A relatively new clan, we are composed of players who know that the kitchen table is the best place to play MTG! There are no format restrictions - just friends who want to play some cards.
Since our inception back in July, we have grown strong with new membership. We are proud to say that our membership has reached over 20 (not including our numerous Friends)! We've participated in our first clan card creation contest, we're dabbling in our first mafia contest, and we're thriving. It's so nice to see a fledgling clan take off so well.
Want to join? Just PM BlackVise, RabidVacin, or baldersmashed.
If you just want to be a Friend of the Finks and hang around, that's fine, too.
BlackVise is our Clan Representative. Contact him for information on inter-clan contests, clan community happenings, etc.

Friends of the Finks
Finks and Friends alike: PM the Fink Tank your Cockatrice names!
Aaaaaaaah! That new thread smell! It's nice.
So I just ordered cards for my current decks, taking care of most of my wishlist, but it is making a comeback and fast as I rediscover cards and ideas I want to build with. It never ends...
I just discovered I need to preorder MH 3 Ultimate from gamestop so I can get the digital game guide for free! Good times will be had on the 19th and beyond...
How is everyone? We see people pop in and out so frequently nowadays I can't keep up with everyone's day to day. I have so much to do the next couple of weeks with 2 birthdays in my house as well as finding time to hit my LGS and do some gift shopping. Work has been really bad and continues to get worse. I need to find another job so I can be home with my kiddos at night and get some peace of mind.
Double posting? I read the forums rules, but something in my head said that if there was enough time between posts, it wouldn't be considered as such. Hmmmm...
If people come in and read a post, but don't respond, how are they to know changes are there when they come back again without rereading posts? Without a doubt, this sucks.
One of the reasons we have it is to stop clans from bumping their thread, perhaps we should clarify the time thing a bit in the rules thread.
The clan's really slowed down lately, where are you all?
There isn't a precedent set, but it could use some clarification. The rules simply state no double posting. Should someone have something to say, and the thread is beyond page 1 or lower on it, how is anyone to know something new was added?
And I have been wondering the same thing BV. It's been wierd...
