  • Drafting Adventures in the Forgotten Realms! ep 7 - Quick Drafts! https://www.twitch.tv/twitchyroy #mtgafr #magicarena #twitch

    [21:15] Did two quick drafts today, both BR, but neither one went the distance. Maybe try some other archetypes next time?

  • Managed to clear the #mtgarena Standard Open in just under an hour using @urlichmtg 's Monowhite Book list. Wasted a bunch of gems though, since I had a first run that was plagued by network issues on my end. Still, looking forward to day 2!

    [2021-08-02 02:06] Unfortunately, day 2 didn't go quite as well. Finished day 2 at 5-2, just short of cash prizes! Such is life. Deck was a great choice though! BO3 decklist attached for reference.

  • Drafting Adventures in the Forgotten Realms! ep 6 - Quick Drafts! https://www.twitch.tv/twitchyroy #mtgafr #magicarena #twitch

    It was a bit of longish stream. I did two quick drafts, a mediocre RW run and an excellent BW run that hit 7 wins and got me into platinum!

  • I guess I'm getting all my drafting done by Aug 12 so I can focus on collecting these! The F2P #magicarena challenge just got more interesting lol

    Quoted MTG_Arena's tweet:

    It's all here—Jumpstart: Historic Horizons expands the Historic format further, providing a glimpse of what's possible for Magic: The Gathering Arena.

  • Drafting Adventures in the Forgotten Realms! ep 5 https://www.twitch.tv/twitchyroy #mtgafr #twitch #magicarena

    The draft deck was decent, but lacked removal. Draft didn't go well, and network even crapped out for me towards the end, so I didn't bother with a second one. Finished 2-3.

  • So apparently I'm having a good month on #magicarena. After hitting mythic yesterday I managed to win the standard challenge today for the first time! Decklist is modified from @urlichmtg (because I didn't have enough WCs lol)

  • Hit an early in the month (for me anyway) Mythic rank on #magicarena early on a Monday morning, using UW Auras in Historic! Haven't hit mythic since before Strixhaven lol.

  • Drafting Adventures in the Forgotten Realms! ep 4 https://www.twitch.tv/twitchyroy #mtgafr #magicarena #twitch

    This session was 2 terrible drafts. You can still watch it if you like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zgWzP97XPno

  • Drafting Adventures in the Forgotten Realms! ep 3 https://www.twitch.tv/twitchyroy #mtgafr #magicarena #twitch

    Today's draft wasn't as good as the last one, but still a pretty good finish. Internet was a bit problematic though, so the video upload is probably choppy.

    Had a great run tonight with UR, getting my first 7-win draft in the format!

  • Casually drafting some Adventures in the Forgotten Realms! https://www.twitch.tv/twitchyroy #mtgafr #magicarena #twitch

    Managed two drafts tonight, but both ended with mediocre 2-3s. I think I didn't have enough synergy both times? Hope I figure out the format soon!

  • Welp, did the traditional launch day sealed for #mtgafr on #magicarena, did terribly lol. I initially tried building the UW with the two PWs, but there wasn't any removal in those colors, so I went with the RB build instead, maybe that was a bad decision.

  • Strixhaven limited summary

    Just based on my public drafts, my Strixhaven limited win/loss record is at 54%

    I actually started checking this because this reddit thread claimed that if your win% is at least 56% then the upcoming draft challenge should be profitable, so I just miss that threshold lol. Area for improvement!

  • The character Zimone from #mtg Strixhaven reminds me of Kasie from NCIS

  • Threw some gems away again on this month's #magicarena #mtgstrixhaven sealed open, ended up playing Silverquill splashing red since I had Professor Onyx and Lukka.

    See how it turned out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4B9Do6_8YME

  • Wednesday evening Strixhaven quick drafts! https://www.twitch.tv/twitchyroy #mtg #magicarena #twitch #mtgstrixhaven

    Two quick drafts today! Finally managed to get 7 wins in quick draft by forcing silverquill aggro! Well, maybe the Lightscribe helped a lot!

  • Monday Strixhaven quick drafts! https://www.twitch.tv/twitchyroy #mtg #magicarena #twitch #twitter #mtgstrixhaven

    Did two quick drafts today, both were mediocre, but one was slightly better than the other. Probably one more QD stream this week before sealed open on the weekend!

    YT episode split into two because the stream hiccuped in the middle.

  • Saturday Strixhaven quick drafts! https://www.twitch.tv/twitchyroy #mtg #magicarena #twitch #mtgstrixhaven

    Rare-drafted a bunch (I think 6 in the deck and 4 in the board), but still got a decent enough deck. Didn't perform well though, had some bad keeps

  • Friday afternoon Strixhaven draft! https://www.twitch.tv/twitchyroy #mtg #magicarena #twitch #mtgstrixhaven

    I thought I drafted a couple of decent yet average decks, but didn't perform too well, had a couple of bad draws. A poor end to my Strixhaven premiere draft run
