    Dude - you actually have a D20 at hand? :)

    I used Excel to come up with... a 4

    Formula for those like me - =round(rand()*19+1,0)

    That will give you a random # from 1-20

    I used a random number generator. :p

    I talked to Al0ysiusHWWW just now. He had to leave for work, but he said that he's totally up for this, so that's an 8th person.

    Apprentice has a "Roll a Die" option, but I am doing it the old-fashioned way because icosahedrons are awesome...

    18.
  6. DarthFerret Evil Sith Weasel

    Thanks Oversoul, I used Apprentice to roll for me, and after figuring out where it actually tells me what I rolled (I dont use apprentice to play online, so never look at the text box), I ended up with 19.

    You sound extremely excited to play this. I wonder if Oversoul is doing any arm-twisting. ;)

    Sorry guys, my wife had to go into the hospital on Monday so I left early and took off Tuesday and Wednesday so she could recover a bit.

    I have actual dice because of the D&D game, so I rolled a 20 (honest!)
  15. BigBlue Magic Jones

    Modus Pwnens - 2
    BigBlue - 4
    Melkor - 7
    Ransac - 12
    Al0ysiusHWWW - 13
    Oversoul - 18
    DarthFerret -19
    Spiderman - 20

    If I read Ransac's intentions properly... here is the order for picking sets.

    Standalone 1: Modus
    Expansion 1: BigBlue
    Expansion 2: Melkor
    Core: Ransac
    Expansion 3: Al0ysiusHWWW
    Expansion 4: Oversoul
    Expansion 5: DarthFerret
    Standalone 2: Spiderman

    The rule is, you can't pick a set from a block already represented.

    Modus, standalone one is...

    Oh... in case it helps...

    Blocks:

    Ice Age - Alliances, Coldsnap
    Mirage - Visions, Weatherlight
    Tempest - Stronghold, Exodus
    Urza's Saga - Urza's Legacy, Urza's Destiny
    Mercadian Masques - Nemesis, Prophecy
    Invasion - Planeshift, Apocolypse
    Odyssey - Torment, Judgement
    Onslaught - Legions, Scourge
    Mirrodin - Darksteel, Fifth Dawn
    Champions of Kamigawa - Betrayers of Kamigawa, Saviors of Kamigawa
    Ravnica: City of Guilds - Guildpact, Dissension
    Time Spiral - Planar Chaos, Future Sight
    Lorwyn - Morningtide
    Shadowmoor - Eventide
    Shards of Alara - Conflux

    Core sets are Alpha, Beta/Unlimited, Revised, 4th Edition, 5th Edition, 6th Edition, 7th Edition, 8th Edition, 9th Edition, or 10th Edition (X)

    Unblocked expansoins are - Arabian Nights, Antiquities, Legends, The Dark, Fallen Empires, and Homelands

    Excluded sets include the Starter/Portal Sets, Chronicles, and Unhinged/Unglued. Also excluded are promotional cards not printed in a selected expansion.
  16. Al0ysiusHWWW It's Good to Rock Out

    Man, no one better sabatoge my pick. I ALREADY have my deck planned out.
  17. Melkor Active Member

    That is impressive, I'd generally have trouble building a deck with a current card pool of 0
  18. BigBlue Magic Jones

    Apparently he knows which expansion he's picking (and presumably which one Oversoul will be)... So, that will be the basis of his deck...

    At this point, You can rest assured that Disenchant will be available... As will Forest, Plains, Swamp, and Mountain - but someone will work hard to make Island a banned card.

    However, anyone have any answers for my question?

    I don't know how Lorwyn/Shadowmoor panned out... were they blocks with only 2 sets? or was it a 4 set block?

    Also, should we consider Legends an expansion or a standalone based on the size of it?
  19. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    I didn't know you had questions :)

    I think those are two block sets.

    Legends is still an expansion, methinks.
  20. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Well, even I don't know which expansion I'm picking yet. I have some favorites, but it depends on what other people pick first. I do think I know which set Al0ysius has in mind, but I'm not telling.
