Jaimie’s prerelease is in the books and who came out on top? Joel Roane was our winner. This win keeps Joel in a strong lock for 3rd in local DCI rankings. While I did not get a card for card decklist, I did get to lose to the deck. This was a very one sided event. Quick blue fliers backed by equipment from both Zendikar and Worldwake made for quick and deadly wins.
Here is the top ten run down from the event.
I always enjoy a prerelease at Jaimie’s. I enjoy seeing old and new faces. The setting is always pleasant and Jaimie always has the greatest things to give out as door prizes. I was happy to see stormy and...

So here is what I wrote right before Zendikar hit:
I think the fetches will stabilize fairly quickly in the $8-12 range with the UG fetch being much more popular than the others. A couple of cards that I think will start slow and then pick up steam are Summoning Trap and Malakir Bloodwitch. Both of those cards have buckets of potential and uses.
I feel pretty good about this call as obviously the fetches are right in that wheelhouse. Bloodwitch and Trap never really got off the floor although both have seen some play. I still love the witch, that card is bonkers.
Lotus Cobra is a trap I believe... and see this guy as an $8-9 rare which equates to a $14-16 mythic.
So far so good. Cobra has even gone a little below where I thought it would end up.
Another faller for me are the...

A friend of mine and I were discussing who has a better chance of working at Wizards by virtue of skills and knowledge.
Art references, storylines, key magic cards among other things.
I think I won by saying, "The entire time I was watching the movie Avatar, I was thinking, 'This is so Zendikar and the Kor seem different than the style guide.'"

This was my 2nd zendikar draft, and I liked my deck. I mentioned that I really pushed to go black for the removal, and tried to just splash other colors. I ended up with mainly black-blue, with a splash of white.
This deck was fun to play (although 0 rares!) especially when I could pop open Quest for the Gravelord. I picked the Windrider Eel first, not commiting...

Last week I participated in my second Zendikar draft, and really wanted to focus on landing as much removal as possible. I secured myself in black early on, with some blue in windrider eel and some white, including a journey to nowhere. In my second pack I opened Emeria Angel and Vampire Nighthawk. I stressed about this pick, because I had not yet picked anything with double white cost and wanted to only splash white if possible. I ended up going with the vampire, and I don't regret it. I ended up with a pretty good pool, including two copies of Quest for the Gravelord.
In my first match, I completed both quests in both games and it totally won me the game both times. In the second round, I lost 0-2 to a really fast black-blue deck, unable to use my hideous end on his black...

So here I am, only a few months into Magic, having started only at the cusp of the M10 release. I walked into the game store just to look around, when one of the magic decks caught my eye. A lone soldier, with his back to the wall, wiping blood from his sword, metres away from a gory kill. Such was the front card. What was that? Bant On the March? Conflux? It looked interesting... After having a look at it and reading the text in the back I decided...what the hell, I may as well try it. I grabbed that, An Esper Air Assault, and friend.
After the first game I was hooked. What a cool card game. Unlike the game I had been playing previously, this one was heavy on resource management...I liked it! And the way the decks adhered to their THEMES...very entertaining during the game. My friend...

Wel deze keer was er genoeg opkomst voor onze Zendikar draft.
Ik zou iedereen langs hier willen bedanken voor hun deelname en hopen ze terug te zien bij onze volgende draft.
Het was een aangename avond en ik vermoed dat dit voor de deelnemers ook zo was.
Spijtig genoeg was er nog 1 persoon die 30min. te laat was maar hij heeft toch nog een gezellige avond gehad.
Wel nogmaals bedankt en tot volgende keer.

We have tried a few of the magic variants, for multiplayer and for deckbuilding.
The five player game of 'star' where you sit all five around the table and each player is allied with the two people sitting next to them, and opposed to the two across. This made for some weird win conditions, as you would usually end up in an allied victory if any of your allies were left at the end. I wasn't...
