Blog Elemental – Let’s Get This Party Started

One of Magic’s favorite mad geniuses has decided to experiment with a daily column, and we’ve decided to let him. Take a peek inside for all the goings on.

I have decided to write a Magic blog. Knutson has decided to publish it. Freaky.

Who am I? I’m a Magic player of course. More specifically, I’m a”casual player” who has flipped cards since Ice Age. I’m also an”online player” who currently owns few non-digital cards. I’m also a”featured writer” who has written for the likes of StarCityGames.com and Magicthegathering.com, usually about kooky deckbuilding. I’m also a”names and flavor text writer,” starting with Fifth Dawn and currently working on Betrayers of Kamigawa. If you have an interest in any of these perspectives, by all means tune in every day.

That’s right, I’ll be writing every friggin’ day. It’s an odd paradox that I have more time for a daily blog than a weekly article, but it’s true. Ted and I have decided to give this idea of mine a month to kick the tires and see if it’s worth pursuing further. June is the Blog Elemental Beta, or something.

I have a lot of other things going on in my life – a wife, son, job, friends, novel I’m writing, and other gaming, for example. But this isn’t a blog about my life; It’s my Magic blog. As a result, I promise that every day will be relevant to Magic without a lot of other crap to gum up the gears.

Or cogs, or whatever.

I guarantee you won’t like every day, but give it a week or so and you’ll have an idea what I’m trying to do. Speak up in the Forums about what you’d like to see more or less of and I’ll try to adjust accordingly.
