Magic: the Gathering in the UK
Pick three players and nominate one of them as your captain (for tiebreaking). 3 points for each win in the World Championship (including the Sunday).
That is some line up even without PV and LSV. How do we go about drafting it? Pick your top 3 including a captain for tie breaks and allow dupes? Or 1-8, 8-1?
magic.bluebones.net/ptdraft/ was quite fun at the last pro tour so let's do something similar for the World Championship.
just glad to see some victory for israel :)
loved the victory speech as well in hebrew...
"would you like to say anything to those watching at home in Jerusalem?"
"good morning, or good evening whatever time it is there now... *asking offscreen* anyone know what time it is there at the moment?" - gets cut off with a 'thank you' - and discussion moves on.
inspiring words !
Also, how was James Mills not invited to this event?!
As discussed in some detail yesterday, the coverage is perfect in every way. But of course we are Magic players so we would never complain about anything anyway.
Mills was invited but he shuffled his plane ticket into his library.
Remember the play in the finals with an arbor elf + spirit dancer on one side, vs snap mage with electrolyse on the other?
I'm watching the GP coverage, and they've got a section with Shahar and Reid discussing the match. Shahar said he should have killed the spiritdancer! Boom!
Should he have killed it on his turn, then, to prevent him drawing a card?
