Noob hits mythic: suggestions for new players and question to experienced

2021.11.29 11:40 the_snow_remembers Noob hits mythic: suggestions for new players and question to experienced

Hi everyone,
So I've just started playing MTGA 1.5 month ago and hit Mythic in Bo1 yesterday night (93%) with not too much grinding (just a casual play every couple of days). Long read beneath.
Here is my strategy on hitting Mythic rank for new players in Bo1 based on a number of ideas I learned in this community (many thanks to everyone sharing):

  1. get the one-time welcome bundle and get a mastery pass.
  2. collect all the free stuff from the MTGA promocodes available.
  3. after you're done with the colour challenge make sure you upgrade the readymade decks you enjoy playing with the suggestions available. I used the Hello Good Game youtube reviews to construct Avalanche upgrade and later the Savage Lands upgrade. Important thing is that you don't need to get any new cards for it - it's just the rearrange of what you get in other colour challenge decks. Basically, the upgraded deck should let you reach the platinum rank without much trouble. Also, during this process try to do the daily and weekly challenges as many people here suggest.
  4. next you do the following: -4.1 open all the packs you got from p.2 and spend most part of the gold you got during your play from p.1 and p.3 on packs and open it as well. So far you should get substantial number of wildcards. -4.2 check current tier 1 meta decks and look which decks are best fit to your current collection in terms of the cards available. Most probably this will be monoclored decks as they require much less rare lands (so it's probably monowhite, monogreen or monored). Btw, use the assistant for it as it saves much time ( in my case). -4.3 craft the key missing cards of the deck you choose on the previous step using your wildcards and use cards you already have to substitute the rest keeping the same mana curve.
  5. Basically, that's it - most probably after p.4 you should have an almost complete tier 1 deck that makes you hit the mythic. In my case it was the mono-green T1.
And here is a question where I'd appreciate feedback from experienced MTG players (which I'm definitely not):
Before crafting the mono-green T1 I decided to save my wildcards and play a semi-T1 deck (i.e. using two Faceless Haven instead of four or using three Esika's Chariot instead of four, etc.). My idea was that it should allow me to craft another completely different semi-T1 deck, say Dimir Control. So I had a really good time with this semi-T1 mono-green reaching Diamond 2 and got stuck around it (1 win 1 loss and that's forever). In the end of the day I finally spent some more wildcards and completed the deck to the actual T1. I was shocked how much the behavior of the deck changed - it's like I started driving a sportscar after a family van. It simply took me 40 minutes to reach mythic from diamond 2. So the question to those of you who play T1 decks - is it the same feeling with other, especially, non-aggro T1 decks?

Since I don't have the energy to look for what I specifically want, imma use a reverse uno card, come check if I'm what you're looking for instead.
So here's what I have on my table: I'm very outgoing and always on the go for some adrenaline rush and hence I'm usually out with the boys, esp my pops who shares with my interest in exotic pets and extreme recreational activities. But if ya prefer lazy friday indie rock afternoon jam with not-so-bad homecooked meals and cross out a film on your list, I'm a film buff and would love to share my insights too! Basically, I give off that boyish vibe but I most of the time dress like your girl next door who does a lot of shit to keep myself entertained.
But I know you're more interested in where I study and how I look so here ya go:
-i study science in one of those unis (and yes, im going to grad school)
-slim, 5'6, glasses, ur typical discord girl who cuts and dyes her hair when she feels like it

What I only ask from you is to be around my age, taller, well articulate and a joy to be with!
Just to clear the air, I prefer something long-term casual but I'm not closing doors in taking things to another level. It's just that it takes time for me to warm-up and gauge things. Rest assured tho that I can be a great friend if u are too.

2021.11.29 11:40 sneedsmemesanddreams How the Show Made Cowards Out of Heroes.

I've seen a lot of show-defenders take issue with me calling Show-Rand and Show-Mat and Show-Perrin "cowards."
So, I decided it was time to explain why they are objectively cowards.
What is a coward? Is a coward someone who runs away from danger? Well, no. Someone who runs away from danger is usually just a smart person. Is it someone who hides from monsters? No, hiding from monsters is unusually the smart thing to do.
A coward is someone who gives up. A coward is someone who is so paralyzed with fear that they don't use their mind and deal with the situation appropriately. They freeze up, they hide away, they stand back and do nothing.
We don't usually call little children cowards, because little children are not expected to use their minds in emergency situations. They are not expected to keep their wits around them. It's not cowardly for a toddler to hide under the blanket.
But adults are different. We expect adults to react with intelligence and use the resources at hand to deal with whatever happens. And when they don't it is cowardice.
When the Trollocs attack, what does Perrin do? He runs into his home and bars the door.
"But, Sneed! Perrin isn't a warrior! You would run from the monsters too!"
You missed the most important part. Perrin doesn't just run away. Perrin traps himself inside a wooden house while he is surrounded by Trollocs.
What is Perrin going to do when and if the Trollocs just surround his house and set fire to it?
He's going to burn to death, along with his wife; or be slaughtered easily as he tries to escape the flames. Because he was so frightened that he never thought of what the Trollocs would obviously do if they have him surrounded in a house and he bars the door.
He didn't just flee into the forest, where he might have had a chance to escape; or better yet, run away toward toward woman he knows is an Aes Sedai and can probably protect him. Which is what a normal man would do.
He certainly doesn't try to arm himself and fight back, or gather other men to fight back. Which is what a courageous man would do.
He was so overwhelmed and consumed with fear, that he gave up. He stopped using his brain. He effectively tried to hide himself under a blanket and pretend the monsters didn't exist. Which is what a cowardly man does.
What does Rand do when a woman is pointing a sword at him. He turns around, bangs on a locked door and screams for help.
"But, Sneed! She has a sword pointed at him! If he fights back she'll just slash him!"
You missed the important part. Rand didn't try to reason with the woman. He didn't plan a counter-attack. He turned his back on a person with a sword pointed at him and screamed for help.
What would happen if she really did want to kill him? He just presented his back to her. She could easily run him through, or slash his back, or cut off his head.
Because he was so consumed with fear that he didn't think about what was happening. He just impotency banged on a door and begged someone else to come save him. Like a coward.
And then when he finally does escape, he doesn't try to arm himself and fight back. He doesn't meet up with Mat and try to make a plan to ambush her. He just keeps running and screaming, until he gets ambushed by her.
That is the behavior of a coward. That is the behavior of someone consumed with fear and panicking.
This one is a bit tougher, because during the Trolloc attack, Mat actually does have some children to take care of.
So we have to take all of Mat's various actions into consideration.
His first instinct is to run into a building with everyone else and hide. That is the same cowardice as Perrin, but I'll give him the benefit of the doubt and say he's trying to find his sisters.
Then he realizes that his sisters aren't there, and he actually does a brave thing and goes to find them. Okay, this is looking pretty good.
Then he doesn't send them off to hide away while he fights back, but runs away with them. Okay, so maybe he's not exactly brave, but at least he isn't a coward, right?
Okay, well let's look deeper at Mat's character.
What does Mat do when he is poor and hungry? Does he ask his friends for help? Nope. He steals from his other friends.
What does Mat do later, after Shadar Logoth. He whines to Rand that he wants to go back home. He knows that going home means abandoning Egwene and Perrin, but he doesn't care. He knows that going home probably means his village is doomed, because the Trollocs will return, but he doesn't care.
What does he do when Thom steals from him? Does he fight back? No. Does he try to make a plan to get his money back? No. Does he take the offer of work that the bartender gives him? No.
He whines about going back home, and then slinks off to steal from a dead man.
Show-Mat's cowardice isn't as obvious as the others, because it is a different type of cowardice. A deeper kind of cowardice. It is a moral cowardice, rather than an instinctual one.
Show-Mat always takes the easy way out. If he needs money, he steals it. If things get rough, he whines about going home. If Trolloc attack, he runs into the forest and leaves his village behind. He never stands up to do what is right, because it is right.
"But, Sneed! Mat always took the easy way out in the books!"
No. Mat only took the easy way out when that was a reasonable option.
When his friends are in danger, Mat kills the man hunting them and storms the Stone of Tear by himself to rescue them while they're imprisoned by Black Ajah.
When Mat is hungry on the road to Caemlyn, he juggles and does farm-work.
When Mat is trying to escape from a battle, he rides into the thick of it to save a group of soldiers from an ambush.
When the Seanchan attack, Mat dives right into the center of the invasion to look for Olver.
Book-Mat is lazy when he can be, but he is supremely courageous. He puts his life on the line, constantly, not for any other reason than it is the right thing to do.
It is an objective fact that rhe show has presented Rand and Mat and Perrin as cowards. Rand and Perrin as instinctual cowards who freeze up when they're in physical danger, and Mat as a moral coward who always takes the easy way out.

2021.11.29 11:40 Sweetjill3 I feel insecure after finding out that my boyfriend cheated on me.

I (25F) was with my boyfriend (25M) for 3 years and found out that he cheated on me during our relationship. I saw his text messages to women about how much he enjoyed having sex with them. He told one in particular that nothing gets better than the sex they had. I hate knowing how much he enjoyed having sex with another woman. It hurts. It makes me wonder how much he enjoyed having sex with me in comparison to those other women. This has put my self confidence down & if I had to have sex again I would feel like sh*t afterwards wondering if I did a good job. He’s stated that he love having sex with me but I still don’t feel good. I broke up with him and now I’m just left with this terrible feeling…he used to say that I was everything that he had wanted..yet he still cheated on me.

At 6'0 180 lbs my LEAF Atom LT is pretty snug, especially so with a mid layer underneath (fleece, hoody, etc.) so I'm wondering for mixed usage with sometimes just a tshirt, sometime mid layer underneath, should I get M or L for the Cold WX LT?
