Finally made it to Mythic! Took four attempts to get that last win. At one point I lost NINE in a row and dropped back a tier. Switched up to a Red/White mid-range deck and made all the ground up.
Of course once I achieved Mythic it was a let-down. I will get one more booster pack, which you earn 1-2 of every day just playing. Decks are either Red aggro or gate-decks so that is boring as all hell.
Installed some game streaming programs such as Steamlabs OBS. Did a couple of trial tests and think I am ready for a five hour stream tonight! My deck has continued to play great and am now one win away from Diamond Rank!
Is where you will be able to catch the action as I try to get to Mythic Rank…probably next season as there are only eleven days left in preseason 1.
Still have lots of research to do on all the new cards. I will go through each color and mark down cards that either have great mana value for their effects or that have great effects for a bit more mana. I will blog my notes on each color.
Apparently the makers of Magic, Wizards of the Coast have a creator content program for streamers. I am on my way to check it out now.
YAAAAY!!! Won the promotion battle against a mirror deck that had a lot more new stuff in it. Experience prevailed!
Oh so awesome! Over 270 new cards to collect and play with/against. Already have opened four free boosters and used up some of my hard-earned wildcards to add some zest to my dominating red/green decks. For the first time ever have reached platinum tier 1! That is +21 against mythical decks. Only another +7 to reach diamond rank! Those are going to be by far my most difficult because I read a lot on the forums that the top tier is just ridiculously difficult.
If all goes well going to be spending twenty bucks hard cash and entering a couple of draft tournies. That will allow me to choose the colors and cards I mostly want. Here is the deck I am going to be running until then.
Colliision/Colossus I have used twice, both times it swung the course of the duel. Have not got Rhythm of the Wild in my hand in five games yet.
Just as addicting as Magic when you physically opened the packages. Spent alot of my food budget on these at one point in life. In addition to looking pretty cool there was a decent board game that you played with them. And of course they can be used for table-top D&D. Many times have cataloged and packaged them up for sale only to back out. Even as I near fifty I am still looking to get a weekly group going.
Well finally getting some card and mana luck as I go 9-1 at platinum Rank. Sticking to fun to play decks as opposed to control decks (every blue mage)
