Pioneer Banned and Restricted announcement #1.
Maybe I'll be able to buy Leylines of Abundance now.
mtg arena, call to action, please boost

2. Select "Access Issues"
3. Fill out your info
4. Subject: Linux Port
5. Description: <insert your reason for not using Windows>

Newest Un-set announced, in an interesting form: Un-Sanctioned! https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/news/announcing-unsanctioned-2019-10-10
5 30-card non-randomized decks with new and old favorite Un- cards. Only one product to buy, no chasing rares or piles of duplicates.
Standard 2020 (i.e. pre-Eldraine) had me end up building a ramp deck named "FINE, I'LL RAMP" which I found super boring, albeit quite powerful.
Eldraine's rolled around and after a free day to screw around, this is my current list. Lovestruck Beast is a neat card! Great with Leafkin Druid (which I had a break from but is happily back in) & The Great Henge (which is just bonkers). 1 of Karn's Bastion as a mana sink, although sometimes I don't actually have anything to do with it.
Prerelease advice, including "if you plan to send a creature on an Adventure, put it at its Adventure CMC in your curve"
Here is my elementals deck I've been trying out on #MTGA Standard 2020. I've had a few 3-0 runs, so I think it has some potential.
Been going 3-0 a lot with this super aggro standard 2020 "Feathers" deck, which is so aggro it doesn't have time to play Feathers herself most of the time since it's looking to play a bunch of combat tricks and win by turn 4, so I'm only running two of the namesake card!
(the two images are of the same deck, just sidelist view for those that prefer since for once it fits in a single image)
In which CardKingdom lets me rant about Brawl
@wakingrufus Threw a Grixis list together myself, but might update what I'm playing after seeing what others are.
Had my first 7 win draft in #m20 on #mtga with this list. Final record 7-1 . The 1 loss I accidentally kept a 1 land hand, but it still came down to 1 card in my library when they killed me the turn before I would have blown them out with gyre :/. Also I actually dropped 1x season of growth to add in befuddle about halfway through the draft.
They've finally explained Adventures: as an Adventure resolves, you exile it, and then you can cast the creature part from exile.
There's also Adamant, which rewards you for using a lot of a single color; and Food artifacts that gain you life.
The ELD trailer is out and I am dying laughing
CWs: Food (lots of food) and focus character death
I finally went back to find the series of articles that noticed that the D&D alignment grid is very white-centric, and rewrote it from the point of view of each of the other colors, and *of course* it's by Loreley Weisel, queen among Vorthoses:
