Gamer Pride

It was the night before Saturday,
I was out on the town.
I like to act a bit silly,
Get some laughs and play the clown

I was talking with a girl,
She had pleasant enough features
When the talk turned to interests,
I mentioned that I like to cast Creatures.

From here it can get hard to get time of day,
This talk of nerd can give off dread
But how can one see that it’s just how I have fun
when visions of Pokemon dance in their head?

No one ever hears of Magic’s social side,
Hundreds of people playing in the one space
They don’t learn about the friends and networks i’ve made,
Or the camaraderie that takes place

I traveled to Brisbane last year,
Met players from New York and Portugal
I’m also friends with “The Best Faerie Player in the World”
His name is Paulo, from Brazil

I had better things to do than continue that night,
I left her thinking that I was quite lame
It doesn’t bother me what other people think
For there’s plenty of women out there, but only so much time to game!

Jund Ramp, some maudling thoughts.

Never let it be said that there isn’t wrong with trying things. Below is a Jund Ramp list I worked on that started off with a Panorama/Basic Land suite. I think Panoramas are OK, but they’re not what this deck is looking for. Without further ado, the list.

 7 Forest
3 Swamp
4 Treetop Village
4 Mountain
4 Twilight Mire
2 Fire-Lit Thicket

3 Cloudthresher
1 Hellkite Overlord
4 Kitchen Finks
3 Broodmate Dragon

4 Gift of the Gargantuan
2 Makeshift Mannequin
1 Loxodon Warhammer
4 Rampant Growth
3 Violent Ultimatum
4 Resounding Thunder
4 Firespout
3 Garruk Wildspeaker

I feel like I want to trim a forest for a mountain, just to make it easier to cast Violent Ultimatum.
