Eldrain decks are bad, whoever draws removal first wins.

Couldn't be further from the truth. Whoever consistently gets removal wins, not whoever gets their removals off on the trash early game these decks have.

Not sure what deck this can belong to in standard.

This is not the killer equipment Syr Gwyn brawl was looking for.

Turn 1 Scorch Spitter Turn 2 something that's bound to have a two for two mana drop in the new set or two 1 drops, Turn 3 Embercleave

Not that crazy to conceive in RDW or calamity

Allowing people to manually block other users from matching is opening a Pandora's Box.

"Wow can't find a match. Dead game."

Ban formats are the better option. Queue into someone, see three decks, cancel two.

I've been a Day9 fan since the starcraft days but it's hard to watch him when he hits play then gets up to take a dump or something and he leaves his opponent waiting around because the first few timers are brutally generous.

Yeah Day9 strikes me as the type of guy that drives slow in the left hand lane or stands in the middle of sidewalks. I loved watching him in the starcraft days because his positivity matched that games community but him in card games is unbearable.

Insanely detailed article on the cheapest way to get the most cards.

What a good article. I didn't even take into consideration duplicate protection.

So basically do drafts, average at least a win in each draft, save all packs, pop them once the spreadsheet tells you to when it calculates that you have a good enough chance to fill out your collection. When you do it this way you also save on wildcards while building up gems.

Guess drafting is useful afterall.

Teferi is a pretty cool character, flavor and lorewise. If they want to fix Teferi in the next set, make him into the designated "flicker" planeswalker. That fits so well with his story.

Teferis one of my favorite characters in the MTG universe. Cool character arc from the Urza block through the Invasion cycle. His new planeswalker cards don't fit him since he was A) a blue mage that did more than just time stuff and B) wasn't even a planeswalker but was retconned his spark back and turned into a pure time bubble guy.

Telling you all this post-mending stuff ain't no good, ain't no good at all!

Every sealed draft I do always starts the same. 6 rares, all poo poo, all perfectly spread out across 5 colors. It wouldn't hurt so bad if this loving draft type wasn't made to eat gems.

Then running it live and opening multiples of the 8-mana red enchantment of the set.

All the big red enchantments, all the irrationally complicated blue enchantments that always rely on artifacts, and then the one good rare has no good cards behind it in the same color.

Planeswalkers either need to have a big payoff with a long cooldown when placed or a small payoff with a short cooldown when placed. That way the opponent is on a timer just like with a lot of enchantments or lingering threat cards. The problem with these latest planeswalkers is that a bunch of them have big payoffs with short cooldowns which makes them not really tempo punishments at all. I'd have no problem with three cost planeswalkers if they took a while to go off.

It's kind of absurd that 100% of calamity players always have a shock in their hand. I play plenty of decks that completely hinge on 1 of 4 cards being in my opening hand that I never get and somehow these players always jam it out no matter what

played a bunch of games with the doom fortold deck, and it seems really good when you draw more than two lands but also less than 10, which is unfortunately zero percent of the time

Doom Foretold is my favorite card in the set and I've made a ton of decks with it and let me tell you boy does it backfire a lot

So the new random game feedback thing is 100% a psychological ploy to reassure players that they are heard and their feelings matter, right?

Because I can't possibly see how they can be extracting any useful information about what creates good or bad game experiences.

I've gotten it literally every time my opponent's roped me so far I think it just tracks opponent turn timer

So I've run into that Cat in the Oven deck and goddamn is that thing annoying to play against. The engine gets going so fast and once it does you just seem turbo hosed especially once Oko comes out.

Between cat pie and calamity my new deck is just a bunch of aoe and exile and it's working pretty darn good

I really thought this would be a slow meta but every god drat deck is aggro
