From the day that this became more of a card game blog, I have really only talked about Trading Card Games or competitive type games. I haven’t really talked that much about other types of card games like Deck Building or Living Card Games, even though I’ve played a few of those as well.
So I’m thinking about a new thing for the blog. Every week (if I can) I will try to show a new card game that I’ve played or tried or own. During this time of course I will have to actually get a few new ones and try them out. I think I have about five or six that that I could start with. Some of them are already well known and talked about on here, like Magic The Gathering, Pokémon and so on.
That wasn’t really what I wanted to talk about though, mainly I wanted to mention a Deck Building game that was recently released in English. With the awesome theme: Maids.
The game is: Tanto Cuore
One of many deckbuilding games from the company Arclight Games, they’ve designed several different awesome looking games in this genre. I do believe that this is the first one that they’ve decided to print in English and I really hope to see more of them in the future. I just love the Manga style of these games, and I bet several of my friends would enjoy sitting down looking at this game… and playing it.
A few example cards from the game. (Source: Board Game Geek . com )
As soon as I get my hands on this, I will probably do a video and written review. I need to start making more videos in General don’t I? O_O
Until next time, …get yourself some maids?…
Hello everyone! It’s time for the very last 777 deck, and I must say it was the hardest one to make. I’ve been sitting around for hours to find some cool and interesting idea behind a deck, some has already been made and several just lack the ability to be in an EDH deck, after hours of looking around I read the Innistrad news again. Vampires, Werewolves and Zombies, such a great block. Vampires, I love them in MTG, so… yea I’m going to share a Vampire EDH deck with you. It’s all about the fun of EDH so enjoy the list!
Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief
Anowon, the Ruin Sage
Bloodlord of Vaasgoth
Butcher of Malakir
Gatekeeper of Malakir
Guul Draz Assassin
Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet
Magus of the Coffers
Mirri the Cursed
Pawn of Ulamog
That’s aloooot of creatures, there are Vampires missing from the list of course but I added enough of them don’t you think? Oh and I’m sorry, there is one little bugger that got past the Vampire detector. Magus of the Coffers is there to help with huge mana and X spells, that can win the game quickly.
There isn’t a lot to mention in the rest of the deck that feels so special, I’ve added a few vampire-ish cards like Sanguine Bond, Polluted Bonds and exsanguinate.
Feast of Blood
Sign In Blood
Beseech the Queen
Tendrils Of Corruption
Decree of Pain
Blade of the Bloodchief
Coat of Arms
Crypt of Agadeem
Well until a new deck is posted here on the blog, take care.
Before I went to bed, I thought I would look around for some rumors and new facts about Innistrad and wow! Does it sound awesome to be a horror fan, and a fan of black!
Let’s the following quotes shall we:

Not Innistrad related, but you’re welcome if you didn’t know.

OMG! OMG OMG! I’m sorry, but I’m having such a nerd orgasm right now, and first I thought that a lot of this would be mono black, but … this set is going to be insane trust me. I will love every color in this set. I love zombie movies, I love horror stories, books and movies and we get a set that focuses around three of the main creatures of which I love? I love you wizards, I do.

To my friend Johnny; I’m joining you and your red mono crusade Johnny! Red got vampires. Oh wait, Blue got Zombies as well? Oh so, I will have to get all the red cards for my vampires and all the blue cards for my new zombies. Check!
“Werewolves are a very very key part of this set, they’re red & green.” #mtgsdcc
Okay so I need to get Green to get some awesome Werewolf stuff. Check.
“YES she (Lillian) is in the set. Also, there are TWO planeswalkers in the set.” #mtgsdcc
Okay so I need to get black cause love black and Liliana.
One more thing. Dark Ascension. Control the Night. February 2012.
Yes, that is the name of the set after Innistrad. And there is… ARTWORK OF SORIN! This block… I will be playing a lot of magic in the next few months. ❤
“There ARE more than just vampires, werewolves, & zombies in horror. I gave you just a taste.” @maro254 #mtgsdcc
Until next time, dream of horrors!
Welcome to the very very very last 777 deck. It’s a sad day for all of us I know, I kind of wanted the theme of the deck to stay with the subject of “final”. Until today I’ve posted decks from different games that I’ve tested, tried, played, plays and so on. Right now I’m running out of games that I feel comfortable writing about.
I still have a few games that I could do decks on but it would be about as in-depth as the Legend Of The Five Rings deck. If you don’t remember that one… don’t look it up. It’s basically just a deck with me explaining the all-around theme.
A few examples of games that I could write about (most are out of print games):
Vampire The Eternal Struggle
Warhammer: Invasion (LCG)
Warhammer 40,000 Collectible Card Game
So I’m kind of at a lost here. I can think of a few decks with “the last” or “final” from different games. For example the Final Countdown deck from yu gi oh, but the decks have been done before. So where do I go from here? I will work on a deck from a game that I’ve already worked with, but the deck is from a format so different that it almost becomes a game of its own.
One EDH deck coming up, and will it be awesome? For you? Of course I’m going to make it awesome! So how many coo cards can we find with “Final” in its name? Non. Well maybe one or two, but wow there wasn’t really much to build a deck around. Damn! Any cool cards with “Last”? Not that many. Non with seven, so this is hard…
You know what, I’ve been looking through plenty and plenty of cards now and I just haven’t found “it” yet. I’m going to postpone this till tomorrow. I’m going to put out an awesome deck by then!
Until next time, sorry for some of the delays.
Yes sir i did it! The “Pika Pika Friends” deck is finished. I’m not really sure what to say about it, I tried to make it soooomewheat competitive while still adding stuff that I just love. Yanmega Prime, is card that I’ve been wanting to build a deck with since I first saw him, but he is one of the most popular cards in the format right now making him kind of expensive.
Raichu is one of my favorite Pokémon, not competitive but cute and cuddly and does 100 damage to the face of an opponent!
You know, I’m not going to explain the idea of this deck, it’s a Pokémon deck with little strategy, get your Pokémon out and do the cheap and strong attacks to beat your opponent down.
4x Pokemon Comunication
4x Energy Search
4x Energy Retrieval
2x Pokemon Circulator
1x Rescue Energy
4x Double Collorless
8x Lightning Energy
Until next time, ZZZZZAAP!

I know you were ”all” expecting the new the 777 deck. The Pokémon one to be exact, but I was out so long yesterday that I just didn’t have the time when I got back home. I’m working on it though and it will be coming so don’t worry about it! Really, I promise!
Anyway, today I’m going to play my mono red deck that I posted like a week ago, it’s all about that quick win and the late game plan doesn’t exist. I hope to do okay with it and in the honor of my girl I hope that I will get myself that John Avon FNM Cultivate. I want it so, so, so, so, so, so much!
Just look at it;
Until next time, take care!
Should I open up a webshop? Something simple with plenty and plenty of products so that I at least can live and knowing that I’m doing something that I want to do?
Sadly the store wouldn’t be called Nurgle’s Place because of Games Workshops copyright on that name “Nurgle”. Maybe I could contact them about it and see what they say. Probably a big fat no or no answer at all. I know where to find the distributors, I know how to handle a web shop, I have contacts that can design an awesome website, I live on the edge when it comes to how much money I have every month as it is, and I would get financial help the first three months.
Maybe I should try it, maybe I should. The ones of you that know me out there in the real life are probably asking: Weren’t you going to open a store in Gothenburg. I was, but I backed out from it. Why? There are already 4-5 stores/hobby shops that sell the products we were going to sell. There is still only one here though that has their store open to gamers to use their gaming tables and so on. But it felt full, and the money aspect of opening up a physical store was just scary.
So new plan, new idea, and this time a simple one that won’t cost me a fortune, what do you think? Webshop? Yes? No?
What else is happening today. A new 777 deck will be posted later today, actually a lot later because I’m going out to hang with some friends, post some cards and doing some videos for this blog. I also need to put up the next weeks auctions this evening to get some more cards sold. You know what, if I do open up a webshop my auctions could be like a commercial thing for that, putting up some info with the auctions and a link.
Oh well, until next time, take care and remember to smile!
