    So I'm back from my trip 'round the world.

    Hi!


    How was your trip? Where did you go?


    Belize! It was absolutely awesome!

    I can tell some stories if wanted. Including Fred, the Creole style snapper. I have pictures somewhere....

    Actually, I've been thinking of dropping Conjurer's Closet. Hell, I might cut Mind's Eye anyways. Closet has that thing that I have always stated that I do not like - it's incredibly useless without a board in the first place. Cheap, useful things are always better than expensive, useless things. True facts.

    6cc Chandra isn't on the board, or anywhere near to it. The + ability is so underrated. It's not often that you get four damage in red. Four damage is a ton! Kill that Bob, kill that Stoneforge, kill that Zur, kill that 0/1 kobold...

    On that note, Flametongue Kavu has sometimes entered my list for pretty much this reason. I love blowing things up - spot removal is the most underutilized aspect of EDH. Most players seem to denounce it in favor of costly wipes that might not be quick enough to effectively change the flow of the game.

    So almost every deck that uses the combat step in duel commander would likely be sleeving this up, if they could spare a slot in the 99 -

    Hero's Blade 2
    Artifact -- Equipment (U)
    Equipped creature gets +3/+2.
    Whenever a legendary creature enters the battlefield under your control, you may attach Hero's Blade to it.
    Equip 4
    The best swords are forged with dragonfire.

    I like it, and will test the card out before FRF is released. Smile


    Hero's Blade is actually pretty useless. You're paying six mana to equip if you're not living the dream and casting Geist (which makes this terrible to draw after you've played Geist) and it doesn't actually do anything. +3/+2 isn't worth it. I'd MUCH rather play Pike and get First Strike, which I consider to be more valuable than a butt.

    Each piece of equipment needs to be good on its own, since they're literally useless without creature presence. Hero's Blade fails that test miserably, despite the cute interaction of T2 blade T3 Geist.

    I can't do ghost pepper anything. I like spicy but I don't like painful spicy; I draw my line at habenero.


    When the heat starts to take away from the flavor is where I draw the line. I don't mind hot - but hot for the sake of hot and not to improve on the dish doesn't sit with me.

    Oooh. Europe. Do you already know where you'll be going?


    Not yet! I'm not one to plan ahead. Much less fun that way.

    In related news - looks like I'll be in Houston on Sunday night. Depending on how transport works out I may be able to run around and play some games, if anyone has a store recommendation...

    Whatcha traveling for? If it's vacation, that sounds like a long one. I'm preemptively jealous.

    Since I started traveling for work in 2013, I've really wanted to get out and see Europe. Enjoy it out there.


    Two week kickback involving tourist traps such as Ancient Ruins, Deep Dark Caves, Big Ass Hole Filled With Water, Extravagantly Named Islands, and Whatever Alcohol I Can Get My Hands On. Cruise Control For Cool.

    Europe's currently looking like a faint hope, but I do want to spend some time running around. No fun in being surrounded by the same environment day after day.

    Juwdah, orenmanibnida!

    (That's Korean for "Long time no see." I may have butchered the correct spelling.)


    Sorry, but without a soundcloud of it I can't accept this.
