This thread is for discussion of this week's Top Decks article, which goes live Thursday morning on magicthegathering.com.
Broken URL at the beginning of the article:

"last three Pro Tour Qualifiers" is a link to "http://staging.wizards.com/magic/magazine/events.aspx?x=mtg/daily/eventcoverage/nagoya11ptq/welcome" and should be "http://www.wizards.com/magic/magazine/events.aspx?x=mtg/daily/eventcoverage/nagoya11ptq/welcome"

Thanks for the round-up Mike.

I know 'old' extended had problems, but 'new' extended feels dully reminscent of last year's standard with added Jace. Sure, you've got scapeshift. but after that you've got... standard?

Also, the idea that my lorwyn cards will be no longer playable in any constructed format other than legacy in less than a year seems insane. We're accelerating towards cards being more and more disposable.
Which = more packs sold, which = more cash. Yay WotC!!

That's a little off-topic, but whatever. This article was pretty interesting, though I honestly still don't get the 'gutter ball' thing.

Guttural = Gutter Ball.

No, it's not a very good pun.

Thanks to everyone who helped with the design of the plane of Golamo in the Great Designer Search 2!
