The interface for the standard 2020 event on #mtg arena is so clunky. They could have at least default the deck selection to what I was playing last time

I am aware of the existence of Pauper as a format in MTG, but I never paid too much attention to it before. A couple of weeks ago, a friend pointed out that I might enjoy playing the recent Jeskai Nuneca decks that had become popular recently. I checked out a sample decklist, and you bet I jumped at the chance to play Mulldrifters again lol. We set about to gather the cards.

Very humbling that as i was dropping out of #MTGSeattle, Kai Budde, who’s about the same age as me and started playing #MTG around the same time, made top 4 of the Mythic Championship, after having been semiretired for almost a decade!

Did another sealed today at #MFSeattle for practice. Deck felt better than yesterday, but did not go as well, finishing 1-2 on some bad draws #mtg https://t.co/9glyP1kH3T

Rob Alexander painting demo earlier at MagicFest Seattle. He did this in about 2 hours; “I can’t do it in 30 minutes so I don’t have a TV show.” Pretty great! #mfseattle #mtg

Lost in the finals of a trial today at GP seattle. Here’s the deck I built from my mediocre pool, if that interests you. Hopefully I have better luck in the main event #mtg #MFSeattle https://t.co/KQTKrwPvsY

I have to admit when they first announced the new modern #MTG set, my first thought was “Modern Horizons that are new to us, watching the signs along the way…”

Also, I only realized last night that Assassin’s trophy could target nonbasic lands safely. For some reason I thought it was “nonland permanent”. All those games lost to a transformed Legion’s Landing! #MTG

While cleaning up some stuff I found some old #MTG related pencil sketches. Can you identify the cards? https://t.co/3AR6wsBhe4

I don’t think we should ban Lantern or Ensnaring Bridge, but I wouldn’t mind printing sth like “Shatterstar, Artifact, (1). R, Sacrifice ~: Destroy target artifact. Whenever ~ is put into your graveyard or the exile zone from your library, exile all artifacts.” #MTG #Modern

Opened a couple of #mtg fat packs because I wanted red and blue boxes. Cc @switchfollows @aleksfelipe https://t.co/RAM1cCcsrq
