On Set Magic Representative:
Hindsight is indeed 20/20, but I have to comment that she was denied Blue/Black, but later, other guests were granted their own deck colors. I'd like to see her return with the Blue/Black she desired to play. I feel like this would've been a much better match, with each playing their chosen, and more advanced, decks. I also wonder if she plays Commander, it would be cool to see her on Game Knights.
I'm curious about tournament rules. Can you declare you're going to do something at the end of someones turn AFTER they say they end their turn? That would give you knowledge they don't have anything more to play, so instead of saving your mana to potentially retaliate them, you blow it on an instant. Or do you have to declare an action after combat but before they say they end their turn?
DUDE! SEAN! WHY ARE YOU MANA BURNING YOURSELF?! Did you know if a player does not use up all their mana before end of turn they get Mana Burn?
Mana Burn = for each mana you did NOT use, at the end of turn you lose that much life!
um, In order to have casted the Triplicate Spirits, Michelle would need two white mana (which she did) and four, Convoke only reduces colorless mana. So she wouldn't have been able to use Triplicate Spirits and the Sacrifice effect without untapping her mana.
+Cody Hen Sean Plott actually has a pretty decent win loss record on spellslingers. Throughout all his games from season 1 - 3 its pretty back and forth for him,except season 3 he barely ever won there lol
I just plummeted a 9/9 Seraph of the Masses today and it made me think of you guys!
This is still one of my favourite episodes.
I still hope to see Sean against The Professor from the Tolarian Community College channel. I am sure that would be highly entertaining as well.
+moe think you may be a tad confused here, no one in their right mind makes a deck from a single set, what you need to decide is the format you want to play which will dictate which sets you can draw cards from.
It has been 8 or 12 years since I last played magic, but I was pretty sure you took damage for unspent mana. So if you used a Lotus or something for 3 to use a millstone or something with a cost of two, you would burn for one if you didn't have a place to spend that mana.
So in the early game when Day9 taps his land on Esper's turn in response to her doing something, it really seems like her should burn one for the mana.
+Zack Salstrom Generally it would involve a Gaia's Cradle or an artifact that taps for 2 or 3, when you only need one. Through tricks with keys and artifacts, or the Cradle and lots of Green Creatures you generate all this mana to bring out the big creature or powerful spell, and then have to find a place to spend the remaining mana to avoid mana burn.
Why does Day tap mana for no reason is anyone's guess.
I kind of want to build a green elf deck with cradles, keys and grindstones/millstones. They were always a great place to spend extra mana.
