Those familiar with the Weatherlight Saga will know the full joke.
This has happened to me twice. The second time I was one of the Vigor players. It’s an dumb thing to do.
What’s so dumb about it? They both trade and are shuffled into the libraries.
"Attacking at each other" != "Attacking each other with the Vigor’s". They’re just succeeding in super beefing their Vigor, but as the attacker you run the risk of beefing the defending player more than yourself. Eh, it’s not horrible though, depending how backed in to a corner you are.
If damage would be dealt to a creature you control other than Vigor, prevent that damage. Put a +1/+1 counter on that creature for each 1 damage prevented this way.
When Vigor is put into a graveyard from anywhere, shuffle it into its owner’s library.”
The vigors themselves don’t get buffed, so I don’t really get it.
Oh, I misread, guess it really is stupid. The attacker succeeds in buffing their creatures, but now they’re tapped. The defender now has a clearer shot, with stronger creatures.
I meant “dumb” as in everyone else is going to hate you for how out hand creatures are going to get. Dumb=fun for you and me and no one else if you play right… then just me because I got the upper hand over the other vigor player.
I think MtG is making me more violent. Just the other day, my coworker, Garrik, told me he had pulled a Sorin and, instead of asking if he was considering trading, I asked, “hey, can I kill you and take all your stuff?”
This video, made by a Magic: The Gathering fansite, was meant to show you some of the cards available in an old 1993 starter pack for the game. It was not meant to show you what happens when a grown man finds a Magic card inside it worth up to $30,000.
Well then… this would be a great story, except the guy in the video is not me.
Rule of thumb:
Once is an accident, remedy the miscommunication
Twice is “Don’t be that guy”
Thrice is likely sociopath with potential serial killer leaning (stay away from my friends, me, … and my pets)
