"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.)

@  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.

@  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.

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"

New level of rarity I guess, which include some fan-favorite cards they don't like to reprint often.

I just dislike how they had to majorly retcon for there to be any natives at all on Mirrodin, and how hard creative took a dump on poor Slobad and Glissa. The New Phyrexia/Mirrodin Pure thing being a marketing lie is obnoxious but nothing that unexpected or outrageous.

Just got back from the prerelease. Only won about 5 out of 11 games but for me that's not too bad. Running a tri color deck didn't help as it usually was not giving me the one type of mana for the cards in my hand. And the one card I wanted to play I only got the chance to cast once and was countered hard. But come on who doesn't want to see this happy smiling.....

I'll be first to admit I'm not the greatest MtG player and it's always been more about the fiction behind the cards rather than the game itself that kept me playing. So when todays spoiler previews for commander came I was beyond happy to see a Weatherlight crew member make a comeback with new artwork.

Now that vehicles are a thing though can I get a new version of the Weatherlight please :love

So the Aether Revolt Prerelease is this weekend. My pulls were a bit lackluster this time. Pulled the Green and White Expertise cards, along with a Glint-Sleeve Siphoner, and Baral, Chief of Compliance out of my AER packs and Marionette Master and Multiform Wonder from the two Kaladesh packs. Foil Promo was Disallow.

 

I went to the afternoon tournament since I had all weekend off but was a pretty small turnout. Only about 17 or so, so I was the odd guy out round one unfortunately. But I did about my norm. Since I got mostly Black and Blue that's what I ran and had some luck with some stall and Artifact damage. Getting a couple Consulate Turrets out saved my butt in round 3

Round One: Odd man out

Round Two :1-2

Round Three: 2-0

Round Four: 0-2.

 

No extra prizes for me but at least I got some wins in..

So amid all the video game Hype Magic announced a good slate of whats to come in the next year leading into the 25th Anniversary
 
So Amonkhet's second set Hour of Devastation is coming in Mid July with the prerelease tourneys the weekend of July 8th Nicol Bolas confirmed as a  Planeswalker if we didn't already think it wasn't going to happen. But he's one of the two featured Planeswalker in the PW Decks

 

In release Order

 

Commander 2017 -  August 2017

 

Ixalan - September 2017

 

Merfolk vs. Goblins Duel Deck set - November 2017

 

Iconic Masters set- November 2017

 

Explorers of Ixalan -November 2017

 

From the Vault: Transform - November 2017

 

UNSTABLE - December 2017

 

Rivals of Ixalan - January 2018

 

Masters 25 - March 2018

 

Dominaria - April 2018

 

Magic 2019 Core Set - July 2018

 

So we seem to be mixing up the sets again over the two block set they have done lately. Ixalan will have two large sets and one small set like the old three block rotation. They have said we won't necessarily stay on a Plane for any certain amount of sets anymore and will follow however the story they want to tell pulls. This also allows them to brake up the Gatewatch a bit more and possibly feature other New and returning Planeswalkers. The amount of stuff between November and January is crazy. Crazy enough for another UN Joke set. :D Plus the return to Dominaria is interesting. Not sure I've been that into it since the Invasion cycle but of course it's a good nod to for the 25th anniversary.

Both Favorites of mine too. It's really when WotC started a heavy push into the lore it seems. I still have the Tempest short story anthology book. And Urza is my Jedi's name on SW:TOR, as well as a few Pokemon Trainers over the years.I've really been on a big Magic kick the last couple years. Especially with Amonkhet and the Egyptian like theme it has going.I think I've bought more Amonkhet than any set in the last decade.

Heck you realize we are getting a new set practically every two months just with the actual expansions. Usually we've gotten a break between Sept/Oct and January But I think they are trying to push out Ixalan so they can set up Dominaria as the 25th anniversary block. It might be a bit more spaced out between Rivals of Ixalan and Dominaria but it's crazy to me how rapid fire things are in the coming year.

    Hello, world

So, it's been announced that Cryptic Studios (Champions Online, Star Trek Online, Neverwinter MMO) is working on an MMO based on M:tG.

 

I await further news with baited breath.  There's real potential there, but it could turn sour really quickly.  It really depends on how well they incorporate the feel and trappings of the M:tG universe.  If it's just another generic fantasy MMO that name drops iconic M:tG elements, than no deal. 

 

Ideally, I'd very much like if it would ape the original Guild Wars a bit, factoring in its deep skill/spell gathering system and "deckbuilding" toolkit.  Addictive and meaningful collecting mechanics I feel are key to achieving some of M:tG's appeal and identity.  Don't be so faithful that it just becomes M:tGO with avatars and a worldmap, though.

 

It would be very cool though if it were expansive enough to let you explore the card game's iconic settings, especially the more exotic ones like Ravnica, Zendikar, or even Kamigawa. 

 

So, tentatively excited.
