"Here's a little---whatever. A little thing. A disclosure. An insight. Revisionism---I've always been fascinated by it. By the idea of a writer going back and altering things. Make no mistake: an edit is a profoundly aggressive act. As Froid once said, we grieve for the murdered word. If you want to get the measure of an author, don't look at what they've left on the page.... look at what they've taken away." -- Rung (MTMTE #28)

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 July 2020 - 12:46 PM)

I recall number 73 (old british show) discussing the Transformers movie and had the presenters trying to transform a few figures, one argued his deflated beach ball was a Transformer too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 July 2020 - 08:03 AM)

And he's a big ball, but he's not the biggest ball of them all. (That'll be Pulse Unicron.)

Okay?

@  Otaku : (09 July 2020 - 07:47 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk Ah, but the series itself has pronounced "Bass" both ways. ;)  Oh, 90s English Capcom video game voice acting...

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 July 2020 - 03:14 AM)

Looking at my Titan Returns collection I can see they realised they didn't have to paint the Titan Masters after wave one, lazy bums.

@  Maruten : (08 July 2020 - 09:13 PM)

No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Extremely unimpressed with your idea that someone making a negative observation you don't like means they "got triggered."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (08 July 2020 - 11:16 AM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  -LittleAutob... : (08 July 2020 - 10:56 AM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 08:34 AM)

Bazro.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

It could be Bass 10-0

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 July 2020 - 08:34 PM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (07 July 2020 - 04:16 PM)

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 03:43 PM)

And its not Bass XO, its Bass X0, as in Bass, X and Zero from the Mega Man series.

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:33 PM)

@Trpodeca :( :(

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Thats what a gray rock is? Then I'm not one.

@  Trpodeca : (07 July 2020 - 02:12 PM)

Man I just learnt about what seemed like a really cool show, only to realize it was a dream and it dosen't really exist.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 July 2020 - 12:20 PM)

It's a fancy way of saying "Ignore annoying people".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (07 July 2020 - 12:15 PM)

Bass XO has a habit of pasting random drivel here as if doing so were profound.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

And this would be in relation to... what exactly?

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

@  Nevermore : (06 July 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Oh wow. Studio Series Offroad Bumblebee is awesome. His articulation is amazing.

@  -LittleAutob... : (06 July 2020 - 11:18 AM)

Oof-

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 July 2020 - 01:10 AM)

I got Studio Series 39 Cogman yesterday and woke up to find he'd decapitated my titans returns figures.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 July 2020 - 10:19 PM)

If I had a sarcasm powered mouth.. ooohh waaaiiittt...

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 05:01 PM)

Heh

@  Bass X0 : (04 July 2020 - 02:56 PM)

"If I had sarcasm-powered legs, I'd do a happy dance...!"

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 July 2020 - 02:39 PM)

The real clones were the friends we made along the way.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 01:47 PM)

So the Emperor in episodes 1 through 6 was a clone?

SO played the Core 2020 prerelease today. Did about as horrible as ever playing but my pulls were pretty good.

 

Rares were

 

Leyline of Abundance

Leyline of the Void

Mystic Forge

Agent of Trechery

Masterful Replication

Bishop of Wings (Promo)

Temple of Malady (foil)

and Chandra, Awakened Inferno!

 

I was pumped getting the Mythic Chandra and played a Green Red deck trying to focus on Elementals but my cards just weren't all there. But the oddest thing happened at the tournament. It was just 8 of us and 4 of us Pulled Chandra, Awakened Inferno! Not a mix of the 3 different rarity Chandras, Just the Mythic one. How messed up is that?

That sucks Kal. Being a Core Set I was actually cool with missing this one but my days off got me through the weekend as well as spending time with my Nieces. That said the weekend after the 4th was not the best time to set it off.

is there a system that an AI can deck test decks in a series of mock battles for you and give you a win/loss graph?

So I've had a big kick for Dinosaur Tribal since Ixalan and had a Commander deck commanded by either Gishath, Sun's Avatar, or the Hascon Grimlock card depending on the group wanting me to play him or not. Gishath is a bit slow to get out and not the best synergy in the late game. But the new Commander precons have me jazzed at the possibilities with Atla Palani, Nest Tender. Basic stats are't too impressive being a 2/3 Human Shaman for 1RGW but her abilities...

 

For 2 mana and tapping her she puts out a 0/1 egg token with defender. Again not super impressive but while shes on the battlefield any egg that dies let's you reveal the top cards of your deck until you hit a creature and put it onto the battlefield and put any other cards revealed on the bottom of your deck in any order. So a nice way to cheat out the elder dinos like Gishath, or a Gigantosaurus by chump blocking.

 

But add in M20's Marauding Raptor and the eggs die as they come out! it's problematic for smaller dinos and every creature that comes out will come out weakened, but great for enrage triggers.Need to add in some defense boosting enchantments maybe.That way the small fry may see play. Also might be fun to add in a Dragons Egg or other Egg creature cards within the WGR color wheelhouse because they would also trigger Alta's ability. I'll probably still get creamed by the others at the store but I love the idea of just putting out Zetalpa for 2 mana possibly.

So Wizards continues their year of Cash Grabs with something both ingenious and completely stupid. Secret Lair sets.

Pretty much kind of sets similar to the Signature Spellbook series or such with 5 alternate art reprint cards with a couple of alternate art counters thrown in too each set will retail between 30 to 40 dollars. First big no thank you there.

But it gets worse they start going on sale only one day at a time only through Wizards own webstore. Supposedly unlimited quantities for that day, but again one day only. They have a bundle of all seven sets available for $200 as Well

Secret Lair Bundle (all seven drops) - 12/2, 9am PT, $199.99
Bitterblossom Dreams - 12/3, 9am PT
Eldraine Wonderland - 12/4, 9am PT
Restless in Peace - 12/5, 9am PT
Seeing Visions - 12/6, 9am PT
<explosion sounds> - 12/7, 9am PT
Kaleidoscope Killers - 12/8, 9am PT
OMG KITTIES! - 12/9, 9am PT, $39.99


And its that last one that kills me. They used OMG KITTIES! as their example. And its filled with adorable art work versions of Regal Caracal, Miri, Arahbo, and cute tokens and ahhhhhhhh.

I hate Wizards for playing on my love of adorable kitties.

Edit: and it gets worse! Bitterblossom Dreams is just Bitterblossom with 4 fairy tokens, Eldraine Wonderland is just one of each Snowland with Snow Eldraine Art, and Seeing Visions is 4 copies of Serum Vision each with unique art. That is some straight up greedy bs.

At least the others arent as bad. Kaleidoscopic Killers is a 3 card set containing Sliver Overlord, the Ur Dragon and Reaper King. All three are decent Commanders. Explosion Sounds is a collection of five Goblin cards but no legendary characters. Restless in Peace is a toss up. Its just Bloodghast, Life from the Loam and Golgari Thug. At 10 per card or more though it seems too steep. The only two I feel are a decent buy are the Kaleidoscopic Killers and Kitties!
There are times Sliver Overlord alone costs more than what this set costs. And well just Kitties! Could of stuck an Ajani in though.

Just got sucked back in again.... Built a 'Rat' command deck, Reworking existing commanders... with only my Glissa infect deck being ready.

Merfolk and Wizards never being finished in the first place... Markov finished but not shuffled... Angel/Dragon/Demon stomp and Gorgon 7's under overhaul.

And in the process... I get sucked into making 2 more decks X(

Was just going to stick to throne, but went for a pack of 2020.  Pulled a Legendary Sphinx that makes folks lose the game.

So people who bought the full set of Secret Lairs today in the Seattle area got personal WOTC delivery service within hours. Seems each Lair has another previously unannounced bonus. A physical foil copy of a Stained Glass Planeswalker card from the War of the Spark set previously only digital on Arena. Most of the sets seem randomized on what one you get but OMG Kitties! seems locked with Ajani, and the Seeing Visions set with Ashiok.
