Seems Good Magic Blog

You might be wondering why I haven't been as consistent with blog posts.  I'm in the process of completely revamping my Ebay store due to some policy changes.  This is taking up an enormous amount of my time (and sanity), so bear with me until I get through the bulk of it.  Ideally this won't take much longer than a month.  In the meantime, I hope you've gotten a chance to check out Tristan's standard Reanimator videos.  Tristan joined us in...

Been awhile since my last blog! I apologize. I've still been drafting like crazy, but have admittedly been missing out on a lot of paper Magic. I can assure you it's very difficult to play both equally. I recently recorded a draft video with the new beta client. It wasn't by choice because I still have some reservations about the current state of the beta. However, the old client was down, and they were offering incentives in the form of drafts that didn't require the two...

I got a chance to stream some Commander with friends on twitch yesterday. Everybody who stopped out, thanks. I had a good time doing it, and I know that you ordinarily watch me draft, but I'm about ready to expand to recording more of other formats. Like most people, I wish I had an infinite amount of time. I literally just need to sleep too much to be able to post the quantity of content I want to. Brian was kind enough to give me some input on what he would like to see from my...

I slight changed the build for the thieves' draft tonight.  If you're not familiar with how a thieves' draft payout works, we do normal swiss rounds of standard constructed, and instead of paying out in unopened boosters, all boosters are opened and the player who did the best in swiss gets first choice pick and this continues until everybody picks and then the cycle is repeated.  If you haven't seen the list yet:

Creatures: 35

Hey folks :) I got down to my store tonight and to my dismay, only six people showed up to the draft! Six person drafts are the kind that I never get to show you in draft videos, and for good reason. They're not super enjoyable. You do end up wheeling everything all the time, but it just doesn't feel as authentic. Regardless, I'll show you the list I ended up playing tonight. I went 2-1:

One of the joys of being a Magic player is the excitement of going to big tourneys! They're expensive, and time consuming, but the chance of winning is more important than either of these things. I ended up going 6-2, and being 19th place out of 165. I'll run through the final list I ended up taking and why I made some of the last second changes that I did. Here's the final list:

Hey all, I got a chance to do an eight man draft this evening at my local store Hobby Goblins. Feel free to visit the store's website at www.hobbygoblins.com . I went pretty deep tonight on the draft deck, but I had a good time and ended up going 2-1, and getting two packs:
