Buying into MTGO
I don't expect my local paper scene to survive the plague and I had a blast playing eternal weekend online this year. It was a nice change of pace from paper eternal weekend since there weren't people in the event that got punished for being new to the format. I also played the most recent all access event last month and realized I want to play more often then just when all access happens. For people that play MTGO, how do you go about not overspending on your hobby?
I'm a big fan of manatraders, a rental service for mtgo. One of the biggest advantages of mtgo is being able to swap decks league to league, so I try to take advantage of it as much as possible, and renting is the best way to do that. I know lots of players will buy just fetches, or just forces, or some other wideranging format staple, and use a rental service to fill in the blanks in whatever decks they want to play.
