Rescued from the Pit: Players Ball and Rambles

There was a thick fog over Chicago when we rolled in Friday night before the Players Ball. I’ve always really liked Chicago, having been there with my wife once and with bands a few times. Great food, sweet architecture, and just a cool, dark gothic vibe about it. My travel plans changed a couple of …

The Wind in your Sails

Have you ever stopped to ask yourself what it is exactly that motivates you? Do you move through life quenching the fire from one desire only to be consumed by another?

Titania is a Punk: Magix not Dead

When I got into old school I searched out all of the content I could find. I gorged on it. After my initial introduction through an Eternal Weekend tournament report, I found Understanding Ancestral, the Wizards Tower, and eventually the MTG Underground among others. I loved them all, but Shaman Ben’s MTG Underground struck me …
