It's going to be so fucking depressing if they ever do spool back around to Phyrexia. This is a company that wants to sell a product containing happy nujusted gender neutral adult children and their animal friends.

How would they even do Phyrexia? Magic lost all of its "metal", especially with M21 with dogs. I shudder at what awful things they would do to Oily Mirrodin. At least Mirrodin 2 kept some of it's horror even though nuPhyrexians were less original Not!Xenomorphs.

You didn't lose or gain anything, anon. Money in investments is not "savings", it is an investment. It is not money until your investments are liquidated.
The way you actually lose is by panicking over something like this. Assess your finances, question why you had so much tied up in a single asset rather than diversifying, then rethink and adjust your strategy going forward.

Crypto is well known as a volatile, high-risk thing to get into. You did this to yourself. The best advice I can give for figuring out where to put your money is:
Don't think how much money you could make, think how much you risk losing, and how likely you are to lose it.

Fear is the mindkiller, friend. The first thing you need to learn is never to panic. After you've absorbed all the powers of the stoics, two things help you avoid such things altogether.

1 - Diversify your investments to hedge against risk. It hurts less to watch 2% of your money vanish, than it does 50%. It is better to rise with the tide, than it is with a wave.

2 - Write out a plan, IN WRITING, for all your investments. How long do you plan to hold X, Y and Z? 5 years? 10? When do you sell for profit? When it doubles in price? When do you cut your losses and get out of something as it begins to crash? 20% drop? 50%? etc.
If you have a clear plan, there is no need for panic.

Don't want to get too off topic, though, so I'll leave it at that. To keep it on topic: remember that Ugin guy? Who lost his entire life savings investing in Ugins? Don't be Ugin Guy.

Look bro I have researched crypto most likely far less than you but there are some fundamentals you are missing.
All cryptos, regardless of whatever anyone says, are tied to Buttcoin. Buttcoin is actually nothing while other shitcoins are tied to something, but Buttcoin is still the big dog and represents all crypto as a whole. Loss of faith in traditional markets = buttcoin starts going up = it's the tide that raises all boats and everything else starts pumping from people trying to get in, and this even managed to lift the stablecoin ETH. Once it all starts rising everyone gets dollar signs in their eyes and expects it to keep rising forever, exponentially, not realizing that the lows come after the highs in crypto, faster than in regular stocks.
ETH pumped 30% in a month, it was always going to correct. You should have either just sold then, or walked away from your crypto app because it was always going to swing back short term.
You want money but you think you're too much of a pussy? Buy a little crypto, write all the wallet info down in a couple places, and then forget about it and only check it once or twice a year regardless of what happens. Invest the rest in stocks, and some precious metals but still mostly stocks. Safe ETFs for the long term and tech startups if you can handle checking in a few times a month. People meme but that's still where the smart money is and you should take the boomer route and invest in the long term payoffs if you don't think you can handle the ups and downs. Most people can't, which is why all the pro traders are on cocaine.

You learned your lesson early, before you had fat stacks to set on fire.

Zendikar Rising is an interesting product from the memevestor perspective. The Mythics are mostly going straight to bulk and that is already being reflected in singles pre-order prices. All of the value is being absorbed by the box toppers and specifically by the fetches; this means that the "draft" booster boxes which have traditionally been the primary product effectively have an EV of zero.

In practical terms this suggests that rather than addressing the complaints of players regarding the price and availability of fetch lands, the ZR fetches are likely to cost MORE than earlier printings.

I can't even figure out which cards are worth what in what packs, where and how. Check a preorder price for one of the cards- oh wait that's the extended art price, no wait the full art price,.... no wait that's the alt-border price... wait no that's the extended art FOIL price...

I've been speculating standard will still be shit but perhaps not as heavily dominated by UGx decks. Temur Adventures will be the standard by which you need to measure your midrange brews, so traditional magic is still out of the question. Spot removal will still likely be bad due to the insane card advantage present on the best cards so grindy games of old school midrange will be gone. Control may remain due to sweepers but it's not looking great. Two color aggro strategies will not be playable due to the terrible manabases, so expect most aggro to be monocolored with playsets of the mythic DFCs. Not to mention, only 6 two color decks even stand a shot with upcoming manabases.

The new Omnath + Uro deck could be the next big ramp deck and will shut out most other midrange strategies besides adventures if so. The mythic DFC will be required and will likely lead to more issues in the long term.

He'll likely need to be played in some kind of control shell but UG by itself does not seem particularly strong. Sultai will have the worst manabase of the 5 enemy wedge colors while Naya has the best. Makes me think Omnath will likely be the best home for Uro.

Unearth also has a cmc limit and isn't an instant, meaning it can't save your big nig from non-exile removal.

my point was that everything has cantripping or you have economic instants that dig very deep. on top of the new mulligan, this is disastrous for the game. it represents an immense dumbing down of card advantage. you no longer have to think about it because there are many draw effects, everything replaces itself, you have an insanely consistent mulligan, you now have lands on the back of your spells on top of regular more flexible spells, and you can look 6 cards deep at instamt speed or tutor things like mad or wish them or play from the GY.

Card filtration cantrips aren't new and they've been printed for a long time. It's why I think it makes a pretty bad example when it comes to talking about the new game design. The trend is there but this card just isn't an example of it. The trend as I look at it is adding draw a card on cards that don't need it and doesn't make sense for them to have really. Stuff like Crackling Drake and the new "land destruction" spell. But when there's already a metric fuckton of card filtration spells that draw a card it seems pretty weird to complain about.
