A Short MTGA Timeline
Posted on November 18, 2019
Just wanted to share my short 2-month stint with Magic: the Gathering Arena.
- Late August 2019: I cave in and create an MTGA account. I was pretty hesitant about getting invested in MTGA, since I've played both Magic Duels and a game in the Duels of the Planeswalkers series in the past, and those games had very short lifespans.
- September 21, 2019: I give up my free-to-play status and drop $5 on the MTGA starter bundle. This is mainly so that I can purchase the M20 mastery pass before it goes away.
- Early October 2019: I craft Bant Golos because people on /r/spikes say it's the best deck in the format and I'm tired of playing budget Mono-Red Cavalcade.
- October 6, 2019: I win the Win Every Card Challenge with a 12-1 record.
- October 19, 2019: I hit Mythic with Bant Golos.
- October 21, 2019: Bant Golos is banned.
- October 24, 2019: I get 7 wins in limited for the first time.
After this point I basically stop playing because I've achieved everything I wanted from the game and the only good deck that I owned was banned.
