I was posting a lot of MTG stuff in my personal blog, so I created a separate blog for MTG.


Backround: My first MTG cards were Odyssey cards back in the early 2000s, and I've been playing off and on since then. I'm mostly a casual player, but I hope to play competitively in the future. Feel free to ask me stuff or leave me comments. I'm usually on here every day.

Temur. B)

Jeskai

The first is correct. TEMUR! :D

What do you guys like about Temur? Sincerely curious.

Honestly GU and GR are my favorite color combos, so it’s mainly just my favorite wedge. But I love the deck I’ve got planned out for it, it’s been dominating people online. It’s monsters with good control cards, what’s not to like? Ramp up, drop shit, counter serious answers.

9/10
Would play

I had similar designs for Sultai, but I like Temur for Stormbreath Dragon, Xenagos, and burn spells.

Although, I’m picking Jeskai at prerelease and playing Abzan for Standard, haha.

Been play testing Mardu aggro, and three-color aggro decks are real. And by real, I mean I did 17 damage to myself in one game just from tapping lands. Turns out the Lifelink clause on Butcher of the Hordes is relevant, even as aggro.

There was a guy at my lgs also testing Mardu aggro. I was playing Abzan midrange. The damage he took from Mana Confluence made my job a lot easier haha.

A woman walked in to my local game store and she twisted her face and said “it smells funny in here” and I started laughing
Her friend wispered “shhhh people have ears you know” and I said to her
“No. Speak the truth, the truth of leaning to deodorant before social gatherings”
The moral of the…

I won’t tell anyone that they need to have a specific set of physical characteristics or that they shouldn’t be comfortable with their bodies.

But dang.

There are times when I have to hold my breath at my lgs.

Help me design! This isn’t Magic related, but it’s important to me.

Tomorrow I’m taking part in a street painting festival benefiting foster kids, and the last minute artist I am I’m just now contemplating what to paint. (Typical but it usually works out.)

I’m looking to combine these two images and the quote “Don’t wait; Time won’t wait for you.” In some way.

I’d love to hear your opinions on the matter! And if you live near Elizabethtown Ky come check out Via Colori at the city square!

My suggestion: The clock has an image of the tree on it. The tree goes from healthy to decayed from left to right and the clock goes from pristine to cracked and crumbling.

Question reblogged from thoughtseize with 976 notes

shevatthewindiscalling said: I attended a small standard tourney last night at an LGS with my wife. We unfortunately left after the second round because of the hostilities she was experiencing because of her gender. Do you find on your end you hear much regarding the issues of non-male treatment in Magic? Do you feel it's improving?

markrosewater:

Let me use this question to say something I’ve been wanting to say.

Every time you are unkind to another Magic player, be it in a game, online or through whatever interaction, regardless of your reason, you are hurting the game, you are hurting the community, you are hurting the store you play in, you are hurting the place you gather - most of all, you are hurting other people.  

One of the reasons I love the Magic community is because of the kindness they show one another. Don’t be the person that makes Magic something ugly for someone. You love how the Magic community has opened up for you and made you feel welcome. Well, pass that along. 

Just imagine that every interaction you have with someone new is the interaction you would have wanted when you were new. A lot of people are attracted to gaming because it is somewhere they feel welcome when there are many other places they do not. Please, please, please do not take that away from people.

Be an ambassador of the game.

Be someone who makes others’ lives better rather than worse.

Be the better person.

Magic: the Gathering - 2014 Holiday Gift Box

I’ve picked up the last two gift boxes (Return to Ravinca and Theros) and will say I’m impressed although we will complain that the last one, Theros, we thought the illustrated plastic dividers were not as nice as the previous.

This sturdy box holds 2,000+ cards and is available at your local games store for an MSRP of about $20.  Here’s what you get :

• Four Khans of Tarkir booster packs
• Beautiful storage box that can hold more than 2,000 Magic cards
• Twenty Khans of Tarkir basic lands
• Six illustrated plastic dividers
• Sticker sheet for customizing the dividers
• An alternative-art Sultai Charm from the Khans of Tarkir set

Original Sultai Charm card art illustrated by Mathias Kollros with the new alternate art illustrated by Ryan Lee.

AWWWW YEEAAHH. I’m glad they’re making one these for every fall set. I’ve got both the Theros and RTR ones. The boxes are great for storage.

Outlast + giving death touch seems good.

mtgthings:

I have this idea that my fellow magic: the gathering enthusiasts can do here on tumblr or any other blogging site; and this idea is called the Daily Random Cards.


So how does this work? Well, you simply go to the Gatherer’s page, scroll down and click on this view card button - where…
