    I think everyone expects to have a full collection right away for free. They want to play every deck anytime the meta changes. Expeditions are just meant to test your limited skills really.

    I average three champions a week from Legends of Runeterra reward system. I only play 3 wins per day,  1 quest and expedition per week (even if I get seven wins I just save the shards for a champion.)

    There is a super fun event called Ravnica Guild Battle atm. They provide the decks and its a fun way to explore archtypes.

    MTG is fine as F2P. I was F2P for 2 months with Mono Red and Mono Black deck. I then made a clear break from HS (no more real money for it.) I was able to climb to Plat with Mono Red (Experimental Frenzy is broken.)

    I was able to craft some fun experimental decks from free cards and packs. Now i spend about $200 which has given me enough to craft 4 competitive decks with either drafts or pack purchase. The more you learn how to play magic the better rewards you will get. I have done about 35 drafts now and about 14 of them have generated profits and the rests either break even or return me about 50% of my investment.

    Its true you will always lack rare cards above everything else. I also didnt bother to craft anything that would rotate next expansion. Magic is a better place to spend time and resources. HS is a fun game but it can be so tilting due to RNG. Just loosing a game based on the power level of a Death Knight or getting Conjure Giant because you didnt have removal on turn 4. (I have a full collection on HS, however moving forward i will only collect golds and packs for cards.)

    Also I have spend $200 on a game that I have played for about 10 hrs a week for about 3 months now. That is less than a nice dinner or beer a day.

    Quote From Fluxflashor

    Well that's certainly a huge increase compared to before!

    I really still don't know how I feel about battle passes in card games. It's certainly a cool way to incentivize people to login while spending money since it is just too good of a deal, but I don't know, I feel like it can contribute to more burnout. I burned out of Apex Legends before I finished my battlepass and felt bad I was 20 levels away so I bought them. Now I'm not even playing season 2 because I feel like I'll be missing out if I don't buy the pass but I don't have the time to complete it. I'm in a similar boat with Magic where I'm playing much more Hearthstone atm so the pass almost doesn't make sense, maybe.

    Regardless, good on them for actually hearing the community.

    I agree. The battle pass is just too much temptation and forces you to play a lot more Fear of Missing Out on cosmetics. They said that they will remove the purchase of levels from the in your face temptation. Magic has provided a much needed break from HS.

    Progression

    Let’s look at these changes in practice:

    • If you complete your quests and earn all your weekly wins, you’ll be able to reach Level 67 by the end of set, even if you only play once a week (before any codes or events). Previously, you’d only be able to reach Level 32.
    • If you play more than once per week, you’ll be able to reach at least Level 74 by the end of a set (before any codes or events). Previously, the minimum level you could be expected to reach was 46.

    HS is still fun here and there. However I do not enjoy it nearly as much as MTG. I think that the point of MTG is that you can only focus on a few decks instead of every single card in the game. I mainly play casual and get to Diamond on Ladder. In casual there are a lot of decks to play against, I play around with the collection I have. I did use about $150. (I have spent about $600 in Hearthstone over the last four years. There a lot of dead cards in HS that never see play at all.)

    I looked around and drafted with a purpose not 100% to win every run but to create the decks I wanted. Took a while to decide what I wanted to choose. I decided on Mono-Red, Feather and Simic Ramp. I was able to get those decks with in three weeks. I had about 8 drafts that went 5-7 wins, which make it a profit or break even ( I also had some 1-2 wins.)

    I did a lot of reading and learning in order to get what I wanted. Mainly my idea was to get a control deck (ramp simic), Midrange (feather), aggro mono-red.

    I am going to wait and see if i want to chase after white winnie or just save for Esper (but they are loosing a few key tools in the fall.) I refuse to craft anything that will rotate in the fall.

    There will not be any money spent on HS anymore. The main reason I played HS was because of mobile however playing complex decks on mobile is just too much. So now that I play on my computer MTG is the way to go.

    1. right click on Notepad - select Run as Administrator
    2. answer "yes" to the pop-up about allowing changes - blah blah bla
    3. open the file C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts (you'll have to change the file-type drop-down to "all" instead of txt files since hosts doesn't have an exention)
    4. go to the bottom and paste the next line into it
    5. 40.84.40.16 client.arenagame-a.east.magic-the-gathering-arena.com
    6. save and close
    7. Start MTG arena

    Absolutely man! I’m in the exact same boat. However, we’re pretty safe to craft strongcards from the newer sets that we know will remain in Standard. Most recent was another “Experimental Frenzy”, since for sure there will an updated mono-red aggro that will use it!

    I will want to craft the Izzet Phoenix Drake deck. But i am still going to wait and grind with mono red.

    Mono red aggro may have some problems in standard...

    a tech against Red Deck Wins, however its not as strong against other decks. They are loosing Lyra in the rotation so that hurts white for sure.  We will see.

    I have the standard Mono-Red deck. I was just playing around with other cards I have. Currently I have just bought 90 packs of War of Sparks and intro bundle. I am waiting to craft cards till the release of Core Set 20. Still trying to understand what is going to happen on the rotation. Seems like they will introduce a "wild" game mode and keep "standard" with the rotation.

    I am also not sure what to craft I am sitting between Nico Bolas deck and Izzet Drakes. (I honestly just dont want to craft anything that will rotate in september.)

    So model after the shell of mono red with some more late game.

    Most people think i am playing aggro mono red and over commit resources. Kind of a fun deck.

    I might get this set unsure atm. I know for sure its kind of worth it for the price, in the sense of wild card progression. HS is not getting anymore money from me! Team 5 just cant help themselves with the run away decks. (Playing Pogo Rogue atm and its just silly.) Well Magic also has its own run away crazy decks, however I feel that you have far more control over your interactions.

    Based on my current collection I was able to make a deck that performs decent.

     

    1 Banehound (WAR) 77
    2 Healer's Hawk (GRN) 14
    1 Vengeant Vampire (G18) GP3
    1 Dreadhorde Invasion (WAR) 86
    2 Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord (WAR) 217
    13 Swamp (RIX) 194
    11 Plains (RIX) 192
    2 Ajani's Welcome (M19) 6
    2 Ajani's Pridemate (WAR) 4
    1 Divine Arrow (WAR) 10
    1 Kinjalli's Sunwing (XLN) 19
    2 Territorial Hammerskull (XLN) 41
    1 Resplendent Angel (M19) 34
    3 Leonin Warleader (M19) 23
    1 Shalai, Voice of Plenty (DAR) 35
    1 God-Eternal Oketra (WAR) 16
    1 Angelic Guardian (G18) GP1
    1 Eviscerate (DAR) 91
    2 Ravenous Chupacabra (RIX) 82
    2 Murder (M19) 110
    1 Mentor of the Meek (M19) 27
    1 Dusk Legion Zealot (RIX) 70
    2 Blood Divination (M19) 86
    1 Liliana, Dreadhorde General (WAR) 97
    1 God-Eternal Bontu (WAR) 92
    3 Orzhov Guildgate (RNA) 253

    Feels a little bit like a mix or aggro and mid range.
