Got an idea for content or some other comment? Post it on my wall!
I stream Magic: the Gathering and other games nightly from 7pm-Midnight Pacific 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

A lot of the match leaders just aren't responding to my e-mails for some reason.
Might be able to reach him on his twitch stream
So is anyone in contact with Caley? TO says he's been offline for two months now...
@smash10101 - It's a good question. The main reason is, red complicates the mana base and I wanted to actually build this deck (which I did, and play it only against people who invoke my wrath). However, anti-City in a Bottle is a troubling consideration indeed. Might be worth it.
