man, so sad watching both GureiSeion and DeckBuilder345 stream...

both sound so depressed

August 30, 2013 12:05 a.m.

I should not watch live streaming...

August 30, 2013 12:59 a.m.

GureiSeion says... #7

@Tempest - I assure you any depressed-sounding was mostly from lack of sleep. Unless I normally sound like that, in which case, sorry!

@DeckBuilder345 - Apologies for the abrupt post-game banter exit; Old MtGO decided it was a good time for a crash. -_-
Once again, good games!

August 30, 2013 1:08 a.m.

Go Team Landot!

August 30, 2013 7:24 a.m.

I fundamentally disagree with the above post.

Stop winning. I don't like it.

SwiftDeath says... #10

next to the results can you post a link to the match on twitch I missed several of them and it is annoying to go back and find it every time I fall behind.

Thank you.

KrazyCaley says... #11

I will do that from now on.

August 31, 2013 1:09 a.m.

Unforgivn_II says... #12

Come on landgrafb, don't be a hater. Just because our games always go 13+ turns doesn't mean we shouldn't win :P

August 31, 2013 3:34 p.m.

I just don't like that your group is winning. That's my group's job.

August 31, 2013 5:24 p.m.

Unforgivn_II says... #14

Oh ok. Wasn't sure if you were a spectator or not. Still, woo! Go team!

August 31, 2013 6:02 p.m.

Darkness1835 says... #15

@Unforgivn_II You fool! You've leaked vital information, crucial to the destruction of your group in our upcoming match!

September 1, 2013 12:35 a.m.

Yeah, but Darkness1835, when is our next match?

September 1, 2013 12:49 a.m.

Unforgivn_II says... #17

Pff. Just watch the replays if you really wanna know how we do it :P We can't really stop you.

September 1, 2013 1:08 a.m.

Hey now we play a fair game just like you. Dark is clearly just intrigued by your long-ass games.


September 1, 2013 1:52 a.m.

Unforgivn_II says... #19

Yeah. But when you think about it, this while thing is way more secret than a real draft. Normally after drafting and in deckbuilding, I just lay my cards out and go to town. Discuss what I saw, stuff like that. Plus, if your game ends before others, you walk around and check out other games.

On here, we keep everything hidden, and most of us stay honorable and don't peek. The issue isn't so much about knowing (although holding cards in hand to stop unstoppable bombs does happen occasionally), but being able to consistently stop the opponent's win-con. You've only got a 45 card pool, you don't have much to choose from in terms of answers. You've just gotta have better (continuing the analogy...) questions.

And I've probably spoken too much, so I'm done. Good luck (not really hehe)

September 1, 2013 3 a.m.

Haha. You just gave us the secret to victory.

In order to defeat you, we simply have to not let you win. Genius!

This information will be your undoing.

September 1, 2013 9:24 a.m.

Unforgivn_II says... #21

That just got me thinking, there needs to be some ridiculously costed instant (or maybe sorcery to make it mostly unplayable) that says "If an opponent would win the game this turn, you win instead". So then the goal would be to let the opponent "win" for once.

Euphonatron says... #22

The plan is working. Sow more misinformation, Unforgivn_II!!!!

September 2, 2013 2:07 a.m.

Unforgivn_II says... #23

Ok. Man! Too bad Landot doesnt get to keep our triple Voice of Resurgence s after the game!

September 3, 2013 4:34 a.m.

Voice is only pretty decent in draft. You still need the rest of the cards to make it god.

September 3, 2013 7:15 a.m.

apt142 says... #25

It's pretty cool he also pulled a playset of Swords to Plowshares too.

September 3, 2013 9 a.m.

RussischerZar says... #26

Well, I guess I'm lucky to not have passed those Force of Will s.

September 4, 2013 1:18 p.m.

apt142 says... #27

Yes. But did you pull a Storm Crow to go with them?

September 4, 2013 1:51 p.m.

sewellius says... #28

So.. should we be telling the guys about the Black Lotus set our team picked up, since everyone else is fessing up?

September 4, 2013 1:53 p.m.

Unforgivn_II says... #29

No. Black Lotus is bad in a multicolored set

September 4, 2013 1:54 p.m.

GureiSeion says... #30

I'll admit our Time Walk hasn't exactly been pulling its weight lately...

September 4, 2013 5:42 p.m.

Absinthman says... #31

Nothing that has been said above is of any consequence. Our deck consists of 40 Chancellor of the Dross . You are all dead before you even know it.

September 4, 2013 6:16 p.m.

Darkness1835 says... #32

landot and I have arranged to play at 8pm PST tonight (Wednesday)). Too short notice, KrazyCaley?

September 4, 2013 6:19 p.m.

GureiSeion says... #33

@Absinthman - Suppose I'll have to bank on aggressively mulliganing into Gemstone Caverns + Angel's Grace , then.

September 4, 2013 6:54 p.m.

Absinthman says... #34

@GureiSeion: Why you little!!

September 4, 2013 7:19 p.m.

KrazyCaley says... #35

@Darkness1835 and landot - Nah, you're fine.

September 4, 2013 10:17 p.m.

Darkness1835 says... #36

@KrazyCaley sounds fantastic!

September 4, 2013 10:19 p.m.

TridenT says... #37

Less short notice - Leafs and I are on board for 3am eastern on Friday morning ( or as I call it, Thursday night after work)

September 4, 2013 10:50 p.m.

KrazyCaley says... #38

Ok, midnight Pacific time, then, got it.

September 5, 2013 12:10 a.m.

tempest says... #39

oh my goodness. landot, lay off the first place trophy snarl

jkjk. congrats! i think? i probably shouldn't be happy that you're winning but for sake of sportsmanship...

September 5, 2013 12:20 a.m.

landot says... #40

wait. I don't get to keep the triple voice pool? heck with this. i'm taking up ice hockey.

Also this has been super fun, and the games have all been both interesting and close.

September 5, 2013 12:35 a.m.

KrazyCaley says... #41

Technically GureiSeion could still tie, I believe. Not sure what tiebreaker status is.

September 5, 2013 6:20 a.m.

GureiSeion says... #42

@KrazyCaley - Oh great; pressure.

September 5, 2013 6:27 a.m.

Woo woo, Team Landot!

September 5, 2013 7:31 a.m.

Unforgivn_II says... #44

No, Gurei can still win. He's the only one to have beaten us, so if he wins and we lose, he has the tiebreaker.

September 5, 2013 2:06 p.m.

Unforgivn_II says... #45

Wow. Just watched our match Darkness1835. I read what Caley said in the chat after the match. Your deck is mean...

September 5, 2013 3:20 p.m.

GureiSeion says... #46

@Unforgivn_II - Only because I had a lot of anti-topdeck luck on my side.

September 5, 2013 4:58 p.m.

Unforgivn_II says... #47

Well sure. But our deck is totally stoppable. Its only fair someone else gets good luck, we've won a lot of matches because of a free win from a mana flood or screw.

September 5, 2013 6:05 p.m.

tempest says... #48

hey! are you (Leafs_suck and TridenT) done?

September 7, 2013 3:36 a.m.

TridenT says... #49

Nope!We got waylaid by unforseen travel problems keeping Leafs away.Waiting to hear if we can arrange an alternate game time.

September 7, 2013 5:29 a.m.

Deco_y says... #50

Tonight at midnight PST bitches!

September 11, 2013 12:24 a.m.

Dallie says... #51
