What if WotC just announced that [X Card] is now legal?

Ralph Ciarlanti

Rather than banning cards, Wizards could release a statement along the lines of "B&R update: Pithing needle is now legal in standard". I think that this approach would be better received by the player community than banning cards.

Nathan Holt and Shawn Kornhauser, of Walk the Planes fame, have been doing a new video series called Enter The Battlefield with vignettes focusing on community folks like Christine Sprankle in the episode on cosplay and for Paul Cheon and The Professor from Tolarian Community College subtitled “creators.” Now we know how impressive these guys are, and how awesome it would be to be a subject yourself, what would your episode be about?

It was found out this week that the screenwriters originally working on the film are no longer working on the Magic: The Gathering movie, and he doesn’t know exactly where it’s at right now. So since the movie seems lost in the Multiverse, where do you think it’ll end up now?

Q & A


The Finisher

Merriam-Webster’s English Dictionary has added a brand new word to their dictionary: sheeple, a (port-man-toe) portmanteau of “sheep” and “people.” Everybody loves a good portmanteau, so if you can, help the English language to continue to evolve and move forward with a portmanteau of your own.
