Quote from wtwlf123Sometimes we do and sometimes we don't. We generally prefer no sideboard play whenever possible. But sometimes with players that are brand new to the format, we'll use sideboards for their first few drafts.
Quote from Ixrixis
On the contrary, my simple-minded friend, there is actually a massive increase in studies proving red meat to be less-than-healthy for you in terms of healthy growth. I'd like to know where you've read ANY study that supports a diet higher in red meat than what is averagely consumed today. In fact, I challenge you to post a legitimate study from a legitimate source (i.e. not from mcdonalds.com, in fact; almost anything NOT from a .com site would do) that is both new (let's say in the past 5 years) and relevant to fitness dieting. Note that I am only referring to red meat and only referring to it's effectiveness for fitness purposes.
I'm not debating whether protein is good for building muscle mass, but you are forgetting about dry beans known as legumes as well as other alternative sources of protein.
In all honesty, it's a sub-par trade off at best. Excess sodium, HDL cholesterol, fat, nitrates, free radicals and the prospect of disease isn't worth the tastiness of a steak if you're both trying to watch your health (not just your weight, mind you) and build muscle mass. There are countless alternatives that both provide more protein as well as fall under the 'healthy' category.
I think the phenomenon you are referring to is mixed up, you must be referring to the advent of meat and dairy lobbyists brow beating the FDA into misleading the American public to consume more animal products for the sake of business. The fact remains that a human being does not need to consume animal products to live, it is not essential to life in any way.
I'm eager to hear your response to this topic. Though I highly suggest you read a book before you reply, as I work in the field of nutritional studies.
Quote from kojiroI can't stand 6 mana sweepers. I just don't think they're very good. Catastrophe, Austere Command, and Akroma's Vengeance aren't good enough for my 600 card list, so this is obviously not going to make the cut.
Quote from studderingdavechange up your running styles to work a variety of muscles. mixing sprints and jogging can make you a better rounded runner. since you have a set date, rework your diet. Carbs are fine in the morning, make sure to eat 3 meals, since your body is going to need to replenish. Eat light dinners and have a good gap between final meals and night sleep. Drink water (obviously).
Quote from wtwlf123That's not even remotely true. Fireblast gets played sacrificing two mountains all the time, and it doesn't always have to kill your opponent immediately. The game can go on for as many turns as it needs to after playing Fireblast.
Quote from Ixrixis[color=green][B][FONT=Trebuchet MS]The most important thing you should consider is your diet. Eat healthfully while working out.
Chowing down on a burger or some red meat is usually not the best idea, though it's debatable about animal products affect on fitness.
Quote from dschummWhile I think this card may be eliminated by most I think it is due to narrowness, and not because "card X is better". As we get more interesting lands in the cube I could see this making it.
Quote from SpEkKiO99Squadron Hawk had many predecessors that should also be allowed if your going to go there:
But then you are going down a slippery slope of how many of these types of cards to allow and also giving the list of these cards to everyone before a draft and remembering them during a draft.
I'm not going there, only 1 copy of each card in my cube.
Quote from wtwlf123If you're not in a position where you can't win on the following turn, you can't cast it.
