NobodyPicksBulbasaur King of Games

I've been playing Magic on and off for a number of years now. I got back into it right before M12 came out. I like playing standard because I like the pay-as-you-go approach, as opposed to dropping hundreds of dollars at once on a legacy deck. It also forces me to keep making and playing new decks, which is half the fun.

I did recently drop my collection to pick up a legacy deck, and I've been having lots of fun with it. The people at my LGS help me tweak it, and it's been smooth sailing.

I also love playing in limited formats and EDH, because they turn deck making into a skill, and forces creative play choices.

I'm also a big fan of the absolute asshole that is Fabled Hero .

The problem that I see with this challenge is that there are only 34 cards that include phyrexian mana, and that's only if you include the 8 cards that cost normal mana and use phyrexian mana in their text boxes.

Regardless, here's what I made in about 4 minutes. Phyrexia

Programmer is correct on all counts. Stacking your deck is absolutely cheating. If you make any attempt whatsoever to arrange your deck in order to raise the likelihood of drawing two cards together, you are cheating.

How do you type that? Didn't know it existed.

Also, it is extremely unlikely that there will be functional reprints of the best Modern staples because those "reprints" would also be Modern-legal. Imagine if they reskinned Tarmogoyf . You'd be able to play 8 copies of him in a deck, which would be absolutely bonkers.

Sometimes it's smarter to simply do a straightforward reprint and damn the consequences.

Meh. It's already been covered that beginners will still have product to look forward to.

To be honest, I don't think core sets even bring in beginners. Players aren't drawn in by the simplicity of core sets. They're brought in by the intrigue of new sets. I started playing competitively again around Innistrad block because HOLY SHIT VAMPIRES AND SHIT! Fun mechanics and themes make the game worth learning in the first place, even if you do have to learn an extra keyword or two.

Play what you can while you still have it, and worry about what you're going to play in September after spoiler season. Why spend your effort worrying when you'll know everything in 3 weeks or so?

I agree with you. If you're so poor that you are legitimately worried about every penny that you spend on Magic, then you should not be trying to play the expensive decks of the format. It is absolutely possible to play MtG on a budget.

My budget recently took a drastic change for the worse, so I traded in my entire collection for a semi-competitive Legacy deck. Now the only money I am obligated to spend on Magic is $5 whenever I have the time to go to FNM.

If you really care about your budget, you'll find a way to make it work. Otherwise you're just whining.

@Everyone

If single prices get goofy because of the new format, you can always just kick it oldschool and win prize packs and then trade for the cards you need. You don't always have to play the best deck in the format all the time, especially if you're on a budget. Best deck =/= Budget deck.

Odds of drawing at least 1 of 4 in a 7 card hand with 60 cards = 39.9%

Done. Your odds always go up when there are less cards in your deck. If you really need to see that card, run 4 copies of it in a 60-card deck.
