I play casual Magic, along with a slew of other board and card games. It seems that every week my board game group and I are trying out something new, so I've had exposure to a variety of systems and types of games. My girlfriend and I also create tournament brackets for the 16 Summoner Wars guilds and play through those. This includes rankings and win/loss records, both for each guild and for her and me. We're nerdy like that.

comment Where can I find price-lists for Star Trek CCG cards?
I'm not seeing anywhere that prices are listed. Does this website provide that? And welcome to B&CG!

Could you add a reference to the MTG Comp Rules for this?

comment First strike and bioshift
The question I have is why it is even necessary for the first strike creature to deal damage. It's blocked, and you know you're moving the counters anyway. If the player is dead, it doesn't really matter if their creature died first.

comment Why is Trade Secrets banned in EDH or Commander?
I was just about to post the fact that EDH isn't WotC moderated. I think this is an important point when it comes to the ban list.

comment Why is Trade Secrets banned in EDH or Commander?
I agree. I think this card was too "chummy" and was causing severe unfunness when two players worked together to beat the rest of the table. Plus it was played in every blue deck just because of how good the draw was.

I posted a response out in chat so that the discussion doesn't continue here.

@GendoIkari Gah! Just started looking around and it seems the internet agrees with you (probably because you're right). But I stand by my statement of it violating the spirit of EDH.

comment Does Thrumming Stone ripple after ripple
@SirDuckduck 100.2a of the Comp Rules says in constructed play that a deck can contain "no more than four of any card." But the rules for EDH are worded differently: 903.5b says that each card "must have a different English name." I think the word "must" would indicate that multiple copies of any card would be illegal. Additionally, I personally feel that Relentless Rats violates the spirit of EDH; I'd be incredibly annoyed if someone did this in an EDH game, and I feel like most other players would, too.

@SirDuckduck If you play an EDH deck with 30 Relentless Rats, you aren't playing an EDH deck. "With the exception of basic lands, no two cards in the deck may have the same English name."

@AlexP Good call. It was the word "new" that threw me off.

@wesdfgfgd Why not? Blood Scrivener only makes you lose 1 life, not life equal to the CMC. It would be abetter option that Dark Confidant.

comment Does the first spell from Possibility Storm go on the stack before being exiled?
To clarify, does Hive Mind trigger twice: once for the original spell, once for the revealed spell?

comment How well do sleeves protect against spilled drinks?
Why wouldn't you just put a card in a penny sleeve and then upside down inside a normal sleeve? Doesn't that seal both ends reasonably well without having to tape everything?

Sorry @Purrferret. The attempt to get the apostrophe in there didn't work. I rolled it back to the un-apostrophed version.

Are you asking specifically whether Isochron would let you cast both sides of the card for 2 mana?

comment Is there a term for: “Doesn't untap during next untap step”?
I actually wouldn't mind exhausted for lands or other permanents. One of the common uses is "exhausted resources," which is what every card in MtG represents. They are resources that are meant to help you cast spells and defeat your opponents.

If we're going to coin terms, I'm voting for "Exhausted." That creature is exhausted; it doesn't untap because it can't do anything. Alternatives if "Exhausted" is actually under copyright because of Vs.: depleted, crippled, or enervated.
