    posted a message on Has Wal-Mart dropped the price of Ixalan packs?
    I noticed the same thing on Friday and asked the CSM on duty about it. She said that all MTG Boosters in all Wal-Marts are currently on rollback and are $3.33. She said it usually takes a bit to update the pricing tags, but the 3.33 price is correct. I went ahead and bought 10 boosters. Pulled a Search for Azcanta, and the new Vraska.

    I agree with DuanraD - I can't see playing this deck without at least a pair of Wall of Omens (I prefer 3). I can't remember who said it, but someone basically called it Doomblade + Draw a card in the matchups where it matters. Even against Shadow/Eldrazi/huge creature decks, chump blocking on a critical turn to set up a walker and a sweeper is just back breaking for the opponent. I also don't think Snapcaster is very good past the 2nd copy - I have been messing around with a 3rd copy because of Opt, but now that I've gotten a lot of games in with that configuration I'm pretty sure going back to 2 Snaps is correct. My Opt/Serum split reflects that at 3Opt 2Serum currently.


    The list I was playing is very similar to the list Raymond Perez won the last SCG Modern Classic with. I find Wall of Omens to just be an unnecessary 2 drop in a deck with a lot of 2 drops. I played a lot of games with the card and was frequently boarding it out for more action. Now with trying Search for Azcanta you have a lot of cards competing for your turn 2 play.

    I think playing less than 3 Snapcaster Mage is definitely a mistake. It's one of the strongest cards in a deck that durdles quite a bit. Raymond ran 3 Snap and 1 Clique. I cut the Clique for Snapcaster #4 to really try to take advantage of Opt being an instant. If I could go back I'd play the Clique instead.

    I think most people know that Ad Nauseam plays 1 Lightning Storm and 1 Lab Maniac. If your opponent Thoughtseizes you they are more likely to take Ad Nauseam, Angel's Grace, Unlife etc than the actual kill spell since they assume you have more than one way to kill. This may have benefited him at some point during the tournament.

    I think we are just inching closer and closer to Wizards reinstating the Player Rewards program.

    I think Foil Ulamog will hit $25.00. I'd wait to buy until then.

    I don't think so. The deck struggles against any kind of fast deck so casting this against them which just result in more blowouts I think. The deck plays almost entirely like a control deck and almost never has an empty hand. I see very little upside for us casting that spell.

    posted a message on Wal-Mart not carrying Magic the Gathering anymore?
    Wal-Mart is stocked by individual suppliers so what likely occurred is that the Wal-Marts you visited were supplied by the same vendor who decided to no longer operate in that area, or Wal-Mart terminated their contract with that individual supplier.
