Magic: the Gathering in the UK

After spending the last week desperately wanting to play lots of modern and being unable to find sufficient games due to time difference (magic-league is always empty on Asian time) I have finally realised the inevitable and know that playing on modo is probably my only option if I want to play mtg constructed. This is a very sad day for me, but I guess such is life.


However, the idea of starting from scratch with no decks and no packs is a pretty daunting task. As such, I would like any assistance in terms of advice and cards that you guys can give. In particular with cards. If anyone can lend me any of the following cards for modern I will be very very grateful (I will wait on t2 for innistrad). If you are insist on only selling the cards, I will happily pay either 1.1x the bot selling price in tix within 3 months, or 1.2x the value in a year when I next get to England.


I think I will primarily grind t2, pauper and constructed queues, and not really play limited (even though that is more fun). I want to avoid spending a very large amount on this if possible, and constructed will let me play for less. However, any other advice on how to play (even basic things like stops etc.) would be welcome.

Chris Bateman has warned me about Watery Graves and Shackles costing a lot online, in which case, some extra vendettas/river of tears and the UB m11 duals would be welcome.

can someone teach me how to submit a claim for compensation.... my modo connection died twice in the same draft (once in picking, one in game) and caused me to lose... but I have no idea the correct way to complain?
U can join our clan if u like its NewWave, all the megaballas are in it

current modo 8-4 drafting record

Played: 10

Win: 5

Semis (losing to winner): 4

Semis (losing to non-winner): 1


+2 where my connection dropped mid-draft

Does anyone know where I can find my event history? In one draft I didn't manage to play a game, so no deck is saved in my old deck folder...


Make sure it's saving your draft picks. I'm not sure about event history.

Phil... any chance I can borrow that deck sometime...

yeah sorry man, the long story short is:


1 i can no longer access modo at work due to an expired vm license

2 i can no longer access modo at home due to not having a connection in my new flat yet


it's rather inconvenient to say the least! i have tried asking some of my neighbours for their wifi keys but so far no-one has even answered their door...

I don't know if you know the cause of the connection fault but they are very good at paying compensation requests when it is their fault or might have been their fault.  You can ask an ORC for the link.
