Strictly Eternal 101 – Rejoice! For it is As Foretold!

Howdy folks!  We’re here yet again for another edition of Finding Happiness the Nicol Bolas Way, or rather some spicy Legacy tidbits! This week we’re looking at a stupendously spicy list based around and locking your opponent out of the game!  I took this list for a whirl on XMage and had a fantastic time with it! Let’s take a look at the list! Planeswalkers (8) 3 4 1 Instants/Sorceries (15) 4 3 4 2 2 Artifacts (8) 1 2 2 3 Enchantments (8) 4 4 Lands (21) 1 2 2 2 5 1 4 1 3 Sideboard (15) 1

Strictly Eternal 101 – Erector Sets for Dummies

Howdy folks! It’s time for another edition of Rector: I Hardly Knew Her; an Introspective Look into the History of the Erector Set! Or rather, a little ditty about Legacy.

A lot of this card’s hype has to do with possible applications in Modern (even in Modern I don’t see it being effective). But it’s also caused speculation on

Strictly Eternal 101 – Cartman and the Probe

Howdy everybody!  It’s Joe again with another installment of Oh My God, You Killed Kenny!: An Introspective Documentary.  Well, not really.  We’re talking about Legacy again, and we’re rambling a bit this time, because that’s what I like to do. Let’s get to the thick of it, shall we? Gitaxian Probe Let me get started by putting it out there: I think Phyrexian Mana is just about the worst, most possibly overly broken mechanic that has ever been created.  I don’t think Dredge, Storm, or even Affinity compare to the absurdity of Phyrexian Mana. It’s that much of a mistake.
