    Always use tracking when sending high price items to have documentation of the delivery. I auto use tracking for anything over $8ish in value.

    I feel like a huge difference between brainstorm and Dig is that brainstorm, while yes is ubiquitous throughout legacy its power level clearly peaks with the skill of the player, while dig is much more of a blunt object in terms of its use and skill dependency.

    in short answer, it depends.

    Vs aggro match-ups, its not great.

    vs more combo or control matchups he is an absolute house.

    I will probably go down one geist and add in a scaab ruinator or 2.

    Was playing at an FNM where I won the die-roll. I say the number on the die, and the opposing player quickly asks, "you on the draw?" So I instinctively say "yep" automatically hearing if he is asking if I'm on the play as someone normally would. I balk "no wait, what I meant...", he smiles and goes. "Got ya!...you can be on the play." So cheeky and hysterical. loved it.

    posted a message on I'm quitting Magic, here's why
    First I want to applaud you for taking such a step back and reassessing some of the things in life, it isn't easy to do, and as a psychotherapist I think that whatever path you choose from her forward will be well served by your ability to stop, think, and more importantly take a walk in your wife and children's shoes. I do feel like on some level, and I may be saying this more for soothing my own dissonance about the time spent playing magic than yours, that there is some middle ground. It too at times has impacted other parts of my life that I hold dear, my wife, rock climbing (my first sporting love), even my career (as I type this on MTGSalvation with my ignored dissertation open in the background). But that being said I try to make it as social as possible. Granted its different for me than it seems for you, in that I got into magic from a close group of climbing friends as a fun saturday night activity, and have tried to keep it that way as much as possible. Outside of MTGS and youtube I only play once, maybe 2x a week, only in person, and only in tournaments if I'm making a night of it with my friends. I find this helps to keep the thirst at bay, give me something to look forward too, and help compartmentalize it within my non-magic activities and relationships. Not perfect, but manageable.
