Well, well.

Before I show off my newly found power, I should explain a thing or two.

I have a Sigarda Vehicles deck- Tribal Humans supported by Vehicles for extra power and reach. It's outside my normal wheelhouse- if we're pursuing a creature plan, I want the bigliest creatures I can find- but I love it dearly and I have the commander altered to be Mercy from Overwatch. Last year, I acquired a number of Grixmas-y alters for that deck, and, well...

My dearest thanks, Sid. I am more than content with your artistry. A certain part of this also provides the much-needed kick in the arse I needed to build a Mono-Blue deck, so that will be my next project.

Merry Grixmas, everyone!

Gurgi! Merci, thank you!!

So, I'm a big magpie and I'm trying to foil out an Eldrazi deck and now, thanks to Gurgi, I'm 10 cards deper into getting that finished. A couple of deadeyes, Esper Panorama and a filigree familiar for Sydri's robot army, Jace for my PW collection, Varchild's & a curse for Norin and the last goblin I need to have all the goblins! Now I have all the goblins! Tremble in fear, my Goblin Army is complete!!

This is brilliant!
Thank you Gurgi & a Merry Grixmas to you all!!

On a sidenote, when my wife saw the envelope of something I bought through Ebay she asked me if those were the cards of my nerd card gift exchange. No, not really, but there's always next year ;)

Glad you like it. I flailed around for longer than I should have looking for the other 2 lands you'd asked for - hence the last second mailing. Figured if I couldn't fill out the wishlist I could at least give you something shiny.

Missed opportunity. What you meant to say was "Of COURSE I didn't spend $300 on those cards! Someone else sent them to me for Grixmas!"

Praise be to the unholy elder dragon, Spacemonaut really brought the goods.

A little background:
A few months ago, in the Rules Discussion forum, there was a topic about flavor fails. Spacemonaut penned an extremely eloquent post about the role of flavor in deck building. Now I fall more on the competitive side, but his post inspired me. We ended up talking about a flavorful Norin, the Wary deck, from the premise that Norin is the shady proprietor of a junk shop and he helped me put together a list. I set the project aside as life got in the way and I forgot about it, occasionally picking up the little pile of cards that I had pulled out to start the deck and then setting it aside. Then the mail came today.

Behold:
https://imgur.com/gallery/pvLzC

Needless to say, now I have to build Norin the Ware-y, although contraptions will be added as well because they fit too well with the theme. Thank you, Spacemonaut. Your package made my week.

Gosh I'm happy to hear that, and to see they made it through safely :D It's an impressive coincidence you wound up as my Grixmas victim.

Contraptions for Norin sounds great!

Go forth and burn some houses down with Vial Smasher. It's what St Nic would want. :twisted:

Shininess is good! Don't worry, the intent of my OP was to give you a range of stuff to pick from. I'm now thinking of some Izzet lands build with Keranos and Kefnet and Seismic Assault or something...

(as you can tell, I'm very flaky with my deckbuilding).

Sorry for the late posting, but I've been so crazy busy of late I've had no time.

I got some awesome stuff from Marit Lage for my Grimlock deck!

Now I have no excuse not to finish this one!

Probably more the fact that to "transform" Grimlock you have to change a Transformer toy's mode, so by including an appropriately-on-theme Grimlock toy, you will always have access to everything you need to "transform" Grimlock.

It's probably the most appropriate non-Magic gift that could be given in a Grixmas gift exchange :D

Primary Voting Post with Scans (when available)
^ This is where prize scans are found and where all parcels are aggregated, summarized, and linked (unless you prefer search each page of the thread to look at the gifts...).
----------------------------------------


It's time to divvy donations with the prize winning vote to end the Grixmas Season. In true Grixmas fashion, you can base your votes on whatever criteria you wish. However, you may not vote for yourself or the gift you received. Parcels that were sent after Christmas are ineligible, sorry.

Each person's gift image(s) post is linked on below (except Coco, whose parcel is ineligible and still awaiting arrival). Review all the gifts received and use the Recipient's Name on the spoiler tag to vote (because that is easier than tracking who sent to whom, and it is already linked by who received)

People that did not participate this year are still eligible to vote (the more votes, the better).

This is what I need from everybody:
- Please PM the following quote to Bolas with the names of your nominations:

Quote:
<NAME> for Winner Nomination (worth 5 points)
<NAME> for Runner Up Nomination (worth 3 points)
<NAME> for Gutter Nomination (worth 1 point)


I will tally all the votes received by Midnight 8 Jan 2018, post scores and PM the winners.

----------------------------------------
Spoils
----------------------------------------

Barring any unforeseen Lost Package replacement parcels, here is the current donation tally and breakout for prizes in the season ending vote. One Package has not yet been received.

Here is a list of all the cards up for grabs:

List:
Winners - First place picks two of the following, runner up gets the third:
Containment Priest - Invocation Foil
Bloodstained Mire - Alter
Sylvan Library - Korean 4th Ed Black Border Alter

Common - All three will receive a set of the following:
Altered Amonkhet Lands
Command Tower - Alter
Commander's Sphere - Alter
Sol Ring - Alter
Cat Dragon//Dragon DFC Token - Alter


Additional Prize Choices:
Winner gets first choice of each category. Runner up gets second choice, and Gutter winner gets the dregs. Grab bag is split between all three winners.
