The wording thing isn't just you. When I was going through the sets for this round of constructed I was like WTF at some of them.

Then there's phasing.  :yuck

I think it's funny that they're going back and digging up old mechanics like time counters...  haha.  Magic R&D lazy maybe?  Also, if we do block decks, can we skip Kamigawa?  I fucking hated all that samurai shit.  That's actually the set I stopped playing on.  I went to the first Kamigawa prerelease, and that was the last tourney I played.

U mad, brah?

It's a veritable toolbox for splashing ANYTHING in ANY deck.  Diabolic Edict? Counterspell? Life Burst?  Accumulated Knowledge? Snap?  Boomerang? I mean, good god, DO I NEED TO GO ON?

And I stand by fuck kamigawa.  Yeah, there were a few good cards, but not even a few good cards can redeem a complete shit set.   :-\

They're basically better than auras. They don't die when the creature they're attached to dies. They just "fall off".

Also I got 2 MI-AL-5th decks ready. If anyone wants to play just shoot me a message on AIM.

Download apprentice or magic work station, it's pretty easy.  tehjaybo and I played a couple of games last night on mws and it went fairly smoothly after I remembered how to play.  It's also FREE and stuff.

Willco, if you play, get MWS.  It's got a really easy deckbuilder in it, and some sweet connection stuff I didn't originally know about. (Thanks Karakand)

3 games to 1 game, he stomped me tonight.

Counter-Mesa is a pretty lame deck. Effective though. Especially now that I have a better idea of its weaknesses.

I tried one of those T2 swans decks since it looked interesting, but I hated control back in the day and it looks like I still don't like it now. Gonna screw around with boatbrew or kithkin, back when I played hardcore (back in the unlimited / revised era) I played a lot of white/red when we played type 2.

Elspeth is insane, it's like a countdown to doomsday when she shows up. I've been screwing around with ALA block stuff and the card seems pretty much indispensible, especially given that you can run path to exile, oblivion ring, and battlegrace angel with white to begin with. White definitely seems a leg up on the other colors in the block.

5cc won... but the white cards are definitely overpowered in the block.  Reveillark anyone?  Blue seems pretty damn overpowered too, tho.  Cryptic command is just sick, and with the faerie stuff still in standard blue seems pretty damn indispensable. 

All of which explains why I've fallen in love with the AIG deck the past couple of days.

rattled off an eight game win streak on mtgo's pauper format  with a three dollar deck :rock

though I sort of won two games because I was using knights of himumumu with protection from black as a casual part of my deck and they had no counter for it

New EvilBore Block Constructed was selected by random number generation this morning. Feel free to veto if you like.

Base set: Mirrodin
Expansions: Exodus, Torment

Note on selection: Starting with Ice Age block and excluding Fifth Edition, I assigned a number to every tournament legal base set (numbered edition and base set of a block) and then I assigned a number to every tournament legal expansion. I then select one base set number and two expansion set numbers at random to create our EBC card pool.

We should try to figure out some kind of prize or something.  Like maybe banning one card from the next block, or picking the base set rather than rolling, or something.  I don't know.

I have a few decks I wanna try. Tonight or tomorrow is good for me.

Some spoilers of the new set have been leaking.



Protip: If your reminder text is that long the mechanic could probably use some work. Especially if it causes you to have to shrink typeface on the last line of the actual rules text.

edit: Triumph you in at all on this? There are some old net decks that are actually kinda viable in this.

edit2: This seems kinda fucked up too.
