I had a conversation with Human Hireling about Magic 2014 and he told me “Splinters are coming back!” Now, I got out of Magic right around the time of Ice Age (yay, snow-covered lands!) which was, if I recall correctly, juuuuust before Splinters showed up. So I’m waiting for Duels of the Plainswalkers so I can (finally!) play with Splinter Decks.

Which, if I recall correctly, are just goblin decks for non-red players.

Until that happens, however, I’m still playing System Shock 2 and am aghast at how *DEEP* it is and have rediscovered that Heroes VI icon on my desktop.

So… what are you playing?

  1. I am still trucking along through Morrowind.

    I also stumbled onto Might and Magic: Duel of Champions. It is a free to play collectable cardgame. As you play you earn gold and seals (premium currency), which can be used to buy packs containing more cards. It is entirely playable without paying any money, and the only real advantage of paying is getting cards faster. So far, I have found it to be very enjoyable.

  2. So, my magic playing friends haven’t commented much upon the re-inclusion of slivers.

    It’s the change in the legendary rule that is making the news. Now each player can have their own copy of a legendary creature.

    • How much of a game-breaker/changer is this likely to be? Are there that many legendary creatures that people didn’t put in their decks because they knew that everyone else would be using them?

      • Not sure on the details, as I don’t play much myself. But keep in mind that under the old rules, putting your own copy of a legendary into play was often an effective counter against an opponent’s legendary. So you could bring a Clone into play to destroy a legendary creature you couldn’t target directly, for example.
