Actually, no, it isn't. Literary tragedy is about a downfall related to your own tragic flaw--not random murder.

Quote from NathanIWWell, the nature of casual playgroups is that there's always someone who likes strange strategies. And one player in this case absolutely loves both Dimir and Golgari and milling both himself and others. So it's definitely in. I can't have a Return to Ravnica themed game and not have the mechanics that the most reliable attendee of game nights likes the most. I also know that no one hates mill as everyone has, at some point, made a mill deck during a cube draft and loved it.
This group is also not a magic group per se, but a general gaming group at which Magic features regularly. And it has literally never been normal formats other than tenchester cube draft. So there's not really going to be expectations or normal magic play or the conditioning that dueling has on expected win rates. The group has lots of stories about various board, miniature and roleplaying games that "came down to that one die roll".
The only negative experience I can ever recall from Magic with this group was mana flooding or mana screw. In short, not being able to play the actual spell cards. Shouldn't be an issue with Commie Box.
Maybe this is a larger topic for Commie Box. How do you design differently when the audience is made up of Magic regulars? How about when it's casual board game people who only play magic every so often? I'm so far removed from the normal magic experience that sometimes I forget people having expectations forged in dueling at FNMs.
Quote from NathanIWI just tore my cube apart and sorted it by colour and guild. I should be able to get the first test game in tonight or tomorrow.
Quote from Chenjesu If you rewind time and play it forward and matter and energy will always have the same positions, the spacial location of matter and energy is in a direct correlation to their temporal positions, otherwise matter and energy would have no reason to keep assuming an exact position just because of the time coordinate you are on.
