    I had a few D and D books as a kid, probably 3rd edition (I think the 3 core books and Eberron setting). I don't remember what I've done with them. But when they spoiled Guildmasters Guide to Ravnica, I've been tempted to get the most recent version of the core books (5th e I think?) so I can get this and play on Ravnica and I really appreciate your description.

    Thanks for posting about this

    is there a correct number of arcane artisans to run in the side? is it okay to run some kind of split of through the breach and the artisan?

    I think I'm gonna just get a set of through the breach soon. Probably the best time to get them right now as they were just reprinted. Might actually use themn too so that's a plus

  • posted a message on What lands are people feeling/playing with?
    I used to use Battle for Zendikar full arts for everything since I have a LOT of them due to opening a fat pack, a booster box I won and then several loose packs when it was a pretty new set.

    Slowly I've been moving away from them and towards Unstable full arts and the foil promo lands they were giving away at GPs this year because I really like them. Didn't pick up as many of the promo lands in GP Montreal as I wish I did so I have my show and tell legacy deck with them and then I have enough for either deaths shadow variant I wanna play (4c traverse runs 1 swamp and 1 forest, GDS 1 island and 1 swamp, so doesn't take much). In my modern Mardu or Abzan I've been using Unstable lands since they're cool, while still a bit more, but easy enough to get. Might pick up more pomro basics next time I'm at face to face games.

    In standard or commander I use from my overabundance of BFZ. I might put Odyssey basics in legacy pox as they're cool and old border

    RE WOTC playtest group: Is it true that Tom Ross is no longer a part of WOTC playtest group?

    Proof: The below image, saying: Boss Naya. Infect. That Theros deck with all the little red creatures. You know? It might be faster to list all the great rogue decks Tom "The Boss" Ross hasn't bolstered to the top of the scene! He's back from WotC, and it looks like he hasn't lost a single step.

    If this is true, do we have someone testing for Modern at the moment?

    Edit: His twitter account reads:
    The guy on the Infect token. Formerly Play Design at Wizards of the Coast.

    So, nobody tests for Modern now?


    I doubt Tom Ross was the only one testing modern in play design. He left for whatever reason, but we shouldn't take that to mean NOBODY is testing for modern anymore.

    RE: Creeping Chill

    This card will not be banned. If anything, they will take out the next best dredger which is Stinkweed Imp. Wizards has said time and time again that dredge is the problem mechanic, not the cards that benefit from it.




    I'd be pretty fine with a stinkweed imp ban, dredge 5 just helps you get rid of most of your deck

    I don't remember exactly who said it but I believe someone said that they don't really test for modern? I believe it was around the time of Eldrazi winter when someone said they completely missed how a lot of the new Eldrazi from Oath of the Gatewatch interacted with the lands such as Eldrazi Temple and Eye of Ugin. I get there's a lot to modern, especially with limited staff but some of this is just painful

    I actually think no cards will be banned. Only unbans will happen next announcement. I really don't think the data shows anything worth banning.

    If I had to predict something being banned, I'd say probably something from Dredge, even though I don't think Creeping Chill's intention is a good argument for it. The dust has settled and Dredge is a good deck, but not worth banning


    part of me thinks one of the main reasons why dredge picked up was because people were really hyped about it getting a new toy, which caused a lot more people to play it. I'm seeing a lot of the hype die down. I mean yeah it's gotten better now but it's probably not the best deck in the format

    I'd like to see them experiment more with unbans as well

    For one thing, I'm thankful it brought the price of Kitchen Finks down. Finks is a card I've wanted to have for a long time.. but feel that paying 15-20 for it is too much. Now that they're at 3-4. Can finally have finks, and I did order at SCG last week. Just waiting for order to arrive. Smile

    Also glad that the prices of some other cards went down.


    I picked up 2 or 3 kitchen finks not long before they announced UMA. I'm not overly upset as I paid buylist for them and figured they'd be good to have. I'm pretty happy with what this should do to prices, at least in the short run as I don't know the print run

    I feel like modern is so busted at this time (KCI and Dredge and Phoenix and Storm and Hollow One) that stuff like SFM, Pod, Punishing Fire, and GSZ WOULD BE FINE. In theory, they would increase diversity, and modern is supposed to be very powerful anyway.


    I'd probably like to see pod or twin unbanned tbh. But twin might just be me. I don't think either would be that busted right now

    I might have to pick up another EE if I can find another original for cheap (the one I have is original so I want them to match)

    I've always thought Pod is actually more powerful than GSZ. I dont really think GSZ is a build around card that some people think it is


    I wish they'd be more willing to unban cards like what they did with GGT to test the format to see if it can handle it. If anything they can do what they did it GGT and just ban it again if it ever becomes too much

    I'd be interested to see how Azorius could be made to work with Bolas. both of their mechanics were so boring to me so I hope they get something new, same with Orzhov

    I'd like to see Bloodrush/bloodthirst or ferocious return.

    I've played this MU quite a lot and I have had a hard time even winning a game (I think I've played around 30 BO3 and won maybe one). I think you have really low chances of winning G1 and G2 / G3 depends on your SB but I wouldn't spend too much time on this MU, it is gonna be a lost BO3 most of the time.


    I've only played the matchup a few times ask before deciding it was awful. Thanks for the insight

    I feel that a lot of people in my area weren't overly excited for the set before it was released but on Friday a lot of people were buying packs and talking about drafts. So maybe it will turn out pretty popular

    what does everyone think of our spirits matchup? I'm struggling with it and don't know if it's actually bad or if I just need advice with it

    I can second the high win percentage of Tron over Mardu, and Mill over tron. Both feel completely lopsided


    Even though Ive only played against Tron once during my time playing Mardu (the guy played VERY poorly, so I won) but I don't actually know how Mardu beats tron reliably/consistently. I played against mill a few weeks ago at the LCQ and ran over the guy. Scapeshift seems similar to ton in a sense, you can tear their hand apart but you can still lose to their top decks if you don't produce the exact set of cards.

    Dredge has ben ever so slowly falling, is that because the hype has been falling off after Guilds of Ravnica release? It seems like a lot of the people who picked up the deck have given it up now, or maybe the format has shifted?
