Magic: the Gathering Memes

This blog is dedicated posting Memes that I create or reblogging ones that I find.

And my goal here is entertainment regarding all things Magic: the Gathering... with some possible exceptions.

Enjoy.

Seriously, now he decides to stop procrastinating and/or start caring about Zendikar?
((Then again, the Magic mythos has never truly been the pinnacle of literary fantasy, so maybe Sorin isn’t entirely to blame.))

He did kind of have to deal with some stuff at home first. Family issues and all that.

And not only that, just because it’s been 3 years worth of blocks doesn’t mean it hasn’t been like, 3 months in Magic time.

Wizards have canonically said that the Eldrazi have been free for years (although I think it was only two).

there was that whole ‘restore order and balance and piss off a lot of vampires’ in his world first
and probably dodge some other planeswalkers before they try to guilt trip him about the Phyrexians

That would be acceptable except that’s not why he abandoned Zendikar, and he had no influence on the events of Innistrad as far as I know.

I can’t quite put my finger on it, but something about this reminds me that Magic: the Gathering is meant for 13+ years old.

For those that don’t know, Retraction Helix is a common instant card in Born of the Gods. With Khans of Tarkir, there are infinite combos that are going to be enabled with Khans becomes legal. Am I too concerned? Not yet because combos hinging on 1-2 cards can be dicey, but the potential is there. I think the combos will work better in Modern anyway.
There’s two combos right now: one with Jeskai Ascendancy and one with Altar of the Brood.
Alter of the Brood combo:  http://www.reddit.com/r/magicTCG/comments/2gk8j4/mill_is_back_in_standard_baby_warning_bad_combo/
Jeskai Ascendancy infinite power/mana combo (best I could find at the moment): http://tappedout.net/mtg-combos/jeskai-ascendancy+retraction-helix+tormods-crypt/


I do love me some bad infinite combos.

hafta agree with OP, don’t fuck this up for everyone pleasewith that said, vaporsnag>retraction helix IMO

Whatever. Stoneblade was one of my favorite standards ever. SPIKE SMASH YOUR PUNY METAGAME. (I know a lot of people disliked it cuz it was all mirror matches, but highly skill intensive mirrors are something I like a lot.)

I got by just fine in the CAWBlade era. Little known fact that I exploited: if you throw an Eldrazi at the problem hard enough, it tends to solve the problem. While Mono-G Eldrazi wasn’t perfect against Caw-Blade, it sure fared better than the rest of my non-Caw Blade friends.
That said, degenerate formats, regardless of skill level, make Wizards lose money because diversity isn’t boring, and not boring > skill when it comes to building a large long term fan base.
