  • Wednesday evening Strixhaven quick drafts! https://www.twitch.tv/twitchyroy #mtg #magicarena #twitch #mtgstrixhaven

    Two quick drafts today! Finally managed to get 7 wins in quick draft by forcing silverquill aggro! Well, maybe the Lightscribe helped a lot!

  • Monday Strixhaven quick drafts! https://www.twitch.tv/twitchyroy #mtg #magicarena #twitch #twitter #mtgstrixhaven

    Did two quick drafts today, both were mediocre, but one was slightly better than the other. Probably one more QD stream this week before sealed open on the weekend!

    YT episode split into two because the stream hiccuped in the middle.

  • Saturday Strixhaven quick drafts! https://www.twitch.tv/twitchyroy #mtg #magicarena #twitch #mtgstrixhaven

    Rare-drafted a bunch (I think 6 in the deck and 4 in the board), but still got a decent enough deck. Didn’t perform well though, had some bad keeps

  • Friday afternoon Strixhaven draft! https://www.twitch.tv/twitchyroy #mtg #magicarena #twitch #mtgstrixhaven

    I thought I drafted a couple of decent yet average decks, but didn’t perform too well, had a couple of bad draws. A poor end to my Strixhaven premiere draft run

  • Throwing away gems on Strixhaven draft(s?)! https://www.twitch.tv/twitchyroy #mtg #magicarena #twitch #mtgstrixhaven

    Internet was weird today so stream was on and off. Probably won’t have the full episode on YT (maybe just the last few matches). But spoiler alert: I was able to break my unlucky streak with some Quandrix + Prismari goodness!

    Okay, I was able to record the draft itself locally, so this draft has two videos. In order:

  • Wednesday afternoon Strixhaven draft(s?)! https://www.twitch.tv/twitchyroy #mtg #magicarena #twitch #strixhaven

    Had a great draft! I went Quandrix+Prismari and managed to go 7-2. Very explosive. One of those losses was actually due to the server giving me a defeat without even going to a match, so I might even get reimbursement!

  • Thursday afternoon Strixhaven draft(s?)! https://www.twitch.tv/twitchyroy #mtg #magicarena #twitch #mtgstrixhaven

    Went Silverquill, only finished 4-3, mostly due to a really bad misplay on my part in the last game. Decent outcome, but could have been better. I did manage to rare-draft a lot though lol

    Only one draft this session, but I had a lot of fun! Mostly because it was my first 7-win of the season, but also because I drafted an insane quandrix deck with the other 3 colors splashed, and won 3 games off Approach of the Second Sun. I never got to activate codie though!

  • Friday afternoon Strixhaven sealed! https://www.twitch.tv/twitchyroy #mtg #magicarena #MTGStrixhaven #twitch

    Ended up with a 3 hour stream doing 1 sealed and 1 draft. Didn’t finish too well, only went 4-3 in sealed with silverquill and 3-1 in draft with lorehold, but it’s a decent enough start. I like the set so far and looking forward to trying out the other houses!

  • 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

    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

  • All Saints Day Zendikar Rising draft (final episode) https://www.twitch.tv/twitchyroy #mtg #magicarena #twitch #mtgznr

    So I think the draft itself was fine, but spoiler: the outcome was terrible! Bonus: A couple of Eternal matches!
