Ash in my mouth: a eulogy

I started out at Magic: the Gathering buying Revised starter decks and The Dark boosters from the grouchy old man at the dingy local hobby store. I got about as deep into it as a financially dependent tween could do. I collected a binder full of the rares that appealed to me. I puzzled through one of the novels. Eventually, after lots of failed, juvenile attempts at brewing, I put together a mono-black aggro deck that wasn’t too bad. On release day for Ice Age, I bought a couple packs at the Northgate mall in San Rafael. I did not know it at the time, of course, but I would not buy another Magic product until Kaladesh.

There was no single reason for the lapse. I didn’t stop loving the game. But I was a budding teenager, and I wanted to spen…

Helanhalvan's Guide to Superfriends

Hi, I have made some earlier posts to help new players get a better hold of Magic: The Gathering as a game, mostly focusing on deckbuilding.  This time I decided to talk a little bit about an Archetype that's quite big in the rank 30+ meta of Magic Duels.

  • 1 What is Superfriends?
    • 1.1 How Superfriends work
  • 2 Main weaknesses of Superfriends
    • 2.1 Mana base
    • 2.2 Few power cards
    • 2.3 Slow
  • 3 Types of decks that can beat superfriends
    • 3.1 Mill
    • 3.2 Clues/Thopters/Chairs
    • 3.3 Don't let them do it!
  • 4 The End?

Superfriends is not a deck, it's an archetype, and there are more than a few decks in it. The main idea of Superfriends is that you have planewalkers and board removal, and lots of both.

The main power of Superfriends comes from the fact that planewalkers can only really be …

Helanhalvan's Guide to making a Deck better

At the end of this post, I stressed that deck building is an iterative process, and therefore does require testing before it is "complete" if it ever happens. Deck tinkering is a creative process, and people probably work differently, keep that in mind while reading this. Also, this post contains some made up words, or at least names for concepts that might not have had names before. If you don't like them, and have better ideas, tell me. Terminology can make or break a lot of things.

If you somehow have managed to assemble a deck, and want to improve it, there are a two ways to do so.

  • replacing a card/a few cards
  • re-building the deck

At what stage "replacing a few cards" becomes "re-building the deck" is up for debate. However, where that line i…

Disappearing Avatars?

Hello everyone,

is it just me or are all avatar-pictures gone? I'm pretty sure same thing happened to Wizards Ai v1. The only one i can see right now is Bequer's.

Checked if my photo got deleted, but it's still there. See .

Searched help pages and forums, couldn't find a solution except wikia server issues that caused problems with random pictures in articles but not avatars.

So, do you guys have any idea? Thanks in advance!

HolyCrap WOTF (talk) 20:34, August 22, 2015 (UTC)

Here's Wikia support's response:

Hello HolyCrap WOTF

Thanks for contacting us. Apologies for this issue - we had a technical hiccup recently that caused some avatars to be reverted to old versions (or potentially go away). We've investigated the fault and are taking steps to ensur…
