Initiative and monarch are inherently broken like energy, except they are both resource and engine and reward you for winning, making you win harder.
Initiative is better monarch, and by defacto makes stalemates into blowouts. You'd know why this is bad if you played magic.

Well, yeah, it's impossible to play any strategy anymore that doesn't revolve around removing a turn one ragavan or to win turn three Amulet Bloom deck. It's almost like the only format where you could play anything that resembles what modern used to look like is in the casual format and people want to get away from your modern horizons rimjob format.
Auto-win threats that have to be answered immediately are fair game to remove but in older formats you used to be able to get accrued value from having a creature on the field. Every tarmogoyf wasn't immediately answered by one mana removal every time it hit the field. That's honestly why people loved tarmogoyf, was because it handled the bolt test handily.
I think about ten years ago you could flaunt a sense of superiority for being a modern player over commander and standard, but you're both in a rotating format and your format has zero variance getting the worst of both formats.
If you played commander, you could be playing a game you've never seen before and actually have to push yourself as a pilot to make choices, but modern is so played out, that you could staple a flowchart to a retard, give them your deck and it'd play out all the same.
So I mean, lap it up in your "competitive" format, that's just a bowling alley with the gutters shored up for deck building predesignated by the FIRE design at WOTC and flowchart the top eight most popular decks that kill you on turn 3-4 or it's over.
>>
>>86825883
you know - weird thing to me is that there are modern cards banned in legacy, like ragavan, dreadhorde arcanist, and wrenn n 6.
makes me wonder if modern deck tailored to beat a legacy deck would do so

>If you played commander, you could be playing a game you've never seen before and actually have to push yourself as a pilot to make choices

>>
>>86825902
Those card SHOULD be banned in all formats, but WOTC can't or else they will have to admit that they printed a supplemental to the eternal format that only made the format worse.

>>86825922
What deck in modern now is NOT comprised mostly of cards from the past three years? If you play one FNM, you have seen everything this format is capable of. The deckpool is so fucking limited. In commander you can expect you will see somebody slotting in pet cards that have no reason to see play but still do something you didn't expect.
>>
>>86825949
Commmandertrannies out
>>
>>86825902
Probably, but it wouldn't mean much. I'm pretty sure a standard deck could beat some legacy deck just because they wouldn't have an answer to card with CMC greater than 4 but that doesn't mean standard power level is higher.

Ah, yes, flow chart magic to a "T". I've hated delver 10 years ago for what it did to magic and I still hate how it warped everything into a tunnel of denying everything your opponent is doing. You've played the game if you played delver, you've only played a warped concept of it.

The three cards you mentioned are all banned because Legacy has Force of Will and Daze. They're much easier to answer in Modern.
>Why not ban FoW and Daze?
Because then combo is actually good.
>Why not ban combo?
Because having a free answer to the main gatekeeper in the format makes people who sleeve up Brainstorm feel smart.

the mechanic is extremely poorly desgined for 1v1 magic
it's like monarch but designed in a way that favors the initiative player much more than the opponent
what I mean by that is drawing an extra card is good for most decks, but shit like
>search your library for a basic
>put 2 +1/+1 counters on a creature you control
>target player loses 5 life
>create a 4/1 with menace
>reveal the top 10 cards, pick a creature to put on the board with 3 +1/+1 counters, it gains hexproof
clearly can be better used by the white stompy aggro player than a control deck trying to look for a wrath or a combo deck looking for their finisher, the best these decks get is the scry 2 and make a treasure

the answer to this mechanic isn't just "play creatures to deal combat damage lol" because the white initiative player will always be ahead on the creature game, and make better use of the dungeon effects
the answer is to never let them introduce the initiative in the first place which is way harder to do than just dealing combat damage with creatures

An epic duel between powerful wizards. High fantasy setting with a postapocalyptic undertone. Mostly medieval but it depends on the plane. The deck representes the accumulated knowledge of each fighter.
>>
>>86826794
>An epic duel between powerful wizards
That's incredibly vague and doesn't help design a game. Do you want a game where variance generally decides the outcome (nuMtG, EDH), or a game where something resembling skill decides the outcome (mid 00's MtG, FaB, Netrunner)?

>>86826529
the real big brain move when playing ante is to play absolute jank (like big beaters or burn) that you don't care losing or costs almost nothing to replace. then by the off chance you win you could win big if your opponents was playing an actual deck
>>
>>86827095
>Oh the ironing
there's quite literally one billion different ways you can build a blue legacy deck

>>86827137
White initiative is a specific archetype. "Blue" is whatever. A better comparison would be Tempo and playing any Daze deck that isn't UR is just incorrect.

>>86826714
I would use more supertype. The flash example is good, but I also think of thing like a "fire" supertype for thing like fireball or fire elemental to allow for more flavorful design.

Is Tron more fun in Pauper or Modern?
>>
>>86829116
Modern Tron has either u (bad) or g Tron (mediocre).
Pauper has urzas breakfast (bad), blinktron (bad), ponza Tron (bad), WUBRG Tron (bad) or cascade Tron (bad).
>>
>>86829116
I like it more in modern because green tron and eldrazi tron are my favorite versions of the deck
but if someone asked me where is the best place to play control tron, I think pauper would be the answer

it really depends on which version of tron we're talking about and what type of archtype you enjoy (combo, ramp, control etc)
>>
>>86829200
Tron isn't super well positioned on pauper and some MU are total ass (ponza and burn come to mind).

Was. it is better than commander because people focused more on winning rather than creating a board or a "story" with your cards. Also there were less need for tutor cards (even when they were testing the format within lgs during SoI and ixalan).
When my LGS got the invite to test the format i played a WR Nahiri control, just got to cheat Emrakul once tho.

>>86830214
forgot pic
BTW didn't play it much during dominaria-eldraine but made a deck for Jhoira, also bought the eldraine decks (and played a event using one of them) (also played the MTGArena event)

Why it wasn't popular? Because commander trannies claim they are poor and can't afford standard... (yeah...) They even bitched because all the brawl decks had a card (in all of them) that would become a commander staple/really good card.... Yeah, the same fuckers who buy into new cards and commander decks...

IMo it would be better with pioneer pool instead of only being standard, but whatever, it is dead.

Cube with ante sounds fun. I had a rule like that in my YGO cube since that was something they did in one of the story arcs. Players had 30 card decks and 45 total cards drafted/dealt, so they would have to side in new cards in between rounds to adjust their decks if they lost cards (or just wanted to try something new). It was a lot of fun and added stakes to the matches and changed how players approached games depending on how much or how little they had to lose

Yes/and yes.
Coomander trannies hated that it was 1v1 and can't use 3 1 drop artifact accelerants and decks are 60 cards. Unironically the coomander trannies ruined that format, too.
The decks were varied, there was support for the format that you could play in standard, and the cards were genuinely unique and interesting but not overpowered.

They complained in forums like mtgsalvation and maybe twitter that because of it being only-standard legal cards the decks would cost alot and once they rotated they would lose all the money invested. (remember that those are the ones buying mythic rare creatures on release.)

They complained that arcane signet (a card that was in all 4 eldraine brawl decks) would become a commander staple and it was predatory (yeah, and some of them preordered it for like $10+, the decks were like $16-18 and also had a shockland inside). Even Brian "the professor" complained about it (he mostly entered the echo chamber and made a video with the arguments the retards pushed). Also the "why we don't have new brawl decks like the ones in eldraine" is because those faggots complained of the 60 cards decks and licked wotc toes for the commander decks being released with every new set.

This post would be 100% right if you didn't imply Commander decks have the potential to be unique. They don't. Every single one is Ramp - Card Draw - Wincon.

>>
>>86831150
I was one of the anti-brawl dudes. The main issue was the rotation, since you'd get attached to the shit and oops it rotated out. I believe I came up with the idea of having it just either be non-rotating, or expand the card pool with aggressive bannings. I was 100% aokay with the format, namely because 60 card singleton requires a different sort of deck building compared to 100 card.
With EDH, I feel like deck construction is largely the same, due to having to fill 100 cards. I have the coomander itself, and Sol Ring to start. I might as well include greaves and swiftfoot, the relevant mana rocks, and fetches + duals with utilities and basics rounding out the numbers. That's half the cards there. It's worse if you're running black, you just get all the tutors you can. Blue? Cyclonic Rift and the same counterspell package everyone else runs. The free spells if you control your commander? Blue is the best since it's free counterspell.
People will say "oh just adjust for your meta!" but it's like, we'd do kitchen table sure. But we'd print out toppity tier decks with massive tuning. Once you play top of the line EDH, Vintage Highlander, you don't go back. The battlecruiser meta feels awful since MTG combat isn't very deep and due to the stall out nature, whoever plays his wincon last wins. 75% is just ramp, do thing draw card, and oops someone won with an infinite. It's okay the other 3 continue on anyway lol. 75% feels like playing top of the line but with the balls cutoff.
All the "pro advice" is from some bugman who makes up complete horseshit and uses SEO to just get clicks anyway.

Planeswalker cards are now deck identity cards that represent types of spellcasters rather than specific characters.

Lands are moved to a land deck and are played with your planeswalker cards, for most decks on a minus ability, though some "green" planeswalkers will have their plus ability put a land into play.
>>
>>86831496
MTGO lets you multi-queue (or did when I played) and so people are often playing multiple games at once and they'll just make you sit there and wait while they make decisions in another game.

This is on top of conventional bad manners. A game that should take 15 minutes will take the full 30 minutes of the opponent's time on the chess clock because they'll make you wait as they finish a match or draft elsewhere.

Foils didn't used to curl, probably these reasons:
- they used a thermo-stable plastic foil
- they layered the paper that composes the card in alternating grain so that the curvature of the paper in response to moisture and temperature acts against the other layers creating stability
- they used better quality paper that was resistant to heat and moisture

Something happened to their original printer, Magna Carta I think it was. Moved operations to China, shut down or sold off facilities that did good work, some number of bullshit cost-cutting measures.

If you want your favorite character being respected you need to drop any atempts at reading the new story and also ignore all new shit art-story-spoilers. If you want to have a continuity then play a rpg based on the ip (even at bar fights, degen sex, etc it will be better than oficial story)
>>86833002
Shit story, if you take a low paying job at wizards you can probably make this come true in a few years.
>>86832998
What makes foils curl is the diference between layers of the card absorbing moisture and how much it expands them(ink also conts a bit). Making a card in plastic would create another problem with pros who goes with only a few certain cards in the new "foil" soo they can use it as advantage (marked cards)

They only test with pre-existing archetypes. Only the most minimal effort is made to determine how a new set will impact the environment.

I think rigging your hand is the most retarded thing imaginable. But the reason why they do it is because players are fucking retarded just like the majority of gamblers are retarded. They don't understand that there's a luck aspect to the game and that sometimes you draw bad and it's OKAY for that to happen sometimes just as much as it's okay for that to happen to your opponent and winning games you shouldn't win because they get screwed.

Those players are the majority and they will bitch loudly about getting mana screwed. They are shitty casuals but they unfortunately also buy MTX so that's why they are given a leg up. And they are so stupid that they don't care that competitive serious players will use the system to build greedy low-land decks and use the system against them because they'll never blame the system but the other player.

Same goes for Best of Ones. Stupid players hate sideboarding, how many fucking people did you meet playing paper who bitched about sideboarding and it was very quickly clear they lacked the mental capacity to sideboard.

I don't have anything to say about that. I feel like it would be absolutely insane to develop a system, once figured out by the competitive players, to guarantee a one-of in your deck to always appear. But I wouldn't put it past Wizards to appeal to retards that way, if someone builds a deck with their one-copy of a Mythic, check their collection that they only own ONE, and guarantee they draw it every single match so they can play with their super "rare" card.

>What, do you think they're just contracting those washed up pros to sit around and do nothing?

>>86833452
I'm no programmer, but to develop a system that can figure out a sick topdeck based on the board state is so fucking complicated I don't believe it exists. I've ripped well in Limited in Arena frequently, but at the end of the day it's like a 1/10 chance to rip an out from the one or two cards in your deck, it's NOT unrealistic.

To me, it's just the product of the fact you aren't playing the people you're drafting with. They topdeck well because if you're good at the game and winning they will pair you with better players. The 6-0s will play the 6-0s and let's face it, those people tend to have good decks so it would appear the game is biased against you but it's because you're playing winners.

In full disclosure I'm playing on my friend's account. And no offence to him he is very much an amateur and loses a lot. So when I take control, IF there is a matchmaker system it would pair me with worse players.

I used to be dumb and run 25 lands on Arena, with one memorable game where I drew 35 cards and still never made my 5th land drop before dying.

Best of 1 is hilarious. You can run hyper-aggro and if you get the Play you just win. And going second you lose almost every game.

The matchmaker will hate you if you win too many in a row. Win 10 games in a row? Prepare to do 20 games going second, in a row.

>>86833400

Never heard of that for arena. YGO duel links used to have this with the release shuffler. It took nearly a year for players to figure it out.

>>86833452
>>86833517
This I actually have seen a lot of. I play a lot and am surprised by how often it happens. Even more, I watch a bunch of streamers play and it seems to happen to them an insane amount. It even seems to happen to me a lot where certain cards if I draw one of my win cons and it gets destroyed I will quickly draw 3 or even all 4 copies if we go to topdecking.

It's not dynamically figuring out the best card. If it's even real it actually just has some high impact cards that are coded as higher priority to help ensure more streamable games.
>>
>>86833600
I think it's part of the shuffling system where it figures out on average when you need to draw that card to win the game
>>
>>86833600
I really don't play on Arena enough to understand all the bullshit they have secretly injected into the game. Like, I know about the opening hand land thing, but if you say there's more shit going on I'll believe you. I just am doubtful of it because I don't have the experience with the program itself. My friend tells me all this paranoid shit that we've discussed here with a winner queue and loser queue that the streamers talk about and I just really don't care to research it. Because I'm so fucking beaten by the Internet and the people making up shit just to get clicks that I don't really want to go through the effort to see who is credible or not, especially in this game where NOBODY is credible anymore.

When I sit down and smurf on his account I crush. Seriously I haven't gone any lower than 6-3 in draft. I know I'm good at the game but I don't know how much of that is built on the fact my friend loses all the time.

Best of Ones has simply got to be one of the worst if not worst thing to happen to Limited. Why the fuck would I bother drafting sideboard cards when I can just smash Game 1. I went to a paper event for the first time in nearly a decade and most players I sat across from weren't sideboarding and I was like, "Oh my god, the baseline skillset is so fucking bad now".

>there is a matchmaker system
anon, mtg arena staff have said at least 2 times that there is a matchmaker system. The last time they said (that i remember) was when standard (or maybe it was historic, i don't remember) was dominated by uro/golos decks and they said they have changed the odds of people without meta cards in their deck of facing decks with those cards.
They have also said similar things about match ups of aggro/control/midrange.

Also arena is famous for making people flood or screwed in mana. Good that you haven't experienced it in draft for exemple.

I don't even know if there's a list of all the bullshit programmed into Arena that would catch you up. As certainly any YouTuber who makes such a video or document isn't going to get their Christmas Preview Cards. Not that you could trust any YouTuber in this game nowadays.

Except Magic Aids. Shilling for him, can't believe someone like that exists in Magic. They cancelled him and he didn't quit because he actually cares about the game.

It probably doesn't rig the draws but it is definitely coded where it knows your archetype and will match you against decks with silver bullets against it. If you add Nine Lives you will get matched against decks with Bonecrusher Giant, Farewell, Back to Nature etc. I also find it suspicious how often you will get games where your opponent has a perfect and immediate answer to everything in your opening hand.

This has never been and never could possibly be the standard. Remember the bell curve.
>>
>>86833712
It's pretty easy to demonstrate. Grab a starter deck for standard and play non-ranked BO1 a bunch. You'll face mostly off-meta and other starter decks.

Grab your T1 list and run in the non-ranked BO1 queue. I do all 15 wins every day and I haven't seen a starter deck even once. I don't even really see jank decks.

I remember playing a mono-red aggro deck with 10 lands in best of 1 as a joke and it ran just as good as my 20 land version. That shuffler is fucky.
>>
>>86833833
some polish guy on yt did a 4 land mono R aggro deck and got a 2 land opener every game with a garunteed 3rd land on the 2nd draw shit was crazy
>>
>>86833833
Even the non-conspiracy theorists agree the shuffler will smooth your opening hand.

The only things contested are how many other ways and to what extent the draws are manipulated.

>>
>>86833824
I remember a rumor from a long time ago that it had something to do with the rarities in your deck. So since tier 1 decks tend to be stuffed with rares/mythics, it skews the matchmaking. I did feel like I won a LOT more with my 0 mythics/rares mono-U tempo deck than my other decks, but I wasn't really paying attention to the match ups, so I can't say anything certain.
>>
>>86833880
what if I'm playing with shit mythics
>>
>>86833922
Get fucked
>>
>>86833880
it has to be. I remember making a shitty pauper version of a decklist because of jew drop rates on wildcards and there is this unique sub meta of decks that avoid the top dogs via matchmaking but dominate these shit tier games
>>
>>86833934
I'm convinced that's why mono blue puts up results
it's not a particularly good deck, and has a horrid matchup against Grixis, which is the best deck, but I suppose it dodges it often enough and gets the free wins
>>
>>86833934
Well last time i made a deck just to get daily challenges i made a mono black and the 2 times i played a got matched against the mono blue that plays the serpents that get a discount on cmc soo i guess this holds.

Collector Booster boxes might be fun but standard sets are boring.
>>
>>86834188
Just a draft booster box of whatever set from the past few years seems interesting to you. You specified for fun rather than for profit, so there's not much that should go into a decision like that beyond "I like the set." You can browse card lists on Scryfall if you want to know for sure what's in each one or at least get a feel for it.
>>
>>86834232
Any reason why a draft boosters than normal boosters?

Draft are the normal boosters. They added set and collector recently.

BUT it's only 24 packs and it is probably quite expensive and hard to find now.
It was dirt cheap when it released, I think it was cheaper then Stardard draft box at that time.
>>
>>86834253
Draft boosters are normal boosters. They offer a bunch of different boxes nowadays, draft boosters are the traditional 15-card packs you're probably used to. Set boosters and collector boosters are aimed more at collectors and feature stuff like additional foils, a chance at more than one rare per pack, alternate artworks/card frames, etc. Draft boosters are still the best option for those who just want to play the game, though.

why would they play cEDH and complain about powerful decks? Every cEDH deck has a T0~T3 win combo. Unless they were playing casual, but why would you structure "casual" in a tournament way.
Or do you mean this was like dual commander? White-ish aggro is the metagame of that format, why would they complain about that?
Your LGS is either full of retards or you made stuff up.
But yeah, casual commander is about doing different whacky mtg shit while talking and drinking with your bros, not a competitive format. It's basically a medium for socialization,

>>
>>86834372

>>
>>86834407
It really is. Basically the coomander players wanted to play for packs. LGS set something up for them and it's a "laid back environment" and they get pissed off when anyone brings anything remotely "not fun" like what the fuck did they expect to happen?
>>
>>86834384
nta, but warhammer actually has the cons of standard and the pros of edh. Completely unbalanced with one good metagame list, and basically a rotating format, because every new codex makes that army the strongest with a new metagame list. It's best when you just shoot the shit with friends and whatever random combination of plastic armymen you like the most. Painting them is also a nice passtime. Used to do it with a friend while preparing for exams. I don't miss dealing with the logistics of transporting minis.
>>86834440
I'm surprised it didn't immediately devolve into cedh. I guess I'm luck that my lgs has more normal people. casual edh is where you play your dumb casual and interesting stuff and bringing competitive stuff is looked down upon, but when you join a tournament it's no bars held, and most people play both.

I recently opened my old MTG collection while cleaning my office and I got the urge to play, but every LGS near my town is closed and everyone my age with the inclination to play this game flees the town as soon as they can so I installed MTGA yesterday. What's the problem with it asides from the obvious grind? I have only played like 5 matches so far. I mostly wanted to try drafting but I can already tell this is gonna result in days of grinding shitty daily missions to do a draft where I get mana screwed and lose. Still gonna try it out though

What do you mean? That it takes a long fucking time to build up a collection if I'm not willing to give these fucks money? I assumed this was the case but the booster wildcards made me a bit hopeful having a single ok deck wouldn't take much effort.
>decks not randomized
I have no doubts that's the case, I also got the impression my first matches were against bots with names since their behaviours were full on retard but I have no way of proving this
>>
>>86835489
Standards is the least appealing format. They didn't bother to code in the older cards to play other formats, not even Pioneer.
Literally no reason to play Arena other than learning to play the game.
>>
>>86835408
Bring back counterspell in standard.
>>
>>86833452
That's because you play way more on Arena than in paper. On average in paper you will play a couple of games once per week during FNM, with Arena you can easily play a dozen games per day every day. Top deck are more frequent on Arena because you play more game, so if something has only 1% chance of happening you will probably need to wait months to see it happens in paper, meanwhile on Arena, depending on how much you play this can happen once per two weeks.

>What's he help against?
unlicensed hearse players wait until greasefang's ability goes on the stack in order to use it, so you just eat all of your graveyard with a single tasigur and start beating down with a 4/5
he's naturally good in grindy games where you don't find greasefang early
