Blog the Magic Gathering

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.

How it started:

After being a beach bum for a while, I decided to get back into Magic: the Gathering, went to a card shop, spent my last $20 on some commons, buying whatever cards I liked for whatever reason, mostly for the art, so I didn't end up with much in the way of a playable deck, but I had fun Johnnying my cards, got a decent overview of the common cards in the present Extended game, and I found I was leaning heavily towards Black/Blue when I went to the local gaming store and bought a booster pack of Shadowmoor and the pack just happened to be heavy on Black/Blue Merfolk. A few days later I was at the Beaches Branch Public Library and downloaded Dethklok to my iPod, because I enjoyed Metalocalypse once or twice, and as I listened to the first two songs I felt like the synchronicities were mounting and I was inspired this start this project.
