  • I have yet to see any Valki Vartokamus jokes and I am disappointed in all of you #mtg #MTGKaldheim

    Quoted SaffronOlive's tweet:
    Geez, god/planeswalker MDFC. At first glance it seems really solid. Valki is good early, Tibalt gives you late game utility.

  • Last-minute mythic on #magicarena to close out the year. #mtg Eternal is close to Master Rank too, but I don’t think I have the energy for it. Honestly, grinding to Mythic takes too much time, so maybe I won’t push it so hard in 2021. Or maybe just in December lol

  • Streaming some Kaladesh Remastered draft! Watch me be terrible https://www.twitch.tv/twitchyroy #mtg #magicarena #twitch #mtgkld

    As predicted; I was indeed terrible. Draft seemed to go well enough, but I made too many mistakes I guess? Seems like this format is not for me.

  • Kaladesh Remastered draft really doesn’t like me; I thought this deck was pretty good, but it was yet another 0-3. D: At least I didn’t waste gems this time. #mtg #magicarena #mtgkld

  • Streaming some more Kaladesh Remastered draft (ep 2) https://www.twitch.tv/twitchyroy #mtg #magicarena #twitch #mtgkld

    Unfortunately, internet was too poor again tonight for streaming :(

    Ok, I went ahead and did two drafts which was a terrible idea because I did very poorly both times. (Didn’t bother getting a screenshot of the second result, they were the same!) Sigh, this format is tough. Hopefully I figure it out by next time.

  • Kaladesh Remastered draft ep 1 https://www.twitch.tv/twitchyroy #mtg #magicarena #twitch #mtgkld

    Sadly, internet wasn’t too good so I just cut the stream short. Too bad, so sad

    Draft didn’t feel super good, but I managed to break even in the games. No video because no stream. (In hindsight I could have just recorded locally!) Maybe I’ll try streaming a draft again early next week.

  • Decided to try a Kaladesh Remastered sealed before diving into draft. Didn’t do particularly well, but at least I got a feel of what the Kaladesh limited format is like (again) #mtg #magicarena #mtgkld

  • Decided to risk my precious gems playing Ikoria Turbo Draft on #magicarena. Turned out well! Just need to draft crystals (essentially moxes). Draw cards and counterspells are great, so blue is best in this format apparently. #mtg

    Okay, I had a lot of fun so I did another one. No Boon of the Wish Giver meant the deck wasn’t as strong. This one was a lot closer, but managed to get there.

    I went for a third one and was struck down for my insolence. Only got three crystals this time and even fewer card draw! I think that’s enough for this event lol

  • Thread of #mtg JumpStart results: Attempt 1: Milling Elves, 2-0.

    Attempt 2: Heavily Armored Enchanted (terrible choices - no way to get things off the board, Thriving lands are bad when monocolored, annoyed whenever I draw Gird for Battle), 2-4

    Attempt 3: Feathered Friends + Basri. These white decks aren’t good for my daily quests. Even less removal. 2-5. I think that’s enough for today.

    Attempt 4: Plus One Dragons. 2-0. The sad thing about this format is that you tend to spend more time with the suckier decks and not enough time with the fun ones. (I know, I know, that’s actually up to me, but I want to sample as many pairs as possible!)

    Attempt 5: Archeology Under The Sea. Why did I go monocolor again? 2-6. Deck was fun, but way too slow (check out that “curve”). Aaaaand I’m out of gold, so that’s enough JumpStart for a while.

    Attempt 6: Dinosaurs Reanimated. 2-1. Power level reasonably high, with removal coming mostly from the green side (surprisingly!).

    Attempt 7: Vampires Devilish. Quick 2-1. Kinda boring, but eh. Way too many fours.

    Attempt 8: Liliana Tree Hugging. 3-3. Played a bit extra to complete my quest.

    Attempt 9: Milling Wizards. 2-0. My first repeat! As usual, Milling is super strong.

    Video of attempts 8 and 9 here:

    Quoted roytang's tweet:
    Played two Jumpstarts! YT: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u1KtPh_xoLo

    Attempt 10: Chandra Angels. 2-2. Losses were due to clunky hands (drawings fives and sixes while being stuck at 3-4 lands)

    Attempt 11: Witchcraft Goblins. 2-1. The wins were due to the opponent timing out or randomly quitting early, so that sucks. Out of gold again so I’ll just keep this one around for daily quests for a while.

    Attempts 12-14! Rogues Cats 2-1, Seismic Predatory 2-3, Phyrexian Plus One 2-3

    Video here:

    Quoted roytang's tweet:
    Played 3 Jumpstart decks! YT: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qHCF4vLlcKQ

    Attempts 15-17! Rogues Above the Clouds 2-3, Smashing Legion 2-4 (forgot to get a deck list screenshot for this one), Dinosaur Dogs 2-0. YT of the games: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dG6-lNKfyis

    Attempts 18-19! Seismic Doctor (DAMNIT 5th Lavamancer!) 2-2, Basri Walls 2-1. Still missing Garruk and Teferi =/

    JumpStart Attempt 20, the final one for this set (a nice round number): Reanimated Teferi. Got one of the two missing PW packets, although this combination wasn’t too great, only went 2-4. Still missing the Garruk one, hopefully we get it if/when JS returns in the future

    Overall, JumpStart was a reasonably fun casual experience, and I fully expect them to bring it back every so often as I think it’s very good for the casual new player experience, especially for anyone wanting to build casual historic brews

  • M21 draft Episode 6 https://www.twitch.tv/twitchyroy #mtg #magicarena #twitch #m21

    FINALLY managed to hit 7 wins in M21 draft! This is also the SEASON FINALE for M21 draft for me I think. Maybe more limited when Jumpstart comes around?

  • M21 draft Episode 3 https://www.twitch.tv/twitchyroy #mtg #magicarena #m21 #twitch

    Had to do 3 drafts just to jump from Gold 1 to Platinum lol. 1 draft was terrible, 2 were mediocre. 3rd draft was a WG deck (no screenshot here). At least I finally got to try some archetypes other than WB!

    Draft deck was fine, games were terrible; lots of misplays. Last chance tomorrow to rank up before rollover!

    Draft went reasonably well, all things considered. Lost 2 games to mana flood/screw, but that’s fine.
