San Diego Deck Techs

Good Day MTG folks,

Still trapped in Toronto for a week of meetings which means we may not be able to get regular daily posts up on MTG Realm - so hang in until we return back to the mothership in Barrie by week's end.

Anywhoos - odd thing happened tonight. We trudged across the street from the hotel we're staying at to our new fav game store (401 Games) to get a couple of cards and we bump into a buddy from Barrie - wow. Especially so if one considers the population of Toronto is about 2.5 million and the GTA (Greater Toronto Area) is around 5.6 million - we assume the improbable but guess local gamery stores are strong magnets for MTG fans and should expect to bump into someone we know from time to time.

Right - anyways, our buddy 'Anakin' was able to oblige us and we did a round of decktesting with the new builds we have going. Anakin's Kor tech and blue-white build were rather brilliant so much fun was had.

Speaking of deck tech, make sure you check out these videos from WoTC from the recent Pro Tour-San Diego 2010 last weekend where German player Simon Görtzen Jund build took him to the top. The Player field looked like this . . .

1. Simon Görtzen (Jund)

2. Kyle Boggemes (Jund)
3. Luis Scott-Vargas (Boss Naya)
4. Craig Wescoe (White Weenie)
5. Daniel Gräfensteiner (Junk)
6. Niels Viaene (Esper Control)
7. Yoshihiko Ikawa (Jund)
8. Jeroen Kanis (Mono-Red)

Righto - The Deck Tech we had promised earlier . . .

The decklist you've listed for the White Weenie deck is definately not the deck from the video :)
