"Begone doomed wretch!" is how my first girlfriend broke up with me....

Even for Rick, that's pretty bad.
(No, not really.)

Well, that's what happens when the Tarot reader plays MtG on the side. Sometimes decks get mixed and you get eaten by a White Dragon.

Fortunately, the High Priestess is tournament-legal.

How terribly ominous...

From now on I'm ending every argument I have with "Begone, doomed wretch!"

Then she drew the "Appear in a webcomic" card. At that point it was too freaky to continue.

'Begone, doomed wretch' just became the next slogan written on my office door.

Incidentally, Scott, how about a 'random comic' key? Must be more effective than hoping to click a totally random link in the archives.

Cheers from the ADF for giving us all something to pin up on office boards and inside AS4's during exercises or operations, mate.

I've been reading your work since Scott Adams posted your URL in his blog. I've read every one in your archive and have loved all of it. Thank you for your fantastic work. Keep it up, and I'll remain a reader/customer for life.

Note from Scott: Thanks!

It ALWAYS depends on what you are trying. Oh, the flashbacks and nightmares......

I did a search on the shallow grave card after reading this and while most of the hits were for Yu-Gi-Oh, I did find one that referred to tarot:

It says the card actually means you miss someone.

Ahhhh ... "Begone doomed wretch!" as an alternate to "Back to the void from whence you came!".

August 29, 2011 | Unregistered Commentergobbler

Great comic as usual Scott, but I have to admit it was Hugin's MTG comment that made my chocolate milk spurt out my nose in laughter!

Pure win! A wonderful way to start my return to internet after the hurricane!

What Chuck said.

The version of this in GoComics has "until" spelled "untill". Weird.

August 29, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterStephen

As a side note, I appreciate your good grammar; using "with which" rather than ending in "with" always makes me smile.

I LOVE YOU SCOTT!!

Hari, that's not real Tarot, it's this thing:
http://www.aeclectic.net/tarot/cards/oracle-shadows-light/
There are 22 Majora Arcana, these are the most recognisably "tarot" cards, including Death, The Hanged Man, The Lightning-Struck Tower and other fan favourites. There's also 56 Minor Arcana which are very similar to a standard deck of playing cards, except there's an additional rank of Knight between Jack (or "Knave" as it's called in Tarot) and Queen. Indeed, modern playing cards are descended from Tarot, the Joker being The Fool, the only remaining Majora Arcana. The full deck was not originally for divination but for playing games like a modern deck (in some places these games are still played, I understand they are popular in continental Europe). This Oracle of Shadows and Light, on the other hand, appears to have been made exclusively for divination and has no apparent connection to true Tarot beyond this use.
