Episode 1: Blasphemy of Mediocrity
Cards, ever since I saw that card on the Innistrad card image gallery, I was sold. I just knew there could be something good there, somewhere. But before I met her in her final incarnation, there was a long way before me. This is the story of how I met your Gutter. Read the rest of this entry
Time to finish up this Dark Ascension set review with the red, green, multicolor, artifact and land cards. Vamos! Read the rest of this entry
One set. One-hundred-and-fifty-eight cards. Three words per card. You know the drill – let’s do this. Read the rest of this entry
So last week was a bunch of teasers (a weird comparison and a weird deckname, for starters) and a bunch of cards. Today I want to share the process of how I melted this ratpack of cards together into one (actually, two) neat sixty card package(s). Let’s not waste words any longer and dive straight in!
Last week I told you about a pending draft that took place the same night my article went up. The draft was a great deal of fun and I ended in second place after starting out 0-2 (1-2, 1-2). I initially was planning on mentioning the draft as the first part of my article, but I realized I would be better of using my draft as a means to falsify/verify the assumptions and hypotheses I discussed last week. Be prepared for a not-quite-ordinary draft/tournament report!
Last week I made a promise to revisit Intihuatana this week. Turns out that’s not entirely true. I will give you a deck, but it’ll have to wait until next week. You see, the moment this article goes up is around the time me and my friends will be drafting Innistrad. I love drafting; I love it so much that the last time we drafted, it was Rise of the Eldrazi! Yes, it’s sad, isn’t it? Still, every draft is such fun and a great way to revisit old Magic memories and make some new ones. We’ve opened two foil Akroma‘s during Time Spiral drafts (back-to-back), and last time we had a foil Emrakul and a Kozilek. To make a long story short: this week will be about draft: draft in general, Innistrad in particular, and how my group tends to draft. Read the rest of this entry
As if the title isn’t vague enough, how about this one:
what do crabs and cobra’s have in common with cats and clocks? Read the rest of this entry
Once upon a time there was a guy named Toshiro Umezawa. Being a legendary creature, I built a deck around him. (That’s basically all there is to it with legends.) Since I’m having a hard time coming up with new decks right now – it appears I’m in a Magic rut – I wanted to share today my Toshiro Umezawa deck, the one without Toshiro Umezawa. It’s called Tragedy Bound nowadays and still one of the most fun decks I have. Read the rest of this entry
The entries are in and a winner has been chosen for The Mimeoplasm’s zombie challenge. Before we get to the winner, I want to cover some ground on zombies in Commander and how to make them good.Whenever you build any Commander deck, you need to choose a path to take for victory. Just making a tribal deck isn’t going to make your deck a force to be rockened with. Before you even start putting the list for your deck together you should have a clear idea of how you want to knock other players out of the game.One of the cards I was really hoping to see decks built around was Rooftop Storm.
