OMG click HERE! OMG! How to autocard and use decklist format
--->
For autocarding, write [c][/c] with the name of the card inside it. [c]Island[/c] = Island For linking a card to Gatherer without writting the name of said card for readers, use the autocard brackets together with and equal sign and right the name of the real card. Then put the message you want inside the tags, like you would do with autocarding. Like this: [c=Curse of the Cabal]Captain Never-resolves[/c] = Captain Never-resolves For using the decklist format, follow this: [deck] 4* Terramorphic Expanse 4* Evolving Wilds ... [/deck] It equals:

I like storm crow because I really like crows in real life, as an animal, and the card isn't terribly stupid, but packs a good deal of nostalgia and also a chunck of the game's history. So it's perhaps one of the cards I have most affection to, but not because "lol storm crow is bad hurr hurr durr".

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.

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.

Wow... who approved the art on that one??

(and "Fatty Boom Boom"... really?)
This has become a must read article for me. Well written and concise
Birthing Pod can win with a 1-drop and a 2-drop. 4 mana + 4 phi mana required.

1. Sac 2-drop into Deceiver Exarch, untap Pod
2. Sac 1-drop into Phantasmal Image copy Exarch, untap Pod
3. Sac Imaged Exarch into Restoration Angel, blink Exarch, untap Pod 
4. Sac Angel into Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, infinite Exarchs

It can also win with just that 4-drop if it is Glen Elendra Archmage

1. Sac the archmage for Zealous Conscripts, untap Pod
2. Sac the persisted archmage for Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, infinite conscripts

You took your interpretation of their art too far.  Same with the title of the article.  The art is a wurm wearing the Selesnya headplate similar to what you see on Siege Wurm bursting out of the ground and throwing some humanoids and chunks of earth in the air.  I don't see that art (or the art for Rupture Spire) as offensive.  The title of the article could have been chosen better.  However, since creatures with high power and toughness are known as "fatties" in Magic slang and these wurms are decimating the depicted army (and can do a lot of damage to opponents) the title fits.

The art for the card and the title of the article were not meant in any way to violate any rules.  It is sad that such art can be viewed in such a way and a title of an article can be completely ruined by the way some people think.

I would like to complain about the creature type of this card. Hydras have been an awesome additional to green. Things like Vorapede and now this wurm however, are just too lame to be mythic. Green will never be respected as the 'creature color' as long as every color gets more interesting iconic creatures.

Also, jokes about Siege Wurm are as old as the original Ravnica block itself.

I didn't interpret their art at all. I think the art is hideous, not offensive, and the title is something that would be written by a second grader.

My comment was not meant in any way to violate any rules, apparently it's your interpretation of my comment that violates the code of conduct. It's sad that comments can be completely ruined by the way some people think.

You guys are all being really immature.


I for one think this is a great card.  I look forward to playing it alongside Witch-Maw Nephilim and my promo Demigod of Revenge in my Naya-inspired "Size Matters" deck.

@Fish

I am sorry I interpreted your comment the way I did.  Your comment was rather vague as to what your thoughts were of what you were referring to and it's location after a few rather crude comments skewed my judgement of your comment.  Thank you for clarifying your position.

What part exactly violates the code of conduct?

If bringing to someones attention that their post contains a vulgar message that is against the code of conduct is bullying then I am a bully and we should have a few more bullys of that sort.  I am not a bully, but such remarks do not belong on a forum.  

I was wrong in including Fish in my starting comment as he was trying to convey a different message then I thought.  Though as I said, his initial post was not specific as to his reasonings and given the location after vulgar posts it seemed that he was adding to them.  I have already tried to apologize for including Fish in my initial comment.

I am not going to give you any straighter of an answer because doing so would involve violating the code of conduct.  Although this is starting to become derailing so I hope that this will be the last statement I have to say on the matter.  I do not intend to derail the thread.

you must be american...the amount of prudity in this thread is too damn high! its just a joke about something that looks like somthing else without using vulgar language. how immature is it to report something harmless as that?

GreenBuster is right.  The people who made this card:



would never ever tolerate a tastefully-stated risque joke on their forums.

Hmmm... GreenBuster seems like a pretty good fit for Azorius.

As for the card, it's quite good. Two 5/5 tramplers are going pretty hard for a lot of decks to deal with, especially within a more casual setting.
It's funny because it looks like a willy.

In all seriousness, I was hoping RtR wouldn't neglect the whole ETB thing that's popped up enough in Innistrad and M13 to now have a good deck going for it, and they didn't let me down. Losing Birds is painful, but a playset of this bad boy to go with my Thragtusks and Restos will do just fine.

Penis.
