I have tried with an intro deck to have the lead but lost because when i needed anything but land the only thing my deck seemed to was bloody land... I'm talking about 10+ rounds! where i pulled and played land, after i counted how much land there was left.... 1 i had played ALL my land except 1! now that is anoying
Jesse's game is a big reason (besides the price tag) why I don't bother with M:tG anymore - Land screw/flood feels bad and there's nothing you can do about it. If I'm gonna lose, I want it to be because of strategy, not because of random chance.
So thanks new L5R for solving the resource problem and letting me play cards instead of drown in unnecessary lands. ;D
The most I've gotten manna screwed was in a game, I was using a burn deck against a mono white creature token deck. I wasn't getting manna screwed, I was getting manna raped and my opponent was getting manna screwed. I drew 20 out of my 24 lands, and I drew one creature and a few spells. I lost that game surprisingly enough.
Oh yeah, there is no luck in Magic! Twenty land cards in a row? Is there a Magic player anywhere who ever won a game when they got twenty lands in a row? Of course, some moron will now insist, "Oh no, there's no luck in magic. It's like skill, man."
I have already liked this when this was posted to ALL online MTG fans.,, please re-issue your annotations. There were not enough "Donators" to continue this series yet I donated to geek & sundry everytime an episode of spell slingers was released.
Well go figure. I love something new and it gets taken away.
What about the paper. F king Newspaper. I give my grandson access to the new media and that gets taken away from me too... I am glad mobile devices can voice talk in post or i would be screwed with auto correct
So, after watching this again, I realized that Jesse didn't know how mana costs worked. He could have played that Stonehorn Chanter on his next turn because he had a plain and a land to play on the following turn which would have gave him 6 land. So, I'm betting he probably thought that the symbol and the number meant that he needed that many lands vs just needing a land of that type and whatever else for rest. Not that it would have made a difference in this game since the deck he had sucked and he got land flooded, but someone probably should have explained the rules a bit better to him.
