  • posted a message on 'Mystery Booster' product
    So if I'm reading this correctly, the ONLY cards that will ever appear in foil in the "non-convention" Mystery Boosters are a selection of 121 cards? In other words, most likely the most expensive thing your can pull in these packs is a non-foil Mana Crypt?

    I ask because it's been my dream to add a foil Mana Crypt to my cube, but not if I have to pay out the ass for it.

  • posted a message on Improvising with food
    My buddy came up with a good question that I'm not sure I know the answer to.

    Much like how back in the day when you announced that you were casting Thoughtcast with a few artifacts on the battlefield, one of them being a Chromatic Sphere, you reduce the costs appropriately to find out how much you pay to put the spell on the stack, then when you go to pay those costs, you could crack the Star to produce the blue mana you needed to help cast the Thoughtcast.

    I'm not sure the same way applies here, but if my buddy has a food artifact and a Gilded Goose on the battlefield and he wants to cast Whir of Invention, can he tap the food to have improvise help pay for part of the cost of Whir of Invention and still be able to sacrifice the food to Gilded Goose to also help pay for the Whir's cost? I'm thinking yes, but I want to make sure before I tell him he can or can't.

    I'm guessing a judge of Level 2 or higher might need to answer this with certainty.

  • posted a message on Regular packs having extended art
    The extended art cards are cards that are comparable to the UMA boxtopper cards in style, while the borderless planeswalker cards are akin to the planeswalkers we saw in the mythic editions of GRN, RNA, and WAR. They are similar, but different, but both are reused styles from prior sets and promotions.

    How do you guys keep track of your cubes, as far as when you make changes, what you take out, what you put in, etc? I use cubetutor.com, but it seems down at the moment. Did anything happen to it?

    Even if you play this Turn 4, follow it up with another 4 drop that same turn, and then the following turn play another land and up to 2 five drops for free, you can't play more than 2 spells per turn, whether you pay with mana or not.

    This card is fake. Please lock. No rarity letter next to the collector number, and the wording says "shuffle its library", which is not proper templating.

    Pretty cool with Vilis from M20.

  • posted a message on Major changes to Magic announced at SDCC? (New booster variants and premium styles)
    Is anybody going to be at the panel in person tonight? The only way we'll find out what is going on is through secondhand informational reporting since there will be no streaming of this panel.

  • posted a message on [RUMOR] The Commander 19 decks will be based on keywords
    I never was a fan of Morph, and for that matter, transform cards, just because I would rather be playing my cards face up instead of playing this silly game of "What do you think this might be?" I'll never play morph cards unless there's an inherent mana advantage to do so. With that said, I hope they give us some sort of artifact that reads something like:

    Ugin's Talisman - 4
    Rare
    Face down creature spells you cast cost 2 less to cast.
    Morph, Megamorph and Manifest costs of face down creatures you control are reduced by 2.

    No, if there are no legal targets, the cost of the activated ability can't be paid.

    If I may suggest, I'm guessing an admin will probably ask you to please use the rules forum for further rules questions instead of necro-ing old posts.

    Quote from Taleran »
    Reanimate would resolve and drain you before the Demon is in play I am pretty sure.


    Reanimate reads as the following

    "Put target creature card from a graveyard onto the battlefield under your control. You lose life equal to its converted mana cost."

    You do this in the order the card says to, so when you lose life, that will trigger Vilis because it's already been put onto the battlefield. This works the same way as the Madcap Experiment - Platinum Emperion combo does.

    If anyone had played the Dominion card game before, for some reason this new template is reminding me of those cards.
