I got that too, yesterday. Then I saw the confirmation of many player's fear about only getting 5 random precons. I'm on strike now :)
Don't see a point in further developing an account that got shafted by RNG.

I wouldn't worry. At first I got five mono colored precons. Yesterday I got my first dual color so that makes six so far.
Edit: Sorry, wrong. Yesterday was my second dual precon. I forgot about the Orz I got the other day. I'm up to 7 precon decks.

Nah, it's official. Their current plan is to hand out 5 out of 10 dual colored precons. I've posted quite some feedback on the "mothership" ;)

If you're not invested yet, I strongly advise to make multiple accounts.

edit, self-quote:

friday: Orzhov, consistent with forum expectations to get the 5 non-GRN guilds, looking forward to Merfolk
saturday: Izzet, theory disproven, doubts arose in the forums whether there was a typo in the patch notes or we get Russian Roulette, still hoping for Merfolk either way
sunday: Gruul, Merfolk impossible in the "only 5"-scenario
monday: Azorius, "only 5" confirmed, GG my friends..

That would leave Golgari for today, but I don't think I'll log into that broken account ;)

See my edit also.
I just fired up the game to check. I have 7 precon decks so far.

You can ignore the 5 mono ones.

Let me make an educated guess that your second deck after Orzhov was either Izzet, Simic or Gruul and that you'll get the 5th color next.

So, unless you spent money already or are happy with what you got, my advice still applies.

The mono white is like 8 for 10 with a little tweaking. For only spending money on the welcome pack I'm pretty happy so far. I don't play that much at all really so that's why it's a 8 for 10. Izzet was my second dual precon, yes.

I may be over-reacting, but I've had about enough from this **** company massacring a game I would love to play.

If you read my above edit, you see how I was happy first to get my current favorite Merfolk back and slowly realized from day to day that that wouldn't happen. Now I'm just too mad at WotC to even play. A lot of people are angry about missing out single rares from precons they didn't get, but I think, that is quite redeemable with wildcards. If I want to play Merfolk though, I'd have to buy RIX packs starting from scratch instead of having a full base deck.

I know what you mean. Because of the rotation there's no way to get my Kitties back and I really loved that deck. I've just decided to move on. I wasn't happy after the last wipe either but eventually I got myself up to a decent collection and some nice, mostly competitive decks (enough to keep me happy) purely f2p, so I'm holding out that I will get the same outcome this time. I'm even spending a little money to hurry that along.
What I'm still not happy about everyone knows. Not on console, no friends list, no voice chat, no multiplayer modes, etc.

I've always wondered how this should work on consoles. Awkward controls aside, how do you read the text from several meters away? I imagine tablets to be the most comfortable solution.

edit, reddit quote:
tl;dr, you get one of four decks at random, and from there you can tell which ones you'll get next.

Simic -> Boros -> Rakdos -> Selesnya -> Dimir

Rakdos -> Selesnya -> Orzhov -> Simic -> Izzet

Orzhov -> Izzet -> Gruul -> Azorius -> Golgari

Gruul -> Golgari -> Dimir -> Azorius -> Boros

That looks about right, I got rakdos first, then selesnya and orzhov. Don't think I have the simic one yet or izzet.

I do think you are overreacting a bit. You knew there would be a wipe. And it's not shocking that the precons they are pushing are from the new set. Yes, it will be hard for you to easily rebuild the top-end of the Merfolk deck from scratch, but about 70% of that is common and uncommons and you can pump that out right quick with a competent grinding deck. Once you are at a point where you can turn the corner on it, you can just play it as it continues to develop. I think Merfolk might actually be better pretty well positioned right now with its ability to go wide while still interfering in your opponents' plans.

The solution I guess is the wildcard route - which for any mythic / rares you need will take some time. I started with the gruul deck so guess as we only get 5 will miss out on Izzet, one of my favourite guilds. However I have an Izzet build (and with the addition of black a grixis one too). It’s true I will miss out on the rares in the Izzet deck, but I could always use some rares if they would fit the build I have. Also in latest matches I see players using e.g. what looks like the staring golgari deck (tokens and damage via death). I have a golgari build that is quite different (big creatiure / removal type) where only a few cards in the earned golgari deck fit. The only real colour on the pie I don’t really use is white. The Izzet and Golgari / Grixis cover off 4 main colours. Packs and ICR’s I look to see if it can improve those first. SF

You know, I'm not sure. Never got to play Duels on console but have a decent size hdmi tv. I sat fairly close for DOTP but that's due to playing a lot of ffa. Actually considering how small the cards got for ffa in DOTP I would probably be used to Arena's card size.
Console controller was fine for all the games. Yes this one has a few more gears but I'm sure it would work out fine. 2015 sucked when it went to pc but not to Playstation. I used a controller through my pc but it was a bit rough. All the commands were laid out like x box instead of Playstation so I would make unintentional plays some times.
Still hoping for someday. I came away from Draft yesterday with a strain in my neck from playing Arena on my pc.

I play Magic Arena with a controller through Xpadder. You really only need to emulate the mouse controls, the triggers, and the Cntrl button.

Welcome aboard, here's your paddle :)

That's why there are 20 pages of hate already within 24 hours. Not for Dimir of course.. though the Dimir card Disinformation Campaign is a good representation of WotC's behavior ;)

If you really want that precon, you're best of making a few fresh accounts and continue on one that gets the right precon tomorrow - sacrificing what you gained so far. Bitter sweet irony given there was free Singleton all weekend long when nobody could know this might happen.

I actually may have another chance. When the servers went down yesterday I had just finished a game. My screen went black for about 15 seconds and when the game came back up I was wiped. No wildcards, gold or gems. When the servers came back up it started me out with my gold and stuff back but at the tutorial. I exited out of the tutorial and got a second copy of each of the mono decks. I had to do a couple of quests to open draft and sealed back up. First quest today when I get home from work will unlock a dual color deck. I still have my Orzhov and Izzet... maybe this time I'll be on a different track and get the Dimir thread.
This whole downtime was really weird.
