Quote from Saouro
On the bright side, there is no more rumoring about MaRo' ego. We now know with 100% certainty that he is on a power trip equal to that of President Bush.
Quote from billythefridgeI was in one of the later flights, #8 to be exact and I was actually sitting across from Brian Tinsman, who was Lead Designer of the Time Spiral set. As we were waiting for the event to start, MaRo came over and was talking with him. I don't remember his exact words, but I think one or two of his children were ill or something and he was stressed... now we see he was probably even more stressed because of the Timeshifted Cards being posted on the site... which is like a brick house falling from an already shakey foundation (which was the Adult Swim ads).
His surprise party was well recieved, as a surprise or not... I mean, it still had that party atmosphere. There were bonus Foil Rares, bonus Shifted Rares, awesome nostalgia... even more awesome game play. This pre-release is easily the best one I've ever been to... the packs are plentiful (the return of the God Pack) and the promo was so great. I'm so happy I've got 3 of them... really wish I'd have squeezed in another Sealed for a Playset, but hey... it's all to the good.
This pre-release pushed me to play in my first FNM, ever... I ended up winning the thing, which was an added bonus. My love for Magic and limited play is so high right now, I can definitely see myself becoming a draft hound. I can't wait to play TS Limited again.
Quote from Petear_Griffin »Oh, and Wits End is terrible too. Just because it is iconic, doesn't make it good. Frankly, it is ugly. Its some wrinkled, hairless face, with white eyes. It is iconic for sure, but it is ugly and is lacking something.
Quote from Petear_Griffin »I didn't find anything wrong with the article. So what if he isn't an expect in judging art, are you? Sure, some of his opinons were brief, but whatever. I thought it was just fine. Don't let all the negative reviews keep you down.
Anyway, Rebecca Guay's art is absolute trash. Seriously, my buddies and I could get drunk and draw better pictures with magic markers than she could completely sober, and I can't even draw!! No, they don't need to have blood dripping off the fangs, but can we try to make it less obvious Crayolas were used in the "art". I find her stuff to be very bland, and almost blotchy in spots and it is really terrible. Its almost like she was in a rush, then just tried to slop something together just to see if they would print it. Find a new job lady.
Quote from Tahn »That was directed at that fact, yes.
