I'm guessing Lithic Reform is worded the way it is to work with some of the cards from last September? I see no other good reason for you to not phrase it "mill three cards, then..."

I like to imagine Jesus adding "not you, mom!" to his "casting the first stone" speech after she ruined it at some point because "immaculate conception" doctrine. Is that funny? I think it's funny.

IDEA: Planeswalker with a "Skip your draw step" static ability & {+1} that just does something minor like gaining 1 life... but their minus is (possibly a less-wordy version of) "{-X} Look at the top X+3 cards of your library. Put one or more of them on top of your library in any order, one or more of them on the bottom of your library in any order, one or more of them into your graveyard, and the rest into your hand. You lose life equal to the number of cards put into your hand this way."

Since it's paying loyalty, not sure that the life payment is necessary. Compare to Jace, Unraveller of Secrets, which is a 5 mana permanent that just lets you to +1 to scry and draw.

It seems like what you're considering here is a card that lets you dig, keep a bunch and throw away a bunch.

Have you looked at Moonlight Bargain?

Does the moth seer from Hollow Knight seem Jewish-coded? Please ask an actual Jewish person and relay their answer, in addition to providing your own.

I'd ask them directly, but the only person I kinda sorta knew and who was definitely Jewish, was someone I only knew through Twitter.

I asked the only people I really knew who might have some insight, on tumblr, and they provided an answer, and hopefully there'll be more info in the response: https://www.tumblr.com/talenlee/710740751494103040/i-got-asked-if-i-knew-any-jewish-media-critics-who?source=share

Really just not in my area of expertise though.

What is boring or bad about how most people talk about games? I like lots of forms of game discussion so I find the idea that most is bad to be confusing, and I don't particularly just want to guess what you're trying to get at from the examples you gave.

The majority of game discussion is considering games entirely as commercial products for distribution and sale, and want to have a review score at the end. If this doesn't strike you as the majority, then you're probably discounting a large quantity of material without realising it.

Why'd you switch here and away from CC?

on curiouscat, I got a lot of spam and mostly, the daily questions were tedious and annoyed me.

Shy Bean asked 10 months ago

If most people who talk about games are doing it in boring/bad ways, who are the exceptions? Obviously yourself (and I'd be curious what your favorite videos/posts are about it), but is there anyone else that stands out?

Given the chance - would you spend one (1) day as a Labrador retriever? ?

It does seem to be an experience that's largely anxiety free, but how messed up and weird is my mental space that I thought 'Oh I dunno, I think I wouldn't be very good at it.'

Shy Bean asked 11 months ago

Do you like video games?

Hi there, test thing I pressed to see how it works. I have never eaten a video game and I don't know why you'd bring it up like that.
