My last Quic k Draft loving sucked. Only game I won involved getting 2x Act of Treason in my opening hand and was able to use that to put some heavy damage on my opponent. Other than that I got loving smoked.

The best worst part of this game is counting all your lands for an X spell without mousing over your lands so your opponent doesn't get to know that you're counting all your lands.

I wish there was a "Tap leftovers for X" feature

I'm guessing food will be multi purpose. Like the default is "Sac for life" but like the Goose can convert food into Mana, I bet other cards can do more.

I had a very funny game where I was at 1 health. My opponent was playing Orzhov (Ajanis and that flying vampire that buffs with life gain). He started using 3 Lifemenders to pump his creatures up higher and higher, but didn't attack. I was playing 4 color Elemental and just could not get anything going. Finally I was able to get a Risen Reef, Omnath and Scampering Scorcher out. I then used Neoform on the Spitfire to get out Yarok. Then thats when things really started to get out of hand. I got another Scorcher out which means I had 4 elementals instead of 2. That made Risen Reef proc like 8000 times. I got almost all my lands out, had something like 14 zombies from Field of the Dead (all while still at 1 health). I was then able to use that elemental that heals you for 3, I cast that 3 times and got up to 19 health, then cast a new Omnath and used his EOB effect twice to deal something like 18 points of damage directly to my opponent. Then I cast overrun and swung wide and killed him. I was so happy with that win because my opponent could've won whenever he wanted (his Ajanis was like 12/12, and the flyer was pretty close to 12/13).

I have a couple of Brawl questions:

1) Is Brawl still free to play right now or do you have to pay for it still? (I thought I heard something about it being free right now)
2) What is a good "entry level" Brawl deck? I'm torn between Yarok, Torbran and Nikya.

Torbran is almost to strong. I think it leads to boring games.
Yarok is probably the strongest of the fun to play commanders.

My favourite brawl decks are Judith and Teyesa. They are both in the starter decks (I think) and make for fun combos.

Alright I've decided to go with Yarok! I play Mono Red (as well as Temur / Glint Eye Elementals) so I think I want to try to play something that I like a little more (Glint Eye Elemental where I abuse the gently caress out of Yarok, Omnath and Risen Reef)

EDIT:

Can someone explain Uro to me? The way I read it is, if you cast it from your hand, it pretty much goes right to the graveyard, then next turn (or maybe even the same turn) you can exile 5 cards from your graveyard and pay BBGG to bring it back into play. At that point it acts like a normal creature right? SO like optimally you want to get Uro into the GY first before you even cast it correct?

Casting him normally is great value and worth doing when you don't have to put something onto the board. Thats the best way to get him into the yard unless you are running some sort of self mill Lazav shenanigans, but still 1ug draw a card gain 3 life and put a land into play is very good.

Especially with Yarok holy loving poo poo. I milled myself to death between Risen Reef, Uro, and Guardian Project drawing me a fuckload of cards. I got Loaming Shaman and was like "Oh gently caress here we go!" but then I got Ashioked and only had 4 cards in my library left

I watch Game Knights a lot, and I don't remember who said it, but one of the hosts said "Never concede, because in Commander things can change on a dime."

I made the Torb Red Aggro Brawl deck and I was playing against Arelia. I could not get mana to save my life, but I was able to put a beating on my opponent early, he had 7 life and I still had 25. He used a board wipe, dropped some enchantment that created a bunch of 4/4 Angels, played his commander and a couple other flyers (not all on the same turn, on consecutive turns). They couldn't attack me because I could swing for lethal, but he could just block so I couldn't really do anything either. I figured it was only a matter of time before they were able to take over and win. I was just about to concede when I was like "You know what gently caress it lets see how this plays out!" My next card was the Chandra that lets you do 3 to any non-elemental creature. But I only had 5 mana. I got a mountain, played my Commander and just hoped that he wouldn't get killed (which didn't happen). I played Chandra, wiped the board (except for Torb), next turn I was able to swing for lethal. That is my Brawl story. I'm sorry I can't remember all the card names!

I have a dumb question:

If you have 3 cards that have a "sacrifice a creature". In this case one card gives you +1/+1 counter, one card gives you card draw, and one cards gives you +3 life. If you sacrifice a creature so you pick which effect is triggered or do all 3 trigger?
