@Brass-Man this makes totally sense to me... i have been in those situations in control mirrors where you just sculpt your perfect 7 when a standstill is on board and in that case Emy should win the game. thanks for the reply. still i think a more usefull card like ponder is more suitable for me.. i might just be a bad player but still ... the % of games in wich ill be willing to have emrakul in my hand vs the games in wich i needed a cantrip is big for me
@Khahan they are different rounds whats surprising about the fact some1 approach them differently? I dont understand you.
In the first round he has everything in front and he could make it. In the other one he has nothing to win except the personal pride so he can laugh at his opponents face and say i dont care you got more points i bet you bitch. Ego is dangerous. And often is better to not listen to him.
@BobbyVictory ok. So you dont care if its permited or not. Just want to know if is ethical or not. See? This is the problem because the answer could be yes or no depending on who you ask. We all have different points of view and the same scenario generates infinite outcomes depending on the observer. So again, was it ethical? You will never get an absolute answer for this. Dont feel alone youll find plenty of people thinking like you. But dont be surprised neither when you find people with the opposite idea. But guess what. If you ask is it allowed? You will get the same answer. Is it within the rules?
Now, if you want the rules to be changed or rivisited thats a totally different topic. The world is plenty of "unfair" things that are supported by the law. Deal with it. Move ahead. Or change the rules.
