I haven't played Duels so I couldn't say.  I know Arena is just like real collecting and dueling with the exception that you don't get to keep your cards in the real world.  But it's just as fun as the real thing.

Not much at present as it keeps locking up - I'll delete it and reinstall it.

I'll try again later. If I still have a problem, I'll see if they have an help desk.

The Cube Draft is here!  You can log in and look at the cards that will be available to draft.  Just a reminder that you don't get to keep any of them in your collection.

Oh bugger! I'd forgotten about that - I need to reinstall it and see if I can get it running.

I really hope you can, bob.  It's the closest to having a collection of real cards and the ability to construct any deck your cards will allow and a host of opponents at your beck and call that you can get in a game.  And I have played at least three iterations of Magic in a digital format.  Including, incidentally, Duels.  Which I didn't even know I owned until I was in my Steam library and saw that not only did I own it, but, I have played four hours of it.

I think that Duels is a free download anyway. I do seem to remember that you and I played it at least once, quite a while ago though.

You give it a try yet, bob?  I'd pester Bison, but, he's an infrequent contributor.  Goes with creating your own baseball team.

lol - I've had a few issues with Windows 10 since the last up-date, but now there is another one, presubably to fix the one that caused the problem in the first place! I'll try it again though.

Bison, next time you roll through here, I could use some tips on booster draft deckbuilding.  bob, if you've got any, I am all ears.  Anyone else?  Speak up.

Today was the release of the new Core 2021 set on Arena and in stores.  I've had a look at it and it seems good, but, there are a few overpowered cards from the get go.  I turned in a couple of Mythic Rare wild cards in Arena to land two incarnations of the same White Planeswalker, Basri.  He puts a lot of +1/+1 counters on creatures with the more powerful incarnation being able to give all your creatures +2/+2 and Flying for the Turn.  Already won a duel like that this evening.  I suspect the new low cost bot Draft will be 2021.  Or at least I hope it is.  I'll know tomorrow when I log back in.  G'night, folks!
