    The game "Baba is You" has a feature roughly equivalent to Rule 103.2 with it's usage of the word "not"

    So Kaldheim prerelease is out how are people liking it?

    Gotta say, after the third time I watching someone use Tibalt's Trickery shenanigans it's kinda lost its luster.

    But on the plus side, my Dwarf deck is behaving respectably. I'll need to fine tune it, and it will probably never be actually a good deck. But combining Magda, seven dwarves, colossal plow, and embercleave has been kinda amusing. And with Showdown of the Skalds I have -some- answer against board wipes. I doubt it'll hold up against Rogues or Mono-Red or Adventure though.

    Nah. I think we'll see the typeline "Legendary Creature - Elder Phyrexian" combined with ability-text that includes "this creature is also a Praetor, God, and Eldrazi"

    Something along those lines, anyway.

    It's a meme deck, like Gyruda combo when Ikoria first came out. At worst, it might get a BO1 ban like Nexus of Fate did back in the day, but I think the hype will die down.

    Trickery is too good for modern, too bad for everything else imo. It needs cascade to be really good, but is inferior to legacy combo or control.

    I hoenstly don't think Trickery is too good for Modern. FoN, Thoughtseize, and company 100% wreck that deck. I'd be more concerned about it in Standard where a T2 Dream Trawler or Ugin is backbreaking and there isn't great 1 mana disruption for it.

    I don't think it is consistent enough to be good in standard. The modern version runs effectively 16 copies due to cascade, and hitting the cascade spell with the trickery to go off. The standard version you need to draw 1, have something cheap to counter and something to put in play. 20% of the time it will work everytime kind of deck.

    In standard we have enough discard, counterspells, and edicts to mess with it. In a meta without Tergrid and Kroxa it might be stronger, but as it is there is enough incidental disruption. I'm not saying it isn't good, but it is too inconsistent to be banworthy. Honestly, things seem healthier than they've been in a while, with Trickery being the only card people seem eager to ban and it not quite being on that level.

    I made a deck.

    https://deckstats.net/decks/172601/1...gus-amongus/en

    Based on my current Arena Historic deck. It does pretty well in Historic, but Modern is a very different format I believe.

    Still totally want to take it to a Modern tourney some time because it is really fun to play and I just wanna see if I get totally stomped or win a few games.

    I miss playing Magic in person.

    I don't know if I've ever mentioned it here, but I've been working on a very goofy cube recently.

    Afternoon Delight, where the only CMCs allowed are 2, 3, and 7.

    I've only drafted it once, but it was pretty fun - the biggest issue is that it's really skewed towards aggro at the moment, and it doesn't have enough removal in it. I'm probably going to overhaul the whole thing soon-ish... but, hey, if anyone wants something Magic-related to look at while we're all locked up, be my guest!

    It's a cool one! There might be too much low CMC based card draw, like Mentor of The Meek and Lifecrafter Bestiary which let aggro keep going forever.

    So I've built (and started playing) a rather... goofy brawl deck. The commander is Cosima, God of the Voyage; although it would be more accurate to say that The Omenkeel is the actual commander. It is goofy because there are about four actual creature cards in the deck including Cosima. There are a fair few vehicles, and a handful of token generators. It mostly ends up being a control deck, but if I can swing with the Omenkeel (or a few other vehicles) I typically don't have to worry too much about mana issues, since I can just play my opponent's lands. It's just weird, but fun at the same time.
    A fundamental truth about existence: All is to be laughed at.

    Lawful Evil with Chaotic Good tendencies. Have fun figuring that out.

    You use a control or ramp deck to have that many expensive in mana cards?

    *kicks down door*
    Pack your bags kids! We're goin' to SCHOOL!!

    Breakdown:
    • The set seems like it will be faction based, with Strixhaven U being subdivided into five enemy colored colleges.
    • We get enemy colored commands!
    • The schools are:
    • Lorehold (Boros) history majors
    • Prismari (Izzet) art students
    • Quandarix (Simic) NERDS! I mean MtG players. I mean math kids.
    • Silverquill (Orzhov) Lit majors
    • Witherbloom (Golgari) From the article: "Goth bio majors"
    • The Masterpiece-like (but emphatically not masterpiece) Mystical Archive, which will have instants and sorceries from across magics history. They will not necessarily be standard legal, but you can play them in draft, most will be on Arena, and there is one in every pack.
    • Commander 2021 will be Stryxhaven themed, and there will be a deck for each school.
    • They've revealed the packaging, and from it we can tell that there will be loxodon, bear-people, dryads(?), aven, and a humanoid race with fangs (orcs?).
    • Also from the packaging: The twins are back! I really hope they got that athletic scholarship they were trying out for on Kylem.
    • Apparently, they are trying to go green with commander packaging, which is nice.
    • They gave us a cute little map.
