NorrYtt Heading out to parking lot. I see @mturian driving away. Wonder why he didn't come to work today?
about four hours ago from web
hybrid @maro254 Speaking of which, how did you pull that off? I have to say I was quite surprised when I got the call to come in.
about four hours ago from web
mturian heads home.
about four hours ago from TwitterFon
hybrid You should have heard the griping when they found out I was in Alara Reborn.
about four hours ago from web
maro254 @hybrid You've had a pretty charmed life. It's understandable if some of the other mechanics are jealous.
about four hours ago from TwitterFon
NorrYtt Off to the dry cleaner. I hope they didn't starch the flannels again.

about four hours ago from web

about four hours ago from web
maro254 @hybrid You were when I made you.
about four hours ago from web
hybrid @maro254 I was created during Ravnica, Dad. I was not the focus of the set.
about four hours ago from web

about four hours ago from TwitterFon
maro254 @hybrid I wanted him to be Splice onto Instants but, well, your mom insisted on Splice onto Arcane.
about four hours ago from TwitterFon
hybrid @maro254 Splice is my brother and I love him, but can we say over-parasitic?
about four hours ago from web
maro254 @hybrid What's wrong with Splice?
about four hours ago from TwitterFon

hybrid @NorrYtt The Ravnica godbook study is where I scored higher than traditional multicolor cards, a.k.a. "gold cards." S.C. never did that.
about four hours ago from web
NorrYtt What's in the Ravnica godbook study?
about four hours ago from web
hybrid S.C. just loves the fact that he averaged higher than I did. So I throw the Ravnica godbook study back in his face.
about four hours ago from web
dailymtg (Kelly) Thanks @ninjafghter.
about four hours ago from web
hybrid @NorrYtt Yes. Dissension is the only Magic set with both Split Cards and myself.
about four hours ago from web
NorrYtt @hybrid That's the set you were in together?
about four hours ago from web
hybrid S.C. gets mad and throws the Dissension godbook study in my face.
about four hours ago from web
hybrid I explained that he's lucky to get 10 cards every 5 years or so. I'm capable of supporting block plans. He should just let me pay.
