Biography

One day, I will build a working deck around Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded. Towards it I roll, the all-destroying but unconquering planeswalker; to the last I grapple with it; from hell's heart I stab at it; for hate's sake I spit my last breath at it.

Side Rant – Supply and Demand

This is a rant. It was cranked out somewhere in the neighborhood of half an hour. It rambles, it makes wild assertions, and offers no solutions or wisdom to speak of. Enjoy.

Pretty Sure it’s the Law

If there’s one truism of Magic cards, it’s that as hobbies go, this is a damn expensive one. …

Yogurt Decks – Death and Taxes

Let’s talk a little more about Legacy. I don’t know if you know this, but Legacy is where budget decks go to… well, not die exactly. I mean, if you’re slowly consumed by a speculator-driven price machine, and your physical form is conscripted into service while some small part of your mind is allowed to …

Yogurt Decks – Troll Worship

Why else might you want to substitute out cards or strategies? We’ve covered restrictions of budget and format, but there’s another reason you might not want to play an established decklist: because people know it’s coming.

Let’s talk about Bogles.

For a brief window, about this time last year, it looked like hexproof and auras …

Yogurt Decks – Hunted Orb

Different formats will limit your choices, and force you into finding substitutions for various cards and combos. So today we’re going to import a Legacy …

Yogurt Decks – UrzaTron

UrzaTron, UrzaTron. As we mentioned last time, one of three decks that collectively make up a full third of the Modern metagame. Of course, being a competitive deck, it costs a fortune. It runs , , , and a fair number of mid-price cards like , , , and besides. If that’s the support structure, …

Yogurt Decks – Melira Pod

What’s going on with Melira Pod? Seriously, now… this is a thoroughly competitive deck by any estimation; it wins tournaments left and right, it gets netdecked at FNMs across the country, and is one of three decks that collectively make up a full third of the Modern metagame (alongside Jund and UrzaTron). But the core …

Yogurt Decks – Modern Jund

Hi, welcome to the first installment of Yogurt Decks. Why yogurt? Well, because sometimes a recipe calls for sour cream. But you know, in a pinch, yogurt will do. And that’s what we’re going to do here, with Magic decklists. We’re going to substitute cards, combos, and sometimes even whole colors until we come up …
