[MtG] Angels and Dragons

I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned on my WordPress before that I play Magic the Gathering. Not very well at all, but it’s all good fun. I had a spare hour or so a few weekends ago while waiting for Fallout 3 to install, and decided to try my hand at building an EDH deck – I enjoyed it the last few times I played it (borrowing a friend’s deck), and kind of want to give it a proper go.

The ‘theme’ I had in mind was based around my general Aurelia, and her ability to let my creatures fight two combat rounds a turn. I’ve tried to go for hard-hitting creatures, accompanied by enchantments and the like that will buff up my creatures and enable them to hopefully and quickly smash through defences. After some trading at FNM, though, I am also now the proud owner of Gisela, Sword of Goldnight – so I’m not sure which angel will be leading my deck now! At the moment, though, I’m going for Gisela.

The idea behind the deck is using recurring combat phases to quickly deal lots of damage to my opponent directly – an ideal turn would be Aurelia’s Fury tapping down most (if not all!) defending creatures, and then attacking three or so times with Aurelia and the Hellkite Charger. I haven’t had a chance to try it yet, but I’m looking forward to giving it a go.

Take care,

Ben
