(prob not) Oko Landstill Breakfast!!!! Artificer's Intuition Negator 77-The difficulty some players had being able to play in the PTQ last weekend and the upcoming showcase event due to the reduction in league QP prizes relative to the forced entry for those events (40QP), when it was 35 for the "playoff" events last year and open entry (P Points/Tix) for the PTQ's.  People almost have to grind a ton or find time for the awkwardly scheduled daily (ahem sorry, prelim) events. so spike a prelim or GRIND a lot 4 for a 5-0, 2 for a 4-1.. none for 3-2 so 10 5-0's, 20 4-1's or a combo I won the trophy race and barely had the 80 required for the ptq and this weekends showcase playoff Pareon Shoutout Cody W.

Dylan H-When w6 was printed many people were thinking that it would best fit in a “lands” style deck weather it is aggro Loam, lands, or a KOTR deck. Like deathrite shaman it found its best home in blue decks. Do you think the ability to put cantrips around powerful cards is going to end up putting pressure on WOTC to ban a blue card like ponder, daze, or brainstorm? Especially if they keep their current design strategy up. https://twitter.com/atoglord/status/1183774107994918914 This is great!!!!!Our discord is a great open environment Shoutouts Colors of magic-https://twitter.com/ColorofMTG Community Legacy League Plug the community Legacy league https://twitter.com/MTGLegacyLeague Community Legacy League Discord https://t.co/vA0cIqWh8C?amp=1 New Patron Shoutout Anders T Elliot F If you’re a patron and not in our discord then Social Media Steve https://twitter.com/raistlinim Lawrence https://twitter.com/LawrenceHarmon Kwame https://twitter.com/TripodGunn ThirstforKnowledgeCast https://twitter.com/ThirstForCast
