First impressions / rant about "nerdy girls"

If you’re holding a master sword or a keyblade I’m instantly skeptic of you. If you go on and on about how you love something, but then proceed to mix up 50% or more of the facts, I’m skeptic. If you’re trying to be a nerd so people notice you, I’m skeptic.

Sad truth is most “nerdy girls” aren’t…

This is bullshit. You don’t have to know every little detail about something to be considered a “real fan”. I play Magic with a large group of other boys pretty regularly, and I’m the only one who knows how the stack and the phases of a turn work. That being said, I would never even consider telling these guys that that they didn’t really love the game because it’s obvious they do. Why do you think you’re the sole judge on what makes someone a real fan? More importantly, why on earth would girls fake being a fan of something just to impress your crusty ass?

PREACH!

Sure, not all men, but consider this: what have men brought to this world with the exception of death and horror and pain?

You’re right. Men of color have done so much to help us! Bicycle, ac, potato chips, peanut butter, we wouldn’t be where we are today if it weren’t for men of color, they’ve contributed fantastic things.
White men however, have only brought pain. It’s the WHITE men who are the problem. Thank you so much for pointing this out to me!


Seriously you mangled faced, flat butted, bastard, don’t you EVER tell me to be grateful to men. I will come at your life. I will come at your spirit and your sense of self. I have had many of your copy disrespect me before and I swear to you, no one has EVER done it twice.

Oh wow I had thought that legitimate hatred against an entire group of human beings because of a subset of them was just anti-feminist hyperbolic propaganda. Apparently there actually are humans like you. But, for your convenience, here are some things that white men have brought us: The theory of relativity, Asprin, The discovery of DNA, The discovery of atoms, Beer, Calculators, Tumblr, Pythagoras’ Theorem, Lightbulbs, Sewing Machines. Sure white men have brought a lot of negative things into the world but white men aren’t a hive mind. They aren’t one body and shouldn’t be treated as such. Each human is an individual and doesn’t deserve to have a blanket put around their identity because of the actions of others. There are good white men, there are bad white men (respectively Einstein and Hitler), but don’t be presumptuous.

infamousktf asked:

For Koth of the Hammer's +1 ability: If it was activated while no Mountains are tapped, can it still be activated? Will it still turn into a 4/4 creature?

Koth of the Hammer

Unfortunately Koth’s +1 ability targets, so there must be a legal target in order to activate it. You can’t activate the ability at all if there are no Mountains on the battlefield, and the ability has no effect on non-Mountain lands.

You can always activate the ability targeting an opponent’s Mountain if they have one, I guess. But then if your deck doesn’t have a lot of Mountains Koth is pretty bad for you in general.

but if all of your mountains are untapped, you can still activate the ability!

Hi I am Magic newbie and someone should explain to me what a Johnny and a Timmy is (I think that’s the other one idk)

Johnnys feel the need to express themselves in their deckbuilding, and often play combo decks or other janky interactions. Timmies just want the experience of the game, to feel something, and generally gravitate toward BIG creatures and plays. Spikes just want to win and will generally just play whatever will get them that win.

Now the real question is WHY Johnny and WHY Timmy (the name Spike totally fits but the other two names are so randomly boring)

man I don’t know Mark rosewater was thingthink this up at the old wotc one day and just said ah fuck it who gives two fucks and a bluebird
