Yeah the only one that really annoyed me was the first one.
Part I: Ravnica at War - Momir = Mana-screw. I hated this one A LOT. I may have ended up scooping to mana-screw for at least 20 games in a row here.
Part II: No Escape - Pauper. This one was fun, tho it took me a while to find a deck that was competitive.
Part III: Storm the Citadel - Singleton.
I actually found this one to be a lot of fun. I just played the most powerful Sultai stuff I could and killed it pretty quick.
Part IV: Commence the Endgame - Counters.
I played a deck, mostly Gruul style Riot creatures with a blue splash and ended up sweeping it 10-0. I may have gotten lucky tho by the sound of it. I think playing Wrath's may have been the way to go.
Part V: Gideons Sacrifice - Ravnica = Play a GATES deck. It was easy. Dominated, even without Gates Ablaze.
Overall I liked the events. Some new challenge is always good.

Ok, so I knew this card had limited potential.
I've been trying to find a home for it, and so far Rakdos Aggro seems to be it, but I'm trying out other options.
I decided to change up my Hardened Scales-Counters deck, and chuck in Red. (it's been GB for a while now)
Long story short, heaping counters on it c/o Forgotten Ancient etc. to make it scary big was fun, but ultimately without some sort of evasion or trample enabler, this card gets chumped by Plants.
Anyone else run this fella? Where did you find a home for it?
Jun 18, 2019Personally I don't find RDW to be the problem.Posted in: MTG Arena
For me it's Esper. It doesn't matter what deck I play that's fun, I end up playing against Esper all the time, and it's very hard to beat. I can't wait for big Teferi to rotate.
FWIW, I hope the game matures into a platform that can provide not only Standard duels, but multiplayer, Modern, maybe even something more fun like Legacy.
Jun 17, 2019Posted in: MultiplayerQuote from Atanar »I am struggling to find other cards that care about having lot's of extra combat step cards other than these two.
Maybe expand your scope to include cards that say *extra turn* instead of just combat. There's plenty of them...
Jun 16, 2019Anyone faced the new INFINITE combo deck running Magistrate's Scepter?Posted in: MTG Arena
To me, this is just the same as Nexus of Fate, which saw a ban from B01, as we just sit and watch the opponent durdle for the next 10 minutes.
Jun 14, 2019FWIW, the game does have glitches, whether our OP knows the reason why or not.Posted in: MTG Arena
I've had a couple games where I conceded, the graphics show me exploding, and yet I was awarded the win.
Whenever I have God-Eternal Kefnet on the field, I cross my fingers I don't draw a Chemister's Insight at start of turn. Whenever I have tried using Kefnet's ability, it just whiffs and I get nothing but two tapped lands.
I have also noticed that some players have managed to cast Charging Monstrosaur for 3-cmc, with nothing else on the field.
I've not been able to replicate this, so I don't know how or why it's happening.
Jun 14, 2019Posted in: MTG ArenaQuote from SardoNespa »RDW was the first playable deck I got and everything else is still many many Rares out of reach.
This I feel is probably the main reason why, everyone netdecks how many rares they might need for a decent B01 deck, and RDW is the quickest to assemble.
FWIW, I do find the match generator does pair RDW up against decks with a heavy lifegain theme, so it's not like it's downhill skiing.
Jun 14, 2019Hi all,Posted in: MTG Arena
Just thought I'd share. The new "Endgame" mode that has the counters buff was kind to me. I went 10-0.
My list was essentially just a Gruul deck with a low curve, together with a blue splash for Merfolk Skydiver & Hydroid Krasis.
I didn't run any typical red removal, just 4 Rabid Bite and a couple bounce spells.
Otherwise, 3 Domri, Anarch of Bolas, a single Nissa and an Evolution Sage.
Jun 13, 2019Posted in: Arena Bo1Quote from MTGSavage »I swear the game ramps up the difficulty every time I'm about to tier up.
Pretty much. I have the same problem, every time I'm close to clearing a tier (think Gold, Platinum etc.) I just get mana-screwed something cruel.
Jun 11, 2019Thanks for the replies everyonePosted in: Multiplayer
I like it
No not really, specifically playing a single creature to fetch up the rest, as an *enters the battlefield* effect. Having to get around summoning sickness and tapping hem for the effect isn't where I wanna be.
Quote from Wildfire393 »If you're not using them for their bodies, your best bet is going to be using them as sources of card advantage.
This is more what I was thinking. Obviously the white options here in Squadron Hawk & Legion Conquistador are more viable, given white has options like Sunscour & Force of Virtue.
Scroll Rack, Brainstorm etc. looks like a fun idea. I'll have to do a bit of digging here and see if it's worth the effort.
Jun 4, 2019Hi all,Posted in: Multiplayer
Just curious if anyone has found a use for creatures that fetch ALL their mates in the deck, outside of equipment or aura decks.
Think Squadron Hawk, Legion Conquistador, Howling Wolf, Nesting Wurm, Skyshroud Sentinel etc.
If there's any I've missed please add them to the thread!
Of course there are others that are far more mana-intensive like Growth-Chamber Guardian, but this type isn't really what I'm thinking.
Just wondering if anyone has found a strategy or something genuinely cool, with these sorts of creatures.
Jun 2, 2019Posted in: MultiplayerQuote from Perodequeso »My play groups tend to run B&R similar to what TechnicolorMage described. If it's legal in Legacy rock four of, if not it's restricted. Works out pretty well for us.
Yeah our group plays similarly, but we do have a bit of wriggle room, depending on the context of the deck.
I get that Windfall is a banned card in Legacy, but I'm not rocking a storm deck with Lion's Eye Diamond or Infernal Tutor, so I don't see how this card is broken, given the context of my deck.
Here's the version I took out last night for kitchen-table magic;
Some mill protection might be good, but I lent my only Kozilek, Butcher of Truth to my wifey, playing her Post-ramp deck.
Ideally I'd be playing fetches with Brainstorm, but I'm using them in another deck. I did take a handful of cards with me, like a sideboard, I ended up chucking in 4 Crux of Fate & 2 Leyline of the Void after getting destroyed by shuffle-Eldrazi. Thanks wifey...
It did ok, and was consistently able to assemble the pieces. Fun deck to play, although very vulnerable to hate. I won a single game in a 5 player FFA, out of 5 total, which was better than I expected since they knew what deck I was on, and ganged up on me in most of the games. Everyone hates mill it seems...
Playing Lim-Duls Vault was a good call. Chasm Skulker was pretty good, although it did become a Clone target with my opponents once they realised the tokens had island-walk. Yeah... that backfired a little! LOL Maybe some Jace's Phantasm next time I take the deck out.

Windfall is restricted? What about Dark Deal & Whispering Madness? Are these banned in your group too?
To be honest, I'm probably going to cut Treasure Cruise, as Visions essentially does the same job by that stage of the game.
May 29, 2019Ha ha - yeah I love both Narset cards too. I picked up a full set of Narset, Parter of Veils as soon as I saw it available for pre-order.Posted in: Multiplayer
Ok, so here's where my mind is at. I feel a sweeper might help, but Skulker & Waste Not may be enough. I'm trying to keep the curve as low as I can, given Mill usually draws hate, so no Sire of Stagnation for now. I love the idea of a couple Dream Salvage in here, but the card feels *win-more*. That said, it would work with Waste Not....
EDIT: I'll be chucking a singleton Eldrazi in here to shuffle my grave back into the library.
2nd EDIT: Probably +4 Lim-Dûl's Vault (cos I have them) to find Waste Not & Corrosion
May 28, 2019Thanks for the repliesPosted in: Multiplayer
In the context of Windfall, Dark Deal & Whispering Madness, Waste Not here as a 2-drop fits very well on curve. Great suggestion.
Notion Thief combo with Psychic Corrosion and a mass draw spell like Windfall is just stupid. Ha!
Narset, Parter of the Veils is a strong card in duels. In MP land, have you found you get hated out for it? So far I find the card immediately makes the whole table turn on me for turning off their blue filter, perm-based draw and the like.
Winds of Change doesn't discard, Wheel is out of my price range.
Sphinx's tutelage, like you say, isn't as good. I think Memory Erosion might be a better choice to this should I choose to play it.
