Why would you play less during the holidays?

Money. I won't be spending any more money on the game with the holidays coming up. That will go to my wife and kids.

btw. what tracker do you use? Looks nice.

That's MtGA Pro Tracker.

https://mtgarena.pro/mtga-pro-tracker/

It has many beautiful features - like browsing your collection when you're not home :angel:
It's also nice to build decks - same import/export function that the game uses. Plus you can select individual basic lands more conveniently.

But there are some bugs, for example it tends to eat a win every now and then (more like every day). For example, my Bayesta's deck's record only improved by 20:5 after those three 7-win-runs. Also it sometimes places an opponent in a wrong color combination. I even managed to play a Draft game with my Merfolk deck.

Still, I like it and hope it will grow.

@Devilwuster: What kind of kids do you have? Can you teach them to farm gold with RDW already?

They won't play the game. I've been trying to get them to. They played with me a bit when they were younger. I guess they have their own things now.

The curse of time ;)

Anyway, on topic: I intend to try my single Tocatli in place of one Knight of Grace tonight. As of now they are the most debatable creature in the deck - except for Tajic, but he's just a replacement for the 4th Marshal. I want to judge Tocatli by asking myself the question "Would I have preferred the Knight now?" whenever I draw him, so a 1-of isn't all that bad for that purpose.

I am rather fond of the white knights for their First Strike allows them to attack into a lot of boards (+ Benalia synergy). But in theory, they're there for the Golgari matchup in which Tocatli should simply be stronger. Should also be better against RDW for it doesn't die to Shock and denies Chainwhirler (sorry for repeating myself). And lastly in the mirror, which should happen more frequently in the foreseeable future, it denies the elephant to those who run it, which I don't.

Regarding kitties, I go back and forth but am still not convinced. Versus RDW it's about the lifegain provided by the 1/1 cat, but for that I need 3 creatures. Otherwise it's just a shame compared to the different Elite Vanguards (I know, it's Savannah Lions for oldtimers, but I'm a Duels kid and like everything on that card). On the other hand, growing a Pridemate and connecting to face are two very separate maneuvers - in any matchup.

And another topic is land-count. I run 23 and am quite happy with that while most PT decks go down as far as 20. One factor is Adanto, the First Fort of course which acts as a land like Flower/Flourish in Selesnya decks. So going down on lands only works when you have enough copies of that. But even then, with Arena's "best-of-2" hand selection I'm afraid I'd end up mana-screwed too often. However if that works as simple as it has been worded, that algorithm should still pick 3 lands over 1 land with 20 in the deck, 1 land over 4 lands though which isn't the case with 23 lands. And I always mull 1 but not always 4. I hate mulliganing for I "always" end up with something even worse.

Please discuss :)

At least I'm not the only one. Today's games weren't as good as yesterday (16-9) but I got 2 Multitudes out of it, so that's ok ;)

Yesterday I had a run of 7 games, and no kidding in 4 of those I was just completely screwed by the shuffler (motsly no/1 land hands, followed by mulligans into similar hands, followed by *ok i'll play this I guess* ... *loses horribly* ... Sh*t happens I guess :D

That's what I try and tell newer players when they moan about this.
That it happens to all of us.
