Quote from Aurora IlluminaAnyways, random attachment from my calendar.
Quote from vligerdragonI would like to request that August's title have something to do with sharks, since Shark Week starts on August 12, and Shark Week is (imo) the best week of the year. I have not thought of what this title might be, but I will think on it.
Quote from pikachugundamSeems good to me! Now we just need someone to get us some art. Anyone seen jomafro?
Quote from Kankennon
Well, we want to at least make up a mock card and put something cool on it to look at, right?
Shall we just start scouring the net for viable images instead?
Quote from pikachugundamI build tribal decks... The only problem is that after taking apart Linvala to build Sigarda, it's no longer an angel themed EDH deck... I do however have Drana vampires, Olivia Vampires, Oona 'Faeries' (to some extent) and am debating building an elf EDH deck... Maybe Yeva or Ezuri... Possibly Glissa Sunseeker or Nath of the Gilf-Leaf
Quote from pikachugundamI guess the bad thing about an elf EDH deck is that a single sweeper pretty much shuts the deck down...
Quote from ThatRedwoodThere are some recovery options.
Prowess of the Fair (next to Door of Destinies or Coat of Arms or something)
Wirewood Herald (for Sylvan Messenger)
Wren's Run Packmaster (or other Champions over the Messenger)
No Rest for the Wicked (with Birchlore Rangers and Nettle Sentinel to vomit everyone out again)
Quote from Kankennon
I need to voice our opinion as to whether we are cool with the Clan Mafia game being ran at the same time.
Where did our resident Mafia players go?
Wheat_Grinder? Are you up for representing [The Crafters] in this?
Jomafro one time expressed interest, but where has he gone off to?
Quote from DakmorQueen
I have no one to make me signautres or banners, or avvatarts!
Quote from SyphonSo, maybe you don't, maybe you do, but I'm somewhat of a story adept where Magic is concerned (and a lot of other games, I love the backgrounds)
So it's no surprise that I enjoy talking to a certain someone who also enjoys talking about the background of Magic. We had a fun conversation where I went off on a tangent, mocking the people who come up with weird unsubstatianted ideas.
(13:01:05) syphonides: I was almost
(13:01:07) syphonides: going to take it too far
(13:01:08) syphonides: and say
(13:01:11) syphonides: something to the effect of
(13:03:26) syphonides: And you know what? I bet Mishra is going to be appearing too. He survived the punishment meted out by Yawgmoth for failing and the destruction of Phyrexia and now he´s back to atone for his crimes to Dominaria.
(13:05:01) syphonides: He pulled a spark out of his butt because that´s where neowalkers have their sparks and planeswalked straight to Ravnica because he knew, thanks to an ancient scroll hidden in Phyrexia talking about an old plane of a cityplane, that there may lie the answers to ridding the world of the threat of Phyrexia.
(13:06:03) friend: it gets pretty bad at times
(13:06:17) friend: I wish I could say that what you just posed was a stretch, but it really only barely is
(13:07:31) syphonides: oh
(13:07:33) syphonides: but there is more
(13:08:20) syphonides: You see, once he found Ravnica, Mishra fought against Niv Mizzet and his Izzet because Mizzet was at war with Nicol Bolas, who is completely the same colours as Mishra.
(13:09:01) syphonides: In an all out battle between every bleeping planeswalker we know, even Nissa, who appears only to planeswalk away when she sees she is on Ravnica again, Mishra is heavily wounded and flees.
(13:09:55) syphonides: He ends up on a plane under control by Phyrexians and has to fight for his life the second he gets there. Since he is so wounded, he is barely a challenge for the Phyrexian Negators who have him locked up.
(13:10:13) syphonides: He meets a woman there who he falls in love with because she reminds him of Kayla Bin-Kroog and together they have a baby.
(13:11:00) syphonides: Even amongst all the Phyrexians, love can blossom, you see. At that point, the wife passes away and Mishra, distraught, leaves the plane and the baby behind since he is now fixed up again.
(13:11:09) syphonides: That baby turns out to be Elspeth.
(13:11:20) friend: I was wondering where time travel would come into play
(13:11:23) syphonides: dude
(13:11:27) syphonides: I haven´t even begun
(13:11:37) friend: no, but I think you're done
(13:11:37) syphonides: and I am totally going to post this in a spoiler.
(13:11:40) syphonides: Nope!
(13:12:16) syphonides: When Mishra planeswalks away, he ends up trapped between planes and is suddenly thrown back into time thanks to the vagaries of the blind eternities.
(13:12:42) syphonides: At the directions of Nicol Bolas, he takes the guise of the Raven Man and forms Liliana to what she is.
(13:13:10) syphonides: having accomplished this, he goes back in time again
(13:13:14) syphonides: however
(13:13:16) syphonides: ANOTHER ACCIDENT HAPPENS
(13:13:32) friend: add spatial merging where he stops off in World of Warcraft
(13:13:34) syphonides: he gets thrown farther in time and ends up near an Argivian archeological dig.
(13:13:35) friend: because that totally happens
(13:13:52) syphonides: at the dig,he talks to his younger self and convinces him not to be so jealous.
(13:14:14) syphonides: The shattering of the Thran portal locking the Phyrexians in never happens, Urza and Mishra never go to war and stay friends.
(13:14:20) syphonides: Thus rendering ALL OF THE STORYLINE MOOT!
(13:14:58) syphonides: *throws mic on the floor as a diss*
Quote from SyphonI know I can't. Because I am who I am. Fat, nerd, vicious. People are scared of me.
Quote from SyphonI am my own weapon. Specialisation breeds weakness. That's why my greatest weapon is my vast intellect. Not that I can bludgeon zombies with it, mind you (NOT YET!) but man, are brains dangerous.
Quote from KankennonI'm cool with something like that. Thoughts everyone?
