So yeah, turns out weekly blogs were kind of boring to me. I'm still going to try to do these on a somewhat regular basis, but weekly just doesn't allow me time to come up with an idea for new decks or notice new interactions.
Anyway, new deck idea (only in concept stage) so we're going to have another process blog. The basic premise behind this deck is to utilize detain and token manipulation ([c]Cackling Counterpart[/c], [c]Parallel Lives[/c]) to lock your opponent out of doing anything other than casting spells. And I feel that [c]Archon of the Triumvirate[/c] is the best detain candidate, since it detains 2 permanents per attack. The only problem is its high mana cost, and then you have to wait a turn to attack. Or do you? I've already titled this "4-color" because I intend to include...

So this week, I have a deck that I think would be interesting to run. I don't yet own all of these cards (missing the Abrupt Decays, and I really don't feel like shelling out 16 bucks a piece for them), but that's okay because...well, we'll discuss that when we get to it.
[deck=Jund Guardians]3 Golgari Guildgate
3 Rakdos Guildgate
4 Transguild Promenade
3 Axebane Guardian
3 Gatecreeper Vine
3 Trestle Troll
3 Ogre Jailbreaker
3 Xathrid Gorgon
3 Hanweir Watchkeep
3 Lobber Crew
3 Essence Backlash
3 Auger Spree
3 Abrupt Decay
3 Golgari Charm[/deck]
No sideboard decided for it just yet, but I would want it to contain only multicolored spells.
If you haven't noticed, every creature is a defender, except the Gorgon and Hanweir's other face. The Gorgon is not only for...

Well, I don't have a deck idea already cooked up just yet, but I might as well let people see how I come up with deck ideas (usually). So, for this week's blog (for I will be trying to keep them weekly, but I can't promise it'll stay that way), I will think up a decklist.
How do I decide on what kind of deck to build? It actually depends a lot on what kind of mood I'm in. Am I in a themeing mood? Are there a few cards I just absolutely must build around? Did I find a new interaction I hadn't noticed before? As it turns out, right now I'm in a mood that is a mix between themeing and building around. In this case, the theme is +1/+1 counters and the build-arounds are [c]Corpsejack Menace[/c] and [c]Heartless Summoning[/c]. As for the format in which I'm building...I think I'd like to keep ...

So, minor intro here: I'm going to start trying to keep a somewhat steady blog, mostly to post deck ideas I have or card comboes I find interesting. I'd use the forums, but most of the people who frequent those are too competitive in nature and just don't understand why or how I find the certain interactions of the cards to be interesting. And usually try to rework the decklist to include every "meta staple" that's currently legal. While some of these decks may be good in a competitive setting, I create all my decks based around ideas that I find fun.
Of course, to really understand what I find fun, you have to know that I am a Timmy Johnny Vorthos. Which should tell you I like big creatures, comboes, and I admire cards for more than just their gameplay value (in this case, flavor; Vorthos...

Here's the deck I ran at a draft at the local Prerelease that took me to first place (in a rather fast but fun method). I had a hard time deciding what to cut to make it 40, so I ended up making it 45.
[deck]1x Cathars' Crusade
1x Archwing Dragon
1x Burn at the Stake
1x Cathedral Sanctifier
1x Angelic Wall
1x Devout Chaplain
1x Thraben Valiant
2x Seraph of Dawn
2x Spectral Gateguards
6x Voice of the Provinces
1x Kessig Malcontents
1x Mad Prophet
1x Riot Ringleader
1x Thatcher Revolt
1x Vigilante Justice
2x Kruin Striker
2x Scroll of Avacyn
1x Seraph Sanctuary
The lowest life total anybody got me to was 1 life. All my rounds were won in 2.
The main combo I went with was to play cheap creatures for blockers, get my Crusade out, and drop a Voice stacking the triggers so...
