Grand Prix Atlanta Playmat

GP Atlanta – A Tournament in Black and White

I really referred to this as Grand Prix HOTLANTA all weekend, but I didn’t want to confuse anyone by the title…anyways, hello again guys, I’m back with another tournament report!  This was the farthest I’ve ever driven for a tournament, most of you all know that I live in Virginia, so it was about an eleven hour drive for my friends and I.  We had to go to this though, the competition would be stacked since the Pro Tour was just the previous weekend, and we were just itching to play some high level players.  We left on Thursday night and drove straight through the morning to make it to the tournament hall on Friday with just enough time to play in a last chance sealed trial.  So without further adieu, let’s get started!

Deck of the Week – Curtis Richardson | Grixis Control

Hello everyone this is Spencer Milligan, part of the Kaboom team bringing you a new segment called “Deck of the Week.” We will be going over a deck that has been catching my eye for the past couple of weeks now. I have been playing magic for what seems like forever now, and it has been a while since I’ve seen a good Grixis deck. For deck of the week, we aren’t always looking for the very best deck, or the latest net deck. We like to find decks from out local players, folks doing things a bit outside the box. Will played Grixis for a bit after Theros, and found that it dominated the Mono Blue and Mono Black matchup. So what does Curtis have to say about Grixis?  When I sat down to talk with him about the deck, this was his opening comment.

The Complete RUG Scapeshift Primer

As promised, I planned to deliver this article, but I have been very busy lately and I have lost a little faith in Scapeshift while testing some other strategies. None the less, I believe that with proper practice and the right metagame Scapeshift can be one of the most powerful decks available to you.

Magical Monthly Recap!

I know, I know, it’s been a while and I’ve missed you guys too!  I’ve been buried under piles and piles of work at my full time job, and I also got in a small car accident in the last month (I’m completely fine). But enough of my excuses, let me tell you where I’ve been!

BUG OUT!

This week I’d like to talk about my favorite color pairing in Magic, BUG. Black for hand disruption and removal, blue for permission, and green for big fat beats. Legacy in particular has the strongest cards available, and when all combined, you have a very fast, powerful and versatile deck that I’d argue is the best in legacy right now. Don’t believe me? Take a look at the tournament reports. 33 of the Top 184 decks at GP Paris ran BUG. Of the 8 decks that went 7-1 or better at the SCG Invitational Legacy portion, 5 were BUG. 3 of the Top 8 at SCG Milwaukee. And two wins at SCG Los Angeles and SCG Seattle, two weeks in a row. BUG is clearly the place to be. I’ll go over the various iterations of BUG in Legacy, some card choices, and why you should play the deck.
