One does not preclude the other, though.Quote from void_nothing »Two colors - if I understand Manite - is just a default since we're going for a draftable product. Shwedge is weirdly appealing, and blue dredge sounds absolutely despicable in the best way.
IE: A wedge faction, but no 3-color cards. "DredgeFaction" could be represented in G, B, U, GB, GU, UB.
IF you go with some form of partner, for instance, you could have a GU and BU partner set.
You could even cut UB out, going enemy-pair golds only, if you want to simplify further.
Shard likewise works.
RGB Shard: RG, RB, ±GB.
Trying to make 3-color cards is always the hard part of shard/wedge, so IF it goes shard/wedge, I'd recommend actually skipping them.
It keeps the draft just as easy as, say, Rav, but you can splash/explore a third color if it presents itself.
Aug 12, 2018Is this open for random people like me to toss out ideas, or is this a solid V_N-Manite project?Posted in: Custom Set Creation and Discussion
Some pregame questions to answer, even if it's just for you two.
- What ratio are you looking for in new/existing cards? The semi-standard 2/3rds reprint, 1/3rd new?
- How far do you want to push "combo"?
- Should the new mechanic(s) cover a color slot/faction, or go across all factions. If it goes across all factions, should it specifically compliment the other mechanics?
- Is ten 2-color pairs a sold thing, or just a brainstorm? (Imagine: going shard/wedge, and pushing Dredge into a third color)
Regardless, food for thought.

Sideboard will always push to its own column.
I don't know the exact methodology, but it's an automated process on how it divides them into columns. Depending on the deck, you can get two or three columns. Sometimes, if it displays a little wonky, you can reorder the sections and it'll change its layout. If it feels way off, try swapping the order (ie: Spells, Creatures, Artifacts -> Artifacts, Spells, Creatures). Hopefully it'll separate it closer to your liking.

I'll pass this up.
Apologies this hasn't been noticed before now.

Make sure you have a twitch account already. If not, you need to make one. After that, proceed to

Sep 13, 2017I can't speak for Equifax/Sony/etc, but I can definitely tell you we care about user security here. We're knowingly asking people to go through a process that many won't particularly want or understand, with one of the main reasons being security. If we didn't care, we wouldn't be doing this. We definitely don't track people for advertisement purposes - google et al do all that. Remember that MTGS/Curse is already part of Twitch, so neither company is getting any more information that it already has. It's simply consolidating that into a single place for security, later potential, ease of access for a lot of people, etc.Posted in: Articles
Sep 13, 2017I'm sorry you feel insulted.Posted in: Articles
The security I've touched on several times here. The ease of login is definitely better if you use any other Curse/Twitch site. If you don't, I understand that's not a real benefit. The Twitch user support is definitely high caliber.
Moreso, there are things that are being looked into down the road that could give many users benefits they can see more readily.
Sep 13, 2017Your account is already a curse account, and since Curse and MTGS are part of twitch, you're already trusting them with everything. They're knowingly going through a process that many people will find annoying because you've trusted them with your information, and they want to keep everything as secure as possible.Posted in: Articles
Sep 13, 2017You should totally stay.Posted in: Articles
The process takes less than 2 minutes, and you don't have to ever go watch anything on twitch if you don't like that sort of thing.
I merged with twitch when the option first came up.
I see absolutely no difference browsing/using mtgs.
Sep 13, 2017We've had it as a voluntary thing for some time. Seeing how well things worked, and the overall benefits and technical details showed us that we should migrate everyone this way.Posted in: Articles
We wouldn't need to go through this anything like this again.
Sep 13, 2017I did my best to explain the question as to why it helps security.Posted in: Articles
Let me try again.
Person A has 47 different accounts on various websites. If any of those 47 sites is breached, his personal information is now had by hackers. More than likely, that person didn't use 47 different passwords, so they probably have access to a multitude of other sites. Even if not, that person is relying on all of those websites not being hacked.
Person B has an account on Facebook. He then uses his Facebook account to sign in on 47 different websites. If any of those 47 websites gets breached.. the hackers get grand total of his facebook name, and nothing else.
This is the general overview for single sign on.
MTGS/Curse are owned by Twitch. Currently, everyone has a Curse account which spans all of curse's sites and infrastructure. There is, of course, overlap between the Curse and Twitch infrastructure as the merger matures. Trying to keep curse accounts separate from twitch accounts across a multitude of sites and servers, with different systems and protocols, is the antithesis of good security measures.
Sep 11, 2017Single Sign On, when implemented correctly (as it will be here), is more secure for a couple of reasons.Posted in: Articles
Having a central authorization for all accounts means you have one single system that you have to keep secure. Rather than trying to roll out updates across a multitude of sites and systems, you have one and only one that you can roll updates out to. Pretty much every server system and software has security updates on a regular basis. Being able to roll out these updates quickly is paramount to keeping user data secure. Central auth also gives you a dedicated server that is there only for the authorization. The more software you add to a system, the more potential security vulnerabilities you add. By dedicating the server, and keeping it separate, someone hacking any part of MTGSalvation, for instance, could no longer obtain any of your personal information. They'd have to hack the auth server specifically, which is garunteed to have less potential for being at all vulnerable.
As anyone who's seen the news lately - personal identifying information is a strong target for hackers and thieves. They can often use this information to access other sites, steal identities, etc.
Also, many people do frequent Twitch, or other gaming sites that are under the twitch/curse umbrella. Having separate sign ins for each site practically ensures the average user will be reusing passwords and credentials. This puts them in the habit of doing so, which is horrendous for security. If you limit the number of times they have to have a login, you increase the chances that they are using unique credentials.
Jul 26, 2017I agree Spearbreaker is a strong card, and can easily be added to the titan package. I overlooked mentioning him as a go-to card when you extend the budget, though. Should definitely have touched on him. There were a lot of cards I wanted to mention, but didn't want to drag that section out.Posted in: Articles
I wouldn't swap out Shaman of Forgotten Ways though. He's good accel, and can end the game with his second ability. The latter part is what separates him from other mana critters. If you get things into position, you can easily swing at everyone, then use his ability to make each of those swings game enders.
Jul 26, 2017If you want to add more fetching, absolutely! I like Tusker more for the card draw he brings, and Monitor because it puts it in play as actual ramp. Eternal Dragon is a good 3rd, but was bumped out by Monitor. Tastes may vary, of course.Posted in: Articles
Valley Rannet could be a fourth, but he's far less useful than Eternal Dragon when you don't need to cycle, so I would definitely put him as a distant fourth.
Jul 26, 2017I agree, both cards are definitely strong. They're both slightly outside of the budget constraints though. There were quite a few $3-$4 cards I wanted, but I didn't want to break budget anymore than I felt I had to. The four I did go slightly out of budget can easily be purchased for around the $2 mark if you're ok with SP, and I felt they were a necessity.Posted in: Articles
By the end, I felt the article was starting to get a little long, so I didn't want to add much more to the expanded budget section. Believe me, I could write an article on that alone, heh.
