    Oh boy.

    Nate just emailed me and told me that April is looking good for Big Arse II. I wonder what's going on.

    Who is sponsoring this? Is it you, Bob, or AS? I hope that AS didn't get their wires crossed.

    Sounds good to me. I like Duals.

    Being that this is Altered I do have to ask the question, they do count a playset as 40 duals correct?

Plus, engineered explosives has sunburst.

    Just wondering, but how does if go when there are 10 sets of duals with 8 players? Does top 1/2 get the playsets left? If so, it seems I'll be leaving with a playset of Underground Seas and Plateaus.

    Hmm, a tourney for duals. I guess I don't need really need a second or third set of Trops or Seas or Taigas, but I guess superfluous amounts of duals are always nice. I'll talk to the other NoVAn's and see if we can get a couple of cars up here to take the duals home.

    Agreed. I want more trops :;): (Just sold 13 of the fuckers and still have 8 left).

    I'm liking this tourney more and more.

    Bob, if there's any way I could help out just PM me, I'd love to see this thing be big.

    (I wonder where those Transmutate Artifacts and Su-chi's came from???...)

    None of you know me, but I live in Albany. I'm definitely up for this tournament (don't worry, there's absolutely no chance of me winning... I think right now I'm playing U/G Madness, and I'll *definitely* scrub out). Maybe by then I'll have finished ATS, but that's not the point.

    I would like to go, but I need a ride. If anyone is coming from Albany, and could give me a ride, that'd be awesome :)

    Note to self....don't come in 9th.... On a positive note, there is growing interest in this tourney in NNY (which should boost attendance nicely). What I really want to know...what level do we need before the 4x Foil Eternal Witness get put on the table? And what place are they reserved for? Hmm? Hmm?
    TL,DR: if you think Saito is ok, check your moral compass. It may be broken. - Spikey Mikey, amen brother

    A casual stasis deck? You must not really like your friends. Do you play it before or after you pull the wings off of flys and microwave the neighbor's cat? - EwokSlayer

    Grim Reminders? Poetic I suppose.
    Why not give the 9th place person something that doesn't totally blow also.

    True, but imagine how many Blue Mages would have to change their underwear if there was a Foil FOW.

    Actually don't, its a very nasty thought.

    I have to scrub my brain with a wire brush and soap now.

    I can't wait for this tourney. I almost have my playset of duals finished, and having extras is just great!


    @cosik, what deck did you play saturday at Amrod's.
