  2. Indeed, here are my thoughts: I'm assuming the main goal of this is to reduce complaining about the Estimated Value of products. Time and time again, WOTC releases product information, along with MSRP, and people point out that the product is bad based on MSRP. This is basically a way to release potentially bad, low-EV products without people complaining about how they aren't "worth it," This is particularly good since the price of products will be determined by the secondary market anyway. Case and point Ultimate Masters, which dropped way below the over-inflated MSRP and sold for way lower after launch. On the less-good front, some stores sold the Challenger Decks for above MSRP, and that was with a "moral obligation" to play by the rules, so without MSRP it's unlikely you'll see those sell at a remotely reasonable price. Also, with no MSRP guidelines, big box stores (or Amazon) are much more likely to sell at a price lower than any LGS could ever compete with, which is very, VERY bad for local gaming stores. Though this is kind of already happening anyway, so.... *Shrug* Altogether, I don't necessarily think it's a "good thing" or a "bad thing," it just seems like they are sacrificing market stability for the sake of better PR during product announcements. A trade-off, if you will.
  3. I really like this initiative to reduce the amount of text on cards. There is such a limited amount of space in the text box and stuff like this just frees up space for more words, which means more complex cards can be printed.

  5. I don't know what my exact list, but I play Affinity in modern and several cards were made into Kaladesh masterpieces, so blinging out my deck with those would be cool!

  8. The current legend rule reads as such: So it only applies to permanents, which would include creatures, artifacts, enchantments, and lands. It doesn't seem to apply to the Legendary spells from Dominaria, since spells on the stack aren't permanents.
  9. I always fill out these surveys when I see them, but I'm so sick of filling out that last section, which is the same on every single survey. The part where it asks the same questions over and over, but phrasing them in different ways, for 5+ pages. >_<

  11. I've been using Firefox for probably more than a decade now. I tried Chrome when it was first released but wasn't impressed, so I've stuck with it all this time.

  14. Agreed with @MTGandME, I visit almost daily but I don't always post. You can definitely get help or generate some discussion by posting...as evidenced by this thread right here.
  15. First match with Frenzied Affinity and we're up against a Spirits deck that's dropping the color green (along with Noble Hierarch and Collected Company) for black, making it far more interactive and removal-focused. This would normally be a TERRIBLE matchup for Affinity, so let's see if Experimental Frenzy gives us a way out of this. -------------------------------------------- For the longest time Affinity was one of the fastest decks in modern, capable of winning the game in the first few turns. However, the deck has always been incredibly vulnerable to sideboard hate and board sweepers. Now, we finally have a solution - Experimental Frenzy! That's right, a 4-mana do-nothing enchantment might be the card that saves traditional Affinity from languishing in the lower tiers of competitive play that it has found itself in. Let's give this deck a try and see how it feels! -------------------------------------------- Frenzied Affinity Playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLZX5Ly_QRoO0cMFVu3LNd2Rxpr0sOc5fY Subscribe: https://www.youtube.com/c/AffinityforMTG?sub_confirmation=1 Twitter: https://twitter.com/AffinityForMTG Outro: Jahoda by Djjaner -------------------------------------------- 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.

  20. I think WOTC definitely wants as many people playing Arena (or Magic Online) as possible, as the profit margins are so much higher. With that said, MTGO didn't kill paper Magic, and I doubt Magic Arena will either. Certainly it's a million times better, but the grindiness of it will probably ensure there will always be paper players. I've already gotten a little bored with Arena. I don't have any interest in dumping money into the platform and this has led me to be unable to build the decks I want. The system just isn't flexible for budget players, and I've felt pigeon-holed into the one deck I've built because spending my precious wildcards on other decks just isn't feasible. On MTGO, I can build and brew to my hearts content. Anyway, what I'm getting at is Arena isn't perfect for every type of player, and because of that, it won't completely destroy paper Magic. It would need to include all formats (or at least modern) and have some sort of secondary market or trading system - and until that exists, I think paper Magic will be fine.
  21. The most pitiful Spoils of War video to date.

  23. A quick little guide for getting cards for way below market value on Magic Online. It is VERY IMPORTANT to keep in mind that the bots do not frequently buy these cards back, so this video is NOT for investors or MTGFinance types. However, if you want to play with cards like Grim Lavamancer, Lightning Bolt, Exhume, Cabal Therapy, Ancient Ziggurat, etc, then you can use this guide to get them for way less than you would normally pay for them through the secondary market. -------------------------------------------- Subscribe: https://www.youtube.com/c/AffinityforMTG?sub_confirmation=1 Twitter: https://twitter.com/AffinityForMTG Outro: Jahoda by Djjaner -------------------------------------------- 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.
