Quote from quixotegutI actually plaed it straight up one night and forgot about it, until I got one shotted by Rafiq... just to shuffle up and deal again. He was pissed.
Also... General's Regalia is my new love.
Quote from BurntgerbilCouldn't he just one-shot you with rafiq the next turn, after you've only laid one land ? Am I missing something that everyone shuffles & starts over ? I though it was just you while everyone else keeps all the stuff they have (that likely just killed you) out.
Quote from quixotegutYes, he could have... but the Kaalia at my table decided to Hollowed Burial (His Kaalia had already been tucked and Rafiq was getting stupid). I never really recovered... but it was good stuff.
The main point of the story was that it is hilarious to actually see peoples face when it goes off... yeah... I'm way behind... but at least I'm no longer a threat and still alive.
C'mon RtR... gimme some colorless artifact Hexproofing.
Quote from RWF_LessYou want a colorless artifact that gives Hexproof? Similar to Swiftfoot Boots, or in mass quantity?
Quote from BurntgerbilIf someone goes to target all your junk with shattering spree and you have...say... an Akroma's memorial and a Karn out with a lot (or infinite) mana, can you animate all your artifacts in response to the shattering spree and have them be illegal targets upon resolution of the spree ?
I know shattering spree isnt as prevalent as the blue bounce and white exiling that hurts us the most. Having an artifact that says
"Cards may not be returned to their owner's hand from the battlefield"
is right up there on my list of dream cards. Right next to the artifact that says:
"Players invert their libraries
(To invert your library, you flip your library upside down. If this is the first time you've inverted your library, the top card should be face up.)"
Quote from BurntgerbilNo future sight. I've always wanted a card that flips your (everyone's) library upside down. Not one card at a time - the whole thing. You'd now be drawing from what was the bottom. I've wanted this since Legends (field of dreams never really scratched my itch). When this effect happened, the now-top would be considered the top of your library.
It'd have cool interactions with scroll rack, top, top-of-the-deck-tutors additionally, miracles would be more obvious.
Quote from mutantman
In other news, reprints of Mountain, Island, and Forest have been confirmed; no word on Swamp or Plains, but odds seem good.
Quote from Burntgerbil
3) It dodges most removal like a certain top we all know. If I'm not mistaken, the sac is part of the (second ability) cost - so it's in the gy by time you need to choose - making it a legal target to return - right ?
Quote from FieryBalrogNo, you choose targets before costs are paid. That's why, for example, you can use wasteland on itself (choose target, then pay sac cost) and why you can't, conversely, sac codex shredder targeting itself.
