Deck Tech & Video Report : Moxless Troll in Old School 95

Pushing further the exploitation of Nature's Lore already started in the 5c-aggro deck, I endeavored to push the card as far as I thought I could and added some more Sylvan Library, Demonic Consultation and even a Brainstorm. When two great cards have great synergy.. The result was quite lovely. As much as I'm inclined … Continue reading Deck Tech & Video Report : Moxless Troll in Old School 95

5 Color Aggro (Old School 95) : Video Report & Deck Tech

In the beginning I wanted to showcase Nature's Lore. The card really do seem great to me. I ended up swtiching them for the Moxes / Birds of Paradise I would normally play in an Aggro deck and never regretted it ! (I do put Moxes and BoPs both in the same category for aggro, … Continue reading 5 Color Aggro (Old School 95) : Video Report & Deck Tech

Fishliver Oil Cup : Finding Yourself in Genova

I finally found it. It's not far from one of the most beautiful place around. You have to want it. It's a bit of an improbable maze to reach it. You have to need it even. The isolation, the serenity. When I find it there are already three people there. The guy that reads his … Continue reading Fishliver Oil Cup : Finding Yourself in Genova

The sort-of broken Balance Deck in Original Type 2 reports

So as per the rules and emphasized in the format challenges, not only Balance isn't restricted in the format but it's also definitely not clear how to "break it". What I wrote was that I sort of knew how to do it. Here's what I meant by that. The elaboration of the deck took quite … Continue reading The sort-of broken Balance Deck in Original Type 2 reports

Aggro-Control in Old School: The Gwendo Reports

What the hell is aggro-control anyways ? If you think you know tell me, cause it's not like the internet seems to agree on any solid definition. In fact there's surprisingly little articles about it, for a macro-archetype. According to gamepedia : "An aggro-control deck's game plan is to play enough creatures to kill the … Continue reading Aggro-Control in Old School: The Gwendo Reports

Original Type II April online tournament report

Last time I had played with a non-competitive deck and the results showed, my standings in the league suffered, and I almost never played my flagship card, so as announced in the penultimate tourney report I indulge myself, which means : control-Millstone ! Like I told in my first post, ctrl-Millstone plays a special role in my … Continue reading Original Type II April online tournament report

Original Type II Feb-Mar Online tournament report

The format is growing and we have a quite nice number of 8 players showing up. Still, since the tournament is played online on webcams and people are on very different schedules and time zones it seems not very feasible to do swiss rounds, so we use the championship format, where everybody plays everybody. 7 … Continue reading Original Type II Feb-Mar Online tournament report

Vincent’s Reanimation (a tale of 3 tournaments)

Here are the words of Vincent Ruaut (though I tried to help with the English in so far as I could), who I alluded to mostly in my report about a tournament he played in -  His deck is the most exciting thing I've seen in the 93/94 format for a long while so I think it's well … Continue reading Vincent’s Reanimation (a tale of 3 tournaments)

Report : 93/94 Paris tournament at Magic-Bazar

I didn't have much expectations coming into that tourney and I managed to outdo those. I mostly play this format to get to play some old school in real life, since the old school formats I do prefer these days I basically can only play online. Most of my thinking about the 93/94 format (as evidenced … Continue reading Report : 93/94 Paris tournament at Magic-Bazar
