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.

untapped.gg has a deck tracker app you can use to see what's still in your deck

It also has a thing that says how many lands you have on the board so you don't have to count em up

This drove me up the wall in HS but it's worse in MTG, when your salty opponent ragequits out of the game and leaves you to sit there for three minutes until all the ropes have roped

Zendikar is crazy mana plane with the Roil (of whom Omnath is the Locus) which constantly reshapes the land. So it's dangerous and untamed and also where the Eldrazi were imprisoned for a while by Ugin, Sorin and Nahiri. They got out though.

Do not allow Wizards to try and divert attention or change the issue with ELD previews, Brawl events, or any of the other distracting tactics they will use. Historic MUST remain the primary issue on the community table. 2:1 wildcard conversion remains an indefensible cash grab that jeopardizes long term Arena health and Historic viability. Other Historic changes are also cash grabs masked as positive changes for players. Do not let them change the narrative and make Wizards know this is unacceptable to the community. Make sure Historic problems are at the top of this subreddit and do not spend $$ on products until Wizards fixes this.

Unbelievable the lengths they'll go to, doing previews and spoilers and such.

One's a lot more affordable than the other if you've been grinding out cards for the last year, since you don't have to buy (make) that many new cards.

At first blush, it seems to me that standard is also gonna generate way more revenue than historic.

So if ya don't know yet, now when you make a deck from scratch it lets you choose "constructed," "trad. constructed" and "singleton". Aside from amking me wonder if that's a hint that they are adding permanent singleton format, what's it for.

Brawl is a singleton format and (I think) is being added with Eldraine.


Spiderdrake posted:

The most recent update says "hopefully in the october update" so it probably doesn't launch this month

I knew that but a Brawl deck is going to be different from a singleton deck right?

I'm kind of surprised they're adding in a permanent singleton format since a singleton deck can be way cheaper than a standard deck and lends itself to the "just toss in any old single good cards you opened by chance" situation a lot of Arena people are in. I know Brawl isn't EDH, but there are people that only play Commander in paper right? So, offering a cheaper and, for many, more popular format permanently into the game seems bad for revenue.

In the days of early beta, when we first learned that we would be forbidden from turning our cards into Dust to craft new cards with, we were afraid. But Wizards assured us that keeping cards forever was an important part of the game. We would want Collections, they Promised. We asked, what about rotation? They didn't have an answer. Instead, they wiped their slate clean and declared it was time for Open Beta, buying themselves a year to think.

And now that year is over and we finally have their answer to the question of rotation: Historic. Yes, we said. A place to play with our entire Collections. The Collections you said we must have. So how will it work?

It will be more expensive, they said. To discourage you from playing it over Standard, they said. But what about our Collections, we cried? Where shall we use them if no one can afford Historic?

And Wizards was silent, because they knew they were breaking their Promise. Hoping we would not remember that they Promised our cards would hold Value and we would not want to turn them to Dust. Hoping we would not realize that this means that the New Cards they are offering us are ultimately worthless as well. Hoping we would not notice that Arena as a whole is worth nothing without the Promise of a need for Collections. Hoping that the new format will die a quiet death in its cradle, smothered by the weight of its costs, and with no one to mourn it.

Wizards, stop this. You cannot teach us the meaning of Value in your game and then fool us into believing that our cards will hold Value with nowhere to play them.

If you won't give us Dust, give us a Living Format. One that people can play not just today, but that can attract new followers in two years or five years or twenty. One with sustainable costs and a thriving playerbase.
