Demonic Tutor

Magic: the Gathering in the UK

I loved Innistrad.  I believed Maro when he said New World Order made things better for experienced players too and used Innistrad as an example.

Then Modern Masters came out and despite having to include a bunch of rares and only being allowed cards from Mirrodin to Shards it was way better than anything we've seen since Innistrad, and most of what came before, too.

It will be minimum one year until the next Modern Masters.

So, my idea is, let's make our own Modern Masters.

Random ideas that are very much half formed:

* 6 of each of 60 commons, 3 of each of 60 uncommons, 2 of each of 50 rares, 1 of each of 10 mythics is 650 cards.

* Use old cards, pre-Mirrodin, for spell-based funtimes and novelty even for players that have been playing for a while.

* Invent cards where necessary to fill holes.

* Some possible seeded archetypes: free spell necro, ug madness, gro, draw-go, astral slide, reanimator, artifact control, mill, auras, tokens, birthing pod, pox, sacrifice, prison, wizard tribal.

* Possibly include a lot of Legacy playables and call it "Legacy Masters".  What wizards would print if they said fuck it to the secondary market and the reserve list and tried to support legacy via a "Masters" release.

What do you think?  Interested in being on the development team?  Could make for some cheap Tuesday nights during the long reign of M14* ...

* = Bit of a cheap shot.  I've actually really enjoyed 3 of the last 4 core set drafts.

Yes certainly. I'll aim to get there shortly after 5.

Rock on.

Boo! What are the options for those of us who can't get there until 5:30?

Stand up in your 4pm meeting, grab your nose, shout "nose bleed! dry heat! get em all the time!" while careering to the door. Run down the street and get to the County for 5.


Tomorrow's "final" playtest version is on cubetutor for drafting and perusing.

Did one this AM, got a sick mono-red deck with SIG-SEEG COMMADEER and 2 Matrons to fetch him out.

I might have hated Kierans goblin deck last week took a matron and ring leader from him (both quite early due to nothing in my colours) but still quite funny

Ill be there about half five. Omw

Have you considered Fluctuator? It would be be pretty nifty in the cycling decks.

Fluctuator is currently out due to power level concerns. It might make a good build-around-me rare but it also might just be unbeatable. We could try it.

I'm not around on Tuesday but anyone free Mon/Wed/Thu for a Legacy Masters draft? Penderel's Oak perhaps.

So M14 has WB Enchantments and RB Act of Treason-Sac Outlet? Cheeky.
