[Tournament Report] February Chaos is Magic at Pandemonium

Let's have a battle!
Let’s have a battle!

So today, on the last day of the worst month ever (at least if you were in New England), Pandemonium ran its Chaos is Magic event, where everyone got to play two manes. Now, sure, one option for this is to take your baller tournament deck and insert a DJ or a Maud or what have you for value, but where’s the joy in that? For this event, the members of Team Pandeponium went a different direction.

A flavor direction.

A fanfic direction.

And it was beautiful.

Welcome to another installment of everyone’s favorite article series: Friendship is Tragic. This article is a very special one. You see, our group has a club: The Cutie Mark Crusaders of Regret.

Welcome to another installment of Friendship Is Tragic. This is the place where all the terrible decisions we have made, and ill conceived decks we have built, live.

That terrible mane that is only good at one thing: confronting with Ponyville Banner. However, this deck is not just a one trick pony. It takes a few tips from good ol’ Airquotes and Berry punch (because after that last article how could it be a bad idea?) Continue reading Friendship Is Tragic Primer: Berry Punch Babysits the CMC

[Tournament Report] PonyCon 2015

Hey friends, long time no talk! I’ve been not building very exciting decks because of dumb combo stuff and also we’ve been drafting a lot? I guess I made that Bubbly Mare hyperaggro monstrosity, but it’s a monstrosity, so you know.

After the bans, I decided to go to Ponycon, and so I was mostly focused on decks for Ponycon. Under the cut I’ll talk about the modifications Niko and I made to the deck (Dream Quest) and some about my games. And I’ll probably post a picture of my lunch from Sunday because it was an amazing gigantic plate of meat and starch. Are you excited for party times?

We're all excited for party times.
