>>79001207It would be nice if jotc would print those cards in regular border AND old border, especially if they have the same print run and one isn't more scarce than the other, but of course, jotc needs to squeeze every last penny so I'm honestly surprised they didn't resize cards to yugioh size just to save precious cardboard.We could have the best of both worlds, but of course we won't have any of those.But yeah, I would be ok with cards printed exclusively in old border, especially if the artwork is nice.

>>79001773Whoever decided that brainstorm and looting should be legal in historic is actually incompetent. I'd say they were just unaware, but the argument of "brainstorm is fine in a format without fetches" is the classic statement by someone wanting to appear like they understand the game but they clearly don't.

soon, burn bros...
Haven't checked the thread since it being pronounced dead last friday, is /mmg/ still kill bros?
>>79003915>>79004114Never in a million years. One would kill anything that's not burn while the other is an anti-timmy card.
>all the aether vials and cavern of souls in my deck are chinese knockoffs >nobody notices during weekly modern events in the LGSBased China There's really no reason to fork out $300 for 8 pieces of cards. Fuck the secondary market. They should reprint everything.
>>79004666Unless you want to collect.
>>79004666As a general rule - the more foils your opponent has, the less they will care about you using proxies.
>>79004852No, satan is right fuck the secondary market reprint all cards untill they cost pennies.
>>79004666Trips of truuf. Thank you satan.
>>79005016Nah, I'll keep collecting, thanks.
>>79005454>>79004852Collector and 'investors' are the reason Chinese knockoffs exists and keep getting better. The more you drive up the prices of silly cardboards, the more the Chinese are incentivized to make better knockoffs of expensive cards
>>79005556Don't care, still gonna collect, cry more.
>"mana monkey ban killed ad naus">ad nauseam keeps appearing in leagues and challeneges, including the most recent one on Sunday/mmg/ just being bad at Magic, what did I expect
>>79005604I think "killing" was a strong word but the deck is definitely nowhere near as good as it used to be. I might have to double-check but I'm pretty sure most of the leagues/challenges appearances are from a very dedicated Ad Nauseam player called Selami.The guy just loves the deck more than anything else, and love can make miracles happen.
>>79004114>Play Kroxa, Karakas it with the trigger on the stack? It's so awful I know they'll do it.
I'm looking for that azorius-related card where they arrest somebody just because he was thinking of committing a crime.Does anybody know what was it?
Is it even possible to build some kind of midrange stuff without dumping 1k€ or be left in the dust ?I mostly play at the LGS, i's half casual half serious stuff there, but i'm tired of always playing aggro variations, and getting hit with good sweepers multiple times in a night gave me some ptsd.
>>79006278That describes half the Azorius cards in RtR
>>79006025That's incredibly slow for modern, this ain't Legacy, here value rules.
>>79006319Do you own any manabases? A lot of the cost of those decks is in the manabase.
Have not been paying attention lately, but just noticed some of my ELD picks quadruple up. Notably a playset of Robber of the Rich extended art foils is now unobtainable at any price, there being only 2 left on the internet.
>>79007166It turns out that Eldraine was really broken
>>79007166>Notably a playset of Robber of the Rich extended art foils is now unobtainable at any pricethat's weirdRobber of the Rich doesn't see play anywhere outside of Standard
>>79007201It's a 2/2 for 2 with haste that steals your shit on an attack trigger and only has 1 mythic printing, shit is not bad
>>79007269>shit is not badI know it's not that bad but it still doesn't see play anywhere outside of Standardeven in Pioneer which is supposed to be Standard+ it doesn't see play in Red Aggro which is a fringe archtype these daysthere's no Modern deck that would play a 2 mana 2/2 with haste, it just dies to too many thingsmaybe it's good in EDH? I have no idea
>>79007469Foil extended henge is closing on $300 and it will never see play in any competitive format. We're in clownworld.
>>79007875henge actually sees seasonal play in green stompy variants in pioneerit just fell out of flavor because the current version of stompy (splashing blue) cares more about permission than card advantagemono green and black green love to play henge, specially black green because of pic related
>>79008063>pioneerAs I said. Never in any competitive format.
>>79006278>they arrest somebody just because he was thinking of committing a crimeLook up ddl zan, that shit is becoming a law here in Italy. 1984 was an instruction booklet for some (((people))), jesus christ.

>>79008531It's a power struggle and we're loosing. The dumb identitarians are doing the heavy lifting for the authoritarian elite. The battle starts with popular culture like Magic and the likes.
>>79005585Day of the rat is coming
>>79000803How much awareness of the colors of magic does the typical plane have? Which planes are the most and least knowledgeable about that kind of thing?
>>79008903>>79000803Image didn’t attach, here.
>>79008892Absurdly based and ratto pilled
>>79008843Yadda yadda the usual hate speach crap against trannies. I honestly don't wanna even know the details because it would make me angry.
>>79008874Literally not true, anyone can verify your lie by simply opening the link, why lie like that?And even if it were why would that matter, the cards are still the same.
>>79008892>>79009123>the chinkshill fears the cat owner
So how expensive are the most expensive cards in current sets of which booster packs I can buy from stores?
>>79008531>>79008722>>79009209>your son WILL swallow the ritalin and hrt pills>your daughter WILL become a feminist whore on antidepressants>you WILL eat the bugs>you WILL live in pods>you WILL purchase mtg NFT's>you WILL purchase the secret lair subscription>you WILL refuse to play with someone who uses proxies>you WILL enjoy the heavyset badasses in your artworks>you WILL enjoy the black vikings
>>79009520and lastly you WILL never be a woman
>>79009485>he thinks owning a cat will save him from the day of the ratOhhhhh nononononon
>>79009492Probably foil japanese mystical archives. You have to buy collector boosters of strixhaven.
>>79009612Wait, you get Japanese cards in English packs?
>>79009612What about normal boosters?
>>79009722No.>>79009683Only in the Collector ones. Or in the Set ones but they are much rarer than in the aforementioned packs.
>>79001483Still miles better than the absolute garbage that WoTC makes. Did you not see how fucking gay, lame and boring Kaldheim is? It was Skyrim for pussies. And they follow it up with an even gayer Harry Potter set for fucking faggot retards. Good riddance to originality if all they can make is gay pussified versions of already gay pussified things.
>>79009841How expensive are the most expensive cards I can get from normal boosters?
>>79009898Not at all, standard cards have never been cheaper now that Collector boosters with special cards exist.
>>79008892Hopefully very soon.
>>79003915Reprint as a common, please
>4x slaughter pact maindeck>12x lands totalnow this is what I call commitment, holy shit

>>79010750>Tainted StrikeThis is genius, who gives a shit about infinite life when you have 10+ power with infect?
>>79011266Tainted strike is the one card I always love how much people sleep on.That shit gives +1 and giga-double strike on meth.People played this shit which is unironically "bad tainted strike".
>>79010750This has to be the worst deck I've ever seen 5-0I love it
>>79004137>One would kill anything that's not burn
>>79011420They play it for the trample part, retard, the double strike is a plus.
>>79011981Is that an artistic rendition of a burn player? Pretty accurate, conveys they idea perfectly.
>>79012038>conveys they ideaBurn players are pretty dumb in general, but you somehow manage to be even dumber.
>>79008531>>79008722who the fuck cares about shitaly? you should care about white countries getting subverted not mutt ones which are a dime a dozen
There is exactly 1 retard who is always harping on about wanting PoP in Modern, and it's the same guy who defends Heliod and Prowess. And both are probably animutranny
>We are aware of an incorrect interaction between transforming double-faced cards (such as Azcanta, the Sunken Ruin and Legion's Landing) and cards that care about devotion. Mana symbols in the casting cost from the front side of these cards are incorrectly counted for a player's devotion when the land (back) face of the card is on the battlefield.>To remove the possibility of bug exploitation, the following 11 cards are suspended from Historic use by MPL and Rivals League competitors for this League Weekend event only:The way of the future
>>79012183There are a few whites in Italy though, we should care about them.
>>79012094Burn player seething.

>>79012367>whites in Italyhardly any
>>79012477Because it also gives double strike and is an instant? Why do you even ask me? I didn't make shadow's list.
>>79012367If they're in Italy they don't care about themselves
>>79012367>>79013176Then go to Italy and save their last white women before there aren't any.
>>79012183>>79012556>>79013176>hey bro what about this>ah yeah that's good/bad but let me tell you why italy is bad for the nth timeThere are a bunch of people with a serious inferiority complex towards the best country on earth in this thread, it seems.
>>79009871can't wait for sparkling vampires in gay innistrad
>>79013317Guido please, Italy isn't even the best country in Europe, let alone on the planet.
>>79013278Oh yeah sure the women first, what about us dudes? Don't we deserve some help as well?Always the women, women here, women there, nobody ever thinks of the guys.Thank you so fucking much bro.
>>79009976lying kike>>79009898Right now, the average pack gives peanuts. The high is high, though. A foil Phyrexian Language Vorinclex goes for 180 USD.
>>79009485Cats get their shit handed to them by rats, all the time.
>>79013417Post boipucci first.
My opponent has Ruthless Winnower in play and I have Palace Siege with "Khans" selected.Is there an order to triggered abilities I can pull off to return my sacrificed non-elf creature to my hand?
>>79005604edhtrannies all think they are good at magic because their playgroup is full of other trisomy-21-havers and x-dressers. ywnbaw please seek immediate help.
>>79013448>lying kike>repeats what I said
>>79013565Read the second half, if your nose hasn't gotten in the way.
>>79013626kek for real tho
>>79013382You can only dream of being as good.
>>79013484There's a reason why people domesticated cats and not rats.
>>79013659That's nice but ordinary in Europe, especially around the Alps.
>>79013593Telling people to buy normal packs because they can win the lottery and get a vorinclex is dumb. He also asked where's the most money and vorinclex is nothing compared to the Collector boosters highs.
>>79013705>garda lake, a unicum on earth with its mediterranean climate in the alps, is common in europeStop embarrassing yourself.
>>79013746>a unicum on earth with its mediterranean climate in the alpsLmao it's literally just a lake shat by the Alps.
>>79013838I wouldn't be surprised, slivers are so shit compared to every other tribe in modern
>>79013550No. You, as the active player, must choose a target for Palace Siege when you put the ability on the stack. Then your opponent puts Ruthless Winnower on the stack. Winnower resolves first and you choose to sacrifice something, then you resolve Siege and return the creature you originally targeted to your hand.
>>79013317I agree, there is nothing to discuss.Southern Europeans are half-niggers
Is this supposed to be an elf or a vedalken?
>>79014203It's a na'vi. Look at the ear position and nose shape. The artist just sharpened it slightly. I guran-fucking-tee you there's a completed version of this picture somewhere in a catalog of Avatar fan work.
>>79013838MH2 needs to bring cummies tribal to the forefront so my shitposting 6 months ago can bear fruit.
>>79013812>ignorant and proud
>>79014350I still haven't seen a list of your cancer faggot ass deck.
>>79014396>b-but muh lakeMeanwhile, in a superior country.
>>79014419Because the deck is missing the critical mass needed to break out. While there are SOME playable cumblobs and some decent payoffs, there aren't enough good ones that you're consistently casting threatening creatures the way Humans can. Also coming up with a finished list seems about as tough as many a finished Twiddle list; the deckbuilding process contains so many weird things that it's impossible. Trying to perfect a cummies decklist would be like asking a Jund player how many Pulses, Decays, and Trophies is optimal. Everyone will give you a different answer, and nobody is truly wrong.
>>79014453That doesn't have a mediterranean climate. Are you stupid? That one is a lake like any other in the alps.No point in discussing with someone who refuses to listen because he knows he's no argument.
>>79014516>That doesn't have a mediterranean climateYes? If you want nigger climate you should definitely stay in Italy.
>>79014575pasta nigger btfo
>>79014575>yes?No? This is not a matter of opinions.>The climate of Lucerne is moderately continentalIdiot.

Hey anons, I haven't posted in a few weeks. But I haven't forgotten about you. I'm just swinging by to say that Thalia is hella cute, D&T is one of the best decks in legacy modern and vintage, D&T is a thinking gamer's deck and rewards tight rules knowledge so you should try it for a satisfying experience, the new PVDR vendillion clique card is really good, and a reminder to never leave home without graveyard hate in your sideboard!

Any good recommendations for B/R aristocrats commanders? Currently I'm running a Lyzolda deck that tries to drain my opponents to death with blood artist like triggers, but I'm finding Lyzolda herself is incredibly easy to remove and costs too much mana to draw cards with, along with competing against my other sac outlets.
>>79016391To be fair theyre down to $1 from $3 and TSR is still pretty fresh. Anon should dca down, they can easily go to $5 in a year or so
>>79016472This is my thinking as well. I put in $120 originally and now I could put in another $120 to quadruple my NFTSMD (nonfoil time shifted mulldrifter) stack

vey retarded person hereI've been dipping my toes into Legacy by using the old "just play your banned Modern deck" method and I've been having a good time with Hogaak and Dredge so I have to ask, is it possible to run a Modern-ish version of BG Dark Depths? no Wastelands, no Lotus Petals, no Elvish Spirit Guides and no Mox Diamonds?obviously the deck isn't going to peform nearly as well without the fast mana but I can't help to imagine that discard -> discard -> crop rotation would win me a significantly amount of games, am I being delusional?
>>79018301It'll be hard to get away with both no diamond/wasteland (slow depths) and no ESG/petal (turbodepths).The turbodepths pieces listed here are only like $15 a copy - if you can swing that, it's a solid deck. Without the turn advantage, you're probably just a bit slow, especially on the draw. Just having a petal to be able to pay for daze is immense a lot of the time
>>79017325>blundergod mana leak
>>79018511>if you can swing that, it's a solid deck.fair enough, lotus petals and esg both see play in a lot of other Legacy decks anyways, I don't think I'll regret getting themthank you very much anon
>>79019002No problem - for context, here's an older list of turbodepths that is more similar to what I was talking abouthttps://www.mtggoldfish.com/archetype/turbo-depths#paperNote that a deck like this plays the 4x needle maindeck primarily for wasteland, but you can occasionally get free wins if you see they're on multiples of the same fetch in hand after a t1 discard and you have a fast mana piece. Another way to beat a wasteland on your stage if they're unfamiliar with the matchup is to copy a basic in response, as it gains the basic subtype and fizzles the wasteland.

I guarantee that WoTCs reported sales are entirely false.
>>79021663Reminds me of when EA was in some shaky territory with big shareholders and kept reporting non-GAAP earnings to try and make things look better than they were.
>>79014350You are too slow. Saffron olive already made a video of cum tribal and we haven't even seen a decklist from you.If you think you can do better, do so.
>>79022002This a joke? Are you fresh off the fucking boat? Plenty decklists were posted ages ago, but as I'm not a retard who uses MTGO, nothing got tested. And even then I'm not dumb enough to think that Mark of the Oni is somehow going to be good in Modern when half the deck either zoomzoom under it or don't play creatures. Griffin Rider was fuckin' sweet though.
>>79015358Paypigs are lower than ants
>>79022030>Griffin RiderNice, post list pls
>>79022347I ain't got no list, and if I did it would just be an argument starter. Go find awkward tribal cards that are meant to be unplayable.

>>79023784>>I cannot permit my opponent to cantrip>>Losses 2 cards>That'll show emProbably someone from this general. One of those guys always talking about how blue is overpowered in legacy.
>>79023654i mean, Did it fuck your turn up?I once dropped a sunscour turn too against zoo in early modern days when they dropped a noble into noble + GG. I took 4 damage but turned out they had fuck all mana to play with in hand and had to draw a red source to keep going.
forgot to post this yesterday, Tooth and Nail managed to snag a 5-0I think 2x Trinisphere maindeck are the main reason it did well, Prowess absolutely hates playing against that
>>79025952Hymn is the perfect power level for what Modern is becoming. I hate to tell you this but it's not 2017 anymore. Cards like Electrolyze aren't playable anymore. Modern will continue to receive more and more Legacy inclusions for as long as Modern Horizons sets continue to generate revenue. Modern is rapidly becoming Legacy-lite. WotC has no machinations of preserving Modern as it was at it's peak. Modern Horizons 3 will have Wasteland, I can virtually guarantee it.
>>79026340Modern has been Legacy-shite since Extended died.

>>79027692At this point chink counterfeits have better quality than the real thing. The foils are actually capable of holding their shape longer than a few hours and the stock is thicker and more robust. Sure they have that obvious fake glossy look to them but they double sleeve up fine and half of recent real WotC sets have this fucking weird grainy texture which is even worse
>>79027692Imagine getting fake foils.>>79027763>At this point chink counterfeits have better quality than the real thingHa. No. Maybe in burgerland where they print on toilet paper.

>>79023514Have people who want Hymn in modern actually played against it? Its a terribly designed card and is miserable to play against, can just randomly steal wins if you spike 2 lands against someone who kept a 2-3 land hand.
>>79029395None of the faggots who want x card in Modern have played against it. Either that or it's all a singular faggot trolling like the guy who wants Price of Progress

>>79030471Your local game store but they'll pay a lot less than market price, like half. It's dumb to sell that way, though.Sell on facebook groups or online, tcgplayer/magiccardmarket.
>>79030717Oh shit I live near TCG player, wonder if I can just drive on down and sell them without fucking with the mail.
>>79024711Why haven't any tooth and nail lists run leveler/oracle? Is it just too all in? Has anyone ever actually just hardcast the leveler with one of these lists?
>>79030748tcgplayer is simply a marketplace, they don't sell any cards.
>>79030471ebay usually, if I'm lazy and don't need cash, unironically Card Kingdom. They basically give ebay price in credit.

>>79032353>those haircuts>those facial expressionsWotC really make it obvious who's the audience they want...
>paper is for collecting>digital is for playingis this really the path we're going to go down
>>79030778>Why haven't any tooth and nail lists run leveler/oracle? Is it just too all in?Tooth and Nail is a very niche archtype, I think the last time I saw a list 5-0 was the end of last year. Your idea doesn't sound that bad actually but there hasn't been enough interest in the deck to test that kind of stuff.
How envious do you think Hasbro is about Pokemon? It's pretty crazy how the Pokemon section is always cleared out while MTG is left untouched.
>>79032415The one that gives them the most money?
>>79032415>who's the audience they wantApparently it's me.
>>79032652Very. Creatures Inc. doesn't even need to design cards, almost nobody plays the tcg. You can sort of see them testing the waters with ripping Pokemon off with things like secret lair, showcase cards, etched foils, etc. etc. The game in trading card game is rapidly becoming irrelevant.
>>79032652Pokemon TCG is not a game anymore. Outside Japan it's barely a scalpers meme. I hate this since PTCGO had amazing start and could easily became the hegemon of digital card-gaming.
>>79032652Pokemon is the highest grossing media franchise of all time, in theory everyone should be envious of them.
>>79033486Of certain aspects yes. I doubt anyone's envious of the non-target audience though.
>>79032652Makes me wonder if the current thumbscrewed state Wizards is in has anything to do with Hasbro realising that Wizards dropped the ball on the Pokemon TCG.
>>79033758They could also be trying to recapture the miniature horses audience of disgusting autistic retards, an audience well represented by Pokemon TCG players.
>>79033801Or they, like Blizzard, have realised that 20% of their audience is more than willing to dump their bank account on them, which makes up for losing the other 80% of their customers. Who needs 13 million WoW subscribers when 2 million of them are willing to vomit money at microtransactions?
>>79033758>Hasbro realising that Wizards dropped the ball on the Pokemon TCGIt was decades ago.
>>79033875The two overlap, just look at Chris Chan. Wasting all your disability cheque on worthless trash is just what autistic people do.
>>79034067Which means the most profitable line is to keep as many normal customers while you take advantage of your mentally ill customers.
>>79034111>keep as many normal customersThey certainly aren't doing well on that front.
>>79029330I'm not part of your tribe, Shekelberg.
>>79034133As shown by my previous image, the mentally ill portion of the Magic customer base is MORE than willing to overcompensate for the loss of normal customers. Hasbro doesn't care if you buy singles and play FNM at your LGS. Hasbro wants you to drop $350 on FOMO fetchlands. Hell, they want you to drop $1400 on them for a set, as many did. $5 of cardboard sold at $1400. Fuck are the margins on that even? 99.6% profit or some shit.
>>79034174The people playing at their LGS are most certainly not normal by any means, you'd know this if you ever went to your LGS.
>>79034200I haven't been since March last year, but the place was slowly being taken over by EDH trannies and whales willing to spend their entire payslip on singles and secret lairs.
>>79034200Most mtg players at lgs's are relatively normal, its just that the weirdos stand out.
>>79034200There was a noticeable phenotypic difference between modern and commander players at my lgs.
>>79034174I just preordered a case of MH2 (draft, set and collector), a bundle and a collector box. A whole paycheck. I feel somewhat safe for not having to worry about scarcity now but I feel rather shaken. Is this normal? I just hope my paycheck comes in time next month,bros.
>>79034067>>79034111Mentally ill people are bad consumers in the long run though. The ones they care about are the rich and stable who can buy cardboard at exorbitant prices. Most people don't get it because they can't imagine having so much money you can wipe your ass with it.
>>79034724>the long runLOLHEY FELLOW HASBRO SHAREHOLDERS, GET A LOAD OF THIS FUCKERHE THINKS WE'RE IN IT FOR THE LONG RUN!!!
>>79034724Someone with that much money would likely spend it on cars, boats, real estate, etc. Things with actual value, rather than pieces of cheap, flimsy cardboard.
>>79034761>the long runI always wonder about "the long run." Let's say that in 2025, Hasbro considers the FIRE experiment a success and they double their earnings, like they planned. What happens next?
>>79034761A Hasbro shareholder wants the money to keep coming, you're letting the poorfag mentality interfere with the larping bro.>>79034777>cars, boats>actual valueKek
>>79034777>cars, boats, real estateWe are in a pandemic, anon. How will you enjoy those things with a deadly treath just looming outside your doorstep?
>>79034816>A Hasbro shareholder wants the money to keep comingNope! Aggressive shareholders just want to pump and dump. They don't care about continued income, they just care about increasing the income to fool some other wannabe shareholder into buying his shit that's going to fall off a cliff 3 months from now.
>>79034842>Aggressive shareholdersYou mean the stock market retards who own 0.01% of multiple companies and never actually become rich?
>>79034877No I mean the whales who are actually able to influence the markets and companies they dump their money into.
>>79034891Those aren't whales, they're small fish playing investor.
I just dont get why wotc is milking mtg so hard like the game is gonna die soon. This game is already about as close to legally printing money as anyone can get. Why not take a long term approach?
>>79035180It's not WotC milking the game. It's shareholders pumping and dumping. Always has been.
I had a fun game.
>fetch, usea, thoughtseize you
>>79035415>Woah, stack interaction, this is so much more inherently complex than any turn based strategy game like chess can possibly hope to be
>>79035446Could I get a closer look at that Underground Sea, anon?
>>79035455Imagine going to a GP and making a deep tournament run with nothing but 60 Swamps and a fucking loupe.
>>79035446>exile two mana monke from my hand, manamorphose, veil of summer. your move, kid.
>>79035448I hope you enjoy your games anon.
>>79035483>two mana monke
does anyone here even play magic anymorei haven't touched my cards in over a year
>>79035649I keep playing Arena and hating the game a little more every time I'm done. I've uninstalled and reinstalled it so many times already. The game just isn't fun anymore and I know I just need to quit, but after dumping hundreds of dollars into it, it's hard to just up and leave. The worst part is that I know the game can be fun, but it's too late. I want to switch to Flesh and Blood, cause the fundamentals of the game seem like how I want Magic to be (using cards to make decisions that gain you small advantages that build up over time to win you the game). The problem is that with the pandemic and being an adult it's not only time-consuming to get into a whole new game, but I won't have anyone to play with.
>>79000803Strange question: Has anyone else tried using the Collector boosters for Draft or Sealed with their friends?
>>79035649Same here. I sold down my collection to just a handful of sentimental cards and a couple pauper decks and staples. I was attending small weekly pauper tournaments before lockdown bullshit, but Ive since moved and have noone to play with. Now Im just working on a custom printing of a unified-border Desert Cube. Might build a powered cube and do the same, and add a few more pauper decks so I have a gauntlet, but I dont think Ill ever get back to the point of being a full swing modern/standard player.
>>79035914>draft>sealedGood fucking riddance, WotC is geting rid of these shit formats for good by discontinuing draft boosters. Paying a bit more for set boosters is a fine deal for me. And hey! I might get lucky and hit a good List card.
>>79035914At the very least running a final pack of collector boosters in an otherwise normal draft to ensure everyone gets bombs might be fun with friends
>>79035649Playing Arena a few times a week but mainly to toy with casual decks - don't care about meta since the Dominaria release.The only paper MtG I play now is Cube with my gf and friends. Can't really imagine coming back to paper Constructed anytime soon. Cube is simply superior to any other way of playing Majik. Even if you have no group for Draft you can just run 1vs1 Sealed.
>>79035483why all that convoluted stuff instead of exiling magic elf from hand to play le balanced green cryptic?
>>79036435Because I don't own any magic elves.
>>79035649I jam at least 6~8 games of modern in a week on magic online to scratch the itch but I also miss playing in person quite a lot
Is Lurrus really that much better than Angler in death's shadow?
>>79000803Free Arena Code - Whoever wants itFB4-BKjL-SjN
>>79027692based Ron posterhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T1dDslzLHGM
>>79035649I got to play with friends again last weekend and jam some modern/legacy/pauperit was fun>>79036536yes
>>79036536are you serious? scourge replaces angler and lurrus is pure value. that mix gives the right amount of interaction and creature density where the deck is about 1/3 of each plus it has a companion.
>>79035649>does anyone here even play magic anymoreyesI enjoy playing decks that win against Heliod and lose against everything else, it's very cathartic
>>79037061do you think something will get banned from this deckit's utterly miserable how resilient it is due to veil and auriok champion
>>79035415How'd the Teferi get suspended, retard?
>>79037355>do you think something will get banned from this deckI think it's possible but we'll only know for sure after MH2 hits the format, I don't expect another Hogaak + Astrolabe situation but I'm pretty sure it's gonna have a big impact.
>>79037439Yeah, it was a silly silence prison deck.
>>79029330being a traitor to the jews is being a patriot
>>79037624>I don't expect another Hogaak + Astrolabe situation
>>79038167I know, I knowit's wishful thinking at this point
>>79038381I was trying to figure out what the best ever magic cards in new (as in 8ed+) border are, and I'm pretty sure two of the top 3 (probably #1 and #2, with misstep #3) were both printed after MH1. I think it's safe to say they did not learn their lesson
>>79038498the edh thread is over there buddy
>>79038513My apologies, /mmg/, I was reckless in my posting.
>>79037355heliod needs to go. it enables two 2 card infinite combos and is indestructible.
>>79039662whining again, are you?
>>79039698Fuck off faggot, if dark depths and splinter twin are banned heliod should be as well
>>79039662>it also enables a beatdown plan using creatures like auriok champion and it also has the worst kind of interaction like getting the entire goddamn combo off at instant speed thanks to coco
>>79039702I bet you're going to say Prowess is OP too
>>79039739My point is (and I apologize for the homophobic slur) is that bans should be equal. Remember when Bloodbraid Elf was banned while Eldrazi was running wild?
Apparently this is modern horizons 2
>>79039790wow squirrels this is le epic and heckin awesome haha truly they know what I want that's what I think of when I remember playing magic as a kidsquirrels
>>79039790>art cardWant that for set boosters?
>>79039790The heckin cute squirrel is definitely going to be a commander-bait legend isn't it?
>>79039790wait..is squirrel black panther?
>>79039874is that black panther? goddamnit
>>79039790Draft Booster Box
>>79039790Is this squirrel nest? Can't think of a relevant combo in modern
>tfw started playing dota 2 again>tfw hard to give a shit about magic anymore
I cannot even remember when I was last excited for spoilers
>>79040146FUCK i messed upsomeone else make the new thread
>>79040191delete that shit retard
>>79031172Finally, this kike faggot will soon die! I will unironically celebrate his death with a nice single malt and a cigar.
>>79034819>deadly treath just looming outside your doorstep?You mean the jewish-controlled government?
>>79016391>had just bought stocksStocks are down in the shitter though, almost everything is bleeding cash since a while. And what's worse is we reached ATH in insider selling as well as VIX and UVXY options with july's maturity.Whales are expecting/planning a huge market crash for this summer. Stocks is the worst place to be rn.
>>79035649I only play limited and cube. Might go back to modern when if they clean up the format a bit and start having paper events
>>79040327stocks are consistent. what whales own those options?
>>79039698>criticism equals to "whining"You own Hasbro shares, don't you?Kill yourself.
>>79039790>265 euros for a boxkekHopefully singles will be cheap.
>>79000803Should I get back into MTG? I really am a casual player. I stopped playing 3years ago and have a lot of untouched cards.I'll be playing MTG arena. MTG has some based cards, picrel.
