A Word on Testing and Grand Prix Lille

Grand Prix Lille will be here soon, and it’s time to find 75 cards that you are willing to take into battle. But how does one identify which deck to play, and more importantly, which cards to play in this very deck? There are a couple of things I’d like to talk about when it comes to testing, and how to choose a deck. I am well aware of the fact that they won’t cover everything, but they should give you a good impression of what I believe to be important for tournament deck choice, and should be giving you with an idea or two in order to help improve your own testing process. And with GP Lille on the horizon it can’t be of any harm, I suppose.

A Reward for Patience – 2nd Place at SCG Cleveland Legacy Premier IQ

“Have the patience and you’ll be rewarded with an absolutely amazing experience from the tournament where you will never have to say I was unlucky.” — Tomáš Vlček on learning Miracles

When I heard this listening to Everyday Eternal’s Miracle Men podcast, I thought I was on the verge of such an experience. And then it happened on April 26, 2015 at the SCG Cleveland Legacy Premier IQ.

Ovinogeddon 9 Report – 2nd Place with Miracles

Like many others, I have heard a lot about the legend of Ovinogeddon. It is the second largest non-WotC run Eternal tournament in Europe (only behind the grand Bazaar of Moxen). It takes place every year in Milano, Italy’s most expensive city. Luckily my good friend Igor Panigada, who lives in Prague, is originally from the Lombardia’s capital. He was going and wanted us to attend as well. He told us about extremely cheap return tickets from Easy Jet (they were only 55 Euros!), and got us an amazing hotel not far from metro, only 10 minutes by foot away from the site. He even started and edited a private Facebook page where he told us literally everything we needed to know about Italy, Milano and playing Magic in Italy. Otherwise we wouldn’t have watched several videos about the airport pickpockets, and wouldn’t have researched 25 Top 8s of past Italian Legacy tournaments. It is amazing to have such a friend, so thank you Igor!

Everyday Eternal Podcast Episode 30: Delving into Previous Misgivings

In episode 30 of #EverydayEternal Matt Pavlic (sdematt) talks with Bob Huang (@silyaznfoo) about Bob’s recent win at the StarCityGames Legacy Open in New Jersey with a UR Delver deck packed with Kahns of Tarkir cards, and how very wrong the ‘cast was in its initial evaluation of those cards. Sean O’Brien (nedleeds) also briefly joins in towards the end to talk a bit of Vintage. This will be followed up with a preview of Eternal Weekend coming soon!

Everyday Eternal Podcast Episode 29: Finally, a Use for Magic Online

In episode 29 of #EverydayEternal Matt Pavlic (sdematt), Sam Craven (@thecravenone), and Julian Knab (@itsJulian23) wrap up the last of the new cards from Khans of Tarkir. There’s not a lot left, so the discussion quickly moves from the plane of the Khans to the realm of online Magic. Sam introduces us to the Vintage Super League, which he hopes will bring more attention and interest to Vintage. Julian shares stories from the recent Legacy MOCS – the only non-GP Legacy tournament that can be used to qualify for a Pro Tour.

Everyday Eternal Podcast Episode 28: Dega Rules, Mardu Drools!

In episode 28 of #EverydayEternal Matt Pavlic (sdematt) and Sean O’Brien (nedleeds) talk Khans of Tarkir spoilers, and Sean’s Vintage experiences at GenCon 2014. They’re later joined by Julian Knab (@itsJulian23) to talk about Matt’s recent port of Sean’s Dega Vintage deck in to Legacy. But Julian isn’t convinced. Between Miracles and Elves, is there room for such a deck in the format?
