We apologize profusely to any 56kers out there today. Don't worry; this won't be all that common. It's just something we haven't seen before, so it'll get the front page for a day. Hopefully you'll come back tomorrow for some text-based content :).

--Introduction to "The Magic Sock" video blog.
--Discussion of the Highlander format: rules and the banned list. (Those interested in the origin of Highlander can read more here.) The Highlander name came from the movie "Highlander." Only see the first movie. Don't even think of being tempted to see the others--they're horrible.
--Run through of a Highlander deck, reviewing the type of cards you want to have in there.
