I saw that you recently thumbs upped a controversial comment of mine regarding the Reserved list. Why? If you don't mind my asking. I understand my perspective on it is genuinely unpopular among the more vocal online mtg players. What's your perspective?

TheoryCrafter, that was not a very intelligent thing to do, so why would Norn do that?

E3 was once the big video gaming event; everyone eagerly anticipated it and was thrilled to be able to participate in it, whether as a guest or a presenter, but E3 has been declining in recent years, with fewer major presenters appearing at it and attendance being far less than before. Some people say that the covid-19 pandemic ruined the event, but others say that the convention was declining long before that, but everyone is lamenting its decline without actually offering a solution to it, which I find to be very displeasing.

Therefore, I must ask: what can be done to save E3, to help restore it to its former glory, or at least ensure that it can adapt and survive the changing world? Is there anything that can be done to revive it?

griffstick, Starstorm cannot damage players, but its variable cost makes it very nice, so I thank you for that suggestion.

I just like to give thumbs-ups to other users; I very much believe that the reserved list is a bad thing, but I like to acknowledge every post in any discussion in which I participate.

I have not yet read all of the stories for March of the Machines, but I saw flavor text that stated that the destruction of new Phyrexia caused all glistening oil to lose its potency, which completely goes against everything that was established in the story for decades.

A single drop is sufficient to infect a plane, and that is what infected Mirrodin; each drop is like a virus that spreads; it does not need a central hub to function, which is why Phyrexia is so terrifying and unstoppable, so why did WotC change that central aspect of the lore?

shadow63, do you have any evidence of that?

vasarto77, will you please not make such presumptions or play into old stereotypes?

I saw this post, and I am very displeased that WotC is prioritizing digital play to the point that paper cards are being designed in such a way as to play better in digital formats, since the game was physical long before it was digital, so I feel that the physical game should always have priority over any digital formats.

What does everyone else say about this? Why is WotC prioritizing digital play over physical play?

I have nothing against planeswalkers mechanically; I dislike how, ever since they became a card type, WotC has been focusing so heavily on them, to the point of overshadowing other card types, including legendary creatures, which are my favorite cards, as I began playing in 2003, before planeswalkers became a card type.

March 28, 2023 9:11 p.m.

griffstick, bushido_man96, those are all great suggestions, so I thank you, very much!

What about Inferno? Is that card too expensive for what it does? I am considering it because it is an instant, while most of the others are sorceries.

March 28, 2023 9:09 p.m.

I am currently building a Gisela, Blade of Goldnight EDH deck, and I believe that it would be good to have one or more mass destruction spells, in the case that I should need them, so I am wondering which mass destruction spells would be best for such a deck.

Blasphemous Act is an obvious choice, due to its synergy with Gisela, but I am also considering Vanquish the Horde, Winds of Abandon, White Sun's Twilight, and Fumigate, since those are all excellent mass destruction spells, as well.

What does everyone else say about this? Which mass destruction spells are ideal for a Gisela, Blade of Goldnight deck?

I have replaced Abrupt Decay with Cankerbloom, which I was reluctant to do, as Abrupt Decay is an amazing card, but the creature has better synergy with the sacrifice and reanimation theme that this deck has.

Abaques, yes, that is a very good suggestion, and the fact that its activated ability is less expensive than that of Caustic Caterpillar is highly relevant, since I can simply bypass its normal casting cost by reanimating it with Meren.

March 20, 2023 10:16 p.m.

Both Tymna the Weaver and Thrasios, Triton Hero are very expensive, so I would like to see them be reprinted in this set.

GodzSoldier, I actually did not at all notice that Deadly Brew was a sorcery, not an instant, so I have changed my mind about it.

As for Claws of Gix, I have that card in this deck because it allows me to sacrifice any permanent, not merely creatures, which has actually been useful, on certain occasions.

Said on Should I Put …...


I am contemplating putting both Caustic Caterpillar and Deadly Brew into my Meren of Clan Nel Toth EDH deck, but I am not certain which cards I should replace with them, or if I should even do so, at all.

I imagine that Caustic Caterpillar could replace Abrupt Decay, because, while I fully acknowledge that Abrupt Decay is an awesome card, the caterpillar works better with the sacrifice theme that this deck has, and Deadly Brew could replace Village Rites, since I already have numerous cards that allow me to sacrifice creatures to draw cards.

What does everyone else say about this? Should I put Deadly Brew and Caustic Caterpillar into my Meren deck?

WotC shall be introducing a new card type, battle, in March of the Machines, but I wonder why it is necessary to do that, since there is no real need to do so, as each existing card type fulfills a specific purpose or niche. It is true that planeswalkers were not a card type for the early years of the game, but they now have been in the gamer for longer than they were not in the game, and they have become a beloved part of it, since then, but this year is the game's 30th anniversary, so I think that WotC should not have waited for so long to introduce a new card type; if they had intended to introduce a new card type, they should have done so, earlier, but it is now far too late into the game.

What does everyone else say about this? Why is WotC introducing a new card type, now?
