>>230794693

A 3/3 double striker for 5 cmc barely makes weight without the handicap. They're okay in limited with 2-3 gates, but gates are late pick and this guy is never pick if you don't already know you're good for gates. The only format he really works in is sealed.

Reposting cuz ded thread.
Not bad, but I think you oughtta just cut out all the red cards at this point. Sabotage, Muse Drake, Barrier, and Notion Rain are all good (especially Rain and Sabotage, you shouldn't be cutting those most of the time). Also cut Vapors, since it's super narrow and is a dead card in hand most of the time, and Radical Idea, since we won't be having many instant/sorcery synergies apart from Mystic.

Vapors just carried me to 4 wins. Had no chance here if I didn't have it.
>>
>>230795041
Also I have a question. If I use packs favor with convoke before damage phase does the creature still block and also get buffed by packs favor? Or will packs favor tap it and then it can't block anymore?
>>
>>230795041
It's not a terrible constructed card, but it's a silver bullet which really sucks in BO1 limited. It doesn't do anything but Surveil 2 for 2B against non-weenie decks and the high chance of it being a dead draw means it isn't worth running, at least not before sideboarding.

Sure, it saved your ass this game, but when you topdeck it against a board of fatties it's going to feel really bad.

Yeah, that makes sense, I went in planning on going for Dimir with a splash of red, and got a couple Izzet Guildgates very early on but never ended up getting any impressive red cards.

Thanks for the help anon, I feel fairly good about this deck for a first ever draft. Was kind of hoping for at least 1 Dream Eater but I got a couple of uncommons and commons that I was looking for

I was pretty excited when I got Murmiring Mystic so I hope I can get a bit of value from it without Radical Idea
>>
>>230795161
You can assign a creature as a blocker, THEN tap it to pay a Convoke cost. The attacking creature will still be blocked in that case. If you tap it to pay the Convoke cost first before blockers are declared, then you're hosed.
>>
>>230795331
A Dimir draft lives and dies on it's un/commons. Don't sweat not having a specific rare.

Also, add two more lands, maybe even three. Your curve is very 3-drop heavy so I'd look to cut something there, and then maybe shave a Drake off too.

Why does no one play this? It's a 3-4 mana 6/6 that ramps
>>
>>230795641
I initially only put 2 of my 3 Notion rains in, do you think cutting one of them is worth it alongside the Drake, or would something like Quasiduplicate or Sabotage be better?

Notion Rain seems extremely powerful if I can get an early Phantasm or Spybug but I also really like the idea of duplicating a decently sized Spybug/Phantasm/Sphinx or possibly a Mystic to close games.
>>
reminder that RG players are basic bitches that always play the same 3 fucking cards
>>
>>230795704
There are usually better things you could be playing than a vanilla 6/6 that ramps you on turn fiveish. You don't really need ramp at that point, and it just gets outclassed by other top-end cards like Izoni and Doom Whisperer.
>>
>>230795041
And then lost to another U/B deck that was insane. Literally turn two thought erasure, turn three disinformation campaign turn four etrata no idea what they were doing at 4wins 2losses with that deck. That's 4 UB decks in a row once I hit 3 wins.

Oh well rolled the bonus pack anyway.

>>
>>230796251
What City's Blessing card are you talking about? AFAIK only Golden Demise is really played much and most of the decks running it don't care at all about it being symmetrical without the City's Blessing. Past that I guess Snubhorn Sentry is sometimes played in token decks but that's hardly unbeatable given that it folds to most boardwipes and removal.

The problem is that I know exactly how to improve my current deck and make it Bo3 viable so I can do those events. But I am getting a little bored of it even if I still enjoy it. I think I will stick with it instead of making the other deck since it needs like 12 rares and 6 mythics I don't have.

just play Healer's Hawk instead of Ajani's Welcome, not developing a 1-drop on turn 1 is a death sentence for any aggro deck

Not too bad for a budget. Obviously Resplendent Angels and Lyras would be better than Ajani's Welcome, but hey.

>>230796902
Radiant Destiny is played literally nowhere except some jank Boros goblins decks, as there are better ways to buff your dudes. Tendershoot Dryad folds to literally any removal on top of costing five mana. These are not hard cards to play around, nor are they good cards outside of an uninteractive starter deck meta.

I've read nothing positive about WoTC,

I've read they haven't fixed the uninstaller deleting root folders and instead just removed the ability to choose your install location as a bandaid fix.

I've read that they write huge log files to a dump folder every time you play which you can't disable and have to manually delete.

I've read that the game is very unfriendly to F2P players because they still treat the game like a physical card system where you would normally have to buy every single card you own and that it takes a very long time to get enough dust/wildcards to make a single custom deck.

I've read that there is an increasing number of people who troll you with long wait times between each action by letting every timer run out if they think they are losing in an attempt to make you disconnect and wotc aren't going to put in a maximum turn time because of the infinite loop systems in the game.

The game looks great and i'm sure the average experience is a fun one but is it even worth playing right now with all the bugs they deliberately won't fix and will it even be worth playing when the game is fully released given how wotc operates?

epic simply epic.

Ah well I'm 4-1 atm. Every win has been super close though. Coulda easily been 2-3 or something.

Has anyone ever done the maths on how much a single card can affect a deck winrate for limited? Can't imagine it being that much over 60-65% right? Since even if it said "cast this and u win" you have to draw it and have the mana right.

Shit, I completely glossed over that. I think both are fine picks. If you have motivation to raredraft Steam-Kin for your collection, I'd say go for it over Truefire since it's definitely playable in your draft deck anyways. Otherwise the knight is probably better.

Well thanks for the help drafting anon, I ended up going 1-3. The first deck he had the 2 mana 2/1 "First strike on your turn" card and buffed it to 4/3 and my only creatures were 3/2s and 5/4s so he just killed me.

Second game I lost to a super goofy, lucky deck where the guy had Goblin Locksmith which prevented my creatures with defender from blocking (I had 2 4/4 Phantasms and a Barrier so he just smacked me down) and my third loss I just simply went 9 turns without drawing a single swamp when the majority of my cards needed 1 black to play.

I don't think I played horribly, all things considered, just a few small misplays and some pretty horrible draws. Getting land fucked happens but it's a shame it happened so badly in my first draft :> At least I got some experience from it.

If I had gotten even a single land in the early game I was on track to get a Spybug with 4/4 on it, and a 5/5 phantasm and I could have just outright killed him on turn 5 effortlessly.

Yawg's Will is (still) broken due to interactions with Lion's Eye Diamond (and Black Lotus, and Rituals). Unfortunately Mnemonic Betrayal solely relies on your opponent playing good cards for you, so it's nowhere near as good since it isn't consistent.

Yeah, I always like playing against golgari because I have no idea what their deck is doing until it's too late or I've had a laff. With Dimir, I just wonder if they're going to go full control/discard shithead, esper teferi 'you had all that money to whale and this is what you came up with' shithead, or doomwhisper/dream eater/spybug 'at least it's not full control, but you're still a bad person' funboi.

How do I improve my meme?
I know my sideboard is a mess, I can't decide which cards I want so it's a bunch of 1ofs. And obviously I need more rare lands, but I'm working on it. I'm not sure about the 0 basic forests either, I should probably be running one or two until I get more green duals, but I'm experimenting and it seems to be working okay right now.

And yeah, I should probably be playing WU or Esper or USA if I want to play this archetype, but BUG is my favourite colour combination so I want to make it work. The tools are there, I think.

>>230803020
Because it's really fucking good and really easy to make a viable draft deck out of. Surveil, card advantage, hand disruption are all good effects bundled together so you only need to draft a couple of bombs to win.
Comparatively golgari is all about synergies and is a bad draft combo unless you get a couple of really good bombs.
Selesnya can be good because it has a ton of value, but that's really all it has in draft.

Hello friends! <3
I installed this game yesterday and it was so fun~! I love the green intro deck!

I've also played with physical cards for a while but I enjoy silly noob decks still.

How are you doing? Is this general noob friendly...? Any tips for begginners?
Have a nice day!

Do you guys think Boros Angels is Tier 1 right now/will be in the future? I finally got 10 mythic WCs to craft everything, should I do it?
>>
>>230805660
Severed strands is okay if you can grab enough rats / strays.
Your draft is going pretty well, so I'd propably pick up a rat right now to slow the game down.
Erstwhile Trooper is dogshit and strands is something you can pick up later anyway.

Bats is also decent but you need some 2 drops right now.

Took the rat. Now deciding between a 3 cost convoke instant for a 3/3 buff or a 3 cost black 3/2 creature that gives +1/1 to target on death. The creature sounds like better value right?
>>
>>230805856
Thanks for the reply!
How do I unlock the decks...? Is it that "you get a new deck-mission in X hours"? Actually it should be ready by now...!

Also what exactly is "crafting"...? Building my own deck? Sorry I'm dumb!
>>
>>230805756

>trooper is dogshit

Not total dogshit. It turns hand boogins into 0 cmc combat tricks meaning you at least have a bluff to swing into stronger creatures. That's not really something you'd care much about as golgari, and a 3 cmc 2/2 in green is shit, but it's a card you might still main deck if you pick it late in a pack.
>>
>>230806116
Crafting refers to using the "wildcards" you obtain through packs to create cards. You want to wait until you have all of the cards the game gives to you through preconstructed decks before you use them. Have fun unlocking them!

>constructed
Uses cards from your collectiom
>standard
A rotating constructed format. Literally all the cards available in MTGA right now are standard legal, so this is interchangeable with constructed at the moment (unless they run singleton or pauper)
>limited
You create a deck using cards from unopened packs. The only formats in mtga are draft and sealed
>sealed
You get five packs and create a deck with the cards in them, plus basic lands. Generally the lowest power format.
>draft
You open a pack, choose a card out of it, and pass to your neighbor (in mtga, it's an ai) and receive a pack from your other neigbor after he picked one. Continue picking and passing until the packs are out of cards. This is done for 3 packs per person. Make a deck with the cards you picked.

yea there's too many 4s. Cut the bat. I like the Ceratoks. Lurcher maybe? Not much experience with that card personally. Idk how good it is.

You just want your mana distribution for creatures/things u play on board to be like a normal distrubution. There's some theorycraft in mtg called stock mana theory and it's like whoever has the least mana unspent in a game typically wins.

So just drop ur stuff over using removal if it floats mana etc., Stick to that and you'll be fine. Just play you'll learn. It's better to ask before but it's you understand more through experience imo.

I finally saved enough geld for the draft. I need some tips and tricks. I assume I will be drafting lands too, how easy is to not get enough of them, for an utter shittler like me?

Also mana, is it better to go for mono, or mix and match?
>>
>>230810350
So I'll need to save up a ton of rare wildcards for this then, and the only way to get those are through boosters?
>>
>>230810962
you dont need to draft lands
>>
>>230809620
if you're playing it you shouldn't play a playset, instead run forerunner of the empire which both tutors for it and enables the combo
>>
>>230810752

The better you are the more you can do. It's not a very beginner-friendly system, but even at its worst where you go 0-3 every time it's closer to one per week at least.

If you get at least 3-4 wins on average then you can do them pretty steadily by alternating between paying with gold and paying with gems.

you will almost never get enough cards for only 1 color and there are tons of dual color cards in Ravnica anyways, you might even need to go 3 colors

Depends on what exactly you're building and if you can get more common substitutes, but generally you'll need to focus your wildcards on one deck for a while and won't be able to branch out much if you're f2p.

Go for their win condition, not their control cards.

They will always have more control cards, but they tend to be light on ways to actually win. I started playing right after Return to Ravnica and I have many fond memories of beating what was probably the most cancerous control deck to ever grace Standard just by casting this bad boy.

Hey guys I'm too retarded to understand where I should be spending my gold and gems. I'm new, don't even have all of the dual color starter decks yet (but almost).

My magic experience is very limited to say the least (played a tiny bit of paper 15+ years ago).

What should I do with my resources to effectively fill my collection? If it matters, I eventually would like to play either a cool dimir deck, or maybe a rat one (sounds super fun and memey) or dinosaurs because I like dinosaurs.
Thank you.

Hey guys, fresh player here.

What packs are "safe to buy", meaning that have cards that will last a long time?
Can I just focus on one set and craft stuff from other ones with wildcards?
I'm a bit afrait of doing draft, what's this about?

No, you're wrong. See, in Hearthstone and Elder Scrolls Legends, you get 1 mana a turn automatically so each opponent is more on even footing. In Magic, the fact that you may or may not be starved or flooded with mana means that there is more skill in such a system because.......uh...

Better to get good at limited on Arena than in paper, since the stakes are relatively lower.

>>230833302
If you're an aggro deck, you can put in fewer lands to increase your chances of drawing more spells than an opponent with a higher curve, at the risk of fizzling out because they're less powerful in the late game. Lands can also have non-mana abilities.

But you were complaining about Merfolk and vamp token spam, which those options solve. Now you've moved the goalposts and probably won't stop until we suggest a card that destroys all lands, creatures, and life total an opponent has for 1 mana.

>>230832347
*whirls your chain*

>>230833621
What was your average spell cost and what was your highest creature cost? Keep in mind that MtG's glorious system means that there's a possibility that even if you make a draft deck with 33 lands and 7 playable cards, you could conceivably mull down to 0 without ever seeing a land. Variance is just part of this shit, all people do is attempt to statistically maximize their chances of having a useful hand.

that's honestly a negative of the mana system though. Look at eternal formats there's nearly no cards hardcasted for 4 or more and the majority of cards played cost 1. The fact that not only do more expensive cards not make an impact until later into the game but also mean you have less cards that actually do things in your deck is not a disadvantage higher CMC cards need.
>>
>>230834013
Mostly 1 and 3 spells, kinda low 2's, some 4 and 5, with the highest being the 8 mana convoke white flyer.

Have damage over time cards ever been attempted in Magic? Like weakening enemies 1hp a round for a certain number of rounds or doing the same to the opponent? Seems like it could force attacks from stalemates if the clock is ticking until the units die.

There's a mechanic called poison, but it has nothing to do with what you just described. There are a huge number of abilities that trigger damage at least once a turn, but nothing that is based on previous attacks. The way this game works, you'd have to give them an emblem with damage per turn, which is just clunky and silly.

your giant damages the enemy when it enters the battlefield. Your opponent sent your giant back from the battlefield to your hand. It still entered the battlefield before getting sent back.
>>
>>230836891
you played it
it hit the field
its effect went on the stack
then he bounced it back to your hand before the effect resolved
giant effect then resolved and dealt damage

>>230836891
bounce and counterspell are two different things.
>>
>>230837078
Is there no way to intercept a creature the moment it is "in the air" inbetween the player's hand and the battlefield, to stop it from ever entering the battlefield to begin with?
>>
>>230836891

Disperse is not a counterspell is why.
>>
>>230836891

First off, he didn't counter it (unless you mean that in the colloquial sense rather than the mtg game mechanic).

Second, the ability went on the stack as soon as it entered play. Your card doesn't need to stay in play for its ability to resolve.
>>
>>230837246
yes, a counterspell
>>
>>230836754
>lyra
fuck i don't have any of her
>>
>>230837246
also the official name of "in the air" is the stack.
>>
>>230836891
Disperse isn't a counter, counters target spells in the stack before they senter the battlefield. Disperse send things from the battlefield to their oener's hand. So, for Disperse to work the giant should enter the battlefield first, which triggers its ability and put it on the stack, in mtg once an ability is triggered it exists in the stack even if the source doesn't exists anymore, so even without the giant the ability still resolves itself.

Yes, it's called a counterspell. Essence scatter is an example.

Ur deck is just stuff lol. Good to have some tricks when ur just turning dudes sideways plan. Might of the masses is really good imo.

He said competitive, not the best precon based on simple synergies.

But U/G madness!? I mean I can't even right now.

Has ravnica gone on so fucking long that people don't even talk about colors and instead talk about these faggy guilds? Jesus fuck i;m starting to hate this game with all this guild autism. My god we have to get what another 2 fucking ravnica sets before maybe they move on to something cool?

*first ledev is guardian
oh i just saw u have stray. Personally not a fan of that in the beatdown plan either.

>>230838419
are you joking? UG practically refined Merfolk AND the hexproof mechanic. Slippery Bogle + any enchantment was game ending

would this also disable the journey to eternity?

madness was FUN
odyssey block was so good

the only thing green brought to merfolk was +1/+1 counters.

Return to Return to Ravnica was lame fer shure (and keeps getting my hopes up that Simic will get actual support), but the original ravnica is more than a decade old, and the first time they did color combos as a set theme. As far as I can tell though, naming color combos after set themes didn't really take off until Alara, and didn't really turn into trash cancer until khans.

That seems way stronger than Unmoored tho. Just saying (also I'd still axe Teferi 1st, the fucker is the reason why their shitty deck is able to play Counters no matter what point in the game)

Playing HS is what did it for me. You buy $20 of packs and don't even get enough dust for one legend. It was a fucking joke. I'm still so mad at it I never spend real money on microtransaction
