This thread is for discussion of this week's Serious Fun, which goes live Tuesday morning on magicthegathering.com.
Love the story. And I just want to say, I had built a deck like that Child of Alara deck. I thought I was being original when I started putting it together. I like a lot of his card choices and might have to see where I can fit some of them in.
Might I make a suggestion that might get to Josh, Dark Tutelage is a great card paired with the amount of lands you have and if you were playing a Sensei's Divining Top drawing 2 cards just about every turn for free is nice. Also Realms Uncharted seems really good.
I love long games like this too ... unfortunately most of my playgroup really do not.
