is this not fucking insane that this can happen to me in 3/5 games

i shouldn't play at all

this is what happens when you draft a stupid deck without 5 witching wells

new favorite thing is playing dumb aggro decks with white+, then slamming 'rule of law' because of how often people just concede

i'm convinced i can make this black/white aggro lifegain deck kind of work, but i found someone doing it better on this website that won some tourney last month with many similar cards but more midrange/lategame options deck with loads of lifegain. i don't really feel like spending 3+ lege mythic & 5+ rare crafts on this though

if rule of law is satisfying it's probably not because it's effective but rather precisely because it's not

i think the best budget options are things like azorius flyers (which im like 15-0 with in the artisan event), gruul smash, and rakdos sacrifice. i'd also personally advise just crafting one top tier standard stupid deck (i.e. OKO) and jam that constantly, but i also have excess wildcards that i will never have anything to do with now (130+ rares, 80+ mythics)

=====

thread: i tried just "playing eldraine for fun" but now that i have complete set collection on arena, there doesn't feel like much to play for, and losing because i drew 0 lands in 6 draws against people maindecking beloved princess, bartered cow, true love's kiss, yorvo, and hybrid uncommons all in one deck is infuriating, on top of repeatedly losing 1500 gems. i feel like i need something new and i'm considering a few options

1) mtgo. the innistrad/flashback stuff looks great but i'm kinda scared of having to invest to start up again. it doesn't look easy to "infinite" in mtgo, but neither was it in arena
2) i gave gods unchained a brief thought but it looks like it's played in browser, i care not for fiddling with etherium or whatever, and the game doesn't seem excessively legit
3) giving eternal another shake

rule was mostly just for when "i'm already a little ahead on board, and now you probably can't change that." but when it works, it's games that should be won anyway (unless it's played vs. that "draw your second card for fairies and buffs" decks it stops in its tracks)

thanks for the deck rec's. i'll be checking that flyers deck out, and i've been looking around at some other tournament ones but i'd need several more rares than i've got left for now. also i have a pretty low understanding of the field, so understanding why/when certain sideboard options would replace certain other cards are just completely beyond me (aside from specific hard-counter "hope i have it when i need it" cards)

sideboarding is generally confusing, i look up what other people do when getting a feel for a deck usually or just make it up on the fly

i dont really see how rule of law would ever do anything because it's the aggro deck who wants to cast multiple spells a turn. one board wipe and youre out lol and its just -1 card the entire time. control decks will also be responding with instants way more than you will

this mono drafting in limited is like cheating for eldraine

my mono white deck didn't even seem very good? and it's 4-0 since having 4-5 lands through turn 7 is just fine (16 in deck)

16 lands for a mono deck is like the standard 17 for dual colors

besides im trying to win with 2 or 12 lands on turn 7

i felt like i ran into this more after my "15 wins" of the day ran out. that was probably because i played over like 20-30 games in those 2 days it happened more, or it was the game telling me to log out.

maybe the new draft format with 0 lands will save you

this is becoming more and more impressive

i had 0 lands left in my deck at 15 cards

then swiftly lost the next two to folio on 2

seems kinda sick playing the worst formats of all time while drawing a 5%er every game interspersed with constant client disconnects/crashes

like yeah seems hilariously easy to beat folio on 2 when 7/12 of cards are lands, not to mention thats the third game (two diff opponents) in a row i got folio'd on two

i think i pissed richard garfield off ina past life becauase it seems the confluence of everything ever is against me right now and i don't know that i'm being exaggerative in the slightest

doubt anyone was wondering but i went from top 10 mythic, 70% winrate to last rank mythic, 40% winrate, and -15k gems/$100usd equivalent in a week which is impressive imo

I dunno if you guys have much experience with this, but what would you recommend I do if I want to get rid of a large collection of Magic cards? Most of them are from 1997-1999 with some random globs of stuff when I dipped back in every few years. Can you bring the whole thing to an FLGS and have them buy it off of you based on the rares and stuff?

i'd have someone with some knowledge go through and pull out any expensive stuff for you and list the rest as a lot. if you don't know anyone who is capable of doing that then going to an flgs is a good idea imo

My collection when I sold it on eBay in 2000, for something like $150-200. 10 revised dual lands, Mishra's Workshop, Italian Moat, FUCKING MORON. I definitely had a couple Force Of Will's too. Even worse was those dual lands were replacements for my original deck that was stolen and had probably another 8 in that. Also lol at me laying Hammer Of Bogardan and the other newer cards as if they were valuable.
