Things are gonna have to change around here

by on May.07, 2011, under Magic: The Gathering

When I began this blog, I said to myself that this will be the start of something big. That this will usher in a new era of blogging for me. More about magic, none about my drama. Unfortunately, my drama got the better of me. That is not to say that I won’t blog about magic anymore. Just that I need an avenue to let off some steam. Maybe not here. I wish I could. Not to mention that I love swyping. Hehe. Anyway, I’m off to make my brand spanking new miller deck. I hope I can find all the components I need and soon.

Johnny at heart, Miller by passion.

Building a mill deck, for me has always been like my quest for the holy grail. You know it’s there, but it takes too damn long and too damn hard. There are a lot of things to consider and not many options.

My ultimate goal is to make a swiss knife of mill decks, able to survive against beat downs, weenies, controls, aggro’s. But I realized that there’s just no such thing as an all in one deck. Just as magic is dynamic, that no one color is superior than the other, there is no deck that is clearly superior than the rest. Of course there are tournament champions, but only because it’s the right deck for the existing meta game. Simply put, I haven’t given up on my mill deck yet. I just have to learn how to side board properly.

The way things are going, I may just do a pure black mill. The upcoming cards in new phyrexia are the key. Mindcrank and bloodchief ascension can mill out your opponent’s entire library as soon as bloodchief ascension has enough counters. A problem that is easily remedied by way of proliferation.

I’ve always been a johnny at heart, and a miller by passion and it’s only now that my dream deck MIGHT become a reality.

Changes

by on May.03, 2011, under Life Blog

I wanted this blog to new about magic. I thought I could pull it off, y’ know. I saw life in terms of the 5 colors of magic. I know for a fact I live my life in hues of black and blue. then someone came along and showed me what it meant to live. To become more than just a magic player. She showed me true magic. I found bliss and passion and beauty. Then, like the fool that I am, I let her go. Now each day I live is an attempt to get her back in my life. I hate myself for letting her go. Now I’m paying the price. I’ve never felt this much pain or loneliness before.
