    Edit: the person who made this responded and said they were updating it. We did it Reddit!

    Also, Xenagos and Elspeth need to be listed as the same status. There were both killed by the same weapon, were they not? If one of them is unreturnably dead, then the other definitely is, too.

    Okay so if I don't play with Mike, and we follow this flow chart to a T, I think the correct strategy is to mull to 0 and pray we go last assuming eldrazi are house banned No one will be casting spells so everyone will deck out. If eldrazi are legal the game has no solution and it would be an infinite loop and unending game.

    What happens if you play in a pod of 4 mikes?

    My games last week made me think of this scenario.You're Player A.

    If nobody kills Player D he is likely to win his next turn.

    You can team up with Player B to kill Player D, but Player C will kill you and Player B on his turn.

    Do you kill Player D? If his winning isn't a sure thing, but just likely, do you kill him?

    I agree, this is one of the things I don't like about commander. People will just blow up your creature because it had the highest P/T even if you were not attacking... meanwhile the player winning is playing these subtle value creatures and combos off.

  • Dresari23
    2 points Aug 16,2018, 4:31pm

    This reminds me of my high school group. It was a few guys the same age plus one younger kid named Eric, so naturally the rest of us all ganged up on him. It got to the point that when we cast a spell, we would read "target player", "target creature", "target spell" etc. as "target Eric", as in "lightning bolt deals 3 damage to target Eric". It quickly became his nickname as well

    One time I had two lands and no creatures in a multiplayer game on like turn 5. There was a new kid playing with us, and he had the ability to do about fifteen damage and was like, "who should I attack."

    The rest of them were like "attack TK."

    I was like "what? I'm not the threat! I have nothing! Whyyy??"

    "Attack him. Kill him now. Do it."

    "You guys ..."

    "Trust us."

    ... he killed me, and it was a good thing, too, because the next turn I was going to take all four of them out.

  • VERTIKAL19

    A reputation is a dangerous thing.

    Yeah, it sucks to be perma-locked out of games. It's especially bad in groups where one player gets stronger/better/ahead in the arms race, wins a bunch and gets beaten down even after the other players catch up in power level.

    I find people can be so bad at threat assessment. The group I played with last week teamed up to take me out 2 games in a row. Ok sure, I had a 30/30 Multani and [[Vigor]] out, but to be fair one of the guys was playing [[Krenko, Mob Boss]]. (He was on 3 lands for like 10 turn and ended up winning.)

    And ok sure, the 2nd game I was playing Locust God and 2 turns after a board wipe had 30 locusts, and was going to win next turn... ok maybe that one was justified.

    I don't get it. Are they actually bad, and you're the threat they keep missing, so you made this chart to help them correctly threat assess you?

    Or are you making a joke about how bad they are at assessing threats, and how they incorrectly and unfairly target you the majority of the time?

    If the first, well that's quite benevolent of you. If the second, why would they need a flowchart to help them do what they're already doing?

    Am I dumb for overthinking this?

    On first glance I was thinking that this would be overly technical and something that would go above my head, but wow, and I thought I was bad at threat assessment. People use graveyard hate when there's nothing to hate?

  • JimWolfie

    Okay so if I don't play with Mike, and we follow this flow chart to a T, I think the correct strategy is to mull to 0 and pray we go last assuming eldrazi are house banned No one will be casting spells so everyone will deck out. If eldrazi are legal the game has no solution and it would be an infinite loop and unending game.

    My games last week made me think of this scenario.You're Player A.

    If nobody kills Player D he is likely to win his next turn.

    You can team up with Player B to kill Player D, but Player C will kill you and Player B on his turn.

    Do you kill Player D? If his winning isn't a sure thing, but just likely, do you kill him?

    I agree, this is one of the things I don't like about commander. People will just blow up your creature because it had the highest P/T even if you were not attacking... meanwhile the player winning is playing these subtle value creatures and combos off.

  • Dresari23
    2 points Aug 16,2018, 4:31pm

    This reminds me of my high school group. It was a few guys the same age plus one younger kid named Eric, so naturally the rest of us all ganged up on him. It got to the point that when we cast a spell, we would read "target player", "target creature", "target spell" etc. as "target Eric", as in "lightning bolt deals 3 damage to target Eric". It quickly became his nickname as well

    One time I had two lands and no creatures in a multiplayer game on like turn 5. There was a new kid playing with us, and he had the ability to do about fifteen damage and was like, "who should I attack."

    The rest of them were like "attack TK."

    I was like "what? I'm not the threat! I have nothing! Whyyy??"

    "Attack him. Kill him now. Do it."

    "You guys ..."

    "Trust us."

    ... he killed me, and it was a good thing, too, because the next turn I was going to take all four of them out.

  • VERTIKAL19

    I find people can be so bad at threat assessment. The group I played with last week teamed up to take me out 2 games in a row. Ok sure, I had a 30/30 Multani and [[Vigor]] out, but to be fair one of the guys was playing [[Krenko, Mob Boss]]. (He was on 3 lands for like 10 turn and ended up winning.)

    And ok sure, the 2nd game I was playing Locust God and 2 turns after a board wipe had 30 locusts, and was going to win next turn... ok maybe that one was justified.

    The truth is Brawl needed this kind of support early on if it was going to do anything. It's still mixed 1v1/Multiplayer which is confusing to people, and it doesn't have the user base to survive rotation IMHO.

    It's amazing to me the support wotc gives a dead-on-arrival format while basically ignoring a format like pauper.

    I see you in here addressing criticism and negative comments. And good for you, not shirking away from criticism.

    That being said, don't let the few negative voices drown out the cacophony of support you receive. Most of us love what you do and what you bring to the community. And most of us appreciate that you're willing to poke fun or be critical of the game when needed, while still being overall positive. The community needs people like that.

    It's good to reflect on criticisms and not completely disregard them, but don't let your critics define you. You are a boon to magic and it's always a pleasure to listen to your input, even if I don't always agree.

    Honestly, I wasn't trying to fire shots, I was just trying to make a joke based on how someone recently won a Brawl tournament by being the only person to sign up.

    Apparently it came across as complaining rather than funny. I'll have to be more aware of that in the future.

    The truth is Brawl needed this kind of support early on if it was going to do anything. It's still mixed 1v1/Multiplayer which is confusing to people, and it doesn't have the user base to survive rotation IMHO.

  • fuckyoulucasarts

    It's amazing to me the support wotc gives a dead-on-arrival format while basically ignoring a format like pauper.

    The main complaint from new players is the cost of the game/roration and yet they ignore the cheapest eternal format that keeps people playing. Amazing.

    Problems like this are likely to be unstoppable as long as Wizards does not implement two-factor authentication. That means when you log into MODO, you enter your password plus either a PIN sent to your phone by Wizards, or use a special token with a constantly changing value.

    Right now, a bad guy needs to get your password to log into MODO as you. This can happen by a number of means. But with two-factor authentication, the bad guy needs to get both your Password and your second factor.

    In the mean time, use a good password and don't use your MODO password anywhere else! My recommendations for a good password: At least 12 characters, at least 3 character classes (upper, lower, digit, symbol), and start and end with lowercase letters.

  • Will_Forkafeller
    1 points Aug 10,2018, 11:43pm

    Ive never had a specific set for myself. A big fan of Shandalar which was mostly in the coresets. But I'd LOVE to get one of these with the white mana symbol.

  • Free-roamingWhale
    1 points Aug 11,2018, 3:26am

    Oh wow, these are beautiful. Generally speaking, out of these blocks, I like Innistrad 2.0 the most, but Ixalan-block grew on me immensely because I love RIX. Guess I'd take the Ixalan one.

    It's basically the same as with Amonkhet-block for me; two more or less severely flawed draft-formats (AKH and XLN) salvaged by great followups. That makes me torn on whether I like two-set-blocks or not; when both sets are good (Innistrad), it's tremendous fun for a long time. When the latter one is great, basically the bad taste of the first one is mostly or completely eradicated (RIX, HOU)...

  • Axtdool
    1 points Aug 11,2018, 4:24am

    Well nostalgia wise it would probably be OG ravnica where I cracked my first Packs.

    I think for me it's:

    Future Sight + Planar Chaos > Shadowmoor block > Innistrad block > Return to Ravnica Block > Almost everything else > artifact blocks > Battle for Zendikar.

    and insert Battlebond and Conspiracy blocks before shadowmoor if you include never standard blocks.

    Thanks for the support guys and gals, I didn't get a chance to do a short write up before I logged off for the night so I'd like to do one now.

    I'm an independent goldsmith in Toronto and wanted to make some cool stuff with glow in the dark pigments. I also love MtG so I thought I would use it as a testing ground if you will for future applications. These pendants are actually double sided for the 2 set blocks with the other set in a different color on the reverse. I started with the 2 set blocks just for ease of integration, but I can make them in any set combination. I can also do the Ravnica guild signets (which are next on my list), and the Tarkir clan insignias. The symbols can be anything, really.

    I wanted to reach out to y'all to see how much you would pay for something like this because I wanted to make this accessible to MtG fans and people who want something fun and custom. I understand that MtG is already expensive but for something like this I hope you all can understand that ~$20 will barely cover the material cost let alone the labour involved in making these. These pendants, now and in the future, are handmade by me (or a local Toronto goldsmith should I decide to hire additional help). I expect to be pricing these around $160 but I'm still figuring out how much exactly.

    EDIT: Here's an album with both sides!

    If you didn't make it out of rares, then are they truly the king?!

    We use any one of our buddy’s daughter’s toy princess tiaras.

    Edit: It’s sometimes paired with a scepter that we flourish dramatically when targeting permanents or drawing for the monarch trigger.

    I bought a very sparkly princess tiara with fake diamonds to use as a monarch token, and it provides me no end of amusement seeing it get passed around a game.

    I'm so glad people are still using the monarch crowns.

    When Monarch first showed up in my playgroup.. We didn't have a token (still don't,) so we ended up using an empty Top Loader to signify it.. 'xD

    Every time I see the Monarch token, I can't help but point out the missing word.

    This time is no exception.

    Nonetheless, great crown. I love seeing 3D representations of Magic things :-)

    This was a quick crafting project I made tonight after doing a conspiracy: take the crown draft at my LGS. I'm excited to use (wear) this token in game.

    The release draft events came with cadboard crowns to put on the monarch's head. I put mine in the bin last week 'cause it was taking space but I was half-hoping to draft it with pals and use it then.

    can someone please explain where this came from, and if this is a general optional rule in MtG or if is based on specific cards being played?
