Quote from CrimeoCan somebody please briefly outline an example of the most common draw-in situation in a large pro type tournament? Don't have any experience with those, only FNM, and keeping track of a lot of rounds realistically is really difficult with made-up results.
Quote from McMTGHere is an example
Top 8 guys ID, 9 & 10 played cause of bad tiebreakers.
The guys 11 to 32 did have a chance to make top 8 if EVERYONE PLAYED. But because of ID shenanigans they didn't.
Quote from DakhwonThen the next question is... where is this incredible store that gives 100% value?!?!?
Most stores have to turn a profit, so offering them at the same value you sell them at equals no profit. Our store offers 50% on cards under $10, and 70% on cards over $10.

Quote from CheckboxNai didn't actually explain anything; all he did was say that Condoms' words were "scathing" and got upset that Condoms didn't actually offer any "help" towards the issues he was complaining about/pointing out. Basically Nai told us that Condoms was CI-banned for no other reason than the staff got butthurt because he didn't spruce up his language to their Special Snowflake Standards.
For review, here is every one of Condoms' posts in the previous thread:
"Or even if they can't justify it!
Sooooo, does this mean we can now be imfracted for trolling not jst users, but corporations/companies? That's crazygonuts."
"That's pretty accurate."
"So, no one answered my question. We can now be infracted for "trolling" companies, groups, and other non tangible entities such as but not limited to political parties, interest groups, etc? That's insane. What about all the posts in entertainment criticizing those in the entertainment industry or sports world?
"Wow. This is an Internet forum. Infracting people for strongly criticizing the things I listed is beyond ridiculous. Beyond it.
I assume the entertainment subs should soon be littered with retroactive infractions under this new wonderful interpretation of the rules then?"
"Basically all I'm getting at this point is "well infract as we see fit based on if we agree with your opinion and no you won't know if what you are posting is okay"
I guess everyone should never say anything negative about anything?
Hooray special snowflakes!"
"Former New England tight end Aaron Hernandez is a murderer and scum of a human being. What a waste of top talent.
The above is slander in your definition, algebra.
You are seriously missing the point. Neither is really slander, unless maybe the mtgstaff decides so based on who know what criteria."
Truly scathing stuff. Here, staff; have a burn heal.
Quote from euknemarchonWhere have you been? They just spent a page of the thread arguing about DTR and the Gutter. Checkbox tried to move it back to Condoms. He said he didn't think the posts made by Condoms were non-constructive. One of the points of CI involves people discussing mod action and questioning justifications. This isn't a magical Christmas land where if the mods say it's offensive it actually is offensive. That's why we're here talking about it. For example, Nai explained in some detail why he thought Condoms's posts weren't helpful, opening up the issue to scrutiny and discussion.

Quote from CheckboxBack to the thread topic;
this isn't really about the gutter, its about Condoms. Since when is reductio ad absurdum considered "not constructive"? Are we only allowing MTGS-Approved Forms of Debate now?
Quote from LoninGlimyrpostCan we get a card search bar on the main page? Like right next to search mtgsalvation, just a bar that says Search Cards or something (you'd need to move the twitter/fb buttons though).The search bar throughout the site works for cards as well.GlimyrpostThe spoilers page has some issues, mana symbols are overlayed on the text, which looks really sloppy, and the planechase symbol appears in strange places (I think its where // is for split cards)Added this to the list, thanks.

Quote from Valonus88Hey guys! The other day I played a fairly standard deadeye deck at a SCG open invitational (extremely small turn out, but still). I came in third, but it's really difficult to fight against the blitz and hyper-Aggro decks with this kind of a deck. I can post the list I was running if you'd like.
Here recently I was thinking: what about a white splash? That gives us access to verdict, centaur healer, azorius charm, Lyev Skyknight, Resto Angel, etc. if the mana is too difficult, what about dropping red entirely? Skyknight, healer, and Thragtusk are all still great targets for deadeye, and the white might give us a little more survive-ability.
With the splash, we'll still have arbor elf, verdant haven, chromatic lantern, and farseek to fix. But in order to fight Aggro, we probably won't want to waste turns playing ramp, rather would want to drop removal, flash dudes, and board wipes.
Anyway, I'd like to hear some thoughts about it.
Quote from SlivortalThis. It's something any competent tech company would have done ages ago. The year is 2013, applications should not be defined in terms of singular operating systems anymore; the quickly changing OS scene should make Wizards to make their software more platform-independent, and accessibility is a HUGE issue for those who want to take their game to the next level, but don't have a WINDOWS (TM) machine.
Quote from ShadowkillIn my opinion there aren't enough. I didn't play during those days but I wish for cards like boil to come back. Maybe not as powerful but I remember seeing cards that showed color hate of enemy colors. As for counters they need to be a part of the game because you need to be able to learn how to play around them and be a better player.
Quote from iTRVJust gonna say be very careful with fatpack boxes, they have a piece of cardboard in the lid that can easily catch on cards when you close it, ruining cards.
