cad, Monday, 12 December 2011 03:17 (eight years ago) link

iatee, Monday, 12 December 2011 03:19 (eight years ago) link

yeah i am on a mac

cad, Monday, 12 December 2011 03:20 (eight years ago) link

hmmm I'm sure we'll figure it out

iatee, Monday, 12 December 2011 03:22 (eight years ago) link

cad, Monday, 12 December 2011 03:25 (eight years ago) link

є(٥_ ٥)э, Monday, 12 December 2011 03:55 (eight years ago) link

i'll get in on this at some point. what format/sets do you guys want to use? you gotta limit me or i'm gonna be coming at you with Knight of the Reliquary

smh, Monday, 12 December 2011 04:27 (eight years ago) link

well my comfort zone consists of everything through weatherlight but i'm adaptable

cad, Monday, 12 December 2011 05:00 (eight years ago) link

i would love to play some innistrad w/ whoever -- maybe draft?

Mordy, Monday, 12 December 2011 05:00 (eight years ago) link

yeah id like to try innistrad as well if only to prevent from allocating sparse dollars to this junk irl

є(٥_ ٥)э, Monday, 12 December 2011 05:14 (eight years ago) link

haha yeah as much as I like magic there is no way I would invest any real life money on these pieces of paper, that's why playing online is cool. I look forward to owning u all as I did w/ mordy tonight. (4-0)

iatee, Monday, 12 December 2011 06:24 (eight years ago) link

ayo

cad, Tuesday, 13 December 2011 02:04 (eight years ago) link

hey dude, I am up for playing but I actually have to go to a more stable internet connection which means I can do it in like 10 mins? msg me your gmail

iatee, Tuesday, 13 December 2011 02:20 (eight years ago) link

k i sent it

cad, Tuesday, 13 December 2011 02:21 (eight years ago) link

cockatrice is awesome! ppl need to get on this shit

cad, Tuesday, 13 December 2011 03:55 (eight years ago) link

i wish ppl had posted more cool old cards itt or debated which colors are cool. wanted someone to go to bat for an artifact deck

є(٥_ ٥)э, Tuesday, 13 December 2011 05:57 (eight years ago) link

haha sorry for taking it over

artifact decks, at least in classic era magic, just can't put up a fight

later in the game you could build decks around them tho...I think there was an artifact-y set?

iatee, Tuesday, 13 December 2011 06:00 (eight years ago) link

such a rad card

є(٥_ ٥)э, Tuesday, 13 December 2011 06:02 (eight years ago) link

http://www.coolstuffinc.com/images/Products/mtg%20art/Antiquities/Mishra

cool card iirc

iatee, Tuesday, 13 December 2011 06:02 (eight years ago) link

do you know about the title of that card lamp?

iatee, Tuesday, 13 December 2011 06:02 (eight years ago) link

antiquties is basically an artifact set and its really really early ~~ i think any of the subsequent sets built around the urza/mishra mythos are artifact based?? idk tho

є(٥_ ٥)э, Tuesday, 13 December 2011 06:03 (eight years ago) link

nah I meant one of the mid-period sets, let me look it up

iatee, Tuesday, 13 December 2011 06:04 (eight years ago) link

which card? i have imgs off and the link for yours wont work. the other one is larry nevin spelt backwards - i guess the idea for the card came from one of his books

є(٥_ ٥)э, Tuesday, 13 December 2011 06:05 (eight years ago) link

haha yeah that's what I meant

iatee, Tuesday, 13 December 2011 06:05 (eight years ago) link

mine was mishra's factory

what's w/ these sites and the squirrels

iatee, Tuesday, 13 December 2011 06:05 (eight years ago) link

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mirrodin_(Magic:_The_Gathering)

this is the one I was thinking of

iatee, Tuesday, 13 December 2011 06:07 (eight years ago) link

overall I think w/ the early sets there are a handful of great artifacts but they don't add up to anything killer on their own

later in the game you get stuff like this and suddenly artifacts can fuck people up

iatee, Tuesday, 13 December 2011 06:24 (eight years ago) link

haha academy and tinker are banned in every format pretty much

the urza block really fucked up the game, there were like 20 different cards that led to turn 1-2 kill combos

smh, Tuesday, 13 December 2011 06:26 (eight years ago) link

man i just got sucked into looking through the cards in the urza's saga set there are some p amazing cards geez

є(٥_ ٥)э, Tuesday, 13 December 2011 06:28 (eight years ago) link

the thing abt early artifacts is that shit like the mox gems and sol ring and obv black lotus are sorta rad w/o needing to combo w/other shit, theyre just inherently rad

i mean i guess this is really obv but as the game progresses cards are so much more impt in context of other cards whereas early on cards are just facevalue powerful

є(٥_ ٥)э, Tuesday, 13 December 2011 06:30 (eight years ago) link

basically every time they make an artifact themed block the game breaks and they have to ban stuff, its kind of funny at this point

smh, Tuesday, 13 December 2011 06:35 (eight years ago) link

iirc w/ early sets artifact creatures are all a tad overpriced mana-wise, just a bit too expensive to be competitive w/ colored creatures

except juggernaut...that dude made it into a lot of my decks

artifact porn

iatee, Tuesday, 13 December 2011 07:09 (eight years ago) link

for some reason at one point I was really obsessed with maze of ith for one of my decks and I went and bought a pack from that expansion which was at that point like 3 years old and it cost me $8 which was obviously a lot of money to me and anyway it actually had a maze of ith in it even though maze of ith was pretty rare

max max max max, Tuesday, 13 December 2011 12:19 (eight years ago) link

that's my artifact story

max max max max, Tuesday, 13 December 2011 12:19 (eight years ago) link

huh looking it up maze of ith was pretty common. I was still psyched on it tho

max max max max, Tuesday, 13 December 2011 12:21 (eight years ago) link

my most expensive card was a revised shivan dragon

max max max max, Tuesday, 13 December 2011 12:22 (eight years ago) link

maze of ith was actually a land not an artifact for some reason. because of this it still gets played sometimes thanks to Knight of the Reliquary

smh, Tuesday, 13 December 2011 13:36 (eight years ago) link

the thing abt early artifacts is that shit like the mox gems and sol ring and obv black lotus are sorta rad w/o needing to combo w/other shit, theyre just inherently rad

the funny thing about these cards is that the designers knew they were overpowered but that there wouldn't be enough of these cards to go around because they were rare

I'm in the mood to party (J0n Arbuckle), Tuesday, 13 December 2011 13:42 (eight years ago) link

in the long-term that proved to be true

iatee, Tuesday, 13 December 2011 14:32 (eight years ago) link

still trying to figure out why i wanted maze of ith so bad

max max max max, Tuesday, 13 December 2011 15:01 (eight years ago) link

it's a dope card, you don't need any excuses

iatee, Tuesday, 13 December 2011 15:04 (eight years ago) link

no but i had like a COMBO going on. this is going to kill me.

max max max max, Tuesday, 13 December 2011 15:07 (eight years ago) link

it's good...but it's not COMBO good

iatee, Tuesday, 13 December 2011 15:14 (eight years ago) link

im not sure what this combo would be

cad, Tuesday, 13 December 2011 15:17 (eight years ago) link

the combo of finding maze of ith and putting it in your deck

iatee, Tuesday, 13 December 2011 15:18 (eight years ago) link

if i had been into magic as a kid i wouldve spent so much money on worthless decks cuz i still only really like cards cuz of how they look

є(٥_ ٥)э, Tuesday, 13 December 2011 15:18 (eight years ago) link

in some ways that's more justifiable, if you're spending $10 on a small piece of paper, it should at least be aesthetically appealing
