Tales of the Squire – A Weekend of Tournaments

Hello all readers out there who have decided to well, read this. I know I have not written in a while and honestly do not plan to get back onto a regular writing schedule. However I do want to entrance you all with some information from this past weekend. For those of you who were unaware, Jupiter held a $500 FNM and then a Duel for Duals on Saturday. I played in both and cashed in on both with some unusual deck choices and just wanted to share. So let’s begin! Continue reading Tales of the Squire – A Weekend of Tournaments

Tales of the Squire – NELC Action and GP Trial Fun

If any of you lovely readers follow Jupiter Games at all you know that a few weekends ago (Feb 11th and 12th) was a time for Legacy.  Jupiter held two events, one being their monthly Northeast Legacy Championship (NELC) Qualifier, and the other being a Grand Prix Indy Trial.  I knew I wanted to play in both and did exactly that. I’m not going to give you a tournament report because I want to focus more on the deck I played on Sunday and just give you a brief talk about the actual tournament play. So lets’ get right into it!

Tales of the Squire – Looking into Dark Ascension

As most of you know, Dark Ascension is being spoiled daily and so far some cards have been pretty awesome and some other cards have not been that great, but that is what Magic is. If Wizards did not print bad cards, what else would I last pick in draft? I have been trying my best to keep up with the spoilers and try to give you folks something to read about and to learn about what cards I feel are going to be good and what cards aren’t.  So let us dive right in and talk about some cards.

Tales of the Squire – Story Time

Hello kids, this week we are going to do something a little bit different. We are going to have story time, and I’ll tell you why. I know that when I read a tournament report, I don’t really need to know what happened on turn 3 when you cast Knight of the Reliquary and your opponent Dazed. I can read the title of your article or skim to the end to see that you took 2nd in a crushing defeat in the finals. Now I realize this is hypocritical because I have written tournament reports before doing exactly what I do not really care for, but oh well. I will probably continue to write tournament reports if I do well. Continue reading Tales of the Squire – Story Time

Tales of the Squire– Limited Time

by Dan Rae

 

I want to start off by saying sorry for taking so long to get an article written.  I have been super busy with school work that when I get free time to write, I am pretty much beat and I do not want to just rush out some poorly written article that talks about random topics that you truly do not care about.  Let’s just hope that is not the case with this one.

Tales of the Squire – What is Going On in Legacy?

by Dan Rae

 

I want to start off by saying that ever since the tournament use of Stoneforge Mystic, Squire has gotten a lot press. Once Stoneforge has become “useless” people will refer to her as a Squire.  While this obviously doesn’t matter because cards get nicknamed all the time, for example:

Dark Confidant is usually referred to as “Bob”.  Birds of Paradise are simply “BoP”, and I’m not sure if other people call Sphinx of Uthuun, “Fact or Fiction Sphinx” or not, and while that name may be longer, I hate saying “Uthuun”.  This term does not work for everyone because Fact or Fiction may be foreign to them.

 

But why does everyone have to call a creature that has become worthless a Squire?  Why not call it a Vodalian Soldier?
