Update on the Ravnica crowd: Milo was happy to see Ariel when she showed up at the bookstore, but they were a little more guarded than usual & seemed unexpectedly okay with the idea of them seeing less of each other while Ariel is off having adventures. Ariel suspects that their adventure moved them up a rank or two within House Dimir, & that they're conflicted about how that affects their relationship, so she decided not to tell them where she'd been & just bought the next Wojek Barent.

I think the best thing about Pioneer is the implication that Wizards will continue to create new nonrotating formats starting every ten years

we've got Legacy (1993), Modern (2003), Pioneer (2013)...

Also, with how they do bannings on Arena, you get a rare wildcard for each Field of the Dead that's in your collection before the update on Wednesday, so if you just want free cards(that you can play in historic) you should spend wildcards on Field now.

Today I'm working with a third-party recruiter on a job opening at Wizards of the Coast.

I had to explain to her that Magic: the Gathering is a card game, and that yes, that's its full title.

Now back to writing up Pioneer decklists for Card Kingdom.


New format, coincidentally from around when I started, might look into it, though there were two years I didn't play so might be missing out on a bunch of cards...

"I've got an idea. What if we brought back Setirov on his birthday? And maybe we could have a traditional potluck with the student revivalist group as a distraction for the Metro."

((Once or twice Ariel and Tigris have hung around campus on their dates, and "casually run into" the vice president of the underground student revivalist club. As far as Ariel can tell, they would be on board with a Setirov's Day potluck.))

is there anything more satisfying in gaming than defeating a higher rated opponent with a less expensive deck?

perhaps... but it still feels pretty fucking great.

@ajanionthespot I have applied for that Kotaku advice writer job you found. Thank you for sending it to me; it feels like exactly what I want to do with my life. (I was even able to put some article pitches in the cover letter.)

Sounds like there's a consensus about how Dack did in War of the Spark, then.
