    I totally expected some serious Trump talk here, LOL!!!

    I think Tabletop Simulator gets nice once you get vr goggles. That'd work in the office, right? Also, hi KJ, I recall some of tourney posts. Something with pro points, right?

    History is repeating itself

    What forum are you talking about? I started with Arena a few months ago, mainly to see if it was a way to teach my 7 year old how to play the lovely game of Magic. While the chat in MTGO could be toxic, in Arena there's so little interaction it gets boring fast. YMMV. About casual vs...

    Oversoul is a bit preoccupied for now...

    Good luck with your new house. Buying one can be a huge time drain, don't get stressed.

    Oh, good for you!

    The Wall

    I just read it'll take years. Poor spidey.

    The Wall

    By which you basically prove building a wall doesn't solve the problem. Or you should build a wall around Miami as well. Considering the expected sea level increase that might not be a bad idea...

    Masters sets

    How kind of Wizards. No, everybody outside Northern America gets the shaft, no Hasbro store here. So no Mythic edition either.

    Masters sets

    What fiasco? I've been a fan of the gameday frame for a while. Closer inspection of some of the art tempered my enthusiasm though: no extended art, but blown up. Like it appeared to you. Or maybe the regular art is cropped but it is the same picture. This might be for some cards or for all, I...

    Masters sets

    The Game Day frame they use for the box toppers make for some very pretty cards though.

    Happy (early) New Year!

    Very nice! Bonus points for using only cards with the proper card frame.

    Happy (early) New Year!

    Early or late, right? Happy new year (which is what I made my EDH decks spell out in Dutch) :

    50 Games To Play At Work

    Every time someone clicks on a dead URL a kitten dies. More on topic: I like to play the "work" game at work.

    What are your top 5 most memorable cards?

    The first three are easy. Survival of the Fittest Recurring Nightmare Hymn to Tourach RecSur is special to me. This was the deck that motivated me to look beyond the kitchen table. Hymn is probably the card that gave me the most fun playing it: the fear in the eyes, the minigame of trying to...

    Magic Memories: Rootwater Matriarch

    The thing with Ramses is that he has a high CMC and is very situational. You need a good number of aura's to make him work to begin with, so a card that can benefit from those aura's is likely better than Ramses. I'm using the aura's to trigger Willbreaker or Agent of the Fates nowadays.

    Magic Memories: Rootwater Matriarch

    I have a Ramses Overdark EDH deck where I used this card. I wrote something about that deck here http://mtgcommander.net/Forum/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=17769

    Potential New Format

    At the time Wizards didn't have the habit of printing overpriced cards (discounting Chronicles, which didn't work out that well). I sold my playset of goyfs before Modern Masters, thinking they couldn't possibly be worth more after reprinting. Apparently I have no idea how the secondary market...

    Magic Memories: Wheel of Fortune

    I love Wheel. But eighty bucks? I had to verify that, but you're correct. Crazy. I never play my beat up copy, but this one has been through a lot.

    Magic Memories: Academy Rector

    I had no idea what Sandwurm Convergence was, so I had to look that up. It looks like a better Moat, with a worse CMC. I might include that in my Naya EDH deck... together with that Rector. I have Starfield of Nyx in that deck. Regarding buyouts: non-RL cards from later sets are worth more...
