destrarage asked: So I was looking through future sight and I found the card ghostfire, which is a colourless sorcery with red mana in the casting cost. The flavour text also references Ugin. Care to explain?

markrosewater:

No. It is a very interesting card though.

Alright, Its motha fukken story time. Last night I dropped off that pull list I mentioned yesterday. Today I picked it up and they were short a few key cards, so its off to the back up LGS. Anyways, I arrive and give them the rest the list, and while I’m waiting the other fucker workin there asks…

Are you kidding it’s #TeamDamia all day for me. How else are you supposed to fuel them spell shapers?

Right? Diving witch into laboratory maniac into no deck is not only easy as hell with damia, but fucking hilarious.

Damia is off the chain. Id like to see sidisi try to break insidious dreams.

Yeah, mang. Most of his argument was Damia is cmc 7 and sidsi is cmc 4. Hell, that was the whole argument. That and he tried to counter my “always full hand” argument by saying she wouldn’t drop til t7 and I’m like, thats why I run a good bit ramp, shes dropped no later than t6 and I’ve managed t2 twice.

Ugh, it was just a super exhausting argument that didn’t need to happen let alone from a LGS worker.

okay I gotta ask: how’d you manage a turn 2 Damia?

shevatthewindiscalling asked: I attended a small standard tourney last night at an LGS with my wife. We unfortunately left after the second round because of the hostilities she was experiencing because of her gender. Do you find on your end you hear much regarding the issues of non-male treatment in Magic? Do you feel it's improving?

markrosewater:

Let me use this question to say something I’ve been wanting to say.

Every time you are unkind to another Magic player, be it in a game, online or through whatever interaction, regardless of your reason, you are hurting the game, you are hurting the community, you are hurting the store you play in, you are hurting the place you gather - most of all, you are hurting other people.  

One of the reasons I love the Magic community is because of the kindness they show one another. Don’t be the person that makes Magic something ugly for someone. You love how the Magic community has opened up for you and made you feel welcome. Well, pass that along. 

Just imagine that every interaction you have with someone new is the interaction you would have wanted when you were new. A lot of people are attracted to gaming because it is somewhere they feel welcome when there are many other places they do not. Please, please, please do not take that away from people.

Be an ambassador of the game.

Be someone who makes others’ lives better rather than worse.

Be the better person.

Surrak Dragonclaw (2GUR)
Legendary Creature - Human Warrior
Flash Surrak Dragonclaw can’t be countered. Creature spells you control can’t be countered. Other creatures you control have trample.
6/6

As a blue mage who loves to say “nope!”, I hate this card.

I don’t really like how both this and Anafenza feel like sideboard cards. I know they’re powerful against any opponent but it doesn’t feel very Khanly when the cards seem to say “use her against delve” or “use him against blue based control”. The other three khans feel like they work with your clan rather than against your opponent.I’m aware this sounds pretty illogical and but I don’t think I can express it any better. Does anyone else get this feeling or am I just crazy?

Pretty sure giving other creatures you control trample without a chance of interacting at instant speed is helping your own clan. Giving all your other creatures the can’t be countered clause is just the cherry on top.

^ this. Surrak is top tier when it comes to the khans. Flash, uncounterable, undercosted, and grants trample and uncounterable to the clan with the beatsticks.
