You might want to specify a year (at least) for those tournaments which does not include such in their name. Either that, or the date of the event for all tournaments. You also might want to make a note of what qualifies a tournament to be eligible for this thread. Just thinking....

When you say the following:

Swarm (Please remember all non-mage objects are also spells)
Creatures with the Swarm trait cannot be targeted by non-attack actions or spells that do not specifically target Swarm creatures.

Does this mean that Flying Creatures can not attack a Swarm Creature? You emphasize that all non-mage objects (the flying creature) is a spell, and that spells can not target them... and I think you have to target something to attack it....

Also, when you say (again about Swarms):

Additionally, they are immune to ... life gain that does not target swarms.

Does this mean that they do not benefit from Innate Life, such as from an Etherian Lifetree?

I'm not entering... just curious. (I don't play on OCTGN, I don't use Promos at all, and I sometimes have disconnection issues at home.)

I was thinking Arcane, in line with Mana Siphon... Earth already has a good one, but I can see your point also.

Mana Wastes
Conjuration - Terrain
Arcane level 1 or Dark level 1
Mana cost 5 (based on Mana Shard cost, increased due to Terrain type and can impact multiple objects)
Objects that channel in this zone gain Channeling -1

I don't think this would be popular as lowered Channeling would generally tend to slow the game down, but could help with a Mana denial strategy (which needs to be a valid strategy IMO), and gives the Wizard an in-school terrain.

You might want to put in something about Freezes and Burns cancelling before Freeze damage.

I will try to make it.

I just put in for PTO for Friday

I guess I'm mostly curious about whether there is enough mana available to do what you want it to do. Please do let us know how it plays out.

Just another thing to have to house rule, I guess.

Is it possible to believe that you apply one Freeze before the other... such that there would be at one time two burns but only one freeze... and thus have the one freeze match off against a burn?

You still have the same issue though with a creature two away from death and a burn when a freeze lands though.

I will try to make it.

I guess I think of it as a kind of Extinguish situation... you wouldn't kill a creature if hit with an attack with Extinguish before removing a burn, would you?

What's the difference? Perhaps the Freeze condition just needs to be reworded?

I would think that the damage from the Freeze would only apply if the creature was actually cold / frozen... when it has burns on it, certainly that can't be the case.

I know what you are saying... the stupid way it was written is just... stupid... so why not just fix the condition?

The new conditions only cause the burns to go away... they never otherwise impact the target creature... so the creature is not killed. In fact, it is better off in that there no longer are any burns on it.

Think of the application of a freeze condition first looking to see if it can be applied to the creature, but before it can cause any other effects, it is cancelled against an existing burn.

me too dave. hope you can make it. I am planning on going, and will see if anyone else will head over as well.

Gale is having one of her knees replaced early in the year, and I have to do two financial closes in January... one early, and then one starting the 20th or so because we are changing our close process... it isn't likely....

I'm not sure that I'm going to be able to go this year, but still am curious whether the IL crew or others will be running games.

there has been nothing official about further arena sets.

Yes, well, I've given up hope on future Arena expansions. I'll also never play Domination or Academy again, so....

Not only that, but I'm doubtful that Academy will have much more that could be used in area, now that I have seen some of the stuff that came out in Monk. The Monk, to me, is weird and has really odd spells. I hope they do stop trying to replicate martial abilities... even if you try to explain it as mana is really ki instead. Those few spells from that produce that I have seen really give me less of a feel that this game is staying on point in terms of genre, and more about finding excuses for validating strange tactics and simulating something less "fantastic."
