Magic Launch Party

Yesterday was the launch party for the M 10 core set. Everyone was nice as usual, and I got a good card pool with good black, white, and blue, which I built a black-blue deck from. This deck got me in 13th out of 19. One card, called Safe Passage had artwork that caught my eye:

Now replace the fire with water and the army with poor middle eastern people. In case you havent noticed, this is a classic scene from passover, a Jewish holiday. Being that my cousin, William, is having his Bar-Mitzvah, I made a Jewish themed deck, here's the list:

25 plains

1 guirdian seraph, representing moses

2 serra angels, representing the passover angel

1 mesa enchantress, representing mariam

1 wall of faith, representing the last standing wall of the temple of solomon, the western wall

3 safe passages, representing the crossing of the red sea

1 path to exile, because moses was unable to enter the holy land, thus, in a way, exiled

1 mark of asylum, representing gods unceacing protection

4 pacifisms

4 gleam of resistances

4 asha's favors

4 valient guards

2 griffin sentinal

1 holy strength

1 indestructibility

1 strormfront pegasus

1 veteran swordsmith

1 veteran armorsmith

1 silvercoat lion

1 elite vanguard

This deck was even playable and its defences lasted so long I lost using this deck becuase I drew all of my 60 cards even though I still had some life left

To see these cards, simply go to, then click on magic: the gathering, then click gatherer and type the name of the card you are looking for

So, until next time, William, have a great Bar-Mitzvah and 13th birthday

Soccer Camp

This summer I decided to get back to soccer, so I went to a soccer camp one or two of my friends from school were there. The camp was a lot of fun, each day we would learn/practice a new technique(ex:dribbling on monday, passing on tuesday). I also made a few friends there too. On thursday, one of the coaches did a demonstration of of a flip throw-in which I'm going to work on(I can actually sort of do it).Here's a video of it:

On another note the core set M 10(short for Magic 2010) is coming out on july 17th the newest post has some of the cards I'll copy the pics.

One of my personal fovorites:

And there are plenty of old favorites!!

More Magic

Well the new card set Magic: The Gathering 2010 came out in july and brought along plenty of new cards and plenty of rule changes, and I have yet to get one. I'm going to my friend's house Tuesday and we'll play and practice the new rules. The set brings back the first five original planeswalkers. Turns out only 8 cards have survived from the beginning of Magic to now. I'm working on a Red-white deck to tag team with my friend's counter deck. Not much else, so bye.

Summer Kick-Off

The school year wasn't the best, but I'm looking up to the summer. So far it's been OK. There are new Magic: The Gathering card sets being released and I'm getting better every time I play. The thing that is most on my mind is the book I finished reading, called The Last Olympian.

The Last Olympian, written by Rick Riordan, is about what it would be like to be the son or daughter of a god or goddess of the ancient Greek culture, be hunted constantly by fearsome monsters, and ride a Pegasus. But there is one twist that makes this book and the prequels(The Lightning Theif being the first) so good is that they are set in the modern U.S.A. The seiries follows Percy Jackson, a half-god(or demigods or half-bloods, more officially), and his friends Annabeth Chase, another demigod, Grover Underwood, a satyr(greek half-man, half-goat), and Rachel Dare, a mortal who can see through the magical veil called the Mist, as they fight in the final battle f0r Mount Olympus, which is now located in the sky above the Empire State Building. I would recomend this seiries to ANYONE(there are teachers I know who really liked the seiries) who likes a fun, funny, or otherwise entertaining read.
