  1. A guide for players who want to upgrade the Vivien of the Arkbow Planeswalker Deck on a budget. We ultimately spend less than $15 USD, and you can bet you'll win a ton more games with this build over what comes in the box! -------------------------------------------- More Planeswalker Deck upgrades: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLZX5Ly_QRoO08mxNvWMe55IrOFbaFBRRn Subscribe: https://www.youtube.com/c/AffinityforMTG?sub_confirmation=1 Twitter: https://twitter.com/AffinityForMTG Outro: Jahoda by Djjaner -------------------------------------------- #VivienoftheArkbow #PlaneswalkerDecks #MagictheGathering Background music provided by Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 License http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ This video is unofficial Fan Content permitted under the Fan Content Policy.

  2. The problem with that is it still COSTS the same as a regular draft. People want to play their Arena decks, but with the best-of-3 format of FNM, because Arena is cheaper and Bo3 is superior. I'm sure they could. They could also totally just do an off-the-record event and it wouldn't matter at all. But the store owner is super chill and not likely to do anything shady.
  3. I would much prefer to play paper magic at an LGS as well, however, I'm one of the ones that is priced out of the game. I lose games to my mana bases all the time, something that is less of an issue online since I have all the Shock and Checklands I need for my standard deck. Modern is even worse, I can't afford to dump $1,000 into a modern deck and, if Modern ever comes to Arena, I could probably use wildcards to get an okay deck together fairly quickly, and then have a REAL deck instead of the budget deck I use to get my ass kicked with every time I play modern in paper.
  4. There was an interesting conversation at my LGS tonight at FNM and I thought I'd share it here. We were playing Standard, but as is often the case there was a lot of chatter about Arena. One of the players brought up the idea of hosting an "Arena" FNM, where people could bring in their laptops and play Arena, with entry fees and prizes. The idea would be to use the same matchmaking system as regular events, but when people got matched up they'd Direct Challenge each other on Arena, play their match, and then report the results...just like any paper event. Clearly there is an issue with sideboarding between games, that's something that will need to be figured out. Possibly writing down and registering sideboards before the event. The owner didn't want to commit to it because I think he was unsure about WPN rules, certainly it would be a no-no for an official FNM. He said he'd contact WOTC though, and if he gets the all-clear, people could very well be playing unofficial (unsanctioned) Arena events at my LGS, complete with entry fees and prize packs. The prevailing logic among the people that were talking about it was "I have tier 1 decks on Arena, but I can't afford to spend $400+ on paper decks." As is so often the case, people are driven away from the game due to the price of cards, but Arena fixes that for so many people. So what do you guys think? Would you go to an FNM to play Arena events? Is this the future of Magic? I mean, MTGO has been around for more than a decade, but enthusiasm for Arena is off the charts.
  5. Someone on Twitter pointed out that Fblthp is in the art for Captive Audience. XD
  6. First off, the livestream where they announced these just happened and I wasn't able to watch, so details are sketchy, but: 1.Mythic Edition is back! This isn't interesting to me at all, but I know some people were enthusiastic, so there's that! Full article: https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/news/ravnica-allegiance-mythic-edition-2019-01-10 It will actually be sold through the Hasbro shop on EBAY to avoid the disastrous launch of the previous one, and will be available worldwide. 2.Challenger decks will be return in April, and they will still be sold at $29.99 MSRP! 3. The 3rd set in the Ravnica block has been teased. It seems to be titled "War of the Spark," or at the very least, that's the tagline. You can see it here: https://magic.wizards.com/en/products/coming-soon
  7. For that special person you really hate in your EDH/Commander group.

  10. Wow! Haven't seen something like this in awhile! A 4-mana wrath without an obnoxious drawback. Heck, it actually has an up side! Though I suppose the mana cost is a bit awkward. Still, pretty decent!
  11. I think you're right! Bummer!
  12. Interesting new hand disruption spell for black. It's technically better than Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek if you cast it for it's Spectacle cost, but that's going to be difficult to trigger and probably not possible on turn 1. Plus it costs a full 3 to cast normally. I doubt it'll see a ton of play, but it's interesting. And this is cool too. Another Gravecrawler/Dread Wanderer type of card.
  13. Well, if you liked the Elf Ooze, it appears as though there is also an...ELF LIZARD WIZARD.
  14. Assemble the Legion is something that I keep wanting to try to build around, but it's SOOO bad. I think the only way to make it work is to get value out of the tokens as they enter the battlefield, something like Impact Tremors, but ideally something that can kill your opponent's creature. Maybe just giving them deathtouch somehow would work. You just REALLY need a way to protect yourself for a few turns after you play it. Prison might be an option as well, anything to look down your opponent long enough for the card to build up counters.
  15. Also, some more legendary creatures! Teysa is a Panharmonicon that triggers on creatures dying, Vannifar is an Eldritch Evolution-esque toolbox-enabler, and Rakdos is...fun? I'm not gonna lie, I'm kind of disappointed in Rakdos, I really wish it only hit your opponent's creatures.
