Last week, Friday Nights went "Time Walking," thanks to Jer's Take Another Turn deck. During that trip through space and time (but mostly time), Jer noted that there were 29 "take an extra turn" cards. But, thanks to the release of Conspiracy (which Jer didn't yet have access to), there are now officially 30 such cards.

Are you a master of time? A Sage of Hours? Is this your Last Chance to test your time knowledge? Do you think you know what it takes to do the Time Warp...again?

Take the quiz below and find out!

  1. White
  2. Black
  3. Red
  4. Green

5. There are 30 cards in Magic that grant the ability or possibility of taking an extra turn, but if you do a Gatherer search for "an extra turn," the list returns 31 cards. What is that 31st card?

6. In Jer's Singleton Take Another Turn Deck, he said he wasn't playing Search the City because it was "dumb," but why would Search the City never let Jer take another turn in that deck anyway?
