I've been playing magic since Judgment, but only got involved in organised play when Lorwyn came out. Since then I've developed my game and built up a reputation as a deckbuilder. I spent a decent amount of time on the Wizards Forums spawned several standard archetypes, most famously Twin Sanity, but also the RUG land destruction deck during SOA-ZEN, Tezz-Infect and RWB Reanimator. I made the Pro Tour for the first Modern event in Philadelphia.

Crucible of Words – You see me Trollin’ by Cyrus Bales

I've been very busy with other elements of life and my only magic based time was spent working on standard for the PTQ's. Now that they are all finished with for me, I'll spend today talking about what I am/was playing in standard at the moment.

Crucible of Words – BG in Modern, Decklist and Tournament Report...

Greetings, last week was PTQ London, the last Modern PTQ I'll be able to attend, since the one in Dundee this weekend is just a little too out of the way for me. The week before I lost in the final playing Jund, this week I expected a metagame shift so built accordingly with a "home brew".

Crucible of Words – Fanboy3 Manchester 2013 Modern PTQ 2nd Place...

This weekend just gone saw PTQ Manchester take place with over 160 players. Being the modern format, but without Bloodbraid Elf and Seething Song, it offered us something a little different, this week I’ll talk about the deck I played, why I played it and give you a tournament report.

Crucible of Words – Modern Confidant Reckoning by Cyrus Bales

With everyone scrounging for a deck to play in modern, I thought I'd throw out an idea I had the other day, unsurprisingly it's black, red and white.

Crucible of Words – Dusk ‘Till Dawn: UB Combo by Cyrus...

This week I thought I’d share my thoughts on a potential new combo deck for Modern. The most notable thing about the deck, is that it’s UB, the colour of busted combo decks, Thopter-Depths and Mystical Reanimator spring to mind.

Crucible of Words – Rocky Bilbao: GP Bilbao Report by Cyrus...

Recently I went to GP Bilbao, rather than the usual tournament report I would normally do, I’ll instead be recounting several tales of hilarity and bad beats encountered by myself and the other travelling players from the UK. I'll post another article with my decklist later on.

I like the layout of the website it is easy to find what i want. I also really enjoy the newsletter you guys periodically release
They have such a good range of cards and are 100% helpful with restocking, answering any questions you might have, and have great trade prices for those cards you want to sell.
Brilliant service from them I contacted them about my order and they got back to me straight away (no joke). I Will be useing them from now on and will be telling every one I know to use them as well. If I could give them a 6 out of 5 I would.
