I feel like it's going to be pretty jarring to go from the a theme around the ultimate battle between the planeswalkers and nicol bolas to a theme around generating food tokens to pump your fairytale minions.

I'm not saying it's a bad thing. Just quite a contrast.

Well sure, if I didn't use them to draft.

If youíve reached the point where you arenít getting more rewards for XP the mastery pass is a really good deal imho.

Once Upon A Time looks a fun card.

Joust is a replacement for Reckless Rage in Boros Feather.

That's what I thought at first but given that the +2/+1 is conditional on the target being a knight this is nowhere near as good. I'm not sure it fits the bill.

I've been chilling on my gold pile to make sure I can get a bunch of free packs for the drop of the new set. I'm at about 35k right now. Where's everyone else?


Iím at 100k right now which Iím pretty stoked about. Really looking forward to the new set since I got in just before Spark.

You should be fine. You have 15 more days of 500xp = 7500xp

You also have 2 more resets of 15 wins at 250xp each = 7500xp

That's 15k available xp without this event.

Can I bank my xp for next season?

If you play the game every day you shouldn't need to play in this event to get XP.

That is so much worse than Reckless Rage. It costs 2, is only Sorcery speed, and none of the creatures in Feather are Knights so it will usually not deal 4 to the opposing creature. You'd also have to make sure your own creature survives the fight.

Exactly, I don't know why anyone would think Joust is a viable replacement for Reckless Rage in Feather.

5 free levels after people have been grinding out the standard event for two weeks feels a bit tone deaf. I'm sitting at 99.5 levels at the moment so it's no benefit to me.

Otherwise I'm pretty happy with the state of Arena right now.

The Elspeth pack saves you about 10 bux depending on how many gems you feel an Elspeth is worth and if you're paying full price for the foil version.

Master pass = 3400
+10 levels = 2000
1 mythic rare = ?
1 mythic rare premium version = 1200
2 draft tokens = 2000 gems
Premium sleeve = 1200 gems

That gets you 9800 gems which is 200 short of 50usd worth of gems if you get the 100usd bundle. Factor in the mythic rare and you're barely justifying the cost of the pack.

I feel like the +10 levels shouldn't be included because you can easily get that just through consistent play. So to me this pack does not seem worth it.

Huxley posted:

No, only the Bo1 they call "Ranked Draft" counts toward your rank (and also your one-draft-per-month you want to play to get your free pack).

So I've basically got to do 1 eldraine draft to get the free pack. I can't do sealed or traditional draft for Theros. drat.

Rhaegar
Jul 16, 2006


Thanks. I have all Eldraine rares so, no, it's not worth it to play a draft in that format. Hopefully I can catch a Theros draft before the season ends. I don't understand the reasoning for why traditional draft and sealed don't count. They are limited.

Bust Rodd posted:

There is no ďbestĒ way because the ďAlways Be Constantly DraftingĒ packs-at-the-end of the season requires you to A) already be good at drafting and B) means you spend 3/4 of the season without the most current cards.

Some people seem to really enjoy playing that way, but some people hate draft and get more out of just playing to 4/15 wins a day.

Iím doing this for the current season because thereís plenty of constructed decks you can play without Theros. I donít think you could get away with that after Eldraine came out because its power level was so high.

Oh and they confirmed ranked draft for the current set is doing a 2 weeks on/2 weeks off thing now. Preeeettty sure this is to stop people rare drafting the set. The confirmation that true drafts are coming at some point is nice though, and I do like how they are committing to more free events.

Well that's a load of bullshit.

I assume human draft would require you play against other people in your draft pod right? They would never do 8 person human draft but then you just queue into games as normal.

I like the idea of human draft but just donít have the time to draft and then go straight into 3 or more games
