Ok so I saw the thing everyone pointed out with the Stormtide Leviathan but I think Sean should've lost the game earlier anyway. Now I'm not entirely sure but at 16:50 shouldn't the 4 damage from the giant have happened at the same time as the lifelink which would mean he would hit 0 before he gained the 7 life?
Cards like Stormtide Leviathan are why I quit Magic and won't go back. It's just an OP "I win" button that requires literally zero strategy - which is a super-boring way to play a competitive card game. :P
Break Monster did say Ob Nixilis, not the rhino. But yes, they are wrong (It doesn't have anything to do with lifelink being a static effect, though). Ranger's Guile can't target an opponent's creature anyways, but even if it could, it wouldn't prevent the lifelink from happening, because hexproof only cares about the controller of the creature, not the one who gives it. Sean is the controller of Ob Nixilis, so giving it hexproof would only prevent Jovenshire from targeting it.
That Leviathan IS epic. I mean, with 20 life, 8 is almost HALF of your life. But, besides that--saying that only islandwalkers or fliers can attack, and then giving Leviathan islandwalk, and then making all lands Islands? Whoever made this card must've missed their cup of coffee that morning...
From an analytical view, Joshua actually should have won on the turn the rhino traded with ob nixilis.
Instead of targeting the rhino with ranger's guild, if he used it on ob nix in response to lifelink, hexproof would have fizzled the lifelinking ability and Sean would not have gained life. Sean had to use lifelink first because lethal was on the board.
Always more magic lessons to be learned. ;)
Lets just read the card - Target creature you control gets +1/+1 and gains Hexproof until end of turn. (Hexproof: Permanent with Hexproof cannot be the target of spells your opponent controls.) The read the card error from Starfury was that he thought it was Target creature etc... instead of Target creature you control etc... So while useful to know exactly what hexproof allows, it is sort of pointless info that does not effect the decision making during that turn.
I can't decide what my all time favorite demon is, but at the top of the list is Rune-Scarred Demon, Demon of Death's Gate, Desecration Demon and Rakdos, Lord of Riots. Rakdos is extra nasty when comboed with Pandemonium and colorless creatures. He's especially fun with Thought-Knot Seer.
Yeah, Ormendahl and Griselbrand are on my list too, but I haven't brewed with either of them yet, I've only drafted with Westvale Abbey so far but my build wasn't great so I couldn't get him to flip. They aren't far behind though.
