    Rotation and Eternal format (Modern especially) will be the main question.

    To many, $ is secondary.

    I'm playing UWR Control right now and you 2 are right. If people drag out Etron and Titanshift,

    UWR is too fair to cut through the filth.

    Would love to be wrong, because honestly I could watch UWR all day.

    Its not even just that its a tired and pathetic interface. In this day and age, it is SLOW, man is it ever bad right now. I'm playing UWR control there now and its brutal slow.

    Hoping that anything digital would retain/gain value is a bit of a pipe dream anyway to me.

    'Hey guys Snapcasters are too expensive'
    'Add a Zero somewhere and we have X more in rotation'
    'Cool'

    Its never been 'real' to me.

    Sorry to cut up your post but this bit jumps out at me. I have a long and boring back story around what I play (from Twin, to Storm, to Turns, to Grixis Control, Prowess, to Nahiri, to Queller) but came back for UWR Control, and I really love Azcanta. Is the card gaining respect from other decks, or is it just us that is playing it really?

    It didnt seem too hyped initially but the impact it has seems undervalued by most.

    Either way, loving the deck right now, there isnt a single card in it that I dont want to be casting at some point.

    Indeed, its a different thing when you have something that can be played in Paper, and Online, create a new Online platform, but exclude what people already own.

    Eh, call me crazy but I see a difference between removing access from someone who essentially went for Suicide by Cop, and removing the value from a large number of their players pockets.

    Considering there is real cost for people here. I cannot imagine they are able to turn off the lights, without compensation.

    Playing in person is far more fun to me than on mtgo. MTGO is to practice for my events in paper.

    I'd lose a ton of interest if I didn't have something to look forward to going to


    Magic is kind of low on my priority list.

    Family, Work, Muay Thai, Gym, Overwatch, and then Magic and some other games. Its near impossible for me to get out to paper, while late night Magic on MTGO, gets that itch done.

    I've read more and apparently Wizards intends to keep both running, so...I dont know how to take that. The MTGO client is objectively one of the worst apps I've used. Its embarrassingly bad, so I would hope they would invest to update it, but if Arena is soaking up dev time...I dont know.

    Different teams maybe.

    Ok, let's stop with the Depression in here. I mean, what would we do if this was a Standard forum and we were just off of 4 bannings?

    Modern is still doing great, and there's a PT coming up and probably some unbans after it. Buckle up, enjoy the best mtg format.


    Hopefully, I will. Catching the UWR Mirror Final at SCG was the best thing I could have hoped for for my interest in the game. That doesnt mean its a bad idea for me personally to liquidate a bunch of stuff I dont need. I'm not, ever, realistically going to play anything that isnt UWR, or URx, and I dont like the Discard vs Counter fight that happens when I build Grixis (I like Counters more) so...why wait?

    I know myself, I know what I want, and thats that.

    Why wait till the prices fall, I'll just sell out of all the stuff I already sold in paper when I was grossed out by the meta (ETron as a deck makes me physically ill).

    I'm not using them, dont really want them, and I'm not convinced that Wizards is going to support MTGO long term.

    EDIT: I mean its like this. I know what I want to be playing, when I'm playing this game. I know what I want to experience during the game, and I know what I dont like (pretty much every other deck I've tried). I'm losing nothing by selling out now, especially since a lot of what I had, has gone up.

    Same as in Paper really, so its all good. I just hope Snaps stay's high I got them a fair bit cheaper. :]

    Who can I tweet at over this? Everything sounds really bad to me.

    Looks nice, but I'm not into Magic for Standard.

    Really hard to justify to myself right now even continuing in the hobby, and its a shame because I liked the way Modern was heading after I took a break during the last ETron/GTron/GDS/JDS Meta period.

    I do a lot of my playing on MTGO, the joy's of being 'free' at 9pm, and if I cannot do that, then...see ya Wizards.

    In my world (the real work world I live in that is) those things dont matter. Is MTGO profitable? If so, its only due to Standard. There is no way they keep it up if they have Arena.

    Maybe it limps along as a legacy supported app, but new sets? Thats a whole code base updated every time, for Standard.

    I just dont see it.

    I've sold all my MTGO stuff that isnt for my UWR deck just now.

    I'm just worried about what it means for Online Modern (and other non-Standard Formats) because there is no way they keep supporting MTGO, its a trainwreck and has been for years.

    If Arena has no plan to support Modern, thats bad for anyone non-standard.
