Adunaphel.  There's hardly ever a time when tapping an opponent's character isn't a good thing.  While I love most of the Nazgul abilities, I think Adunaphel's is the most easily used.

The starters are 76 card packs of cards, with a fixed pack and 3 rares.  They're good because they give you a lot of cards, plus they give you Wizards in the fixed pack.  In Magic terms, think of the Tournament Packs, not the Theme Decks.

English starters are probably worth their weight in silver as well...or at least worth their $10 original price tag.  So I would say that's not a bad deal at all.

An update was just done on the Mysql server, bringing us up to version 5.0.26, and while this shouldn't cause any problems, please let me know if you see any issues. Thanks!

I would say no.  Here's why:  yes each company has a site phase, but AUB is says "your site phases", talking about that player's site phases.  Each companies site phase occurs within the broader scope of the player's site phase.  So you could only play 1 ally.

Hazard limit was 3.
Riddling talk reduces the hazard limit by 3, bringing it to 0 (3-3).
Daelomin@Home is discarded, adding 2 to the hazard limit, so 3+2-3 = 2.

Was that auction for sealed decks or openned decks?  I didn't realize Balrog prices had gone up so much!

I've always taken it that normally meant the creature could still be played if it wasn't for LDR.  So if it needed three wilderness, and Withered Lands was in play to help make a third wilderness, it could normally be played.  But I could be wrong on that.

This actually happened to Andrew Shalue at Gencon this summer!  He was playing a balrog deck and moved to an underdeeps site, then realized the next turn he had no where to go, since all adjacent sites had been tapped (and there was no surface site).  So he had to try to burn through his d...

I would guess you could get $100 US per set (one red box & one green box) for the openned boxes, and maybe as much as $120 per BOX for the sealed boxes.  That's been the going rate on e-bay lately at least.  (I'm just guessing on the openned stuff...I've not seen any openned balrog boxes o...

I agree with Wacho.  Since you can have multiple copies of Deep Mines in your site deck, it's not a unique site.  So if you find a Deep Mine under Isengard, and Radagast finds one under Rhosgobel, I think those are different Deep Mines you've each stumbled into.
