Week Six!

More than halfway through, should be smooth sailing from here right?

This week we changed:


+2 Windswept Heath
-2 Llanowar Wastes

The two Windswept Heaths put us back $21 (or 13 MTGO Tix).

The plan from here on out is to budget every week for a way to produce white mana or white sideboard options. Having access to Eidolon of Rhetoric, Kataki, War’s Wage, Rest in Peace, Selfless Spirit, Burrenton Forge-Tender, and Aven Mindscensor means that we could potentially win otherwise terrible match-ups. It turns out that on MTGO we face a lot of these bad match-ups on a weekly basis—Storm, Living End, UW Control—and I’m so sick of losing.

Here is the most recent list:

A quick disclaimer before the videos, this week it goes really bad. I mostly kept my composure but this league was demoralizing, like contemplate quitting Magic demoralizing. I’m sure there’s a screencap in here somewhere of the saddest I’ve been playing Magic.

In terms of Magic, Shawn Massak is a Modern enthusiast, with a penchant for tier two decks, counterspells, and pre Eighth Edition frames. In terms of life, Shawn lives in Brighton, MA where he works as an employment coordinator for people with disabilities, plays guitar in an indie-pop band, and spends his free time reading comics, complaining about pro-wrestling, and wishing his apartment allowed dogs as pets.
