        1. Last wipe ever (presumably): https://magic.wizards.com/en/mtgarena/faq - “There are currently no plans to perform another wipe at the end of Open Beta. General (Basic Info RE: MTG Arena)”
      2. Hooray for starting over.
        1. Ryan played through the tutorial.
        2. Was a pretty good introduction for people that don’t know how to play Magic, so if you have someone in your life who wants to learn, this is a PERFECT opportunity for them to dive on into the pool with the rest of us
      3. Tutorial
      4. Use the code “PlayRavnica” to get 3 free GRN booster packs

      7. Rotation: https://magic.wizards.com/en/mtgarena/faq - “While those sets [Kaladesh and Amonkhet blocks] were available during the Closed Beta, with the fall set rotation they're no longer available for purchase in MTG Arena.”
  2. Main Topic - Arena is now in open Beta and this weekend's Guilds of Ravnica Prerelease

      3. Ryan also chose Dimir, played Sultai
      4. CJ took Izzet because Golgari was not an option, played Jeskai
      1. CJ opened an Assassin’s Trophy
      2. Ryan opened Doom Whisperer and Pre-release stamped foil Lazav, the Multifarious
    2. What good stuff did we get?
      1. CJ pulled off a win against Zack with Response // Resurgence and Guildmages’ Forum as the only source of white in my deck.
      2. Ryan got to cast the second half of Find // Finality to wipe CJ’s board

Found Decks

 

  1. Thanks
    1. Mike Condon for the music and editing
    2. Tiffany for the logo/icon
    1. @commandcast - 00:12:15
    2. @jumbocommander - 00:12:15
    3. @HenryStukenborg - 00:12:59
    4. @UltimateGuard - 00:29:22
    5. @scryfall - 00:32:08
    6. @tappedout - 00:32:08
  2. Ep 62 Community Spotlight:
    1. Session one in the books. Big Jon is in the lead, with a whopping 10 points this first session. The most anyone got in the previous season was 8 points in a session. Kudos to you Big Jon!
    2. Ryan tells a story about being greedy
  3. League Update:
    1. Definition: Found decks are like “Found Art” or “Found Object”: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Found_object
    2. Disclaimer: The power level of a found deck probably depends a lot on the size of your collection. However, this can be a fun challenge to build a Commander or even Brawl deck from your draft leftovers.
      1. Ryan:
        1. Basically try and get inspired by a new Legendary creature
          1. Command Zone Episode 227 (or 224). Here is the link: http://commandzone.collected.company/82940b68
        2. Another way I get inspired is by a deck I’ve played against.
        1. Don’t organize collection
      2. CJ:
        1. Think of a theme or see a card I like
      3. Zack:
    3. How do you go about starting a found deck?
      1. Zack: good stuff boxes
        1. Look through all the good stuff boxes and some random (not good stuff) boxes pulling cards that are interesting
      2. CJ: Dig dig dig!
        1. Not the way I normally build a deck, and that’s why I find the concept of “Found Decks” interesting
      3. Ryan: I have something I call “The cache”: Stanley 10 compartment box: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Stanley-10-Compartment-Deep-Pro-Small-Parts-Organizer-014710R/100375900?MERCH=REC-_-PIPHorizontal2_rr-_-203707065-_-100375900-_-N
    4. How to build the deck
      1. Ryan tests by playing games with friends (oftentimes after a league session)
      2. CJ does LOTS of goldfishing
      3. Zack doesn’t
    5. Testing

    1. endgamebastrop.com - 00:01:33
  2. Ep 61 Community Spotlight:
    1. Ryan won season 4. Top 5 standings:
      1. 33 - Ryan
      2. 24 - Vanessa
      3. 22 - Elliot
      4. 20 - Peter
      5. 17 - CJ
      6. … Zack had 10 points and came in 9th
  3. League Update:
    1. Commander 2018 Decklists
    2. Subjective Reality - Played by Ryan
    3. Exquisite Invention - Played by Zack
    4. Adaptive Enchantment - Played by Elliot
    5. Nature’s Vengeance - Played by Isaac
      1. Game 1 - Elliot pulled off Genesis Storm for like 6, and hit Whitewater Naiads while already having Nylea’s Colossus in play
        1. Ryan cast Sower of Discord and named Ryan and Elliot. Elliot had previously cast Martial Coup for 7
        2. Zack liked Blinkmoth Urn but it was killed by Akroma’s Vengeance both games
        3. Bosh, Iron Golem was played
        1. Ryan cast Akroma’s Vengeance and killed all of Zack’s artifacts.
        2. Ryan got to cast Aminatou’s Augury, and it was OK, but didn’t win him the game, which you kinda want 8 mana sorceries to do.
        3. Ryan got to cast Entreat the Dead for it’s Miracle cost, and bring back 4 Creatures, and it was good!
        4. Zack got obsessed with Retrofitter Foundry + Tawnos, Urza’s Apprentice
      2. Game 2. Ryan durdled his way to a win.
    6. Games
      1. Was a really fun experience! And I recommend listeners give it a try if they have a chance. Bonus: Listeners, if you did play all 4 decks against each other, give us a tweet, and let us know what you thought.

  2. Ep 53 Community Spotlight:
    1. Pros and Cons - Makes you ( your deck or playstyle ) strong in some areas and weak in others.
      1. Pros
        1. You know your strategies well
        2. You probably have more fun
        1. Your opponents know your strategies well.
        2. Pet cards, themes, etc lead to a homogenization of decks.
        3. Sticking to familiar areas of play can cause you to stagnate in skill
      2. Cons
      1. Cj - Tribal slivers
      2. Zack - Ridiculous and intricate combos that never work out, Blue decks, especially Esper
    2. Pet Themes - tribal, artifacts, story etc.
      1. Cj - Card draw and ETB creatures
      2. Zack - Cantrips, Life Gain, Extort, Counter Magic, ETB creatures
    3. Pet mechanics - like card draw, recursion etc.
      1. Cj -  Go BIG
      2. Zack - Combos

  • Main Topic - Counter Magic
  • How do you consider counters in deck building? How many do you initially include?
  • How do you use counters in a group game?

 

  1. Does it draw aggro?
  2. Do you save it until something is literally going to kill you?

 

  • How can you use counter spells to affect the  politics of the game?
  • How does it feel to be on the receiving end of a counterspell?

 

  1. Does this break the social contract?
  2. Is this any different than removal?

Play More Interactive Cards!

  1. Thanks
    1. Mike Condon for the music and editing
    2. Tiffany for the logo/icon
    1. @TheTokenOtaku - 00:04:23
    2. @Tequila_Nebula - 00:04:23
    3. @jrm5778 - 00:04:23
  2. Ep 51 Community Spotlight:
    1. Ryan emerged victorious in the first session! Sweet Rise from the Tides + Pyromancer’s Goggles + Increasing Vengeance win
  3. League Update:
    1. Disclaimer: This is for casual-ish metas. This might not necessarily apply to more hard core CEDH (Competative EDH)
      1. Example: Having a zero-mana sac outlet ala Ashnod’s Altar means you can always interact with anyone trying to “Touch your stuff”
      2. Playing more interactive cards can be a way to increase your win percentage (AKA Leveling up your game)
    2. Interactive cards comes down to one simple thing: Having the most options for plays to make at any point in the game.
      1. Proactive:
        1. Ravenous Chupacabra
        2. Aura Shards
        1. Swords to Plowshares
        2. Draining Whelk
      2. Reactive:
    3. Interactive cards can be proactive or reactive
      1. The idea here is that you can get value out of someone else’s creatures because you can wait until they attack YOU to kill them.
      2. When you wrath the board at sorcery speed, you have to “guess correctly” that the person with the threats is coming after you.
      3. On Board removal that says “Go Elsewhere” ala Profane Procession
    4. Sorcery Speed Board Wipes vs Instant Speed Removal
      1. This may dissuade people from coming at you when you have open mana (even if you’re just getting mana flooded)
    5. Cultivating a game image as “Someone who always has the answer”
      1. Have the foil for their best laid plans. Example: If you know CJ is gonna cast Patriarch’s Bidding naming Slivers at some point this game. Make it a priority to keep his graveyard clear, or have a way to flash in Withered Wretch, or Scavenging Ooze
    6. Be one step ahead of your opponents
      1. This often involves not playing something on your turn.
      2. Example: Having a Brain in a Jar with 4 counters on it, and Evacuation in hand. This means, I’m ready for any sort of creature related shenanigans
    7. Plan your moment.
      1. Lands can be interactive too!
        1. Kher Keep
        2. Maze of Ith
        3. Contested Cliffs
        1. Grab the Reins
        2. Cryptic Command
        3. Boomerang / Unsummon
      2. Instant
        1. Vandalblast
        2. Damnation
        3. Armageddon
      3. Sorcery
        1. Opposition / Glare of Subdual
        2. Goblin Bombardment
        3. Pestilence
      4. Enchantment
        1. Deathrite Shaman
        2. Olivia Voldaren
