    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I sold out of that a long time ago.

    I was big on black/green discard decks.

    My wife made a turny-legal 40 card all red deck that got it's first kill on turn 4, and averaged 8 kills in 10 turns. It was mostly direct damage, urza land, moxes and sacrificial goblins, with the occasional enchant which doubled her mana pool. She would only ever target the player with her spells, never a creature, regardless.

    The deck was highly vulnerable to everything imaginable. Land destruction, creature attacks, lock downs...you name it.

    Her strategy for countering these threats was to kill her opponent before those cards could be played....a strategy I still respect

    When I'm giving spec or gear advice in WoW, and the player is worried about his dps'er needing more protection over offensive buffs, I kindly remind them that it can't hurt you if it's dead

    This is a signature that sums of EvE but also alot of PvP. To win, someone has to lose. And being on the losing side is never fun. The difference between winners and losers is that winners have learned from their mistakes after losing a great many times and not given up.

    Anyone know an add-on to allow me to write a macro greater than the 255 character limit?

    How was it tourney legal with Mox's and Urza lands? O.o unless you're talking eons ago, when MT:G was fun and interesting and they hadn't started going "Know all your old cards, they're no good anymore"

    -.-

    No clue on your addon thing. I'm just now starting to learn the wonders of Add-ons since my friends back home have got me on the damn game again. Good way to keep in touch and do something with a group of friends 5 hours away.

    It's like being able to press a button and *poof* your gram of cocaine is now a 1/2lb bag of hash. Tired of hash? Press the button again and *poof* you're back to cocaine.

    Great analogy between WoW and crack.

    I have a few the really help my hunter and shammy but I won't bore folks if no one's into using macros.
    I use macros, only way to play.

    Look to Rexxar if you plan on raiding. There's a great selection of guilds whether you're rolling horde or alliance.

    A few of my toons:

    Riiker - 80 Human Rogue

    Zandiir - 74 Dorf Priest

    Abraxiis - 32 Night Elf Druid

    Naxx on farm, OS on farm w/1 dragon down. Malygos downed (I missed it).

    Uldaur on deck.
