I'm just using the free trial on Project Alpha, and happened to check out the episode of Spellslingers out today. Joseph Gordon-Levitt has a pretty decent collection. Gotta love Timming all your opponents creatures. The game reminded me of what it was like when I first started back in the 90s. I'd recomend giving it a watch if you have a membership.

Considering how much flack WotC has been getting for card quality, the least they could have done was check to make sure the preview card they would show on camera wasn't warped. You had one job Wizards.

Could some please explain why Sekimoto scooped game 1? I didn't see any POs or Mentors in his grave, and he had the vault lock.

@chronatog I put the card in the row right in front of my mana producers. My next upkeep I move them closer to the red zone.

Good to know it's actually a rule. Mind you I've always played that way since I started playing ages ago.

What people really find strange is that I play all my cards facing my opponent and always have. I just figure I already know what everything in my deck does, so it just makes it easier for my opponent to read the cards. Anybody else do this?

edit: interesting. As per 4.6 this is illegal. "Each untapped permanent should face its controller." I've never been called on it. Perhaps because it says "should" instead of "must"?
