Corvin Powell’s Death Cloud Rock Deck

This is the deck that longtime listener Corvin Powell was playing at Grand Prix Richmond.  He put Death Cloud in more of a Rock-type build, which is more interactive and disruptive than Mike’s Death Tron deck. Since his deck is also a Death Cloud deck but a completely different take than Mike’s, we brought him on the show to talk about it!  He was on Episode 315 – The GP Richmond Episode (for obvious reasons) to talk about his deck, the GP itself, and everything else, so go give it a listen!

Mike’s Modern Death Tron Deck

Here’s the Green-Black Tron deck Mike took to GP Richmond.  In his own words, he went this way because he really wanted to play Death Cloud in Modern, so he took a stock Green-Red Tron list and adapted it to suit his needs.  If you’d like to hear more about it, be sure to listen to Episode 315 – The GP Richmond Episode!  We also brought on listener Corvin Powell to talk about his Death Cloud deck, click the link to see it!

Brian’s Standard Jund SCG IQ Deck

Fanatic of Xenagos
If you listened to episode 312 of The Mana Pool, you’ll know that Brian told us all about his Standard Jund brew that he was planning on taking to the StarCityGames Invitational Qualifier on 2/15.  Here’s the final list that he actually played at the IQ, presented for your perusal.  He piloted the deck to a 2-3 record.  While that’s not the best record, he did say the deck showed a lot of promise and that it was a tons of fun to play.

Spellslinging at GP Charleston

Grand Prix Charleston

Lots of people have asked about the decks I played at Grand Prix Charleston.  So I decided to put them all up here so everyone will leave me the hell alone for all to see.  Since I was going to be there representing MTGCast, I decided that I wanted to play some decks provided by the various and sundry podcasters on the network!  So I poked around and begged for things, and came up with a handful of lists I liked.  I ended up with three decks for Standard, three decks for Commander, and two Pauper decks.

 

Commander

Might as well get this over with.  These decks were not inspired by anyone else, I just picked three of my favorites and played them.  I had the Spirit of the Night deck, the Johan deck, and of course my Kaervek the Merciless deck.  Those have all been discussed elsewhere, thus the links.  Click on them and be amazed!  That was easy, now let’s check out the poor man’s cards!

Duels 2013 Deck Evolution – The Drake Equation* Part 2

Panoptic Mirror

*I still totally stole this from Jungle Rat Rob, one of the hosts of The Retro League podcast.  If you’d like more information on why this name is so awesome, you should just go read the beginning of Part 1.

Hey, look at that, I’m back!  I’m attempting to chronicle the evolution of the decks in Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013 as I unlock cards, just to give you an idea of how my brain works when it comes to Magic.  A vague and scrambled idea, but still.  Last time I stopped when I was halfway through Talrand’s Crosswinds deck.  I hit Panoptic Mirror and, looking at my notes sensing a change on the horizon, decided that would be a good place to insert a break.
