yfw they only invented treasures because wotc was planning to replace all colors with Black
>>88100520Red, Green, White, Black, Blue
>>88100546You like white the least?
>>88100520>TQWhite, Black, Green, Red and Blue.It really depends on the archetype tho. I absolutely fucking hate UW Control but loved UW Weenie back then during the RtRtR Standard.
>>88100573maybewhat will you do about it, chud?
>>88100600White is like the inoffensive bland middle ground you don't care about.
Obligatory Aragorn fix
>>88100520>Stouthearted>Not the braveFor fuck's sake
U, R, G <<W<<<B
>>88100580Is this a mix of strixhaven and ravnica?
>>88099829There's no hidden message about race in this one. The bears aren't the ones fading from history, they're the ones thriving after the works of man have been destroyed. Also them being white probably wasn't even in the prompt, that artist just likes painting white fur (shows up a lot in her personal work.)I mean I agree with any criticisms of WotC on the subject but I'm just saying that using this card as an example is schizo shit.
Why do I always lose round 5 and go 2/3? i was playing rakdos and queued into a guy playing nothing but duresses and esika's chariots with a shaper's sanctuary. i've companied in a 31 creature deck in leagues and missed. what
>>88100693There's nothing to fix, he is the high kang of Arnor and Gondor
>>88100819It is a reference to the first boros guildmage cardI wish first ravnica sealed wasn't as clunck as it was.
>>88100904rakdos is the most popular deck according to goldfish so it makes sense that people would be playing random piles of cards that beat it missing coco hits is just bad variance + small sample size, 90% isn't 100%
Remember when Wizards juiced their own decks so they could charge 90 $ for them?Gee wiz, the brainiacs finally carcked the code to make even more money lads!
>>88100520U = B >= R > W = G
>>88101098Rev up those proxies
>>88100950is this one of those where is waldo kind of deals?
>>88101098juiced? how do you know what's in 'em?
>>88101213100 cards and 2 collectors boosters, soo 120 cards, maybe 10 tokens = 130 cards. Cost of printing a card = $ 0 . 08Cost of packaging = $ 1. 10Total cost to produce = $ 10 . 50Well, i guess it is cheaper than buying every single card in china man. But if you are not completely new to the game china man would be the best option money wise. (BTW imagine this being a entry point product...)
>>88101254btw the 0.08 is jumping a rope. Taking into account distributor prices we could say it is even lower the price per card...
>>88101254You're misreading the packaging, it doesn't come with two collector boosters. Commander decks come with a 2-card collector booster sampler which is basically just a random foil rare and a random non-foil rare from the set's collector boosters pool. The 10 tokens is a given for commander decks too, so it's the same amount of cards as the $40 precons before it. The only reason why the Commander Masters precons are getting a price increase is because two of them are paypig tribes (Eldrazi and Slivers) that need to come with expensive reprints in order to be viable decks out of the box.
>>88101387This is the company that put our an Izzet Phoenix Pioneer deck with two single copies of its namesake cards instead of a full playset.There will probably be only three reprints worth a damn and a bunch of bullshit, like those Changeling creatures.
>>88101427>>88101387Don't care about reprits, tell me what's new in the decks. A full deck of colourless stuff? It's going to break at least one format.
>>88101213>juiced?Wizards tend to put the good/valuable cards in the products that cost the most, I'll bet that these decks will have great cards in them since they somehow justify that "when the deck costs twice as much as a normal precon it is okay"
>>88101387>You're misreading the packaging, it doesn't come with two collector boosters. Commander decks come with a 2-card collector booster samplerMan, there is no part of me that doesn't believe they knew full well that a lot of customers would misread that.
>>88101516aren't the prices only high because retard speculators cannot stop pre-ordering them?
How am I intended to use pic related? My best guess was self mill to cheat big creatures out.
>>88101677>My best guess wasWhy do you think so? Is it because it returns a creature from graveyard to the battlefield?
>>88101677in what format?
>>88101538My local game store here in Denmark has them at 700 kr. pre-order, which is just around 90 $, so I don't think so
>>88101706My view of that card's uses is one dimensional but maybe there are clever synnergies with the -1/-1.>>88101753Not sure, I liked the flavor text and have 2x.
>>88101771most lgs' just follow the trends. at least here in north evey store sells at exorbitant markups
>Expressive Iteration banned in legacy>still legal in modernhow?
>>88101928>Izzet Delver has been popular for quite some time in Legacy, and it has picked up some notable recent additions, including Dragon's Rage Channeler, Murktide Regent, and Expressive Iteration. While we acknowledge and agree with the many Legacy players who enjoy the play patterns of Izzet Delver and similar archetypes, our data indicates a need to take the win rate and popularity of the deck down a notch to allow for more metagame diversity and innovation. Our choice is to ban Expressive Iteration, as the card quality and quantity it provides allows Izzet Delver to easily adapt to stay on top of any changes in the metagame.>As with the last update, Modern continues to be in a healthy spot, with plenty of different viable archetypes and a relatively flat spread among the top decks' metagame shares. Izzet Murktide is currently the most popular archetype in competitive play, but not by a large margin, and the deck isn't showing a concerning win rate. As of now, things are looking good, but as always, we'll keep our eyes on the Modern metagame as more high-level competitive play unfolds in the future.tl;dr is, according to their data (which we can't have access to, lmao) delver needed to take a hit in both win rate and popularity, so they banned EI because they were abusing it as a card selecton/card advantage spell, in modern, their data doesn't show any need to address murktide, which is the most popular deck abusing EI, therefore EI wasn't banned
>>88102074they need to ban murktide and ragavan
>>88102101not according to their data, they dont (lmaoooo)
>>88102074>Modern continues to be in a healthy spot>plenty of different viable archetypes>but as always, we'll keep our eyes on the Modern metagame>Modern has been in a healthy place>good diversity among archetypes >The Modern metagame continues to show great playstyle diversity>there looks to be plenty of room for less popular "rogue" decks to be successfulModern is healthyModern is diverseModern is in a good placeModern needs no changesBuy the monkeysBuy the sagasBuy the incarnations
>>88102246Modern is in a good spot right now if you actually play the format instead of complaining about MH2 cards
>>88102267How much did you pay for your monkeys?
>>88102246When they say "Modern is in a good place" they are obviously saying that "Modern Horizons Costructed is in a good place" and they are correct, all the Modern Horizons cards are seeing a healthy amount of play in Modern Horizons Constructed.
>he doesn't riffle shuffle his cards
If you're still paying WotC for magic cards you're a lost cause. You're 20 years too late.
>innistrad double feature cards are more expensive despite having no coloursexplain this one
>>88102566>he doesn't shuffle by throwing his cards on the ground and telling the opponent to pick them the fuck up
making black decks entirely because they have the coolest archetypes and artwork
>>88102613making black decks entirely because casting thoughtseize gives me sexual gratification
>be millenial>friends and I grown up during the LotR boom in early '00s>all of us play or used to play MtG>LotR x MtG crossover comes out>no one talks about itIf this crossover had happened when I was a teen, my friends and I would be all over it. We would talk about it for months. Now I look around and it's crickets. People from my former circle barely acknowledge the event. The age of the average MtG player is rising. When the investor rush is over, WotC is up for a rude awakening.
>playing anything but kitchentable legacyHow does it feel to be limited to 3 decks?
>>88102653basedlast week i went against against uw control and cast a total of 10 thoughtseizes + duress over the course of the 3 game match
>>88102674because everyone saw what they did to try and cause rage bait PR, and every person collectively sighed and gave up on the set.
>>88102674We did talk about it quite extensively. Then everyone got bored because there's nothing to actually talk about besides raceswap drama and how mediocre the cards previewed so far are
>>88102674My friend was a huge legolas fan and only got into mtg for the elfs. We don't talk anymore but I wonder what he thinks of the raceswaps.
>>88102701yes you seize thots when you cast it
>>88102677>playing anything but kitchen table
What's up with this format of mtg cards?
>>88102568I don't pay wotc. I pay my FLGS :^)
>>88102858*only in the US*only in english speaking territories of the USGood to know non-english speakers and non-US citizens can get fucked, thanks jewzards
>>88102837Future sight set, part of time spiral block. Someone made a booboo through time-space and it fucked shit up, as you can see by the border. Very flavorful
I want to make a mono-black zombie deck, but have no idea how to do so considering how many damn cards exist.
>>88102917why is Rohan Jeskie? wouldne't Bant or Mardue make more sense?
>>88102940I say pioneer, but really its casual kitchen
>>88102945>Jeskie Marduejeskai* Mardu*
>>88100693I never even saw the third movie. How do some of you guys care this much?You know everyone still thinks of Viggo Mortison when they hear someone mention Aragorn and always will, right?
>>88102917>Rohan>Not WRG>Elves>Not WUGWhat
>>88102994Wait I have flavor text for thisReplace Yawgmoths corpse with Black Aragorn
>>88102994Do you have no stories you care about, or are you incapable of sympathy?
>>88103023Hey man can you cool it with the racism por favor?
>>88102957https://scryfall.com/search?as=grid&order=name&q=type%3Azombie+color%3DB+%28game%3Apaper%29+legal%3Apioneer&unique=cardsLook through here and see what interests you. Pic related are some zombie staples.
>>88102994>I never even saw the third movie. How do some of you guys care this much?If you don't understand why people have a problem with this you're literally retarded. I can explain it to you but there's no point. If your brain can't come up with a scenario where people care about their mythology and literature you're too stupid to browse this board.
>hear about yawgmoth everywhere>cards like yawgmoths tomb make him out to be some insane demon>finally see him in a card>he's literally just some guywtf
>>88103048Aragorn is white though, can't be racist against blanco, amirite senior? :^)
>>88103060That's past Yawgmoth. See the giant face in the background here? That's what he becomes.
>>88103060That's him before he turned into a planar God. He was only human before his retreat to Phyrexia.
>>88102917How is that characters representative of Riders of Rohan in any way?
>>88103060That was while he was Thran and just friendly neighbourhood doctor. The whole phyrexia thing came later and he turned into some giant floating mist of machine horror.
>>88103093It's Eowyn in WotC's take lol.
>>88102994>Making Black Panther whte is RACIST! This fan artist needs to LITERALLY BE KILLED!!!!!>lol why do you care about black Aragorn?The constant gaslighting and doublespeak from you fucks is just nauseating at this point.
>>88103082Huh, wait, i just realised that art is Gerrard holding Urza's head inside the phyrexian arena. Guess that really is Yawgmoth, never figured he had a post phyrexia face.
>>88102858>order proxy from China>auction it online for $250k>invest it all in BTC>go to jail for a couple yearsIs it worth it?
>>88103060That's Yawg in the Thran empire, he escapes to another plane after its found out he is an eugenics Chad. He makes the plane into basically of version of hell from Dante's inferno. It's populated by metal monstrocities who wordship him as God. Then he cocoons himself in the core for 1000s of years till Urza and Mishra wake him up. At this point he's a Godlike entity.
>>88103107It might as well be Superman seeing how the character looks nothing like who it's apparently intended to be
>>88103151But anon think about the representation!
>>88103149The dream of all /m/en
>>88103130It doesn't really have a face afaik. The entire plane is an extension of his body and he can appear any way he wants. The arena is also part of him. The face is more of an artistic shortcut to help the viewer identify Yawg.
This must be Galadriel then
>>88103214Yes, we already saw black Galadriel.
>>88102917To me Eowyn looks more like this.
>>88103151The loop hole always is "well, tell us where did Tolkiend specified that she did not have dark skin"
>>88103214Will there be Japanese artist doing alt art to save the day?
Niggers are exhausting.
>>88103256They always do that because it's the easiest dishonest tactic. They ignore that a person's skin colour isn't stated when it's the standard one (white), but always stated when it's different from what's common for people of the region (like brown).
>>88103256I can virtually guarantee you there's a line somewhere in there where she's described as pale or ivory or some such.
>>88103305and they will go "well, but black people also go pale"
>>88102858>the big chase mythic is also being used as a Bundle promoAm I dyslexic or is this good
>>88103295Even if you give them proof they still go like "um who cares, the creator is dead, his characters can be anything, its not important"Then you remind them that Stan Lee is dead too so BP can be white and they lose their shit how it's different.You can keep going, prove them wrong on everything, it all runs off them like water off a raincoat.So the solution is simple, correct them by force.
>>88103060>>88103082Also, Yawgmoth is in the sky in pic rel
>>88103256Tolkien didn't specify if there was tony stark or nukes in middle earth either.For all we know tony stark could be in hiding just like the kappas on kamigawa.Sauron maybe got a nuke or two but he just didn't feel like using them.
Can't argue with people who don't care about the truth. They always move the goalpost or ridicule you for caring about anything.
Who would be good for blue tribal?
>>88103444Wotc CEO here, you're hired as a writer.
>>88103461spirits, faeries, humans, etc
>>88103455Just post the fix and ignore them
>adore the oceans>love the island artwork>don't like blue gameplaya complex feel
>>88103305Galadriel: "She was tall and fair beyond measure; she was robed wholly in white, and her hair was laid in cool waves, parted on her forehead, and falling down upon her shoulders." (The Fellowship of the Ring, Book II, Chapter 7)Éowyn: "She was tall and fair, with a slender waist and a straight back like a young tree that is yet unbent. Her dark hair, deep-crowned, was loose and fell in long tresses upon her shoulders; her eyes were grey as the sea, grey as the evening mist." (The Two Towers, Book III, Chapter 2)
>fair beyond measureclearly this line meant she was so white she was actually blackthink about it
>>88103507"Even as he spoke, they saw, as if she came in answer to their words, the Lady Galadriel approaching. Tall and white and fair she walked beneath the trees."
What other characters do you think will be blacked when the full spoilers come out?
>>88103507Black people can be fair too
>>88103507Wotc: "Sounds dark skinned"
>>88100693Thats an Aragorn you can set your watch to
>>88103507W-well, fair can just mean pretty, not necessarily pale-skinned!>proceeds to draw her ugly anyway
>>88100520Imagine actually buying this garbage.
Why is Commander so popular?
>>88103600Most variety in deck typesThe powerlevel is as high as your group wants it to be
>>88103600It's not competative. It's "expressive". I mean even the rules tell you not to win too much.
>>88103600i would guess in a way, it allows for more diverse matches because you are not just playing 4 copies of everything.
>>88103621well shit that does sound like why I like magicbut commanderfags seem to be women and casuals
>>88103600Any shitpile you make will work since there's 3 other players to pick up the slack.
>>88102994>Why do you care about European culture being subverted?>Now shut up and buy our slop, goy.
arenafag here, i need rules explanationif I block phyrexian obliterator with this guy, how do triggers resolvewhich one resolves first, and if I turn obliterator into mass, does the sacrifice permanents resolve, since it's a different permanent now
>>88103636If it was 4 per no commanders, I'd be interested but 1 game apparently takes hours.
Foil more like fail
>>88103659Both effects trigger. Non active player's resolves first, but that doesn't really matter.
>>88103659Give it first strike and obliterator's effect wont go off. Otherwise it goes off at the same time.
>>88103706Why would first strike change anything lol?
Hate myself and want to die lads
>>88103660>1 game apparently takes hours.The higher the power level the faster the games
>>88103716Because first strike deals damage before regular damage is applied
>>88102994>Viggo MortisonYou're the same guy who keeps calling Terese Nielsen Nielson, right?>How do some of you guys care this much?Who cares about the movies. Tolkien is a modern classic. That is as stupid as asking someone "why do you care about Beethoven?".
>>88103738And why would that change anything?
>>88103214Powerful, stunning and brave.
>>88103757Obliteraror deals damage as a copy. Wait remind me doesObliterator have deal or dealt written? If it's dealt then there's no way around it.
>>88103797You could read the card and find out
>>88103214I couldn't help but notice that there's something different about her.
>>88103819It's your imagination.
>>88103811>readPff, no one does that anymoreOh yeah I remembered it wrong, my bad, guy is fucked
How much of a meme is 40 Relentess Rats and 20 Swamps?

>>88102837Time spiral block was a parallel universes and time travel set. It had the modern border (8th forward) but some cards with the set had different borders to match their gimmick.Time spiral - Timeshifted cards : was a separated slot in boosters (and some would appear in theme decks) that were reprints of older cards in the older border but with the timeshifted expansion symbol.Planar Chaos - Color shifted cards : Cards within the main set that were basically reprints of older cards but in another color and name (same effect, type, "mana cost"(just with other colored mana symbols))Future Sight - Future shifted cards : Cards with a "new" border (Future border)(one interesting thing is the symbol on top left - there were one for each card type). The ultimate gimmick here was that wotc said that those cards would eventually be reprinted in new sets. (from what i remember it was originally standard set reprints, but now they just reprint them into supplemental sets)
>>88100520You battered housewives still playing this game are what allows them to do stuff like this, you know.
Rats cost $7 per fucking card, so that's outI just want a cool mono black deck that's decently cheap and fun, what do
>>88104132some hard questions like "why am I still buying crap from this company?"
>>88102994What's wrong with not wanting (((them))) to drag crucial parts of western culture in the dirt and respect source material, cuck?
>>88102896>>88103049I abuse Carrion Feeder and Gravecrawler in my zombie deck
>>88104141I was going to joke that you should just use Rat Colony instead, but those are $4 each for some fucking reason.
>>88103214WE WUZ NOLDOR N SHIET>>88103244justice geddes made sure that all the new depictions are book acurate, soo it is ok>>88103507See, perfectly canon>>88103600people like to play with avatars but are too retarded to never have been told about vanguard or trying other games.
>>88104195If you're not going with Pioneer, then yeah, Gravecrawler and Carrion Feeder are zombie staples as well. Undead Augur is a strong contender too.
>>88104141$1 with china man.
>>88104132Allows them to do what? To flatter the ideologies of their paying customers? You don't play games, you just get mad about them, that's why your opinion doesn't matter.
>>88104286>To flatter the ideologies of their paying customers?Their paying customers don't have ideologies beyond buying product. They don't give a shit if Aragorn is black or white or a tranny, so long as he's on a Magic card. The people flattered by this are no different than us: a bunch of jackasses on the internet who hate this game.
>>88104323Most nerds lean liberal. Most people smart enough to play Magic lean liberal. I don't know what you hope to gain by pretending otherwise.
When will magic Die?
>>88104286>You don't play gamesWhere do you get that from, re ddit? I've played from the splinter twin days up to a year ago. >allow them do what?If you really can't see that, you're very low iq.
>>88104366Magic died when WotC released the first sealed Commander products
>>88104376maybe I should say:when will people stop buying magic enough that it's unprofitable and hasbro is forced to pull the plug on new magic product?
>>88104355>liberalThere's literaly nothing liberal about american "liberals." You have nothing in common with actual, classical liberals. You're just generic, freedom-hating leftists. >us smartStudies tend to show that even among whites, rightwingers have higher iq than leftists. According to similar studies, we're also fitter, saner, prettier, richer, have more test, etc.
>>88104380when some how hasbro goes bankrupt. and they sell the brand to konami so they just shut it down
>>88104355>by pretending otherwiseThe irony of this. You really are drunk on marxism, aren't you?
>>88104355You're hopelessly naive if you think "lean liberal" means cheering on every race swap. Even the ledditors roll their eyes at it these days. They do this for the express purpose of generating controversy (read: free advertising).
>>88104132I only play pauper and I've spent a total of 25 bucks on singles last year. I know it's not ideal but as soon as one of the alt-tcgs I like catches on around here I'm gone.
>>88104380When economic crisis hits and even rudy says that buying magic is a trap. If another game rises it may also do the trick (if whales chase it down)(lorcana might do it).

>>88104998yes, is called "the Weatherlight"
>>88105004yeah if i were down six figures investing in funko pops i would tell people to buy hasbro too
>>88105004Rudy also pumped baldur's gate for weeks before realizing it was absolute garbage.
>>88105055Wtf I didn't even know a Bauldurs gate set released.
>>88105055I mean, Lotr IP is a lot bigger than Baldur gays.So a bunch of people will jump in and buy into it, even with all the blackening of everybody.
>>88104462>Magic will never dieDamn, I wouldn't even say that about chess. Magic as a whole has only been around for 30 years and current magic for about 5 (with UB only 3), that's not even close to standing the test of time.
jesus the Thought Scour art is a bit fucked
the neon dynasty cards be bussin fr fr
How tf did JOTC got their hand on the LOTR IP anyway ? Wasn't the Tolkien estate like super autistic about what could be made with their brand ?
>>88105399Chris died, the current ones hate JRR and Chris for being bigger names than they ever will be. So milking it all for money it is.
>>88101538Yes. Edh paypigs are running everything.>>88101771As other anon said LGS will follow what the online retailers do, usually, not as a rule but that tends to be how it happens. Otherwise they just become a middleman for scalpers. Maybe Europe isn't as faggy as NA though
>visit the edh reddit>see a thread>"um well a guy boardwiped then scooped and it was hecking toxic so we just ignored the card resolving :)"what the FUCK is wrong with edhfags?
>>88102568I mostly buy old cards from my LGS so I'm happy with it. All my decks suck but I still have fun. Sometimes I splurge a bit, got a walking ballista today for 12 CAD which was nice. No real use for it currently but maybe I'll throw it into one of my edh decks
>>88105468:-| if they mean he literally just boardwiped and then after it resolved scooped and left ya I'd say we could all ignore it. That sounds like a big time faggot move. I wouldn't call it toxic though just gay, perhaps even unbased
yikes my guy that bolt was very toxic so to me it didn't happenthat counterspell was very problematic as such it did not happenuh you played a card that says "destroy black creatures"? that's so many levels of fucking toxic I can't even

Can any legendary creature be my commander, or does it have to say on the card "this creature can be your commander"?
>>88105739Go to bed, Connor. Also, >>88101063.
how come there's no Negan from tekken card
>>88103659I got this as my EMN prerelease promo and I have not gone to prerelease since.
I can see a lot of new players paying 20$ for the starter kits but who the fuck is gonna be paying the premium pricetag for the lotr boxes, especially when commander masters will be releasing within roughly the same timeframe
>>88105929>LotR superfans that otherwise don't care about Magic.
>>88106081Yea, I'm sure those superfans love the mutilation of their beloved lore.
should i wait for lotr to come out before i buy a whole ass karnza deck
>go to LGS for game night, enjoy playing burn in modern >person sitting next to me had a date stamped Alesha that is miscut to all hell, can barely make out another card in the top and bottom left corners>Tell them that it’s a nice card >”Thanks, it’s nice to know there is another trans ally at the store!”>immediately ignore and remember that I was sitting opposite of a commander tableI thought that Alesha was a dude who just took his Grammy’s name after passing a clan test as a sign of respect, but apparently that makes him a tranny? Even the wiki claims he is but only gives non-WOTC sites as sources and even then they link to a dead MTG website, so what gives? Has WOTC actually given a passing glance to lore recently and outright stated that, are they ignoring it by playing the foreign market knowing that gay shit doesn’t sell I.E. Chandra and Nissa “totally being lesbians”, or WOTC just dumb enough not to care about lore? At this point if WOTC actually said in the past “yeah, it’s a tranny” I wouldn’t be surprised, or is this another attempt at turning anything feminine and male-adjacent a tranny for self validation?
>>88106263This didn't happen
>>88106263nobody has ever looked like this or said this or done this though
>>88106298>>88106291You clearly never had the misfortune of speaking to a tranny
>>88106263Why do you think she got a card in the pride Secret Lair, anon?No, taking her grandmother's name doesn't make her trans. She was trans first, then took the name.This is also INCREDIBLY old news.
>>88106313your chances of seeing a acker in real life is as slim as being struck by lightning much less talking to one
>>88106338Okay, great- is there a WOTC originated article discussing said claim or is this just a claim and nothing else? Already stipulated I don’t care if Alesha is actually a tranny, but at least I want hard proof of it and not “you don’t need proof, just accept it”.
>>88106351The chance is actually really high because they make sure you know. You're just lucky to live in an area without them.
>>88106357the noise they make when they meet their inevitable fate
>>88106263you're so obsessed with trans people that you feel compelled to make up stories about interacting with them and you think they're the freaks? come on anon.
>>88106367there was, but it got 404's when Wizards fucked over their archives.
>>88106371if they have to tell you for you to know thats not even a tranny its just a nigga in a wig aka twitter user

>>88106390Seems a little convenient, but what is stopping people from claiming the opposite since there is no original source that is accessible anymore?
>>88106433Have you talked to your therapist about your paranoid fantasies, anon?Also, look: >>88106429
>>88106437Don’t have one, perhaps you can recommend one of your own? I came in asking for a genuine response and was met with shit flinging I expect from commander players. After reading that story, if that is all you need to label someone as a trans that’s great. Now I understand why Twitter got assblasted abut Yamoto
>>88106455>if that is all you need to label someone as a trans that’s greatLiterally the whole point of that story is to say "This character is trans". You're SUPPOSED to know she's trans after reading it. That was the goal. That was the specific intended outcome.who the fuck is yamoto
>>88106417i wish i was 13 and not just an immature drunkard

Once you release the limiters on allowing proxies, what's stopping a group from just proxying the most insane powerful cards in the format? Or is that entirely the point?
>>88107119don't you already do that? The difference is just how much you pay for those most powerful cards.
>>88107134I've never used proxies in my life. I only play casual with friends and our system is we only use what we can afford, with a gentleman's agreement not to cuck each other with absurd expensive cards.
>>88107142So what is the issue?
>>88107149For them, no charge
>>88107119My Pauper group started by allowing people to use proxies. After about 6-8 weeks people got bored with top meta decks, found their favourite archetypes and started to buy into those decks with no proxies. It really helps when your favourite format requires you to drop $50 on a deck at worst - most people seem to be fine with this when it comes to their beloved petdecks.
>retro frame goblin guide>less than a buck>all other printings are 4 dollars minimum is this printing illegal to use or something
>>88107272Well, from a tournament perspective, this one only comes in foil, so you can only use it if all your other cards are foil.
>>88107284All the copies of goblin guide specifically or every card in my deck
>>88107299every card in the deck. Foiling causes curles, which can let you cheat and know where the foiled cards are.That's why when Kess was only available in foil, what they'd do on official tournaments, they'd give you a basic land and scribble "Kess" on it, to use in your deck. By official, I mean big tournaments, no one cares at your LGS usually.
>>88107272>is this printing illegal to use or somethingIt was a promo. Just last week I got two copies just for attending a FNM.
>>88100950this is Magic now...? never buying it again. vote with your wallet people.they keep raceswapping whites to black as if it's not extremely hurtful to black people to again and again be told that they don't deserve original characters. they're basically telling us that they can't risk inventing a new black character because they think he won't gain popularity. gotta piggyback on existing characters.
All I want to see for the future of magic is:the fall of new phyrexiawrenn merges with the realmbreaker making wrenn and realmbreakerphyrexians scour and garruk hunts them (can include the kenriths or whatever for a pseudo kingsman storyline arc)a new faction of phyrexians emerges from the phyrexia of old (where they worship yawgmoth and pray for his return as a sign of their salvation, blaming the praetors of new phyrexia for it's failure)oil didn't compleat you. phyrexia wasn't some viral contagion. compleation was the gradual removal of organic matter and replacing it with inorganic matter. basically turning people into cyborgs and then terminators.the oil is remnants of yawgmoth's mana, much like his tomb exudes black mana turning the land into swamps.
I want to get back into magic. Is going to a phyrexia draft a good idea to get back on track?
>>88105497holy- it makes sense now
Have they told yet what "ring tempts you" means as a game mechanic?
>>88107321okay thanks, I don’t give a shit then, nobody at my lgs has ever said anything and they’re guilty of having one or two off foils of certain cards anyway
>>88107351>i want to get back into magic>is playing magic a good way to get back into itah duh
>>88107351No draft is never a good way to get into MtG unless you want to spend a shitton of money on cards that won't even buy you a competitive deck. If you want to play constructed MtG you should either buy yourself a Challenger deck for Pioneer OR a cheap Standard deck like Mono-U Tempo OR a Pauper deck.In case you want to play EDH then you should check the other thread >>88101063.
>>88104132Nope. Stopped when Dom remastered charged 180 fucking dollars for a draft box.
>>88107345this, and SHeoldred to go on a date with me.
>>88107351You shold go to your LGS and first see wtf is even played over there.
I only want infect back and for elon to buy wotc
>>88107396are you an idiot?the entire point of magic the gathering is the magic that stems from a group of people gathering. it isn't about having your jeweled lotus or force of will or some bullshit. it's about getting together with some people to spend a few hours together. some people are more socialable, and some are on the spectrum, but we can all come together for an evening to draft. 15$~ is a much cheaper entry fee for an evening draft than any of the options you mentioned. so many people jerk themselves off like magic is an investment. sure, maybe if you're a dick hoarding bazaar's so people can't play dredge or whatever. the whole point of magic is the gathering. the allure of the local game store. the smell of cardboard mixed with b-o.
>>88107455Why does all new WotC art look like bad low polly CG?
Come si dice…What I want... What's most important to me... ...is that I have a guarantee. No more attempts on my Sheoldred’s life

No it's not. I bought my Pioneer precon for $40 and played it with next to no upgrades every single week for like three months for free before buying any +$1 cards. My Pauper deck costs $25 and got no +$1 upgrades for over 2 years now except for new fancy basic lands.On the other hand you can spend $45 on three drafts and end up with a pile of useless cards once WotC releases a new set so you will have to spend $15 multiple times again.>so many people jerk themselves off like magic is an investment. sure, maybe if you're a dick hoarding bazaar's so people can't play dredge or whatever. the whole point of magic is the gathering. the allure of the local game store. the smell of cardboard mixed with b-o.Blah blah blah pee pee poo poo.
>>88103504What gameplay do you like?
Do you ever just find yourself thinking "man, why is everything so gay now?"
>>88104998Because old mtg got the mix of tech and fantasy just right. The newer sets, even when set in Dominaria, don't seem to be able to depict it in the same way. I can't put my finger in it, but they either look too futuristic or too much like magical wooden toys. Someone who knows more about fantasy art might be able to explain better.
>>88108362It's because in old MTG. magic was a glue. Things were designed with the idea that magic could overcome limitations in engineering. Things weren't futuristic even though people had access to magic, it's like "what if things were designed around a different power source, a different philosophy?" So rather than our real planes that generate lift through the force of massive turbines that spin with gas, what if you had a ship that sailed on magic winds? This was even reflected in the lore, with all this shit starting because the Thran were fucking with an energy source their whole society revolved around but they didn't understand.Nu-Magic (and western fantasy in general0 doesn't care about thinking, questions, ramifications, or complexity. They just think "AW YEAH WITH MAGIC U CAN DO ANYTHING" and just make robots with iPod aesthetics.
>>88108225I know why it's so gay, I'm left wondering "How did it get so bad?"
>>88108416I know why it got so bad, I'm wondering why did we allow it.
>>88108420Because nerds just want more people to play with and are willing to give people the benefit of the doubt. Parasites sense this weakness, crawl in, and within 10 years everything is faggy as fuck.You can see it everywhere.
>>88102074>As with the last update, Modern continues to be in a healthy spot, with plenty of different viable archetypesEvery deck in M*dern will contain at least one of the following cards:MonkeExcrementalsUrza's SagaRen & 6timpyThere's your "healthy format" bro, M*dern is without a doubt the single most homogenized format in mtg.
>>88108432Every time I see some "new brew" "rogue deck" "anti-meta" etc. shit and it's got Saga, Ragavan, elementals, Omnig, whatever, I yawn. This format is fucking done. It's actually worse than Legacy because not all decks need FoW to be competitive but in Modern you NEED MH staples or you have already lost.
>>88102917>No man can kill me>I AINT NO MUFAGGIN MAN YA PALE ASS CRACKA>I wish you were
>>88108447people at my LGS will swear by god that Modern is actually good and diverse now, 50% of the play Murktide shit, the others play elemental free stuff shit. Your format is broken if Snapcaster is too weak for it.
