    Thanks for sharing, FTW! It looks like you're better at playing the Stasis deck than I am. Or maybe its victories are the result of your sneaky deck updates --- fitting Time Walk in there seems like...

    Re: [Format] Martian Timewalk

    Wow, MaskNought looks scary. I'm trying out those three decks plus RDW, Big Red, GW NettleGeddon, Mono-Black Mind Twist, and BW 8-Twist in my next gauntlet. Seems like Mind Twist must gain a lot of...

    The difference between a goofy design and a really cool, creative design is often just in the ďskinĒ (Look At Me, Iím The DCI vs Meddling Mage). Previous Un-sets have strayed really close to designs...

    Is THAT why Sunglasses of Urza was printed?!

    It looks like RUG ChannelBall is the best deck so far and URW Control is perhaps number two. BW 8Twist also seems to have an ever-or-better record...

    Cool lists! I'd been wondering how to use Groundbreaker. And I'd forgotten all about Gauntlet of Might. I'm looking forward to playing with these. And thanks for posting your own testing results!...
