Twisting & Turning Destruction - Bradley Simpson (8/13/2008)

On a boring Sunday evening at my in-laws' house, my wife and I were seriously in need of entertainment. My son was quietly playing with his grandmother and I suggested maybe we could playtest some of my spare Magic decks. My spouse usually finds my hobby of the addictive card game to be totally abhorrent. I got a rare break through for sure. She agreed to play one game against me for the heck of it. I allowed her to use my Cat Scratch Fever deck that I had from the article I wrote a while back. I used a pure white Peacekeeper

aW5nIEFyY2FuaXg=. The white deck created ultimate lockup and immunity to damage while the Cat deck ended up with one milling effect artifact that killed the white deck in the end. No more cards in the deck. Puh. Needless to say, my wife was thrilled and wanted to whomp me again.

I gave her access to my considerable collection of green which goes back to Alpha and she made herself a brand-spanking new green deck which looks promising. She enjoys creatures with trample and tends to make fairly functional beatdown decks.

Criticizing my wife's gameplay would not be complete without analyzing my own strategies as well. I found it might work well in multi-player considering I quickly ramped up to prevent lots of damage and stop creatures from attacking dead in their tracks. It doesn't handle land and artifact destruction very well. Not to mention the milling that she used to whomp me.
