    And there it is. The Giga-Scoop for Gateway.


    The product page for Update & Gateway has been... well, updated, with the DTC and MPC links if you want to get them printed, or the PDF's if you want to "acquire" the office printer to do it yourself.

    And so, with Gateway dropping, SanSan and Honor & Profit are officially rotated from Standard, as well as Salvaged Memories goes back to the hell it crawled out of.

    System update is like the backbone of my favorite decks, with new art.

    Such familiarity.. such warmth.

    Think I made an opponent rage quit after I flatlined them.

    I misread or didn't understand the format he wanted to play, so I guess my deck was illegal (too many formats, and startup isn't a recognized one yet?) and flatlined him. I'm trying to learn! He wanted Gateway+Update, I guess I chose a Startup deck that had cards from the Uprising cycle.

    I played all day yesterday running a couple of Startup format decks I threw together and had a fantastic time. Loup is so sick, I love getting tempo for doing a thing I want to do anyway

    I know jinteki exists but I really wish there was a dedicated app for this game so I could play it with people I know who don’t want to go to all that trouble

    I never get to play this because nobody I know locally in Nowhere, TX is into it, and jinteki is just so disconnected-feeling, which is antithetical to the enjoyment I get from playing

    You could say that about any FFG game.

    I also say it about Dire Wolf, who digitize everything except their own products.

    I think people vastly underestimate how much work and resources it takes to make a polished app for a card game.

    Hell, Wizards can't do that, and they have billions of dollars of gambling dollars behind it.

    Oh I know it would be a huge undertaking, and not really practical

    Anyway, I want it

    I can’t tell if this is a diss at Magic Arena or not.

    Tabletop Simulator has mods for this, which while probably worse play wise than jinteki might be more approachable?

    Standard ban list update dropped today:

    The changes:
    Slot Machine is banned.
    Engram Flush is banned.
    Fairchild 3.0 is banned.
    Game Changer is banned.
    Mass Commercialization is banned.
    Government Takeover is banned.

    The article goes into more depth into the reasoning behind those choices.

    It actually slipped my mind, but back in May there was a little one that took out Violet Level Clearance as well. Figure I might as well get that in here for completeness.

    So I never played the original…

    Is now a good time to join in?

    It could be! Are there others in your area that are also playing? That's really going to be a good marker of worth, because while you certainly can play online for (completely) free, it is not the same experience.

    If you have others around you that would want to play, the Nisei (fan-run organization who took over the game after FFG stopped printing it) cards are a great place to start. Original FFG cards may be a bit more difficult or out-of-print, but most people that are still playing the game are using a lot of the Nisei cards, and they're designed to welcome new players to the game in a straight-forward manner. They're available as print-on-demand from Make Playing Cards and DriveThru Cards.

    The game is certainly still fun and a lot of people seem to be enjoying it - I know I do.

    I thought I replied to this, but naw, I don’t know anyone who plays a physical card game, and nor do I.

    I still might go for it and get enough to host a game night. Thanks for the reply!

    *kicks in the door*

    https://nisei.net/blog/announcing-borealis/

    Borealis, the next expansion and the first half of the Borealis Cycle, got announced today.

    No exact release date due to *gestures at world* but it’s chugging along. O&C and Mumbad will rotate out of Standard when it drops.

    Oh hey, now that we're back from the Holiday Forums break... SCOOOOOOPS!



    They're going to be talking more in the upcoming weeks about the upcoming release, but a few things to announce.

    The first half of the Borealis Cycle was re-named to Midnight Sun to help alleviate the confusion of a pack and a cycle sharing a name.

    Since it's getting closer, but still going to be a bit until it drops, they've decided to do another Booster Pack of seven cards (one from each faction) from the cycle to spice up Standard. Plans are for it to drop in February as a print & play.

    The first of which, a Shaper event, has had the text spoiled on the above link and it's a doozy.

    Looks like the Booster is getting bumped back into March…


    …but we get some scoops. As a treat.

    Man, I hope there's an anarch event that stops assets/resources from working, called stuck in the middle with you, and it's the suez cannal boat. Or something along those lines. A destroyed tanker is nice as well though.

    As of today, the Midnight Sun booster is officially out and legal …oh yeah, the Anarch preview is up as well, a new resource that likes to burn things.



    PDF’s for printing are there, but they’re still waiting on proofs from the POD printers to verify them before they can enable them there.

    The POD versions are up for the Booster Pack.



    Might be worth noting that the Booster Pack versions of the cards come in the extended-art promo frames, while the eventual full release of Midnight Sun will be in the normal ones. In case you need a excuse.
