If your school has security cameras, you may be able to ask and see who did it.

((That’s the problem. They don’t have security cameras in the student parking lot because they decided to just use the football field parking for us, so not only do we have to walk a bitch long way, they’ve restricted the senior prank to only that parking lot. We’re screwed out of a decent area to park, and this shit can happen, and they’ve got people who do one patrol around the parking lot a half-hour after school starts, and that’s it. People who don’t have a first period class don’t get caught or anything. Everything has to be reported by the students. I’m practically screwed here unless I add an unexcused absence to my damn record to miss first period because my school won’t excuse me for their idiotic security detail.))

//I don’t know what to say that can help.  If there’s any paint on the back right corner of your car, you may be able to get a lead on the car.  Otherwise, someone else’s car should be sporting a similar injury.  Keep an eye open for it, that’s all i can suggest.

//I hope you find a solution to the problem!

maro, i love abzan but i have a flavor beef with outlast: that creatures who use it can't block next turn. i don't mind sacrificing the attack, but it seems like creatures who outlast should be able to block. did you play around with it a lot in design?

markrosewater:

If you are outlasting, you are giving up doing anything else. That’s the interesting strategic choice.

After reading your article, "Khan Do Attitude," I can't help but wonder if "Mongseng" is just another name for the plane of Tarkir, that the clans have long forgotten. Any chance this is true?

markrosewater:

Tarkir does look an awful lot like Mongseng…

Time travel will turn it into Mongseng.  Calling it right now.

//”Oh Outlast is a terrible mechanic you have to tap your creatures and it’s a sorcery wah and you leave yourself defenseless wah!”

//I’m sorry I can’t hear you over the sound of our ELEPHANT HOUSES.

"I want my son Kairon to get to know you, Dirge. Come to think of it, I need to get to know you myself..."

askchibinocturne:

That’s enough info.

Thresh chuckles.  “Indeed.  I think my son likes you ,Dirge.”

New friend is AWESOME!  New friend is balloon friend!

ABZAAAN :D

//YES FRIEND.  WE WILL OUTLAST THEM ALL.  THEY MAY WIN A FEW BATTLES, BUT WE WILL WIN THE WAR WITH OUR ELEPHANT HOUSES!

No idea what you've been spamming, but mun is adorable being excited from it lol

//Nnn, positive feedback thank you so much anon!

//What mun is really excited about is Khans of Tarkir, the latest set in the trading card game Magic the Gathering.  Specifically, he is excited about the Abzan Houses, a WBG (white, black, green) clan whose focus is on the late game.  Mun’s playstyle is all about the late game, and now he’s found the perfect mechanic & clan for himself :)

//They adopt orphans from other clans and take care of them as a familial unit.  Their mechanic, Outlast, allows them to steadily grow stronger as the game progresses.  And the cards revealed so far are spectacular.  I’m gonna share some art on why they’re awesome.

//This is their clan symbol.  In Tarkir, people revered dragons, but also hunted them to extinction :P So each of the clans has taken up a symbol of power from the dragon.  Abzan’s is the scale: tough alone, though as one of many it is indestructible.

//This is their Khan, Anafenza.  She rides goats into battle.  Your arguments are invalid.

//This is their armor.  Look how strong it is.  And stylish, too.  Abzan dresses for success.

//We take our houses with us in the Abzan.  We are never left defenseless.  We are mighty.

//Yeah, mun’s very excited :)

To my followers…

//Sorry for all the Khans of Tarkir spam

//I’m really excited, okay? Q^Q

((I only want to figure out Temur because of it’s bear-punching fatty ways. What I really want to make is Jeskaimerica. Xiaolin Shit storm. Rapid-casting Cantonese.))

//People are really gonna like the Heroic + Prowess wombo-combo in standard.  My little brother’s really excited about that.

Pppffftttt naya edh for life!




I say as I have a bug(can’t remember the clans, too lazy to look up), mono black, and 5 color deck…

//BUG is Sultai.  Currently the only deck I have assembled right now (that I’ve made) is my Dimir EDH/Commander one with Mirko Vosk as the general, currently untested.  Of the remaining ones, one is the Monster Deck from Heroes vs Monsters, and the other one is the M15 Price of Glory intro deck, which has taught me to love the life-loss aspect of Black

(( I feel the need to point out that Tombstalker was and still is used in competitive Modern and Legacy, such as this BUG Aggro list. It’s a very mana-efficient threat and a fine way to break parity in a mid-late top-deck war, akin to Tarmogoyf.

That said, the Delve card they revealed seems pretty bad. Sooo… ))

//They revealed another one in their Khans of Tarkir Mechanics Preview.

//Unless the defending creature has absorb, I don’t see the need for a creature with deathtouch to have a power any greater than one.  The defense is fine, but not for 7B.  Yeah, I’m sticking with Abzan.

//Besides, I need to play more W and G.

//Your creatures are all about power 4 or greater?

//I can’t hear you over the 8 +1/+1 on my creatures, and the bonuses they get from them :)

i-enjoy-burning-things

((yeah, spending mana and tapping them to do so is sooo fast))

//But they get first strike.  They may even get lifelink, deathtouch, trample: what then?  Oh I see, you think we won’t get the time to Outlast you, that your power 4 creatures will be out before then.

//I’ll be damned if this isn’t a defender.

//You may win a few early battles, but we will win the war.

Can you please explain why is Outlast sorcery speed only? It seems to me like it could have been a nice defensive mechanic at instant speed, but right now it's basically taking mana you could have used on more blockers or actual win-cons to just turn off your own blockers/attackers for the sake of giving them a very small upgrade. Is there something I am missing here?

markrosewater:

Yes. Games are about decision making. Forcing you to commit on your turn to whether you want to use a creature for defense or grow it for later in the game is an interesting decision. Always getting to do both, is not.

//Abzan is about the long haul, @ohgodwhyaretherenogoodnamesleft .  That name’s gonna be too long.  Can I call you Desmond?  Thanks.

//Here’s the link to the Khans of Tarkir Mechanics Preview.  Now here we have a 2/1 1W creature.  Outlast it, and it gains first strike — as does every other creature you control that has Outlasted.  It’s an investment.  Spend a bit of extra mana now, get rewarded in the long run.

//Let’s say you’re against a Jeskai player.  They can cast their spells and get a temporary boost for a bit of mana.  You as the Abzan get that bonus permanently — and more.  The Temur’s giants are fine in their own way, but you can make a 2/1 dog able to take on a 6/6 creature with ease!  And as Abzan, you’ll probably have some good defenders to tie you over while you have your armies Outlast your opponents (it’s not like anyone’s gonna be running a token deck —right?)

//And they said there’ll be other cards that give a bonus to creatures with +1/+1 counters on them.  We have a first strike giver, now what about one with lifelink?  Or since there’s a little black, deathtouch?  That’ll give something to tie you over to the late game!  And once you’ve Outlasted enough, give ‘em trample with green.  Now you’re talking!

//This is the point of the Abzan: They may win a few battles, but we will win the war.

//I hope that helps, Desmond :)

((Temur Frontier, man. Gotta go with the Bear Punch))

//But that’s the only thing we know about them!  That and they’re about getting large creatures into play somehow.  We’ll just have to wait until the Monday preview articles to find out :)

((Yeee. My play style is either swarm like shit or getting one guy jacked as shit. Saprolings with a Mycoloth boss is the funniest deck I have.))

//Mine is “I have some good cards and a plan but just give me some time to play/get to them”.  Note that this is when I can actually build a decent deck  Hopefully, I can now do this with Abzan.
