>You have very strange team ups in there, you've got the Wanderer and Davriel Cane, two sort of complete opposites working together. You've got Ob Nixilis working with Karn and Dack Fayden. I mean, this book is about strange bedfellows all over the place on both sides of the conflict, just really unlikely alliances taking place, forced into play sometimes, coerced into play sometimes. It's definitely a series of, I think, pretty fascinating complexities and dynamics between characters.
what if planeswalkers are creatures in war of the spark
>>247116126>He says while actively consuming said cultureWhat did he mean by this?
>Mythic Championship 1 won by Autumn Burchett (Mono Blue Tempo, United Kingdom, They)
>>247116994Yeah, but he's gonna undo that at a strategic time for maximum Bolas betrayal
>>247117106As if WAR doesn't already sound over-designed enough.
>>247117070'Dack Fayden' will never fail to make me laugh
>>247117070If Dack Fayden is in the novel, even though he isn't one of the Planeswalkers in the set, then that might mean Garruk is too!
>>247117070Who is "the Wanderer" exactly?
>>247117575This is my guess
>>247117482He sounds like he belongs in Star Wars
That twitch interview also confirmed we'll Set spoilers at Twitch at the end of this month, although in hindsight that was pretty obvious.

>>247117783>Bant mill>WR tokens
>>247118423Tranny's deck really isn't good outside of meta. Dies to a lot of timmy jank decks pretty bad.
Is 13 land aggro real or not?

>>247118852>tfw no Urzette gf
>talking arena with normie friend>I just love dropping a Kaya's brap to stabilize in my midrange deck>what's a brap?
>>247118485Well, I just lost to it 2-0 now with the same deck, so I was likely just lucky.Still, it's weird to me that I don't see that many tranny blue decks in Ranked but I just played 2 in a row in Unranked. Feels like it should be the opposite.
>>247118480Why bant? And what do you do about nexus?
No one expects the demanding dragon for 10 damage swing
>>247119597He did ablaze my board but I just hasted out my regisaur for lethal the next turn
Why do i keep facing meta netdecks bros while using a complete shitshow jank with less than 50% winrate? Where is this deck strenght matchmaking in unranked people keep talking about?
>>247120069Doesn't exist anymore. It now uses the number of games played to ensure complete newfags only face other newfags. Other than that, there are no restrictions.
How triggered do you think he was? Also Sailor of means is a severely under-rated card. Decent block against aggro and helps you ramp up
>meet my newest friend
>>247120375more like sailor of memes amirite
>>247120482You mean sailor of dreams because he enables so much dumb shit sometimes
>>247120480Having frens sure is great
>have honor guard in play>opponent plays a chupa trying to kill my big haymaker creature>you can just feel the confusion emanating from him
>>247120375Poor monored. I'm gonna cry now.>>247120784Did you at least spam "oops"?
>FNM today>there are no trannies at my FNMFeels so good
Why aren't there any high res images for non English cards on scryfall (or anywhere else)?
>>247120784Enjoying that one game where the guard does anything?
>>247121036It blocks elephant in monowhite and tokens, trickster in monoblue, whirlies and pyros in RDW, siege gangs in big red, harpooners in monogreen and gruul, mystics in reclamation faggotry, and pretty much everything in green-something midrange decks.Based and honored.
>>247121036Eh, it's a decent blocker at worst. 1/3 for 2 is fine and it stops ajani welcome, Viashinos and Chain gobs, Chupas, Hostage takers and the entire explore mechanic, so I'd say it does something more often than not.
>>247121036It does things in a lot of games. a 1/3 is pretty decent blocker and ETB effects are common as fuck in a lot of decks. It hoses or eats a removal from sultai (both outcomes are what I want). It blocks fairly well against Mono-red and shuts off Viashino pyromancer, Shuts off Loxodon and blocks fairly well against white weenies. It does the least against mono-u but they often forget about it and try to drop in their trickster for ebin plays against me, only to find out it now does fucking nothing.
>>247121648Dies to doomblade.
>>247120784>1/3 torpor orbmight actually be the most survivable of all 3 cards with that effect
>>247120842Are there trannies in anyone's FNM? It's not like they are any common.>>247121648>gaysBlaze them.
>>247122016>Are there trannies in anyone's FNM?Trannies are like 0.02% of the population. I'm sure they exist but it's such a small number it's not even worth thinking about.There are gays at my FNM.
>>247122151>gaysOnly play gates against them and blaze em.
>>247122229No, play monored burn and throw shocks in their faces.>>247122151Absolutely degenerate. That feel when 100% straight LGS.
Too many niggers in this game, worse than YGO.
hard counter cards are garbage designit's 2019, when are the designers going to stop being retards?
>>247122532Probably never. Incompetence is a brand trait now
>in the past 10 matches, i keep drawing the same bunch of cards x2~3 in my first few turns, and NEVER EVER some cardsWhat is going on?
>>247122532It's only going to get worse
>>247122612Arena shuffler works in mysterious ways, like when you scry away a card and it stacks another copy below it
>Face a cool deck>Opponent has to ruin it by being a retard and spamming "good game" and roping when they get the combo off.
>>247122738Its probably the first time it works after 10 games and he’s tilted as fuck.
>>247122687Scrybug has been properly ported from mtgo, all works as intended.
>>247117675Also "Dacks" is Australian slang for pants/trousers.And to "dack" someone is to pants them
>>247122738>play a quiet game>use emotes sparingly or never>if opponent holds out till the end they get a "good game"Simple
>>247122687There is no way this is a coincidence. I keep seeing the same bunch of cards over and over and over in my first hand/turns, and never some of others, despite having like 12 of them. I have 4 skewer the critics and i haven't drawn once in 10 matches
>>247122738>>247122912>mute everyone>enjoy playing the game and not paying attention to the chump at the other side of the field
>>247122997>pull off a good play>opponent says 'nice'>mfw
>>247122971I'll explain this later, phone dying>hurr phoneyposter
>you will never polish his bladeWhy even live?
>every single one of my wincons are in the last 10 cards of my deckholy fucking shit
>>247123832>allyThat's a pass from me, I'm not into beta cucks.
This monoU deck is the most boring thing to play against.
Would you a Glorifier of Dusk?
Whet deck do your gfs play?
>>247123832>white maleumm, sweetie, that's enough...post a PoC male next time, mmkay?
>>247125312>you will never sniff his staffWhy even live?
Why do people do this?
They should put in a button that appears if your opponent hasn't made a move in 10 seconds that, when pushed, cuts their timer in half.
>>247125865lmao I've literally never gotten this reward and I've played for monthslmao @ you
Should I replace all my Skymarchers with these to better deal with Chainwhirler?
>>247126581maybe sideboard it but vs anything other than RDW the skymarcher is preferable
>>247126661speaking of RDW why do so few people play this? I only see 0-1 copies in the RDW lists online.
>>247116978but you face when he gets reprinted in the next coreset.
>>247126980I think it's one of those ones that doesn't quite make the cut vs the other cards in the popular RDW netdeck.It's a sweet card though, at the moment I'm running a rakdos aggro deck with spectacle triggers everywhere and it's loads of fun.
>>247127275>HURR FUCK RED PLAYERS>PLAY THIS TO COUNTER RED!I wouldn't be surprised, they seem retarded enough to keep doing designs like this
>>247122532They're called hosers and they are necessary. Also this card is fairly narrow so stop whining.
>>247128118shut the fuck up Maro
>>247126581>does literally half the damage per swinghmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
>>247123881Having a few mates who have your back is now beta.>>247125312Oh fuck, it's the diversity inquisition!I-is a cat fine too?
>>247128412but it can also swing in earlier if the opponent has blockers and it can also block the mono blue flyers
>>247128118Imo it leads to rock paper scissors like gameplay. >play overpowered card>if opponent doesn't have an answer to it he loses>if opponent does you lose
>>247128749yep, good game design is built on trades and soft counters, so you can maximize back-and-forth play and therefore interaction
>>247122971Okay, listen up, unranked BO1, has this system that your starting hand is decidede from 2 other starting hands and the most aggro cards are kept. No idea what happens to the rest tho, probably go on the bottom since you never draw them.
>>247117783Temur ramp.I just like slamming BIG Krasises and 10+ damage Banefires.
>>247129029No, the algorithm just tries to give you the hand with the best land-to-nonland ratio. It doesn't care what the nonland cards are.
does this keep happening to anybody else?>decide to play mono red after losing to it a lot>this keeps happening to me all the time>1-3 hp away from winning but then opponent stabilzes and I lose
>>247129029I thought the shuffler only affected lands and no creatures
>>247129240lol gitgud scrubster
Playing anything but control decks really puts me into despair. Anything you play just gets countered. Any creature gets instantly removed.
>>247129240rng in mtg is just as prevalent as hearthstone, don't buy into the meme that it's notsource: I play both games heavily, side to side
I thought monoU was a strong deck or whatever
Why do the game designers hate us so much?
>>247130453A deck isn't strong just because it uses blue cards, that pile of jank you dabbed on is not "mono u tempo", which is the strong mono u deck.
>>247130112Yeah but HS rng can be 10 times more frustrating when for example Priest gets a random spell from Lyra and wins the game or Hunter uses his DK to make a random Zombeast that wins the game.Rng that brings shit from outside the match is honestly a lot worse than getting mana screwed or flooded.
>>247130710>Rng that brings shit from outside the matchsodoes mtga have momir basic yet?
>>247130624>"that wasn't real socialism"The seethe
>>247130808You are a true moron.
Best Pauper deck right now?
>>247130582>how do we make using counterspells even more braindead and easy?>I know!
>>247131208ah yes, the archetypal green control deck
does anyone actually enjoy pauper
>>247131316Bant has been a staple control deck many times.
>>247131316you're literally retarded my guy
>m-maybe if I dye my hair pink the SJWs will accept me back?!
>>247131107Do your dailiesNOT
>just want to do dailies>forget huge winning streak yesterday>get completely fucked (mana screwed, mana flooded, starting hand jibbed, matched with perfect counters etc) over today to balance the 50%Nice gaem
>>247131639more like jeff boobland lmao
>>247130940>ad hominemKeep seething, don't stop
>>247131639Why would you think this looks good?
>>247126980its good with risk factor, bad with frenzy
WAKE ME UP INSIDE
>>247132258Shimmer is the obvious choice here.
Is RNA ranked draft still the "force high alert memes" format?
>>247131316This is the thought process that goes in the designers head when they do these cards>EH, this is kinda weak on green since they barely have instants! I'm sure it will be fine and all the 3~4 color decks won't splash it
Rate this deck I just drafted guys!
>>247132004It's not an ad hom, it's a factual observation. Stay retarded.
>>247132683Holy fuck, SEETHE>trannie on suicide hotline
>>247132829le epig trole frend
>>247132829>t. literal retard
>>247124393Not even a serious question - absolutely, she real fine
>settle some scrubster >he plays around settle the rest of the game >I only have one settle
>keep getting almost 1 rare icr per day>they all suckinb4 entitled
>>247133958You should only run one, because people play round it after the first.
How good do you need to be to climb out of gold? How bad am I that I cant do it?
whelp, time to make that one deck that gives you boosts for attacking with 1 creature which cards give trample?
what the fuck hard counters MonoU?
>cast ixalan's binding on hydroid gaysis>thot erasure opponent's hand>3x krasis in there>the rope appears
>>247135190Shhh, not so loud, they're gonna ban you just for joking about trannies.
>>247135168There's an artifact that does so, Glaive of something or other. Also don't forget Angelic Exaltation.
>>247135190nothingwith a good enough hand they can counter everything
>>247135190Anything with lots of low-cost removal. RDW walks all over it, so do decks running 1 mana black removal spells like that one that makes a Saproling, or that one that gives you life.
>>247135485That Glaive gives Menace. Not Trample. A bunch of green crap gives you Trample. Like merely having a Goreclaw on the field, or Talons of Wildwood which is just Rancor but shitty
>>247135168Does Grunn pair well with Nikya?
>4 wins before you get a rareyeah nah
>White Weenies>Azorious Aggro>Tempo Blue>RDW>Sultai MidrangeWhich of these 5 decks is the best in the current meta, in your opinion?
>>247135958In bo1, RDW. In bo3, Tranny Tempo
>>247125538Being control faggots? Dunno, You tell us
>>247117783Orzhov Meat Wagons - lots of etb, Lumbering Battlements, and Justicar's Portals.Hit the infinite loop dream once with 3 battlements rotating, bouncing a chupacabra and a bellhaunt. Surprisingly effective in plat levels.
lelPutting some jank in top-tier deck to get matched against jank is some fun stuff.
Is draft a waste of money?>crap rare that I already have 4 copies of>no duplicate protection
>>247137416wow you bested a precon
>>247137518it's only really worth it to build a collection when the set releasesthen the diminishing returns hit... hard
>>247137518Also what do I pick here? Everything seems meh for a first pick. Goblin and Mystic are nice I guess but dual color. Otherwise the Hybrid?
>>247137518>Is draft a waste of money?Absolutely unless you know you can make a big run every time.
>>247137586Precons don't run 4 Resplendiscent Angels and 4 History of Benalia
>>247137616I'd go goblin every time.
>>247137709wow you beat a shit deck
>>247137592This. RNA was worth drafting when it came out, by now you should have crafted the rares you need.
Advice? The cards I got were all over the place and I couldn't really decide until the last pack what guild I should go with. I guess I have no win con? Only hoping that my opponent bricks and I can autoaggro them?
>>247137518>drafting RNAUnironically worst than Ixalan
>>247140432Why do you say that?
>>247120221Wrong. In unranked it's still applied.
g-guysi think i broke the meta making a small adjustment to the 13 lands deck lol
>>247140432Patrician taste anon. RNA is fucking trash.
>>247125940You probably don't get a lot of rewards, then
DAE find draft too stressful? :( All these potential cards you have to play around. I think I will stick to buying packs.
>>247141368Yeah... I took almost two weeks to finish an Ixalan draft and I had a great deck.
>>247132580It never was. Git gud.
>>247141368Draft is shit because people are even slower than usual.
>>247135190Tranny here, my worst match up is easily Izzet Drakes and/or PhoenixesDon't listen to this guy >>247135551He's full of shit. I eat RDW for breakfast.
>tfw you actually need 1 mythic card to finish a deck nowI wish I wasn't so wasteful with them. Spent them all on Angels
>>247132580only if you also see phat booty going around
>>247132650>Pteramander>Basically no insants4/10>>247135025What deck are you using?
>>247140432>>247141219>Having taste this shitThe only set that is better than RNA to draft in Arena is Dominaria. Fuck outta here, draftlets.>>247141368The intensity is what makes it fun and true Magic, in my opinion.
>>247132650>Boar over Sage's Row Savant>Axebane Beast over Mammoth Spider in Flyers: The Flyening1-3
>>247141994I absolutely love drafting Dominaria, kickers are so great in Draft.
>>247141824Never saw this art in full rez before. She looked like a geisha to me from the thumbnail. Cool art.
>>247141881>What deck are you using?I keep jumping between decks. RDW, Mono-U, Sultai, Esper Midrange, Drakes
Drafting for gold is great but no sideboard sucks ass>>247142239Fully decked out with all the shocklands and everything?
>>247141994I find to be a bigger coinflip than normal gameplay. Because not only you are dependant on the cards you might luck out or not to draft, you can still get mana screwed, flooded etcBo3 draft would be MUCH MORE BETTER in this regard if wasn't for the pay fucking wall, which i assume is why wizard jewed it.
Let me give this company some advice, drop the diversity agenda and it will lift off the ground.>game of literal whomst>plays SJWHow cute and yet very very dumb, take notes from superior cardgames.
Draft is so tense I can't take it.

>>247153623there's 4 walls in the whole decktrump jokes are as played out as bieber jokes back when he had his 15 minutes.it just comes off as obsession at this point
>>247153623That makes no sense, while blitzkrieg literally means "lighting war" so that anon made a clever joke with his burn deck.
>>247153151I don't get sword point diplomacy honestly. You should always just give them the cards particularly if their burn spells. Say they draw a lightning strike with it, would you rather them pay 2 mana to burn for three or none?
FUCK GATESIf WAR doesn't have some nonbasic hate I'll be giga mad
>>247153904The point of that card is that they either give you useless shit that you don't want to draw when you actually need it, thus effectively filtering your deck, or they burn themselves to stop you from hitting them with a burn spell that you would have burned them with anyway, and if it's Risk Factor, you can just jumpstart it with a useless card they gave you to flash it back from the grave anyway. It's just all upside.
>>247152671>opponent goes first>lands 1/1 healing bird>i drop mana>he hit me>i drop mana, i can't drop anything else or else i cant respond to their birds being buffed>they land another bird and hit me>i may or may not drop mana, and if i try to drop any monster, i won't have mana to use any of my 2 removal>they keep hitting meDo you see where i'm going with this?

>draft noob learns that discarding from an empty deck does nothing proc'ed ill gotten before the draw and won
>>247153904>Say they draw a lightning strike with it, would you rather them pay 2 mana to burn for three or none?Getting burned for free is often preferable. It's not really a binary situation - unlike risk factor where you either paying 4 or potentially eating up to 9, you are trading far more evenly with diplomacy and can weight your options. Not giving the bolt often lets you keep the board. It's not pleasant but you cant win the race if your jadelight just died buying red more turns to fry you. Giving opponent a bolt could also disrupt your wildgrowth turn which they might not be able to do otherwise. Or it just lets the opponent get into your face with his creatures and leads to more damage over a couple of turns since they get to go wide over you. This is actually why it's not as widely run as risk factor - it's far easier for a receiving player to work around known factors than unknown.

Hi, can you guys rate my draft ? I began Magic 2 months ago
>>247160537No thanks, she might be ok with it, but she'll know this isn't a normal hobby. If nothing changes me and my buds will be forced to quit, we're not teens anymore. The target demographic is just too fringe.
>>247160950>Scrabbling clawsHahahhahahahahahahaha why
>>247160923>every critique must just be /pol/>believes the game is perfectGreat, you shared your opinion, but sadly my question was directed at people that don't blindly follow trends. Nothing personnel
>>247159543>>247159665>>247159802can we do it bros?
>>247160950Arrester's Zeal is not great when you already have so much flying. I'd only keep them if you put in 1 or 2 more of those Skitter Eels you have.Wall of Lost Thoughts is very bad in this meta because it does nothing to Flyer's and the big aggressive decks don't care about it.16 lands is too greedy for your average CMC and Azorius in general. I'd go up to 18, personally.
>>247160950You don't have enough instants or sorceries to make your Dovin's Acuity really pop, seems like you're just in the threshold for PteramanderArrester's Zeal works best in an aggressive deck, meanwhile, Senate Courier and Thought Collapse work best in a controlling deck, so you seem to be having a bit of a mixed gameplanFaerie Duelist is great, remember that you don't necessarily want to get it out immediately on Turn 2. Waiting a turn or two to eat another creature out of nowhere is a better move most of the time.Overall, the power level of your deck seems a bit below the average, but it's hardly unplayable garbage. You can swarm with a lot of fliers and control the board that way. And Azorius Skyguard is a beast. Have fun.
>>247161413report how it turns out
>>247161160That's his "sideboard", silly. (Bo1 so you don't actually have a sideboard anyways)>>247161378Only /pol/tards obsess over trannies
THE MEMES, JACKAlso imagine roping a treasure deck because your immortal sun got duressed (only have 1 duress in my deck, wew)
>>247161413I appreciate Rakdos + Midnight Reaper + Rekindling Phoenix. That's some good jank.
>>247160875>>247161378Let the market decide what to do if you hate it so much. Close these threads and don't support them. They're still going to release WAR and they're going to stay profitable. They're a business, they don't just DO things: they do things to maximize profit.
>>247161413you will get 1 flip but it hits an indestructible adanto
>>247161436>>247161438Thank you guys for your advices. Appreciate it.Also if I add lands, do I have to remove other cards or can I be at more than 40 ?
>>247162138correct. you should always be at 40 for drafts.
>>247162138You should basically never have more than 40 cards. Pick your 40 best. So yeah, remove some non-land cards. I'd suggest Wall and Shimmer. Also, now that I looked at your deck better, I've realized you actually have enough instants to make your Pteramander pop, but again, it's gonna be hard for you to figure out when you should leave mana up for a counter.

>>247161871>promoting trannies maximizes profit>promoting diversity among a majority white male playerbase maximizes profit>making ugly cards maximizes profitDoubt.jpgI havent spent a single dime on the game in years, however it is my right to express concern for a game I have played for 16 years, you are not able to take that away from me. I am not alone in this, let people share their honest opinion
>>247162638Magic keeps getting more and more successful, so clearly, the diversity is either:a) Helping salesb) Not harming sales in any impactful mannerSorry, sweetie, but you lost :)
This deck is more fun than it has any right to be - ended up winning via Angrath ult since I used all my banefires and explosions to take out creatures. Anyone know a good card to use in conjuction with Electrodominance? I usually use it to bring cast Precognitive Preception or Ral/Angrath.
>"vaultProgress": 90.0So how many uncommons/commons away am I for 100%?
>>247162335Yeah I kept the Ptera, removed Wall and Shimmer, add 1 Eel and kept 1 Arrester zeal.I also removed the Dovin because I feel its not that worth it. Thanks again m8.
>>247163068>more and more successfulDoubt.jpgThe game has been out since 1993, that's 26 years and in this time it has not managed to break into the casual demographic. The largest influx you have gotten in recent time was due to a faux-right wing youtuber playing it.None of the reasons you stated were the cause of this influx.
>>24716333990 commons or 30 uncommons
>>247163510Are you serious? Damn.
>>247163417It's time.Hit him with the good shit.
>>247162537>>247163417Did he not swing for some retarded reason? He had you forced into trading almost everything and leaving you on 4 life at best
>>247163068You didn't address his point. Ugly card art and intersectional politics don't maximize profits when the core base either don't care about it or dislike it, which is what you claimed by saying they do things to maximize profits (they don't as evidence of major multi-million dollar companies doing things that immensely harm their profits for the sake of political ideology and pandering to non-core users of their product at the expense of core users).Most MTG users simply do not care and as long as WotC keeps doing what they're doing they will never care because it isn't affecting the core gameplay or the general user experience. Until WotC crosses that line they can do whatever they want and the impact on sells will be negligible because of the convenience of MTGA to the general MTG playerbase.
first full run, silver is really bad
>>247163921This post is basically 100% correct which is why it's so satisfying to see /pol/tards impotently crying about trannies and niggers while WotC rightfully ignores them.
>>247163650we actually fucking did it brospraise rakdos>>247163760nah, all the damage I took was from Midnight Reaper procs
>>247163921People will play mtg no matter what, and with arena out it will get bigger than ever. So they can afford to push their ideology without impacting sales. It's the same case as with every other too big to fail company, as you have correctly pointed out yourself. The only thing you can do is make your own card game with blackjack and hookers.
bros thief of sanity is so funcurrent loot: 2 sinister sabotage, 2 nivs, 1 captive audience, 1 syncopate, and a hostage taker
>>247164274Congratulations on your win against the mentally handicapped
>>247164112The issue is that the trend shows that companies who embrace intersectionality tend to snowball down a hill and get held hostage by the very same people they try to pander to - the reason why I doubt it'll ever matter in the case of WotC is that I do not think that MTG will ever enter the cultural lime-light meaning it'll never become as popular as they'd like which is their saving grace and I like to think that Hasbro has a strong enough hold on WotC that on the off-chance they do hit mainstream popularity they'll be put in their place for the sake of profits.
>>247164803Based and logicpilled.I hope the same thing.
>>247164640>Congratulations on your win against the mentally handicappedso 99% of the playerbase?i don't care if he was retarded or not it was fun as shit
>Pauper>Play only commons>Receive only Rares and Uncommons as rewardThis has to be a strategy to try and "force" people into buying cards.averaging between 3-4 wins I could basicly play this for all day but gaining no commons while doing this means I'm kinda stuck playing the one and only decent pauper deck I've got.
>>247164997Drafting gives you all commons ever
>>247165165Except the ones you will never pick
>>247165189No, trust me. It gives you ALL the commons. I have all 4 of all fucking Guild Lockets and I never play them.
>>247164997Don't play pauper - it's a terrible format that's dominated by aggro. It's one of the worst fucking modes out there next to cascade. Singleton is so much better
>>247164997Why the fuck is anyone playing pauper? It was a chore to play when it was free and it is even a bigger chore to play when you paid gold for it.
>>247164803Saving this for future debate. You worded it beautifully.
>>247165189You'll have to pick them all at some point.As well as uncommons.
What tracker are you guys using, Im scared of this one.
>>247165165>>247165328I really hate drafting though since I've never really liked drafting in magic and it's such a massive currency sink.Compared to Hearthstones Arena (their equivalent of drafting in case you've not played hearthstone) the reward tier's allowed you to play multiple runs each day even if you average only 3 wins per run.in MTG Arena its all a fucking clusterfuck of Draft's accessible only with gems and cash Draft being accessible with only amount of gold worth of 4 days of dailies.

I was the Market poster and I went to go eat. you're seeing boogymen where there are none. let's phrase it like this: if cards really were getting substantially uglier, do you think market demand would INCREASE or DECREASE or stay neutral? let's pose the same for "intersectionality" (or, what you really mean, Black People on my cards): if it were an issue that was widespread, like you seem to insist it is, why do they keep doing it? you'd think the market would rebuke them once or twice if it was as bad as you insist, and they would learn from it because they're a BUSINESS and stop doing it. but they don't. because only you and people like you have a problem with these practices: and you obviously don't represent a position popular enough to meaningfully affect the profitability of printing cards. pic related: HORRIBLE DISGUSTING HIDEOUS land art

>>247168342We're 28-30. We have lives now, can't play a fringe fool all your life.
>>247169341I think cards like these tend to be more of the so called "safety valves"They're cards that hose a mechanic of a set in case that mechanic ends up being overpowered. Most of the time, though, the mechanic isn't overpowered, thus it's not widely used, thus the hoser cards are barely ever even considered for sideboard.
Oh hey, I'm really enjoying this program.>tfw still grinding CE but only once each day now
>>247169829Thanks, I'm not sure I got all that but it was an interesting read.And damn, they should have used that alt art for her card instead. That looks so much better.
>>247167501I mean golgari is hot garbage, the undergrowth meme is ALMOST playable, but it's one of those cases of "only playable because people don't play it enough" If it had been a bit more pushed it would've paradoxically been far worse because of cheap artifacts like Sentinel totem and silent gravestone would have just been put into the sideboards of every deck to hose it.
>>247170329>I mean golgari is hot garbagewhat did she mean by this
>>247169279There's Melira. But infect is not a meta deck as of now, so no one has anti-infect in the sideboard. Your hope is to just Fatally Push their shitters and pray there's no Blossoming Defenses or Spell Pierces or Apostle's Blessings.>>247169617Lavinia actually does hate on modern meta decks. Tron particularly, but some other unfair stuff like cascade, delve, affinity, miracles, or just ramping into non creature spells. And in legacy and particularly vintage that's a crazy card, with all the two mana lands, and free counterspells and discard, and zero mana artifacts that make mana, and a ton of other busted shit.
>>247170438There are like two playable "golgari" cards right now, as in, the cards printed in GRN or even RNA with the golgari symbol attached to the cards. Not talking about the explore package + black for removal deck.

Sick of farming pauper, so I'm sharing the best pauper deck out there for my /mtga/ brosShits all over both rats & millrats. Yes, it has 79 cards so you have a much greater win% against the millrats.Only poor matchup is hexproof enchantments.

I know they ree about videogames in general but it feels like they're especially bad about MTG. Then again maybe it's just one or two autistic anons shitting the place up.
>>247174629Yeah, I think I might've been grossly over-landing. I ended up doing 135 rats 115 land and even though you get a massive benefit if you reach 4 lands smoothly, manaflooding really fucks you up. Did 3 runs and went 2-2, 4-2, and 3-2 I believe. Unsurprisingly most decks I faced were built to fight rats and usually did a decent job of it.

>>247175223'cause the 3d models are just stuff they whipped up to make Arena flashier. I'm generally inclined to say that they should stick to animations associated with the card rather than 3d models of the character. Seraph of the Scales animation, Dream Eater, 4 mana kidnap pirate, etc. The one 3d model animation I do kinda like is Niv Mizzle because they still manage to make him look insufferably smug.>>247175574>Esper player getting a Jace in both hands, his ass, and mouthServes him right.>>247176076Oh, good catch.

>>247179380No kidding. Even when you're running 4x growth spiral, 4x circuitous route, 4x guild summit, and 3x shimmer of possibility. Even if you don't hit an ideal curve for it they're all tools to help you dig through your deck and get land/colors. Then you hit multiple games in a row where you don't draw any of them/no land. Or the last game I played where I eventually got to 4 land against my white weenie opponent who had 6 and I only had 1 gate in play which couldn't stop his 0 mana elephant's buffing.>>247179929'cause it was a shitty Rakdos pile. I think I got him under 10 before he went over 30.
>>247177532my best guess is still that they're doing it to pseudo-prevent that the clean high-res is being used to print unofficial playmats in nice quality. Then again they might really think it looks fancy that way. Or they just hate potential titty-edits and want to make their high-res material as unappealing as possible.

Thanks for not conceding my dude, was the first time i've ever been able to attack with that many.
Can someone please spoonfeed me how to build a deck with a good curve? I am tired and have a headache and don't feel like trying to understand some spreadsheet with numbers.I want to make a three color midrange deck and have no idea what amount of 1,2,3,4,5,6 mana cards I should play and what cards I can hope to play when. Like obviously when I have only 4 checklands and 4 shocklands with blue playing a blue 1 mana creature on turn 1 wont happen often. So how do I know when I can hope to play my cards on curve?
>>247201449>not censoring ixalan's bindingYOUR ACCOUNT IS MINE
>>247201503monogreen stompy is probably the perfect example. depending on the variation you're running an 8/8 or 4/12 split for the 1 and 2 CMC, 12 3CMC, 4 CMC for the ferox and then a mix of 5 tyrant/ghalta/vivien for the curve toppers that aren't always critical to get out on curve.
I just realized that theoretically mono red has access to counters.

>>247201880Mono green also has part of Disallow
>>247201880Copying a counter to counter a counter is not the same thing as countering.
Why is this bullshit allowed
>>247202276bro it's not very strong just take your time and sideboard against it :^)
>>247202575nothing wrong with unlimited land untapping + infinite turns.
>>247202695as long as you can shortcut it to an endstate, yeah
>>247202276just play bo3 lol xd?
What does Sword-Point Diplomacy look like on the receiving end? I had an opponent pay six life to exile two lands and give me a creature. I don't know if that was intended since I had plenty of lands in play already.
>>247203175it gives you instructions per card reading is a difficult skill to master
>>247203175I had a guy do that, say "nice" and shame-concede immediately, but that's his fault for not reading the card.The one I always feel bad about is Smothering Tithe, half the time if they want to pay and tap their lands the mana stays floating there instead of going towards the ability and then something happens and they get two less mana for that turn and I still get a treasure. I don't know if it's bugged or what, I've even had someone give up four mana and still give me a treasure once.
>>247202695And don't forget the land allowing you to dig 4 cards for the non creature/non land card you need that you can use 2 times per turn.
Maybe do your dailies?
my opponent used back to back gates blaze in drafthow much skill does he have ?
>>247203586For "Pay X" cards, if you tap your lands while the trigger is still on the stack, the mana just goes into a floating pool. If you Resolve the trigger, then you can tap lands and it will automatically pay for the cost. There are two steps to it which is a bit confusing, resolving the trigger does not mean you refuse to pay.You can still pay with the floating mana if you tap in advance, but you have to click the tiny mana icons on top of your portrait.
>>247203923What's weird to me is that it only happens with the Tithe when I also have Baird, Forbidding Spirit and Amulet of Safekeeping on my deck.
What Planeswalker should I put in my meme pirate deck? Vraska Relic Seeker seems thematic, but it's too slow and I'm not gonna put green in.Jace the Castawy seems fun, and he is handsome to boot!
>>247204206Minotaur dad and it's not even close
>>247204138I think the game will always give priority to you on your Beginning Phase when Smothering Tithe triggers, so you have to resolve it manually. If they don't have any instants when attacking/targetting you, the other abilities might resolve automatically.It works the same way with counter spells, if your opponent casts Quench, you have to actually let it resolve before you can pay for the cost.>>247204206Angrath if you're in those colors, he's pretty cool.
Alright, you can do your dailies now.actually my 4th copytoo bad GB is for fags

>>247207482Why not? I always come here to whine about my bad daily rewards.
>>247207604Because that's no fun
>>247207668But complaining can be fun.
I don't get it how bad am I that I can't make it out of gold rank?
>go first>thought erasure their thought erasureBest feeling
>>247207838What decks are you playing?
We will build a wall and we will make gruug pay for it.
Arena should allow you to edit the art of cards, I'm not spending money for this uggo shiz.
Some of the art in this game is really bad, you should be allowed to change it.
>>247208130Azorius Weenie, Esper Midrange, Mono-Red, Mono-Blue, Sultai
>>247208307Sounds like you're just bad, unless you're playing bo3 decks in best of one.
>>247208435Yeah but how good do you need to be to get out of gold? Like how bad can I be lol
>>247208592You just literally need a positive winrate, you don't have to have a tier 1 deck for that. I have been ranking up with a rakdos priest deck in bo1 this month. Watch some streamers or read a guide on how to play the deck you've chosen and then dedicate yourself to learning it.
>>247208356>thinks this is good artYou might want to spend less on Arena and buy yourself a new pair of eyes.
>>247208772Angry black woman looks angry. Seems like a good art.
>>247208772Samut is a qt
>>247208937Looks like a black man in a wig, bad art.
This card was so hyped. What happened?
>>247208772I think it's cringe that you care about this at all.The art is horrible and forces an agenda but so is the game an community, it's time to move on and leave while you still have some humanity left in you.
>>247208937Are you threatened by her masculinity?
>>247209037>minguezOy vey those fence jumpers gotta live somehow, might as well hire an alien since they don't pay tax!
>>247209185>"you should be ok with everything"I think it's yikes you're just ok with it. Only downhill from here, stay vigilant
>>247209331>hurrNo I said you should be so disgusted at this point you should have abandoned ship first chance you got.You fucking retard.
>>247209037Too high curve for aggro and the 3 slot is already cloggeda 4/4 flyer for 4 is playable in midrange but its no seraph of the scales
So how exactly does this thing hurt you? Does it zap you with electricity or something?
I heard the śoyboy smile is actually not a smile but a cry for help. With MTG players, I can really see it.>>247209492Nothing because those fucking retards can't make games for shit.
>>247209460>but its no seraph of the scalesIs it any good?
>>247209492Fuck all, it's a shit design that it all you it can do is ram into you.
>change land art in my antireddish Selesnya deck>accidentally double the number of Plains>deck runs smoothly for two games>notice extra plains, remove them>BTFO in two gamesMakes you think.
>>247209492It jabs you really hard with the metal poker on the front of it. Just like you can be killed in real life if someone pokes you really hard 20 times in a row.
>>247209439>"you should just throw away something you care about"Bet you'd like that My retort is as follows>you should just stop defending bad art and let people that care speakHow about that?
>>247209665I am not defending the art, I said it's shit and I stand by that, in fact I probably hate it more than you do. The point is you SHOULDN'T care about this game as most games out there are better than this in nearly every way. So yes you should throw this garbage away and stop caring about it as it is a piece of shit.
>>247209818Okay, introduce me to a better game
What's the best Esper Midrange list so far?
>>247209907How are you still able to function after cringing this much, all the time? Maybe this thread is not for you, you seem like you're not having a good time desu.
>>247209918I'd be hard to name worse games.Victoria 2 for starters, play with niggermod
>>247209918Hearts of Iron 3 though you might need more braincells to play it>>247210057the moment this thread becomes /kspg/ I am happy
>>247209953I swear to FUCKING GOD they PROMIES they will NEVER make a planeswalker THIS SHIT AGAIN but they FUCKING DID IT HOLY FUCKTHEY ARE DONE, FUCKING DONETHIS IS SHITIMAGINE GETTING THIS
>>247210139Maybe you should leave if you don't like it. I'll be here for the next hour. Doubt anyone wants to cringe for an hour straight>in their free time>for fun
>It's a "Surveil your entire deck with doom whisperer in a single turn to find the card that guarantees lethal next turn" episode
>>247210245Dovin is cool, calm down.
>>247210245Dovin is actually an example of a good planeswalker. Enough with +1 draw a card -3 remove a card -8 win the game
>>247210245I got a Dovin. If I had infinite cards I'd actually play him in an artifact deck. I don't have infinite cards though so I don't have Karns and sheit.
>>247210330Good on you for having 40 life, I guess.
How do I sideboard against Midrange with RDW? Do I sideboard in removal or should I stay on the going face plan?
I like how it's impossible to beat a good RDW hand
>>247210502It was actually just 3 activations, but you have to exaggerate for dramatic effect in television you see. I just felt happy that my Dimirjank beat Izzet drakes. Which I shouldn't 'cause it's one of the few decks where I have a semi-favorable matchup, but I takes what I can gets.
>>247207302>>247207302>>247207302>>247207302Okay will this break the chain of bad rewards?Will I get the Angrath I so need? Maybe an Arcades for a wall jank deck? Maybe a Chromium so I can make a horrible Esper Control deck? A Jace for the Mono-Blue sideboard? A Liliana for Zombie jank?
>>247210417I have Karns and Dovins and one Tez.Regrettably, artifacts are unplayable jank.
>>247210780APEX of Servants
>play against some Transmogrifying Wand jank>want to see how his deck works>he scoops
>>247211246He didn't give you want you wanted, sounds like you got outplayed.
>>247210780Angrath would be nice, I'll vote for Angrath.
>>247210742There, very next game I surveiled myself from 20 to 6 to dig out a contempt for my opponent's Bolas. Dimirjank VS Grixis not-really-jank and Not Important takes another match. Thought I was fucked since I mulled and was still stuck with a 1 land hand but my opponent flooded so I ended up with the marginally more desirable form of RNG fuckery.
>>247210780>>247210878>>247211354At least it's from the newest pack I guess so I get some duplicate protection benefits.
>>247211556You shouldn't sigh, Ravager Wurm's a really good card. Not really as exciting or buildaroundable as a planeswalker but he gets shit done.
>>247211628But it's useless for me because I got barely any Gruul cards.
>1 attack away from winning>opponent topdecks removal>i flood outHow do my opponents keep doing that?
>>247211660I run one in a gates deck and he's good in there too. Eating an enemy critter or a flipped Azcanta or whatever is useful. And in the event you do get more Gruul cards he's an easy addition, though he may be sideboard fodder if you're going for more aggro.Might not be a good card you wanted and might not be a fun jank card you wanted but he's definitely far from trash which is better than most ICRs.
Oh no, he blew up my lands, what will I ever do now. It's not like my dino can smash his face or anything like that.
>>247211846Well I got one already also so this is my 2nd.
Should you just give up on playing any deck without blue? There is nothing you can do against all the removal and board wipes and counters. All you can do is play your cards and pray.
>>247212112Um, blue doesn't have removal and board wipes sweetie :)
>>247212214>>247212112>Not playing gates so you can play literally any card you want
I'm so fucking close to stopping playing.>control>control>control>gates>T2 Steel Leaf>T4 loss against Mono-Red>control>Weenie with the perfect curve>control
>african american angels>mfw
>>247212112You can *not* play all your cards until you assess the situation and can safely do so. If you're against a creatureless deck it's not like you need more than one or two creatures to keep the damage going.
>>247212430>African-AmericanYou mean Jamuraan-Aeronan?>>247212402Play bo1.
>>247212573That reminds me, can't wait to see those Somali-vikings in the upcoming set, if they add in some extra middle easterners it's really gonna be a blast.
How do you not lose your patience with all the slow players? I am starting to concede in games just because I am tired of waiting several seconds between every action.
>>247213010I just shitpost on 4channel while waiting for priority. Or on my priority if I feel like roping them back, many people learn to behave after a couple of turns of that.
>>247213148The problem is that these slow players take several seconds for _EVERY_ action. It's not like I can shitpost or watch tv in peace while they play their turn no I have to click "resolve" and "next" every 5 seconds. It's like I'm playing on dial-up.
What is the personality type of people playing this deck?
>>247213363what is this card
*negates your 19 mana spell for 1 mana*
>>247211894Just googled Orazca Relic. It seems like a really bad card.
>checking out yugioh after playing Magic is quite the shock my eyes almost hurt looking at the bright anime art
>>247213895what went wrong
>>247213010I instantly scoop. Slow players are only in unranked anyway.>>247213895Dinos!
>>247213895Yu-Gi-Oh is such a fucking mess. How can people play that game?
>>247214065>Slow players are only in unranked anyway.Are we playing the same game?
>>247214183I've never seen them in ranked. Sometimes someone tilts and rage quits, so you have to wait a bit, but that's it.
>>247210567just try to remove their board and hope for a frenzy
>>247211894Based jank deck
>>247213010I'm just playing to relax, I don't need to rush things if my opponent doesn't want to. If I want a more exciting experience I just play fighting games (which I usually do before winding down with MTGA)
>>247214635>>247214635>>247214635>>247214635>>247214635next stop draft
>>247214602He also had Kaya and artifacts that exile the graveyard. I guess the idea is to blow up the lands and exile them.I'd like to play that actually, but I don't have the fall of thrannies.
>Friendly reminder, people spend money on this "game"Kek
whats the story with these dipshit mono U with lands+petitioners (the irony of this...) in the pauper event. easiest wins of my life when i make some counter decks to fuck with them
