Question about Bluffing

Hi,

May I ask what happens if I select "Enable Bluffing" in the Account Settings?  

I am guessing that it means that there will be a pause when an opponent casts a spell, even though a have pressed F6.  Is this right?

Does enabling it mean that I will be penalized by losing time off my clock whilst the client is bluffing?

Thanks. 
It is for when you want to bluff if you might have either leylines or miracles. It will give you a stop either before the first turn or during your draw step even if you don't have one of those cards in hand.
And yes it will use up time on your clock, like any other time you have priority.


I've bought the cards and made a deck Now how do I win at this?

Thank you Timotheus for your helpful response.
How long has "Enable Bluffing" been around?  I have never noticed it, thanks for heads up.

Fairly sure its been there since the leylines first came out, or maybe a couple of months after. So about 6 years and 2 new clients.
I remember there being a discussion on here about how it was "really important" to be able to bluff that you had one but choose not to play it for some reason.

Enable bluffing is how they handled the lag in the draw step from the Miracle keyword.  The game causes lag in every draw step so your opponent doesn't know for sure whether you drew a miracle and declined to use it, or not.

Unfortunately, VCLs do not currently have the tools necessary to take moderation actions directly. VCLs submit their actions to ORCs, who then actually perform the action. This processing can take between a few minutes and several hours, depending on how busy/attentive the ORCs are.

If you see something that needs VCL attention, please use this thread to make a request and a VCL will look at it as soon as possible. CoC violations should be reported to Customer Service using the "report post" button. Please do not disrupt the thread by making requests of either kind in-thread.

Yeah, I think it's mainly for the miracles, so whenever that was (Avacyn Restore?)
