    Any new cards coming out that anyone is excited about? Unfortunately, the one that I am most interested in so far is the Buy a Box promo :/

    This is my sad face

    Still looking forward to the book, though, so I can read the entire story. I imagine I'll be getting it on my Kindle.

    New Bolas is incredibly strong, can't wait to get my hands on a few. Saheeli looks great too, it scratches a "Young Pyromancer" itch I've had since that card rotated out. I'm also looking forward to brewing a pod type deck with Vannifar, Neoform, and Niv Reborn.

    I'm def looking forward to brewing around the new Kefnet. But I have no idea how to, lol.

    Anyone looking forward to the streamer event tomorrow? Since I've been getting back into MTG I've found I really enjoy watching people play Arena, it's enjoyable visually like Hearthstone was (and MTGO wasn't).

    Been thinking about what deck I want to run in ranked but figure I should wait until a week or so after WAR, see what shakes out with the new set before I commit my wild cards to something that may not be as good to use very shortly. I'm very much a red player (Boros is my jam) so I'll be hoping to see a good RDW or Gruul deck.

    You could try Ilharg with some good ETB creatures and big stompies like Rhonas but I don't know how good that'll be.

    I've always been more of a combo player (Scapeshift/Valakut in modern) so I wanna try the new Ral infinite copies burn. I also saw a Scapeshift and Mayhem Devil combo nearly one shot somebody on a stream. That could be fun too.

    I happened to open 2 Ral, Storm Conduits so I updated my drakes deck and got 2 copy-combo kills. It's pretty fun but tedious clicking. lol

    LOL! Well if you win with that combo, at least I know you paid the "carpal tunnel" price!

    You know, I never would have thought enjoying instant concedes upon using Thought Erasure would be enjoyable but it is. It so is.
    Just don't reply to me. Please. If you can help it.

    Are you the one playing Thought Erasure, or the one targeted by it?

    I came across an opponent today who used Thought Erasure on turn 2 and then did nothing else other than remove my creatures as I cast them. Of course, I was playing RDW so I still domed his ass into oblivion

    Honestly, once you start making a RDW try to top deck to do anything, you'll win. Just have to have the right opening hand to do it. Which, for most of my games, doesn't happen often whenever I face one so there ya go. Hahaha
