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…

Nemesis: Twelve Nifty Uncommons For Type II

I’m feeling a little frustrated with Magic these days. More specifically, I’m feeling a little frustrated with how little I play. I fully expected to head to Neutral Ground: SF’s weekly Type 2 this weekend until I realized it would mean missing both NFL championship games. That makes three weeks in a row that something…

Breaking Down The Metagame: Type II

I love Type II. Um, I guess everyone knows that. I’d like to thank everyone who has signed my petition for a Type II Pro Tour – the response has been better than I imagined. One last time, if you haven’t signed it, please do so. It should be lying around starcityccg.com for a little…

Dance Dance Donate Illusions

Something has gone horribly, horribly awry. In many important ways, reality is not matching my expectations of it. This is cramping my style. For instance, why do I not get top billing on this site? It seems to me that my columns are a shining jewel in the crown that we call the internet. Yet…

Kicking Off Extended At Star City

Last weekend kicked off the Extended season, with all eyes peeled on Grand Prix Seattle to glean the latest tech from the pro’s. However, some of us made the trek to Star City in Roanoke, Virginia to jump into Extended feet first, to try out decks first hand in the quest for the coveted Pro…

Justice? What Justice?

Part of me wishes I had better news for you. I wanted to be able to start this week’s foray into the realm of words with a screamed-out "I’M ON THE TOUR!," and I really can’t. I mean, would I lie to you? Of course, but I wouldn’t lie if I knew I’d be found…

The Colors Of Magic

Okay, now, go pick up a Magic card. I know you’ve got some lying around or, if you don’t, go slip one out of those black-backed sleeves. Did you do it? Good. Now, look at the back of that card. Notice the colored orbs. Notice their placement. In clockwise order, from the top, they are…

We Want A Type II Pro Tour!

You know, when you want to change something inside a system as large and autocratic as Wizards of the Coast, there are two ways to accomplish your goal: 1) Go through the proper channels. 2) Bloody revolution. Since there is absolutely no way that I’m going to storm Seattle, slaughtering WotC employees (they’ve had enough…

Down With Islands!
