This thread is for discussion of this week's Top Decks, which goes live Thursday morning on magicthegathering.com.
Another Delver win... Really Wizards? When the frell are you going to do something about Delver already? This is getting 'effing stupid.
To KurtCrane: How do you play a second genesis for 9?...Maybe I am just missing a subtle nuance
Maybe I am just missing a subtle nuance
Yes, the Stack.
Whenever an ability happens, it goes on the stack so that players (both of them) can respond to it. When multiple abilities trigger at the same time (say by a bunch of stuff entering the battlefield), they all go on the stack in the order of that player's choice. Then they come off one at a time, with the ability for either player to respond before each of them.
So if your bell is getting rung twice you put both on the stack, then:
Responding to different points on the stack is a good trick to learn, and it can be subtle when playing with paper cards. But if you get the chance to play Magic Online, you can see the stack in action as you get asked for actions between each step.
If you're on MTGO check out the Free Events via PDCMagic and Gatherling.
Other games you should try:DC Universe Online - action-based MMO. Free to play. Surprisingly well-designed combat and classes.
Planetside 2 - Free to play MMO-meets-FPS and the first shooter I've liked in ages.Simunomics - Free-to-play economy simulation game.
Thanks. I knew about the stack but not placing things in the orser i want. Also everyone must be wrong about it all happening at one time. I will remember this
