Mhmmm... hard question fren. I'd say it should be Smothering tithe, % wise, i bought a bunch for 0.40 at release, and now it's $20. Sadly i sold them a bit too early becuz i was fearing an early reprint. It was my #1 pick for rav allegiance, i wonder if few anons here did listen and did better than me by holding longer onto their tithes kek!
But those kind of "from bulk to big bux" newly printed cards are very rare overall, i'd say it happen once a year at best and hard to predict. This year it was sharnado, last year it was field, and 2 years ago it was tithe.

There is no tempo anymore since the value of each individual card, nevermind synergistic ones, has been pushed so high that attempting to control tempo is futile.

Serious question.
In a world where Splinter Twin was printed in say, 2016 instead of RoE, would Modern players still be nostalgic for it or would they claim it ruined the format? From what I remember at the time it was pretty much agreed to be the best deck.

because it got popular
when it was just a couple of friends playing this made up format where you tried to make random cards work with eachother it was all good

now it has become so big, people go to places expecting to play it with complete strangers who have to abide to a "social contract" and all of that with WotC designing cards specifically for it, while casually making Legacy and Vintage a shitty place

>> No.76230874

The social contract aspect of EDH means you can and will get your ass beat if you do anything the group dislikes (like trying to win), leading to the stereotype of Commander players being implacable, whiny children.
As a consequence of how popular the format has become, Wizards has stated that they now make all of their sets primarily with Commander in mind. Tough shit if you play Modern, or Legacy, where these cards are still legal even if they aren't remotely balanced for them (then again, even the stuff that is aimed at the EDH audience is also raping their format).

>> No.76230879

you made it too obvious bro

>> No.76230883

Because when Card design shifted from competitive constructed formats, to a casual singleton format. The card effects need to be more 'generally valueful' to justify their inclusion in a 99 card deck. This meant upping the impact an individual card would have to make a slot in the EDH deck not feel 'wasted'. and said cards are applicable to every other format where you have insanely busted legends and other cards that are not meant to be run at anything more than a 1 degrading whatever standards there were for power and balance once upon a time.

>> No.76231036

As usual, he's intellectually dishonest.

>> No.76231041

It brings in the worst type of people to Magic, who don't care at all about non-commander formats. As a result, Wizards keeps making single-card value engines and asymmetrical effects that are clearly meant for Commander but are put in non-commander products, in order to entice the commander players to crack packs. These gards constantly break every non-commander format, yet the commander players still consoom so hard that Wizards sees no problem with current design

The secret is that Wizards is courting casual players with Commander, specifically by printing new cards.
This makes players anxious, since a) Big Mommy Wizards is paying more attention to the new kids than them and b) BMW can and will casually make waves in normally stable formats like Legacy by printing new Commander cards.
These players however can't be angry with Big Mommy Wizards. They need her, fucking *need* her to make things the way they used to be, which means they can't be happy unless she makes them happy.
They therefore have to project their fear and frustration onto Commander players and casuals in general, who have no idea why the skinny pale kid behind the tall smiling generous woman is glaring daggers at them.

She also has been duped both times she has shown up into causing huge amounts of instability, she's literally a 2 for 2 loser. She even has a shit personality and backstory, which is that she used to be rich, then bigger richfags swindled her family to become rich, so now she's poor and fucking hates rich people because she thinks they all didn't deserve it (what about her family?) but instead of doing anything about it she just lives in the streets killing people for money. How fucking stupid is this? I have no idea who thought this trash was good. Now she's a major character.
Vivien is a LITERAL ECOTERRORIST who turns into a 12 year old scenester when talking about hippos dropping shits but then murderously cuts down legions of people for harming a fucking tree or killing an animal on worlds that aren't even hers, even when those people are doing it as a necessity to survive.

Kroxa tries to interact with your opponent by taking resources out of their hand. Uro doesn't give one fuck about your opponent or any of the 60 cards in his deck.

Can someone shed some light here?

Why aren’t people at least SB this in Mono Red against Uro? I play kitchen table Modern, and have never fought an Uro deck, this seems like the best answer to it. Aside from Blood Moon shutting it down, but wtf wouldn’t this be insurance at least?

>> No.76236280

Why not just side Tormod's Crypt instead? Tapped lands are useless to mono red.

>> No.76236290

because monored can handle uro being played 1 time but if they can escape it you've probably lost anyway. it's better to just play another burn spell to negate the uro lifegain and win rather than exiling the uro and letting them gain 3 life anyway.

>> No.76236313

>this seems like the best answer to it
That's the problem anon, the best answer isn't good enough
think about it, when someone resolves a Uro against you they:
draw a card (replaces itself)
gain 3 life (unbolt themselves)
put a land into play (pseudo-time walk)

you're going down a card just to make sure that 3 for 1 doesn't become a 4 for 1 later, but that's not good enough, they might not even need to escape it later because Uro isn't only a wincon, it's a engine all by itself

What red really needs is a burn spell that also has the text "If a creature would die this turn it is exiled instead". Maybe a shock variant.

because they run 4 uros and it's gonna cost 1 spikefield hazard + 5 damage to kill uro. that means at the very least you'll get 2-for-0'd. realistically, since you won't run frys in the mainboard you'll end up getting 4-for-0'd.

just about every ugx deck card cantrips so not only do they get to churn through their deck, their spells are also extremely good at buying time to stabilize. hell, their lands are also insanely good at buying time once they get to 7. there's a reason why uromnath is top tier in modern now https://magic.wizards.com/en/content/2020-magic-online-champions-showcase-1-modern-decklists

Can’t you cast it with their first trigger (ie when they play it from hand the first time), yeah they get there life, draw, and land once, but it’s sacrifice trigger kills it after the 1 damage is dealt.

Assuming you have 18 lands in your deck you have a 32% chance of ripping a mountain off the top next turn or, barring that 32.6% for turn 3 for a combined total of a 54.2% of getting at least one land by turn 3. I'd say keep.

Expanding on this now that I think about it more. You have 21 damage in your hand already assuming you can untap with Grim Lavamancer twice but you need to spend ten mana to deal it. Assuming you pull a mountain turn 2 and draw no more land you can't deal the 21 damage until turn 6. If you draw a third land on turn 3 then you could deal it as soon as turn 5.

In retrospect this hand might be too slow. You have the cards to kill but not the gas to play them. I change my decision from keep to mull.

Mtg has become a propaganda tool and a way to allow scalpers to launder money, the game aspect has long been lost.

I have very compelling evidences that someone from the French post office (I don't know who) has stolen 1 of my deliveries (potentially 2) and 3 of the letters I send.
What can I do? Did that ever happenned to you?
I started selling reccently and 3 not arrived letters would absolutely kill my buisiness.

>> No.76244552

What is the evidence? It is nigh impossible to get a postal worker fired unless you have video proof and expose it in the media

>> No.76244602

One of the letter was marked as delivered whereas it was not in reality.
The real proves is that I sent 3 letters on the same day. All were stolen.
They were not in the same box, one was for regionnal delivery, the others were for national and international delivery. I have the log for the websites to comfirm I sent at this time. Finaly, because I used print at home post stamp they had a QR code that you have to scan for the post office, and they have probably not been scanned, it's easy for them to check.
All of that show with a very high certainty in my opinion that they stole it.
I am considering going to the police. But I would like to know what other anons think.

If you want to seriously compete in YGO, you have to buy a playset of the latest short printed power card for 200 bucks every 3-6 months. Only once they milked tournament players they print the card into the ground. Playing competitive mtg is unironically way cheaper.

>> No.76244636

not enough and too little too late
also, in Yugioh, old archetypes and cool cards like Blue Eyes White Dragon are very playable thanks to all the support.
FIRE doesn't give much support to old cool cards, and if it does it's entirely accidental (like Chill for dredge and spell//lands for turbo belcher/Oops all spells)

fair point, i'm not into competitive YGO so i never knew about this. thanks for giving me proper info

They stole a good that I am bound by a selling contract to sell. This is a serious case of theft. Yes they stole for about 100 euros of cards. Which is not that much but it's still illegal.
Also I could not be the onlybone impacted.
What do you mean by social pressure? I checked online and it seems the post office don't recognize cases of theft and won't indemize people. So I guess my only recourse is to go to the police to have them look at the nigger that did that.

Nobody gets fired unless the management is shamed into firing them. People have to know your mailman is stealing your mail until it becomes an issue too big for management to ignore otherwise the mailman just gets a talking to and then he just steals more carefully.

I've known my mailman for years. It's a nice guy the age of my dad.
All of the theft was done between the 17th and the 18th.
I am pretty sure they hired a retarded nigger to replace the mailman on that days and that this cunt stole as much as he could.

I'm so sick of the cards they have put in this game that have almost zero counterplay to them whatsoever. Not even meta cards but something like The Ozolith where they are almost always going to get those counters since they get the counters even if the creature is exiled. There are too many cards in this game that have 3 effects each now and many of them still aren't good enough to see play because the meta cards are even more bullshit.

>> No.76245452

One example is Triple Tactics Talent.

>Most decks run over 10 hand traps in a 40 card deck because you auto loose against combo if you don't.
>You get hand trapped every turn.
>There are no colors so literally any deck can run it if they want.
>There is no resource system, so it doesn't cost you anything to activate.

Modern Horizons was no worse than Future Sight. Which is to say it was fucking awesome but had some design mistakes. But then the only cards that make it in eternal formats are design mistakes.
Oath of the Gatewatch, at least half the Urza block, Gatecrash, and Chronicles all had worse implications IMO. Planar Chaos too, but I like that set.

that's it. I think I finally realized.
No matter what deck I build, which format, all ofh those cards will be obsolete in a matter of a couple of years. I owned many decks in the last 10 years, none of them are alive now. You either buy a playset of every fecth and shockland/dual + staples or your deck has a limited lifespawn. No archetype is immortal now. Not tron, not humans, not affinity, everything is fragile, everything can be powercrept into oblivion.

They should have released a line of coop expansions along the lines of FFG LCGs like lotr or cthulhu tbdesu. I know the horde mode exists, but if jotc had been clever, they had gone all in on this. Iirc correctly coop in vidya and then boardgames took off more than a decade ago and it's actually kind of baffling that they missed out on this and instead were basically forced by edh trannies to pander to to (pseudo) coop crowd.

if the team working on MH1 liked the game they wouldn't have broken all the formats with the powerful cards while all other cards of the set lag behind.
