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.

I can’t wait for people to try and respond to morph creatures

I’m gonna be the one at my lgs trying to teach people how morph works and I think it might not go well oh noooooooo

Yeah, I might have to print a poster with the morph rules on it for the duration of Khans in Standard.

The game is about to change.

I’m not sure what is actually going on here. 
What was stopping us from using planeswalkers as commanders before?
And why does putting the rules text on the card suddenly make it okay?
It’s also weird because Wizards traditionally leaves the rules to the community, but here they’re basically forcing the EDH rules to either adapt to include planeswalkers as commanders or just ban cards with this kind of rules text.
For the record, I’m okay with the change, and I’ve been wanting planeswalker commanders for a long time. This Teferi is pretty sweet too. I look forward to seeing how this trend continues.

Commander’s rules aren’t changing to allow planeswalkers to be commanders at all, that would break the format in half. Making planeswalkers specifically to be commanders works though, because card text comes before format rules.

Right, I hadn’t thought about that. I look forward to seeing how Wizards explores that design space then. If they’re balancing specific planeswalkers for the format it should be pretty cool.

Am I the only one that sees that FNM is full of pro players, like 9 out of 12 players, playing decks that are going to be contenders in pro league play, making someone who likes to play for fun and only somewhat slightly competitive un able to have fun. I can only face the “I…

I advocate talking to shop owners about starting pauper leagues. That way at least the cost of the cards becomes less of a factor.

Question reblogged from Blogatog with 23 notes

ixe8 said: The Chain Veil is a bit of a flavor fail for me since it hurts you when you don't use it on Planeswalkers but it hurts Liliana when she does use it in the story. Was the design better for gameplay this way?

markrosewater:

I’m not sure an artifact that’s better if you don’t use it leads to compelling game play. : )

Couldn’t it be better to use it even though it does hurt you? Like paying life to draw cards. Getting an extra ‘walker activation is worth a bit of life to use.

Rouge Deck Disapeared →

wizadrspls:

Hello everyone.

Last Saturday the 19th of July 2014, after attending a Legacy tournament near Madrid, Spain, I noticed that the deck box was missing from my backpack.

I’ve been playing the deck for five rounds, and the backpack was sealed while I opened it at home to grab the cards. So it never…

Question reblogged from MTG Talk with 38 notes

halbbart said: If my opponent plays Mono-Green, and turns a forest into an elemental creature in one of the many ways Green is capable of doing that, and i use Eradicate on one of his Forest-named Elementals, do i exile all of his Forests from his Hand, Graveyard and Library?

mtg-talk:

If you manage to turn a land (such as a Forest or Stalking Stones) into a creature, you can indeed use this effect on that basic land type. Eradicate’s exile effect only looks for cards by name, not type.

Yep. If a forest is turned into a creature, you can exile the rest of the cards named Forest that he has.

Of course, he’ll still have some on the field, but who cares?

A fanart poster for Magic: the Gathering! Been working on this for the past couple of days - now I can get to doing other stuff!

Love this

That’s definitely Zendikar and Em in the background/outside the window…no wonder Tibalt looks sad

Godsend, sensei’s divining top, the five original moxen, umezawa’s jitte, and Thran dynamo are in the background

And soulring and spellbook :)

That’s actually Venser’s journal! But you’re right about sol ring :)

There is also a Perilous Vault looking artifact behind Tibalt, I think anyway

That’d be a Hedron. A “tablet of the guilds” tapestry also hangs on the wall. So many cool things

Liliana is also holding The Chain Veil, if I’m seeing that correctly.
