    DV, are you okay with me posting my messages to you about my recommendations on how to handle this? It might elicit some helpful input from others.

    Understood RE: awareness. I just noticed the trend and assumed it was deliberate that you weren't flaming past a certain point; sorry for the misunderstanding.

    With regards to GJ, if there were posts that required carding, rest assured that they were. Can you link the after-game chat that you're referring to, here?

    Edit: I do believe D_V does sincerely wish to address his behavior, and this is evidenced both by him speaking to me privately about this and seconding his own probation in here.

    My $0.02 as a former Councillor and long-time Mod of Mafia:

    Looking through the offending posts in question, I agree with Rodemy's movement. D_V has a history of flaming people in Mafia games until he has 2 infractions, toeing the line until the infractions expire, and then doing it all over again once they have. This is toxic behavior, and, unfortunately, it has not changed in all the years I've been playing Mafia on MTGS with D_V. I don't have any personal qualms with him - we've had some good conversations OoG, even if we have a lot of starkly contrasting views, whether they be on the way our community is run, Mafia role creation, game balance, or what have you. That said, his repeated behavior is not conducive to a friendly gaming environment for a tight-knit community such as ours, and I do third putting D_V on probation.

    As far as GJ goes, I looked at his part in the exchange, as well, and while there was some action worthy of infraction, GJ is certainly not a repeat offender/problem user for us, and I can remember maybe only one or two other times where he blew up in a way that was disproportionate to the stimulus, in question. His play attitude, lately, has been of the "IDGAF" variety, but I don't think it generally comes into games in a problematic way, except in rare instances such as this one. Bearing all of this in mind, I don't think GJ needs to be put on probation.

    Naw, you're fine. Smile That's why the extra rule about "if nobody's posted in a while, go for it!" is there.

    Let's get this game back up and running!

    Eco. He's this British dude who used to be in the Council. He resigned recently.

    Oh, you mean the guy Az, Sir Chris, and I murdered that one time?

    I had a really rude play, recently, with my Nicol Bolas Grixis Hugs deck, which I have affectionately dubbed "Community Chest".

    Normally, the deck fuels the entire table, using cards like Master of the Feast, Dictate of Kruphix, Howling Mine, Font of Mythos, Seizan, etc.. There's a Kozilek in there to prevent myself from decking out until I have Lab Man, which is my primary win condition (though I also utilize each of the Bolas Planeswalker cards, Rise of the Dark Realms, Insurrection, and Awaken the Erstwhile as alternate win cons).

    The deck was built to accelerate the table to their win conditions, and, if they take too long to win, it wins with overwhelming card draw. Now, with all of this in mind, the deck has some extremely brutal lines of play. Most recently, I dropped a T3 Notion Thief and cast Whispering Madness on T4, Ciphered on to Notion Thief. The entire table scooped.


    I also play an Atraxa artifact tokens combo deck. I got out Revel in Riches and Mechanized Production out (enchanting my Platinum Angel while I had out Platinum Emperion and Darksteel Forge), and was generating a TON of Treasure tokens off of Doubling Season + Smothering Tithe. At one point, I ended up with 35 Treasure tokens, with my opponents doing everything in their power to keep my Revel and Production off the board to prevent me from winning on my next turn. Eventually, my Forge got bounced, my Angel wiped, and my Revel bounced, and I lost after they destroyed my Emperion, but it was an epic game, overall. At one point, I turned all of my Treasure into 5/5's with Tezzeret the Seeker, but somebody cast Evacuation and that set me back a couple of turns.

    Yeah, I did some testing with Jin-Gitaxias where I deliberately made the decision to Entomb him over Griselbrand to see the impact, and every time I did, I just wanted to have Griselbrand, instead.

    If you disagree with the art direction, you could always be "that" person who sleeves their cards in sleeves with busty women/characters on them, which would then still give you something to look at, even if it's less deep than a connection to a strong female character that is also visually portrayed in a sultry manner.
