Tournament report: FDB Duel for Duals tournament

Duel for Duals @ FDB in Gatineau The prize pool included one of each revised dual, and it was a pretty fun event to attend. Fortunately, this one went a bit better for me than the last event, and I had a few unfamiliar and interesting matches. If you read my previous tournament report, you’ll note that I considered playing a main deck over a . I decided I wasn’t yet ready to commit to it, and...

Competitive on a Budget: A Guide to Red Deck Wins in Every Format

  Anyone who is friends with me and plays Magic knows that that I consider myself an aggro specialist and a red deck expert. There has to be a very good reason for me to not be playing red in any given format. My most recent non-red deck was the result of trying to force in Mono Black Aggro during Born of the Gods standard. Alas, the card was not the functional reprint of that some people...

Untapped Potential

Building new decks is my favourite part of magic.

Tournament Report with UWr Miracles

This past weekend I found the time to get out to Gatineau to hopefully pick up a couple byes for the upcoming GP in New Jersey, something on many players’ minds right now. If you’ve ever played magic against me in any format, it should be no surprise that the deck I brought to the table was the staple control deck of the format, UWr Miracles. After some testing throughout the week I had made...

Heroic Time Walk - by Benoit Renaud

What is Heroic ? This deck tries to win by abusing the interaction between and in order to generate enough +1/+1 counters to take multiple turns in a row. Although it’s theoretically possible to go off on turn 3 it’s highly unlikely. It usually gets going by turn 4 or 5. Unlike the combo deck, this can't go on indefinitely. However, having only 2 colours instead of 4 makes it much easier to...

Of particular interest is Benoit's latest Heroic-based deck And for those of you wondering what Canadian Icon Phil Samms is slinging - - A slightly more control-ish version than has been the norm.
