Join Brian, Mike, Dirk and Chewie as they discuss all things Magic: The Gathering.

Episode 13 - Deck Types and a New Segment

First we have to resurrect Squanto, since Vegas worked him to death.  From there, the episode takes off and never really stops.  Squanto, Mike, Brian, and I discuss the differences between the three major types of Magic decks:  Aggro, Control, and Combo.  At great length.  No really, we're really pretty thorough.  Pros, cons, examples, rantings, ravings, questions, arguments.  Pretty much everything except the kitchen sink and a shotgun blast. 

 

Then we introduce a new segment to the show, Out of the Deck Box (possibly to be renamed later), where one of us dorks just picks a deck from his casual collection and talks about it.  Since this was my idea, I started it up with my oldest surviving deck idea and one of my all-time favorites to play.  I simply call it the Graveyard Deck.  Here's the list:

Creatures

4 Nether Shadow

4 Ashen Ghoul

4 Nether Traitor

4 Abyssal Gatekeeper

2 Phyrexian Plaguelord

1 each of the following:

Ascendant Evincar; Mortivore; Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder; Havoc Demon; Patron of the Nezumi; Braids, Cabal Minion; Magus of the Abyss; Woebringer Demon; Dross Harvester; Liege of the Pit; Devouring Strossus; Hell's Caretaker; Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper

Spells

4 Buried Alive

2 Dread Return

1 each of the following:

Recurring Nightmare; Attrition; Death Pit Offering; Hecatomb;

Land

2 Cabal Coffers

1 Phyrexian Tower
