  • I heard there was free vintage cube on #mtgo so I figured I'd dust off the old account and give it a shot. I had no idea what I was doing! It's a miracle I was able to eke out even one win, and that was only because the opponent timed out just as he was about to win game 3.

  • Magic Arena Decathlon 2021

    It took me SIX ATTEMPTS to get my first #MagicArena Decathlon token in the MID+VOW sealed event. Not sure I want to bother with the Alchemy one

    I tried the Alchemy event anyway and got there in one run! So much for being better at Limited than Constructed lol. I ran Monoblack blood. One more token to qualify for the finals! I guess this is the #MagicArena decathlon thread now.

    #MagicArena decathlon event 3: VOW traditional draft, got there in two tries. I'm qualified for the finals now! Now to decide if I want to try to complete all 10 events lol.

    I've already done like 5-6 runs in event 4, it's so swingy!

    #MagicArena decathlon event 4: New Player Decks. Finally got there with GW after trying so long with BR. Swept the run too!

    I guess I am attempting the rest of the events?

    #MagicArena decathlon event 6: Historic Artisan

    Got there on second attempt. First attempt was with Monoblack, second with Merfolk.

    Four attempts so far with event 5 (bot draft), haven't gotten there yet.

    Missed out on event 5 of the #MagicArena decathlon, so the perfect run is out (and I wasted far too many gems), but I did manage to get the 6th token via event 7 (Historic), guaranteeing 2nd run at the finals! Took me three tries with BG Food. Yet to decide whether to go for 8

    #MagicArena decathlon event 8: singleton. Got there in 2 tries, using Sam Black's list. Each game took forever though! At least I didn't spend gems. One more token to get a third finals entry!

    #MagicArena decathlon event 9: standard bo3. Took me FOUR tries. Monogreen bombed. Two tries with Izzet almost got there but every mirror match was a miserable grind. Finally swept the event with Monowhite. That gets me 3 runs at the final! (No need to do event 10!)

    The #MagicArena decathlon finals today, with the format being Arena Cube BO3 draft. Unfortunately, I did poorly in all 3 entries! I only had two wins across all 3 entries! I also have recordings, not sure if I should bother uploading! Here are the decks I drafted:

    1480204706781663239_3_FIq99xaUUAgIchh.jpg

    The annoying thing is I actually had some practice runs in the Cube BO3 event, and all my practice runs went 3-0 or 2-1, so I thought I had a handle on the format, clearly I was wrong! Here are some of the decks I drafted that did well (you will notice a pattern lol)

  • Crimson Vow quick drafts! https://www.twitch.tv/twitchyroy #mtg #magicarena #twitch #mtgcrimson

    [23:07] So I managed a couple of quick drafts. Decks seemed nice, but neither got to 7. Oh well. This was my last stream for crimson vow limited, I finally get to open my packs!

  • Have thrown away some gems at yet another #ArenaOpen on #MagicArena. All that draft practice did NOT pay off. Both decks felt meh. Watch the VODs for examples of how not to draft #MtgCrimson apparently

    [22:27] Only got to play one draft today. Unfortunately the pattern of alternating good and bad days did not hold up and this draft was a bit meh. Probably my fault because of bad keeps though. Deck seemed pretty solid.

  • Innistrad Crimson Vow Sealed

    As is usual, I did a Crimson Vow sealed on #MagicArena to get a feel for the limited format. Got some good rares, but sadly didn't manage to get the 7th win (last opponent had Chandra and Manaform Hellkite lol) Will see if I can stream some drafts this weekend! #mtgcrimson

    [16:26] (and I didn't get a stats email for AFR for some reason...)

    Also, this stats email didn't give me the "most drafted commons / uncommons" stat, is it because I didn't draft as much this time?

  • Managed to hit Mythic on #magicarena on the last day, despite not playing for half of the month. Climbing from Diamond 1 is always a terrible grind =/
