The work here is done

Updating this blog is mostly a pleasure. Every now and then though, I feel like I don't really have the time to write an interesting post. This was one of those weeks. There has been a lot of travelling on the agenda, and I'm working on a presentation for a meetup this Wednesday evening. 93/94 teching had to take a back seat to socialising and work.

This was pretty good week to be low on time for blogging though. Two great articles about 93/94 have been posted at Eternal Central in the last seven days. The first one is a report from the tournament during eternal weekend, with great pictures and a whole bunch of sweet decks. It is really hard to pick a personal favorite of the decks played there, but one of them that sticks out is David Schooley's MonoBlack. As many of you probably know, there is a rule stating that unless you play with opaque sleeves, you can't play with cards from Alpha unless all of your cards are from Alpha (due to the visibly rounder corners). David plays with clear sleeves. This is the first all-Alpha deck I've ever seen somebody actually play. Very impressive.
Who needs Underworld Dreams in real monoblack?
Check out all the decks at and the full article at Eternal Central.

The second article at EC is written by Danny Friedman, and takes a deep look at different Stasis prison strategies. It's a great guide for anyone who wants to take their control game to the next level, and gives a lot of history and insight to the archetype.
Kalle Nord's Stasis from Stabcon two weeks ago. Went 1-3, but a very nice looking deck :)
What else? It looks like a 93/94 community in Oslo is starting to emerge. It seems that the first meetup will be next weekend, though I unfortunately wont be able to join myself. My roommate Hardy and I are travelling down to Munich for Starkbierfest during the weekend. Our Saturday in Munich is pretty open btw, so it would be really sweet if we could meet up with the Regensburg players again. We'll bring a couple of decks just in case.

It doesn't look like there will be a report from StabCon unfortunately. From what I've heard, there were 15 players competing, and the top4 consisted of The Deck, UWR Skies, Mono Red Atog and Nether Void Prison. The eventual champion was Carl "Tibia" Olzon with his UWR Skies.

So, now go and read about Stasis and Eternal weekend at Eternal Central :)

  1. Hi MG and Hardy,

    in case you are still free on saturday: How about visiting me in Munich and playing some games of 93-94-magic before going to the Nockherberg Starkbierfest?

    It would be great to turn some creatures sideways against the format gurus.

    I don't have that many cards, though. So, you bring the decks, I bring the beer. ;)

    Feel free to contact me if that sounds good for you: A.Schneider1204@gmx.de

    Best regards,
    Andreas
