A poor man's blog for Magic the Gathering (MtG), Wizards of the Coast (WoTC), deck construction, cards, combos, game play, MtG podcasts, etc.
What is "Magic: the Gathering"? Magic is a collectible fantasy-themed playing card game kinda combining Uno, War, Chess, and art dealing: match colors, draw 4, high card beat low card, different cards attack in different ways while you ogle hot chicks and dragons drawn by your favorite artists on cards you can sometimes sell for big money.
It's Pokimon for grown ups. Srsly, get your Pokimon player a Magic deck and they'll instantly sprout pubes and consider a career as a mathmatician.
*Tap* Your creature is a Changeling.
*Flash* Reminder: Your Changeling is a Sliver.
The last deck I built was a mono-blue Wizard/Changeling deck; Aethermage could fetch nearly any nonland card in my deck and I could play it for one blue mana (Stoneybrook Bannerett), but I could only find 2 Vedalken Aethermages at the flea market and I haven't gotten into the habit of using proxies, so I just canibalized the deck to start making my next one.
I'm surprised I haven't heard more about Changeling combos, especially with Slivers, but maybe I missed it because I just got back into MtG, and because the Time Spiral Slivers are rotating out of Standard in October.
