    I'm bored - let's discuss COVID

    You make a good point. To be honest, it seems like both parties have run out of new ideas, so they're more like "Wait! They said something? Well, we're against that!!!"

    I'm bored - let's discuss COVID

    We're about two years into the pandemic and things don't seem to be getting better- at least not in the world of politics. On one side you have people advising everyone to get vaccinated and imposing mandates on use of masks and required vaxes. On the other side, you have people saying that...

    To those that recently were on the MTG Arena Forums...

    WELCOME! Things have been a little slow lately, but if you have anything (and I mean anything) to say, jump in. Find an old thread and say something. Have fun!

    New to the forums, not new to magic.

    Glad you could make it! You appear to be the first (and only) "refugee" from the MTGA Forums, but I'm happy that someone made it...

    Magic Arena Forums Going Bye Bye

    I was just doing my daily look at the forums for Arena and the first post I saw stated that they're being closed permanently and replaced with a Discord channel. Yeah, an open chat feature is a perfect replacement for an open discussion message board...I'd advertise the CPA there, but that's...

    The war is over!

    Shocker - but, to be fair, quite a few were released/traded by Obama... there's blood on lots of hands...

    The war is over!

    Trust me on this one: they were there - just like most of the WMD's from Iraq were in Syria. This is all declassified information, but it helps that I knew people that were actually there and had access to that intelligence...

    The war is over!

    It doesn't surprise me that the Taliban was still around after all of this - when you have an entire country (Pakistan) to hide in, it's easy to "just show up" after most of the American troops have left... Every President going back to Obama claimed to have an exit plan to leave Afghanistan...

    The war is over!

    (wow. I forgot that I started this thread. I am so old) It's kind of sad that the same media that has been complaining to all of our Presidents to end the war in Afghanistan are now attacking President Biden for doing exactly what they've been whining about for nearly 20 years. Someone needs to...

    The Comboist Manifesto: Looking Back at Fame and Shame [Article]

    I remember a contest on one of the sites that originally sponsored the CPA back in '99 that actually wanted people to come up with a "good" use for Sorrow's Path. I tried to create something, but Sixth Edition rules made it moot...

    The Comboist Manifesto: Looking Back at Fame and Shame [Article]

    Oh, there was some colored mana in it it - Blue, I think. Combined with Candelabra of Tanos, and Braingeyser, people hated me :)

    The Comboist Manifesto: Looking Back at Fame and Shame [Article]

    Maze of Ith was probably my favorite rare from The Dark - Sorrow's Path was probably my second one strictly because it was just so insanely wrong...

    The Comboist Manifesto: Looking Back at Fame and Shame [Article]

    Actually, I had a set of Urza's lands and built a whole deck around them. It was a pain to get going, but was often overlooked during multiplayer games because it was so ridiculously bad - and then when I had the full set in play, it got nasty fast! :)

    Tribal Update Report: Adventures in the Forgotten Realms

    I've had some success with Goblin tribal (especially with the pack attack mechanic) and find that even after September's rotation that my favourite little red guys will still be a threat to be reckoned with...

    Happy 4th everyone!

    Ironically, down in Florida, they're not legal where I live, but that doesn't stop my idiot neighbors from setting them off - of course, pending tropical storms do...
