I guess there's food in a lot of fairy tales? But the ones I can think of all seem pretty specific in their uses to justify making it a mechanic.

If your opponent kills Alela and aggros early a lot of the time you just end up flailing with a lot of useless artifacts in hand I've found.

Oh Gods it didn't occur to me my opponents can see that.
I don't do it often but I do it sometimes as a nervous/impatient tick.
like flicking your cards in paper.
Should do my best to chill on that then.

I dunno why they show you what your opponent is looking at anyway, doesn't seem to add much either way.

How do you pick one of these 'at random'?

There's too many two for ones in the Storybook cards for RDW to still be that big an issue I think, unless there's an equally value-filled red card.

The Cauldron of Eternity looks really neat. It's a huge geode on a pedestal. It's the same on the "Cauldron Familiar" card from last week.

Also, this enterprising dude was previewed last week and has a page on Mythic Spoiler but wasn't actually added to the spoiler feed:

It's cool as hell that the game is in full release but you still get an infinite waiting screen if you need to reconnect to a game.

Same, but needing to close the game and reopen it if it decides your connection broke in one specific way.

Just scrolled through the Eldraine pass, and at the top after level 110 is just an infinity symbol. Is that for prestige or something? It would be neat to have a payoff for overcapping it I guess.

Is anyone else having horrible disconnects today? I dropped from a Draft game second round and it wouldn't let me past the splash screen even though I could hear audio from the game.

Revenge of Ravens just seems like this format's Ill-Gotten Inheritance, with the added benefit of shutting down some decks even at one copy.

Draw Second Izzet is fun when it works but if your opponent has much interaction at all, or if you just draw the wrong half of your deck you just seem to die.

I wish getting to Gold were just a little bit harder because it seems impossible to climb after that, but it's dead easy until then. No surprise some people prefer Bo1 since at least you can feel like you're making better progress even if you really aren't.

Could certainly cut the artifact knights, and you probably don't need three Outflanks. Giant's Skewer seems unnecessary with no payoff for food.

A hand of the copy Adventure artifact and three of the Unicorn is absolutely absurd in draft. Nothing he could do about it that you could consistently have.

Blue seems way, way too open in Eldraine draft for how much it can nullify your plays.

We walk similar paths but I believe in even more thorough elimination of Fun, personally.



Pick rates of So Tinies and Secretkeepers definitely need to be tightened up a bit.

I think they printed Veil of Summer because they also printed poo poo like Thought Erasure and Mass Manipulation (among many others) and knew people would want a way of getting around those.

What message would banning Veil even say, that cards like Thought Erasure shouldn't have cards that respond to them? Yeah the fact it guards Oko is pretty lovely, but it's more a symptom of recent card design in general than a problem.

LSVs limited reviews aren't that great because they're day 0 opinions. He's just guessing at what's good, but he can be way off, for example:


Top 5 Red Commons
5. Bloodhaze Wolverine.
4. Thrill of Possibility
3. Raging Redcap
2. Merchant of the Vale
1. Scorching Dragonfire

He really thought a 2/1 that's only for a pretty specific deck (and could probably be cut in it even) was in top five picks?
