Got an idea for content or some other comment? Post it on my wall!
I stream Magic: the Gathering at http://www.twitch.tv/krazycaley
I create written and other content for Tappedout and I like to coordinate and help others to do the same. I am a fairly old-school Magic veteran who's been playing since Revised hit the scene, with a few breaks now and then (Basically I missed anything involving the Weatherlight). I love janky decks with bizarre and unusual win conditions, and I love playing control; I am blue through and through. My long history in the game has left me with a huge duffel bag full of four or five dozen decks. I don't play competitively very often, but when I do, it's standard and limited.
I'm on Magic Online as IdealistCynic, which is also my Xbox Live gamertag, and I do have Duels of the Planeswalkers, all versions, and would be happy to hit you up on Live or on Steam. (I even have Duels of the Planeswalkers, the old PC game that no one remembers).
Also, the top 10 best counterspell flavor texts:
10- "With one commanding word, the spell was put down and a fine collected for its casting."-Overrule, Dissension
9- "My ruling is final. Order is upheld. Justice is done."-Fall of the Gavel, Return to Ravnica
8- "Your attack has been rendered harmless. It is, however, quite pretty."-Counterspell, Mercadian Masques
7- "Someday, someone will best me. But it won't be today, and it won't be you."-Last Word, Darksteel
6- "Well, at least all of that arm-waving and arcane babbling you did was impressive."-Remand, Ravnica
5- "The first time was amusing, but now you're getting tiresome."-Laquatus' Disdain, Judgment
4- "The pyromancer summoned up her mightiest onslaught of fire and rage. Jace feigned interest." -Counterspell, Jace v. Chandra
3- "Pathetic. Let me show you how it's done." -Counterlash, Dark Ascension
2- "Amateurish. Nearsighted. A waste of my time and everyone else's."-Punish Ignorance, Shards of Alara
1- None. It just says "Counter target spell." It's beautiful. -Counterspell, 4th Edition

For some reason, I'm having trouble embedding a video. Whenever I put the video ID in it comes up saying the video is unavailable. This video ID is different from others I've seen, though. Not sure what the issue is.
Out of curiosity, what format do you use for embedding videos? I'm curious if there's a more efficient way.
I'll add in this deck.
The 4x card is Codex Shredder , whose use for control decks is as a slower Nephalia Drownyard replacement (just sits there, wins standoffs slowly) that ALSO provides recursion. I'm a big fan of control spell recursion for control decks, and being able to do it at instant speed is fantastic. In this deck, which is a mill deck, Shredder also contributes toward the overall milling goal.
Nice, iBryguy. Our "who goes first" method for dice rolling is as follows:
For 1v1, roll a d20 each. Highest wins, reroll ties. However, the "Spy Rule" is in effect, meaning 1s beat 20s. #stratego
For 2v2, each player rolls a d20, highest team total wins. Spy Rule is still in effect here, but 2 must beat 40.
Also, a House Rule I forgot to mention:
Caley is not allowed to use the Shahrazad deck.
