Hate those cards. Straight out of hearthstone.

Are the LCV still recording vids? They used to make the best match-coverage there is.

And yes, the name-calling was uncalled for. I apologize for that.

Uhm, he's discrediting the winner based on circumstential evidence and indices that are impossible to defend one self against.

If someone tells that person x is beating his wife, even if he dont, it will stick - falsely - with a big group of people even if its not true and those kind of claims are impossible to defend against. Negative proof of evidence is nonsense.

I really like the addition of fleetwheel crushers, but was surprised that no one played the copter.
The second list looks more powerful and i like the way that both decks has turned out. I thought the decks would go more towards the traditional stax-route.

I won't attend, but i think the price pool are fantastic. Me and most people would rather win stuff like duals since its way easier to move on the second market rather then being stuck with a mox. Saying the price pool is from a legacy tournament is just nonsense.

Dont like doube masticore / squees and possible a 3rd wurmcoil.
I think myr battlesphere would be good in here.
Tangle wire is a great TNT card as well.

Not sure if playing white is game, but i could see one-ofs containment priest (SB) and ethersworn cannonist.

Maybe blood moon / magus of the moon?

Fetches:
-ball lightning
-groundbreaker
-blistering firecat

Yep, i'm sold. Buy your ball lightning before they'll be bought out.

Someone that spends $2m on wu-tang album can probably afford to drop 40k on a few lotuses.

He mentioned he's looking to spend $500k in the reddit thread.

Wow, very demoralizing.

Is the guy who lost the cards some kind of a dealer? I figure that the quantities he was carrying (6 AR, 7TW etc) were insane.
