    Re: 8-Rack

    To be honest, I don't actually know. Your guess on the meta is probably better than mine, even with you not playing it in a while!

    I took some of the experience here and advice and pivoted a...

    Re: 8-Rack

    To both of your points - I was going through my list and realized I had pretty much no 2 for 1s, which is its only source of CA for the most part since I don't have draw outside of castles. Being...

    No smallpox because I was having mana issues initially (possibly with 4 sagas - still testing the optimal number). But I think swapping them out for the cobru and putting those in the board might be...

    8-Rack

    Wanted to create a thread/primer for the deck commonly referred to as 8-rack. While not all versions run 8 rack effects anymore, the core of the deck's strategy remains the same: get your opponent...

    Re: More casting spells timing questions

    Re: The Legacy Pit Open

    Even better- the venue added another 100 to the max capacity so they are contacting people on wait lists. Prize payout was also upped, I believe.

    Re: Strixhaven (Back to School[s of Magic] this April)

    In that case, if this is true, modern will get dark ritual. EDIT- these appear just to be variants like the Japanese cards, H, did you see something else about it relating to MH2?
