First blog post
This is just a quick intro sorta thing even though I've been here for a while but mostly lurking
I play standard and edh/commander. Started with Vampire Nocturnus . I loved the Vampire Nighthawk and bloodghast . I can still see the demoralizing face drop when I said mindsludge
And then Nocturnus rotated out. Red/Black Vamps just weren't the same. There wasn't the evilness, or just the raw indifference that I associate with vamps
And for the record, the vampires that most people think of, and their mythos, is just one story. Vampires could wander in daylight, could eat people food, passed as a human or looked like a zombie, were possessed by demons, by disease, etc. The Vampire we are most familiar with was popularized by Stoker, the mythos very Rician in it's modern form. Wikipedia has a pretty detailed article in regards to the mythology and folklore.
I could go into further detail but why bore you? Suffice it to say that glitter vampires(lol) are just as "real" as Lestat
So I took a break from Standard and started focusing more on EDH, now Commander. I play a smooth, stompy, stomp you more Mayael the Anima deck. A classic general for a deck that has been tuned to me over the few years I've played. You can play control against me. don't really care. Eventually, you will run out of counterspells, I will not run out of creatures
Now I have a werewolf deck. And no, I don't want to run Huntsmaster of the Fells . Let me rephrase that, I would love too, but I will not spend that much on one card. Trade is a possibility, but I've got other hobbies too.
My particular deck was built to have a low curve and not be dependent on the transforming. If my cards flip, awesome. If not, then they get buffed. Overrun works very nice. If I run into control, I just keep putting out the creatures. Some of the decks out there in my meta give me some issue, but I think as I get in the hang of playing again, those decks will barely register.
I'm a budget Timmy player. My decks aren't built for total domination. They aren't super expensive. My decks will probably never be in the top eight. but I will have fun. More fun than those players that play only to win and I beat their very expensive decks
