: WUBRG will be defederating from mastodon.social this coming Tuesday (October 6). Their moderators haven't been dealing with bad actors well, and this is the tool we have to keep ourselves safe and hopefully give them a wakeup call.

If you've got friends on .social who want to move, I can recommend instances. If you're inviting friends to join wubrg, please let me know so I can be appropriately welcoming.

Sometimes a squid with a knife just goes all the way.

Amazing that I can go 5-3 on a draft and still feel terrible at this game.

Dream journal 

I had a Magic deck, but was playing the Star Wars CCG and trying to shoehorn the cards into equivalent ones. My opponent was on Dark Side, and I was pretty sure they weren't following some of the obscure rules, but it's been so damn long since I played that game that I wasn't sure.

I feel like I tried to combine those two games even when I played them both, and it didn't work then either.

Turns out [[Radha, Heart of Keld]] makes for a *fun* landfall Brawl commander. Not unbeatable in any sense, but really fun.


@mycroft Oo, I should get copies of Parallel Lives and Anointed Procession...

(Nahiri made the knife. She's trying to expand her repertoire beyond red-hot swords.)

@mycroft Given that things like draftsim exist, I'd be surprised if there's not a way to simulate it.

@DialMforMara I don't have enough XLN packs around for it, but definitely lots of RNA. Might even have that much RTR.

@DialMforMara Hundred card singleton, so you have to run some amount of filler. This game is Cam on Feather (WAR), Shivam on Nethroi (IKO), Wheeler on Niambi (M21), and Kathleen on Etrata (GRN)

@DialMforMara They're playing with boxes from Standard-line sets, and if we want to make this happen I can provide those.

Okay if I had time for it I'd be really tempted by the Sealed Commander format in the latest Friday Night Paper Fight: Each player's sealed pool is a complete box.

Potential twist: coordinate commander picks so there's not a lot of color overlap, then after each game, trade decks with another player, then upgrade your new deck with cards you didn't use in your old one.

Zendikar Rising, weird lands 

@DialMforMara Given that standard is losing ten shocklands while only gaining six of these, I'm less worried about these in particular than I am about giving Uro decks a pile of landfall triggers.
