Sep 23, 2016Have they talked anymore about the inflation? To me that is worse than the new site. I've seen people running 100% bounties on tix just to cash out which is basically the equivalent of a run on the bank.Posted in: Market Street Café
Sep 23, 2016There is a lot of creature kill in this meta and fiend is the most fragile part of the deck. This doesn't mean it's bad, but having played the deck before Cyclops when it used to play less like infect and more just pushing chip damage. I think he's just exploring the posibilities of thermoalchemist.Posted in: Established

Tournaments are an advertisement in this viewpoint. They are a selling point of the product.
"Buy this stuff and you can play in these events for these prizes."
To be frank I don't even know how the Pro Tour qualifying system of events works, as it has little to no information on Wizards' site, and no one seems to tal kbout it.
I know the search on Wizards site is grade F so here's a direct link to a bunch of links that may answer your questions.
Sep 11, 2016the_cardfather posted a message on New Set Spoilers Discussion Thread (Dragons of Tarkir)It's a consolidated thread so people can track the changes to pauper over time. Usually a set might only add 1-2 new cards. The wealth of playable commons that have been added lately is a nice change.Posted in: Pauper
Sep 10, 2016Pauper is fun if you like eternal formats but it's no way to add significant value to your collection. It would give you something to play while you invest in a deck. Standard is fairly budget right now but it rotates quick. That is a big drawback if you don't play a ton.Posted in: Magic Online Formats
Sep 5, 2016It's definitely different to play as a non combo deck, but right now I think there is just too few answers to alchemist (other than creature removal). You can still run free stuff like mutagenic growth and gitaxian probe like the combo list. Growth protects from most burn.Posted in: Established
Aug 31, 2016Posted in: Market Street CaféQuote from Dolono »My account finally got rolling again during the past couple of days. I think a lot of folks are excitedly exploring the new package trade feature, and sending to folks that simply have the most cards to fulfill in a single trade, regardless of the actual value of the trade. I think you could do worse than load up your wants list with the cards you actually want ($2 - $infinity stuff) but add as many cheap commons and uncommons as you can bear; commons and uncommons that you've maybe been toying with the idea of collecting or building with. I think that's a good way of raising your profile and helping folks unload stuff clogging up their own home collections.
For example, I put a bunch of chase standard cards on my list without seeing much action, but once I put some additional SOI and EMN commons and uncommons on my list (for building a dumb super casual edh deck), trades for the chase cards started coming in, usually loaded up with extra commons and uncommons. The cost of the extra commons and uncommons have been negligable, certainly not exceeding the expenses I'd expect honoring a 10-20% bounty.
I haven't really tested this method on modern or older edh/legacy stuff, but I don't think it could hurt to have 4+ cards available for any prospective trader to latch onto in your profile.
No joke. I added a bunch of low cost crap (Wastes et since I didn't draft that set) and trades started rolling in. Personally I look at point values when I do package trades, but I'm the same way. I'd rather ship $2 worth of bulk with my $10 card than a couple of $3 cards that would ship on their own.
Aug 30, 2016I'm going to update the OP since it's mine and convert this thread to UR Drake.Posted in: Established
