I'm a mathematics major at Rowan University full time, and work as a store clerk part time. I'm just like everyone else who is going to college.
Please enjoy my Tumblr.



Deceptively smooth.

 

Also, I went 1-4 against Keith tonight

mikerickson:

His new Zur deck is fucking disgusting.  It got so bad I had to Plague Wind it while it was the only creature on the field.

This bad boy is being benched until further notice.

He’ll be my “break glass when having a bad night” deck, which is a thing now.

And yeah, my only board presence got plague winded by Mike… it was a bullshit play, but hilarious at the same time.

Okay, so the tourney went poorly, but that’s no big deal, I’ll post details later but right now look at this haul… 65 dollars worth in one night.

Magic the Gathering Personality Test

mikerickson:

You are a Samurai (CAIG)
Competitive Aggresive Inflexible Game-player

You are an aggressive powerful warrior who loves to make bold attacks on your opponents. You get a lot enjoyment out of the game, but you want more than just to play for fun. Your aim is to compete and you compete to win. Your focus is locked onto your game. You build decks that bring you victory. You don’t waste your time messing about with experimental or weird combinations - you want the deck that’s going to help you win. That means picking the right cards and using them the right way. You’re quite prepared to get the basic structure for your deck from somebody else - the important thing isn’t where it comes from, it’s the performance you get out of it that counts.

I don’t think I’m that competitive like it describes, but everything else is spot-on.

Supercomputer (CDFG)

Competitive Defensive Flexible Game-player

You’re a serious player who’s out there to win. You handle a lot of complex strategic ideas, gradually number-crunching and thinking your way to victory. ‘That’s the just the way it is’ is the attitude of lesser beings than you. You’re always analysing your game while it’s happening and if things don’t work out the way you want them to, you’ll assess them frankly. If you didn’t play as well as you could have done then you’ll admit the mistake. You know that it’s only by acknowledging your weaknesses that you become stronger. 

You think a lot about how you play. Great ideas for your strategy hit you when you’re in the shower or driving along the road. You know the value of preparation but you also know that it’s never possible to predict exactly what’s going to happen in a game. If things aren’t working out quite how you expect them to, you think on your feet, changing your calculations until it all adds up.

You’re by nature a defensive player. You believe in taking measured and carefully reasoned out moves rather than piling everything in for a big attack as soon as the game begins. You’re not a big risk-taker. As far as you’re concerned laying everything on the line to take a chance is a sign of weakness. There’s no need to risk jeopardising everything when you have everything under control.

We say: When it comes to thinking things out before a game and thinking on your feet during it, nobody does it better. It’s impressive how you spend your time working on improving your game, studying strategy articles and thinking things through. Developing your person-watching skills will make you even better. You’ll get advance warning about what your opponent’s going to do by noticing his reactions to what he draws. Some people will pull some pretty smart tricks - chatting to you before the game to lull you into a false sense of security, talking to you during the game to get you where they want you. People like you who focus purely on the game are being genuine when they do this, but others may not be… Be ready for when you play against people like this - nobody can read you like a book, but Supercomputers run the risk of getting hacked.

Accurate for myself and for Mike, now it’s time for Alex to take this thing.

Friday, midnight sealed pre-release event?

I’m in.

So as it turns out, I found some lithographs from my favorite landscape artist, John Avon. I could but one of these in a 33” x 23” print for only $19.99, or I can buy these five for $79.99.
I think I need to make a purchase.

I’m going to attempt a different style of control.
