    [23:52] Did three drafts today, and the only reason I would do that would be if the first two were terrible! Finally got out of RB for the last one and redeemed myself a bit!

    [2021-08-30 18:33] Run no. 15: Vampires Undone. 2-1. Undone is a repeat; All the possible 2nd picks were repeats! I thought we were guaranteed at least 1 nonrepeat, if possible?

    Run no. 16: Humans Many-Faced. Got offered nonrepeats for both picks again.

    [2021-09-01 20:27] Only have 3 packets left that I have never picked (Storm, Tinkerer and Madness). I've also burned through almost all my gold lol. Might be time to pause Jumpstart for a while. Got a decent enough base to start building Historic decks, I think.

  • #mtg announcement day reactions:

    • LOTR set is modern and historic-legal: Excited for Arena, but that's gonna get a lot of whining

    • Street Fighter secret lair drop: Oh no, I don't want to buy secret lairs!

  • 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.
