So here’s the deck I played at last weekend’s Scars Pre-Release…when I cracked four artifact removal cards in two colors it was pretty much a lock as far as what I was going to play. Despite starting over an hour late and only playing three rounds in a large field, it was a good time overall.

Welcome back to another week at The Community!
We’re looking at something of a lighter week as Clovenhoof and The Elitist are taking a break.
Cam and I will be focusing on Magic, fresh off of our participation in the Scars of Mirrodin pre-release, with an eye forward to the release event itself as well as the new Standard and Extended formats we can expect to see crop up in the aftermath.
The Thief will also be back for another Trailer Trash Friday, and this weekend we expect the first article from our new contributor Sniper. I can’t wait to see what he’s cooking up for his debut article.
Until next time, stick with The Community (and SUBSCRIBE to us if you really feel the love!)
Since 2007 there has been no hockey franchise that could compete with the monster that is EA Sports. Basically owning every sporting title known to man (with the exception of baseball), EA Sports continues its royal lineage of NHL titles with the latest release of NHL 11.
Nintendo is known for two things: great first-party titles and taking risks. Their latest risk was putting Team Ninja – a development team that isn’t really all there when it comes to respecting women – in charge of the latest Metroid title for the Wii.
…with the blood of the innocent reviews of NHL ’11 and Metroid: Other M that The Elitist and Thief have cooked up for you, respectively.
Since I don’t have time to edit them both tonight, it looks like we’re looking at a heap of conflicting deadline issues SUPER DOUBLE POST FRIDAY!
Until next time,
Stick with The Community I love Strikethrough.
Remember Virulent Sliver? Didn’t you hate that guy? Then Scars of Mirrodin will make you long for the day two poison counters from an attacking creature was as terrifying as it got – oh yes, I remember you well, Marsh Viper.
While poison intrigued some players for a while – especially when slivers each handing out one poison counter per attack were ultra-dangerous – it had certain issues. Flavorwise, why do some creatures deal poison counters just for attacking while others need to do combat damage and still others (well, one other) for attacking unblocked? Mechanically, how are you supposed to get these dinky poisonous creatures around your opponents’ creatures? I mean, if you can’t get through for damage, a 2/2 for 2G isn’t all that hot.
Enter Infect, the first new mechanic I’ll be talking about. Infect, its explanatory text reads, means “this creature deals damage to creatures in the form of -1/-1 counters and to players in the form of poison counters.”
Back in Shadowmoor, Wither wrought havoc with impressive creatures like Boggart Ram-Gang. While Infect provides no creature that’s quite so powerful as the Ram-Gang, the mechanic gives its creatures that extra bite. Unblocked, Boggart Ram-Gang is just a 3/3 with Haste for three mana (haha, “just”!).
Infect creatures put more pressure on your opponent than Wither creatures and definitely more than normal creatures. Your opponent must choose between shrinking one of his bigger creatures, losing one of his smaller creatures or taking a number of counters that give him a shorter clock than the usual 20 life.
Last week I covered a topic that is an immense rift in WoW fanhood, the private server; some people swear by it while some swear to see it permanently destroyed… most likely from the VD you get from it. My article last week touched on how illegal a private server can be… but exactly how illegal are we talking about here? Well, open your eyes wider and pay attention, you might be surprised.
Hey everybody, time to kick off another week at The Community! This week we’ll have a review of NHL ’11 by The Elitist, Cam should be dropping by to discuss his first look at the Scars of Mirrodin spoilers and a deck he’s been working on based on what’s already been revealed. RAD will be returning to give us a review of Metroid: Other M, and with any luck the Thief will have a new trailer for us to look at and Clovenhoof will dive a little deeper into the lawsuits surrounding World of Warcraft private servers.
That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.
If you’re a big fan of Starcraft 2 or any Real-Time Strategy games, at least a big enough fan to search them on Youtube, there’s a real possibility you’ve heard this term before. But what exactly does it mean? I sat down with “Crota”, purveyor of the Youtube channel Blizshouter, to find out.
Hey guys! Long time no read eh? Well it’s time to bring a new series here to The Community called Trailer Trash, where I’ll be responding to recent trailers.
