    Re: Theros: Beyond Death spoilers

    Doesn't seem overall better than Eidolon of Blossoms. Mana usually isn't a problem in Enchantress, so saving one mana doesn't seem worth the slot. Having a green beater doesn't solve many of the...

    Re: [Deck] T.E.S. - The EPIC Storm

    Bant, not RUG. One of my favorite matches ever streamed, from the early days of streaming:

    Sticky: Re: What Should I Play In My Metagame?

    That deck is kind of a jack-of-all-trades, master of none. It's more about the sideboards and flex slots than anything else. Cloudpost decks and Eldrazi decks destroy it in the absence of Back to...

    Re: How to save Legacy

    The foolhardy part would be to think that that format would still be Legacy (as the OP implied). There are plenty of other formats, and many of them are fun. Just because we play Legacy doesn't mean...

    Re: How to save Legacy

    This blows my mind.

    1) Deal with reputable shops and people.
    2) Buy a loupe.

    Fear no more.

    Also, if you know someone who knows someone making counterfeits, pass on the info to WOTC, because...

    Re: Can we show support for Terese Nielsen?

    Emurian, your post comes off plenty hateful, and I imagine this thread will simply be locked, but I'll give you a reply.

    Yes, you can show support for anyone. If you appreciate Terese Nielsen and...

    Sticky: Poll: Re: All B/R update speculation.

    Veil of Summer is a big one. I personally don't feel Hymn is even playable with Veil of Summer in the format, so our perspectives are pretty different on this point.

    Re: UR Delver at Mox Boarding House 1K - Top 4

    Thanks. I do see it as an upgrade. I went deep the first week Brazen Borrower was released and played four in my maindeck, and it definitely performed. I knew I'd be hurting the blind-flip odds on my...

    Re: No more Legacy on the SCG Tour

    Correction: Legacy is a popular format and has plenty of players. Star City Games gave the format a boost, but the format was well-established before then. Almost every single year I've been playing...
  12. Re: Puget Sound Battleground 2 (Everett, WA) -- November 9-10

    Strong turnout for the first day of events. Some of the regular Legacy players were siphoned off by the attractive alternatives, but ~100 is solid and I think a little better than anticipated (for...

    Re: No more Legacy on the SCG Tour

    To me, the largest loss will be the semi-regular SCG coverage of Legacy. SCG has the best rigs and the best commentary team in Cedric and Patrick, so although Legacy will continue on elsewhere, it...

    Re: [DTB] U/R Delver

    Snapcaster Mage doesn't do enough to advance the tempo game plan. It isn't much of a threat. Snapcaster is best in midrange and control decks, which make more land drops. Adding lands to ensure you...

    Interestingly, Oko is in six out of those eight decks. Big splash for that card.

    Awesome username! Vine Dryad is pretty unorthodox, but it's reasonable fodder for Dread Return and helps the green count after sideboard. What's the logic for Flayer of the Hatebound over Lotleth...
