So after all the points are calculated, I currently have 293 points for the season. I’m trying to think if I can do that in two weeks. I think I can. I have FNM this week, Monday Night Magic, and then the DC Open. I just have to do really well at all of them to reach the 400 seasonal needed for a bye.
So on that note, I have decided to switch up decks. Zameck Persist was neat, but a lot of interactions for me to properly remember all the time. And occasionally a little bit too much on the luck of the draw side. I want to play with a low curve deck that uses Duskmantle Seer(aka Grumpy Cat), but I think I need to have it percolate some more. I loved that i had answers to all the things, but those answers were less then reliable from game to game.
So I have been working with the core of a B/W Zombies deck that seems really neat. I’ve been making tweaks to fit my play style a bit and adjust mana. For instance, I feel like in a deck like this, Tragic Slips are a must. So I’ve been trying to determine what I can take out without shaking the core to drastically so that I can have my Slips and avoid them too.
This weekend an affiliated shop of the LGS I go to normally is having a free Standard Tournament. I plan on going, even if I don’t win anything, so that I can deck test seriously before DC Open the following week.
Then the week after that I move. It will be a bummer missing GP Pittsburgh since it is the last one on the East Coast until Providence(which is a big up in the air right now), but I guess I’ll live. There are always opens, PTQs, and such to go to. And I hope to see people at them!
