Shops is being underrepresented right now likely due to the tangle wire bug (it only taps half as many perms as it should).

I never saw this bug.

Also, waste/tangle wire are infinity tix on Mtgo, that probably has something to do with the dearth of Shops on MTGO too.

This bug definitely exists. I have played several matches against wire that have included the symptoms described above.

The current theory is that wire works correctly if untapped but is bugged if tapped.

I never understood why people didn't grab those 20th anniversary Tangle Wires. The big bot chains don't want to have any part of them, but you could find them for 7-9 tickets versus the $30 Nemesis ones. And it's not like 'wooo old card face' is important in a deck that's otherwise 90% new card face.

When Opponent has a Necro on Board for example, or if you can Snapcaster and Bolt their own Jace, force them to Anc you, Fetch and Tinker into nothing... kind of that.

So the message I got was wizards isn't a bad company they are just incompetent, which to be quite honest kind of is the definition of a bad company.  How do they not have the resources to invest in MTGO when hasbro is over a 4 billion dollar company?  And not giving the MTGO programmers the information they need to properly program a set is just plain stupid.  If wizards actually cared about MTGO maybe it could be a decent product it doesn't seem like that's ever happening at this point though as it's been around for over 10 years now and they still haven't allocated enough resources to it.

The only thing I'd have to disagree on is Strip Mine.  That card is restricted for a reason and can be amazing.  I always run it MD in any deck I play, no matter what.  At worst, it's +1 mana.  At best, it can flat out win a game: your opponent mulls aggressively, say to 5 or 4, and then you kill his only land drop (basic or not); your opponent opens with shop, chalice 0, sphere/trini...and you strip the only shop he had; your opponent mulls for bazaar (like they always do) and get 1 activation off it before you remove their engine leaving them with crap in hand and grave.

These situations happen frequently enough.  Let's also not forget times it is solid, if
not game-winning: vs. Dark depths, karakas (if you're on oath), factory, or just color screwing a multicolored deck by cutting off one color.

Run strip main...always.

Nice report Vasu, next time i'll fetch the right things lol.   Agree with the hands matching up comment, it's less turn one wins than some might think.

It sounds like Loucks was a bad hire after reading his spiel.

Sounds like a case of really bad timing. He probably would have been a much better hire if his personal situation had been more stable. Sometimes it happens that you hire the right person for a job, and then an event in their personal life affects their ability to perform up to expectations. In my late teens/early twenties, I split up with my girlfriend of 3 years right at the beginning of my final year of college, and flunked out as a result. I just couldn't focus anymore and needed a break to get myself together. I'm pretty sure it's normal for these sorts of circumstances (bad breakup, divorce, death in the family, etc) to affect an individual's ability to perform at work, so I think it's a little harsh to say they shouldn't have hired him in the first place (if that's what was implied).

I appreciated his self examination and brutal honesty. He wasn't ducking accountability. He understands where he could have made better choices and never slighted his employer. He sounded grateful for the opportunity and the experience.

In regards to his comments on the client, it's somewhat encouraging to hear that Wizards has a lot of good people working there, and equally discouraging that the suggested problems revolve around bureaucracy and poor workflows. Those issues generally don't get fixed easily. Anyone who has worked for a large company understands this.
