  • I did a couple of #kaldheim sealed events again to practice for the open. I felt like the pools were good, but I had so many misplays, I only finished 2-3 and 3-3. Here's hoping I perform better tomorrow #mtg #magicarena

  • Friday night Kaldheim sealed! https://www.twitch.tv/twitchyroy #mtg #magicarena #twitch #kaldheim

    I played two sealed pools today, both felt decent but didn't do so well, mostly because of my own bad plays =/

    Looks like my internet isn't very good for streaming tonight though =/

    Managed to play 2 drafts, but both had terrible outcomes. I did take local recordings, but I'm not gonna bother uploading lol

    Ended up having to cut yesterday's stream short because of technical issues. Draft deck felt decent, though the run started poorly.

    Today was another double draft day. One of these was the worst Kaldheim run so far, the other was a bit better. Guess which is which!

  • Drafting Kaldheim ep5 https://www.twitch.tv/twitchyroy

    Managed to do two drafts this time. One of them was a monowhite deck, while the other was a 3 color pile. Easy to predict which one did better.

  • Gonna draft some more Kaldheim, keep me company if you like: https://www.twitch.tv/twitchyroy #mtg #magicarena #twitch #kaldheim

    I got the lantern again, but this draft didn't go as well as the last one. Might have needed more lands.

    Wasn't able to screencap the results, but this draft went quite well! Tergrid's Lantern is definitely a bomb, and even the squirrel overperformed I think.

    Today's draft went slightly better than the last one, though I still lost to some mana issues because I went for the greedy 5-color snow build.

  • Streaming some late-night Kaldheim sealed! https://www.twitch.tv/twitchyroy #twitch #mtg #magicarena

    I ended up playing a dumb 3-color deck and only went 2-3 due to mana issues and being unable to kill big dudes. Draft next week probably!

  • Managed to hit Mythic on #magicarena just in time before Kaldheim drops. Looking forward to drafts and hopefully a better standard

  • I have yet to see any Valki Vartokamus jokes and I am disappointed in all of you #mtg #MTGKaldheim

    Quoted SaffronOlive's tweet:

    Geez, god/planeswalker MDFC. At first glance it seems really solid. Valki is good early, Tibalt gives you late game utility.

  • Last-minute mythic on #magicarena to close out the year. #mtg Eternal is close to Master Rank too, but I don't think I have the energy for it. Honestly, grinding to Mythic takes too much time, so maybe I won't push it so hard in 2021. Or maybe just in December lol

  • Streaming some Kaladesh Remastered draft! Watch me be terrible https://www.twitch.tv/twitchyroy #mtg #magicarena #twitch #mtgkld

    As predicted; I was indeed terrible. Draft seemed to go well enough, but I made too many mistakes I guess? Seems like this format is not for me.

  • Kaladesh Remastered draft really doesn't like me; I thought this deck was pretty good, but it was yet another 0-3. D: At least I didn't waste gems this time. #mtg #magicarena #mtgkld
