    If you're running a Manifest deck with blue, you should include Kheru Spellsnatcher and Thousand Winds. With Manifest, as you mentioned with Hooded Hydra, creatures with Morph can be flipped for their...

  • Atlas posted a message on the post The Powerbombcast Episode 15 - The Royal Grumble.

    The story of Shinsuke Nakamura is an interesting one, especially as it related to Hiroshi Tanahashi. I don't really watch wrestling any more, but I was way into puroresu in the mid-2000s when Nakamura...

  • Atlas posted a message in the forum topic Game with the most time played outside of a MMO?. on the General Discussion board

    I know for a fact that I am over 1,000 hours on Oblivion, Civilization 5, and Crusader Kings II. I can't really guess on how long I played games as a kid, but if you told me that I played 2,000+ hours...

    I HAVE OPINIONS ABOUT OTHER PEOPLES' OPINIONS ARGHHH.The only games on their top ten I've played are South Park, Far Cry 4, and like 30 minutes of Hearthstone. Seems like a fine list, I guess. I dunno...

    The clock hit midnight while I was playing Diablo 3, so that for both.

  • Atlas posted a message in the forum topic Review Discussion of Dragon Age: Inquisition. on the Dragon Age: Inquisition board

    I was sceptical for the longest time, but in my heart, I always held out hope. I knew that there was a chance that this game would be great. I still believed in BioWare. I'm very excited to hear that ...

  • Atlas posted a message in the forum topic MOBA vs. CCG. on the General Discussion board

    I've never played a MOBA, but I got way into Magic: The Gathering last year. I've been to local Magic events (Friday Night Magic), and my local play group is very courteous, polite, and friendly, if a...

  • Atlas posted a message in the forum topic When were you last on a justified hype train?. on the General Discussion board

    I guess the last two big ones would be BioShock Infinite and Europa Universalis IV. Before that, XCOM: Enemy Unknown and Skyrim were huge hype train games for me.I'm not really on the hype train for a...

  • Atlas posted a message in the forum topic Letter from the Editor discussion.. on the General Discussion board

    Wow, I feel like Jeff summarised my own views on this issue perfectly. There may be a valid discussion on ethics in game journalism that needs to be had, but GamerGate is not the way to do that. They'...

  • Atlas posted a message in the forum topic new content on giantbomb you would like too see?. on the General Discussion board

    Patrick has discussed the potential of a series where he tries to work out how to play Crusader Kings II. There is no Giant Bomb content that would make me happier than if this became a reality.As muc...

  • Atlas posted a message in the forum topic you guys worried about Ebola?. on the Off-Topic board

    I think if anything, the rhetoric and media coverage on Ebola has made me highly dismissive of its potential deadliness/contagiousness. Maybe I should be more frightened than I am.Nahhh.

  • Atlas posted a message in the forum topic ThatPinuino's Magic Lessons: Delving for Secrets. on the Magic: The Gathering board

    I am honestly surprised that Tarmogoyf hasn't been banned in Modern yet, and yet cards that hose it like Deathrite Shaman did get banned. It's just super busted and efficient, and doesn't really do an...

  • Atlas posted a message in the forum topic Which artists do you want to see make video games?. on the General Discussion board

    From movies, Darren Aronofsky. Just to see how dark and far-out he would go with it.From music, either Anthony Green, Cedric Bixler-Zavala, or Aesop Rock. Green would make some sort of delightful indi...

  • Atlas posted a message in the forum topic ThatPinguino's Magic Lessons: Why Fetch-lands Are So Good. on the Magic: The Gathering board

    I opened two fetchlands at the pre-release, including one in my colours (played Abzan, got G/W fetch). Almost took the sting away from going 0-3 and dropping from the event. Normally I'd stick around ...

  • Atlas posted a message in the forum topic ThatPinguino's Magic Lessons: Why Fetch-lands Are So Good. on the Magic: The Gathering board

    As mostly a Limited junkie, I don't quite get why people are so excited about fetchlands - aside from the financial benefits, it's hard to not be disappointed when the rare in your draft booster is a ...

    Russian Circles are an instrumental band, but make some of the best, most layered, most intense metal around. Their most recent album, Memorial, was really good, but Empros is their magnum opus.Other ...

    I've been watching the Falcons-Bengals game. It's been pretty dire for the Falcons, and the score-line flatters them slightly; Cincinnati stalled in the red zone a couple of times and missed two FGs. ...

    @azrailx: Time will tell whether the Titans are as good as they looked or if the Chiefs are really just that bad. I didn't watch the game, but if Jake Locker stays healthy and Whisenhunt's offence is ...
