I am pretty sure I have not played a game of this in the last year.

My MODO update screen is advertising that Tenth Edition is now available in the online store.
My first thought was Joan of Arc but she would not have a wind sword she would have a fire sword <___<

Oh, I guess. The PEs still happen, though. Because who doesn't want to sit down for 6+ hours of magic in their underwear?

beep boop plusing about draft decks

So this is a deck I decided to force. I didn't go with my pick 1 rare this time! Epic Proportions was just out of proportion from all the green cards that I saw, it wasn't worth running. Then Dreamspoiler Witches came along.
13 people for tonight's, well, yesterday's FNM. So I'm at a 6-person table. Mind you, I've seen others pilot this with good results in full 8-man drafts. Anyway. Here's my 6 wins, no losses version:

Deck:
Ponder
Spellstutter Sprite (2)
Ringskipper (2)
Silvergill Douser (2)
Footbottom Feast
Faerie Trickery
Eyeblight's Ending
Sentinels of Glen Elendra (2)
Dreamspoiler Witches
Scattering Stroke
Makeshift Mannequin
Warren Pilferers (2)
Final Revels
Mulldrifter
AEthersnipe (3)
Mournwhelk (2)
Island (10)
Swamp (6)

And in the side:
Glimmerdust Nap
Mournwhelk
Hoarder's Greed
Protective Bubble
Deeptread Merrow (2)
Ego Erasure
Thieving Sprite
Nightshade Stinger
Tideshaper Mystic (2)
Nine irrelevant cards.

Ringskippers, you say. Well they fill out my deck. And are faeries.
So, Pros: you have removal. Always important. Being able to bounce enemy creatures while making 4/4s is crucial. A 4/4 will often be the biggest thing on the field. The ridiculous amount of card advantage will win the long game easily. Recursion engine+Mulldrifter is nuts. This deck refused to let me lose, despite horrible misplays and inability to perform basic math this deck kept putting cards into my hand, graveyard, and into play, and swinging with them to win without my interference.
Cons: Can't keep low land hands reliably, slow.

Obviously Shriekmaw would break in half in this deck, but I never saw one. Never saw Pestermite, either, which is another awesome card in this archetype. Most of the stuff is common, grab the AEthersnipes while you can, Warren Pilferers are awesome, I'm surprised how easy it is to force. PS Footbottom Feast will break your opponent's back in the late game, fit one into your draft when you get a chance.
How can I explain? I need you here, and not here too.

Woah woah woah, what's all this about modo crashing then

Truestory: I decided to draft one day. I tried to log on and was unable. "I guess I'll just wait til later then." "Later" ended up meaning months later.
Azi: are we playing cluedo or something
MCP: i'm gripping it by less than the whole hand, but by more than just the tips of the fingers. if that helps any.
