I see you're big on the commons but not on the rares, Sam. I also don't like the idea of tri-color, but the colored artifacts might be interesting.

Titanic Ultimatum does give trample.

That could explain why the server images are screwing over.
Maybe you just link to the site?

I think that Exalted might be a fun theme to work around (mainly white, red for rogue kavu and co.),
but a pity they made an awesome Sedxaris Specter sad by making it tricolored and crappily illustrated.

I found a few nice tri-colour lands from old sets that aren't too costly. Tri-colour is more viable than it seems...

I've got an Ancient Spring; the mono-color sack for ally color lands can speed up, I suppose, on the pain of slowing down before and after sacking it.

Mycoloth might replace my Verdant Embrace Shocked :

Mycoloth
3GG
Creature - Fungus
Devour 2 (As this comes into play, you may sacrifice any number of creatures. This creature comes into play with twice that many +1/+1 counters on it.)
At the beginning of your upkeep, put a 1/1 green Saproling creature token into play for each +1/+1 counter on Mycoloth.
4/4

And for those who like a common dulled-down version of Tormod's Crypt:

Relic of Progenitus
1
Artifact
{T}: Target player removes a card in his or her graveyard from the game.
1, Remove Relic of Progenitus from the game: Remove all graveyards from the game. Draw a card.

Posts have a ranking in which order they'll appear. Usually, it gets sorted by the date of the last post, but announcements will always be on top, and sticky posts straight underneath them.

I think there's a nicely developing trend appreaing in SOA. If you look at the pics, you can see the different planes coming out eg. Rhox War Monk has a Llorwynish background, while Tower Gargoyle is unmistakeably Mirrodin. A lot of Dominaria (we may see the return of Sporoloth Ancient ) Very Happy , but where are Kamigawa and Ravnica hiding?

You should definitely come to the pre release as they are
heaps of fun. You don't have to bring any cards, but a
casual deck is sometimes a good idea to pass time if you end
up having to wait for other games to finish. No real format
for constructed decks so you can pretty much bring whatever.

This is what I just sent out about the tournament .. i'll
add you to my list to make sure I send you future
announcements about tournaments in Palmy :-)

Feel free to email me any questions.

Hi All

Heroes for Sale will be running a pre release for the new
Magic the Gathering set "Shards of Alara" on the Sat 27th of
September. There will be a morning sealed deck event and an
afternoon '3 pack sealed' event held at the Broadway
Methodist Church hall (see attached map).
Doors will open at 8:45am and we will try to get the morning
event started at 9:15am.
Cost will be $40 for the morning event (you will receive 1
tournament pack and 2 booster packs + prizes)

The afternoon event will start at 2pm (unless the morning
event runs late)
Cost will be $20 for the afternoon event (3 boosters +
prizes)

Cheers,
Michael

So anyway, it's not as expensive as it seems. $40 for the morning, $20 for the afternoon. I'm not sure if I'll go to both, but the afternoon one sounds very affordable...
