    I have a video coming out tomorrow where I got my butt kicked by a UW Angel deck in Standard. They were using Bishop of Wings, Resplendent Angel, and Fountain of Renewal. With the Fountain and the Bishop, they were guaranteed to gain 5 life every time they played an angel, so every angel they played was accompanied by a 4/4 angel with flying and vigilance. Then they duplicated Resplendent Angel with Spark Double and things really got out of hand. XD
  4. I'm the same way! I've been gutting my collection on Cardsphere and converting cards I'm not playing into cards that I want to play. It seems logical, and I was able to convert about $300 worth of cards in my rare binder into cards for Tier 1 Affinity...but even though I have a few hundred dollars worth of cards I'm not using, every time I see someone wanting to buy them I find myself passing on the opportunity. For what reason? I don't know. I still need 2 Inkmoth Nexus and I could sell a couple more cards to get them, but every time I have a chance to sell and raise funds I choose to keep the cards instead.
  5. In 2012, WOTC technically ended the World Championship. They replaced it with the "Player Championship," and the format was the brand new Modern format that was created several months earlier. The change only lasted 1 year, as WOTC would revert back to the World Championship the following year, but in the meantime Jund would steal the show while Modern was in the spotlight. I know it's a pretty typical Modern archetype, but if you're interested in what the deck looked like back in 2012, check it out!
  6. Hey guys! I'm thinking about doing an on-going series in which I offer in-depth decks techs for previous world championship-winning decks. I have a bad habit of starting a series and then never finishing them, but when I do finally decide to film one I'll be posting it here.
  7. In 2012, Yuuya Watanabe won the Magic: the Gathering World Championship with this deck, Jund! Except it wasn't technically a World Championship, it was a Player Championship, and it's a Modern deck too! That's not important right now, though! If you want to check out what Jund looked like back in 2012, then stop reading this description and watch the video!

  8. Yeah, that card was a rollercoaster ride for awhile. It was in the $50-range for a long time, then it plummeted down to $15 when it was printed in Battlebond, then skyrocketed again when it started being played in that Tron deck that tries to lock people out with Karn and Mycosynth Lattice. I wish I had waited a little longer to sell mine. When it spiked after the Karn deck emerged I thought it was a flash-in-the-pan type of spike and sold out when it was around $30. Turns out the deck is legitimately competitive and it's been holding steady at $50 for awhile now. I guess it's better than the $12 I almost sold it for a couple week before, though.

    You can also use Codex Shredder and Pyxis of Pandemonium to have some control over what cards the opponent sees in the first place. If you know they are going to hit something good off the Omen Machine, just tap and make it go away.
  10. It seems someone at Wizards of the Coast has made the push to improve the quality of Planeswalker Decks, and it seems like no one has noticed! The Core 2020 Planeswalker Decks have none of the bulk/filler that previous decks did, and overall it's a massive improvement! -------------------------------------------- Support this channel by using my Amazon Affiliate link.

  12. This is probably going to make people confused about what an "eggs" deck is.
  13. I have "FireShot" which is a screenshot extension I use to capture an entire web page in a single image. It used to be useful although Firefox has that built-in now so I don't need to use it as much. I also have Adblocker, which might sound hypocritical coming from someone who makes money from ads, but I whitelist sites I support. Most major websites I use are whitelisted because their ads aren't too intrusive - banner ads and whatnot are no big deal, but I don't see how you can use Google at all without an ad blocker because 99 percent of the sites that show up in search results are flooded with obnoxious ads.
  14. I love the design of this card, even though it's probably terrible. It basically fights everything on board until it's the last remaining creature or dies in the process. I'd think this is way worse than just playing Plague Wind, but I guess there is also a change it survives and leaves a 10/10 on the battlefield. This is also a pretty fun build-around!
  15. New Gerrard and Volrath. And a Sultai Vampire commander that likes to kill things:

  19. Convert LITERALLY every single black mana symbol in your entire deck to phyrexian mana symbols.
  20. And the 4th commander:
  21. Morph-matters commander
  22. Yeah, I noticed that onslaught of spam. I noticed @King of Jank has started uploading again after going quiet for a month, so naturally I blame him. It can't be a coincidence.
  23. There has been a ton of art released for the set. There is definitely a lot of recognizable imagery from well-known stories. Here are a few. Repunzel Frog Prince Possibly a play on Snow White but with a gender role reversal? Or is this another classic tale? Also, I wonder if this means Vraska will be on the plane. Also, it's probably a coincidence but I can't look at this without seeing Eldrazi hedrons. I'm sure it's unintentional... >_>
  24. WOTC has announced the fall set, and it's called Throne of Elraine. It's described as "Camelot meets Grimm's Fairy Tales," which sounds pretty great considering how long it has been since we've seen a traditional fantasy set in Magic. Here's the announcement article: https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/making-magic/project-booster-fun-2019-07-20
  25. I've been playing a terrible, shallow fan service game called Meiq: Labyrinth of Death for far too long. It's one of those times where I find myself grinding for hours for some arbitrary, meaningless reward and even though I know it's a complete waste of my time I keep doing it anyway. Someone send help.
