This week on Limited Resources, Marshall and Luis go through two Crimson Vow Drafts in preparation for the upcoming Arena Draft Open!
What’s more important when designing future sets? Innovation is important to keep the game fresh, but without balance power creep and narrow strategies can take over. We each ponder which is more important, how this trade-off has affected past sets, and what might be coming in the future. We also ponder krakens.
Human drafts have finally arrived on Magic Arena, and people (especially Jamie) couldn’t be happier. Was it a make or break necessity for Ikoria? We discuss how people are returning in droves after frustration with bot drafting and what that means for players. We also say goodbye to our DCI numbers.
After a quick celebration for human drafts on Arena, we start the deep dive into Ikoria. To review some of the most powerful cards, we decide to pit them against each other. We review the mythic Apex beasts, the Mythos cycle, and the new planeswalkers in a head to head elimination to find out which will be the last cards standing.
Getting to Mythic Rank is every competitive Arena player’s goal, and this week Jamie made the top 10! But how hard do you have to work to maintain it, and what happens if you can’t? Jamie shares her experience with us. We also say good day to some cards hit by the B&R and ponder the solitude of Arena.
