Today I played my first game of MTG, and it was incredibly fun. Thoroughly enjoyed it and certainly look forward to playing more in the future. I won 13 to -10 which was good!
I think I'll start off by working on a goblin deck (the deck I won with), so will get my first cards on Thursday (Tuesday today).

I actually have something to talk about, and it's been a little over a week since my last post. The thing I have to talk about is...well, not necessarily a new format, but certainly a new way of approaching deck design. And something I practice sporadically on MTGO.
I call it Naturalist. The idea is to build a deck using only lands and creatures. No instants, sorceries, enchantments ([c=Lucent Liminid]one exception[/c]), noncreature artifacts, or planeswalkers. "Summoner War" could possibly fit better, but in my opinion such a "format" would allow instants and sorceries that produce creature tokens.
You may be asking "Why would anybody want to do this?" I would retort with my own question: Why wouldn't they want to do this?
Over the years, creatures have steadily been gaining more and more...

Well that was amazing. And it was fun and exciting, stressful, bittersweet and ultimately my best Magic showing so far. But if it could have been better, I'm not sure I could have had any more influence on the final outcome. Grand Prix came to town; well, relatively close anyhow, so I made the effort to make it the other 100 or so miles. Charleston SC was where 661 people gathered for a Standard Grand Prix. Only 81 made the cut for day 2, and I was ecstatic to be one of them. I finished only 76th however, and that leaves something to be desired and provides us here with the meat of the story, it really was a tale of two very different days.
First off, I had been looking forward to some constructed high level Magic for a while now. I've been busy,...

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...

I've been neglecting posting on here for a long time due to real life getting in the way, so I want to power through the entire M13 set ratings since i'm so far behind. I apologize in advance for the long post, but it will still be sorted by color, so worst case, you can just scroll down until you see the color that you are looking for in bold. Lets begin with the ratings for those of you not familiar with them yet:
1 - This card shouldn't see much, if any play in EDH. Either very limited uses to one or two specific generals, or just bad.
2 - This card might see a little play, and it's not totally unplayable, but by no means should it see tons of play.
3 - This card is solid. Will see a respectable amount of play from decks in it's colors, and isn't too limited in it's strategy. ...
