Set Review – Magic 2015

2015 set review. Looking to have two deck-techs up in the next couple of days.

Set Review – Conspiracy

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=drFlnCf96Dk New microphone in action. Quick little diddy on Conspiracy. Unfortunately not a huge selection, but that’s understandable given the design circumstances. Look forward to a Deck Tech later tonight. Cheers

Set Review – Theros

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OggK2v6arc8 The last review from Theros block. Looking to pump out reviews across past sets for “hidden gems” or non-obvious inclusions (aka things that aren’t Tarmogoyf).

Set Review – Born of the Gods (Revised)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bzjoAzDx2uA Revised version of my original set review. I’d like to think this yielded a cleaner finished product. Theros review coming up.

Set Review – Journey Into Nyx

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3qx2pkW8Js0 Reviewing the various cards from Journey Into Nyx. Tried to trim down the review, and get right to the point (with certain cards). Still struggling with finding how to optimize the final product with Camtasia. Will post a revised Born of the Gods and a Theros set review later today.

Wildfire Walk with Me

Earlier this week, local cube draft aficionado and overall great guy Trenton McIntyre asked me if I had any thoughts on the topic of Wildfire strategies in Highlander.

So rather than explaining my adoration of the six mana sorcery to… Read More »Wildfire Walk with Me

2013 in Review: The Highlander Points List – Part 3. Moving Forward

Paying for Premium In my first post of the series, I covered the four categories a card featured on the points list could fall under.

2013 in Review: The Highlander Points List – Part 2. Points Development

2013 started off with a points list already in effect. The list had been tuned, worked upon, and drastically altered across the experimental trip known as 2012. With the list being functional and tournaments still sporting impressive numbers, the community wasn’t exactly unprepared for the possible advancements of our beloved format.
