My name is Les Kershaw. I have been a Magic player since Revised and played until Mirage, I then got married and had kids, thinking my days of flipping cardboard were over. Then about two years ago a a work mate heard I played many years ago and thought I may want to get to know a new group of people and see if I still have the ‘spark’.
After trying to get my head around the concept of no mana burn, no damage on the stack and the use of these new fangled things called planeswalkers. I started to look at another part of this beautiful game, deck building.
Back in the day of Mirage and Ice Age I was a HUGE fan of the Ernie-geddon deck. a creature tempo deck that would shut you out for the win. Casting Aramgeddon to destroy all your lands and only have my Dijinn on the board was a game winner.
After my return to walking the planes. I made the odd creature deck and that was fine, then I made a Tempered Steel deck. Oh boy, the deck was fast and could kill you in four turns. It was potent and apart from the Mox opals was a relatively cheap deck to build.
Fast forward to 2012 and there are a few decks that rock my world, Delver is a great tempo deck, Red Green Aggro, Esper Control have all been seen by me smashing face at my local games store on a Friday night.
But M13 is on the way and this is the best time for brewers to make a name for themselves. So here I am, writing a blog and sharing my thoughts on a few deck ideas I have running through my head. I hope a few people read my blog and get an idea for there own deck.
