Three Reasons I’m Bad At Magic (Featuring The Return Of TCD!)

I had a minor epiphany – I’m not good at Magic.

Acceptable player, less exciting deckbuilder, and all around just plain OK.  At first, this gave me a lot of pause, since I have spent a fair amount of time writing about the hows and whys of directing an Elder Dragon’s army. But then I realized…whatever. My soap box is awesome.

Three Cards Deep: The Good, The Bad, and the EDH Ugly

Hate cards and hosers. They tend to have a pretty small place in EDH because tuning for a meta is less common, and you have to have answers that are viable in a range of games against a wider range of cards than in other formats. But I love ’em. Let’s talk hate!

Three Cards Deep: The Good, The Bad, and the EDH Ugly

After a long-ish break (ok just one week but it felt long) we’re back for the last Three Cards Dep of the season. I might take a week off and post something else I’ve got written while I let next season perc-you-late. It’s gonna be a doozy. This week, green tutory value engines!

Three Cards Deep: The Good, The Bad, and the EDH Ugly

Just pretend it’s season one. (Oh yeah, and we’re hitting up Monday this week because important editorials on theories that are nice but wrong and problematic combined with technical difficulties to make Friday not an option.

Three Cards Deep: The Good, The Bad, and the EDH Ugly

Three things happened to make me want to talk about Captain Sisay tonight. First, she did pretty well in the GDC March Madness Tournament. Second, a certain Jud/Doug/GUDoug badmouthed tutors during a conversation on Twitter (I basically agree with him btw). Third, I was toying with a number of different builds involving the Captain. So here we go. Let’s Rad Bad Sad.
