as long as the match duration is of enough length to enable slower/newer players to compete, or to give slower build up decks enough time to compete, then having the match determined by an actual winner is fine. 75 minutes is borderline for time limit I think. 80-90 would be optimal. a lot of matches end about 60ish, but yet enough go to time that 15 more minutes probably makes enough of a difference that the number of tied matches should drop dramatically. I do not know what the time constraints for the qualifiers are, but I am hoping we get closer to the 90 minute range.

would have to check, but I don't think maim can target a mage, but could be wrong. I think everyone is missing the very simple answer here. just put in a second cassiel.

as one of the two people who inspired the nerf ruling at origins 2013, I would like to say I think the ruling was both required, and sufficient. I think it struck a great balance to the card. elegant. good ruling on battle fury for the same reason, as well as the temple of light. very few things (now not as much ) were allowed to have an effect and not cost some mana. so the temple ruling was great imo. holy absolutely does not need help. it is very competitive.

I also think same with the wizard training ruling. elegant. needed badly. makes all schools feel much more unique as a result. very much opened up the design space for new mages without having to always work around how the wizard would always be better at some elemental school than the new mage being designed. the tower ruling however may have been just a little too much. it definitely needed to be changed. but they tried to avoid a complete rewrite of the card I would guess. I think that it may have been better to serve as a stationary wand. no changing of the spell or perhaps require a quick spell action and mana to swap the spell for a new one. still nice, but not broken. in that case would be more like the nature conjurations that can be used when they are cast. now no one really uses them any more. as a stationary familiar its usefulness has been cut too far. but hey all of the other updates were super strong, so one a little too far off can easily be forgiven rather than leave the tower as it was in its uber power.

dave is correct here. they do count as living objects for determination. note, actually all permanents on the board are objects, including enchantments.

option 1.  the resultant dmg is assigned to source. untyped. had a burn been inflicted then a burn goes on source. if source is burnproof the burn does not get applied.

General Discussion / forum name

I thought this would be an interesting topic.

we have had a lot of new members recently, which is awesome. together with many of us who have been here for a long while, thought it would be cool to see if folks would give some history or info about how they chose their forum name here.

mine comes from the fact that in my second tournament, gencon 2013, we had to register our book and as part of that, we had to name our book. I was playing an air wizard for that event, and came up with zot for all of the zapping and lightning bolting/blasting things I planned on doing. I joined the forum shortly after that event so stuck with that as my forum name.
