I keep a close eye on it but I'm not active in its community. My collection keeps growing, and there will be a time where I will sell most of it to sustain myself for a quite a while. While keeping two or three treasured decks.
Do you buy cards just to invest in them?
Nope. It's a rat race and at the end of the day, it's a niche compared to other ventures.

I usually buy one or two cards I don't own if there's new stuff that synergises with it. Not to invest, but to avoid having to deal with the spikes afterwards in case I want to play the card. Only time I've "invested", was when I bought 4 Squandered Resources 50 cents a pop when Gitrog released.

MTG is currently in the middle of a massive buyout for basically all Tutors. All of the best ones have already been hiked up, but some of the ones that only some people want to play in certain decks have gone unused. Eladamri's Call, Altar of Bone, and Diabolic Intent are all being eyed up right now by investors. Buy them if you need them, but do it fast.

>> No.72687488

>>72687418
Mutate is really fun in limited, but i dunno how it will play in commander.
I think there the biggest problem is singleton for a mechanic that only exists in one set, so you can’t just x4 the good ones. I’d make sure to have a bit more recursion than normal so you can rebuy your best mutate cards. Any subtheme time to focus the deck, or going more for 5c good stuff for the non-mutate support cards?

Oh neat, Jenara is the commander I picked for bant. Though I think my build ended up a little boring, mostly playing like WU control with some green ramp.

The bits of spice are biomancer’s familiar, training grounds, hadana’s climb, sphinx of magosi, faerie formation, and shapers of nature. Azorius guildmage could also be fun with the training grounds package. Also hardened scales and simic ascendancy, which seem fun. Some kind of simic-flash based build of her could also work, since her ability is a great instant speed mana outlet after holding up flash and instant spells.

>>72687532
I don’t think it’s a good idea to build mutate as voltron. Generally the philosophy they went with for mutate was that the mutate triggers are about worth a card, so that even if they remove your stack, you got value from the triggers. It might be worth exploring some cheap self bounce instead of the regular hexproof and indestructible protection spells, so you get all the components back in your hand and can get those mutate triggers again. After all, besides a few of them, mutate isn’t really about getting huge and voltron-y.

Insulting me is not a counterargument. You are attempting to insinuate that an inferior copy is just as good as the real thing, in practice. I am simply taking that statement and applying it elsewhere. The same could be done with cars, sneakers, or a chinese house made of literal cardboard.

Yes, you CAN buy things cheaper, or even make them yourself, but that does not mean it's as good as the real thing.

If you bring a proxy to a game, the only excuse is that you ordered the card and its' on the way. Other than that, you aren't playing the same game.

I've been playing with oroxies since 2012 and not once has it interfered with anything or prevented me from playing the "same game". You're the idiot for attributing some sort of inherent value to cardboard. It is literally printed cardstock and shouldn't be treated like some luxury sport since proxies are so easy and widespread.

Randoms are buying it, but there is a general lack of supply in the market. The major card sellers are all offline right now, so huge amounts of supply are not for sale. The moderate increase in demand (Trump bucks, increased interest in commander, new commander decks) means all the smaller sellers who never had much supply to begin with are getting bought out. There are buyouts happening, but the spikes and the degree to which things are spiking are significantly impacted by lack of supply while the major card sellers are shut down.

Blame WotC for not reprinting cards and supporting any format besides draft and for removing MSRP and for Secret Lairs and for not allocating adequate supply for certain products.

It's a collectible card game. There will always be a secondary market and there always has been. Investors only care about reserved list and sealed products. People buying out singles are just normies with a gambling addiction trying to hit it big.

Scream at WotC for reprints. There's been a lot of even very prominent "influencers" blatantly calling out WotC on these issues. If enough of them get on board, WotC might take notice.

>> No.72689379

>>72687488
I think the other problem is that it encourages you to mutate onto a single creature, by giving you scaling effects for number of mutations. But also punishes you for stacking mutates by making it super vulnerable to removal, and not actually giving any p/t bonus, or even really any extra abilities beyond the reward for continuing to dump your eggs into the same basket.

>Worldbuilding

Honestly the cards and book on their own are pretty good at telling the story and world building. It’s not like the most amazing thing ever but it’s more than adequate. My only complaints is that the Companion creatures don’t really have much of a presence compared to how the portrayed the apex’s with multiple cards. Also the extreme difference between the books and cards is just retarded. How does this help make you money as a company to separate your lore this why? No ones gonna but the books just because they know you’re lying on the cards.
>>Artwork
Subjective “old good new bad” take. Also the Showcase cards are fantastic.
>>Mechanics
Companions is indeed a mistake. Cycling is always welcome and mutate is a neat concept even if it’s not gonna be the a top 10 mechanic anytime soon. Idek why it took more than a decade before we got a mutate like mechanic when simic (the guild) exists.
>>EV Value
Yes, this has been the trend ever since they started this Collector booster shenanigans. Standard is affordable. That is a good thing.
>>Attendance
What is a pandemic
>>Card stock quality (godzilla promos are turbo pringles)
I’ve yet to see actual evidence of this being as extreme a problem compare to what we’ve see from secret lairs. I can at least assure that my Buy a box and box topper have minimal warping.

I will forever be thankful that Ikoria finally gave me a "power = instants/sorceries in the graveyard" legend I've been wanting since they printed pic related, but broadly speaking I agree, there's really not a ton here that I want to put into any of my decks. Which is surprising because I'm a huge timmy, 3 of my decks are variations of "Gx big stompy creatures" and there's barely anything I want to add. How did they fuck up the Kaiju plane so bad??

I bought six copies of Sands of Time to spread throughout my Commander decks specifically because I expected a lot more people to be playing Teferi's Protection after the release of Mystery Boosters

and then drafting Mystery Boosters was the very last thing we've done in paper magic.

Thanks anon. Mine also used to be just Hazoret beats and multiple attack steps, but it eventually switched to drawing cards and immediately discarding them for value.

First time in over a year im making a new deck, remember brewing new ones every few weeks.

Decided to go with Zaxara, make a control deck that plays a ton of X cost instants and sorceries.

Which approach would you guys go for? Just a ton of land ramp, or try something more exciting with a creature based ramp package? Not interested in freed from the real infinite combos, already have enough infinite combo decks.

Also, looking for spicy Zaxara tech.

I play him as well and thought about converting him into Dragonlord Ojutai, but Daxos is just too fun and cool. The deck is complete garbage fire, but it's so enjoyable to play. I got really into the idea of helming him after I fell in love with him in my Rafiq combat damage triggers-deck.

Quite literally no reason to run it. Your deck is just worse if you don't. Having alt-wincon's isnt a bad thing, it's how you close out games that have become stalemates.

I don't invest in cards or spec or purchase 100's of copies of anything in hopes it'll become a staple.

But I do follow mtgfinance to get a beat on niche cards that have tech with new cards coming out or to buy a couple copies of cards that might have huge spikes so I don't have to play dumb prices later.

Why don't you pick your wincon first, then your commander

He's a back up sword holder in Dakkon. Definitely puts in work along with his brothers Shadowmage Infiltrator and Sphinx of the Steel Wind

The win condition is casting big X-cost spells and beating people to death with huge hydra tokens, that should be pretty obvious right?
Control the board, drop a doubler like doubling season, counter spells / tap permanents with X cost spells and swing with lotsa hydras.

Be honest, what are people's reactions irl when you pull out Ixidor when Kadena is a thing?
What are your usual wincons?

But I play Ixidor because I didn't want to have more precon commanders, and mono-u morph is like... the least boring mono-u commander I could think about. It's a rather casual deck.

Admittedly, the only alt wincon is drawing my deck and winning through labman. I try to not do that 90% of the time.

I've been drafting a lot lately, and it's really interesting how certain cards mesh together in certain formats that you wouldn't otherwise see. I think commander emulates the effect, but on a different layer. Both formats are very similar because they have somewhat random components, and are incubated in relatively small groups. They then evolve into somewhat unique variations based on the types of things they play with, and the types of people in their meta. This lead to a bit of an epiphany: power levels in commander are like different draft formats, and this is the cause of people's salt. Showing up with a vintage cube deck to a pauper cube meta is a bad time, but it's more granular than that. It's like showing up to a zendikar cube with a Mox, except the power level is spread more consistently because the card pool is larger. The types of people who build good commander decks are like the people who draft well and the types that think it's pay to win are accurate, in the sense good decks tend to be more expensive, but knowledge can close the gap or raise the ceiling by a significant margin.
