I only recently got into Magic (like three weeks ago). I did a virtual prerelease event for Ikoria with some friends on Tabletop Simulator and had a great time. I'm really loving the new mechanics in Ikoria.

I finally moved close to a card shop and was excited to go to an event there and maybe have people in the same town as me to play Magic with for the first time in ages, and then of course that event was called off due to current events and now who knows if that place will ever actually reopen? Also missed getting to do the Ikoria prerelease with my friends who usually join me for those.

If they do release Arena for iOS sometime this year, though, at least I'll be able to play that. (Yes, I know, emulation, no thanks.)

I once played but i never really liked it. Countless people are obsessed with it at my school. I only really like one card from it, the rest are bit too intense for my liking.

I built a red-green deck for the prerelease event and it held up pretty well. I also played some sealed Two-Headed Giant with friends last weekend and built a green-black-white deck iirc
That is awesome! Thoughts on the new companion mechanic? Did you use it?

Not gonna lie I'm jealous, the only people that played magic at my school were my friends and me

Didn't get any companion cards, but I built my whole deck around having as many creatures with Mutate as possible and think that's an extremely fun mechanic.

I preordered two physical prerelease boxes and should get those next month but I'll probably be playing some more on Tabletop Simulator before then. I could maybe invite you to the next event that my friend hosts?

Ooh, Mutate's exciting! It's flown under the radar a little because of how, ah, controversial Companion is being.

I was planning on getting some prerelease boxes for me and my dad but they would get like a week before I leave for my internship (if it even happens), so I'm still unsure.

I've been playing mostly EDH on Tabletop Simulator and have built this deck in paper. I have also been using this deck and hope to physically own it in the future. Both are great at allowing me to amass a huge army of snakes, and the latter contains a multitude of infinite combos.

I want to make a Modern deck as well (technically I have one with some of the leftover snakes from my Commander deck, but I've been looking to make one that's a bit more competitive). I'm looking to make an Infect deck, and I ordered some proxies to fill in for some of the more expensive cards until my budget allows me to splurge on cards again.

My friend hosted a virtual prerelease event for Ikoria on Tabletop Simulator, then did one for Core 2021 (which ILS also joined), so naturally, if anyone is interested in participating in a Zendikar Rising event next month let me know.

got into mtg back around return to ravnica, but not being able to drive made it difficult to go to lots of events, so i ended up falling off a bit :( been trying off and on to get back into it but normally just end up either doing simulated stuff or going to sealed events (bc i’m trash at draft don’t @ me)

haven’t tried out Tabletop Simulator before but would be interested if that’s a thing that other people also do!
