Happy MUCThanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!

The Feast - 2
Join Forces — When The Feast enters the battlefield, starting with you each player may pay any amount of mana. Put X charge counters on The Feast, where X is the twice total amount of mana paid this way.
0: Gain X Life, where X is the number of charge counters on The Feast, then remove a charge counter. Any player may activate this ability, but only once per turn, and only any time you could cast a sorcery.

If you missed last year's card don't worry, you can check it out right here.

We went with an artifact this time. Mostly because last year's was already a World Enchantment and you should be able to have both on the battlefield.

We hope you enjoy our silly card! Have a Happy Thankgiving from Snow Covered Swamp!

RCotD #226

Random Card of the Day #226:

Aura Craft - 1U
Gain control of target Aura that's attached to a permanent. Attach it to another permanent it can enchant.

I actually have a bit of story behind this card. Back when I was a noob and not a Rules Advisor, this card functioned very similar to Blatant Thievery. Come to think of it, I don't even know how I thought it said "gain control of target permanent" now that I think about it. I should probably read the whole card. Whatever, it was kitchen table magic and nobody cared and let it resolve like that anyways.

As for the actual card, it's pretty bad. In Limited I could see it being okay with typical "freeze" cards like Singing Bell Strike or Ice Cage but even still it's a really low value card and wouldn't make the cut... basically ever. But that would be the format it would be played in.

Unless you make a gimmick enchantment EDH deck with Zur the Enchanter and Isochron Scepter. That could be fun.
Limited 2/5
Constructed 2/5

Any way Desert Bus starts in just under 2 hours this year it looks better than ever. If you are a fan of us and dont know what it is, well then I have been failing this year. Desert Bus is a charity event put on my Loading Ready Run where they play a game non stop until the donations stop coming it. Now if this was a fun game it wouldnt be that great instead its a real time driving sim where you make an 8 hour drive through a desert with 0 interesting things happening...then you drive back. Any way its for childs play and there are a ton of giveaways and auctions too! Check our the site

We always support a good cause and like last year our resident craft slave has something made for this year. Check out PennyLane's stuff:

Alright guys I expect you all to be watching and donating. LOLZOR OUT!

Halloween Special!

Happy Halloween:

Trick-or-Treat - 2BR
World Enchantment
At the beginning of each player’s end step, that player may choose target opponent. That opponent may look at the top card of his or her library. If it is an instant or sorcery, he or she may reveal the card and cast it without paying it’s mana cost. If he or she doesn’t, draw a card.

We know, we know. We haven't updated our site in a few months but that doesn't mean we aren't active! As mentioned in one of the posts below we are shifting our medium from being pure text-based. Remember to check out our Youtube and Twitch.TV channels to see if we are live.

But that doesn't mean we gave up on our old time World Enchantment holiday cards. (They are world enchantments because you can only have one holiday on the battlefield at a time.)

RCotD #225

Random Card of the Day #225:

Vertigo - R
Vertigo deals 2 damage to target creature with flying. That creature loses flying until end of turn.

Since it's Monday and we don't have a MUCMonday planned nor ready, here's a RCotD!

Wow. What a bad card. It's a situational Shock and the times that you would want a targeted creature to lose flying is almost irrelevant. I'd almost say that Earthbind is better in every aspect--even card art. It's almost never okay in Limited and no one would even think about running it in constructed.

Limited 1/5
Constructed 1/5

Re-Introducing a new member of the SCS Crew, huh!

Re-Introducing a new(old) member of the SCS Crew: Bit aka Spazmos

It's been a while since we had made a post on our official website. Don't fret though, we actually have been active just on a different medium: Twitch.TV

Here you should be able to catch any of us: Baalhrezem(Sefah), Lolzor, or Spazmos playing a multitude of games. Many times together.

We apologize for the lack of content on our site, but we have been refocusing our efforts on our stream, while we post highlights to our YouTube page.

If you liked reading our articles (we know all of you are missing our MUCMondays), don't fret! We are going to try to get more MtG content on our blog. So stay tuned!

Friday Stream Clip Time! Heartstone Edition

Hey guys, Lolzor here, bringing you another featured clip from our Streams. This one is actually an older clip from one of our Hearthstone area's but we figured with the whole Fireside program going live today it was relevant. Basically it's us showing you how good #ValueBomber is and how to punish greed.

Anyway we should be streaming Sunday after we prerelease and expect to see more content coming your way now that we have some breathing room in our normal lives again.

RCotD #224

Random Card of the Day #224:

Lost in a Labyrinth - U
Target creature gets -3/-0 until end of turn. Scry 1.

Since it's Monday and we don't have a MUCMonday planned nor ready, here's a RCotD!

This card is... okay. It's okay in Limited and falls short in every format that it is not. As a common, I don't really think it would be any more powerful. But I would compare it to Downsize, which is strictly better in everyway.

Limited 2/5
Constructed 1/5

MUCMonday #45.2

Making Up Cards Monday #45:

Since we're getting back into the swing of things, we don't really have a full MUCMonday for you guys, so here is part 2 of last times.

Except it's only a single card. Regardless, I hope you enjoy it.

Lurching Zombie - BB
Creature - Zombie
Lurching Zombie cannot block unless you control another Zombie.

I think the name for this card was supposed to be "Leaning Zombie" where the idea was he leaned on someone and couldn't do anything alone.

Close enough I guess. The set needs to be fleshed out with some common creatures.

Stream Highlights

Baalhrezem's Journey Back into Silver League:

Here's a stream highlight of us playing League of Legends Ranked. To put things into perspective we were losing pretty hardcore. The trick to winning is to never lose faith, and remember that one good teamfight could easily end the game. Click the video to see what I'm talking about!

(may require an ad to be played)

Those blink healthbars though.

As for myself (Baalhrezem) in my journey back into silver, I forgot what it was like to be able to trust nobody but yourself--well and in this case my trusty duo partner, Lolzor.

SCS Live! Captain Scarlett's Big Booty Clip

So since we seem to always be streaming and rarely posting now a days let's try and combining the two! We have posted clips here before but I'm going to try an make this a more regular thing on Fridays.

This is the first of 2 clips from when we were streaming Captain Scarlett's DLC from Borderlands 2.


If you enjoy our content we stream every Sunday and random other days in between over at Not to mention our new youtube account will slowly be populated with all types of highlights.

Alright guys enjoy your weekend and see you Sunday!

RCotD #223

Random Card of the Day #223:

Word of Command - BB

Look at target opponent's hand and choose a card from it. You control that player until Word of Command finishes resolving. The player plays that card if able. While doing so, the player can activate mana abilities only if they're from lands he or she controls and only if mana they produce is spent to activate other mana abilities of lands he or she controls and/or play that card. If the chosen card is cast as a spell, you control the player while that spell is resolving.

Hey guys Lolzor here, sorry we are still in disarray on the site...we are working on it just a very hectic time for us. As usual though we are keeping up with streaming as much as we can.

Anyway to the card now! This is my kind of card I love hand control and weird shit like this. Basically the card says look at opponents hand and cast a spell from it using their mana. This means (as far as i can tell from the infinite rulings on it) any card, land and creatures included. So you just tell them what to do and then was long as that spell is resolving you control that player, make the choices, and see what they see...pretty damn sweet. Its like a mini Mindslaver. You can get a lot done plus gain a lot of info at a 2 cost instant.

In limited this seems decent but in constructed this seems really good. I actually might pick one up for my EDH deck...wanna see if i can get this bad boy on an Elite Arcanist and have some fun.

Anyway limited 2.5/5  Constructed 4/5

RCotD #222

Random Card of the Day #222:

Reaping the Graves - 2B
Return target creature card from your graveyard to your hand.

So first and foremost, I'd like to apologize on behalf of SCS not updating... basically anything on our site. The good news is, we still have been streaming every Sunday (and sometimes in between) on our SCSLive stream (link on the sidebar under Friday). After our hyped up Megaman Charity marathon we took a break and it just kind of nosedived into not updating this site. We will be streaming a Limited MTGO draft/sealed (we're not sure yet) on Sunday if you want to see it live though. (We'll probably make an article of how well we did because it's better than nothing.)

And now back to the card. The card I would compare it to would be Morbid Plunder. Not exactly a fair fight. Less mana-intensity, instant speed, but might only fetch one card as compared to a guaranteed two. But if you compare it to Disentomb, you pay 2 extra mana for instant speed and potential card advantage.

A solid card. It's an okay card in Limited but I think it would really shine in multiplayer formats *cough* EDH *cough*.

3/5 Limited
4/5 Constructed

Born of the Gods Spoilers (Free Article Train 2014) VIDEO EDITION!

Hey everyone, so it's that time of year again...SPOILER SEASON! We decided instead of doing reviews piece by piece this time we would do a big article about all of them. So with out further delay here is our thoughts on the newest set at first glance.
Lolzor had to leave mid way through but Baalhrezem handled it on his own. Leave comments with your own thoughts we'd love some discussion

  (Video lost forever because we messed up.)

Stream Highlight

Bomber is going to need an extended vacation:

Here's a stream highlight from us playing Hearthstone. Mad Bomber is kind of a pet card for Lolzor and I, and he proves how valueable he is this game. Click the video below to watch him in action:

SCS Thoughts on New Revealed Planeswalker:

SCS Thoughts on new revealed Planeswalker:

Kiora Atua - 2GU
Planeswalker - Kiora
+1 :: Until your next turn, prevent all damage that would be dealt to and dealt by target permanent an opponent controls.
-1 :: Draw a card. You may play an additional land this turn.
-5 :: You get an emblem with "At the beginning of your end step put a 9/9 blue Kraken onto the battlefield."
// 2

Alright so maybe it's just me, but I am absolutely fed up with all the new planeswalker's mechanics. So far everything has been:

+ability: defend planeswalker
-ability: card advantage
ultimate: emblem

What happened to interesting planeswalkers like Sarkhan, the Mad? Maybe I'm overreacting, but the biggest planeswalker offenders always seem to be the emblem creators. And not in the way the game is played, it's the creation of the card seems to have no reason. I'm sure there's more to this than I think but I just wanted to get my feelings out there.

As for discussion for the card itself, I'll leave that yo Lolzor when he gets a chance.

Also something something about raising $175 for Child's Play Charity in our Megaman X marathon.

Happy New Years from SCS!

Happy New Years!

Happy New Years - WW
World Enchantment
Vanishing 5
When Happy New Years is put into the graveyard from the battlefield, if it had no time counters on it each player shuffles his or her hand, graveyard, and all permanents he or she controls into their library. Then each player draws 7 cards and each players life total becomes 20.

Continuing the trend of World Enchantment Holidays...IT'S THE NEW YEAR.

Happy New Year everyone this card is obviously simulating the ball drop and eventually fresh start of a new year. It actually seems very fun to put in a deck...I don't know if there is a broken aspect to it...but its hilarious to think about just setting a clock on your opponent.

Anyway we hope you had a great year and have a better one this year. We have lots of stuff planned for our site and we hope you will  stick around as we grow.

See you on Sunday!
