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 5 Timewalking Credos

Historicity.  Well, it's not called Timewalking for no reason. Historical relevance is paramount. While some don't care, some like me do and to the point that I wouldn't support an old school card pool that hasn't be played officially.

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

Spotlight on Mirror Universe

When I did my first "spotlight on" (Sylvan Libary), I went over the interaction with Mirror Universe real fast.  That interaction, and the deck that abuses it the most (Mirrorball) deserve articles of their own. When I posted an Instagram of my colour-correct Mirror Universe I asked people if they knew how to play around the … Continue reading Spotlight on Mirror Universe

Introducing Old School 95, TimeWalking’s version

I want to play some Old School with Ice Age and will organize some online tournaments in that format. Not a type II Ice Age, type II with Ice Age has its charms, but is mostly an established format, with the best decks very well known. Its top 3 (Necro, ErhnamGeddon and Sligh) are among … Continue reading Introducing Old School 95, TimeWalking’s version
