Cook’s Kitchen – One Round (NELC: 03/02/2013)

Cook’s Kitchen – One Round (NELC: 03/02/2013)

It was March 2nd, my twenty-fourth birthday.

I crawled out of bed, my body slightly aching from the previous night’s festivities. I thought to myself, “Man, I’m getting old” before heading to the bathroom to prepare for the day. I accomplished my morning rituals and then waited for Adam Van Fleet to arrive at my house. Once Adam was there, I went to pick up the other member of “Team Birthday Weekend”, Nick Patnode. After he was in the car, we found 81S and began our trip to Vestal, NY from Syracuse. Continue reading Cook’s Kitchen – One Round (NELC: 03/02/2013)

Cook’s Kitchen – Storm Hands IV

Cook’s Kitchen – Storm Hands IV

It’s been a while since my last Storm Hands! Luckily, it’s back! This time we’re going to focus on beating any storm deck’s worse nightmare – MUD/Stax. While The EPIC Storm can be blazingly fast, sometimes its pure speed is just not enough to defeat MUD. The best advice I can give is to win the die roll, however, they say those odds are random. The reason these “MUD” decks are an issue is that they play cards such as Chalice of the Void, Trinisphere, and Lodestone Golem. These cards can completely shut down anyone trying to create a storm, they create long lasting effects that are much more difficult than a Force of Will to win through.

Cook’s Kitchen – Storming into Edison (02/10/2013): Tenth Place

Friday was miserable. There is simply no other way to put it. With storm Nemo on the horizon, when I awoke for work I knew it was going to be a tough day. Since when does society name snowstorms? If they continue this, I just hope the next one is Dory. Anyway, I left work an hour early hoping to get a slight jump on the storm, it was all in vein. The snow was already coming down hard as I waited for Dan Walton and Eric LaFramboise to pick me up at my house. After I was in the car, we swung a couple blocks over to pick up Nick Patnode and we were our way. Continue reading Cook’s Kitchen – Storming into Edison (02/10/2013): Tenth Place
