Known as the King of Fatties, Jamie Wakefield is revered as one of the greatest tournament report writers of all time. He's been to the Pro Tour five times, qualifying three times with decks of his own creation.
Friday, December 10th – I pick cards no one else is using and try to build a deck that’s interesting and surprising. Not being a smart guy, the only way I can do this is the â€œRockyâ€ method. I just pound meat until I get a title shot.
Monday, November 1st – My play skill sucks these days. I’ve lost more matches to stupid mistakes than I can count. I’m determined to play with actual skill and not just throw cards at my opponent and hope they land on his face.
Thursday, October 21st – Jamie’s first tournament experience in Madrid proves… interesting. The residents have two last names, no sense of personal space, and are addicted to Legacy. Jamie takes Secret Force to show ’em what he’s made of!
Monday, October 18th – Wendy is having a girls-only brunch, and weâ€™ve been wondering where I’d hide, where I’d go, or what I’d do. Voila, this place is having a Legacy tournament. Oh my God, do you know what this means? I can play Secret Force!
Thursday, October 7th – Scars is a weak set. I like weak sets. I just wish they made more of them in a row. Power creep is a bad thing. The most powerful cards of old are crap compared to cards available in Standard? Really? That seems wrong.
Monday, August 2nd – In this weekâ€™s edition of The Combat Phase, Jamie shares the story of his preparation for his final shot at qualification for Pro Tour: Amsterdam. He forgoes his pet Green deck for a more streamlined and successful archetype, and shares the highs and lows of his life in his usual Wakefield style.
Monday, July 19th – Continuing his quest to smash the metagame with Mono Green, King of the Fatties Jamie Wakefield thinks of turning to the Dark Side and sleeving up the Jund cards. Does he submit? Read on to find out!
Monday, July 5th – King of the Fatties Jamie Wakefield takes his Mono-Green deck for a spin at a recent PTQ. While he didnâ€™t set the venue alight, his stories from the journey and the tournament floor provide an entertaining read. He also supplies another mono-colored Standard deckâ€¦ one that doesnâ€™t use Forests!
Monday, June 28th – In todayâ€™s edition of The Combat Phase, Jamie Wakefield is doing what he does best â€“ tweaking his Mono Green deck! He shares another entertaining slice of his life, alongside the usual cast of characters, and remakes his Green deck in his ongoing quest for Pro Tour Qualification.
