Well, the weekend went pretty well.
First off: Two drafts later, Scars of Mirrodin is... well... kind of becoming a bit meh. Infect remain incredibly annoyingly powerful, and Blue is fairly crappy, and, well, I can't really think of many things I'd like to do with the set. I certainly liked my draft decks (Elves and RDW with some Control) but neither was extraordinary. Further, I see the same basic decks forming and dominating, which is rather lame but I suppose inevitable. Oh well. I've got more Scars cards, which leads to...
A playtest or twelve of the Kiln Fiend deck! It works, and fairly well, even without decent cards. No Surrokar Spellblades or Mana Leaks or other probably awesome additions, but it was fun to win with it on turn seven of its first game since adding Black. It was my mistake, though. Should've been turn five, but I miscalculated and only dealt nine Poison Counters with my first attack. Oh well. The deck has a long way to go, but it's definitely a blast, and definitely a keeper among my decks. I look forward to watching it mature and get refined.
Looking eagerly toward more Magic, and toward maybe getting some cash in the ol' account so I can keep up my habit (fingers crossed on New York TAP actually going through any time soon to get me my refund from college). As always, comments are appreciated, and may the Mana-Balance be with you.
