  • Managed to spike this weekend's #MagicArena Historic Metagame Challenge on the first try using Black Market Creativity, great against linear decks! Now if only I could do this well at the Opens...

    I think I fought 1 UW control, 1 Rakdos midrange and 5 aggro decks

    For reference, here's a guide I followed for this deck: https://mtgazone.com/historic-1-mythic-rakdos-black-market-creativity-deck-guide/

  • Threw away some gems on the Arena Open today, my sealed pool had some high-end bombs but felt otherwise mediocre:

    Welp. That was terrible.

  • I would guess we're getting serious artifact stuff in Brothers War given the 11 artifact lands in these anthologies

  • Drafting some more Baldur's Gate again! https://www.twitch.tv/twitchyroy #mtg #magicarena #twitch #mtghbg

    I managed to do 3 drafts tonight. Unfortunately, I had the time because they all had terrible outcomes! Not good for a final episode.

    First draft went very well, finishing with the 7-2. Second draft was a much worse 3-3, but both drafts combined to make the day profitable.

    The drafts today seemed good, but due to a mix of misplays and mana screw, I only got to 4-3 both times.

    First draft went a horrible 1-3, but second one got there! I really should have just stuck to my AFR instincts lol

  • Did 5 runs on the Standard Challenge on #MagicArena with the below Jund list. Didn't get there but that's a pretty good 72% win rate!

    Record Gold Packs
    3-1 +0 +3
    2-1 -500 +1
    4-1 +500 +5
    0-1 -1500

    The event was still available, so I tried a Jund list from the recent Japan Championship and did poorly.

    Record Gold Packs
    1-1 -1000
    0-1 -1500

    Sigh.

    This was the final Quick Draft stream for the season! I was hoping to get to 7 as a nice season finale, but we only got to 6.

    Two poor drafts again today to remind to stop trying to make Rakdos work no matter what cool mythics we get! Went 3-3 and 2-3 respectively.

  • Got back home in time today to throw away some gems on the #MagicArena play-in sealed qualifier. Honestly thought the second build could go the distance, but maybe I sacrificed too much power for consistency. Jund build went 0-2. UW went 2-2. #mtgsnc

  • Quick Drafting Streets of New Capenna! ep9 https://www.twitch.tv/twitchyroy #mtg #magicarena #twitch #mtgsnc

    Managed two QD's today. Unfortunately, they both ended poorly at 2-3. On the bright side I managed to beat a Brokers Ascendancy with maindeck Broken Wings lol

    We went back to our UW shenanigans in today's quick draft, but only got to 5 today. Better than yesterday at least.

  • Did 2 sealed runs of the #MagicArena #MTGSNC Limited Open this weekend. Went bant both times, unfortunately, we did not make day 2. Runs ended at 5 and 6 wins respectively. So close!

    Second quick draft was much better than the first. Hopefully we have good pulls in the Arena Open as well!

    Just one draft again today, my first shot at the GW archetype. Wasn't super happy with the deck and had lots of grindy mirrors but at least I was able to get to 4 wins.
