So Sunday will be the day in the house.. A hush has already fallen in anticipation of the big game. Young Pedanto #1 and has checked the date 3 times and suggested we could play Magic on Sunday. He received confirmation that the decks where ready and the table space booked (No real need to book a table.) It's our table. We can move stuff if it's full.
A new stand has been made to hold the official scoreboard or tablet. (is it a score tablet now??) I think I'll stick with scoreboard.
Chips are ordered and softdrink is chilling. We are doing this oldschool.. Lemonaid and salt&vinegar for those under 15 and coke and plain chips for those over.. over.. well it's no-ones business but mine what we might be over.
Score keeper has been polished and new images added to...

So, I decided to build ten Commander decks. Just for fun. All using the Maze Runners as the commanders. But as everybody knows, the obvous inclusions in the Varolz deck would be [c]Death's Shadow[/c], [c]Phyrexian Dreadnought[/c], and other ridiculously large low-cost creatures...so to make it more challenging, I limited my cardpool to only nonland cards from the original Ravnica block and Return to Ravnica block. As such, all of these decklists are arbitrarily pieced together based on my own whims and what I considered to be flavorful inclusions for each guild. I should note that I broke my limitation for one deck, but I'll get to that when I get to it.
[sblock=Lavinia's Deck][deck]1 Aerial Maneuver
1 Aethermage's Touch
1 Archon of the Triumvirate
1 Ascended Lawmage
1 Azorius Arrester...

Well just a quick update on the score keeper app. Thank you to everyone who emailed me their feedback. and we agree.. It needs some cooler images.Thanks to some very generous artists we will be sending a free update out soon with some very cool themes for score keeper.
We have a few images for MTG a number for Yu gi oh and pokemon. If you own some artwork you think would make a good back ground, and would like us to include it you can contact me here or at firstname.lastname@example.org
We have also made it a much smaller program.. and increased it's speed.
Let me know if you notice the changes. It should be released by the 21/04/2013. Let me know if you like the changes.

What a battle royal today.. Two sons verse the wise parents. Our secret to winning a 2 headed giant battle.. working together.
A mixed deck and a colourless deck against a Green and a White deck. The green and white got away to an early start thanks to a double mulligan which provided enough land to get the small creatures out and the fact that white deck is full of small flyers. Early damage done to the 2 sons via flyers and early life points gained due to a white deck life card.
Awful artifacts where brought out via the colourless deck, providing their creatures with first strike, vigilance, and finally flying. A couple of lucky destroy enchantment or artifacts card created some breathing space.. A couple of Thallid germinators provided cannon...

[c]Meekstone[/c]... this will be an incredibally short post... [c]Meekstone[/c] is one of the best cards ever, now you can stop any aggro deck pretty much :) the end!

if you want some serious mana ramping at a cost, get yourself a few [c]Phyrexian Altar[/c], its one of my favorite artifacts because you can fill your deck with low cost creatures, and then a playset of [c]Essence of the Wild[/c], heres how a nice game would play out in my mind:
1--- play a a land, then a 1 cost creature like a [c]Llanowar Elves[/c] or a [c]Birds of Paradise[/c]
2--- play another land, then play either [c]Phyrexian Altar[/c] or 3 more 1 cost creatures
3--- play a land if you can, then proceed to tap all you land, sacrifice all creatures you dont wanna keep (non-mana producing ones) and cast [c]Essence of the Wild[/c]
4--- tap your mana producers and all the land, then if you can and want to, sacrifice the mana producers to give you...

[c]Burning Wish[/c] is a GREAT card, for 2 mana, it allows you to get any card you OWN into your hand, well a sorcery, but still. and the advantage of that beyond the obvious things it you can take any sorcery of any card you own, and put that in your hand. its kinda like sideboarding in a card, but instead of putting it in you deck, if goes right to your hand! all for 2 mana!!!

[c]Shahrazad[/c] now, shes 50$ right now, i dont think shes worth that, but shes a crazy card, it gives you a chance to take your opponents life down to half their life total when you play this card... if she is in you or your opponents deck, be prepared to play a lonnnnnnggggggggg game.

Hey so i havnt poseted in a few days so im gonna do a few this mornin.
ok, so [c]Blood Moon[/c], i havnt ever played a legacy or vintage game, but im making a deck right now to get into it, but from what i hear, EVERYONE uses the original dual lands.... and i dont like that, so on turn 3, i can get out my [c]Blood Moon[/c] and stop those dualies, this card is especially good when youre facing a deck that doesnt have any red in there, then you opponent cant even cast his spells! and my legacy/vintage deck is a mono red goblins, and with [c]Goblin King[/c] givin all my goblins Mountainwalk, theyre all unblockable now :)

[c]Arcum Dagsson[/c], oh man is this guy crazy... he serves 2 uses in my mind, you can destroy an opponent's pesky artifacts, like [c]Sol Ring[/c], and you can also "[c]Tinker[/c]" each and every time you can tap Arcum! hes a great card and im not a huge fan of the Coldsnap set. Also, [c]Tinker[/c] is a 4$ card that gives you one shot at getting out your [c]Wurmcoil Engine[/c] at the cost of sacrificing your Zero-cost artifact, or you can get out your [c]Elbrus, the Binding Blade[/c], toss that B on a trampler and you got yourself a nice 13/13 flier with intimidate and trample for zero mana, [c]Arcum Dagsson[/c] is a great card, and you cant make an artifact deck without him as a main function of it.
Lemme know if yall got any ideas for these card discussions, and if you want, tell...
