[Magic Mondays] That Pro Tour

MY co,umn about Magic: The GahteringMany who might be reading this are already aware that Tom Martell took PT Gatecrash with his “The Aristocrats” deck, which,  believe it or not, was RWB Aggro-Control. I’ve been trying to crack the wedge since the Baltimore Open and a solution is finally here. I mean look at the list run by both him and Sam Black as opposed to my Baltimore list. There are some definite gaps with Gatecrash having not been around, but I feel like had that weekend not been so soul crushing, I likely would have stuck with this list and been in a spot that was ready to just slot the Reckoner and Shocks in.

Always trust my gut, it would seem.

Other than that, there isn’t much to talk about. I don’t get any play this weekend as I was at a wedding with Rei. Going over to The Pillage tonight for some Monday Night Standard so I can get Life Bomb(WB Vizkopia Guildmage+ Exquisite Blood combo) in order so I have something to play in Standard side events should I scrub out at Charlotte.  Hopefully my phone doesn’t die before I even get my cards this time and I’ll actually be able to tweet about the rounds.

For any who are going to be at GP Charlotte, drop me a line here or on Twitter.

See ya’ll next time!
