    Not sure how I made it this far into spoiler season without realizing that killing a mutated creatured only gets rid of the top creature, but the others remain in play. I figured mutate was a kind of risky play, but that the mutate ETB effect on most creatures with mutate probably mitigated it.

    This is a lot more powerful.

    Not worth speculating about. The amount of possibilities is something like the number of atoms in the universe.

    Transitioning into full work-from-home mode is a hassle for a lot of companies. People have a lot of other things on their plate apart from spoiler season, so that probably got pushed to free up time for more basic but vital tasks.

    Mythic and legendary I think this could have stood to prevent the damage and only take one counter off. Other than that it’s solid. Not amazing. Just solid. Good, pushed stat line.


    wat

    You're proposing a 6/6 for 4 mana that you'd have to hit 6 times to kill? And if you didn't kill it, it would just take out your creatures left and right? And if you did kill it, it would immediately come back to repeat the whole thing but with twice the power?

    Thank you, your thinly veiled sarcasm truly adds to this discussion. I mean, by all accounts, you truly are a beacon of support here and we should all learn a thing or two from it.


    Nah, just wanted to shed a bit of light on how much of a drama queen you're coming off as, and I kinda think I made you see, just a little bit, whether you want to admit it or not. *****ty human beings for not wanting justification for a black woman in a fantasy card game. *Snort*.

    but you’ve chosen to cross a handful of my personal barriers, there should be a level of significance to it


    Fixed it for you.

    Son, you don't think we've all been through this before, with hundreds of others just like you? Who see themselves as the default template for a human being and the depiction of everyone else as a motivated choice that must be explained somehow?

    There's absolutely nothing you're adding to the pile; you're simply walking in the footsteps of the many other mental midgets who came before, step by step, by the numbers.

    Again, sh***y human beings, all of you. Hell, you judged me and you don’t even know me. That tells me all I need to know about you.


    You truly have been on the receiving end of some pretty big injustices here. I'm just sitting here shaking my head at what you had to go through. If there's anything I can do, let me know. You've been through some s****y stuff on this thread page, been judged and whatnot. Shame on all these people. Shame on them.

    There are a total of 58 results to spend 'an hour' looking at, proving that Mr. Bhogal83 has done *none* of the research on the matter. They also state that none of the examples provided show people with skin tones that befit people of European origin (who, may I remind everyone, includes people from the Mediterranean).

    I submit to the jury of public opinion whose case was properly argued and who failed to address any of the points raised, as had been put in the complaint by Mr. Bhogal83 in an earlier post.


    Is it so much to ask that if you start an argument, you should see it through? Has the valor of the right fallen so low that at every turn they are opposed they resort to intellectual cowardice?

    Or should it not come as a surprise that those who have admitted from their own mouths that they hate justice, also hate honor?


    The hilarious part is that despite his "I'll no longer be checking this thread", everyone knows he is checking the thread. Shaking, covered in sweat, and considering it better to have made it out alive than to lose more of his dignity.

    She's an elf.
    You're going way out of your way to justify Dulcinea incarnate not being pretty. If not her, who?
    Action women have been largely and understandably desexualized, and even seductress type characters are avoided and those we have to keep around like Liliana keep getting covered up further and posed in less glamorizing scenes than they used to. You may celebrate the abortion of harmless stereotypes if you must, but when the exemplar vessel of courtly love chivalry is not allowed to be beautiful ***** has gone too far.


    And then you grow sad.

    Can you please not go into a political tirade because you saw a fish woman magically restraining a human man?


    Okay, that was ******* hilarious.

    At what point will men have suffered enough?


    You know, your entire post would gain a lot more substance if you established how you're actually suffering in practice, and not just in principle. Like, what are some of the real-world harms you're going through because of a pattern of dominant women being perpetuated in some forms of media?

    Go ahead and give me your best actual examples. Let us know the actual forms of your suffering that your post hints at so strongly. Because for each one you give me, I'll give you two examples of the reverse being the case.

    Again this is proof of how you fail to understand what ive said and only interpret what you want and how you want. Youre too emotional and Ive had enough of arguing with you and this method you've chosen of reinterpreting what ive said and my argument.


    Been using the internet since 1996, and here's one of the mainstays: Some dude who is called out for his lack of logic by goddamn near everybody in a thread, yet insists that people just aren't interpreting his words right.

    There was a topless male. You were triggered. The following five thread pages were just filler.
