    I want my meaty planeswalker-hunter boy back.

    I would lose my mind if like, right in the middle of the next big fight between our core 5 walkers and Bolas, Garruk shows up, grabs Liliana and 'walks away and the gang is just like, "Oh, well, fuck us, then."

    At least once a day, when I'm playing with Selesnya Tokens on Arena, I have an opponent cast a Viashino Pyromancer while I have a Shalai in play. There's a pause, Shalai is highlighted, Pyromancer is highlighted, and then my opponent concedes.
    To be fair, Shalai is just a great big NOPE to Burn decks. Unless they have a lava coil they're kinda boned.

    To take this further, Boros Angels totally destroys burn decks. Shalai + Lifegain = well nope.

    I think the concept is that it's supposed to be a facsimile of Ith's brain and Ith's brain is so fucking confusing to himself that it's enough to just warp someone's shit for a day.

    Man, my limited hubris came back to bite me.

    Just did 3 Arena drafts this week where the few wins I scraped were tooth and claw affairs and every loss was a ROFLstomp affair with multiple mulls to 5 or less and opponents c-c-combo breaking like they were getting paid to hunt me.

    Did 2 Dominaria drafts and had 3(!) games involving T3 Chainwhirler and 2 involving T4 Zahid.

  • KayKay What we need... Is a little bit of PANIC.Registered User regular
    I need to get back into drafting on Arena. I tried it a few times and it just felt super-off and weird to me.

    As soon as GRN is back on quickdraft, I'll do a bunch of 'em and see if it has changed.

    I had one of those draft wins where you just feel bad about how your curve works out

    t2 - Elfhame Druid
    t3 - kicked Untamed Kavu
    t4 - kicked Saproling Migration

    I'd almost forgotten that the Druid had a second ability.

    Man, it sure is a neat coincidence that Arena's rise in prominence and popularity also happens to come during one of few recent times that standard is fun.

    One might go so far as to argue that Arena being popular is in no small part because standard is good right now.

    Also, a few of the top decks are mono-color and relatively light on rares.

    3clipse
  • KayKay What we need... Is a little bit of PANIC.Registered User regular
    Mono-Red runs like, 12 rares and a couple of mythics.

    Mono-Blue runs 4 rares and some uncommons.

    Izzet Drakes runs 8 rares (all lands) and 4 mythics.

    Mono-white runs 8 rares and 4 mythics, I think? (Benalish Marshall, Legion's Landing, History of Benalia?)

    Golgari and any control deck run omgwtf mythics.

    And here I am with my 20-Rare, 11-Mythic GW Tokens mainboard. Although if I could assemble all that for free, it makes me wonder why I would spend money on Arena?

    Had an interesting time at Modern last night with Abzan Aristocrats, though. I almost survived the second Emrakul of the game. Turns out Rally the Ancestors interacts with it really interestingly. "Oh, Annihilator 6? Why thank you, I was having trouble finding a Viscera Seer!"

    Armoroc
  • astrobstrdastrobstrd So full of mercy... Registered User regular
    It does take quite a bit of grinding to assemble all that "for free". Plus if you want to draft more than once or twice a week without running hot, that's cash dropped as well.

    Welp. Firewheeler won't see play in my Rakdos deck. Phoenix is just straight up better in the 4 slot.

  • PinfeldorfPinfeldorf Realtor Santa ClaritaRegistered User regular
    Just note that "put a land into play" is not the same thing as "play a land", but I believe that only impacts older cards like Horn of Greed.

  • milskimilski Their Will comes, at last, to Earth, to the Neath, as a storm crosses the sea. Registered User regular
    The standard relevant reasons why you'd rather have "play an extra land this turn" rather than "put a land in play" are basically just Crucible of Worlds or if you're casting it purely to cantrip and hit another cantrip that hit you a land.

    High, cold, eternal, immobile, minuscule. You endure; you burn.
  • KayKay What we need... Is a little bit of PANIC.Registered User regular
    The way Growth Spiral is worded allows you to not only play a land on their turn, but also allows you to play a land if you draw it from the cantrip.

    Given that it's in simic, this allows you to hold up counters, cast this if you don't need to, etc. It's good.

    Also glad someone caught my reference~
