Side note: My new hobby is finding Cockatrice "No MLD" games and playing the Stasis version of my Zedruu deck. Basically I know that means the host is a G or UG ramp-derp player and I want to hose him something fierce. It doesn't destroy lands; you just can't untap them.

I approve of this message.

^ I second that question. The idea of enjoying a highball of brewski while playing Magic is a special thing, but are Oregonians really so stone-cold crazy about their beer that they can't think of anything else to do in a place that has beers on tap than sit around and play nerd games?

See, if I had a second complaint, it would be Chaos decks. Really, though, Chaos isn't the problem. Poorly built Chaos is.

The Norin deck I run has been described as a Chaos deck. It's not. It's actually a control deck that has a plan to win. Confusion in the Ranks and Grip of Chaos are control pieces. Warp World is a win condition.

Most times, when I see people touting a "chaos deck," it's full of things like Blue Braids, Mana Flare, Eye of the Storm and Collective Voyage, with no
real win condition. I suppose that works when everyone at the table is playing CrawWurm.dec, but if anyone is playing a remotely tuned deck, it's a one way ticket to an irreparable board state. These kind of decks are not Chaos decks. They're "make the first combo player to untap win" decks. Then there's stuff like Thieves Auction and Scrambleverse. While these aren't combo enablers, they inspire "I don't feel like resolving that nonsense and then trying to get my cards back after the game" moments.

In portland, you're pretty much doing it wrong if your business allows people to sit around and you don't have beer.

It's just how it is here for some reason. We're huge drunks.

At my shop, we don't allow drinks on the table cause of that. It happened. Also, you can't legally drink and carry a weapon.
Soooooo.....beer at a game that can get some people into fights cause some guy hozes another's almost assembled Voltron. :no2:
Some can't hold their liqueur or are angry drunks.

The skits are basically exaggerations on accuracies.


example: the brunch episode. On sunday any place that has breakfast has a huge ass line. Obviously, Tim Robbins isn't in a fort around the corner running the line, but yeah, people fucking get huge hard ons for eating brunch here.


I guess the answer is that it's pretty accurate.


They should do a skit of EDH players here discussing how they want to kick the combo player out of the group, not because he plays combo, but because he brings shit beer.

My least favorite thing is the guy that whenever he is attacked, he whines that the attacker should attack me instead. Its always me, and dip-shit goes on for several minutes how he should not be attacked while the poor attacker keeps insisting that he's still attacking the dip-shit with a victim complex.
