Not by much though. Some of the discounts are basically free, this is only 25% off. Not worth it if you don't usually buy packs.

I hadn't seen a Gyruda deck in several weeks, I'm grinding with the Boros Cycling deck and I see one, it goes off on turn 4 perfectly, they get like 6 triggers of Gyruda, and I bet they're feeling really great about themselves, until I hit them with a Zenith Flare for like 27.

Man that deck really was a flash in the pan wasn't it.

The real issue is that nothing triggers Haste for Gyruda and co. Like who cares if you got 40 power worth of creatures in one turn when a wrath would put a stop to that, let alone a Zenith Flare. It's a trick that works once, is easily predictable, and can be stopped.

That being said, still really fun to just poo poo out a bunch of giant creatures.

This deck is hilarious. Warchief and Heraldic Banner allow you poo poo out an insane amount of hasty power.

I've been screwing around a bit with the Gruul list and it seems good, but I'm not sure if the standard build with BTE and QB isn't just better. I'm pretty bad at piloting non-traditional aggro decks tho so I might be missing some subtlety here.

I still remember when everyone was either calling for Gyruda to be banned or furiously crafting them. Its just like Dance of the Manse, its the first sorta good deck anyone has seen in the new meta so everyone copies it for 2 weeks until the actual meta decks have been figured out.

Well historic is fun so far. Obliterater turns out to be more a little more playable than I thought, using him to fight a freshly cast ulamog with that black/green ikoria draft reanimation spell and leaving a completely blank board is pretty pretty fun

Yeah, I ran Obliterator fight decks from Innistrad to Phyrexia block's rotation and had a lot of fun with them. They would have been all over the place is people weren't already running 3-4 Dismembers no matter what color they ran. I can imagine a them thriving in an environment without Dismember.

This deck absolutely tore through both historic artisan events, thanks. Opponents scoop as soon as Starrix hits the field. I really love making big dumb creatures with mutate, it fills me with so much joy.

then... gremlin or 4/2? if you don't want to cut a creature, the next worst card is probably footfall crater.

So I just had a sweet UR spells/Lutri deck that lost two games in a row because Vadrok is bugged. That is, if you cast Vadrok for its mutate cost in premier draft, it just doesn't trigger. You can select a spell and hit Resolve, and then it doesn't cast. Apparently this is a known issue.
Is there any way to get my draft entry cost refunded? I'm a little bummed out that such a sweet deck ended up 3-3 for such a stupid reason. The first time I assumed I misclicked, so the second time I was super careful and the same thing happened.

unless something changed recently, the only way in client to see how much vault progress you have is if it's over 100%.

i don't care about constructed and i like seeing the number go up. it's at like 750% or so right now.

so no, not really.

When you get too many of a common or uncommon (5 or more), each extra one gives you a fraction of a percent towards 3 uncommon, 2 rare and 1 mythic wildcard.

whenever you get commons or uncommons that you already have 4x of, it slowly increments a counter. when that counter hits 100%, you can click the vault to get some wild cards. more details here: https://magicarena.fandom.com/wiki/Vault
