  1. Rares and some promos from the weekend
  2. I judged the midnight prerelease Saturday (without playing, since my pool was very medium) and cube drafted for a few hours that morning. Saturday afternoon I played WB and had some pretty solid removal and a few good creatures, but no real bombs. I went 3-3 and skipped the 2HG tournament after in favor of food and sleep to rest for Sunday's tournaments. Sunday's individual pool gave me some good white and green legendary creatures and legendary matters spells in Arvad and a Vile Offering off a Woodland Cemetery splash and a couple basics, but lacked a good removal suite otherwise and I struggled to go 4-2 to finish just outside the prizes. There were an odd number of players for the 2HG tournament and my ride was sticking around to judge the event, so I signed up with the extra player and got 2nd place with my WB deck full of removal, fliers and a Karn and his GR midrange deck splashing for a couple late game fliers and tricks in blue. After opening a box for judging and consolidating my pools from the tournaments, I have some pieces for green stompy and UR Wizards for standard if those decks take off, and a decent stack of trade bait for some friends, and hope to be ready for standard FNM this coming weekend with some updated decks. And for now, I'm off to catch up on laundry and sleep. Pics of promos and notable rares to come.
  3. My LGS is selling all of them at MSRP. I bought a Hazoret Aggro deck to finish up my mono-red deck to add to the standard deck pool (GBu Snek, WU control with and without Approach, UB midrange, and now red). I didn't play it out of the box until I finished the upgrades to the top tier version that's been wrecking the GP and Open Series, but a buddy of mine bought Vehicle Rush and went 2-2 with the stock 75 (even beating out Grixis energy and UW Approach). These are solid, competitive decks for people with a bit of experience looking to get back into standard without breaking the bank.
  4. I usually bring trades, playmats, dice, paper for tracking life, taking down notes and trades in progress, extra decks to play if there's time between other games/matches, and snacks/drinks depending on the location.
  5. My current EDH win conditions are: Tooth and Nail for Mikaeus the Unhallowed and Triskelion and Necrotic Ooze in play with Phyrexian Devourer and Walking Ballista or Triskelion in the graveyard.
  6. Vendilion Clique, Vindicate, Rishadan Port and Ensnaring Bridge spoiled this morning
  7. If you do play reanimator, you'll face a lot of lands decks. For those matchups, I like going for a fast Inkwell and racing the Marit Lage, or Tidespout Tyrant and holding up an instant to bounce any 20/20s. Turn 1 Sire of Insanity on the play also wrecks them pretty hard, since they lose all their ramp pieces and disruption in one go.
  8. For more (unoffical) spoilers as they start rolling in:
  9. Find some fun ways to play the game when you do get the time, like cube, commander, pauper. This will help you keep the fundamentals of the game fresh, while minimizing your investment in winning, which should allow you to have fun playing a bit more often and with less effort.
  10. I hope these go to box stores and not just card shops so the MSRP sticks and these stay affordable and widely available. These will be a huge shot in the arm for the standard players on budgets.
  11. A lot of us are drawn to different art styles and select lands based on what we find most aesthetically pleasing, while others prefer borders that stand out to make fetching easier, especially in decks that search out basics often.
  12. Treetop Village is a cheap creature land that can help you fight off mana flood. Savage Lands gives you access to all your colors, but always comes in tapped. Evolving Wilds can fix your mana while triggering revolt for Fatal Push if you plan on picking those up. Abrupt Decay is $3-4 and can destroy early problem permanents (most GBx decks run 2-3). Inquisition of Kozilek can snatch any early threat or disruption and are down to a few bucks each as well. Hooting Mandrils, Gurmag Angler, and Tasigur the Golden Fang are decent sized threats that won't break the bank and can be cast after a couple Evolving Wilds, or discard/removal spells. Tasigur can even buy back key cards from your graveyard later in the game.
  13. That deck was disgusting to watch. They were some of the fastest feature matches of the pro tour.
  14. I was at work (Fred Meyer-a Kroger grocery store) when it happened and didn't feel anything, though I heard some of the aisles shook slightly and some of my coworkers felt it a bit. I certainly heard all about it within 5 minutes of the shake, and we were on tsunami watch til 3 A.M., though nothing came of it because of how the plates shifted, deflecting the water mostly away from Alaska.
  15. The former Twin player in me wants to take the Exarch and try to nab the rest of the combo, drafting a UR tempo or control shell around it, but the safe picks are Cast Out or Doom Blade for the instant speed removal. Those are my top 3, in order by my preferences. Cast Out also takes the only white card out of the pack for signaling purposes and is logically the top pick IMO.
