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 have ben playing MTG since 1991. As a longtime player I do not like the direction wizards is going by modifying already existing cards. Please leave historic as it's own format and do not modify the cards in it. Historic is seen as MTGA's Modern/Legacy format.
Standard is a format I have no longer interest in, Historic was a good compromise to keep playing the card/deck I liked.
I'm not against MTG Arena only virtual card, I think it's a cool addition to let us have new interactions difficult or impossible in paper magic.
Nor I'm against the new Alchemy format has it was supposed to target the Standard format only.
But Historic should not be affected by this last one! I'll have never spend money on Arena in this condition.
At least I've been able to get a refund on my last gems purchase,
and I'm not planning on playing Arena again for has long has Historic will be ruined.
After almost 2 years of playing, I have definitely uninstalled Arena. Congratulations for alchemy and for the clarifications given to the community, excellent work Wizards, as usual!
That's two weeks.
Half a month.
We still haven't received any feedback regarding the Historic changes made and the community concerns after two weeks of voicing our opinions. This behavior is more insulting than the change itself. What is the point of posting here if we never get answers? At least tell us to pound sand and that we have no plans for Pioneer. Because there has been no communication from WOTC, I've halted all cash payments to Arena and I will continue urging other players to do the same.
Nearly 2 weeks, and no rolling back the badness.
Just want to chime in again and say how disappointing it is that WoTC haven't even acknowledged the pretty extreme consensus that alchemy can stay but we need an eternal format so our collections aren't ruined if we don't want to play alchemy
It's payday today.
Guess who isn't getting any of it?
whoever came up with the idea to pollute historic with alchemy is a cringe loser and should be fired, no amount of anything introduced in any set ever will ever fix this or persuade me to give you money ever again until this is rolled back. This was my favorite game, i would have easily dumped 500-1000$ a year into this game if i was confident my cards would stay the way they are printed and i'm sure that goes for allot of people. There was zero chance i was ever going to dump cash into prohibitively expensive irl cards just so they can sit on a shelf and get played with once a year, this was the only thing that worked for me I could afford to build decks that i liked and play whenever i want without having to organize anything but now that's ruined, even if you roll it back how can i trust it will stay that way, its worthless to me otherwise and i've already been burned. Nobody who's actually played magic their whole life wants this garbage, how could you possibly think that or do this to your customers. Make alchemy its own separate thing that has no effect on vanilla magic, it's just obvious. The mastery pass i wasted money on is depleting because i uninstalled because your garbage decision to ruin everything, there was literally no day i didn't grind out as much as i could, i still have withdrawals that do nothing but translate into hate for your betrayal, a hate i have no time for, i'll enjoy better games and give more deserving people my money and . If cards are op then playtest them better or ban them and give us double the wildcards as a show of good faith considering how many other cards we might have crafted to compliment their utility in our decks, and leave online only mechanics in their own format, i'm down to play that format and maybe grow to like it and put money into it but not at the cost of vanilla magic, this game is nothing to me if it doesn't remedy this clear mistake.

Im more frustrated that I cant play it with friends anymore. Why did you add historic brawl to the game then never add the button to play a friend with it. Ive used friendly brawl without issue to get around but it should just be a different button.
Day 10 of not playing arena.
Ten days of mounting hatred for WotC.
Give us Historic back and keep Alchemy in its own queue. You literally implemented it in the most anti-consumer way possible by not giving us wildcards when you nerf our cards. Until it's rolled back I'm done spending time or money on MTGA.
Arena Historic (Bo1) with Achemy/rebalanced cards
Traditional Historic (Bo3) without Alchemy/rebalanced cards.
Same for Brawl.
Man i am at the point that i feel like quitting, it makes no sense to lvl the game out takes the fun away.
New yu gi oh app is coming out soon might give it a try unless they make historic possible again.
Day 9 of not playing Arena.
I've been playing chess instead.
It's an eternal game.
Myself I'm a standard player that barely touches historic so this doesn't affect me, but the idea per se is just f* ridiculous.
Alchemy is not bad. Messing it up with an eternal format like historic is.
People are here to play Magic: The Gathering, they want the real experience, with real cards and real bans. No delusional and digital only cards that don't exist in real life messing with the original content.
Make alchemy a separate mode for gods sake. Standard, Historic, and then Alchemy standard/historic and everyone is happy. Profit.
I'm not even touching the points of needing to spend much more money to open alchemy-only packs to be competitive or not refunding wildcards. People are here for MAGIC, if we wanted this bul* we would be playing hearthstone or other crapy game.
Day 8 of not playing Arena.
Not even gonna look at the new kamigawa set.
It's not that I don't want to, it's the principle of the matter.
WotC has screwed me out of my cards.
The only other way I can get back at them is by ensuring they don't get my money anymore.
