State of the Program for December 20, 2019
 
In the News

Pioneer BansOko, Thief of Crowns and Nexus of Fate joined the format's banned list on Monday.  This is the final ban announcement for 2019, and the next Pioneer one will be January 6th of next year.  You can read about reasonings here

Other Format Bans: No changes to any formats.  Ban list announcements have been banned.  What changes here is instead of setting a date for a ban list update, they will not.  They expect changes around the same time frames, and will be on a Monday, but this allows Wizards more flexibility to make changes if need be.  Read the reasoning here

Theros Previews:  If you're looking for where the sweet previews are gonna be, check out here. For the card image gallery, go here. The Booster Fun gallery is here

Production Error for Buy a Box Promos:  The foil lands packaged with the Athreos, Shroud-Veiled are accidentally non-foil.  They are making more, and shipping them to stores.  WotC suggests checking with the store to see how that will be handled.  Full info is here

Challenger Decks:  Back with a brand new invention, Challenger decks are precons meant for tournament play.  Releasing in April of 2020, they will contain Theros cards.  Will the release of seemingly endless products for Magic ever stop?  Yo, I don't know, but with challenger decks, you should be able to take tournaments to the extreme and rock your deck like a vandal, light up the stage and wax a chump like a candle. 

Last State of the Program for 2019:  I am going on "vacation"  No, I am not actually leaving, but I am not writing anything, not a personal blog, not a food review, not a game review or strategy article.  I get my son for ten days this year, and he leaves on the Fourth of next year.  As much as I would like to say I would have the time to write about the news, or do prices, I really just want to spend time with him.  Expect State of the Program back on the tenth. 

The Timeline

This is a list of things we have been promised, or we just want to see coming back. Another good source for dates and times is the calendar and the weekly blog, while the best source for known bugs is the bug blog which appears sporadically on MTGO.com. Not listed, but important: Wizards offers either one or two online MCQs each weekend, with qualifiers for limited MCQs running the days immediately prior to the MCQ.

The Hot Take Corner

This list is a list of my ten favorite cards of the year. 

Hydroid Krasis:  Yeah it's a powerful card with a powerful cast trigger.  It helps to stabilize the board and gives you cards, life and a must answer flying threat. 

Electrodominance:  I love doing cool things, and Electrodominance, killing a thing and then casting a spell for free is amazing.  Paired with the Time Spiral free spells it's just absurd.  I've cast Restore Balance, Ancestral Vision and Living End with this, just taking over the game each time.  I actually haven't gotten to cast Crashing Footfalls with it yet, but I sure do like the idea. 

Ashiok, Dream Render:  Great against the Scapeshift decks that popped up after Field of the Dead was printed, this walker does one of my most favorite things, mill cards.  It also fills your graveyard up while exiling your opponent's, you know, if you're in to that kind of thing. 

Causalities of War:  I love a versatile spell that can kill lands.  It may cost six mana, but goodness, it sure does do a lot with that mana.  It's not quite Wildfire but getting to blowup your opponent's best stuff is really swell. 

Crashing Footfalls:  I haven't actually cast this card yet, like I said earlier.  I do however really enjoy that the cycle of free stuff is back to being complete after Hypergenesis was rightfully banned in Modern. 

Llanowar Tribe:  Why this card?  Simple, it made, to me, one of the most amazing spoilers of the year.  Dana Fischer and MTG: Young Mage teamed up to create this masterpiece.  The card itself is just three Llanowar Elves put together, and isn't super exciting, but watching the joy from Dana preview this card was incredible.  For Magic, the future is in the children, and there are some pretty good hands here. 



Rest in Peace:  Yes, Rest in Peace is a reprint, no, I do not care.  When Gideon's spellbook was released this year, in June, I was having an incredibly hard time with therapy.  Progress had been slow, I had hit a plateau, and to be honest, it's still something I am struggling with.  However, I kept pushing myself, chipping away, and eventually, I broke.  I had to take time off of therapy, I was overwhelmed and couldn't do it, it wasn't working, I was wasting money, and it was time to give up.  I got my shipment of these right before my final appointment was supposed to happen, I was going to quit.  I opened up a playset of the spellbook, and to see if I got sweet foils, and a small piece of cardboard with a quote from a fictional character was on it. 

"When the fight seems hopeless, fight harder." 

That little piece of cardboard was pinned up on my wall, and I see it every day, before I sit down for work, before I go outside of exposure therapy, when I'm feeling at my highest and lowest.  It is kinda silly I know, but to see something I identify with motivate me and give me hope, even if it didn't end super well for Gideon.  He deserved better, much like Dack Fayden. 


Cavalier of Flame:  The win condition of choice for Fires of Invention decks draws cards when it comes in to play and deals damage when it leaves.  Most importantly when it comes in to play it pumps your team and gives them haste, which in the Jeskai Fires is a nice way to deal a ton of damage quickly. 

Repeated Reverberation:  I cannot tell you how many hours of my life I have spent trying to get this card to work with Fires of Invention and stuff like Demolish.  When it works, and you destroy three lands for free, it's just the bee's knees.  When it doesn't do that, it's copying loyalty abilities and getting more value than Great Value. 

Fae of Wishes:  I love a good wishboard, and with it's ability, it's super cheap to reuse. 

Cutting Edge Tech

The theme this week is whatever my favorite deck was in the format this year.  So for Standard, it may not be current Standard, there might be some banned cards mentioned in other formats, just trying to review the year. 

Standard
: I've played some version of this deck nearly all year long.  It's not great, but it's a lot of fun for me.


Legacy:  As long as I am alive, some version of Belcher will be among my favorite Legacy decks. 


ModernElectrodominance makes a showing here.  This deck has a lot of stuff going on here, and takes full advantage of the suspend mechanic.  It's also not great, but a ton of fun.  That may be an issue I have to look in to as per why I am not winning a lot of matches this year. 


Pauper:  I have fond memories of Tireless Tribe from it's days of combo card in the Extended format.  To see it have a home in Pauper is awfully nice for me. 


Pioneer:  Again, another deck that is fun, but not great.  One of the first things I did when Pioneer was announced was look at Cat Pact decks, and this one has a great game for you if you don't find Harmless Offering, in that you can get rid of the Demonic Pact that might kill you with so many things in it! 


Vintage: I haven't played a single match of Vintage in months, but I love the idea of milling the opponent out with Hedron Crab, Fastbond, and Oboro, Palace in the Clouds

Around the Web

MTGOTraders YouTube:  Did you know that MTGOTraders.com has a YouTube page with videos added Monday, Wednesday and Friday?  Well if not, now you do, and you can find it here

Card Prices
Note: all my prices come from the fine folks at MTGOTraders.com. These are retail prices, and generally the price of the lowest priced, actively traded version. (Prices for some rare promo versions are not updated when not in stock, so I skip those.) You can get these cards at MTGOTraders.com web store, or from their bots: MTGOTradersBot(#) (they have bots 1-10), CardCaddy and CardWareHouse, or sell cards to MTGOTradersBuyBot(#) (they have buybots 1-4). I have bought cards from MTGOTraders for a decade and a half now, and have never been overcharged or disappointed.
 
Standard Staples: We have some old favorites back on the list this week as it is appears at least the Jeskai Fires and Simic Ramp are the most played Standard decks right now, and that's just basing them off of the Cavalier choices from Core Set 2020!

The Good Stuff
The following is a list of all the non-foil, non-promo cards on MTGO that retail for more than $25 per card. These are the big ticket items in the world of MTGO.  The list is interesting, at the least. This is interesting to me because a lot of these cards have been reprinted more than once, and they are still commanding a high price.

The big number is the retail price of a playset (4 copies) of every card available on MTGO. Assuming you bought the least expensive versions available, the cost of owning a playset of every card on MTGO is approximately a number that I cannot figure out still. I have actually asked Pete to do this for me, because Open Office is weird, and I have no idea what I am doing, and I am pretty close to just being a dog in a labcoat.

Nevermind, ignore all of that, Pete got it done for me, because he is just the dang best. The big number this week is $18,550.  Last week it was $18,505. Got a nice 45 dollar increase.
 
In Closing

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season, and enjoy the New Year in safety and in good health.  As for me, I am going to do so many great things with Cassius while he is here, so thanks for understanding why I am going on break, and keep slinging spells!  Prices were done on Friday morning!
