    Card/Deck Low Power Card Spotlight

    I think you need to care about artifacts, prowess, or graveyard (delirium, delve) for these to matter, or have decks of a size such that being a card thinner can matter (20 card mirco-cubes, for example). Otherwise these are just air, and worse, could signal to drafters that such things are...

    I'm building a deck for a Jumpstart style environment. It's around retail limited power level (DMU). This particular deck is aiming to build around these two cards: Garna, Bloodfist of Keld Warhost's Frenzy Which of these options do you like as a go-wide body maker and rare-level card...

    vennythekid's [WAR] Cube

    Just drafted this on Arena and it was a lot of fun. Obviously this chock full of premium cards for the format which helps, but I the subtle lands-theme that this got to play while beating down was a delight. In particular The Weatherseed Treaty has a really fun play pattern and combines so...

    This idea is awesome (and I can't not read a post that starts with that picture!)

    I don't have a cube or cube group at the moment, just drafting the set on Arena, but this little core here is getting my wheels turning again Eerie Soultender Urborg Repossesion Writhing Necromass

    I just want to add that party is brilliant draft mechanic for "how to do tribal the right way" in this set. Pretend green doesn't exist for a moment (because they get to play with lands this set). Each color gets a major tribe and a minor tribe, and the gold cards are payoffs for the tribal...

    I'm looking for some advice on selling a part of my collection. Is the best route just CFB/SCG/CardKingdom buylisting? Anyone here have experience selling 300-500 medium value cards?

    General Casual Format: Kid Pleaser

    Booster Blitz is sort of interesting... it looks a bit like micro-sealed but with a much smaller card pool. The resource management aspect of a limited pool could add fascinating depth!

    vennythekid's [WAR] Cube

    Thanks, I appreciate it! At the moment, the list is nowhere near draftable, I'm more musing about my limited ideas and experiences in the hopes of eventually synthesizing it into a cube. I do have a long weekend ahead of me so perhaps I'll finally get a rough draft done.

    vennythekid's [WAR] Cube

    I hit Diamond in M21 this past season on Arena. I love this set, it's such a good bread-and-butter Magic experience. I'm starting to understand what I like about Magic, and the longer I play this game, the more I like Core sets. This iteration of the Core Set is a shift from War of the Spark, a...

    Card/Deck land destruction

    I used to love this one too! They broke this card with the rules update to split cards, unfortunately. You can't cast Bust for the price of Boom on cascade, etc. anymore

    Everyone should read this article; Sam Black's genius strikes yet again: It's another iteration of the Baron deck that Grillo created in his environment, but in retail Modern Horizons draft, using splice.

    That's where I'm at right now. I've found it very difficult to give up meat entirely, especially since growing up meat was the centerpiece of so many of our family's dinner meals. But earlier this year I stopped buying beef (which is the worst of the group environmentally) at the grocery and...

    What I like about Kasmina is they fabulously bridge the gap between early game and late game. You get to stem early aggression with 2/2s and looting sets up your hand to hit land drops or mitigate flood, and find key threats to enter the late game with an advantage. It's a play-pattern that...

    That's a really fascinating quote from Rosewater! An interesting thought is how a card might be designed to reinforce or dissuade those play-pattern mistakes: Untamed Kavu Sauroform Hybrid
