With the Opening of Major Arcana, a new LGS in Dundee by one of my friends most of the people i regularly played with started to pick up the game. This was great as i was able to play people on the same newbie gaming level as i was, playing with a standard sixty card deck. The other player were mostly using M13 starter sets and i got to use my Mirrodin besieged deck (blue/black) which played differently to how the other players were use to. Mainly things like Proliferate and living weapons. Unfortunately this didn't help me much against Krenko's goblin horde who was generating more tokens than i could kill or block.
So after a good few games i decided to try a new deck and got myself the Slaughterhouse deck from Avacyn restored. Its a red/black deck which if i am being honest i still really enjoy using. Blood artist being my favourite card in it.
The next step for me was to create my own deck from scratch
For this one i drafted a Selesnya guild deck.
I'm tempted to try and make a nice sixty card Standard deck for Rakdos.
I have also been quite fond of the Mirrodin artwork and when i happened across The Moons of Mirrodin novel i just had to pick it up.
Mirrodin Glissa Deck
After reading the novel I'm wanting to make a deck up from all the Mirrodin sets based around Glissa Sunseeker and her companions and even some of the bad guys.
Well thats the story so far.... stay tuned for more.
