So there's this game right? Where you fiddle around with some pieces of cardboard with pretty pictures printed on them and there are like creatures and spells and shit. Also the pretty pictures on the pieces of cardboard are worth money or something?

    Also, I don't know why I keep calling it Alms for the Poor.

    The deck name is Alms for the Rich.

    And I like that better anyways.

    If you ban me I will curse you do every pack you open just has Biovisionaries.

    I bought two packs the other day and got a Sacred foundry and a junk rare.

    That's a win, right?

    probably because of "Alms, alms for the poor!" beggars.

    yeah I'm sure that cockatrice is really cutting into the mountain of cash that M;tG:O generates on a daily basis

    they're just going to keep shutting down these servers just for someone else to start up another one a month or two later. it's not a hard thing to do, and companies would just be better off recognizing that and shrugging but we do not live in that world

    I love Combo and Reanimator in basically all their forms. I have a Karador EDH deck with reanimation combos in it!

    Also, drafted what I thought was a sweet Orzhov deck tonight, but ended up going 1-2. Booo and hiss. Didn't draw Ogre Slumlord once. That guy is pretty good!.

    Let me try:

    Geth, give Kwoaru a hug and a Gatecrash booster pack containing a foil Biovisionary

    After another (0-2) swiss draft, i realize that i am not good in this format. It also sucks when some dude dropped because then i don't get the full three games of magic.

    I like drafting, it just sucks when you go against the guy who has been playing for years and knows how to draft that sweet boros aggro deck and he crushes you.

  • Zombie HeroZombie Hero Registered User regular
    I don't have any GTC cards, so i figured drafting is the best way to start building a deck. Draft here and there, then start trading for the cards i need once i know what i want to build.

    Notable rares:
    -alms beast
    -foil treasury thrull
    -biovisionary (whooo late rare draft)
    -that dimir horror guy that lets you mill whenever you cast a spell

    unfortunately they almost all seem relegated to limited. Maybe start some sort of orzhov deck?

    Maybe just get blind obedience, alms beasts, a few more extort spells and tons of removal for a cheap deck?

    What kind of fog effects are standard? Maybe ill try to do a WGB fog extort deck. That seems dumb enough to feel good about the 10% of games it might win.

    Drafted again last night, went 1-2 with my pretty sweet dimir mill strategy

    Losses came to mana screw then mana flood and a guy who dropped Giant Adaphage both games we played

    Drafted crap rares and prize pack contained a (drumroll please) Whispering Madness! Wah wah waaaaah

    In other news after looking at the list I have decided to build the aristocrats as I have most of the pieces already. All I need is 3 more Falkenrath's and the mana base

    I just need to get enough of something so that the deck I build actually has a thing to do

    5 things with extort is not a good orzhov deck

  • IpseDixitIpseDixit Treat me like a pirate And give me that bootyRegistered User regular
    Dimir mill

    Get yourself some Sage's Row Denizens, some Mortus Striders and some Corpse Blockades or Undercity Informers

    Then get yourself some Paranoid Delusions and something unblockable

    Mindgrind and Consuming Aberation are the bombs you really really want but probably won't get

    also somebody confirm for me that booster draft decks do not have the same 4-of-a-card limit that constructed decks do

    because it feels like bullshit when playing a guy who got 7 shamblesharks

    I was also surprised to learn this (but yes, everything I saw on a cursory google search said that you can use as many copies of a card as you want in a booster draft).

  • STATE OF THE ART ROBOTSTATE OF THE ART ROBOT Registered User regular
    So I got 15 boosters today because it was payday and why the fuck not?

    Results:

    2 Biovisionary
    2 Mind Grind
    1 Legion Loyalist
    1 Gyre Sage
    1 Alms Beast
    1 Thespian's Stage
    1 Rubblehulk
    1 Treasury Thrull
    1 Undercity Plague
    1 Sylvan Primordial
    1 Borborygmos Enraged

    and the good stuff:

    1 Domri Rade
    1 Obzedat, Ghost Council

    Not the best out of 15 packs but the two hits are really nice.

  • KwoaruKwoaru Registered User regular
    cool

    I don't like that rule right now but I will when somebody passes me 7 of some bullshit cheap thing

    that particular rule is outlined absolutely nowhere on the wizards mtg website as far as I can tell, none of their articles on drafting mention it, the formats page doesnt mention it, the comprehensive rules and tourney rules pages dont mention it

    so I just wanted to be sure

    does it extend to sealed/the rest of limited as well or just draft?

    2x39jD4.jpg
  • IpseDixitIpseDixit Treat me like a pirate And give me that bootyRegistered User regular
    Yes in sealed and draft you can play as many copies of a card as you like

  • PinfeldorfPinfeldorf Realtor Santa ClaritaRegistered User regular
    The 4-of rule doesn't participate in limited because otherwise you can't get retarded sealed pools.

    Like my Golgari prerelease pool on MTGO with five Dreg Manglers.

    Of note, I also had a draft a couple weeks ago with 6 Basilica Screechers. I won that draft.

    You guys who are new to drafting, etc., seriously check out the videos on channelfireball.com from Luis Scott-Vargas. He is good at explaining what cards are good in what decks and when and why. He's got 4 Gatecrash drafts up, and he's only majorly punted the drafting section in one of them.

    Built a pretty fun standard mill deck using Sage Row Denizens, Consuming Aberrations, and Faerie Imposters.

  • KilroyKilroy timaeusTestified Registered User regular
    I have a modern mill deck that uses Halimar Excavators, Jwari Shapeshifters, Agadeem Occultists, Balustrade Spies, and Consuming Aberrations

    I've never played it in a tournament but it's pretty nasty in casual play

    I would dump it pretty soon though, 'cause I don't think that price is going to last once the new set rush is over.
