If you’re like me, playing Magic only gets better with friends. While local drafts and casual play are fun, competing for high stakes just can’t be matched. This makes Team Limited GPs (alongside Pro Tours) my favorite type of Magic event. I’m willing to travel far and wide to attend one, but luckily I only needed to drive one hour to attend Grand Prix San Jose at the end of January.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my set review, and have learned a thing or two about the new cards or at least thought about them in a different way. Today I’ll wrap up the final cards, and then have some early analysis of the new limited format.
Today we round out our initial look at the limited ratings of Fate Reforged with a survey of the green cards in the set.
Today, we’ll dash through the red cards from Fate Reforged and see how good they are in limited play.
I’ll be continuing my review of all Fate Reforged cards for limited today by looking at the black cards.
Today we’ll continue with the blue set review!
I had a blast playing in the Fate Reforged prerelease and drafting nonstop during the release weekend. Now that I’ve done around 15 drafts with the new set, I’ve started to form some opinions about the cards and how the games play out. The format has certainly sped up quite a bit, but there are still a variety of viable strategies. Let’s get to it by starting with the white cards!
In an attempt to help contribute to the ever present question “How can I improve at Magic?” today I want to break down how to approach preparing for Grand Prix tournaments. This should be very helpful for any aspiring players looking to get to the Pro Tour. I’ll include some tips and tricks to help give you the best chance at spiking your next Grand Prix!
GP Baltimore was a unique experience for me. I went into the event with high hopes, as I felt like I knew exactly how to build a good Sealed deck in KTK. I thought I had a good chance of doing well in the Draft portion as well, since I’ve practiced at least a couple hundred Drafts of the set. Things were looking great after an 8-1 start Day 1, doing well with a pool that I thought was somewhat mediocre. All of a sudden, I just couldn’t win a match on Day 2, and ended up finishing outside the money. There were a lot of lessons along the way, and I’d like to tell you a series of these short lessons through this article.
