Old Fogey Discussion

Yesterday on How does blocking as a ...

Sorry, another banding question.

The defending player has an Old Fogey on the battlefield and five other Game-Trail Changeling dinosaurs on the battlefield, so can block as a band.

If the attacking player has a Brontotherium and Provokes one of the defending player's creatures, can the defending player still block as a band including that creature?

Can Battlefront Krushok be blocked by a band of creatures? If not, I assume a band of creatures can block a creature with Menace like Boggart Brute?

Or if so, what exactly happens if Nacatl War-Pride is blocked by a band? And if not, I assume that the defending player would be unable to block as a band because each creature would have to individually block a different token copy of Nacatl War-Pride?

As one who's an Old Fogey and has been playing since circa 1994, this sounds really cool! But, I really hope they reprint some really solid value cards, especially given the $10 per pack MSRP.

Podma101: Jace won't die. He's their poster boy for Planeswalkers, and they named their proprietary font for their cards after him. They can't get rid of him, because as any Old Fogey can tell you - Blue Wins.

I know about ante, and i'm not even really an Old Fogey, mostly because of picking up a couple Timmerian Fiends from someone because I like old cards.

Yeah Beastlyewok it would be a hoot, unfortunately aside from just being ridiculous, it's also from an Un-set. I do wish Wizards would do another Un-set. I love my Cheatyface, my Old Fogey and my Shoe Tree. /;-)

Zuruck61, it's funny that Beastlyewok would bring up Incoming! right after you suggested Tempting Wurm. On the surface, the Wurm looks like it would be a great card for this deck, but it pushes the game forward at a blistering pace. While I enjoy giving out mana, card draw, and some other sweet effects, allowing everyone to just vomit their entire hand onto to battlefield is a bit too much, plus, with all the card draw I'm giving out, if one other player has a Reliquary Tower out, it's game over. Even if I have Anvil of Bogardan on the field, things just go completely insane, so for that reason, even though I bought a Tempting Wurm for possible inclusion in the deck, I've never added it in.

Thanks for the fun suggestions though, guys.

I really enjoy this article series, though it never fails to make me feel like an Old Fogey myself. Onslaught was a great block. It may have been a bit before "my time" but when I was starting out, I collected a ton of Onslaught stuff because I loved the idea of tribal.

I will say though that I never held Slivers to be more horrifying than Elves. I blame Wellwisher for that one. To all the naysayers that claim "pure lifegain doesn't win games" have fun hacking your way through 300+ life before you run out of cards. Of course that's not to say that Slivers aren't an incredibly powerful tribe, but I'd rather face them than Elves or Goblins to be honest.

Overall a great read though. :)

I'm an Old Fogey, remember? To me, Serra Angel used to be a Bomb, and Blue still got bigger creatures. I'm just used to White not doing something spectacular, but being solid and reliable at all stages of the game. Much like their ability to draw cards.
