    To be clear, though, MTG Salvation will be continuing on. We have no chance of closing, etc. With the deal not even have finished closing yet, though, it's way too early to try to answer any real questions or give any predictions about accounts or other impacts.

    When these things become clear, we will absolutely inform everyone.

    It's an ipad keyboard thing.
    It wants to make things "look nicer" so it replaces the normal quotes, apostrophes, etc, with more stylized versions.

    If you hold down the "apostrophe" character on the keyboard, the real apostrophe appears as one of the options to choose. If this annoys you too much, you can instead just go into your keyboard settings and toggle "Smart Punctuation" to OFF. This will make the apostrophe actually default to the "real" apostrophe, etc.

    Quote from RivenEsq »
    Hello, I tried to find a better place to put this, but the previous name change thread was retired and there doesn't seem to be anywhere else. Since you did this previously, do you think you could change my name to "RivenEsq" ?

    Thanks in advance!
    Changed! Smile

    ..and yeah, I guess we never made a new one after Introduce Yourself retired.
    I'll bring it up.

    It honestly depends on how much you can or are willing to invest, and what your all-told goals are.

    Are you looking to play casually or competitively?
    Are you looking mainly to start a collection or build specific decks?

    It's basically a question of Quantity vs Quality.

    Collection and more casual play prefer the Quantity side of things. Buying the gift box, toolkit, fat packs, and booster boxes will bulk up your collection quickly, and offer a lot of interesting options for kitchen table magic and casual play. Then you can slowly trade for what you need.

    Competitive play or more specific decks prefer the Quality side of things. They need specific cards depending on what you're wanting to play, so buying a random assortment (whether packs or boxes) won't give you all the specific cards you're looking for. In this case, you are much better off buying individual cards and focusing on just building decks you want to play.

    You can, of course, go somewhere between with Standard, specifically. Buy a box/fatpack/etc and use it as a basis of making the Standard deck you want. Especially if you're not sold on one specific Standard deck. You can use its contents to start the decks, pick up anything cheap you're missing, and then slowly work towards finishing it with the more expensive cards. This is one of the best way to get into Standard on a budget, honestly.

    Once we hit Modern and Commander, however, we definitely have to start committing to the Competitive vs Casual / Quality vs Quantity debate.

    If you're going casual and collection, then you're still fine buying bulk. The decks here will take a hard hit on their viability, but you can easily supplement them up a notch or two on a budget.

    If you're looking for a Competitive Deck in either format, however, buying boxes or packs will give you very little return on what you need. Perhaps even none at all. The card pool here is infinitely more vast, Standard cards see only minor play, and decks are very specific about what they want. As such, the only real option is to go with individual buys. Even if you have to start off with a budget-friendly version and work you're way up, you're better off avoiding bulk.


    If I were starting off, I would split the decision. Competitive for Standard, Casual for everything else.

    Buy a bit of bulk, whether packs, fatpacks, boxes, or giftboxes. Whatever you can afford, while still holding back a bit of money to finish off decks. Use the bulk to start off some EDH or other casual decks, and flesh them out with budget friendly options. It's not hard to finish them off cheaply. The price difference between the best card and the second best card can be staggering. At the same time, if the bulk you're buying is Standard, you'll inevitably get some good Standard cards. From this, you can build a semi-competitive Standard deck, and invest the bulk of the extra money into getting it top notch.

    Two great places to start are the "Holiday Gift Box" and the "Deckbuilder's Toolkit".

    Each of these are superb for getting a small collection started. Both come with lands, cards, and a place to start storing them. The Gift Box is best for the storage, and having a decent chance at opening a good pack of the newer sets. The Deckbuilder's Toolkit is best for getting the basic pieces to start building decks.

    I would go with either, or even both.

    Quote from NightCabbage1 »
    So I had an old account from 2015 called NightCabbage.

    When I logged in today it forced to me make a new account using my Twitch account. I tried to enter my old username of NightCabbage and it would not let me.

    So now I've had to name myself NightCabbage1, and it seems my old account is completely inaccessible (and my username with it).

    That seems like a pretty bad bug in your system... how has everyone else not also lost their old usernames and accounts? Am I missing something? Grin
    Quote from Strivos2 »
    I too am in a situation similar to Mr. Cabbage. My previous account was "Strivos", but I am not able to use that to access this site anymore. Is there a way to merge that account this this one so I can get back Strivos. If you want to send a confirmation to my email there then I can confirm it.


    If there is something else I should do or place to bring this up please let me know.
    Apologies for not seeing this earlier.

    All old accounts that were never merged with a twitch account are now completely locked out from regular users.

    If you follow the below steps, however, Curse/Twitch Customer support can verify you and force-merge these accounts.
    It's the only way to get into an old, unmerged, MTGS account at this point.

    There's not a system in place that can add or remove usergroups automatically, based on any criteria.
    Otherwise, I'd be all for this.
    Sorry <3
