Ooh, that was probably me, 'cause I got a package of loot!

It was obviously from someone who has a deep understanding and appreciation for New England, 'cause it was filled with Dunkin Donuts themed alters!

I'll try to poke my scanner into cooperation and post some pics.


My wife is from CT. Looking forward to seeing the pics. Nudge nudge...

With perfect mana, reasonable removal, disruption, and card advantage, we're back to pitchforks and torches.

Well, I owe a gigantic thank you to Kemev. Here are the cards I received;

Image


Here is me looking at the cards (in order from left to right and top to bottom)
"Nice"
"Sweet"
"Been looking for that"
"Cool"
"Great"
"Alright thats..."
"...HOLY FUCKBALLZ!"

That's pretty freaking amazing. Certainly above and beyond what I was expecting. You have my deepest and sincerest gratitude sir.

Now off to figure out how to shoehorn all these goodies into my deck...

Received my package in the mail, per the tracking number it was chilling there shortly after I had to leave town for a few days unexpectedly. Pics should be up tomorrow sometime as I figure out how to get them uploaded.

The contents were a letter and cards all from Tarkir block, three alters and 7 cards from each Clan.

The altars were a Shaman of the forgotten ways as Santa Clause, a Woodland Wanderer as a Christmas tree, and a morph token as a package with a bow on it.

Each Clan had their Charm, their Patron Dragon Monument and the gain lands and Tri-Land for their clan. Then two marquee cards for their clan:

For Abzan: Duneblast and End Hostilities.
For Jeskai: Narset, Enlightened Master and Dig Through Time
For Sultai: Sultai Ascendancy and Deathbringer Regent
For Mardu: Crackling Doom and Outpost Siege
For Temur: Rattleclaw Mystic and Shamanic Revelation.

A great gift and thank you out to who sent it. = ) (I seem to have misplaced the envelope, and the letter was signed signed Bolas...)

Edit: Here is a link to an imgur album of the photos.

Awesome Swag from JJackson

And thanks once gain to JJackson for the awesome gifts!

Well, the Kiwis are 17 hours ahead of US Eastern. So afternoon of 8 Dec here would be morning 9 Dec there. Considering Viperion confirmed receipt 5 hours after you hinted at him, the tracking might not be wrong, it could be EAK.
