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.

Alernative Magic Format: The UnSideboard

There's a new Magic: the Gathering format designed to make any of your favorite decks and any of your favorite formats even more favoriter! :D Yes, it can be played with any deck in any format. Sound interesting? It is. Do this...

Get your favorite deck and invest the cost of lunch in a sideboard made with cards from Unhinged and Unglued. Hey, cheapskates, it's only 15 cards, you can afford it. ;) It adds hundreds of cards to your card pool for all sorts of wacky high-jinks which bring your favorite deck to an all new level of awesomenessosity, making even your tired old worn-out decks new and fun. Yes, Spike, Magic CAN be fun. :) In fact, if your games are lacking fun, you need to remind yourself MtG is a game and SHOULD be fun and the UnSideboard is how you do it.

Unsets like Unhinged and Unglued are awesome, this is undeniable, even people who know they will never play an UnGame in their life often buy one or two UnBoosters here and there for the fun of it, because they're awesome. ^_^ So, people DO like UnSets, they DO buy UnBoosters, they just only buy a few boosters. Ok, that's fine, let's take that trend in consumer spending and put it to good use so our consumers walk away with product they will actually use. They haven't been buying enough for UnDecks, but they HAVE been buying enough for UnSideboards. :)

Now, Mr. Rosewater, here's what you do to make UnSet cards for fun and profit: stop wasting money on token cards people don't want, take them out of boosters and put them in packs of their own so people can order the tokens they want from dealers. Cha-CHING! There you go WotC, saving money, can't argue with that. Now replace the token slot in the booster with an UnCard, increasing market exposure for your beloved Unproduct line and reminding stodgy ole Spikes not to burn themselves out due to the monotony of dream-crushing. Put a laugh in every booster, keep consumers happy, $$$, you win. :)

UnSideboard. GO! ^_^
