It's also way, way, way easier to cash out of a MTGO collection than a physical one, and the buy/sell spread is minuscule compared to paper.
At least, that's how I rationalize my MTGO problem.
here's a working link to the article:
Starting with this set, all planeswalkers past, present, and future will have the supertype legendary. They will also be subject to the "legend rule." The "planeswalker uniqueness rule" is going away. What does this mean? In short, everything that's true about legendary creatures will now be true about legendary planeswalkers.
So you could have a Jace, The Mind Sculptor, and a Jace, Telepath Unbound in play at the same time. This seems legitimately Vintage-changing to me.
I'm not sure that you can afford to run 2 Delve spells without 4x Preordain and/or Dack Fayden. You just won't fill your graveyard fast enough.
I think you should slot in at least one Snapcaster Mage, too, because it's just too good with Flash after your first one gets countered.
In my recent games with this deck, I've often felt as if I've had good cards in hand, but been unable to cast them. It hasn't been immediately clear if this was just bad luck, or bad mulligan decisions, or 3 DRS not being quite enough. Anyway I'm now trying a build with 4 DRS.
I rarely post, but I'm sufficiently dismayed by this thread, and all the other recent threads like it, that I felt unable to resist.
We have a simple request from Matt and Ryan that folks please not post gripes, snide remarks, anger, insults, etc. in their metagame report threads. This isn't unreasonable. It's probably very disheartening to do all the work they do, share it with the community, and have the overall response be one of vitriol -- regardless of where that vitriol is directed.
Let's be very clear. They aren't saying "don't post it anywhere", they're saying "please don't post this in direct response to my blood, sweat, and tears". I don't think that's much of an imposition, and it seems to me that honoring that request is the reasonable, empathetic thing to do.
I'd also like to put out a general call for empathy in this forum. It's especially important when discussing B&R and the metagame, because Magic players often personally identify with their favorite strategies, and when discussing B&R it's easy to feel like the stakes are high.
I think we'd all be a lot better off if we could collectively make an effort to be kinder to each other. Assume good faith and intelligence of others. Don't say things in a post that you wouldn't say to someone's face. Seek to find common ground instead of setting out to make caricatures of how you perceive the 'opposition'. Be patient with the metagame and with each other. And don't make posts that aren't how you'd like to be remembered as a human being.
I doubt I'm alone in thinking that we have a severe degree of polarization, of entrenched viewpoints, and of the invective that comes with that. It's tiring! And it can easily become a downwards spiral that drives good contributions out of the community.
Be well, folks.
Just a catalog of tournament results. ... mtgoldfish cycles them out of the database.
Partially true, if you click on a user's name, it still has a record of all their decklists that were ever live on the site.
Also, if you search for a particular card in decks, you can set a date range going backwards in time arbitrarily far. For instance: http://bit.ly/2qBw1R1
Looks like WotC has posted MTGO decklists for the last two days, but the Challenges are nowhere to be found
Anyone know anything about this?
Some reflections on the list:
My experiences today:
R1: Dan9IN on Car Shops (W 2-1)
R2: IdraftTheBeatz on UR Harsh Wasteland Delver (W 2-1)
R3: ReneRandrup on Jeskai control? (L 1-2)
R4: tattocek on Jeskai Dack YP Delver (L 0-2)
R5: TonyMontana on Jeskai Mentor (W 2-1)
Had one particularly fun moment here game 2: t1 play Key, t2 Mana Drain their Stony Silence, t3 upkeep Vamp for Vault, Force their Force.
R6: Lovecoil on Dredge (W 2-1)
Lovecoil was exceptionally unlucky; they mulliganned to 1 games 1 and 3, and basically didn't do anything either of those games :/
Looks like your connection to The Mana Drain was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
