The Most Boring Column I’ve Ever Written

First of all, dear readers, I apologize for turning in a less-than-dazzling column. Unfortunately, one of my ferrets— yes, I do own them, how do you think I got the name?— died of seizures at the vet last night, and I’m not really feeling well enough to write my usual scintillating prose. Sleepy, the albino…

Blowing A Hole In The Metagame

You know what’s funny? Go through the StarCityCCG.com Archives and look at the pictures. There’s nothing funny about that. UNTIL… you start imagining the faces as photos on driver’s licenses. Look at‘em! Erik Berg’s“hey, hey! Now you’re giving me the speeding ticket FOR SURE!” Strapping Manuel Bevand! “I’m Too Sexy for the DMV!” So sexy…

The Future Of Extended

It goes without saying that the most recent changes in the Extended environment—the banning of and —will shake up the environment considerably. How’s that for the understatement of the year?

Price Of Progress: Team Sealed

First off, I’d like to apologize for the absence of my column, , over the past few weeks. Once in a long while, there comes a time when I’m qualified for an upcoming Pro Tour and I have nothing to do put practice. That makes for poor reading. On top of that, with the recent…

Faeries Of The Coast – A Rogue Choice For Regionals

Before splashed big in the metagame for Regionals, I was sitting in Neutral Ground playing a few friendly games of Type Two against Christopher Robin Senhouse. Breaking out a number of decks, I found myself constantly amused and annoyed at what I was losing to. "Attack you with my and Two ," said Chris. Down…

From Out The Mouth Of Manders

Sure, we’ll give you a passing grade. But first, let’s break your back with assignments and comprehensive testing. Lovely. I doubt this conjecture.
