I went to an EDH tournament at my store today, 1v1 rules, French banlist. I ran a bullshit Linvala voltron which was basically White goodstuff that I threw together last minute. I got shit on by two seperate Vendilion Clique decks and another guy playing Oloro basically just shut me down and played with himself, but I did eke out a win against a black Mikaeus and a Marath. I really hate the notion that you have to run Blue to be competitive in EDH or Magic in general. I kind of want to build a Blue hate deck specifically for the next tournament.
I love that Naya is finally getting a general that isn’t strictly “you must build around me.” This guy enables a lot of interactivity and some people are already calling it the Naya Ghave and I love it.
Gays? In my Magic the Gathering?
It’s more likely than you think.

Mind taking a look at my two new EDH decklists? I haven’t gotten to playtest them yet, but I think they’re decent enough. These were made with the French 1v1 Banlist in mind, so that’s why I’m not running Sol Ring, etc.
Basically they’re both aggro, Skullbriar being mostly a voltron build and Tajic being largely reliant on tokens, multiple combat phases and late-game bombs.
Apparently my store’s DCI suspension is lifted tonight so we can finally have a sanctioned FNM for the first time since the spring.
Just the art from this set is enough to get me pumped. Maybe after the success of Innistrad, Wizards finally got a hang of this whole “top-down design” thing.

- Erebos, Black God of the Dead
- Nylea, Green Goddess of the Hunt
- Thassa, Blue Goddess of the Sea
- Nyx, Red Goddess of the Night Sky
I somehow pulled 3 of these during last week’s draft and actually got some good use out of them. I just kept laughing at the flavor text:

I’m at my first FNM in three months and I’m making so many goddamn mistakes but I don’t care because M14 is fun.
