While checking to see if Zendikar was already on #magicarena, I found that I still had an unfinished Historic Event with Jeskai Fires. I get to play with banned cards!
oops, went down for maintenance! Hopefully this is still around when it comes back up (and that I dont get the third loss!)
We’re back! I decided to wrap this up before drafting Zendikar. When my opponents pause with Fires or Teferi on the stack, I can only assume they are dumbfounded lol

Hit mythic on #magicarena (relatively) early this month, running BO1 Jund Sacrifice in Historic. This means I can focus on Limited when Zendikar rolls in this week!

Decided to risk my precious gems playing Ikoria Turbo Draft on #magicarena. Turned out well! Just need to draft crystals (essentially moxes). Draw cards and counterspells are great, so blue is best in this format apparently. #mtg
Okay, I had a lot of fun so I did another one. No Boon of the Wish Giver meant the deck wasn’t as strong. This one was a lot closer, but managed to get there.

Bonus #mtg content: a friend told me I was a featured opponent on another guy’s Youtube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ypZOqgz2uMg It’s standard, he’s running UW control, I’m on Temur adventures. Our match goes long and is like almost half of this video! Spoiler: I lost!)

@rovietoosin saan ka na lilipat?

@zalthehuman republic acts are laws passed by congress and signed by yhe president. administrative orders are issued by the executive branch as part of his duties and thus limited to the powers of the executive

Super annoyed that I have exactly 1340 gems rn lol. (I also have only 5kish gold, so that’s not an option either)

Repost from aevanko:

Fun fact: Japan uses a predetermined fortune telling calendar thing called Rokuyou (六曜) Six days. Most calendars have the type of day written on them by default. The most lucky day is Taian (大安). Every major PlayStation console launched on a 大安 day in Japan, except one.

I’ve been alive for 40+ years, I dont think I’ve believed anything in the past that would get me “cancelled” today. (not that I’m worth “cancelling”), so maybe “everyone” is a bit strong

Quoted paulg's tweet:
Since everyone in the past believed things that would get you cancelled today, the factor that determines whether they’ll actually be cancelled is whether or not they happened to publish such beliefs. Which is almost random, but not quite; those who wrote little are safer.

Reply to TheZvi's tweet:

@TheZvi Maintenance has been extended. https://magicthegatheringarena.statuspage.io/ Probably better to wait for a while than trying stuff again

Zendikar Rising draft! ep1 https://www.twitch.tv/twitchyroy #mtg #magicarena #twitch #mtgzkn

So I managed to play one game (and lost) before server-related issues. Will continue later, but here’s my draft deck

I managed to play 2 drafts during this episode: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N2rcdcJSloo

Unfortunately (spoiler!) I performed very poorly D: Have to figure out what I’m doing wrong (aside from the obvious misplays), feel free to give feedback!
