Howdy!  For those of you who don't know, the PMP Post is a website that I ran for a while that died around the time of the release of Scars of Mirrodin.  There seems to be a recent push to revive the site, which is fine with me.  You can visit the site here if you would like to check it out.

I need to take applicants to write, as this is not a site for anyone to just put up what they want, so I'm gonna set up some guidelines.  First of all, any members of Team PMP (you know who you are) can submit articles to me without any restrictions.  I do, however, reserve the right to edit all articles.  Alternatively, if you are not a member of Team PMP you must submit your article to me beforehand for approval.

Lastly, I am looking to see if you can get regular writers to write on a weekly, or at least regular, basis.  To do this you will need to send me an application that includes some things about you.  This application is not structured, so you can submit it in whatever format you would like, but it would make sense to include the following things: What would your regular column be about?  Why do you want to write this column and why are you a good candidate to?  In addition, I would need to receive the first article from someone intending to write a regular column as a means of getting an overview of their writing.  If you plan on wiriting a weekly article telling me what day of the week you want to write it on would be great.  This way I can map out what the week will look like and figure out when to insert other articles.

All applications of any kind should be submitted via pm.  You can also pm me any questions or ask them here.

nice...
PM Will be sent, I'd love to finally get a chance to write and buff up my writing skills.

I'm willing to write on a one-off/special request basis (like you think there's a topic not being touched on enough you want gone over... and you know I know it). 

Seems like you'll have plenty of people so just make a note; I don't think you'll need me.

If you previously had a regular article I don't think you need to resubmit.  That means I already thought you were fine.

Eats, you should completely play my Grand Abolisher Caw from the magic-league trial xD  jk, GA hasn't been tested enough yet and magic-league barely counts as testing

Want to know how to keep a moron busy? Reread this sentence to find out!
is skite worth it in that list?  it seems like you don't really have any creatures worth protecting, and you only have 3 swords anyways, so no one sane is going to side in artifact hate.



Protecting GA and Hawks is too important not to play 'skite, as is stopping Twin (since Dismember is a joke to Dispel).  Anyways, I don't really want any help with the deck right now as that isn't what this thread is for

idn there alot of bad players out there that side in artifact hate the second they see swords lol.

also sexy list link, though still think i would run 3 swords some how.

Halo your list seems weak against valakut which will prob be a decent portion of the room a the 1k.
Started to write 2 articles a week on getting ready for GP Toronto were i will be talking about getting ready for sealed. The first one is up so go check it out on PMP post.

I actually, playtested the list a ton against Valakut and mostly decided that O-ring is still better than ItR, but other than that, my Valakut MU is actually fine.  I did FNM today as practiced (I split top 4 after going 3-0-1 losing only 1 game and none of the matches) and played Valakut twice.  Out of both matches, I lost only 2 games.  I also did a ton of testing after the tournament (and picked up my 3rd sword with store credit) and my Valakut MU should be fine.

I'm sure we'd all love some articles from Uncle AL again :D

If you're interested, I could have a fairly detailed U/G Tokens primer written to put there.
Current decks: Type II: B/R Vampires Extended: Modern: U/G Scapeshift 1.5: Ichorid, Elf Combo
I always liked the concept. Just to get you started, I've PM'ed you an article I wrote over the last couple of days. Maybe I'll get my act enough together to write more - who knows.

If you want, I can probably also find that article I wrote about power plays and the death of the Sligh ideal - it's already been posted on these forums, but if you want it you've got it.

Halo: I tested arbitor, but he didn't help vs bad decks, which are the only ones I care about. (In case you don't know me well, bad decks are RDW, vamps, and valakut. I'm not worried about control, mirror or steel, because I can normally out play them. But the bad decks require no skill at all, so its hard to "outplay" them) :P

eh, i suppose, but you could always side him out in those matchups.  Whatever you want to go with for the 75K is all up to you ;)

yeah, I don't know. I like winning g1s IMO
You can still win g1 with GA, I mean, at worst it is a guy that carries a sword that gets around removal upon equip.  Although Valakut probably doesn't care about a 2/2, so your choice to run it or not.  Also, like I said, I did a lot of testing with the card, but not enough, so it is your choice to play it or not.

I'll definitely write stuff again. In fact, count me in for a weekly column. Just tell me which day you'd like it to be done.

Whenever is easiester for you/whenever other people aren't writing.  I'll let you know when I get a more defined list.

I'm always interested, ship it over!

To anyone who said they had something if I was interested, just let me see what you have.  The more articles the better, as I doubt we will have a surplus.  Plus, I always reserve editting rights before posting something.

Alright, Monday/Tuesday will probably be best since I'll be doing tourney reports fairly often.

well, nothing much seems to be happening now...

when do I get to watch hot deck-on-deck action?



Yea... just a bunch of commentary.
Scratch that... starting now.
bump.

anyways, weevil, how would you like an article on mono green midrange, since a list of it did pretty well at SCG


That would be great.  I'm on vacation now, so I'm not gonna check my comp often, but I will still check my inbox every day or so.  Once I get back I should have a surplus of articles that will allow us to start the site.

Not sure, haven't talked to him since the beginning of summer.  He posts here more often than I do though, although on a new account.  I know he mostly plays on MTGO now.

I'm back from vacation, so I'm willing to start this up.  PMP has pretty much gone completely inactive, but I'll be happy to get the post up and running.  I'll give a week for more article submissions and then we go online again!

I only stopped going to the PMP boards because it seemed like everybody had bailed...are we gonna try a revival? I got some super secret rech I wanna test some more :P

To me, there is no such thing as an evil personality trait or spiritual condition. There is only sin, concrete and deliberate action that is simply wrong. It is what happens when one goes against one's nature. It germinates in the shadow of risks untaken. It ripens in power exorcised. Beings like us can take risks no one else can, and exorcise power no one else has. We have the greatest capacity for sin, through action, or inaction.

Meh, not sure whether this is entirely accurate, at least for concept decks. Sometimes an unrefined idea cannot beat the top dogs at first, but with a few suggestions and heavy playtesting, they might get there. Islands' diamond in the rough lists are a good rebuttal to your statement.

Aaaaaaaaaaaand we're online pmppost.wordpress.com/ AlienFinger's article on card advantage is up and hopefully we can keep this going.  That said, this is the only article I have as of now, so people who pm'ed me about writing articles hopefully can start getting them to me.  If there isn't an actual interest, then I'll let this die for good.  Perhaps someone can write about the new innistrad stuff?
