  1. Has anyone tried No Man's Sky Next? I'm hearing some really positive feedback from it after the last big update.
  2. I don't mind Thoughseize as much as the others you mentioned, although it would be nice not having it. Whenever you're looking over decklists for non-Standard formats (hell, even Pauper) you always consider Lightning Bolt.
  3. What cards are you all looking out for or digging out of boxes to sell off now that Pioneer is gaining traction? Lots of my old lands that I thankfully kept in binders will see some sunlight again, thanks to this format. I've mostly been on the lookout for lands, they seem to be most likely to hold their value even after bans. A channel I've been keeping up with is Hero's and Legends, they stay pretty up to date on finance stuff
  4. Banning part of the Copy Cat deck is going to have an impact on card prices for sure.
  5. Haven't tried it, but for a table top game all that for $70 isn't bad!
  6. That's very true about RTR era cards, the costs are low.
  7. Frontier was an unofficial format that was from Magic Origins on. It was popular for a while but kind of faded away. People were asking Wizards to make it official, but they never really acknowledged it (from what I remember). It's a little funny that they create their own format so similar to it now that it's been two or three years since the popularity of Frontier was at it's peak.
  8. They were trying too hard to catch up with Hearthstone instead of just starting slow and building from it. And nope, they never learn. Focus on what you do best, instead of spreading yourself too thin.
  9. So, it's Frontier basically? I'm not a fan of so many formats, it waters down the existing formats and almost prevents them from reprinting cards later that people are avoiding by going to the new format (fetches).
  10. I'm happy to get more Un cards, but it would be better to get another full set.
  11. The idea of buying old sealed packs is fun. Nostalgia and potentially some expensive cards to pull because of the print runs not being nearly what they are today. Do you ever buy old sealed packs?
  12. Does anyone else use Telegram? I started using it and am impressed with the features it has.
  13. I think certain (most?) apps are listening. Facebook owns Whatsapp so I don't trust it. Recently my wife and I have noticed that after we have a conversation about something we need to buy the ads start popping up for those products. Even if we never searched for the product anywhere, there it is. At my nephue's tattoo parlor he has an Amazon Echo that he uses to stream music in the shop. We've talked about bands while the music is playing, and even if it's playing a totally different genre of music, it will start playing the band we just talked about. It was playing country music (meh) and we talked about the new TOOL album coming out. The next song was TOOL. I've been making a concious effort to stay away from anything Google and Facebook. Instead of using a google search, I use DuckDuckGo. Ditched Chrome as well.
  14. I really need to join your playgroup Great job!
  15. I'm lucky to not screw up a bowl of cereal, so I'll have to pass on this one. Are you going to give it a try?
  16. Even though Kitchens was the OC last year, it's still kind of a new coaching staff. They need time to adjust to the new day to day routine.
  17. It's still pretty hot here, 80 - 90 degrees. I try to wear long sleeves to avoid getting so sun burnt.
  18. Pretty sure I've mentioned before that I've been mountain biking and cycling a lot more for almost the last year. For fun I started using a GoPro on my rides, and even though the camera angle is a little wonky and my editing skills are lacking I created a YouTube channel to share them. So, they are pro quality but it's fun. If any of you are interested in what the trails I frequent here in N.M.:
  19. Still working on camera angles and video quality, but I hope to post a few videos here and there when I can or when they are worth sharing. From what I understand there's some pretty good trails in Florida. Check out the Trailforks app, it's an easy way to find stuff around you.
  20. By week 4 I'm usually hoping they don't run the table in reverse and end up 0 - 16 but they've played some bad teams and will get creamed by the Pats next week. Browns aren't looking so hot
  21. Oh, man.
  22. Return to Theros? Sounds like it could be fun. I thought Theros was a bit of a missed opportunity. Zendikar again? I loved the original Zendikar, but let's stop returning to planes over and over. There are other more interesting planes I'd rather revisit. Behemoths sounds interesting.
  23. I've been goofing off with cards from old sets, trying to build decks from cards I have laying around with mechanics that are set specific. I started a boros Battalion deck and it's shaping up to be pretty decent (for casual play). After a couple of games I realized a lot of the cards are common, anyone ever tried a Battalion deck?
  24. Article can be found here: https://dotesports.com/mtg/news/former-wotc-employee-calls-out-poor-magic-the-gathering-practices For most players who are paying attention and honest with themselves this isn't really a surprise. What does surprise me is how quickly they fold to pressure from the "community"
