comment Easy way to see changes between core sets?
Yes; without Giant Growth it doesn't feel like core Magic, somehow. Ah well. It'll be back.

comment Comparisons Betwen Deck-Building Games
@gomad: New since you asked the question, and well worth including, is Nightfall. It's particularly worth a look for anyone who liked the theme of Jyhad (although it's mechanically very different). I'll try to add an all-in-one answer later.

+1. This answer is much more comprehensive than mine; recommend changing accepted answer. (In hindsight, can't believe I forgot to mention Dirtside/Stargrunt; I wrote software for Dirtside vehicle creation once. facepalm)

comment Can you counter a Land in Magic the Gathering?
@thesunneversets: Everything you say is true, but that is getting a bit more sophisticated than the level implied by the question - as you correctly point out, Boomerang really isn't the same as a counterspell in this case. (I don't say that countering land is always the right move, only that it's not always a waste.)

@Margaret: I grew up in a hairdresser's, so how did I never think of this before? Thanks, good idea.

comment How to successfully store games on edge?
@aramis: True, but not a problem for me. The probability of a card deck in any game in my house going unused for enough years for the band to go brittle or stick to the cards is zero. (Also, I use pretty high-quality rubber bands when called for.) Broad bands, not stretched too tightly, don't cause enough bowing to be noticeable for our group - cards wear through use faster than that anyway. For games which consist entirely of card decks, I use CCG card boxes.

comment Is there a situation or way that a sabotage run is a good idea in TI:3?
@Matthijs: Not if you only have one fighter, you don't. Also, the sabotage run, if successful, will stop the war sun from firing at all - hypothetically this might be better, although it's hard to imagine a likely scenario where that's more important than better odds of destroying it.

@GWLosa's logic is flawless. On the other hand, the card is hardly weak if that ability is useless...

I can see both sides. We've played it lilserf's way so far; seeing as it can definitely auto-force success at Brig, Admiral's or Airlock, it's hardly a weak card.
