@mycroft Ah true. I guess it can be run in the deck - Day's Undoing is probably the signature spell. Or maybe Vision Skeins if you want to skimp a mana? Weak compared to a wheel but more consistent as a signature.

@mycroft I missed this earlier but yeah 😬 mtg.gamepedia.com/Power_Nine There is this in MH1 though scryfall.com/card/mh1/46/echo- if cast with flashback this is basically a self-exiling Timetwister

Also not sure on FNM plans tonight, Modern with no one I know really or Draft/Standard with people I do. I just want to bolt people!

h0lydiva on twitch is making me want to play Kiln Fiends again...

@mycroft I think I started playing a few months before M10 came in and genuinely don't remember damage on the stack coming up that much. Maybe that suggests that it's pointless other than for pure spiking, rather than that removing it kills magic?

Magic players love drama.

@DialMforMara No idea tbh, not been on arena much lately. At some point I'll cash in those arena codes! Maybe.

MTG Arena code alert! Redeem 'OneBillion' to get a War of the Spark booster pack. This is to celebrate one billion games being played! :pridewalker:

Really was tempted to pre-order a box of horizons but I simply cannot justify it - my collection is a complete mess, so saving some cash and pre-ordering the equivalent of what I'd spend on half a box on some value rares.

Getting myself:
2x Nurturing Peatland
2x Plague Engineer
1x Collector Ouphe
(I'm out of GB for now, but will want these when I return!)
2x Fiery Islet
(New deck, new format staple lands)
4x Giver of Runes
(I don't know where, but I know they'll see play and were cheap!)

@ishara It'll definitely help in limited! So many times a vancouver mulligan will remind you just how duct-taped together your draft deck is.

("It" being the free 7 drop ofc, Neoform itself is fine for modern)

Bit wary of stuff like Allosaurus Riders combo in Modern breaking out again but really the DCI should just ban it. What sort of Magic does the Neoform deck invite? Nonsense. Just ban it please 🙄

London Mulligan rule is coming into effect on the release of Magic 2020 (July 12th). Looking forwards to less non-games of magic!


Gonna shake things up for a bit in my Modern FNMs.

Primary deck: Izzet Phoenix
Fun shenanigans: Jeskai Ascendancy ft. 3feri

On the backburner: GB Rock

@Anke That sounds more correct - Ixalan was released Nov 2017 so I imagine it would rotate around the same time of year.

@Anke As someone who doesn't play Standard but likes to think he keeps an eye on it - oops. I thought those sets had a bit longer. Good to learn! Also whatsinstandard.com/ is great for stuff like this.
