All of the rules and the contents page are now posted at The MTG Rules Resource page.  More editing is needed to make it a smoother read, but its there.  By the way, it works great on your smart phone.  If you haven't given it a look, do so, you might find it very useful.

Building a Deck Is Easy, Tuning It Up Is The Harder Part

There’s a lot out there online about deck building, but I want to go out on a limb and say that deck building isn’t what’s really important.  (Pauses while collective gasp goes out from the masses).  It’s not deck building that makes a good deck, its deck tuning.  Let’s be honest, you could make a hundred decks, and in their very first form ninety-nine will probably suck, until they get tuned anyway.  Yes it’s important to build a deck with a solid strategy, a sense of tempo, an understanding of balance and the proper mana curve, but a new deck will always be just that, a new deck, one that it is untested and untried.  It’s what happens next that will determine whether that new deck becomes a good deck, or even a great one.

Most of you have heard of 'broken' cards.  For those that haven't, we'll get into that in a bit.  This is the first in a semi-regular series of what I'm calling broke back cards.

Awesome Humor Site

If you love the game, but also know that it's just a game (unlike that weird, chunky, smelly guy at FNM who you just know is staying alive solely on a diet of ensure shakes and MTG Online 24-7), then check out The Magic Lampoon.

Are they funny?  Check this out...

If you are laughing, and God knows I did, then check out the site.
