I am a Boros guy.


I'm not as active on this site as I was a few years ago because my personal and professional lives have gotten quite busy. I'm still very interested in Magic: The Gathering, even though I have less free time (though I don't approve of many of WotC's recent business decisions). I primarily play Limited, both booster draft and sealed (these also tend to be the only types of competitive events I play in). In addition, I do play some casual Commander along with spurts of Standard. I am still somewhat involved in Modern but seldom have time for it. Feel free to post here and I'll do what I can to trade, chat, deck tech, or whatever.

For reference, all of the decks I currently have physically constructed for any format, and am actively playing (or working on/constructing), will appear on my profile page. All other decks I have played and subsequently retired can be found by viewing my Deck Folders.

Other Stuff About Me

As a collector, I place an absolute premium on card condition (more on this on my binder page). I almost always refuse to own or play cards that are in less than Near Mint/Mint condition. Please bear this in mind when trading or selling with me.

As a member of the T/O community, I like to browse deck lists to expand my knowledge of the game. Often, I won't feel qualified to offer advice on a list (usually due to a lack of familiarity with the format or deck archetype), but I will upvote and comment on it if I think it's cool. I do my best to avoid negativity and conflict on the site's forums. However, I occasionally participate in a wide range of discussions.

Feel free to stop by, even if it's just to say hello.

@ Funkymonks:

Thanks for the comment! Your build sounds cool. Maybe it’s time to include Forerunner of the Coalition in my build, in some number. How is your list working with Shock and Lightning Strike ? What specific matchups seem really good for you, and what are the hardest?

Glad my list gave you some ideas. I highly recommend mainboarding some hand disruption — since you have a more aggressive list, perhaps you should try running 3-4 Drill Bit . Let me know how that goes if you do it. Cheers!

Kodama's Reach in addition to Cultivate , or just one or the other? Thanks for posting, this is a great resource.
