After the Move!


So I finally have an actual, honest-to-God non-apartment place of my own. My boy is growing like a bad weed, so we needed to get more space. Our move happened this past weekend, and I am certainly glad that’s over. Every time I move, I breathe a sigh of relief once it’s done.

Moving is a pain in the ass, full stop.

However! Now that I’ve moved, my plan is to update this site more regularly, especially now that Ravnica 3 is out. The set is sweet, and I’m really looking forward to adding the new cards into my decks.

But seriously, ugh, moving. If you’ll excuse me, it’s time to unpack some boxes.


Guilds of Ravnica, Part Two


On Tuesday, I took a quick look at the upcoming set, Guilds of Ravnica, which starts Magic’s third Ravnica block. Many of the new cards spoiled look to be super fun for EDH and quite powerful, and are ones that I’m really looking forward to trying out in my own decks. Today, with lots more new cards spoiled since then, what else do I think looks good for the format?

Let’s take a look!

Return to Return to Ravnica!


Later today, we’ll be getting spoilers for the September big set, Guilds of Ravnica! Since Ravnica is by far one of Magic’s most popular settings, it was a no-brainer that we’d be going back there eventually, and I for one am definitely looking forward to seeing what Wizards has in store for their third attempt.

Let’s do a quick look at what will be in this set!

Sick as a dog


For the last two weeks, I, my wife, and my one-year old son have all been sick as dogs, so there hasn’t been much I wanted to put on this site. It’s true what they say; as soon as your kid starts going to daycare and hanging out with other kids, they (and by extension, you) are always sick.

More updates to come soon, however, as I am finally starting to feel better.

Dominaria in EDH


What a spoiler season it’s been for Dominaria, Magic’s spring set. First, the Chinese release notes were accidentally spoiled, leading to ~100 cards being spoiled. Then, Wizards released the English notes, so that people weren’t working with misinformation — this let us know that these leaked cards were legit. Since then, we’ve had a steady flow of new cards and information, letting us know that the Dominaria set was a truly awesome one, and one to really look forward to.

There’s been a lot of Dominaria spoiled since that initial flow. Let’s take a look at what I’ll be using in EDH!

Life Happens


Anyone who follows me, you’ll have noticed that my posts have slowed down in the past month or so. Life has been doing its thing, with my family being sick off and on, my son is getting his final molar waaaaaaaay ahead of schedule (and has been miserable doing so), etc etc.

I’ll be getting back to the Shandalar series and various other articles as soon as I can. And trust me, I am quite excited to get to writing more about Dominaria, since it looks amazing.


A Tale of Two Cubes


I’ve always liked drafting, and so the idea of a MtG Cube (a controlled Limited environment where you get to draft from a pool of powerful cards each time) is something that has always appealed to me.

I have built and disassembled two Cubes of my own, and now, I’m looking to assemble a new one. This is the story of my thought process around building this Cube.

Let’s take a look!
