    Re: Best Forum for Modern

    This thread was wavering between staying on-topic and shifting to another bash-mtgsal thread pretty much from the beginning. What I find amusing is it probably would have stayed relatively on-topic if ktkenshinx hadn't defended mtgsal.

    Anyways... the last couple posts reminded me of these threads:
    MTGS-Salvation-is-a-joke
    MTGS-is-a-joke-check-this-out
    There's a couple familiar faces in there.

    I am pretty sure Lejay had a note in his sig that he was/is a moderator on a French Legacy forum for a while...
    I don't understand the need to show transparency about your relationship-to or status-on another forum though. It seems to me the content of someone's signatures boils down to 3 categories:
    1. Things you are proud of
    2. Things you hate
    3. Things you find funny

    I find every post on mtgsal but the OP of a spoiler thread mind-numbing, but what I've read of ktkenshinx's posts have always been well thought out and polite. When WotC was deciding between Modern and Over-Extended, his posts were always insightful. In fact, if WotC had decided on Over-Extended instead of Modern, I probably never would have gotten into Legacy. And until I can play Blood Moon on turn 1, I won't ever play Modern competitively.

    Blood Moons are too expensive. Can I just use Magus of the Moon and Monastery Swiftspear. In testing I've found this to be promising.

    Those all look terrible!

    Either Rite of Flame or Chrome Mox need to be removed from the banned list.
    I got started with competitive Magic playing All-In-Red for 7 year Extended.

    4 Rite of Flame
    4 Chrome Mox
    4 Desperate Ritual
    4 Seething Song
    4 Simian Spirit Guide

    4 Blood Moon
    4 Magus of the Moon
    4 Demigod of Revenge
    4 Deus of Calamity
    4 Empty the Warrens
    2 Genju of the Spires

    18 Mountains

    That is what I want to play! WotC should ban Ascension so they can unban the fast mana I need to play my pet deck.

    So much trolling :D

    @Topic, I'm on MTGS and I only look in threads, where I know that there are good players who are knowing, what they are doing (and in which decks I'm interested, since sometimes people find cards, which are pretty good for the deck, where as I didn't even know they existed (e.g. Suffer the Past in Grixis)). Furthermore, I have some Private Chats with some guys for developing, reporting and talking. It is pretty decent. On the other hand there is a lot of trash there but of course you will have it, when you have such a big user base.

    @ktkenshinx, really appreciate your work on MTGS, especially for collecting the tournament data, which is pretty difficult from times to times.

    Greetings,
    Kathal

    Tried it, meh. It was good with ssg to get a turn one chalice @1. Then it was dead in hand if drawn. This is essentially the same as ssg's exile. I didj't hit 7 mana too many times to actually get a monster out of it. Blood moon was of course part of the mix.

    The "us vs them" attitude of the staff still remains. I'll be honest, I personally think its a joke that a user here feels the need to sig they are a moderator on MTGS while on a other site. It shows that they don't actually understand how the rest of the community looks at their site, and it shows that even not on their own site they are always trying to play the "authority card"

    If you have the time in the world to waste. I guess you can waste it on MTGS. But if you actually have a life.... "Ain't nobody got time for that shit"
    This is percisely why I am here. The moderation.

    EDIT: Although, up to this point, I only lurk.

    Re: Best Forum for Modern

    Necro time, I guess. I just found this thread by googling "best modern mtg" and find it is still relevant as of 6/2018. I was just out on MTGS trying to get up to date info on Modern Goblins decks and what I found was a whole lot of nothing. Specifically, I saw a couple people in 1 on 1 conversations consisting of one liners, and even single words per post. Really? All of this would have been much more appropriate via PM. If this is what they call "Moderation" then I will forgo MTGS altogether!
