Fine, I'll go first
First and foremost is Red. Red is the flame and the free spirit, light and heat and the glory and lust of life in all its forms. In its negative, Red is the scorching heat of madness and anarchy, destroying for the sake of itself. Nothing is built but from the ashes of stars, and Red is the spark that lit the star in the beginning.
Second is Blue, the thinking mind, the breath of the sea and song of the skies. Blue is delight in ingenuity, cleverness, and wonder. In the negative, blue is the personal maze of despair and the hopelessness of mental servitude and psychic slavery.
Harmony in Victory! White is healing, noble deeds of society, and rule of law. Negative, White is brutal caste-based repression and slavish adherence to dogma.
The natural flow of the earth and tides, and all the living things that reside there. Green is growth and natural cycles and the raw untamed might of wild places. In the negative, green is the concept of might makes right and the cruelty of accidental consequences.
Bitter and strong, Black is the sheer power of choice. Greedy excess and wanton cruelty are the negatives here, but there is strength in the sacrifices that Black would have you make.

Depends on the manifestation. Laziness isn't an action, it's a lack of action.
White uses it to represent "off-duty" laziness. Blue uses it for stuff like pic related and "work smarter, not harder." Black offloads hard work onto some (usually undead) minions. Red uses it for playtime and distractions. Green uses it for relaxation (similar to W, except can be more general).

They have stack manipulation, removal effect that can target everything, graveyyard interaction, board manipulation, effects that make cards cheaper, elusive creatures than can attack face/pw even if the enemy have way to defend
This is how it should be, with every color getting a different "flavor", like blue can remove everything, but they don't destroy it, they put it in your hand/decks etc, their "ramp" isnt as fire and forget as green but require setting up things on board and protect them etc

I like your concept a lot, but my immediate thought was that this archetype looks like it could leverage W better than U, since W nets you access to Flagstones, Reliquary, and a 'real' removal spell in the form of Path, and that all puts you a lot closer to being a more traditional 'honest' midrange deck than a pile of countermagic does. I won't pretend pic related is 100% perfect, because I'm sure it isn't, but it seems quite close to what an optimal RGW version of your deck would look like, and in theory it'd put up more pressure and have better overall card quality. It's more vulnerable to combo due to losing the negates, of course, but since combo is on the decline right now that might not be a significant issue.

All that being said, even if I'm completely full of shit and W isn't the way to go, your sideboard would still greatly benefit from having Bojuka Bog to bring in and tutor from Reclaimer against any opposing graveyard strategies that require interaction, and the ability to loop Dunes of the Dead with Reclaimer+W&6 for a 'free' 2/2 every turn seems worthy of consideration too.

Glad ya like it, hopefully it works as well as I think it will. Another small consideration is Shenanigans over Ancient Grudge as the recursive artifact hate piece in the sideboard, since Shenanigans grows your graveyard on later uses instead of shrinking it, and if RUG ends up working out better, you'd probably want to cram a Ketria Triome into your manabase there, since the downside of it always entering tapped can be mitigated really easily if you're pulling it with Reclaimer anyway. I'd put a triome in the RGW version too, except there isn't one for those colors, so that won't be an option until whenever they decide to complete the triomes.

are you playing leagues or tournament practice matches? I've only had two matchups today, grixis control and burn and they were a lot of fun (because I got to do my degenerate shit)
I feel like if I hop onto leagues I'm gonna get absolutely fucked by people who actually know what they're doing

>> No.77651004

A little bit of both. People in leagues range from "I'm trying out Legacy again with my pet deck now that Oko is gone" to "I grind MTGO leagues for 10 hours a day". If you're new to Hogaak, it might be a good idea to stick to the practice room until you at least feel reasonably comfortable with the common lines of play.
You probably won't get stomped as hard as you think in leagues, especially since there's a decent number of people getting into Legacy for the first time right now with Oko gone. But people will more likely be prepared for graveyard shenanigans than in the practice room. That said, with how open the meta is right now, a deck like Hogaak can definitely steal matches from someone who doesn't build their sideboard with proper respect for graveyard strategies. Just make sure you have enough sideboard slots devoted to fighting through various types of hate.
Leagues are the fastest way to get better at your deck, since you'll be against people playing seriously with reasonably well-tuned decks. They're also fun if you like the competitive aspect of MTG, since you know that your opponents are trying their hardest to win as well. But there's nothing mandating that you have to play leagues, it just depends on what you want to do and how willing you are to lose 10 dollarydoos to a bad run. If you do play a league and get rekt, you can always go back to the practice room for a while and work on your skills with the deck.
So tl;dr: practice room tends more towards people chilling with decks they enjoy, leagues tend more towards people working on their skills with competitive decks.

>> No.77651188

For reference, this is the deck that won today's Legacy challenge. The format is wide open right now, so the competitive events like leagues and challenges are filled with all kinds of decks. Thankfully, at least for now, there isn't an oppressive "best deck" anywhere near the level of Snowko / RUG Delver that'll make you feel stupid for even trying to play competitively.

>> No.77651198

NTA, but this is interesting. I've already been planning to buy into MTGO and get twiddlestorm for modern, are there any ultra budget legacy decks?

>> No.77651214

I should've specified that I only feel that way about Legacy leagues, I feel very comfortable playing Pioneer leagues for example because I know how to pilot my decks, the format has the smallest card pool out of all non-rotating formats so the meta isn't very complex and I know what to expect when deckbuilding/sideboarding.

Legacy is such an old and vast format that I can't help but to feel a little intimidated, but you are completely right, the only way I'm gonna get over this is if I keep playing and learning through experience. Thanks for the advice.

>> No.77651257

>are there any ultra budget legacy decks?
NTA either but I started out with Burn and Mono Black Reanimator before moving to Hogaak. Both costed me less than 60 bucks at the time and felt good to play (at least casually).

>> No.77651500

For sure! The thing with Legacy is, even though the card pool is technically massive, only a small fraction of them see competitive play most of the time. You'll still run into gards you've never seen every so often, but once you learn the play patterns of the major archetypes, you'll still generally be able to figure out how you should handle any given situation.

Sorry, I'm a rentalcuck on MTGO and all my real life expensive cards are Chinese counterfeits, so I'm not super sure on budget options. Like the other anon pointed out, Burn and Mono-B Reanimator are both pretty cheap. IIRC, normal (non-hogaak) dredge is pretty cheap too. Unfortunately, some cross-deck staples like Force of Will and Wasteland are pretty expensive online. So I'd start by looking on something like MTGGoldfish for decks that don't play those cards.

that is true but it varies from format to format
pre-bans Pioneer leagues were always some permutation of the same 8~12 decks with one or two rogue decks every once in a while, and that was a pretty acurate representation of the format
in Mondern and Legacy things change drastically, they put multiple tier 3 decks piloted by people who are very experienced with it at the same representation of t1 decks who a lot more people are playing

I think Pauper leagues were also pretty spot on in representation in the past but I haven't looked them recently

It's the exact definition of pilpul in the talmud, and the very reason why they can distort the western laws so well they always end up owning all the most "prestigious" law practices.

Do you know where it came from, frens? The Torah explicitely give them a long serie of laws they aren't allowed to break. Something like 130 commandments. But jews don't like to obey, but also don't want to make God angry, so they created the talmud, where they twist the meanings of words so badly they can end up transforming a "yes" into a "no" and a "bad" into a "good". It's the jews' ultimate weapon.

They have 5000 years of training doing this, literally constantly lying in front of their God but in such a fashion they don't feel responsible for doing it. And you better believe that if they can do it so boldly in front of their god, doing it to the goyim is a piece of cake to them. It's what got them kicked out of so many nations so many times.

They could make a running joke of it. Etrata constantly trying to assassinate someone who's far too smart/paranoid to ever be assassinated. Then she gets slapped and sent on some assignment with her tail between her legs.

Also if I'm not mistaken the dimir guild is hevily decentralized so killing one single member would be irrelevant.

>> No.77663362

If they want me to like minorities why are all the minority characters they introduce so cringe? Etrata sounds absolutely insufferable. She looks ugly, her personality is flat and disgusting, her goals are stupid and illogical. She is simultaneously unrelatable to anybody except psychopaths and extremely uninteresting. Who the fuck is this character supposed to appeal to?
Same for Kaya, a character who is at the same time very arrogant, yet a complete fuckup, who suffers no consequences whatsoever for anything. Who is this character for?
Or the new tranny Niko, who literally cannot lose, and ascends to planeswalker status by losing on purpose for no fucking reason on the power of smugness alone. A terrible character design, with cosplay reject wardrobe, and retarded, insipid powers. What's the point of this character?
You are never fucking going to convince me that these characters make people want to play this game and engage with the story more.

We Are already there and have been for a long time. People fucking loved Avacyn and kudro and even the obzedat had a bunch of fans despite them trying to make them evil. Same goes for the boros and tibalt. Of course rooting for any of these villains means you're a fascist.

Exactly and people still love them. Magic consistently has better villains than heroes, and sometimes characters intentioned as villains like Avacyn or kudro end up coming off as heroic or likable, it's just insane, wotc is full clown mode.

>> No.77663671

It boggles the mind that Kudro was supposed to be unlikable. The moment he dies all the bonders and city dwellers are dancing in the street with prejudices forgotten, as though Kudro were the only bigot on the entire plane that everybody hated but had no choice but to obey, literally CEO of racism.
Meanwhile if you look at his actions, he is a guy who has devoted his entire life to protecting people from the monsters that want to kill them at the expense of his own happiness, who has absolute authority but has never let it corrupt him or alter his principles, and who dies with dignity because he considers himself nothing in comparison to the safety of his city.

>> No.77663707

Wizards believes we'll guzzle their crap like the good consoomers we are, so they figure they might as well pressure us to be woke in the process. They're well-aware of sunk-cost fallacy.

We like Tibalt? I don't really know much about him in-lore I just assumed he was the Joker who gave Magic what it fucking deserved.

People also loved them because the creators weren't trying too hard to make them seem awesome and cool. NuMagic heroes just come off as forced and boring because the writers don't know how to get people to suspend their disbelief.

I choose to believe the writers were lazy and don't genuinely believe that's how societies and prejudices work. Wizards doesn't financially incentivize people for trying.

Tibalt is a sadistic piece of shit who is so edgy his only friends are demons and then when society tries to kill him for being too edgy the demons bail him out and make him part demon. He is a walking fedora. The other "we live in a society" PW is Oko who literally lived in a society of lawful good faeries and they shunned him for being an asshole so now he goes around being an asshole across time and space because he cannot let go of the butthurt and is a nihilist.
They are both almost the same character only one looks like Jared Leto which means he's gay and French while the other is gay and Korean.

Tibalt was some dude on Innistrad who loved to torture and murder innocents. He got so good at it that devils started watching him work. Then yadda yadda something happened, the devils threw all the pain he'd caused on him, boom spark goes off. So naturally we find him on his home plane of Innistrad instead of causing chaos on some random planet.

aren't the humans the oppressed in innistrad though? they have less power than every other faction and are constantly preyed upon. avacyn is a woman so strong she is literally able to fight the whole world at the same time, to protect the weak and oppressed. it's the most heroic thing imaginable.

>> No.77663986

Tibalt tried to be a stitcher but was too involved in the work to actually make good skaabs. He used the knowledge to start capturing and painfully disassembling people for fun. Devils who normally burn puppies and orphans for fun would just watch him work and started to teach him their magic. Eventually some cathars caught him during his rituals and he tried to cast some devil magic to escape the cathars but he was stopped by the cathars. Some of thebdevils not yet killed by cathars and him were merged and the pain of his spell backfiring caused him to spark. He made fun of chandra for her almost boyfriend gideon dying to save a girl she was mad at.

Evil has to exist before good can exist. Good should always be reactive. If good exists at a time when there is no evil to oppose, they'll start inventing evil things to oppose. What would the Gatewatch have done if Bolas hadn't appeared? They were literally just sat around on Ravnica with their thumbs up their asses. Would they have started interfering in Ravnican politics by taking out "evil" guild leaders?

To be fair it's Nahiri's fault for Avacyn going insane, though she didn't mean to but neither did she care as her plan was to fuck Sorin's plane. Avacyn's death was supposed to be a tragedy.
Not that I'm justifying Eldritch Moon's events. What we got in return was spaghetti monsters, which I am personally a fan of, but I can't bring myself to argue that it was a fair trade.

No no, I'm talking about before nahiris meddling, where she was the head of this huge plane spanning theocracy. Also notice that black people only started really showing up on innistrad cards when she started killing indiscriminately under outside influence. Also yes, Avacyn dying was incredibly tragic.
