I played a little Magic around 99' (I remember sketching Bear Cub for a grade 7 art project) and then came back to the wonderful world of MTG January, 2018.

A local playgroup soon developed and we naturally moved into EDH, with appreciation for the ease of entry for singleton, and the depth of engagement plus the creative aspects of the format.

I'm a systems thinker and, learning to apply that framework to this world is tons of fun! I currently find myself attracted to exploring the combination of flavour and function. I naturally tend to build for heavy synergy as that's how I think. Just going "function" seems to lead to the same ol' cards everyone else is playing, but flavour gives a nice creative challenge and character to the decks.

I love the experience of getting the ideas, making the assumptions on synergies and sequencing and then playing it out with the cards interacting with each other; seeing the deck come to life with everyone else's decks after it just existing in my head is one of my favourite experiences in magic!

Said on Goblin Artifacts...


DarthMeatloaf - Awesome! This is more what I was looking for, your response to DoomedGeneral and combinations of things you see playout.

The one I'm working on is Jund and I'm trying to come up with a variety of overlapping combos. I like the artifact-kiki/dross combo, way funner than going the obvious route in my mind.
