New Blog

Wow I haven't blogged since I was in high school, but that went semi-successfully so what's the worst that can happen right? I've once again decided to give my two cents to the internet, to repay it for all it's done for me. If you want to give a theme to my blog it would probably be MTG, but don't expect me to stay on topic all the time. I spend a lot of time playing magic but that's not all I do.

As for right now, I'm brushing up on new cards for the Mirrodin Besieged launch next week. I didn't get a chance to go the pre-release due to lack of cash, but I got paid in time to make the launch. The last launch I went to I placed first with an undefeated record, so I can't slack off when I've got an image to uphold (really M11 was just overly nice to me luck-wise, but that's not the point). The first thing I've got to decide is, mirran or phyrexian. Maybe I should make a pro's and (other pro's?) list to help me decide:

Phyrexian Pros
  • Sweet infect cards
  • Awesome release card
  • Best limited Zenith (black one obviously)
  • Living weapons

Mirran Pros
  • Er... people won't think you're following the crowd by picking Phyrexian?

Ok so it's obviously a little more involved than that, but it's clear i've made my decision. I like to win, so I'll be fighting for the phyrexians. Now that that's decided, i'm off to study the cards (all the cards, I have to know what my opponent's are playing too), and hopefully I can catch a bit of luck tomorrow. I'll be back then to post my results (and hopefully do a bit more of an involved blog post, this is my first one in a long time after all. I'll get better I swear!)



  1. mmm, distant memories looks like a nice card

  2. I've been wanting to get back into Magick, I'll follow you and see if it's enough to get me going again :)

  3. Nice blog, i'm not into Magic, but hell I love a good read. P.S. I'm not a girl, that was a guest author on my blog!
