Archenemy: Nicol Bolas (Oversoul) vs Gatewatch (Spidey, Melkor, rokapoke)

Discussion in 'Games Run By CPA Members' started by Spiderman, Jul 25, 2017.

  1. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Proceeding to Declare Blockers?
  2. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Yes. We do not block.
  3. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    So each of you takes 3 damage?
  4. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

  5. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    +3 Nicol Bolas to get rid of Melkor's sword. That thing could poke someone's eye out.

    Done.

    I assume that means no responses to the Zendikon.

    Ew. A land? I can't do anything about that! I guess my Strix can't block.
  16. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Just giving the chance since it went on the stack :)

    Declare Attack. Responses?
  17. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Uh, I didn't think I even got priority at this point. :confused:
  18. rokapoke Man Among Gods

    Sure, because there's always that last opportunity to tap creatures before they could attack. Maybe it's at the end of the first main phase?

    I'm now realizing that I probably haven't consulted the actual rules of Magic since I was in college. So we're talking 15ish years... ouch, I'm old!
  19. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Or wait, it occurs to me now that you could also mean to ask if I have responses before moving to the Declare Attackers step, rather than during the Declare Attackers step but before you've actually declared any attackers. I initially thought that you were saying you were already in Declare Attackers but were freezing it to ask about responses before actually declaring the attackers, which I thought I couldn't do even if I wanted to.

    Either way, no responses. Presumably something is going to attack me and/or other me.
  20. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    LOL. Things would have been made clearer (perhaps) if I said "Declare Combat". Your post above describes my intent though, to allow you any last responses before moving to the Combat Phase (I think that's what it's called).

    So now we will actually Declare Attackers as everyone who's able except the Anointer; the Forest which is Zendikon'd, Thragtusk, Pathmaker, and Vizier. I'm sure there's an actual technical way to do/say/express this but the intent is that they are all attacking Nicol Bolas.

    Responses/blocks/take it?
