This thread is for discussion of this week's The Week That Was, which goes live Friday morning on magicthegathering.com.

I wonder if the Regionals announcement means that North Carolina won't get a Regionals anymore, the same way they took away our big prerelease.  We have lots of Magic players (more than, for example, the nearby states of Virginia and Georgia, which do get large events), but no single city that is quite as big, so maybe it's easier to ignore us.
Thanks to everyone who helped with the design of the plane of Golamo in the Great Designer Search 2!

These are the decks I have assembled at the moment:

Looking @ Sam Black's Steel Artifact decklist, I was struck by how many parts were the same for 2 other decks, Kuldotha Red & monowhite Quest.  So, I promptly threw this list together; if you want to use it, go ahead, with my blessing, I just ask that you email me that you'd like to use it, & I'd like to be kept appraised of its performance (I don't have access to MODO, that's why I'm farming this out).  My email address is travis.froggatt@gmail.com

[deck=Quest for Mo' Money]
3 Contested War Zone
4 Arid Mesa
7 Plains
5 Mountain

4 Memnite
4 Ornithopter
4 Signal Pest
4 Glint Hawk
4 Steel Overseer
2 Phyrexian Revoker

4 Tempered Steel
4 Mox Opal
4 Kuldotha Rebirth
4 Quest for the Holy Relic
2 Argentum Armor
1 Chimeric Mass


NOTE: An active turn-one Quest is possible with this build.  Imagine this opening hand:
Plains, Quest, Ornithopter, Memnite, Mox Opal, Kuldotha Rebirth, any other non-Equipment card in the deck.

Drop the Plains, cast Quest.  Cast both 0-cost creatures, remembering to put a counter on the Quest for each of them.  Cast Mox Opal.  Tap the Opal for red, cast Kuldotha Rebirth, sac'ing the Opal, get 3 red 1/1 Goblin tokens (don't forget those counters!).

Now, either pass the turn, threatening to pop the Quest during your oppo's end step, or pop it immediately, betraying your true impatient Red nature!  That's right, the white is all an act!  A front!  This is really a RED deck, through & through!  Bwa-hahahahahahahahhaaaaa!!!!!!

Ahem.

Enjoy!

On further reflection, I'd like to move the 2 Revoker to a theoretical sideboard (I don't normally play with sideboards, as I don't know how), in favor of bashing people over the head for a lot, most likely the win.
