I published over twenty lists for the new Standard in the last two weeks or so. One card that never made any of the lists, but was continuously in the back of my mind, is Psychic Intrusion.
A friend of mine offered to borrow me a deck if I wanted to try out Legacy, so I did. Went pretty well. 3-1. Better than I’ve done in Standard recently (although that’s in part because I’ve been mostly just using decks I haven’t thought of as good enough previously, but decided I wanted to try out anyway before the rotation).
After a couple of years of trying I finally managed to make a short visit to Häme Medieval Faire (held at Hämeenlinna during last August). Since I have no recollection of visiting this event ever before (this might be false since I was born in Hämeenlinna) I had no expectations for the event. And it blew my mind.
I thought I would be done with six parts, but during lunch I couldn’t help, but think about this one.
Control is a relative term. We’re not going full UW No Wincons in the main deck Control here. Just decks that will rarely or ever take the beatdown role in.
No general theme here, just some decks.
Well, plenty of problems here…
In sources, such as Chapin’s Next Level Deckbuilding, you can find easy rules of thumb for how you should count things like mana-elves, cantrips, and ramp spells in your deck. Generally those rules are simple, such as they should be counted as a half or a quarter of a land.
Well, since fetches are going to be in Standard again, lets try this out.
I’m quite sure that Aki had no intention of ever bringing this up. During this year’s Ropecon we decided to sumo wrestle for the title of the Strongest Writer on the Blog. It might have started out as a minor gag but it turned into an epic battle of mensweat and curses.
At the end of this challenge only one warrior stood on the hot tatami shouting praises to Crom and Thor. Lauri was the champion of this blog.
For your (well, mostly mine) entertainment here is the video of the final match!
