.byes for event first the Won
So my Android tablet version of Chrome actually types everything backwards in the compose window. I wasn't drunk when I typed this.
I had assumed it would go to the name I gave with DCI #, but the more I thought about it I don't want to do that because there could be a risk of my friend being 86'ed from GenCon or (possibly?) DCI sanctions against me.
Yeah I wouldn't go down that road. You could maybe use generic event tickets. Get into the hall on a badge, but it'd be depressing to go 4-0 and get it thrown out. I don't think you'd be in hot water with the DCI given you entered the event on your own but only badge holders are supposed to enter events or buy generics. All of this is the reason it's great champs was excavated from Gencon. It's a pain in the ass to get to and organize.
@smmenen Well, people can definitely play what they want more often on MTGO than anywhere else (besides 100% proxy and cockatrice, but for sanctioned, competitive play it's MTGO).
The other thing is that card availability on MTGO is instantaneous. Let's say I play one of my terrible brews and get frustrated with the results. Then I see how Thiim's awesome MUDrazi deck has been crushing people. So I add my entire deck to my trade binder, get a few hundred tickets, and buy Thiim's deck card for card. That process is as quick as five minutes (if you want to scout the best deal it could take longer).
Sleeving is faster on MTGO also.
Also shameless plug. If you are looking for some heroic Marvel miniatures action I am running a FASERIP Tactics Friday A.M.
It's a tactical minis game based on the old school Marvel SHRPG from the 80's before the internet ruined the world.
I'm not going to GenCon itself but I live about a half an hour away; if there are any after hours Vintage I'm down. I might have to see if I can borrow a badge to play in a trial.
Don't bother. The bye will go to the name on the badge.
I miss my Illusionary Mask. I want that to go back to the original functionality!
Eh, the masks printed text says 'Summon'. For those that want the 'uncounterable' Mask back I think I disagree with the creators intent. He used the word Summon to mean cast quite a bit. Mask essentially was a fake card. Its Unllusionary Mask and honestly it requires hidden information, possibly a judge at a sanctioned event.
Do I think it would be cool as a quasi Aether Vial yeah ... would it break vintage, maybe, probably not the artifact hate is savage you can revoke it, etc.. Plus we have Cavern of Souls. On the Dreadnought side we've got Orb now.
Looks like your connection to The Mana Drain was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
