Two days ago, I thought I was onto something great. At the time, I had a 21-4 record on Magic Online with a unique deck and was poised to make slight perfections to it before unveiling it to the world today.
Yesterday was a different story.
Within 24 hours, the decks I was playing against seemed to dramatically change. They became leaner, more efficient, and began doing similar things to what I was trying to do. I was still winning, maybe not as much, but the tide was turning. Standard was evolving and fast.
My plan to write a primer today quickly lost its luster. I no longer could justify doing so as presenting information in that way ran too high the risk of being irrelevant by the time this weekend rolls around. There was also the increasingly realistic chance that the information I provided was flawed. Instead I've decided to talk about one specific aspect of Standard and bestow onto you everything I know about…
I've played a metric ton with a large portion of the red cards at this point, and there's a lot of things I've learned. I'm going to present the information in a unique way, so I'd love to know if you liked this process.
