My first instinct says that this trade is terribly unfair, and that it is Player One who is getting ripped off. Mechborn is a rather good legendary, and while Yagron isn't necessarily fantastic he is the best legendary for an Exiles player. While not every card in Player 1's offer is necessarily very good, it has a number of key cards for various decks, such as Hehkeem the Corrupted, Annihilate, or even Unstable Bomb-Bot. Even the Uncommons are decent cards, namely Kidnapped by Demons and Overcharged Bolt.
Player 2's offer, on the other hand, is mostly full of what I would consider chaff. The only redeeming element is that they are all some kind of premium, but foil is my least favorite kind of premium--and a number of them are simply terrible cards, like Honorable Farewell or Tribal Medicine. In my opinion the only card really of any value is the Gold Logarithmatron.
It's worth noting that trading is highly subjective and highly dependent upon context. If you're sitting on 5 soulbound Mechborns, you can afford to essentially give 2 of them away. And if you're really keen on collecting foils, even if they're never going to see play, then maybe you want the foils. But in my opinion Player 1 is offering a lot--not all of it is good, but some of it is very good--for very little.
If CARDNAME is in your hand or command zone, it plays itself automatically. Whenever CARDNAME enters the battlefield, shuffle three copies of CARDNAME into both players' decks. Then draw a card.
Regardless of which side you're fighting on, nobody likes vermin. Trouble is, vermin like everybody. At least, everybody's food.
Ladies and gentlemen, I have combined Ixxi the Annoying with Tribbles, made them into a beast, and made it everybody's problem. It cantrips, it drains morale, it annoys everyone, and it eats up your resources little by little. In short, I have designed a pest.
Congratulations to the winners and thank you all for participating. The decision was rather close for me--including some last minute changes just before posting--as there were so many cards that I liked.
I would like to nominate Tamerlane. Tamer's good-natured spirit and dedication to the game have single-handedly kept the tournament scene alive in Infinity Wars. His support helped me to run my latest special Lore-themed tournament, and his constant enthusiasm has helped to keep the game alive. He's a regular CDC participant and would run tournaments every week, including the month-long Rift-Runners' League and Weekly Rumbles.
Perhaps speaking most to Tamer's importance and awesomeness is his recent absence. He's been unable to run tourneys or keep up with the forums for the past few weeks and his absence is sorely missed.
Tamer ran an interview series for much of last year and into this one before he started running tournaments almost full time. I've worked closely with him and can say that he is truly a fantastic member of this community, one whose efforts deserve the highest praise.
That's right folks. In spite of all of the talk of the game dying before it could happen again, the calendar keeps moving forward and IW's pulse keeps beeping on life support, no matter how slowly. And that means it's time for another Player of the Year vote. Naturally, this calls for nominations.
The Rules: 1) You can't nominate yourself. 2) You can nominate folks for whatever reason, be it a content contribution, gameplay, or just being friendly. 3) One nomination per person. 4) All nominated parties will be notified and must accept their nomination. 5) Yodo1/Lightmare employees cannot be nominated, but volunteers can. 6) Nominations close on December 31st
There are plenty of great folks in this community. Regardless of all of the hardship and salt, let's take a moment to celebrate that.
