I should be there, though I have a nagging suspicion that I forgot an obligation.

I'll be there. Make sure you bring your Big Decks, I've been itching to play all week!

Are you certain of the source of your itching? They have a cream for that now!

I might be late today, since now I have a 5pm meeting to attend. I've already asked Steve to hold things up for me if possible, and hopefully even if the meeting runs long I shouldn't be there much past 6pm.

Neat little trick I learned last night with Clone Shell.

If you kill Clone Shell in response to his etb trigger, the following happens:

1. Clone Shell's etb trigger goes on the stack
2. You kill the clone trigger
3. Clone Shell's ltb (graveyard) trigger goes on the stack, and resolves first
4. Opponent puts the card imprinted on Clone Shell into play (nothing yet)
5. Clone Shell's etb trigger resolves
6. Opponent looks at the top 4 cards of their library and exiles one face down, putting the rest on the bottom

Good to note that Clone Shell's etb trigger is not optional. Also, good to note that this often Time Walks them as well.

I was glad to be on the correct end of this transaction.

I went P1P1 Hand of the Praetors, and didn't look back from there. I ended up with a decent number of infect guys and some great support artifacts (Contagion Clasp, Throne of Geth, and Trigon of Infestation). I ended up going 3-0, beating Steve (RU metalcraft) in the first round, barely getting by Chuck (BW infect) round 2, and pounding some new guy (BW agro) round 3.

I did manage to make things up for Steve though. He asked me to pick out pack for him to buy at the end of the night, and he pulled an Elspeth from it. Magic Touch!
