Magic The Gathering Tattoo (awesome)

Hello my Nurglings!

In a short moment I’m leaving for my local gaming store to play some EDH (or some other game if that fits me well). Just mailed my contact at the “start my own business” course that I was taking. As it seems now, I will not be getting any financial help in the first 6 months, which means, no business at all. May end up doing a small buy cards section on this blog, but that will be later on.

As it is now though I should probably do it, seeing as I have soooo many cards around me that I should try and get rid of. Aaaaanyway.

Right now I just wanted to show you one awesome tattoo. You’re a true ma….woman if you do something like this permanently on your body.

Until next time, take care.
Cya soon!

Hello I’m back! :D

Hello my Nurglings!

I know it’s been awhile since I posted on here and you know, I blame it all on life. Even if most may say that I don’t have one, that’s not the case. Sometimes it just hits you in the face and you get a little bit of setback when it comes to things like, blogs, and keeping yourself updated, and having the energy to do things.

BUT! Here I am again. And something that really pushed me to write this is one of my latest comments. Thank you Danny for this awesome message.

Comment quote: Danny.

I got an update too! I’ve been running this deck as is, unmodded, for the past three or four tournaments I’ve been going good and it’s held it’s own again the top players in our group.

Being one of the least experienced in the group I tended to get slaughtered but I’m actually giving people a run for their money now, even against our reining champion. My friend officially hates the deck because it’s such a good competitor against their werewolf deck. Both times we’ve gone up against each other they have been some of the most intense games I’ve ever played.

Just like everyone else though I feel the midgame is a little weak. If I’m slow to get the counters going I’m done for generally. I’m considering adding Bloodline Keepers in as well whether 4-2 I’m not sure.

However I HAVE to share what happened last tournament. I got a little ol’ Strom Kirk Noble up to a 13/13! I was getting 3 1/1 counters per turn it was beautiful.
Also I can report that even against a supposedly “better” r/b vamp aggro deck this one owns. My opponent was just a weeee bit pissed that a cheaper deck beat his beefier midgame deck.

The deck he is talking about is right here for all of you to read up on: https://nurgleprobe.wordpress.com/2011/09/16/innistrad-on-standard-aggro-vampires/
Thanks Danny, and hello my Nurglings, I’m back for now. 😉

Until next time, take care.
Cya soon!

Nurgle Standard Brew – Evil Township Deck (WW kinda)

Hello my Nurglings!

Time to go back and look at a deck that I posted a short while ago, the deck that I then called: WW Token Enchantress. Was it a good name? No, maybe not but it was the best I could come up with on a short notice. The deck has now actually been played during an FNM, with a few changes though. (We had to build it in 10 minutes before the tournament started and a few weird changes had to be made).

I was lucky enough to see a complete game with the deck, and as a bystander I could see the issues and what I needed to change. The deck played Mirran Crusader in this hasty version, which was not in the old list (a good add though it wrecks with one or two Honor Of The Pure on the field).

I also noticed that Mesa Enchantress, even though I love her and want to see her in a deck, is not a good enough card. You want to play the enchantments as quick as possible, and that was slowed down by having an enchantress in your hand. The reason; you want to draw that extra card so you have to play Enchantress first. Conclusion: Mesa Enchantress is being scrapped.

Oh my lord there are being so many changes made to this deck, mainly the creature line up. Let’s take a look at it.

Creatures:
4x Doomed Traveler
4x Mirran Crusader
4x Geist-Honored Monk
2x Hero Of Bladehold

So already we’re seeing a big difference from the old list. Mirran Crusader is added because he was just too awesome to resist, the spot was originally planned to held by Mausoleum Guard so if you’re not feeling like playing Crusaders that’s another sweet pick. Leonin Arbiter is also taken out for a more solid pick in Hero Of Bladehold, you cannot deny her awesomeness.

Quickly moving on:

Enchantments: 8
4x Honor Of The Pure
4x Intangible Virtue

Other Spells: 14
4x Timley Reinforcment
4x Midnight Haunting
4x Altar’s Reap
2x Elspeth Tirel

So now you see why the deck is “evil”, I play four Altar’s Reap to reap the benefits of plenty of token creatures. The deck was originally created to be cheap to play, Elspeth Tirel was actually Doom Blades up till the second I posted the deck here. But obviously she is better for the deck, and doom blades can be in the side board if needed. Or Elspeth can be replaced by Doom Blade if you want to play a cheaper version. Elspeth is a though card though, it was either her or two other cards that that I would love to play in the deck, look below to see which cards I was thinking about.

And the lands:

Land: 24
2x Ghost Quarter
4x Swamp
4x Isolated Chapel
14x Plains

Well that’s it for this time, another take on a WW type of deck, with a higher mana curve than usual. But I hope you like this brew of a deck and please comment if you try it out or have any changes or ideas for it. (Like adding space for those Swords!)

Until next time, take care.
Cya soon!

Forbidden Empire Deck – Changes will be made

Hello my Nurglings!

I recently posted a deck called Forbidden Empires, working with the three empire artifacts to create a win. I’ve recently made some changes to deck, realizing that it will be better for the deck and the format. So here we go!What’s being cut? I realized that I only played 4 white cards in the deck, this actually created an odd situation when I wanted to use black mana as well so that I can use the flashback on Forbidden Alchemy. So I cut Day Of Judgment completely, replacing it with:

So the list now looks like this with it’s new mana base. Why the isolated chapel you ask? Well it’s there for more options to your sideboard (mainly artifact/enchantment removal), not sure if that’s needed yet but we’ll see. If you don’t need it, use 4 Ghost Quarter instead. Yes the Kessig Wolf Run is a deck.

Creature: 3
3x Snapcaster Mage

Artifact: 9
3x Throne of Empires
3x Scepter of Empires
3x Crown of Empires

Other spells: 24
4x Dissipate
4x Mana Leak
4x Forbidden Alchemy
4x Think Twice
4x Ponder
4x Black Sun’s Zenith

Land: 24
2x Buried Ruin
4x Drowned Catacomb
4x Darkslick Shores
4x Isolated Chapel
10x Island

(Original deck here: https://nurgleprobe.wordpress.com/2011/10/16/nurgle-standard-brew-forbidden-empire-deck/ )

Until next time, take care!

Now it’s up to you to vote for the card that you think will be played the most, it’s all for fun of course!

Until next time, take care.

Poll of the Day – Do you play another type of “collecting” game?

Hello my Nurglings!

If you read my post the other day, I mentioned that I’m looking for a new miniatures game to play, me and a friend is (as it seems) going to try Malifaux a miniatures game where you use cards as randomizer instead of dice (sounds awesome for us card games players).

So the question for today: do you play any other type of “collecting” game, like miniatures games or a LCG?

Thanks for answering!
Until next time, take care.
Cya soon!
