Raising The Mardu Banner
Had an epic night of Magic with some friends!
We played a little four round friendly competition with Sarah, Steve and I playing our new Clan decks, Abzan, Sultai and Mardu, respectively, as well as Fordie playing with my black/ white enchantment control.
I managed to come top with two wins and a draw, as well as taking the final from Steve, after a closely fought 2-1, which I only managed to win the third game of on turn five after the timer.
We have managed to get Fordie hooked and sent him home with a nice big stack of cards both Sarah and I have playsets of. He will be heading to our local shop to try and grab some of the free starter noob packs (I have no idea what you actually call them) and we will be giving him a hand to put a deck together ready for FNM in a couple of weeks.
He is loving the black/ white and I look forward to welcoming him into the Orzhov, for Orzhov is my Guild and Mardu is my Clan.
Feeling a bit more confident about my deck for Friday, but still will be tinkering until then.
Loving my about turn on Khans and the three colour thing, and was proudly wearing my Mardu badge tonight.
So good to be feeling the Magic love, especially after how much the Saturday prerelease day made me feel awful (although Sunday was much better), and I look forward to the EDH challenge session Toxic and I have booked on Friday morning.
How are you guys feeling about khans of Tarkir and what Clans are you raising the banner for?

Came home to these beauties yesterday.
Going against my usual in so many ways at the moment as I really wasn’t feeling Khans on the first day of prerelease and wanted no truck with the three colour thing. But after playing Mardu on the Sunday, I really enjoyed the clan and decided to actual buy a bunch of cards I wanted, rather than obsnitantly using what I have.
Plus I am actually playing a deck that is almost entirely the current set, which is pretty much a first since the kitchen table days.
Feels good to have playsets of Ankle Shankers, Chiefs of the Edge & Scale and Mardu Hateblades.
It’s going to be some serious aggro warriors of smacking face.
The Suspension Fields are for my black/ white enchantment control and faux extort deck, which is more of my regular thing, being mostly Theros block stuff.
Will make some Sebious Speaks talking more about my Standard and EDH decks soon.
Hopefully going to get to take the deck for a test drive against some friends tonight, ahead of it’s proper debut at FNM on Friday.

I did like the purge, but I think I know what you mean mate. Got your box that day. Thank you so much mate. Might take me a while to get to and then through those books, but they look awesome :-)
Tuesday 30th September
Got up and ready for heading home.
Poured over The End Times a little more, before we had to head off.
As far as journeys home go, it was relatively painless and went rather quickly.
Felt utterly Kirked and in a lot of pain, but so good to be home.
Came home to new cards, which instantly went in my deck to replace proxys.
Made a whole post about my new cards and stuff, but the app ate it and I rage quit it for another time.
Camped in bed and epically binged On The League, while eating takeout and making some waivers.
Now utterly pooped and so ready for sleep in my own bed.
Looking forward to Minecraft, massage and Magic tomorrow, as well as taking the rest of the week a little easy in anticipation of hopefully getting back on things next week.
Hope you guys are doing good :-)
