Hello Ladies and Gentlenerds,

Week 4 was amazing and it is done and over. Thank you guys for getting your games in and communicating with me about what is going on.

I have good news and bad news.

Bad news first Skjall has dropped from the League due to computer issues, and ‘no silver bullet’ has dropped due to time crunch, as has Thejerkwidasmirk. Thanks guys for letting me know, and please try again next league. I would love to have you back.

I am also doing the thing I hate to do and removing some inactive players. Again these are folks who haven’t played in the last two weeks, but have also went radio silent on me. I send weekly emails on the weekend to everyone who hasn’t reported wins or losses. Most of you guys are just amazing at letting me know what’s going on. I welcome all of these guys back for the next league as well, and If you want to play some more with us this time let me know, I’ll work you back in.

I’m also removing

If you love something, set it free, and if it comes back to you keep it in a jar in the closet so it can’t get away again … or something like that, right.

So that takes us to 34 people.

The good news now, please.

M15 is legal! Play those cards, guys! Some pretty cool stuff going on right now! It’s a core set, and I have to say I haven’t been this excited about a core set sense 7th Edition. Frost Lynx is an early runner for my favorite card in set. I did have 3 in the Prerelease Sealed I did.

Another thing!

Cube Fever is going around. There is no cure. I have a cube. Its Modern. It’s online. Its Silverblack. Its a 720. If you guys ever want to draft it let me know. I’ve never got to draft it. I have all the cards for it, and think it would be tons of fun.

Deck lists!

Carnuz and denofbears have been super cool about sharing some deck lists with me and I wanted to include some of them for you guys to look over. I am also doing one of mine! Everybody likes deck lists, I always say.

This is Dega Control. It’s a deck full of bees. Mean bees.
