I've only had two runs at draft so far, I've not been in the mood for Arena of late. I managed a 2-3 and a 6-3, which wasn't bad. Clerics seemed to come up a lot. My 6-2 game was against clerics actually. Unfortunately the RNG had decided that I had received more than enough lands in my first few games, so I got stuck on 2 lands (of the same colour) for my opponent to leisurely build his board and then stroll over and crush me.

To make things up to me, the RNG flooded me the next three games in a row. Needless to say I switched off at that point and found something else to do.

hmmn. Sounds a bit grim. I've been a bit disillusioned with MtG lately too, most likely due to the negativity floating around the interwebs about the secret lair/standard bannings/outlook for the future. Drafting has kinda improved things a bit, but I'm still nothing like as hyped as I was a couple months or so ago.

I suspect, speaking for myself, that being stuck at home is starting to get to folks. I really need to get out and see people more, virus or not. I find myself spending my time planning edh decks, building them (whilst spending as little as possible on them - that's part of the "game" for me), but when I finally do sleeve them up, instead of a feeling of satisfaction at a well crafted deck, I just feel a sense of pointlessness when I slot it onto the shelf beside all the other decks that havent yet seen play. It's all getting a bit frustrating, tbh. *le sigh* Hopefully things will improve in the nearish future. I mean, I appreciate that things could be worse - I talk to my folks in Scotland most weekends, and it's certainly no picnic over there just now, but still, summat's gotta change, I reckon.

quite enjoyed some historic games this evening. I'm a bit drafted-out, which is fine, as that's par for the course at this point in the season. I have most of the cards in the set, and a fair few wildcards for brewing with, so 's all good. I went back to playing my UB historic zombie deck. It's really surprisingly effective, at least at gold rank. Got in a good couple of Gary headshots for 15+ damage each time. Verra satisfying, yes it was :twisted:
