That list looks very sick, Veg. I love Final Payment as well, but I think 4 cards as sac outlets may be too many with only a few cards with afterlife on them. Consign to the pit is very clunky as well, and maybe not necessary if you can in fact get away with 3 FP. I'd be interested to see what your sideboard looked like. Absolution is likely the biggest bomb in the set, and a lot of your other cards are very good (2 enforcer, wight, forbidding spirit, caracal, etc) but I'm not sold on some of the choices here. Just depends on what else was in the pool. Either way, well done on going 7-0. I wish the deckbuilder was more robust for sealed on Arena. I don't think I'll ever run a sealed event on Arena for that reason alone. Oh well.

How many times did you cast Absolution? I hate that card so much in draft, and it's gotta be soooooo much worse in sealed when you have plenty of time to draw and cast it.

Been watching a lot of streamers lately, and while I don't mind watching Arena gameplay, the drafts do nothing for me. There is no tension when you know the bots can be exploited. HEY LOOK GATES IS OPEN. Not sure why its hard to implement live drafts, but perhaps a google search later will shine light on some sort of development issue. I don't really care how the sausage is made, though.

Best of one also seems kind of pointless from a competitive and strategic standpoint. Do what you want, i guess. Just don't do it around me!😠😠😠😉😔

i cross'd a barrier into SCOOPvilLe yesterday and dunked with the best jammers and fresh dip ballers roundabout through an awesome bomb dunk party.

100% agree Eric. It really bums me out that competitive integrity is being sold out by everyone for a product that is easy to look at. F2P is definitely an appealing aspect that I can't fault people for, but bot drafts and Bo1 sucks balls.

Absolution was cast 2 times. Never exiled anything with it though.

I know 3 final payment is a lot, but with Dead Revels things went by smoothly. And that Hero of Precinct one was the real all-star of my games.

 

I just tried the draft... this absolutely sucks o_o

And they have ranked rewards for this? Kinda boring. Might just spam some to get rankings and free packs...but I dunno. I'd rather do a Constructed event.

 

MTG Arena bad:

  • Drafts (just tried them, UGH)
  • No friends list
  • No chat/voice
  • No search for cards by attack/toughness

MTG Arena good:

  • Time saved sleeving
  • Time saved looking for or sorting cards
  • Playing with someone at any time
  • No shuffling and tracking of the board.

I'm going to get into Bo3 soon for constructed, but I like Bo1 for trying out decks.

I've sported a mono-green elf deck that has gotten me a lot of wins at the moment... I don't know which color I want to splash for Bo3s... if I even will add a splash, I either have lots of mana or a full board.

  • Blue: Krasis
  • Red: Banefire
  • White: Unbreakable Formation, Knight of Autumn
  • Black: Poison-Tip Archer, The Eldest Reborn

Thing is, in mono green, Branchwood Armor is a GOD DAMN powerhouse.

If I don't splash, I have a few ideas for the main or sideboard

  • Growing rites of Itlimoc x1
  • Branchwood Armor x2 (2 in maindeck)
  • Shaper's sanctuary
  • Thorn Lieutenant
  • Reclamation Sage x2 (2 in maindeck)

I finally used my TappedOut.net account and added all my pauper decks, many of which need tweaking, as well as some EDH decks I've been slowly assembling and then built over the last week. My EDH cards are all in the same sleeves so a lot of the Maybeboards are cards I own and are just in a folder so I can hot-swap them. A plan for the next bit is to make a checklist so I know what I'm swapping.

 

All of these are what I actually have in paper, I have a bunch more pauper decks on MODO but low desire to add those since most are just piles of crap (mostly assembled from free bot stuff) I was trying to make work. Three of the pauper decks live with my pauper cube - Mono U Delver, Kuldotha Boros and Affinity - after some research and crunching on which combination of three would have the most even but fun matchups that I could fit in the box. I still need to build a WB Pestilence deck, sadly a Tron variant of some kind, probably the really annoying flicker/lock Dinrova Tron, probably TortEx and then far later if at all some combo decks like Tireless Tribe and Inside Out.

I'm now going to slowly watch a replay of today's top 8 in Pauper at GP LA at https://www.twitch.tv/videos/389754064 - commentary by LSV and Huey. Top 8 decks are:

 

Tron

Golgari Tortex

Mono U Faeries

Bogles

Zombie Tribal

Burn

UB Delver

UW Familiars

LSV/Huey commentary is truly a treat. LSV is so knowledgeable and my favorite player/content producer by far.
