I have done a little research into the new Magic: The Gathering rules which are due out with next year's edition and i am not sure i like them.
Thank you Wizards, thanks again.
Two biggest changes are Mana Burn... gone. It will just cease to exist to make the game "less complicated". Whatever... a little used play mechanic which i found flavorful and brought a bit of strategy into play at times.
Also Combat Damage is going to be redone and is no longer a part of the stack... this is going to remove the "sacrifice in response to..." mechanic and i wonder if i can ever unlearn that! I figured that out back in Chicago... blew me away then. Oh well, we shall see.
That said, DUDES ARE PLAYING CARDS TONIGHT AND IT IS MACHO!!!
