Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Wall for Ninja (page 1)

Did you go to the Oath prerelease? I went to two of them.

Ended up going 3-1 for the first of them. Had a W/B deck with no real archetype. Had a bunch of bombs though. Got Linvala, who is just as powerful in limited as I expected. Also Ob Nixilis and Emeria Shepherd, which I used to recur my Ob Nixilis. I also got an Endbringer and a Deceiver of Form, but barely got to use them. Hey, at least they soaked up removal. Lost to a BG Eldrazi Swarm deck.

Second one I ended up splitting since I had already spent twelve hours in a row playing Magic and I was basically spent for the day. I'm still surprised I managed to go undefeated with the deck. It was a really grindy WB Allies deck. I would gunk up the board until the point where I could just alpha strike with either two Cliffside Lookout pumps or with a swarm of zombies from Drana's Chosen. The real all-star was Vampire Envoy. A 1/4 flier that gains you a life when it becomes tapped is insanely good on defense. It's a huge player in so many archetypes, working well with Rally, Support, Lifegain, and Cohort.

Promos were lame, Eldrazi Mimic and Dimensional Infiltrator. Pulled a Nissa from prize packs though. Also got a Mirrorpool, which I'm putting in the Mono-Green Eldrazi Ramp deck that I'm building for Standard.

It pains me to say this, but I think I'm done with Marvel's 616 continuity.  I've been a full blown Marvel fanboy for since I could read, but I don't think I can read them anymore.  

I really don't care if Bobby Drake is gay, Thor is female, or if Cap is black.  I've honestly enjoyed some of those stories (Thor and Cap in particular). Marvel did an ok job with Thor, but that has gone nowhere. Cap passes on his mantle a few times. But Iceman? Bobby Drake is an established character, one who's always had a distinct personality. Retconning his entire character is a huge low blow to anyone who gives a damn about the X-Men. It's saying Marvel doesn't care about those fans anymore.  I want the writers to write compelling stories, a character shouldn't be defined by external sources such as angry social justice warriors. But collectively, it's just starting to seem like Marvel is more interested in publishing comics that pander to this new wave of political correctness for the sake of doing it.  

Marvel will never be what they once were and I'm willing to accept that. I'm willing to move on to the MCU, which is still wonderful high budget action. I'm still hanging on to DC comics by a thread. I'll still always love reading new Deadpool material, and I'll still love picking up some alternate realities. Sadly for now, I will no longer be making my weekly stop to the comic book store to  pick up all the new material.

All New All Different is the beginning of a new era in Marvel Comics, so there's not going to be a better time for my sendoff.

I encourage you all to stay away from Marvel Comics until we learn that they can respect the dedicated readers.

Love him or hate him, TB is a great guy. I enjoy his passion for the community and the average consumer. I don't agree with TB's opinions a lot but his passion for games and his excellent presentation keeps me coming back to his videos.

For those of you unaware, he just announced that his cancer has developed to the point of it being incurable, as well as having a life expectancy of 2-3 years.

"**** this stupid disease. The average is going up after I'm done with it." He's a stubborn guy, he'll pull through.  It takes a lot to be cynical and hopeful.

Best of luck to him and his loved ones.

For the most part with #144 I was mainly impressed with the art. Just seeing those heads on the sticks was very emotionally impactful thanks in a large part to Adlard's fantastic work. As for the unfinished storyline aspect, I say we'll have to see what they do with future issues. I trust the Walking Dead people to make a great story. In my opinion it is far and away the best comic series out currently. A damn sight better than the mainstream crap being put out by Marvel and DC right now.

Comics are in a pretty sad state right now when we look at the big two. DC hasn't had anything at all good since they rebooted with the New 52 (except if we count Fables under the Vertigo label). Marvel hasn't had anything since way back in 2007 when Planet Hulk and Civil War finished up.

Fox Universal once again proves how incapable they are of writing superhero movies, Fantastic 4 edition.

- Human Torch isn't a token insert black character. He's a hasty and naive white kid who lives carefree. Universal like to try and show just how accepting of equality they are by using diversity in every damn movie, but it's gone so far it's insulting. It's just a cash grab that they don't really believe in because they are Fox, the most conservative, ignorant, racist, and straight white male garbage of the earth.

- Why is the team on some alien planet? The first movie got it right. Space. In a ship. Nowhere else.

- He and his sister aren't adopted. They have a serious backstory.

- Doom wears armor, that isn't mutation. He's also the prince and king of an empire.

- Thing has no pants. That's because Uni hates outfits, proven by x-men.

- THE FANTASTIC FOUR AREN'T DOGS OF THE MILITARY. If this movie is set in modern times, shouldn't they be hunted by the government for being mutants? Like the x-men?

- The CG in this new movie looks awful, the old ones looked better.

So what looks right?

- Susan looks OK, but they shouldn't push her motherly attitude on characters other than Johnny. Oh wait, that's irrelevant now!

- Reed having autism and being a child progeny. Good job.

I cannot stand youtubers who shut down critical fans. PewDiePie, TB, etc, I've found to be overly critical of their fan base. No longer do they get ad-revenue, likes and views from me. I find it highly unprofessional to criticize your viewers so publicly. The moment you stop reading your comments is the moment you stopped caring about your fans. The moment you disable them, you view it as a job instead of entertainment. When that happens, I have no reason to support you anymore.

People are allowed to have opinions about your videos and content. Life isn't one big circle jerk. If you don't like them, ban them. Simple.
