Storm Control takes its seventh standard trophy home, winning MPDC 1.16. This time it was piloted by its creator kehmesis, who beat MPDC regular ZeroFusion with Use UR Illusion in the finals. It is blue’s turn in the Morningtide review series and the Mic is passed to Kingritz, who shares some awesome intel on Kingdrifter and does his own Morningtide review. The Spotlight is aimed at Red Deck Wins, the forgotten aggro deck in standard.

SPDC SEASON 4 WORLD’S CHAMPIONSHIP PREVIEW

Saturday, February 23rd, 2008


Hi, I’m back!
And I’m in a much better mood than last time, fortunately for you all… and myself.
Personally, I’m quite excited about the next SPDC event. To me, nothing beats SPDC World’s in term of PDC Events. SPDC has been the most popular PDC event for quite a while and the invitation-only tournament is highly regarded.
Since SPDC World’s is next Thursday, I thought it would be appropriate to resume my writing duties and offer you a preview of what we can expect.

What We Have For You Today

Last monday’s MPDC (with a turn-out of a whopping 22 players!) was won by everyone’s favorite (and only) MPDC article writer, myself, playing kehmesis’ version of UR Storm Control (which is featured in the Spotlight), defeating mikec_00 piloting Use UR Illusion in the finals. On top of this I’ll continue to look into Morningtime with standards least played color: Green. Will Morningtide change this? Last, but not least, an interview with kehmesis, his first article feature after “going nuts”!

Who is up to the challenge of beating the bat? Who will rise to the task of bringing beauty to a grotesque world? Who will free his brethren from the pillories of plutocracy and reshape Ravnica? Starting on March 3, BPDC brings you to a world rife with political strife among the ten guilds. This is PDC as it has never been done before, and Ravnica Block as you’ve never seen it before — cheap and easy.
This, my friends, is the future of Block PDC. Ravnica Block Pauper. Stay tuned.

Following on the footsteps of last week, CPDC 7.14 again was led by Aggro Control and won by Orzhov Blink. Orzhov has long been classified as being good enough to get to the elimination rounds but not good enough to bring it home. Is now the time that is has finally made its move to the upper level?

What We Have For You Today

This week I’ll have to listen to [url=http://www.ts-discovery.de/images/Guns%20N'%20Roses%20Use%20your%20illusion%201.jpg]Gun’s and Roses[/url] more. The article will contain the continuation of the Morningtide overview, this time with the color best at destroying you footware; the color of the swamp (Don’t step in!). MPDC was won by jtamaro with an old favorite, White Weenie, beating a modified version of UR Storm Control, played by ChronicHeaves in the finals. The deck in the spotlight this week will be Grimdrifter, and the mic is passed to RaiserUK, who gives many interesting answers about, among others, his ability to go to multiple top spots while being a newcomer.

The Monday Mulligan #2: I Don’t Hate Mondays!

What We Have For You Today

In todays Mulligan, I’ll talk about last mondays MPDC, which was won by 53N531 playing UR Illusions, beating hurriboy with his Sticks ‘n Stones list in the finals. The mic is in the hands of Sensei this week, talking about the state of the meta and the upcomming Morningtide release. This weeks winning MPDC list will be in the spotlight, having multiple pilots and top places in the last two weeks. I am also starting my five part “comprehensive” Morningtide standard overview, with the most worthwhile white commons for standard. The delay of both MTGO3.0 and Morningtide will give me enough time to finish this before we can flip the cards through our digital fingers.
