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.

Question reblogged from Blogatog with 18 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 37 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.

Grand Prix: Los Angeles →

commandollar:

So, everybody’s least favorite West Coast “journalist” is a confirmed attendee for the Grand Prix down in the city of angels! I will probably not be playing in the main event (Standard), but I plan to play in lots of those $5 Commander pods.

I will be there at least all day…

I’d be interested in some deck techs. Just photos of the decks laid out with a few comments from the players about card inclusion and strategy.

So yesterday one of my very good friends, jacejosujura, got severely harrassed over instagram. The guy did a lot of shit, including sending her inappropriate pictures, calling her names and telling her to kill herself- but it all stemmed from her owning jace cards. That should be no fucking reason to mock a person. If I had more internet clout I would start a campaign of people taking pictures with their jace cards/ collections in protest of this asshole, but I really don’t. So you’ll just have to settle with just me. There is nothing wrong with having jace cards. Toss off.

Wow that’s really fucked up. I don’t own any Jaces but you guys totally should!

I don’t own any Jaces either, but let’s spread the word! Anyone got a place we can contact this jerkwad?

He must’ve been around for caw-blade and seeing that Mind Sculptor tiggered him to go full tilt.

I want jacejosujura to gain a ginormous collection of Jaces.
Pages and pages of them, all over the walls.
Stack Jace to the ceiling.
Just so that guy’s head explodes.


Petition for players to send her their jaces?

I’m on board. I’ve got Architect of Thought in both normal and Duel Deck versions, as well as the Living Guildpact I pulled at prerelease. I don’t particularly need any of them. If we can get a room covered in Jaces I’d be happy to send them out.

My box of M15 Came! →

mtg-talk:

Now the real question is how many packs I should open. It feels like a waste to open them all without doing anything with most of them, so I want to save some behind for drafting.

I think I’m going to use this box as the start of a “draft pool” of packs. The idea (which I got off the internet) is…

This sounds like a great idea!
