    That's because Reach and Trample are only good if you're attacking OR blocking, while Vigilance is good if you're attacking AND blocking, and would likely make it waaaaaay undercosted.

    Does anyone here use any collection management software/websites? I could create a giant spreadsheet but researching current pricing (and continually updating it) would be a long term problem as opposed to just a one time workload of cataloging everything.

    Didn't say it was wrong. Said it was odd. At no point did I ever say that I disliked the card.

    Interestingly, this exact keyword combination has been done exactly once before (ignoring Soulflayer and Cairn Wanderer): Archweaver.

    We also have Hero's Downfall and Silumgar's Command so planeswalkers aren't safe on the battlefield either.

    Well yeah, just meant that planeswalkers are the only cards that get hit by all three discard spells.

    This set is looking a lot like Rise of the Eldrazi.

    In a good way, without some of the characteristics I personally hated about RoE.

    "Truly free to play model, so no microtransactions here. All you're going to be doing is playing to earn coins or you can pay for those coins and speed up the process."

    So...you don't know what that word means.

    Though this is the form of microtransactions I really don't care about. So long as the coin earn rate isn't ridiculous I'm fine with this.

  • KalTorakKalTorak Way up inside your butthole, Morty. WAAAAY up inside there.Registered User regular
    i think they meant no microtransactions in that no part of the game is only accessible via microtransactions.

    I would think anything in the DS family or Wii U should be, thanks to having a separate (touch) screen for your hand, leaving the other screen free for the playfield and effects. But DotP has never been released on a Nintendo console so who knows.

  • KalTorakKalTorak Way up inside your butthole, Morty. WAAAAY up inside there.Registered User regular
    Android is a big part of the market partly because it goes on like a billion different devices with different specs. Probably easier to keep it to just iPads.

    thanks, i'll check that out.

    regarding origins: so this is the duels of the planeswalkers replacement? i assume that means the content in limited (as in number of sets and cards available)? i've never played duels so i don't even know if you have competitive play.

    Yeah, this will be Magic: Duels: Origins: Colons, the new direction Duels is taking.

    I wouldn't call it competitive, but there's certainly no problems getting a game going. There are some 350-ish cards in Duels 2015, so often it's pretty easy to guess the playstyle of the opponent's deck after you've seen him play a few cards.

    80% of the device market, but like 5 or 10% of the app-buying market. Combine that with the extra work it takes to develop an app on Android and it's just not worth it for most companies.

  • RedDawnRedDawn Registered User regular
    I did my first non phantom draft, and I went 2 and 1 (one was a disconnect though), so I'm pretty excited about that. I also got a Sorin and Siege Rhino so I really can't complain.

    In constructed I can never seem to get my lands going right, I either keep a 2 lander and never get any more land, or I get 5 lands in hand and then keep drawing more land. It is getting very frustrating. I have tried running anywhere between 20 and 24 lands to try and fix the issue, but nothing seems to work.

    20 lands is very, very low. Remember 17-18 is what your running in Limited with a 40 card deck. 20 is far too low for a 60 except in extreme corner cases like Boss Sligh (which will run as low as 17) that often top out in curve at 2 mana - maybe 3 if they are running Rabblemaster.

    Jeskai Tokens and Abzan Aggro are also fairly low curve aggressive decks and they run 24-25.

    Once you hit more midrangey or control decks, your talking anywhere from 25 up to 28.

    I don't know what your deck looks like @RedDawn but I'd guess you are simply running too few lands.

    Most of my decks have a super low mana curve, I think one of the decks I was using topped out at 4 or 5 mana.

  • TheLawinatorTheLawinator Registered User regular
    In constructed that is actually a medium-high curve. I play a deck that tops out at 3 and sometimes I go, "Oh man, those cost so much"

    Having a ton of land is absolutely a better problem to have than having no land. Something to keep in mind!

    On the flip side, if a game goes long enough without either player doing anything, being mana screwed is better than being mana flooded. At least when you're screwed and start drawing lands you have a ton of action in your hand instead of having a ton of bricks and just hoping to topdeck something relevant.

    Certainly adds value to the creature generators but I worry it's not as versatile as having the ability to bolt your face or your creatures like with Lightning Strike (which is almost certainly what I'd remove, as I don't want to cut any more spells to make dudes than I have to).

  • KalTorakKalTorak Way up inside your butthole, Morty. WAAAAY up inside there.Registered User regular
    My first thought with tokens decks is Purphoros, but with Ascendencies the tremors is probably better, since you'll get triggers off of it.

    What about Secure the Wastes?
