I'm not impressed at all, even after I could see things.

What would have impressed you?

It feels like it's more of the same. Daenerys has shit with Drogon. Night's Watch fights corpses. Jaime Lannister is stirring up shit again. Rinse and repeat. What would have impressed me is a departure from it.

I played it on the Xbox, so technically, you are doing it wrong.

Happy thought (for you): I do not have access to nuclear weapons.

Haha, the controls are just fine. The Souls games are great, though Bloodborne got very easy at the end.

Then you must play with sensitivity down to 3 or something. I can only account for your odd perception that way.

Something I just realized: Darksiders has a VERY POSITIVE score on STeam. How the hell did that happen? A pseudo freeroaming game which stole from every game in a thousand different genres with a story so flimsy my dog could eat it? VERY POSITIVE?

NO MORE MARVEL MOVIES

It's starting to really piss me off.

I had that feeling some time ago. Now I just shake my head with sadness and continue assembling my Imperial Guardsmen.

That was destroyed too, when they renamed them "Astra Militarum".

Is the term "Space marine" trademarked by GW? If not, they'll probably update the name too! If it's not trademark-able, then change it!

They tried but failed.

I agree with Warlord on this one.

Dark Souls is not hard. It's frustrating, sure. You know why? Because the controls are so sluggish.

1) didnt you get one of the super rare bfz lands?
2) the house always wins.

1) Yes. Which I still haven't sold and was once worth 400 and now bottoms out at 160
2) None of those people were the house.

Is it me or is something weird going on with the rare distribution of rares in SOI?

Last night I went to the release party. Absolute jank. Brain in a jar levels of jank. Welcome to the fold levels of jank.

A friend of mine opened his SIXTH Sorin in TWO events. I get rattlechains.

An opponent opened TWO Geralf's masterpiece, a Westvale Abbey. I get angel of deliverance.

I get inexorable blob. I get harness the storms.

What the hell.

I was hoping it wasn't going to turn out to be Emrakul, since I don't like eldrazi at all. But everything is hinting very strongly in that direction.

The plot seems to be that Nahiri is drawing Emrakul to Innistrad as revenge against Sorin, and Emrakul's approach is causing the madness and corruption. But it could still be something else!


Well, currently that is the explanation I lean towards. Nahiri was pissed that Sorin wasn't there when the Eldrazi Titans got freed from their prison. I.e. Nahiri blames Sorin for the near destruction of her homeplane. That is why she made the cryptoliths that lead to the drownyard, where cultists worship...something. The circle at the drownyard is basically the landing strip for Emrakul, indicating where she is supposed to land. I.e. one gigantic lure. How is it a landing strip? It is my belief that the cryptoliths are channeling ley lines to one point, making for a huge focal point of mana. Obviously that will attract Emrakul.

That the madness and corruption is due to Emrakul is hinted at in multiple cards. Take, for instance, Paranoid Parish-Blade.



Look closely at his left hand. Well, it doesn't have to be closely since it's practically screaming at you in that resolution.

Then there's obviously Grotesque Mutation.



Now what do we know that also had purplish/reddish/blueish tentacles?

Oh right.


There might be some more hints in other cards, but I haven't found them so far.

Lastly, some whispers abound that Nahiri destroyed Markov Manor because Sorin spread vampirism to Zendikar way back when.

Presumably the werewolf legend will be Ulrich, since there's this card in SOI:



Unless they're trolling us.

I have very little hope we'll see him in Eldritch Moon. The more I think about it, the more likely I feel he might be in the next EDH product as a secondary commander.

Steve, I'm sure this isn't the first time somebody tells you this, but you're a bloody brilliant maniac.  :::cheers:::

Hero Forge is great. I'm sad I don't have the funds to place an order, because I'd be on that in a heartbeat. Make some custom creature for Frostgrave, for instance. At any rate, you going to rebase her or keep her as is?

Yes, let's try playing standard to see if it sucks!

I'm not sure if werewolves are good in edh. But I'm going to use a few with Surrak.

Werewolves can be good if you use the right tools. However, it all depends on the presence of a werewolf legend. If they don't FINALLY print Ulrich in Eldritch Moon, THERE WILL BE BLOOD! Or even Tovolar. Or Skaharra. Just...a RG werewolf legend, dammit!  :icon_evil:

Had Nahiri and Odric. Neither did f-all.
Also, my promo was a fucking Confirm Suspicions. AAAAAAAAARGH.

First opponent had a promo Nahiri.
Friend of mine had a promo Sorin (and a regular Sorin)
etc etc etc.

So far, the set did not impress me. Herp-derp fliers still seems viable. And that is the dumbest strategy since..well...last time we went to innistrad.
