The second is part of what I sent to Inkeyes22, not part of what I received.

Sorry, you'll have to wait for all votes to be in to get names associated with scores.

Hello, everyone.

I am pleased to report that my Grixis gift has arrived, and I am shocked at the level of effort Masked Thespian has put in to it. I won't report exactly what I have received until I figure out how to upload pictures of it all, but I will say that Sydri loves all of these alters, and I will be using every one of them. You are far too modest.

So, I have been blessed this year with many wonderful toys. My dear thanks once again to Masked Thespian for his hard work, it is very much appreciated.

We begin with Sydri herself, looking very festive in her lab:

And then we move to Dominaria, where Teferi is strapping on a fake beard and doing a cunning impression of Saint Bolas. Complete with spin- ah, reindeer!

Lux Cannons I asked for, and Lux Cannons I did recieve. Five in all- a foil for the deck with "Merry Grixmas" engraved on the side, and four more to use as tokens when we clone them.

Where would we be without a Grinch at Grixmas?

In our Grixmas stocking we also find a flood of presents. Candy canes, golden rings, a new chair to sit on, and an attractive blonde to have dinner with.

But here's the real surprise. We have our cannons, now we just need a super-secret base to hide them. Where better than Command Tower?

Last but most certainly not least, we learn that the bright lights of our cannons will be seen in every swamp, sea, and plain across the multiverse...

Thank you once more, and a Merry Grixmas to everyone!

Specifically, a Grinch with The Naughty List. After all, you see Geth's name crossed out, and then...

I like my blondes to be attractive below the shoulders too. To each their own, I guess. :P

With 9 out of 17 votes in, it looks like it is a blow out for 1st place...

Granted if the other half have completely different opinions that could change.

With perfect mana, reasonable removal, disruption, and card advantage, we're back to pitchforks and torches. And it's about to get worse for those who do not enjoy the game as Richard Garfield intended, playing as few win conditions as possible and prompting concession after all hopes (and spells) are lost. - Shaheen Soorani

I have sent another Package out and have 2 more coming in, so there will be a slight update to the prizes (see below).

Also, Plants vs Zombies tokens are still there, but I will supplement them by making 2 additional sets of 10 custom double-sided tokens. Details in PM for the 2 winners that would like to consider this option.

New Prize Structure:

Willbender: Winner Duo and first choice of 1 ea from the Land, Sol Ring, Artifact, W, U, B, R and G categories. Any of the above may be replaced 1 for 1 with a Grab Bag Item.

DarksteelElephant: Second choice of 1 ea from the Land, Sol Ring, Artifact, W, U, B, R and G categories. Any of the above may be replaced 1 for 1 with a Grab Bag Item.

Thanks for putting everything together. My apologies for not getting in donations...I did get a couple done, but I've been having real problems retaining any focus. It's not out of lack of wanting to donate that's the problem.

Well, since it seems like my Grixmas present has been lost in the mail for the SECOND YEAR IN A ROW which I am unreasonably angry and upset about.... :evil: :evil: this is what it was.

I had a spare Jeff Easley metal deck box (I don't remember exactly but I think it was one of these)
Image


I also threw in some cards I had lying around; I don't remember what I put in, except for a foil Eternal Witness, foil Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker, and a Rock Hydra where I'd labelled the each of the heads with the name of a Rules Committee Member and me as the guy fighting them.

Oh, and 65 Storm Crows. One foil one, about 4 or 5 unaltered, and the rest with their text box blanked out and this poem written on them (one card per line)
Once upon a tourney dreary, while I Pondered, weak and weary
Over many a copy of Spell Snare and Shrouded Lore
While I nodded nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping
As of someone gently casting, casting a spell of yore.
"Tis some trinket," I muttered, "this spell of yore. Only this, and nothing more"

Deep into that tank ‘twas peering, long I sat there, wondering, fearing
Doubting, dreaming of spells no mortal ever dared to dream before.
But the silence was unbroken and my foe, he gave no token
And the only words there spoken was my whispered words "What for?"
Answered he: "Merely this, and nothing more"

Nodding there I gave permission, when, with great and strong precision
In there came a ghastly crow from the ancient days of yore.
Perched upon the playmat, just so I could deplore
Perched, and sat, and nothing more.

“Nothing farther” my foe then uttered, not a feather he then fluttered
Till scarcely more I muttered “Other friends have flown before
On the next turn he will leave me, as my hopes have flown before”
Quoth the Storm Crow: “Nevermore!”

And the Storm Crow still beguiling my shocked expression into smiling
Straight I wheeled my cushioned seat in front of bird, and mat, and floor
Then upon the cushion sinking I betook myself to thinking
Fancy unto fancy, thinking what this ominous Crow of yore
What this grim, ungainly ghastly – gaunt and ominous Crow of yore
Meant in croaking “Nevermore”.

There I sat engaged in guessing, but no syllable expressing,
To the fowl whose fiery eyes now burned into my bosom’s core;
This and more I sat divining, with my head at ease reclining
On the playmat’s rubber lining, that the foe was gloating o’er
And the bird sat there, surviving, with the foe gloating over,
And attacking me for one point more.

Then methought, the air grew denser, perfumed from an unseen censer,
Or perhaps the smell of the gamers who need to bathe once more
“Wretch!” I cried, “thy caster lent thee, by this mana he hath sent thee”
“Respite! Respite and desist from attacking me I implore!”
“A Moment’s Peace! Stop this assault and halt this war!”
Quoth the Storm Crow “Nevermore”

“Prophet!” said I, “thing of evil, prophet still, if Bird or Devil!
Whether Tempter sent, or tempest tossed thee here ashore!
Desolate yet all undaunted, on this Desert land enchanted
On this home by Horrors haunted, tell me truly I implore
Is there – is there hope upon these shores? Will I cast but one spell more?”
Quoth the Storm Crow “Nevermore!”

“Be that word our sign of parting, bird of Storms!” I shrieked, upstarting,
“Get thee back into the Aether and Smite no more!
Leave no black plume as a token of that lie which thee hath spoken!
Leave my battlefield unbroken! Quit the mat, and field, and floor!
Take thy beak from out my heart, and return from where you were before!”
Quoth the Storm Crow “Nevermore!”

And the Storm Crow never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting
On the battlefield, upon the mat, as was before
And his eyes have all the seeming of a Demon that is dreaming
And the life totals are decreasing as he attacks once more
And my records from that game loss and match loss and more
Shall be lifted – Nevermore!

Image

Wow, that really sucks. Do you have any other problems with sending out mail? Almost makes me wonder if someone is intercepting them at some point in the line...
