Pucatrade Christmas in July – Secret Santa

Hello, Friends! Been a bit of a break for old Strictly here.  I have been dealing with some Real Life things and some minor health things.  But I am doing well, and feeling well. Gonna make it a serious go for starting up writing on a regular basis again.  To kick this off, I am going back to where I started with many of you, Secret Santa! Yeah, I am a few months early, so we are doing a Christmas in July.  For this Secret Santa event, I am handing my Santa hat over to my really good friend Kriple.

Standard Decknology: Delirium’s not Dead Yet

Throughout my short sabbatical of releasing content, I have still remained active in my Standard League that I am running on Xmage. In this league, I allow the players to swap the decks they play each week. Due to some circumstances beyond my control ( not working on the platform) I struggled for a few weeks to find a deck that was good against the variety of the metagame. In a recent Erich Froehlich Deck of the Day article on CFB, he covered a 4 Color Delirium list that I found to be very intriguing.  So I queued it up as my deck
