Well done Tim. Good postal bribe to make sure the crows arrived after he already sent his batch off.

Heathen! How dare you imply Godzilla is a B-movie.

Though, you should probably work on a Duel Deck for King Kong; so you can remake Godzilla vs King Kong (will you go with American or Japanese ending?). Who should be King Kong? Uril maybe? Molimo? Borborygmos Enraged?

Just because it's generally a B movie doesn't mean I love it any less. Heck, one of the best movies I've seen this year (and certainly the one I was most excited to see (once I know it was coming out...)) was Shin Godzilla. I'm dying to see it again.

I can certainly try. King Kong was never really my thing, for whatever reason. So I'd need to do a lot more research and come up with a similarly clever idea for a King Kong deck as I did for Animar.

EDIT: Gahiji, Honored One wouldn't be a bad choice for King Kong either.

Isn't a legendary creature? Also, even if I used it for a King Kong deck by pretending it's a legendary creature, I still don't have any ideas for deck building theme. The Godzilla deck at least has a direction even if it's not perfect (or that not everyone will ever agree on what exactly qualifies as a B movie...).

Shabbaman are you by chance a fan of Sid Meier's Civilization?

The idea that you should be able to build your deck however you want and still be competitive is false, and a bad idea to have. Taken to the extreme, that's like making a deck with no removal in it, and then complaining that you can't win because stuff your opponents play gets in your way.

How did you figure that out :wink: TBH the love for the series has diminished over the year: 5 and 6 are too easy for single player. Currently I like more complex games like Europa Universalis or Crusader Kings a lot more. I'm admin at a Civ forum where my signature reads "Our plots are backed with COMETS!".

Back on topic: I see that my package survived the mule tracks of Germany and arrived in the country of destination.

Soon for me is an operative term when dealing with AT&T and Comcast.

Now I have to cut stuff from my cube, which is incredibly hard and almost a punishment. Making this seen a lot like Grixis.

That gift made me realise that I could proliferate the time counters on Varchild's War-riders to donate more tokens. Hurray for bathroom breaks.

So, uh, I got a surprise delivery this year! With a very nice note from Sir Nic B himself and some goodies for my Jaya Ballard deck (including one of the foil mountains I've been looking for!)

Slight hiccup in that I have moved house since last year so it was sent to my old address but I went to the old house and the new tenants were nice enough to send me a text when it arrived today.

Will post pics later but I want to thank Sir Nicol Bolas and whoever else decided to include me in the year's festivities. A most pleasant surprise indeed!

:D

I got my package a few days ago from Segrus, but have been so busy I haven't had time to post before now.

The letter:

The awesome alters:

I've gotta say, I love the Boros/Hammer + Sickle logos! Those really look awesome, and it's great that I can still read the text through it. And the Ivan Drago and Pavlichenko alters are amazing!

Is the lettering on Ivan actual Russian? If so, what does it say?
