This is probably the post where I should try and ensnare you and convince you to continue to read my blog. First of all, you’ll have to excuse the lack of fancy visuals and a gif of moonwalking Garruk, I’m a total newbie when it comes tot his kind of thing, but I’ll try and make things all fancy and pretty as the blog goes on.
So… Me and Magic. I’ve been playing Magic since just before Betrayers of Kamigawa, and haven’t made that many achievements worth shouting about-I think my most prolific accomplishment was making top 16 in a Win a Mox Legacy Tournament playing a Budget Pox deck. I’m a Rules Adviser and am technically practicing for my L1 Judge test. In terms of formats, I tend to avoid standard-off the top of my head I think I’ve played in five standard events since Zendikar came out. I dabble somewhat in Legacy, with a Burn deck and Spring Tide currently built, with the intent of upgrading to Spiral Tide at some point, so if anyone would like to donate three Time Spiral, three Force of Will, three Scalding Tarn and three Misty Rainforest, I’d find it difficult to refuse… My main format however is EDH. For me, Magic is a personal experience. Everyone has their own way of the having fun, and for me, its about doing big stupid things that look awesome, or cynical clever things that annoy the hell out of people. EDH is my medium, and as I’ve grown older,my decks at times have come to reflect on me and my state of mind. Of particular note was earlier this year when I was trying to establish some control within my life. This resulted in a very irritating and unfun Linvala deck which pretty much resulted in nothing happening in the game every, as a reflection of the rut I found myself in. I have since taken that deck apart. I openly admit to using other people’s decklists for assistance-my own Norin deck is almost identical to Gaka’s because I think the deck is that damn good.
I’m actually not too sure what exactly I’m going to write about-I have many random thoughts related to Magic in my head, so there’ll likely be some of those, the usual random decklists, and the chronicle of my Pack to Power.
So until next time, *witty slogan related to Magic*!
