@SliverQueen we should probably do some kind of power-level balancing

I want to play Ixalan, but would not be excited about playing it against Darksteel or Ikoria

@SliverQueen I like it

would we be limited to current Standard? Because Ixalan and/or Ravnica would be fun

@SliverQueen yay

would we each start with a different set? Are these 60 or 100-card decks? (The bigger decks will be hard to build in monocolor-focused sets)

@SliverQueen I would play that with you, assuming I can afford a box of Commander Legends

BLM/racism NPR interview 

I want to link amn NPR interview with Tyler Tynes that ended on a powerful sentiment.

"[Black people] do not need allies. They need accomplices."

games, boycotts, abuse adjacent, advice on enjoying games when upper management of the company has issues 

Small reminder that most game developers (like, the people) really strongly reccomend you don't boycott games or refuse to buy them or steal them to try and punish higher ups and execs, because it doesn't... work? You just get game devs laid off. No execs get hurt.

So like... feel free to enjoy and consume the media that looks good, and support the devs, whilst also being nice and loud about the shit upper management need to address, persistently, to push for more and more action. Simple.

It's been so long since I was excited about Magic story.
Nahiri has a full party, made up of the four new tribal legends, and Jace is clueless because he's trying to be ethical and not read people's minds. (Also he makes a friend named Mara who remembers him from the war.)

My new Card Kingdom article is out, and it's got advice for converting your favorite Brawl deck to Commander

We had our exciting preview earlier today. That doesn’t mean you don’t get our regularly scheduled episode. Join us for Memories of Zendikar part 1. The most burley man there regales us with stories of the past. m.soundcloud.com/user-43874811

What's this? Another piece of great, story related removal?

We're proud to present our card, "Nahiri's Binding". Check out what shenanigans we can get up to in game and IRL here:

Thank you to Wizards of the Coast for our free card!

Obligatory introduction post 

@megaRammy I want to know more about the Happily Ever After deck. Never been brave/greedy enough for 5c, but I knew that was A Thing and Brawl was seriously My Format before everything shut down.

also I can help you learn deckbuilding, I've been writing about it for Card Kingdom

For the person out in the void that needs to hear this today:
You are accepted.
You are valid.
You are loved.

I'll admit that "he flies, hits twice" isn't the WORST possible translation of "Flying, Double Strike." But it's all downhill from there, next thing you know you're attacking England.

Also don't think I didn't notice that the rock formation behind this guy is suspiciously Emrakul-shaped.

We had an entire two set block whose theme was "notice things in the art being subtly Emrakul-shaped," we've trained for this.

Obligatory introduction post 

@megaRammy nice to meet you! What decks are you playing these days?

Zendikar Rising, weird lands 

@SliverQueen don't get me wrong, I'm excited to use these in Commander (also Ariel needs them). I'm just very used to Standard being a trash fire and don't think Uro is the only place they'll be a problem.

RGWU! It's the new dance craze! It's tests your life ability, AND destroys all those who would dare oppose you!

I've found the next thing that'll break Standard: double-faced pseudobasic lands. You choose which one it is as you play it, and they don't even enter tapped.
