Oh, it’s just an activated ability they’re calling welcome home. Is that any different than a standard ability?

She becomes a Human Merfolk with a mind full of VENGEANCE. Make fun of me for being a wallflower, will you!

But so far this set is exactly what I wanted. Also I think the last version of Run Away Together was playable at 4U delve, that effect is more powerful than it looks.
Both effects are unreal if repeatable in limited. Making six power for seven mana is better than most late game topdecks.

Ability is going to be more complicated than that.

The last version of Run Away Together was Peel From Reality and it was roughly a C-

This would probably be less of issue if getting out of gold wasn't harder than getting out of platinum. Gold is an absolute bloodbath every month with a mix of tier one and almost tier one decks, but the sheer amount of diversity means you can get blind-sided by nonsense jank that just happens to hard counter your deck and drop rank or end up facing tier one decks piloted by good players that just don't have the time to grind. Last season it took me a week and a half to get from gold 1 to plat 4, but only three days to get from plat to diamond and that's a 'normal' month.

Has there ever been a set without rare dual lands? That's a bold thing to do.

Maybe they're just trying to get us hyped up for the OG duals getting removed from the reserved list and printed at ultra mythic legendary rare status.

War of the Spark was a set that didn't have rare duals.

We just got a set of duals in M20 (M19 last year didn't have any).

Hi, I'm a big dumb idiot who only realized this game was a thing yesterday and wants to draft dinosaurs and pirates before they rotate because, well, big dumb idiot.
Am I missing something in the UI, or is there only Magic 2020 draft available?
I'm worried that I'm about a year and a half late.

Guilds of Ravnica draft is also available, but Ixalan drafts are long gone. It's for the best, Ixalan was a bad draft format, Rivals with Ixalan was somewhat better but still not very good.

There's more playable formats than just the three panes they show on the main screen. To access them, make sure this thing is toggled to the right



Then click the Play button bottom right and you'll see a full list of all available game modes.

Trying to prep for tomorrow's Standard 2020 event, and Boros Feather seems to have most or it's power in place come rotation. Biggest blows are losing Adanto Vanguard and Reckless Rage.

Trying to figure out how to work around those losses. Here's a pile of card I have right now:



What would best to keep and cut? Swiftblade Vindicator (not shown) has a lot of swing to it if it goes off, and Fencing Ace is a lesser version but possibly usable, but they are also just fragile 1/1's. Sure Strike feels like an okay replacement for Reckless Rage as it can stop Deathtouch damage. Is there any room for Naya with Season of Growth and Giant Growth instead of infuriate? I would appreciate any help with this.

I'd def play Integrity//Intervention instead of Infuriate, and not play any Krenko or Uncaged Fury. Shock, too.

Not sure I like those 1/1 two drops but I think the only other options are Boros Challenger, Tomik (don't play more than 2 though), and... Skyknight Vanguard? Yikes. You could probably safely play an Aurelia or two.

Something like this?

This is probably an impossible question to answer, but:

If my primary colors I play with are green and red, would crafting four Rampaging Ferocidons in anticipation of historic be a good idea? I've been pretty disciplined with not crafting wildcards--especially knowing/figuring/hoping? dual lands are in Eldraine--but I don't want to be staring down the barrel of 8 rares for a potentially staple red creature a few weeks from now.

They've confirmed there's no rare duals in Eldraine.

The wildcard price increase for historic isn't until November so you've got plenty of time to decide.

I like the idea of the event letting you use some of the cards a little early, but I don't like how clunky the deck building interface is while it's in its intermediate form. Can't filter for ELD cards yet there's a Standard 2020 format in the deck builder. At least some of my existing decks from the block constructed event still work.

you can filter for ELD cards by typing e:eld into the search parser

This event makes me feel like a jackass for buying the mastery pass. It's not good enough to play the game every day, you have to grind in this dumbass event to max out the rewards for the thing you bought and it's really made the game feel like a chore. Even if ELD turns out to be really fun there's no way in hell I'm buying another pass. Between that and the stupid historic stuff, I don't know if I can justify paying money for this game every new set to stay current, I might just fall back into the occasional f2p jank player.

You can play the game every three days and finish the mastery pass.

You can also wait to buy the mastery pass on the last day before it expires if you're not sure if you'll finish it on time.

Honest question, how do you plan to solve a wildcard problem with your wallet? You can't buy those.

you can buy a rare wildcard for 1200 gems, and a mythic for 6000 gems, and you get the byproduct of 6/30 boosters worth of cards on top of that, including possibly more wildcards
