@WotC_Lexie:


Yessss! Literally nothing wrong with netdecking. In fact, I encourage people to do so! It's super helpful for newer players (or those who don't have hours to comb through sets and brew). For example, when building my first Commander deck, I used an existing decklist as "inspiration". It wasn't a true netdeck but it did help me find some card combos that I wouldn't have thought about before simply because I wasn't aware that those cards existed.
P.S. I see a lot of people here complaining about opponents playing "netdecks", when that "netdeck" is just obvious card combinations lol.
How do you break the monotny of facing the same deck over and over?

You play something different. Seriously. Play some Jumpstart, or switch to Historic. Maybe play some Limited. My personal take on it is that you're probably not actually playing the same deck over a...

WotC isn’t pretending not reading what this sub says. The question is whether this vocal community (there are other not so vocal ones out there) is sufficiently representative of the entire population. We’ll see what actual difference in usage number this sub may bring to the table.

We read most of what goes on in this sub, yes

AMONKHET REMASTERED

Alrighty—who's ready to rise among the worthy once again? Next week heralds the return of Amonkhet and Hour of Devastation to MTG Arena in the aptly named Amonkhet Remastered.

Let's look at some of the nitty-gritty, sun-blistering, sand-blasted details:

  • 338 total cards from Amonkhet and Hour of Devastation*
  • Obtainable in boosters, Limited events (Sealed and Draft), and through crafting
  • Focus on creating an interesting, repeatable Limited player experience
  • Provide support for Historic and (eventually) Pioneer Constructed formats

MECHANICS

It's been a few years since we've faced the trials of Amonkhet, and a lot has changed since then . . .

We agree that there are balance issues in Brawl beyond Teferi, and we don’t think this B&R solved that. We’ve been working for a bit on a different solution there; stay tuned for the August State of the Game for more info.

The standard bans aren't too much of a big deal since rotation is soon (though I guess Cat being banned is pretty huge), but both Wilderness Reclamation and Teferi being gone from Historic is huge and amazing.

The Teferi ban in Brawl is... strange. Banning it won't fix the problems of the stale meta in brawl

Just a quick note: We agree that this change doesn't fully address Brawl balance, and we've been working for a bit on some improvements there. Stay tuned for the August State of the Game for more info.

THIS IS A SCHEDULED EVENT Aug 3, 15:30 - 16:30 UTC

Aug 3, 15:10 UTC
Scheduled - We will be performing scheduled maintenance on AUG 03 at approximately 8:30 a.m. PT (15:30 UTC) to deploy patch 1.10.01.00, to implement the new B&R changes. Maintenance is expected to last approximately one hour.

This is a data only deployment, and players will not need to update their client to continue playing Magic: The Gathering Arena. No downtime is expected.
