Emerge. It's card disadvantage, but it's a cool way of ramping into big creatures or tempoing out players. Plus its one of the few ways I can think of making Simic interesting and flavorful.

Emerge is pretty awful tempo, senpai. Like, literally nobody who plays tempo decks has considered that card. You want your cards to be cheap and trade up. A one mana Delver might deal 6 damage, nice.

I wonder if people who taken black board power 9 or duals and burned/brunt/destroyed them actually regret their actions?
I know there was a youtube video 10+ years ago of a guy who bought a presumably real Lotus when it was only 1k ish and burned it in a parking lot. Wonder if he's facepalming for not buying a small house now.
Even that "box" of revived duals. When they were only going for $75 a piece? I probably wouldn't have blinked at making a meme box of them. Now that they are pushing 250-500 each? If I was forced to have to get rid of my duals I'd probably prefer to buy a new TV over destroying them.

So is money. All it takes is another person to agree on perceived value. Many people are willing to pay 400 for a card just because you arent.

My point is, if I paid pennies for an alpha dual in 1994 I'm not losing anything if I make a deckbox out of it. It's not like someone came and took a couple hundred bucks out of my wallet. If you never sell then the value is $0.

>> No.76473869

Yeah, I started with like 20 lands and every time I found that I needed more. I think it's because the deck wants to go fast and needs to have 4 lands to get to it's win condition. Ideally on turn 4 I drop two rat colonies and on turn five a Tetsuko to go in for lethal. It's a very one dimensional deck desu.
Some extra 1 costs would probably be best to get some extra value out of turn one and three. I used Opt for the longest of time, but now that I have Piper of the Swarm I don't need to necessarily search my deck for Tetsuko.

This is correct. In fact this is the entire premise behind collectable currency printings. You give the government X amount of money for some currency which you will presumably not spend it's like you just paid them money for nothing.

Saying an alpha dual is worth $100 presupposes that the only thing it can be used for is selling, but it's actually a game piece. You can play a card game with it or make deck boxes out of it or paper you walls with it or use it as a coaster or wipe your ass with it or burn it or do whatever you want. If you paid $0.01 for it then whatever you do with it is worth exactly that much, because that's ultimately what its purpose was. This is why "investors" will always be BTFO, because the value of the cards doesn't come from their collectability. No one will give you $100 for an alpha basic land. The only reason duals are as expensive as they are is because people need them in order to play Leg--... Commander. For that all you need is a piece of paper and whether its a real alpha dual or an impossible to detect chinese fake doesn't matter.

Collectability absolutely affects the price of alpha cards. A near mint Alpha Island is worth about 50-80 which honestly is close enough to 100 for your statement to be rendered false.

Do you have time to sort? Your options are:
a) Sell them individually on ebay/tcgplayer.
b) Trade them in at a LGS. Some stores buy in cash, others only offer store credit.
c) Buylist them on channelfireball/Card Kingdom
d) Create bulk lots on eBay, sprinkle some cards that are somewhat choice in front of them (like a couple of lightning bolts or a fatal push) and sell away.
Do you not have time to sort?
a) craigslist can be decent if you go to a public place to sell them. Expect lowball offers though.
b) Card Conduit takes unsorted lots and sorts them for a fee. Anything lower than $.03 you will have to pay for unless you donate anything lower than $.03 cents. It's probably the fastest easiest way to get rid of bulk.

Hope this helps a bit.

Magic hasn't been good in a long time, but even still FNM could be fun. Modern always fired at my LGS with 40+ people every week without fail. I love strong competition, and there were a few pro players there, so it was always fun to do battle with them and discuss builds and whatnot.

I do play with them but it gets really old really fast and it doesn't feel challenging or stimulating at all.
Every single one of my attempts at traditional games failed because i have no community to join nor anyone to play them with. Got decks, multiple fully painted armies, gaming terrain, rulebooks for different games. All i lack is anyone's interest in me or my hobbies.

And none of it synergizes well so your own deck is even more of an enemy to you than your opponent. I want to play a game where both players have to play like that.

Japan is already on its way out. Have you SEEN what has been happening with the Playstation after Sony changed its HQ to San Fran Sicko? Nintendo is going down that path as well, albeit at a slower pace. Japan is slower to change but will always follow suit with whatever is trending in the US, no matter what.

I don't want Keyforge though, that has no mana system as far as I can tell, I want both players to constantly be mana-screwed and no deck ever operates at 100%.

Actually, what I'd REALLY like is Magic but everyone has to play with bad cards in 70 card decks with exactly 24 lands and both players get to see the other guy's deck and remove 10 non-land cards from the other guy's deck before the game starts, so even if you do sneak a good interaction into your deck beforehand the other guy can identify it and neuter your plans before the game even begins. Basically, I want to play a dysfunctional version of magic where nothing goes as planned and nothing is as effective as you'd like it to be. You never get a "good" game where both people's decks do what they're supposed to and the guy with the better strategy wins. I want Murphy's Law to be in full effect and enforced by game mechanics.

Only thing I don't like about that is that you can use it with Crucible of World to lock somebody down. That sounds WAY too effective and functional. I want it to be "Oh, you had a plan for how to beat your opponent going into this? Ha ha, it probably won't work." Maybe have you flip a coin when you use Strip Mine and if you lose the flip your opponent gets to destroy one of your permanents instead? Now you think twice before ever using it because it is probably a bad idea. I want powerful cards to be "Playing this card is probably a bad idea but I have to risk this if I want to use it". I want everyone's strategy to fall apart before the game even starts and you are forced to improvise with what few and shitty tools you have left. No amount of planning ahead will help. Deckbuilding isn't about having a plan for how to win anymore, it is about making something that can still do anything at all after having its guts ripped out, and even then, what little you can do probably won't work.

I'd be okay with that. I'm not a huge fan of coin flips, but then again I'm not a huge fan of Strip Mine either. Like, if it were up to me, Strip Mine would cost 4 mana to activate and exile itself instead of sacrificing (or simply design the game from the beginning that you can;t get lands out of your graveyard easily). But since actual Strip Mine only require you to tap it to activate, that is way too powerful and under costed, it needs to have a horrific downside. I hate playing against powerful cards and strategies, and I don't really like using them much either. I want everyone to use weak strategies.

>> No.76494715

Honestly, I hope they never print an undercosted card without a serious drawback again and the game reverts to Masques/Invasion power level permanently. This is just me, but that Kaya should have costed six since her +1 ability is akin to False Demise, which costs 3 mana and you;ll presumably get to use the +1 twice even if you;re under attack because she comes with 6 Loyalty (5 from the start, one from her +1) meaning she survives a hit from the venerable Blastoderm with one loyalty remaining. 2 False Demises should cost 6 mana, end of story. These cards are too damn powerful.

I feel like i'm the only person saying this but i wish they printed more jank, and even the "good" cards and tourney staples were dumb jank.

I don't want them to make bad cards, but there's a not at all hard to distinguish line between "good" cards and "unstoppable value engine" FIRE cards we've been getting for two years now. Take pic related. No one objects to any particular part of this card. It's a 1/3 for UU. Fine. It does a devotion-based scry type thing with your top X cards. Fine. It wins the game on ETB if your library is empty. Fine.

But why does it do ALL of these things? If there's one constant with nu-magic it's:
- On curve body (and in Creatures: the Tappening it is always a body)
- Good effect that always procs giving instant value and which never requires any timing or thought
- Another extra and entirely separate effect does something really strong in addition to the first effect
- Sometimes: Plus a french vanilla keyword (not accounted for in its Body/CMC ratio)

Uro too, but I saw more Arena players mad about Omnath. It was clear from day 2 of the Standard format that Omnath was horrendously broken, and a lot of people correctly saw the Uro ban as a way to avoid banning the new mythic. They also correctly questioned whether or not it was playtested at all.
In older times of paper Standard, the Omnath ban would’ve been seen as incredibly fast. But Arena players are comparing the game to other CCGs, where Omnath would have been patched within a day or two. It also didn’t help that the Uro ban happened the same day as TWD secret lair announcement, and Arena just went through a phase of being buggy to the point of unplayability for weeks before getting patched

it's fine, not because it's good design (it's not due to word vomit), but because the decks that it literally resurrected from the dead (decks not seen in ~10 years like doomsday and ceph breakfast) are interesting and promote interactive and thoughtful gameplay. in addition, it also added alternate wincons for meme jank shit like merfolk.
