  1. Let's see what we can find in our Buy-A-Box Promo Pack!
  2. Yeah! They definitely have some similarities, but ours was "all-in" on the "constellation" mechanic, whereas @Affinity for MTG was able to branch out and get some great value from cards without the keyword printed on them. Love Eidolon of Countless Battles and Rally the Ancestors in his build. Affinity's also has the benefit of being modern-legal- we assumed casual play and used Daxos' Torment, which isn't playable in Modern. Also, if you're willing to "break" the $5 budget, I think Cast Out is great in both decks (replacing oblivion ring/banishing light, etc), since it counts as an enchantment and lets you interact at instant speed. Here is our Constellation deck tech in case anyone else missed it:
  3. I really don't think Gideon is that obnoxious. I play him in my Modern deck, and more often than not I don't even bother embleming, because if I'm losing, he is so easy to kill, and if I'm winning, I don't need the emblem. I can't think of one time when the emblem has saved me the game. Some other planeswalkers' emblems are worse, and are designed to be win conditions. I do wish some planeswalkers weren't game ending- I prefer the incremental advantage engines like Saheeli or Samut. I think Mark Rosewater has said before that the point of emblems are that you can't interact with them. Think of it like this: emblems are to enchantments what the exile zone is to the graveyard. It's added design space in the game that gives them a way to essentially print enchantments that can't be removed. -Paul
  4. Thanks for all the support @Lasraik!! We were truly blown away by the number of responses.
  5. Today we open the first half of our Ixalan booster box! 9 packs each, and today we find a couple mythics and a foil rare! Don't miss out on today's pulls. If you enjoyed the video, we would really appreciate you "liking" the video and subscribing to our channel!
  6. I agree it's a flavor fail, and I think Mark Rosewater does too, but his philosophy was to put gameplay ahead of flavor if it clashed. I guess I don't see how this improves gameplay other than condensing two rules into one.
  7. This is fantastic. We used to dabble in song parodies and can't wait to hear these!
  8. Re: flip cards - they appear in the rare slot in this set.
  9. "The Monopoly of playing Magic" Best, most accurate description of Commander I've ever read!!!! (Spoken as an occasional commander player)
  10. Oh ok, cool. What don't you like about it? My main modern deck is blue-white Emeria Titan. I love the deck, play it all the time, and have a blast, win or lose. Lately I've been getting into Naya Allies, which is super aggro (the opposite of Emeria). It's also super fun. I think CoCo Allies runs around $400 right now, but Emeria is maybe $250? And it's easy to start that one in mono white for much cheaper.
  11. In this video, we say goodbye to Hour of Devastation by opening 3 packs and discussing what we'd pick in draft. Let us know what your picks would have been!
  12. That sounds awesome!!! Can't wait to see it. Love the idea for LGS profiles. Bonus points if you can hit one on a busy night.
  13. Love the write up. Great reminder of why I love modern so much. You played some really solid decks. To be honest, Merfolk isn't an archetype I see around very often, but it seems like you know the deck well and play it well. Love seeing a deck like that take down some respected and widespread decks in the format.
  14. Love the idea of organizing by format instead of set. Saves a lot of trouble when it comes to shuffling things around. I won't be putting all the rares in, just the ones that are valuable or playable in certain formats. Ha, awesome! I don't think I could do this. I enjoy organizing too much by nature that I'd go crazy if there wasn't some rhyme or reason. That's why I had to post this first instead of just jumping into organizing the new binder!
  15. Just got a sweet new Monster binder for rares and trade items. How do you all organize those?
