comment What's the strategic advantage of building around alternate win conditions?
Exactly. I won heavily with a tempo-advantage-based artifact deck based around Sage of Lat-Nam... because I did it back in Legends when nobody had heard the word "tempo" yet. Never lost a match at the time; nobody was ready to counter the concept. (It would look pretty slow these days.)

Excellent point, ghoppe; I should have taken a moment to find the rule. Thanks for fixing the gap.

comment Who should I try to kill? Chandra or opponent?
@JSBᾶngs: Concur; being about a specific game-situation doesn't inherently make a question "localized", unless that game situation can only happen in a certain time or place. Also, in this case, the situation illustrates a general principal.

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.

@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)
