    Those 500 gems put me over 3400 gems. So now I need to figure out if I should buy this season's BP or next season's. Probably going to take this season's since I'll hit level 80 tomorrow and the pup is cute.

    That feeling when you draft Run Afoul twice and then use it in your first match, expecting it to sacrifice a creature without flying.
    But no. It's the opposite.

    After thinking, 'Why's this vampire getting attacked in the art then?'

    Vampires fly all the time. Not as frequently as they used to now that they've become a race rather than an iconic monster, sure, but there's still a few around.

    Also why would green get that effect?

    Also, my own, in keeping with the deck concept.

    And.. apparently at Diamond I get to inflict this deck on Mythics.
    So I guess that's a thing.

    How do you find the main deck 4-of Lurrus? That looks like a crazy value engine with the Omen.

  • discriderdiscrider Registered User regular
    Lurrus draws removal out from the opponent like nobody's business, so with an Omen or a second Lurrus in hand, you at least have the option of playing the cat early/on-curve without being too concerned about what happens next.

    Lurrus + graveyard Omen is also very good at drawing all the other creatures back out of the graveyard and into your hand.
    Then you can scry to put the Omen back, or just be filthy and sacrifice it to Doom Foretold.
    The ideal is to also have the archon in play and start spitting out Pegasi with the same cycle too.

    I should probably remove the Eilodons honestly and look at moving to limit the amount of dead cards against creature-less decks.

    I also want to try out Magnara over Doom Foretold, as the only reason Doom went in was Adventure decks.
    And Magnara's like 'your lucky clovers help me too now'

    Because apparently I only run stupid janky combo decks in Platinum, I'm now playing a Thousand Year Storm deck that uses Mythos of Illuna to copy TYS and copies Explore/Growth Spiral/Seasonal Ritual (Rosethorn Acolyte adventure) for lots of mana

    Every damned time. Fortunately for some of us limited solves this problem but I still hate this quest. It's the only one that relies on the contents of your opponent's deck.

    Also exiling doesn't count for some stupid reason. I run Leyline of the Void in a few decks and it just completely invalidates this quest.

    I just played against yet another draw-go deck

    this time it was Sultai that just wanted to counterspell, thoughseize, agonizing remorse, counterspell, etc until he cast Hydroid Krasis

    I killed his Krasis but that refilled his hand for more counterspells

    I've had a series of amazingly fun games the last few nights. People seem to have abandoned their meta beating netdecks for some more fun stuff at the end of the rotation/mastery pass and its so great to be engaged in ridiculous clashes of creatures, old style damage exchanges and careful adding up of power and toughness. Had my most fun game ever where a series of tiny lifelinking human 1/1 warriors held a 20/20 and growing Warden of Garrenbrig alongside a mass of giant green creatures at bay until I eventually got some Champions to stick and some ajani's and then slowly grinded my way back into the game until I played a march of the multitudes for 10, gained a ridiculous amount of life, and then killed the Warden with a fight spell. It was (oddly) a 25/25 healers hawk which killed it when it was 24/24. Best game ever. I do wish there was a 'game record' or something where you could put up a play by play that people could run inside the engine. I swear this game was ABSURDLY tense. They had so many awesome green tools, all firing really well, and this cool 'double up adventures' gimick but in the end it just wasn't quite enough when I got my board set up where every card game me more draw, more life and more creatures. I was so close to dead, I think I survived one round on 4 life or something.

    Oh I see how it is. Now that I've made a green stompy deck that deliberately metas against control decks, now I mirror against all the other green stompies in Historic.

    Fine, Arena. back to monoblack it is.

    Sleeves are the greatest temptation for me whenever they pop up in Daily Deals. This close to rotation I can usually fight it...

    Speaking of which I finished the M21 Master Pass at level 101. I did the Yargle Day event and I think there was a free level from a historic thing in there somewhere but other than that just quests and 15 wins/week. Still 100% F2P minus the codes I get from paper prerelease kits.
