Just logged in, skipped the tutorial (from settings), input the code PlayRavnica (case sensitive) and is now ready for my first match

I take no credit for any of this, as I found it all on reddit
Anyways, start your decks gentlemen

Yeah, I was surprised to see it working when I just wanted do DL it. Don't know who messed up with time zones this time ;)

Facing a mix of pre-cons and GRN bombs :)

Magic's a simple game, 2 people take turns playing cards and in the end Divinevert wins 2-0...

That's so that everyone can have his favorite name. Blizzard introduced that long ago.

I pulled a teferi from my packs, but was too focused on building my boros deck to see if the freebie PWs were in my collection.

You have to input the code you've got in email! There's a unique code that gives you single copies of Ral, Teferi and Vraska.

You need to check about halfway down the email. I ended up following the link the the State of the Beta at first looking for a code.

I had my 5 wins yesterday in singleton tournement with just standart welcome cards. Gruul rules. I conceded to a rat colony deck when I realized what was going on, it was a hasty retreat with no reason. I won when I faced second rat colony deck. Using rat colony in singleton tournement is a little bit cheating IMHO.

Rat Colony is really weak in Singleton. It was better in Pauper.

It wasn't all that bad the last time around. That may just be me playing Golgari instead of UW Control, though.

It's a decent strategy is you're F2P. But a decent singleton deck with about redundancy will massacre it.

I'm literally burning through pauper. My mono-red goblins & dragons is 9-0 ATM, so being free and netting me a free rare is such a sweet deal.
The best part of pauper is that every game is different enough to keep it fun.

Edit: Wow, I got an assassin's trophy and an Aurelia as icrs from singleton (4-0,4-0,4-0,0-2 wtf?, 4-1,4-1).

I don't know about Rats on the play. I've played some 10+ games and been on the play exactly once. However I'm sure they stink in comparison to Pauper. The powerlevel of Singleton is entirely different. You just fold to a rare like Leonin Warleader for example.

I don't think I've lost to rats yet, but they've been mostly close games.
90% of my losses are to 2 cards: leonin warleaders and ghalta.

Something's weird with ICRs, I'm getting mostly good cards. I mean it could just be the cardpool has less chaff and bad rares without kaladesh and amonkhet, or there may be some kind of favourable tampering with the RNG.

Or I may just be getting lucky...

Well change of heart (and again CGB’s channel a lot to do with it!). With the wipe and restart and assumption that you can finally build a collection that will remain, that and not wanting to miss out on the new Guild of Ravnica set I am back in. I think the starter decks, rewards and the welcome pack it’s an enabler to get a good start in Arena and build on it. Just have the one additional deck earned over the mono starter ones. Built a decent golgari list and will look to see for Izzet next so covering 4 of the colour pie. More conscious now of how I spend the limited wildcards but probably the Singleton wild card will go on Niv-Mizzet, Parun. SD

Welcome back SD! Hope everything's well!:-)
And I'd spend the mythic on the 5cmc 6/6 flying trample demon. It's a beast. Wish I spent mine on it instead of the nullhides :D
