MTGO Sealed Practising Part 2

So I ended up submitting URW (as the eagle eyed readers might have spotted from my basic land count on the right of the pic in the previous post).
It seemed to have a decent mix of stuff early for stalling (white 2 drops, lobber crews) and meat at the top end (skywatch, chaos imps, archon, sphinx)
However it certainly didnt have a core of one guild with a splash of a third linked guild as i usually prefer. it was pure 3 colour, with little fixing, thus the mana was pretty shocking.

Having previously suffered at the claws of the Tyraninds on the plains of G'lesent Four The Imperial Guard have mustered in force to Purge The Alien from the world. Can they succeed where others have failed?

Gun line vs Green tide, which will triumph?

Standard at the Games Club 8/11

Pat Chapin drew my attention to this particular beauty from a recent SCG standard open:

Wow. Yes, it kinda looks like a pile at a cursory glance. Nightshade Peddler? hes not even that good in limited! But how could i resist the chance to play Izzet Staticasters in the main deck? And Zealous Conscripts & Deadeye navigator?! Bliss! i had to try it.
I've not included the board as i didnt have hardly any of it. In fact i was short a few cards from the main deck, but i figured id be able to borrow those.
Read on for how it went!

MTGO Sealed Practicing PT 1

I thought id try and keep my eye in on Return to Ravnica Sealed in case i make it to any of the PTQ's this season so i entered an online daily sealed. 4 rounds of swiss with prizes distributed on your record. Opened this, which at first glance, looks really good:

Friday Night Gaming

More Descent and Hexing in East London
The valiant E.L.F gamers barved to foul weather and crazy drivers to  go dungeon delving once again in their Descent 2nd Edition Campaign. But could the Heroes pull back some honour having lost both parts of the previous encounter at the Masquerade Ball or will the Half Dragon Lieutenant of the Overlord crush them in a canyon before they even get to the second encounter?
Small board, big monsters, scared heroes. Who will win? there's only one way to find out, FIGHT!

Playing more 40k! In Bromley!

Explorator fleet Porascus landed on the twelfth planet of the star system 34P-Epsilon-minor, newly designated as The Bromite System. Less  than twenty four hours after first touching down on the surface all contact was lost with the landing teams. What the Roxnien 67th Imperial Guard Regiment found when they went planetside would haunt them for the rest of their lives, but how long would that be?

Don't be afraid my Guard couldn't lose a fourth game in a row, could they?
This was my first time playing against two new armies as Lee, Charlie and I got through four games in one day.

Playing 40k!

Deep in the heart of the Ghoul Stars lies the world of Karlstan Prime, a resupply point for the Draloona Crusade Fleet. Tactically insignificant until an ancient warp artefact is unearthed by the planets Planetary Defence Force. Can the Marine Chapter attached to the Crusade Fleet Make safe the planet by finding and destroying the artefact or will the PDF release the power of the warp?

Nic has reworked his Marine bike list to include more dakka, how will the Guard far against this new list?
