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.

What can I say, I came from Wayland's forge and have been there for some time, eventually starting my own D&D session being a DM. The tables provided with the number of players in my group wasn’t to my liking at Waylands, as it didn’t scale well with my group. Which, is understandable with the store giving priority to larger groups (My group consist of 4 players and me as DM and most other group are 6 people). This is when I contacted ManaLeak.Com Birmingham and to my surprise, one of the staff wholesomely greeted me and made me felt welcomed. Telling me that the store caters for D&D, MTG and other hobbyist traditional games, I took it to have a check with my group and book in one of the weeks. The following week, we were welcomed by friendly faces telling me the reserved table was and that refreshment were there for us. This wasn’t needed but I admire the admiration that is placed for new customers, and that my friends felt comfortable knowing that they can have something to eat whiles easing into a new environment. The store in the early afternoon is peaceful and relaxing, when it does get late, people in the store respects others presence which makes the atmosphere peaceful. The tables are must larger which helps me keep track of items instead of putting it under the table like I use to, chairs are comfortable and what I really appreciate is that there’s space so that everyone doesn’t feel cramped. Now I go there weekly with my friends, knowing a table is to our liking, were not cramped and can move tables if I feel that it’s an issue without being told off. There’s an archive full of MTG cards, if we felt like buying the singles if we wanted to play a quick MTG game and that I don’t have to shout over others to be heard as the store is quite large. A bonus is that I never felt the need to worry about snacks, drinks and light food as the store has a variety of items that are well priced to buy. One of the day this week my friend had a birthday so we thought that ordering a pizza whiles playing D&D would be great. I told the staff a day prior and he was more than happy to allow it, this was great because like I mentioned before the tables being large worked well for food we ordered which was pizzas. That was a good day and that wouldn’t happen without the store being generous, that’s why I am happy to recommend this store to anyone who are interested in TCG, board games, D&D and other games. I want to thank especially Tu Manaleak Nguyen, for helping me and my friend be regular customers.
Really great service - from the comprehensive information on the website to the well packaged MTG cards when they arrived. The free cards I received when part of my order was delayed speaks volumes for the customer service Manaleak provides. Just placed my second order, and I'm sure there'll be many more. Thank you.
As I sit here drinking my tea and writing this short review, I look at my (recently used) Chaos Predator tank and reminded myself about my game that was played at Manaleak.com in Birmingham... The exterior is, infact misleading, and upon entering the complex, the interior was as if I entered an office! Climbing up the stairs and following the signs, I finally arrive at Manaleak.com; the place was lovely and spacious, full of refreshments and essentials needed for all sorts of games, be it tabletop or card games! Store manager was pretty cool, allowed me and a friend to play a game of Warhammer 40k (even took photos of the game, swell guys!) but I suppose what has impressed me is their knowledge and awesomeness, as well as the atmosphere - which was pretty cool... Service was pretty good too, I might add! I'd highly recommend Manaleak.com to all sorts of people, even if it’s just a catch up with some friends or (in my case!) battling over tabletop supremacy!!!
