    that should be the opposite. Standard should be played in case of wallet problem.

    And we should just buy the deck and not boosters

    Standard is too expensive, having to buy new cards each set is bad and seeing all cards lose value is frustrating. I prefer buying a dual than a Standard deck

    With MTG Arena now I see no reason to ever spend money on standard or limited again. I've only bought two one-time bundles on there for $20 total and have four standard decks and have played an absolute ton of drafts. Me and my friends only play EDH with proxies so my only real mtg expense now is new stuff to try out with my legacy deck which there have actually been quite a few of recently but nothing especially expensive. Currently looking to get four Dreadhorde Arcanists.

    yeah, I think that paper magic is going to die in some year. It makes so much sense for WotC to concentrate everything there. Direct platform with the customer and now the only way a player has to get a card is just with boosters.

    10-0 for WotC and Arena. Imho even MtGO will lose appeal and customer care

    You forget: I already own a legacy deck. Even if I already owned a standard deck too, I will have to replace it in a year.

    As long as Paper is profitable, there's no way they're going Digital only. Arena might be successful, but even the mighty can fall (see: Hearthstone) and then WotC would be fucked. And we still haven't seen the effects of a Standard rotation on the playerbase on Arena.

    Some people are starting to question it. I even read a rumour that modern horizons would be placed in arena as part of the new format.

    Having said that we know scooby all for certain, rotation is around the corner and if you note the reddit thread about the last patch some people are also getting slightly miffed because all they see are cosmetic improvements and nothing else.

    In summary, the natives are getting restless.

    It's still deeper than Hearthstone. MTGA is not going to die soon too :)

    Is the weird 2 way Vamp Tutor maybe good enough? Probably not without probe legal is my thought.

    Would the Angel be any good in Modern Soul Sisters?

    As for the twin tutor, Leonin Arbiter and Aven Mindcensor would probably be the best way to abuse it.

    Can we just talk about how great this new vamp tutor card's art work is for a second?

    Okay. That felt good.

    You're an evil man. Let's throw in Surgical for good measure. Hell, you can tutor for Surgical, Scour them and draw Surgical, then entirely remove their best card.
