I'm not normally in the business of plugging other Magic stuff out there, but I gotta give some mad props to @GoodTrollsLive, or  These three guys have started from tonight onward commentating over the SCG stream as a replacement to the often frowned upon commentary from StarCity's team.  It's a blast to head on with them and hang out, and even for those not normally interested in event coverage I recommend checking it out.  Make sure to say hello to myself (dndfreak in the chat) while you're there, and follow them on twitter to add to their growing army.

So I'm playing Hawks With Swords

So about a week before M11, I decided to leaf through my binder to see what I could have built for the new standard environment.  SuperShock is still a good deck, but is extremely anti-meta and the numbers need to be tweaked based upon what the field looks like.  Until the format re-establishes itself, I won't be slinging any Dark Tutelages any time soon.  Instead, I'm using the classic, 'nerfed' hawks with swords.

I was lucky enough to literally have the entire deck built minus Jace, TMS and two Stoneforge Mystics.  I sleeved up my list immediately and have been playing the same build since (not even adding Ponder/Oblivion Ring from M12).

So I Had a Fun Draft

This isn't a real article, I just had a blast down at my local release event and I thought I'd share my draft deck with you all.  Enjoy.

Cheap Weenies

A local player had asked me yesterday about a list for a budget white weenie list.  And by this I mean regular old weenies.  No Quests, no Puresteels, no Tempered Steels.  Regular old weenies.  Come to think of it, I don't believe you can find much in the archetype at the moment, so I agreed to write up a list.  Instead of a passed along note, I thought I'd share my list with all my followers out there.  Without any further ado, I give you my cheap weenie.

That's what she said.

Deck Tech: Tezzeret's Empire

Hey there, folks.  I know I've been gone a month, and it couldn't have been a worse time, but instead of being remorseful about the spoilers and bannings I missed, I want to jump straight back into the brewing game with a cycle of cards that have managed to pique my interest.
