I'm still running Naya Blitz, and 4-0d with it tonight at MNM!  I also got a chance to do a full block draft online today for the release events.  I punted HARD match 2 game 1, but still enjoyed the deck I ended up with, and some of the plays that got recorded.  Anyway, back to standard constructed:  This weekend is states, and I'm thinking I'm going to go.  This Naya Blitz list is good, but I'm not convinced it's the best deck in the format....

So, earlier this evening I got a chance to draft the full block at my local store, and I set aside my deck afterwards so I could share it with you.  I ended up first picking a Ruric Thar, the Unbowed and I was pretty happy about that.  I was willing to go into a third color if necessary, but thankfully I picked up a good amount of on color playables in pack one, and got a pretty amazing signal pack two getting passed a Rubblehulk, Ghor-Clan Rampager, and Skarrg Guildmage.  I...

So, Lorywn drafts are online right now and Jake and I recorded one in our last podcast. If you don't know much of the history of Lorywn, it was the first set to feature planeswalkers, and it was heavily tribal based. When Lorwyn first came out in paper Magic, I was just getting into competitive Magic. I took a blue/green deck to states, and ended up going 6-2. The deck was a counterspell deck that ramped with mana dorks, and finished with manlands like Faerie Conclave and Treetop Village...

Hey duders, I drafted triple Dragon's Maze this evening, an excellent prelude to a weekend of Dragon's Maze release events. I kept my draft deck intact so I could write it on here. Before I begin, let me explain the picture above. I'm from Rochester, Minnesota and we made national news yesterday when we got 13 inches of snow! Two days earlier, it was 76 degrees! As you can see in the picture, the trees that were all ready for spring got super messed up from getting tons of...

Hey, back again! I heard from a few people about the blog already, and I really appreciate it. The card in this blog is something I came up with, and I think I'm going to post another card idea for every blog. It would be cool if we could come up with some mechanics and card ideas as a community, so click contact and write me if you've got more ideas. Dark Companion is something of a homage to Dark Confidant in that it has dark in its name, costs two mana, and is a 2/1, as well as...

Hey guys, Alex here trying out a blog on the website so I can write and let you know a little bit about myself, and also periodically update you guys with my plans. Feedback would be really nice if you would like for me to start recording or getting involved with other Magic formats. I've been playing Magic since fourth edition or so. I was a longtime kitchen table Magic player, much like many others, but really didn't find tons of opportunities to play with friends, so there were a lot of long...
