tfw the people who do player surveys and focus groups for Wizards send you a potential new planeswalker to evaluate and you're so excited about them but you signed an NDA

Just a little reminder about the best creature token in Magic.

Turns out you can be really aggressive in attacking with Emmara, Soul of the Accord if you run enough copies.

In three separate games Tuesday night I was able to go "attack with Emmara and a bunch of other creatures, make another soldier token, Emmara gets blocked and dies, I cast another Emmara after combat."

Here's my current Pauper Standard decklist. Any thoughts?

4x Barging Sergeant
4x Blade Instructor
4x Hammer Dropper
4x Skyknight Legionnaire
4x Torch Courier
4x Vernadi Shieldmate

2x Charge
4x Cosmotronic Wave
4x Luminous Bonds
2x Trumpet Blast

3x Boros Guildgate
3x Stone Quarry
9x Mountain
9x Plains

Take Vengeance
Expose to Daylight

Today in Magic Story, there is hope! An Azorius lawmage learns to check her privilege and work for the people.

Do I run Healer's Hawk or Torch Courier? Vernadi Shieldmate or Ornery Goblin?

The rest of the curve is fine: Blade Instructor, Skyknight Legionnaire, Hammer Dropper, Barging Sergeant

Or is Barging Sergeant not worth it if I'm running Hammer Dropper?

If I don't decide which dinosaurs to bring, I could always play Boros instead. There are fewer decisions to make there.

Next Constructed night at LPS is Pauper Standard, and I'm determined to bring Dinosaurs.

I'm at the "I don't know what creatures to cut" point.

I'm considering:
Kinjalli's Caller
Huatli's Snubhorn
Sun-Collared Raptor
Nest Robber
Ravenous Daggertooth
Territorial Hammerskull
Frilled Deathspitter
Knight of the Stampede
Grazing Whiptail
Thrash of Raptors
Shining Aerosaur
Spike-Tailed Ceratops
Overgrown Armasaur
Colossal Dreadmaw

I'd rather play RG, but I think I need Kinjalli's Caller. Thoughts?

Went 2-0 with my Selesnya beatdown deck. Thanks @Ice_In_Disguise for helping me put together a list that was not only fun, but also beat mono-blue tempo.

Organizing, "problematic" people, trauma Show more

a lot of like anticap ideas are explained drenched in theory and jargon but stuff like this is pretty intuitive and tbh i didn't connect with any of it until i was like wait a second this is like my life

Walking up to a gen x couple like "which of you is the hacker and which one dreams of living on a subsistence farm"

Hm! WotC to test out new MtG mulligan rule. Instead of drawing 7 less X per mulligan, draw 7 cards, then select X cards to put on the bottom of library.

@Mycroft Interesting. I think it'll reduce the frequency of terrible starting hands.

@DialMforMara Battlebond was their best product last year. I am worried about a lot of what you discussed, but as long as they keep putting out paper products like that, I’ll be content.

If Gavin ends up leaving Wizards, I’ll start to worry. He’s one of the biggest proponents of casual game types left there.

A lot of times, we WANT to hang out as con staff, but there's like five things exploding behind the scenes at any given time, lmao. Give your staff pals a break, help 'em out, and don't rely on them to make plans! It makes things so much less stressful for us! <3
