The more I play Magic the more I get sucked into it. I’ve got five mono decks at the moment along with a few others, which are from Return to Ravnica. For the black deck I am thinking vampires. Vampires are cool and what’s better than a vampire lifelink themed deck? Oh, yeah 🙂 Here’s what I am running (well more or less until I get all the cards) Vampire Lifelink 4 x Bloodhunter Bat 4 x Tormented Soul 4 x Vampire Nighthawk 4 x Daggerdrome Imp 2 x Markov Patrician 4 x Disentomb 2 x Duress 4 x Murder 4 x Victim of the Night 2 x Doom Blade 2 x Crippling Blight 2 x Deviant Glee 2 x Stab Wound 4 x Dead Weight 2 x Fallen Ideal 2 x Mark of the Vampire 24 x Land 18 x Creatures 15 x Spells 13 x Enchantments How it works The Tormented Souls are the little work horses of the deck. They just keep attacking, and because they are unblockable they just keep chipping away at the opponent’s life. For 1 black mana these guys are ace. The Vampire Nighthawk, Daggerdrome Imp and Markov Patrician all have lifelink and are all flying. The Nighthawk is the real only beefy one, but that’s not too much of a problem
A few months ago I was buying some M13 boosters in my local hobby shop and after opening them I had 4 Pillarfield Ox cards.
I’ve been tweaking and fiddling my decks lately, and found my blue one is really lacking. Unlike the others, which are brute force, blue seems to be all about sneaky tactics and trickery etc. This is right up my street. I am still new to Magic, so I do not know much about themed decks, but one I do know is a mill deck. I've been on
I’ve recently got into Magic the Gathering, a few weeks ago in fact. As you know, I was looking to get into Fantasy, but it didn’t fit with me. I see Fantasy as old english Red Coats pushing things around a board in their war room, they would be smoking cigars, drinking whiskey and eating cucumber sandwiches. I am not like that, I don’t like old fashioned stuff. I am more into 40k, which is tanks and pew pew lasor beamz. Plus, 40k is far, far cooler! Anyway, Magic. The uber rocker tree hugger geek, Metallicarule, introduce me to Magic. At first I took enjoyment mocking him in his uber geekyness of collecting silly expensive cards. Well, that turned out to be double standards didn’t it! Two weeks later I’ve got a deck builder toolkit (well two actually, John (Metallicarule) actually gave me 280 cards, almost equal to a toolkit; his love for me knows no bounds), three Return to Ravnica sets and a recently purchased booster pack. Got around 800 cards in total.
This weekend I had the …opportunity to play Malifaux for the first time.
Just a quick observation today: the psychic powers deck that is being sold alongside the main 6th edition rulebook has 35 large format cards contained within it. However, it is readily clear from the retail image that the deck is only just over half full.
This Sunday the topic is dice! How many times has it happened to you that you create a brilliant plan in a game, build up a great army, have the best cards for the situation in your hand and then Boom! That bad roll shatters everything. All the effort and strategy that you put into your plans are thwarted by that one roll of the die. And then, if you are like me, after that first roll, you just keep rolling bad until you lose everything in the game. Those pesky dice! Dice, dice and dice! There are games that use dice and diceless games. The diceless games are pretty interesting. They always use some kind of mechanic to replace the dice. Mostly they are some kind of cards. Games like Starcraft , Runewars and Malifaux use cards for combat resolution.
Two new base themes are here. City Street and Wooden Deck. Earlier there was discussion about a new theme coming out soon called Curbside. We have renamed this to City Street so they are now one and the same. The name change was made to make that base series more searchable. City Street bases are […]
