 4/4s it's nice to have all your team hitting with first strike too.
Nov 2, 2017Posted in: Paper Pauper and PeasantQuote from Upkeep »What do you think of my Slivers list? It was originally modeled after yours, but I've made significant changes to it over time, with the help of a friend of mine.
Burn got a huge kick in the pants with Firebrand Archers and Thermo-Alchemist. Both give the deck even more inevitability and having bodies on the table is always nice.
The Slivers I have right now are Green/White since that seems to be the normal way to do it, but Red/Green was my favorite. I may have to pick up another set of Bolts and try it out again.
Nov 2, 2017Took out Jeskai Kuldotha since I hear that's too slow these days. Added Boros Kuldotha since that seems to be all the rage - and it's got some new cards in there since I last updated. I hate Teachings.1-game.time.dec so I changed that over to Dimrova Tron. We'll see how it goes, but it feels like a similar deck to the annoyingly slow Teachings, but it can actually get there.Posted in: Paper Pauper and Peasant
Burn added those 2 creatures that make it a lot better and for the most part all 22 of the decks are with 5 cards of the last time I played them.
Metagame moves slow.

Is it me or does that white card combo with Dark Depths?
Pretty sure Dark Depths enters with those counters and the counters are not put on it.
Cumulative Upkeep stuff looks good though.

Don't worry approximately next week it should get a price drop, just not to the 3.5 from before. Probably about to $13-$16ish
I thought the same thing once:
Apr 10, 2017I've done a few more MTG related tattoos since I posted that one.Posted in: Artwork
Here's a cover up that was about as close to impossible as I thought I'd run into but we found an image from Mirage that worked.
Another one that's mostly finished, but we're doing a bunch of stuff on the back to are hiding off until we get that figured out:
Nov 18, 2016Went to order all of the new commanders cash in hand. Did not see an option to buy them non-foil. Deleted cart.Posted in: New Card Discussion
I was planning on adding them all to my EDH Cube, but since readability is a huge priority (even huger than my hatred for foils) these things are worthless to me. Like literally, if you offered to give them to me for free I would decline because they take up space that readable cards could be taking.
The Partner cards were something I was really looking forward to too.

May 28, 2019About 4 years later than I thought it would sink (seeing the site bought by an Alabama based online gaming site? I mean....), but I'm still sad to see it die off.Posted in: Articles
As long as Reddit is unusable and Facebook is Facebook I'll probably hover around whatever is next.
Nov 16, 2007Honestly, you have given me fun projects to work on. That's worth a lot to me. When I look you up on Google I find all sorts of stories about the stuff you have dealt with and as many stories about how people in your neck of the woods (and elsewhere) think you are great. You look me up and you find nothing except fprmer students on myspace complaining about what an ahole I am.... So, enjoy it man.Posted in: PolarBearGod Blog
