Does Monocolor Work In Multiplayer?

You think that the color limitations actually affected our strategy? Not in THOSE days, pal. Heck, when I started out you had a very simple way of getting around the color limitations: You made a rainbow-colored deck that was six feet high and required three stout lumberjacks to shuffle. Games back then sometimes lasted for…

A Bad Matchup

Not so, I’m afraid. If this is still outside your experience, then I pray for Dame Fortune to continue smiling down on you. As for me, my life has been an unending parade of foiled endeavours. I take solace in the fact that I’m apparently picking up the slack for the remainder of the Human…

The Complete EVERYTHING MUST DRAW-GO Quiz

Rules: Each clue is a cryptic clue leading to (or an anagram of) the name of a Magic: The Gathering card eg. Mr Stallone Trips Over might be the clue for FALLING STAR etc. How many can you get ? 1.I parked around 2.Sounds like a ramble through some herbs 3.I’m tired, I think I’ll…

Ye Olde Inquisition

Mmm… Sobe. wasn’t kidding. This stuff is AMAZING. I love it. You should try it. It’s like Snapple on crack. Plus, it’s a lot healthier and tastier than a soda. My favorite flavors: Fuel (Strawberry), Energy (Citrus), (Orange-like), Wisdom (Mango), Drive (Fruit Punchy). And the caps say cool things, like Sobe Wan Kenobi and Sobemon….

Mmmmmmmmmana…Five Rules For Avoiding Mana-Screw

I’m starting to get truly excited about Regionals, even if I still don’t know when they’re occurring. In fact, all of Team Purple Pepper is more focused than I’ve ever seen them. Having the team has made us all better players and better deck-builders, and some of the craziness that’s being thrown around these days…

Lotus Prey

About six months ago, following a visit to PT London (and that whole debacle in Peter Adkison’s hotel room), I resolved to give up constructed Magic tournaments; this, of course, has meant that I don’t buy boosters or individual cards any more, though I have filled the void by playing much more Limited M:TG. Recently,…

Yes, Your Friends ARE That Stupid

Gosh, this hand would be perfect if it wasn’t for all the land. Who hasn’t thought this at some point? You have six land and one huge spell that’s almost guaranteed to win you the game if you can get it out. Or you have six killer spells and one land to start with. But…

The Tragedy Of Bad Rares (Or, Look At Me, I’m R&D!)

Bad Rares. It’s part of Magic, right? Sure it is, always has been. But should it be? I can remember a while ago, someone posted an article that talked about”skill-testing cards.” I think they were talking about in a Limited format, and how it takes some skill to see how good certain cards are; for…

Friday Night Magic, Why It Rocks!

The gunfighter walks into town, cocky. For some reason, gunfighters never seem to ride into town. He strides in from the dusty wasteland, proudly, fingering his meticulously shined pistols, itchy. Itching for someone, anyone, to give him an excuse to whip his pearl-handled Smith and Wessons out and blow said person away. After all, that’s…

How Much I Hate White

Now, I could end the article there and be pretty much done with this week’s offering, but I think Omeed would get perturbed and let it slip out in not-so-subtle ways toward the end of his columns: " ‘Been ’round the world, and now I see: No one’s clueless as Alongi.’ – My Own Poem,…
