Blue-Black Barely

Finally got one, sheesh

I finally achieved a good result in an Ixalan Sealed League, after posting multiple 5-4’s, 4-5’s and even a 3-6! This sealed format sucks, I only keep playing it because my core love of Magic is so strong. (i.e. I am addicted) Anyway, I went 7-2 with this red-white no-synergy deck, splashing black for Vona, […]

Suxalan Sealed

This is me after posting losing records in like six consecutive sealed leagues: I accept responsibility, to a degree, for my poor performances but I think this sealed format kind of sucks.

First tries at Ixalan Sealed

Did an Ixalan prerelease at the nearby LGS but pretty much pooped the bed, nothing interesting to report.

Did my (most likely) last HOU-AKH draft down at the store and also my last sealed league online before Ixalan hits. My last league deck was only okay, but I was happy with it – triple Open Fire and double Struggle // Survive was nice, and I had big poppa Sifter Wurm up top. Manabase […]

Hour of Devastation

Have had some moderate success in my first few passes at Hour of Devastation limited. Well, in sealed at least; in my first draft I insta-died. In my first prerelease sealed, I went 5-1 with a base blue-white deck: Hour of Devastation Prerelease (2017-07-08)Lands (17)1 Desert of the True6 Plains7 Island2 Swamp1 ForestCreatures (14)1 Proven […]

Grand Prix Omaha 2017

Spent a nice weekend at Grand Prix Omaha recently, brought along Chris to keep an eye on me. I’m due for a bender (I think I average one per quarter) so it was prudent to have a spotter around. As it happened, I was wholly responsible the entire time and got into zero trouble. I […]
