A couple things: The capillaries in Day's eyelids show a bit of red from (assuringly) having fun with occasional (or frequent) marijuana use. Also, why is there a language filter? I prefer not to censor "bad" words in my filmmaking and gaming.
sean shouldn't have been so worried about ajani's pridemane because if the card was read more carefully they would have saw that The ability triggers just once for each life-gaining event, whether it’s 1 life from Soulmender or 8 life from Meditation Puzzle.
The link is wrong, this is the correct one: http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=383361 (look at "rulings" below)
WotC has an extensive rulebook establishing definitions for things like this. The rule that "set to a number" is a life gain or loss is rule 118.5: http://mtgsalvation.gamepedia.com/Life
If you're familiar with Hearthstone you may be thinking of something like Alexstrasza which does not count as healing. But...well, this isn't that :) [Also, it's probably meaningful that they call it "life gain" not healing; there is no mathematical/logical distinction between a quantity "becoming" a greater quantity vs "gaining" more quantity.]
Well, yes, but Resolute Archangel's card reads "it becomes equal to your starting life total". So you can see how I interpreted it as not necessarily life gain, but as a reset to a value, in a similar way to Eternity Vessel's wording, but I admit that I might be wrong. And I couldn't get to your link because the website's server is down
+Jw Slifer Incorrect. http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=383361Any change to your life total is either achieved via life gain or life loss; the wording only appears different because the gain or loss is variable. E.g., if you have 19 life, and an opponent uses an ability that sets your life to 10, you lose 9 life.
I used to play this game. Now I hate it. I spent a lot of money on it. To learn that the deck I worked so hard on could no longer be played. So I quit playing. I found it as a money suck. They say you can build a deck without paying a lot of money. Such a lie.
+joshua gilchrist Magic Comprehensive Rules, Section 118. Subsection 5. " If an effect sets a player's life total to a specific number, the player gains or loses the necessary amount of life to end up with the new total." He went from 12 to 20. He gained 8 life. His pridemates pump by +1/+1.
Someone help. I'm under the assumption that when you tap something for convoke, it cannot attack. But around the 10:00 mark... he attacks with Pegasus and then taps it with convoke... Can someone explain what I'm not understanding? I'm new to the game.
+Jacob Thomas Modern doesn't mean the "newest" sets. Modern is anything from 8th edition to now. 8th Edition came out in 2003, so 12 years ago.
What they are playing is essentially Standard. Standard at the moment is just what CrimsonEagle mentioned.
So what Joshua is asking for is cards that go back as far as 8th Edition. It could be cool, but I'm not sure that's what this show is designed to do. This seems to be more of a beginner's/kitchen table sort of show, pretty casual.
+Jacob Thomas While the decks are legal in Modern, the Modern format goes well beyond the sets in which these cards are printed. The Modern format consists of every core set and expert expansion since 8th Edition and the original Mirrodin block. The format gets its name because it only contains cards with the modern card frame (with the exception of the timeshifted cards from Time Spiral block). Also, KTK, FRF, and DTK are in the Khans of Tarkir block, with M15 standing on its own as a core set. All four sets, as well as THS, BNG, and JOU, just happen to all be in Standard now. I hope this clears things up a bit.
I hope you know modern means the newest sets right? So they are playing m15, which is one of the newest sets, besides KOT, DOT, and FRF. Which all happen to be in the m15 block. So they are playing modern.
couple friends of mine just got into EDH by buying the preconstructed commander 2014 decks. i already had a modified Daretti EDH deck that i felt was pretty good....so now....after 2 months straight of them modifying and editing their decks.....i have still used Daretti's -10 EVERY SINGLE GAME......
I love how nobody notices that the Pridemates actually got pumped by the archangel. The turn before, Sean took 6 damage from one of the pridemates, and the next turn when he attacked with it again it was a 7/7 before the Clerics abilities were activated.
