Ultimate is a poor echo of Erayo. Not one for type I I feel.

OK, the spoiler itself isn't anything Vintage worthy, it's WW4 for exile all mens and conditional angel token, nothing to see here.

However...

Looks like the Hasbro translation team didn't quite hit the mark, mixing up aigu and circonflexe accents and giving the card a different meaning altogether:




I'm calling it Wrath of Cod.

Was going to be more enthusiastic until I saw the "tapped" element to second ability. Without the tapped clause, would have been worth consideration even with the awkward colours. May be playable elsewhere, but not current vintage environment.

Yup, Trix is the epitome of taking gravel and making one of the most powerful decks of the era. Similarly the trap (very short lived) used janky cards to amazing effect.

It won't, it seems to be cleverly worded to avoid visions and other suspend abuse. Unless there's a janky interaction with another card that lets you avoid counters, but that seems a stetch.

Nope, not pre masques rare...

Oddly was looking at the old thread just the other day (I bookmarked it a while ago)

I used to play a fun candelabra/capsize build years back - not the best deck, but hilarious. This seems to have the fun with more consistency.

Tricky to rewind rules clock to 94 and allow chaos orb sadly.

Played in several proxy touries, never used one personally.

Urban dictionary is your friend re ski equipment, ski instructor, rock climbing et al.

They did this a couple of years back in the UK. Couple of vintage proxy series were nipped in the bud to the great disappointment of the community. Shop had to dissociate itself entirely, meaning couldn't use staff, venue, reporter etc.

Shame preacher still targets

Hope you get a better turnout for this one guys.
14  Eternal Formats / Workshop-Based Prison / Re: Shop Depths on: December 01, 2015, 03:24:02 pm
Nope, certainly can't use workshop mana to pay for 'void.

Still remember the brief but amusing period when ritual wasn't countered by void as it was a mana source.

Wow, a voice from the darkness (ie the days I was a lurker)
16  Eternal Formats / General Strategy Discussion / Re: [OGW] Wastes: Barry's Land is REAL? on: November 18, 2015, 01:26:21 pm
Will be interesting to see if it's legit. Barry's land has been deferred a lot.

Proxy should be used for viewing online content from another country Wink
18  Eternal Formats / General Strategy Discussion / Re: [C15] Mizzix's Mastery on: November 07, 2015, 05:01:01 pm
Precautionary preorder of playset at discount rate. Could be $10 wasted, or could be a bargain.
19  Eternal Formats / Europe / Re: Bazaar of Moxen 2016 Vintage - any info yet on: November 07, 2015, 12:57:53 pm
Winner, thanks
20  Eternal Formats / Europe / Re: Bazaar of Moxen 2016 Vintage - any info yet on: November 07, 2015, 10:51:40 am
NYSE isn't something I'd considered tbh, bit of a longer trip, I can make the rest by train Wink
21  Eternal Formats / Europe / Re: Bazaar of Moxen 2016 Vintage - any info yet on: November 07, 2015, 10:50:33 am
Yeah, had a feeling Legacy was the focus, but if there are type I side events, they'll get a turnout.

Still miss the big misc type I's I used to just rock up to in places like Paris and Piacenza.
22  Eternal Formats / Europe / Bazaar of Moxen 2016 Vintage - any info yet on: November 07, 2015, 03:03:19 am
Just wondering if there's any info regarding Vintage at Bazaar of Moxen in 2016 as yet? Believe Legacy is the main format, but will there be Vintage at some of the qualifiers and open Vintage at the big final event?

Just hoping to organise and book some things for next year, and as I've not been to any big Vintage events for a few years, am keen to get to one like BoM.

Any info much appreciated.

Thanks, will check out trains, fights and hotels to see if this is vaguely practical/affordable. Not been on a Euro Type I jaunt since before the offspring arrived...

Cheers
24  Eternal Formats / Europe / Re: [Announcement] BBQ Proxy Vintage in Mühltal, Germany - Sep 19th 2015 on: September 03, 2015, 02:39:50 pm
Incidentally, how easy would it be to get to the venue by public transport, and where would be the best place to fly to/saty?

Cheers

No caverns and/or fetches to thin? See the reasoning for path rather than plow, but they're never getting a land out with plow.

I emphasised the non human elemtn on a FB discussion. Less of a thing for modern players I guess
29  Eternal Formats / General Strategy Discussion / Re: [ORG] Honored Hierarch on: June 27, 2015, 02:43:52 pm
Not a fan. If you make it t4, it does nothing, if you make it turn one and it might be a threat, it gets countered for 2 life.

Did I imagine something about it in an early Duellist? Threw them all out a few years back when I semi quit...
