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

Hello KrazyCaley! I was interested in possibly writing some articles for tappedout.net, and was wondering what the procedure was for doing so? I asked in the forums and they said to talk to matsi, and when I went to matsi's profile, it said to ask you. So here I am.Also(maybe Im just dumb or unobservant(probably) but I cannot find a way to browse your articles section, all I can find is the 'Latest Articles' page. If I was to write for this site I would rather not double up on subjects or step on other writers toes by covering topics they arleady have. The only way I know how to do this would be to perouse the previously written articles on the site. Thanks for your time and consideration on this matter.Eric K.

How's it going KrazyCaley? I'm in a bit of a bind here. I'm building a Muzzio EDH deck and I'm having a bit of a problem figuring out what card draw spells I need to add to the deck and what cards I need to take out. Here's the list:
Feel free to give me some advice on what to put in. Thanks!

Also look for the word "play" on older cards - it means the same thing as "cast."

Putting a card on the battlefield using a spell like Stitch Together does not count as "casting" that card. "Casting" refers only to paying the casting cost of a spell to place it on the stack (almost always from your hand, although there are exceptions, like things with suspend and Yawgmoth's Will, etc.)
Therefore, you must cast Demigod from your hand (or with one of the weird exceptions - look for the word "cast") to trigger his ability. Necromancy effects do not work.

These cards don't really interact with each other, if that's the question, but I suspect it's more a deckbuilding advice question.

merrowMania is correct. Note that the practical application here is that things you put fate counters on with Triad of Fates will be protected from Oblivion Stone wrath, and things you put fate counters on with Oblivion Stone can be messed with by Triad of Fates' last two activated abilities.

Good card draw ideas for any blue EDH deck:
Rhystic Study (Cheap, annoying)
Ancestral Vision (Cheap)
Staff of Nin (Card per turn, also slight control aspect)
Jace Beleren (No one notices that you are getting card advantage if you give THEM a card every once in a while)
Jace's Ingenuity (Lots of cards, at instant speed)
Flow of Ideas (Absurdly good card draw in EDH).
