It's ok Vert, he's learning.

Obviously he doesn't get the subtle irony in a post about the complex frustration over losing the one game you play a lifegain deck to one of 2 copies of Tainted Remedy I've ever seen since Origins. Maybe one day a smarter soul than I will explain this convoluted concept better.

I apologize if I offended. My intention with posting was to join the discussion and add my opinion. BBB, hope you can forgive. Please consider the below an explanation to why I posted the way I did and as an invitation to further expand your opinion.

I just felt that the complaints and critiques about the format sounded strange, normally a format where there are many formats is considered healthy. Duels certainly has had the other extreme when gruul ramp was clearly the best thing to be doing. I didn't mean to insult one of the best players, but opening a topic with a complaining post that doesn't back up its points is asking for comments, especially from those with different opinions.

I joined because I want to contribute to the discussions and learn more. I read a post wherein an individual complained that a lifegain deck lost, that in a new meta they played a bunch of aggro decks and that other people are brewing new things. Were I reading this topic before I made the account, I would have liked to see the poster expand on their post. There certainly are complaints to be made about the new season, but the ones I saw didn't seem to be very well stated. I decided to try to get some discussion.

Also I have no idea who BBB is yet or what baggage comes with disagreeing with them


No need for the seriousness. Also don't let those grumpy old mtg addicts put you off. :D

This is the internet, we stoke the flames of any argument instead of deescalating, BBB is triggered by Gaia's revenge - hit him where it hurts!

You don't Aether Hub hard enough then, pilot error. :V

And yeah, 2 mana gain 4 vs take 4 damage? Might as well be a White Negate vs that uncounterable spell.

Yeah, haven't played it for a while tho (2-3 weeks) so she might get the boot. I really liked B: scry 2, draw 2, lose 2 life or BB: search your library for a card and put that card into your hand.

It's like playing Ancestrall Recall and Demonic Tutor :party:

I'm not thrilled with the meta right now, though it's definitely been worse.

Right now, it feels like Aggro and Mill reign supreme. Control is good if it gets the right tools vs aggro in time, but gets beaten by Mill generally. Red seems really dominant, as it's in RW Vehicles, UR Mill, and BR Aggro (and I guess RG aggro, but I haven't seen much of this). And of course, RDW still a thing.

After the fifth set of cards I'm still missing a fun way to use alternate win conditions or interesting combos. The only way to mill is a 3-of and is only viable in some kind of control shell that could use basically any other wincon in it's place.

The game does indeed feel kind of dull when all you can ever play is another flavour of planeswalker or creature strategy. Izzet burn/mill gets old very quickly and it's still too generic for my taste.

Yep. In previous editions, we have more themes to choose, although no deck maker.
