I haven't played in a long time, but I was loved playing! I was one of the only girls in my gaming group, second to one girl who played with a frilly white unicorn deck. Screw that, I had demons and other hell beasts in my deck! I'll take the poison over the prancing cute creatures any day.

It was always really weird going to comic stores for the tournaments. I was usally one of the only girls, if not the only girls. It can...get a little creepy. I ended up hanging around some of the guys in my group to keep the less than reputable players away from me!

Guilty. I started playing about five years ago now. I still only have one deck that, to my friends dismay, I've trimmed and worked into a deck some people just don't even want to play anymore. It's a B/W control deck centered around the Church of Orzhov.

I'm going to try to make a new deck since I've gotten so many cards from the new Mirrodin block.

I had played for a while, but I stopped playing a long time ago. I have played here and there, but usually with scrap decks from random cards. I still collect the cards now and again, though. I can't even remember my card's names I used. Maybe I should get back into playing, but if I do, what do you recommend for a returning player to start with after a long time?

To this day my friends fear my mono black rogue deck. It has sown death, destruction and general douchebaggery across the board. When the rule in a multi player game is to kill me first something is clearly working.

I would suggest waiting until the next core set comes out sometime this summer. It would be the perfect time to get back into the game.

My friends basically forced me to take apart my B/W control deck, because it was apparently no fun to play against.


I'm working on, right now, a myr deck, a wall deck, and, potentially, RUG infect. (RUG infect can win on turn 2 or 3 without using a single rare, it's wonderful)

I'm trying to become a more competitive player, and I try to make more events.

Yeah, your B/W control deck, if let run, became essentially invincible unless someone played All is Dust or something. Which didn't exist when you had it.

I'm working on making even better decks, don't worry Very Happy

I hashed together a blue turtle/beatdown deck that wins hard.

There is nothing quite like playing three sleeps, dropping Lorthos, and lockdowning for the win.



Thinking of bringing back a slightly modified version of my vampires to take on Caww-blades, but I don't need to worry about that too hard with the local metagame. I'm working on streamlining my Myr into a better tron/infinite deck, rather than a convoluted combo deck that sits around till turn 3 or so.


Damn, I love crazy builds.

So, one of the biggest changes to effect Standard just happened.

The banning of Jace, The Mind Sculptor and Stoneforge Mystic.

What is everyone's thoughs?

I was thrilled when I saw that, as I feel that it makes for a far less homogenous pile of decks at tournaments.

Right before the bannings, 70% of all tournament decks either were caww blades or ran 4 jaces and mystics.

That, to me, is worse than Jund's height.
