I haven't been keeping up on the tournament reports as much lately, but the deck continues to function well. Every time I try something different I just end up missing how powerful my spells feel in UW.

It's really nice to see the every-other week Modern FNM is now constantly drawing more folks than Standard. This is likely due to the upcoming Modern season and the perceived stagnation in Standard. I decided to play Bogle tonight instead of UR because I planned to play it the ...

Had a really nice turn out for modern tonight, bumping us to 5 rounds.

Match 1 - Jund Pod 2-1

This was an interesting Birthing Pod list. It ran more aggressive creatures like Falkenrath Aristocrat and Strangleroot Geist. I lost game one, but was able to grind it out over the ...

Yay, modern. I'm actually glad my LGS has switched to doing modern every other Friday. I still enjoy standard, but modern is a lot of fun due to the variety of decks and gut wrenching sideboards.

Speaking of gut wrenching, tonight was my first night running bogle and the ...
