The Captain’s Log: Adapting RUG for the Current Metagame

The Captain’s Log: Adapting RUG for the Current Metagame

As of late there has been a disturbing trend in our local and the broader meta game at large. RUG is on the decline! Now by decline I mean RUG staggered from almost 30% of a typical Star City Games tournament to a ghastly 20%. What a stark drop isn’t it? Don’t be worried though the deck is far from dead, there is just something else lurking in the shadows. But that is a discussion of a later date, this week we talk about the problem.

The Captain’s Log – Building a RUG Sideboard

Last week I took you inside my list for RUG Delver. While some might think it’s a pretty standard list, there were a few variations that I think gives it the edge it needs in the current metagame.

First things first, this article marks one year of writing for Jupiter Games. They’ve been great to me, fantastic really. I couldn’t ask for a better store to write for, very flexible with me and the ridiculous times I turn in articles. Not to mention, they pay me pretty well. I guess what I’m saying is I’m thankful they continue to let me write here. It’s interesting to look back and see what I wrote when I first started a year ago compared to now. I’ll be the first to say I’m not the greatest writer, but I believe I’ve had some hits along the way. Now my thoughts on Post Rotation Standard: Continue reading Cook’s Kitchen – Post Rotation Standard
