You can spend 20k gold instead.

Being unable to hang out much in person these days, my brother and I have been playing a ton of arena. Was kind of thinking about gifting him the beginnerís bundle for his birthday, but 1) I donít even know if gifting in arena is possible, and 2) maybe the mastery pass is a better value.

I know the mastery passes have been kind of variable in terms of value. Whatís the situation now?

The new pass looks to be decent value.

There's no way to gift things through arena afaik.

Just send him the cash.

Why do that when you can just install a keylogger on his computer and hack into his account to buy it for him?

The teferi bundle actually seems like a decent value if you plan on playing a lot of limited and donít buy gems at a $100 bundle value. Basically 9.9k gems for $50 along with a card sleeve and a teferi mythic.

It's not terrible, it just blows Turn 3 though.

I knwo I shouldn't have left the FNM so late, all the fun decks are done for the day. I can't tell if my decks are awful or just all drawing terribly. at this point im 1-10 and just looking for a pity concede. I managed to lose 3 games with gruul, though I think Bo1 gruul is a different deck that I'm not playing

It's nice to see a preorder that acknowledges the existence of limited but a shame that it does not offer clear value over the cheapest gem rate. Would it really hurt to give an extra draft token?

I guess if you dig into the weeds of the mastery pass there might be value there since there is a draft token at some point along the path, but if there was an obvious discount it would be an easy purchase for me. As it is I will hem and haw until release and probably just get the big pack of gems.

I guess they get my money either way.

despite spaceinvader's effort post, I think I'm confused - are they not doing a pre-order where I just pay a slight discount for a bunch of packs ahead of time? Is the mastery pass the only thing that's pre-order-able this time around?

It's having much less of an impact on all the Lurrus variants I've made than I expected it to.

There's a 50 packs for $49.99 along with a Liliana. It's not a "deal" in that you're getting more packs for less than if you paid with gems. I believe it works out to the same per pack as buying the $100 worth of gems.

The Liliana pre-order is discounted by a bit

I'm a dummy, that's all. Didn't see the huge stack of packs behind Liliana. Got too distracted by that hot Teferi sleeve.

holy poo poo, just lost a brawl game to Purphoros, he had him in play, and in 1 turn, cast Anax, Neheb, and a bunch of other poo poo in 1 turn, hitting for like 24 at once. That can't happen more than once a decade, right?

brawl is apparently too cutthroat for me. Lost to loving Purphoros of all things, lost to a nicol bolas that I killed 5 times, lost to temur guy because I forgot chandra emblems, auto-conceded to niv mizzet, and then an ashiok deck got a thief of sanity on turn 3 after he went first and ate my entire deck.

OMG I hate variance lol. I hit plat 3 then lost a string of games that almost made me lose plat 4 until I finally blew up a mutate deck. This is exhausting sometimes

Shakeups are really fun, I grinded from silver to diamond tonight after not playing ranked the last month. Like two losses? One I mana screwed against a Yorion deck that removed Yorion but not the twenty loving extra cards, the other I lost hard to dimur playing I unno nine hundred removal/counters and also this card I've never seen before that brings back 2 sorc/inst from gy.

Turns out when you aren't up against loving fires deck that can nightmare tempo and board wipe on turn 4 Gruul can do work. New Dino rules hard.




I think the tracker only picked up plat and then the two historic fnm.
