The DCI, the ruling body for Magic: The Gathering tournaments has banned two cards for the Standard tournament type. Stoneforge Mystic and Jace the Mind Sculptor are no longer legal for tournament play in standard, with the somewhat strange exception that, as long as you are playing with the “War of Attrition” Event Deck (and no alterations are made to it) you may still use Stoneforge Mystic in standard tournaments. This is the first time a card has been banned in Standard since 2005. Have you come up against these two in the past? Are you happy about the change?
I’ve spent a good deal of time playing the original Duels of the Planeswalkers which I would categorize as very enjoyable. It’s always nice to find an online game of magic even when all my friends are asleep (because it’s before 1pm).

The azure bug is out of a home!Â And soâ€™s the giant squid!Â And soâ€™s the Rat-man!Â For a change of pace, Batman fights the Jokerâ€¦Â Kirk gets his ride pimpedâ€¦Â Constantine gets his groove backâ€¦Â And Rodrigo ends up sword-fighting his way past the palace guard and riding out of town in style, only to end up huddling in an inn while a reality storm passes overhead.
