EDIT...

THIS WAS SOLVED ALREADY YET PEOPLE KEEP SAYING THINGS LIKE "ITS A BLOG POST ABOUT YOUR LIFE" BLA BLA...durka durka....its over

I posted it here because only gamers can understand gaming situations. To average joe it is no different than playing UNO. Thus this forum has an element of people relating to situations such as what was posted.

I didn't break any rules, I was irritated and online before I had even woke up which I stated more than once already and under normal cirumstances it would not have been posted, but after I had coffee etc. it was already put up so I just went with it. Would I have normally posted this? Nope. Do I regret posting it? Nope...sh** happens, it got people talking and again, I didn't break any rules.

Now my MTG cupcakes are ready to be decorated...off I go

I think the very obvious answer here is to chop his balls off and wear them as a fancy necklace.

In truth, I'd be outraged if my signifigant other said something along those terms. I know what it's like because I told a friend I was invited to a masquerade and he wasn't and threw a fit...mind you we're teenagers and he's a bitch anyway so his reaction was pretty for-seeable.

So by viewing him I can see why you'd be so upset

I still think you should chop is balls off though. 
I'm hurt and angry about this still. If he actually goes and leaves me behind......straight up that feels like he is putting game night over me.

I got stuff to make MTG cupcakes this weekend since it was going to be at our place (that is the norm). Im not making any freaking MTG cupcakes now. No way in hell

don't have kids if you want to enjoy life ;)

but anyway, the solution to this is to simply host it again at your house where everything seemed to work fine

No cupcakes? Hot damn you are furious
The cupcake thing was a challenge and something that originated last week..long story....

No orange syrup cupcakes with MTG inspired designs on the top now....pfft....

we'll see what happens. I like to think he wouldn't actually think a hour or two more of magic is worth hurting my feelings and excluding me like this so maybe we all do go. If he actually does make me stay home and cuts me out of the game night then I'll be really upset.

Even if I'm sympathetic to your cause, you wont like my reply. This is hardly related to magic, it's a family issue and the worst place you should bring it up is on a magic the gathering forum, if you want help with your situation, use common sense and ask your friends and family.... if you really want outside opinions, find another forum that's more about helping people with family/friend problems. This forum is for entertainment, your post hardly fits that profile
I love trolls Dont hate me because I'm blunt and you cannot handle it
I had played M:tG with my friends before having kids and gave it up for a few years because it wasnt something that my partner was into and it became too inconvenient for me to go. So yeah, in your situation I would be upset.

I think you need to communicate your needs clearly, with both your husband and possibly your group of friends, so everyone understands. I regret giving up my hobby, and wish I had communicated and worked it out better before.

Now I play with my BF and have taught my kids to play, so its a "family night" activity we all do together sometimes.
@ MoiMoi, I'm not upset with your reply. I understand what you are saying and I can see that side of it. I also respect and appreciate your honesty. I like people that tell me exactly what they are thinking even if it is something I might not like.

The reason I posted it here was because I thought other MTG players would understand the aspect of being excluded from the weekly game night whereas other people might be like "its a game night, so what?" and think it was the same thing as not attending a game of pictionary. The added part about finishing my maind eck this week and the excitement that comes with getting those expensive cards in the mail then being told...NO...you don't get to play....non-gamers won't understand that. My mother tries to understand the gamer aspect of our life, but people that don't get really into games just can't relate. Lots of people don't even realize professional gamers that game for a living exist. I completely get where you are coming from though and in honesty, if I had been fully awake I probably wouldn't have posted it. I didn't even have my coffee yet...I am addicted to coffee

In the end......I am a gamer so I am approaching this as a gamer. My main deck is finally where I want it to be. She is ready to charge in and annihilate people (hopefully lol) so I am going to state "if you are scared of being challenged by my main and would rather go up against decks that you already know what to expect from....I understand. She is a formidable deck after all." We are both competitive and I have purposefully not let him know everything in this deck so he can't prep for it...hitting that competitive nerve will strike up one of those "Ohhh really?" type of replies and I'll just smile and walk away.

Problem solved.......like many gamers in existence throughout the years, most cannot refuse a challenge hehehe

I would love for my wife to be into Magic even a quarter as much as I am. She plays a little, but I would have to physically drag her to anything resembling a "gaming night" (I would probably need to tranq her too). This means that it isnt an issue for us: if I want to go play games anywhere, she is happy to stay at home with the kids (she usually invites her sister over for the evening).

If she was interested in coming to gaming events we would have to arrange a babysitter (we have done this for a couple of tournaments and other events in the past, but the experience put her off going again).

I would remind your other hald just how lucky he is to have a partner that even wants to go to gaming nights with him. Im sure my wife would agree with the "necklace" comment above too...

Is it possible you are reading too much into his response?

Could it be that he was (badly) saying that it was up to you to decide whether to stay home or bring your child to the game?  Did he get your back up and now doesn't know how(or is too stubborn) to make things right?  Sadly, Foot-in-Mouth is a Y-chromosome linked disease with not enough research dollars being spent on its cure.

Relax, go to the game, and if the new venue doesn't work out, the players will realize this and will move the game to the optimal location.
 
No....he was telling me he was ditching me because he didn't want to come home a couple hours earlier. He is very stubborn btw.....lol.

I actually came up with a perfect solution....well not perfect, but he can't even get upset about this because he completely gets what he wants, I partially get it with a minimal sacrifice.

I did issue the challenge thing hitting his competitive nerve, but I also said we all go.....I'll still make the MTG cupcakes so everyone gets homemade cupcakes (look at my username...I can bake a mean cupcake lol) and when our daughter needs to come home, wind down and go to bed I will leave and snap back into parent mode while he can stay and he calls me when he is ready to come home at which point I will put her in the back still sleeping and come pick him up. So he can still stay till 2am if he wants, I still get to play a bit and wreck some people with my main deck that was recently completed (even got her new sleeves). So everyone wins.

I think the new person is trying to be nice since we are always the ones hosting and that is a nice gesture, but I dont think they realize that majority of the group lives in our immediate neighborhood, we have tons of extra equipment people are constantly using (dice, counters, sleeves etc. etc...a couple of them like being at our place because we have A LOT of cards that we loan out or trade with. If you want vintage, we are the place to trade lol and the others with kids do well at our location since we have amenities for children of varying ages. Our house is the easiest one for people to use, I could literally yell out my window right now and one of the gamers could hear me from his house.

I did overreact a little....I didn't even have my morning coffee or peanut butter toast yet. I was still in my pajamas with funky looking hair sticking in weird directions hehe. I dont appreciate the comment....but all shall be rectified on the gaming battlefield.

Why don't YOU go, and leave HIM home with the kid now and then? 
I humbly think that the issue here is communication. Tell him how you feel, and work out a solution. Something like "today, I'll stay, but next time it's you" or something like that. Look at what the possibilities are, and find something that benefits you both and that you are both happy with. Remember that men do not always think like women and that there's often a bridge to cross to understand what your significant other really means. Half the fun of a couple, after all, is working out disagreements

When talks about banning Jace first started, I was thinking that I would see him banned come June 20th. But as I think more about it, I don't really think that Jace is the problem anymore. Sure his power level leaves very little to the imagination (opening Jace is like opening a refrigerator box with a naked girl on the inside), and sure his price does have a strong impact on what players choose to play (playing Jace is like being intimate with a woman and she doesn't charge you in the morning), but it is not the source of all the problems in Standard.

How do people think saving room to print more abilities on cards is dumbing down the game?

Do you really think, say, Akroma would ever be printed if she said, "Akroma can block by creatures with this ability and cannot be blocked by creatures without this ability.  If a creature without this ability would deal combat damage by Akroma would be destroyed, prevent all combat damage that creature would deal to Akroma this combat.  Attacking does not cause Akroma to tap.  If Akroma is blocked and deals lethal damage, it deals the remainder of its damage to the defending player.  Akroma may attack and use abilities that require tapping in the casting cost the turn it enters the battlefield.  Akroma cannot be damaged, enchanted, equipped, blocked or targeted by black or red sources" rather than her "dumbed down" wording she has?  No freaking way.  Keywording and shorthand allows them to make complicated cards easy to play with, allowing them to be printed in the first place.

3. subsequently ask "will you attack this turn"? and "will you cast a spell this turn"? (using a Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir for the second question if necessary) to ensure they can't disrupt the combo
4. donate them a platinum angel
5. play a mox lotus and braingeyser them for every card in their library. play an opalescence and donate them a glorious anthem and a blacker lotus, then play enchanted evening. play and activate a mindslaver and then donate them a fastbond and the mox lotus (returning one of the donates to your hand with eternal witness or whatever)
6. during their turn, play every permanent in their hand (playing lands with fastbond) then (as yourself) cast mirrorweave on the blacker lotus, so every permanent becomes a copy of it. proceed to tear up every card they control, and hopefully do it before they notice that they aren't bound by staying power's ability anymore and can concede

Everyone's life would be easier if players would, instead of coming to the 'net for help with a deck, just netdeck and be done with it. And I'm not talking about some Top 8 lists, for the Casualists, too, can benefit from netdecking. I've netdecked plenty of decks from the Casual Play forums from users such as Mown, Raedien, Floopfoot, and a few others. I snatched straight the heck out of my web browser. Yes, people, your original idea fell victim to a savage netdecker. You have been assimiliated. Suppose I wanted a Zombie deck. Why on earth would I spend time searching Gatherer for a decent list of Zombie cards when Raedien already did it for me? Taking time to be creative or waiting on people on the forums to tell you why your deck sucks or 'go to Casual forums' is a disasterous waste of time (to me).

Also decks have no color identity. -Starting life total is 20. And voila, now things are balanced.

The outer layer of the Magic: the Gathering box, the carton, or crust, is fairly thin and light, and contains largely aluminosilcates. Within that lies the middle layer, consisting of the familiar booster pack. Although solid, the booster packs' high temperatures allow them to acutally move around within the booster box. This flow, sometimes called convection, is cited by frustrated box mappers as one of WOTC's most genious uses of thermodynamics since the Ravnica block. No one knows what lies at the core of the booster box, but scientists theorize that it must be especially dense in order to make up for the large amount of fluff distributed amongst the booster packs.

MaRo has a thing for people opening boosters with bad cards.

He proceeds to wring his hands and twirl his evil mustache that he grew for twirling purposes as a lightning bolt strikes in the background. Afterwards, he goes to make sure that the good cards are only opened by everyone's friends, and that we all only get to open bad cards. He does this by memorising each booster, than switching them around accordingly. Whenever someone complains about a card, he immediately jumps out from behind a chair to yell "WELL, IT'S NOT FOR YOU!" before merging back into the shadows in order to devise new ways in which he can screw over players, then claim that he has valid reasons for doing so.

I'm only opposed to it because it bears so little relation to how people actually play the game. The example of Miracles is actually a much better one then the Clone example I was trying to use. From the game's perspective, the card can move instantly from face down in the library to revealed in the hand and that's fine for the rules. But in real life, we can't actually do that, so the card spends a good bit of time in locations that are neither where that player's library is nor where that player's hand is. And that's fine for real life. What I don't want is the disconnect to be explicitly codified. Along the lines of
183664.697 A game of Magic as laid out by these rules exists only as a pure Platonic ideal, utterly unrealizable by fallible mortals limited by the confines of physicality and the ravages of evil and sin. 183664.698 The cake is a lie, too.
I know it's true, but I don't want the rules to actually straight-up tell me that.

Yeah. Talk to the cashier. Tell him/her that you want a Black Lotus, and if they don't have one tell them that the store isn't on par with what you expected.

 

Reach into your back left pocket. Pull out a deck list that you copied directly from some ChannelFireball top 8 Standard discussion, and ask for all the cards, as is, on that list. Then, ask for some random, probably terrible cards from whatever set is Standard legal. Say it's tech for the upcoming changes in the metagame.

 

Pull out a deck, and tell some random dude you wanna test (you have to use the term "test" for this to work) for Standard. Make sure that deck contains Kitchen Finks and Alluring Siren. Maybe throw in Nyxathid for good measure.

 

Finally, before you leave, spill (make it look like an accident) one hundred singleton, random cards onto the floor. Pick them up, put them in a pile, and say "EEE-DEE-AYCH".

 

I know this sounds dumb at first, but it will work. With the method outlined above, you will draw the attention of players that play older formats by asking for cards that no one on Earth can reasonably afford. You will get the attention of the wanna-be pro, Stomp-n00bz players by pulling out a well known decklist and declare that you have "tech" to make it better. You will get the attention of all the kind, helpful players by seemingly not knowing the most common format by having non-Standard legal cards in a deck that you claim is Standard legal. Finally, you catch all the rest of the Magic players by saying "EEE-DEE-AYCH" (EDH (or Commander)).

And there you have it. You will be talking to more people than you would have wanted to talk to in no time.

Game night is usually at our home...has never been anywhere else. A big plus to this is that we have a kid and one of the couples also has a kid so they usually play in the back in my daughter's room and they have plenty of things to keep them entertained. One of the new people decided they wanted to do game night at their house. My husband tells me this morning we got invited to it. I said we cannot stay super late cause they have an infant which means they don't have stuff to keep a 5 year old entertained, so even with us bringing some toys for her , ultimately the kids won't be as entertained...they will start to get bored and that equals kids acting up. So he told me "well , he invited me, I just invited you along with me as a courtesy" which set me back because I was like ohhh....now I am not included in magic night anymore? When we invite the couples we don't say "bring your wife" because it is kinda normal that the wife comes with people so we just give a date/time and a general invite...same thing he got. Suddently I am not invited because we have a kid? In my state of being upset I blurted out "well fine, then I guess I'm not wanted. Just go by yourself"...anyone of you that is married knows very well you don't agree to that when someone says it....but he just said "okay" and left.

Now I'm hurt and pissed. Now I am being excluded out of magic night because we have a child? The other couple with a kid will both show up. I just finished my main deck because I was waiting on cards in the mail for a couple weeks and really wanted to use this weekend plus I made all the rest of my decks standard because one person complained about it....then I get excluded?

Would you be upset in this situation? Mind you I just woke up.....I got all of this while still makin gmy breakfast.



Hell yeah I'd be pissed; I'm pissed off just hearing about it. I can't believe these guys. Seriously. He has zero excuse for his ridiculous actions, and no one's going to tell me "Oh well, he just doesn't understand- it's a lack of communication" my arse; he knows what's going on and he's clearly choosing to be with a group of people rather than to be with you. The guy has a beautiful wife who plays the SAME FREAKING GAME and he's going to leave to go play it with other people? What a jerk move. I can only WISH I had a cool chick to sit and play Magic with and this guy DOES have that but just, squanders it like it's nothing?! This pisses me off so bad. You need to slap him across the face when he walks through the door and say, "That is courtesy of kenobi!"

I can't even comprehend it. I can almost ALMOST understand his point of view if you didn't play Magic and this was his only chance to play in, say, a few months or something; but it sounds like you guys regularly play so there's not even that. And even if that were the case he should clearly STILL choose to stay with you. I wish I could just zap him into another reality where you don't exist and leave him there until he's sobbing "Where's my Lupa? I need my Lupa! Whyyyyyyyyyyy?!" then I would pop in and say, "Are you getting it yet bro? Is it getting through that numb skull of yours? ARE YOU UNDERSTANDING IT YET?!" These guys, I swear!

Anyway I don't mean to come down too hard on the guy, but when you're thinking, "I wish I had that, too" and the guy that actually DOES have it acts like it, meh, whatever- it's just, it's... it pisses me off.

Grrrrr

edit: Oh okay, and plus the guy says "Well, he invited me"?! This is what he says? "Oh, he invited me" the other guy didn't invite you? You're not ? I mean, he actually says "He invited me" like you're some afterthought that doesn't even exist but as a courtesy?! This is just... just... RAAAAAAAAH
Yes.

From a barely adult witholding sex passive aggressively seems fair enough.

Otherwise be honest with him, he's your husband, you should be able to let him know you are okay with this. Work it out with the older couples. If you have to have it at their place switch off occasionally, you one night, him the next.

If that fails pool in for a baby sitter at your place, everyone wins.
Let the kids eat everyone's cards.

Oh, it's a brilliant plan. You see, Bolas was travelling through shadowmoor, causing trouble, when he saw a Wickerbough Elder with its stylin' dead scarecrow hat. Now, Bolas being Bolas took the awesome hat and he put it on his head, but even with all his titanic powers of magic he couldn't make it fit. He grabbed some more scarecrows, but then a little kithkin girl asked if he was trying to build a toupee. "BY ALL THE POWERS IN THE MULTIVERSE!" he roared, "I WILL HAVE A HAT WORTHY OF MY GLORY." and so he went through his Dark Lore of Doom (tm) looking for something he could make into a hat that would look as stylish on him as a scarecrow does on a treefolk. He thought about the Phyrexians, but they were covered in goopy oil that would make his nonexistant hair greasy. He Tried out angels for a while but they didn't sit quite right. Then, he looked under "e" (because in the Elder Draconic alphabet, "e" for Eldrazi is right next to "h" for Hat) in his Dark Lore of Doom and saw depictions of the Eldrazi, and all their forms. "THIS SHALL BE MY HAT!" he declared, poking a picture of Emrakul, "AND WITH IT I WILL USHER IN A NEW AGE OF DARKNESS -- ER, I MEAN A NEW AGE OF FASHION!" And so Nicol Bolas masterminded the release of the Eldrazi.

Seconded.
I don't see what the big deal is. You're saying "he's choosing them over me", but as long as you still prioritize the majority of the time that you spend together it shouldn't be unreasonable to have a night out with the boys w/o you. My wife and I go out and do things w/o eachother all the time. As a matter of fact, she's playing bunco tonight, and in return I get to go to FNM this week. If one of you HAVE to stay home with the kid, let him go out and play. Next time, he has to stay at home. Problem solved. Give and take, it's not rocket science...
Mmm. I see your point. They are your mutual friends.

In my experience, whenever I do the sort of thing that he did to you. There is one inevitable result. It doesn't matter who the girl is that I'm seeing. She always reacts the same way. She withholds the goods. And it always works, I always apologize and make it up to her - well, almost always, unless we split up, but hopefully your relationship with him is stronger than most of my flings.

The thing is, though, that you need to remember that the world where men live their lives runs on different principles. He may just listened to the words you said, without noticing your tone of voice or trying to guess at your feelings about this.

Men are, generally, not as sensitive to the emotions of others as women are. They concern themselves with problem-solving, with the literal meaning of words, and so on.

So, while he no doubt would have preferred the couple hosting MTG night would have been happy to have you and your child along, it is their home - and by showing up, he avoids them (and the other people in the playgroup) thinking that he gets upset at people easily... and so next week, MtG night could come back to your home, or to the home of another family who is happy to have you and the child over, and things are back to normal. (If any of the members of the playgroup are co-workers of his, he may consider it very important to maintain amicable relations with them, and that for your sake as well as his, since this is relevant to the security of the household income.)

He just may not be realizing that you are taking this personally. (And, in a man's world, taking things personally is generally considered a bad thing. After all, it doesn't have to be that they don't like you; they may just have expensive furniture or something.)

You will need to tell him this is important to you, and you feel very badly about this. And because men are generally trained to put a low priority on their own feelings, it may even take a bit of effort on your part to get him to realize that you're not being unreasonably demanding.

Right now, he probably thinks of this as a relatively minor matter, assuming that being left alone for one evening won't be a big deal because there are plenty of other enjoyable things to do besides playing Magic. He may not even imagine that this matters enough to you as to involve a risk of affecting your marriage.

Getting men to be more sensitive is difficult and takes gentle persistence. I'm sure he loves you and does not want to hurt you; but you will need to let him know this is hurting you, and be patient as he works to understand you and communicate with you better.

Oh, it's a brilliant plan. You see, Bolas was travelling through shadowmoor, causing trouble, when he saw a Wickerbough Elder with its stylin' dead scarecrow hat. Now, Bolas being Bolas took the awesome hat and he put it on his head, but even with all his titanic powers of magic he couldn't make it fit. He grabbed some more scarecrows, but then a little kithkin girl asked if he was trying to build a toupee. "BY ALL THE POWERS IN THE MULTIVERSE!" he roared, "I WILL HAVE A HAT WORTHY OF MY GLORY." and so he went through his Dark Lore of Doom (tm) looking for something he could make into a hat that would look as stylish on him as a scarecrow does on a treefolk. He thought about the Phyrexians, but they were covered in goopy oil that would make his nonexistant hair greasy. He Tried out angels for a while but they didn't sit quite right. Then, he looked under "e" (because in the Elder Draconic alphabet, "e" for Eldrazi is right next to "h" for Hat) in his Dark Lore of Doom and saw depictions of the Eldrazi, and all their forms. "THIS SHALL BE MY HAT!" he declared, poking a picture of Emrakul, "AND WITH IT I WILL USHER IN A NEW AGE OF DARKNESS -- ER, I MEAN A NEW AGE OF FASHION!" And so Nicol Bolas masterminded the release of the Eldrazi.

Yeah, really. If my deck was going to cost $1000+, I'd at least make it good.

Absolutely. I used to loose to my buddy's Banding deck for ages, it was then that I found out about Tolaria, and I was finally able win my first game.

Browbeat is a card that is an appropriate deck choice when there's no better idea available. "No better idea available" was pretty much the running theme of Odyssey era.

It's true that Alpha and Beta didn't contain any cards like Tarmogoyf, Darksteel Colossus, or Platinum Angel. It just contained weak, insignificant cards like Black Lotus, Mox Sapphire, and Time Walk.
Normally it's difficult to pick up on your jokes/sarcasm. But this one's pretty much out there. Good progress. You have moved up to Humanoid. You'll be Human in no time.

Hmm....

I didn't really think of it as spousal advice , just a bit pissy at being "uninvited" to game night after I spent all week adjusting majority of my decks due to a request from one of the new people to make them "easier to beat" "dumbed down" and preferably standard. I refused to do that for my main deck and actually finished her this week, but I put a lot of hours into changing my other decks at their request because a couple of them are new and need some easier decks to learn against, I built a deck for one of them out of request then I get ditched?

It was not a matter of one of us had to stay home, if that was the case then we alternate, no biggie. It was a case of we would have to leave a little bit earlier, couldn't stay till 2am

Like I said many posts ago yesterday though.....I already solved the problem. So you guys can keep going on about it if you want (hehe), but I fixed this yesterday exactly how I posted I would. We are all going, I have been slaving in the kitchen all morning baking a bunc hof cupcakes that will be decorated with mana symbols, I am leaving when our munchkin needs to come home and go to bed then when he is ready to come he calls and I go pick him up so he can stay till 2-3...buttcrack of dawn for all I care lol. I still get to play.

I should add in...this weekends game night is an interesting one...we are doing something unusual, at least for us. This was not our idea, one of the players wants to play for pink slips....winner of best out of 3 takes the losers deck. Not all of the matches will bel ike this and I don't plan on putting my main deck up like this, but I want to see this go down!

That, or beg for attention.  I can't decide if it's one or the other, or both. Undecided

I must have overlooked that post. I am very happy it worked out.

Coming up with weird ideas to make everyone happy since 2008!

 

I have now started a blog as an appropriate place to put my crazy ideas.

Magic IS Life
A rogue with a bowl of slop can be a controller. WIZARD PC: Can I substitute Celestial Roc Guano for my fireball spells? DM: Awesome. Yes. When in doubt, take action.... that's generally the best course. Even Sun Tsu knew that, and he didn't have internets.

Lol. I only said that to be droll. I don't even play magic very often.
