Any time people talk about things like this I like to point out that we tend to forget exactly when things happen; the seventies didn’t (socially) end until apprx. 1984, the 80s didn’t end until about 1994, etc. “50s Music” went well into the 1960s. Having said all that: Pantera really is a fixture in music. A towering mountain crag at one end of the world map of music, forever jutting its chin into the wind. Totally solid.

I feel like white used to be damage /prevention/ (like with Guardian Angel, which is a WILD card when you think about it) and green was actual life gain, with the life-gain-fireball Stream of Life.

I think it’s fine to have green life gain tied to the destruction (or at least engagement with - ex. Living Artifact) artifacts.

Gleeock did you ever play “Thief: the dark project” (I think that was the whole title)? It was very steam punky but also an early stealth FPS’er. The intro was BOMB too. At least... for back then...

I missed the first one, played the second one relentlessly, and then tried the third (I loved the people I got to play it with, not so enamored with the game itself). I feel like I mirror your devotion to that second game - it really hit me hard. D2 is one of the few games I categorize as “retirement home” games; games I will play in The Home if I’m lucky enough to live that long. 100% recommend listening to the OST (original sound track). It’s on you tube and I listen to it sometimes when I’m doing dishes.

Said on I really miss …...

I like the flavor text that isn’t locked into a storyline. Generalized mood, with oblique references to names and places that may never actually be fleshed out. I miss those loose threads that let your mind wander, as opposed to “Jace stepped into Ahmonket and grinned; ‘That guy’s name is Nicol Bolas’”. If I wanted that I would buy their books.

For Commander I always choose form over function (lol) but if I get to play 2-headed-giant with someone at a prerelease I’m solidly in full function mode. It’s a real stretch to be able to make a themely deck, but forcing someone to ride shotgun on a poorly-constructed theme deck (with potential prizes on the line, no less) is a great way to never get invited along again ;p
