The boys are back! Broadcasting from their socially isolated bunkers throughout Logan Square, Lords Petray, Elleman & Moss catch up on the evolved OS MTG scene in Chicago. Plus, a special guest joins via ham radio…
We decamped to rural Illinois, to a building reminiscent of the Great Northern from Twin Peaks. We're in paradise. There’s been a day of carousing, singing, reconnecting. Hugs, handshakes, karaoke. Now it is tournament day. The Lords of the Pit are wearing their cuts, backpatches menacing, the originators of a now worldwide trend. The out-of-towners played side games to stay sharp.
It's the finals of first Middle School Lords League. Greg Kotscharjan and Lorien Elleman made it through all three trimesters to the top four, and here there are squaring off for all the glory. Greg just lost game one of match one. (More on this "match one" business below...)
I proudly fly the Red/White banner as often as possible in 93/94, but often in the heavy guns department. Maindeck Blood Moon, Earthquake, Nevinyrral’s Disk. I like the answers broad and all encompassing. For this event, I shed the big answers in favor of an archetype I hadn’t explored much: full-fledged aggro.
