  1. Al0ysiusHWWW It's Good to Rock Out

    Did you just discard geddon by default? You could still randomly discard the dead card. That's totally allowed in my book.

    I take the damage.
  2. Ransac CPA Trash Man

    Yeah, I discarded it by default. I really appreciate the fact that you just want to play the game, BUT at some point I'm gonna needed to be faulted for my reckless mistakes. It's cool. I'll discard the Orb the next time you attack.

    And with no cards in hand and you being tapped out, I kinda figured you had no responses to my attack.... which is why I said "done."

    :D

    Untap, Upkeep, Draw..... and I'll concede. I drew another Etched Oracle. I won't be able to cast it and nothing I draw next turn will be able to help.

    Game 3 then. I'll play first. I'll post my first move tomorrow.... after I've found something to replace the Zuran Orb with.

    In a sanctioned tournament you'd have to replace it with a basic land.. just saying :)
  10. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    That's be the same for Al0ysiusHWWW with his Brainstorms then... :)
  11. Modus Pwnens Eligible for User Title

    Brainstorm is in Masques, so that's legal?
  12. Ransac CPA Trash Man


    Perhaps, but here I had the "luxury" of sending my decklist to another member for verification/validation and heard no response.

    Ransac, cpa trash man
  13. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    I think it's restricted - Al0ysiusHWW has multiples.

    I didn't think Mooseman was supposed to validate the decklists....
  14. Ransac CPA Trash Man

    He wasn't?.... I thought he was...


    Anyway, I finally found a suitable replacement for the Orbs and sent MM my new list.

    Draw 7, keep 7, Bayou, Llanowar Elves. Done.

  15. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    I don't know, maybe he was, but if he was, it wasn't clear to me. Like I said when we started out, I wasn't exactly sure why we were sending in decklists in the first place since this whole thing is on the honor system :)
  16. Modus Pwnens Eligible for User Title

    Reading back in the ByoS thread, it seems to me that it was just to dramatically decrease the risks of abuse, such as changing sideboard cards depending on the metagame. Although there is an honour system, it does help to pretty much eliminate any chances by having someone collecting the decklists (since people, including me, were righteously opposed to posting them in public)

    Stil, I'm fine with you replacing them..
  17. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Really? I thought he was T.O. I mean, it doesn't really matter anyway, but I thought that was the point of us sending him our decklists.
  18. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Like I said, I wasn't sure why we were sending him the decklists. He volunteered, but it wasn't clear that he was checking them. In fact, looking at mine, it appears I have one illegal card in my sideboard that I have to replace.

    So since that's three decks with problems right now, it's pretty clear to me that Mooseman didn't think of himself as the deck validator, just the central person to collect decklists, maybe to post when we're all done.
  19. Melkor Active Member

    I didn't think he was supposed to check them for legality, I thought it was just to make sure we weren't switching cards that were in our decks
  20. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    But that seems pretty hard to do by accident. And if someone wanted to cheat on purpose, he could still do it by controlling his own draws, which would be the easiest and most effective way to do it anyway...
