A day without rarity restrictions
I was on a flight from Orlando to Detroit, and when I switch my iPad to Airplane Mode it happened, and I still don’t know how. When I entered my deckbuilder I had the option to increase the number of any non-Starter Box card to 6 copies. Not 4, six! I wonder how/why that is built in. Regardless, I am a Magic purist at heart and I stuck to four copies. I spent about an hour rebuilding and adapting my decks and proceeded to crush the AI for a few hours with max copies of Exquisite Firecraft and Nissa, Vastwood Seer.
When I reconnected to the server the next day, I was given a painful choice - Local or Cloud. Local had zero unlocked cards and zero Gold. Cloud had 42,000 Gold and all cards unlocked. Cloud it was, and with that choice I lost my ability to play four to six copies of mythic rares. Probably for the best, as I don’t know if I could have taken those decks on ladder in good conscience. But I had a blast, and I was amazed by the power level and consistency that even our limited card pool can offer. For example, my Ramp deck was by far the slowest deck I had. Acid-Moss felt like a joke when I could be doing Jace/Chandra/Firecraft instead. I hope I magically get the ability to release the restrictions on a future plane flight.<3 CGB
