Q:Will all the planeswalkers in the Commander 2014 products be pre-Mending characters?
Just to clarify because people have been getting this incorrect from what was said at the panel. The cycle of legendary creatures from Commander 2014 is a collection of past characters that people have been asking for in card form. The cycle of planeswalkers are not necessarily all famous characters from the past (although as Teferi demonstrates some might be).
I don’t mind whether they make more oldwalkers cards or not, but creating more blandnew Planeswalkers are a bit lame. Multiverse filled with abandoned walkers …
Q:I remember reading somewhere that before the Mending, WotC refused to turn planeswalkers into cards because any card based on a planeswalker would have to be so powerful that it would break the game. Since it's been confirmed that the new Teferi planeswalker in Commander 2014 is how he was before the Mending, do you feel his card accurately represents the strength of a pre-Mending planeswalker?
The card doesn’t represent everything he’s capable of but rather how much he’s willing to do to help you. : )
This. This really bothered me about the Mending and the motivations behind it. Who said that Planeswalker cards had to represent the entirety of that character’s capabilities? The fact that there have been multiple versions of characters tells us that was never the case. Why did we even need the Mending? And this Teferi tells me it was completely unnecessary to kill off so many iconic characters, and nerf the survivors for the sake of game balance and not focusing on ‘walkers so much.
Except, oh wait, now ‘walkers are the driving focus of the narrative.
Umm walkers were intended to be the driving force of the narrative. That’s one of the reasons for the depowering, because they felt super powerful world creating walkers were not interesting enough of characters, like how so many authors don’t write good superman stories just multiplied for each character. MaRo has been really open and honest about that.
Old Magic fanboys can’t help but complain about current Magic whether WotC makes oldwalkers card or not anyways.
Q:Hello has your friend published her fan magazine? With the anime styled planes walkers on it?
My friend published fanzine with summaries and annotations of MtG novels for Japanese vorthosi who can’t read English novel. For example, my Lin Sivii fanart is just for cover of Nemesis storyline fan magazine.
FYR I’d prefer to say “Manga” for my art style. And I published a series of most beloved/hatred Bluewalker theme fanzine but maybe you never want to know about this contents…
Q:What is happening with omocat ? :-0
someone pointed out how her obsession w shotacon and her shota merchandise is uncomfortably based in pedophilia and she responded by throwing a tantrum on twitter w smash hit tweets like
your personal preference is little boys and you are an adult
"how dare u persecute me for romanticizing the sexual abuse of young boys"
Wow, holy shit.
This website is all over how sexual attraction isn’t a learned trait, but a natural one (as if anybody has to actually clarify). In other words, somebody can’t help what they’re sexually attracted to.
Having a sexual attraction is completely different than acting on that sexual attraction.
But now that there’s some sort of implication that somebody may or may not be sexually attracted to little boys, an obscure attraction next to even the most eccentric of sexual deviations, there’s an uproar.
Keeping in mind that one cannot help what they are attracted to, is it so bad that they’re ONLY JUST attracted to little boys and NOT acting on it?
Thus far, no harm has been done except for a few people thinking “wait, isn’t liking young boys a bad thing?” NO. What’s bad is acting on that attraction by turning that pedophilia into molestation and sexual abuse.
Omocat is not “romanticizing sexual abuse of young boys”. They would have to actually be sexually abusing young boys for that statement to be true.
Consider Omocat’s aesthetic in their art and then consider the people that support it…they’re definitely hip and they’re definitely good looking. That being said, it’s not Omocat that is threatening pedophilia as a fad, it’s the people buying and wearing the product along with the people that admire the style of said Omocat supporters.
Omocat is not at fault.
And before anyone says “creating pedophilia art IS acting on that sexual attraction”, no. Drawing ink on paper is not raping a young boy. The offense is taken on subjective interpretation of the product, again proving Omocat’s innocence.
HOLY SHIT I JUST REALIZED Omocat only speaks about Shotacon as anime and manga, which (if you don’t know) is INK on PAPER. And if you can’t pick up what I’m putting down, that means they’re sexually attracted to something that isn’t real.
you guys need to go outside
Christ this is exactly like the whole Mogeko thing all over again.
This is why we can’t have nice things.
i know people who were sexually abused during childhood and are triggered massively by “shota” and “loli” stuff please do not tell me that celebrating that kind of thing and spreading it around is not harmful
for that matter the sentiments she expressed in those tweets are pretty worrying even outside of this so I don’t get why people are jumping to defend this person at all
imo someone who tries really fucking hard to say that it’s not a creator being a creep but the people who buy their products needs to reevaluate their priorities because the content wouldn’t exist in the first place if not for the creator. the creator isn’t completely innocent, go figure
and tbh if omocat didn’t react in such a pissy way like this it might be easier to buy into the “it’s not MORALLY WRONG to LIKE YOUNG ANIME BOYS” but if we assert that someone can’t help what they’re attracted to, I still think that someone can help how they express that and recognize when it is appropriate to (a shirt that says “I LIKE LITTLE BOYS” is not an appropriate expression really, nor is whining about “I DON’T CARE ABOUT RIGHT OR WRONG BOTH SIDES ARE RIGHT”)
also what Naz said. try telling someone who was sexually abused as a kid that the sexualization of kids “isn’t real”. learn some goddamn boundaries (and did this person seriously call pedophilia a fad)
This is the reason why Anime and Manga shouldn’t exported to West.
Ugin vs Nicol Bolas
Ok everyone the time has finally come to settle who will be the dragon in Khans of Tarkir!
Here are our contestants! The big, the mean, the ever-devious NICOL BOLAS. In the other corner, we have the ghostly, the wise, the benevolent, UGIN THE SPIRIT DRAGON.
Ugin starting it off strong using the time-test Ghost Fire!
But what’s this!? Nicol Bolas goes in for an uppercut!
What a blow! It was just enough to take out Ugin cause Ugin is a wimp.
Well guys that seems to be the end of that, Nicol Bolas is the official- WAIT A MINUTE!!!
WHAT’S THIS? Could it be!
NIV-MIZZET! Wow, I don’t think anyone could have predicted this! Well, I guess that means Niv-Mizzet is going to be in Khans of- SWEET DRAGON JESUS!
That breath attack! It can only belong to one dragon! But that’s impossible! It can’t be, it shouldn’t be, it’s-
BLUE-EYES WHITE DRAGON!!!!!!!!!!!
Wow, just wow. This was quite possibly the greatest battle in all of MtG history. There we have it folks, Blue-Eyes White Dragon will be showing up in Khans of Tarkir, coming this fall.
Sifa was Red/Black tho Baltrice would be fine as mono red but that’d be a harsh blow to Jaya fans
I like Jaya tho, tbh I don’t give a shit about oldwalker fanboys.
I had no idea I wanted this so much. You are no longer alone.
I really like your tags, well I don’t dislike oldwalkers tho. Yes, Agents and Test are damn good even some ppl on MTGS and WotC official forum hate ToM due to personal grudge for the author.
