This thread is for discussion of this week's Serious Fun, which goes live Tuesday morning on magicthegathering.com.
Need better games than these to get me interested in buying...

and indeed they would have to be some godly games for me to spend 10 bucks on 60 lands.
Has MTGO been 'pushed' more than usual lately?
This looks like a fun format, but I was shocked at the price.

I dont play MTGO yet (I used to play the free trial before it got upgraded and that stopped working), and something like this might get me into it... but I would be afraid of it becoming a slippery slope (a few cards here, an avatar there, a precon here etc etc). My budget only barely stretches to cover my paper cards (and only if I half close my eyes and scrunch my nose up), so I cant afford to take the risk of getting hooked on digital cards as well as paper ones...

Fair article though.

That makes no sense to me. If they spelled the ability out on the card in full then it would not be allowed in a mono-black Commander deck, but because they used a keyword to save space it is allowed? ~ Tim
Yup, just like you can have Birds of paradise in a mono green deck but not Noble Hierarch. YAY COLOR IDENTITY

Is algebra really that difficult?
Survey says yes.

You want to make a milky drink. You squeeze a cow.
I love this description. Like the cows are sponges filled with milk. I can see it all Nick Parks claymation-style with the cow's eyes bugging out momentarily as a giant farmer squeezes it like a squeaky dog toy, and milk shoots out of it.

"Just signing up for Magic Online lets you use the required starting deposit to grab the event deck and go"

That quote was based on old information, and I didn't catch it on the way out. The article has been updated accordingly--apologies for any confusion.
