Fuck MTGO combo players, hope they get timed out.

This is a absolutely ridiculously poor attitude to have.

Eh, it is really the only time I get upset at the game. Think it is that too many of them get the attitude that once they get the combo everyone should concede and I want them to show me they won't fuck it up.

Used to be fine with it until three or four people in a week asked me to concede as soon as they play the first card of the combo. Nope, show me you got it and know how it works.

Actually the opposite of this and usually concede at FNM or help out my opponent. Just bugs me when online someone plays one card and says "GG?". No, show me.

What's the pile shuffle rule? I also don't get what's so wrong with pile shuffling the first time. You do it randomly and make uneven heaps, and then mash shuffle them randomly back together and then do a couple of mash shuffles after it.

You're only supposed to do it once per individual game with the purpose mainly being to count your deck. I have actually called a couple opponents out on it at my LGS if they do it while we're running low on time. Hate picking up draws even when stakes are like 5 packs lol.

Dudes like that are the worst.

I had a guy try and pull that on me at an FNM during BFZ, because I was "pile shuffling in a pattern". Nevermind that I was going like this

1 9 3 7 5
10 2 8 4 6

Followed by me scooping them up top to bottom left to right, then mash shuffling 4-5 times. I think he was just salty that my $70 Mono White Humans was beating his $600 4C Ramp because of the value of Consistency (12 One Drops, 12 2 Drops, 8 Three Drops, 4 4 Drops, and 3 flex spots).

At the Baltimore Modern Classic the guy next to me called a judge saying that on of the other players sleeves was backwards, so he was marking the deck. The other player ended up telling the judge that the guy that originally called the judge was looking at the bottom of his deck to get information. They got into a five minute argument where the judges asked the players in either side for their story and ruled it nothing.

As soon as each player drew their seven cards, the guy called for a judge again. My match was over before they even started playing. And this was in round 9 at the middle of the field, miracle needed to get prize section.

Yeah I don't know what the fuck other people are on about. I made the final four of a legacy tournament off a player who thought I should scoop when he started his high tide combo but when I refused, he tried to go through it he ended up fucking it up. If you are going to be a lame combo slut you better be able to show me you know how to pull it off. Because that's the only time a combo deck requires even a modicum of skill.

All this based on a picture? I mean you may end up being right, people get guesses correct some of the time, but I'd like to put it on record that you're literally making things up based on an image lol

... oh. It's the third most expensive card in the set.
