Magic The Gathering; Drafting, Ten Tips.
In the past 3 days i’ve had the lucky opportunity to visit 2 different comic / collector conventions. Which means there has been a whole lot of MTG play. Several times, friends, or people i’ve met along the way have sat down to play some draft. I’m no big drafter myself, but I can safely say after 5 or 6 drafts, I’ve come up with my top 10 tips for a sucessful draft. And...
I don't have much to say.
I’m going out tomorrow night. Then i’m off to london saturday. Plenty of MTG, anime and general nerdy tom foolery.
Understanding Magic, part 1; "It's not good, but...
The hardest part about teaching someone to play MTG or indeed learning yourself, is decidely what you consider to be a good card, and what you don’t. Trying to understand, the cost of the card, how good a cards effect is, what situation its good in, all these things are seriously difficult. Lets take the most simple of cards. Goblin piker! This guy is terrible. But, like the title...
Has anyone noticed lately...
That the MTG dragon cards, are becoming…generic… The artwork i’m talking about, not the cards themselves. I honestly couldn’t pick out a fury hellkite from a hellkite overlord. Shit…THE NAMES. EVEN THE DAMN NAMES. Get your shit together wizards. Goblins, at least those guys were different. Honestly, no goblin card looked the same as the next.
Giant Growth not returning in M12 →
mtgfan: GASP! Giant spider made the cut? Are you fucking kidding me? Jesus christ. Come on people, giant growth is practically a first pick when you open it in draft, its a bomb in limited and even sees standard play from time to time. I know personally when I open a giant spider, i’m not at all interested in it. Sure reach is interesting and can stop those pesky fliers but.. Gah. ...

ihititwithmyaxe: Listen up, those of you Magically inclined! A few of us are laying the groundwork for a large project, full of epic win. It’s something of a collaboration and a collective, a single, unified gathering place for MTG on Tumblr. Its functions are in the formative stages, and…
Home from work
Quickly stop to memorize your face, before i’m on and off again. This train ride may be long, but your freckles keep me sane.
I have a busy week ahead of me.
I’ve a week tomorrow to get this project finished. In between that time I have to; Receive mail tomorrow and get to the bank. Get my blood test results back. Work tomorrow night. Work wednesday night. Work friday night. Go out friday night. Go to london for the expo saturday. Go to my cousins birthday on sunday. Work monday. Ensure the project is finished and I have some pictures...
So the results won’t be through until tommorow. Thankyou for that lovely feeling in my stomach. Asshole doctors.
I get my results back today.
From the blood tests I had last week. Time to ring and find out…
I've been talking to my Nan a lot recently.
She lives in scotland, and its nice, we’ve never had what i’d call a particularly close relationship. But lately its been phonecalls every other day. Which is lovely. But, in typicaly Nan fashion, shes decided to “Help me out”. I’m expected to receive a letter in the post tomorrow containing £200-£250. I’m astounded. I gave her a telling off. It was...
Imagine theres no heaven. Its easy if you try. No hell below us. Above us only sky.
narcotic-vagina: I love how the majority of the people I follow, follow all the other people I follow and vice versa.
Kind of disappointed I can't afford my slivers...
London was my big chance to test it. And I was excited for it. I literally get paid a day after the London expo. Ah well.
Music tip of the day.

I won the auction for a Sliver Overlord.
Cost me 2 quid. Where as a normal one will set you back 7. Suck that.
So apparently dad was in bed when I left the house...
I always put the alarm on when I leave the house. You can imagine the reaction when he opens his bedroom door.
Today has actually, geniunely been productive. I went and got my blood test done, my damn arm maintains its irritated state. I went into town, purchased a dump load of stationary and equipment for my camera project. Then proceeded to spend 40 minutes in WHSmith picking books, ended up with The Fifth Elephant by Terry Pratchett, a copy of The Hobbit by Tolkien, and the black edition of Deathnote...
You’re not perfect. I know you’re not. You know you’re not. You may not make a mistake there. But you will somewhere else. You’ll see.
Anonymous asked: how so? you have top taste in music and you seem like a down to earth guy. it's nice to read what you have to write on here
You know who you are. Humans, are intricate creatures, capable of so much, and so little at the same time. Despite being the top of the food chain, they are by no means perfect. Emotions, and the way their mind works are humans biggest weakness, and they cause them to make mistakes. A human can say one thing, and do another. Its the ability to contradict, to lie, to make mistakes, to set them...

Magic The Gathering. Format Spotlight; Reverse...
Constructed, in MTG terms, means any format in which you create your deck prior to the event. As opposed to formats such as draft or limited, in which you create a deck from booster packs. Reverse constructed is one of the prevailing fan made formats in the game, which always ends with hilarious results. The reason it is called, reverse constructed, is because you are tasked with building the...

When you’re black in the eyes
Dad had been in 2 minutes.
To followers old and new.
100 things about me. My name is Adam. I’ll be 18 on the 3rd of July. I work at tradepoint, B&Q. Despite that, I love my job. I love the people I work with. I’ve been with the same girl for almost a year and a half. That isn’t going so great. I’m somewhat selfish. And incredibly arrogant. I’m not sure where I want to be in life. I have a younger...

Anonymous asked: your girlfriend sounds like a twat, why are you still with her?
fuckbastard replied to your post: Incoming, more MTG posts. Been meaning to get back into MTG for ages. Last played about 4 or 5 years ago. Any changes I should be made aware of? Theres no changes to the core game mechanics. However there are new key word abilities, more card types. Just general small changes that affect the metagame, as opposed to the game itself. Fan made formats are...
