his thread is for discussion of this week's The Week That Was, which goes live Friday morning on magicthegathering.com.
This, in a nutshell, is what I think is the worst problem with the game today: the players. More specifically, the expectations that nearly 20 years of the game's history has set up in the players about what kind of decks are good decks, and what colours are good colours. When you have to twist a so-called Spike's arm that hard to get him to play the best deck, just because the best deck is white weenie...

Spikes: always doing what it takes to win, and playing the best deck! Unless it's white. (Or green.) 'Cause that's icky.
