@Ice_In_Disguise It was this one 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.

Doing my first big modern event tomorrow! Biggest I normally do is side events at Magic Fests. List below, it's scary that I did this mostly from memory 😛 Also pulled together a Izzet Phoenix list for a friend who'll be driving us there.

@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

I've been looking to jump ship to a new deck but was holding off until I saw new cards. Not sure what the plan is currently for that, but my GB Rock deck will absolutely have a sideboard Force of Vigour.

I feel like I should be tooting more but as a general catchall update WOW modern horizon is absolutely crazy!

Hey folks, some life advice for you: don't get into the ARPG Path of Exile whilst thinking of getting into a deck that uses Path to Exile. It's confusing :(

Also traded for an Amulet of Vigor, I think I'm gonna try to trade into Amulet Titan somehow. Looks like a fun deck, if complex!

Somehow am 3-1 at modern FNM 3 weeks in a row after months of mediocrity! Highlight tonight was Dark Confidant revealing 4 lands vs UW Control *chef's kiss*

@Ice_In_Disguise I need to start a binder of "reasons magic on mobile isn't straightforward" - this would easily be the cover!

And for a magic toot, I'm excited about MF London in 2 weeks! Only showing up for the Friday to trade some nice foils no one wants to vendors (Search for Azcanta & Koth of the Hammer) and to do some side events.

Stupid work crap I don't want to use birdsite for 

The GAM Podcast's latest episode is a monolith of an intro to Amulet Titan and honestly it sounds like a fun deck. Missing a lot of stuff for it though, and it's not cheap (says the man with a Tireless Tracker avatar for his GBx shenanigans)

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.
