  • posted a message on MTGS and logging in with Twitch
    Hi,

    not sure how to start, but I wanted to say that using twitch to login into MTGS made my user experience worse and still, most people may think "who cares", but the point is the following,

    in the beginning you merge the accounts and you can login with email and password, then no email allowed, only username that I could choose as I wanted, so much harder to remember and this morning it took me struggle and frustration to do it.

    It was already harder with Twitch, so now why not allowed to login with email? I don't get why we are driving to worsen the user experience Frown

    Hello!

    I am a MTGSalvation user for so many years...

    I am experiencing serious issues to log in after merging with Twitch. Today it took me over 5 minutes just to log in.
    First of all is hard when you cannot use the same login you used for years, after recalling the one after merging, I had to insert 4-5 times and solved capcha before it accepted Frown

    Not a good logging experience ^^

    I don't think we'll see the shocklands, despite being from Ravnica, 10 rare slots in a masters set is a lot. They're probably more suited for Return to Return to Ravnica.

    Why Oooze?
    Why again?

    Thx for your posts.

    Im buying into Goblins atm, but i still only got Mountains+fetches+Vials.
    My thought was to go Lackey+Warren Instigator (had playset) and some Krenko and Kiki, Moxe's, as a start of.


    Id be glad to hear updates.


    Goblin is a pretty conservative deck...

    You will read here about most winning decks around, I normally avoid to edit too much my deck according to news in legacy that are not going to last.

    You have to choose then if you play goblins only to win or to win but having fun.

    Mmm, having a female body in the illustration of a card does not mean they are sexy...

    Vampire hexmage is sexy indeed

    I understand that Wizards tries to keep the game "young" with new mechanics but I am pretty disappointed about vehicles and the way they work...


    Let's keep aside the thing I don't like "crew" mechanic either,
    Supposing you are tapping creatures to have them driving a vehicle, if I destroy a vehicle, creatures should die as well... It would make more sense and compensate the great pro that you can tap creatures just entered that cannot attack but can crew.

    What do you think?

    Some artifacts added to the sideboard, and Pyroclasm instead of Fallout.
    Pros Pyroclasm: where needed, no one is going to counter it, and it hits one turn earlier
    Cons Pyroclasm: it doesn't hit the opponent, but in the end Fallout costs too much

    Final question: suggestions on the Vortex total amount in the 75?


    With my actual build I am playing 2 Vortex, you want to see that card, but not in multiple draws and not necessarily on turn 1...

    About Fallout, I used to have in sideboard. IMO the additional cost of 1 is fairly covered by avoiding counters against merfolks and other tricky blu mages (citation!)

    What about Legion Loyalist? Would he be viable in a competitive burn deck? Sorry if this has already been covered, but I cba going through 100 plus pages lol.


    No, it is not...

    You want that each spell will have a ratio of 3 damages for each mana you spend (not necessary at the same time, it could be a creature that hits multiple times in order to achieve 3 for 1 ratio)

    Loyalist will hit once, so 1-for-1

    I was hoping that wizards could use this new set as a way to reprint cards that eternal* players really use in tournaments...
    Maybe with an eye on reprinting something to make more affordable the format for players.

    Instead they did not.

    A huge portion of them has been printed just to draft and have never seen a legacy tournament at all. (e.g. check the the stupid lands they printed or "seals of" cycle)

    Rarity level is also broken in several cases.

    So sad for an old player like me

    * for eternal I mean formats that do not rotate

    Quote from Hey Napkin »
    This was my end of the year pimp update. I've posted this on mtgthesource and reddit a few months ago but I seem to have forgotten to post it here. Between January and now I have a few more pieces but i'll save those for the next big update.

    It's my elves deck. It's by far my favorite deck to play and I put my heart and soul into finishing it. I started playing Legacy around a decade ago and from the start, I knew I wanted to play Elves. It was fun and I was a high school student with little to no income. It was no where near tier 1 back then. Back then, it was an all-in combo deck with Summoner's Pact, Emrakul, and Grapeshot as the finishers.

    Over the years, I slowly upgraded my deck. I took a break for a few years during college. When I came back, Elves became a whole new deck. With the new legend rule change which made Gaea's Cradle insane and the printing of Craterhoof Behemoth, Elves was finally good. I have a little more income now since graduating college and I upgraded from English nonfoil to English foil, and then now it's almost complete as Chinese foil.

    So, here's the deck:












    I plan to get almost every card altered eventually, so if anyone has any alter ideas, let me know!

    When this deck is completely 100% chinese foil and altered, i'll probably work on simplify chinese foiling a vintage deck, career and/or future wife permitting :p

    Now comes my question, what happens if they ban a card of your deck or if they change legacy introducing Eternal?
    Pimping is too risky IMO
