    No, Dual's correct. Color order goes WUBRG. Also Dual-got a list for Slimefoot? This is my Slimefoot deck, would love to see how you built him. I think he's my favorite commander in a really long time.
  2. Still super confused as to why Piranha Plant is a thing, but holy crap am I glad it is.  Shit's fun.

      You can't supplant the plant.

      I'm pretty sure it now has the best recovery in the game.  If you don't get killed by a launch, you can pretty much always make it back to stage.

      The plant feels pretty weak to me. Especially in this meta where jumping and spamming aerials is the best way to win. Poor plant just can't keep up.

    So even though I post about it a lot, I haven't actually played Magic in like...a year. A few of my friends and I got together today, so I brought some decks to test out. And wow. I made some good-ass decks. I won a game with Slimefoot, even though I had been manascrewed the whole game and only had 4 mana to use. Deathspore Thallid was just stupidly good, absolutely the MVP of that deck next to Slimey himself. A friend of mine did really well with my Gishath dinosaur deck, which was nice to see. And then in the next game, my friend sat down with my Varina zombies deck. And good god. I've been working on this deck for about 4 years now-I had started assembling the cards for a zombie deck back during like Khans of Tarkir, when Sidisi, Brood Tyrant came out. And then last year, when Varina came out, I swapped over to her. Which turns out to have been the right move because she is like...ridiculously consistent. My friend won on turn 5 or 6 with Approach of the Second Sun. It was like halfway down his deck but he managed to dig that deep in the space of just a couple of turns. It was super impressive. Also kind of nice to see a deck that I'd spent a ton of time and money on do so well. Kinda wish I'd been piloting it, but hey-it's my deck so I'm counting it as a win for me.

    It's so big and stupid. I love it so much. Instantly going into Xantcha.

    It is absolutely insane how much good stuff Orzhov has gotten the past few days. I'm going to have to make at least 3 or 4 cuts to my Ayli deck to fit everyone in. Also I might have to change my Ayli deck into a new-Teysa deck. Also this:

    What the actual fuck is this. Why would they print this in the same colors as Freed from the Real and Intruder Alarm. Why.

    On the plus side, imp tribal! All jokes aside I'm still mad hyped for both Rakdos legendaries from this set. Rakdos and Judith are both super interesting, might make decks for both of them.

    Dear God she's fucking beautiful. Move over Ayli, there's a new amazing Orzhov commander in town.

    I agree, I do want to see more support cards. But still, saccing things to get value is pretty much my favorite way of playing the game, so any mechanic that actively rewards that is pretty fine by my standards.

    I gotta say though, making Doomed Traveller its own mechanic and then tying it to Orzhov was a stroke of genius.

    Anguish BBR Instant Destroy target artifact, creature or planeswalker. I absolutely adore this card already. It takes Dreadbore and for an extra B, gives instant speed and a wider target range? Sold.

    Second time ever for me, first time was Ephara, back during Theros block. But I liked most of the gods besides Pharika so she doesn't count much.

    Bought a 3-pack of Ultimate Masters, pulled Through the Breach, Back to Basics, and a foil Kozilek. Was pretty good.
  14. Damn, Epic Games going for the throat with their Steam clone game store.  Giving away a free game every 2 weeks all next year, starting with Subnautica and then Super Meat Boy.

      Hopefully the competition benefits steam users.

      ChiComs want into the digital distribution market, and are willing to bleed to get into it. I don't like it.

    I find it incredible that the last time we had a good Standard, Return to Ravnica had just rotated. And now that Ravnica's back, standard is good again.

    Uhh...Seb McKinnon? Noah Bradley? Just because Terese Nielsen doesn't do art anymore, it doesn't mean magic has shitty art now.

    The box art is also looking like it's going to be DIg Through Time. Man, I'm so happy for that reprint, it was getting really expensive at $1.50...I can't wait to open one of those as my rare. I mean, Lord of Extinction is technically passable for a mythic-it's about $12 right now, although that's definitely going to crash hard. At least it isn't Tree of Redemption. Also inb4 Tree of Redemption (or Perdition, I could honestly see them doing either).

    Another day, another Masters set that nobody asked for. This time, with a MSRP of US $13.99 per pack! And if you buy a box (MSRP of US $335ish, although it'll 100% be higher) you get a single super rare masterpiece! How amazing! Honestly though, fuck this set. Modern Masters 1 was honestly amazing, and it's just gone downhill ever since. I thought that MM17 was a step in the right direction, but obviously not.

    So with Guttersnipe and Goblin Electromancer being reprinted, and with the reprint of Wee Dragonauts to take the place of Nivix Cyclops, I can now remake my first ever standard deck-U/R Spellslingers. It's an awful, awful deck, that's also capable of straight up one-shotting someone.

    So...business as usual for Boros then? With the exception of them in GTC draft, Boros was insane then.

    I gotta say, I'm liking surveil a LOT more than I thought I would. I'm starting to genuinely think it's a better scry. Plus, these two are just absolutely nuts. Thinking of making a Lazav EDH deck now.

    Golgari's been crushing it lately in the power department, between Path to Abrupt Decay and new Vraska. But damn, Dimir coming out swinging with the V A L U E
