Got an idea for content or some other comment? Post it on my wall!
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

Thank you for the crash course.
I will proceed to the challenge tomorrow.
I don't have access to the Article editor though, is that something that would be made accessible to me once I have typed up the article, or is there some other process to go through?
Thank you for your help.
I am currently in the process of starting up a Guild Deck Challenge, and I was interested in perhaps being able to post it as articles (at least for the type ups of the matches). I am also currently asking the community for help on the rules and settings of the tournament.
Do you think something like that would be possible, in favour of posting it on the forums, which tend to get swamped away?
Also any of your insights on the format/tournament/execution of the whole ordeal, would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you in advance.
ok i understand it is gong to be mostly randlomly assigned... but since you are doing some at least by assignment possibly for eu and etc... would it be possible for me to grab just 1 person for my team? SupremeAlliesCommander would be my choice and he wants to be on my team too! 1 person can't be all the unbalancing right? right???
Thanks for the quick response! I might hold off on 2 per week, just so I can take notice on how long it takes the popularity of the article to drop off. I plan to only have one up on the homepage, so I'll try to maximize my schedule with that in mind.
How things are going for you ? I just wanted to know if the Apprentice's Workshop's list is still up to date ? From what you said in your Episode 14, there should be: GureiSeion, Cobthecobbler, wreckedd then it will be me with Death by numbers on Episode 22.
Until then, do you have 2 minutes to look at my last deck. I am trying to make a competitive deck out of two uncompetitive mechanism; milling and cipher. I feel like it's not possible, but I am that way. "Near-impossible-to-build-decks" attracts me like a magnet. Well I'm having a lot of fun making tests after tests with this concept and when it wins, it is like crazy, but it lack consistency and it have to many hard counters. Anyway, almost everything is write on the page so if you have 2 minutes. Please let me know what you think. Else, I will just wait for my turn at your Apprentice's Workshop. (U-mill-iating - Cipher version)
Until then, thank you for those great articles that I often read and take care : )
Quick question. The BFYB series seems to be grabbing a good amount of attention, and I'm going to try to start writing two articles per week. One will go up on Monday and another on Thursday. With a couple people helping me with the articles, I think two will be manageable.
First, is this good spacing?
Second (sorry, two questions I guess), should I leave both up at a time and replace the Monday article with the next Monday article, or should I replace the Monday article with the Tuesday article? Hope that makes sense... By "replace" I mean remove from the home page. Thanks!
