    So, alchemy, that breath of fresh air, that saviour of the metagame, herald of a new standard, cannot operate as intended because... pros cannot adapt quickly to metagame changes...

    Re: MTG Arena

    Well, on the other hand Hasbro has previous experience of doing this and things worked out more than all right. I guess the main point here is that the sudden demise of MTGO is not happening. For now.

    I find even more stupid things like the fact that you cannot play Lightning Bolt, but you can play a card that each time it swings places 4 Lightning Bolts in your deck.

    I think, certainly from my perspective what I think will be the ultimate decider is how frequent the changes to alchemized cards will be and how much they screw decks. Let's face it, wildcards in...

    I just realized how quaint that poll at the top is. To think that 24% at some point considered the oyf to be a bannable threat really speaks volumes about how far the metagame travelled. The oyf is...

    I think there was always a tension between intention and outcome. They ended duels , kept mtgo and motored on with arena. Duels was the casual-vaguely-related-to-MtG game. MTGO was the online port of...
