(A Random Post)

This made my jaw drop. Yes, yes, I play this game; it was an integral part of my childhood — it shaped my logic, my vocabulary and my imagination. Now sure, I haven’t played much since grade nine, but since then I have indulged in this guilty pleasure more often than you’d think. When I first saw it, I figured they were releasing a promo set or something…but nope. Maybe the new look would only be for Magic Online…nope. Then I checked the calendar … nope, its not April 1st… could it be so? After I regained consciousness, I looked at the pictures again, and imagined them alongside the older cards. Eeeek. But I do have to agree that the new look is kind of stylish. Sure, on the one hand, there’s tradition and nostalgia, but on the other hand, I’m impressed the Wizards doesn’t let those things hold them back from making Magic a better game. (Other landmarks: New Sixth Edition rules; canning Mono/Continuous artifacts; canning banding; overhauling creature types; new reprint policy and many others.) So these cards are prettier and cleaner. The art is still amazing so there seems to be nothing to complain about. If you didn’t look at them the first time look at them now.

Destined to fight the world's evil, The WAMBAG endures massive battles involving impossible stunts, races on horse-pulled carriages, and the desecration of enchanting medieval castles (all done with dizzying computer graphics). Not only does the eye candy keep on coming, the tongue-in-cheek writing and deep Transylvanian accents perfect the film with a dose of dark humor.

Tagboard (!?!)

Apparently PHP7 doesn't support the same function calls I wrote in 2008? I should fix this at some point.
