Ever since I started #Magic365, I’ve been waiting for this one to come up to see if they’d say exactly this. Ah, perfect. #Magic #mtg

Magic History question (kinda): I play with my lands above my other permanents. I thought this came from the Revised rule book, but I have friends who also learned during Revised and play with their lands below their other permanents. Any insight into this? Thanks! P.S. You’re awesome :D

I believe that was what was described in one of the early rule books. I’m not sure which one, but that sounds right to me - it’s likely that your friends just changed their habits over time. :)

Any GavInquirers know for sure how the Revised rulebook showed it?

So, Summoner's Pact in Ascendancy is bad because when you're going off you already have a creature, and the pact is not a cantrip since it only gets you a creature, correct?

Hmmm. It actually could be somewhat reasonable, since you can loot away the creature you get and be sort of up a card. I could see playing 1-2 maybe.

I'm going to try to build a deck around Turtle McDurdle. Wish me luck!

Any chance we will ever see Goblin Recruiter unbanned in Legacy?

I’d say it’s pretty unlikely. It’s an extremely poorly developed card, time intensive, and not fun overall.

I'm building a casual monored aggro deck. My curve tops out at three mana, but I have 12 total cards at that cost. About how many lands should I be running?

My first guess would be 22.

Pacts interact favorably with Sundial of the Infinite, though, so you could build a deck around that. Spend all your turns on your opponent's with instants and flash stuff.

There you go! Have at it, GavInquirers. :)

dimir-charmer asked
Have you ever had a draft deck that you loved, but lost every game with?

Yes. Absolutely, yes.

It was great meeting you today! You're a lot more calm than I was expecting. I think MaRo has given me unrealistic expectations for Wizards employees. :-P

Using Mark as a baseline for anything can be dangerous. ;)
