I see constant MTG reference in threads you post in. Safe to assume you still play?

What good is dreaming it if you don't actually do it?.

Yes. I play in about 2-3 tournements a week, and the last 5 months I've been having a (as yet unsuccessful) campaign to get on the Pro Tour/get pro points.

When I was 12 or so I often went to the Calfornia Beach Boardwalk in my home town of Santa Cruz, but I havent been to one sense.

I consiter myself an okay player, at least locally. I can always get better, but I'm usually in one of the top five most skilled people in any local tournement I enter in.

I like red and white. Very rarely do I play a deck that is neither of those 2 colours.
The formats I like to play most are draft, sealed, Type 2, Extended, Elder Dragon Highlander and Pack wars.

Pack wars are kinda like sealed deck but with only one pack.
You take your pack, open it, and shuffle in 3 of each basic land without looking at any of the cards.
Then you play a 2 out of 3 match with it. It's a cute, fun little limited format to play when you only have a few packs liying around. It's great when you are opening tournement winnings and have a little extra time with your freinds.   ;)

I don't play blue too much because I'm sick of it and it's not really my style. I like drawing cards but that's about it. I also am tired of it consitantly being the most powerful colour... but WOTC has tried to nerf it in the past and failed terribly. ARRRGH!  >:(

Well.... The thing is that no matter what they do they end up doing something else that has the opposet effect and is twice as powerful. Yes, they took away counterspell. But that was like 4 years ago. In the meantime they have created a deck called "fearies" that is almost universally blue and does things like make 1/1 flying, flash (-can be cast anytime you could play an instant)  creatures that counter spells and and a two mana enchantment that creates 1/1 flyers every turn. Before that, they had a deck called "teachings" that utilized intstant speed search and "Tefri, Mage of Zelfir" (- 2UUU, 3/4, flash, all your creatures in your hand and libarary have flash, other players cannot play spells when they can't play sorceries) and counter magic to lock your opponent out of the game. Before that their was a deck called "Blue Tron" that created tons of mana with Urza's Mine, Tower and Power Plant to generate tons of mana and steel everything you get into play, also about the same time was MUC witch had tons of counters, stealing and a 2/4 flying legend that created an army of flying tokens... and the list goes on... :(

combo actually is not that popular right now. It WOTC has been very careful lately. But Fae (counterspell) decks have been the best deck for the last 2 years. Blue is not dead my freind. Not by a long shot.  :'(

Yay blue!

I agree about blue being strong but I don't think Faeries really feels like a blue deck.  Well it's not a straight-up control deck anyway.  Those seem rare nowadays anyway, which is kind of cool.  It's not like there are 3 well-defined play styles that everyone plays anymore.  It's always a blend of different strategies, which makes for a more interesting game i...think?  But I don't play competitively, I just read forum threads about it and have a friend who does pretty well...I could be way off here

truthfully though, faeries seemed to build itself sorta.  It's just got a few faeries which are obviously the best ones, then throw in Bitterblossom and go.  Never played it, but it doesn't seem like the most poetic deck in the world...I used to be very anti-aggro but lately I respect a nice red beats deck...there's more careful design and playtime decision-making in them than it seems at first glance.  now Tron...some forms of tron I've seen are very nice decks imo.  Beautiful, carefully designed, and tough as shit to play.  (sorry I keep editing this) The one I saw only ran like 3 threats though and didn't steal anything.  It blew up the world every few turns if needed though, and took extra turns.  ;D good fun in my book!

what did you do in the military sir?
Do you think MTG players are assholes?

Do you wear odd socks? Frequently.

Have you traveled to other countries? yes. well sort of. canada.  :'(

do you think time travel will become possible? Not sure. In What The **** Do We Know, they showed that the field of physics is changing at an alarming rate and what was taken for granted is being questioned in the last few years. Hard to tell what could be possible in 100 years. It won't be affordable, however.  ::)

when socks retire do the go to the old socks home? The landfill, I think.

What's your favorite book/serie? Tough one! I think I like the Kushiel's Legacy series, becuase they are really sexy and heartfelt, but it changes. I tend to like what I'm reading!  :)

Did you agree with my assessment, or not? Mostly. But I am a Timmy Spike and if I play control, it's almost always becuase I want to smash with ginormas unstoppable creatures or game breaking uber-sorceries.  :) The thing I dislike most about Fae is the fact that Wotc seemingly just put all the most powerful cards in one tribe. That kind of liner design kind of torpedos creativity IMO. Now a question for you, how do you like my new "reply colour"? [/b]
