I started playing Magic a little over 3 1/2 years ago when a couple of friends randomly asked if I still had my cards from middle school. That turned into casual games with them from time to time. Eventually that wasn’t enough for me. I wanted to play more often than they could. I did some research online and found this thing called Friday Night Magic, called my local game store and a few days later showed up to my first FNM. I was in for a rude awakening. While there were only 8 people that first Friday I couldn’t beat one I faced. I quickly learned that a preconstructed infect deck was not good in the land of titans and eldrazi. I may have gone 0-3 that night not winning a single game but that lit a fire in me that still burns today. I had to get better. I had to buy better cards. I had to learn how to play competitive magic. I was hooked! I started playing as much as I could, learning all the time. Once I got the hang of FNM I still wanted more, so it was onto StarCityGames Opens, IQs, and Grand Prix. Read More Here
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!

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.

After a long day of Magic at the IQ, Will and Eric take on a Theros Block draft. Results weren’t too great, but it was a ton of fun! Thanks for watching, and stay tuned for more draft videos from Kaboom!
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.
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!
