EDH Deck Time: Tormod + Ghost of Ramirez DePietro

Tormod seems interesting, if underpowered, but than again, all partners should be underpowered, because you do get two. Looking at the various potential partners, the only one I found fun enough is Ghost of Ramirez DePietro, another underpowered commander. I do also like how Ghost enables a certain amount of diplomacy, even if that is kind of hard to utilize.

Tormod, the DesecratorGhost of Ramirez DePietro

WHat to do with this pair? Madness? I guess it doesn’t actually work due to the new rules. Delve? That’s are handily largely in blue and black. Both also have plenty of self-mill and cycling, which are helpful.

Aika jonka sain (One Half of Me) Review

I don’t usually write negatively about movies. I would much rather give recommendations and discuss the ways movies enrich our lives. But I’ve had this movie in all it’s shittiness on my mind for almost two weeks now, so I might as well try to get it out of my hed.

10 Obscure Movies I Would Highly Recommend

For the purpose of this article I’m going to make a clear rule: Obscure (in this particular case) is a movie which has less than thousand votes on IMDb as of this writing (because several have close enough to 1,000 to potentially cross that line in the near future). The problem with this approach is that obviously older movies don’t get the same attention on IMDb as newer movies. These might have been cult hits back in the day, but I’m just not aware of it.
