[MTG] Standard Elk menace defeated. Elks still prevalent in other environments.

Magic: the Elkening is a fantasy trading card game from Wizards of the Coast that has been in continuous production for over 25 years. You can check out the official website for more information on the franchise as a whole, including articles on game design, strategy, and lore.

The game is played in a variety of formats, from those that can include nearly every card ever printed, to formats that only use sealed product for deck building, to formats that only use common cards. You can find information about all of the official formats here, and both a quick-start guide and the comprehensive rules here.
Here’s a quick rundown of the supported formats:
Vintage – Old Expensive Elks that occasionally kill you
Legacy – Old elks that have gone to live on a farm upstate; Trees and the people who get uncomfortably close to them are banned
Modern – Middle age elk
Historic - Arena only Elks, older than Definitely Not Elks, but not as expansive as Middle age elks or Old elks
Pioneer – New Elks
Standard – Definitely Not Elks
Brawl – Elk-less
Commander – A few elks
Pauper – Only bad elks
Historic - Arena elks

There are also tons of unofficial formats that are supported by communities both online and at your local gaming store.

Arena is the latest digital version of the game, utilizing a free-to-play model and currently supporting the Definitely Not Elks and Elk-less format and current limited formats, as well as some occasional digital-only formats/oddballs. You can download the game here.

Magic Online is the original digital Magic platform and is still the primary official way to play non-Standard constructed formats online. They also run cube and chaos drafts on MTGO. It looks like an elks butt, but it gives you the Elkening experience. You can download the client here.

If you're interested in competitive play, you can find information on the various levels of paper competitive play here. In addition to Wizards' own high-level tournaments, Star City Games runs their own national tournament series with large monetary prizes and Invitational, you can find information on their tournaments here. (Sorry, just need to go to the old thread to grab the links for this section because being an elk, I'm bad at copying and pasting.)

The most recent set is Throne of Eldraine. It’s about David Bowie going around and turning people into Elks.

Some other resources:
TCGPlayer.com can help you find the market values of cards before you make a purchase or trade. They also have an iPhone/Android app that allows you to scan cards and find their value/catalog them.
MTG Goldfish also has a price tracker feature with graphs, as well as articles on the game.
Gatherer is the official card search engine from WotC, featuring up-to-date oracle text, errata, format legality, and important rulings for every elk in the game.
Channel Fireball has a lot of articles on elks.

    If your brawl commander is oko then you deserve to stub your toe really hard while burning the top of your mouth on a pizza that isn't even that good while you bite the inside of your cheek.

    I've seen remarkably few Oko commanders in brawl so far. But I am running Nissa, so I'm only a step down the list in the "terrible person" rankings.

    The one good thing about brawl atm is no penalty for losing and can see enemy commander on loading screen.

    So can concede to Oko before mulligan.

    I beat Oko the one time I got paired up against it. They never cast Oko for whatever reason but hey.

    i do appreciate how horny oko is

    ohoho... i hope you don't eat one of my naughty little cakes, and turn into a sleek sexy elk, and then i will hypnotise you and ride you through the forest

    he sucks but at least he's funny. i want more of these fetish inspired cards, like where's the enchantment that turns you into a giant blueberry

    Arena does not support the Elks format. Although I'm sure Historic would be just as Elk-y if anyone cared about it.

    I think my pet project is going to be an abzan junk deck that uses kaya, vraska, and doom foretold to grind out an advantage and snag a kill with either walker or a few creatures ill be running. Possibly even the white castle as a finisher. Doom is already good against oko decks, kaya smokes geese and food tokens which also shuts off wolf, and vraska can just kill oko and work up to ulting so a small creature can end the game. I think elderspell could even be run at least sideboard to get lots of value.

    Flashback for creatures... and a planeswalker? I'm guessing it doesn't ignore timing restrictions.

    Those basics are nuts. They're not really my jam but I'm glad they exist.
    The whole set seems to take place in the Underworld. That makes me wish we had normal basic lands, too, but whatevs.

    I hope that's fake because that's a damn lame-ass Elspeth. I get that Flashback Walker is a big deal, but only minuses? Only one of which is remotely decent? Bah.

    Those are some pokemon-ass basics.

    The other designs are neat though.

    In other news, anyone know how Avatar of the Resolute interacts with Pelt Collector/Experiment one? Can you order the triggers in such a way that that the one drop gets the counter first so that the Avatar can "see" it and get its additional counter?

    Edit: Wait shit that's a "~ enters" rather than "when ~ enters", it's probably not even a trigger :c

    That Elspeth feels like it has to be a PW deck Walker but it definitely isn't.

    E: Not in terms of power necessarily (recursion could be extremely valuable) but in terms of having such individually weak abilities for the CMC and loyalty cost

    They might still have regular basics. Those spoiler ones scream pack in with some shitty promo box or in those "collectors" boosters or whatever they're called only.
