BYOT Tourney report…

May 30, 2008

So last Friday, Edgeworld hosted a sweet BYOT tourney. For those not familiar, BYOT is a format in which all cards in your deck MUST reference the team that you are playing. Erick amusingly calls it the “anti-legend” format, as all cards that are legend stamped tend to refer to the character, as opposed to the team. In any case, myself and my fellow Realmers (Josh and Andrew) decided we would go as it was a format that interested us all.

Well, that morning, I got into work at 5 in the morning, and seeing as I thought I’d be off by 2, I figured I could go home, build my deck, get some rest, and then head out to the Realms for some light playtesting, before heading to the tourney.

Thats not what happened.

I ended leaving work at 5, and having no time to build my deck, I headed home to pick up my DLS and DSM cards, after which I sped to Realms, with the idea of building a Darkseid deck, based around “All Hail Darkseid” and using “Hordes of Apokolips” and “Dark Fury” to up my ATK, and do double burn damage by equipping my characters with “Beta Clubs”

Unfortunately, that was not to be the case.

Re-present? Ready, Set Love? whatever title, you wish…VS project

May 6, 2008

So, while today is not the first of the month, it does mark the beginning of a new project I and Runaway from “TheBraveandtheBlog” will be collaborating in.

You see, in honor of the BYOS events being sanctioned by UDE, as well as the fact that when it comes to building on a budget, BYOS is one of the coolest options, we’ve decided to honor Sets. BYOS is awesome because it gives you a limited card pool, and allows you to make flavorful as well as competitive decks. It allows you to find focus, and also makes it cheaper to build decks, seeing as you only have to invest in a set that features heroes (and villains) you feel a connection with. With this is mind, Run and I came up with this little project.

We’ll take it all one week at a time, and we’ll learn different things about a given set each week. Hidden Gems, High Tier Decks, story lines that influenced the set, we plan to discuss all that and more. It should make for some very fun, and hopefully very informative, 22 weeks or so.

And which set are we gonna start this all off with? While it would make sense to go straight from the beginning, Run and I felt that maybe the least loved sets should get the love first, and after a coin flip, this guy came out a winner. For our first installment of Ready, Set Love, we present;

Oh man, Stu Barnes is like, the MAN!*

Did you check out Stu Barnes article on the mothership yesterday? Along with being full of his usual clever and encouraging writing style, it also happened to talk a small bit about our HL, and used the pics that I posted up last week, showcasing our champs.

Not only that, but he called me a CREATIVE GENIUS! While I definitely appreciate the statement, I also feel that I’ve got to give the blog a little more love, as well as make some tweaks here and there too truly earn that remark.

Luckily for me, Runaway and I have been coming up with some schemes to keep us more involved with our blogs, as well as making it all fun.

Be ready, because fun and games are definitely coming up, and it all starts next week.
