The Bad News: My UR Control homebrew got decimated this passed Thursday. The Good News: I converted the deck into a Jeskai Control deck, which allowed me to utilize Irrigated Farmland, as well as a few other awesome cards in Blessed Alliance, Cast Out, and Linvala. The Result? 3 matches that went 1-2, 2-1, and 1-2. (A whole lot more respectable than 0-6.) Relying too heavily on basic lands with a deck that almost always makes it to the late game meant that I was top-decking a
Pro Tour Hour of Devastation takes place this weekend in Kyoto, Japan. And since we already have an SCG Open under our belts from this Standard season, we'll know by next week what Magic the Gathering's Standard Constructed Format is truly looking like.

Oh, boy. This one's going to be rough. Three or four shimmering moments shrouded in gargantuan mounds of Kaiju Shit. Samuel L. Jackson, Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, John Goodman, and John C. Reilly...how can this many top-tier actors cohesively create such a silly product. Kong: Skull Island's a real head scratcher. Film was almost over and I didn't know a single one of the character's names. So when they got batted down or flung into the cliffside, I truly didn't give a rat'
Game of Thrones: The only show I know of that can have you on the edge of your seat, before the opening credits have run. As GoT fans, we waited patiently. We were then told the seventh season of Game of Thrones would be delayed until the summer, and wouldn't be starting in April as it normally did. Seasonality enduced shift in production. (After all, Winter can't come correctly if you're shooting it in the fall.) And I think most fans would agree, it was worth the wait. With
