Pass. Just going to bring out all the tryhard jerks. I love playing against people who make me feel like I'm at a casino and I can't touch my cards or I get rules lawyered to death. "Oh, you touched your land therefore you have to tap it for mana." "You can only touch the top card of your library if you're drawing a card, and no other cards!" "JUDGE! THIS GUY IS CHEATING! HE'S TOUCHING HIS CARDS!"

Which is why I like pre-releases and MNM. People are actually chill and want to play instead of try and win a crappy $15 card.

I wish tryhards like that came out to my lgs, stomping them is the best. If someone every said I have to tap my mana by touching the land card I would fall out of my seat laughing at them.

I've had some real gems. Especially with the aftermath they'll have all of the cards laid out to see the names of the cards, except they'll hide the cards with aftermath behind other cards so you forget about them after 10 turns then cast Lead out of nowhere.

Or the one guy who refused to exile the aftermath card after he cast it and just kept trying to cast it even though it should have been exiled. Since the judge couldn't confirm that he had cast it earlier (I'm pretty sure the board wipe from Earth is hard to forget... but hey) he let him cast it a second time but then physically removed it from his possession and said "You can come get this back after this game is over." Apparently they had trouble with him in the past and the judge was fed up with it.

I always get some real frickin' gems. Oh, then there was the guy during KLD/AER who would constantly (and very, very obviously intentionally) knock over his energy counter and say, "What was I at again? X+3?" where X was wherever he actually was.

What's the name of your LGS, sounds like the next time i'm in the Twin Cities I can people watch! Unbelievable

Also if you're looking for a cheap affordable standard deck that ruins people's dreams, Crested Sunmare decks are great, people who have never seen them are like ???? Priceless

The Source. I legitimately would not go to that store unless there was some dire need to go there. #TheWorst.

Crested Sunmare decks, eh? Interesting. $100 is hardly affordable, plus it looks like half the damn deck is rotating out of standard in what, two and a half weeks? Lame.

Ixalan is looking sweet as hell. I hereby dub the Dino Stomp card the "Suh Stomp". I need to mark up a custom playmat of Suh stomping on Rodgers except replace Suh's head with a dinosaur head. It'll be great.

Hmmm the verison i'm running only has big daddy keeltus traitor of ghet,thraben(rip), gideon, and shambling vents rotating out. These are all fine as the deck may go to mono white or splash green.

Rotation is going to be weird for the past year n half I've been playing gideon/thraben in like all my decks, not sure what to do at this point.



BUT DANNNNG THOSE REPRINTS!
Favorable wins/Drake haven? YESSSSS
OPT^ Spell Pierce^

Dino Thragtuskish!

Pretty excited about the SuhStomp and all the enrage cards. Like the 1/1 for 1R that when it is dealt damage you get a 3/3 trampling momma dino? Yeah, let me pay G, have it kill one of your 1/1's and I get a 2/2 and 3/3 trampler out of the deal? Seems legit.

I'm pumped for drafting this set. I can't wait to stomp on some vampires.

I feel like the only thing Vamps have going for them is lifelink... I mean, that's a good thing, but it just feels like Dinos have EVERYONE outclassed.

Granted, it probably means dinos will be overdrafted, so they'll never be open and their overall power will be down. Gotta love that draft is a self-correcting environment! Love it.

Dynos cross 3 colors and everyone will be going for them. I can see them not being great, you can't just be oops all dynos.deck and expect to beat a deck with a sound strategy. R/W Aggro Dynos looks nuts. I'll be taking every r/w menace flyer I can get my hands on.

Vampires are strong, they have a lot of ping effects and ability to go wide backed by strong removal.

Pirates are super strong early but their finishers concern me. If you don't pull a bomb pirate idk if you can finish close games. That goblin cannon card or w.e might be enough to finish opponents off. You're at 5 life? fire 5 treasures/pirates....win...

Merfolk are quietly the best limited tribe imo. If you look at what there uncommons and commons are capable of...Of course this is because I assume all the good dynos will be diluted.

I'm excited to play some magic.

I'm really excited for Rivals of Ixalan. I've got a Dino commander put together and it really needs some help.

Lol, yeah. I am HOPING that Rivals can do for Ixalan what Hour did for Amonkhet. I liked Amonket, but drafting Hour was absolutely delightful. Just such a great environment. I think the elements are in palce for this to happen in Rivals, I'll be very interesting to see how they handle the mechanics.
