  1. Small time Scottish MTG content creator.Find me on twitter @GenericBadMtgSupporter of all things Magic: The Gathering! My place to share my thoughts and feelings about new developments in MTG, deck techs and reviews to come!
  2. Like the title says, I’ve thought of what I’d like to do in the new year concerning my favorite tabletop game; Magic: the Gathering. Instead of just typing a whole bunch of paragraphs, I figure it’s easier to do it in a list form. Now I’ve mention resolutions, like the billions of other people who have made them (and not keep them past the 5 days of the new year). I’d like to call them goals. I feel like goals is a better word to use than resolution. With goals you are more tempted to achieve them, as opposed to just wishful thinking. That’s just my opinion. Like the most non-original resolution is to lose weight. But instead if I make it a goal to reach my mark by a certain time of the year, I feel more tempted to do so. We understand each other? Here are my list, remember this is only concerning Magic: the Gathering. Get more cards (obvious right?) Try to go to a tournament event (providing it’s near me) and either: Blog about it Play. Keep up on the metagame of tournaments happening elsewhere in the world. Do more FNM. Join in on pre-releases. Support my local game shops more often. Mention my editor more in my blogs, just because he’s an awesome guy for taking me on and make my articles make sense for you to read. Thanks Marc! [editor: no problems! Sorry I have been kept so busy during the holidays] Become a Judge It’s not a very long list but these are my goals for the new year I want to try and achieve. What’s your resolutions? Or if you want to call it goals, what are your goals for the new year? As always, thanks for reading my blog! [editor: my number one goal is to put back together the mono-red burn deck I made in 1995. There will be Goblin Grenades…]
  3. Every Saturday, starting November 26, 2016 until December 17, 2016, there will be a Standard Showdown at local game shops all over the world. You can win special prize promotional booster packs through undefeated play and other prizes determined by the game shop. To showcase the Standard format, the tournaments will be Swiss events and you bring your current Standard legal decks. Each store will receive 40 booster prizes, each containing a premium card from a currently legal Standard set, including Zendikar Expeditions and Kaladesh Inventions, not including double-faced cards. They will also contain two non-premium cards, that are either a rare or a mythic rare, from Battle for Zendikar on up to Kaladesh. Talk to your local game shops about hosting a Standard Showdown if they are not doing so themselves. Good luck to all you players attending. Play on players, play on like it’s your last day on Earth. As always, thanks for reading my blog!
  4. On november 11, 2016, WOTC released a set of five different 100 cards, 4 color, commander decks with 52 new magic cards that can be used in vintage and legacy, but not allowed in the standard, block constructed, or modern formats. Like the last set of commander decks they allowed the use of planeswalker as a commander, which in my opinion should’ve been allowed from the start. They did something a little bit different with the commanders this time, the key word is “Partner” What exactly is “Partner”? I’ll let the card (picture below) explain itself. Will it be useful in a game like commander? The answer is very simple, YES. the use of using two commanders in a deck can make it an very interesting game among the other players you play with. In commander if you get hit with 21 total points of combat damage the game is over, and in the new sets of commander with Partner on the card can hit you up to 21 points much quicker than just having one commander out where it can only do a little bit at a time. Just a warning: you may not have friends anymore after you kill everyone with your two powerful commanders. Just saying. Play on players, play on like it’s your last day on earth. As always thanks for reading my blog!
  5. On November 25, 2016, Wizards of the Coast will be releasing PLANECHASE ANTHOLOGY for a msrp price range of $149.00. Is it worth spending that much of your hard earned money? Let see if the contents of the product match the price tag. Planechase Anthology will have the planar and normal cards from Planechase and Planechase 2012, including the following: 4 ready to play decks from Planechase 2012 edition Each deck has 8 rare cards 35 double sided tokens Special edition planar die 4 spin down counters 4 slide deck boxes Brian Tinsman is the lead designer and concept on this set. He is also known for being the lead designer for the sets of Judgement, Scourge, Champions and Saviors of Kamigawa, Time Spiral, Planechase 2009, Rise of the Eldrazi, and Avacyn Restored. We don't know exactly what cards are going to be included in the set as of yet. Perhaps if there are spoilers we will get a better idea of whether it is worth $149.00 or not; it's kind of hard to say at this point. For some, it may be a bit much to spend all at once, especially so close to Christmas time. Perhaps if you share the cost with someone else it will make a good gift, or you could split the contents with a friend. The decision is really up to you. As always, thanks for reading my blog!

  7. I never knew about this before, but there is a flashback Modern tournament for the online community of Magic the Gathering players. The idea behind the year of Modern flashback is to give players, who haven't played Magic as long as some of the most experienced ones, a chance to play with sets they haven't played before. They started off with the oldest Modern legal set (8th edition) and moved forward each week with a different set, except for when pre-release and new standard sets are released. As of right now they're on break for the Eldritch Moon set and will kick off again on August 17th, 2016 with Zendikar. All of the formats are draft, so event tickets and play points are required to enter. Also note that instead of 14 Event Tickets or 140 Play Points like current drafts, these will allow you to enter with just 10 Event Tickets or 100 Play Points. If you have booster packs in your online collection for the particular set they are doing for that week, they will let you enter with those booster packs and 2 event tickets, only if you have 3 booster packs of that set. The rounds are single elimination of 3 rounds with a 10 minute deck building time, each round being 50 minutes long. The prizes for each week are as follows: 1st place will get 200 play points, 2nd place will get 100 plays points and 3rd-4th place will get 50 play points. As always, thanks for reading my blog!
  8. Zombies... Zombies everywhere… Running towards Emrakul (who has been causing too much trouble in Innistrad), trying to take the beastly creature down and restore peace among the townspeople. Who is this person that is able to raise an army of the dead and attack Emrakul? It is the return of Lilliana! Lilliana, the Last Hope's mana cost is pretty low, at only one colorless and two black to cast. Her loyalty counter is three, which is also pretty low; hopefully the other player doesn't get a chance to kill her too quickly. Lilliana's abilities seem to work great when coupled with a Zombie themed deck. Her abilities are as follows: [+1]: Up to one target creature gets -2/-1 until your next turn. [-2]: Put the top two cards of your library into your graveyard, then you may return a creature card from your graveyard to your hand. [-7]: You get an emblem with "At the beginning of your end step, put X 2/2 black Zombie creature tokens onto the battlefield, where X is two plus the number of Zombies you control." As I've asked before, will this be seeing play despite some of the bad comments made about this card so far? It’s possible that we will be seeing a lot of Zombie decks being brewed, maybe even with the Pro-Players. How do you feel about this new Lilliana? As always thanks for reading my blog!
  9. As the Eldritch Moon spoilers continue, it is revealed that two Planeswalkers will be making their return to the Magic the Gathering world, as they try to take on the mighty Emrakul, the Promised End. The Planeswalker I want to talk about first is originally from the Avacyn Restored: Tamiyo, Field Researcher. (Pictures below). Tamiyo costs one less mana to cast, though this time it is with three different colors: Green, White, Blue, and one Colorless, instead of three Colorless and two Blue. The new Tamiyo starts with 4 loyalty counters, just like the original Tamiyo did. Additionally, she has some interesting abilities. Those abilities are as follows: +1: Choose up to two target creatures. Until your next turn, whenever either of those creatures deals combat damage, you draw a card. -2:Tap up to two target nonland permanents. They don't untap during their controller's next untap step. -7: Draw three cards. You get an emblem with "You may cast nonland cards from your hand without paying their mana costs." Will this new Tamiyo get a lot of gameplay in the tournaments in the future? I know if I have Tamiyo in my deck I will definitely use her on the tabletop, but that’s just my opinion. As far as seeing this card being used a good amount by pro players, or used in the Grand Prix, we will have to wait for it to be released officially. How do you feel about the new Tamiyo? What type of deck would you build around her? As always, thanks for reading my blog!
  10. The spoilers has started for eternal masters that will be released on June 10, 2016. While it may not print card from the reserve list but it will have many great modern staples. Eternal masters was designed to be a unique and fun drafting experience with cards throughout the history of magic to enhance your cube, legacy, and vintage decks. Yes there will be planeswalkers too, Jace the mind sculptor and dack fayden. You can get your look at the spoilers from MYTHIC SPOILER'S website and see for yourself just how awesome this set of the masters series is going to be! As always thanks for reading my blog!
