To celebrate the holiday season, I’m decorating trees and stomp face with big beatsticks. Might contain Teeth and/or Nails…
A black and white storm build that wants to win with a storm of extort.
Why would anyone do that? Kazandu Nectarpot is obviously green! There is no reason why one could ever call it black. Unless… Kazandu Nectarpot was one of the cards that interested me a lot when opening my Zendikar Rising Bundle. The card itself is not that special – gaining a life when a land comesContinue reading “Blaming the Nectarpot he’s black”
The card selected for this week’s entry seems pretty innocuous. Maybe even… bad. Sure, it returns a creature or a land from graveyard to your hand for a colourless and a black. It’s even a sorcery. Kind of “Mweh”. Why bother playing this card? But wait? It doesn’t say “Choose one”, but “Choose one orContinue reading “Break the cycle”
Zendikar Rising has been released and I wanted to get to know the set.

Or the classic Survival of the Fittest/Recurring Nightmare combo. Once you’ve seen the synergy of those cards, you cannot unsee it. Not all cards have that. InContinue reading “Soldiers assemble!”
The white-blue color combination is not really known for its aggressive capabilities, as aptly embodied by the Azorius guild. White and blue in combination are very good at controlling the game, to react to threats played by the opponent or opponents and they have done so with great success during the existence of the game.Continue reading “Passive Aggressive”
