>>81280433You could just get vaccinated, rather than keep listening to conspiracy theories.
>>81280581>compromise on my morals to play a children's card gameyou could just dilate and kys
>>81280444>Sylvan caryatid - too many 4+ color strategies that can't be punishedremoving Sylvan Caryatid isn't the way you punish 4+ color strategies in Pioneer, it's true that ramp and fixing on a hexproof dork is very helpful but the backbone of 4+ color decks is their manabase: the combination of triomes, shocks and checklands is extremely efficient at providing the colors they need as fast as possiblewe need more cards that punish running too many non-basics like pic related, preferably in red/white straight up Blood Moon would probably be too much for the format but a white/red Back to Basics-esque card would be amazing
>>81280789Are there archon tribal decks?
>>81280581I'm vaccinated, but I'm not going to show people my papers to enter a store (or worse, have to install wizards' app to sign up for an event).>>81280789Hitting caryatid makes it a lot easier to slow them down a turn (similar to what archon does), and that's mainly what I'm looking to do. They should exist, but they should have to pay a more reasonable penalty for their greed.
>>81280900You already got the vaccine, why are you still resisting? I don't understand. WTF are you retarded just show the papers. Show the papers FREAK. You're crazy. What the hell is wrong with you? You're listening to conspiracy theories! Take your meds back to pol schizo!KNOW YOUR PLACEEAT THE BUGSAAAAAAAAAAAA
>>81280799I don't think so, there are like 20 archons total in the entire game>>81280900>They should exist, but they should have to pay a more reasonable penalty for their greed.I understand that, I'm telling you that just removing Caryatid isn't the right way to do with because you're not going to hurt them enough to warrant a change while simultaneously doing collateral lesser popular decks that depend on Caryatid like Soulflayer or Midrange-y Delirium decks.Again, it's true that Caryatid is a good card that helps enable 4+ color strategies but the reason they are strong is that even in games where they don't play/draw Caryatid, they still have a rock solid manabase they can depend on with very little way of their opponents to interact with it.It's like trying to treat the symptoms of a disease rather than the cause, you have to keep in mind that they could just print a new version of Caryatid at some point in the next couple of years of Standard sets.
>>81281116I still disagree with you here - you're saying that decks should be running hate cards to cripple the deck, where I'm saying that they should be slightly weaker in every matchup (I think their speed without caryatid is about what it should be).I think in general, the punish to greedpiles is killing them and hitting their dorks as opposed to wasting their manabase (I love wasteland a huge amount, but pioneer is not the format for it) - caryatid is good at stopping both. I also dislike paradise druid for similar reasons, but at least that dies when it blocks.
>>81280900>I'm vaccinated, but I'm not going to show people my papers to enter a store It’s really not that different than a being carded at a bar.>(or worse, have to install wizards' app to sign up for an event).Completely understandable, I do not blame you at all.
>>81281277I'm old enough I don't get carded often, and having to show an ID while going to a bar is different from having to show an ID and card going into literally every place.When going from country to country, I understand. Having this on a daily basis is the beginning of an actual hellish existence, and this is where a lot of vaccinated people draw the line.
>>81281253>I still disagree with you herethat's fine, this is a good conversation nonetheless>you're saying that decks should be running hate cards to cripple the deckI'm saying that decks should have more accessible and efficient options to punish 4+ color piles in the format as whole, I did not mean to imply that they should all be maindeckable like Archon of Emeria is in some decksI'm not a card designer so the best thing I could come up with is a literal Back to Basics in different form (maybe a 2/2 creature, again I'm not good at this), it's close to useless against Mono Black/Mono Green, you'd be insane to maindeck such a card, but it would deeply make 4+ color piles think twice before bringing their decks into a open field.>caryatid is good at stopping both. I also dislike paradise druid for similar reasons, but at least that dies when it blocks.but let me ask you this, what happens if they print another Caryatid or Paradise Druid? do we just ban it again?you have to be willing to accept that the probability of them printing a "any color" mana dork that's somewhat resilient to removal isn't low, Paradise Druid was from 2019 If I'm correctwhat about decks that use Caryatid farily? do we give them a replacement?not trying to sound inquisitive here, these are real considerations you should think about before banning something like a mana dork from a format, it's different from banning a combo piece like Spy/Informer or Felidar Guardian/Inverter
>>81281345>Having this on a daily basis is the beginning of an actual hellish existenceShut the FUCK UP about hellish existences, you have no idea what real hells are like.
>>81281453I'm actually not arguing for any ban here, I think that pioneer is relatively ok. The question was what card would I ban were I to ban a card.wrt what if they print another hexproof mana dork? I think wizards is going to be hesitant specifically with that kind of card, because it's now a heavily disliked thing especially among arena players (their main demographic).Decks that use caryatid fairly have other mana dorks without hexproof, which are much mroe fair cards. This does certainly weaken soulflayer, but soulflayer is explicitly not doing fair things.
>>81281277>>81281549>show the papers, eat the bugs, REEELike fucking clockwork.
>>81281740>muh bugsvictory by forfeit

>>81281740Go live in China for 1 (ONE) day and come crawling back, begging for the first world again.
>>81281549and you don't either so stop posting anytime.
>>81281577>I'm actually not arguing for any ban here, I think that pioneer is relatively ok. The question was what card would I ban were I to ban a card.That's true, I got a little to caught up in the argument. I personally wouldn't ban anything in Pioneer right now, I'd actually like to unban some cards but that's a different conversation.>I think wizards is going to be hesitant specifically with that kind of card, because it's now a heavily disliked thing especially among arena players (their main demographic)That's also a fair point but I don't believe it's definitive, the design space of making good 2 cmc mana dorks is pretty limited, they either protect themselves in some way, add more than one color/mana or are synergistic with a specific mechanic from their set. I genuinely think that we'll get something similar to Caryatid or Paradise Druid in Standard much sooner than later.>This does certainly weaken soulflayer, but soulflayer is explicitly not doing fair things.Even if we are to call Soulflayer unfair, I'd argue that it is the type of archtype you want to maintain in the format because of its distinctive features, it's a graveyard deck who's payoff relies on making a super strong creature that gets beaten by edict effects or exile based board wipes. It's the type of deck that makes people consider both graveyard hate and unorthodox ways of dealing with big creatures, as opposed to generic good removal.Basically, if Soulflayer happens to be too good you can count on people having access to the cards that can completely fuck the deck up, they just gotta put them in their sideboard, which circles back to my argument about more having more options to deal with specifically 4+ color decks but that I believe we're over thas discussion at this point.
>>81281801You have no idea how fashy your mindset is, do you? Jesus.
>>81281801You mean the China that restricts individual freedom on a scale that Orwell would have a hard time comprehending? The only way to get somewhere in the distance is to take steps toward it. Do you really want the first world to restrict freedoms unnecessarily?
>>81281277I really hope you lose your papers or somebody destroys them to make your life more difficult.
>>81281918>I really hope you lose your papersI keep mine in my wallet, and think everybody else does or keeps them in a safe>or somebody destroys them to make your life more difficult.That seems incredibly petty to do over some bullshit conspiracies you believe, but I'd probably answer by pulling out my 1911

>>81281879>having a vaccination confirmation requirement for a massively-publicized global disease on some piece of paper ao you can go fuck off with the rest of your life>versus literally getting disappeared for suggesting the wrong thing onlineYep, drivers' licenses are tyranny and a way to control the people from doing as they please. Now stop bitching about special saline and get back to arguing about more important things like black geniuses in children's card games.
>>81280900>have to install wizards' app to sign up for an eventThis is the true reason paper Magic is dead. Nobody wants to install spyware from a company that shat the bed and exiled their best artist based on Chinese whispers.
>>81281769It's like the most popular it's ever been. I'm fucking mad, JotC CANNOT win this one, fuck them and fuck MH for rotating Modern every two years. I'm fucking livid.
>>81282096you post like someone who should have his gun taken away, I suggest you be empathetic and stop imply that people are as conspiratorial as you, take your meds please.
>>81282289It's been a month, but last time I played modern we still had a screen you could use if you didn't want to use the app. I was one of a few to not use it, but it was nice and I assume they would leave that as an option as to not turn away newer players and children.
>>81282311If some retard who's so deep into some bullshit conspiracies that he's going blind from shitting himself so much after eating horse paste tears up something of mine that I need in order to go to work now, I'm going to be very pissed. I think most people would be.

>>81282352I don't know how to explain to you that you should care about people.
>>81281549I'm old enough to remember Yugoslavia. He's right that the worst shit people have done in recent history starts this way.
>>81281277I think the difference is that if you want to make people give up some personal bit of information, you have to clearly justify why that should be done. We are okay giving up birthdate and some identifying information on a license because much of it is visible, e.g. I can see about how tall you are and how much you weigh, plus there are documented significant adverse effects of alcohol. The tradeoff of showing an ID to get into a bar is minor because the information given is relatively minor and the protection to prevent children from drinking is worthwhile because alcohol is dangerous no matter who you are (but we determine that children cannot make responsible decisions about that danger, while adults can). Not to mention, the scope is limited in that alcohol is not available everywhere and you only show the card when purchasing.In contrast, vaccine information is private medical information that isn't readily available on sight. The scope is widespread in that its every indoor area. The protection is minor, because the vaccine protects people from symptoms but doesn't stop much of the actual spread. A vaccinated person is exactly as safe in a room with 3 vaccinated people as they are in a room with 3 unvaccinated people. So there isn't much of a justification, because if someone is unvaccinated and wants to go to an event full of people they are making a decision for themselves and can bear the consequences. Requiring a vax card is like deciding that 50 yr olds shouldn't drink, because they are incapable of making responsible decisions. If someone is vaxxed and wants to go to an event, them showing the card doesn't make the event any safer for anyone else or themselves but it does require giving up personal medical information and its widespread in how many times they have to show it.
>>81282389>require giving up personal medical informationWhat info, when and where you got your pokes? Yeah lemme just take your vax card to see whether you had depressive episodes, hospitalizations, or surgeries you fucking schizo
>>81282377There's a difference towards being empathetic towards someone and just being a bitch that gets bullied around by legitimate retards.
>>81282389It's funny how everyone remembers 9/11 but nobody remembers H1N1 was harsher than Covid and we just acted like nothing was wrong because we refused to let the government take our liberties. In turn we adapted quicker and less people died despite the 1.2B cases in a year.
>>81282450Governments have done this. And not just commie ones.
>>81282465>It's funny how everyone remembers 9/11 but nobody remembers H1N1 was harsher than Covid and we just acted like nothing was wrong because we refused to let the government take our libertiesThis right here. H1N1 felt like nothing because we weren't as cucked as we are today. Imagine telling people 10 years ago about forced lockdowns, vaccone passes and gay masks over a memeflu, they'd laugh at you.
>>81280433holy fucking shitthe absolute retard
>>81282450Well, yeah, private medical information is the legal term for it. If you dislike the term, then change the law. And, even if it is still relatively benign medical information that doesn't change my point, its still private information.
>>81280433d00d, standard was always dead.

Any tips on making a better red deck?I think I may be a bit too heavy on creatures. I could possibly remove the pyromancers and the related enchantment in favor of some more instants/sorceries and some different enchantments.
>>81284505>I think I may be a bit too heavy on creatures.pretty much, yesI like what you're doing with Magma Jet + Miracle spells but It's not quite clear to me what's your maindeck and what's your sideboard, you have too many one-ofsPut some Lava Darts in your deck it's a perfect way to proc your Shamans/Harmonic Prodigy
>>81284505What cards are you committed to i.e. what cards do you really want to run?I think you want to lower your curve with both creatures and spells - the 1-drop prowess creatures would be good, as well as stuff like lava spike or rift bolt.
>>81284620Guttersnipe and Harmonic. I could possibly drop the 4 pyromancers, Burning Earth, and Goblin bombardment.That would free up 6 card slots.I could further open up more spots by side boarding Abrade too, but not sure what I would use in their stead. How about Fireball or some more increasing vengeances?I'm tempted to get a second Valakut to increase the likeliness of play and sideboard two blood moons which I'd have to buy one more of as well.>>81284581I think I will get a play set of lava darts, and possibly pick up 2 more searing bloods as well.
>>81284202>>Modern>The fetch landsYou have Pioneer for that baby shit
>>81284758If you don't want to drop those, you probably want to have either soul-scar mage or the young pyromancers as your only other creature.In terms of spells, lava dart is a big one, as well as much cheaper spells. You want a lot of 1 mana spells and almost certainly light up the stage.In terms of mana, I'd look more at something like 4 ramunap ruins than a valakut angle - ideally, they're almost dead and ramunap works when you have 5 lands as opposed to 7.

>>81285020I'm going to order a play set or two of extended art light up the stage.I did find some cards I forgot I bought, play sets of skullcrack, mizzium mortars, and exquisite firecraft.I do have one copy of Radiate though which might be neat, but I may be falling back into my previous problem of too many one offs.
>>81285152It's okay to include some one-of fun-ofs where it's slightly suboptimal, but it can be cool to draw. Especially since this looks like you're playing with friends.If you're going to a local event, you can just sub them out for the more linear cards.
>>81282464This is why you should just kill the vaccinated if they get too close to you.Don’t won’t them shedding their spike cells all over in their obese huffing and puffing and sweat.
https://secretlair.wizards.com/us/outoftimesuperdropThe fuck is this?
>>81285376>The fuck is this?Is this your first time seeing secret lairs?
>>81285452Yes, is it just the new from the vault?
>>81285294I’d say take your meds, but I’m sure you flushed them down the toilet because you think the doctor is trying to control your mind.
>>81285575basically, they're print to order. They were made because one guy was a big fan of sneaker drops and wanted to emulate themThe best part is they're now printing new cards into them influenced by popular media in black border - there are now magic cards named after The Walking Dead characters, for example. Fortnite is next, and I am not joking (it is announced).
>>81285602That dude is borderline blind from shitting himself off all the yummy horse paste.
>>81285636The Fortnite one is just reprints, though. Thank fuck.Some of the lairs have been neat, but they're vastly outweighed by the awful.

>>81283439Feeling you my brother. Sadly some of us are doomed at always opening shit, so everybody else around us can crack ravs, murktide and tarns.The only way to not lose at this game is to only order singles and forget about your pack-cracking addiction (which should already be close to zero anyway).
>>81283439These were my opens from my 2 prereleases :)
Tested for few hours my meme R-storm for pioneer. It's slow as all shit and fragile as all fuck. Wont ever be a thing. But it still was a valuable lesson, because i learned how broken is birgi. Her flip side is the most powerful draw engine i've ever encountered. Just birgi + her flipped side and you can cast your entire deck in the turn if you mostly run 1cmc spells.About Moonveil Regent, i'm now a bit less optimistic than i was yesterday. No doubts it's a powerful and unique card, but finding him a home deck will probably be trickier than i initially expected. Already ordered 35 copies yesterday though, so i better try harder to find this fucker a home lol.

Is it a shit thing to do to buy cards off of your friend for like 20% over buy list prices?
>>81286941Also if said friend needed money within two weeks and didn't want to deal with ebay
>>81286754it's just a meme, i saw some comment back when this was spoiled that "omg you can play it in a deck full of wraths and can still attack after wrathing!" and thought it was kind of a dumb observationI mean, yeah, that is a thing I guess, but only in the sense that something like "you can play nameless inversion to grow your goyf" is a synergy. You can do it, but there's likely much better uses of your mana/card slots than that (If you actually wanted to do the dumb wrath meme, something like Haunted Plate Mail is probably better). At the very least, 4/4 on an initial 2 mana investment is above average for artifact animators (not sure what they're called. totems? statues?).
https://scryfall.com/sets/mmh2wtf are these
>>81286941You're giving him more than he'd get otherwise.
Will Kamigawa 2077 have flip cards?
>>81286831Didn't you read the post? That's what i'm trying. Speaking of which, i made some modifications, and now it's going way smoothier.I replaced the clowny mana generation consisting on 8 untap at each spell creatures and 4 sorcerer class upped to level 2. Sorcerer class was a cool card, but this whole engine was way too slow, and the mana being only availible for instants/sorceries ended up fucking me big time in several occasions.Now it's simply Runaway Steam-Kin + Birgi. Save me slots, is faster, can use the mana on whatever spell i want to, snowball way more efficiently once going off..That said, it comes with a drawback : only 8 mana generators, and i need to hit 2 to start to combo (t2 steam-kin onto t3 birgi is the dream scenario, it let you free to combo by next turn, after a bunch of cantrips effect you should have enough mana and dug deep enough to find either a flipped birgi or a regent), which is very fragile.I also lose access to U, and to the sorcerer class upped to level 3 which was my wincon.Now i've been forced to improvise for the wincon, and noticed the creatures would be enough to do the trick. Basically by the time you comboed off, your creatures have haste, trample, first strike and unblockable thanks to all your cantrips. So with the 4 extra slots i saved, i added as final cantrip Dragon Mantle. It serve the double purpose of being part of the draw engine and as wincon. Once you cleared your deck and have 30+ R in your pool, you pump your army of regents with +7/+0 each and swing for lethal. In goldfish, the deck usually combo off by turn 5 very consistently. Before that, it's quite rare, you can theorically win by T3, but the chances are incredibly thin, so realistically we should aim for a T4 kill as optimal objective.

>>81287152No it'll have three sided cards that make you roll a dice and double sided companions that make you satisfy TWO requirements to use them

Does anyone have any interest in Midnight Haunt now that the entire spoiler is out?The only thing I want from MH is to buy Evan Cagle's depiction of Liesa, Forgotten Archangel. https://twitter.com/cagle_evanSorry about that, Dmitry.

I like Innistrad, but I do not like Midnight Hunt. The latter strips the plane of its mood, its atmosphere, and replaces it with a disgusting blend of Hearthstone and modern day "pagans."

Will the Eldrazi cards have a new reprint anytime soon?
>>81291154Maybe in some gay premium set. I have doubts that they’ll put drazi in a standard legal set any time soon.Enjoy your reprint that raises the price of the card!
>>81291186Do you mean a Modern oriented set or Secret Lairs? Damn, I am new to paper Magic, and really wanted to try a green/red Eldrazi. Seems fun.
>>81291255Sets like modern horizons don’t include reprints of cards that are already modern legal last I checked, so yeah it could be a secret lair or some stupid shit like the commander precons or commander-legal sets. I think they’re doing core sets again after having canceled them for a second time, so MAYBE a core set could have Wasteland Strangler or Reality Smasher. But I wouldn’t bet on it, and there’s pretty much no chance they’d print a big eldrazi like Kozilek or Emrakul.

mtg is supposed to be bigger than ever.. so why does it feel so dead
>>81293986Because people may be buying and selling, but they aren't playing. And when you do play it, you understand why others have stopped: because newer card design has made the experience of playing the game feel like shit.

>>81296200i mainly thought about the tangle wire/smokestack synergy, which is what the whole proliferate angle is all about, but you might be right.

Why is Lotus Combo getting less and less popular in Pioneer? It's not a bad deck - even as a newbie I'm doing quite well and I'm mostly dying to clock rather than my opponents.
>>81297030Because its a precon. Everyone says how much they wish precons for formats existed but nobody actually wants to be the loser playing a precon at fnm.
>looking to sell substantial collection worth over six figures>decide to see what's up with some FB groups>message admin of one who has a post stating they buy all cards but especially looking for higher end stuff>we chat a bit and then dude ghosts once he realizes I am not some mouthbreathing mong that he can easily exploit for a quick profit>third person that did that of three I chatted with, at least one was honest beforehand and said he wouldn't pay more than 45% of TCGLowFriendly reminder that people who created and run these groups almost all intentionally made it so that they see posts first and can take advantage of the uninformed. They also sticky their own buying posts which are fucking shams as well.On another note I cannot wait to get away from first Lessons and now Dungeons in limited. Made for such boring and repetitive gameplay hopefully next set will be at least a touch more diverse.
>>81297342Joke's on them - I will finally build my favourite deck in paper for cheap. Fuck WotC but I'm okay with taking this kind of consoom bait.
Bros I'm gonna do it, I'm gonna make BG Delirium work in post-Innistrad Pioneer, I'm not sure how yet, but I'm gonna fucking do it.>>812970301. It's a combo deck that plays very differently from everything else in the format, there's a dedicated playerbase for the deck rather than something that people jump on when the deck is doing good, we still have some results from those players, they just aren't big in numbers2. The meta isn't particularly good for it, there's plenty of interactive aggro (RB Arcanist, Mono Black, Spirits, UW Ensoul, UR Phoenix) on the rise while Midrange/Tap-Out Control is underplayed outside of Niv to Light3. Since around mid-Strixhaven other combo decks started to gain popularity, there's 4c Ascendancy, RG Bard Class and even a little bit of Locust Sage combo, Lotus no longer feels like the only real option for combo players in the format
Quick question, manabase for 5-color commander (Child of Alara, Reaper King)I have one of each shockland and a fuckton of taplands/gainlandsMy budget is around $60Do I buy some of the cheap fetches, or something else?

>>81301515I was asking for advice/specific examples of B
kinda weird how much more popular pioneer has been getting as of late. mh2 must've really done a number on modern.
>have to spend $500 on 4 ragavans to keep jund up to dategod this shit is exhausting
>>81302311Quit the game dude, sell all your cards and buy metal 15mm american civil war miniatures
>>81302064Alright, here's some specific examples of decks that like looting:-You're playing some dredge-based strategy, in which case you can dredge and then dump those dredgers back in the bin.-You're playing reanimator, in which case the looting draws you closer to your reanimate spells and gives you the opportunity to bin your fatties-For something like Consider, you can use it to potentially increase your delirium or threshold while giving you card selection. Also synergies with stuff like Jace Vyrn's Prodigy, Lurrus, Dreadhorde Arcanist, Goyf, and basically anything that cares about either card count or card type in the graveyard.-You have a "discard matters" card, like... uh... Flameblade Adept? Not too many of these to be honest.-The most obvious synergy is with flashback, aftermath, and basically anything you can cast from your graveyard like Haakon, Demilich, and Hogaak-remain neutral or even increase your card advantage (i.e. faithful mending draw 2 regular spells discard 2 flashback spells so you now essentially have 4 things you can cast).
Is it worth getting into Pioneer? I'm scared WOTC will release Pioneer Horizons and ruin the format.
>>81302356I'm honestly surprised they didn't just declare Modern Horizons sets to be Pioneer legal to wring out a few extra sales.
>>81302329This.I stopped playing/buying. Way happier. Way more money in bank. No sjw shit.
>>81302294Modern was ruined by MH2, Historic was ruined by Arena-only cards. There's no way out of the Pioneer bunker that doesn't involve getting infected by bullshit.
>>81302311Why would you want to play Jund after it's been horribly powercrept for years?
>>81302356>Is it worth getting into Pioneer?if your local scene has enough people for it, I highly recommend itand I don't say this out of spite against Modern, I'd recommend people to play Modern too but it's much easier to recommend cheaper formats>>81302414>>81302708one of the biggest reasons they decided to create Pioneer was because when they chose to inject the first supplemental product into Modern, there was no longer a format where you could say "only cards that were in Standard at some point are legal"people play Pioneer because its card pool is defined by Standard sets, if they ever try to print "Pioneer Horizons" or something similar, people would quit in droves because it goes against the very reason the format existsit's completely different from Modern where at least some portion of the playerbase was interested in "giving support to underdeveloped archtypes through a dedicated set" and card legality was definied by the Modern card frame, I repeat, if one day they decide to print supplemental sets into Pioneer, 99% of the playerbase just quits the format because that's not what they signed up forit would be the equivalent of saying Uncommons are legal in Pauper or letting people play with 4x copies of cards in EDH/Singleton, it doesn't make any sense
>>81302986>it would be the equivalent of saying Uncommons are legal in Pauper or letting people play with 4x copies of cards in EDH/SingletonOr printing planeswalkers with rules text saying that they can be used as commanders.
>>81280367My opponent has a Rotting Regisaur. If I unsummon his Rotting Regisaur during his upkeep, does he still discard a card? If he has no cards in hand, does that mean he has to discard the Rotting Regisaur?
>>81303213Yes and yes. First the ability goes on the stack, opp passes priority, you use priority to play card over ability, card resolve first, ability resolve after.
>>81303261Thank you! This also means I win the game. Woohoo!
>>81302986>it would be the equivalent of saying Uncommons are legal in Paupertbf nowadays SilverBlack is much more fun than Pauper.But yeah the point of Pioneer is that's the the format where old Standard decks go to revive old glories. And it's actually achieved that, even if the top tiers are goodstuff piles from the whole card pool at least one deck from every Standard rotation in Pioneer's scope is still competitive.Mono Black Devotion is real.Esper Control is real.Abzan Midrange is real.Aristocrats is real.Pummeler is real.Mono Red Prowess is real.WUx Approach is real.Cat Oven is real.Modern never had even a semblance of this, it started broken and has not been shit for very brief periods, but it's usually a cesspool. And I say that as someone who made a lot of cash with the filth.
Any suggestions for side load zipper binders? (preferably 9 pocket but smaller is fine too). Almost every one I see has reviews complaining about bending cards.

Fuck happened to this game? I see this new set and its all so fucking garbage. I don't even wanna go to the prerelease and i fucking love prereleases
>>81304730What don't you like about it? I myself hate furfags.
>>81304769the cards. All of them are boring and godawful. Plus they are continuing the terrible trend of adding Planeswalkers to the game. God this game has gone to absolute dogshit
>>81304795If there is not a planeswalker that looks just like me, how will I enjoy the game?
>>81304795Has there been a recent standard set without planeswalkers? Sounds like you should of quit ages ago.
>>81304810i have already quit 2 years ago when the coof oblitaterated game stores. I still check out the prereleases to see if a set is worth going to to have some fun but i have been let down every damn time
>>81304826How come you haven't learned that lesson in the last two years? Did you know the next pre release is also going to have planeswalkers? And the one after that too. They will always have planeswalkers. Why are you unable to understand this on your own?
>>81304800I'm sure WotC will eventually correct their mistake of not representing me, a big dick latino.
>>81304908Maybe Huatli has a big dick.
Does anyone know where to find a decent limited set review? I don't want to pay for ChannelFireball.
>>81305025Limited Resources on youtube.
lil' tip for the yurofrens who want a super cheap penny spec : load up on Esika's Chariot.Card is around 30c, but only 600 copies left for the regular version (and as much for the shit-looking extended border or whatever), from a set who wasn't opened much.The card is going straight up since august in the US, and it sees play in most formats (even saw a G troony top8ing with it).Even if it only reach let say 3€, that's already a x10.Of course, remember not to go balls deep, it potentially can pop up in a challenger deck at any time.
>>81305025?They don't release them for free anymore?
>>81305532I could've sworn I had the alt art version of this, but nope. For the longest time I wanted to play a deck that used the Chariot with the newer Jolrael to barb-dick the opponent.
>>81304711Magister of Worth
>>81305563Then it's maybe time for you to get a playset fren. The card is really underrated in a way. Even if you attack only once and the chariot get killed, you still have 3x 2/2's left otb. And the copy token trigger isn't limited to creatures, but to any kind of tokens, which i'm sure is very appreciated in edh. Also a great blink target, and the day jotc try to bank on the hecckin caterinos, this is probably the best way to go wide for a cat tribal.That's a lot of good points for a penny card.
>>81305664Don't post the chud version.>(You can define women’s clothing as you see fit. Be reasonable.)
>>81305559Nope, it's behind a paywall. There are others but I don't know if they're good.>>81305458Maybe I should have specified that I'm looking for a written review, but I might give them a try.

>>81301592we don't have it yet afaik. though In 3.0 has other promising art as well
>>81305776Okay then, what are the best commons and uncommons in all colors? And what are the archetypes? I can already tell you that werewolf lightning bolt is pretty good.
>>81305884Sadly i can't help you, but i can give you this recent mkm article : https://www.cardmarket.com/en/Magic/Insight/Articles/A-First-Look-at-Midnight-Hunt-LimitedThey list all the best commons per color for limited (at least according to the writer's pov).
>>81305936This was decent, thanks.
>>81305564Holy shit, I want my pipi on her popo.
>>81304826I stopped in 2017 when I moved to a town that didn't have a game store.I move back during the coof when game stores were still closed and when they reopened I see all this shit.The cards are just stupid and in some it's obvious they were never tested, so now they're selling test cards, special packs that are 2-3x the price of regular set booster packs, fat packs look fucked, and their artwork has a lot of forced SJW shit in it too.
>>81281277If you had any doubt whether you'd side with the Nazi's as a German citizen during WW2, doubt no more.
Ayo is this card seriously so expensive because of Lurrus alone?
Attention attention this is not a drillSomeone just bought the entire stock of Worldfire on Cardmarket
>>81306496Kind of funny how the same crowd calling Trump and his supporters Nazis are now demanding people to show papers to do go places, and the powers that be now want to require papers for even interstate travel as well.
>>81306564that was me
>>81306554>because of Lurrus alone?it's because of Hammertime anon, Memnite is a staple of the deck.also Affinity but it has considerably less numbers than Hammertime.
>>81306887Would it be expensive on Hammertime without the Lurrus synergy?
>>81306985It's a good weenie drop in hammer to help activate puresteel's metalcraft or to be a threat to ragavan.
>>81306985yes, the main way Hammertime wins the game is by putting the Hammer on a creature on turn 2 and just dealing 20 damage (or 10 infect) Lurrus is a freeroll that lets you play the long game if your opponent happens to have a lot of early interaction or your early draws suck. The deck is completely functional without Lurrus.
>>81307290Are you telling me Modern kills on turn 2 instead of turn 3 now?
>>81307404I'm telling you that one of the specific strengths of Hammertime is being able to hit people for 10 combat damage on turn 2 or 20 combat damage/10 infect on turn 3.If you want slower games than that you can pick any of the many monkey delirium decks running around, they like longer games where they can extract value from their busted cards.
So when is Lurrus, Bauble, and Ragavan getting the ban?
>>81307477Never, and dont complain again.
>>81305678chud? what's a chud?it sounds like a chocolate dessert

>>81307823Where do you guys take these "information" from? Because its far from reality, as far as I know.
Imagine seeing them permanently and irreversibly ruin the game at sanic speed across multiple formats, and your response is to flee from Modern to Modern Jr. so you can keep giving WotC money. Being a Magic player is the only thing more cucked than having a daughter.
>>81307823>>81307860>>81307877>>81307882Modern was shit from the beginning, it amazes me how it took not one but two Modern Horizons for people to realize that

>>81308011Yes it was, nigger. It was literally created from shitting up Extended.
>>81308028And yet people were enjoying Modern for years, until the MH sets. It's almost like.... you are full of shit
>>81308034>And yet peopleMemedernettes aren't people.
I've always seen Modern as the format for brainlets who wanted simpler archetypes and poorfags who couldn't afford duals.
>>81308082That's what it was, they're complaining now because it's rotating and getting more expensive
>>81308082>spending hundreds/thousands of dollars on cardboard
>mfw I found the skeletons of the birthingpod and splinter twin decks I was making for modern and almost had finished before the ban hit.Well this is nostalgic and a bit depressing. Oh well, still some great resources to build other things with.
>>81308082No, that's Legacy compared to Vintage. Modern is just a better format where skill matters more than matchup.

>>81308325it's /mtg/ now boomer
>>81307860I liked Modern because I could still run my older decks, but an LGS started hosting Pioneer so I'm making a Pioneer legal deck now.
Stop replying to the shitalian whineposter retards
Should I unironically and literally mainboard pic related if I play Green in Modern? How often would it turn out useless?
>>81308399Might as well play Force of Vigor
>>81308418Different budget tho
>>81308191>modern>skill matters>dude fires off turn 2 combo and kills meSkill, sure thing bud.
>>81308399>still playing Memedern
>>81308432Haha FoV is $20? Man I got my copies at $4.You should only maindeck Claim if you are up against a lot of artifact/enchantment decks normally and if you also have some artifacts and enchantments you can blow up to emergency gain 4 life for the burn matchup.
>>81308459I play ban-resistant decks I'm just waiting for it to be balanced again
>>81308465I'll just board a one-off of FoV I guess
>>81308432Sure, but if the life gain proves to be a problem you'll have to find a way to counter it.Like skull crack.But Force of Vigor would be better.
>>81308465There are only 365 FoVs for sale on cardmarket, it's not going to get better
Was there ever a good, skill-intensive deck to play that was meta in Modern? As far as I can remember the format was dominated by low IQ, boring aggro decks like RDW, Affinity, Jund, Blade variants, etc.
>>81308565no one cares, animu loser
>>81308613But I don't watch animu?
>>81308640Ignore him, it's the no-life shitalian whineposter still obsessed with someone that used to post here
>>81308565>good, skill-intensive deck>ModernPick one.
>>81308742Delete that shit.
>>81308742retardbtw glad spike lost the trophy race he is a smug arrogant prick who lost to a dumb br because he was too stubborn to play non-feelsmart durdle decksduhhhhh how do i win the most trophies possible in 1 week? better play 5 color ferrous omnath bullshit instead of just playing burn
>>81308565why ask this?youre never going to agree with answerslet me guess, you think grixis death's shadow isn't skill intensive
Which format is the most popular in your area?For me, it’s a mix of commander and modern
>>81309004From what I've seen pre-covid it was EDH and draft where I live.
>>81309004At my old LGS, commander and Pauper.At the new place it's commander the Pioneer.
This is everything wrong with nu-mtg art>confusing and not immediately identifiable>blurry realism that looks like shitHow did this get the Green light?
>>81307823>FleeingI was there day 1 and only took a break when Uro/Omnath was the norm (during the lockdowns at that, so really it was a blessing in disguise).
>>81307882Imagine being wrong about Pioneer after taking out a loan for fetchlands, and thinking your own sunk cost fallacy extends to other formats.The second they release Pioneer Horizons is when I'm jumping ship, but as long as they have Modern Midwits to siphon money out of, Pioneer will hopfully be safe long enough for the cultural zeitgeist to shift into something different (and hopefully better).
>>81306564>it's truewtf is going on in this retarded clownworld?
>>81307823No fucking shit sherlock, it was the plan all along.Pioneer (and I play pioneer) has no purpose beside recycling all those bulk rares that saw no play in modern but now have a dedicated format so the price skyrocketed.They are right when they call us goyim.
