    Ah, yeah. I didn't think Solforge was a big success, but it engaged me for the time it did because it was neat.

    So far Eternal isn't getting me because... rather than having the pros of magic and the pros of Hearthstone, it feels more like it has the cons of both. It has the scaled down-ness of Hearthstone, but not the perfect streamlining quickness and "fun." One of the things that makes Hearthstone work is the Legendaries, fancy cards with fun interplay elements that sort of "break the rules."

    It may still just be the early Eternal stuff and not having a tuned enough set/deck, but a lot of the gameplay feels to me like Magic-lite in the low carb, low flavor sense.

    I need to try some asynch draft. That might improve things.

    What is this I don't even.

    Hmm. I guess I don't see most of the scaled-downness, at least relative to Magic Standard. It hasn't lost much in the core mechanics while adding weapons and the digital-only mechanics like permanent card buffs and status changes. Not to mention a much better mulligan system. I also like threshold a lot better than the Magic system.

    Ultimately Magic doesn't even enter into it for me because it has effectively no digital presence. I play paper Magic in a variety of forms and that's enough for me.

    So the choice ultimately comes down to Hex vs Eternal and every time I've hit Hex I've been bounced by the systems around the game (and the mediocre client). Plus, Hex is made by a company I don't like whereas Eternal is made by a bunch of people I do.

    i would generally say that most people would say the most rampant deck in eternal's meta is variants on B/R aggro, with armory coming in second

    I was gonna be excited about the lack of armory nerfs, but based on this morning's results they've nerfed my draws into the fucking ground.

    while armoury didn't eat any direct nerfs i think there's a decent number of decks that have strong game against armoury that folded to Jito or Stonescar Burn, and softening those decks can allow those anti-armoury decks to flourish

    And because I'm a sucker and can't stop playing DCGs I just threw $20 at the kickstarter.

    One time, I had a friend over to play a bit of Red Alert on my LAN. During the game he said he needed to go to the bathroom, so we paused it. After about 10 minutes of wondering where the hell he went, I get up and go to check on him.

    Turns out he was trying to screw my dog.
    Once I was taking a poop at a restaurant and a kid crept underneath the door into my stall. I let out a big fart and then he threw up all over the floor in front of me and I just stared at him.
