I assumed XMage but wanted to make sure before I committed to anything. Also haven't your heard? IRC is dead.

That said I'll have to hold off. I didn't notice the start date is this Sunday and unfortunately I'll still be away on work-related travel. Next time!

The magnificent story of Dwayt al-Shrood.


Is this viable for euro timezones? I'm terrible at magic and will likely end up playing squirrels...

It's obvious that this man and I share the same destiny. Therefore I must join forces with him! Besides, I'll save on gas money if I take him with me.

PSA: make sure you boot up and update XMage as much as you need to. Last time we had a lot of instances - myself included - where we had to wait 30 minutes or so before we could actually play.

Last time we had a thunderdome basically people were paired up and had a week to find a time for a match. With an entire week you should be able to arrange something

2-1 for Jobert - Sideboard saved me in games 2 and 3 after getting locked out in Game 1. I won't spoil any of TheShortestPath's spicy tech, but I definitely had to read some of those cards!

Once the servers started cooperating, Madtrixr bested me 2-0. Pro tip: apparently you can Red Elemental Blast an opponent's Illusions of Grandeur before the lifegain to have them straight up lose 20 instead, which is great if they have no FoW ready.

Yeah I thought I hosed up but turns out Illusions lifegain is a trigger that can be responded to with it on the field so I figured what the hell why not and yeah it worked out.

The more you know I guess.

NEVER FUCKING TAKE A NIGHT OFF CLAN WARS.


Elyv won the whole thing, and won something from Black Potus, but also won a Masters Edition pack on MTGO from me. They don't play MTGO though, so I opened it.



This is actually insanely above average for a MED pack, both draftwise and valuewise.
