With the standard meta consisting of Temur energy, mono black zombies, and green/black delirium, there needs to be a force to stop this wave of aggro. That force is Mardu Control, the deck that I’ve been playing since Aether Revolt, and have had consistently strong results with. An intuitive hybrid between Midrange and Control, this standard menace comes packed with the best removal and finishers that the colors offer, guaranteed to leave your opponents in the dust.
There comes a time when you stumble upon a card and you realize that it is now your life’s goal to make a deck around that card. I kind of slacked when it came to Khaladesh spoilers, so when I found Sram I was blown away. I’ve created numerous mono-white decks and they have always felt like they were lacking something: card draw.
Okay, so we’ve established that steampunk is something close to my heart. In addition to loving steampunk, I am a HUGE fan of Marvel’s Thor, which stemmed from my fondness of Norse mythology. Rhune takes steampunk and fuses it with Norse mythological flavoring, creating a new genre: Stormpunk. That’s right when you enter the realms of Rhune, you are playing in a setting of dwarves, aelves, giants, mechanical monstrosities, and gods!
Gaming with strangers can be a scary thing. When I had the need to play Dungeons and dragons, and none of my friends were available, I made a bold move and gone into a local shop to try and find a group.
Alright, guys, we’re back this week with something a little out of my comfort zone: Sultai MimeOoze Typically my Commander decks are pretty powerful, but I would hesitate to call them “competitive.” I feel that I build Commander decks as strong as they can be without fitting that moniker. There’s usually some acknowledged flaw in them that I don’t attempt to fix, that kind of thing.
Cool Mini or Not’s Wrath of Kings is not only visually stimulating, it’s mentally stimulating. There is one word that encompasses everything Wrath of Kings represents: Intuitive. For those of you who are veterans of the tabletop wargames field, this game will seem familiar yet different in comparison to games you’ve played.
When I first met Derek, he was hard at work with painting some minis he had just picked up. I have always been drawn to the forces of chaos when […]
Golems are iconic creatures in fantasy settings. They are often created as protectors that accompany magi on their journeys. There are some that want a formidable foe for their opponents […]
In my many years of playing roleplaying games, there have been recurring problems that have arose from players. I have found myself stressing the importance of what not to do in order to enhance what to do. And I think the approach of teaching people things based on personal experience is really helping to increase the enjoyment that people take away from gaming.
Hey guys, last Big Daddy Brews I promised a budget deck. Budget can mean something a little different for everyone so here I’m specifically aiming to keep the deck at around $100 total. Every single card in the deck (at the time that I am writing this) is under $10.
There are times when I am really tired but am inspired to create. There was one particular night when I had a friend over and we were creating some art and I sketched up a strange creature concept: A Goblin mixed with the chaos of a Demon.
Right away I was taken back to my days of sitting in the front of my old television playing games on my Nintendo. Eroth Productions had successfully created a game with the feeling of exploring dungeons in a classic Nintendo-like setting. The nostalgia was taking over, and I became overly excited to play the game; I could hear its dungeons beckoning me to enter.
Fusion concepts are the future and I am glad to see they are starting to take off! And I am particularly excited that this one combines two things that go together like peanut butter and jelly… or coffee and board games!
I was led to Hero Forge by encountering one of their posts while scrolling through my Facebook wall. I was intrigued by the fact that you could create a miniature from scratch using their editor!
“What do you as a DM/GM like to see out of your party? And if you were going to have someone join the group mid-adventure, what would you do about the level gap?”
Brent is one of the creative geniuses that has so much talent that it’s a shame the world doesn’t know him more than it does. Seriously, this guy’s works are […]
