7:10 why did LSV bounce the Cyclops at the end of the turn and not before damage? Didn't he just lose 3 life?

Been playing Magic since '96 and I still have no idea what people are talking about when they start saying stuff...
Jahi Palmer (5 days ago)
Actually, watching these videos is helping me learn the lingo so that at FNM I'm not all like "I don't know what you mean by 'control,' but yes I am countering your spell..."

All the colors follow typical mage types. White is the clerics. Black are the necromancers. Blue are the typical mages. Green are summoners. And red are the warlocks.

Awesome game, guys ! I barely know how to play MTG, and even more so the cards in these 2 decks, but the game waz amazing !

LSV is either the most personable MTG plyr of all time or he's holding back the shitty neck beard pre-teen at all times, I can't tell, he's on the edge...

Prophet of kruphix is banned in every format isn’t it?
Chad Small (3 months ago)
As a long time MTG player, I feel like what Luis did to Sean's hydra when he cast Griptide was incredibly rude. It's one of my pet peeves in Magic. Don't cast your spell and move my cards for me. He cast Griptide, and before Sean had time to learn what the spell did or what was happening, Luis slipped his Griptide under Sean's hydra and rapidly flicked it away so it flew over to the side of the table. General rule of thumb of a fun MTG environment: don't move your opponent's cards for them without their permission. You're allowed to look at their cards to learn what they do, but not physically remove their cards for them. Bad form.
my body is ready!

I play will fury.
Tony N (4 months ago)
Why would you bounce a creature after letting it hit you? If you're going to bounce it at end of his turn, why wouldn't he bounce it during the combat step? That seemed like a derpy play.
88Hyo (4 months ago)
That was a fucking clutch game.
My2Cents (4 months ago)
19:22 LSV put his bestowed creature in the graveyard instead of putting it back on the battlefield when it died. This misplay lost him the game. Or he was nice enough to misplay and give Sean the win not sure which one.

7:24 Why not play that card before damage was dealt? You could have had the same effect and saved 3 life in the process
GamingXMachina (4 months ago)
That moment that you see this years after the game is done, and he doesnt even use prophet of kruphix that allows him to untap and flash on opponents turns lol.
Guy Named Dom (4 months ago)
He could've prevented the 3 damage from the 3/3 by using the bounce instant in the combat phase
Vaasth (4 months ago)
couldn't he bounced the hydra after the draw for turn? or maybe in reaction of monstrosity?
James Taylor (5 months ago)
Why let the ill tempered cyclops deal damage to you? I get you don't need to preserve every point of life but if you're going to bounce it any way why not bounce pre-damage step?
Rémy Boivin (4 months ago)
Because he wanted to see if he casted something else before bouncing back. This guy isn't a pro for no reasons. He knows these details.
James Taylor (5 months ago)
Rip spellslingers. Something's are just to good for this world.

That fate deck needed some 5+ power to even the odds against the hydra and better counter blue cards like cancel

So a creature that has a when come into play ability can't be countered or is the ability that can't be countered?
Justus Bacon (11 months ago)
the first time i watched other people play in a video, that i enjoyed. in these protours and streams all i see is cards for ants where i cant even see the artwork and have no idea whats happening, no audio either so just a blurry mess which noone who doesnt follow this format for many years can understand.

Bounced the attacker after taking damage?
hdriscoll21 (1 year ago)
Personally, I'd go with the Fury deck but that's just me. I generally prefer aggressive decks to control, and Shaun's mana mojo where he got 17 mana was awesome. I know that probably would not happen to me, but it'd be awesome if it did

I miss this show :/
Xaldun (1 year ago)
Problem was, Sean should not have been able to monstrosity again with the same hydra the second time. Monstrosity is once per game, per unique card. Since that hydra was the same hydra that was returned to his deck that he drew, the monstrosity would not be possible. Took me a while to catch that!

lol LSV forgot he wasn't playing a ProTour player and just assumed Sean would pick up on the "good scry" bluff xD Normal players would just keep attacking

so it's infinite mana you want... try investing in a Mox Lotus from the Unhinged set.
RyanBradley (1 year ago)
why didnt lsv just untap the 3 power card that sean couldnt block with his 2 cards that untapped it, and then win a long time earlier???
Ryan Adams (1 year ago)
Correct me if I'm wrong but couldn't Luis have won if he attacked with the flyer untapped with the other guy and attacked again Sean would have been at 0
Ziggy Poland (1 year ago)
You can't attack twice a turn. I doesn't matter if your creature is tapped or untapped, if it already attacked that turn, it can't attack again. c:
timlamiam (1 year ago)
2:14 that's my favourite style of playing mtg lol. in fact i now put on that voice when i get draw cards, scry spells, counterspells etc. because it's so funny.
Murry Witzel (1 year ago)
I always thought that it would be such a privilege to be on this show, until Sean just dropped the bomb that they were playing this at 8 am. That is insane.

matterhorn731 (1 year ago)
At 22:09, couldn't Shawn have generated his mana instantly after Luis declared his blockers, before his devotion went down?
matterhorn731 (1 year ago)
Ah, OK. I knew you couldn't stockpile it between turns (of course), but I wasn't aware that it didn't even persist between steps.
The mana you make is being put into the mana pool. The mana pool empty itself after each step. For example if you generate mana in upkeep steep you have to use it in upkeep or when you proceed to draw the mana will vanish...without any mana burn.

"Oh did you top-deck" haha
SteveAkaGoatpile (1 year ago)
oh hey spoilers down below.... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... you know.... if shawn had just not gone all or nothing all the freaking time.. he totally would have won. just attack with like... 2 or 3 hydras at a time. that still 16 freaking damage, which would have forced him to counterspell.. and then he would have won the turn after. there was absolutely no reason, no fucking reason to go all in. ESPECIALLY SINCE HE´s so paranoid about blue anyway!

What does timewalking mean?
ERIC Frederickson (1 year ago)
Thanks :)
Jamie Schiavona (1 year ago)
In the original power 9 (which is usually regarded as the 9 best and most broken cards in the game) there was a card called time walk, which let you take another turn. Timewalking refers to something happening that is equivalent to you taking another turn. For example, when Luis bounced Sean's ill-tempered cyclops on end step and Sean couldn't cast it again, it set back Sean for a turn, as all Sean got out of 2 turns was 3 damage (which is not that much). So in that scenario, it was like Luis had cast time walk against Sean, without casting time walk. Timewalking refers to these scenarios when you've basically cast time walk.

sean should have attacked with only a few tokens wtf is he stupid

TheWonderMirror (1 year ago)
Exactly my thought, he didnt have to attack with 8, just attack with 3 and whatever the opponent does to them you still have 5 left.
Sam Sprague (1 year ago)
Why would LSV bounce (w/ Voyage's End) Sean's Ill-Tempered Cyclops @ 7:10 after the Cyclops dealt 3 damage to LSV in the combat damage step of the same turn? This makes very little sense to me.
Joseph Ullman (1 year ago)
Sam Sprague, by taking the 3 damage Luis leaves up the option to bounce a better newly played creature that Sean could have played in his main phase two. Also by waiting until the end of turn Sean cannot replay the Cyclops in his main phase two (which he could have done if Luis bounced it to save a measely 3 life). By sacrificing 3 life, Luis gained "tempo", which he defines by effectively removing the Cyclops until at least next turn when at that point he saves 3 life because the Cyclops will be summoning sick and also tying up Sean's mana. Hopefully that made it more clear.
tackywacky99 (1 year ago)
Okay so can someone explain me to at 7:01 why didnt Luis just send the creature back into his hand before he takes damage. Why did he play it at the end of the turn instead?
Peter Steinle (1 year ago)
I believe that Luis was thinking that taking 3 damage would be worth it if Sean played an even more dangerous creature he needed to bounce during the second main phase after combat. It turned out that Sean didn't have a play, so Luis went ahead and targeted the cyclops.
Anthony nifras (1 year ago)
because if he returned it back into Sean's hand before he takes damage, Sean could still cast it at his 2nd main phase because he still has all his lands untapped. Doing it at the end phase was smarter because Sean wont be able to cast it during his end step. (does this help?)

fury was my first ever mtg deck i bought

prophet of kruphix is 'profetable' I see what you did there.
Jeremiah Bachmann (1 year ago)
Noob to Magic here...most of what was going on just went waaaaay over my head. That being said, I'm sure what was being said and therefore explained, will eventually make sense to me. Noticed they are playing with a 2015 deck, but the video was published in the summer of 2014. Question: How often do decks named after the year come out? Is it annual? Where do these decks fit into on being the backbone of the current sets being currently used?
L Lawliet (1 year ago)
Jeremiah Bachmann he said at the outset rust it was a pre-season deck. I'm asking they got these cards ahead of time specifically for this video.
