Tales of the Squire – On the Road

Wow people, it has been a while since I have last written an article and that is mainly because I have not been playing all that much Magic.  If you haven’t realized all ready, Standard is not really for me and there are no weekly Legacy events that I can attend. I have mainly been focusing on my Legacy game, but the deck I am currently playing is very solid and I wouldn’t be able to write an article on the few changes I want to make to the deck.  So instead of actually playing Magic, I have been on the road with the guys from Jupiter Games working at different Grand Prix.  So for this article I am going to just recap some of the fun I have been having on the road and some of the things that have been pretty lame.  I don’t remember every single detail but hopefully I can cover enough to make this article one that you all enjoy.

While this upcoming trip to Baltimore may not be a “new” place for me, it’s certainly a place I’m unfamiliar with. I’ve been there once at the beginning of last summer with the same three guys I’m traveling down with again.  This trip is going to be better than the last for one simple reason – there won’t be any Mental Misstep. Well… at least in Legacy. No promises for Standard. I’ve been playing UW Delver since I wrote about it here. Some of the lists may have incorporated Misstep, I’m not too proud of it, but the one I’m playing this upcoming weekend doesn’t! Continue reading Cook’s Kitchen – Preparing for Baltimore
