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.
I will not play MTGA or spend another dollar on this client until the changes from Alchemy to the Historic format are undone.
i am requesting to delete my account unless alchemy is removed
No idea why WotC hates us. I'm not touching Historic, let alone Alchemy, until they stop showing contempt for the community by introducing non-draft sets that are 82% Mythic/Rare. Give me a reason. Give me literally ANY reason apart from greed why Ethereal Escort should be Mythic, rather than uncommon. I've been buying gems. No more. Never again. Hope the cash cow was worth it while it lasted.
Please, add pioneer or another eternal paper format.
Day 7 of not playing arena.
This is getting easy.
yall really messxed up this one. i for one am not pleased nor will i continue to play or spend any more $. you nerfed histoic cards that arent even related to standard alchemy. good job idiots. so stupid stupid stupid
Alchemy affecting historic and being an overall take for game economy is the reason why I will stop playing and paying on Arena and Physical Magic.
You want people to spend? Give them a good reason too. Magic is not the biggest nor the best card game anymore, you guys can't milk everyone in the community because "hur dur it is magic" get over yourself and adjust to the consumers. There are better, more engaging, more reward, and less wallet demanding games than magic.
Fix your stuff, or most people will simply stop playing (and making your hasbro overlords rich).
Since the Beta version of MTG Arena, Historic (From Wizards of the Coast) was talked about and promoted as an ETERNAL Magic format in MTG ARENA in which all Arena cards could be played.
It is a format I liked ... until the conversion with Alchemists ... Historic is now no longer an ETERNAL format, all Arena cards can no longer be played AS YOU PROMISED.
My finances do not allow me to spend a lot of money on a game, however, so far, within my possibilities, I have done so by focusing on an ETERNAL format.
As a Magic player since 1989 and an Arena player since Beta, I feel SCAMMED, it is not a ban or a nerf, it is a lot of wildcards I spent in an ETERNAL format (you can no longer play all the cards published in Arena) which is now no longer ETERNAL.
For this reason, I request that all the wild cards I invested in Historic be reimbursed to my account, logically deleting the crafted cards.
I will decide in which format I decide to use them, of course regardless of how Wizards promotes a format.
Waiting your response
this is garbage my mastery pass is wasting away, not that its worth anything to me if you don't fix this. i'd really like some kind of confirmation sooner than later if there is going to be an eternal format or not, i'll pay 5$ a month subscription to have access to non-alchemy polluted format if money is the deciding factor here
Agreed, why can't these be separated?
Day 6 of not playing arena
Absolutely agree, please WOTC don't jam alchemy into historic. Cards which are fine for historic but are nerfed in Alchemy will have a big detriment to peoples decks and collections. Luminarch Aspirant is a perfect example of this. I also loved that while historic was a digital format, all the cards translate into the real world (with the exception of historic jumpstart, but thats a whole other problem) and this further separates the format from why i, and many others, want to play it. There isnt a paper pioneer scene where i live, and MTGO is not a client i particularly enjoy, so Arena Historic is where i got to try out older decks with new cards, or build new decks when they finally had enough pieces to work.
PLEASE WOTC don't mess with historic like this, at the very least have a queue for Alchemy Historic and for regular HIstoric
As someone who casually plays eternal formats in paper, I find Alchemy to be incredibly confusing and needlessly complicates the game. Am I supposed to keep gatherer open on my phone and reference it mid-match while playing paper magic so that I can look up the paper version of a card so as not to misremember what the paper version of a card does relative to an ever-changing Alchemy version of the card? I'd have no objection to Alchemy being introduced if it were added as a separate format to Historic so that I could opt-in to the format and not lose the only format on MTGA that I regularly play and ejoy.
I'm quitting till we get separated historic. I have no faith any deck I buy will not be nerfed out of existence without any form of compensation.
Please separate Historic from Alchemy and it's inherent shenanigans. The negative impact on Historic has removed my desire to support Arena any further.
Historic needs the ability to play both the standard paper version or the alchemy version. Historic is suppose to be the digital card sets as a whole. Why limit historic players the ability to play cards they been enjoying for a while now? Digital cards are a fun addition to historic however altered paper alchemy cards makes it worse, dramatically effects the economy with entire meta decks needing retooled after wildcards were used to create it. This is Alienating a huge amount of mtga players. I hope you use our feedback to improve your business decision.
So probably been said but my take is. Due to last wave of digital nerf this summer i wont craft wild cards in alchemy. I will not be buying digital cards that are not paper. I play every format in paper with friends and at the lgs. I suggest moving all the digital cards in to alchemy historic and have regular historic that matches the real cards. Just like you did for standard. The summer digital batch definitely showed me because it was altered that this will happen to these new ones also. So,I will craft my digital wilfs only in standard and a real card. But a very bad taste when you waste time and wilds on cards digital only just subject to nerf pile. Two other things promo codes in packs please and bring a pioneer remastered for us give it some life on arena. Support your products
It's the only eternal format we have in Arena. Please, don't mess with it.

You wanna make some crappy new online only format? Sure go ahead. But leave the other formats alone. You are pushing your custumors off the platform and back to paper. You changing pre existing cards and forcing other formats to use those is unacceptable.
I told my friends i would never play arena unless they added commander.. Historic brawl is as close as im going to get since commander is basically wizards unwanted red headed step child. Now i dont even want to play because they have ruined the format and the game. Seems sticking to paper is probably for the best.
I came to leave this feedback and good that I found this so that I can compound into the feeling a lot of us has.
I'm fine with new things being tried out in, but it really doesn't make sense that you left Standard alone and Historic got impacted by Alchemy like this. I lost a bunch of decks (plus the will to create more) due to the nerfing of some cards. Then not even wildcards to compensate? if there would be a parallel Alchemy Historic I would understand. But as it is, it was a very hurtful move Wizards :(
