Its probably because she has Willem Defoe's mouth. I always felt like if her smile showed a little bit of gums it wouldn't look anywhere near as strange.
That said, I am very happy that she is a little creepy...
As has often been the case in the past I question Jeremy Beaver's deck choice.
Also Joe has proven you can't fuck shops, too many burrs and metal splinters.
@smmenen I'd rather see channel first over fastbond, given fastbond's much wider range for abuse. Still, I too would like to experiment with it off the list. Kudos for proposing something most would be shocked at.
I was looking through some of my old vintage files and came across this, seemed too good to not repost:
The Epic Tale of Vintage
~ Screen Play by @Harlequin
The Mob: Holy Crap I hate Card-X, Heres a Huge list of reasons why!
Top-8: Relax it's not that bad
The Mob: you just wait and see, they will restrict card-x and we will all laugh at you. You just wait until the 1st... Ahhh hahahaha
The DCI: ..... no changes
The Mob: /cry
~ Repeat ActI like 2-5 times
The Hopefuls: This time... this time they will change!
The Mob: The DCI doesn't care, won't care, and never has cared. Besides were comfortable the way the format is now. This truely is the golden age of vintage in perfect harmony of balance of and luck
The DCI: SURPRIZE!! /slap
The Hopefuls: Hahaha Great, now I can play my pet-deck again! I support these changes.
The Mob: OMG-STFU-KTHXBBQ. Its the end of the world, Don't you see!? Here's a list of 1000 reasons why the DCI is stupid....
The Mob: ... In summary the format is much more about luck now than skill. So We Quit, I'm taking my cards and going home to play world of warcraft.
The people who actually did quit from the last R/B Update: Oh damn! This looks new and interesting, I'm going to start playing again!
Crazy Eyes: Following this logic let's just ban every card other than Swamp and Relentless Rats!
The Mob: Wait! I have an idea, lets make our own B/R list that ignore these changes.
TMD: That will NEVER work. Not in a million years.
The Mob: who cares, some of us - lets break off and agrue about -that- for a while, and prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that it will never work in a million years.
TMD: You have fun with that. And don't worry about making a mess we've got our bold-red ink and lock buttons ready.
The Mob: The rest of us, lets start a petition ~
Colectively, we Hate you. We hope that you get attacked by bees, and anyone who comes to sees you and trys to help is also attacked by bees. You are stupid and smell bad. Here is a list of 1000 reasons why we think you are stupid.
PS - you won't get another dime outa me until you make a change... not that I every buy anything from you anyway"
The Mob: There that'll show them... wait nm we quit anyway no one cares anymore anyway.
Top-8: Later! Hrmmm.. now I have to come up with a deck to play. I can't play X, Y or Z... so I guess I just go back to card-W. Good ol' W...
The Mob: Damnit! WOW sucks I want to play magic again!
Top-8: Cool with me, lets see if you can beat D0u3le_Yuu.Dec
The Mob: F*ck Card-W, that's way overrated. Besides we have all this new design space now!
Top-8: Beat you again! That makes the score X-0-2. I'm in Top-8 again!
The Mob: Yeah well, its only because W is so stupidly O.P. and broken, and easy to win with, and requires no skill. It should be banned. You just wait and see, the next B/R list comes out on the 1st and I can't immagine they won't ban W. You just wait and see!!
~ Repeat from the begining until the rapture...
You can probably make a pretty good update to Oshawa Stompy thanks to vengevine, hooting mandrils and hollow one. A deck with wastes, basics, null rods and big creatures seems fun.
Interesting fuel for this conversation, re: rules changes and errata:
So does this mean that true believer/leyline of sanctity etc. will receive errata to say your planeswalkers also have hexproof? Good ol' rules change + errata policy that can't possibly catch all interactions.
Perspicacious Plundering Pirates
Create a colorless Treasure artifact token with "Tap, Sacrifice this artifact: Add one mana of any color to your mana pool.", then if you control twenty or more Treasures, you win the game.
Gravestorm (When you cast this spell, copy it for each permanent put into a graveyard this turn. You may choose new targets for the copies.)
Just a neat idea for a ritual effect in black's current flavor. Makes for interesting trade-offs in strategies. Do you run things (besides fetchlands) that sac themselves to power this? Do you run a bunch of weenie creatures along side wrath effects? Do you run petal and 4 mox opal + yawgwill and try to win with the alt wincon? Do you just store up 5 treasures for a later combo turn?
@blindtherapy You think so? I mean the point of them is that while they are fetchable they still cost life and a land drop. Otherwise they are just a crappy nonbasic land.
The effects are ones that would only affect eternal formats (except for blue and black) and they would serve to combat some of the ridiculously undercosted hate pieces and enablers printed over the years (sphere effects, revoker, RiP, pithing needle, chalice of the void, oath of druids, sneak attack, birthing pod, splinter twin etc.)
Plus in all formats these would have an large impact there are already answers to them in stifle, trickbind and teferi's response (and needle), and there are considerable drawbacks to running nonbasic lands.
What would the activation cost need to be in order to make them "fair"?
