Drafting tips for newcomers to drafting

Ahead of this weekend’s release of Modern Masters 2017, I’ve been asked to write an explanatory article of what drafting is and how to navigate the draft portion itself. This won’t help you master the new format – I’ve still not a clue how that’s going to shape up – but will aim to at least clue you in on what it’s all about. Get ready to open your first pack… Continue reading “Drafting tips for newcomers to drafting”

Vampiric Aggro in Aether Revolt Standard Part 3 – The deck is faster than this article

Alright folks, let’s do this. Today, to finish up, we’ll look at the sideboard, key deck strategies, potential changes to the deck, and SWOT – that’s Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats. The fat has been trimmed, the conversational tone has been put on the backburner, and the card images are greatly reduced in number. Ragavan, Legendary Monkey will not be in attendence.

Beginning of February, new things started to happen. The CODa virus mutated into CODb and became untreatable, we received a new character, the Quarantine Specialist, Quarantine markers, new action cards, letting us place the Quarantine markers, and relationship stickers.

Tim decided to be the Quarantine Specialist for February, its special skill was to place a Quarantine marker anywhere in the world as one action. Myself, Jim and Dan, stuck with our same characters from last month, the Medic, Research and Dispatcher respectively. Continue reading “Pandemic Legacy Feb – Early Mar”


How to Play: A Judge’s Story

When Alberto asked me to write articles for this blog, I accepted without thought; writing about things that I enjoy is an idea I’ve always found cool and I’ve never really had an opportunity to do it.

We approached what we believed to be a small detail of people, which was the only piece of information that was correct. Thre were two scout troopers with two speeder bikes,  on a much more thorough check of the area, the positions we thought were further off, were much closer and there was no way to take out any one position without alerting the others.
