    I had previously made Call of Duty YouTube videos when I played competitive COD. After switching spending all of my time on COD to all of my time on Magic, I decided to create a new channel based on Magic. My initial goal was to get more subs on my MTG channel than on my old COD one. The old COD one had just over 220 and my MTG channel now has just over 2260, so I've achieved my goal! I think my love for this game is what keeps me motivated the most. This game has pretty much become my life at this point, but I'm having a ton of fun with it, so all is good!

    A guy at the local game store told me he had a youtube channel so I checked it out and thought to myself, hey I can do that! So I did. I'll admit, my interest is waning in the creating content realm, but I do get excited about a new idea once in a while.

    I think I've talked about this before, but I started creating content simply because I download a package of editing software, which included a screen recorder. You can download screen recorders for free, of course, but I never really needed one. However, after having one sitting on my desktop for awhile, I randomly decided to turn it on while playing MTGO, just to see how it worked. I didn't record audio or anything, I was literally just recording my screen. Anyway, afterwards I watched the video and thought, "Hey, I could probably commentate my games while playing them and then post it on Youtube, why not!?" And so it began... I had no idea how much time I would spend editing. Currently I dedicate the vast majority of my free time to editing videos, typically 3-4 hours straight at night when I get home, which results in 2 videos per week that get 30-40 view each. I'm not even sure what keeps me motivated at this point. I've stopped doing the things I used to do in my free time (like play video games and read books) to edit, and yet there really isn't a point to it. It's never going to be profitable, Magic: the Gathering content doesn't have the audience to pull in a large-enough crowd for that to ever be a realistic possibility, and yet I still do it anyway! I suppose reading books and playing video games didn't result in profit either. So, it really is just a hobby, like any other hobby. I'm only doing it because I enjoy doing it, plain and simple!

    So this image was released recently, it's a promo mountain that's going to be handed out at GPs. This isn't replacing GP promos, but rather seems to be a bonus promo for playing side events. Anyway, a lot of people are speculating about the art. Technically there is nothing to say that the promo art should be connected to future sets, but it's so WEIRD. Why put THIS THING in the middle of a basic mountain art for no reason? What do you guys think? Do you think it has any ties to whatever set will come after Ravnica?

    Just a quick update on the site and it's new resources. In November we were really close to exceeding CPU usage and having site downtime. I guess this is kind of a good news/bad news situation. As a result, I've uninstalled some mods that weren't being used and started restricting certain features to users who aren't active, namely RSS feeds. Just mentioning this as you'll notice a few things are gone or different. Nothing major, but just a heads up

    Yeah. Sweet. But $340 more. That's also a big jump. The difference in price for the desktop version of those cards is around $50. Seems a lot more money, but you are getting 8Gb more DDR4 (£65), and what appears to be a better screen, as well as that GPU jump from 1050ti to 1060. From that cursory glance, the 1060 is around 25-33% faster across those sample games. What's that worth to him as a gamer, and you as a payer. There's a couple of free gaming bundles down the page, include COD BLOPS 4. https://www.amazon.com/Computer-i7-8750H-802-11-Backlit-Keyboard/dp/B01MZ9XPXA/ref=sr_1_10?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1544025189&sr=1-10&keywords=laptop+1060&refinements=p_n_feature_four_browse-bin%3A2289792011 Cheaper, bigger screen. Has SSD AND a 1TB HDD. Does not have go-faster design.

    Of the comparable list that Amazon present, it certainly the best of offer. Had a quick look at Dell too, and they are more expensive for lesser models. CamelCC says it's the cheapest it's ever been. Aside from building your own, without a single vendor warranty, it looks decent enough. Without going into it further, the 1060 seems to have a decent step-up in terms of gaming performance. https://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Nvidia-GTX-1060-3GB-vs-Nvidia-GTX-1050-Ti/3646vs3649 The only other potential issue is the size of the SSD. It will fly for sure, but some games starting to get up to 100Gb. I've been using a mix in my gaming PC, and have concluded that most games have no issue with being copied around from drive to drive on mass. So if you're happy to use a fuck-off external HDD, and shift games around on the SSD, problem solved. I have a laptop (not for games) with a 120gb SSD and after Lego <something> and minecraft, it's full.

    It looks like an advanced yet ruined structure, and I want to say Vyrn, maybe something used for channeling magic,...

    I got a Theros vibe, myself. If I play side events at GP Vancouver, I'd love to score one of these

    I did a bit of writing for a long defunct website (casual Magic focused), but anytime I think about doing a podcast or stream, I realize that my old potato PC can't do much and how much work is involved. Recording is one thing, but editing, uploading, etc? Oh, man....
