I hope everybody had a nice Christmas and New Year. I didn't post much the last couple weeks because I was busy hanging with the family and being sick. I put up my first Cube video today, and I hope you got the opportunity to see Randy's that he posted a few days ago. I've started a new video series with Magic card giveaways, so tune into those for a chance to get free Magic cards. I also posted a Hearthstone video, so if you haven't gotten the chance to see Blizzard's new digital card game...

Hey y'all. I made a couple new decks for some video series I'd like to start up. I've been running Seemsgoodmagic for a couple years now and haven't given Modern or Legacy exposure at all. I made a monoblack zombie Legacy deck, and a monored shaman Modern deck (maybe you're seeing a theme here). I've decided to not dive immediately into dailies because both decks are not considered tier 1, and also because I have limited knowledge about the main archetypes I will have to face, and the...

What's up everybody?  I built my Boros Aggro standard deck online and have met with very positive results so far.  I've done three 5-3-2-2 events since dailies are still down, and have won two and lost one in round one.  The round one loss was to Mono-Black Devotion, which recently won the Grand Prix in Albuquerque.  I still like that match-up and think that the deck definitely has the tools to defeat it.  The thing is, decks that run shocklands and maindeck...

Hey all, in the last couple episodes of the Mortarpod we featured a new segment we call "Weird Harvest".  Weird Harvest is a segment where we evaluate cards with goofy, strange names, and/or goofy, strange pictures.  Card design will still be critiqued as well, but it comes secondary to the name and picture.  We're on Itunes, so please subscribe to the Mortarpod and help us out.  I'm working with artists for the board/card game now and it will still...

Hey everybody, how's Theros limited going for you? I've met with pretty inconsistent results. If you've been watching, you see that I haven't won in a youtube video yet. I have won a couple streams with UG midrange (the deck had a ton of Horizon Chimeras and Prophet of Cheat...er Kruphix) and also monoblack quad Gray Merchant + Whip of Erebos deck. I'm not sure why I've been inconsistent, but commenters have said even some of the pros seem to be having spotty success...

Hey, if you guys didn't know already I'm working on a fully cooperative card game that draws elements of Magic the Gathering, Dungeons and Dragons, and other tactical combat games. I've started to do work on the card templates themselves and pictured above is a prototype version. If you notice the three dots on the right side of the picture frame they represent the Action Point cost, Attack, and Energy of units within the game. Action Points are like mana in Magic. They are how you deploy...

If you watched the last Mortarpod, you saw that Jake and I are ready to go back to FNMs and experience the beginning of a new standard. I'll be starting off playing RDW, and though I did play yesterday at FNM, I played a sub-optimal build because I was missing some cards.  I went 1-2 drop.  Here's the list I plan to run: 

Creatures: x26
4x Firedrinker Satyr
4x Rakdos Cackler
4x Burning-Tree Emissary
4x Firefist Striker
4x...

Hey all! Just finished up my local store's Theros prerelease. I went 1-3 :( Poor me, right? Well, I tried something new this time and recorded some stuff with my phone while there. You can watch that here.  The video runs through my decklist.  When I record Mortarpod #43 this evening I'll go into more detail about the specific match-ups and what I've learned already.  I also want you to take a look at the art...

Hey all! I've slowed down a bit on the M14 drafts as you've probably noticed. It's only because Theros is right around the corner and I am just waiting to dive right into it. I want to give a shout-out to Morgan Wentworth. She took second at the Mead Hall Game & Comics From the Vault 20 Modern Tournament. You can watch her finals match here .  Morgan has a history with us at SGM and I suggest you check...
