    don't you need to put two cards in your GY with the note?

    No, to stop abusive cards like traumatize etc it's only 1 card... I'd have rather put 2 to be honest...
  6. Modus Pwnens Eligible for User Title

    Ah the new rules, of course. Thank you for educating me mr "i'll reanimate a monger" ;)

    You still need to add "Death" to your GY though..
  7. turgy22 Nothing Special

    Confused again...
    Where did the 2nd mana come from to play death?
    Did you mean to play Reanimate?
  8. BigBlue Magic Jones

    Sorry, yes... I need to look up my cards from now on... Sorry...

    It never ceases to amaze me how much there is for 1 mana when you look at the entire card library... I realized my monger mistake right after I posted, but I didn't want to change it...

    Oh well, swords is gone... :) (so is monger and reanimate... :( )

    I wouldn't say you made a mistake. It's hard to be sure who benefitted most from that exchange. Swords is insanely good in this format and I really wanted to hold it out for future games. Alas, I really had no other way to deal with your Spiritmonger.

    Untap. Draw.
    Play Death Spark, targetting your Lion.
    Attack with my hound.

    True that... I have this feeling the first game will be the 0 or 1 CC game... Subsequent games we'll move on to 2 CC Bears w/ some one drop leftovers. resources are just so limited and there are a ton of answers.

    Without the broken cards, this format is more interesting... limited resources is tough, and 2 for 1 cards are still broken.

    Yeah, it's definitely slowed down... a lot more choices to make. Although I kind of did enjoy thinking up broken combos and I really thought the choices we had to make post-seven-card draws were interesting. But, of course, whoever comes out on top after such situations is basically going to win.

    And I wouldn't say 2 for 1 cards are broken. Good? Yes. Great? Yeah. But not quite good enough where you'd have to say they make the game unfair. I'd put most cantrips on the Counterspell level for this format. They're necessary, but won't win any games alone. Moving on....



    In response to your rats, I'm going to pay 2 life to cycle Street Wraith. Draw a card. Discard Wilt-Leaf Liege. It's triggered ability puts it into play.

    Untap. Draw.
    Play Rain of Embers, dealing 1 damage to all creatures and players. (Feel free to change your graveyard order, if you so desire.)
    Attack with both my guys for 7 damage.
    Done.
