Jul 31, 2014TK-421 posted a message on [New Info] MaRo talks about the same walker done twice in one block.This is speculation.Posted in: Speculation
Jul 28, 2014The mods made the right call at the time. It's easy to say it was a mistake with 20/20 hindsight. But when you're the premier website where almost all the rest of the web pulls their info from, that split decision on whether it's real or not becomes much harder. I'd rather have people be sure that when we post something, they can trust it's real than just throw everything at the wall and see what sticks. Sure we'll occasionally declare something fake when it's real, but we don't get people hyped up on something that won't be happening that way.Posted in: The Rumor Mill

And the paper's wrong. And the hologram is hidden. And it is quite blurry.Quote from 1337vanguard »Bahaha I knew these were real. Jeez...how hilarious. As many of us pointed out, the faker would've had to have gotten his hands on the new art before anyone else, but no "The font looks squiggly!"

Hardly. I'm technically the only mod to have received a C&D from Wizards and it was for something else. I forget who deleted it, but it's likely because it was completely unsubstantiated and as you mentioned, a wrong font. Those are really big strikes. Ignoring hindsight, it would be deleted again.Quote from catalyst »Can't wait for the mods to come back and admit the instant deletion of the FtV leak was a mistake. Only thing I can figure is they got a C&D or something. The only excuse they had was "the font looked wrong."
However, now that you mention it, I'll go take a look into whether it warrants being unarchived.
I read it as "Stores have been complaining that they continually run out of one pack, which makes players upset, because there's always one pack better than the rest, so we add variance so people won't go after the good card."Quote from Viserdes »I read that as "we have heard everyone hates set prerelease promo rares, so were adding a little more variance".
EDIT: After comparing the texts it still looks fake. Looking closely at Cataclysm and Smokestack, the T's on each look like they have the tail, where Beleren has no tail on its T. If someone could get a clearer picture showing the T's to be tailless, I'd be happy to open it up to discussion...
May 30, 2014I'm a Mormon (so pretty strict in regards to spiritual discipline), and I play. Now granted, I could be considered an outlier as I am a convert, but our pastor-equivalent is a geek, and I suspect that were Magic not a time and money sink, he'd play too.Posted in: Religion

Apr 28, 2014fnord posted a message on New DCI policy changes effective on Journey into Nix's releasePosted in: The Rumor MillQuote from Rbd340
Sucks for players who need a hearing aid.
Or a pacemaker.
I fully expect most judges will use discretion in such cases, but they really should spell out the exceptions in the policy documents.
Mar 31, 2014Day Two Final Vote CountPosted in: Mafia
AsianInvasion (8): Sir Karn, masterplum, dkingsland967, Rhand, TK-421, Hunger, Axelrod, AsianInvasion
TK-421 (2): Cantripmancer, Dagaen
As I prepared to advance the plot, Niv-Mizzet swooped down and broke the fourth wall.
"Jace!" he bellowed, "Behold my superiority. In a matter of two of these 'game Days' I have already become victorious. Not even the combined minds of 15 Ravnicans could even begin to approach my dazzling intellect."
"Niv-Mizzet," I said, "You just got lynched. That certainly isn't winning, and it's actually bad for—"
"Nonsense!" the great dragon roared as he reared up on his hind legs and spread his wings. He came down with a massive thud, and then prattled on, "I've never lost anything before in my life, much less a children's game such as this one."
I tried to explain that this "children's game" featured actual death, but he scoffed at this.
"What are these 'citizens of Ravnica' if not pieces on a chessboard?" he said, "Pieces to be moved by players such as myself. And with my wondrous victory today I have demonstrated that my mastery of the game is unparalleled!"
"Again," I said, "you didn't actually win. You—"
"Begone!" he roared again, "I'll not have you besmirching my glorious name. Leave this plane and accept that I am the superior being."
Before I could tell him that this wasn't actually a competition between us, and that no, he really didn't win, Niv-Mizzet turned and flew off into the sunset, cursing me and proclaiming his greatness all the while.
"Well," I said, "I suppose he can be a winner in his own mind."

Night will last for approximately 72 hours. Actions not submitted to be by the 72 hour mark will not be counted. Please inform me if you have an optional Night action you wish not to use.
Dec 23, 2013Posted in: The Rumor MillQuote from TK-421There's nothing in the hint that even suggests FoW beyond twisting "No pain, no gain" to fit the pitch. Wondering if FoW is Standard viable is the province of Baseless Speculation or Magic General, and I would suggest Baseless Speculation.
I was being facetious. Sorry if that wasn't clear.
On topic: I'm predicting an instant-speed Read the Bones for UB, maybe with life loss of the drawn card's cmc.
Dec 11, 2013Posted in: The Rumor MillQuote from MonopomanWe will get all 5 scry lands that are missing from Theros. MTGsalv mods are just waiting to put them in the spoiler once they know their names for sure. I can't even remember the last time we had a 3 card cycle of 2 colored lands.
No, Wizards has been pretty clear that the remaining 5 are being split up between the last 2 sets. If we had good reason to believe the remaining two were in, we'd put them in with placeholder names.
