@Ice_In_Disguise It was this one https://events.axionnow.co.uk/Events/EventDetails/478 it wasn't big per-se when I got there, I think it was 140 player or so? At least capacity wise. Top 8 gets a crate of WAR and top prize gets a free GP + travel/accom.
I did terrible woooooo. That said, said friend who played last-minute-Izzet-Phoenix-with-a-dodgy-manabase absolutely smashed it, considering no practice with the deck, got 5-3 for 9 boosters.
Based off that, I caved and bought Scalding Tarns (RIP my wallet) and am gonna give the deck another go, I've fancied a change in deck for a little while so could be fun!
Also went 3-1 in the loser-bracket side event in the afternoon, losing only to Ad Nauseum in a close match.
@thomfox I believe sets like Modern Horizons/Battlebond are called 'innovation' sets which makes sense.
@Anke Welcome aboard! Drafting is a good way to get back into things, worth noting that the most recent Standard set is more complex than usual for drafting due to the presence of *Planeswalkers at uncommon* among other things. That said, it's pretty fun.
Magic Arena is available if you want a way to practice online (free to start)
Modern Horizons is teaching me a lot about people's perspectives on the format.
General advice for the format: You can absolutely brew in this format, but the format isn't going to care what you're doing. Have a game plan that isn't treating the game like solitaire and you can still have fun brewing.
Modern Horizons + a rules query
@DialMforMara Consensus from today seems to agree. I'm happy with this card as the cost still makes it clunky as all heck.
@Ice_In_Disguise I need to start a binder of "reasons magic on mobile isn't straightforward" - this would easily be the cover!
I've not been playing any Standard lately, but I just saw this list and might see if I can scrabble it together on Arena. Burn + value is always sweet. https://article.hareruyamtg.com/article/22668/?lang=en
