  1. The Magic Arena client has gotten progressively worse over the last few months, degrading to the point where it is barely playable for more than 30 minutes at a time and frequently crashes or bugs out. Mythic Championship V is happening this weekend, which is an Arena tournaments, and unfortunately the buggy client has reared its ugly head during the proceedings. Hipsters of the Coast wrote a short article about it, you can read it here: https://www.hipstersofthecoast.com/2019/10/mtg-arena-crashes-affect-some-mythic-championship-v-matches/ Some pro players talking about the bugs:

  3. A guide for players who want to upgrade the Rowan, Fearly Sparkmage Planeswalker Deck on a budget. We ultimately spend less than the retail price of this deck (roughly $15 USD), and you can bet you'll win a ton more games with this build over what comes in the box!

  4. WOTC announced a new UN- products, Unsanctioned! It's not a full set, but a battle box of sorts with a few preconstructed decks designed to be played against each other. There will, however, be 16 new UN-cards designed for the box. Full article; https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/news/announcing-unsanctioned-2019-10-10
  5. The problem with old packs is the price of the packs settle at about the same price as the EV of the cards inside them. So, while it's true that some sets have incredibly expensive cards, those cards are often found in incredibly expensive packs. Dawnglare tracks the EV of sets, and you'll find that it's almost always lower than the price you'll pay for the sealed product. https://mtg.dawnglare.com/?p=sets
  6. Now that Throne of Eldraine has caused a lot of sets to rotate out of Standard, is the Lightning Aggro deck playable at all? It would seem not, at first, however after doing a bit of digging I think this deck might be salvageable! At the very least, you can probably spend a few dollars on it and play it in the meantime until the Standard metagame settles down.

  8. Yeah, I get weird stuff like this from time to time. I want to say it's confirmation bias, especially since I don't have any of those "smart home" devices and basically don't text at all. The weirdest was when I had a pair of headphones break on me, after having been taped for months. I had a verbal conversation with someone that I needed to buy a new pair, and that I was going to stick with the exact model because I liked them so much, and then suddenly started getting targeted Amazon ads for Monoprice headphones - the very brand of the headphones I used. I didn't actually mentioned the brand of the headphones in that conversation either. But again, could be confirmation bias. It's possible I had received those ads in the past and skipped right over them without thinking about it, and only noticed it when it was relevant.

  11. I've really been churning through these, we're almost all caught up on every World Championship deck ever! Anyway, here is Abzan Control, the deck that won in 2015. It plays a TON of removal and board control and then finishes the game with Siege Rhino. Check it out!

  14. Got another World Championship deck tech for you guys! Sidisi Whip is a Sultai Reanimator deck that was actually a fair, mid-range deck that used reanimation to go wide with tokens. It's quite different from the usual "cheat a massive threat into play" style of reanimator you might be used to. Check it out!
