    I use the sleeping hedron when being roped. And now I mix in the sarcastic mind flayer too.

    EDIT: Speaking of beholders and mind flayers, I had a decent weekend:







    The red/white deck on Friday night was ridiculous. The other two were just fine.

    so is inferno of star's mount good ignoring the 14 red mana 20 damage thing? I'm not very good at evaluating cards, that part seemed useless but I don't know how to evaluate the rest of it.

    It's an uncounterable 6/6 flier with haste. The firebreathing is just chrome at that point. You topdeck it, they die

    Oh and there are like two instants that kill it.

    I played 5 rounds of sealed for 3k gems, and now I think I’m done with arena until the next set. Not really feeling this one, and not really feeling any of the formats on arena at present.

    I got a crazy WR deck with Bruenor and never drew him in a 6-3 run. Oh well!

    It smacks them upside the head for lots and eats most of their board... assuming they're even alive to attack back. And then it keeps doing it. 6 in the air ends games fast.

    Basically any flyer at 4/4 or bigger at a reasonable cost is a win condition in limited - they either have an answer or they die quickly.

    Unless you used treasures to splash it. Which would still be correct.

    yeah I'd say all the mythic dragons are worth playing in limited if you can, even the relatively poopy ones (green). Big flying beef is something that needs to be dealt with, fast.

    Especially with how hard to come by removal is in this set.

    And one of the better spot removal whiffs on dragons!

    and that Ward isn't nothing - the opponent has to 2 for 1 themselves to get rid of it, and if they're topdecking they're just plain out of luck

    I've been looking for ways to get it down either with haste and/or off a reanimator spell. Might try a Rakdos reanimator deck if I can make one work.

    I'm running at least 12 foretell cards (Doomskar, Saw It Coming, Alrund's Epiphany and Unleashed) in my blue white control decks right now and foretelling several times per game

    I wonder if it is worth trying to run an actual foretell focused deck in standard 2022. Niko Defies Destiny? Seems a bit slow sadly. Hmm. Shame. I wish there was a card that was like "whenever you cast a foretold spell, draw a card"

    Was basically a flash tribal deck in standard.
    Had the UW draw card/lifelink enchant and the sprite that gets +1/1 for second card.

    Hadn't really optimised for M22, and it played too slow for me anyway.

    I have to say, I wish the search feature when making a deck included reminder text. If I'm searching for "+1/+1 counter" it means I'm also interested in creatures with explore, fabricate, and the like.

    I had put Open the Vaults in a small order I placed earlier since it was just over $2. Resurgent Belief is a definite possibility as well given how cheap it is, thanks.

    I've got one more box of cards in the basement somewhere that I need to dig out. I know I have a Mana Vault in there, and I think a few Force of Wills, and given how many other useful cards I pulled from the box I had out there should be some more goodies. Just hopefully more that I can actually use - I pulled Balance and Limited Resources out to do something with, only to find they're both banned. But that's probably just saving me from my own worst tendencies - getting invited back to play again would be nice.

    Haven't located that box I was looking for, but I did find another with an unexpected haul of cards from sets that were released '95-'98 or so. Took a while to sort through it all, but it was worth it. Mostly commons and uncommons, but some very solid pieces I can add to decks. Enlightened Tutor, Mystical Tutor, Worldly Tutor, City of Solitude, City of Brass, Blue and Red Elemental Blasts, Gaea's Blessing, Gaea's Touch, Tithe, Sylvan Library, full sets of Urza's Lands, Adarkar Wastes and some other Ice Age lands, Royal Assassin and so on. Some silly stuff to play with like Shauku, Endbringer. Eladamri, Lord of Leaves is a very obvious add to beef up that Kaldheim elf deck and looks to be the most valuable of the lot.

    Is it safe to assume that any old elf cards I found have been updated or errata'd like Llanowar Elves? By which I mean changed from "Summon Elves" to "Creature - Elf X/Y/Z" so they would trigger/count towards various Elf abilities.

    Dropping back into Arena after a long break. I think all of my prior collection is out of standard at this point. But the games pretty generous about handing you cards. Went back through the tutorial colo challenges etc. Went 2-0 with a trashy mono white deck so I'm feeling invincible.

    Lots of new cards to read.

    Went to my first ever prerelease last night and had a blast! Pulled a Xanathar, two mind flayers, and a bunch of black and blue rogues. Went 2-1 with the deck I put together. Ran into some issues in the game I lost with actually drawing any of my big hitters or creature removal. Kept drawing lands or the rogues and my opponent kept getting his Inferno of star's mount out.

    Also, what does everyone use to track their collections/decks? I've used Delver Lens on my phone but I'm curious what everyone else uses.
