This thread is for discussion of this week's Serious Fun, which goes live Tuesday morning on magicthegathering.com.

Count the number of commons in those decks.
I saw lots of shinyness and got excited
no gauntlet of might though
Where is Fumiko the Lowblood in the red deck?  Seems mandatory with Kazuul.
Thanks to everyone who helped with the design of the plane of Golamo in the Great Designer Search 2!

Questing Phelddagrif Slivers Dragon Arch Fun I'm probably forgetting a few...
The Wrexial deck is just better thought out IMO. Mono R works fine, but I would drop some fatties and put in more creature steal like Threaten and Mark of Treachery, more target redirection like Shunt and stuff like Sowing Salt  to really punish those using entirely non basics....
I had been looking forward to attending the pre-release with you and the rest of the gang from DW.  However, the forecast was so grim I decided prudence was the better decision. 

I want to hear the story of you driving home because I know the roads were brutal by the time you left the venue.  I know I wouldn't have been able to drive on those roads in my Mustang.  I can't believe we are supposed to get another 10"-20" today.

Because of its singleton nature, EDH decks do tend to pack a lot of powerful spells, many of them rare/mythic.

Quoted for truth, those two are hilarious together.  They're especially heinous with a good mana denial package, but that's generally considered poor form in EDH.
What exactly was the point of that article besides "I had just as much fun at the prerelease as everyone else"?

To make people who didn't go want to go to the next one. This is a website run by a company to promote a product they sell. (And they don't have to make apologies for that, I'm just sayin').
I don't know many people that go to prereleases to play EDH though. Usually they go to, I dunno, play sealed/draft with the new set, and pick up promos.

Is that not enough?

i played edh at pre release to get the brain juices flowing if you know what im saying :D

The biggest Vorthos Ever I'd rather have an awesome mechanic than the most flavor any day. Constantly coming up with cards all the time. So if you see a card you like tell me. Constantly trying to get into card of the week if you see a card you like please nominate.

good call.  I don't know how bad Adam had it, but my Mustang spun out as soon as I got off the campus, and the rest of the drive home was basically terrifying.
This is the happy swamp. Love it. I am red/blue, I think logically and act impulsively.
