You Can Write About Magic, Part One

I just realized something. This February marks the one-year anniversary of this website. Or, at the very least, a year since I started working on it! So, happy birthday, www.starcitygames.com. For this special occasion, I thought I’d address a topic that doesn’t get a lot of coverage in the Magic world: how to write a…

Aggro-Control

Over the next three weeks I will be getting more specific on deck types. Last week I gave you a peek at my thoughts on the main decks in the format, specifically the types that made top 16 in GP Seattle. Now I will give you my versions of these decks and deeper thoughts. Aggro-Control…

Disney-Freaking-World?

Alright, faithful readers… I have a question for you. Was my article posted at the top of today’s articles? If it wasn’t, I need a favor from you. Mailbomb our good editor with your outrage that you had to scan down the page to find my article. I mean, do you really want to have…

Crude Title Edited For Your Protection

This week’s article is being brought to you in spectacular HUBRISVISION, allowing you, the reader, a more realistic experience. More capitalisations! More rhetoric! Watch my ego grow in realtime! Bigger, faster, stronger, more! It’s all here with HUBRISVISION! And now, today’s feature, brought to you by Bounty (It’s the coconut-kick-in-the-face!) : Let’s take a quick…

My Maiden Voyage Into Extended: The Advertures Of Limey.Dec

My first-ever Extended tournament has come and gone. Overall, I found Extended to be one of the most stressful environments I’ve experienced in Magic. Opponents can on turn two. They can Oath their entire library into the graveyard and cast a mammoth . They can attack with two Pups, you, you, double for eighteen points…

Who Wants To Be A Type II Player?

First of all, let me apologize to everyone for my rapidly published articles on this site. I just can’t stop writing about Magical cards. (Was that used correctly? I’d better check the dictionary.) Of course, I haven’t received one piece of mail regarding my writing on this site, so I imagine that I’m not offending…

Why Nemesis Is Good For Magic

Did you know that the Chinese use the same word for "crisis" as they do for "opportunity?" If you answered "yeah, crisitunity!" score yourself three points. In Magic, I think we’re getting a bit of a crisitunity right now. That crisitunity is better known as Nemesis. When , president of www.starcitygames.com, asked me which Nemesis…

Turning A Good Magic Player Bad

NLY A SMALL RANT IN THE GRAND SCOPE OF THINGS I wanted to start out this week’s column by sharing some feedback from you, my not-so-humble readers. Please note that I’m going to probably take these horribly out of context, just so I can feel justified ranting. "… It’s hard to put forth your ideas…

My Column Doesn’t Have A Title Yet

You know, I just don’t get enough email with one column on one web site. I’ve decided I need more. So here I am, expanding my miniature empire, regaling you with yet more stories, thoughts, and meanderings on casual Magic play. This column doesn’t have a title yet – I wanted to call it "Star…

Preparing For Extended

Well folks, it has been quite a long time since my last article. Down but not out, I’m back to talk about extended. The last article you got from me was my last attempt at PT Chicago. I lost in the top 8. Since then I have competed in four qualifiers for PT LA, missing…
