Product Suggestion Leave Historic Alone
With the new Alchemy format, can we please have it separated from Historic? You are going to be nerfing cards considering the standard environment, please leave them alone for Historic decks.
The whole concept of Alchemy cards being allowed in other formats besides Alchemy makes other game play not enjoyable. If someone wants to use Alchemy cards then it should only be in the Alchemy format. The whole Alchemy concept is idiotic at best moronic at worst. Formats outside Alchemy should be kept pure to the printed cards.
So Explorer is the format when I can play eternal paper magic. Great!
I can't play the Historic Anthology cards that I want to in that format.
Spent loads on them.
THIS is why I haven't bought any more of your anthology card sets, and nor will I in the future.
Get this Alchemy **** OUT of here! Stop nerfing stuff.
You've pretty much made it so it is not worth paying for anything.
As soon as I come up against an Alchemy deck in Historic, I ALT F4.
I bet that's a pain for the other player, but quite frankly I don't care at all.
WHEN WILL YOU LEARN?
WHEN WILL YOU LISTEN?
I wish I could just take a big **** on your desk.
I cannot agree more. It stink having Alchemy in history. Playing explorer instead but well, dont have all the nice cards i could buy and play with.
I fully support the idea. Although i do not like the Alchemy set, there might be people enjoying it just fine. Maybe having Alchemy be a specialized version of Historic would be a solution. I'd like to use Historic Brawl as a playground to test out the deck I prepare IRL but let's say having all of the Alchemy mechanics IRL is not quite doable and facing people using them does not provide a realistic feedback for such practice.
please do consider the idea.
This suggestion has garnered almost 2k votes and surely between Important to Critical urgency since it was posted by the end of last year. A lot will agree that Alchemy was been one of the worst decisions WotC has made in recent times, if not the worst. And a part of me agrees as, arguably, this takes away from finally putting Pioneer into Arena and making Historic more intriguing with newer cards to make the metagame exciting. As much as I also agree that it has been a horrendous endeavor to try and actually force Alchemy down our throats, with a few consecutive Alchemy events and even its own Mastery Pass, I do (try to) understand the reasoning behind their choice. The few times I played Alchemy it was indeed fun and I enjoyed a bit. There is an audience out there for the format.
Historic in itself is not just a format but it has a meaning in its name. Players get to play with history and experience history in digital form, to feel what it's like using these cards that made history. But with Alchemy added to the mix, then it sets a precedent that ruins entirely the essence of the format. This has already happened with the "rebalancing" of Unholy Heat and Dragon's Rage Channeler. Both cards are now major players in the formats that already play them. But those very cards getting rebalanced feels...dirty. Wrong. Granted the rebalanced versions of those cards should have been what they are from the very beginning, especially Unholy Heat as red should NEVER have a card that easily and very efficiently takes out a large creature, for only 1 red mana. But, I digress.
I may just be spewing words onto a brick wall and beating a dead horse at the same time at this point. But as a fan who loves MTG very much, it hurts.
And if anything, if Alchemy is about rebalancing/changing cards, banning Grinning Ignus completely spits on this aspect. So...what's the point then.
Please just keep alchemy cards out of historic all together. I want a legacy format without all these made up cards.
I concur. Give us a historic format without alchemy cards. Better yet, implement commander fully.
I do like the idea of rebalancing cards for Alchemy, but it definitely should not affect historic. The power level and meta with its combos is completely different. Also the nerfs and buffs seem to be based on standard, and not actual alchemy meta, where 50% of people play the same broken alch-only rares.
They DO NOT CARE. There are enough morons with money to keep the cash flowing indefinitely, so they do not need to change the crooked rigged corrupt way they do business. I do not spend a cent on anything Hasbro. That is the only real method of voicing my displeasure.
I want to buy the new historic anthology but I will not *** long as there is no historic or historic brawl without alchemy.
It honestly makes no sense, Wizards is lose-losing from situations like these.
They create these new formats without even fixing their old/current ones, expecting players to just hop on to the new formats and forget about staples like real legacy formats. It's just sad People just can't understand that new *isn't* always better.
I mean who tf even plays Baldur's Gate?? 3's *still* not in 1.0
Wizards crooks just being crooks. Stop forcing Alchemy on us!!!
And stop ripping off our vault rewards too!
I will not play Arena until Alchemy leaves the format. All I see now is Yugioh cards sprinkled with a little bit of historic wincons. This format made me spend money after all but now I can't be bothered to play a single game. You nerfed t3feri because it was broken in standard yet you need a t3 answer to all that perpetual ******** that's coming right from t2 on and cannot be stopped.
Remove Alchemy from Historic or you will experience a mass exodus of Tier1 Mythic players who also have a lot of influence in the MTG community like me.
Also I'm cancelling my invitation to Arena Open and all qualification tournaments like I wrote in our corresponding emails
Agreed. I am not going to type too much more because I would go on forever, ranting (and I don't even play this format or much of Arena at all, .....CURRENTLY.....). Just know this is as CRITICAL to me as a player as it possibly could be. Understand this. I've been a mtg fan/customer since I was a child in 1994 (but I'm not some anti-digital anti-arena anti-esports boomer).
Please stop destroying the game that WE THE LONGTIME, LOYAL-AS-ALL-**** enthusiasts have "grown" for you. This game wouldn't exist if it weren't for us. Stop catering to popular fads. Money ISN'T everything, especially when the point it to curate a fun, competitive game/sport. These last few years almost seem like an exit-scam to me. It's heartbreaking.
Agreed, Alchemy doesn't seem to rotate so what's the point of screwing up Historic? I can't wait until Explorer catches up to Pioneer and then you can mess up Historic...
They need to just delete Alchemy period. Them forcing baldur's gate into it was amazingly insulting...you get code cards a month before hand and then you can't use them because its tied the LITERALLY WORST IDEA wotc has ever had.
This was the most extreme mistake ever made on MTG Arena. I don't like alchemy, but if there are people who do, good for them. But killing historic by adding alchemy to it is completely unexplicable. We want an eternal format that is reflected in paper magic, you've added explore but what about the cards we crafted from historic that aren't in it? I, personally, want to play commander as similar as possible to what we have in paper. The alchemy cards break that. The nerfs without refunds are COMPLETELY UNNACCEPTABLE. This is by far the most disgusting move made by the MTGA team and is making me considering drop the game altogether and stick to paper.
I agree whole heartedly. As a Magic player since 4th edition, I truly understand that the game has to evolve. Evolution is good considering new technology, game play ( I hated ante, but loved mana burn), etc. So when Alchemy came out, I saw this as an online evolution due to the mechanics that can be introduced which would be very difficult in paper. However, I always saw Historic as an option similar to Modern, Pioneer, etc. The two should not meld into one. If Historic is going to be akin to Alch3,y, then we need an eternal format that mimics paper.
i logged in an started crying,... a full alchemy set tha timediatly took over historic fully........ sadge. Very Sadge
Beware new people this game is rigged to the hilt.Mtgo is your best bet but it's expensive.Apparently with this free app they can get away with anything and play stupid.
Chris C o c k s (they keep editing his stupid name) is the guy who ripped off the Gygax family.I looked it up ,real shady **** screwing over the person made the flagship game they made bank on.
Hasbro is corrupt as **** and now WoTC is as well.
Maybe a little anarchy would be good.
