It is 50% because of the modern jund deck and 50% because people suddenly realised how powerful Domri/Chandra/Xenegos are together as well as the soon to be winning stuff uwr control package of Chandra/Jace/Elspeth/Ral Zarek.

Planeswalkers are going to be a real thing again in standard. Hence Heroes Downfall AND Dreadbore existing in the same format. R+D are not stupid, they know.

I don't get to play enough events, but I was feeling pretty prescient when I built blue devotion for my wife (completing it right before the Pro Tour shot prices up) and threw together black devotion the day before it exploded everywhere too. :lol:

If only this game wasn't such a money pit... I feel guilty only getting to do about 2 FNMs per month.

I feel your pain Psiven, I win a lot of boosters and its hard for me to even stay anywhere near break even point.

Its a great game but the costs are prohibitive for a lot of people.

On the plus side I have had a really good year, probably my best year other than my Pro Tour qualification year.

Still not as good as I want to be though. This could be age. Once you get past 35 things definately slow down upstairs.

For the record... I'm not a competitive magic player (as in, I don't go to qualifiers or anything... just occasionally a pre-release and some drafting with friends.)

The M2015 set is making me happy.

New slivers... quite a few "flavorful" cards... more things to add to my crappy mill deck. I'm excited!

Dont care how bad it is, Don't care if I lose every game.

This is a thing. If you add in Trading Post until rotation you can recur your BOOM engine. Makes me happy.

I'm assuming you guys are actually referring to the Scuttling Doom Engine?

Anywho... I've started dabbling in MTGO again*. Played a couple M15 drafts and pulled a Chandra during my first one (though the deck lost horribly because I didn't get much more to play a decent red deck.)

In live cards, I've managed to pull a Garruk... which I'm undecided whether to keep or trade off (since I don't play a lot of G/B.)

*I tend to redownload it and buy a bunch of boosters every few years, so my collection is sparse and varied.
