Making Magic in the Arena - Azorius Control (Theros)

I have a confession to make. When it comes to Magic, I am a control player at heart. Nothing pleases me more than watching my opponent squirm as I strategically extract, counter, and destroy their key pieces long enough for me to overpower them in the late game.

And thanks to one special card, we're able to execute that strategy.

I'm dreeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaam, dreeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaammmm traaaaaaaawwwwlin'.

Seasonal Vacation - Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage - Finale

It was fun while it lasted, but sadly our Seasonal Vacation must come to an end. With the aid of our superflame, we make short work of our adversaries and tie up all of our pending loose ends.

And once all pending tasks have been cleared, we'll be free to relax and soak up a few rays at Dragon Shores. Spyro's been dying to go their since the start of the trip, and it's about time we indulged our little dragon pal.

Legends of Runeterra - Card Games and Conversations

As someone with next to no interest in League of Legends, and someone who has been following news regarding Riot over the past few years, I was originally going to pass on Legends of Runeterra.

But as people I knew started playing it, and talking positively about it as a game, beyond being a good League of Legends tie-in, I grew intrigued. Now that I've tried the game myself, I've been having such a good time that I wanted to talk about it.

Making Magic in the Arena - Grixis Discard

Once more, we find ourselves venturing into Magic: Arena, this time with a deck I've fallen in love with for Theros standard. People who know me know that one of my favorite color combinations in Grixis, and we have a concoction that best shows off what it can do: Grixis Discard.

I can't claim credit for the deck though. The idea came from Dev from Strictly Better MTG, whose deck tech you can check out here.

My formula for this list is only slightly different from his, but it's still mostly the same deck. You can find my list here.

Seasonal Vacation - Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage - Part 3

Despite the serenity of the home world we now reside in, not all is well within the world of Avalar. Even discounting Ripto's machinations, there's plenty of trouble brewing between the local residents of each world. And we're just the right shade of purple dragon to deal with their problems.

Or at least play them off each other enough to make a profit.
