  • The analog wall clock in my room randomly stops and I guess it starts again

    at some point since the time changes, so whenever I look at it I basically

    get a random time. I thought about changing the batteries, but then I

    realized this is super on brand for the quarantine period.

    Ugh, did two terrible drafts. Tried two different decks for the first one.

  • It's the end of an era: Wizards is sunsetting PWPs and DCI numbers https://www.wizards.com/Magic/PlaneswalkerPoints/36918016

    I had exported my own PWP data and DCI match history already, but posting here for posterity:

    If you're looking to export your own data for any reason, I found this script: https://github.com/giventofly/exportpwp/blob/master/README.md from https://www.reddit.com/user/heyzeto/ to export everything to a CSV, I tried it and it's pretty good! (I can't recommend my own code, it's super messy!)

    More of my own data, lifetime ranking: 230th in the PH isn't so bad, given how inconsistently I'd played through the years. (I tried to get my worldwide ranking too, but the site kept coughing up errors, too many people searching for their own data after the announcement?)

  • Ikoria draft no. 14 https://www.twitch.tv/twitchyroy #mtg #magicarena #mtgiko #twitch

    I totally screwed up the broadcast for this draft due to playing around with some settings. Still exported to Youtube anyway: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Uqnm9t3U6c (The draft itself also went poorly!)

    I got disconnected too! Then I played one more so here is draft no. 15: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Mbmyqm-_NM It also did not go well, though I liked this deck better.

  • Ikoria draft no. 10 https://www.twitch.tv/twitchyroy #mtg #magicarena #twitch #mtgiko

    Not as good as the last one of course, but still pretty decent. Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=olPqkl47BJk

    Oops, here's the draft deck

  • Ikoria draft no. 9 https://www.twitch.tv/twitchyroy #mtg #magicarena #mtgiko #twitch

    7 and 0! Best Ikoria draft so far! I even won one game where I was stuck on one color for the first 6 or 7 turns!
