So after taking a full 9 day lab segment off of writing, (I know I didn’t write after I said I was going to, my bad.) I can confidently say that I missed it. Although I am very busy these days, I still find that there are many instances in which I am doing “nothing.” Now while I know that resting both your body and mind are important, I don’t necessarily think that you can’t also be productive during this resting time. While my brain constantly tells me to write, I don’t always act on those thoughts. Writing is not only good for the brain but it is also a great stress reliever, and so I will hopefully write some more in the immediate future. What I have been working on a lot recently however, has been the upcoming SCG open in Charlotte this weekend, (It’s a big magic tournament.) Since it is what is currently on my mind, I figured I’d write a little about it. For those not interested in the Magic talk, just click here, for everyone else, I hope you enjoy!
So this upcoming weekend I plan on potentially playing both the main event on Saturday, and the main event on Sunday. Although these both pose different challenges, I will be choosing to focus this article on the standard event Saturday. Standard is a format in which all of the cards from the most current sets are legal, you bring a deck from home containing at least 60 of those cards, and then give it your best shot. I will be playing a home brew at the tournament, meaning that I have come up with this deck almost completely on my own, without the help of an online article or template. With that comes both pros and cons: I can’t be sure that my deck is all that great, but my opponents will have no idea what is coming at them from across the table.
I am going to be playing the classic “Bant” color combination of green, blue, and white. This will hopefully provide the perfect combination of early plays that stifle my opponents, with a late game so menacing, that all opponents can do is shake my hand in conceit. I hope it works, and if it does I may or may not have a vacation idea or two floating around in my noggin’. Well that’s about all I can give away right now, less than a week before the tournament, but be assured that I will tell more as the days begin to pass.Filed under Editorial, Welcome | Comment (1)
