Hour’s up

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 […]

Amonkhet Prerelease

Opened some good rares at the Amonkhet prerelease, including a Glorybringer and a Hazoret the Fervent. I think my pool clearly wanted to be red-white, but I also dipped into black for Gravedigger, 2x Final Reward and the aftermath half of Start // Finish. I splashed off of 1x Evolving Wilds + 2x Swamp. I […]

Aether Revolt Sealed 9-0

Got my second-ever 9-0 in MTGO Friendly Sealed League with a powerful black-green deck. I did not have a lot of artifact synergy to go along with the Herald of Anguish but that card’s a bomb even if you’re not exactly “going off” with it.

Riding the Skysovereign to a 9-0

Achieved my first-ever 9-0 in a Friendly Sealed League on Magic Online. You need to catch some breaks to win 9 in a row, it helps to start by opening some unfair mythics.

My Kaladesh prerelease pool produced a serviceable green-red deck, my promo foil was the oh-so-exciting Territorial Gorger. Yippie.
